Mr. Tom Lindsey of Shottsville, Ala., visited Mr. and Mrs. L. A. Lindsey last week.

A couple of days ago I posted a newspaper tidbit about Caroline Green, daughter of John E. and Rachael [Emerson] Robinson. Above is a news item published in 1911 in the Itawamba County News newspaper about her sister, Martha Selena Robinson, who was married to Largus A. Lindsey in February 1885. Largus and Martha, who was a twin to Moran Parthenia Robinson, the youngest children of John and Rachel Robinson, did not have any children. When Martha died in 1923, Largus, who was several years younger than his wife, remarried to Clemmie Gullick, and next to Ellis Clayton Ridings. Here is Largus and Martha in the 1910 census.

I suspect that Martha Selena Robinson was probably named after Martha Selena (Meshow/Machow/Michaux) Kennedy and will post more later.
