Two identical Photos of Sylvia Robinson of Hamilton, Massachusetts
Two identical photographs taken in 1905 by the studio of F. W. Blake of Beverly, Massachusetts. The reverse has this text: Sylvia Robinson, '87-'05
From online research, hopefully correct:
I believe this is the Sylvia Robinson who was born in November of 1887 in Massachusetts. Her mother was Caroline (?) Robinson, who was born about 1850 in Massachusetts.
My limited information comes from the 1900 Census of Hamilton, Massachusetts, which shows a household headed by Lucy Robinson, either the sister or sister-in-law of Sylvia's father, and containing Caroline and her family.
I found Sylvia Robinson also in the 1910-1930 Censuses of Hamilton, Massachusetts. As of the 1930 Census, she was a bookkeeper and single.
If you have any corrections, additions or insights regarding the information presented above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
