In Reply to: Re: John Lafayette Puett & Elvira H. Robinson family by Lori Briggs of 110

Here's what I have on that family. I would certainly like to share info, especially on the Robinson line. Where was William Robinson enumerated in the 1900 census?

Thanks,
Jerry Taylor


First Generation

1. John Lafayette "Fate" Puett1,2 was born on 5 Apr 1860 in Cherokee County, North Carolina. He died in 1928 in Jackson County, Oklahoma. He was buried in Olustee Cemetery, Jackson County, OK.

John Lafayette "Fate" Puett and Elvira H. Robinson were married on 27 Feb 1884 in Towns County, Georgia. Elvira H. Robinson (daughter of William "Billy" Robinson and Harriett Elizabeth Green) was born on 17 Mar 1859 in Union County, Georgia. She died on 29 May 1906 in Olustee, Oklahoma. She was buried in Olustee Cemetery, Jackson County, OK.

Her obituary, written by her brother-in-law J. R. Crain, is as follows:

Virah Puett, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Robinson and wife of J. L. Puett formerly of Peach Tree, N. C. ------- Mrs. Puett was born the 17th of March 1859, and died near Olustee May the 29th, age 47 years. She was a consistent member of the Baptist church for 30 years, without a blot against her Christian character. She was married to J. L. Puett on the 27th of February 1884 at Hiawassee, Georgia. She left six children three of whom are following in her footsteps, and three younger ones that she consigned to a loving father's care. Her life was one of innocence and unselfish love. An affectionate wife, and untiring mother, was the sunshine and life of the now desolate home. But we should sorrow not as she died in the full triumph of an unshaken faith in her Savior. She leaves a weeping husband, mourning children and as many friends as all the people who knew her. "Being Dead She Yet Speaketh" She has conquered the last enemy and is at rest in the arms of her Redeemer. Her seat in church is vacant, the hearthstone so much used to her footsteps will hear the sound no more. Her life on earth is ended, her spiritual one is just begun, with Jesus forever to dwell. Husband, weep not, cling to the Cross of Christ, for soon there will be a reunion, such as was never known on earth. Children, be ready to join your dear mother in Glory. May God's blessings and kindnesses ever abide with our dear brother in the loss of his dear companion is our prayer. John Lafayette "Fate" Puett and Elvira H. Robinson had the following children:
