Looking for Robbins of Stephens County, Tx:

Searching for any information on the Robbins who moved to Stephens County from the 1800 till today. In 1858 Tx Legislature established Stephens County from Bosque County land.

In 1870 only 300 people live there. By 1880 the county population grew to 4,725. And 45% of those were born in Tx, the rest came from Tennessee, Missoure, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama.
