Robinson, Matilda Sarah

Birth Name Robinson, Matilda Sarah
Gender female


Robert and Flora had a daughter Cora who died young. They also had an adopted daughter, Cora Adams. Cora's marriage record to Royden W. Sanborn says her parents were James Adams and Flora McPherson. Flora McPherson Adams died at age 34, in 1897, which might be why Cora was with Robert and Flora, who had lost 2 young children of their own in 1893. She was listed as a daughter in the obituary of James Adams, but was also in all of the Ellis family obituaries. Robert Kennedy, Luella's son, married Cora's daughter Charlotte who he met when he went to New Hampshire to work for his uncle Roy Sanborn.
