  • Note:
    This death date 1898 in Fayette, Sanpete, Utah for USMB Wm J. Robinson is incorrect. I figured I could find the family still living in Faytte Utah on the 1900 census and I did.
    I then traced them back through the census years. But in all the census where William Robinson is listed with this family, he was born 25 July 1816 in England instead of 1828 Ireland. It was a great idea, but it just proved the 1898 death date in Utah is incorrect. The census work for the non USMB William Robinson follows:


    Supposedly William J. Robinson died 1898 in Fayette, Utah.
    I looked for the family that would still be there two years later.
