Henry Robinson, Settler, Scout and Indian Fighter
Henry M. Robinson was born in England in 1811 and it seems that he came to the New World alone. In October 1834 he married Evaliza Christine “Cherokee” LaGrone. Their first child, Elizabeth, was born in Alabama. Their second child, John F. was born in 1837 in Sabine County, Texas. Of their nine children, the seventh child Andrew Henry, was born in Uvalde County, Texas November 24, 1850, to be followed by William Harrison and Ann.
It seems that the family arrived in Texas in time to be part of the Texas Revolution. At the request of Houston, his friend, Henry did his part at Goliad and helped in the evacuation of Texas during the Runaway Scrape. He was rewarded a head right of 1180 acres.
