I have been working on this non stop for several days now and I think I have it figured out to some degree. See what you think...it isn't easy to follow. I talked to my husband's grandmother some years ago and much of the information came from her. She has passed on now and I just have my notes to go by. Her name was odd Bashie Lee, but I found a Pasha L in the right area and age and such, I am pretty sure it is her. Given the errors in census records that one isn't a big jump. 1880 Burleson Tx William Robinson 35 GA GA GA Sarah27 Mis Mis Ala Margaret M10 TX GA Mis Mary Emma7 TX GA Mis Pasha L2 TX GA Mis
In 1870 Burleson TX William Robinson 23 Miss Sarah J18 GA
Sometime between 1880-1885 I think Sarah died and William re-married Mary in 1885 In 1900 Archer Co Prec 3 Dist 2 William Robinson 55 Dec 1845 GA SC GA Mary50 May 1850 AL Al AL Minnie13 Aug 1886 Tx Ga AL Nora11 Aug 1888 Tx GA AL Arthur9 Nov 1890 TX GA AL Frank7 Feb 1893 TX GA AL
Frank will be the one that ties these families together. By 1910 I assume William & Mary pass on (leaving my Lee now an 'orphan') in 1910, in Young Co (neighboring county) I find Mary Emma (now Mollie McKelvy) with Arthur and Frank in her household as well as children from 2 marriages.

I jumped back a decade to try to figure out Mollie (Mary Emma's husband) 1900 Young Co TX Stayton Joseph H W M Dec 1868 31 M-7(1893) TX Miss ALA Mary E wife W F Oct 1874 25 M-7 3/1 TX ARK TX William A son W M Nov 1893 6 S TX TX TX
I did find a Joseph H on the 1920 census so I suspect she divorced him remarried McKelvy who then passed making her a widow.
In 1920 she is in Archer Co TX. In 1930 Frank is back in her household now as a widower.

That is it for my super sluething. What do you think? Do the puzzle pieces fit?
