Re: Alfred Robins m.1877 Bedfordshire,Eng.
Hi, thanks for the response about Alfred Robins, but it seems he's not the one we're seeking.
we have a very old newspaper clipping that shows Alfred and his wife celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in the 1920s.
By that time he was the grandfather of an Olympic champion boxer, Willie Smith of South Africa.
Willie's mother (alfred's daughter) was Annie Philanda Robins who married William Smith and migrated to South Africa.
