I have been unable to locate David Jr. in 1860, and Jeremiah and John seem to disappear after 1860. I assume daughter Matilda died between 1850 and 1860. What happened to the three boys? Did Jeremiah and John perhaps serve in the Civil War and perish?
I did find a Jeremiah ROBINSON listed at the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System…

Is this our Jeremiah ROBINSON?
The 1840 census for Tippah Co., Mississippi has a David ROBINSON listed. It indicates that there were two older girls who may have married by 1850. Who were these daughters?
One final question … what is Julia’s surname, and when and where were David and Julia ROBINSON married?
