Emma Griffith was the mother of Annie (Robinson) Dickinson. Emma was born on March 8, 1837, in Middlewich, Cheshire, England. She was the daughter of Thomas Griffith and (perhaps) Phoebe Kimberley. On her death certificate, shown below, her mother's name was given as "Martha Griffith". Additional research required.
She married George Robinson between 1851 and 1861, as she was counted on the census in 1861 with George and one child, Emily. Emma bore George seven known children. They were counted in Stretford, Lancashire, England, in 1871, and before the next census was taken, the family departed for America, living in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, where George died on April 19, 1899, and Emma died just seven months later, on the 16th of November, 1899. She was 62 years old. They both died from pneumonia.
If anyone has a photo of George Robinson, or any information about his family, please contact me! (Emma and George were my 3rd great-grandparents).
