The O B Robershaw Family

O B Robershaw & Lois Estelle Love were married Sept 26, 1926 in Wetumpka. AL. After they were married Dad went to work in the Cherokee Basin cutting wood. They honeymooned in a  one room trailer. Dad worked in cotton mills,steel mills and during the war worked in a shell plant [making bullets]. However his first love was working in a stone quarry and after the war not only quarried and sold the stone but was installing it as well. It became apparent in the late fifties, that he could make more money installing, so he gave up the stone quarry. The 1930 Census 1940 Census

Mom was the glue that held the Family together,and also the motivator! She pushed us children to attend school and she pushed Dad to work and succeed. She also was the driving force that moved the Family to CA. She was the spiritual leader of the Family as well! Dad loved baseball, football, hunting, fishing, golf, and all other sports, but most of all he loved baseball! Dad only attended school thru the 4th grade, he dropped out to go to work. But he was able to teach himself what ever he endeavored to do. And I have found everything he told me about the Family to be true!!
