In the first paragraph you state: His sister Mary Robinson married John Alston Dudley on Feb. 1, 1871, however this is incorrect. As you note in your subsequent article on John Alston Dudley, ( http://alabamapioneers.com/biography-john-alston-dudley-revolutionary-war-soldier/#sthash.DCRC62qA.dpbs ) one of John and Mary’s children was Martha Robinson Dudley (my 3x gr’grandmother) who married James Napier Torrence; Martha and James had a son, John Earl Torrence, b. 14 Jan 1853 in Lowndes Co, AL. Therefore, if John Earl Torrence was b. 1853 it’s not possible for Mary Robinson and John Alston Dudley to have married in 1871.
Also, as a matter of writing style, it would be helpful to the novice genealogist if you included surnames when outlining lineage. For example, in this article above, you state that Tod Robinson was the “grandson of James Terry (b. Nov. 19, 1746, d.) and Nancy Ann Roberts (b. Feb. 13, 1756) and the great-grandson of (William Terry and Nancy Raiford) and (William Roberts, Sr..and Mourning Raiford Roberts).” What is not clear is which grandparents James Terry and Nancy Ann Roberts are because no surname is included. Those of us who have been doing this for a while can figure it out, but beginners would be no more knowledgeable after reading this than they were before they started. Just something to keep in mind 🙂
Thank you for your correction and helpful comments.
