My daddy, Richard Aaron Robbins, told me he would never forget the first time he saw my mother, Iva Mildred Conley. She was standing in a field of cotton and he remembered her big, brown eyes looking at him from under her sun bonnet as he went by. I don't know how old they were. It seems my blog entries often raise more questions, but that's one of the things I like about writing in my genealogy blogs.
I know my mother's family lived in Lampasas County before moving to San Saba County, Texas and Daddy was born in San Saba County. He was a year older than Mother, but Cherokee, Texas was a small place, so they knew each other all through school. I wish I knew when they started dating. I know after his graduation from high school in May 1928, Daddy went to Kerrville to work. I also know Mother went to Draughan's Business College and did secretarial work at a granite company after she graduated in May 1929. They married April 19, 1930.
