Summary

Juan G. Robbins was born on a rancho before California was a state, participated from California for the Union in the Civil War, left California to mine in Idaho, his life mirroring what took place for many native sons who were in California before statehood, the gold rush and all that took place during that period. His is a fascinating history, to the degree that we have put it together!

This photo of his family was taken close to one year after the death of Juan G. Robbins. This might have represented the end of a formal year of mourning. A couple of years later, Anna Alice Leigh Robbins re-married, to Henry Ellison. That marriage ended in divorce. The first born child, a son, of Juan and Anna died at age nine months.

J.G. Robbins, Patent, April 28, 1885 PICK
This is a two page patent application for a unique pick with an interchangeable head. Its design would allow one sturdy handle and a variety of pick types and sizes to be used. It also makes it very easy and safer to take the pick head off the handle when pulling the miners bucket up out of the mine.

Robbins, John J. This is probably NOT our Juan G. (or Juan Jose, John J. as aka) but there is a John J. who joined in California and then deserted. When I find that record I will add it here. I did not want to lose this record until certain it is not the correct Robbins.
