A search of the Ontario birth registrations for Fred Robinson doesnt turn up any likely records... possibly the birth wasnt registered at that time... jca
A search of the 1881 census records turns up this one:
This one has an Albert, age 13 which nicely matches the 1911 census in Saskatchewan and a John ( born about 1874) which matches the 1916 census in Saskatchewan with brothers Albert and Fred. The daughter Leanora is interesting as well as Fred's second son was named Lenor which is similiar. The 1878, 24th May birth record shows her as born Lenora in Perth County, very nice fit...born to mother: Mary Ann Skean. What religion I wonder?
Youngest daughter Annie also shows up on the Ontario birth records at ancestry.com as being born 1880, 24th July. Ruth shows up as born 29 Dec 1875. mother Mary Ann Skene, father Albert Robinson. The 1901 census has father Albert as a book merchant in Belleville, Ontario, age 46 with wife and daughters Elenora and Annie. but where is Fred?
