Biographical Note: John McE Robinson (1833-1910) was a Presbyterian pastor and teacher in South Carolina and Texas. Robinson graduated from Columbia Theological Seminary in South Carolina in 1861, and afterwards served as a pastor until enlisting as a Confederate Army Chaplain in 1863. In 1866 Robinson married Mary J. Kelsoe, with whom he had six children. The family moved to Bartlett, Texas in 1874, where Robinson preached, taught, and tended to his farm. In 1899 Robinson and his wife moved to Belton, Texas to be with their sons, and remained there until Robinson’s death in 1910.

Scope and Contents: Two notebooks (circa 1860-1899) contain theological essays, accounts, and general notations made by John McE Robinson. The first notebook contains primarily theological essays. The second notebook contains various entries including essays, arithmetic, accounts, and notations. Several of the pages of accounts near the end of the volume are in the name J.D. Robinson, and therefore may reflect the finances of Robinson’s son John D. Robinson.
