    Robinson, William Henry & Mercy Hodgson home - 177 "C" Street, Salt Lake City - years later
    RESIDENCE: Wm Henry Robinson Jr states he was born in the 9th ward between 4th & 5th South on 4th East, 25 Jan 1857....We moved to the 20th Ward about 1867 to 177 "C" Street. I think father paid about $100 for the lot and 2 room adobe house. Father added to the house as his family increased. The lot was used for orchard, grapes & garden - no lawn or flowers, so they could eat.
