ROBBINS, EARLE (?–?). Earle Robbins was with Daniel Shipman and members of the William Gates and Abner Kuykendall families in an Indian campaign in the spring of 1824. As one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, he received title to a labor of land on the west bank of the Brazos River in what is now eastern Austin County, four miles north of old San Felipe de Austin, on July 19, 1824.
