Biographical notes: Charles H. Robinson (1829-1915), a native of Nantucket, erected more structures than any contemporary island builder. Off-island, he fulfilled numerous contracts in vacationers’ “cottage cities” at Oak Bluffs and Falmouth Heights. Nantucket vital records reveal that Charles H. Robinson married Susan H. Chase in 1851, and their two children, William M. and Emily B., were born a few years later. In 1904 Charles, a septuagenarian widower, married Lydia F. Folger, the widow of Edward Butler. At the time of Robinson’s death on December 20, 1915, his living kin were his daughter Emily, a brother Benjamin, and a married sister Mrs. Louise Baker, all residents of Nantucket.
