10 Oct 1946 Phil Was born on 10 Oct 1946 at Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie, Delaware County, Indiana.  He was the second son of Living Robbins ID0005 and Norma Louise Haas Robbins ID0006.  At the time of his birth the family was living at 1108 W 16th St, in Muncie, Delaware County, Indiana.  S2, S3, S21,
25 Nov 1946 Phil was listed on a Cradle Roll Certificate from Walnut St Baptist Church, in Muncie, Delaware County, Indiana - S4,
1947-1948 Phil - Residence:  The family next moved to the Centennial House in about 1947 and stayed there until 1948.  S7,

This little farm consisted of 5 acres and had a detached garage building. Phil's father was an auto mechanic and did some work in the garage. He also raised some cows there as well. Phil disappeared one day and his mother became frantic because by then Centennial Road was being used as a highway so the traffic was quite heavy. She searched and searched for him and finally found him across the road at a neighbor's house - Phil had wanted to play with the little neighbor kid. This house was located on East Centennial in Muncie and the family moved there about 1948.

1948-1952 Phil Residence
In 1948 the family once again moved, this time to the North of Eaton Farm

This farm was a step up for the family. It consisted of 26 acres and had a small house, a nice barn and a 2-holer outhouse. An apple orchard occupied the southeast corner of the property. This allowed Phil's dad to have more cattle and gather more farm equipment.

Today, this farm has turned into a "Gentleman's farm" A huge brick house was constructed in the center of the property and a 3-acre pond was built. The barn and little house remain, but are not in good repair. The little house appears to be a rental at this time (Dec 2007).

The story told to us when we lived there was that the little house had been the former "Poore School" which had originally been located at the NW corner of the road junction just east of the house.

The daughter of the family was born while living at this house.

While living here Phil and brother Walt, Jr. received a Lionel Train Set for Christmas - I27, I28, I29,

21 Jan 1949 Patricia Born, Livingston, Overton County, Tennessee - S16,
1952-1958 Phil Residence
In 1952 the family once again moved to a larger farm, the 110-acre Farm

This was a BIG step up when the family moved here. This farm consisted of 110 acres and had the house and a workshop, and a fenced area that contained a large wooden chicken coop and a domed metal grain storage bin on the south side of the road.

On the north side of the road (which was gravel) sat a large barn, a hog house, and a corn crib plus another outbuilding.

There was also a large woods on the northwest corner of the farm. This farm adjoined the farm of Phil's grandfather Oscar Clifton Robbins ID0014. His uncles, Milton Robbins ID0043 and Paul Jarrell ID0053 and their families, also had farms that adjoined the farm of Oscar.

This was the farm at which all the kids had horses - Phil's horse was named "Trigger" after the horse of Roy Rogers. 

Phil's father became very ill with Yellow Jaundice and was unable to continue farming. The farm was sold and a large auction was held to sell all the farm equipment, cattle and all other farm related items.

1953-1958 Phil Education - Eaton Schools, Eaton, Delaware County, Indiana - I2, S5,
25 Dec 1955 Phil and his brother received an Erector Set this year for Christmas - This was a really nice gift - The father seemed to take more interest in it than did the boys.  S6,
1958 - 1962 Phil Education
Daleville School, Daleville, Delaware County, Indiana - I2,
1958-1960 Phil Residence - Stoney Haven Motel
This motel had 6 rental units plus the house where the family lived.  The children attended Daleville Schools and it was a big adjustment, especially for the boys.
The motel was a big burden on the parents and they decided to sell and buy a house.
1960-1966 Phil Residence - North of Daleville House
This house was out in the country on a 1/2 acre lot. It was a brick ranch house with a 2 car garage. This was a brand new house, the first one for the family, and had been built by a local contractor named George Harlan.  In 1966 the parents decided to move and have a new house built. The oldest son, his wife and daughter purchased this house and moved in around August 1966.

This house is located south of Yorktown, Delaware County, Indiana on County Road 400S. It is also a 3-bedroom brick ranch with a 2 car garage. It was styled a little different although the interior floor plan was much the same as the North of Daleville House. The family, at this time consisted of the parents, Phil and his sister. The children continued to attend Daleville Schools. Phil had another horse named "Trixie" I3, while he lived at this house.  The mother, Norma, lived here until her death at the home in 2004.

S7 Interview with Walter Clifton Robbins , by Walter Clifton Robbins, Jr, 22 Sept 2005

Extract: Lived here about a year. Walter Sr ID0005 put in a bathroom, a septic tank and a well. Put the water pump under the sink in the house. It consisted of the pump with a separate motor connected with a belt. Phil ID0007 got his little finger caught in the belt and he lost a portion of the end of that finger. Walter Sr ran the well pipe from the well into the house to the pump. He had dug down to the well that was already there and Milton ID0043 came out and cut the pipe off and Walter Sr put a cap on it and ran the pipe to the house. We lived in this house a little over a year. The county was talking about running a sewer line that would cost everyone along the road $1500. That was one reason for the move. The property had a barn. Walter Sr did auto repair in the barn. There was 5 acres and we had a few cows.
