Robbin's and Tillet's Houses

As there is no evidence of a G.A. Robbins ever having lived in Charlotte, this may have been a typo for Oscar A. Robbins who resided with his wife Olivia at 201 South Tryon Street prior to moving to the Dilworth neighborhood. Robbins co-owned a cotton mill machinery factory with James L. Sexton at 201 South Tryon Street. The Charles Walter Tillett (1853-1954) house was located at 801 North Tryon Street. Tillett was a local attorney.
