Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1845
Missouri, USA
Death: 1915
California, USA

Former slave, entrepreneaur and pioneer - He came to Julian in the company of Major Chase a former civil war officer bound to Albert Robinson by friendship and events of the war where the former slave saved his life. Chase began ranching in the area and employed Albert. Romance came calling in 1886 when he met and married Margaret Tull born and raised in nearby Temecula. The Tull family owned property in Julian and gave it to the couple as a wedding gift. The Robinsons opened their hotel on the site providing overnight rooms for miners. Soon Margaret opened a combination resturant and bakery. Her Sunday chicken dinners became a tradition. An illness in 1915 took Albert's life. His burial place is in dispute. One version places him in Haven of Rest Cemetery. Another version claims his death started a controversy. Margaret wanted him interred at Haven of Rest, however a "whites only" clause pervailed and it was decided that he be buried in an out of town cemetery. This was the final insult which caused his spirit to linger on at his old hotel causing mischief whenever possible. His widow continued to operate the facility and finally sold it in 1921 and she returned to her family in Temecula.
