Calling Jim a "farmer" is significant in that it usually means the head of household owned or at least rented his farm.  In contrast, if he worked on someone else's farm, his occupation would normally be listed as "farm laborer."

4.  1890 Census:  the 1890 Census Population Schedules were destroyed.

5.  1900 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find, but my search was not exhaustive.  Gabriel is in Gourdin Twp., Georgetown Co., SC; Fraser is in the City of Georgetown, Georgetown Co., SC.  If Martha is living, she would presumably be married, so I wouldn't expect to find her.  Can't find Stephen, not with certainty.

6.  Shailagh Murray.  Thursday, 2 Oct 2008.  "A Family Tree Rooted in American Soil."  Washington Post (online at www.washingtonpost.com; extract by DGM). 
Family lore said to have been preserved by Carrie NELSON, daughter of Gabriel ROBINSON, who is now 80 years old.  Carrie names cousins Connie JONES (daughter of Thomas ROBINSON, s/o Gabriel's brother, Fraser ROBINSON) and Harolyn SIAU.  Carrie states that Gabriel and Fraser's mother died when they were young and that their father remarried.  Family was friends with white man, Frank NESMTH (n.b., we find Fraser living with NESMITH in the 1900 census, q.v.).
Carrie's lack of mention of Gabriel's siblings, Martha and Stephen, suggests the latter may have died young.
