Slide show of photos of Franklin County Sheriffs.  We would love to add to this if anyone has photos that we could scan.

Who are these people?  We think that he may be an early Franklin County Sheriff.  Some think it may be Charles L. Robbins; others aren’t so sure. See first photo in the slide show for comparison. If you can positively identify this couple for us, please contact us.
Robbins maybe
