John Albert & May E. Robb

Trying to find information on my Great grandfather John "Albert Robb and May E. Johnson Robb's children. My great grandfather owned the Mesa Market (butcher shop) in Pueblo, Co around 1900. My grandmother, Gladys Emily Jane Robb, was born in Pueblo, Coloradoon April 29, 1905 on Polk Avenue. I have a copy of her birth registration. Apparently My great grandparents lost a number of children (I do not know if they were miscarriages or death was after their birth.) So, they adopted a boy who was about 10-12 years younger than Gladys. They named him Robert Lincoln Robb and according to his daughter his birth date was simply given to him to match a child they had lost (12-29-1915). His adoption was not discussed and even he did not know until he was applying for WWII medical clearance.
My great grandfather was born in Canada immigrated to Minnesota and was naturalized there and then moved to California. After he married May, they moved to Colorado then when they moved back to California after 1900.
