Chapter 19 of "To Kill a Mockingbird" begins

Thomas Robinson reached around, ran his fingers under his left arm and lifted it....Atticus very quickly induced him to tell us:  Tom was twenty five years of age; he was married with three children; he had been in trouble with the law before; he once received thirty days for disorderly conduct.

Other than this mention of his progeny, there is no other reference to the children of Tom Robinson.
