John Robertson
Birth: Oct. 26, 1810
Grafton County
New Hampshire, USA
Death: Sep. 8, 1877
Lake Zurich
Lake County
Illinois, USA

Robertson, John, was born in New Hampshire, Oct. 20, 1810; he married Charlotte Sutherland of Vermont in Dec 1841; she was born Dec 22, 1824 and died March 3, 1875; they had 10 children. Mr R came into Illinois as many young men did, poor but ambitious to make a home on these beautiful prairies, and settled on land near Deer Grove, and by industry, economy and indomitable energy he had in a few years a farm of 1,000 acres. He lived on it for twenty years, then moved on to a beautiful farm of 700 acres, situated on the banks of Lake Zurich, where he built a splendid mansion and commodious barns. He was a very successful farmer, and saved a large fortune and still retaining his old home in Deer Grove; he always had the confidence of his neighbors, and from them received many offices of trust and responsibility, always discharging the duties satisfactorily. On the 8th day of September, while in the discharge of his duties as Road Commissioner in opening a road, a dissatisfied neighbor shot him with his revolver, the ball taking effect in the face and he died in four hours.
