PROBABLY FATAL Injuries Are Sustained by Mrs. Henry E. Robinson at Bay View - Wednesday morning Mrs. Henry E. Robinson, accompanied by her daughters, Mrs. Frank C. Vaughan and Mrs. Harry Gennett, and the latter's husband, left Richmond for Petoskey. they arrived there Wednesday night and Friday afternoon they borded a train at Petoskey and started to Bay View. It is only a few miles between these two places and dummy engines haul the trains between them. Upon arriving at Bay view the party got off the train and Mrs. Robinson got in front of another train and sustained what are thought to be fatal injuries. Both lower limbs wre broken, one arm broken, and her skill (sic) fractured.

A message was immediately sent to Mr. Robinson here and he with his two sons, Platt and Ray, secured a special train and left immediately for Bay View The word at that time was that the attending physician thought Mrs. Robinson could not live through the night...Mrs. Robinson died at 9:30 o'clock this morning. The special train carring her husband and sons arrived here at 3 o'clock this morning, six and one half hours beore her death. The run of 435 miles was made in ten hours...The deceased was a member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church and for years has been one of the best known women of Richmond. Her maiden name was Brown..."
