|Death: ||Dec. 23, 1937|
Mrs. N.E. Robinson died at the home of her son, J. M. Robinson, on East Forduce, Thursday afternoon, December 23, at 4 o'clock. She had come from Central Texas to spend the winter with her three children and their families. She was ill only a brief time before her death.
Mrs. Robinson was born near Bastrop, Texas, May 8, 1858. She was from one of the pioneer families of Bastrop County. Her father rendered conspicuous service in the cause of the Confederacy.
Sister Robinson was the mother of nine children, five sons and four daughters, eight of whom survive. These are: Mrs. L.J. Woolsey and W.A. Robinson, Austin Texas; H.L. Robinson, Dale, Texas; Mrs. B.Z. Meers, Scranton, Ark.; E.M. Robinson, Paige, Texas; Mrs. N.B. Tanner, Allie Robinson and J. H. Robinson, of Kingsville, Texas.
The body of the deceased was carried overland to High Grove Cemetery to be interred by the side of other loved ones who preceded her in death. The last rites were conducted by Rev. Cole of Dale, Texas, Friday afternoon, December 24. The pallbearers were Jeff and Leland Harris, Doc Bozarth, Elmer Powell, Marion Ingram and Frank Shackelford.
Sister Robinson was a consistent, devout Christian and a member of the High Grove Baptist Church, where she had lived and reared her family, and where all her children were converted and joined the church.
She was left with the responsibilities of her home and farm by the death of her husband nearly thirty years ago. That she suceeded nobly is evidenced by the chacter of the children she gave to the world. She being dead yet liveth in the realms of glory and in the lives of her children and grandchildren. May the God of all comfort console them by
a sense of His presence and by His sustaining grace.
