Death: Aug. 6, 1876

William Shelburn Robison, s/o James and Elizabeth (Kissinger) Robison, was married to Arabella (Wagner) Robison of Lebanon, PA. They were the parents of 3 children, William Shelburn, Frederick and Mary Elizabeth Robison. Born and raised in Juniata Co., William enlisted as a Sergeant in Co. H 213th PA Volunteers, on Feb. 27, 1865, and served in the Civil War until his regiment was mustered out of service on June 5, 1865. After the war he went to Columbia, PA, and secured employment as an engineman (engineer) with the PA Railroad. When the children were still quite young, he became afflicted with locomotor ataxia which incapcitated him and led to the separation of himself and his wife, she taking the girl and he, William, the remaining boy. He spent the last 3 or 4 years of his life at the home of his sister, Mrs. Martha Robison Reynolds. He is buried with his parents in this cemetery.
