The Spirit of the Age, (Woodstock, Vt.), February 2, 1901"

"D.O. Robinson, who passed away at Bridgewater Corners Jan. 23d, was a man universally respected in our community, where he had lived for many years. Although his education was somewhat limited, being in his boyhood isolated from the advantages of the present day, he was a man of sound judgement to a degree that in all affairs of town finances his opinion was accepted by many of his more educated colleagues. No one as far as I ever knew who went to Orlan, as he was familiarly called, for a neighborly kindness, ever went away without its being granted. And in the affairs of the town of which he held many responsible offices, he was kind and obliging - might with him was right. It could not truthfully be said of him - "my interest first, the town's second." And in these times of self emolument it is a great loss to the community. The write of this brief sketch has known Mr. Robinson from infancy and can truthfully say that in all his associations he proved himself not only a friend in need but a friend indeed."

An obituary was also published in the St. Albans Daily Messenger (St. Albans, Vermont) on February 4, 1901.
