Wife of Thomas D. Robertson

Daily Register (Rockford, IL), pg. 3, Saturday, May 11, 1878

Mrs. Elizabeth A. Robertson -- the subject of this sketch, who died at Atlanta, GA., on Monday, May 6, was born at Hadley, Saratoga Co., N. Y., October 20, 1812; and at the time of her death was in her sixty-sixth year. She was the daughter of Hon. John W. Taylor, member of Congress from Saratoga district, N. Y., from 1813 to 1833. He was speaker of the House during the second session of the Sixteenth Congress in 1820-1, and was a man of marked ability and sterling quality.

The deceased moved to Rockford in 1840, and for some time thereafter resided in the family of her brother, col. J. W. Taylor. She became the wife of Thomas D. Robertson, Esq., the well known banker, the marriage taking place on May 19, 1843.

She was a member of Emmanuel Eppiscopal Church and or many years she was a great sufferer from complication of disorders, but bore all with fortitude and Christian resignation, rearing a family of several children, and discharging the duties of the mother of the household amid it all with constancy and devotion.

For three years Mr. and Mrs. Robertson have resided at the South during the winter months. There was nothing unusually alarming in Mrs. Robertson's state of health of late, and her sudden death at Atlanta was utterly unexpected. The arrival of the remains in this city, and the funeral services have been spoken of in these columns. Mrs. Robertson leaves a wide circle of friends and acquaintances in this city and in other portions of the country, who will long remember her worth as a relative, friend and excellent Christian lady.
