Obituary supplied by Sue Silver, 3 February 2014:
"Died.
Mr. John H. Robertson, an old resident of Placerville, Cal., died in Sacramento on last Saturday, June 6, 1891. He was stricken with paralysis about two weeks before his death, and had remained in an unconscious state most of the time thereafter. His remains were brought to Placerville on Monday for interment in Union Cemetery. His widow, Mrs. E. Robertson, Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Knight, and Mr. John N. Blair, all of Sacramento, came up with the remains which were met at the depot by a large number of friends and followed to the place of interment. Funeral services were conducted at the grave by Rev. James Curry, Pastor of the Presbyterian Church of this city, and appropriate hymn was feelingly sung by Mrs. T. H. Ralston, Miss Nellie Congdon and Mr. C. E. Merrill. Mr. Robertson was 82 years old, was born in Scotland, and came to California in 1850 where he was followed in a few years by his family. He was married in 1836, to the widow who survives him, and they lived together for the unusually long time of 55 years. They resided in Placerville until about two years ago, when they went to Sacramento to live with their daughter, Mrs. John Blair. She and another daughter, formerly Mrs. M. E. Wilcox of this city, are the only surviving children. Mrs. Blair, with her husband and daughter Mabel, is now visiting in Scotland, all unconscious of the loss that has befallen her. Thus one by one the old pioneers are passing away, and soon their places will all be filled by a younger generation." (Mountain Democrat, 6/13/1891, Saturday)
