Bedford Times-Republican, Thursday, June 16, 1910, [p. 1]
Mrs. S. E. Robinson, Jr.
Lenox—Mrs. S. E. Robinson, Jr., died here Monday afternoon, June 13, two hours after her arrival from New Mexico, accompanied by the family, in response to her wish to reach Iowa before she died. The husband, five of the six children, and Mrs. Dan Hayes, sister of Mrs. Robinson, accompanied her back. It was a tiresome trip attended by some difficulties. She was taken to the home of Mrs. Hayes two miles east of Lenox, where the few short hours were passed before death came.
Agnes Bannon was born December 9, 1868, in Scott County, Iowa. She was married to S. E. Robinson November 17, 1886. To this union were born eight children, five daughters and three sons, two of the daughters having died in early childhood. Nearly two years go the mother’s health began to fail so gradually that it was scarcely thought of as a malady until a severe hemorrhage of the lungs came on suddenly, almost terminating her life. As soon as she had acquired sufficient strength her husband took her to Roswell, N. M., where she gained quite a degree of health, but was so homesick and the Iowa March weather was so perfect it seemed advisable to bring her home. But the chilly April weather proved too much and she was again taken to Roswell and the family decided to make their home there thinking her life would be spared in the south, but she never regained her health and grew weaker, but with an undying yearning for home in Iowa. So the property was sold and the family came as far as El Reno for a rest and gradual change and visit with the Robinson family there, intending to come to Lenox and rent a house and live here. She was never able to make the trip safely, but she wanted to come home to die, so the attempt was made. They arrived in Lenox at 1:35 Monday and she died two hours later. The funeral services will be conducted Thursday at St. Patrick’s church of which she has long been a devout and consistent member. Six members of the R. N. of A. will act as pallbearers. The remains will be interred in the family lot in Fairview Catholic cemetery.
