Benjamin J. Robinson of Williamstown, for many years a resident of Barre, passed away at the City hospital yesterday in his 81st year. Death was due to paralysis of the digestive organs, the patient having been removed to the hospital last Sunday after a short illness at home. Mr. Robinson is survived by his wife and two sons, George Robinson of Montpelier, and Arthur Robinson of this city, a rural delivery carrier. There are also several grandchildren, nephews, and nieces, the latter living in Stowe.
The deceased was born in Jericho, March 31, 1837. As a young man he enlisted in F. Company of the 13th Vermont regiment, and served creditably in the Civil War. He was under arms three years, and took part in the battle of Gettysburg. He was a member of Wells Post, G.A.R. Post in Williamstown. Mr. Robinson came to Barre in 1869 and made his home here until he removed to Williamstown a few years ago.
The funeral will be held Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the pastor, Rev. B. O. Lipsky officiating. Interment is to be made in Elmwood Cemetery.
