Eugene P. Robinson
The Vermont Journal, January 23, 1936
Military honors were paid in tribute to Eugene Parker Robinson, 89, who saw nearly three years' service in the Civil War and who was a charter member of William C. Tracy post, G.A.R., of Windsor, at the funeral services at the Rachel E. Harlow Methodist church this afternoon at 2 o'clock. Mr. Robinson died Monday night at the Claremont hospital where he had been under treatment for a few days.
He was born in Pittsfield, April 28, 1846, the son of Charles Proctor and Mary E. (Parker) Robinson. His family moved to Weathersfield and it was from this town that he enlisted at the age of 17. He joined Company H, Seventh Vermont Volunteers December 14, 1863, and the date of muster was January 2, 1864. From then he served until he was mustered out March 18, 1866. The war over, he returned to Weathersfield. He married Harriet A. Fitch at Cornish, N. H., May 12, 1869 and the couple continued to live in Weathersfield, later coming to Windsor.
Mr. Robinson was one of the oldest members of the Methodist church which he joined January 23, 1873. When the William C. Tracy post of G.A.R. formed June 13, 1883, he joined and served in the various post offices including commander.
He was the father of three sons and a daughter; Samuel Frank, who died in Windsor, February 14, 1935; Wilfred E. who has served as fire chief in Windsor for nearly 40 years; Martin Charles, and Mrs. Nellie May Swan. He is survived by nine grandchildren all of Windsor; Eldon, Locke, and Earl Robinson, Mrs. James Colburn, Kenneth Swan, Mrs. Elna Howe, Merton, Jr., Mercelene and Maefred Robinson. There are 10 great grandchildren. His wife died March 1, 1911.
Until about 15 years ago, Mr. Robinson conducted a trucking business in Windsor. He was a quiet, genial man and his fine character gave him a place of esteem with his towns people for about three generations.
At the time of the erection of the Methodist church he served on the board of trustees. Sons of Union Veterans, the Auxiliary and World War veterans attended the services this afternoon when Rev. I. A. Ranney officiated.
