Obituary

BRANDON

Capt. William B. Robinson, who went with his family a few weeks since to Saratoga lake in search of health, was taken worse there some two weeks ago and was taken to the home of his brother at Saratoga Springs, where he grew worse and died there Friday, August 18,of disease of the brain. His remains were brought to Brandon last Saturday. He was buried here Sunday afternoon, Rev. Dr. W. Smart officiating at the funeral, which was held at his late residence. He leaves a wife and three children. Capt. Robinson was a man much respected wherever he was known.
