Obituary

Alfred B. Robinson, one of the oldest among the pioneers of Minnesota, and a soldier of three wars, the Indian war in Florida, Civil War, and Indian war in Minnesota - died at the Soldiers Home hospital Saturday evening about 5 o'clock, aged 86 years.

Mr. Robinson came to Minnesota as a soldier in the regular army nearly 60 years ago. After the expiration of his service he married and settled in St. Paul, which city continued to be his home until nine years ago, when he was admitted to membership in the Soldiers Home. Mr. Robinson also served two enlistments in Minnesota organizations -- eight months in Company A, of the Third, and three years in Company B of the Sixth.

Mr. Robinson is survived by a son and daughter, Thomas and Lydia Robinson, residents of Montrose, Wright County. The remains of Mr. Robinson will be buried in Montrose by his children.
