Former Morrison Man Killed In Accident
Will F. Robinson Meets Sudden Death at Meadsville, Pa.
The funeral of Will F. Robinson, of Buffalo, N.Y., brother of Chas. Robinson and Mrs. H. W. Avery of Reinbeck, who was killed in an auto accident near Meadsville, Pa., on January 7th, was held from the Methodist church Tuesday at 2:30. The Masons conducted the funeral. Those from a distance were a niece, Mrs. I. E. Nerwig of Sioux City and A. L. Siemon, brother of Mrs. Will Robinson, of Chicago.
Wm. F. Robinson was born August 11, 1865, in Scott county, Iowa. His early years were spent on the farm in Grundy county, north of Morrison.
He left home when he was quite young and lived in St. Louis for 17 years, finally locating in Buffalo, N.Y., where for the past 15 years he had been traveling advertising agent for Doctor Pierce of that city.
The end of his career came as a result of an auto accident which occurred on January 7th and was the cause of his death four days later.
There remain to mourn his loss his wife, of Buffalo; a sister, Mrs. H. W. Avery and a brother, Chas. L. Robinson, both of Reinbeck; and a sister, Mrs. H. L. Judd, of Marshall, Wash. He had many friends and he was always friendly, honest and upright in all of his transactions. This fact has been borne out by expressions of regard and esteem from the hearts of all who knew him.
