Obituary

The community was saddened by the death of Major S. Robbins, which occurred last Friday. His age was about 63 years. Mr. Robbins was a consistent Christian and was a steward of the M.E. church. He had an honorable war record. He was a member of the 3rd regiment, Company E, Vt. Vols. In his first engagement, which was in the battle of the Wilderness, he was severely wounded and carried the bullet in his body until his death. His tentmate and comrade, O.M. Tillotson, was killed in this battle. Mr. Robbins had been a lifelong resident of this town and was loved and respected by all who knew him. He leaves a wife, five daughters, and a large circle of friends to mourn his loss.
