D.O. Robinson, who passed away at Bridgewater Corners Jan. 23d, was a man universally respected in our community, where he had lived for many years. Although his education was somewhat limited, being in his boyhood isolated from the advantages of the present day, he was a man of sound judgement to a degree that in all affairs of town finances his opinion was accepted by many of his more educated colleagues. No one as far as I ever knew who went to Orlan, as he was familiarly called, for a neighborly kindness ever went away without its being granted. And in the affairs of the town of which he held many responsible offices, he was kind and obliging - might with him was right. It could not truthfully be said of him - "my interest first, the town's second." And in these times of self-emolument, it is a great loss to the community. The write of this brief sketch has known Mr. Robinson from infancy and can truthfully say that in all his associations he proved himself not only a friend in need but a friend indeed.

D. O. Robinson
Daniel Orlando Robinson, one of Bridgewater's most respected citizens, died January 23, aged 64 years. He had been in poor health for several years. He was a successful businessman and had a large acquaintance. From 1886-1895 he served his town as first selectman, his good judgment and business ability being recognized by all. He was a veteran of the Civil war and a member of the Masonic lodge of Woodstock. In politics, he was a Democrat and was several times the candidate of that party for town representative. In 1890, although in a strong Republican town, he lacked only two votes of being elected.
