Obituary

NORTHFIELD

Eugene W. Robbins died recently at his home in Athens. For many years Mr. Robbins was in the mercantile business at Northfield Falls, and had many friends in this vicinity. In 1870 he had a shock of paralysis, which rendered his left side practically helpless, followed by a second shock eight years later, after which he was unable to talk until 1880, when a sudden fright restored his speech. He was a man much loved by those who knew him best, and of indomitable will and perseverance, performing more than an ordinary man's work during all the years of suffering.
