Mrs. T.G. Robertson obituary - 1903

Died Mrs. Robertson -- Doubly Afflicted Household Suffers Great Loss

Mrs. T.G. Robertson, aged 49 years, died at the family residence in Dresden at 12:25 o'clock Saturday afternoon, after about two years sickness from organic heart trouble.

The Robinson family has been doubly afflicted during the past few weeks, there being three cases of diptheria in the family, besides the suffering wife and mother. The latter are now getting about and will be entirely well should no backset occur, the residence having been thoroughly fumigated Saturday evening.

The remains of Mrs. Robinson will be taken to her former home, Washington, D.C., for interment, arriving at that point Tuesday noon.

Mr. Robinson is the overseer of the finishing department of the Dresden Woolen mills, and has the sympathy of the entire community in his bereavement.
