Harriett Raymond, daughter of John and Lousia Raymond, was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, December 12, 1837 and died at her home in Whitewater, October 19th, 1918.

When six years old she came to America with her parents and settled in Illinois. She was married to James O. Robinson, July 17, 1854 in Chicago.  In the fall of 1871 they came to Butler County and settled on a farm in Milton township, where they lived until after the death of Mr. Robinson Dec. 17, 1886.

For several years after the death of the husband and father, Mrs. Robinson stayed on the farm and with the help of the children managed the work.

In 1906 she left the farm and moved to Brainerd where she lived until 1909, when she moved to Whitewater, where she spent the rest of her life. 

She leaves two sons, Robert of Whitewater, James C. of Tomball, Texas, and three daughters, Lucinda of Whitewater, Mrs. Elizabet Balter of Brainerd and Mrs. Martha Smith of Wichita; also 28 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends to mourn her departure.

Two daughters, Mrs. Emily Miller and Mrs, Jennie Johnson had passed from this before the call came for mother. 

Mrs. Robinson was a kind friend and good neighbor, one who was always willing to sacrifice to help others. 
She lived a humble devoted Christian life, united with the Christian Church at Potwin, November 10, 1905, and died trusting in Christ and knowing that He was waiting to receive her.
