THE WESTERN STAR, 18 June 1943

Was One of Comanche County's Progressive Farmers

T. B. Robinson who had not been in robust health for several years due to a heart ailment, died from a heart attack without warning about 6 o'clock p.m. on Wednesday of last week. His tractor had just been
reconditioned and Tom walked to a tool box on the tractor to get a wrench and suddenly slumped down. Bob Wood, who was helping Mr. Robinson, ran to the house about 75 yards away to tell Mrs. Robinson and
daughter, Frances, and a doctor was called.

Mr. Robinson had been to town during the afternoon with his son, Don, and appeared to be in his usual health. Don, together with his roommate, Carl Lindsay at Wichita, also Lester Lenertz and David Cary of Coldwater had gone to Ashland Lake late in the afternoon to fish and were notified as soon as possible of Mr. Robinson's death.

Funeral services were held last Saturday afternoon in the Coldwater Methodist church at 3 o'clock and were in charge of the pastor, Rev. Major W. Parker, who brought a comforting message. A mixed quartet
composed of Bowman Hewett, Marvin Plank, Mrs. J. W. Brewer and Mrs. Ford Anderson, sang "Sometime We'll Understand," "There'll Be No Night There," and "When They Ring Those Golden Bells." Many beautiful flowers evidenced the high regard in which Mr. Robinson was held.

The active pall bearers were, Arthur Uhl, Guy Crowe, Francis Burkhall, Ephraim Robbins, Victor P. Burton, and Jack Jaquiss. The honorary pallbearers were Joe and Will Darroch, Dr. R. A. J. Shelley, Will Flowers, Theodore Baessler and Otha Landess. Burial was in Crown Hill cemetery.

The sympathy of the entire community is extended to the bereaved relatives in this, their time of sorrow.

Thomas Bryan Robinson was born in Marshall, Salina county, Missouri, August 12, 1887 and passed away at his home, nine miles north of Coldwater, Kansas, June 9, 1943 at the age of 55 years and 10 months. At the age of 17 he came to work at the home of Bart Newlin in Comanche county, two years after starting out on his own in the Antioch community where he resided for five years before moving to a farm south of Sitka, Kans. After four years' stay there he moved to the farm north of Coldwater which has been the family home for the past 21 years.

On November 20, 1912, he was united in marriage with Miss Mabel Oller. To this union four children were born - Hubert of Dallas, Texas, Don of Wichita, Kansas, Carl now of the United States Army and Frances of the home.

Mr. Robinson was a member of the Coldwater Methodist church, taking an active interest in its welfare and giving it loyal support. He was a farmer who loved his farm home, doing all he possibly could for the
welfare of his family and the betterment of the community. He enjoyed being a good neighbor and for this reason, he will be greatly missed in the community.

He leaves to mourn his death, besides the immediate family mentioned above, one grandson, Gary Don, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Hubert Robinson and many, many friends.

Mr. Robinson was the last child of his parents to die, so that all the family are now deceased.
