Sir Richard Owen, one of the world’s foremost specialists in comparative anatomy, recently died at his residence near London, Eng.  He was not prominent among the promoters of the evolutionary theory of life, but his researches helped greatly to advance that theory, and he not only gave it practical grounds, but his arguments directly supported it.  He was born at Lancaster, July 20(or 26), 1804, and was thus nearly halfway on his 89th year at his death.  (Tuesday, January 4, 1893, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Miss Henrietta W. Todd
Yesterday afternoon a dispatch was received here announcing the death of Miss Henrietta W. Todd at her home in Brooklyn, NY, at 1:30 o’clock p. m.  Miss Todd was taken suddenly with pneumonia, and on Monday her sister, Mrs. Charles G. Osgood, was telegraphed for.  Mrs. Osgood and her daughter Mary started from here the same afternoon and arrived in Brooklyn a few hours before Miss Todd’s death.  Miss Todd was well known here, where she resided for a number of years.  She was a woman of great intelligence and beauty of character.  Her death will be sincerely mourned by a large circle of friends.  The remains will be brought here for interment.  (Tuesday, January 11, 1893, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. John L. Robinson
A few minutes after 3 o’clock this morning the spirit of Mr. John L. Robinson passed from its mortal habitation to the unseen world.  His death was peaceful, the sands of life gradually running out, and those near him hardly knew the moment when he ceased to breath.  Mr. Robinson had enjoyed remarkably good health for a man of his years up to last April, when he was attacked by gangrene in one of the toes on his right foot.  The trouble increased, and in September it was deemed necessary by his physician to amputate the toe.  The operation did not stop the progress of the disease, and Mr. Robinson steadily failed.  He was able to ride to the bank almost every day until Christmas week, when he was obliged to give up and remain in his bed.  He grew weaker quite rapidly, and his faculties gradually failed until the cord of life was loosed.  The funeral is to be held at 2 o’clock Friday afternoon at the family residence on Main street.  John L. Robinson was born at Hartwick, Otsego county, NY, January 6, 1813.  He attended the district school until he was 14 years of age, when he engaged as clerk in a general store at Otsego.  He remained there for about six years.  He then engaged in business for himself as a merchant at Ninevah, Broome county, NY.  After about a year’s experience, there he came to this borough in February, 1834, he being then just past 21 years of age, and purchased the general store of Mr. Samuel Dickinson, which stood on the corner where the old Bank-building is now located, just above the county offices.  The next year his brother Chester came here also, and the firm of C. & J. L. Robinson was formed, and for over half a century these two brothers continued a prosperous career.  Chester was a good manager outside the store, and he looked after the extensive lumbering operations of the firm, while John L. conducted the store and kept the books. Messrs. C. & J. L. Robinson cleared off all the pine timber on the lands now owned by the Fall Brook Coal Company in this county, and at Round Island and other points along the Pine creek the firm put many million feet of pine logs into the stream, and at the old West Branch mill they manufactured large quantities of lumber and rafted it to market.  Employing many jobbers, they were able to do a large business in furnishing supplies from the store to the numerous lumber camps.  About 1860(or 1850), the Robinsons practically retired from the lumbering business, the pine timber having been cleared off their lands, and they disposed of large tracts to the coal companies and the hemlock lumbermen.  In 1863 they closed out their store, and in 1864 Mr. John L. Robinson was instrumental in establishing the First National Bank, of which he and Chester took about 9/10 of the stock.  He was the Bank’s first Cashier, and for many years he has been President of the institution, which is known as one of the most solid banks in all this region.  His wise and conservative management gave the Bank its reputation.  We believe the only public office Mr. Robinson ever held was that of County Treasurer, which he filled most satisfactorily to the people in 1844-5.  In September, 1832, Mr. Robinson married Miss Azubah Bowen, of Hartwick, NY.  They had seven children, two of whom are now living--Jesse M., who is Cashier of the First National Bank, and Mrs. Azubah Smith, widow of G. D. Smith.  Mrs. Robinson died in June, 1888, and since that time Mrs. Smith has kept the home for her father and faithfully ministered to him during his decline.  Mr. Robinson has been a vestryman of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church for over half a century, and for a number of years he has been one of the wardens, the other being his venerable and close friend Mr. William Bache.  John L. Robinson was a remarkable man in many respects.  He was untiring in his attention to business, not from the mere desire to make money, for he had acquired a competency years ago, but because he loved the work.  Even after he was physically unable to attend to business he rode down to the bank almost every pleasant day, to be where he could see familiar faces and exchange a genial greeting with friends and acquaintances.  It seemed to be his greatest sorrow to give up his daily routine of business habits.  His business career is an unspotted page.  His good judgment, his integrity and his genial manner made him respected by all who knew him.  He was remarkably philosophical about all the affairs of life and never allowed vexations to wear upon him.  It seems to us that Mr. Robinson was the most even-tempered man we never knew.  We never heard of his uttering an angry word or making an insulting remark to any man.  During his recent sickness his great patience under his suffering was another marked characteristic.  He was evidently a man of deep and sincere religious feeling and he was always faithful in his attendance at the public services at St. Paul’s church.  The members of the congregation were deeply affected by his appearance amongst them at th morning service on Christmas day, when painfully and with the help of crutches he slowly passed to the chancel to partake for the last time of the Holy Communion.  He was a plain, unpretentious man, a good citizen, a diligent and successful worker and a loyal, trusting member of the Church to which many years ago he vowed allegiance.  (Tuesday, January 11, 1893, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Catherine C. Jackson
Mrs. Catherine C. Jackson, wife of Henry Jackson, of Charleston, died on the 27th ultimo at the age of 48 years.  She was born in Bradford county, and she married Mr. Jackson 19 years ago.  Her husband and three daughters survive her.  Mrs. Jackson was a member of St. Peter’s Church in this borough.  (Tuesday, January 11, 1893, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Mary Lindsley

Female Horton
Mr. and Mrs. Louis G. Horton, of Blossburg, mourn the death of their infant daughter, who died of pneumonia last Sunday.  (Tuesday, January 11, 1893, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Harry Holcomb
Harry Holcomb, son of George O. Holcomb, of Troy, Pa., and grandson of the late Eleazer Pomeroy, died of diphtheria in New York on Christmas night.  The lad and his parents had been in New York about a week.  (Tuesday, January 11, 1893, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. James King
Mr. James King, of Canisteo, NY, was out hunting a few days ago, being accompanied by his valuable dog.  King was returning home, walking on the railroad track, and in trying to save the dog from being struck by a train, he was himself struck and instantly killed.  The dog suffered a like fate.  Mr. King was 33 years of age.  He leaves a widow and three children.  (Tuesday, January 11, 1893, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Jane A. Keeney
At Keeneyville, Pa., January 1, 1893, Mrs. Jane A. Keeney, wife of George D. Keeney, Esq.  Mrs. Keeney was the daughter of Deacon Drew and was born March 2, 1830.  She married George D. Keeney, August 27, 1848.  She was the mother of nine children, three of whom have preceded her to the spirit world.  Mrs. Keeney exhibited in her life excellencies of character not often seen in this world.  She was a loving daughter, a faithful wife, the best of mothers, a kind neighbor, and an unfailing friend.  She was a devoted Christian, and was baptized in 1844 when only 14 years of age.  The last letter she wrote was to the Tioga Baptist Church, of which she said she “had been a member for 48 years.”  During her long sickness she exhorted all who came to see her, to seek that preparation that is needful for death.  And unbelievers and skeptics have gone from her room weeping from the effects of her earnest words.  One who knew her best said, “She never said an unkind word of any one.”  Influenced by her example and in answer to her prayers, her children became Christians.  A little time before her death she said she “had been received and the bitterness of death was past.”  On Tuesday, January 3d, amid the tears of her friends, after a sermon by her former pastor, G. P. Watrous, and appropriate singing by the Tioga choir, she was laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery by the side of her mother and her children.  G. P.

Niles summoned a jury, and, assisted by Dr. John E. Bacon, Dr. Niles made a post-mortem examination.  It was found that death had been caused by poison, and the jury rendered a verdict to that effect and that they believed that the poison had been administered by her own hand.  The jury expressly exonerated Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Starkweather.  Mrs. Starkweather’s maiden name was Sarah Mickle.  The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon.  (Tuesday, January 18, 1893, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
