Thomas Bryan Robinson was born in Marshall, Salina County, Mo., Aug. 12, 1887 and passed away at his home nine miles north of Coldwater, Kans., 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 later 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 here he moved to the farm north of Coldwater, which has been the family home for the past __ (appears to be 21) years.
On November 20, 1912, he was united in marriage with Miss Mable Oller. To this union four children were born - Hubert of Dallas, Texas, Don of Wichita, Kans., 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, beside 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.
William & Elidah (Heaton) Oller, parents of Mable Oller.
