Oswego Palladium (Oswego, NY), Thurs. July 15, 1875

Full Text

Yesterday's New York papers print a notice of the death of Nathan Robins, Sr. which occurred after a brief sickness, at Metuchin, N.J. Tuesday afternoon. These tidings have struck the acquaintances of the deceased in Oswego with profound sorrow. Mr. Robins was for many years a prominent and greatly respected resident of this city, where he was engaged in the ship chandlery trade- the firm being Robins & O'Leary, in the store where Mr. J. M. Barrow now does business. He was very active in politics, being a Democrat in political opinion, and was alive to every question of public interest. He was once of those men whose presence and influence are magnetic with kindness and good feeling, and his death seems like a personal affliction this old associates. We know of no better tribute to the worthiness of the dead than that they are remembered with affectionate kindness by their survivors beyond the circle of the family. Such a man was Nathan Robins. The death notice states that the funeral would occur at 2 p.m. today and the internment is Greenwood cemetery tomorrow morning.
