Robinson at Mt. Idaho January 3, 1873. Statira E., wife of J.H. Robinson aged 36 years.
Statira E., the beloved wife of J.H. Robinson died at Mt. Idaho, Nezperce County, I.T. on the morning of January 3, 1873. She had not been in her usual health for some time past, but her death was sudden and unexpected and occasioned a feeling of sadness among the large circle of her friends.
She was born in Virginia A.D. 1837, and was the eldest daughter of Dr. D. Gibbon of quaker City, Ohio. Statira E. Robinson was educated at Steubenville Seminary Ohio. Early in life she united herself with the Methodist Ep;iscopal Chursh and until her death was a faithful and consistent Christian. She arrived in Idaho Territory early in 1863 and was amid all the discomforts and privations of a frontier life “ever the same faithful and true”. Hopeful, contented, happy and striving to do her best from the darkest days of adversity to the day of her death, when, surrounded by many things requisite for earthly prosperity, it pleased God to teke her into His keeping mourned by her devoted husband and 5 young children who will miss a mothers love and tender care. May the great Father have them in his holy keeping.
