      William ROBBINS, 85, the last of a family of 11 children and the father of Sardis [ROBBINS] and Bert ROBBINS, completed a long life Saturday afternoon at five o'clock, when he died of a combination of paralysis and old age, in his apartment south of the public square.

      Mr. Robbins, during his life, was but little troubled with sickness until in recent years. The illness that resulted fatally was of short duration, altho he had been confined to his rooms for several weeks. The widow and the two sons are the only surviving near relatives.

      Deceased came of a pioneer Indiana family, having been born to Jacob and Mary ROBBINS in Jennings county, Indiana, Jan 21, 1831. His parents and his 10 brothers and sisters had all passed away before him, among them being Joe ROBBINS, father of the late G. B. W. ROBBINS, who lived near the city 20 years ago. The family of the deceased moved several times, the home being on lake Maxinkuckee for years, and in F ulton and Marshall counties during the war time. In 1881 he moved with his family to Fulton county, where he since resided. He was a member of the Ebenezer Baptist church.
