Of Death Of
Word has been received here of the death of William T. Robinson, on Saturday, April 12 at his home in La Plata, Missouri. He was a brother of Miss Mamie S. Robinson, 305 North Braddock Street, this city, who survives.
Mr. Robinson was born in Iowa, April 8, 1869 and came to Virginia as a young child with his father, Joseph Robinson, who was a member of the Robinson family of Frederick county, his mother having died in Iowa. He grew to manhood here and went to Missouri in 1889, going into the merchantile business with the late C. A. Robinson of Kirksville. He later operated a store of his own in La Plata, for twenty years. His wife, the former Miss Ethel Campbell of Callao, Missouri, passed away in 1917.
A man of unusual affability and popularity with everyone who knew him, he was elected state senator from the 9th district of Missouri in 1920. He was later post-master at La Plata for twelve years and only two years ago was a member of the Constitutional Convention at Jefferson City.
Funeral services were held in La Plata last Monday and interment was made there. Miss Mamie Robinson, his only immediate surviving relative and Clarence J. Robinson, of this city attended the service.
