About James B. Robinson


A man with a large physique.

He had been reared in Pittsburgh, PA by an uncle and attended school there.

Became a U. S. Citizen 07SEP1855 at Delhi, Delaware County, Iowa.

Unknown Manchester IA Newspaper:

"The funeral of Mr. Robinson was held on Saturday afternoon at two o'clock from the Methodist Episcopal church at Silver Creek (Iowa), and was attended by a great company of friends and neighbors. The services were held in the quiet churchyard, where, surrounded by the friends of years and those of his own kindred, all that was mortal of this splendid citizen were consigned to rest.

"Mr. Robinson came to Delaware comity in the days of its veriest infancy. The country was practically an untracked and unbroken wilderness, with but here and there the log shack of some venturesome pioneer. He cast his lot in a settlement containing as fine a body of citizens as exists in the county, but with its proportion forty years ago of disputes and quarrels which Mr. Robinson adjudicated with eminent fair ness and unfailing tact. He became known as the peace-maker of the community, enjoying the respect and confidence of all and earning the affection of the citizens of Silver Creek by the consistency and up rightness of his own life."
