About William Burnside Robinson

"Like all their neighbors, "William and Tillie" lived at first in a log house, which was situated a little North of his own land on the property of his brother, James.

Later they built on their own land, the first frame house in the community.

Six children were born to the couple, part of them in the frame house. In the high tide of their family development the heavy blow fell. William contracted typhoid fever at a time when that disease was taking its toll on the community. Within the next two years the remaining members of the family, including the mother had Typhoid fever and two children, Sarah and James died. Over the years Tillie and her remaining four children carried on.

Tillie's daughter married and established homes of their own. Maggie married William Carrothers. Eliza Anne Married William Temple and they lived most of their life in Fort Dodge. They had one son William, Jr. who was an Artist. He married Elsie McMahan who was also an artist.
