George Robinson Dead

Hamburg Undertaker is Victim of Acute Indigestion

Taken ill during the night, George C. Robinson, well know Hamburg funeral director, succumbed early on Saturday morning to an attack of acute indigestion, brought on by the eating of seafood the night before. He had not been in the best of health and only a short time before had had several teeth removed, believing this would rid him of his run-down feeling. The news of his death spread over the county Saturday morning, casting a gloom in Hamburg and Franklin where he was very well known. He was also well known for his activities as a fireman. George Robinson and the fire department were synonymous, he always taking a leading interest in its affairs, and particularly was he in his glory at the annual county firemens [sic] parade, where he could always be seen at the head of the Hamburg firemen. Practically since his residence in Hamburg he had been the department’s drillmaster. He was fifty-seven years old.
