Father Robinson
A Very Aged Colored Man Gone From Earth-History of his Life and Services to his Country
On Tuesday last we briefly announced the fact that James Robinson, a colored man aged 115 years, died at his residence in what is known as Shannon alley at the rear of 135 Fort street, east, on the preceding Sunday. This old man was very well known to many of our citizens, and they attended his funeral on Tuesday, as also did hundreds of colored people. Appropriate funeral services were held in the Colored M.E.

From his remarks made on the occasion, we gather the following facts from the eventual history of the deceased.
