Note from Rosie Lundquist

Received a nice email from Rosie Lundquist.  Eva Robbins Lindsey is her great great grandmother.  I am hoping to correspond more with this new-found cousin in the future. Hope you enjoy the site, Rosie.

Robbins' Sisters

Lillian Robbins Pacey Perkinson "Lil"
Evangaline Robbins Lindsey "Eva"
Mary Alice Robbins Mitchell "Allie"

On the back of this photo written in my Grandmother, Mildred Arnold's, handwriting is:  Aunt Lil, Aunt Eva, And Aunt Allie. And someone else's writing states:  Ed Robbins' daughters. Hal's Sisters.

I don't know the date of the photo, but the girls look very young to me.

Alice A. Robbins


Mary Alice Vanduzer was born in New York, February 9th 1842. She was the second child of eight children born to W. H. and Mary Vanduzer. When a small child she moved with her parents to Wisconsin and was married to E. G. S. Robbins March 2nd, 1862. To this union were born six children: Lillian Perkinson, Onarga, Ill.; Fred L. deceased; Eva Lindsey, Churdan, Iowa; Alice Mitchell, deceased; Halsey D., Buckley, Ill.; and Olin B., Dwight, Ill.
For several years they lived in Wisconsin, then moved to a farm near Thawville, Ill., where they resided until the death of the husband 26 years ago, at which time she moved to Thawville, where she resided 18 years. Due to failing health, she made her home with her daughters, Mrs. Lillian Pacey, at Buckley, Ill., and Mrs. Eva Lindsey, at Churdan, Iowa. The illness of Mrs. Lindsey made it necessary to bring her to her son, Olin, in Dwight, where she passed away June 29th, 1931, at the age of 89 years, 4 months and 20 days.
She leaves besides her children, fourteen grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren, one brother and one sister, a host of relatives and friends.
Mrs. Robbins was a woman of strong personality and during her life worked very hard. She was a sure support to her husband and a kind and loving mother to her children. She lived long enough to realize the return of the kind care from her children that she had given them.
Just before leaving Iowa for the home of her son, at Dwight, she fell and sustained a broken arm and from the shock of the fracture she did not seem to survive.
The body was taken to her former home at Thawville and the funeral services wer held at the Methodist church at 2 o'clock on Wednesday, the services being conducted by John T. Killup, of Buckley. The service was largely attended and many from Buckley were in attendance. Interment was in the beautiful Thawville cemetery.
