She was married to John Robus in 1847, with whom she came to this country in 1850, coming direct to this place, where they have since resided and where four children were born to them, three of whom are still living. She was an affectionate wife, a kind mother, and much esteemed by her many friends, who earnestly sympathize with the bereaved family in their affliction. She was for 47 years a member of the Episcopal Church, and patiently watched the coming of death thro' two years and nine months of suffering, trusting in the mercy of her redeemer.

    • A very remarkable and nearly serious accident happened last Saturday evening at the house of John Robus. Robus had gone to bed, and his daughter Julia had gone to church. Mrs. Robus was the only one about the house. She has been quite sick with the asthma for a long while, and been in the habit of having a hot brick placed to her feet upon going to bed. On this evening she concluded not to want for Julia, and heated the brik, wrapped it in a cloth, placed it in the bed, and then retired herself, soon after falling asleep. When Julia returned, her father called to her that he smelled something burning. She looked around, but saw nothing and told him that everything appeared all right. Presently Robus called again and declared that he smelled feather burning and that she had better check her mother's brick. Then Julia went in to the room where her mother was, and raising the bed clothes, a blaze of fire burst out. She gave a scream, which awake her mother, and she was helped on. The fire had burned through two sheets, a blanket, quilt, feather bed, clear down to the straw; and had the discovery been longer delayed, very serious results may have ensued. [6]
