March 12 1833

Died on the 27th February, MARGARET, wife of MR. HENRY ROBINSON, of Moyle, farmer, aged seventy-three, with whom she lived fifty years, a kind mother and sincere friend.

A loving, kind wife, who always trod

Fair Virtue’s path now the signal’s given

To fly this vale, she sought the blest abode;

Left here her cares, and found the wished-for heaven!

April 22 1834 Died in Omagh on Monday evening se’nnight, SARAH, wife of MR. JNO. ROBINSON, Printer and Bookseller. She had been confined about ten days before, but was about perfectly recovered, and was quite well on Saturday, but on the evening of that day she took suddenly ill and the next she was a corpse - a victim to that most mysterious disease, cholera. In every relation of life Mrs Robinson was beloved and esteemed. The respect in which she was held in Omagh will be best known by the fact, that on the moment her death was made known, every shop in the town was closed, and they were kept so until after her funeral. Her husband and six small children are left to deplore their irreparable loss, in the death of a most loving wife, and the fondest and best of mothers
