From newspaper obituary - 1915:
Mrs Mary Robison
The death at Harvey Station on the 17th of Mrs Mary Robison, widow of the late Marshall Robison, removes one of the most highly respected and oldest residents of this part of the country, being 81 years of age. She died at her home after a lingering and painful illness from gangrene. About four years ago it became necessary to have one leg amputated on account of this disease. In spite of this great affliction she continued to be quite active until about eight months ago, when gangrene became rooted in her other foot and gradually spread through her system, causing a very painful death. She was the daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Thos Herbert, having come here with her parents from England in the year 1837, when she was but three years of age. She was a woman possessed of great kindliness, strength of character and executive ability, and never considered any task heavy when performed for those she loved. Of thirteen children, ten survive her. They are Andrew, William and Allan, of Harvey Station; Frederick, of New Haven, Mass.; Robert, Alexander and Kenneth, of Vancouver, BC; Mrs Robt. A. Little, of York Mills; Mrs John Dore, of Stockton Springs, and Mrs David G. Taylor, of Boston, Mass.
One sister, Mrs Jane Robison, of Harvey Station, also survives. The funeral services were held on Friday at her late home at 3.30 o'clock, the officiating clergyman being Rev. J. F. McKay, of Harvey Station.
She married Marshall Robison, son of Marshall Robison I & Jane Dickson, 1 Nov 1853 in Fredericton By Rev. Dr. John M. Brooke . Born 24 Oct 1824 in Hawick, Scot. Died 11 Jan 1897 in Harvey. Buried in Harvey Settlement Cemetery. Occupation Farmer. Religion Presbyterian.
