Robin, Mary Watson (1853–1899)

Much sympathy is felt for the Rev J. de Q Robin, M.A. of Ballarat, in the death of Mrs Robin at Hawthorn, after a long and painful illness. She was the daughter of the Rev. Joseph Waterhouse, Wesleyan minister, who was drowned in the wreck of the Tararua on the New Zealand coast. The late Mrs Robin’s health was never robust after the shock she received through the drowning of one of her children in company with his cousin at Ocean-grove about two years ago.
