Robb, Clarinda Amelia (26 July 1846 - 3 June 1931)


Deceased Was Wife of One of Neillsville's Two Civil War Veterans

Neillsville--Mrs. Nelson Robb, wife of one of Neillsville's two Civil War veterans, passed away at the home of her son, Ralph Robb, in the town of Hewitt yesterday morning at 9:20, after a lingering illness. Mr. and Mrs. Robb, whose sixty-fifth wedding anniversary occurred last March, have a residence in Neillsville but had been living with their son for the past few weeks.

Mrs. Robb was born Clarinda Amelia Walker in Postville, now Stuart, Green county, Wis., July 26, 1846, and spent the first 60 years of her life there. She was married to Nelson Robb March 18, 1866, shortly after his return from the war and was engaged with him in farming there until they moved to Blanchardville in LaFayette county 40 years later.

They lived at Blanchardville until 1929, when they settled in Neillsville, where they have made their home ever since. Three of their six children have passed away, and the remaining three, Ralph of Hewitt, Mrs. Erick Loberg of Christie, and Mrs. Taylor Thompson of Black River, survive with their father. There are also 16 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren.

Definite arrangements for the funeral have not been made, pending word from distant relatives.
