669 Reverend Gershom Hobart graduated from Harvard in 1667. He resided in Plymouth, Groton, and Hingham Massachusetts. He was ordained in Groton, where he was the pastor of the Congregational Church there. The minister and the congregation did not always live together harmoniously. There was much dissension about his salary and where the new meeting house would be built to replace the one burned by the Indians in the 1676 massacre. He was dismissed in Dec 1685, but continued to preach in Groton occasionally for almost 20 more years. Gershom lost two children in the second massacre of Groton on 27 Jul 1694. One was killed, and the other, nine year old Gershom, was held captive for nearly a year before being ransomed by his captors.  HOBART, Reverend Gershom (I85810)

Dick was commissioned 2nd lieutenant in the U.S. Army, and served from 1942 to 1945 in the European Theater. He mustered out with the rank of major. Returning to his job at GE, Dick worked tirelessly until his retirement in 1983. Dick was active in Boy Scout Troop 11, and was an Elder and a Deacon at his church for many years.

Catharine Garber had son William Garber when she married Robert.

Robert's oldest son John wrote on Robert's death certificate, "Deceased was orphaned at the age of four years" which coincides with his father James taking a new partner, Ruth Young, in 1937. 
ROBERTSON, Robert (I85946)
675 Robert Robison, son of Matilda Amelia and Howard Sheridan Robison, was born April 24, 1898, on the family farm north of Scandia and died November 2, 1982, at the Belleview Manor, Belleville, Kansas at the age of 84 years, 6 months and 9 days. Bob received his education at Pleasant Valley, District 24. As a young man he was engaged in farming with his father and later worked for himself. During the early Forties he worked for the Missouri Pacific Railroad. He later joined a road construction crew and worked for Reece Construction Company from 1947 until his retirement in 1961. After retirement, he made his home in Scandia. Bob was a member of Masonic Lodge No. 221 and received his 35-year membership pin in April 1975. He was preceded in death by his parents; two half-sisters- Amy Garber and Katie Garber Isaacson; his twin brother Edward; his brother Sherman; and his sister Sadie. Survivors include three sisters ? Adah and Edna of the home and Josie in the Belle-View Manor, Belleville; two sisters-in-law, Mrs. Grace Robison, Manhattan; and Mrs. Myrtle Robison, Belleville and several nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends. - THE SCANDIA JOURNAL Thursday, November 11, 1982 ROBISON, Robert Royter (I86032)

677 Robert was recorded in 1793 as one the owners of a distillery in Buckingham, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
STRAYHORN, Robert (I86048)
678 Robert was the brother of our great-grandfather, John Calvin Strahorn. He was born east of Bellefonte in Haines Twp. Centre Co., Pennsylvania. He wrote later how as a boy, he was impressed by Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln-Douglas debates in 1858. He was a newspaper correspondent for the Denver News and New York Times during the Sioux campaigns of 1876-77, and fought alongside General Crook while covering the Battle of Rosebud. He was the first head of the Publicity Department of the Union Pacific Railroad from 1877-1783, and wrote extensively about the resources and attractions of the western states, resulting in waves of migration into those territories. He was instrumental in building the Oregon Short Line Railroad from Granger, Wyoming to Huntington, Oregon and in the process founded the towns of Caldwell, Weiser, Payette, Shoshone, and Hailey in Idaho, and Ontario in Oregon. He was a founder and trustee of the College of Idaho in Caldwell. He went broke in the panic of 1893, then spent six years trading municipal bonds in Boston. He went on to found the North Coast Railroad, and built Union Station in Spokane (which was demolished in 1974 for the Spokane World's Fair) and almost 750 miles of track in Washington state, under a secret financial arrangement with E.H. Harriman. This clandestine arrangement earned Robert the moniker "The Sphinx." The North Coast Railroad was consolidated into the Oregon Washington Railroad & Navigation Co. with Robert as Vice President and General Manager. In the 1930s Robert acquired most of a city block in San Francisco, but lost it all in the Great Depression. He died in 1944 in San Francisco (not in Spokane as is claimed elsewhere) and his remains are interred in a granite and marble mausoleum in Spokane along with both of his wives. There were no children from either marriage. Upon his death in San Francisco in 1944, Robert's remains were taken by his best friend Thurlow Bryant to Spokane, and his personal effects, including his steamer trunk, his personalized binoculars, numerous photos and papers, and the publishing rights to his autobiography, were taken by Thurlow to his home in Caldwell, Idaho. Thurlow's wife Nellie gave these items to us in 1995 because we were the only relatives who had ever inquired after him. Thurlow died in Caldwell in 1992, and Nellie in 2001. - Gary Zentmyer STRAHORN, Robert Edmund (I85878)

680 Roberta Z. Welch, 93, of Landisville, died Tuesday at Hillside Care Center, Marin County, Calif. She had been visiting her daughter, Barbara Brooks of Novato, Calif. She died of complications following an accidental fall. Mrs. Welch assisted her husband with his work as a chemical engineering consultant. Early in her life she worked in the accounting department of West Virginia Pulp & Paper Co. She was a volunteer for the Head Start program and a member of Hempfield United Methodist Church. An avid bridge player, she enjoyed knitting and gourmet cooking. A valedictorian of Tyrone High School, Class of 1921, she attended Ohio Wesleyan College. Born in Tyrone, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Edna Taylor Zentmyer. Her husband, W. Arthur Welch, died in 1992. Besides her daughter Barbara, she is survived by another daughter, Betsy W., wife of James C. Lennon of Marietta; three grandchildren; and a great-grandson. Her brother, David Zentmyer, preceded her in death. Intelligencer Journal (Lancaster, PA) - March 6, 1998 ZENTMYER, Mary Roberta (I838)

683 Ruth 'Chita' O'Connor wrote in June 1976 in the Orange County Genealogical Society Quarterly that her father was "Charles Elmore Cosby (changed to Charles E. De Cillo ca. 1901)," and her California Death Certificate from 1996 reads, "Mother's Maiden Name: Decillo, Father's Surname: Cosby."

DE CILLO, Ruth Wandyne (I86112)
684 Ruth, writing in 1983, told the story of Susannah North, an ancestor she traces through Keziah Chase, wife of Amos Hobart b.1774. According to Ruth, Susannah was found guilty of being a witch in Salem Village on 2 May 1692, and hanged on 19 July 1692 on Gallows Hill. She was buried on said Hill, because witches could not be buried in the church cemetery.

DE CILLO, Ruth Wandyne (I86112)
685 Sadie gave birth to their third child soon after she had contacted small pox. Both Sadie and the child died during or shortly after the birth. She was staying at her mother's home in Vanderbilt, PA at the time of death.

686 Samuel apparently spent his life in America in Philadelphia, moving there after 1824. In various Philadelphia city directories, he was listed as a stone cutter from 1829 to 1933. Between 1835 and 1847, Samuel was listed variously as a blacksmith, innkeeper, gunsmith, and locksmith, although there were also other persons named Samuel Lehman in those years. In the 1850 US Census he listed his occupation as 'None.' Then from 1854 to 1863 he was listed as a bricklayer, with the exception of 1862 when he was listed as a moulder, a person who carved stone. (Samuel's son George had been listed as a moulder in the 1850 Census) In 1867, the year of his death, Samuel was listed as a water color manufacturer, certainly working for his son-in-law Joseph Brutsche because his listed address, 250 S. 10th, was also Joseph's address, and Joseph was in fact a water color manufacturer.
