    Obituary 15 Feb 1835 
    • Mr. Roblin was an active, promising young man, aged twenty five years. His loss will be long and deeply felt by all with whom he was acquainted. How true it is, that "in the midst of life, we are in death!" (Com. Sophiasburg, February 15, 1835)
    Obituary 21 Feb 1835 
    • Melancholy Occurrence - On Wednesday last (the 11th inst.), as Mr. Caleb Roblin, son of Philip Roblin, Esqr., of Sophiasburg, was crossing the Mohawk Bay, to the former place, with a load of oak lumber, his horse and himself fell through the ice, where all were unfortunately drowned. He had in company with him a young man by the name of Peter Wood, with another team, which was also lost; Wood only making his escape. Diligent search was made for the body of Mr. Roblin by the surrounding neighbours, (to whom his relatives feel themselves under heavy obligations for their kindness and humanity), but having toiled till after midnight they abandoned the search till day light, when the corpse was found. His funeral took place on Saturday - a very impressive discourse was delivered on the occasion by the Revd. Mr. Marcus from these memorable words: "Jesus wept." His remains were followed to the grave by a numerous assembly of friends and acquaintance.
