  • (Interred) Obituary*: 12 February 1878; New York Herald, New York City, New York Co., New York, USA; (1) Gideon Welles went to Abraham Lincoln's bedside when he heard he had been shot. He later recorded his thoughts in his diary (15th April, 1865) The night was dark, cloudy, and damp, and about six it began to rain. I remained in the room until then without sitting or leaving it, when, there being a vacant chair which someone left at the foot of the bed, I occupied it for nearly two hours, listening to the heavy groans and witnessing the wasting life of the good and great man who was expiring before me. About 6 a.m. I experienced a feeling of faintness and, for the first time after entering the room, a little past eleven, I left it and the house, and took a short walk in the open air. It was a dark and gloomy morning, and rain set in before I returned to the house, some fifteen minutes later. Large groups of people were gathered every few yards, all anxious and solicitous. Some one or more from each group stepped forward as I passed to inquire into the condition of the President and to ask if there was no hope. Intense grief was on every countenance when I replied that the President could survive but a short time. The colored people especially - and there were at this time more of them, perhaps, than of whites - were overwhelmed with grief. A little before seven, I went into the room where the dying President was rapidly drawing near the closing moments. His wife soon after made her last visit to him. The death struggle had begun. Robert, his son, stood with several others at the head of his bed. He bore himself well, but on two occasions gave way to overpowering grief and sobbed aloud, turning his head and leaning on the shoulder of Senator Sumner. The respiration of the President became suspended at intervals and at last entirely ceased at twenty-two minutes past seven.

    Gideon Wells, Secretary of the Navy, born in Glastonbury, Connecticut, 1 July, 1802; died in Hartford, Connecticut, 11 February, 1878, entered Norwich University, Vermont, but, without being graduated, began to study law. In 1826 he became editor and part owner of the Hartford "Times," with which he remained connected until 1854, though he retired from the responsible editorship in 1836. He made his paper the chief organ of the Democratic Party in the state. It was the first to advocate the election of Andrew Jackson to the presidency, and earnestly upheld his administration. Mr. Welles was a member of the legislature in 1827-'35, and both in that body and in his journal attacked with severity the proposed measure to exclude from the courts witnesses that did not believe in a future state of rewards and punishments. He also labored for years to secure the abolition of imprisonment for debt, opposed special and private legislation, and secured the passage of general laws for the organization of financial corporations. He began an agitation for low postage before the subject had begun to attract general attention, he was chosen comptroller of the state by the legislature in 1835, and elected to that office by popular vote in 1842 and 1843, serving as postmaster of Hartford in the intervening years. From 1846 till 1849 he was chief of the bureau of provisions and clothing in the navy department at Washington. Mr. Welles had always opposed the extension of slavery. He identified himself with the newly formed Republican Party in 1855, and in 1856 was its candidate for governor of Connecticut. In 1860 he labored earnestly for the election of Abraham Lincoln, and on the latter's election Mr. Welles was given the portfolio of the navy in his cabinet. Here his executive ability compensated for his previous lack of special knowledge, and though many of his acts were bitterly criticised, his administration was popular with the navy and with the country at large. His facility as a writer made his state papers more interesting than such documents usually are. In his first report, dated 4 July, 1861, he announced the increase of the effective naval force from forty-two to eighty-two vessels. This and the subsequent increase in a few months to more than 500 vessels was largely due to his energy. In the report that has just been mentioned he also recommended investigations to secure the best iron-clads, and this class of vessels was introduced under his administration. In the cabinet Mr. Welles opposed all arbitrary measures, and objected to the declaration of a blockade of southern ports, holding that this was a virtual acknowledgment of belligerent rights, and that the preferable course would be to close our ports to foreign commerce by proclamation. By request of the president, he presented his ideas in writing; but the cabinet finally yielded to the views of Sec. Seward. Earn in the war, on 25 September, 1861, he ordered that the negro refugees that found their way to United States vessels should be enlisted in the navy. He held his post till the close of President Johnson's administration in 1869. In 1872 he acted with the Liberal Republicans, and in 1876 he advocated the election of Samuel J. Tilden, afterward taking strong grounds against the electoral commission and its decision. After his retirement from office he contributed freely to current literature on the political and other events of the civil war, and provoked hostile criticism by what many thought his harsh strictures on official conduct. In 1872 he published an elaborate paper to show that the capture of New Orleans in 1862 was due entirely to the Navy, and in 1873 volume entitled " Lincoln and Seward."

    Robbins

    Robbins is a very old and numerous surname in England , derived from the personal name, Robin , and identical with Robinson in derivation. There have been many prominent men of this family both in England and America .
    (I) John Robbins , progenitor of this family, lived at Hedingworth, Leicestershire, England , and his ancestors doubtless lived there for generations before him, though the lineage has not been traced. The name was common for many generations in that section. He was a large landowner and a man of substance. He died at Hedingworth , August 12, 1680 , probably about ninety years of age. His wife Hester was buried there August 7, 1697 . Children: John , mentioned below; Nicholas , 167 settled in Duxbury, Massachusetts ; Thomas settled in Duxbury ; Samuel , settled in Salisbury, Massachusetts , where he died in 1665 , leaving a will from which the remainder of the family is identified and the relationship established: Joseph , remained in England .
    (II) "Gentleman" John (2), son of John (1) Robbins , was born at Hedingworth, England . He settled at Wethersfield, Connecticut , as early as 1638 . He was a man of means and high social standing, whence the title "gentleman" given to him by historians. He had a grant of land at Wethersfield , October 10, 1638 , and other grants later. He was selectman in 1652 : deputy to the general court in 1653-56-57-59 . He died June 27, 1660 , and his inventory amounted to five hundred and seventy-nine pounds, nineteen shillings, four pence. He married, about the middle of September, 1639 , Mary , daughter or sister of Governor Thomas and Elizabeth Welles . The estate was distributed to the children by order of the court dated June 5, 1662 . Children: Mary , born January 20, 1641-42 , married Elizur Kimberly , schoolmaster; Hannah , April 30, 1643 , married Deacon William Warner ; Comfort, October 12, 1646 , married Theophilus Sherman ; John , April 29, 1649 ; Joshua , mentioned below; Samuel , born and died November, 1659 .

    (III) Captain Joshua , son of "Gentleman" John (2) Robbins , was born at Wethersfield , October 21, 1651-52 , died there December 15, 1738 . He held various offices of trust and honor in the town between 1678 and 1703 , and was a prominent and useful citizen. He married, December 24, 1680 , Elizabeth , daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth Butler . His wife died April 24, 1736 , aged about seventy-one. Children, born at Wethersfield : Joshua , born October 21, 1681 , mentioned below: Elizabeth , December 29, 1684 , married Nathaniel Talcott : Hannah , June 10, 1688 , married Joseph Welles ; Mary , January 10, 1692 , married Joseph Treat : Captain Jonathan , December 28, 1694 ; Abigail , June 12, 1697 , married, November 30, 1716 , Silas Belden ; Comford , 1699 , married John Coleman ; Sarah , December 31, 1703 , died December 29, 1710 .
