Robert B. Nisbet, an old and honored resident of the town of Lee, died Tuesday morning at his home near Stokes, heart disease being the cause of death. Deceased was of Quaker descent and was born in Newport, Herkimer county in 1820, and when but 5 years old his parents moved into the house where he died. He had always lived there, excepting a short time spent in the west. His death, coming as it did unexpectedly, is a source of deep regret to all who had the pleasure of the acquaintance of Mr. Nisbet. He is survived by his wife, formerly Rhoda Ward, whom he married nearly 50 years ago, two sons, Ward H. and R. Bruce Nisbet of this city (Rome), and two daughters, Mrs. O. A. Carpenter of this city and Miss Gertrude H. who lives at home, and one sister, Mrs. George Harger, of Deansboro. Mr. Nisbet's father was one of the first settlers of the town of Lee.

NISBET - La Porte, Indiana, August 14, 1884, Rev. SAMUEL NISBET, aged 78 years.
The people of this village and vicinity were shocked and pained last Thursday (August 14, 1884), when a telegram announced that Rev. Samuel Nisbet, of this place, had been run over by the cars and had died from the injuries thus received. Mr. Nisbet started the Monday evening previous, accompanied by his daughter-in-law (who had been visiting here several weeks) intending to visit his sons in the West. They reached La Porte, Ind., Wednesday morning, when the train stops ten minutes. He got off here, but being misinformed, thought the train stopped twenty minutes instead of ten, consequently the train started before he was aware. Catching hold of the railing to the platform he was thrown under the cars, the remainder of the train passing over his left leg, just below the knee, crushing it so that amputation became necessary. To perform the operation medicines were given to relieve pain that made him unconscious, from which he did not revive. His son Jefferson, living about 100 miles from La Porte, was telegraphed, and reached the scene of the accident a few hours before his father died. He arrived here (Delta, NY) Friday morning with the remains. A large number of friends and neighbors from this and adjourning towns were in attendance at the funderal, Saturday (August 16, 1884) at 11 o'clock. Baron Steuben Lodge, F. and A.M. of which deceased was chaplain at the time of his death, attended in a body. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. C. E. Dorr, assisted by Rev. J. W. Simpson of Lee Center, S. Dewey, of Taberg, and L.L. Palmer of Rome. Mr. Nisbet was 78 years old and had passed the greater part of his life in Lee. His wife died a year ago last winter. After that he sold his farm and last summer purchased a residence in this village. Two sons and three daughters survive him -- Jefferson Nisbet, Earlville, Illinois, Samuel Nisbet, Jr., who also resides West: Mrs. Caroline Markham, St. Johnsville, NY: Mrs. Hannah Cook, Taberg, NY: and Mrs. Dollie Edgerton, who had resided with her father since the death of her husband D.O. Edgerton, a few years ago. Mr. Nisbet was a member of the M.E. Church, an examplary Christian, a zealous worker, and for several years a local preacher. He will be greatly missed in the societies to which he belonged, and also by the community generally.
