Robinson, Charles G
Robinson, Charles G., a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in Newville, N.Y., in 1822, and when nineteen years of age was converted. Although early impressed that it was his duty to preach, he endeavored by diligent attention to other duties to pacify his conscience. At length he yielded, and was received on trial in the Oneida Conference in 1852. He was ordained deacon in 1854, and elder in 1856; but the condition of his health forbade active service, and, taking a supernumerary relation, he went in October, 1856, to Mansfield, O., where his parents resided, and failing rapidly, died on the 24th of the same month. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1857, p. 293.
