At her home in Orbitello, Kansas, Jan. 3, 1888, Rozena Hoyt, wife of Samuel Bloomfield. She was born Nov. 12, 1839, in Meigs County, Ohio. At an early age she united with the Church of Christ and was always very earnest and active in serving her Master. By her first marriage she had three sons, C.L.C., Eli and Ellsworth Robinson. She came to Kansas in 1871 and was married to Samuel Bloomfield Feb. 14, 1872. She made home happy. George Fredrick and Charles Hadden Bloomfield were the children of her second marriage. The last four years of her life she suffered greatly, but God gave her grace to rejoice in Him in her greatest pain. So thoughtful was she for the comfort of others that she would forget her own sufferings in thinking of her family. She made many friends, who more than filled the school house in Orbitello at her funeral. They wept as they saw their loved one, who had so often comforted and counseled them and ministered to their necessities, now lying cold in her coffin.

The Robinson Milling Company, Salina Kansas by the Robinson Milling Company, Salina Kansas
The Robinson Milling Company, Salina Kansas by The Robinson Milling Company, Salina Kansas This is an illustrated letter head from the now closed flour mill "The Robinson Milling Company, Salina Kansas" from December 9, 1920. The illustration is of their warehouse and grain elevators located on the corner of 9th, and North Street Salina Kansas. There are also two illustrated automobile, and two train cars. On either side of that main illustration are representations of two of their products. "Robin's Best Flour" which has a drawing of a bird on a branch, and "Betty Jane Flour" which has a girl swinging on a swing, attached to a tree branch. In visible light, the watermark on the paper cannot be seen. But if it is held up to the light, it shows the words "Public Service Bond" and a number. I also included a photograph that I took of the same location on June 01, 2015. Nearly 95 years after this letter was dated.
