Birth: May 3, 1835 Wayne,Ashtabula County, Ohio, USA
Death: Feb. 4, 1911 Nashville, Barry County, Michigan, USA

Note: Obituary originally posted to Robert Gunn by ranfamsearch on the Ancestry Randolf family tree. Newspaper publication unknown.

Robert Gunn was born in Wayne, Ashtebulah <sic> County, Ohio, May 3, 1835 and died Februaray 4, 1911, at the age of 75 years, 9 months and three days.

He was married October 10, 1858, to Miss Harriett Bacon at Groton, New York. They moved to Michigan in 1867, and settled at Vermontville, where he resided until about three years ago, when he came to Nashville to live with his daughter, Mrs. Emma Bussell, where he was living when he died.

He had nine children, of whom eight are living, Mrs. Samantha Hickman having died in 1905. Those surviving are William Gunn, Mrs. Emma Bussell, Mrs. Etta Hickman, and Mrs. Libbie Messimer of Nashville, Mrs. Adda Simons and Clayton Gunn of Bellevue, Mrs. Carrie Ferguson of Detroit, and Mrs. Hattie Amos of Owosso. He had twelve grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Besides these he leaves three sisters and one brother to mourn their loss; Mrs. S.J. Cooper of Battlecreek, Mrs. Cal Sperry of Three Oaks, Mrs. Arminta Beger of Elkhart, Indiana, and Conrad Gunn of Kalamazoo.

His wife died about three years ago while they lived at Vermontville, and without doubt the grief of separation hastened his departure. He was a loving husband and a kind father. He was a contractor and carpenter by trade and was well known in this vicinity. He had been ailing for some time, but was in his usual health Saturday morning when he ate a hearty breakfast. Soon after he complained of pain in his breast and died very suddenly of heart failure.

The funeral services were held from the home of his daughter, Mrs. Bussell, Wednesday, February 8, Rev. F.L. Niles officiating.
