Mrs. Lucy Robinson Storrs, Wife of Reuben Storrs

Lois Robinson was born in Connecticut in 1786. She married Reuben Storrs in 1810. Lucy traveled with her husband from Connecticut to the state of New York, and then on to Perkins Township, Erie County , Ohio, where Reuben Storrs farmed the land, with his loving wife at his side. Lucy and Reuben were married for fifty years, before her death on February 20, 1860. Reuben’s obituary stated about Lucy, “a more faithful and patient wife is seldom found.” Lucy Robinson Storrs was buried in the old Perkins Cemetery. An inscription on her tombstone reads:

“Dearest Mother thou hast left us
Here thy loss we deeply feel
But ‘tis God that hath bereft us
He can all our sorrows heal.”
