Biography of Ozias Robinson
Bristol County, MA Biographies

Robinson, Ozias, was born in Mansfield in 1808, the family being among the early settlers of Raynham, tracing their descent from William Robinson who came from England about 1640. Ozias Robinson married for his first wife, Sarah H., daughter of Israel and Martha Goward, by whom he had Ozias Edwin; his second wife was Rachel Jane, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Newcomb; their children were Richard Ames and Sarah Elizabeth. He was identified in Mansfield as a carriage manufacturer, farmer and real estate dealer, and was accustomed to ride through the country selling his carriages, as was the custom in those days. In his earlier days he was much interested in church and Sunday school work, and was very earnest and energetic in whatever business he was engaged; he had a keen sense of justice and what seemed to him the right. In 1881 he moved to Attleborough, retiring from active life, where he spent his declining years in a well earned rest, after a very busy life. He died in 1897, living to within a few weeks of his ninetieth birthday.
