Robert Kind

OBITUARY

Robert Kind was born at Peterboro, England, November 4th, 1843, died at his home in Roachester, April 4th, 1927, aged 83 years and 5 months, having been a resident of the village for more than 50 years.

He was married in 1894 to Ella Snyder of Goshen, with whom he lived until her death which occurred May 14, 1920. She was buried at Goshen, May 17th, and on April 8th, 1927, he was tenderly laid to rest beside her with very appropriate ceremonies.
His father, Wm. Kind, with his family consisting of his wife, Alice, two sons. Robert and William Jr. and daughter Belle, emigrated to America in 1853, Robert being then about 10 years old.

On the breaking out of the Rebellion in 1861 he enlisted at the age of 17, becoming Corporal of Company C, Fifth, O. V. I. After a service of four and one half years he was honorably discharged and immediately re-enlisted but the war soon ended as also his services as a soldier, but as such he had participated in some 23 engagements, fought in the battles of Winchester, Cedar Mountain, Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and many other important battles, and was with Sherman on his famous march to the Sea.
His regiment the 5th Ohio, was involved in some fierce and bloody conflicts, was finally so cut to pieces that the survivors were distributed among other regiments.

Too much credit cannot be given him for the sacrifice and defense he made for his adopted country. He suffered fevers and other afflictions, but having a strong constitution he survived it all and lived to a ripe old age.

Shortly after the war was over he exempted a piece of government land in the state of Kansas and after some 5 years he returned to Ohio and to Roachester where he settled and remained until his death.

Robert Kind was too worthy a man and citizen to pass without comment of the praises of his life and citizenship to go unsung. His faithfulness and obedience to the laws his loyalty to the cause and institutions of his adopted country are to be highly commended and appreciated.

His life was plain and unostentatious, and though possessed of some peculiarities, he was always on the side of the right, a devoted Christian and a man of God.

He lived to see the principles for which he fought embodied in the forms of both individual and national life, a united country and freedom guaranteed to all its citizens who are obedient to its laws.

Lest we forget it is well to consider what the life of such a man as Robert Kind means to us as citizens. The privilege of being a citizen of this great Republic, the foremost and most potential nation of the world, the great teacher of other nations in how to be free. All this were not now only for such men as Robert Kind, who fought, bled and died that such might be.

Robert Kind, was but a man, and more than that he could not be on this earth. This was all he aimed to be, excepting as to kind and quality. In these he sought to be a Christian, a man of God constantly abiding in the presence of his Lord and Master, as all who knew and came into close contact with him can attest. He learned to know that all the knocks and blows which come of human strife and all the aches and pains which mortal man is heir to, are but the opportunities to test his love and faith in his God, and to give to his virtues a better chance to grow.

He was firm in the belief that death does not end all, death being but a separation of the soul and body. He bore his afflictions with a fortitude such as they possess who put their trust and faith in God. He is gone, but the principles for which he lived and for which he fought and for which he died, are become enduring forms of every day life. He fought a good fight, he has finished his course and is now come into that inheritance which the Lord giveth to all them who love his appearing.

Goodble old neighbor and old friend
Goodbye!
Your face and form on earth no
more I'll see.
To meet you where you now abide,
I'll try,
And share along with you,
Eternity.
