      GEORGE W.

George W. was raised on a farm, and educated in the common schools. At the age of 18 he enlisted in Co. E, Thirty-eighth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, in which he served for three years and seven months.

      At the end of three years he veteranized, and remained in the service until the close of the war, participating in all the battles in which his regiment engaged, the most important of which were Perryville, Stone River, Hoover's Gap, Chickamauga, Lookout Mountain (the battle above the clouds), siege of Atlanta, Jonesboro, and was with Sherman in his "march to the sea"; was present at the surrender of Gen. Joe Johnston. He saw the war in all its phases, was in many close places, but returned home without receiving the slightest wound.

      Mr. Robertson was married in 1865, November 7, to Miss Maria Martin, a daughter of Squire John Martin, who was born in Harrison County, his father being one of the earliest settlers of that county. Squire Martin was a justice of the peace for twenty-six years; was a consistent member of the Methodist Church, and a class-leader, and at the time of his death bad been an official in that church for forty-one years; his wife, whose maiden name was Cassie Yates, survived him nine years.

      Her father, Robert Yates, was an early settler in Crawford County, and a miller. Mr. and Mrs. Robertson have had three children, viz: Cora A., Emma and Jesse. Cora married Marcus Benham, and lives at Woodsdale, Kan.; Emma is at home, and Jesse died at the age of 11 months. Mr. Robertson is a member of the Presbyterian Church, and a prominent member of the G. A. R. He owns a comfortable competence in the little town of Grantsburg and at present is engaged in the hotel business.
