From "The Mullins Enterprise", 29 May 1951:

"Final Rites Today For Mrs. Robbins"

"Mrs. H.W. (Henry Wallie) Robbins, 69, passed away at her home early Tuesday evening after a long illness which became more critical within the past week. She had been in declining health for the past five years.

The daughter of the late James M. and Sallie Elvington Meares, she was Miss Artie Meares before her marriage. She had made her home in Mullins for many years, having moved here from the Kemper community.

Before declining health forced her retirement from her usual routine, Mrs. Robbins was particularly active in church work, and her ministries to those in trouble or in need were unnumbered. From her gardens, lovely flowers and vegetables were dispensed without measure and many a home was brightened with color because of her skill with growing plants. A devoted wife and mother, she was a good neighbor, in every sense of the word.

Funeral services will be held this morning at 11 o'clock from the home on North Park Street, with her pastor, the Rev. Percy B. Upchurch, Baptist minister, assisted by the Rev. G.H. Varn of Marion, Superintendent of the Marion District Methodist Churches. Internment will follow at Cedardale Cemetery.

Mrs. Robbins was the widow of Henry Wallie Robbins and is survived by four sons: Lacy B. of Conway; W. Spencer, of Pageland; Woodrow W. of Newport News, VA; and James R., of Tampa, Fla.; three daughters: Mrs. L.H. Hill of Chattanooga, TN; Mrs. Albert L. Heard, Jr. of Long Beach, CA and Miss Frances Robbins of the home; also ten grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, four brothers: E.M. Meares, M.S. Meares and J. Foster Meares, all of Nichols, and Dr. C.M. Meares of Mexico City, Mexico; two sisters: Mrs. Minnie Anderson of Nichols and Mrs. W.E. Rogers of Marion.

Active pallbearers will include A.M. Counts, Mike Hodge, Waldo Hinson, G.H. Stovall, Dr. C.B. McKenzie and J.A. Tillery."

From "The Mullins Enterprise", approx. 12 April 1947 "H.W. Robbins Passes Thursday After Heart Attack"

"Henry Wallie Robbins, 66-year-old resident of Mullins, died at his home early Thursday morning after an illness of only a few hours. He had been in poor health for some years but the end came most unexpectedly following a fatal heart attack. The news of his passing came as a distinct shock to the entire community.

Mr. Robbins, who was a retired postal employee, was widely known throughout the county as a Christian gentleman, devoted to his family and his church.

Funeral services were held Friday afternoon from the residence. His pastor, the Rev. Percy B. Upchurch, of the First Baptist Church, was assisted by the Rev. G.H. Varn, of Conway, former minister of the Macedonia Methodist Church of Mullins. Burial followed at Cedardale.

Pallbearers included: L.E. Hodge, Boyce R. Clardy, J.A. Tillery, J.S. Carter, J.C. Hooks, and A.M. Counts.

Mr. Robbins is survived by his widow, the former Miss Artie Meares, four sons: Lacy B. Robbins of Conway, Captain Robert James Robbins of the U.S. Army Air Corps in New Mexico, W. Spencer Robbins of Pageland and Woodrow W. Robbins of Newport News, VA; three daughters: Miss Frances Robbins of Mullins, Mrs. L.H. Hill of Chattanooga, TN and Mrs. Albert L. Heard, Jr. of Long Beach, CA."

From "The Mullins Enterprise" Nov. 11, 1956 "Lacy B. Robbins, Former Resident, Dies in Conway"

"Lacy B. Robbins, 52, of Conway died Sunday afternoon at his home after an extended illness.

Funeral services were conducted Tuesday morning from the Goldfinch Funeral Home in Conway by the Rev. Fred W. Hedgepath, assisted by the Rev. G.H. Varn, Pastor of the Kingstree Methodist Church. Burial followed in Cedardale Cemetery in Mullins.

A native of the Green Sea section of Horry County, Mr. Robbins was the son of the late Henry Wallie and Artie Meares Robbins. He was reared in Mullins, but made his home in Conway from 1941 to 1951 when he moved to Kingstree. Last August, he moved back to Conway and has been ill since that time.

Mr. Robbins was twice married. Surviving his first marriage are two sons: William G. Robbins and Lacy B. Robbins, Jr., both of Charlotte, N.C. and three daughters: Mrs. Glyn Mayberry of Dallas, Tex., Mrs. Irving Racklin and Mrs. Frank Smith, both of Hyathsville, Maryland.

Surviving are also his widow, Mrs. Isabelle Perry Robbins and by this union two daughters, Sherry and Janice Robbins, all of Conway.

Also surviving are three brothers: R. James Robbins of Colorado Springs, Colorado, W. Spencer Robbins of Pageland and W. Woodrow Robbins of Newport News, VA; three sisters: Mrs. L.H. Hill of Chattanooga, TN, Mrs. A.L. Heard, Jr. of Los Alamitos, CA and Miss Frances Robbins of Mullins and six grandchildren."
