     The following biographical information appeared in the book Past and Present of DeKalb County, Illinois published in Chicago, Illinois, 1907:
ROBERT R. RENWICK
Among the prosperous and representative agriculturists of Mayfield township may be numbered Robert R. Renwick, who owns and operates one hundred and fifty-seven acres of well improved land on section 29. He was born on this place August 15, 1866, a son of George and Mary (Young) Renwick, who were natives of Scotland and Canada respectively. They came to the United States in 1835, settling on the farm which is now the home of our subject.

Robert R. Renwick pursued his education in the district schools near his father's home. He was early trained to the duties of the home farm, assisting his father in the cultivation of the land and the care of the crops, so that he was well fitted to continue work along this line when he started out in life on his own account. With the exception of a brief period of two years he has spent his entire life on this farm and during the years that have come and gone he has worked diligently and earnestly in his efforts to acquire a competence. He has brought the fields under a high state of cultivation and each year harvests rich and abundant crops as a reward for the care and labor which he bestows upon the fields. He is practical and progressive in all that he does, keeping everything about his place in a good state of repair, so that his property is numbered among the valuable farms of Mayfield township.

Choosing a companion and helpmate for life's journey, Mr. Renwick was married December 17, 1890, to Miss Alice Rote, a daughter of Samuel Rote, a farmer of Mayfield township, and his sketch appears elsewhere in this volume. Two children, a son and daughter, have come to bless the home of Mr. and Mrs. Renwick : Clive Duaue, who was born July 19, 1892; and Gladys Irene, born May 11, 1900.

Mr. Renwick gives stalwart support to the republican party and has taken an active interest in its work, having served as tax collector of his township, while for the past twelve years he has served as school director, the cause of education finding in him a warm friend. Fraternally he is identified with the Modern Woodmen of America, belonging to camp No. 47, at Sycamore, while both he and his wife hold membership relations with the Methodist Episcopal church in their township. They are a highly esteemed couple of their community, having a host of warm and lasting friends, while Mr. Renwick is everywhere known as a substantial and reliable man in his business transactions.3

     His name was also recorded as Tommy.4
     The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the True Republican published in Sycamore, Illinois 10 March 1883:
DIED
In South Grove, Sunday morning, March 4, after a short illness of only ten days, of typhoid pneumonia, Tommy Renwick, elder son of Mr. and Mrs. James Renwick, in the ninteenth (sic) year of his age.

Deceased had been attending school at Rockford, when sickness compelled him to return home, only to die. He was exceedingly popular with all classes, both old and young, and at his sudden death the whole community, it might be said, was draped in mourning. Death is ever the messenger of sadness. It never finds its victims waiting with folded hands the final summons, yet there are times and reasons specially (sic) inappropriate for his visits. To the old and wary with the cares and labors of life, it offers, rest. Yet the survivors are slow to recognize the fitness of the opportunity, and feel no less their bereavement. To the middle aged it tells of hopes unfulfilled, while those who survive ponder the incompleteness of human life. But there us a peculiar sadness felt when the summons comes to the one on the threshold of life, whose mental abilities gave promise of such bright future; when in the midst of bright hopes the shadow turns back on the dial and goes out in darkness, and the unlived life is lost to our sight forever, then it is that all things on earth become shadows, and human life is mockery. Earth offers no consolation for such grief, and it is vain to offer sympathy in such bereavement. The funeral services were conducted at the family residence by the Rev. George Clark; the remains being followed to the cemetery, not only by the relatives, but by many sympathizing friends of which the long funeral train was composed. G.D.G.4

George Renwick Died in an Auto
Had Hurried to School to Adjust Heater
----------------------------
West School Janitor
----------------------------
Citizen Well Known Here For Over 40 Years Met Sudden Death While Engaged In His Usual Duties. -- Funeral This Wednesday Afternoon
----------------------------

A great shock to his family and friends was the death of George Renwick, an old-time resident of Sycamore, who expired in an automobile on his way from the West school, where he was employed as janitor, to his home on North Cross street at about the noon hour on Monday.

Mr. Renwick was in the habit of going to his dinner early and returning to the school about 12 o'clock when the teachers left for dinner, and during their absence the janitor looked after the few children that remained over the noon hour and cared for the building. Monday while he was at dinner a neighbor came in and said he had been telephoned for to come to the school; that there was trouble with the heating apparatus. He hurried afoot to the school. It developed later that a steam gauge had opened and was letting steam from the heater out into the basement, and that there was an electric light turned on, which illuminated the steam so that the teachers thought there was some evidence of fire. Mr. Peterson, the superintendent, who resides in that neighborhood arrived at the school at about the time of the arrival of Mr. Renwick, who soon stopped the leaking steam. He remarked that he did ot (sic) feel well, then fainted, and Dr. Evans was sent for. Mr. Renwick was able to put on his rubbers ad deliberately prepared to go home with the two men. He got into the automobile nearly to his home when the doctor saw that Renwick was dead. The cause of death was believed to have been heart disease.

George Renwick was 69 years of age, and had resided in Sycamore and vicinity nearly all his years. He was an expert with horses, and for many years had been employed in livery stables. For the last four years he had been employed as janitor in the Sycamore schools. He was not in robust health and was unable to do heavy work, but was always dependable and willing to do what he could.

Several years ago he was married, to Mrs. Reingard, who survives with her three children by a former marriage. He also leaves a brother Walter Renwick, a resident of Sycamore.

The funeral services will be held at the home 144 North Cross street this Wednesday at 1:30 o'clock p.m., at the Methodist church at 2 p.m., and the interment will be in Ohio Grove cemetery.7
