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.2

     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

Local and Personal Brevities
...The celebrated Renwick divorce suit that has been interesting all Rockford and many relatives and friends in Sycamore and vicinity was dismissed Saturday afternoon by Judge Fuller for want of equity. Blanch E. Renwick brought suit against Robert H. Renwick for separate maintenance.16

     The following article appeared in the Sycamore, Illinois The True Republican, 4 December 1901 :
RENWICK WINS
     Former Resident of South Grove Successfully Defends Action Brought By Wife.
     The decision in the Renwick divorce case at Rockford; was a sweeping victory for the husband, Robert Renwick, who was sued tor separate maintenance by his wife Blanche Billings Renwick. In his decision Judge Fuller gave a seething rebuke to the woman.
     Mr . Renwick has fought the case bitterly claiming a conspiracy to get part of his property. The evidence has been of such a character that, no women have attended court and the newspapers omit all of it.
     Referring to the case the Rockford Star says:
     Judge Fuller dissolved the injunction upon Mr. Renwick's farm and personal property and against seeing his child, and dismissed the complainant's bill for want of equity. It was a complete victory for Mr. Renwick.
     When Judge Fuller had finished his remarks a wave of applause swept over the court room. "Don't do that!" exclaimed the judge, raising his hand warningly, and the demonstration of approval ceased . But there was no question of the satisfaction of the audience over the decision.
     When Mr . Frost had finished, Judge Fuller immediately began with his opinion. The court spoke impressively, almost dramatically. He spoke off-band, but his words indicated that none of the details of the case had escaped him, while at the same time be gave a clear exposition of the equities of the case. The court on the legal points declared with fine emphasis that those seeking equity must do equity and must come into court with clean hands. He dissolved the injunction and dismissed the bill.17

     The following article appeared in the Sycamore, Illinois The True Republican, 14 December 1901 :
Local and Personal Brevities
Mrs. Robert Renwick, of Rockford, has now brought suit against Robert Renwick for divorce on charge of cruelty, and asks that he be restrained from disposing of his property. The case will be heard in January.18

DIES ON WAY TO HIS HOME
     George Renwick Becomes Exhausted As He Runs Back to His School Duties
     WAS WELL KNOWN
     Sycamore and community was thrown into sudden gloom yesterday afternoon to hear of the sudden death of one of Sycamore’s oldest and most respected citizens, while acting in the capacity of janitor of the West School.
     It seems that while Mr. Renwick went home for his luncheon during the noon hour, something went wrong at the school, a leak or some trouble in the steam pipes, causing a great quantity of steam to escape, thus filling the boiler room and those adjacent, and eventually the whole school.
     Mr. Renwick was immediately summoned, it is believed, and conditions at the school were exaggerate (sic). Leaving his meal partly untouched, he hastened to the school, running the entire distance of four block, and in a very nervous state of mind.
     Arriving at the school, the man was nearly exhausted, and those standing near, seeing him in that condition, quickly went to his aid while a doctor was called. Striving to tear away from those that held him, to get to the boiler room was all that was on the man's mind, making desperate attempts to release himself from their grasp.
     Dr. Evans soon arrived on the scene and advised taking the patient home as soon as possible, realizing his condition was serious. While in the car en route home, George Renwick passed away. Doctors on the case pronounce the man died of cardiac dilation of the heart.
     Mr. Renwick had been in excellent health most of his life, but in the last few years had often complained of not feeling so well as he should. It is thought that the nervous strain induced by hart trouble, was the cause of his sudden death.O
     George Renwick was born on a farm in Cortland township, August 5. 1885 (sic), the son William and Mary Ann Renwick. It was in the same township that his early years were spent, where where (sic) he engaged in faming for a great number of years, and will be remembered among old friends as a man well adapted to the occupation.
He was united in marriage to Mrs. Riegard, mother of Charles and Waiter Riegard, and Mrs. Guy Grimes of DeKalb, in October. 1895. To his union was born one child, William, who died at the tender age of 12 years, breaking his parent’s heart.
     Mr. and Mrs. Renwick remained on the farm for several years, after which they moved to Sycamore and made their home at 144 North Cross street. Here they lived for several years, Mr. Renwick being employed by a business house in the city. He worked with them for several years and also was a valued employe of the express company of this city. For the last few years he has been janitor of the West school, where he has proved most efficient and faithful in his dotes as custodian of the building. School children will miss the kind old man who always had their interests at heart. Among those left to mourn his death are his wife, Mrs. Renwick, and stop-sons and one daughter.
     Funeral services will be held from the home Wednesday afternoon at one o'clock. Rev. James O’May officiating, and burial will be in the Sycamore cemetery.
     Friends and acquaintances will join Mrs. Renwick in mourning for her late husband as he was so well known in this vicinity and respected by all who knew him, School children at the West school are in sorrow for the loss of their friend.10

     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.9
