ROBERTSON, Charles Franklin, P. E. bishop, born in New York city, 2 March, 1835; died in St. Louis, Missouri, 1 May, 1886. He obtained a good education, and at first intended to enter upon a mercantile career, but, having his mind directed toward the ministry, he went to Yale, where he graduated in 1859. He then entered the Episcopal general theological seminary, and was graduated in 1862. He was ordained deacon in the Church of the Transfiguration, New York city, 29 June, 1862, by Bishop Horatio Potter, and priest in St. Mark's church, Malone, New York, 23 October, 1862, by the same bishop. He was rector of St. Mark's church, Malone, from 1862 till 1868, when he accepted a call to St. James's church, Batavia, New York. Immediately afterward he was elected second bishop of Missouri, and was consecrated in Grace church, New York city, 25 October, 1868. He received the degree of S. T. D. from Columbia in 1868, that of D. D. from the University of the south, Lewanee, Tennessee, in 1883, and that of LL.D. from the University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri, in 1883. Bishop Robertson was vice-president of the St. Louis social science association, and also of the National conference of charities and corrections.
