Hon. Robert H. Hotchkiss, of Plymouth, Sheboygan County, died at his son-in-law's, in New York City, September 29th, in the sixtieth year of his age. He was born at Smithfield, Madison County, N. Y., December 24th, 1818; and devoted the earlier portion of his life to the printing business. He early settled in Sheboygan County, representing his district in the Assembly in 1857, and in the Senate in 1859-60, and again in 1868. While in the Senate, he introduced the State printing law, which, since changed in some of its details, has worked so successfully since its passage. He also held numerous local offices of trust and responsibility.
