The Austin family removed from this village to New York several years ago. Robert Austin was born here October 13, 1894. At the time of his death he held the responsible position of office manager for the D. W. Griffith Motion Picture Corporation, being in charge of the New York office. He was married about two years ago. Besides his wife and parents he leaves four brothers, Maurice, Harry, Ralph and Lawton, all of New York city.

The Lowville Journal-Republican, September 11, 1924, p.7:

ATTENDS AUSTIN FUNERAL

James J. Donnelly, of this village, attended the funeral at Mount Vernon last Thursday of Robert Austin, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Austin, formerly of Lowville, who was drowned on Labor Day at Long Beach in his endeavor to save a young boy from a likely death. Mr. Austin was struck by a large comber and the undertow took him out. He was grabbed by several who were near him, and brought to shore, where life guards and doctors worked over him for more than two hours, but were unable to resuscitate him.  The force of the wave evidently injured him, and it was impossible to save his life.
