Information on this page is from History of Rensselaer Co., New York by Nathaniel Bartlett Sylvester, published in 1880.

AMATUS ROBBINS, M. D., was educated at Williams College, and studied medicine with Dr. Ely Burritt, an old and eminent physician of Troy. Dr. Robbins received his license June 9, 1818. After Dr. Burritt's death he succeeded him in his practice and married his daughter, who soon followed her father to the grave and left her husband desolate, - a stroke, it is said, from which he never recovered. He died June 15, 1854. He was said to have been a gentleman of the old school, refined in manners, dignified and reserved in his deportment, without asceticism. He enjoyed a most select practice.
