Both Robert and his wife, Sarah, were born and raised in the Scotch-Irish community near Ireland, Dubois County, Indiana.

Robert was a carpenter and moved his family west as the railroads opened the west with opportunities for those with building skills. By September 1878, they were in Walton, Kansas, and by March 1891 had moved on to Pueblo, Colorado.

In 1893 they moved back to the Kansas-Oklahoma area where Robert took part in making the Cherokee Strip Run. He homesteaded 11 miles northwest of Enid, Oklahoma, about four miles west and one mile south of Kremlin.
