Robert’s parents came to Indiana from Jessamine County, Kentucky, before he was born. He and his family left the state about 1855 for Iowa. In northern Iowa, there were several meetings with Indians, so the family moved back to Clark County in southern Iowa before the 1860 census. After Robert’s second marriage, he moved to Worth County, Missouri. There were two other children born to Robert and Rachel.
