  • Genealogical Notes 
    • There is evidence of three birth years for Robert: 1849, 1852 abd 1857. I chose to go with the age taken from the 1911 census. That particular census seemed to be filled out neatly and carefully as if someone had been careful with it and all of the other ages that were listed there were corroborated by another source. Tho other possibility is 1857 as that is the birth year placed on the cemetery record. The 1901 census lists is birthday as Dec., 5, 1851.

      In 1901 Robert is living in Rama. In 1900 Robert was living at Concession M, Lot 9, Cooper's Falls.

      The 1887 County Map for Rama Township shpws Robert as the owner of Lots 9 and 10 in Concession M.

      According to the newspaper article of his death, Robert moved west in April 1911. Prior to that time he had lived in Rama Township where he had come in 1870 with his parents. They had settled on lot 9. concession M.

      According to the same newspaper article Robert had been a Presbyterian, a Conservative and a member of the Orange Association.
