Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 17, 1814
Wayne County
Indiana, USA
Death: Sep. 16, 1863
Tippecanoe County
Indiana, USA

Robert married Kezia Peters on March 3, 1836, in Tippecanoe County. Robert and Kezia had eleven children:

1. Perry M.
2. Mary Nancy
3. Susanna (Married Caleb Lingo - Spelled Linge on marriage record.)
4. Corene Angeline (Married Joseph Humbert)
5. Oliver Hazard (name of 1st wife unknown; 2nd wife, Maggie Schaffer)
6. Harriet Eliza (Married James Campbell)
7. William Henry (1st wife, Sarah Felix; 2nd wife, Hattie Alvin)
8. Martha Ellen (married Alexander McMeekin)
9. Theodore (Married Mary Clementine Brackney)
10. Sarah Elizabeth
11. Kezia Jane (Married Alfred Lester).

Robert's estate is on file in Lafayette, Indiana. There is no indication in the estate of how he died, but he had been ill for some time. In his estate, there were bills from three different doctors for his care, dating from August 18 to the day he died.

We do not know for certain that Robert is buried here in the Canal Cemetery, but his two children who died before him are buried here, and we feel it is a good possibility. If anyone has information confirming that Robert is buried somewhere else, please let me know.
