Birth: May 24, 1866
Round Mountain
Blanco County
Texas, USA
Death: Sep. 10, 1940
Ringgold County
Iowa, USA

He married CeLesta Engelman 15 Dec 1898 in Walnut, Pottawattamie, Iowa.
Their 12 children include: infants Bessie and Charles; Hazel, Fayrene, and George Wesley Davis.

Allegedly there is no record of Robert's burial here; however, since this is where he died, there is no reason to believe otherwise [see below!]. He apparently did not have a rapport with his children, so there probably is no stone, no matter where he was buried. They likely didn't have money for that sort of thing anyway. He may have been an indigent burial.
