He served in the Revolutionary War; his declaration of May 15, 1843 in Harrison County, Indiana stated that he had volunteered under Gen. Hand and Colonel Gibson; later he was drafted at Walltowers Station in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. "One tour of service was a substitute for his father who gave him a good farm for doing it." He was also a private under Capt. Minton, Youghiogheny County, Virginia. In Pennsylvania Arch. S. Ser. V. 4, p428, Robert is listed as a private in Westmoreland and a private in the Continental Line. In 1782, Robert Applegate acknowledged receiving several sums annexed to his name.

In 1786, Robert Applegate, single, was taxed 10.6. In the 1790 census, he was listed as having 2 sons and 1 daughter. In 1791, he was taxed 1.0. On Apr. 15, 1801, he received 100 acres of land called "Apple Orchard" in Elizabeth Twp, from his parents. This land was sold to James Wall, Jr. on Apr. 1, 1842 with Robert, Irwin, Mary, and Catherine signing the deed.
