Robert Hale Ives, son of Thomas Poynton Ives [1769-1839] and Hope Brown [1773-1855], began his mercantile career with Brown & Ives in 1816, and became a partner in 1832. He was active in establishing both the Butler Hospital and Rhode Island Hospital, and was a trustee of Brown University for 45 years. In 1827, he married Harriet Bowen Amory.
Robert Hale and Harriet (Amory) Ives had four children, only one of whom survived past the age of 30. Their first child died in infancy. One daughter, Harriet Bowen Ives [1832-1860], died of consumption at the age of 28. A son, Lieut. Robert Hale Ives Jr. [1837-1862], died at age 25, of wounds suffered at the Battle of Antietam. Their eldest daughter, Elizabeth Amory Ives [1830-1897], united the Ives and Gammell families by marrying William Gammell in 1851, a man 18 years her senior.
