Robert was a Scottish immigrant. He was one of four canal contractors in Fountain County. He was involved in building the Wabash & Erie Canal.

Robert contracted TB and never recovered leaving a wife and children.

His friend, Hayes, who also worked on the canal, had a large stone brought to the cemetery for a tombstone and carved it out. The writing was never finished as the canal workers had to move on to a new location.
