The record also suggests that Robert and William were next-door neighbors, as were James, David, and Andrew. [census-us-1830-ps-oh-belmont-kirkwood-197, census-us-1830-ps-oh-belmont-kirkwood-200]
Robert was able to read and write, and owned real estate worth $500 in 1850. [census-us-1850-ps-oh-coshocton-adams-315b]
