When Robert's parents (John & Sarah) moved to Bargo it seems he stayed on with his grandmother at Castlereagh which was near Parramatta/Nepean districts. When he was age 20, in 1834, he married Susanah Tindall. They had seven sons and eight daughters.

Sometime between 1835 & 1858 they moved to the Cooma district. Probably in 1844 after his grandmother Maria Williams (nee Haynes) died.

In 1862 they moved to the Bega district where he was a farmer. At age 66 on 16/9/1880 he died of heart disease. He was buried at Bega by the Church of England minister. Subsequently, the head stone was moved a short distance to the existing cemetery to permit the construction of a school on the grave site. However, his body was not moved and Robert still lies beneath that school.

One of Robert & Susanah's sons was named John who is the direct link in our family. Let's call him John (2nd). He was born at Penrith, or Nepean as it was then know, in 1835, the exact date is not known. It is likely he accompanied his parents from Nepean to Numerella and Cooma.

He is the third generation Australian in our family.
