  • Notes 
    • Notes mention a John J. Moffat, formerly from Davenport, Iowa, who later lived in Muskogee, Indian Territory (Oklahoma)

      Sidenote: After Robert's wife died (leaving him with 5 kids) they all moved in with Wallace, who was a very stabilizing influence through a tough time. You'll find them all together in the 1930 census. [1, 3]
