  • Notes 
    • Robert married Jean in the United Free Church, Dundee and had John Allen and L Dundas as their witnesses.

      Robert sailed from Glasgow to NYork on the SS. Caledonia on 18 October 1913. Whether he worked his passaged as a Furnace Charger or paid we do not know. He left his wife behind at 104 Lochee Road, Wishaw, I think because she was mentioned as next of kin. The story goes that he worked in a bar over there and was either involved or witnessed a gun fight. He returned to Glasgow for a short time either on the reward money or to let the dust settle. [1]
