My genealogical infor was pasted on to me by a cousin abt 10 years ago- she went to that site - there was a Robert Jr. no data?
Robert Sr had multi-Wifes-Indian-Pre-1855 that area was all Choctaw.
So stories that he was alive after the war and fell off a horse is not why his holdings went to probate.
