Born at 9 pm

Robert married Jean in the United Free Church, Dundee and had John Allen and L Dundas as their witnesses. We have evidence of Margarets passage to America of a Robert Dundas as being a cousin.

Robert sailed from Glasgow to NYork on the SS. Caledonia on 18 October 1913. Whether he worked his passage as a Furnace Charger or paid we do not know. He was initially going to his cousin, David Moffat, 1215 Rhode Island St, San Fransisco, California. 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. There is an entry on the incoming passenger lists for a Robert and Jean Moffat. Departure from Canada arriving in Greenock on 15 Sept 1932. It was the Canadian Pacific Line and the ship was the Duchess of York. Their address in Glasgow was given as 138 Moncur St, Glasgow S.E. Robert was listed as a painter.
