In 1882 he became an apprentice to Mr. Armstrong, who was a civil engineer with the Great Western Railway in England.

 

Travel to India

By October 1885, Robert had travelled to India, where he became an assistant with the East Indian Railway.

On October 9, 1888, back in England, he married Eugenie Grace Hayllar.

Robert and Eugenie remained in India until about the mid-1890s, and perhaps somewhat later. Robert was associated with voluntary military affairs in India, where he acquired the rank of “major,” which he often used during his later years.

 

Robert in Canada: Without Eugenie

It appears that Robert moved to Canada about 1906, but Eugenie did not go to Canada with him. In 1911, Eugenie and her two sons were in England. Although it is not certain, it appears that Robert and Eugenie were divorced.

It appears that Eugenie never remarried. She died in Wallingford, Berkshire, England, on March 2, 1943.
