"Born and raised in Scotland, Robert came to America as a young adult and befriended the Roosevelt and Selmes families and joined the Rough Riders during the Spanish American War. In 1908, three years after his marriage to Isabella Dinsmore Selmes, he was diagnosed with tuberculosis. After spending time at the popular sanitarium at Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks, the family moved to near Tyrone, New Mexico, and eventually built a home on a ranch there.
