Robert was the second husband of my Great, Great Grandmother Caroline Gregory nee Vile. They married at Nundle on 18.9.1878 and resided on his property named “Rosemont” near Nundle NSW.  The property is now part of a larger station and the original homestead is long gone and the paddock reverted to natural pasture. Robert died in Tamworth Base Hospital on 25.6.1887 and is buried in the Tamworth Council Cemetery and his grave is un-marked. His stepson William owned 10 grave plots in the Presbyterian section and it is believed he is in one of these. Caroline is also we believe buried in one of these plots.  Her grave is also unmarked and no record of her burial can be found.
