    • The 1910 Illinois census shows Robert as the 1 & 1/12-yr old son of William and Florence Campbell, living at home with his parents and siblings. 1910 U.S.Census, Kendall twsp, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 624, roll 295, stamped p. 234). The 1920 census lists Robert as a 10-yr old boy living at home with his parents and 6 siblings. 1920 U.S.Census, Kendall twsp, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 625, Roll 380, stamped p. 42).

      The 1930 census shows Robert, 21, living at home with his parents William and Florence, together with siblings Russell, 18, Corinne, 15, and Donald, 14. 1930 U.S. Census, Kendall Twsp, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 626, Roll 522, ED 9, p. 4B).

      "After leaving Coe College during the early 1930's Robert worked on construction of roads and airfields in Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and other states in the Great Plains. After he and Betty married they moved to Anamosa where he opened a filling station. This was during World War II and rationing of gasoline was mandatory. In the 1950's he started a business blacktopping roads. After financial setbacks he went back on the road working for others as a roadboss doing blacktopping. During the last years of his working life Robert worked for his son George at a filling station in Anamosa."
