Robert Eggert, of section 15, Eaton Township, Clark County, was born in Lincolnshire, England, about the year 1837. He was left an orphan when quite young, and the records of his birth were lost, except as they exist in the Church of England. He landed in Quebec, Canada. May 1, 1883, and in May of the next year came to this county, settling on his present farm of eighty acres. It was then covered with heavy timber, and he had to chop a place to build his log cabin; he now has twenty-three acres cleared.

Mr. Eggert was married in Yorkshire, November 24, 1866, to Ann Donkin, a native of that place, and daughter of George Dankin, deceased. They have five children: George R., John H., William, Alfred and Minnie. George and John are now working for themselves. Mr. and Mrs. Eggert and their two sons, William and John, are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mr. Eggert was a member of the Ancient Order of Foresters in the old country for twenty years.
