Here's what someone has written about him:
Robert Jackman came, when a young man, to America (in 1745) with
three brothers, and located in Washington county. In March, 1784, he
obtained from the Pennsylvania land office a warrant for the land now
the sites of the towns of California and Coal Centre, on the waters
of Pike run. These tracts were surveyed and enrolled in Patent Book
No. 15, page 255. The tract on the east side of the creek was called
"Allybar," and that on the west side, "Ararat." Robert married Sarah
Whittiker, and some say afterward Ann Dixon . His six children were
named as follows: Robert(born May 16, 1772), Henry (born August 7,
1774, married Sarah Sphar), Ruth (born May 7, 1779, married William
Gregg), Sarah (born May 15, 1781, married Joseph Nealan), Samuel
(born February 8, 1784), William (born January 4, 1786, married Nancy
Steele). Many members of this family finally settled in Indiana,
Illinois and Iowa. The father died in Washington county, and was
buried in the cemetery at California.


Note: According to Nina Jackman Ann Dixon was the wife of his son
Robert and not his second wife; but the children's ages are not possible!
