    Note Robert Lee's birth date is reported here as June 1892.  several other records report the date as 27 June 1894.  On his military records, beginning with WWI registration, the date is 27 June 1894.  On the application for his military headstone, the date first typed in was June 27 1893, then this was corrected in the confirmation review to 27 June 1894, which is also the date on his grave.

    The birth date of 27 June 1894 given here conflicts with other sources.  Note that the 1900 census reports his birth date as June 1892.  The Dawes records say Robert was 9 years old in September 1902, meaning he was born in 1892 or 1893 as the Dawes card estimates.  If he was born in 1894, he would have been not yet 8 years old at the Dawes registration.  The age in the 1910 census matches more closely with birth in 1894.  1930 fits a 1893 date.  Some genealogies split the difference reporting the year as 1893.

    Several genealogies reports a child who was born and died between the censuses.  No source information is given, but several of these have such careful detail, it shows they are reporting form firm family sources.

    Death 26 Aug 1916
    Parents Robert L Thompson 1894 - 1954, Norah Bessie Lee 1895 - 1954
    --  Brevard/Harris,

    The 1920 and later censuses report all Robert's hosuehold as White, even though Robert was a Chickasaw by blood (and earlier registerd as a Choctaw by blood).,  His mother Minnie was 1/8 Choctaw and 1/8 Chickasaw.  All previous Indian tribal registratoins report Robert as Indian, and the 19100 and 1910 censuses do also.

    After the 1920 census, Robert moved to Guthrie in Logan County, Oklahoma.    Another child is reported by some genealogies, who was born in Guthrie but lived only a short time between these censuses.  It is interesting that they named this child Charles also, although Charles, reported as 3 years old in the 1920 census and 11 in 1930, lived to adulthood.
