Robert moved with his family from Ala. to Dubach, La. and married there to Elizabeth Jane KEMP about 1865. Robert Martin AUTREY purchased land in Coryell County; he sold it in 1874. He returned to Dubach, La. and left again in 1877 and on the way to Bowie County, he stopped the wagon for the birth of his sixth child, Colvin Abraham AUTREY.
