Finding themselves destitute and in dire need of a new direction: with his dreams of business enterprise shattered: Robert and his family once again turn their attention towards the big city of New York. Traveling together, they arrive and settle down in the Manhattan area.
At 38 years of age, Robert is working for Mr. Burroughts of Canal Street. The year is now 1815, and he has acquired the name of ‘Jumping Jesus’ due to his disposition of being quiet one moment: then without warning flying into a rage of anger, pushing his opinions on religion, and his understandings of its doctrine, onto his co-workers.
