Robert F. Adler was born 24 Mar 1906 in Hoboken, New Jersey. His mother was Catherine Mathilde Hansen whose parents Charles Emanuel Hansen and Mathilde Bergersen immigrated from Norway in 1881 to New York. Catherine's two children, Robert and Frana grew up mostly in New Jersey in their Aunt Florence's home. Catherine married a wealthy broker Frederick M. Adler and Robert took his name. Robert moved to the west coast to work with horses and ended up working with Darryl Zanuck as a horse trainer and starred in many westerns because of his talent with horses and handling. His parents moved to California in the 30's and died there, as did Robert. I can find no records of any marriage...but an engagement to a Nellie M. Davis in 1934...
