Robert was the only one of Lincoln's four sons, to live past the age of 18. Edward Baker Lincoln or "Eddie" was born in 1846, and died just 6 weeks before his 4th birthday, on February 1, 1850.

William Wallace Lincoln or "Willie" was born in December of 1850, and died in February of 1862; he was just 11. The cause of death was likely Typhoid fever contracted by drinking contaminated water. Thomas "Tad" Lincoln was born in April of 1853, and died in July of 1871, at the age of 18. He likely died from tuberculosis.
