Narrative

I think this is the John McArthur who married Ellen Mountain in Alberton, PEI went to Advance, Pembina, North Dakota around 1882.

There was a census entry for John McArthur age 25, Ellen, age 24 and son, born June 1880, in Lot 3.

Unfortunately, all of the US and North Dakota census records just say born in Canada - although John and Ellen did name a son Lemuel, a common Island name. They had been married 32 years, by 1910, which matches their date of marriage in PEI. And their eldest son William was born in Canada, June 1880.

In 1900, children were William Mcarthur 19, Mary E Mcarthur 18, John C Mcarthur 13, Effie J Mcarthur 11, Upton Bell Mcarthur 7, Inez V Mcarthur 4 and Lemuel M Mcarthur 1.

Their daughter Mary E. said her parents were John McArthur and Ellen Mountain on a social security application.

Ellen was a widow in 1920.
