McArthur, George William

Birth Name McArthur, George William
Gender male
Age at Death 69 years, 6 months, 13 days

Narrative

George was a widower when he married Alice Moore March 11 1877. Witnesses at the marriage were Ann (McDougall) and Horatio Robinson.

He was a married man, living in lodgings in Calais, Maine in 1880, but without his wife Alice. She must have joined him later that year, because she was with him in the 1900 census. Their eldest son Charles was born on the Island, but the next daughter Drucilla was born in Maine in December 1880.

On his death record, his parents names were Malcolm McArthur and Barbara McDougall. The newspaper added that he was a native of Bideford, PEI. I believe that George's first wife was Barbara McDougall, and this led to the error on his death record.
