Birth: unknown
Nova Scotia, Canada
Death: Jan. 7, 1865
Alpine County
California, USA

He apparently was a timber-cutter, and died while "rolling logs at Crow's Camp, near Centerville" when a heavy log rolled over him, "crushing him so severely that he died within five hours." Arthur was estimated to be between 38-42 years of age at the time of his death. A brother had predeceased him. Sadly, "Before his death he requested that his friends in Nova Scotia might be informed of the manner of his death, but the bystanders failed to obtain either names or locality." Information from Monitor Gazette, Jan 7, 1865. A similar report was published in the Sacramento Daily Union of Jan. 20, 1865, and notes that the log rolled over the lower portion of his body.
