Josiah Arthur was born in 1826, in Thurmont, Frederick County, Maryland, the son of John and Susanna Zimmerman Arthur. He married on January 1, 1850, in Frederick County, to Margaret Ann Eliza Valentine, daughter of Henry and Mary Margaret Smith Valentine. They moved to Pickaway County, Ohio, in 1854, following his wife's parents, who'd migrated there a few years before. Josiah and Margaret never had children. Apparently sometime after the death of his wife, he moved back to Maryland, where he passed away on November 30, 1890. He was buried on December 4th in Forest Cemetery, Circleville, Pickaway County, Ohio.
