His Father was Dr. Jason Richardson Arter (1825-1873), and his Mother was Maria Cynthia (Kingsbury) Arter (1829-1915). They are buried in Oil city, PA.

He was given the name of Michael Winfield Arter, but he went by the name of Winfield Scott Arter. This was perhaps to honor Winfield Scott (1786-1866), American military commander and political candidate. (Source:, 10 July 2021.)

Jane Berger (Arter) Brown (1888-1931)
