Arthur was born in Rathwell, Manitoba on January 9, 1898 (it is likely that he was in fact born in 1899 or 1900 and lied about his age). He enlisted in the Canadian army in 1916. In 1929, Arthur and his wife Belle came to the Hythe area and filed on a homestead at 14-73-12-W6. Arthur died in Hythe on April 25, 1960 at the age of sixty.
