" Looking For Arthur, Arther Family, Cambria, Clearfield Pa "
My Grandfather, C.B, Clayton Burleigh, Bert Arthur b.1876/1879, my Fathers father...
My name is Burt Kinney Arthur of Spanaway, Washington. To my knowledge I am the last living male adult of our family name and having resourced all I can to find my Grandfathers past have found nothing further back than 1907 in Washington State, other than what was written on official documents there has been no physcial evidence to prove he came from Pennslvania. I have hit the preverbial wall.
Perhaps he was born in a differant family, perhaps and it has been suggested that he may have been adopted, I have not been able to verify either.
From his Obits from 1951 when he passed on it states that amoung his living family here he had a sister in Salix, Pa who survived him, a Mrs Silas Miller...I believe her name was Missouri ( Mazie ) Bell Arthur but again the trail of connecting material never visualizes, I have spoken via E-mail with a long linage family member who is numerious generationn remove ( Varner Family ) from their Great Great Great Grandmother but they too have no knowlege of her maiden name or other family contacts, She died years later then he brother Clayton in Ohio but is buried near her husband in Salix Pa.
I am going to be 57 years old this year...I have been happily married since 1982 and my wife and I were blessed in 1998 with a son who now appears to be all that is left. As I get older it has become most important to me to connect my son to his Heritage...I have run out of options. There have been many wonderful people who have assisted but like myself their resources have dryed up too. Thanks to all of you who cared enough to contact me but now I am asking again for others help.
Because I work and am the sole provider for my family I don't have alot of spare time, it just so happens that today I am home from a healing back injury and have been able to tolerate sitting this long to write this passage.
If you find inspiration to contact me concerning what I have eluded to the most I can say is a heart felt thank you in advance. If I can help you as well please let me know, I don't know to what capacity that would be but time will tell.
Sincerely , Burt Kinney Arthur
