Arthur W. Squier And His Extended Family

The Arthur Squier family was living in Whitehall, Michigan, when the 1884 MI Census Muskegon was taken.  Arthur was a physician, living with his second wife, Norilla Henderson Squier, and their children, Clara and George.  Arthur, age 64, was born in Vermont.  Norilla, age 36, was born in Canada.  The children, ages 15 and 12, were both born in Michigan.

Next door was Robert Henderson, age 35, who was born in Illinois, his wife, Julia, age 37, who was born in Ohio, with daughters Lou (age 12), Ada and Ida (age 9), who were all born in Illinois.  Under the category that included disabilities, it was noted that Robert had one leg.  He worked in a cigar factory.

Arthur Squier died 2 July 1888, in Whitehall, Muskegon County, Michigan.  Norilla died 21 June 1917, in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

My grandkids and Arthur Squier have shared ancestors.
