Notes for *THOMAS (TOM) ARTHUR:
Tom & Hattie moved to TX from GA between 1897 and 1900. They were in the 1900 Falls County Texas Cencus before moving to Waco, McLennan, Texas.  Here they divorced. Tom moved to Brady, Texas where he remarried and had a son.  Hattie remarried and was widowed.

Jane A. Schwarz Combs Notes for *HATTIE M. BUTLER:
In 1985 when I started this research, I found that my Gr.Grandmother (Hattie Butler Arthur) had only a small cemetary marker.  This was found after much digging as the marker had sank into the ground about 5 or 6 inches. After calling the cem. office, it was dug up and replaced.  This continued to bother me so in the summer of 1986 I ordered a small headstone of pink Georgia Granite for her grave. Two of her grandchildren, Jane Whitehurst Hawkins & Juanita Whitehurst Boyd also contributed to the cost.

For years, Hattie's throat was somewhat paralyzed.  She sipped liquids from a teaspoon.  As she was dying, she asked for a glass of water, and turned the glass up and drank her fill, then layed back and died!

Hattie and Tom Arthur were found in Falls County TX in the 1900 Census.  From the Waco City Directory: In 1910, two of her sons are listed, Chester Arthur and Howard Arthur.  Hattie shows up in 1917-1918 as Hattie Arthur, Mrs., dressmaker, res. 1117 Clay.  In 1919-1920: Arthur Hattie, Mrs., drsmkr r 1117 Clay.  1921-1922
Arthur Hattie (wid Thos) r. 1117 Clay. (Tom left her and went to west TX and they divorced). In
Waco City Directory:
1923-1924: Arthur Hattie (wid Thos) r. 1117 Clay.  In 1926-1927: Arthur Hattie (wid Thos) h1117 Clay.  In 1928-1929: Arthur Hattie (wid Thos) drsmakr 1117 Clay.  In 1930: Arthur (wid Thos) h 1117 Clay. Same in 1932-1933 and 1934.  In 1936: Arthur Hattie (wid Thos) h 402 S. 17th St. Same in 1937, 1938.
In 1941: Arthur Hattie (wid Thos) h415 S. 17th St. Same in 1943.  In 1945: Arthur Hattie (wid Tom) r1211 Wood Av. (she died in Nov of 1944)

Voca,TX after  his death.  All pictures and documents were lost due to a
flood in brady.  Told to me by Bassett Arthur in 1988

Information from Linwood Arthur via Dan Sadberry (6-30-1999): Thomas lived and died in the small town of Cullybacky, County Aurian, Ireland located 25 miles Northwest of Belfast.  Thomas probably had more children, but have found no record of them.  The name of Thomas' wife is undetermined at this time. (10-27-98).  AUTHUR Name Origins:  "ARTHUR, G. Artair, MG Arthuir, Eir. Artur, from Oir, art, a 'bear', W. arth.  The name may point to early Celtic worship of the bear, whence Artogenos, 'son of Artos', W. Arthgen (SGS., 1, p.11).  The name occurs several times, both among the northern and southern Cymry at the close of the sixth and beginning of the seventh centuries.  (Zimmer, Nennius Vidicatus, p. 284).  Aedan mao Gabrain, king Dalriata, whose mother was a British princess, named his eldest son Arthur, "the first Gael, so far as we know to bear that name" (Watson1,p.129).  John of Kyncorth is mentioned in 1435 (RAA.,II,p.69).  Thomas Harthawr witnessed a commission of bailiary, 1511 (Panmure, II, 279).  John Airtheor juror on retour of special service in Duns, Berwickshire, 1678 (Home, 194). "The fore-name Arthur is common in Shetland now (1879), but I rather think it is only a seventeenth or eighteenth century corrupt form of the Old Northern 'Ottar'.  Last century, 'Ottlo' or Otto' or Ottie' was a frequent forename here; and now no case of it occurs.  In our North Isles it has even been Judaised into 'Hosea', so that 'Otto Ottoson' was transmutted into 'Hosea Hoseason'-so written, but pronounced 'Ossie Osieson' " (Arthur Laurenson in letter to Karl Blind, Ninetheenth century, V, p. 1112).  Arcthure 1686, Arthure 1530, Arthwire 1556.  Chester Alan Arthur (1830-1886), twenty-first President of the United States, was a son of a Belfast minister of Scottish descent."  George F. Black, 1993.
