Arthur Tozer usually shows up as Arthur J. Tozer or Arthur W. Tozer. He was born in 15 August 1884, possibly in Queens, NY, son of Arthur C. Tozer (b. 1868). Mother is likely Elizabeth Wilson.
Arthur was the second husband of Agnes Jane Cavanagh, nee Armstrong, b. 18 January 1882 in Wellington, Ontario, Canada. Agnes and Arthur agreed to meet in Buffalo, NY and were married in 1907 at Grace Methodist Church on Michigan St in Buffalo. In addition to Agnes' son from her first marriage, Richard Cavanagh (b. 1901), Arthur and Agnes had two more children: William (b. 1910) and Robert (b. 1917). For the most part, Richard took Arthur's last name after Agnes and Arthur married, but may not have been legally adopted by Arthur.
All this is background. My actual question is, can anyone assist me with information on Arthur's death? Family lore has it that he was killed in a car accident on Hertel Ave in Buffalo, NY, in the 1930s. Everyone who would have had first-hand knowledge of this incident have long since died, and very few records for New York State (especially upstate NY) are available online. I don't know the exact date, nor do I know where he was buried. I do know he is NOT buried with Agnes; some time after Arthur's death, she returned to Ontario and was buried in the same cemetery as many of her birth family, in 1958.
I just joined tonight and have not yet uploaded a copy of my tree. Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated!
