I'm looking for information for an Arthur Kennedy born in the region of Portland, Ontario, Canada and husband of Ella Elizabeth Taylor. I have no date of birth or parent names but he died around 1974 from a stroke and he had siblings named Percy, Jack and Bob. He was most likely buried in either Bath, Newboro or Portland, Ontario, Canada. He was also called Pete by some people but I'm unsure why.

Do you know roughly how old he was when he died?
There are some Arthur Kennedys on the 1921 Canada census. If you think he might have been old enough to be on there then I would suggest that as a starting point for trying to find out more about him. One born in 1915 has brothers Jack and Robert and 3 sister. No Percy. Might be worth a look.

Thank you so much for finding this for me Eddie! Unfortunately this one is not the Arthur I'm looking for.
Unfortunately I don't know how old he was when he died. My father, Arthur's son, is 75 now and doesn't remember dates and ages very well. I'm going to pop on over to the 1921 census and see if that is my Arthur. Thank you for your help!

Here is a FAG memorial for who I believe to be Arthur's father.  Arthur was born about 1915 and Percy was born in 1893.
