Research Notes

  • Unless they were twins born 1 day apart, either Israel or Victor Arthur does not belong with these parents. According to both the 1900 and 1910 US Census, Louise had only 11 children - 7 living in 1900, 6 living in 1910. David died in 1906 explaining the difference. Israel is in the birth register for Wayne County with parents Victor Peters (Stove Master, Born in Canada) and Louisa Peters. The record contains no indication that he was a twin. -- "Michigan, County Births, 1867-1917"
