  • Notes 
    • Arthur's middle name, Laughlin, is probably taken from Grandison and Electa's marriage minister's last name, A. D. Laughlin.
      Moved in 1864 from Iowa County, Wisconsin with his parents by covered wagon to Dubuque and from there by train to Alden, Iowa where his folks homesteaded. Uncle Arthur lived there all his life.

      Census Records
      1900 Alden, Hardin Co., IA Lists his parents as being born in New York. Why did he say that? Or did the census taker get it wrong?
