Great Great Grandfather John Arthur
« on: Thursday 19 December 19 19:14 GMT (UK) »
GGgrandfather John Arthur b 1795 d 1879
Born in Ireland as was his wife Sarah Elizabeth Moore, and immigrated to Ontario, Canada
His picture is clearer than Sarah's but gives an idea what they were both like, taken through glass.  Thanks in advance for all your help

I think you need to come forward a generation, this appears to be an 1880s image and the dates you give don't fit, the same with your other photo.

According to a tree on Ancestry, they had a son John Arthur born 1843 and died sometime after 1901.The photo could be of him. That would fit with a photo taken in the early 1900s as Jim has mentioned in your other post.

I think you might want to read through this earlier thread- supposed to be Thomas Arthur (born 1849)  & wife Elizabeth Henry (born 1858).
