Hi all,

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NV3Y-HJW

Marriage

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NJ7K-38L

He departed Liverpool England 12 April 1921

His Naturalization took place in 1922 in Detroit, Wayne, Michigan USA.

Hi Kieran,

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NJ7K-38L
 -married in 1913 in Deptford to an Adelaide Richards (fathers are John Francis Cousins and Abraham Newland Richards)

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:C3QC-RK3Z
 - Declaration of intention 1922 (note that this is not the full naturalisation - it is the first stage of the process) says that he arrived from Windsor, Canada, via Canadian Pacific Railway.  I can't find the petition for naturalisation for him - didn't necessarily take place in the same location.

His wife Adelaide was still in England at this time.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QK3T-WQ37
 - on arrival, he mentions his wife at home in England  (as far as I can tell, she never came to the US)

He is travelling with Annie E Cousins, 33, and her daughter Lillian, 7 - Lillian was born in Detroit. They were heading to W.T. Cousins, husband of Annie and cousin of Arthur.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MZWC-VPM
- 1920 William and Annie Cousins and daughter Lillian

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KHM1-SHM
 - 1940 with two additional children

No sign that Arthur stayed with them :(

He may be the "Frank Cousins" lodging in Detroit in 1930:

Age and immigration date are approximately correct. This man is a carpenter whereas Arthur lists himself as a painter/decorator on arrival into the US.

I don't know how to give the link but if you Google "Arthur Cousins, Detroit" there is an appeal for information about him, missing from 1922, dated 2017. It says he left a wife and four children.
