You may recall the last name Oldham from a few stops ago when we met dear Birta. Arthur is her third son. He stayed in Fargo, adopted in by John and Emelia Anderson who were in their late 40's. In the 1930's and 40's, Arthur is still shown living at 1326 4th St N.

On July 27th, 1940, Authur married Marie Olson also of Fargo.

In 1942, Arthur was drafted into WWII at age 28. He was honorably discharged December 14, 1945. He passed away in 1949.
