Arthur was a 3rd cousin, 1x removed although I never knew him. My home town is Shippensburg and was his also. He was 20+ yrs older than I, so no reason I would have known him. We are related through the Dice family in Franklin and Cumberland Counties. My husband found the obituary and said he must be a relative of mine. We both have ongoing family genealogies so I checked and did have Arthur in my tree but very little information therein. Condolences to Arthur's family, spouse and children from
