McArthur /Noseworthy

Hello everyone it has been awhile since my last post,
I have found a half sister to my great aunt Lucy Jane Noseworthy who married Frank King of Springhill NS

 Elsie Milley daughter born 1897 in Western Bay NL, daughter  John Milley and ?.
 Elsie married  George MacArthur and resided in Amherst NS.

To date I am still trying to find the connection of the parents of Lucy King(Noseworthy) and Elsie McArthur (Milley)

Take Care
Linda

informaiton obtained from
www,novascotiagenealogy.com
Lucy Jane Noseworthy m. Frank Reginald King 18 Dec. 1912
parents James and Naomi
James was a sailor but does not list whether he is still living
Elsie Milley was a witness.

Elsie Milley
on her marriage certificate lists her as born Western Bay, Nfld. Her father was John Milley and he was a miner.
On Elsie's death certificate, her mother's name is Naomi Whelan or Whalen
both Elsie and Lucy's mother's names are Naomi, that could be your connection. They may have the same mother and different father's.
I will see if I can find something else.
You can view the marriage and death certificates at the above site.

I did quite a bit more digging as I thought any Milley's in Springhill should all be related.
I checked the 1911 census and didn't find anything conclusive so I went to the 1901 census through
www.automatedgenealogy.com
this is what I found
1901 Census, District Cumberland, page 3, household/family 25, lines 42-50 and page 4, family 25, lines 1 and 2
There are some corrections at the bottom of the page. One of the corrections is for the head of family from male to female.

Mehola Milley, female, head, widow, b. Sept. 4, 1856, age 44, Newfoundland, immigrated to Canada 1896

Herbert Nosebury, male, son, single, b. Aug. 27 1881, age 19

Stewart Milley, male, stepson, single, b 1880, age 20

James A. Milley, male, stepson, b. Oct. 18 1876, age 24

William N. Milley, male, stepson, single, b. 1882, age 18

Haywood Milley, male, stepson, single, 1885, age 16

Gideon Milley, male, stepson, single, b. 1886, age 14

Lucy J. Noseway, female, daughter, single, b. Aug 4, 1887, age 13

Aereth M. Milley, female, daughter, single, B. Dec. 22, 2896, age 4
I think this may be Elsie and is written down incorrectly.

The occupations for the males are miners and all the children are born in Newfoundland

Page 4, family 25, line 1 and 2
Levi Milley, male, nephew, single, b. Aug. 17, 1880, age 20, miner
Amelia Milley, female, single, b. Oct 14, 1870, age 21

You can view the original documents at the above site through split screen. Most of the information fits the people you are searching and gives you the connection you have been seeking. When you look at the marriage certificates for Lucy and Elsie it all fits.
You can find a lot more information at novascotiagenealogy.com for the family members listed above.

Hope this helps, Val

This information from
www.mininghistory.ns.ca and also from Nova Scotia Archives and REcords Management, Men in the Mines, Nova Scotia Mine Fatalities

John Milley, death, February 15, 1900, Springhill No. 3 mine, cause of death isn't given.

Have you checked out Newfoundland Genealogy to try and track the family in Newfoundland. Newfoundlland bmd's and census information is separate from that off Canada. I have never searched for anything in NFLD so don't know what is available but look for a gen web site for the area of Western Bay and see what pops up.

In the 1911 census Stewart and his wife Emily and family are in MacLeod Alberta, his age is wrong but it is the right family. William H. Milley is also in MacLeod.
Under Soldiers of the First World War:
William Henry Milley
living in Victoria Barracks, Calgary, listed his brother Stewart as his next of kin on his attestation papers, Reg. # 1286947

Marriage 13 June 1904
Stewart Milley, age 23, miner, Conception Bay, Nfld., father John mother Eliza Ann
Emily Pike, age 21, born Carbonnear, Nfld.

I also checked canada 411 and there are still many Milley and Whalen families living in Western Bay.

I googled Newfoundland Gen Web, Conception Bay Nfld and came up with the following site

Found this information on the gen web site I previously posted

107-1
20 Nov. 1874

Eliza Whalen, Bradley's Cove

Extra Witness: Absolem Milley,
PR date 18 Nov. 1874

108-6
23 Dec. 1874
John Milley, fisher, Western Bay

Extra Witnesses: Thomas Milley, Mark Puddester

106-8
17 Nov. 1874

Extra Witnesses: John Kennedy, John Gillingham

101-6
2 Dec. 1872
Thomas Milley, fisher, Western Bay
Maria Puddester, Northern Bay
Witnesses: John Milley, John Whalen

I am sending this information because I didn't find a marriage for John Milley and Naomi Noseworthy. the information that I did find makes me think that Naomi was originally a Whalen. This information would lead me to think that the John married to eliza whalen could be the one who married Naomi as she was a Whalen and it would not be unusual for related widows with children to marry. The name Noseworthy is around the St. John's area and not Western Bay or Conception Bay north.
When looking at any of the original transcripts it is important to remember that many words were written as they sounded so a lot of discrepancies will arise as to names and dates and there will be lots of spelling errors.
When looking for info on Western Bay look to Conception Bay North
I hope this helps with your search and is the type of information you were looking for.
