Family notes for Arthur TINSLEY and May CLAYTON

May died later in 1912. In early 1913 Arthur emigrated to Canada. While the early death of his wife may have contributed to his idea to emigrate, there was a lot of unemployment in Bollington at that time and many Bollingtonians emigrated as a way of finding work. [Webmaster]
