Arthur Robison Pearson, the subject of this sketch, was born in Hillsborough, Albert county, New Brunswick, Dominion of Canada, on October 26, 1855. Came to Kansas in 1871. Was united in marriage to Miss Laura Block Dec. 22, 1887. Of this union there were born 7 children, all of whom are living and are present. A brother, of Kansas City, and a sister were also present.

About one year ago Mr. Pearson had a severe attack of the grip and never seemed to entirely recover from its effects, altho, for three weeks before his death he seemed to be better than usual, and appeared to be making some permanent improvement, and on Tuesday morning, if any difference, was still better, doing considerable work in the garden, and appeared to relish his food; but shortly after dinner he complained of a pain in his left side and fainted away, he was assisted to the lounge and two physicians were called, but he was past help, and in a little while he was gone. He was aged 55 years, 6 months and 8 days.

Funeral services were held at the home conducted by Rev. Mayor, of the M.E. church, after which interment was made in the White City cemetery.
