Carson, Arthur E. (Edward Russell Carson) (1888-1952)

Arthur E. Carson was a confectioner (or candy manufacturer). He lived at 1872 Georgia Street in 1917, and 1871 Georgia Street in 1919. He operated a confectionery at 1800 Georgia Street in 1919 and 1920.

It appears that he may also have been called Edward Russell Carson; if so, he was born on January 7, 1888, in Orillia, Ontario. His father was Edward Daniel Carson (about 1863-1895). His mother was Margaret Ann Johnston (born October 14, 1867, in Halton County, Ontario, and living in Halkett Bay, Gambier Island, British Columbia, in 1952).

Mrs. Carson and her sons arrived in Vancouver about 1910. The Carson family lived near the corner of Vine Street and Fourth Avenue throughout most of the 1910s and ran a confectionery during most of that period. In the late 1910s, Mrs. Carson became an assistant librarian at the Christian Science Reading Room.

On December 21, 1911, in Vancouver, Edward Russell Carson married Treva Calista Grant. She was born in South Dakota on May 22, 1890. Her father was Charles Herbert Grant; her mother was Allie Haines. Edward and Treva were later divorced, and Treva became a repatriated United States citizen in 1952.

Edward became a chef at a summer resort, and was living in Halkett Bay on Gambier Island, British Columbia, when he died in Vancouver on June 26, 1952.

Treva married a Mr. Walter, and she was living in San Leandro, Alameda, California, until she died on September 8, 1985.
