Arthur Henry Cunningham
Arthur Henry Cunningham
     Arthur Henry Cunningham was also known as Arthur Schulenberg although in his daughters death certificate he is shown as Arthur Schulenberg it appears he normally went by the name Arthur Cunningham later in life. He was also living in the same house of Edward Shulenberg in early 1910.2 Arthur Henry Cunningham, son of Maurice J. Cunningham and Katherine Head, was born on October 14, 1886 in St. Louis, Missouri.3,4 Conflicting evidence placed his birth on October 14, 1889 (Death Certificat and Record of Funeral from Ortmann Funeral Home however stated he was 68 years, 4 months, 23 days old which would be 1886) or August 1, 1896 (WWI Draft Card.)5,6,7

Arthur's father, Maurice, either left or died shortly after his birth and his mother married Edward Schulenburg who raised Arthur as his own.
