I discovered a strange connection with Jemima Cox Wheat on the following site which identifies other spouses before Arthur. http://www.tilleyenterprises.com/ged-H-tree/ghtout/gp189.htm
I too am trying to trace Arthur's whereabouts. I did find a 'Gee' connection but that is in the 1891 census of an Arthur Henshaw whose birth place is Gee (strange coincidence). Will contact you further if I find anything, would you do the same please?
Thanks a lot
