NotesIn 1907, Arthur O'Connor, 13, arrived at Quebec, Canada, in a group of children brought by the Smyly Homes of Dublin, Ireland.

Arthur was originally placed in the Smyly Home in Hespeler, Ontario, Canada. According to M. Kohli:

[The Smyly Home] opened a receiving home for children in town and placed them out mostly as farm labourers or domestics. His name was extracted from a journal kept by a local man who recorded the names of soldiers from Hespeler, Ontario (which is now part of Cambridge, Ontario). It is not know who created the book or why it was created. Some of the names [were] repeated, a few [were] left out, and some [were] there because they had a connection to Hespeler but may not have been living in the town at the time of the war."

The journal shows Arthur as being from the Coombe Boys during the war.
