Biographical information
I haven't been able to learn a huge amount about Arthur Horsey Weiss. He was a carpenter, and seemed to live a relatively quiet life. He married Annie Marshall in Orange in March 1889, and their first son Frederick was born in December of the same year. The family moved around country New South Wales for a number of years, but by the late 1890s the family had moved to Sydney, living first in Waterloo, and then settling in their home "Atherton" at 29 Regent St, Summer Hill.
