E S J Argus
On a recent trip to Japan I visited the Yokohama War Cemetery
and took photos of the headstone of Edgar Samuel John
Argus (1916 - 1945). The photo can be seen or
downloaded by going to "Photo Gallery - Thomas Argus - Samuel
Argus". I have other photos of the cemetery (a very beautiful
and peaceful place) if anyone is interested please email the
Webmaster for copies. Frank Argus

Are you related to the Argus family?
If you live in Australia or New Zealand and your surname
is ARGUS, or you are a descendant of someone whose name is
Argus, then you are most likely to have descended from either
of the brothers Thomas Argus or John Argus.
Thomas and John Argus and their families migrated to
Australia in the 1840's from Cornwall in England and
established the family in Australia with Ernest Edward Argus,
a grandson of Thomas, moving to
in 1901 and establishing the
branch of the family tree.
