It looks as if you may be new to this type of research so I am offering broad hints. I tried another spelling and found quite a bit. [Since I am not searching this family, I am not in a position to evaluate the information.] Suggest that you search Arthur Soucie. There are several interconnected researchers on Rootsweb.com who have their lines available. You can contact these contributors through Rootsweb/Ancestry. These possible cousins can help you sharing what they have and guiding you in your own research. You could start there and fill in some of the information that is similar to your own. Use what you find as CLUES and not evidence until you have found the documentation. There is a list for Soucy. There are boards for Soucie and Soucy and some similar names. If you don't already know some of the variant spellings for the surname, you will learn more there. The Rootsweb trees will show possible links on Ancestry.com.(The little green leaf may show even if without a subscription.) You can SEARCH both for free. To read the answers on Ancestry you will need a subscription of your own or one through a repository such as a public library or a genealogy society library. Some Family History Centers have recently added Ancestry.com access (after several years without). You will see census records, social security death records(free), draft records, and more. Ancestry cannot be remotely accessed from home through a library subscription.
From the census records you can learn the names of additonal family members in the household and years or month year of birth. Next April the 1940 US Census will be available from National Archives. Numerous libraries also have subscriptions to Heritage Quest online. This can be accessed from home as well through the libraries which have it. You can check your library's participation by going to its website and looking for genealogy resources or online subscriptions. You will learn which branch has the subscription if the system is subscribes. You will see is Heritage Quest is available. Sometimes you may have difficulty with a faint image on Ancestry often due to the quality of the original. Ancestry continually works to improve them as much as possible. One for your Arthur is faint. On Heritage Quest there is a feature to invert the image and make it white on black. Suggest that you try it.
www.findagrave has user contributors of cemetery information. I looked to it for Soucie in Nebraska and found your Arthur and Rose with photos of their markers. In their cases only the years of their births and deaths are given. Some contributors post additional info including names of family, obituaries, and even photos. You can learn the name and location of the cemetery. You can search by cemetery and by name of the individual. When there is no cemetery known some may have posted there to a "virtual cemetery." Don't forget to look for other Nebraska sites. Try "Franklin County Nebraska Genealogy." Hope this launches your work.
