Nancy "Mannie" Arnold Forbes
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 28, 1883
Texas, USA
Death: May 18, 1987
Hidalgo County
Texas, USA

Nancy was the daughter of Oliver Perry & Abbigal (Winchester) Arnold.

Nancy had 11 sibling. In June 1900 3 were still single and living with Nancy and their father. Her mother had died before the census. The 3 were:

1. John A. b. Nov 1869
2. Bertie, b. Nov 1877
3. Fannie, b. Oct 1879

On 18 July 1916 in Clairmore, OK Nancy married Eugene Denver Forbes. The couple initially lived in Oklahoma and Kansas and in 1925 settled in Edinburg, Texas.

Nancy loved music and was a music teacher for many years.

They had three children:

1. Eugene Denver Forbes Jr. 21 Apr 1917 - 8 May 1917
2. Laura Jean Forbes, 26 Jun 1918 - 27 Oct 1945
m. Arthur Armstrong
3. William Arnold Armstrong 12 Oct 1923 - 6 Aug 1944

The tragedy of having all 3 children die so young certainly must have brought a lot of heart break to Nancy and Eugene.
