He was a vestry in St. Paul's Church for many years. Prominent in the local commercial world.

Served in Co. E, 2nd Battalion, Alabama Light Artillery and in Co. H, Confederate Guards Regiment, Louisiana Militia - Corporal, Confederate Army, Civil War

Born in Georgetown, D.C. Educated at Georgetown College. Embarked in business in Philadelphia while quite young, where he met and married Miss Sarah Shinn, April 24, 1851.

After a residence in Philadelphia, Georgetown, and Alexandria, Virginia, he moved his family to New Orleans in 1860, having been sent here as an agent of the late William Massey.

In July 1861 he joined the Confederate Guards, under Captain Pillsbury, and served until the fall of the city. Leaving New Orleans in 1863, he went to Mobile, Alabama and enlisted in Company E, Second Battalion, Alabama Light Artillery. He was ill in the hospital when the Federals passed Fort Morgan, and upon his recovery he was detailed to General Maury's headquarters, where he remained until Mobile was evacuated. He was then sent to Meridian with archives of office, and was paroled on May 11, 1865. Since the war he has been an active member of the Army of Tennessee, U.C.V.

With fortunes broken by war, he moved to Philadelphia where he remained 1866 - 1870. He then returned to New Orleans where he was retained as bookkeeper by the late T.A. Waterman, where he remained until 1874. Then Mr. Andry started the business he retained until six years ago when failing eyesight forced him to retire from active life and turn over the management to his son.

Survived by his faithful wife and four children - William T. Arny of New Orleans; Dr. H.V. Arny, a professor in the College of Pharmacy, Cleveland, Ohio; Elizabeth, the wife of F.C. Godbold, and Miss C. L. Arny, and six grandchildren.

Three weeks ago Dr. Arny was called home from Cleveland as he expected to be with his father through his last hours; but, as it unexpectedly happened, to be present at the death of his sister, Mrs. William T. Arny. This makes the second great bereavement that has befallen the family in the past three weeks.
