Birth: Jan. 3, 1927
Allegany County
Maryland, USA
Death: Nov. 7, 1939
Mineral County
West Virginia, USA

Arnold Bodkin was the son of John Ray Bodkin and Ruth Estelle Clark of McCoole, Allegany, Maryland. He was the 2nd child and only son of Ray and Ruth Bodkin. Unfortunately his life was cut tragically short when on, Monday, October 30th, his teachers refused to believe the seriousness of his stomach ache and told him to sit in the office and wait for the end of the day when the schoolbus would bring him back home. He was suffering an appendicitis and it eventually ruptured before arriving at Potomac Valley Hospital in Keyser, WV. He managed to hang on for a week, dying on November 7, 1939. He was 12 years old.

He was survived by his parents and sisters, Roberta, Melba Jean, and Clara Ruth.
