Arie Ella Day Goolsby
Birth: Jan., 1879
Union County
Mississippi, USA
Death: Jan., 1920

Gravesite unknown, This memorial is connected to this cemetery because there are plans to place a stone in her memory beside Ben.

Arie Ella Day was born to Martha nee' Perry Day and Hiram Day in January of 1879. She married Ben P Goolsby the 13th of January, 1907.

They had 4 children Ardie, Lonnie, Flossie, and Marie, before moving to Lake City, Arkansas to farm. In 1919, she became sick with the Spanish Flu or sometimes called the Second Wave of the Flu of 1918. This second wave was a deadlier mutation of the same flu. She did not survive and Ben being very poor took his children back to north Mississippi to get help in caring for them.

It is thought Arie might be buried in an unmarked grave in Craighead County Arkansas. This was not unusual at all for this time and the number of deaths due to flus.
