The story goes that back in the late 1920s or early 1930s a band of gypsies camped across the road from the Ben Arnold cemetery. They stayed for several weeks, and their children even enrolled and attended the local Ben Arnold school. One morning the gypsies were gone, and the townspeople noticed someone had been buried in the Ben Arnold cemetery a ways off from the other graves. It is believed that the gypsies only stayed for as long as they did because someone in their camp was sick. However, the townspeople of Ben Arnold to this day do not know if it was a child or an adult that was buried in the cemetery. A couple of the local men put up a small cross with the word "Gypsy" as a marker for the grave.
