From Tales & Trails of Bailey County, the First 70 Years, Taylor Publishing Co, Dallas, TX 1988

Lonnie and Dana Ragsdale Arnold moved from Dickens County to Baileyboro, Bailey County on January 1, 1933. They were accompanied by their three children Helen, June, and Mary. Due to the depression and a drop in the cotton market, they had lost their farm in Dickens County. Dana had a brother, Luther Ragsdale, who lived in Bailey County. He said since Lonnie and Dana were young, they should come to Bailey County and grow with a new county which he thought had a great future.
The L. L. Arnold family lived near Spur in the Duck Creek Community. Mr. Arnold was on the school board.
Dana Ragsdale applied for a position in the Duck Creek School where she met Lonnie Arnold, the son of Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Arnold. They enjoyed horseback riding, making pictures, going to country dances, pie suppers, and many other activities. They were married in Spur December 23, 1923.
After moving to Bailey County in 1933, they had two more children, Beverley Kay and Neil Ray who were twins born July 6, 1936.
In 1945 the Arnolds moved to a farm they had bought one mile west of Needmore where they have lived ever since.
Lonnie passed away April 20, 1961. Neil Ray was in poor health for several years and died March 23, 1978. Dana still lives on this home place where she raised her family. (Story by Dana Ragsdale Arnold)
