Husband of M.A. Arnold

The Arnold Family has had this Confederate marker taken down. Alton Arnold always maintained that his grandfather's name was James and not Jurdon. There was a Jurdon Arnold who married a Martha, he got a land grant in Upshur County, Texas and was from Alabama. If you follow the census records for James and Martha you will find them with their children.

James Benjamin Arnold was also in the Civil War and Martha got a widows pension.
