Howard was the son of Bennett Arterberry and Caroline Hudson. He married first to Clara Hillsberry and second to Clara's sister Amanda "Mandy" Hillsberry. His full name was given on some records as "Barnch Howard Arterberry" but was called Howard. According to census records, he was born circa 1869-70 but later family history and his obituary had him much older than his age which was incorrect. His incorrect birth year of 1849 was also listed on his marker.

Barnch Howard Bennett Arterberry, one of the oldest residents of Oklahoma, has
died at Chickasaw at the age of 104. His life of more than a century spanned
careers as minister, railroad engineer, blacksmith, & farmer.

The pioneer was born in Quincy, Illinois, on February 14, 1849. He went to work
for a railroad there as a young man. He married Clara Hillsberry, who died
in1892. Mr Arterberry moved to Oklahoma about 1896 7 settled near Lebanon. He
married Mandy Hillsberry, sister of his first wife, & they moved into Western
Oklahoma in 1915. For 19 years, Mr Arterberry was a Church of Christ minister
preaching at Ada, Wynnewood, Madill, Pauls Valley, & Idabel. His second wife
died in 1946.

He is survived by 5 daughters, 7 sons, 22 grandchildren, 16 great-grand-children,
& a brother.

Obit from June Lowe who believes Barnch was born 1869 not 1849. He was the son
of Bennett & Caroline Hudson Arterberry
