Exerpt from The Henry Arnold Papers Cataloged by Rick Stattler:
Henry Arnold (1756-1831) was the fifth of nine children of Benjamin Arnold (1722-1799) and Barbara (Rice) Arnold (1723-1814) of Warwick. He inherited a farm in Warwick, on the south side of the Pawtuxet River, in what became the village of Pontiac. There, he operated a tavern for many years, which according to the family genealogist "was one of the most celebrated public houses outside of the city of Providence until the Providence and New Haven Turnpike was built." He also dabbled in shipping, and was in a mercantile partnership with Henry Remington and Thomas Arnold in 1805. Circa 1810 he also seems to have been involved in the textile industry, as there are several accounts in his papers for yarn and other supplies. A June 23 1815 account with Christopher Hill describes Arnold's purchase of spindles, a loom ("Lomb"), wheels, hooks and other equipment. He also opened a saw and grist mill in conjunction with his brother Dutey Arnold. Henry Arnold married Zilpha Ralph (1762-1834) circa 1786. They had two children: David Ralph Arnold (1788-1862) and Zilpha Arnold (1805-1823)
