Harvey Doolin Arnold, Sr
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 5, 1895
Palo Pinto County
Texas, USA
Death: Mar. 13, 1950
Knox County
Texas, USA

H. D. Arnold, Sr., became superintendent of the Goree School District April 1, 1920, and served in that position for thirty years until his death. He was an active member of his church, the Masonic Order, and the Chamber of Commerce. The Goree Independent School District remained segregated until 1962, twelve years after his tenure ended.

In 1937 in Goree, Knox County, Texas, he completed a brief, unpublished history of that branch of the Arnold family that had migrated from Virginia to Kentucky and Texas, including brief histories of the associated Rucker, Pearce and Young, Brown, and Donelson families. His son Charles William Arnold, Sr., and Charles's wife Mary Alice Cone Arnold shared those unpublished histories and other documents with their extended family.

(The middle name "Doolin" given him at birth should have been "Dooley," to reflect the last name of a direct ancestor of his father. Elizabeth "Betsy" Dooley (1757-1849) married Arabia Jackson Brown, Sr. (1755-1844).)
