William Henry Arnold Jr was the son of William Henry Arnold and his 2nd wife Sarah A. 'Sallie' Heath who married 19 Oct 1865 in Platte Co. MO. They had both lost their first spouses. At the time of their marriage Sarah A. Heath was Mrs. Isaac 'Jack' Babcock, her husband having died in 1859 leaving her with one small child, James W. Babcock. William Henry Arnold Sr had three daughters brought into the marriage from his first wife (name unknown.) They began married life in Platte Co MO and had three additional children:

The father of William Henry Arnold Jr died in Platte County MO Oct 1872 and once again widowed, Sarah A. (Heath) (Babcock) Arnold did not remarry. Land was sold up in Platte Co MO and she moved to Leavenworth, KS.

Rebecca Arnold, County of Platte, MO (child of 1st marriage)
William H. Arnold, County of Platte, MO (child of 2nd marriage to Sarah Heath)
Charles C. Arnold, County of Platte, MO (child of 2nd marriage to Sarah Heath)

The widow Sarah A. Arnold was pregnant at the time of William Henry Arnold Sr's death thus George M. Arnold born 1873 is not named above.
The document further states that William H. Arnold died without a will.

A Platte Co MO land transaction of record for this family was dated Nov 15, 1892. When Sarah A. Arnold, William H. Arnold, Charles C. Arnold, George W. Arnold sold land to George W. Babcock. On that date they sold for $1,000 the following piece of land: “80 acres out of the E 1/2 of the SW 1/4 of section 35, twp 52, range 35, said 50 acres being in the central part of said 80 acres and being all of the 80 acres except 15 acres off the north end of said 80 acres and 15 acres of the south end of same as will more fully appear by a plat filed and recorded in Book N, page 234 and 235 records of Probate Court of Platte Co. MO. This land sold for $1000 and gave the widow money to establish herself in Leavenworth, KS.

William H. Arnold SR was described as a genial, intelligent and energetic farmer and trader.
