Jacob Arnold, who operates one of the best improved and most attractive farming properties in Buchanan county, is the owner of one hundred and twenty acres of land on
sections 27 and 28 and also has one hundred and sixty acres on section 21, Cono township.

His birth occurred in Du Page county, Illinois, on the 2nd of November, 1862, his parents being Jacob and Katherina (Kautz) Arnold, more extended mention of whom is made on
another page of this work.

Jacob Arnold, who was but two years of age when his parents established their home in Buchanan county, obtained his education here and remained at home until he had attained
the age of twenty-three years. At that time his father gave him eighty acres of land on section 27, Cono township, and he started out as an agriculturist on his own account,
operating the place for four or five years. On the expiration of that period he disposed of the property to his brother and purchased a tract of one hundred and twenty acres on sections 27 and 28, Cono township, which he has improved to a considerable extent and has
cultivated continuously since. At the time of his father's demise he came into possession of one hundred and sixty acres more by buying out some of the other heirs, the property lying in section 21. He cultivates the cereals best adapted to soil and climate and also
raises thoroughbred Durham cattle, meeting with excellent success in both branches of his business. He is a stockholder in the Farmers Land Company of Waterloo, Iowa, and in the Exchange State Bank of Walker.

On the 19th of June, 1889, Mr. Arnold was united in marriage to Miss Josephine Uthe, a daughter of Christopher and Christina (Bushnell) Uthe, both of whom were natives of
Germany. The father was one of the king's musicians in that country. He emigrated to the United States in 1854 and first located on a farm near Cleveland, Ohio, while
subsequently he came to Buchanan county, Iowa, purchasing and improving a tract of land in Cono township which he cultivated during the remainder of his life. His demise
occurred on the 27th of April, 1876, and he is survived by his widow, who has now reached the age of eighty-eight years and makes her home with our subject.

Mr. and Mrs. Arnold have three children, namely: Emery J. and Clara E., who are twenty-four and twenty-one years of age respectively; and Herbert J., eight years old.

Politically Mr. Arnold is a democrat, believing firmly in the principles of that party. His religious faith is that of the Presbyterian church, while fraternally he is
identified with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows at Walker. The period of his residence in this county covers a half century and his record is that of one of its
representative agriculturists and public-spirited and prosperous citizens.
