REV. ALBERT W. ARFORD, farmer and minister, was born in Ohio, July 31, 1847, and is a son of Jacob and Catharine (Bash) Arford. He remained with his parents until seventeen years of age, and at the age of eighteen entered the Mt. Morris College, at Mount Morris, Ill., and remained two terms, and in 1866 entered the Hartsville University, in Bartholomew County, Ind., and pursued the teachers' course of instruction for two years. At the age of twenty he began pedagoging, and continued at that occupation for eight years. He taught three years in Kansas (until 1875), when he returned to Indiana and assisted his father on the farm until 1878. He then began studying for the ministry, and in June of the same year was licensed to preach. In 1882 he was placed in charge of the Shoals Circuit, and now has charge of the Raglesville Circuit. He is an able minister, and is spoken very highly of as a Christian gentleman. October 6, 1869, he married Louisa Winklepleck, born May 7, 1854, in Ohio. She is a daughter of S. and B. Winklepleck. Mr. and Mrs. Arford are the parents of these children: Duna [sic] E., Edwin K., Frank W., Louis D., Mina [sic] M., Albert B. and Jacob Ray. In 1878 Mr. Arford purchased forty acres of land in Madison Township, where he has made his home. He now owns 120 acres of good land. In politics he is Republican, and cast his first vote for U. S. Grant. [From: History of Knox and Daviess Counties by: Goodspeed Publishing Company 1886].
