Biography of William Arnold

WILLIAM ARNOLD. This gentleman is one of the thrifty and energetic farmers for which Searcy County, Arkansas. has become well known, and in the conduct of his affairs has shown good judgment and business foresight. He was born in Wabash County, Illinois, September 18, 1822, a son of Jacob and Rebecca (Thompson) Arnold, natives of Kentucky, from which State they removed with their parents to Illinois, when that was a new country. There they married and made their home until 1838, when they started for Texas, but upon reaching Ft. Smith, Arkansas, became discouraged by reports from the Lone Star State, and the next spring started back to Illinois, with the intention of locating on Crowley’s Ridge, but on reaching what is now Searcy County, Arkansas, was so well pleased with the outlook here that he decided to locate, and he at once “pitched his tent” at the mouth of Bear Creek. Here he made his home until his death eight years later, but during this time he managed to greatly improve his place in many ways. He was a man of great energy and push, was a great lover of hunting and all athletic sports and was a soldier of the Black Hawk War.

Biography of Willis Arnold

Willis Arnold, proprietor of a sawmill at Kendrick, is a native of Ohio, his birth having occurred in Kenton, that state, April 29, 1862. His father, Samuel Arnold, was born in Trumbull County, Ohio, and after the inauguration of the civil war entered the service of the Union. He was wounded and held as a prisoner in Andersonville, and after great suffering he died from the effects of his wounds in 1866. Our subject was born when his father was at the front and was thus deprived of his care at a very early age. He was educated at Big Rapids, Michigan, and began to earn his own living when fifteen years of age. From that time he has been dependent upon his own exertions, and is therefore deserving of great credit for the success which he has achieved in life. He learned the carpenter’s trade, which he followed in northern Michigan for some time, and in 1880 he removed to Dakota. His sojourn in the latter state was followed by a period of residence in Montana, where he was engaged in the manufacture of lumber and in contract work. About the time of the establishment of Kendrick he came here, and in 1897 erected the sawmill which he has since operated. The yellow pine logs for the mill are procured six miles above the town and floated down...

Arnold has led an active and diversified career, and although not yet forty-one years of age has crowded into his life more experiences than the ordinary man sees in an entire lifetime. From gold mining in Colorado to chasing the insurgents in the Philippines is a long call, but unlike many men whose activities have led them to out-of-the-way-places, Mr. Arnold has been constantly advancing, and each new experience, each new employment, has brought him a little bit further ahead toward the goal of success. In his present capacity, which he has filled for some five years, he is one of the most efficient and popular officials in the state. Mr. Arnold is a native of Saxony, born in the City of Dresden, in 1877, a son of Gustave and Ernestine (Zeuner) Arnold. In the old country the family belonged to the social democrats, and Friedrich Arnold, the grandfather of Mr. Arnold, was one of its pioneer leaders during the party’s early struggle for recognition of its principles of more liberal government.
