Hi Rhoda, Let me start by saying I am not related to the Arney's.Just trying to help you out if I can. The California Death Index lists: Emerson Elwood Arney DOB 6/19/1925, MMN: Woodsmall, BP: Indiana, Place Death: San Diego Co., Ca. DOD 11/2/1993 SSN: 317-26-3194. Katherine Louise Arney, DOB 3/20/1923, MMN: Hensley, Fathers Last Name: Johnson, BP: Indiana, Place Death: San Diego, Co., Ca. DOD: 7/12/1995 SSN: 312/12/6021.
There was no obituary for either person in the San Diego Union newspaper.Since Emerson died in Chula Vista I also checked the C.V. Star News and there was no obituary for him there either. At the courthouse in San Diego I looked at Emerso's death certificate and the information on it follows: Cert # 3 9337015059Emerson Ellwood Arney DOB 6/19/1925, BP; Indiana, DOD: 11/2/1993, Place: San Diego Co., Ca.

Father's Name: William Arney, BP: Indiana, Mother: Alma Woodsmall, BP: Indiana Informant: Severina Arney: Wife Address: 275 Orange Ave. #54, Chula Vista, Ca. Surviving spouse: Severina Rojano
Note: 275 Orange Ave is the address of Palms Mobile Home Park.I called the office this morning and there are no Arney's living there now.The telephone # is (619) 422-1972 if you want to contact them further. Hope this info helps somewhat. Pat Informant
