Re: Arnold Jurdon born Alabama abt 1849
Glad to here from you again, Also on the Arnold's Jewell Arnold sister of Alton Arnold died.I think her last name is Chesser.I know Jim's mom and dad went to her funeral. What's funny is when Jim's dad called and said Jewell had died, Jim said she was just here (Jim's mom has a sister named Jewell too.) Jim didn't know he had a great aunt Jewell Arnold.He never met her. I asked Jim's mom about it and she said no he never met her.I think it is from living in a military family, since Jim and his brother's did not grow up in Texas. They only went back to Texas ever three or four years to visit Alton Arnold, who is Jim's grandfather, son of Richard Arnold. Also Myrtle Hamilton Arnold wife of Alton Arnold died in Feb 2,000.I would love to have pictures that you have.
I have some pictures too, of the Richard Arnoldson of James/Jurdon Arnold.I still have not figured out who Jurdon is. Know he came from AL to Texas and I guess his wife's name was Martha Also.
But I know we have the right family because Jim's grandfather told me, that Jurdon/James grave is the one his father took him too when he was young.
