Re: Gamaliel Arnold, b. 1797 in VT--Bible Records
I spent some time yesterday evening reading all of the Arnold messages.Whew.Did see your reference to the six fingers & toes idea.Very interesting.Gamaliel,Jr. had a son, Philander, who emigrated to California in 1853.Several generations later, I showed up.
I am fortunate to have had an uncle, Charles E. Arnold of San Diego who in the late 1940s produced a family history. A few years before, he had sold the Arnold Realty Company in San Diego, founded in 1869 by Cyrus Arnold, a son of Philander.Uncle Charlie believed that our Gamaliel was a soldier and with Wolfe at Quebec.I will look around for that account and send it on.It may help with your research.By the way, your research about Duxbury confirmed the dates, etc., that Uncle Charlie found in the 1940s.
Best wishes, Jim Arnold
