I found a John M. Arnold who married a Polly Ann Bratcher on March 14, 1859 in my notes.
My husbands Greatgrandmother was named Vitula Duvall and she married David A. Arnold in Ohio County, KY. Vitula was born April 16, 1857 in Arnold, KY. Vitula's father was Dr. Mark Whitaker Duvall, and her mother was Malinda Haines-Duvall.
This is found in the 1860/1870 Census in Ohio Co., KY. Our Vitula Duvall-Arnold was the postmaster in Arnold, KY and a midwife. I was told that the Arnold's were all related, also the town was named after them.
David A.Arnold was born May 1, 1851 and died Sept. 1, 1924 in Arnold, KY and is buried in the Arnold Cemetery, (a very small section.) As a matter of fact there are other Arnold's, Duvall's and others buried there. (Daugherty, Coy, Crabb, Evans, Colburn, Autry, Cotton, Cook and Casey).
I do not know if these people are of your line, but, they sure could be.
The Arnold Cemetery is located off the Arnold-Dextervill Rd., near the Western KY Parkway overhead bridge, Arnold, KY. The last time we were there it had brush and weed over 3 feet tall and all the stones were covered. I believe there was a small white little building also under the brush. It is next door to a Mrs. Daugherty farm. We passed her farm about 1/4 mile and on the left was a little gate and a road. The road went down to a log home where the groundskeeper lived. The Cemetery was right ontop of the hill on the side of the road(right)My husband made me stay in the car and he found the graves as he walked through the little gate and small old cemetery. Stones were not in very good shape he said, and some of the names were hard to read. He then proceeded to walk further around and there was a big and newer cemetery on the other side.
I do not know if you live near there but, it would be something to check out...We live in MI and took a special trip that day, oh,our Vitula was called Tillie.As for the Bratcher I have not found this in my husbands line
Let me know if there is any connection, sure would like to find some of the family.
