ARNOLD, George

Mr. George Arnold, one of Mineral County's most successful farmers and a man who had been prominent in the public affairs of the county, died at his residence on the Patterson's Creek Pike, five miles south of Burlington, Saturday forenoon, March 2, 1912, aged 76 years and 14 days.  He was a son of the late Rev Joseph and Elizabeth Sloan Arnold and was born Feb 17, 1836. He was married Dec 16, 1868 to Miss Frances J Michael, daughter of John Michael, of near Greenland Gap. She survives him with three children, Silas M Arnold; chairman of the Republican County Committee, and Misses May and Annie Arnold, all at home. He had four brothers and one sister, of these only the sister, Mrs Annie Keim, of Salisburg Pa, and Rev Peter Arnold, the youngest brother who lives on an adjoining farm, are living.  The funeral services were conducted at the residence Mon forenoon, the sermon being preached by Rev B W Smith, and the body was buried in the family cemetery on the home farm about one hundred yards from where he was born and where he spent his entire life with the exception of about two years during which time he lived in Illinois.  Notwithstanding, the very inclement weather, a large congregation of friends and relatives, from far and near, were present to pay their respects to the memory of one whom they had loved
and honored in life. The pallbearers were: N G Keim, W H Keim, L S Keim, of Elkins; Dr P S Keim, of Elk Garden; J G Wright and R S Stimmel, of Burlington. Mr Karl Kreitzer, a great nephew, of Ellsworth, Ill attended the funeral.  Mr Arnold's life had been a very active one, he went early and late, was one of the most industrious farmers in our county and accumulated valuable property. Indeed, he inured his heath by over work and in the autumn of 1908, because of broken health, he went to Baltimore where an operation was performed in the Johns Hopkins Hospital, and from the effects of that operation he never recovered, though he was able to go about the premises until the day before his death. He abounded in hospitality, it was to him a delight to have his friends in his home. He was a man of good judgement and his advice was frequently sought by his neighbors. For six years he was a member of our County Court.

BEAVER RUN - Many of your readers will be shocked by the following news items on account of the tragic death of Jacob Arnold in Colorado. This item is taken from a letter from Eld. Jno Arnold, Linter, Ill.  Many of us will remember that Daniel T. Arnold, of Mo, made an extended visit here several years ago among friends and the old land marks. His son Jacob married near McPherson, Kan. and he and his wife settled in Col. The man, a near neighbor, who is unsuspected[sic] guilty of this awful crime, seemed always to be on good terms with Mr. Arnold till last fall when the neighbor wanted Mr. Arnold to help him thresh on Sunday. This, of course, was refused, and he became angry at Mr. Arnold and declared he would get even for this.  Since then several attempts had been made to burn out Mr. Arnold, going so far one time as to burn a hay stack and to leave other marks. So Mr. Arnold and his hired hand decided to watch and try to ascertain who was doing the mischief. On the morning of the fifteenth of January, a noise was heard outside the house at 2:30 and Mr. Arnold went out to see what it was and saw a man running from the house. He gave chase and caught the villain just as he was crossing the yard fence, where upon the man shot and Mr. Arnold returned to the house and said he was shot. His conditions was such that the physician had him sent to the hospital at Denver, where he died the next day at 2 pm. The remains were taken to McPherson for interment. He is survived by his wife and four children, ranging in age from seven years to three weeks.

Note: This one is a little confusing.  This is actually Mary Dieling d/o George and Eva Dieling(whatever sp). Joseph Smith was her mother's 3rd husband and looks like Mary used her step-father's name.  I don't know that her mother ever used the name Mary, but obits being what they are.............. 
On the 1870 census her name is Mary Dylin living in the Joseph Schmidt/Smith household.  According to census, she and Charles Arnold married about 1881.
