1920 Bill Arnold with Beans x


Researched and compiled by Faye Bell (SLC) 2013

Compiled from Public Records and U.S. Census


            William (Bill?) Arnold was born on the 27 January 1909 in Ten Sleep, WY to Bert and Mabel Arnold.  When he was born he had two older sisters—Zula and Effie Arnold.  In 1920 he was listed on the U.S. 1920 Census with a Brother Glen B and a Sister Altha and on the 1930 Federal Census he was 21 and living with his parents in Ten Sleep.  Before the 1940 report was taken, William Arnold was living with his wife Georgia Garoutte, but still in Ten Sleep, WY.  According to military records there is a William Arnold who enlisted on the 22 Apr 1941 and was released from the Army on 25 December 1945.  (There is some doubt here about this identity.) However, Georgia Arnold is listed in the 1940’s directory at Basin, WY and the couple lived in Basin until the decease of both of them ca 2003.  Birth, Marriage and Death records indicate William T Arnold was born on 27 Jan 1909 and died on the 16 Dec 2003, Basin, Big Horn, Wyoming. 



Memories:  I have scant memories of William T Arnold, but knowing of his upbringing and the standards of the Arnold family, I can only say ‘well reared”, ‘well lived’ and in harmony with the laws of the land.  fb
