4746Looking for Arnolds
- Apr 18, 2011Hi all,
I just know there are some of you who can make my
job a little easier. I have transcribed some historical
works by the late Emily Gertrude Arnold (12/10/1884 -
1/29/1935, Nathanael Greene Ch, DAR) who lived on the
Warwick line with East Greenwich. I transcribe and make
such texts available at the town library as I find them,
since they can't seem to be found anywhere else.
She was the daughter of Andrew J. and Laura (Brown)
Arnold. She was the granddaughter of Stephen A. and Ann
E. Smith (sic), and ?? father's line Arnold. I suspect
she was a descendant of William Arnold, who owned the
Arnold Tavern in East Greenwich during the Revolution.
Gertrude Arnold was the official historian for East
Greenwich's 250th birthday celebration in 1927. Oddly,
though pictures are published of just about everyone on
the committees for that event, Miss Arnold's picture is
not. She never married, but I would like to know if
there are any collateral line descendants who might have
a picture of her. These deceased town historians are
getting lost along with the histories they wrote.
Since we might be speaking of living individuals,
it's fine to contact me off-list.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
