The Monuments to Two Arnold Children

With Thanks to Doug and Colleen Smith

The Parents of these Arnold Children.
Location Knight's Cemetery.

On the former farm of Doug and Coleen Smith, were two stone monuments to two Arnold Children. Since their location was not where it had been, Doug moved them into a building for safe keeping. Unfortunately the farm was destroyed, and nothing remains of the monuments now. There was a small field at the back of the old farm of about 7 acres, and Doug believes that the monuments were located there. We hope to find more about these kids in the future. Doug believes that they were buried in the 1840's approximately. We hope to have more information on this in the future. The parents of the two children were Christopher and Azenath Arnold and they rest today in the Knight Cemetery. This family had direct connections to the Arnold Family who owned the Arnold's Mill a short distance down river.

We do not know for certain how many burials there were in this cemetery or it's exact location.

We have been told that there was a direct connection between Huff's Side Road and the Scane Road in Howard located across the way. There is apparently debate on whether this was the location of a bridge or if that connection was by a ferry crossing the river.
