Three years later, he with his family, went west for a short time and on returning located at Milford Junction, where for ten years he was proprietor of the hotel. In September, 1896, fire destroyed the hotel and they immediately removed to Goshen, where until about a year ago, Mr. Arnold was in the employ of the Indiana Railway Co. During the last year of his life he had been in failing health, which culminated in typhoid fever, which proved fatal. He has always been a kind husband and father, with the welfare of his family always at heart, but it was during the last days of his life that he came to true repentance (sic) and faith in Christ and received the sacrament of baptism and departed in peace, left the present life on Friday evening, Sept. 20th at 7 o'clock. He left to mourn his loss a wife and five children, Clarence L., Glennie P., Blanche V., Herbert F., and Wilma Joy, his father and mother, Mr and Mrs John Arnold, one brother.  [Unknown Newspaper, September 27 1901 Contributed by Peggy Thompson]
