Death of Wales Arnold
(From Prescott Courier, May 24, 1913)
On Wednesday night last, the soul of Wales Arnold passed to the great beyond. He had been ill for a long time with rheumatism and with other ailments of old age. In the death of Wales Arnold this county loses one of her first settlers, deceased having come to this section in 1863. In the Verde Valley, where he followed the pursuit of farming for many years, he was among the first to take up land, and for half a century conducted himself as an exemplary citizen. No man was more highly respected in the community, or throughout the entire county. He was born in New Hampshire 76 years ago and came of that old stock of New Englanders whose word was a good as any man's bond. He joined the Union forces during the Civil war and when he arrived in this section was wearing a soldier's uniform, being one of a California company stationed at Fort Whipple. Being mustered out of service, he located in the Verde Valley. Two or three years ago he abandoned farming and sold the old homestead in the valley, coming to Prescott to reside. His remains will be placed at rest in the valley where he spent the best years of his life, respected by all, and where lie the remains of his wife.
