The Mystery

One of the boys standing looks like another photo I have with the name "L. Y. Arnold" written on the back. It was in an old album that belonged to the Long Family of Crawford and later, Floyd County, GA. I have found the Arnold name listed in the membership of some GA Primative Baptist Churches, but not L.Y. As one set my great-grandparents moved from GA to NE TX, I thought the Arnolds might have migrated too. Other names might be Davis, Jessup, or Long.

Could the "L.Y." be "L.V." instead? If so, there was a Levi Vineyard ARNOLD in Texas.

My ggg grandfather was Russel Arnold. He migrated from Panola county, MS to varous places in Texas--but settled in Wise county. One of his sons, a Wiley M. Arnold, served in the military out of Georgia. I'm not sure of what the tie to Georgia is, but I know one existed. I've copied your photo & data and am adding it to my files for future refernce. I believe there is problable a connection of some kind. Please feel free to contact me. brenda6209681 at [external link].
