Grandpa and Gramma Arnold were killed in an accident near Lincoln, IL 8 Nov 1952. They were on a trip to see Aunt Gertie and her family near St Louis when a pickup truck collided with them. Dora, Dorothy, Mardene and Vickie were injured and spent as long as 9 months in the hospital (Dora). Not long before the trip he had a tooth pulled and it's been in his coin purse that I've had for decades. They had sold their furniture and were preparing to move back to Somerset, Kentucky where they had been raised, met, married, and had five kids before moving to a farm in Milkes Grove Township, Iroquois County, IL in the 1920's. My wife's family lived on a farm just about two miles east in the 1950's. Uncle Welty lived on a nearby farm in this same time period. Uncle Sherwoods family farmed about 4 or 5 miles NW. And the story goes on.
