Grandpa Arnold and Oscar Arthur

Oscar "Os" was a cousin to Grandma Arnold and friend of Grandpa. He has the tie. Mom talked her parents into letting her go down to Kentucky with her Uncle Ruben and Aunt Mary in 1933 to visit folks.  They went to this great big grey building and met with Os for a time. She told her Mom all about her trip and  how some men were wearing guns! Grandma Et told her "Well Lucille that was a prison."She then explained what she could to Mom. I'll never forget this story because she was telling me how she was transitioning from her innocent childhood. The prison was in Fankfort, the capitol. I don't know why he was there.
