Grandpa Arnolds Bib Overalls

He was indeed a tall man, about 6' 4". His Father, Nathan was very tall too according to Etta Arnold, daughter of Ernst. His brother Ernst was always known as "Big Boy Arnold" and his uncle that was murdered in the Arnold-Norton shootout was called " Big Jim Arnold." Mom kept her Dad's Bibbies, Pay Day brand, union made for J C Penny's after he was killed in a car wreck in 1952. She gave them to me before she moved from Kankakee many years ago. I'm posting this on Aunt Dorothy's 82nd birthday.
