    Notes 
    • HUGH M. ARNOLD, one of the leading citizens of Newnan, Coweta, Co., Ga., was born in November, 1842, his parents being James and Matilda (Ware) Arnold. His father was born in Wilkes county, in 1802, and was reared on a farm. The paternal grandfather of Hugh M. Arnold was a native of South Carolina, who came to Georgia before 1800, settling in the woods, in which there had never been a stick cut. Hugh M. Arnold was reared on a farm and attended school in an old log school-house with a stick chimney and a puncheon floor. For a short time he went to school in Newnan, but in 1861, when only eighteen years of age, enlisted in Company B, under Capt. R. L. Y. Long, remaining one year, at the expiration of which he re-enlisted, and after two years, returned home and engaged in farming, which occupation he still continues. Mr. Arnold was in the battles of Cotton Hills, Seven Pines and Loop Creek. In 1868 Mr. Arnold was united in marriage to Miss Mary Townsen, daughter of James and Sarah (Grantlin) Townson. To this union three children have been born: Brad, Mollie and Sallie. Mrs. Arnold was born in Upson county, Ga., and died in 1872, a member of the M. E. church. Three years later, Mr. Arnold married Fannie Sims, daughter of ]ohn D. Sims, to whom six children have been born: Fannie L., Eva, ]ohn, Alma H. M (deceased), Jennie C., and an infant. Mrs. Arnold was born and reared in Coweta county, and is a member of the Baptist, while Mr. Arnold is a member of the M. E. church. Mr. Arnold was formerly a member of the masonic order. He began life with very little, but has succeeded well, and besides owning a large farm, has one of the nicest residences in Newnan, where he and his family are among the leading and most respected citizens.

    Had the South in her border
    A hero to spare,
    Or a heart at her altar,
    Lo! its life's blood was there!
    And the black battle-grime
    Might never disguise
    The smile of the South
    On the lips and the eyes
    Of her barefooted boys!
