I need help finding out who John Wesley Arnold's father was. John Wesely Arnold was born in 1836 in Waverly, VA. In 1850 he lived with a Issac Arnold, who was born in Mecklenburg VA in 1804, in Waverly, VA. Issac Arnold had a son Richard Watson Arnold. John Wesley Arnold and Richard Watson Arnold are not brothers, I am thinking cousins. Later in life John Wesley Arnold and Richard Watson Arnold live beside each other in Waverly, VA. Issac Arnold had several brothers but I can find no trail to point to which was John Wesley Arnold's father. I am not sure why he was living with Issac Arnold in 1850. John Wesley Arnold later married Augusta Maifield. Can anyone find a connection for me?
