Surnames: Arnold, Hursey
The only data we have is that William Demetrius Arnold and Madora (Hursey) Arnold lived on a plantation when their son, Murray Brickey Arnold was born in 1884 in Orleans Parish, New Orleans, Louisiana. As near as we can tell, they lived in that area (near River Ridge and Kenner) from a time after the Civil War until their deaths in 1899. Murray Brickey said they lived along the Mississippi River and he and some friends had a "clubhouse" on an Island (or strip of dry land in dry weather) in the River. Murray said he was home tutored and received a certificate of graduation from Notre Dame High School. Madora died in a Catholic Hospital. This is about all the information we have on my Grandfather William D. Arnold.

as Murray/Murrey was not born till 1893 and parents passed in late 1890's dos'nt help as there is no 1890 census. I have tried for Madora for earlier without success and, there are toooooo many William's - the middle name of Demetrius I cant find - hopefully someone with different records to access than I have will have more luck
