William E. Arnold, M.D.
1837-1923
Surgeon C.S.A.

W. E. Arnold, M.D., is a native of Autauga County, Ala., born November 14, 1838, and when he was two years of age his parents emigrated to Arkansas, locating in Nevada County (then Hempstead) where the father, who was a Methodist minister, engaged in farming, and at times preached the gospel. His parents, William B. and L. P. )Hardin) Arnold, raised a large family of children of whom our subject is the third to the youngest, and died in Nevada County, the father dying in 1848. The subject of this sketch was reared on a farm, attending the common schools of this county, and when twenty years of age began the study of medicine at the Atlanta (Ga.) Medical College, at which he graduated in 1861. He enlisted in Company A, First Arkansas Regiment, as a private, and was subsequently made assistant surgeon of the same regiment, in which capacity he served until the surrender. While in front of Atlanta, dressing a wound on the field, he was wounded by being struck by a piece of shell, and disabled for a short time. At the close of the war he returned to Prescott, and resumed his practice, and has since been a resident here, and has built up a large and lucrative practice. He was married in 1868 to Mary McCollum, by whom he has five children, viz: Ella, Pattie, Lottie, Robert and Clifton. Dr. Arnold is a member of the Masonic fraternity.
