THE PASSING OF ELD DANIEL B ARNOLD

(FROM GOSPEL MESSENGER)

 

ABOUT ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO A GERMAN FAMILY OF FIVE, BY THE NAME OF ARNOLD, LEFT FREDERICK MD AND LOCATED NEAR WHAT IS NOW KNOWN AS BURLINGTON WV, ON BEAVER RUN, MINERAL CO.

THERE WERE THREE BROTHERS, SAMUEL, ZECHARIAH AND DANIEL, AND TWO SISTERS, CATHARINE AND CHARITY.  THE ABOVE NAMED ZACHARIAH HAD SEVEN SONS AND TWO DAUGHTERS.  OF THESE SONS, BENJAMIN A MINISTER OF THE CHURCH OF THE BRETHREN, WAS THE FATHER OF THE SUBJECT OF OUR SKETCH.  THE MOTHER OF OUR BELOVED BROTHER WAS A DESCENDANT OF THE ABOVE NAMED DANIEL ARNOLD.

ELDER DANIEL B ARNOLD WAS BORN SEPT 7, 1842, AND DIED JUNE 17, 1914, AGED 27 YEARS, 7 MONTHS AND 10 DAYS.

OUR BELOVED BROTHER SELECTED SISTER MARY B LUDWIG AS HIS LIFE COMPANION.  THEY WERE MARRIED ABOUT 1864.  THIS UNION WAS BLESSED WITH TWO SONS AND ONE DAUGHTER.  ELD CHAS E, DECEASED IS THE PRESENT BUSINESS MANAGER OF THE BRETHREN PUBLISHING HOUSE.  MINNIE IS THE WIFE OF BRO HURLEY MILLER, RESIDING NEAR OAKLAND MD.  THE COMPANION, TWO CHILDREN AND SIX GRANDCHILDREN ARE LEFT TO MOURN THEIR LOSS.

BRO ARNOLD CAST HIS LOT WITH THE BRETHREN WHEN ABOUT 22 YEARS OF AGE.  HE WAS ELECTED TO THE MINISTRY, ABOUT 4 YEARS LATER, AND ORDAINED ABOUT 1874.  HE ALSO RAISED A DAUGHTER NOT OF HIS OWN FAMILY.  SOON AFTER HER MARRIAGE, HOWEVER, HER HUSBAND DIED, AND SHE RETURNED TO THE OLD HOME WITH HER ORPHAN CHILD, WHERE SHE REMAINED UNTIL BRO ARNOLD’S DEATH.

BRO WAS A VERY BUSY MAN, BUT NEVER TOO BUSY TO LEAVE ALL, AND TRAVEL FAR AND NEAR IN DOING CHURCH WORK.  IT IS RELATED THAT HE, WITH HIS FAVORITE HORSE, CELIM (WHICH SERVED HIM FOR 25 YEARS) TRAVELED WELL ON TO 60,000 MILES, OR FAR ENOUGH TO ENCIRCLE THE GLOBE NEARLY TOW AND ONE-HALF TIMES.

HE WAS ALSO A VERY USEFUL MAN AS A COUNSELOR, AND WAS USED BY BOTH HIS HOME DISTRICT AND THE GEN BROTHERHOOD ON COMMITTEE WORK.  HE SERVED ON STANDING COMMITTEE EIGHT TIMES.

NO RECORD HAS BEEN KEPT OF HIS LABORS FOR THE CHURCH.  HE WAS MUCH SOUGHT FOR IN MINERAL, HAMPSHIRE, GRANT AND HARDY COUNTIES, TO OFFICIATE AT BURIALS AND TO PREACH FUNERALS, BECAUSE OF HIS PECULIAR FITNESS IN BEING ABLE TO GIVE WORDS OF COMFORT.

FAR AND NEAR HE WAS CALLED TO OFFICIATE AT THE HYMENEAL ALTAR, NO DOUBT BECAUSE OF HIS JOYOUS DISPOSITION.  HE BAPTIZED MAY PEOPLE IN HIS CHURCH WORK.

HE HAD MUCH FAITH IN THE ANOINTING, AND WAS ANOINTED ABOUT 2 WEEKS BEFORE HIS DEATH.  RECOVERING FROM THE DISEASE WITH WHICH HE HAD BEEN AFFLICTED, HE WAS THEN ATTACKED BY ANOTHER.  HE WAS AGAIN ANOINTED – THIS BEING ONLY ABOUT 24 HOURS BEFORE HIS DEATH.

BRO ARNOLD WAS A MAN OF MORE THAN ORDINARY FAITH IN PRAYER.  ONCE, ON HIS PREACHING TOURS, HE GOT IN COMPANY WITH A MAN WHO COMPLAINED ABOUT THE DRY WEATHER.  BRO ARNOLD INQUIRED IF HE HAD PRAYED FOR RAIN, BUT WAS TOLD HE HAD NOT DONE SO.  BRO ARNOLD SUGGESTED THAT THEY KNEEL BY THE ROADSIDE AND PRAY FOR RAIN.  THEY THEN, AFTER PRAYER, STARTED ON TOWARD THE PLACE OF PREACHING. SOON THE CLOUDS BEGAN TO ROLL UP.  THE HURRIED ON, BUT BEFORE THEY GOT TO THE PLACE OF PREACHING THEY WERE THOROUGHLY DRENCHED WITH RAIN.

OUR BROTHER HELPED TO ORGANIZE AND SHEPHERD A NUMBER OF CHURCHES.  PART OF HIS LIFE HE WAS BURDENED WITH INDEBTEDNESS BUT INDUSTRY AND PERSEVERANCE PREVAILED AND AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH HE HAD CONSIDERABLE PROPERTY.  A FEW YEARS AGO, HE SOLD HIS PROPERTY ON BEAVER RUN AND MOVED IN WITH HIS DAUGHTER, IN THE BOUNDS OF THE GERMAN SETTLEMENT CONGREGATION.  LATER HE BOUGHT PROPERTY IN EGLON WV, AND MOVED THERE LAST WINTER, HOPING TO SPEND HIS LATTER DAYS IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE CHURCH AND SURROUND BY HIS BRETHREN.

A FEW WEEKS AGO, HE STARTED A DISTANCE OF NEARLY 50 MILES, WITH HORSE AND BUGGY, TO HOLD A SERIES OF MEETINGS, BUT ON THE WAY HE WAS TAKEN SICK WITH LOCKED BOWELS.  HE LAY TWO WEEKS, BUT RALLIED SUFFICIENTLY TO RETURN HOME.  HE ATTENDED CHURCH ON FRI EVENING, WENT OT MARKET ON SAT, AND ATTENDED CHURCH ON SUN MORNING AND ON SUN EVENING.  HE TOOK PNEUMONIA FEVER THE SAME NIGHT AND FELL ASLEEP IN JESUS ON WED MORNING.

THE FOLLOWING SUN HE WAS TAKEN TO THE MAPLE SPRING CHURCH WHERE NEARLY ONE THOUSAND PEOPLE ATTENDED THE FUNERAL SERVICES, IN CHARGE OF BRO EMRA T FIKE, ASSISTED BY ELDERS I W ABERNATHY, JONAS FIKE AND B W SMITH.  TEXT: JOHN 14: 1-4.  SIX ELDERS ACTED AS PALL-BEARERS. THE BODY WAS INTERRED BESIDE THE REMAINS OF ELD SAM A FIKE IN THE MAPLE SPRING CEMETERY, JUN 21, 1914.

BRO ARNOLD HAD THREE BROTHERS WHO SURVIVE HIM.  MICHAEL AND TAYLOR, OF CERRO GORDO ILL, AND ELD GEO S OF BURLINGTON WV.  HE ALSO HAD ONE HALF SISTER, MRS FRANKLIN OF MISSOURI.
