* A message from Harold and Linda Peper about George M Dobson above is partially quoted here. " have been searching for information on the ARNOLD family of Cass Co, MO and found your information. Your pages are very beautiful and well done. I noticed a George DOBSON, married to an Arnold and the son of J Frank Dobson and Sarah Elizabeth DAVIS. I think this George Dobson might have married Ada Arnold, daughter of John Robert Arnold and Catherine Peters who came to Cass Co. MO from Morgan Co, IL about 1870. From somewhere I have Ada's death date as April, 1913. Since George did not die until 1943 he may have married again. George Dobson and Ada Arnold's children were Johnnie Kathryn born about 1913 and Pauline M Dobson. Johnnie Kathryn married Harold Spradling and Pauline M. married someone named Jorgenson. This family was a mystery to me for many years, not knowing how we were related.. I still don't have much information as the only person I have been able to contacted do not seem interested. When John Robert Arnold was very young his father James Arnold died in Morgan Co. James was a brother of my g-grandfather, Thomas Arnold and they were sons of John Arnold. John was the son of another Thomas Arnold and Frances (Frankie) Jennings, daughter of Robert Jennings and Rachel Patterson of Prince Edward Co, VA. so we also have a Jennings connection. Just thought I would send you this. Thanks Linda Peper, Illinois"
