Shared note
Eighteen-year-old John A Arnold and 20-year-old [sic] Victoria Elkins [transcribed Elkin] obtained their marriage license on 11 Mar 1879. John had to have a "consent of parent" document filed with the clerk, as he was underage. They were married on 16 Mar 1879 by Boaz Ford, minister of the United Church. The word Gospel has been crossed out. In the 1880 US Federal Census for Upper Crawford, Arkansas, 19-year-old Kansas-born blacksmith John and his 20-year-old Arkansas-born wife Victora [sic Victoria] [Elkins] Arnold have in their household John's niece, 10-year-old Arkansas-born Margaret Arnold. John can neither read nor write. John's parents were born in Ohio, Victoria's father was born in Virginia and her mother in Arkansas, Margaret's parents were born in Arkansas. John had died or deserted Victoria and Daisy by 1885 as he is not in the Arnold household in Olympia, Thurston, Washington and cannot be found elsewhere.
