Here’s the information you requested:

John Arnold 42 m farmer Ohio
Mrs. R. Arnold 38 f Ohio

I took the liberty to review the 1870 census. And I believe the following three families are all related:

I am looking for census information on the family of John and Rachael (Brown) Arnold. Their son, Charles A., was my great grandfather. John and Rachael (Rachael's name could be spelled Rachel or Rachall) came from Ohio, but Charles was born in Lee, Brown, Illinois abt. 1852. He married my great grandmother in Minnesota in 1884.
I see John and Rachael (Rachel) listed in the 1850 and 1870 (Charles is listed here) Censuses, but can't confirm they are the same family. I am hoping the 1860 census will give a bit more to work with.
Also, could you direct me to information on the G.A.R.? Charles A. Arnold was buried in Maine Prairie Minnesota with a G.A.R. marker, but he must have been awfully young to have actually served in the Civil War. Do you know if he would have received a marker on behalf of a relative OR if he had served as a bugle boy? According to family information a cousin of mine has a sword used in the Civil War, so I believe there is some solid connection somewhere.
Thank you VERY much in advance for your assistance. If there are others who are researching the Arnold Family I would be happy to share the information I have on Charles from 1884 on.
