Thank you. One thing: Bloomer Arnold is not the same person as Gilbert L. Arnold. Bloomer is the son of Garret and Mary Arnold. He did marry Ellen Fish in De Kalb County, 29 October, 1863. He bought land alongside that of his mother in Pigeon Grove, Iroquois County. He and Ellen had four children: Lillian, Mary, Harry, and Garret. Bloomer Arnold died 31 January, 1877. Ellen applied for his Civil War veteran's pension.(Organization Index to Pension Files of Veterans Who Served Between 1861 and 1900.
