      !SOURCE: Email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 15 Dec 2004. Norma writes:
      I have a slight problem with Isaac/Israel Arnold {29470} being born in 1792, living until 2 Nov 1864--those dates belong to Israel Arnold (Jr.){27686}--but getting married in 1775. I think he is: ARNOLD, ISRAEL (SERGT) 1754 - 1840 (Friends Burial Ground, Smithfield Ave., Lincoln, RI) who is in my database as the son of Joshua and Amie (Arnold) Arnold. Israel & Deborah's marriage (recorded in Arnold's VRs 3:6:12 Smithfield 1:229) states that Izrael is the son of Joshua and that Deborah Olney {16187} is the daughter of Jeremiah Olney (who may be Jeremiah {9768} whose mother was Deborah Smith, for whom he named his daughter). Jeremiah's father Obadiah Olney {16180} named his nine children (living and dead) in his will, but no dau. Deborah is mentioned. Obadiah and Deborah Smith were married November 09, 1734; their son Jeremiah was born March 06, 1735, and Deborah died shortly afterwards on April 13, 1735 (all dates from Arnold's VRs). You might want to "tweak" Jeremiah's DOB to make him look "legal."
