Notes

  • In 1900 the census records that Arthur was living in Point DeLuce inArkansas County.  Ancestry.com says that the Longs were in DeWitt townin the Point DeLuce Township.  Nothing on the actual page shows theywere in any town.  The line for a town name is empty on this page.Many Dumonds lived in this area, although the family of Arthur'sfuture wife, Lillie Dumond, were in Cleburne County in 1900.

    Arthur's WWI Draft Card tells us his birthday and other details.  Heis living, or at least farming, at Gillette in southern ArkansasCounty.  Since he registered in Point DeLuce, maybe he was not livingat the farm he was working.  Deluce is south of DeWtitt, northeast ofGillette and near LaGrue where he is reported resident in the 1920census.

    In 1920 Arthur is still in the DeWitt area, but living in the LaGrueTownship of Arkansas County, east of DeWitt, toward Ethel.  He andLillie Dumond have married and have one child Claud, who is 1 yearold.  I do not have definite information on when Lillie's family movedto the Ethel-DeWitt area.

    The Social Security Death Index confirms Arthur's birth date we foundin a genealogy and provides details on his death.  This indicates thefamily was still living in Cleburne C;County, where the last census,1930, reported them.

    The 1900 census had reported Arthur's birthday as June 1891.  Thiscensus often had errors.  I will follow the more reliable SSDI forArthur's birth date.
