Animas Village Cemetery

animasgrave.jpg

On Hwy 9 just east of Animas sits a plot with one marked tombstone. Isaac Arnold was born in Ohio in 1862 and married Josephine McFarland in 1888. They had four sons, Willard (1892-1915), Haman (1890-), Frederick (1896-) and Paul (1902-), all born in Texas. The family is noted in the 1910 census as living at Animas Station, Grant County, NM with Isaac self-employed as an inventor.

They lived there until at least 1917, when the eldest of the boys registered for the WWI draft. Homan raised goats for hair and meat and Fred worked on a ranch. By 1920, the family was in Tucson, Arizona, except Homan, who went to El Paso, Texas. The lone marker is that of Willard H. Arnold, who died in 1915. There are several unmarked graves, also.
