Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Hiram D ARTHUR

His biography reads:

"He received the greater part of his schooling in his native county,
and up to eighteen years of age worked at farming. In 1874, he began
in the saw mill and lumbering business and this has been his chief
occupation ever since, although , he owns a well improved and fairly
stocked farm of 105 acres. Mr. Arthur deserves much credit for his
success, as he began doing for himself a poor boy, and by energy and
industry has accumulated valuable property.

In politics, Mr. Arthur casts his influence in favor of the Democratic
party and as a member of this organization he favors reform in every
respect. During the spring of 1884, he expects to locate in Tennessee
where, in company with a brother (John), he intends continuing the
lumber business."
