Does anyone have any information on Harden Arnold (1804-1859) father of Martha Jeanette (Arnold) Davis?

Martha is my great grandmother.  She married John Wesley Davis 11 June 1872.  Her father Harden Arnold was killed in a railroad accident in Fetterman, Virginia in April 1859.  I have now information beyond that and am trying to find who his parents are.

Thank you Marion,

I have used FamilySearch and Ancestry in my search, but still no results.  I will continue to seek this information through all the available avenues.  I had planned to go back there and do a physical record search but....
Haven’t found anything on findmypast.

Not much genealogical info, but I found a halfway-decent newsprint photo via NewspaperArchive!  (See Harden's WT profile).  Also, a couple of articles about his son, Richard H. Arnold (also NOT in WT yet), which refer to the tragic accident.
