Thank you, Betty Fox! I wanted to let the author of the question, Rebecca (Rabb) Allen, know that I am also looking for information about the Arnold family in New Jersey. I had seen an Ancestry hint about John Joseph Arnold. Thank you for the information from the New Jersey Marriage Index, confirming the 1911 New Jersey marriage date with Virginia Lawson. Following Ancestry hints, it looks like they had four children together, Geraldine W. Arnold (1914 NJ - 5 Feb 2003), Virginia Arnold (about 1915 NJ - 11 Mar 1989), John Arnold (about 1917 NJ - ?), and Robert Arthur Arnold (4 May 1920 - 21 Apr 1959). We don't have any confirmation for John Joseph Arnold's dates and places of birth or death. We only have the Ancestry hint about a John Joseph Arnold born 19 Feb 1887 in Bainbridge, Decatur County, Georgia. It looks like the mother, Virginia Sarah Lawson, and the youngest, Robert Arthur Arnold, left the father and the older three children, and moved to San Francisco sometime in the 1920s, since the 1930 census has them living in San Francisco CA. From there, they went to Oakland CA, where they met my grandmother. We don't have any further information about John Joseph Arnold or the three older children. It is helpful to see the information from the New Jersey Marriage Index. Now we know that John and Virginia were married in New Jersey in 1911. Thank you again.
