James Arnold was born about 1790 in Georgia, United States. Specific estimates for his birth are:

- 1790-1800, according to the 1840 US census;[1]
- about 1788, according to the 1860 US census;[2]
- about 1795, according to the 1870 US census.[3]

He married Telitha. Her last name is usually reported as Catt or Katz.

In the 1840 US census, James Arnold was living in Copiah, Mississippi. His household included one male 10-14, one male 15-19, one male 40-49 (himself, so born 1790-1800), one female 5-9, and one female 30-39. The latter would place Telitha as born 1801-1810).[1]

In 1860, James Arnold (72, born Georgia) and Telitha Arnold (52, born Georgia) were living in Franklin, Mississippi, with children Mary Arnold (17) and William Arnold (14).[2]

Telitha is believed to have died about or before 1870.

It appears that her husband James Arnold is in the 1870 census, age 75 (born about 1795 in Georgia), but married to Lucinda Arnold (60, born about 1810 in Mississippi). They were living in Franklin Mississippi, with child James J Arnold (6).[3] His age is slightly different than listed in the 1860 census, but within accuracy of census records for this time period.

He passed away about 1870.
