Arnold, David W.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Frederick County, Va., March 16,1816. He experienced religion at the age of sixteen; filled with marked efficiency the offices of class-leader, exhorter, and local preacher for several years; and in 1852 united with the Baltimore Conference, in which body he served with deep interest and great vigor, with but short intermissions of illness caused by overwork, until his decease, Dec. 23, 1875. Mr. Arnold was a devoted parent, a generous, confiding friend, genial in temperament, sound in intellect, and untiring in industry. As a preacher he was practical, faithful, impressive; as a pastor he excelled everywhere. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1876, p. 18.
