Hi!,There, I am looking for any information on my Great-Grandfather.
His name was Antoine Arnold.He was Given this adopted name after he
was found on the streets of England around 1880`s,Kent area I think?.
How he became lost, was a story on it`s own.He came to
came to England by his Grandfathers fishing Vessel from France,Their
last name was or sounded like MATTISH,MITTISH,MATHIAS,MATHIS,MATHIUS,
MATHIES,or MATHEWS? We aren`t really sure.After awhile he went missing
and no-one ever found him,except he was found on the streets.He was then
apparently,taken to Dr.Barnardo`s homes in or around Liverpool.England.
After awhile,He was sent to Canada to be with a Family,Their name was
Cunnington.He was given his new adopted name Arnold,either on the streets
or at Dr.Barnardo`s.Anyone with any information on this man (Antoine Arnold)
would be of much importance to the Arnold Family in Ontario,Canada.Any People
in France,England,Canada who might know or have any clues to this man,please!!
let us know.We would like to hear from any Families,especially from Paris,France
where Great-Grampa said he was Born.Born-around 1875,Paris France.Died-Canada 1957.
We hope to hear from anyone soon...Take care...Guy
