FatherChandler Arthur b. circa 1777, d. February 6, 1872

Biography* Alexander Arthur, son of Chandler and Mary Arthur, was born in the Ansted area in 1797 and came with his parents to the Loop settlement on the Bowyer's Ferry Road in the early 1800s. He married Elizabeth, daughter of _______ and _______ Meadows, and lived at Penfield Branch at one time. He helped with the building of the road that was opened down that branch to Young's Ferry in 1841 and was appointed to locate new roads in various parts of the Loop. Penfield Branch was then called Arthur's Creek because several Arthurs lived there--Chandler, Abraham, Thomas, and Alexander. They were assigned to do the maintenance work on the new road after it was opened. Eventually, these Arthurs all established permanent homes in the Loop, but in different sections. Alexander took advantage of an opportunity to acquire a homestead in a beautiful basin among the hills with good terrain for farming and with a favorable location not far from the county seat. The branch mentioned in the deed, which came to be called Arthur's Creek also, joins Marrs Branch and empties into New River a mile below Fayette Station. Title to the tract of 265 acres, "beginning near the Turnpike road at an old cabin near a branch", was obtained from Levi Jones in 1856, but it is evident that Arthur had possession at an earlier date. A quarter of a mile up this branch, Alexander erected a good two-story log house that still stands. There, too, was the smithy, or blacksmith shop; for Alexander, like other Arthurs before and after him, was a blacksmith. William Arthur, the youngest son, was born in the log house in 1852, about two years after it was built. He married Nancy Rodes, daughter of John and Elizabeth Rodes, and continued to live in the same house until 1937. Other sons and daughters of Alexander and Elizabeth were Henry, Skelton, Alex, Marshall, Madison, Edward, Rebecca, Polly, and Lizzie. Four of the sons - Skelton, Alex, Marshall, and Madison - went into the Confederate Army, and Henry, the oldest, enlisted in the Union Army. Skelton, a lieutenant in Thurmond's Company of Rangers, and Alex and Marshall in the Kanawha Rangers, gave their lives to the lost cause. Henry was wounded in the battle at Piney, but survived and was pensioned in his old age.2
