October 26, 1793 - June 11, 1872
Phinehas Arms was the son of Phinehas and Lydia (Root)* Arms. He was born in Wilmington Township, Windham County, Vermont. Phinehas was a soldier in the War of 1812.
On April 4, 1822, he married Maria Bolles in Bridgewater, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. They lived in Rock County, Wisconsin, in 1850 and 1855. They were living in Winnesheik County, Iowa, in 1860.
Phinehas died in Nettleton, Caldwell County, Missouri. He is buried in the Rohrbaugh Cemetery in Hamilton, Caldwell County, Missouri. His widow, Maria, died on September 9, 1880, also in Nettleton, and buried in the Rohrbaugh Cemetery.
* There is a record of Phinehas' birth in Vermont stating his mother's name is Abigail. However, a christening record in Massachusetts names Lydia Root his mother, as well as numerous user-submitted family trees at ancestry.com. This would take some research to straighten out, which I will leave to the family members, at this time. JA
