Daisy Mae Arnold Biography

Daisy Mae Arnold was born to Daniel Webster Arnold and Hannah L. Pettis in Frankfort, Benzie, Michigan, USA on Sunday, December 23, 1883.

This is the Daisy Arnold who married Charles Krause, not the Daisy Krause that married Bert Arnold. Yes, it is easy to get confused when siblings marry siblings, as is the case here. Charles Edward Krause and his sister Daisy Mabel Krause married Daisy Mae Arnold and her brother Bertin Daniel Arnold, respectively. Put another way, Charles married Daisy Mae. Daisy Mabel married Bert. Bert and Daisy Mae are siblings. Charles and Daisy Mabel are siblings.

Daisy married Charles Johanes Krause in Platte, Benzie, Michigan, USA between April 14, 1899 and April 14, 1900.

There was also Aunt Daisy (Krause), my dad’s sister. As long as I knew her, she lived in Iron Mountain in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Almost every year she would come to visit, and she’d stay mainly with Aunt Lillie. To me it was rather exciting, since we didn’t have many visitors from far away like across Lake Michigan. My Aunt Lillie loved her sister, but didn’t really approve of the fact that she and her husband ran a beer tavern and catered to the miners in that area – copper, iron, etc. Aunt Daisy was a lot of fun and everyone loved her company. We were sorry to see her leave for the trip home.
