Arthur Bethel is my uncle and I was named after him. My mother told me about him when I was a little boy. Although I never met him, I did visit with one of his daughters in 1958. I would like to learn more about him and would like to read newspaper accounts if someone can let me know how to access the information. Frederick Bethel Griswold, Fredonia, AZ
