Mrs. A. M. A. Arnett Nov. 29, 1831/ Feb. 4, 1890
Wife of R. A. Arnett, and daughter of Jas. H. & M. E. Veal. Born Handcock Co, GA. Came to her grandfather Wm. Miller of Chambers Co, AL 1848 and joined the Missionary Baptist Church 1849..

In 1850 William owns 12 slaves - 7 females and 5 males - ages 12 - 63.  He wills a total of five females to his four living daughters.  That leaves two females and the five males to wife, Argant.

Notes for ARGANT ?:

The 1850 census for Chambers Co, AL lists the wife of William Miller as Margaret. In his will of 1853 he names her as Argant. The 1860 and 1870 census records of Chambers Co lists her as Argant. 

1860 slave schedule. Argant Miller owned 6 slaves - Four females and two males.   Her husband left her two females and five males.

In 1870 Argant is age 84.  She is living with a black family - Mittie Patterson age 30, Cynthia 7, Cellia 5, Sallie 3, Ella 2, Alice 2/12.  Mittie b. GA.  All children b. AL.

Have not found Argant's parents or maiden name. The census records list her as being born in Georgia. In 1830 she is with her husband and five daughters in Hancock Co, GA.

(Speculation - William and Argant named a daughter Argant Bass and daughter, Amanda Spights named a son Bass. Could maiden name for Argant (Margaret) be Bass?).  There are several Bass' in Hancock Co, GA.  but can not verify.

Notes for JAMES H. VEAL:

After Mary Emily died, James Veal married Martha McClellen and had one daughter, Elizabeth.  He than married Martha Underwood by whom he had six more daughters - Sarah, Martha, Josephine, Louisa, Virginia, and Georgia..

1880Census - Hancock Co, GA widower age 76. Children: Sarah 36, Josephine 26, Kitty (Virginia) 24, Georgia 21. HH # 98.

On his death in 1892 his land was divided between his six daughters by Martha Underwood. On file is a hand drawn plat that says 'Plat of lands of the estate of James H Veal, late of said county (Hancock Co, GA) situated in 11th district-containing four hundred and ten 9/10 acres and a division of this land surveyed for division on Aug 1 & 2, 1893' by S E Pearson. In this plat it is divided between: Josephine Veal, Sarah C Veal, Martha M Meadows, Louisa J Wood, Virginia C Veal and Georgia A Yarbrough. Bordering property division of Louisa J Wood is Isaac M Wood and J M Harrison. Bordering Josephine Veal is James Underwood and Myles Underwood. Bordering the other property is J M Harrison, James M Archer, William Stanley and looks like Pierce Peeler. Louisa may have gone by the nickname of 'LOU'
