Wilton G. Arner, oldest son of Jesse B. and Mary Belle Arner, was born at Osage, Wyo., February 23, 1902.

He moved with his parents to his father's homestead near Roundtop in the Sand Creek Valley when he was about a year old and grew to manhood in this area, getting his grade school education in the rural school near Roundtop, and attending Chadron State Normal for high school education.

He later worked as a barber in Clairmont and Sheridan, Wyo., for about two years, after which he returned to Sioux County and went into the sheep raising business south of Andrews for a few years.

On the 10th of October 1931, he was married to Margie E. Murphy and they continued to live in the Andrews area for a time where his wife taught in the rural schools, later moving back to the Roundtop area to take a homestead and help his parents with the old home place. After their death he bought the home place and was still operating it at the time of his death, living in Crawford during the winter months the past two years.

Mr. Arner loved to sing and play musical instruments, entertaining people being his most loved hobby. He had been quite active in the Methodist Church for the past several years.

Survivors include his wife, Margie; two brothers, Ernest of Crawford and Burt of Ocean Shores, Wash.; four nieces, two nephews; two aunts, Mrs. Florence Martin of Lusk, Wyo. and Cora Sowers of Crawford.
