    • Stephen Arnett was born about 1780, a son of David Arnett who died in 1825 Harlan Co. KY and a brother to Reuben Arnett who settled in the Middle Fork section of Magoffin Co.

      He is listed on the 1800 and 1801 tax lists for Knox Co. KY, on the 1802 Russell Co. VA tax list, then in 1803 on the lists for Knox Co. again.
