The Breeze – May 25, 1911 – Page 4

Rev. E. B. Arms, one of the best known Universalist ministers in the south, died at his home in Garland, Ala., last week. Mr. Arms was related to the Cawthon family, and in the early days taught school in the northwestern part of the county, and a number of those now prominent in Walton county affairs were among his students. He was a frequent visitor here, and had a large number of friends all over his section.
