Arthur GENTNER was born 20 Nov 1921 in San Diego Co., CA. He was the youngest child of Edward and Etta Permelia EDWARDS GENTNER. They homesteaded in San Simon in 1920. His mother had sisters in San Diego, so she went there for the birth of her last child, returning to San Simon when Arthur was three weeks old. Arthur GENTNER was a rancher south of Willcox for many years. He died 27 Sept 1977 in Willcox, AZ.

The GENTNERs buried in the San Simon cemetery are Arthur GENTNER's parents, and his brother Glenn GENTNER and wife, Ella Eudora BOWDEN.
