Born Archie Leland Bostic on January 18, 1889 in Holton, Ripley County, Indiana.
However, I hear that if you called Arch by his real first name, that he probably would have smacked you.
Arch was the fourth and last child born to his parents, Henry Clay Bostic and Phoebe A. Bradshaw. His siblings were John William, Arle E., and Hattie B.
Arch married Alta Permelia Taylor on November 22, 1914 in Ripley County, Indiana.
The couple had one child: Velma Isadora, born in 1923.
Arch passed away on June 06, 1959 in Tucson, Pima County, Arizona.
He is buried near his wife at the Hopewell Baptist Church Cemetery, Ripley County, Indiana.
