On June 20, 1837, the clerk of the levy court in St. Mary's County, Maryland removed 30-year-old Arnold and 25-year-old Hamilton from Joseph Carbery's tax burden. Rev. Carbery was the manager of the Jesuits' St. Inigoes plantation at the time. Arnold was a sailor, who perhaps fled St. Inigoes. The Jesuits sold Hamilton out of state.
