For reasons not yet determined, Arthur DeLoach left his family in Lauderdale County, TN before 1880 and went to Tombstone, Pima County, Arizona. He was apparently seeking his fortune, because in 1881, he either bought or filed claim to three silver mines. One of these he named The Tennessee Mine. He appears twice in the 1880 Pima County, AZ census, once as a member of the Muldoon Mining Camp, and once at his residence in Tombstone (he owned a lot and a cabin on Fremont Street). In the latter listing, he is shown as 58 years old, he, his father and mother born in North Carolina.
Arthur died on 18 Jan 1882 in Tombstone, and was buried in the Boothill Cemetery. The cause of death is unknown. George Pridham was appointed as the Administrator of his estate. An inventory of his estate determined that his lot and cabin were valued at $40, a team of horses, harnesses and an old wagon were sold for $112, and the three mines were deemed to have no value.
The expenses for his burial in Boothill were $73.36. The expenses for the administration of his estate were $84.40. There was no mention of a family in his probate records.
