Jacob Arney (????-1782) We do not know who his Parents and Siblings were, and where were each of them born.
So let us take a look, at the families "surrounding" him.
Jacob ARNEY married his 1st Wife, Anna Ursula KRON
Anna Ursula KRON (1722-1761), born in Essenheim, Germany Arrived in the United States, in 1741, aboard the Ship "St. Mark" w/ her family
Jacob & Anna Ursula Arney's 1st Son Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr. (1750-1834) Married Anna Catharina KIENER (1754-1833) Her Father was Abraham KNUR (1717-1795) Arrived in the United States, from Germany, in 1741, aboard the Ship "Lydia"
Jacob & Anna Ursula Arney's 2nd Son Adam "Lawrence" Arney (1751-1802) Married Anna Catherine LUTZ (1762-1862) Her Father was Johann Jerg/George LUTZ, Jr (1739-1777) Arrived in the United States, from Germany, in 1749, aboard the Ship "Lydia"
Jacob & Anna Ursula Arney's 3rd Son Johann Heinrich "Henry" Arney, Sr. (1755-1830) Married Magdalena FULK (1755-1849) Her Father was Andreas Volck (1722-1790) Her Grandfather was Andreas VOLCK (1678-1747) Arrived in the United States, from Germany, in 1708, record of ship lost
Jacob & Anna Ursula Arney's 1st Daughter Anna Elisabeth Arney (1761-1849) Married Johannes "Adam" Setzer/Setser, Sr. (1758-1843) His Father was Jacob SETZER (1730-1766) Arrived in the United States, from Germany, in 1753, aboard the Ship "Brothers"
Looking at this chronologically 1708 Andreas VOLCK 1741 Anna Ursula KRON 1741 Abraham KNUR 1749 Johann Jerg/George LUTZ, Sr. 1753 Jacob SETZER
So, odds are very good, that our Jacob ARNEY (or his Parents, etc.), also came from Germany. They might also have arrived between 1708-1749, maybe even earlier.
What do you think?
Thank you, for your time, consideration, and cooperation, I appreciate it.
