This is a place to start. Mentone is in an area where some HIMES cousins were said to have moved to from LaGrange Co., IN. A lead for me to persue. My cousin's daughter just took a position with a library in the Long Beach Ca area and she is going to help me also on the ERNSBERGER family. I will be reviewing some old notes and will post when I find some new data. The ARNSBERGER name is something I was not aware of, thanks.
