I recently found a book in Salt Lake City entitled THE GENEALOGY OF THE JACOB LEIGHTY FAMILY OF FAYETTE COUNTY PENNSYLVANIA by Floyd Harold Leighty Sr. 1980 which contains a section on "Varns Lineage."Elizabeth Varns d/o of Jacob and Mary Stauffer Varns was b. 11 Mar 1803.She m. Conrad Strickler II.Their children included Jacob b. 20 Aug 1822, Mary, Conrad, Henry, John, Elizabeth, David, Samuel, and Sarah.
In the 1850 census the family was living in Fayette Co., PA--Franklin Twp.
If you haven't found the Leighty book and need birth dates for the children of Jacob and Mary Varns, I'll be happy to send them.Thirteen children are shown.
