Hello all, first of all please forgive me if I am going over something that has already been discussed, I tried to read all the inquiries, however there were so many I did not have time to read them all. My name is Charles Oren Varnes and I was born in Peoria, Illinois. One of four children (Stacey, Kim, and Heather). Our father was Charles Arnold Varnes Jr.(one of six children) m. Glenda Sue Pittmen (my mother) and now to Kimberely Ann Dunn. My grandfather was Charles Arnold Varnes Sr. m. ClairEllen Varnes (Coots). (this was not my fathers mother however, long story to get into) My great grandfather was Arnold William Varnes (possibly William Arnold) m. Louise Lowder. I am not sure how many brothers and sisters Arnold William had.His father was Charles Oren Varnes (who I am named after) many of his documents were signed C.O. Varnes, which I am called also. His father was Isaac Varnes (who is believed to be from Pennsylvania) and as I have read it seems as this assumption was correct. Another assumption by the family was his father was Valentine.However this is where I get confused, it seems like there are many Valentines and Isaacs from Pennsylvania. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org please email me if you have any information on these two people. If you want more information on what I have about the Varnes' of central Illinois and Iowa just let me know. Thanks again for the help!
