I have spoke with an aunt of mine who has done some research of our family line as well and got some more information that might help lead some of you in the right direction and hopefully give someone a connection to my family.As stated in the previous message as far as we know we can trace back to Isaac Varnes, father of Charles Oren Varnes.We do know that Isaac left Charles' mother and moved to Kansas where he passed away. However due to a courthouse fire, we do not have physical evidence of his final resting place, nor do we know if he remarried when he arrived (he was still young enough to start a new family).The part in which I said that we had the assumption about Isaacs father was Valentine is a question I have.Here are some dates of my family line that might help connect me back to PA.
Charles Oren Varnes (ME) 1984 Charles Arnold Varnes Jr. (My Father) 1955 Charles Arnold Varnes Sr. (My Grandfather) 1932 Arnold William (or William Arnold) Varnes (Great Grandfather) 1914 (possibly 1912) Charles Oren Varnes (2Great Grandfather) ??? Isaac Varnes (3Great Grandfather) ???
I have taken notes of many of the postings and plan on emailing many of you directly in hopes to finding some more answers, if you have any information please let me know. Thanks again.
