Brenda thanks for your involment. I have not done a lot of research in the PA records on this family. Tom Rider seems to have much more proven info but aparently the info on Jacob Arney is sketchy at best. I would start with everything I could find in York Co. This includes Church and civil records. Families did stick together. My Christian Arney seems to have had a relationship with the Kenner family in NC. Jacob's birth may be ca 1720's so he may or may not be the immigrant. Sometimes records 50 years later may give a clue. If Jacob did marry Elizabeth Hall as a second wife perhaps there was a previous connection.Jacob's children names could be a clue. The Adam Lawrence could be from Lorentz Krohn. Christian could be from Jacob's father, but nothing is proven. I'll stop rambling but happy to answer questions. Good luck.
