The message sure didn't contain much information. You seem to be talking about
Major Andrew Arnold who married Isabella Parks and lived around Kittanning in
Armstrong Co. PA. Your message doesn't contain enough information to tell
what you've read and what you haven't seen yet. The Smith book on Armstrong
Co. contains a short biography on a grandson of Major Andrew Arnold, Harry A.
Arnold (b. 1852 in Kittanning PA) who was the son of Harry J. Arnold.
The Smith book says that Major Andrew Arnold had two sons and two daughters.
I am particularly interested in one of the daughters, although I don't even know
her name yet, since an Andrew Arnold JOHNSTON was born in Kittanning PA in
1842, according to the records of the First Presbyterian Church of Kittanning.
Taking into account the Scottish custom of naming children after their
grandparents and parents, this Andrew Arnold JOHNSTON is likely to be a
grandchild of Major Andrew Arnold. The father and mother of Andrew Arnold
JOHNSTON were John Robinson JOHNSTON and Isabella MATTHEWS. Did
a daughter of Major Andrew Arnold marry either a JOHNSTON or a MATTHEWS
around Kittanning, Armstrong Co. PA sometime around the 1820s?
