Looking for collaborators to solve a genealogical mystery

Posted: 9 Jan 2013 8:33PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: ARNEY, ARNY
Jacob Arney (????-1782), died in Lincoln County, North Carolina

Jacob Arney married Anna Ursula KRON (1722-1761)

Anna Ursula KRON, arrived in the USA, from Essenhiem, Germany, in 1741, with her family.

Jacob and Anna Ursula had, at least, 4 children, born in the area of Yorktown, York County, Pennsylvania.

Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr. (1750-1834), died in Lincoln County, North Carolina
Adam "Lawernce" Arney (1751-1802), died in Burke County, North Carolina
Johann Heinrich "Henry" Arney, Sr. (1755-1830), died in Owen County, Indiana
Anna Elisabeth Setzer/Setser (1761-1849), died in Caldwell County, North Carolina

It's believed the family, left Pennsylvania, around 1767, moving to the area of Tryon County, North Carolina.

York County, Pennsylvania was created from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 1749.

So, it's possible the family was actually living in Lancaster County, until the creation of York County.

Yorktown would have been in Lancaster County, until 1749, then would be in York County, Pennsylvania.

We know that Jacob's 1st Wife, Anna Ursula KRON, arrived in the United States, in 1741.
How long it took her to get together with Jacob and marry, is unknown.

In order to solve this mystery, of Jacob Arney, it's going to take a concerted effort, with people willing to collaborate, and genealogically "hammer" the areas of Lancaster County, PA, & York County, PA, until the truth can be learned.

Thank you, for your time, consideration, and cooperation, I truly appreciate it.
