Arners in eastern Ohio/PA... Swiss?
Posted by: Joe Freeman (ID *****3012) Date: February 22, 2004 at 21:14:13

I am descended from a Hannah Arner Oyster, b. 7 Jan 1820 in eastern Ohio (in Springfield Twp., than part of Columbiana Co., later -- post 1840 -- becoming part of Mahoning Co.). Her birth was recorded in the records of the Old Springfield Lutheran & Reformed Church. Her parents were John and Elizabeth Arner, who appear in the 1820, 1830 and 1840 Ohio censuses as resident in Springfield Twp.

I am wondering if 'my' John Arner (Hannah's father) might be connected to the Swiss line of Johann Ulrich Arner (1699-1765) who came to the U.S. in 1735, settling in Lehigh County, PA. I'm told he had a son Heinrich (b.1742 Northampton Co, PA) who ended up passing away in Mahoning Co.,Ohio in 1828. I also saw, on Kindred Konnections, a birth record for a John Arner, b. 29 Mar 1793 in Lehigh, PA. Can anyone familiar with the Johann Ulrich Arner line help me make a connection to 'my' John Arner?

Many thanks.

Joe Freeman
