    1. ([TNJOHNSO])Surname Shout Out
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Just letting you know that the lists are back up and running again so to "celebrate" our return I'm initiating a first ever Surname Shout Out. A Surname Shout Out works like a Roll Call where we all post an ancestor we're totally stumped on. Please be sure to add vital statistics like date of birth, death, marriage, etc. Happy Hunting!

This picture is really a treasure. You can include a photo provided: with a link to your email address if you want- just in case someone has additional information. If you don't want your email on a website, then I would forward any inquiries to you.

I seem to always be posting questions, but never posting any answers, and for that, I ask your forgiveness. But, it's with good reason, I seldom receive or find many answers. What I would like to request, if I may, is anyone willing to become part of a focus group, to work on my branch of the ARNEY surname, documenting all findings, collecting all the "pieces of the puzzle", then publishing our findings? I ask for no monetary gain, or costs, accept any you may choose to incur in trying to do this research. I, myself, am not in this for any monetary gain, whatsoever. My goal, is to find all the pieces to this puzzle, with documentation, so that anyone researching this particular branch, of the Arney surname, will have a wonderful foundation, to work upon. What is my branch of the ARNEY surname, you ask? Well, the furthest ancestor, I have been able to trace, is Jacob Arney.Jacob Arney, died in Lincoln County, North Carolina, around 1784.Previously, he lived in York(town), York County, Pennsylvania, at least, through the years 1749-1761. At least, four of his children, were born there, including Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr., in 1750, Adam Lawrence Arney, in 1751, Johann Heinrich "Henry" Arney, Sr., in 1755, and Anna Elisabeth Arney, in 1761. One of the main goals, of this focus group, will be to find documentation, on this Jacob Arney, and confirm all of his children, his wives (believed to be 2), and to find who his siblings were, who his parents were, where he was born, where his parents were born, etc. I, myself, will share everything I have found, regarding Jacob Arney, and this family, that we can use to begin our search, documenting and confirming information. As an example, I descend from Jacob Arney's son, Peter Arney.Jacob Arney > Peter Arney (NC) > Matthew Arney, Sr. (TN) > William Ervin Arney (TN) > Otha Jouett Arney (TN) > Stanley Goble Arney (TN) > Jerry Kenneth Arney, Sr. (TN) > Myself. Why is Jacob Arney, a mystery or "brick wall"?For several decades, an "error" has been passed down, regarding who Jacob Arney's parents were. This "error" has made it extremely difficult trying to learn, the truth.I have been shown and corroborated, that this "error", is in fact an "error".Now, this presents a problem, if we know who Jacob Arney's parents are NOT, how do we find out, who his parents really were? This is the main goal, of this focus group, if we are successful, we will solve what could be called (this branch of the ARNEY surname's) "Arney Holy Grail", finding something, that so far, no one has been able to find yet. The main areas of focus, will be North Carolina and Pennsylvania, at least when it comes to Jacob Arney, until we learn anything more about him. If you are interested, please email me back, if there's enough interest, we will get together, so to speak. If no interest, that's OK, because I will certainly keep trying to solve this, on my own.

    3. I'm very glad to see the Johnson County web site is going to be revived. Some years ago, Mary Floy Katzman and Pam Cresswell did a wonderful job with a JCO website, and Mary Floy honchoed a listserve for genealogists working on surnames in the county too. Unfortunately, when Mary Floyd died, both efforts fell apart. Then, when county historian Tom Gentry died, the county again became a black hole insofar as information and leads were concerned. John Rochelle may still be active down there. I look forward to the new effort!

    3. Pictures of the County courthouse, waterfalls- anything that you would think might be of interest to others. Information about early settlers ( I have some information about Archibald Bradfute) or families in Johnson County Information about schools, communities and churches in Johnson county. If someone's family lived in Johnson County in the 1800's or even the 1900's, I want them to be able to see and read what it was/is like. For instance, if someone found that their family lived in Butler in 1900, they might find Butler on a map today. That is not the whole story, because Old Butler does not exist today. The Story of Butler is very interesting and I know it's not the only one!

    1. [TNJOHNSO] Peter Arney 1772 to 1845
    2. Stan Arney
    3. Peter Arney 1772 Born in Tryon (now Lincoln) County, North Carolina. 1787 Being labeled an "orphan" by the court (Lincoln County), Peter (age 15) is bound over to a John Fullenwider (Fulenwider) to learn the trade of a miller, until 21 yrs of age. [Note: Peter Arney's father, Jacob, died in 1784] 1793 Peter moves to Wythe County, Virginia and marries Margaret (surname unknown) 1793 daughter, Margaret is born (named after her mother) 1797 son, Adam is born 1799 son, Henry is born 1804 son, John is born 1805 daughter, Lucretia is born [Note: Peter had more children, born in Tennessee] 1799 Peter Arney is found in Smith County, Tennessee (signing a petition to dispute the annexation of Smith and Wilson Counties in Tennessee) 1801 Peter Arney is found in Jackson County, Tennessee tax rolls. However, Peter Arney is not found on any official U.S. Federal Census (1790, 1800, or 1810) until the 1820 U.S. Federal Census of Overton County, Tennessee.  He is found in the next 3 (1820, 1830, & 1840).  Peter Arney died in 1845, in Overton County, TN. I seek, DTP (Definitive Tangible Proof) of this marriage and subsequent births. I have found many people (via Rootsweb, Ancestry, YahooGroups, other genealogy sites and forums) who have a list of Peter's children, but none seem to have actual DTP of these children's births/baptisms or of his marriage to Margaret. I suppose, it is easy to extrapolate a date of birth, when the U.S. Federal Census gives the person's age, you can subtract that from the year of the census, and get a rough estimate of birth year (example:  U.S. Federal Census 1850, Overton County, Tennessee lists Adam Arney, age 63, which would put his birth year at 1797). Having actual proof of his birth/baptism is a different story altogether though. Question:  Am I asking too much, on this issue?  Is it possible that the record of Peter Arney's marriage to Margaret (surname, yet unknown) simply does not exist anymore? Is it possible that the records of the births/baptisms of any of his children, simply does not exist anymore? If so, I will just have to resign myself, that I will never be able to prove that Peter was actually in Virginia at all, but will have to accept what others have, as being the known truth. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be happy to hear them. Thank you for your time, consideration, and cooperation, I truly appreciate it.

    2. Bradley Fields
    3. Can anyone help me get directions to Owens Cemetery in Shingletown, Johnson Co , TN. I've been looking on the internet and can't seem to find any. I was hoping someone could help me out. My great great granparents are buried there. The more precise the directions the better. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas , and a happy New Year. Thanks , Brad Fields
