In trying to learn more, about Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr.'s parents, I'm praying that the "key" lies with some descendants of Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr.

We know that Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr.'s, father was Jacob Arney, who left his Will dated in 1782, in Lincoln County, North Carolina.

We know the name of Jacob Arney's Wife, at the time of the writing of his Will, was Elizabeth.

Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr., would have received most (if not all) of his father's (Jacob's) land, after his father passed.

Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr., in turn, left his plantation and land to his son, Christian "Christy" Arney, Jr., but only if he wanted it (assuming that he kept the plantation, etc.).

The plantation would have been passed down to his (Christy, Jr.'s) Widow, and young children, only a few years later.

Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr., was the oldest son of Jacob Arney, and he is the best chance, to find out more information about his parents (Jacob & Elizabeth).

It's believed that Jacob Arney's 1st Wife, was Anna Ursula Kron, and they had 4 "known" children:
Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr. (1750-1834)
Adam "Lawrence" Arney (1751-1802)
Johann Heinrich "Henry" Arney (1755-1830)
Anna Elisabeth Arney-Setser/Setzer (1861-1849)

After the death of Anna Ursula Kron (Arney), it's believed that Jacob Arney, moved to the area of Tryon County, NC

2nd Wife, Elizabeth (surname/maiden name, unconfirmed).
They had 3 additional children:
Peter Arney (1772-1845)
Catherine Arney-Edleman (1774-????)
Tobias Arney (1775-????)

If you are a descendant of Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr., or you know of someone who is, please let me know.

[This Jacob Arney, was NOT the son of Frederick & Anna Maria Ernigh, who arrived in the USA, in 1732!!!]
