I have information on my husband's branch of Arns who emigrated from Durrn, Germany on October 28, 1850. They eventually settled in the Delhi, Ontario area of Canada via the Erie Canal. They had landed on February 14, 1851 in Hobochen, New Jersey, U.S.A. The family that emigrated from Durrn was Kornelius Arn (born 1795) his wife Karoline Wilhelmene Bossert Arn (born 1797) and nine or ten of their seventeen children. The remainder of the children died young and are buried in Germany.

Kornelius had been a farmer in Durrn in 1836 and a 'burgomaster' in 1837. His grandfather is 'supposedly' a Martin Arn (born 1696, died 1753, married 1742(second wife) Regina Catharina).

Two of Kornelius Arn's siblings were 'supposedly' named Johann Jacob and Daniel.

Kornelius Arn's great grandfather was 'supposedly' Johannes Arn who was born circa 1646 in Switzerland, died May 23, 1702 Durrn, Germany & married Katharine Klumpp.

Any information on these distant branches would be most welcome.

I am a descendent of Mathias Klump, born 9/01/1831 in Durrn. I believe his father was Mathias Klumpp, born 1/24/1789 and that his mother was Ernestine Arn, whose parents were Martin Arn & Rosine Barth. Ernestine Arn was born 10/10/1807. Rosine Barth's dad was Absolm Barth. There's a note indicating Martin Arn & Rosine Barth were divorced. Mathias Klumpp also married a woman whose last name was Arn and fathered 3 kids + Mathias Klump: Absolm Klump (born 8/22/1823 in Durrn), Ernestine Klump (born 6/24/1836) & Michael Klumpp (b. 2/27/1839 d. 3/7/1839 in Durrn) This information came from Lutheran Church records. I hope this is accurate & helpful. I can furnish more about MAthias Klump & his descendants. lk

I am of the same Arn line. I grew up near Delhi. What is your relation to Cornelius? My chain to him is through Elias - John William - Charles Bruce - William.

Another relative did some work on this, I may have more on this chain, the package I have is put away somewhere, i'll pull it out and let you know if I have more.

I am am also a descendant of Mathias Klump (1 Sept 1831). My Great-Great-Grandmother is Missouri Belle Klump Wells (12 Nov 1854) of Ohio and Illinois. Missouri Belle is the Grand-daughter of Mathias Klumpp and Austeina (Ernestine) Arn. I am trying to decipher the lineage and I'm finding it difficult. The bit of information you have provided below is already infinitely helpful. Any more info or leads would be greatly appreciated.

In turn I would be happy to share what I have found, including more names of the family.

Sorry it has taken us awhile to reply. I checked the main information in our Arn family tree and came up with the following.Since these families tended to be very large, she is likely related to ours in some way. Here is a brief outline of what we have on the Arn family tree related to my husband;

Johannes Arn (born circa 1646 in Switzerland) died May 23, 1702 in Durrn, Germany. He married Katharine Klumpp circa 1685 in Durrn. So, as you can see by these two names, you are likely very definitely related to my husband's family. We have no idea who Joannes Arn's siblings or parents are nor do we know who Katharine Klumpp's parents or siblings are. This is likely where yours fits in with ours.

Johannes Arn and Katharine Klumpp had six children that we know of (there may have been more that we do not know of). The ones we know of were the following:
Juliana (b.c. 1692, Johann Michael b. 1693, Eva b. 1695, Martin b. 1696 (died 1757), Catharina b.c.1698, Anna Barbara b.1701.

My husband's family are descended from the Martin Arn who married a second wife in 1742. His name appears to be Hans Martin and he was born Dec. 28, 1696. He married twice. The first wife was Katharina Schlegel (22 Feb. 1724) but it is from his second wife Regina Catharina (1742)that my husband is descended from. As Hans Martin died in 1757, there must have been another generation down where our Cornelius (Kornelius) fits in as he was not born until May 13, 1795. He married August 8, 1816 to Karoline Wilhelmina Bossert on August 8, 1816. Kornelius had two siblings named Johann Jacob and Daniel.Kornelius/Cornelius was a farmer in Durrn in 1836, a Burgomaster in 1837 in Durrn and in 1850 he emigrated to Canada. He died in Canada in 1866. He had 17 children but 7 died young.

Now here is something interesting. You said that your Mathias Klump married an Ernestine Arn. Well, back in the 17th century, our Hans Martin Arn (who was born 28 Dec. 1696), had a brother Johann Michael who was born 1 October 1693 and married May 10 1718 Anna Barbara Schafer (Johann Michael Arn died in 1760). One of their children was named Ernestina (she was born 1741 and is the youngest of their 10 children that we have listed. Here are the names of all of Johann Michael Arn and Anna Barbara Schafer's children:
Catharine Barbara 1719, Johannes 1721, Margaretha 1722, Anna Rosina 1726, Anna Eva 1728, Johann Michael 1730, Maria Salome 1732, Jacob Fredericke 1734, Daniel 1736 and then Ernestina 1741. So perhaps this Ernestina is your ancestor!

Hope this is not too confusing and that it helps somewhat!
