This site contains my maternal family lines and is dedicated to my grandparents John Peter Arnold and Gladys Mabel Glenn who were a huge influence in my life and are missed each and every day.
Across the Ocean
These families come from various regions around the world. John Peter Arnold's grandparents were of German descent. The Arnold's coming from Bayern Germany. The Hunkers & Reidenbachs from Wurtemburg, Germany. The Kauls from Rhieland.
Gladys Mabel Glenn's grandparents and great grandparents came from the British Isles. The Glenns & Careys from Ireland. The Murrays from Edinburgh Scotland. The Brooks came during the Colonial Period from England.
The Arnolds, Hunkers, Glenns & Murrays all resided in Pennsylvania after arriving in America. Mainly in and around Westmoreland County. My direct lines ultimately ending up in Jackson County, Kansas.
The Brooks resided first in Connecticut. The Carey's can be traced back to Binghamton, Broome Co., NY. From there the two groups resided in Conneaut, Ashtabula County, Ohio. My direct line ultimately ended up in Jackson Co., Kansas.
The Kauls and Reidenbachs landed in Albany, NY and made there way to Milwaukee Wisconsin. From there they went onto New Frankfort, Saline County, Missouri. My direct line ultimately ending up in Jackson County, Kansas
