Did Jemima, daughter of Isaac and Mary Arnold marry William Arnold, son of
George Arnold, who was a son of Isaac and Sarah Arnold?
1748 - Will of Anthony Arnold of Caroline County, Virginia. Wife Isabell.
Was this Anthony the father of Anthony Arnold, wife Mary, of Spotsylvania
County, Virginia who had a brother William Arnold who may have married
Judith Edwards, who had a Roberts mother?
August 11, 1749 - Will of William Arnold, Caroline County, Virginia.
Was this William a brother of Anthony Arnold, wife Isabel?
In 1704 Anthony Arnold had 100 acres in King William County. Virginia, and
Benjamin Arnold had 1000 acres in the same county.
Were they brothers, or was Benjamin father of Anthony? Which Benjamin
is this one? The one who married Bathsheba Bell, or the one with wife
In 1757 one Isaac Arnold made his will in King George County, Virginia. His eldest
son was Isaac. and he had sons William Arnold and Benjamin Arnold. One of the
above Benjamins may have been son of this Isaac.
One Isaac Arnold of King George County, Virginia had a son Isaac. a son Thomas.
This son Thomas had sons John, James and Humphrey Arnold.
Weedon Arnold, wife Molly of Westmoreland County, Virginia, was a son of James Arnold, who was a son of Thomas Arnold.
The Anthony Arnold of Caroline County. Virginia bought land here in 1675 from James Taylor. In 1687 Benjamin Arnold of Caroline bought this land. In 1723 an Edward Arnold bought land in this County.
Isaac Arnold, wife Sarah of Spotsylvania County, Virginia, deceased by 1770, may have been the son of the Isaac who made will in 1757. Isaac and Sarah had a son Isaac. a son George and perhaps a son William. They had a daughter Sarah Steward, wife of John, and a son Benjamin. This Benjamin may be the one who had wife Elizabeth, children James, Betsy, Susannah and Barbary. His widow, Elizabeth, married (2nd) James Edwards.
Johnston County, North Carolina deeds:
Anthony Arendal - 1749
William Arendal - 1748
James Arrendall from William Arrendall - 1754.
I think these Arendals are Anthony Arnold and William Arnold who died or left
wills in the Caroline-Spotsylvania area of Virginia.
