Years ago I too wanted a copy of this will. I found that the will IS in the indicated archives, but it is largely illegible. It mentions Jacob and his wife Elizabeth and "my children". I have since found that Elizabeth was the second wife, the first being Anna Ursula Kron. She was married to Jacob Arney in York County, Pennsylvania and was a daughter of Laurence Kron and Anna Ursula Bender. Another of their daughters, Elizabeth, married Werner Spainhower. Jacob Arney was NOT the son of a Frederick Arney as is indicated in many references (an error I originally made in the 1950's) Frederick did have a son Jacob, but he died in Pennsylvania in abour 1780.(see the Third Series of the Pennsylvania Archives) His wife's name was Barbara. The children of Jacob and Ursula Arney, as far as I have been able to determine, were Christian, Henry, Lawrence (probably Adam Lawrence - not Adam Lorane), and Elizabeth Arney. Some references give the name of the second wife as Elizabeth HALL, but I have never seen any verification of that.
