Records from schools for the Deaf

My research into the Arnett family has led me to the records of several of the schools for the Deaf. In our line, which must have some form of inheritable deafness, we had students at the Kentucky, Indiana, Missouri and Kansas schools. The first mention of deafness in the family occurred in an 1808 will. And today a student at Gallaudet is descended from this line. I encourage all genealogists to write or visit the schools where their family members may have attended. I found married names, causes of death, sibling and other familial connections, occupations and other things I never would have found otherwise. Good Luck, marge fox
