Julie, good to hear from you. The Van Arsdalen/Van Arsdol's belonged to the Dutch Reformed Church when they lived in Pennsylvania and Kentucky, but in Ohio I don't believe there were any churches for a few years. William died in 1827 at Fort Amanda, and I haven't found any church records that go back that far. However, some of the later generations belonged to the Christian Church. I don't have Beulah Armstrong named as one of my John Armstrong's descendants, but who knows. They may have come from Kentucky, as many of the Kentucky militia who served in Ohio during the War of 1812, came back to settle there. My Van family was in Montgomery County by 1798, and Nancy Armsrong, my 2x great-grandmother was born in Ross County, Ohio in 1809. One of my other great-grandfathers who lived in Hardin County,Kentucky served in Ohio in the War of 1812, then went to Indiana. Let me know if you find anything new. Bonnie Barnes Worley
