I am attempting to find information on the following Varnes generations in the Juniata/Perry County, PA area.

John Werntz/Varns, born Lancaster County, PA in 1770, died 1837 in Buffalo Twp., Perry County, PA. Who was his wife? Who were his other children besides the following John?

son John Varns, born 1785. When and where did he die? He disappears from the area about 1841 with no record after that. He married Margaret Arnold, born 1793, died 1859 in Juniata County, PA.

Valentine Varnes was born Sept. 16, 1824, he married Liberty in 1855 or 56. thay had 5 children. Harry 1857, William 1859, Margaret 1864, John, & Mary.

My Varnes family line comes from Juniata County Pennsylvana. My Grandmother was Adda Jane Varnes oldest daughter of Williams Grafton Varnes,( Wm.Grafton Varnes settled in N.Dak. 1890s or early 1900s, apparently in Ward Co. in or near DesLacs. Buried w/2nd wife & children in DesLacs Cemetary. Believe Mary Emma Barnard was his first wife ) son of Mitchel H. Varnes of Juniata Co. Pennsylvana. The Varnes's and Arnold's were neighbors and Arnold sisters married Varnes brothers. I have some info
on the fimily and will share, Info for info.
