In locating DTP (Definitive Tangible Proof) of Arney existence in Montgomery County, PA. here it is:

1732 - Frederick ERNIGH - Ship, Pennsylvania Merchant at Philadelphia
1732 - Frederick EMY - Oath of Allegiance at Philadelphia
1737 - Frederick EARNEY - Land Patent, Douglass Township (Philadelphia County) Montgomery County was created on 10 September 1784 out of land that was originally part of Philadelphia County.

His son, Jacob ERNIE married Anna Barbara Linsenbigler 1764 New Hanover Lutheran Church (Philadelphia County) and surname is recorded as, ERNE

Their son, Daniel, born 1774 New Hanover married Susanna Wisler 1796 in Perkiomen Township (Montgomery County). Surname is recorded as, EVE.

Daniel and Susanna, moved to Fairfield County, Ohio in 1800 and are recorded as ARNEY.

From that time afterward, the original immigrant, Frederick ERNIGH, family line used/uses the surname, ARNEY.

Barbara Earney, Douglass Twp, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania 1779 (page 20).

Widow Earney, Douglass Twp, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania 1783 (page 543).

Jacob ERNE died 1776 in New Hanover Township (Philadelphia County), PA

From the New Hanover Lutheran Church records:
Frederick Erne, born 2 August 1776, son of widow Erne, was baptized October 1776. (No specific baptism date, just 'October', nor are the godparents are listed.)

Jacob's date of death is calculated from that listing.
His name is not recorded in the church death records, nor is his burial location known.

Jacob is still living in 1774:
Daniel Erne, son of Jacob Erne and Anna Barbara Linsenbiegler, born 23 May 1774, was baptized 4 September 1774 from the New Hanover Lutheran Church. Daniel's godparents were Daniel and Elizabeth Linsenbiegler.

Then to Tax records:
From the PA tax rolls, we know that Jacob owned 100 acres in Douglass Twp, Philadelphia Co, PA in 1769. He was still there on 19 Nov 1772. Anna Barbara replaced him on the tax rolls in 1779.

Re-marriage:
Anna Barbara Linsenbigler Erne married Adam Luckart on November 9, 1784 from Falkner Swamp Reformed Church (Montgomery County), PA.

Confirmation record:
Friedrich Erne, age 15, was confirmed in the Lutheran faith 22 April 1791 in New Hanover Lutheran Church, son of Adam Luckhard, on Easter Sunday, with 1st communion on 24 April 1791, Rev. Weinland. Friedrich was confirmed the same day as his brother, Daniel Erne, age 17. (NOTE: Adam Luckhard would be Frederick and Daniel's step-father.)

Jacob's sons, Daniel and his wife Susanna Wisler, and Frederick, along with Adam and Anna Barbara Luckhard all ended up in Fairfield County, OH in the early 1800's. Daniel and Frederick are recorded with the last name ARNEY.

Jacob's parents, Frederick and Anna Marie ERNIGH were German Reformed, the Linsenbiglers were Evangelical Lutheran, and Jacob and Barbara Erne's son, Daniel, was baptized, confirmed, and died an Evangelical Lutheran, being buried in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
