George Washington Arnn was born in 1772 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. Some researchers
list his middle initial as 'M'. However, this is probably
an incorrect transcription of 'W'. He married Sarah Walker who was born to Elisha
and Judith (Kirby) Walker around 1784. By 1830 they and most of their children
had migrated to Henry Co., TN where she died in Jun 1849 followed by him on 11
Jul 1855. Most of the descendants of George and Sarah moved west and spell their
surname Arnn. Children of George Arnn Sr.: Henry Clay married Mary Ann Robertson,
George Jr. married (1) A. Frances Donaldson (2) Charlotte Lewry and (3) Louisa
V. Lankford, Abihu married Margaret Blair, Anadab married Eleanor Alexander, Ann
married John Walker, Judith married William M. Frazer, James Madison married Amanda
Bond, Frances 'Fannie' married John I. Crawford, John, Kitt and William. I descend
from Henry Clay Arnn. Henry Clay Arnn was born around 1799 according to the 1850
census. On 26 Nov 1825, he married Mary Robertson who was born around 1800 according
to the same census. Henry died after his father's will was probated on 7 Jan 1857
and before the census was taken in 1860. Mary was living with her son Crispin
in Henry Co., TN when the 1860 census was taken. She is listed as Mary D. aged
61 years born in NC. All of Henry's family moved to TN except George Washington
who lived in VA and NC. His descendants took the spelling Aron which later became
Aaron. Children of Henry Clay Arnn: George Washington married (1) Julina Witcher
and (2) Mary Frances 'Fannie' Haley, David married Ann Babb, Edward H. married
Letitia McFadden, Crispin married Mary Griffin and Anna/Frances 'Ann' married
James Parker. I descend from George Washington Aron.

Bruce James Aron was born 5 Aug 1864. His daughter, Elsie, wrote that her father
was born on 5 Aug 1860. However, according to the ages listed for him in the 1900
and 1910 censuses, he was born in 1864 or 1865. Some researchers have listed his
day of birth as the 15th. Since Elsie listed it as the 5th, it is assumed to be
the day on which the family celebrated his birth. On 26 May 1888, he married Susie
Clay Marlow. She was born to David Andrew Marlow and Nancy Elizabeth 'Betty' Hall
on 25 Mar 1872. They had eight children. Brucelived his entire life in the Grady/Callands
area of Pittsylvania Co., VA. He died on 4 Nov 1926 and Susie died on 3 Jan 1930.

I hope you find this information on the Aaron/ Arnn family interesting. As
you do your own research, keep in mind that things
are not always as they appear...especially the spelling of surnames.
