Randy Seaver's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun for this week-A Prolific Dad
Your mission for Father's Day, if you decide to accept it, is to:1) Determine who is one of the most prolific fathers in your genealogy database or in your ancestry. By prolific, I mean the one who fathered the most children.
My winner for this is Johann Jacob Arner-my 5th Great Grandfather with 12 children with his wife, Magrete Kern.
the children were Nicholas(my 4th Great Grandfather), Michael Peter, Eva, Johannes Abraham, Johann George, Susanna, Margaretha, Elizabeth, Henry John, Johann Jacob, there was Catherine born in 1775. It looks like she did not live and they had another Catherine born in 1784. All of these children were born in Northampton County, Pennsylvania
