Research needed, is there a connection?:
There is probably a connection somewhere. My grandfather was Luther Loftin Frost of Colfax, Grant Parish, Louisiana. Born March 24 1909 - Died December 20, 1997 He was married to Willie Belle Preuett who was born in 1912 and died on January 4, 2000. Luther Loftin served in WWII in a Army unit. He was a tank repairman and saw action during the Battle of the Bulge. He worked as an Oldsmobile mechanic at the dealership in Alexandria until he retired. There are many Frost's in the Colfax area. His family did come from the Monroe/North Louisiana/Frost Town area. He had one son, Luther Jacob Frost, my father, who became Sr. when he named me Luther Jacob Frost Jr. As soon as possible, I'll get you his birth and death dates.

Johann Herman Arndt

[Spottswood, GED]: From a translation of Monika Rademacher's letter from the Hanau, Germany stadarchiv, edited by Barbara Frost:
"Herman comes (stems) from Nordhausen and stayed there himself, since he wrote from there, from the time of his marriage (until) 1721 when he moved to Ronneburg (in the vicinity of Hanau). Since he comes from there, it is more likely that his children were born in Ronneburg (except, as records show: Anna Maria and Jacob)."

"In the year 1721 the sheepherder (or sheepman) and horn maker (dreher=lathe) Herman Arnd applied for admission among the citizens of Old Town Hanau. At this time he already had four sons. Two of these sons married on February 26, 1733 in the Hanauen Church of Mary." [paragraphs reversed for timeline]

The Ronneburger (Evangelical Lutheran) Church records are found in the:
Parish Office Huttengess
Kirchengarten 1
6451 Ronneburg"

Family researcher Dennis Copeland wrote:
"Herman and Margretha's family must have left for Rotterdam within a few months of the weddings. The trip took several weeks down the Rhine and, then, they might have to wait days, weeks, months for passage. According to my sources, the ship passage took two to three months across the Atlantic." (See Sources)

Michael, Conrad, the women and the children are not listed.

Herman immigrated from Germany to American on the ship HOPE of London. With him were his wife, and children: Peter and wife, Michael and wife, Jacob and Anna Maria.

Some of the numerous name variations are: Arendt, Arnot, Arent, Ardt, Arnt, Arnet, Arnz, Ornt, Arentz, Arnds, Araont, Aurant, Ahrnd, Orent, Ahrent, Arant, Arrant etc.

A little knowledge of the meaning of "arrant":
arrant \AR-unt\, adjective: Thoroughgoing; downright; out-and-out; confirmed; extreme; notorious.
1. More deplorable is his arrant and compulsive hypocrisy . . .Under all the chest hair, he was a hollow man. --J. D. McClatchy, review of Crux: The Letters of James Dickey, New York Times

2. I think a pilot would be a most arrant coward, if through fear of bad weather he did not wait for the storm to break but sank his ship on purpose. --Georges Minois, History Of Suicide - translated by Lydia Cochrane

3. [T]he moon's an arrant thief, And her pale fire she snatches from the sun. --Shakespeare, Timon of Athens

4. The entire story is a load of arrant nonsense. --Victor Pelevin, Buddha's Little Finger , translated by Andrew Bromfield

Arrant was originally a variant spelling of errant, meaning "wandering." It was first applied to vagabonds, as an arrant (or errant) rogue or thief, and hence passed gradually into its present sense. It ultimately derives from Latin iter, "a journey."


Migerl Arndt

Migerl was 13 when she arrived in America on August 28, 1733.


Anna Maria Arndt

Brøderbund WFT European Origins Vol. E1, Ed. 1, Tree #0756, Date of Import: Apr 23, 2000

There is a copy of the baptismal record of the Reform Church of Mary 9 (marienkirche), Hanau on Main for Anna Maria, page 461:
"The Father is Herman Arndt, Burger and Pfeifendreher (whislt, fife-maker) in Vorstadt, the mother is Anna Margretha. The Godmother is Anna Maria Augst, Daughter of the Burger and Saddler Christian Augst." The child was named for her - Anna Maria.

Christened: November 04, 1721, Hanau(am) Main, Hesse, Germany
Emigration: Anna Maria was 12 years old when she arrived in America with her parents on August 28, 1733.


Johann Jacob Arndt

Brøderbund WFT European Origins Vol. E1, Ed. 1, Tree #0756
In the Baptismal Book of 1726 of the Reformed Marienkirche, Hanau on Main, the baptism for Jacob is recorded. It lists his day of birth and reads:
"The Father is Herman Arndt Burger and Hornmaker (Horndreher) in Neustadt, the Mother Anna Margretha, the Godparents Johann Jacob Konig Burger and Combmaker in Altstadt and his wife, the child to be called Johann Jacob."

Christened: December 29, 1726, Hanau(am) Main, Hesse, Germany

"THE SUGAR LOAF MASSACRE"
In part, from "Pennsylvania Frontier Soldiers in the Rev. War"
In the year 1780 the larger portion of Pennsylvania was open land, much entirely unsettled. Protecting the frontier, the farms and villages was almost impossible. There were many Tory sympathizers and spies in this area, even among the military ranks, that acted secretly conveying information of every American movement to the enemies of the struggling young country.
It seemed the savages and Tories always knew where SULLIVAN'S army would be as well as all other expeditions. They would simply lay in wait then swoop down to kill and massacre their unsuspecting victims.
These precalculated attacks grew to the extent that COL. HUNTER, in command at Fort Augusta (Sunbury, Pa.) decided to take action. CAPTAIN D. KLADER, of Northampton County, with a detachment of CAPTAIN JOHN VAN ETTEN'S Co. was ordered to Ft Augusta to assist. Included in this party was our ancestor CPL. SAMUEL BOND JR.
On Sept. 6, 1780, some 250/300 Tories & Indians made a vicious attach on Fort Rice, (Lewis Twp., Northumberland Co.) on the headwaters of the Chilisquake, approximately 17 mi from Ft Augusta. The siege was gallantly repulsed by CAPT. RICE'S Company of the German Continental Regiment. With relief arriving from COL. HUNTER the same enemy was forced to retreat, scattering in different directions, destroying everything in their way.
To one of these groups of enemy, numbering around 40, came word from the Tory spies that CAPT. KLADER'S small force was on it's way from Northampton. They immediately proceeded to the site of the present town of Berwick, crossing the river and following the path from the Susquehanna River to Northampton, a distance of about 7 miles from Nescopeck. Here, in the Sugar Loaf Valley, southwestern part of Luzerne Co, they lay in wait.
Meanwhile, CAPT. KLADER and his men, after toiling laboriously for days over the mountains and through the forest, reached the summit of Buck Mountain. Proceeding down the mountain, through a ravine, over the farm of N. WAGNER and across the creek below, they came to what had been a Scotch settlement, but now, because of the border trouble, wholly deserted. To their great delight they saw before them open and cleared fields, covered with a luxuriate growth of grass and beautiful with wild flowers. Weary as they were with the fatigue and hardship of their long march they seemed to have entered upon a veritable paradise.
It was noontide of September 11, 1870, knapsacks were immediately unslung, and they entered upon the enjoyment of the hour. The very beauty of their surroundings lulled to rest all thought of danger. Succumbed by a modern day "R & R" period the men lay or sat on the ground, one man was just leaning against a tree with his shoes off, cleaning them, others had gone for grapes, which grew there in abundance, and one climbed a tree and was eating the grapes from the vine.
Suddenly a volley of musketry was poured in upon them and with it rang out the terrible war-whoop of the savages, who, in a moment, were in their midst, hewing down their victims with the murderous tomahawk. Some escaped, a few were taken prisoner but most of them were killed.
Under the direction of COL. HUNTER, the bodies were gathered later and decently interred. This brave group of men lie buried on the farm of SAMUEL WAGNER, about half a mile from Conyngham, but no trace of the graves can now be seen. The oak tree, under whose branches CAPT. KLADER lay, and upon which were cut the initials of his name - D.K. - was sacrilegiously cut down and even the stump is now gone.
Killed at Nescopeck, in the Sugar Loaf Massacre were:
Capt. D. Klader; Corporal Samuel Bond Jr.;
Privates: John Weaver; Baltzer Snyder; John Kouts; George Peter Reinhart; Peter Croom; George Shilhamer; Paul Neely; Abraham Smith; Jacob Arndt; Philip George; James McGraw & Jacob Row.

The tragic death of these Pennsylvania-German volunteers was not taken lightly and soon
COL. HUNTER found it possible, without the threat of arms, to clear the Torie settlements from the area.
The story of "The Sugar Loaf Massacre", along with other battles on the American frontier, are now just another part of history but stories such as these will be relived many times over through the hearts of their descendants, including ours, the descendants of Samuel Bond Jr.

Subsequent to the above stories:
Mr. Duane Howard, descendant of Samuel Bond, III, s/o Lewis Bond, visited the area of the above Massacre. The town has erected a stone memorial for these gallant men... Also we understand they have a founders day play which reenact the details of the battle and is held ever year. An elder citizen and historian of the area wrote the play and many articles, covering the events of the war in their area, are available to tourists.

"On November 1, 1751
'Herman Arndt arrived in this country nineteen years ago from Hanau, with his three sons Peter, Michael, and Jacob and daughter Anna Maria. His son Heinrich, a stocking-weaver, arrived this year, and he seeks the other members of the family. He is living near the Reformed Church in Philadelphia.'

In order to see his brother Peter, Heinrich Arndt would have been faced with a journey of more than 400 miles, for Peter Arndt had been living in North Carolina for at least a year."


Johann Conrad Arndt

Conrod is first mentioned in the Rowan County, North Carolina records in the late 1750's and the early 1760's with his wife Elizabeth.

[Spottswood.GED]
He bought land near his brothers, Peter and Jacob, across Lynches Creek in what is now Kershaw County, South Carolina.


Johann Peter Arndt

In the Baptismal Book of 1726 of the Reformed Marienkirche, Hanau on Main, the baptism for Jacob is recorded. It lists his day of birth and reads,
"The father is Herman Arndt Burger and Horn maker in Neustadt, the Mother Anna Margretha, the Godparents Johann Jacob Konig Burger add Comb maker in Alstadt and his wife, the child to be called Johann Jacob."

In 1733 Peter immigrated to Philadelphia on the ship Hope of London. He was with his wife, Katrina, parents, and siblings Jacob, Michael, and Maria. [Spottswood, GED]

Family researcher Dennis Copeland of California writes:
"In 1750 Peter and Katrina (Catherine) moved to the frontier of Anson County, North Carolina. The family was Pennsylvania German ("Dutch"). Peter and Katrina settled on the future site of Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina.

Peter moved to Caraven County, South Carolina, between 1768 and 1771. Peter bought property which was located on both sides of the north spur of Lynches Creek (later Lancaster-Kershaw and Chesterfield Counties)."

In the book, Carolina Cradle, Settlement of the Northwest Carolina Frontier, 1747-1762, page 58, we read:
"Peter Arndt, unlike most of his countrymen, had apparently become associated with the English and Scotch Irish. His house was located near several springs on the site of the future town of Salisbury."

In the History of Anson County, North Carolina 1750-1976, page 22, by Mary Medley, it is written:
"The Colonial Records give an account of a Thursday - Friday, May 26-27 meeting in 1756 of chief justices and principal gentlemen with King Hagler and fifteen warriors. The group went to the house of Peter Arrant, ordinary keeper [inn keeper] in Salisbury."

The warriors were Catawba Indians.
Between 1753 and 1755 his house was used as a meeting place for the county court.

Researcher Copeland complied this list of books and records that contain information about Peter.
