Places in Pennsylvania and Kansas Connected to Our Karns Families
Most of the early ancestors of our Karns family lived in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. Within that county, the majority lived in the Monroe, West Providence, and East Providence Townships. From this page you can take a look at those townships, and some of the churches that played a part in the lives of our ancestors in Pennsylvania.
Alva Karns brought the children still at home to Kansas in 1904, and after trying several places settles in the Ford, Kansas area. Two of his sons also lived there through all of their working years. They were Arthur Karns and Elmer Karns.
