Sollenberger ~ Bentz Lineage This site is best viewed at a 1280 x 800 screen resolution.
Our maternal grandmother Irene Wrightstone's parents were Edwin Wrightstone and Hattie Amelia Arnold. The marriage between Edwin and Hattie is how our Wrightstone ~ Arnold family history began.
Hattie was born to Annie Sollenberger and Luther H. Arnold. However, Annie didn't marry Luther. It is through Annie that our Sollenberger ~ Diller Lineage became part of our rich German heritage.
In 1890, when Hattie was eight years old, her mother Annie married Tobias Bentz. At the time, Tobias was already related to the Sollenberger line through Alice Sollenberger, which is another interesting story involving the Sollenberger ~ Bentz Families.
The photo histories of the Wrightstone ~ Arnold families, and the Sollengerger ~ Bentz family history, are probable the largest collection we have.
