See Gerber, Adolf. "Emigrants from Wuerttemberg: The Adolf Gerber Lists." Edited by Donald Herbert Yoder. In The Pennsylvania German Folklore Society [Yearbook], vol. 10 (1945), p194.

This has Barbara Arnold arriving in Pennsylvania in 1754, with her sister Anna Catharina. The "primary immigrant" is listed as Maria Arnold (their mother?).

The various compiled genealogies, which have Johann Nicolaus & Anna Maria (nee Spatz) as parents to Anna Barbara, indicate that Anna Maria died in 1746. I found a record through FamilySearch.org, which shows Anna Maria's death on 23 Dec 1746.

All of this raises further questions. Clearly Anna Maria (nee Spatz) Arnold, who lived from 1686 until 1746, is not the mother of the two immigrant women. Is the "primary immigrant" Maria, on the 1754 record, the mother of Anna Catharina and Barbara?

Two things bother about this profile:

(1) The parents. They both have male names, and the both were 50 years or older when she was born (OK for a father, but very unlikely for a mother).

(2) The project designation. If she was born in Germany in 1738 and emigrated to Pennsylvania, I don't see how she could be part of the William Penn project, since the temporal scope of that project ends before 1700. She would have arrived in Philadelphia on an immigration ship, probably in the 1740s (normally this would be with parents) or 1750s. That places her squarely in the scope of the Palatine Migration, so I added that template.

Arnhold-3 and Arnholdin-1 appear to represent the same person because: Barbara Arnhold (a.k.a. Arnold) appears to be the same person as Barbara Arnholdin.

I've never seen it used this way ("Arnholdin"), but "in" is a German suffix that can change a noun from masculine to feminine, usually (in my experience) in occupational titles. For example, you'd address a male doctor as "Herr Doktor" but a female doctor as "Frau Doktorin". It could be a matter of regional or archaic usage to apply "in" as a suffix to a woman's surname at birth to differentiate it from her husband's surname. I originally listed Barbara as "Barbara Arnold" and kept trying to figure out how someone who was married into a distinctly German family could have what sounded to me like an English name; "Arnhold" made a lot more sense once I came across that spelling!
