The descendants of the French Huguenot Gustav Agne & the Agne Huguenot refugees. This family is kin to the German Scheffe / Sheffey family.
Family history is history in microcosm: The Agné / Ankney Family
The saga of the Agné family is an incredible story. It is the story of the mass migrations of people in continental Europe during the 16th and 17th Centuries. It is also the story of 18th & 19th America, particularly the story of that idealology referred to as Manifest Destiny.
