I am a direct descendant of old George, 1742.
I am sure that all the Zinns in America had a common ancestor somewhere in Germany or maybe in France before the migration of the Zannes To Hesse in the 1500s where they took up the German spelling of the name. Thus George was not the first Zinn in America.
No disrespect intended. Only one man's opinion. DZ
