Scope and Contents

Genealogical information compiled by the donor and documents of the Zinn family of north central West Virginia. The family is traced back to George Zinn, a German immigrant from Darstadt and a Revolutionary War veteran who settled after the American Revolution in Monongalia County. There is mention of various of his descendents, mainly West Virginians, but most of the information is on the line of the Civil War veteran George Harrison Zinn and his son Frank Garfield Zinn. Most of the documents are the financial records of George D. Zinn and his business transactions in the vicinity of Morgantown. There are a few other items on Morgantown history and a letter from John Malcom to William and Jane Wilson about land in the frontier Mid-West.
