Descendants of John Frederick and Anna Sophia (Schneider) Zinn. John, Anna and child, Philip Jacob Zinn, came to America from Germany in 1738 on the ship Glascow. They settled in the farming country of southeastern Pennsylvania, in York County. Soon, another son, John Nicholas, arrived; and by the mid-point of the eighteenth century, two daughters (Anna Catherine and Marie Margaret) had completed the family. From this German family of six, there are today perhaps 12 or more generations of Zinns, constituting thousands of Zinn descendants. Some surnames: BARTMESS, SPRENKLE, BEITZEL, HOOVER, NEWMAN, WELSCHANS, GRIMES, TARR.
