Linn appears to be a common surname in Alsenz -- and, it has been since the 13th century. Linns were listed among the town's residents when it was chartered in 12-something-or-other. Later, a Linn was the first sexton of Evangelical Church there when it became protestant a few years after Luther started the Reformation down river a bit at Worms. My part of the family immigrated as a group of brothers who "stole" a cousin's boat, which they took down the Nahe and the Rhein at night, hauling it into the weeds and hiding during the day to avoid conscription by Bismark's troops. This was before 1860. My great grandfather, Philipp, and at least one of his brothers, Ludwig, ended up in Cleveland. Philipp, Phillipp, Phillipe, etc., is a common name in our branch. Uncle Louie reputedly had fine, strawberry blonde hair, which is a family trait, and a long beard, which is not. Mrs. P. Linn was Louise (Lousia) Baum, also from Alsenz.
