I know this post is old. but My grandmother was a Shinn. Her Grandfather was George Rizer Shinn. I have a bit of research, but when she passed away, my uncle took the house and locked all of us out. Therefore all information is with him, The will has never been through probate, so not sure whether we will ever see anything again.
Any information I can find would be greatly appreciated, and I am willing to share what I know and have.
Thanks - Brenda Brown
