My connection is to the Shinn side. John Jefferson Shinn would be my 1C3R with our most recent common ancestors Levi Shinn and Ellen Walker. My grandmother Treva Adele Shinn 19 Dec 1894-6 Jan 1936, who was d/o Franklin Monroe Shinn 31 Aug 1865-1 Nov 1935, who was s/o Levi William Shinn 16 Aug 1843-20 Feb 1885, who was s/o Levi Shinn abt 1810.
The line goes back to John Shin Sheen, Sr., 20 Nov 1632-17 Apr 1712 who arrived in Colonial America from England in 1678. Please see http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&d...
