Here is a picture of the tombstone rubbing Cathy and I did of John Zinn. We first did the old tombstone as it won't last. We also did the back of the new stone that Uncle Brad and others had erected in front of the old stone. The tree depicted in the picture has an F at the bottom for Family. Then a B on one side of the tree for the boys and a G on the other side for the girls. Notice one branch on the boys side divides into two for the twins. The transcription reads "MEMORAL of JOHN ZINN CENIOR. BORND IN THE YEAR 1778. DIED IN THE YEAR 1848 age 70 y. (Words misspelled are exact to stone) John and Ruth (Gandy) Zinn.
