All I know about my family's history is that when my great-grandfather's family arrived in America, the surname was Von Zorn, and that our family was originally from the Prussian province of Germany. It was later shortened due to anit-German sentiment. My relatives lived in New York, the Long Island and Queens regions. My great-grandfather was named Carl John Zorn and he married Eugenie Laird. If anyone has any information, please let me know.
