Re: Shinn book question
Also found the will of Frances Shinn of Springfield, NJ dated 1844.She was the widow of Isaac Shinn and Samuel Shinn.In it, she mentions her father David Vaughn and her brother Caleb Vaughn.She also mentions her children:Samuel E. Shinn, Sarah B. Shinn, John G. Shinn, Albert Shinn, Caleb B. Shinn, and Isaac Shinn.
Therefore, I am lead to believe that there was only one Frances Vaughn/Van.And she married Isaac Shinn, son of Asa Shinn and Sarah, between 1825-1827.And then she married his brother Samuel Shinn about 1840.
If anyone has anything to prove that there was a second Frances Vaughn who married Isaac Shinn, son of Ziba Shinn and Elizabeth, please let me know.I can find no mention of this couple anywhere except for the Shinn Book.
For now, I am going to assume that the wife of the latter Isaac Shinn is unknown.
