    • (1) Shinn, Josiah H., The History of the Shinn Family in Europe and America, Chicago, IL: The Genealogical and Historical Publishing Company, 1903, p. 114:

      [Note: There is some confusion in this source as to the given name of Leah SHINN's husband; i.e., whether it was George or John.]

      LEAH SHINN. . . .

      Leah, first child of Samuel and Abigail (Urie) Shinn, was born in New Jersey in 1741, and removed with her parents to North Carolina. In the will of her father she received, as did her sisters, certain gifts of personal properly, but no land. She married John [?] Crozine in North Carolina in 1758, and lived and died on Coldwater. [Note by compiler: According to p. 88 of the same source, The first name of Leah's husband was George.] John [?] Crozine died in April 1776, intestate, and Leah, his wife, and Isaac Shinn, her brother, were appointed executors by the Probate Court of Mecklenburg County. The lands of Samuel Shinn were first in Rowan, then Mecklenburg, and finally in Cabarrus. Concord stands upon a part of the old Shinn tract. Leah and John [?] left ten children, three sons and seven daughters. I have not found them all.

      Children of John and Leah (Shinn) Crozine:

      [i] Rachel Crozine.

      [ii] Abel Crozine.

      [iii] Levi Crozine.

      [iv] George Crozine.

      [v] Lydia Crozine.

      [vi] Abigail Crozine, named in her grandmother's will.
