Re: Found my Elizabeth CHINN, guess where!

Hello Gail,

First, congratulations. I've been following your CHINN searches with interest and wondered when Ohio was going to come into play. :)

We find FPOC CHINN's in KY as early as 1850 and those family lines migrated into Ohio following the Civil War. The below list is AA CHINN's in the Ohio 1870 Census.

The first gentleman listed Broadwell CHINN has the distinction of being the first person of color to attend and graduate from Wittenberg Univ. here in Springfield, Ohio.

Best wishes and continued good fortune in your CHINN research,

Art Thomas
