 David, William Blinn is connected. I was amazed at the amount of work he had done on television and movies. I will add sources to profiles. I did some work on his profile, but I did not write a biography.https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Blinn-314

David, it looks like Johann Paul Blinn-119 is his 3rd great grandfather. If you would like for me to work on connecting him, I would be happy to.

Thank you N Gauthier, I was certainly impressed with the amazing quantity of writing William Blinn did. I have been a big television watcher through the years, so I was familiar with the many shows he had written. He caught my interest first with his parent’s names, Clare and Pearl, which is the same as my paternal grandparents, and I also have Blinn ancestors.
