There are several mysteries in the Zornes family line that I hope we can solve together as the collective Zornes family.

I have started this study because there is so much confusion about where this line started--who married whom and which children belong to which couple, etc. I found found very few primary sources for this line. It has so far been based on conjecture and a pedigree from Family Search (with no sources). There are multiple profiles on WikiTree that probably need merging, but this cannot be done until the pedigree is sourced.

If this is one of your surnames, please consider helping to sort this line out and please add the category for this name study to each of your Zornes/Zorns/Zorn profiles.

Main Locations: Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana

Clean up needed

This profile needs either the parents removed or the wife removed. Martin who was married to Nancy is not the son of Andrew and Abigail Martin Zornes


1) What is the correct surname of the wife of Martin Zornes or Martin Zornes?

    • Is it Stout or Greer?
      • After several hours of comparing Zornes DNA, I have concluded the correct surname is Stout based on a very strong presence of Stouts from New Jersey in the Zornes DNA group. There is absolutely zero presence of the surname Greer. McBeth-165 02:01, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
    • Is she Catherine Stout Greer, Catherine Van Dyke Stout, or Catherine Stout

2) Who is the mother of Martin Zornes born 1753?

Duplicates needing to be merged

As information is found and mysteries are solved, these duplicates need to be merged:

  1. Martin Zornes and Martin Zornes
  2. Catherine Stout Greer, Catherine Van Dyke Stout, and Catherine Stout
  3. Andrew Zornes and Andrew Zornes Completed
