Opis: The History of the Shinn Family in Europe and America (Classic Reprint) - Shinn Josiah Hazen

Excerpt from The History of the Shinn Family in Europe and America
To write the history of a family is a task surrounded by many difficulties. That history begins, as a rule, at a period when reading and writing were not the common heritage of mankind; it covers the lives of a line of people who, because they were not conspicuous in the world's affairs, failed to construct pedigrees, as did the greater men of history; it takes in a vast body of plain people, living by the nobler arts of peace and trade, who look with suspicion upon the blazoning of arms, crests, and pedigrees, and pass to the other extreme of keeping no record at all; it sweeps over periods of time engulfed in social, political or religious turmoil, when even the legal records are suspended; it embraces all kinds and conditions of men widely dispersed; for these and other reasons the creation of an accurate family history is difficult, if not impossible. I have tried to write such a history in these pages, and on the eve of giving it to the family at large, am free to admit that it is at best a very imperfect sketch. It represents years of labor, however, and is a creation that has absorbed my attention and affection. It is given to the family for their guidance and criticism. Wherever it is true it will obtain commendation; and wherein it departs from truth it will receive condemnation. It is launched with high hopes of a successful career.
At the outset I desire to acknowledge my indebtedness to Mr. Richard Cadbury, of Philadelphia, who copied for my use every reference in the Minute Books of the Burlington Monthly Meeting of Friends, the Springfield Minutes, the Chesterfield Minutes, the Mt. Holly minutes, the Evesham and Upper Evesham Minutes. Without these it would have been impossible to write the story.
I am also indebted to Hon. John Clement, of Haddonfield, for a thorough investigation of the Records at Trenton. N. J., and other places; the records of wills, deeds, administration papers, court minutes and marriage license records, so far as they refer to the name Shinn, were all transcribed by him and forwarded to me as a supplement to the church records prepared by Mr. Cadbury. Both these gentlemen have passed away, but their work appears in every line of this history for the period 1678-1800.
To Mr. Kirk Brown, of Baltimore, I am indebted for transcripts of the Minutes of Friends Meetings at Goose Creek, Crooked Run, Hopewell, Warrenton and Fairfax. Judge Thomas B. Jobes sent an abstract of the deed records of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Mr. Willit Shinn has gone among the living and obtained private records, which I could not obtain.
To a lesser degree I am indebted to Mrs. Mary Graham, of Miranda, N.C.; Mr. James F. Shinn, of Norwood. N. C.; Pfof. H.Frank Smith, Mr. J.C. Shinn and Dr. George W.Harkey, of Russellville. Ark.; to Dr. Quillen H.Shinn, of Cambridge. ;Mass.: to Irs. Hannah A. Beal. of Agricultural College, Mich.: to Prof. Samuel Grant Oliphant. of Baltimore. Md.: to James Thornton Shinn, of Philadelphia, Pa.; to A.C. Shinn, Ottawa, Kan.: to Benjamin G.v Shinn, Hartford City, Ind.; Rev. James Gallaher Shinn, Atlantic City, N.J.; to W. B.Stackhouse, Medford. X.d. and to Mrs. Marv Shinn Bennett, Fruit Hill, Ohio.
