Dear Ms.(pos. Cousin)Griffin- Yours is one of several observations that Nicholas Zorn came from Germany ca. 1700 to Orangeburg.
I am not challenging this, but it is open to question sans evidence. My brother-in-law, W. Harold Zorn did extensive research on his family in the early 1960s. Based on documents in the Charleston Historical Library he concluded that Nicholas (b. 1683
and died 1741) arrived in Charleston Harbour with 8 boatloads of German-SWISS immigrants. They went in to the Orangeburg District (now Orangeburg, Barnwell and Bamberg Counties).
Unfortunately, he did not identify the reference and he is now in his dotage. Even so, Switzerland is a viable optional point of origin for the Zorns descended ffrom Nicholas I and Caterina____.
I hope this will be helpful
