The Handbook of Texas Online,
http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online/index.html (search on Zorn) says that Zorn was named for Joseph Zorn, who had store there in the 1850s. A further entry for Max Starcke, who was born there, confirms that Zorn was formerly York Creek. However, Wise County, Texas is well north of York Creek/Zorn, near Fort Worth. Try searching the utexas site for "Wise County". Good Luck, Mary!
