Jennnifer, most of what you have is correct.

A couple of quick notes.

Fred M. Zorn was my grandfather. His wife's name was Fanny Elizabeth Thogmartin. Not Hanna. They were married from 1901 until her death in 1961. I can get the dates for you later. they had a son named Edwin Earl Zorn (4/14/21-11/16/04).

Interesting that you mention the name Greenlief as the middle name for my great grandfather, instead of Green. I only once ran across a document with that name on it. Bit the old aunts (Helen, Elizabeth)always told me that his real middle name was Greenlief. My father (Edwin) had never heard that name before. Everything else, even his signature on documents say Green. But I have been unsuccessful in finding a "Green" in the family. I have been looking for a Greenlief connection also, but unable to find it. Seems like it should have a family connection, being such an odd middle name.

Of Fred M's kids, you have one listed that does not exist. I cannot remember the name. There was Mildred (died of Spiromeningitis in college in about 1930), Helen Alberta, Catherine Elizabeth, Mary (died wheh her dress caught fire at age 6), and Edwin Earl, the youngest.

I think all you have of William Walter Zorn's family is accurate. I met Carter and several of the others over the years.

Thanks for the report. Will set me back to the very old books again to make some corrections.
