I really canít help with anything other than the wife of James David Zorn and you may already this info. She was JOSEPHINE REBECCA CORBITT. She is not in my direct line but her father and mother are. Email me at if you wish.

JAMES DAVID2 ZORN (NICHOLAS) was born November 22, 1836 in Barbour County, AL, and died December 15, 1864 in Probably Nashville, TN. He married JOSEPHINE REBECCA CORBITT November 03, 1859 in AL, daughter of JESSE CORBITT and MARY MCKINNON. She was born January 29, 1838.

This taken from the writings of the late Wm A. Zorn of Jesup, Ga. "James David Zorn, son of Nicholas Zorn and Sarah Condry Zorn, was born in Barbour County Nov 22, 1836. He married Josephine R. Corbitt, daughter of Jesse W. and Mary E. McKinnon Corbitt and they had at least two children, Mary C. Zorn and Larkin J. Zorn. He was killed during the Civil War, probably at Nashville, Tenn. Dec 15, 1864"
He was evidently a member of the 29th Alabama Infantry Regiment, Company K. According to Steve Elliot, he was killed at the Battle of Peachtree Creek in GA. This location is about three miles north of Atlanta and Tanyard Creek Park occupies part of the battlefield.

Perhaps marriage to Samuel M. Duffle b: ABT 1846 in AL
Married: 29 Nov 1867 in Barbour Co,AL
Mary J. Duffle b: ABT 1871 in Barbour Co,AL
Eliza T. Duffle b: ABT 1873 in Barbour Co,AL
Mariah C. Ludie Duffle b: ABT 1875 in Barbour Co,AL
James A. Duffle b: ABT 1878 in Barbour Co,AL

Research by Mr. Len Boykin also documents a marriage to Mr. Duffell. I have now included his as her second spouse. He also documented that she is buried in River Falls cemetery, Covington County, AL.
       i.       MARY C3 ZORN, b. 1860.
       ii.       LARKIN J ZORN, b. September 25, 1862.
