Notes for JACOB ZINCK:

The Zinck family migrated from the war torn Germany in the early 1700's. The areas of Baden, Wuerttemberg and Bavaria had many people with the name "Zincke, Zinckh, Zink". Three Zinck brothers are listed in the 1790 US census. Early German immigrants ported the US in Pennslyvania, through Lancaster Co., onto Frederick, Md. down the Shenandoah Valley to about Roanoke, Va. Out of Virginia on the Old Carolina Road through the Maggoty Gap and then toward Salem and into Davidson County. It is believed that the earliest settlements were in the area between Abbotts Creek and Leonard's Creek. Now know as Old Pilgram Church. Jacob sailed to America on the Richard & Mary and was qualified on Monday Sept. 30, 1754 in Phil. PA.

When we were relieved and retired some three or four hundred yards and retired for the night. Early on the sixth, (the following morning) we were rushed upon by an overwhelming force and we were pressed back until General Longstreet's forces came to our assistance, we were then marched to the left and joined General Ewell's forces and remained in this position until General Grant flanked off to the left and having followed him parallely we then again met him again at Spottsylvania Courthouse, Virginina and having fought him for several successive days and punishing him severely he again flanked off to the left and having followed parallely we again met him at Hanover and fought them on May 23rd on the central railway and whipped them".
