Turn left onto Upper Bellbrook Road, the beautiful brick home at 1630 Upper Bellbrook Road is on the 1855 Township map as the farm and orchard of John Ginn, here is his obituary:

John Ginn, farmer, was born on the place on which he now resides, February 24, 1815, and is a son of Thomas and Rachel (Neal) Ginn. His father was born in Ireland; his mother in Kentucky. When a young man, his father emigrated to America, and located in Kentucky, where he was married to Rachel Neal. Several years after-in 1814-he came to this county, and located where our subject now lives, purchasing one hundred acres of wild military land. He was successful in life, and accumulated enough to enable him to live comfortably and pay for his land, which cost him $250, and is now worth $10,000. A year previous to his death he removed to Xenia, where he died at the age of eighty-four years. Mrs. Ginn died in 1830, in the prime of her womanhood. They were the parents of fourteen children, of whom three are living: Robert, John, and Ann. Our subject was raised on the farm, and in 1838 married Jane Hamilton, who has borne him four children, two of whom are living: Rachel, and James H. The deceased are William and Thomas W. After his marriage he worked for some years at different places, and finally purchased the old homestead. He owns one hundred and fourteen acres of land. Mr. and Mrs. Ginn are members of the United Presbyterian Church, with which they have been connected for many years. His parents were members of the old Seceder Church.
