I agree with everyone that it is probably a tree, but also agree with Jeff
and others that we need a transcription of the legal description in the deed
to be sure of it.

Subject: Re: [DMU] "Lynn" in deed m & b description
Linn appears to be referencing a tree, the American Basswood also called
the American Linden see this for reference and other names:
It still leaves the actual descrption to be sure it makes sense that
this is a tree.
In more than one instance I have come across "two yellow lynns" in a survey
in (West) Virginia - also done in the 1820s and 1830s. I'm pretty sure
refer to trees.
