Gee, Marilyn, I've seen this often enough to never question that it's a
tree, but I couldn't find it in my dictionary. I've seen it spelled linn
and lynn. Mr. Google had the answer, though. The basswood tree is called
the lime tree in England. There are 3 or 4 North American species of
basswood, where it is also known as linden, linn, white linn, among others.
Its wood is a favorite for carving.

Subject: [DMU] "Lynn" in deed m & b description
I found the words "two lynns" in some deeds entered in the
Tennessee. There is an entry for "linn" in the dictionary which means a
pool or collection of water, especially below a fall of water, a waterfall,
or a steep ravine or precipice. I had not seen this term before.
