Johannes "John" PINN, born in Üxheim, Vulkaneifel, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany, was a son of Joannis Philippi PINN, also known as Johannis Phillip "Johann" PINN, of Üxheim, Vulkaneifel, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany and Veronica GIEFER of Leudersdorf, Vulkaneifel, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany.

Paternal grandparents were Tomas PINN of Schüller, Vulkaneifel, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany & Anna Helena GOERGEN of Üxheim, Vulkaneifel, Rhineland-Pfaltz, Germany.

Maternal grandparents were Johannis Nicolaus GIEFER of Ahrdorf, Blankenheim, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany and Anna Catharina MEYER/MEIER of Leudersdorf, Vulkaneifel, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany.

Johannes "John" PINN, his father and siblings, immigrated to the United States in 1881. His mother died in Germany.

His father, Joannis Philippi "Johann" PINN, was quoted in an article in Chicago's "Katholischen Wochenblat" [Catholic Weekly] Magazine" in 1881:

Der Ackerer Johann Pinn aus Üxheim verläßt die Heimat 1881: "Die Familie stand früher in ziemlichen Verhältnissen. Durch den Brand in Üxheim, dann durch Hagelschlag und die schlechten Ernten der letzten Jahre ist die Familie in ihren Vermögensverhältnissen ganz heruntergekommen."

Rough translation:

The farmer, John Pinn of Üxheim, who left the country in 1881, states: "The family was formerly in considerably good condition. By the fire in Üxheim, then by hail impact and poor harvests of the last years, the family has come down in its financial circumstances completely"."

His siblings include:
Bernardus "Bernard" PINN (b. 1847)
Antonius "Anton" PINN (b. 1849 - d. 1918)
