10501 The following is copied from Graham Minter's Minter Story, June 2012:
Robert married Alice Newson in Orford on 9 January 1748/9, although both were living in Sudbourne at the time. We are aware of two children, Mary, who was baptized twice, first in Iken on 10 September 1749 and then in Sudbourne on 29 October of that year, and Robert, baptized in Iken on 9 August 1752. On 23 September 1751, the parish of Sudbourne issued a settlement certificate to the parish of Iken assuming full responsibility for Robert, Alice and Mary. It is possible therefore that Mary's second baptism in Sudbourne was related to their desire to be accepted as residents of that parish. However, Alice died soon afterwards and Robert then married Mary Morske or Morslee in Sudbourne on 12 May 1755. We are aware of three children: Elizabeth (bap 20 June 1756), Jane (bap Sudbourne 20 November 1756) and Ann (no baptism found). In the settlement certificate, Robert is described as a "husbandman". A husbandman was a free tenant farmer or small landowner, with a social status below that of a yeoman. Robert died in 1793 and was buried in Sudbourne on 19 December of that year. He left £50 to his daughter Mary, wife of William Read of Sudbourne, £20 and a freehold messuage or tenement in Orford to his daughter Elizabeth, wife of Noah Salmon of Friston, "copyhold tenement and appurtances holden on the manor of Sudbourn" and £10 towards a court fine and fees to his daughter, Jenny, (whom we presume to be the same person as Jane above), wife of Robert Wilkinson of Woodbridge, and £30 to John Woods, son of his late daughter Ann, the wife of William Woods of Woodbridge, to be received when he reached the age of 21.

The 1790 Suffolk Poll Book has an entry under Sudbourn (Plomesgate) for Robert Minter of Orford. (Source, UK, Poll Books and Electoral Registers, 1538-1893). This entry probably refers to this Robert Minter.

Minter, Robert (I15)
10502 The following is copied from Graham Minter's Minter Story, June 2012:
Robert senior died at the age of 54 and was buried at Eyke on 30 May 1711. He left a will, dated 26 April 1711 in which he left his 'messuage or ..Eyke' to his wife Sarah. At the time the property was tenanted by John Cutting. On Sarah's death the property was to pass to Robert's daughter Hannah 'and her heirs for ever' but if Hannah had no heirs the property would pass to Robert's son Robert 'and his heirs for ever'.
Bequests were made as follows: to son John £5; to daughter Mary £5; to daughter Sarah LUFF forty shillings - these lagacies to be paid within 12 months of Robert's decease. To son Robert £5; to daughter Hannah £5 - these legacies to be paid on reaching the age of 21.
The rest of Robert's estate was to be given to his wife on condition that 'she keep and provide for my two younger children until they attain to their age of one & twenty years'. Sarah was to be the sole executrix of the will.
An inventory of Robert's goods taken on 11 June 1711 valued the goods at £63.
As Hannah died less than one year after Robert, and left no heirs, we assume that the property passed to Robert junior."

10503 The following is extracted from an excerpt from 'A Few Old Franklin Families', which can be found at Ancestry via the Davis Family Tree (and others):
"John James [Trabue] ... married Olympia Dupuy, a grandaughter of the famous Huguenot, Bartholomew Dupuy. These have many descendants, many of whom have long been located in Kentucky, and particularly the line of John James Trabue. His wife, Olympia Dupuy, Born Nov. 12, 1729 lived with her younger daughters, in Franklin at one time and was a member of the Forks church. She died in her ninety third year, at the home of her son Edward Trabue, in Woodford KY. ??????? " 
DUPUY, Olympia (I380)
10504 The following is extracted from an excerpt from 'A Few Old Franklin Families', which can be found at Ancestry via the Davis Family Tree (and others):
"The Trabues, who so long resided at "Weehawken", were of distinguished Huguenot ancestry. The first of the family in America was Antoine Trabue a native of Montabaun,** France, and a member of the Huguenot church there, who being compelled to flee from France on the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, found refuge from religious persecution in the Huguenot colony at Lausanne, Switzerland, from whence he came to the French settlement in America, located at the old Indian Manakin-town, on James river, above Richmond, Virginia, where he died in 1724, aged fifty-seven years. After his death, his wife, Magdalen, married Pierre Chastain.

**In the possession of Mrs. Z. F. Smith, a direct decendant of Antoine Trabue, is a copy in French, of the church letter given to him on his departure from France, signed by the Pastor and deacons, translated as follows: "We, the undersigned, certify that Antoine Trabue, native of the city of Montauban, twenty or nineteen years of age, dark chesnut hair, having a small cicatrice under the left eye, has always professed the reform religion, just as his parents did, without his ever having committed any scandal that has come to our knowledge, other than that which the violence of the late persecutions in France have caused him to commit; which God has given him the grace to abandon, and for which he has made reparation. We recommend him to the divine Providence and to the love of our brethren.
Done at Lausanne, this 15th day of September 1689.
Verhers, formerly minister of the church of Dittemare and of Montauban.
Balli, pastor of the church in Langueduc, and five Deacons."

TRABUE, Antoine (I381)
10505 The following is extracted from the Davis Family Tree:
"John was a Patriot during the Revolutionary War and all five of sons old enough to bear arms served as officers. Olympia also gave patriotic service and both she and John James are listed in the DAR Patriot Index.
This information was taken from the book: The Trabue Family in American. 1700-1983, compiled by Julie Trabue Yates and Charles C. Trabue, IV, M. D." 
TRABUE, John James (I379)
10506 The following is from an email from Sally Bruce, April 2015:

"Thank you for the details of John Wyvill's marriage to Charlotte Hopewell. I knew the date and place but nothing about the witnesses. I expect Samuel Hopewell was perhaps, her brother? Was this a website of Parish Records? Regarding the location of London, I viewed the tree of one of my contacts on Genes R. back in 2010 and saw an interesting note regarding Charlotte Hopewell which roughly reads "Father John had a fine singing voice and people came from miles to hear him. He had 3 daughters who he referred to as the 'Three Graces' Charlotte also had a fine singing voice. Father John composed the hymn "Old Mansfield". Charlotte went to boarding school in London, and married John against her parents wishes". I thought this was quite detailed information about a family way back in the 18thC and so I asked him where it came from but he replied that he could not remember which of his contacts had sent it so I don't know whether or not it is true!

I have never been able to find a death record for Charlotte Hancock nee Wyvill, either. However, I came across a website for the burial records of Castle Gate Chapel in Nottingham where they worshipped. On the list was a death for a Charlotte Hancock, age 48, 18th August 1845. The dates fit so hopefully , its correct. Charlotte Wyvill nee Hopewell, was listed too, age 73, 16th February 1842."

Further email from Sally on 5 May 2015:
" Charlotte Hopewell, I have now found a baptism record ( on FreeReg) for a Charlotte Hopewell as follows: baptism at the " Old Meeting (Presbyterian) Church", Mansfield, Notts, parents "Jno and Ann Hopewell"."
In a subsequent email a few days later Sally writes:
" I missed the date of Charlotte's baptism record ( on FreeReg). It is 31 January 1769 at the Old Meeting ( Presbyterian) House, Mansfield. I had another look at my tree and saw that I had Charlotte Hopewell born 3 January 1769 in Beeston ( suburb of Nottingham) Notts. but this was just taken from other people's trees. Someone did have her born in Bridlington 1769, which I suppose would link with John Wyvil's birthplace of Filey. However, I can't find any other birth for a Charlotte born around that time other than the FreeReg record in Mansfield but maybe, I'm reading too much into the "Old Mansfield" hymn writer connection! Its all rather confusing so I doubt whether I shall ever find out."

1841 census: Charlotte WYVILL aged 70, independent means born Nottinghamshire, and Ann HATCH (15) formed one of many separate households within Collins Hospital, St Peter Nottingham. Sally Bruce writes:
" Collins Hospital was actually an Almshouse of 24 houses founded by Abel Collins of Nottingham (history and drawings are online). I presume Ann Hatch would be a carer/servant. Apparently, they were demolished in the 1950s along with other interesting buildings in the area."

April 2017: email from Peter Hancock giving details found at of Charlette's parents' marriage and christenings of her siblings. Peter comments:
"I too heard the story about the 3 Graces and the hymn "old Mansfield" I think I got this from someone researching the Wyvill family but I can't be sure." 
HOPEWELL, Charlotte (I3275)
10507 The following is from's WW1 pension records:
Henry joined the Coldstream Guards on 22 April 1918, aged 26 years 10 months. Prior to enlisting he was a police constable in the Surrey Constabulary. He got to Lance Corporal and was discharged on demobilisation on 31 March 1920. He gave his address as 45 Maybury Road, Woking, Surrey.

Whilst still a police constable, Henry played a part in the 1924 'Blue Anchor Hotel Byfleet poisoning' See for details of the case.

October 2012: James Earley sent the following, which appeared in The Dover and East Kent News on Friday 17 July 1931:
A Dover man, Mr H Minter, has been appointed Superintendent of the Hersham Division of the Surrey County Constabulary. Mr Minter was promoted Inspector not quite two years ago, and his latest step is due to Supt. W H Bird, whom he is succeeding, having been appointed Deputy Chief Constable of Surrey. Mr Minter, who joined the Surrey Constabulary in 1912, and was promoted Sergeant in 1925, was the son of the late John Stephen and Susan Minter, of Tower Hamlets. He was for several years, as a youth, employed by Messrs Palmer and Sons, of Dover. Dover can be proud of Mr Minter's rise in such an important Force as the Surrey Constabulary.

10511 The following is from Stephen Hunsley's work on the Hunsley family:
When he was 9 yrs old, the family moved to a farm at Cisco, Illinois. George Howard came to Stilson, Iowa on August 22, 1898, and spent most of his years in the vicinity. He was active in the work of the Evangelical United Brethern Church in Stilson. Was a member of the "Stilson Quartet" for 30 years. Other members were: Emory Long, Fred Hunsley and Ernest Galbraith.
Howard helped the late William Nall stake out the Boone Township cemetery, East of Stilson in the year 1900, and it was his request that he be buried there. He lived in Corwith with his sister Mary Emily, who died August 1936.
Lived in Britt, before going to make his home at Rest Haven home in Mason City, where he was being cared for, and it was there that he passed away. He never married. He was laid«b» «/b»to rest in the cemetery, Boone Township, East«b» «/b»of Stilson, Iowa.

10517 The following is from the online Australian Dictionary of Biography:
KING FAMILY: JOHN (1820-1895), WILLIAM ESSINGTON (1821-1910), and ARTHUR SEPTIMUS (1827-1899), pastoralists, were born at Parramatta, the second, third and seventh sons of Commander «u»Phillip Parker King «/u» and his wife Harriet, née Lethbridge. John and William went to England with their parents in 1822. In 1829 Harriet returned to Sydney with William and three other sons.
John (b. 9 January 1820) ended his schooling in England and at 17 returned to Sydney. He soon joined his brothers, «u»Philip «/u» and William, at Gidleigh station which his father had bought in 1834 near Bungendore for about £600. In 1839 John took up a lease near Lake George and in 1841-43 held Ajamatong in the Maneroo district. From the high country he had glimpses of Gippsland which he described as an 'Australian paradise'. Among the first to settle there, he bought the rights of Fulham Park run (near Longford) in 1842. He sold out in 1846 and with Holt, Croft and Tooth formed John King & Co. and bought the rights to Snake Ridge station. By 1854 the firm had acquired the Scarne and Rosedale runs, a total of 106,000 acres (42,897 ha) running 7000 cattle. King had started with sheep but turned to cattle, fattening them for the market in Van Diemen's Land.
In November 1855 John was elected for Gippsland to the Legislative Council and after responsible government to the Legislative Assembly until he resigned in September 1857. He was also one of the first magistrates on the bench at Alberton. At Rosedale on 20 January 1853 he had married Marianne Peck. She died on 1 August 1863 and he went to England where in London on 27 October 1864 he married Antoinette Stretanus, daughter of Rev. Dr Henry Geyle of the Dutch Church in Austin Friars. On their return to Victoria they lived at Nambrock, Rosedale, where in 1882 as 'Tanjil' he wrote his early reminiscences in «i»Our Trip to Gippsland Lakes and Rivers«/i».
At Rosedale John was a founder of the Mechanics' Institute, and a trustee and chairman of the Board of Guardians of St Mark's Church of England which was built in 1867 on land given by the family. In 1875-83 he served on the Rosedale Shire Council and was president in 1877-78. He also acquired the Mairburn property where he established a vineyard and lemon plantation, and with William gave land for a church at near-by Metung. His health failing in 1892 he made his home at Chislehurst, Hawksburn. He died there on 24 January 1895 and was buried in the St Kilda cemetery. He had two sons and three daughters by his first wife and a son and daughter by his second.
William Essington (b. 8 September 1821) was educated in Sydney. At 16 he worked at Gidleigh and then on the runs of John King & Co. In 1852-59 he was a gold commissioner on various fields in New South Wales. In 1859-63 he and Arthur ran a stock and station agency in Bourke Street, Melbourne; their first recorded sale was 176 bullocks from John King & Co. In 1864 Essington managed John's Sydney Cottage station. At Rosedale he was a trustee and secretary of the Board of Guardians at St Mark's. In 1869 he served on the first Rosedale Roads Board and when it became a Shire Council in 1871 he was elected president. He returned to Melbourne in 1872 and engaged in business pursuits, among them a directorship of the Colonial Mutual Fire Insurance Co. in 1891-1906. In 1895 he briefly managed Bayley's Reward Reef mine at Coolgardie. An active Anglican, he was a lay canon of St Paul's Cathedral in 1875-1908. On 27 April 1854 he had married Christiana Sarah, eldest daughter of William Edward Riley; they had eight sons and three daughters. Predeceased by his wife on 26 October 1886, he died at his home, Tregeare, Armadale, and was buried in the St Kilda cemetery.
Arthur Septimus (b.9 February 1827) was educated in Sydney. In 1842-54 he worked with John in Gippsland and then returned to New South Wales. In 1859 he joined Essington in their stock and station agency in Melbourne. He leased properties in Gippsland and Hawkesview station near the Murray which he later bought and which was managed by his second son Baron Albert (1864-1936). In 1863 Essington was replaced in the agency by V. Cunningham. They leased some 150 acres (61 ha) at Ascot Vale, known later as King's paddock, where they agisted cattle from Queensland and Gippsland before sending them to Newmarket sale-yards. When Cunningham retired, Arthur's sons, Alan and Ernest, entered the firm which became A. S. King & Sons and later King Sons & Ballantine (now Australian Estates).
Always top-hatted when selling, Arthur was a notable figure and foremost among Victorian agents. For thirty years he was a local director of the Australian Mutual Provident Society, and in 1884-89 a director of the National Bank of Australasia. In New South Wales on 15 July 1857 he had married his cousin, Elizabeth Margaret Lethbridge (d.1919); they had six sons and four daughters. From 1863 the family lived at Madford, Kew, and attended Holy Trinity where Arthur was for years a churchwarden. He died on 28 September 1899 and was buried in the family grave.

KING, John (I1086)
10518 The following is rather speculative but appears logical. It explains why Henry Minter has been attched to Hannah as an adopted child.

«u»As a widow«/u», Hannah appears in three early censuses, as a nurse at the Union Workhouse, Old Windsor, Berkshire, the master of which was William Nicholls. In 1841 Hannah's age was given as 50; in 1851 as 59, occupation nurse in St Georges Hospital, birthplace Isle of Thanet; and in 1861 her age was said to be 70 and her birthplace, St Peters, Kent.
Hannah also appears in the 1871 census, aged 82, a widow with no occupation, living at 76 Picton Street, St Giles Camberwell, London. She died age 84 in Q3 1873 (Camberwell 1d/416).

On 4 December 1878, a Henry Minter, full age, bachelor, watchman of 227 Beresford Street, married Mary Jane Stout, full age, same address. Henry didn't give a proper father's name, just 'Minter, shoe-maker' and it was difficult to work out who he was. The mystery was deeper because at the 1881 census, Henry, 33, a watchman, gave his birthplace as Old Windsor. Windsor is not a place from which Minters have originated.

Three things are significant:
1. Hannah worked in the Windsor Workhouse in 1841 and 1851.
2. Henry Minter said he was born in Old Windsor
3. In the 1871 census, on the line below that for Hannah Minter we find Henry Smith, aged 26, born Windsor, both living in the same house in Picton Street, St Giles, Lambeth.

Everything points to Hannah having in some way adopted or to her at least becoming responsible for Henry. It's unclear why for decades Hannah referred to herself as a widow but this may have been a device to hide something. Perhaps Henry was actually her child although this is unlikely given Hannah's age when Henry was born.

Chris Horgan, Australia (who has Hannah in his tree) adds " Something must have happened to have her tending to the Henry Smith child. She may have given a promise to a dying mother, (who may have been a friend), that she would take the child and raise him."

Minter, Hannah (I35)
10519 The following is reproduced with permission of Fred Haskins:
«/u»«/i»Alfred John Haskins was born at Tamworth Base Hospital on 10«sup»th«/sup» August, 1924 to Albert and Ella Haskins. He had one brother Herbert and two sisters Mary and Joyce. Mary is the only surviving member of the family today.
Alf grew up on "Green Hill" farm and attended Duri Primary School. He went to boarding school at Hurlstone Ag College in Sydney which he often said that this was one of the best times of his life. On completion of his studies there he did some work at the Glen Innes Ag Research Station and returned home to Duri to work on the farm with his father and brother. It was real work and the days were long and hard. Twelve hour shifts on the open tractor were normal.
Having a brother like Herb as you could imagine there was always a competition or a joke being played on someone. Alf used to tell the story of the bicycle race he had with Herb. When they were young men they would ride their bicycles across to Nemingha or Dungowan to play tennis. One day on their return trip from Dungowan, apparently the challenge was on as they reached the summit of Moffat's hill to see who could get home first. The only obstacle in the way was travelling through the Duck-under. In those days you could not drive a car through, but you could ride a bike or walk through if you ducked your head, hence the name "The Duck-under". So the race started and down the hill past Kay's they raced, neck and neck, neither was backing off and both as determined as each other. Herb pulled slightly in front as they reached the entrance to the Duck-under, he remembered to duck alright but he forgot that he had his tennis racquet stuck down the back of his shorts. The racquet caught the top of the Duck-under and threw him to the ground along with his bike. Making the most of the opportunity Alf rode straight past without stopping, continuing up to the house. Fifteen or so minutes later Herb arrived home battered and bruised to be greeted by his joyful brother who with a smile from ear to ear asked "What kept you?" Alf relived that race many times.
They worked together for 12 years and then Alf bought "Hemingstone" farm from his mother in the late 1940's and went out on his own. Alf purchased his first mob of sheep from Keith Rixon who lived on the farm next door and his interest in sheep and fat lambs continued on throughout his farming career.
He worked long and hard, never wasted anything got his farming plant together and the next step was to get married. He met Colleen Larkins who used to work at Thibaults which in those days you could buy groceries, farm equipment etc. They married in 1952 and he brought her home to "Hemingstone" to start their new life together.
They were having a lot of snake trouble at the time. Colleen being from town was fairly scared so Alf reassured her that everything would be OK as long as she could use a shotgun. He introduced her to the double barrel, gave her a lesson how to load it, how to aim and thought he had explained it all pretty well. The only thing he didn't tell her was that when she pulled the trigger the blast would send her backwards 10 or 12 feet throwing her to the ground with an instant bruise on her shoulder and arm the size of a large rockmelon. Colleen survived to laugh about it and they both participated in many practical jokes throughout their years. After Colleen passed away in 1987 Alf carried on making jams and providing produce for all the community stalls that Colleen had been involved with. He continued his friendship with Colleen's father Teddy Larkins calling on him weekly for many years supplying him with veggies, wood for his fire, meat and most of all company. Teddy who had daughters, often said that Alf was the son he never had.
Alf and Colleen had two sons, John and Kevin. Both John and Kevin use to call him the detective, for no matter what they did or what they tried to hide, somehow Alf would find out. Although most of the time they both were fairly well behaved, on occasions they did cause Alf some grief but we will keep those stories for another time.
Alf's two grandchildren, Lauchlan and Louise reckon that Alf was the best babysitter that they ever had. Kevin and Ruth went out one evening and left Alf in charge. He promptly went to sleep on the lounge giving Lauchie and Louise ample time to run amuck , they pulled everything out of every cupboard in the house and scattered everything from one end of the place to the other. When Kevin and Ruth arrived home they thought the place had been ransacked. They woke Alf and thanked him for his time. Alf said 'No worries they were no problem"
Alf was tall and strong, extremely fit and John remembers in first year at high school there was a knock on the door one day and when the teacher opened the door there stood Alf in a full length oilskin coat, a foam pith helmet, dripping wet and a super bag full of oranges slung over his shoulder. As the school teacher approached him Alf said "I hear you're having a sports carnival this week". "That's right", the teacher said. Alf said, "I thought you might be able to use some oranges" as he swung the bag of oranges onto the teachers shoulder and disappeared. The whole class erupted as the teacher bowed at the knees, struggled back into the classroom with the oranges on his back and flung them down on the floor at the front of the room. "Whose father was that?" the teacher said. John, slightly embarrassed, raised his hand and quietly said "Mine".
Kevin's fondest memories of his father are when they travelled around the bush together shifting bees. Alf's knowledge of the bush, trees and birdlife, what trees were flowering and when was a wealth of knowledge which he handed down to Kevin, knowledge that money can't buy.
Alf became more and more interested in collecting seed to grow his own trees, he put a lot of time into sourcing the right tree for the right area. Along with his love of trees was the love of bird life and he spent many hours installing hollows into trees for birds to nest in. The story goes that one day at a working bee before a Duri Gymkhana, Alf discovered a plovers nest where the horse sports were to be held. He gathered up the eggs, took them home, kept them at the right temperature until the gymkhana was over, replaced them on the oval and the plovers came back to continue incubating the eggs.
Throughout the years Alf has been involved in all things community. He was made life member of the Duri P & C, Captain of the Duri Fire Brigade, member of the Progress Association, looked after the Duri Hall for many many years, he was involved in Landcare, a member of the Birdwatchers Society and active member of the Construction of Arboretum at Chaffey Dam. Alf often ran in the Tamworth Ten even into his sixties. Alf certainly set an example of how people should contribute to the community. He was a quiet achiever, he did it without fuss and did everything to the best of his ability.
The last three months has been hard for the family, John, Kevin and Ruth stuck by Alf right to the very end and for this we commend them. Today as we say our goodbyes, remember Alf as he was, he loved a joke, he loved hard work and he loved nature. If you ever are out around Duri, no matter what part of the village you go through, whether it be up near the school, around the sports ground, along the highway, in the streets of the village there is tree after tree that Alf has planted. He planted these trees for the community knowing they would attract bird life, provide shade and help to beautify the area.
These trees have become his legacy may he rest in peace.

"The Wigle family in Canada had John Wendel Weigeli as an ancestor in Germany. Born in 1753, he came to America as an indentured servant, sworn to work seven years for his passage. In Little York, Pennsylvania, he worked as a weaver and in 1776 married Julianna Romerin (sic). Evidently a pacifist, he found himself in an uncomfortable atmosphere at the outbreak of hostilities. Consequently he set out for Canada with a number of others and stopped over at Detroit. They travelled by pack horse and drove their cattle before them. At Detroit they met Leonhard Kratz and the group travelled on to Michigan, then Grosse Isle, and finally settled at Gosfield in 1792. Here a family of eleven children was born to them. Here, too, the family name was changed to Wigle to suit the aforementioned schoolmaster. [a reference to the previous paragraph which says “The name Kratz was eventually changed to Scratch by a schoolmaster with the name of McMurray.”]"

There are many more items at that refer to John, his arrival in America and subsequest journey to Canada.

10523 The following is taken from Dick Moore's 2015 story of Eliza Minter of Palgrave, Suffolk and her children.
Clifford takes the surname SADLER for the 1871 and 1881 census which both record him as being born in Botesdale, Suffolk. He's missing from the 1891«b» «/b»census, but it's quite likely he's out of the country for he returns to the UK from Kingston, Jamaica, via New York in September 1895. Subsequent to this date he criss-crosses the Atlantic several times, leaving Liverpool for New York just before the outbreak of war on 3«sup»rd«/sup» October 1914 on the SS Lusitania.
Several of the shipping manifests give his place of birth as Botesdale, Suffolk and name his contact in the UK as Miss Ida M. Sadler of Redcroft, Earley, Berkshire, (sister).
He returns to Avonmouth, Bristol via New York on 20«sup»th«/sup» March 1927 and promptly on 26«sup»th«/sup» March 1927 at the Register Office in Bristol, marries Millicent Rose GOWEN. He gives his age as 60, bachelor, a retired leather retailer of 10, Clifton Park, Clifton, father Francis SADLER deceased and she is age 39, spinster of 17, The Avenue, Clifton.
For the 1939«b» «/b»register both Clifford and Millicent are described as Hotel Manager and Proprietress, respectively, living at 15-17, The Avenue, Bristol. By his Will dated 12«sup»th«/sup» December 1940, Clifford SADLER leaves everything to his wife, but in the event that she predeceases him, he names Herbert SADLER, brother, of Writtle nr. Chelmsford, Essex; and John SADLER, (nephew), presently serving with the South African Forces; and his niece Hilda MORELAND, wife of Peter MORELAND, of St. Olave's Park Road, Southborough, Kent; as beneficiaries.
Clifford died on 20«sup»th«/sup» August 1946 and Millicent Rose died on 31«sup»st«/sup» December 1959.

According to England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations), 1858-1966 at, Clifford's effects were £1485 2s 10d.
Minter, Clifford (I763)
10524 The following is taken from Dick Moore's 2015 story of Eliza Minter of Palgrave, Suffolk and her children.
Percival is living with the family in Botesdale for the 1871 census as Percival SADLER. For the 1881 census, as Percy SADLER, he's taken himself off to London and is resident in Bread Street as a Warehouseman in the Manchester Warehouse born Botesdale, Norfolk.
In the 1891 census, Percy is working as a Wholesale Draper's Assistant in the Parish of St. Botolph in the City of London, born Wortham, Norfolk. He's admitted to the City Road Workhouse on the 16«sup»th«/sup» January 1897 and 10 days later on 26«sup»th«/sup» January he's discharged as "Dead".
Minter, Percival (I762)
10525 The following is taken from Dick Moore's 2015 story of Eliza Minter of Palgrave, Suffolk and her children.
As Helen SADLER, Ellen died on 9th March 1912 at Redcroft, Wokingham Road, Reading, aged 49, a spinster of independent means, with Ida Muriel SADLER, sister, being present at the death. Despite the "Independent means", no Will or Administration has been registered. 
Minter, Ellen (I759)
10526 The following is taken from Dick Moore's 2015 story of Eliza Minter of Palgrave, Suffolk and her children.
Herbert is living with the rest of his family for the 1871 and 1881 census. However, he disappears for the 1891, 1901 & 1911 census returning to the UK on 18th June 1912 on board SS Marathon from Durban accompanied by a Clara SADLER age 31.

Herbert and Clara eventually marry 11th April 1918 at Chelmsford Registry Office. The marriage certificate describes Herbert as aged 52 "the divorced husband of Mary SADLER formerly REYNOLDS (Spinster)", a Poultry Farmer of Writtle, father Francis SADLER (deceased). Clara is described as Clara Amalia PAUL aged 36, a spinster of Writtle, father Ferdinand PAUL a Doctor of Medicine (deceased).

Backtracking, South African records show a marriage between Herbert SADLER and Mary REYNOLDS 19th October 1898 at St. Paul's Church, Capetown by Licence, both of Full Age; Herbert a bachelor, Bank Manager living at Calas and Mary, a spinster, living at Capetown "but lately visiting at Dartford, Kent". Also backtracking from the 1911 census for Eliza/Elise MINTER/SADLER there is the birth of Clifford Reynolds son of Herbert and Mary SADLER at St. Stephen's, Matatiele, (baptised 24 January 1900) where Herbert is described as a Bank Manager. One peculiarity is that one of the witnesses or sponsor is stated to be Ida SADLER.

Clifford is shipped back to the UK on the SS Walmer Castle on 28th November 1908 and presumably stays with his grandmother and aunts until his father and step-mother arrive in 1912. It's evident that Clara is pregnant before her arrival in the UK for John SADLER is born 22 July 1912 Oxney Green Road, Writtle, Essex to Herbert SADLER and Clara SADLER formerly PAUL. The obvious delay in their marriage would suggest that the divorce from Mary was not completed, (if it ever was), until 1918.

Herbert and Clara make two journeys back to South Africa. Once in 1922 together with son John SADLER aged 9 and the other in 1931. On the return journey in 1931 they are accompanied by Helen PAUL, aged 47, a Matron and a resident of South Africa.

For the 1939 register, both Herbert and Clara are living at Oxney Green Road, Writtle, Essex. Dates of birth are given as 5th May 1868 and 10th May 1881 respectively.

Herbert dies 1963 Jun Chelmsford 4A 498 aged 95 and Clara 1966 Jun Chelmsford 4A 496 aged 85. Neither of them leave a Will or Administration.

Second child John SADLER makes a second trip out to South Africa on his own (aged 17) in 1929 and presumably stays there. A quick visit is made back in 1937 to see his parents but I can find no trace of him after 1940 when he was serving with the South African Forces.

First son Clifford SADLER, (or as he later became known as CLIFFORD REYNOLDS DE CLIFFORD SADLER), as mentioned above, is shipped to the UK in 1908 age 9, (possibly accompanied by Helen PAUL who is also listed on the same passenger manifest), and is resident with Eliza, Ida & Ellen for the 1911 census. He makes one trip out to Gibraltar in 1924.

In 1933 he marries Elsa Marjory GASKELL and the couple have two children - Sarah Helen SADLER in 1937 and Michael Robin De Clifford SADLER in 1942. For the 1939 register Elsa (born 14 January 1906) and daughter Sarah (born 3 June 1937) are living at Wickesfield in the Chichester Rural District.

Elsa dies 23rd November 1959 at 131, Old Road, Cheltenham, and Clifford subsequently marries Ruth HUNTLEY nee ROWLEY on 1st July 1966 at St. Mary's Church, Lavant, Sussex witnessed by both his children. Clifford, himself, dies 30th August 1977 at Nash Point, Lisle Court, Lymington, and Ruth, 5th May 1985 at the same address.
Minter, Herbert (I764)
10527 The following is taken from Dick Moore's 2015 story of Eliza Minter of Palgrave, Suffolk and her children.
His birth registered as Lesley, Leslie is resident with the rest of the family for the 1861 and 1871 census. However for the 1881 he's moved to the Southwark area of London and is recorded as being Leslie SADLER, a "Printer, born Botesdale, Suffolk". He is missing from the 1891, 1901 & 1911 census. Letters of Administration are taken out by Herbert SADLER "lawful brother of the whole blood" when Leslie dies on 28th March 1937, aged 78, at Rose Cottage, Belgrave Road, Eastwood, Essex, intestate, described as a "bachelor without parent".
Minter, Leslie (I761)
10528 The following is taken from Don Chamberlayne's Minter Notes.

"«u»«b»Anthony Minter, Jr.«/u»«/b»
A copy of the will of Anthony, Jr. was made available by Becky Whittemore of Utah *. Dated January 27, 1808, proven in court in Cumberland County October 21, 1812, the will identified nine children, five of them still living in 1808, plus several grandchildren, and at least one great-grandson. It also listed twenty-one slaves bequeathed by Anthony to his children or their heirs.
Regarding Anthony's real property, the will called for the executors to "rent out to the best advantage my tract of land and Plantation where on I now live together with my Distilary for the benefit and Support of my son Jeremiah Minter during his natural life...."
That Anthony may not have known where his son Jeremiah was at the time was implied in a stipulation concerning the action to take if he, the son Jeremiah, failed to appear to claim his inheritance:
"Item: my will and desire is that if my son Jeremiah Minter does not come in and call for his legacy as here to fore mentioned in this my will and testament in the course of Eighteen months then my Executors is to sell my land and plantation and distribute the money arising there from.... [to other beneficiaries]. And should Jeremiah call after the Expiration of the Eighteen months before mentioned his heirs then to receive fifty pounds only out of my Estate."

Dellinger cites evidence (apparently from Marsh «i»via«/i» Bowman) that Jeremiah bought land in Chatham County from his sister Nancy and her husband, William Julius Riddle, in 1769, then sold it to his uncle, John Oliver Minter, three years later. He also says Jeremiah never married, that he served for a time in the local militia, that a court of Chatham County in 1791 declared him insane, and that he was so declared again in 1804, which was several years before his father's will was written.
Anthony's only other living son, John, was bequeathed " Bay horse Saddle and bridle," and of him there is no further mention. Anthony appointed as executors of his will "... my son Jeremiah Minter my two sons in law William Leake and Tarleton Layne and my grandson Gabriel Minter...." Thus, John was not named as an executor while Jeremiah was, despite the matter of his "insanity," as well as the question of whether he would appear to claim his legacy.
According to Storm, another son of Anthony and Elizabeth, named Gabriel, married Nancy Thrailkill, and they had a son, Gabriel, Jr., who married Nancy Cosby and was the grandson Gabriel named as one of the executors of Anthony's will. A son of Gabriel, Jr. was the great-grandson, Josiah Minter, mentioned in Anthony's will. The first Gabriel was not identified in the will, presumably because he was deceased.
The date of Anthony's birth, "about 1715," has been attributed to Dorotha Riddle Marsh by Dellinger and others (Note 1). This date puts him at about 97 when he died in 1812. According to Marsh (via those who cited her), there were a number of land transactions between Minters and Riddles, as well as a marriage which led to a very large descendancy [K.Storm], that of Nancy Elizabeth Minter, eldest daughter of Anthony and Elizabeth Minter, to William Julius Riddle, an immigrant from Scotland, born about 1708. Numerous Minter researchers have quoted (or paraphrased) the same lines, apparently from Marsh, as follows:
"Anthony [Jr.] bought land in Cumberland Co., Va. in Nov 1749, then went to Chatham Co. NC where he purchased 148 acres of land by Cape Fear River in Dec 1771 from James Riddle & wife Temperance & James Riddle's mother Elizabeth Riddle." While Anthony engaged in land transactions in North Carolina, and some of his children, as well as his siblings, relocated there, it is not clear that he ever resided there, and later documents show him in Cumberland County or, after 1777, in the newly-formed Powhatan County. His will assigned land in North Carolina to the heirs of his son William, who had been in possession of it prior to his death about 1796 (the date of his will). Thus, it seems reasonable to presume that Anthony purchased the land for his son, who presumably took charge of it about 1772 or soon thereafter, suggesting that he might have "come of age" about that time, and thus was likely born about the mid-1750s.
Anthony's support for the revolutionary cause, as documented in the Order Books of Henry County, has been recognized by the D.A.R. According to D.A.R. registrar and «i»person to contact«/i» Merry Anne Pierson, Anthony Minter, Jr. has been assigned Ancestor Number A080364 with the rank of "patriotic service," for signing the oath of allegiance and for furnishing beef, wheat, and flour to troops. According to the Dellinger-Mallory group [Marsh], from whom this information had previously been described, the oath he signed was in Powhatan County in 1788, well after the revolution, and was in support of the Constitution of the United States (a vote to ratify).
The major question remaining in regard to Anthony Minter, Jr. pertains to his wife, Elizabeth Jane, whose maiden surname is unknown. It can only be hoped that any reader knowing anything about her will get in touch and help us out. Perhaps further research in Caroline County, if not already exhausted, might tell us something about her, but it is possible that any historical record of her is among the lost documents of the time. " Becky Whittemore's contributions regarding her branch of the Minter family are discussed elsewhere in Don Chamberlayne's notes.

The children shown are as Don Chamberlayne has them. Bob White's tree includes James (born 1776) and Nancy (born 1777) but these dates suggest that Anthony's wife would have been too old to have been the mother. They were probably two of the children of Anthony's son Joseph and his wife Jane Dupuy (Trabue) Minter.
Minter, Anthony Jr. (I49)
10529 The following is taken from Don Chamberlayne's Minter Notes:

"«u»«b»Jeremiah Minter«/u»«/b»
Much of what is known about Jeremiah has been discussed in the context of his father Anthony's will (see Anthony Minter's Notes). According to Dellinger, again drawing on the work of Dorotha Riddle Marsh, Jeremiah moved to what became Chatham County, NC, and purchased 500 acres from William Riddle in 1769 and sold it three years later to his uncle, John Oliver Minter. He served in the Chatham militia, in Capt. Joab Brooks' Company. As previously noted, he was declared insane by a court of Chatham County in 1791, was sued for debt, fraud, and insanity, and declared insane again in 1804. He never married, and it is unknown whether he ever appeared to claim his legacy from his father's will. 
Minter, Jeremiah (I40)
10530 The following is taken from Don Chamberlayne's Minter Notes:

«u»«b»Elizabeth "Betsey" (Minter) Dupuy«/u»«/b»
The first child of Anthony and Elizabeth Jane Minter is believed to have been Elizabeth, known as "Betsey," as her father spelled it in his will. She was born probably in the late 1740s, although documentation is lacking. From Brock's genealogy of the Dupuy family, it is taken that Elizabeth married the Rev. John Dupuy, son of John James («i»Jean Jacques«/i») and Susan (LeVillain) Dupuy, and the couple relocated to Kentucky. From the same source, Elizabeth's brother Joseph Anthony Minter married Jane Trabue, daughter of John James and Olympia (Dupuy) Trabue. Joseph also was a minister, and according to Brock, they also moved to Kentucky, to Woodford County, west of Lexington, in or near what became Versailles, Ky.
Minter, Elizabeth "Betsy" (I107)
10531 The following is taken from, April 2008:
"The marriage of George Dixon HEDLEY, aged 25,
bachelor, surgeon, of Bedford, son of George HEDLEY, stationer, and Anna
Elizabeth Hawes PECK, aged 19, spinster, daughter of Robert James PECK,
surgeon, was solemnised at St. Mary's Church, Newmarket, Suffolk, on the 22nd
of September 1842. The ceremony was conducted by the Revd. Thomas Alcock
HEDLEY, M.A., the bridegroom's brother-in-law, who had travelled from St.
James's, Gloucester, for the occasion. The witnesses were Mary Anne PECK and
Thomas HEDLEY. It appears that George Dixon HEDLEY emigrated to Gippsland,
Victoria, Australia, in about 1850, soon after his brother-in-law, Dr. George
WITT, went to New South Wales, in about 1849. Dr. WITT wrote 'home' in 1851
and referred to 'Dr. Hedley' as follows: 'we have kept our old Servant at
present, her husband is now Captn. of a Ship & is gone to China, but we hear
from Dr. Hedley that he has met with the common lot of all who bring out
Servants, his man & his wife have left him - We have never seen him (Dr. H.)
yet, but we hear that he has grown quite stout & strong' (Dr. George Witt's
letter to Thomas Barnard of Bedford, dated April 6th 1851). George Dixon
Hedley, 'Esquire', certainly lived at Gippsland, Victoria, Australia, in 1869
because he benefitted from Elizabeth Witt's Will, which was made at that time."

Pat Galovich sent the following in March 2012, extracted from the Gippsland Times:
"Gippsland Times, dated 17th March 1879 as follows: "DEATH. HEDLEY. At his residence, Cuninghame Street, Sale, on the 14th March, George Dixon Hedley, M.D., M.R.C.S.L., in his 63rd year.""
HEDLEY, George Dixon (I1000)
10532 The following is taken from
Mossie Mae HOUSTON b. 6 Nov 1885 Henderson, Rusk Co. TX d.15 Nov 1967 Cherokee Co. TX m. 16 Nov 1902 in Panola Co. TX, Arvie Cheaverson MINTER b. 27 May 1880 GA d. 25 Apr 1952 in Cherokee Co. TX. He stated both his parents were born in GA. His parents were John A. Minter b. 1846 GA and his wife Nancy M (Parks) Minter b. 23 June 1846GA who married were farming in Flint, Upson Co. GA in 1880 and farming in Panola Co. TX in 1900. (On that census Arvie is enumerated as Harvey). In the April 1910 census Mossie and Arvie are living in Precinct 7, Panola Co. TX where he is working as a laborer in a saw mill. In 1910 they state they have had 4 children, all still living. In 1920 they are still in Panola Co. TX and have had more children. Mossie Minter and Arvie Minter divorced between 1920 and 1930 and the family sort of split up. She married a 2nd and 3rd time. The family said she had a marriage to a COLEMAN, then to a widower Edgar Albert RUSHING (b. 18 July 1885 d. 18 May 1965 Terrell, TX) from Kaufman Co. TX. There were many Rushing family members living in Carthage, Panola County and in Kaufman Co. TX. This 3rd marriage must not have worked out as they are both living separately in the 1930 census. He is living with his married daughter Mamie (Rushing) Pope in Dallas Co. TX. He is buried with his first wife Eva L. Rushing (died 2 Oct 1925) in the Crandall Cemetery, Kaufman Co. TX. In the 1930 census Mossie Mae is living in Kaufman Co. TX by her son Abner Minterand she is listed as Mossie RUSHING, is 44 and states she is widowed. With her are her two sons ages 13 and 10, Houston and Hubert Minter. Mossie Mae's descendants describe her as a very tall woman, 5'10" or so, who had beautiful, thick, wavy dark hair which she wore long most of her life. Mossie's was a somewhat tragic life due to the fact that she suffered from severe depression most of her life, was committed several times and slept most of the time. Mossie Mae Rushing died in Seagoville, Dallas Co. TX. Mossie (Houston) (Minter) Rushing and her first husband Arvie C Minter are both buried in Corine Cemetery, Cherokee County, TX. with her as Mossie Rushing. Arvie C. Minter died of a heart attack. in the front yard of the house his son Floyd owned in Lakeview, TX. Arvie was described by one of his sons as a very fair, decent and hardworking man.

10534 The following is taken from
Mrs. Marjorie Nora MINTER, aged 61, of 121 Arthur-street, Ryde, died at the Royal IW County Hospital on Tuesday. Born at Carisbrooke she lived at Merston before moving to Newport
on her marriage. She and her husband, Mr. Charles Edward MINTER, were proprietors of a greengrocery shop at Castlehold, Newport, for more than 20 years before moving to Ryde in 1962.
She was a member for more than 20 years of the Ladies Circle of the Coronation (Ryde) Lodge of the Loyal Order of Moose, serving on the committee for many years. During the three years her husband was lodge governor she was Ladies' Circle chairman. She leaves her husband, three daughters and nine grandchildren.
The funeral took place at St. James' Church yesterday. Messrs. H. V. TAYLOR and Son made the arrangements. 
SHARP, Marjorie Nora "Midge" (I2625)
10535 The following is very speculative:
1. William probably married Elizabeth HUNTINGTON in Kirton in July 1798 but died in November the same year.
William was buried as the son of Stephen and Mary HUNSLEY - no mention of being married, which you might have expected even if he'd been married only a few months.
One of the witnesses to the July 1798 marriage was named John HUNSLEY. William had no brother named John but did have an uncle John.
2. This John had a daughter named Mary. It's possible that this was the Mary HUNSLEY who married John PARROT in Kirton in November 1798. Mary PARROT was buried in Kirton in April 1800.
3. Elizabeth HUNSLEY, a widow, married John PARROT, a widower, in July 1801.
4. Elizabeth and John PARROT lived into the 1840s/1850s. In the 1851 census Elizabeth's age was shown as 75 which would equate to the baptism in Messingham on 11 March 1776 of Elizabeth Huntingdon. 1776 is very close to the date of William's baptism.
5. I'm not sure of the significance but Rebecca HOTCHKIN/HOTCHIN was a witness at both of Elizabeth's marriages.

If the above turns out to be incorrect it will be necessary to change what I've done. 
HUNSLEY, William (I595)
10536 The following may refer to this person:

1930 United States Federal Census: in Chicago, Cook, Illinois, Fred L RYDER (head, 54, married at 28, born New York, automobile salesman), Louise M RYDER (wife, 56, married at 30, born Tennessee) and Walter S MINTER (nephew in law, 23, born Tennessee, accountant, electrical mfg). Also a roomer, Harland B WALKER (31).

1940 United States Federal Census: in Oak Park, Cook, Illinois, W Scott MINTER (head, 34, born Tennessee, accountant, maker of neon signs), Edith MINTER (wife, 32, born Illinois) and Nancy MINTER (daughter, 4, born Illinois). 
Minter, Walter Scott Jr. (I3483)
10537 The following note appears at on the record for William Owen Minter:
William and Susan Mae Nunn Minter raised Lucy M. Minter, Ivy May Minter and Owen Randolph Minter. They were the children of Edward Fletcher Minter and Annie M. Gregory. Edward died in 1936 and Annie died in 1933. Edward was a brother to William Owen Nunn [this should be William Own «u»Minter«/u», not Nunn]. So Lucy is a niece, Ivy May is a niece and Owen Randolph is a nephew.
William O. Minter built, owned and operated the Church Street Grocery for more than 30 years. He then owned and operated the Western Auto Store in Collinsville until retiring. 
Minter, William Owen Sr. (I651)
10538 The following note was on this record when I recived it:
"Information on the descendants of Walter Scott Minter furnished by his descendant, Terrell Odom."
However, it turns out that most of the information relates to a completely different line, which can be traced back to a David Kinsey MINTER (1810 - 1888), who doesn't appear in this file at present. I have therefore removed some of the information that was here.

1910 United States Federal Census: in South Pittsburg, Marion County, Tennessee (all MINTER all born Tennessee), Walter S (head, 31, married 5 years, rate clerk, rail road), Mrs Georgia (wife, 31, married 5 years) and Walter S Jr (son, 4).

1920 United States Federal Census: in Bridgeport, Jackson, Alabama (all MINTER all born Tennessee), Walter S (head, 41, station agent, steam rail road), Georgia M (wife, 41) and Walter S Jr (son, 14).

1930 United States Federal Census: in Bridgeport, Jackson, Alabama (both MINTER both born Tennessee), Walter S (head, 51, married at 25, agent, rail road) and Georgia M (wife, 51, married at 25). 
Minter, Walter Scott Sr. (I3451)
10539 The following note was put here by Clifton Minter:
Abner's year of birth is based upon the 1850 census of Tellapoosa County, AL which lists his age as 65.
No one knows for sure when Abner Hill Minter died or where he is buried. He had children born in Heard County, GA in 1844 and 1847 but there is no record of his burial there. He would have been about 60 years old at that time. The family was on the 1850 cencus of Tallapoosa Coounty, AL and again on the 1870 census of Clay County, AL. Abner was dead before 1870. His wife, Sarah, is buried in the Lineville Cemetery in Clay County but Abner is not there. Descendants of Abner's son, David C. Minter, were told that David's father was buried near Selma, Al in 1860. This has not been confirmed.

The additional notes below were added by John Minter in February 2015:
1810 United States Federal Census: in Chatham, North Carolina:
Head of household Abner MINTER.
People in household: Males under 10 - 1; 16 to 25 - 1. Females 16 to 25 - 1.

1820 United States Federal Census: not found.

1830 United States Federal Census: in Upson, Georgia:
Head of household Abner H MINTER.
People in household: Males 5 to 10 - 1; 20 to 30 - 1; 40 to 50 - 1. Females 5 to 10 - 2; 15 to 20 - 3; 40 - 50 - 1.

1840 United States Federal Census: in Upson, Georgia:
Head of household Abner H MINTER.
People in household: Males under 5 - 1; 5 to 10 - 2; 15 to 20 - 1; 50 to 60 - 1. Females under 5 - 1; 15 to 20 - 1; 30 - 40 - 1.

It would seem from the relative ages of the oldest female, comparing 1830 with 1840, that Abner's first wife died between these two years. 'The Minters of Pine Forest' shows Abner's wife as Charity CHAPMAN (1789 - 1850) - the 1850 census below includes a 45 year-old female but doesn't state her relationship to Abner (she is assumed to be his second wife).

1850 United States Federal Census: in Township 21, Tallapoosa, Alabama (all MINTER): Abner H (65, farmer, born North Carolina), Sarah (45, born Georgia), Henry (18, farmer, born Georgia), Robert (16, born Georgia), James (14, born Georgia), Sarah (12, born Georgia), Martha (9, born Georgia), William (7, born Georgia), Angellina (5, born Georgia) and Margrett, born Georgia).

Abner died about 1860; his widow appeared in the 1860 census. The following entry is next after son Henry Randolph and his family.
1860 United States Federal Census: in Southern Division, Randolph County, Alabama (all MINTER), Sarah (63, farmer, born Alabama), Robert (2-, unreadable, born Alabama), Martha (20, unreabale, born Georgia), William (16, born Georgia), Angelina (12(?), born Georgia) and Margaret (10, born Georgia).

In the 1870 census:
1870 United States Federal Census: in Wesobulga, Clay County, Alabama (all MINTER), W C (25, photographer, born Georgia), Cynthia P (20, keep house, born Alabama), James A (1, born Alabama) and a male unnmamed infant (aged 5 months, born Alabama). Also Sarah (66, born Georgia), Martha (28, born Georgia) and Margaret (22, born Georgia).

10542 The following obituary appears in the 2014 Scott File tree at Ancestry:

Charles Eugene (Gene) Minter, 81, a long-time resident of Roanoke was a retired Colonel from the U.S. Air Force Reserves. He died peacefully in his sleep at his home Wednesday, May 26, 2010. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Polly Bolling Minter, and their son, Craig Bolling Minter of Virginia Beach. He was predeceased by his mother, Thelma Collie Miter, and father, Eugene Minter, of Danville, VA.

Mr. Minter was a graduate of the University of Richmond (1951) and The Ohio State University graduate school (1954). He is a member of The Ohio State Alumni Association of Southwest Virginia.

He was chosen by Bob Tate, CEO of Tate Engineering Corp, of Baltimore, to develop the company profile in the entire state of Virginia as First Vice President of the corporation, a position he held until he retired 45 years later. As the trained sales force grew, sales from the beaches of the east coast to the mountains of western Virginia increased, resulting in offices in Roanoke, Norfolk and Richmond. At the time of his retirement, the company publication acknowledged his talent and leadership: "We thank you for all the years of true inspiration and leadership," an editorial read.

Many families in this area with sons and daughters serving in the armed forces in the Vietnam War were grateful to Gene Minter for his hobby as a ham operator. He arranged for family members here to talk on his ham radio equipment to their relatives in service in Vietnam.

As a member of the Cosmopolitan Club, he supported its establishment of the Roanoke Valley Speech and Hearing Clinic, as well as sponsorships of local high school track meets. He has been a member of VISA, the Virginia Inland Sailing Association, since 1960.

Mr. Minter was a member of St. Marks Lutheran Church. A private burial in the church gardens will precede the memorial service at 2 p.m., Saturday, May 29, with Rev. John W. McCandlish officiating. A visitation/reception will follow in the Fellowship Hall.

Friends and family who wish to contribute to a memorial to Charles Eugene (Gene) Minter may make a donation to St. Marks Lutheran Church garden fund, 1008 Franklin Rd., SW, Roanoke, VA 24016. Arrangements by Oakey's Roanoke Chapel 540-982-2100.
