    Notes 
    • The names Rush Edwin come from Bob White. I'm assuming he is the "Raske" who appears, aged 18, in the 1940 (but not the 1930) census.

      From findagrave.com, Dec 2014:
      Rush E. Minter, 85, of Charlottesville, Virginia, went home to be with his personal Lord and Savior after a courageous battle with dementia and heart disease.

      Son of the late Paul and Annie Minter. In addition, he was preceded in death by four brothers, Dillard, Webb, Jim Willie and Tommi-Joe; and two sisters, Cora and Lottie Mae Law. He served his country in the Merchant Marines and the United States Army from 1945 until 1955. He was a devout Christian who was very soft spoken and had a kind word for all. He was a dedicated member of the Monticello Wesleyan Church where he served his Lord in many capacities. He was employed by Sperry Marine for 30 years as a machinist until his retirement in 1985.

      Rush is survived by his wife and best friend of 63 years, Lorene Minter of Charlottesville; two sons, Dale and Steve; three grandchildren, Tyler, Matthew and Joshua; a God-daughter, Christie Durham; and a sister, Marie Nance. He also leaves numerous nieces and nephews to cherish his memory with a special thanks to Linda Sasser and Rhonda Law for their special "touch" when needed most.

      A Celebration of Life was conducted Thursday, June 28, 2012, at the Monticello Wesleyan Church with the Reverend Jerry Harding officiating.

      Teague Funeral Home, Charlottesville, VA.
