Message #9 dated Jan 20, 2000 Subject: Marion Columbus Minks posted by Peggy Minx Kenyon
Hi, I have collected some info on your family line. I originally thought it connected to mine because of a few of the family members use the spelling of Minx. I have tentatively linked Marion's father Peter Mink (s) to Nicholas Mink of Laurel County KY. He may be related to my ggggrandfather John Mink of Kentucky.

RE: William Lankford Birge
The only probate record for name Birge is William L. Birge. Enclosed please find the copies of the entire file in the marriage record names appear:
Michael Dio-Sarah Burge 17 Oct 1877.
I have checked for different spellings in the cemetery books.
Michael Dyo is in the Burton Cemetery died 1901.
Michael Dyo (60) married Catherine Wagonseller (30) 22 May 1881.
I have reason to believe Catherine Wagonseller maybe connected to the Burtons. (Oh, I am correct she is a Burton)!

The Land records wouldn't appear in the probate that is in another section of the courthouse. It is much more time consuming. (I checked an index)

"SECTION 7 T 39 R-6
Anna Minks Aug 11 1869 160 Acres
Same Section William G. Burton 160 Acres
Same Section William L. Burton 160 Acres

F. M. Minks Nov 11 1869 160 Acres
Sarah E. Birge March 28 1878 40 Acres, T38-R8Section 13, Widow of C. L. Birge."

I hope this has been of some help to you. Again I apologize for being so slow, in finding the last part.
Happy hunting,
Sincerely,
Mona

Generation No. 2

2. SARAH ELIZABETH 2 MINKS (PETER1) was born Abt. 1840 in Indiana, and died Bef. 02 June 1880 in Sarah is not listed on Census. Her second husband is listed as Widow.
She married (1) CHARLES LANKFORD BIRGE Abt. 1867, son of LANKFORD BIRGE and EMELINE TRACY. He was born Abt. 1847 in Indiana, and died 31 May 1873 in Rolla, Phelps Co., Missouri.
She married (2) MICHAEL JAMES DYO 30 December 1877 in Phelps Co., MO. He was born 03 January 1820 in Six Mile Prairie, Madison Co., IL, and died 04 June 1901 in Phelps Co., MO.

Notes for SARAH ELIZABETH MINKS:
Elizabeth was French, as was her family, as told to me by my Uncle Lloyd Birge. Lloyd said his dad, her son, told him she had beautiful long black hair shoulder length and black eyes. She was beautiful. Now, 4/2000 we know why Uncle Lloyd thought she was French. It was Michael Dyo that was French.

Oct 30 1999 received an e-mail from Barbara Crouch, my cousin. She said according to her Grandma Ida, and her dad, William L. was raised by his step dad after his dad died, his mom remarried and then also died. But no one ever knew the name of the step dad. That was a roadblock all of these years. We haven't hit anything definite on the Minks in Phelps Co., either. Charles and I had searched some in the Phelps Co., courthouse years ago with no luck probably 25 years ago and gave up too soon. There is a link from the land patent site that you can even see and print out the original record. I'll have to get some photocopies made and send you of the guardianship papers. Sarah Burge married Michael Dio, Marriage Bk. 1 page 283 October 17 1877. But on the guardianship papers it is Michael Dyo. 31 May 1883, Probate Bk. B, page 51. William S. Burton and C. S. Burton also signed the paper under Michael Dyo. Could they be Elizabeth's sister and husband? Also, when William L. and Nancy bought land on October 19 1889 they lived in Franklin County and bought land in Phelps Co., from C. S. Burton. I have to look them up also when I go back. Not sure when that will be. The land was near Rolla so that would be Rolla Twp. cbrouch

UPDATE, now we know that William S. Burton and C. S. Burton are the sons of William Burton, Anna Burton Minks brother.

Feb 9 2000, received several emails from Betty Allen in OK. Reads as follows;
Hello, my name is Betty Allen. Michael Dyo was my Great-grandfather. So far, I know that he was born in Madison County Illinois, Six Mile Prairie. He was born Jan 3 1820 and died June 4, 1901 in Phelps County MO. He is buried in the Burton Cemetery. I know that he was married to Sarah E. Birge, the widow of Lankford Birge, in Phelps County, MO., on Dec 30 1877. Can't help but think he had been married before this and may have had children by his first marriage. After Sarah died he married my Great-grandmother, Catherine Wagonseller nee Burton, in Phelps Co., MO on May 22 1883.

Notes for CHARLES LANKFORD BIRGE:
10-5-2000 received e-mail from Bettyjean. She just returned from Rolla MO. She saw an Obit list, couldn't find the paper, dated June 7 1873 Obit for Charles Birge.

October 6, 2000 received e-mail from Barbara Pugh, Phelps Co., MO., coordinator."
I found the Charles Birge OBIT.
The Rolla Herald
5 June 1873
A young man named Charles Birge, residing on the farm of Capt. Hobert, about seven miles northeast of Rolla, died on Saturday last, after an illness of about an hour and half. It is supposed that he was poisoned by eating wild parsnips, as he and another young man named William Hocutt had eaten of the roots of that wild weed, mistaking it for sweet anise. Hocutt, who had not partaken so freely of the poisonous plant; was taken with the same symptoms and was saved by the prompt administration of melted lard and butter, recommended by Mr. S. T. Johnson, our informant. The poison had taken such effect on Birge that the remedies at hand were of no avail. The deceased was about twenty-six years old and leaves a wife and one child." Barbara

The above OBIT states that Charles and his wife and son were residing on the farm of Capt. Hobert. Well, Page 12 of the Rolla Twp., Phelps Co., Census family #84 lists Hobart, Thomas age 31 farmer born Mass. List his wife I believe (very hard to read Phelps Co. Census) wife Jennie age 37 or 32 born PA, then lists Norm, William age 11 male born PA. This Census date was June 29, 1870. This was Image page 112 Ancestry.com

October 7, 2000 received e-mail from BettyJean. I had been wondering what Charles date of death was too, so this morning I got out my encyclopedia and found out that June 5 1873 was on Thursday. The Saturday before was May 31 1873. He would have been born Abt 1847. Should be on 1850 Census somewhere. The 1880 Census says that William's dad and mom where born in Indiana. If not Indiana, it may have been Ohio. The Birge's weren't in Missouri in 1850. Betty

Sweet Anise per the Encyclopedia, is of the Carrot family as is the parsnip. The anise is aromatic and has medicinal qualities. The seed like fruits (aniseed) are used as flavoring and provide anise oil for a variety of uses. Sharlee

Per the Census from 1880 Phelps Co., MO, when William L. Birge told where his parents where born, he said both were born in INDIANA.

Notes for MICHAEL JAMES DYO:
After hearing from Barbara Crouch, I contacted Phelps County Researcher I know and asked through US Gen Web. Burton Cemetery Phelps Co., MO.
Listed Dyo, M. b 31 Jan 1820/1829 died June 4 1901? Also on this list were some of the names Barbara Crouch said were on the guardian ship papers.

Feb 9 2000, Betty Allen great granddaughter of Michael Dyo. She also found in court records, that Michael Dyo, Thos. Rhinehart and G. Lacross or Sacross, were charged with murder by the State of Missouri. According to the Phelps County Circuit Court records of August 9 1876; a true bill of indictment having been ignored in the above entitled cause. It is ordered by the Court that the Defendants and their recognizers be discharged and go hence without day and that they recover their costs, and having further business to attend to they retire to consider of their presentments.

Feb 9 2000, Betty Allen, I got it from an affidavit given by my great grandfather as to a land sale. It says: Affidavit to Perfect title relating to Book N pg. 269, State of Missouri, County of Phelps Michael Dyo being sworn on oath says.
“I am 65 years of age I married in 1877 to Sarah E. Birge, the widow of Langford Birge who died in or about 1870. We made a warranty deed in 1878 to John S. Frost to the SW & SE section 13. R38 Rg. 8 and omitted to state the fact in the deed. And further affidavit says note. signed by Michael Dyo. Witnessed on November 12, 1887. Also noted that Sarah's name was spelled Burge on the marriage records.”

Feb 10, 2000, Betty Jean Allen, Also on the other place that was mentioned in the record of land sale of Sarah E. Dyo and Michael Dyo, it said lands subject to sale at Booneville Missouri and containing forty acres, more or less.
The Burtons lived in Franklin County Missouri before moving to Phelps Co., MO.
She goes on to say, "I have a ledger book belonging to my great-grandfather that list sales to William Minks. All the pages with his name are crossed off. One also has Nick Minks. I think it must have been in Phelps County. The dates are 1877 and 1878.

Notes for FRANCIS MARION MINKS:
Note: information posted on the family of Francis Marion Minks came from the riknoring web site. Shows birth of Aug 9 1841 Laclede, Missouri
The 1850 Franklin County Missouri census shows Frances age 13 and born in Indiana.

Note: March 21, 2000 received e-mail to my query from kenyon (Peggy Minx Kenyon)
Hi Sharlee, my name is Peggy Minx Kenyon. I met some of your relatives while researching my maiden name. Cliff Minx of Kansas City Missouri is Frances great grandson. His father was Elmer Francis of Washington county Missouri. Francis father was Peter Minks of Kentucky and his mother was Anna Burton. The two were married in Harrison County Indiana. Good Luck Peggy.

Note: March 22, 2000 received answer to my e-mail from Peggy Kenyon. Cliff's father was the first one to start using the spelling of Minx. Some used Mink and some used Minks. I talked with Thomas Minks of Potosi and he told me the same. Thomas uses Minx and his brothers and some cousins use Minks. No one seems to know the original spelling.
The 1850 census is the only appearance for Peter that I have found. Anna appeared one more time in 1870. I couldn't find anyone from the family in 1860 in Missouri.
The Missouri records are so bad for the counties where I researched.
I believe Peter is related to the Nicholas Minks family of Laurel and Rockcastle County areas of Kentucky but have no proof.
I don't know how much info they will have on Sarah. I will put her name down on my research list and if I find anything will let you know. I live in Pittsburg Kansas near the Missouri border, so I can easily research in Missouri. Good Luck, Peggy

(UPDATE, I found them listed in the 1860 Dallas Co., MO. Census. Name was spelled wrong.) Sharlee

4-2-2000 I e mailed Peggy Kenyon. After re-reading your email to me regarding Francis Marion Minks, I can't connect Cliff Minx, Elmer Francis of Washington County Missouri to Francis Marion Minks. I have a list of Francis Marion Minks children and Elmer Francis isn't listed.

Hi Sharlee, Cliff is the son of Elmer Francis Minx, born Oct 4 1893 died May 17 1973. Elmer was the son of William Thomas Minks, born march 30 1864 died 1944. William is the oldest son of Frances. He appears on the 1870 Census for Phelps County, Rolla Missouri. 1880 Crawford County, Liberty, Missouri. 1920 Washington County, Potosi Missouri. Good Luck, Peggy

Nov 2001 info from JoAnn Camacho....Goodspeed History of Franklin, Jefferson, Washington, Gasconade County MO, pp599 and 600.
"Anthony's Mills (the post office) is a small village on or near the county line between Crawford and Washington Counties. It was so named from the mills in the vicinity....The present business men of Anthony's Mills are Summers & Anthony, general store, established in 1888; T. J. Russell, shoemaker; M. F. & Thomas Minks, blacksmiths, established in 1880 and two druggists, ..." Since the Death Certificate states that he was a blacksmith, it is assumed that M. F. is Marion Francis Minks. It is unknown at this time (Sept 15 1999) as to who the Thomas Minks is, it could be Francis and Lucinda Minks oldest son William Thomas who was 16 in 1880.

Notes for ELIJAH NICHOLAS MINKS:
This article appeared in the Franklin County Tribune on Friday September 23, 1910:
" Stanton Stories
R. Armistead and family were visiting at E. N. Minke's Sunday." (Richard Armistead married Cora Esther Roberts June 16 1891, Cora's mother was Eliza C Minks, Elijah is Eliza C. Minks baby brother)

So, it appears Elijah was alive and he was living in Stanton, Franklin Co., MO.

It also appears that the Census taken on April 21, 1910 did not understand how his name was pounced.

So, it appears Elijah was alive and living in Meramec Twp Enu Dist 67, let me say a couple of things. First this census is very hard to read.

It appears that Elijah's daughter Agnes married a man by the name of ??? Leslle, Lesile, Lealh Ancestry.com said it was Lauth. Then they don't list Agnes and the children which appear on the census as well. Here is my best interpretation of the Census.
First the family number is in question, as they are out of sequence. Ancestry.com said 138 it could be 128
family# 128 or 138
Leslh, Wm. Head of Family male white age 40 married born MO father not known mother born MO
" Agnes wife female white age 24 married born MO parents born MO
" Mike son male white age 4 1/2? single born MO parents born MO
" Irene dau female white age 7/12 born MO parents born MO
Minks, E. N. son-in-law male white age 67 married born MO parents born KY
Minks, Cooehra? wife white female age 60 or 61 born MO father Ohio mother Penn(wow?)
Minks, James grandson age 4 1/2 born MO parents born MO
Minks, James Head of family age 38 born MO parents born MO
Minks, Hallie wife age 30 born MO parents born MO
Minks, Blanche daughter age 10 born MO parents born MO
Minks, Jessie daughter age 9 born MO parents born MO
Minks, Logan son age 6 born MO parents born MO
Minks, Wallen son age 23 months per Ancestry.com looks like 1 11/12 born Mo parents born MO

UPDATE, December 30, 2007, just as I was searching all of the Leath names in the Missouri Death Index; Boy oh boy, what a find. The above family is LEATH, Wm., is the son of, WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE…WOW What a find.

Generation No. 3


10. WILLIAM LANKFORD3 BIRGE (SARAH ELIZABETH2 MINKS, PETER1) was born 18 October 1868 in Franklin City, Franklin Co., MO, and died 03 January 1934 in Summersville, Texas Co., MO. He married NANCY MELVINEY COOPER 26 September 1888 in Franklin Co., MO, daughter of ELI COOPER and ELIZABETH ARMISTEAD. She was born 09 December 1868 in Tibble, Franklin Co., MO, and died 26 November 1958 in Summersville, Texas Co., MO.

Notes for WILLIAM LANKFORD BIRGE:
Per Lloyd Birge (son) August 10, 1996 to Sharlee
His dad was an only child. William's father Charles Lankford Birge died when William was 3 years old. His mother Elizabeth Minks Birge (French). "Now we know that it was his stepfather who was French." Sarah didn't live much longer. Sharlee.

His dad was raised by Elizabeth’s mother and dad. He thinks Elizabeth fathers name was Myles Minks, in Franklin County. He remembers vaguely going to see the Minks when he was very small six or so. We now also know that Myles or Miles Minks was Sarah's baby brother. Sharlee

Now, we know that William was raised by his stepfather, Michael Dyo and his grandmother Anna Burton Mink or Minks until Michael married Catherine Ada Burton Wagonseller. We now also know why the family has thought that the Birge family was Indian. It was Catherine Ada Burton Wagonseller husband and her children by him that were Indian. I now have a picture of Michael and Catherine Ada Burton Wagonseller Dyo. Lloyd said that his dad said he was born in Gasconade County Missouri. (Can't prove this yet)

Update; October 5, 2000. Now we know that William was four and one half years old when his father died. See Obit just received which I have posted to Charles's sheet.

Also, have received copies of all of the Phelps Co., MO., documents relating to William Birge, Michael Dyo and the Burton family. Guardian ship paper etc.

Notes for NANCY MELVINEY COOPER:
per Jessie Cooper Thomas
Nancy Melviney Cooper Birge born Dec 9 1868. She died Nov 26 1958 at Mountain View Missouri. She is buried in the Flat Rock Cemetery, Flat Rock Missouri.
My papa, Richard Cooper, loved his only living sister very much. She had been the only mother he could remember. It was Nancy who fed him when his mother died. Who slept with him to keep him warm and so that he would not be afraid of the dark. I remember him missing her so much when they moved to Idaho. And how happy we were when they moved back to Missouri.
I do not have the date but Uncle Bill had a stroke which left him an invalid for long time. Like the good wife she had always been, she cared for him tenderly and faithfully until he died in January 3 1934. In October 1935 my mother Hattie Cooper and my sister Daphne moved onto the Russell Parks farm near Summersville Missouri where they lived until Russell sold the farm to Hugh Stoops and his son Sylvan Stoops in the fall of 1946.
Aunt Nancy lived with mamma and Daphne for some 9 or 10 months of that time. Mamma had her good Jersey cow, Buttercup, a few chickens, a sow, and 2 dogs.
Aunt Mamie Shuler had left her beautiful white poodle "Doo Doo." They already had one dog of their own.
Cousin Elmer moved them. All of papas people loved our mother and their ONLY Aunt Nancy and were very good and helpful when ever they would let anyone help. Both widows, were hard workers all of their lives. So they wanted to do everything for themselves as long as they could. I feel sure this added to their lives, too.

October 26, 1996 as told to me by Bertha Cooper Bradford
I don't know how they met, but I know she told me that grandpa Eli was against her seeing him so she told me they wrote letters or notes to each other and had hid them in a hollow stump or tree. She took a few clothes & left to go with him. She was 16 when my grandmother died.

In 1932 I believe was the year that Nancy Cooper Birge put our families information down on paper. It is from this basis that I have searched. Sharlee

August 10, 1996, I went to Pasco Washington to see my Uncle Lloyd Birge, son of William and Nancy. He showed me and I read aloud Nancy Cooper Birge Bible. I also have on tape recording. It was also from here that I verified all information on the Birge, Cooper, Armistead families. Bill Birge, Lloyd's son now has this Bible. Sharlee

Wow, thanks for the file it will take me a while to work my way through it.
I forwarded your original e-mail to my Aunt. She has moved recently and has not got her records organized after the move. She did say however, that she had tied Francis Marion to Peter Minks and that she believed that the family came from Indiana. I have also forwarded your file on to her.
My mother is a Minks, her father was Clyde Carl Minks, her grandfather Marion Columbus Minks and her great grandfather Francis Marion Minks. Her family spells it MINKS, however she does have cousins that spell it Minix. I'm not sure the where the Minix branch ties in, I have just recently began looking at my mother's side of the family. Your Cousin, JoAnn

April 22 2001 received e-mail jocamacho (JoAnn)
I have taken the liberty to forward your file to three people; my Aunt Wilma Minks, my stepfather Wayne Hanna and Joan Hollars who descends from Peter Minks the son of Francis Marion Minks. Your Cousin JoAnn

Notes for CORA AURELIA HANSON:
Per Message #49 dated Sept 8 2000 posted by Joan. Cora Aurelia Hanson Minks was Joan's grandmother. Cora Aurelia was sent to an orphanage in MO., at the age of Abt 13, and she had a brother named Jim and a 1/2 brother named John.. This is all I know she said, until she married my grandfather Peter N. Minks.
I was first given Aurelia Harrison or Hanson.

Nov 30 2003 received e-mail from Kristine, she sent me what she had named "The Anderson Tribe. She tied Cora Hanson who marred Peter Minks to an Obit she found. A sister by the name of Lillie Madue Henson who married William Franklin Allen. In the Obit telling of one of the saddest things ever to happen in Sullivan MO., a house fire in which seven members of the family parished, one was Lillie (Henson) Allen. In the obit it list the survivors of Mrs. William Allen, maiden name was Lillie Hanson born in St. Louis and at the time of her death she was 55yrs 11mo 23dy. She as two brothers and one sister living. James Hanson, of St. Louis, John Hanson, Piedmont; Mrs. Odie Minks, Festus." Please see Cora Aurelia Hanson Minks file for the history of this family.
It appears that Kristine received most of her information from interview with and personal knowledge of Daisy Theresa Dyle, showing that the Hanson's children father was Andrew Hanson born in GA. Then Kristine make a note in her work that she received this information from, then she typed in, she forgot where she got this information. The information states this, "My grandmother was born in Washington County Missouri. Her mother died when she was a baby and her father traveled around a lot so he paid her way in a convent at the age of around 13. She had a brother named John and a 1/2 brother named Jim who had only one arm. Jim had a daughter that lived around Jennings, MO. My grandmother's name was Aurelia but most people called her Odie. As she got a little older she taught the lower grades of school in the convent to supplement her room and board.
My grandmother never left Missouri as much as I know. She was sent to a convent around Washington MO and met Peter Minks, married and moved to Ste. Genevieve, MO and Potosi Mo. She was baptized with the name of Cora.
She married Peter N. Minks and they raised 12 children. Aurelia Hanson was from Missouri and lived there all her life."

Armistead, was born on a farm near Spring Bluff, Missouri, November 22 1868 and departed this life at his home in Stanton, Missouri, January 6, 1939, at the age of 71 years, one month and 15 days.
On June 16, 1891, he was united in marriage to Miss Cora Roberts of Stanton. To this union, four children were born; Mrs. Lola Parks of Stanton; Mrs. Della Lawrence of St. Louis; Thomas Armistead, Jr., of St. Clair and one son Percy, who preceded him in death 18 years ago.
He also leaves ten grandchildren, two brothers, George of Leslie and James of Stanton; one sister, Mrs. Martha Moss of Leslie, MO., and another sister, Mrs. Nannie Erxleben of St. Louis MO; a host of other relatives. Also a sorrowful wife, who so, tenderly comforted and cared for him throughout his great suffering and neighbors, who will sadly miss him.
He was a kind and loving father, a good neighbor and a good citizen in the neighborhood in which he lived. At all times he was interested in his church and the Christian life of his community. He has fought the good fight; he has kept the course and has fallen heir to a crown of righteousness which he justly deserves. Funeral services ere conducted Sunday from the Christian Church at Stanton, with interment in the church cemetery, Casey & Lenox Funeral Directors at St. Clair had charge."

Hi Sharlee
All of us here have been trying to locate that old Armistead Cemetery. We know it is on the Bourbouse River, but we don't know who owns the property now. I am sure it is on the old Armistead land. I doubt if there are any markers that are readable, if there ever were any. I have come to the conclusion that there were only stones. The reason is because no one knows the exact birth or death dates of Thomas J. Sr. and his parents. If there had been at any time some kind of marker with names and dates, I would have thought that someone would have written it down, and someone would have the information. But I could be wrong, the location may have been lost and the markers are only over grown. Karen

Received this e-mail
My GGM was Rosetta Minks Elam born 3/30/1880 Rolla, Phelps Mo., to William and Lavenia Daniels Minks. Rosetta married Guy Elam of Dallas Texas in 1897; they had 6 sons and 1 daughter; and she died here 6/28/1922 and is buried at Pleasant Mount Cemetery here with her Guy and several children. I located her on the 1880 U.S. Census as the only child of William and Lavenia and have her Texas death Certificate which led me to the 1880 Missouri Census. I have been told by my Aunt that Rosetta may have been adopted and came to Texas but have no information as to why and who this might have been with. It is also interesting that the Minks name here in Dallas, Texas is being spelt as "Minx". Do you have any family contacts with anyone in Dallas Texas?
The children of Guy Rosetta Elam were Guy Cecil, Erwin Franklin, Leonard Olin, Hugh A., Alton E. "Bud", Robert Everett and Thelma Katie Lou Stribling of Midland TX; all deceased.
We look forward to hearing from you. You are more than welcome to call us if you like. Lewis & Linda

33. IDA ELIZABETH4 BIRGE (WILLIAM LANKFORD3, SARAH ELIZABETH2 MINKS, PETER1) was born 01 February 1893 in Near Spring Bluff Post Office, Franklin Co., MO, and died 03 November 1975 in Summersville, Texas Co., MO. She married NEIL THEOPOHLUS BRAWLEY 01 July 1917 in Alley Springs, Shannon Co., MO, son of GEORGE BRAWLEY and HETTIE GARRETT. He was born 14 March 1890 in Oregon Co., MO, and died 23 February 1962 in Summersville, Texas Co., MO.

Notes for IDA ELIZABETH BIRGE:
Per the 1920 Carter Co., MO Census Family 474, their were NO children listed. Just NEAL as his name was shown and Ida.

1974 per Jesse Cooper Thomas.
The children of Ida and Neil Brawley "rose up and honored their wonderful Mother." Alice and Gloster Tuttle were in the same Hospital. I lived a Niangua MO and went to visit all 3 of them. It was beautiful to see how all of their children were united home life. A stable foundation to start life on. They, in turn can pass that standard to the next generation. Of such homes are this Great Strong Nation Made and Stand.

Per my dad, Ida lived on the old Bond place North East of Summersville Missouri in the Hills.

Notes for RADO BOND:
Rado Bond and William Bill Koller was the first of the (Birge) related families to leave Missouri. This is per my Dad, Cordell Birge. He wasn't sure when that was but, then the Birge family followed their sister Maude Birge Bond.

Rado and Maud Bond first settled in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. I have seen these places, first near a gulch then to the farm land I remember seeing this two story old house and I believe there was still a barn. We use to hunt up around there. This was when I was a very young girl. I remember visiting Aunt Maudie as we called her in her home in Dayton Washington. She loved cats, and always had lots of them in her house. Of course, by this time I believe all of her children were all grown. Their children sold that beautiful land, just a year or so ago. May 10 1999.

Notes for EVELYN JANE MINKS:
JoAnn has personal knowledge of Margaret Bradfield Minks.
She extracted from notes of Wilma Minks:
Found among Margaret's papers is a story she wrote in a Journal for her little daughter Evelyn. JoAnn copied it as she wrote it.
Evelyn Jane Minks was the fourth child and the first girl of Margaret and Clyde Minks. We were so happy and thankful to have a baby girl. When she was only 3 days old my husband’s brother told me of this. He went to our home and he seen her name written all over the place. It was also on the butter when they went to eat. My husband was so proud of her. She was Abt 7 lbs at birth. She begin loosing weight. She never gained it back. The Doctors knew something was wrong. She could not eat right. After her first week they had me feed her with an eye dropper. I was in the hospital for 2 weeks with her. Then they let us come home. I often set for two hrs or more feeding her. When she was a month or more I found a used nipple from the last baby boy. I made a larger hole in it and I found that it being large and soft and the milk running out of it so that she didn't have to suck. She could swallow the milk and eat much faster and also have more food. She then began to grow a little. A few ounces in a week, but one night she got sick and chocked and we were scared. We took her to the hospital and they kept her. She got worse and worse after about 2 weeks we brought her home. The doctors said there was no hope for her. We took her to another doctor. She lived for a week. One evening about 6 I gave her 1 drop of water with the dropper but she could not swallow it and I held her in my arms and she passed away. My husband was with me. The doctors said she died of Screwy which is starving. She could not be fed in any way. For the past week he had fed her one ounce of fluid with a tube which he put into her stomach. We buried her in the Festus Grave Yard where my father was.

found this sweet little baby's death certificate. The above is correct cause of death. All information of dates and parent information is correct. Sharlee

Hi, If you are related to the Parks and Armistead’s of Franklin Co., we probably are related too. My dad put together a lot of information about the Parks family. I believe he has some on the Armistead’s too. Here's what I have on the Stites/Parks Connection. William Park b: 1824 married Mary Polly Stites 1830, Anderson Parks b: 1816 married Sussana Stites 1839, Ebenezer Parks b: 1824 married Nancy Stites 1843, and Elijah Bailey Parks’s b: 1827 or 1832 married Sarah Ann Stites Feb 12 1852. I am descended from Elijah through his 2nd wife Mary Polly Clarinda Miller.
Jesse Park and Anna Dent were the Parks boys' parents. I don't have a date or place of birth on either but there were married Aug 10 1809 in Madison Co., Ky., according to what I have. If you need more detail, I have more. And if you have anything to help, please let me know. My paternal grandma was Lola Ann Armistead.
Thanks, DP

"Hi Sharlee, I talked to Donald Parks about this, and he told me --James Archie Minks b: 4/24/1916; d: 6-18-1971) James' parents were Charles M. Minks & Susan A. Armistead. Charles M. Minks died about 1917. I don't know why, but James A. was raised by his uncle, James Peter Minks B: 4/20/1881 d: 5/18/1948) and his wife Hettie Fryer. In the obituaries it is very confusing about who is who. That is why I asked Donald Parks about it, he was raised out in Franklin County and knew a lot of people. He never said why James A., Minks' mother, Susan Armistead Minks, didn't raise her son. Does this make sense?? In the 1930 census, it has James living with James & Hettie and he is listed as a nephew. Hope this helps." Karen

Dr. Wesley Joe Birge died at his home in Lexington Kentucky June 15, 2006.
Wesley Joe Birge was born March 11, 1929 in Pomeroy, Garfield Co., Washington, son of General Francis Marion and Vada Pauline (McAllister) Birge.
Wesley grew up in a small but beautiful little community nestled in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. He was very active in high school. He lettered in football, basketball, and baseball. He was a member of the Orange P Club, FFA Club, High Y Club, and was in the senior class play. He graduated from Pomeroy High School in 1947. He loved the outdoors; he loved to hunt and fish.
Wesley left Pomeroy and started his education at Eastern Washington State University, receiving his B.A. degree in Biology, 1951. From there he went to Oregon State University, receiving his M.S. degree in Zoology, 1953 and his Ph.D. degree in Zoology, 1955. Dr. Birge held appointments at the following universities: University of Illinois, Department of Zoology, Instructor, 1955-1957, and Assistant Professor, 1957-1962. Associate Professor University of Minnesota (Morris Campus), Biology, 1962-1968.
Dr. Birge went on to the University of Kentucky in 1968. He wrote his dissertation in embryology and was professor in biology & toxicology. He taught biology and comparative vertebrate anatomy classes to name a few. He also holds a joint appointment in the Graduate Center for Toxicology (GCT), and in Biology. He was one of the founding members of the GCT at University of Kentucky in 1979, and served as its Director from 1983 to 1987. He received the Founder's Award in 2002. He has since wrote many articles and book chapters some of which are: Metal Toxicology, Reproductive Toxicology, Amphibian Toxicology, embryology, and microscopy. And he also served as director in the Biology department as well.
In addition to his many accomplishments, his lab also developed the EPA standard method "Phathead Minnow Embryo Larval." He has traveled to many international symposia on environmental science. He has also worked with many graduate and postdoctoral students that have gone on to win awards and honors including the SETAC/Proctor and Gamble Predoctoral Fellowship.
Outside of work he loved an enjoyed his farm with his beloved cats and dogs. He spent most of his free time in the gardens if he wasn't out fishing on his boat. He raised and trained English Setters for several years as well. This has just scratching the surface of Dr. Birge and accomplishments. He will be loved and missed by whose lives he has touched.
Wesley is survived by his two children Debra Lee Birge and Thomas Wesley Birge of Lexington, KY. And by his brother Cordell Birge of Troy Montana, nieces, nephews, cousins, colleges, and a host of friends around the world.
Wesley was preceded in death by his little brother General Lester Birge, and his parents, all of whom are buried in Pomeroy WA. By Sharlee Birge Farrell
