Fourth Generation

198. Minnie HARMON3,79 was born in November 1865 in Missouri.46 She died after 1933 at the age of 68.

The 1870 census is the only time Minnie's birth place is given as Missouri. I never found her in 1880. After 1900, she always gave her place of birth as Indiana.

Minnie was still living when her brother James died in 1933. She was listed in his obituary as Mrs. Minnie Thayer, and was living with James at the time. She was in 1930, age 63, a widow, married at age 30 [she may have misunderstood the question as earlier censuses showed she married when she was about age 21]
