Several Minshews have left tracks in the sands of Bay County. John W. was buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery there under a stone that reads "Aug 9, 1896 - Aug 6, 1985." You can find several additional of that surname listed here: www.rootsweb.com/~flbcgs/cemetery
Two marriages for Minchews are list here: www.rootsweb.com/~flbcgs/marriagesbut I'm not sure about the spelling mismatch.
There is also an obituary indexed for Minshew, Valeria P., May 4, 1994, Wed, bd. N/A Kent-Forest Lawn Cemetery. You can go here:www.rootsweb.com/~flbcgs/obituary and click on"How to use these records" to learn how to request a copy of John W. Minshew's obit and/or Valeria's.
