I do not have any evidence you haven't come across already re: Minerva Farney and her marriage.As you note from the 1850 census, Minerva & her soon-to-be husband, Robert, were near-by neighbors: 1850 United States Federal Census > Kentucky > Carter > District 1, pgs 269B-270A.Robert & his mother & bro Sidney in dwelling# 280 & Minerva with her parents in 289.I've copied an excerpt from another researcher's notes that you may already have.If not, e-mail me directly and I will connect you with that person:
