I dont want to be a wet towel here.I would like to know if you have hard information on Albert Gideon's parents besides what Gerry produced.I talked to Gerry during its development and I still have alot of questions. 1) There were other McMindes men in the area (including James McMindes who was young enough to be Alberts parent and moved with the Mormon Movement (I am ssuming) to utah in the 1850's).Gerry did a good job with the tools available at the time but with the advent of new search tools I have found alot more questions than answers.There are about 6 McMindes family lines in the 1840's and 1850's.Only 2 of those have been researched with hard evidence provided.
Please do not propagate an assumption as fact.I know that was never Gerry's intention.
I have alot of research that I wish I had time to compile - hopefully I can complete this work with certainty and not conjecture.
