I think that your L. C. Minard and my Great Great Grandfather must be the same man. My Great Grandfather was Francis Forester Minard born March 25, 1857 In Iowa. I have a little information on this family. This branch of my family is a real fustration to me. I just keep hitting a stone wall.Would love to here from you . Especially about the family bible. Where is it? Who owns it and how did it come into their posession?
