Barbara--Thanks for your inquiry.I'm always eager to learn any Minga information.My paternal great grandfather was Miller Minga, b. 12-23-1822, in Thom, Tenn.His mother thought to be a Catherine Minga, and my effort to identify her better led me to the Peter Minga of Sullivan County.She lived with him for a while, but nothing indicates she was his wife or daughter.
These Minga's lived close to the Roller family. Peter age 76 in 1850 Census, but probably died by 1860 Census. Catherine Minga shown living in home of Sollomon Roller, age 20, in Dist. 7, Home #542, Eden's Ridge.Next door, Home #541, is Miller Mingy family.This isn't much help, I fear, but I'll be glad to answer any questions if I can.Best wishes.Betty
