I'm looking for a Millard MINTER, bd 1857, KY, but...
the correct father for this guy is (I think) James P Minter, born in TN. All of the census records that I have seen hold Millard's father's place of birth as Tennessee, not Kentucky. It's been a few years since I've looked at this, but...
1860 M F Minter (4, KY) and living with the Cooper family, Marshall County, KY
Probable father, J P Minter (37, TN) is a few houses down with wife E. Minter (33, KY)
1870 Millard F is with father James P Minter (47, TN) and mother Eliza W (43, KY)
1880 Millard F (23, KY) is with father, James Minter (56, TN) and mother Elizabeth Minter
1890 - yeah, right
1900 - Minter, Millard, bd Nov 1857, KY, living in Oak Cliff, Dallas, TX with wife, Jessie P
1910 - Minter, Millard F, 53, bp KY with wife, Jessie P (43)
1920 - Minter, Millard F, 65, bp KY with wife, Jessie P (52, bp TX)
1920 - James M Minter (son of Millard Minter) in Dallas with wife Rubie D (nee SAPP), Harry G (probably adopted child of Rubie and George PHILLIPS <- can't find him). Sons Millard Pand James R are also given, along with sister of Rubie (Leona nee SAPP, married name THOMPSON <-- another one I can't find).
Anyway, I cannot find the connection that Leroy is giving, putting Millard's father as someone different that James from Tennessee. Any light you could shed would be most grateful!! Thanks.
