While doing some family research we were quite surprised to find out that the person my Grandmother always thought was her grandfather isn't.The above mentioned person is.The only problem is that we can find very little information on him other than what is below
He was married 4 times in the following order:Susan Cherry; Mary Anis (Molly) Albee (my great great grandmother); Mary Amos; and Amanda Brown.
There are the following children: Pearl Mintonye, Flora (Mintonye) Hull; George A. Mintonye; Carrie (Mintonye) Barksdale; and Vella May (Smith) Bowen (My great grandmother).Flora lived in Leon, IA; George in Davis City, IA; and Carrie in Witchita, KS.We don't have any more information on the children.
We do know that Alvino was born October 25, 1832 in Dearborn, MI.Died January 14, 1926 in Davis City, IA.Buried in Garden Grove, IA.
Any more information on this man or his family would be very appreciated.We are at a loss as this point.
