My gr grmo, MINERVA BARNES SAFFELL, born October 7, 1837 in Lexington, KY, was the child of John W. Saffell (born 1802, Ohio County, KY) and Ruth Saffell, who married in 1824 in Ohio County, KY. Minerva had these siblings:Martha, America,Jacob, John and Silas. I would like to make contact with anyone with info about this branch of the SAFFELL family & very much want to contact living members of the family. MINERVA SAFFELL married J. J. (John Jacob Justus McGinnis) on January 31, 1856, in Mercer County, Illinois. My grandfather, JOHN HARVEY McGINNIS, was the first child of Minerva and J. J. McGinnis.
