Information on William and Martha Minter's Family names and ages is found in a Bible that was found in the estate of Mrs S. A. Mitchell (Aggie Bell Sherer) of Sharon, SC on Friday Dec 28, 1973.
Printed and published by M. Carey & Son, 126 Chestnut-Street, Phila., PA in 1818. pp. 679. Family records of the Minter Family. It is now part of the Sherer Collection at Winthrop University at Rock Hill, SC.
The following information was copied from the Sherer-Minter papers found at the Dacus Library, Winthrop University, Rock Hill, SC. It appears to be from a portion of a compendium of many family names that were all a part of a book, and published in limited quantity.
Note that some of the information that I transcribed, as it was written, does not coincide with some current thought. Example: the date of immigration of John Minter and Frances his wife, is apparently incorrect for even if they were born in 1680 (immigration) then they would have been at least 56 years when William was born in 1736. This is unreasonable.
Note that I have included only Minter Family names as they are pertinent to the Minter line, and not the Sherer folks.
This information was from an old Bible. "Philadelphia, Published and sold by Kimber and Sharples, at their Book Store, No. 93 Market Street, 1824." pp. 131-133. The above-mentioned pages were copied by an Oscar Minter Sherer, son of Absalon Sherer"

The following is an excerpt from YCGHS (York County Genealogical Historical Society?), March 2000, pp. 22. forwarded to John B. Minter by Bill Minter of Columbia, SC.
JOHN MINTER'S WILL
Some of the old wills make interesting reading. Take John Minter's will (York County Estate Records, Case 7, File 281) for instance. Minter died in 1839[ probably filed will in 1839 as records show he died 12-16-1846-JBM]. He lived close to the Chester County line and there is some indication that had land on both sides of the line. He directed that all of his movable property be sold except his "patent clock and one bed and covering." Nowhere in the will does he mention what he intended to happen to the patent clock or the bed and covering. He said the money that resulted from the sale of his movable property was to be divided into four parts. One of the four parts was to go to Jesse Gwinn and wife Mary A. Gwinn "first above mentioned one half of this Last bequest to go to the sole & separate use of the said Mary A Gwinn if the said Jesse Gwinn continues his present deranged state of mind." Figure out what that means!
John Minter divided his land in rather imprecise terms. He left Elizabeth Minter, [this Elizabeth is probably Elizabeth *****(Sherer) Minter, wife of Jesse Jackson Minter- JBM] "her present house and farm. . ." with one of the lines described as "passing the buzzard rest poplar." Old-timers used to refer to certain places that were favorite spots for buzzards to sleep at night and rear their young as "buzzard rests." Generally these spots were isolated but near water. Apparently Minter's buzzards favored a large poplar tree, but did Elizabeth's land include the poplar, or not?
As for the patent clock, the appraisers valued it at $3.00. but one of the Minter sons bought it at the "crying sale" for $5.00. Minter's thermometer was appraised at 50_ but sold for $1.80.
A 6-volume encyclopedia was purchased by three different people with one man getting the first two volumes, another the next two and the third the last two. Each volume sold for 50 cents. Minter was apparently a well-read man, owning several dozen books. Sold from his library were: Ferguson's Astronomy with plates, 2 vol.; Euclid's Elements, 2 vol.; Moore's Geography, 2 vol.; 1 Walker's Dictionary, etc. William Shearer, bought the Bible, no doubt for his wife Martha, one of Minter's daughters. [This may prove that there was truly a Minter Family Bible.]
Was Minter a doctor? (He owned a thermometer.) Was he a schoolteacher? (He had many books). On second thought, he wasn't a teacher. (He was a man of wealth; his "movable property" sold for $2,267.22 and no schoolteacher would have had that much money!)
