Hi Jerel, thanks for the update and the corrections...I put this info. on there hoping others would find their connections but also would make corrections. I got a major portion of what I put in this posting from a copy of the "The Tincher Tribe" book. It has its mistakes as all genealogy books do when later generations do their own research, find the mistakes, and make corrections. I found info. in the book that was wrong of my g.g.gr.mother Martha Emeline Tincher and husband William Mays and made corrections in my own tree.
I'm sure Minnie and Mina weren't twins for I have Minnie born c1889 and Mina born 1944 in my records.
I have Minnie with parents Randolph (Randall) Tincher and Rebecca Ann Howell married to Archibald G. Mays. I descend from both Tincher and Mays thru my paternal gr.mother who was a Mays, her paternal gr.mother was the Tincher...I also have her with the name of Mina (Minnie) Tincher so this either came from the book or from someone who descended from her. I think I remember someone giving me info. on Minnie and Archibald a while back but I haven't done any work on my Tincher's and Mays in a very long time. I rather think that Minnie had the name of Mina first and then the next Mina (your gr.mother) was probably named after her. The first Mina could have always been called Minnie but I'm sure I only put her as Mina (Minnie) from a descendent who shared their tree with me.
I have Mina Tincher born in the 1940s with parents James Tincher and Thelma Lucy Jones, she has 2 siblings Shirley E. and Benjamin. I'm sure this info. was shared with me by someone but I don't have any of them with spouses. The person who shared the info. probably gave me their spouse and children info. but I didn't put it into my files. I don't put the later generations of others, other than my own direct lines, into my files that much anymore that were born and married into the mid and later 1900s because of keeping their info. private.
I now have Ancestry and Family Tree Maker 2009 and they go together and search on Ancestry for me. You wouldn't even believe the trees that popped up that people have submitted on Minnie Tincher and Archibald Mays when I opened it this morning under Minnie's name. But it doesn't show anything other than what I have in my files for James and Lucy Jones Tincher's children.
A tree on there has Minnie Tincher born the 6 Apr. 1899, I doubt that is correct and another tree has her born 9 Apr. 1888, that sounds more correct, died 2 Jan. 1962. I will check this out before I enter any of it into my files, thanks, Kay.
