Dear Sharon or Betty;
If you will tell me how you are related to the Minsons it will give me a better idea what to send.

Willis Berry Minson married Rebecca Jane Ward 17 Dec 1871 at Marble Hill, Bollinger Co., MO. Within a very few months Willis was killed in an accident before their son, John Henry Minson was born.
Willis was running a camp job that cut and made boards. He was sliding a very large belt on a running machine with a metal bar. When he slid the belt up the bar got caught between the belt and the spindle and it came around hitting him in the head killing him.
I'm related to Willis through his first wife, Sarah Ann Lennington. Willis was my g-g-grandfather. Do you want me to send you what I have on his second family?
Regards,
Nancy Ellen
