I'm not related.
The 1860 census of Upper Towamensing Twp. shows Geo. Minehart 26, Christian 20, Henry 3 and Geo. 2 living with Peter Keubler 76 and Cath. 64.
The 1850 census of same shows Christena Kibler 11 with same parents. Peter and Catharine Kibler are listed in the 1870 census of Towamensing Twp.
The 1910 census shows Christina as a widow.
Some research at the Carbon County Archives and Courthouse in Jim Thorpe may prove helpful. If George died before 1906 his death may have been recorded at the Carbon County Register of Wills (the record would now be at the Archives). It won't tell you much except where he is buried and possibly exactly where he was born. If he died after 1905 the PA Dept of Health would have his death certificate. It should have his parents and possibly exactly where he was born. The problem that unless you have the exact date you will probably have to pay for an extended $34 search. The Register of Wills office may have his estate file which might have the date.
You can also try the Dimmick Memorial Library in Jim Thorpe for George's obituary (they're all within a few blocks of each other). It may or may not tell you much. Sometimes back then they are little more than funeral notices.
It's a long shot but one of the marriage records or death certificates for George's children might list exactly where he was born.. Starting in 1885 marriage records for Carbon County would be at the Register of Wills Office.
Oddly there is actually more records from Carbon County at the Lehigh County Historical Society than anywhere in Carbon County. The Easton Area Public Library also has some records. But neither collection for Carbon County is substantial.
