Harper's World War II draft card shows he was born Dec 3, 1885 in Donaldson, PA. The SSDI shows he died in Dec 1971 and last lived in Milton, PA. He can be found in the 1920 and 1930 censuses with Irene (Irine)

Lawrence's WWII draft card shows he was born Feb 1, 1880 also in Donaldson. At the time he was living in Mt Ranier, Prince Georges County, MD. Mrs Mabel Minnich of 11th Street, Washington, DC is listed as the person who will always know his address. His WWI draft card has him living in Washington, DC with a wife Margaret.

I could not find him in the 1920 or 1930 censuses. I did find an Elvin Minnich in the 1930 census as the stepson of Walter Dutz and his wife Katherine living in Philadelphia. The SSDI lists an Elvin Minnich born Aug 12, 1909 and died in Nov 1980, last lived in Villas, Cape May, NJ.

I found Joseph and Susan (never as Sarah) in the 1900, 1910 and 1920 censuses in Columbia County under the spellings of Minnich, Minnie and Minnich respectively. In the 1880 I found Joseph Minich with his wife Susan and son Lawrence living in Frailey Twp., Schuylkill County living next door to William Minich 56 and his family. William and family can also be found in the 1870 census in the same location under the misspelling of Mannich (misindexed as Marinich). The family includes Joseph 17. The family is also there in 1860. Donaldson is in Frailey Twp.

Here is someone working on the same family: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=cherylann402&id=I19846

Depending on what you want to find out there are several avenues to take. Death certificates and obituaries can be very helpful. The Historical Society of Schuylkill County, Columbia County Historical and Genealogical Society and possibly the Berwick Family History Center might be able to help you.
