Trying to confirm/seeking information father of Minerva (also shown sometimes as Manervy) Bland, b. 12 June 1862 in Savanna, Hardin Co, TN; d. 2 July 1943 in Wylie, Collin Co, TX -AND- her brother, Charles Loughlin Bland, b. in March 1869 in Tennessee; d. 24 Dec 1909 in Wylie, Collin Co, TX.
In one census, these two are shown as Minerva and Charles Blan. The mother of these two was Edith E. (??) who later married George Thompson.
Who was actually the father? Was his name Blan or Bland? Any information appreciated. Thank you.
