Happy 163rd Anniversary, Aunt Minerva and Uncle Nathaniel!

163 years ago, 7 June 1857, in Wayne County, Michigan, Minerva B. Jenks, the daughter of Morris and Almira Botsford Jenks, married Nathaniel Barnes, the son of Timothy and Rose Ann Barnes.

Aunt Minerva was my great great grandaunt, the sister of my great great grandmother, Esther Jenks Lee. Minerva and Nathaniel were the parents of three children: Ida Almira (1859), Seth Adelbert (1864), and Erminnie (1866).

Uncle Nathaniel died on 28 September 1871, in Detroit. Aunt Minerva remarried 4 years later. The family relocated to Norfolk, Nebraska, before the birth of her son, Guy Washinton Bolton, with her second husband. It was while in Norfolk, that her second marriage ended. My great grandmother, Effie Clarissa Lee was sent to help with the four children and seems to have found a husband as well since that is where she met and married great grandfather, Lemuel Weaver.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
