Randolph  County,  Indiana

The  Winchester  Daily
March 21, 1918
          Minerva Johnson Mincer  was born in Randolph county, Indiana, November 20, 1833, and departed this life at the home of her son, George, in Muncie, Indiana, where she spent the winter, March 14, 1918, aged 84 years, 3 months and 24 days.
          She was united in marriage to Hiram Mincer in 1851. Six sons were born to this union, two of whom died in infancy, and one, John E., after he had arrived to manhood. Three sons, George of Muncie, Indiana, Charles and Andrew of near the old homestead, together with seven grandchildren and nine great grandchildren, two sisters, one of whom lives in Missouri and the other in Kansas, and many other friends and relatives are left to miss her loving presence and counsel.
She gave her heart and life to the Saviour and united with the M.E. church in early life, and continued steadfast to her faith in Him through all of her long life, and her greatest comfort was the Bible, which she read and believed with all her heart, and realized the sustaining grace unto the end.
To die is to land on some quiet shore,
Where billows never break, nor tempest roar;
Ere well we feel the friendly stroke ‘tis o’er.
          Funeral at the Christian church in Winchester, Indiana, conducted by Rev. A. M. Addington. Interment in Fountain Park cemetery.
