bullet  General Notes:

from: Minters of Henry County by Donald W. Chamberlayne :
Anthony Minter
Anthony [4], the third son of John and Susannah Minter, was born in 1793 or 1794, based on the census of 1860 which showed him as age 66. In 1820 he married Jane Bybee, and they settled in Shelby County, Missouri, where they were among the first settlers of the area. Anthony was a physician, according to the 1860 census.
Aside from the census and Ken Storm's listing, most of what we know about Anthony and Jane and their lines comes from a descendant, Becky Whittemore [10] of Utah, who is the person to contact <sources.htm> regarding further information on this branch of the Minters.
Judging from the names they gave their five male children, it appears that Anthony and Jane may have had a keen interest in history. Born between 1821 and 1833 were Washington, Franklin, Columbus, Lafayette, and Monroe Minter. (Names and dates of birth of the five were discovered written in an old math book in a museum in Pleasant Hill, Missouri. Source: Becky Whittemore, email of Jan-08-2007). The youngest of them, Monroe, was born in Missouri in 1833, married Louise Arnold, and settled in Kern County, California, in or near Bakersfield. Their grandson, First Lieutenant Hugh C. Minter, a pilot in the Army Air Corps and veteran of World War I, was killed in a mid-air collision over March Field in 1932. In his memory, the newly constructed Minter Field, in Kern County, was dedicated in 1942. According to the Minter Field Air Museum:
"By July of 1942, Minter Field had become the largest training base of its type on the west coast.... During the course of the War, more than 11,000 Army Air Corps Cadets graduated from Minter Field, deployed around the world to fly in all theaters of operations." []
