|Birth: ||Oct. 13, 1817|
Daughter of James and Ruth Cryer Martin, she married her first cousin, Thomas J. Dare 19 Dec. 1831 in Caldwell Co. KY. He was 16 and she 14. They had two children, a son (name unknown) and Amanda E. Dare (m1850 Wilson K. Brown). Thomas left for Arkansas.
Minerva was living in the home of Samuel Edwards with her daughter in Caldwell Co. KY in 1850. After divorcing Thomas, she married Samuel Edwards in Illinois in 1854. They had at least one son, James H. Edwards.
Her stone has not been found. Samuel Edwards' partially buried stone seems to be here as is their son.
Minerva's death date is approximate from research of Doris Provart Gower.
