Ethel Lorene Wright Minteer
Birth: Feb. 6, 1907
Licking County
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov. 12, 1987
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA

Although her grave stone gives her birth year as 1906, my uncle many years ago wrote and told me that it was really 1907, but that she had added a year to her age when she got married, and then just left it that way for the rest of her life. However, in the 1920 census her age was given as 13, which would have meant that she was born sometime in 1906. But the Newark Advocate of Feb 16, 1907 printed her birth announcement, which means my uncle was right. (Yet her birth was recorded as 1906 Feb 6 in a Licking County Birth Register. But that book is a compilation of 1906 and 1907 births, so the year was obviously recorded incorrectly.)

This picture of the house where she lived when she was a little girl was taken in the summer of 2009, nearly 100 years after the one of her on horseback.

She and her parents moved to Tulsa, OK, when she was ten or twelve years old, and she went through school there. She met my grandfather in a grocery store run by a cousin's wife when he was visiting, probably in 1924. They were married January 26, 1925 in Tulsa, then moved back to Avalon, PA, where their first two children were born. They were back in Tulsa visiting when their third child was born.
