Minnie Carroll was born on May 22, 1876 in St Clair County, Missouri, the daughter of William Henry Carroll and Sophia Catherine Sanders Carroll. The family lived west of Johnson City in St Clair County where Minnie grew to womanhood.
Minnie married John Logan Dines on October 14 1896. After living on several different farms, the couple finally retired to Appleton City.

In 1943, John and Minnie sold the home in Johnson City and bought one in Appleton City in St Clair County. This property was purchased for $800. By this time the pension John was receiving had increased to $12.00 a month. Later, Minnie was also entitled to a pension. They eventually had an income of $18.00 a month.

The home in Appleton City was located in the center of town. It was not, by today's standards, modernized. The heat for the home was a coal stove which was located in the living room. Minnie had a wood cook stove in her kitchen where she turned out large meals for family and visitors. Later she was given a gas stove, but she continued to cook most of the meals on the wood stove. The two stoves sat side-by-side in the kitchen. Minnie had a rather large garden in the back yard where she also raised chickens. Her fried chicken dinners were a real treat for visiting family members. John and Minnie also had a telephone just inside the front door in the living room. Minnie would often call and invite other family members when visitors arrived. Of course, a short visit with her sister, Cora, came first as she was the telephone operator. The house remained this way until after the death of John and Minnie when it was sold and torn down. The property brought a price of $1700.
