Minnie Frances King was born on Sept. 29, 1934 in Parksville, Boyle Co., Kentucky on Tennessee Ridge. She was the daughter of Herstle King (1915-1997) and Ollie Pearl "Polly" Hillard (1915-1992), the first of their seven children.

Minnie's father, Herstle, was the son of Thomas Letcher King (1881-1973) and Minna Susan Gooch (1883-1971). Herstle was born in Kingtown, McCreary Co., KY. Herstle's parents moved their family from Kingtown to Parksville when he was just one year old. Herstle's father, Tom, was a great grandson of Thomas Murray King (1790-1880), the patriarch of the King family in McCreary Co., KY.

Minnie's mother Polly was born in Parksville, KY. She was the daughter of Benjamin Franklin "Ben" Hillard (1882-1959) and Ira Mathie Mae Hillard (1888-1929). Ben was born in Washington Co., KY, Mathie in Boyle Co., KY.

About 1955 Minnie married Leslie "Les" Caldwell (1929-1998) in Parksville, Boyle Co., KY. Les was 25 years of age, Minnie 20. Born in Owen Co., KY, he was the son of Everett Caldwell (1879-1946) and Maggie Lee Pike (1905-1956). For over two decades Les and his wife's father worked side-by-side on the King family farm. Les proved to be a wonderful son-in-law. He was good natured, hard working and dependable.

Minnie died in an auto accident on Dec. 15, 1983 at the age of 49. She was buried in the Parksville Cemetery in Parksville, Boyle Co., KY next to her paternal grandparents, Tom and Minna King. Years later, her parents were buried in front of them.
