Minerva was the daughter of Soloman and Amy Combs, formerly of Kentucky. On August 15, 1858 she married Foster A Brown in Franklin County, Illinois. They were the parents of Emma Jane and Ada Rebecca. Foster is last seen on the 1870 Federal Census in Franklin, Illinois, before they migrated to Kansas. Minerva reports being a widow in 1880 in Kansas. All we have is this headstone with no indication he is buried here.
