Mother, Daughter, Sister, Wife.
Minnie is the oldest child of Joseph and Eva L (Irons) Clark. Eva Clark passed away in 1890, and her father subsequently married Miss Marileda E Garber in 1892. Minnie is the sister of Ernest and Myrta (Mrs. Max A Pfiester), and the half-sister of Joseph G, Bernice (Mrs. Clayton E Barkhuff), Florance A (Mrs. Williard T Hull), Lucy E (Mrs. Wesley Andrews), and Earl Clark .
At the age of 18 Minnie married Nahum Merrick Childs Jr., son of Nahum and Marianne (Thomas) Childs, in Eaton Rapids on September 2, 1894. She and Nahum had three children: Roy Merrick (1896-1898), a child who's birth and death records have not been located, and a daughter who lived only 1 1/2 days. Minnie's death occurred 12 days after the birth of her daughter. Her death certificate states the cause of death as puerperal convulsions - an all too frequent and tragic result of unsanitary conditions during childbirth throughout this time period.
Nahum Childs Jr later married Mrs. Bertha(Sweet) Rogers in Ingham Co., on 24 Dec 1900. Nahum and Bertha did not have children.
