Minor was born Monroe Fairfax Heiskell, to James Monroe and Mary Heiskell. James Monroe was the son of Elizabeth K. Gouverneur and Dr. Henry L. Heiskell. Elizabeth was the daughter of Samuel Lawrence Gouverneur and Maria Hester Monroe. Maria was the daughter of President James Monroe.

At some point, Monroe Fairfax took his grandmother's maiden name, "Gouverneur". According to the comments in several books, he was the last male in the Gouverneur line, "the only man of the name now living" per Historic Homes and Institutions and Genealogical and Family History of New York, Vol. 1 (p. 163)
