|Birth: ||Sep. 16, 1813|
|Death: ||Jul. 1, 1892|
daughter of John A Clark (1784-1836) and Katherine Best (d.1837); also had brother James and sister Mary "Polly"
From the memoirs of Frank Dumm:
"The day [Samuel] was born his mother died at the age of 29 years. This left James Minteer (Grandfather Minteer) with a family of five children, counting his nephew, "Cousin James". His sister, Aunt Mary Rayburn, took the baby, Samuel, and kept him until he was over a year old. She had a baby of about the same age and raised them as twins. Two of Grandfather's other sisters, Betty and Nancy Minteer, not yet married, and his brother Alex's widow, Mrs. Nancy Minteer, kept house for him at different times for about three or four years, then he married Jane Clark. She is the one we knew and loved as "Grandmother Minteer". She proved an excellent step-mother for the five little motherless children who welcomed her as their new mother. I have heard my mother, Uncle John and Uncle James all say that their own mother could not have been any better to them than their step-mother was. Jane Clark had several brothers: William, John, Nicholas, and Samuel Clark. The Leila Clark who married Curtis Minteer was a daughter of Samuel Clark."
Their grave marker was quite worn, even by the 1980s when my Uncle Marvin decided to have a marker made and put in the ground on her side of the marker. So he read her age as 73 years instead of 78 years, and had a birth year of 1818 put on the new stone instead of 1813.
