From "The Minteers As I Have Known Them" by Josephine Minteer Dickinson (1961 limited-edition private printing of 200 copies), youngest and last surviving of William Minteer and Mary Nicholson's 85 grandchildren:
"Married Elizabeth Noble in March of 1875. This family was one of the strong families of the U.P. Church in Worthington, involved in choir, Sunday School and all the work of the Church. They made their home with Uncle James in a new house which had been built to replace the old log house. After Uncle James' death, they sold and moved to New Wilmington to better educate their boys at Westminster College. Joe's nephew, Curt, was living there also. Lizzie, a wonderful cook and homemaker, ran the Minteer Club which was a home for students for many years."
Joseph was the only one of his siblings born in the family's new house. In 1860 he and his parents and six brothers and sisters lived there.
In 1870 he and his parents and her sister Eliza and their brother James' daughter Margaret B "Maggie" lived in the big house where all his siblings and several cousins had grown up. His father owned real property worth $9000 and personal property worth $2555.
About 1875 he and his oldest brother swapped houses, which made sense since John Young had the bigger family. Then about 1877 he and his brother James--or possibly James and their father mostly, since Joseph wasn't a carpenter--built a new house for their parents to live in for the rest of their lives, along with Joseph and his growing family.
In 1880 he and Lizzie and their sons James Raymond, age 3, and William, age five months, lived there in that new house, along with his parents and his niece Maggie.
In 1900 he and Lizzie and their three sons still lived there. About 1905 he sold the farm and bought a house in New Wilmington, PA at 131 Market Street (probably North Market). They ran a boarding house for students at Westminster College--Lizzie was the cook.
In 1910 Joseph and Lizzie and their youngest son Merle lived there in New Wilmington, and in 1920 just Joseph and Lizzie. In 1925 he lived with his son Emmett and his family in College Springs, IA. In 1930 he lived with them in Ellwood City, PA.
