==========================

H. C. Minor, planter, Houma, La., who was originally from Adams county, Miss., born in 1841, is one of the best known men in Louisiana and has no superior, if an equal, in the state as a sugar planter. His father, W. J. Minor, was born in Mississippi in 1808, and was educated by private tutors. Although his homestead was in Adams county, Miss., he opened up land in Terre Bonne parish, La., as early as 1828, and soon became the owner of large tracts in that, Ascension and Concordia parishes. In 1864 he came to Terre Bonne parish and settled on the property now owned by his son, H. C. Minor. There his death occurred in 1869. He was not a politician, was of a retiring disposition and ever shrank from public notice. He was a sporting man and kept a stable of fine racing horses. He was married to Miss Rebecca Gustine, mother of subject, and this union was blessed by the birth of eight children--seven sons and one daughter. Mr. Minor was deeply interested in education and religious matters and was a strict member of the Episcopal church. His father, Major Stephen Minor, was a native of Carlisle, Penn., and was a major of the Spanish army, capturing Mobile, Ala., three times from the Indians. He settled in Mississippi and was (blank) to Govenor Gayoso, the first governor of the state. He took an active part in all affairs of a laudable nature and was public-spirited citizen. He was appointed by the government to run the lines between Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. His death occurred when he was scarcely sixty years of age. The Minors and Gustines are both of English descent. H. C. Minor was educated in the private schools of Mississippi and subsequently engaged in planting with his father, suceeding him in the plantation. He selected as his companion in life Miss Anna Butler, and their nuptials were celebrated in 1875. Mr. Minor has enlarged and greatly improved his plantation, and during the year 1890 he made 3,500,000 pounds of sugar, mostly yellow clarified. He has two sugar-mills, one six and the other five-roller, and the capacity about 150,000 pounds per day. He has two vacuum pens, one eight and the other ten feet, double and triple effect, and these have a capacity of 250,000 pounds per day. He has two bagasse burners and all other modern improvements. Mr. Minor affiliates with the republican party in his political views and is looked upon as the coming man. In 1889 he was a candidate for congress. He has been a member of the Episcopal church since 1859 and takes an active interest in religious works.
