Minnie Boone Ingersoll (2x great granddaughter
of Daniel Boone, the pioneer), was born December 18, 1882, in Caldwell,
Idaho. She was a daughter of Theodore Warner and Martha  Alice Thompson
Boone, was an identical twin and one of eleven children. She graduated from
the College of Idaho Academy (a 2-4 year preparatory school), in Caldwell, in
1901 and taught in the Caldwell, Idaho and the Dillon, Montana public schools.

Minnie also taught in Indian Mission Schools in Mexican border towns of
Arizona and New Mexico. She was teaching school in El Paso, Texas when she
met and married Guy Earl Ingersoll, a soldier stationed at Fort Bliss. Minnie
was eleven years Guy's senior....We don't think he knew it.

On September 17, 1919, Minnie and Guy had a son, Willard Bowman Ingersoll,
whom Guy named for his father. By 1924, Minnie had left Guy and moved with
her son to the Los Angeles, California area where at least one of her sisters, her
twin May (Mae) Boone Schmidt, husband Escher and child, Caroline were living.

In 1940, Minnie's son, Willard, married Helen B. True. In September of 1941
Minnie's granddaughter, Geraldine Frances was born. By 1945 Willard and Helen
were divorced. Helen soon remarried and moved out of state with Geraldine.
Minnie never saw her granddaughter again. Willard remarried and had two sons,
Gary Clark and William Robert.

Minnie never remarried. She reared her son, earned a masters degree in
education and taught in the Los Angeles Public Schools until about 1950, when
she retired. Minnie died May 19,1966, leaving one son, one granddaughter, two
grandsons and one great grandson.
