  1. LUCY MINK WAS BORN BEFORE 1893 AS YOU HAVE STATED. HER FATHER, EZRA MINK, HAD DIED IN 1889 AS HER HUSBAND ALSO DIED. YOUR PROOF READERS NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT HAS BEEN PRINTED.

  2. Do you know where the children of Ezra and Mary Mink were born? Where did Lucy Mink live after her mother, Mary Mink, died? Also do know who are the parents of Ezra Mink? I do not believe he was born in Rochester, NY.

  3. I do not believe that Ruth Cameron Tucker was born in Akron, Ohio. I believe she was born in New York State. She lived in the Akron, Ohio area about 1840 to 1843. She died in Independence, Ohio in 1843 and is buried in Akron, Ohio where her brother, Daniel Cameron and family are buried.

    If you have some information showing that Ruth was born in Akron, Ohio and to whom she was born to, I would trueley appreciate knowing of this information and where I could find it. As I have been trying to find out who Ruth’s parents are and where she was born.

    Thank you for your time with this matter.
