      "We used to call her Aunt Minnie.  She was close to my mother.  I remember her in her as a woman in her 90's. Her family owned a Foreign Car Agency in Wenonah, NJ"

      JSH notes:

      1880 Census and 1920 Census says she was born in PA, her father b. Maine, and her mother b. Ireland.  Her age given for the 1920 census is 55 indicating b. 1865. [8]
