John Russell Minter

It has been a few weeks since I last posted an ancestor. That was Olive Sarah Wright who finished up the 3rd generation back from me. Now it is time to start the 4th. We start with my father's father's father's father. This is the first of my ancestors in this breadth first search who lived through the US Civil War. On the Confederate side this time.
