Minerva Sargent Strobel Found--Contest Winner

MB was the winner of our Find Minerva and win a year of Casefile Clues Contest

Minerva died in Evanston, Illinois on March 6, 1943. She is buried in Ottumwa Cemetery, Ottumwa, Iowa. Minerva and her husband John appear in the database of Illinois Deaths on FamilySearch (Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths, 1916-1947), which indicate that they are buried in Ottumwa, Iowa. 

The extract from Minerva's death record on FamilySearch indicates she was born in 1848 in Rockford, 
Illinois and that her maiden name was Sargent. 

There is only one more sibling of Ira Sargent for whom I need to locate a death record. Little is known on Minerva other than her death, so we'll be working to learn at least something of her children. 

We'll have an update on the blog and a longer follow up article on this couple in a future edition of Casefile Clues
