I have seen a picture of Minnie at about the time of her marriage to Fred. She was very beautiful.
I have read Minnie's childhood "Autograph Album" and it contains many entries from schoolhood friends in Yates, Orleans Co., NY in the year 1882, the last being 5 Oct 1883. By 11 Jan 1884, I see an entry from a school friend in Yakima, WA--followed by several others through 3 May 1885. This would indicate that the family moved to the city of Yakima in Washington Territory in late 1883. One undated probably early one is from "Someret NY" probably Somerset, as well as another dated "Feb. the 26" from Somerset.

Savage of Detroit Mich. (signed in Medina, Orleans Co, NY) 5. undated - Lydia E. M (mother) 6. undated - Blanche Gates (cousin) 7. undated - H. A. Stevenson of Kenton (OH?)
