Wesley M. Minard
(1831- ? )


Wesley M. Minard was born in 1831, most likely in Harrison County, OH, the son of Solomon and Rachel (Little) Minard Sr. During his lifetime, he also spelled his name "Miner" and "Minor." 

At the age of 19, in 1850, Wesley resided with his parents in Tuscarawas County, OH, following his father's trade of carpentry.

In 1857, Wesley's father died, leaving a widow and a large number of young children. Wesley submitted a claim against the estate, saying he was owed $59.15. At the time, he was in Illinois, residing in Henry County.

Wesley's fate after that is unknown.
