A branch of our clan active in public service in Western Pennsylvania during the early 1900s was that of Rev. David E. Minerd, seated at right. He is shown with his sons who served in World War I, from left: Dr. Harold 'Daniel' Minerd, William A. Minerd and Ewing D. Minerd. Rev. Minerd oversaw 10,000 weddings and funerals in a 60-year career in Fayette County. Dan served as Mayor of Connellsville and as Treasurer of Fayette County; Bill was Assistant Treasurer of Fayette County; and Ewing was Postmaster of Dunbar and a Treasurer of the Dunbar School Board. Not shown here are Rev. Minerd's daughter Bess Lemon, who was Postmistress of Youngwood, and son Edward E. Minerd, founder of the Minerd Funeral Home of Uniontown.
