Family Group Sheet

Charles Minnix, Sr. And Rachel

**Note - This is a long page.  Remember you can use Edit/Find selection from your browser.**

1. CHARLES1 MINNIX, SR. was born Abt. 1750 in MD, and died 1815 in Franklin Co, VA. He married RACHEL ??. She was born Bet. 1740 - 1750 in MD, and died Aft. 1830 in Franklin Co, VA.

Notes for CHARLES MINNIX, SR.:

1810Census - Franklin co, VA - Charles and wife over 45. Children: males: 10/16, [2] 16/26. females 10/16, [2] 16/26.

Charles Minnix was reportedly born and married in Maryland and then moved to Franklin Co, VA. I have not found him prior to 1788 in Franklin Co, VA when he was listed on a tax list and then again in 1810 on the Census record. Rachel is still living in Franklin Co, VA on the 1820 census as head of household and again in 1830 in household of son, Daniel. So it is evident that Charles died about 1815 in Franklin Co, VA.

Some believe that Charles Minnix, Sr. moved from Franklin Co, VA to Floyd Co, KY. Research has shown that he stayed in VA. The Charles Minnix in KY is his son, Charles, Jr.

(From Ancestry.Com - *I have not seen this will)
"The will of Charles Minnix (born abt. 1750, Franklin, VA) dated June 5, 1814 and probated march 6, 1815 leaves to his children Caty (Catherine); Hugh; John; Jesse; Sicily; Mary; Daniel; Rachel; Abner and Charles Minix, Jr., etc."

This may be our Charles Minnix

Notes for RACHEL ??:

Rachel was born and married in Maryland before moving to Franklin Co, VA with her husband Charles Minnix.

Charles is listed on the 1788 tax rolls for Franklin Co, VA. and then on the 1810 federal Census.

Rachel is listed on the 1820 Census for Franklin Co, VA as head of household. She has males 10/16 and 16/26 and female 16/26 and she is over 45.

On the 1830 census in Franklin Co, VA she is in the household of her son, Daniel. Rachael is 80/90. Daniel and Mary are 30/40 and they have 2 children 0/5 - a boy and a girl.

In 1840 Daniel is no longer in Franklin Co, but Rachel has surely died since she was over 80 yrs. old on the 1830 Census.

Children of CHARLES MINNIX and RACHEL ?? are:

i. SICILY2 MINNIX, b. Franklin Co, VA.

Notes for SICILY MINNIX:

Charles named Sisley in his will along with his other children. That is the only mention of her that I can find.

There was a Sisley Minnix listed in the Prop Tax list for Franklin Co, VA in 1787.

She had 2 H. and 2 Cat. Not tithable. She must be the sister of Charles Minnix, Sr. and not his daughter.

2. ii. CHARLES MINNIX, JR., b. Abt. 1776, Franklin Co, VA; d. Aft. 1850, Floyd Co, KY.

iii. HUGH MINNIX, b. 1784, Franklin Co, VA; d. 1786, Franklin Co, VA.

Notes for HUGH MINNIX:

Ancestry.com - Family Data Collection
Name: Hugh Minnix
Parents: Charles Minnix , Rachel
Birth Place: Franklin County, VA
Birth Date: 1785

No one seems to have any information on Hugh. Many people think he died as early as 1786. He is mentioned in his father's will in 1814 so he had to be alive then.

Possibly married Caty Tederow (of Missouri). ?

Speculation - Could the following be the son of Hugh? One source says Hugh died in 1786 and another source says he may have married Caty Tederow (of Missouri). Need to look further into Hugh's death and possible marriage to a Catherine Tederow -- or to a Nancy b. 1784 in VA.

In 1850 in Hamilton Co, TN there is a Hugh Menius age 32, Mary 25, Children: John 6, Ramona 4, Virginia 2, Temperance 1. Living with him are Nancy Menius age 66 b. VA and Nancy Menius 11 b. VA. Hugh is also b. VA. Mary and all children b. TN. There are many other Menius'/menios' in Hamilton Co, TN in 1850.

Notes for JOHN MINNIX:

John Minnix married Mary Shewman in 1802 (at age 16) in Franklin Co, VA. We have the name of one daughter, Catherine, from this marriage.

We have not found an earlier census record.
