  • Notes 
    • Lodomillo Twp. -- A. L. Minkler was born in Lake County, O., in January, 1822. His father, John Minkler, was born in 1780, in VT, where he was married to Asenath Call, and in 1816 settled in Ohio. The subject of this memoir was educated in the common school, and assisted on the farm until his marriage to Elizabeth Minkler, which occurred April 16, 1843. She was born in Geauga County, O. Of seven children born of this union four are living--Violette, wife of Amos Perry; Mortimer W., who married Ann Demill; Ferdinand L., who married Eva Peet, and Burr C., who married Katy Gilchrist. Mr. Minkler farmed in Ohio until the spring of 1854, when he came to Iowa, settling first in Delaware County, where he remained until the fall of 1868, when he purchased his present farm in Lodomillo Township. He owns 140 acres of valuable land, 100 under excellent cultivation, and well stocked. In politics he is a Republican, and has held several township offices. He is one of the representative men of Clayton County. History of Clayton County, Iowa, 1882, p. 897 Tammy Schenekl 2/02
