I have Minerva Starks born 1834 in Buffalo, N.Y. and family moved to Pa. in 1840. So this says Minerva was 6 yrs. old. Her father (Nathaniel sold land in 1838 that was part of the Tonnawanda Reservation) and the rest of the info is very close to what I have. One of the questions was Alvah or Alvin? Alvah was the birth name but my great grandfather went by Alvin E.(Edgar)Starks. Was a short in stature, bearded woodsman who`s final days were spent in the township of Newfield, Tompkins Co.,N.Y. Buried in Trumbull`s Corners Cemetery in 1925. And yes he was born in 1850.
