Deceased was 26 years old and had a wife in Italy. Interment was made in Mountain View Cemetery Tuesday. Whether death was accidental or intentional will never be positively known, although indications point toward accident. Rumors of the Italians being called home to take part in the European war lead some to think that he took his life intentionally. He borrowed a gun Sunday morning to go jack rabbit hunting and failing to return Section Foreman Sam Moats organized a search party Monday morning when the body was found. Beside it was the shot gun, one barrel discharged and the hammer of the other cocked. The theory is advanced that he had lain down to rest, laying the gun down beside him and in some way accidentally discharged it, the load entering the back of his head. Apparently death was almost instantaneous. He had been in Davenport but a short time.” (Dav. Tribune: (9-03-1914)

The deceased leaves a family of children, most of whom are grown. His wife died about a year ago. William Minnick was a brother of Former County Treasurer Isaac Minnick, of Davenport.” (Citizen: 8-23-1907); (Edit: Probable brother to Isaac J Minnick, pioneer, and son of Henry and Elizabeth Minnick. In his article in the History of Big Bend, he identifies his brothers as: Wm, a Lincoln County farmer, John , Chas, and James in Kansas, and sisters: Martha, Sarah, and Mary.);  “Wm Minnick, brother of I J Minnick of this city, died very suddenly early Monday morning at his place on Sandflat which is known as a halfway place. Heart failure is believed to have been the cause of his death. He was discovered outside the house by his son Fred the next morning soon after the latter arose. Fred was horrified on going out to stumble on the prostrate form of his father lying on the ground, and the first impression that flashed across his mind was that he had met with foul play. A few minutes later Postmaster Detillian came along and he also felt convinced that a crime had been committed. The face of the dead man was slightly bruised and scratched and blood had trickled down the face from the nose. Mr Detillion at once came to town and informed the officers of Mr Minnick’s death, and quickly the news got abroad that a ghastly crime had been committed, and for hours the friends and neighbors of the dead man were busy speculating on the causes that might have led to the commission of such a tragedy. It was not known that he had any enemies, and yet it was alleged that his face and head had been beaten with a club. Sheriff Level and Dr R P Moore, accompanied by I J Minnick, brother of the deceased, lost no time in getting down to the halfway place. They immediately began to look about for evidence of possible crime, but were unable to discover any. Death had occurred some time between three and six o’clock in the morning. When the face had been washed only tow or three slight scratches were to be found, and they had evidently been inflicted by the fall, resulting from heart failure or whatever malady had overtaken him. The bruises were not sufficiently severe to have caused death, or even serious injury. The deceased had left his bed and gone barefooted to the spring back of the house, possibly to get a drink. It may be he felt weakness coming on and had gone out to get fresh air. One arm was wet above the elbow, showing that he had reached or fallen into the water with it. It is possible he may have fallen at the spring and received the bruises left upon his face. At all events he had arisen and come back to the door before he was finally overcome. His body was still warm when found by his son Fred. He had been making his home with his son and his wife, and was not known to be suffering with heart disease or any other serious ailment. Deceased was 61 years old and is survived by 2 sons and 2 daughters. His wife died nearly two years ago. He had been a resident of the county for the past 18 years, and for the last ten years had resided on a farm near the place on which he died. He was quiet, unobtrusive, a man who lived at peace with everyone, respected and esteemed by his neighbors. The funeral services were held from the home of I J Minnick Tuesday afternoon, Elder Reed officiating, and the remains were buried at Mountain View Cemetery.”  (LCT: 8-23-1907)


Mints, John W:  (1889-1919);  “J W Mints, a pioneer of the Larene country, died at his home in Otis Orchards last Sunday from pneumonia.

A number of old friends of this vicinity attended the funeral.  Deceased was an old settler of the Larene country where he resided for years, going to Otis Orchards some 12 or 15 years ago where he has since made his home.” (DT &T: 10-09-1919);
