She was Emmeline’s younger sister (she was 27 and a half when she married, and had been just over 8 years old when her husband (Gallwey-1) married her eldest sister Emmeline). She had a daughter, Rita (b. 24.11.1912 Transkei). In 1914 the family returned to PMB from the Transkei. According to Shelagh (Gallwey-11) “Munty” was very pretty with violet coloured eyes and died in the Spanish Flu epidemic that spread to SA in September 1918. He was very fond of her and after Munty's death, one of the children had to go to the cemetery with their father every Sunday morning, to put flowers on her grave. She was very kind and "Bobby" (Gallwey-10) remembered her with deep affection but Shelagh did not have any vivid memories of feeling near to her. Moyra (Gallwey-9) and Michael (Gallwey-4) resented the second marriage but Michael, in later years, confessed to feeling sorry that they had been so unfriendly to Munty.

However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Minna:
