At the time of the 1870 census, the one-year-old Minnie is with the family in Hampden, Penobscot, Maine.
Our Minnie does not appear to be the Minnie G. Whitten that married William Berry in Saco in 1894. She was 19 years old at the time of the marriage, meaning she was born about 1875. She is listed as the daughter of William Whitten of Biddeford.
Nor does she appear to be the Minnie A. Whitten who married an Alonzo J. Knowlton in Vinalhaven in 1896. This Minnie was 26 at the time of her marriage, meaning she was born about 1870. However, her parents appear to be WA(?) Whitten of Vinalhaven and Montville and Martha Berry of Palermo.
