These Minerva Morgans lived in Oregon but had come from Virginia via Ill., I hope there is enough here for you to identify if this is your line, our Minerva's Dad died just when she was born and we have not kept up with her family so if there is a connection you would be a great resource.

Thomas Edward Cartwright was my ggrandfather through his daughter Minnie Maryland Cartwright Elliott. Thomas's wife was Lou Emma Browning. Thomas Edward's Father was
Thomas Andrew Cartwright who served as a Lieutenant in the 45th VA Infantry CSA.
William Cartwright his brother served in the same regiment. He was captured at the battle of Piedmont and sent to Camp Morton, Indianapolis, IN in Feb 1865 and was originally buried in Evergreen Cemetery the Confederate Graves were moved to Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis. A monument to the soldier that died at Camp Morton is in Garfield Park in Indianapolis.

Minerva Morgan died in a flash flood. Old family story.

According to another researcher Clarissa Murphy was the younger sister of Thomas P
Cartwright's second wife who was from Pike County Kentucky.

I have quite a number of Cartwright photos. I met Thomas Edward, Lou Emma and Uncle Fred when I was a child.
