In many source materials, this woman was identified as Minna A. Barnsback. However, there are occasions when her given names were reported to be Minna C. This discrepancy is reported more fully on the web page for her funeral notice.

The spelling of the Barnsback family name underwent changes as the family have settled into the culture of 19th century America. The reasons for and nature of those changes was outlined in a biographical sketch of Minna's brother, Henry Clay Barnsback, published in 1887.
