Searching for relatives in the Philadelphia area
Susan Minor-McMaw
- Close

I am looking for any relatives I may have in the Philadelphia area. My father, who's name was Major Minor served in the USAF stationed at RAF Manston, Kent, UK in 1951/52, he left the UK in 1952 but returned in 1954 for a short time. To my knowledge I have 5 half siblings (all female). I only know a couple of names one being Barbara and another either Angela or Mary. One of my half siblings was born in June of 1953. My father passed away in 1990/91, survived by his wife Suzanne(not too sure if the spelling is correct).

Can anyone out there help me.

I googled "Suzanne Minor Pennsylvania" and came up with a Susie Minor of Hazel AV, Philadelphia, PA who is in her 80s.  The site said she had 5-6 relatives.  Does this help and seem to fit your profile?

Thank you so much for your reply. I'm greatful for any leads, the only other details I have is that at the time of my Fathers passing, the family were living on Thomas Street in Philadelphia and he had something to do with the railways in New Jersey.

Yes, there is also a Susie [Susan?] Minor on Thomas Street in Philadelphia.  I found this on spokeo.com but they wanted another $5 per month for more info, including phone number.  So there are 2 Susie Minors in Phila. or else she owns 2 properties.  I'm not sure what you want to do with the information, whether you want to talk by phone or send her a letter or connect by email?

It's tough that the family had all girls, since they may have married and now go by different surnames.  Let me see if I can google one of the other first names.

OK, I found info for a Barbara Minor who makes beads & jewelery! 

 http://www.jewelrymakingdaily.com/blogs/tips-techniques/archive/2010/09/10/sliders-what-s-in-a-name.aspx 

I have taught at The Bead Garden store that's mentioned in the text!  Small world!  At the end, there's a company site listed for barbaraminor.com

Try contacting her that way.  BTW she makes beautiful stuff, but I have no idea if she's your half-sister.  There are 41 other Barbaras listed across the US. 

 I would reaerch your father on the computer & see what the obits say & where they lead you.  They may list his former employers & give you other hints.  Good luck!
