She married William Thomas McMasters and they lived near Hogshooter, OK. She was a midwife, and traded services with a negro midwife who lived nearby. Minnie had thirteen children, including a pair of twins, and several miscarriages between 1894 and 1915. On one occasion, Minnie worked in the fields all day and gave birth that evening. She died in 1928 and is buried at Nowata. Many of her descendants still live in the Bartlesville/Nowata area.
