Adam Minnich, Justice, Covington; is one of the oldest residents of Miami Co. now living in Covington. He was born in Pennsylvania in 1810; his youth was spent on a farm, and he had the privilege of attending school in winter; in 1832, he came to Montgomery Co., Ohio; in the following year came to Covington, where he has resided continuously ever since. There were not, when he arrived, over half a dozen houses in the town, not one of which is now standing, except as a part of some remodeled building. Mr. Minnich has been identified with the interests of Miami Co., and particularly of Covington, nearly a half-century, having been engaged in merchandising almost continuously until 1860, since which he has occupied some of the local offices, being the present Justice at Covington. He was married in 1839 to Miss Mary A. Shade, daughter of Jeremiah Shade, who was a native of Pennsylvania, and came to Miami Co. about the same time Mr. Minnich did. Mary was born in 1818, and was the mother of fourteen children, ten of whom are living.
