BIOGRAPHY: Olson, Barbara Onyett, "Epilogue on the Onyett-Lothrop
Families in Palermo"; "Diggins" Vol. 41 No 2(1997); recvd by corr from
Allen County Public Library, 11/99; "On leave at home, Floyd (Onyett) met his future bride, Irma ethyl Lothrop and swept her off her size four feet. Irma (named Mimi by my children and a name she came to love) originated from an impoverished line of two
families of England's nobility. Her mother, Mini Olive Baxter, was a
direct kin of George Baxter, who arrived in Massachusetts in 1643. Mini was a pioneer more so even than her ancestor.....to head west on her own and start a new life. Perhaps it was because of a broken romance. She was only twenty when she stopped at Dayton, Nevada, where she met Edmund Lothrop. They were married, and two children were born in Nevada. Then they came to California and Edmund, instead of settling on the fine river land available, ensconced his family at Strong town Hill near Harleton, left them and headed back to Nevada. He returned periodically, begot Mina
with child and then again returned to Nevada - leaving Mina with children and little funds. Such was our mother's childhood. Then she met Floyd."

    Interview of Alberta Ruth Lothrop by Linda Vaught in November 1999 by telephone: Alberta Ruth Lothrop was a surviving twin. The baby that died was called Little olive and she is buried under the grave markers of Edmund & Mina Olive. Ruth rememers stories of Edmund and Mina Olive coming from Nevada by wagon with their children and she was told the two older daughters walked alongside the wagon and they had their milk cow tied to the back of the wagon.
