Minnie Boettcher was one of Carl Boettcher’s daughter. Carl and his family (wife and six children) arrived in Alder in 1895.

Minnie was tough and smart. Is was she that treated her brother Willie’s serious ax wound. (Click HERE for details.)

The family hacked a ranch out of the wilderness and their heirs are still living there today.
