"She was interested in family history, and preserved many letters and papers of interest, including the diary her mother kept during the Civil War. This diary relates the hardships suffered by her mother and the children when they had to leave their home at White Post as refugees at the approach of the Federal troops. During these years they lived with relatives in other parts of the State. Minna was a bright and charming lady. She had red hair, which was a characteristic of her brothers also. After her marriage in 1880, they lived in the old Wirt house in Leesburg, which had been the home of her parents since the end of the war. This house was built of stone and was purchased by her father about 1865. Augustine Loughborough was a farmer and a great lover of horses, and spent much of his life in raising them. After their children were grown, Augustine and Minna sold their house in Leesburg and moved to a small farm at Tyson's corner, in Fairfax County. Here they lived until his death in 1931, when Minna went to live with her son Randolph at Fairfax Courthouse." List 3 children & 6 grandchildren.
