Nothing is known of Mintie's background. Her husband, Hart Cummings, is buried at Odd Fellow's Rest. She is supposedly a widow and in a relationship with Theodore Eaves which would explain why they would live in The Old Bacchus Place isolated from major towns.
Her poster lists her as a mother, indicating that she has children.
Theodore makes mention that he is in a relationship with Mintie. Since Red Dead Redemption takes place in a time when interracial couples were shunned, this may explain why they live in such a secluded spot hidden from civilization.
