Thank you for the info. That is what I found as well. I think the Manis last name could have been something different in Indiana where John W was born. My mother's handwritten notes state the last name could have been Mayo, Manners, Manes, Maines, Maness, etc. He may have been melungeon which could be a reason the last name changed. His son Frank Edward Manis (my great-grandfather) would not tell my grandmother anything about John's family or where they came from.

I am still looking for more information on a John W Manis born in Indiana and died in Arkansas County, Arkansas around 1887 or 1888.
