I am descended from a William Mann, born ca. 1808 in Floyd
Co. Here is my dilemma, there was a William Mann &
Samuel Mann in 1810 Floyd Co. Census, who I think are brothers.
William Mann had 1 male 26-45, 1 female 16-26, 1 female
16-26 and 1 female 45 & over. This is my theory:
1 male 26-45 is William Mann
1 female 16-26 is William Mann's wife
1 female 16-26 is Nancy Mann (sister to William & Samuel Mann)who married Jeremiah Patrick,April 25,1811 in Floyd Co.
1 female 45 & over could be William & Samuel's mother. There was an Alley that gave permission for Nancy to marry. Some think this is a man, but couldn't it be a woman?
A Samuel Mann also in 1810 Floyd Co. Census:
1 male under 10
1 male 26-45
1 female under 10
1 female 16-26
1 male under 10 would be my William Mann (1808)
1 male 26-45 is Samuel
1 female under 10 could this be Sally who married Rueben Arnett?
1 female 16-26 this could be Samuel's first wife, his second wife was Preshi Dykes, who he married on Feb. 26, 1815.
I think that Samuel is my William's dad because the older William did not list a male child in 1810 and Samuel did.
My William (1808)lived in Breathitt Co. and paid taxes from 1840 to 1850 (have not checked years after that). But in 1849 the only time he listed paying taxes in Floyd Co. Land--210, Water Course--Licking, Value of each tract--213, 1 white male over 21, horses & mares--3, value of horses & mares--85, cattle--17, value of cattle--85, 5 children bet. 5 & 16 years of age, Value under the equalization law--100, Total--883.
I believe he inherited this land from Samuel his father, can anyone tell me where Samuel lived in Floyd Co?
I would appreciate any comments on this theory. But I have researched the Manns for 10 years or better. I believe tha tWilliam b. 1808, mar. Rhoda Howard in 1832 in Floyd Co. is the son of Samuel Mann. Children he had by Preshi Dykes are Thomas Mann (lived in Breathitt Co) and a John Mann also lived in Breathitt Co.
