In the 1892 New York Census, a Mary Menansen is a servant in Lyons, Wayne County, born about 1873.

In the Wayne County Directory for 1891-92, a Joseph Menanson is listed as a shoemaker. Page 66 Since he is the only Menanson in the directory, there is a likely connection.

There is a Lyons County Historical Souvenir Book on, with a photograph (poor quality) of Joseph Menanson.

Joseph Menanson is also listed in the military history of Wayne County.

Joseph and his wife Elizabeth

Attached is a marriage announcement for Joseph Menanson and Libbie Rohr.

I also saw a James Howard Menanson in the census - a possible brother to Mary Menanson. Since she named her son James Howard, that seems a very likely fit.
