The following letters have been sent to the website from researchers and others working on various branches of the Mankin family. I have posted them here, as they include so much interesting information. As you may find more about each other, perhaps you will notice that someone else is working on your area of interest too.

There was also a John Mankin " of Durham " who did not serve in the Revolutionary War, but made a deposition that he could not due to family obligations. There were two John Mankin men in Chas. Co. at the time. Of course, the William listed in the 1790 census is called Sr., so there must have been a Jr. somewhere. If you could give me a citation on the sale of the Susannah Maynor/James Mankin land, I might be able to determine where it was located. And I'll try to figure out where District 7 was. The numbers and lines of the districts changed over time, so it would help to know when the reference to District 7 occurs. I'm not an expert on the Mankin family - although I've collected a fair amount of iinfo on the family in the course of finding the evidence for Mrs. Tucker - but I'm fairly familiar with Charles Co. records and the families and locations there. There are indexes which help to locate the patents ( land records) which define the early tracts. Most of the early tracts were named and those names often survive to the present. That enables one to trace properties and families rather well. Let me know what information you have and what will help you, and I'll see what I can find.

Hi,
I'm hoping you can help me. I'm looking for information on a Mollie(Molly) Angeline Mankin from Rutherford County, TN, born 1873. I have found also record of a female M.A. Mankin (possibly mother?) married in Rutherford County in 1857 to a Thomas Welch. Do you have any connections to these at all? Thank you!!!

My name is Anna Marie Mankin. I am Richards wife here in NC. Back in the 70's is started to do research on the Mankin name and I had several letters from Rev. M Steadman. at that time he told me he was planning on writing a book very shortly. I never did hear from him again and was wondering if he ever did publish his book. Do you know? I would like to get a copy if he did. You did a GREAT job on your web site. I sent it to all my sons.

What a beautiful family tree you have shared with us all. I found you through the LDS http://www.Familysearch.org Unfortunately, I cannot find my John R.W. Mankin in this tree. He was born in MD 1825 as were his parents. He came to DC about 1860 and was a Commissions Merchant. He married Lucinda Blackistone in St. Mary's Co., MD on 1 June 1854. John died Oct. 22, 1882 in DC where he lived at 522 7th St. SW. He was 57. They took him via the steamer "Arrowroot" to St. Mary's Co. and buried him next to his wife at All Saints Episc.Church in what is called "Avenue" Md. today. Their tombstone is there. This information is from his DC death certificate #34938 and "Marriages & Deaths, St. Mary's Co. 1634-1900" by Margaret Fresco. If you have him in your data base, I would love to know who his parents were. Thanks for any help,

Richard Tubman Mankin information

From: bdekeyser@juno.com
To: TheBell@Pacbell.net
Some months ago I sent you information on the descendants of Richard Tubman Mankin with citations as to the records used in the research. At that time I had some questions about proofs of connections. Since then I have added to the material researched and believe I can prove the family line. I am disappointed to see that the web site has not been updated at all during the year 2000, and that the information I supplied has not be posted. Obviously someone was glad of the information I sent as I got a message of appreciation about the James Mankin who married the Dent sisters.
Do you plan to keep the Mankin site up and running and current?

Thanks for the update to the web page. I haven't looked at it yet, but will check it out soon. Meanwhile, I had to respond to your question about Cedar Point. If you are lookiing for Cedar Point Neck, I may be able to help. "Lick" does not sound like a Charles Co. term, but there are two Cedar Points in Chas. Co - Upper and Lower - both adjacent to the Potomac River. If you are concerned with the one near Durham Church, then you want to look for the Nanjemoy Creek. Blossom Point is at the extreme end of Cedar Point Neck. Let me know f you need any other directions. Or I could send you a MD road map if you give me your address.

Hello - and thanks for your reply.
You have been checking up on me! But, true, I'm in Maryland and I volunteer and do research at MSA. Recently I have been doing research on the Mankin family for a client in FL who wants to prove that Sophia Mankin was a daughter of Richard Tubman Mankin, Jr. The circumstantial evidence is there - but not the document that gives the clear "proof". I'd feel that I should get her OK before sending you the material I've collected on the RTM line. However, I will tell you that RTM, Sr. had a wife Priscilla, and, in addition to RTM, Jr. and Margaret who married Baruch Robey, had other children - Tubman, Ann Wood who married Matthew Boswell and Jane who married Daniel Carrington and had daus. Jane and Ann Carrington. All are named in the distribution of the estate of RTM, Sr. (Chas. Co. Inventories 1802-1808 pg. 407) or in subsequent documents which prove the relationships.

I'll check with my client to be sure she has no objections to sharing the rest of the data. She is looking for proof that RTM, Jr had James, Richard (b. 1804 - d. 1838) and Sophia. All three apppear in guardianship records, but without mention of the father or mother! Isn't this fun!!!
Kepp in touch.

Yes, I have more info on RTM, Jr. - and yes, I do take on new clients, but right now I have several who take priority. I'll get back to you when I have an answer from the Mankin client - and if I can solve her problem, then I'll be able to spend time on other research.

Mankin data

Following is data for the Mankin website.


Richard Tubman Mankin, Sr. was deceased by Nov. 1804 when his widow posted bond in Charles County, MD for the administration of his estate.

*1 Distribution was made 12 May 1807 to the widow Priscilla and to the following children:

*2 Richard Tubman Mankin, Jr., who was also an administrator of the estate. Tubman Mankin Margaret, wife of Baruch Robey Ann Wood, wife of Matthew Boswell and to Jane and Ann Carrington, daughters of a deceased daughter, Jane, whose husband was Daniel Carrington. Richard Tubman Mankin, Jr. had a wife Mary indentified by her tombstone at St. Paul's Piney Church which indicates she died 21 March 1809, age 24. When Richard Tubman Mankin, Jr. died in 1815 Benedicta Mankin declined to administer the estate and requested that letters be granted to Samuel Chapman. *3 Benedicta Mankin is not further identified so it is not clear whether she was a second wife or an adult daughter. Chapman posted bond on 1 Nov. 1815. *4 An inventory of the estate was taken 9 Jan. 1816 *5 but an account was not rendered until 22 Mar 1820. *6 At that time there was no balance to distribute to the heirs. Charles County Orphans Court Proceedings show that Guardian Bonds were posted by Malachi Robey as guardian to Sophia Mankin and James Mankin whild Daniel Carrington was appointed guardian to Richard Mankin. *7 These children are believed to be the offspring of Richard Tubman Mankin, Jr. and his wife Mary. Further documentation is sought.

James Mankin - age 20 in Orphans Court Guardian Docket - April Court 1821. This is probably the James Mankin who married daughters of Alexander Dent *8, and who appears in the 1850 cnesus of Washington DC. Richard Mankin - age 18 on 25 March 1822. The Charles County Guardian Docket shows a receipt was filed on 19 May 1825 which released his guardian of his responsibilities. Richard Mankin's obituary in the Alexandria (VA) Gazette gives the date of death as 9 September 1838, "leaving a disconsolate wife and two small children" *9 A tombstone was recorded in Charles County, MD for Richard Mankin with birth date 25 Mar.1804, death date 9 Sept 1838. The estate was administered by Mary Ann Mankin.

Sophia Mankin - age 16 on 16 Nov. 1823. She was a ward of Malachi Robey who was noted in the Court records as "deceased". Bond and security was posted on 20 Feb. 1822 by Alexander Matthews and Samuel M. Herbert but no further accounts have been found. Sophia Mankin married William Marshall in Washington, DC 21 August 1827. She died 1 July 1880. Documentary proof of her relationship to these siblings and parents is sought.

Michael: I live in Prince George's Co., MD., about 25 miles from Port Tobacco, and there are some Robey/Mankin connections in the history of Charles County. I notice on your website that you only mention in passing one marriage of Baruch Robey to Margaret Mankin. If you are interested in further info on this branch of the family, you can contact me at my email address: billrobey@aol.com You can also contact Don Roby, who is a descendant of that marriage, and his email address is: donrobroby@aol.com You can also access our family association website at: http://www.geocities.com/robyfamily/

You have a great web site, but the constantly moving name and AIA mention is sort of annoying when you are trying to read something. Other than that, you have done a fine job with the site.

Richard Tubman Mankin's family Date: Wed, 12 Jan 2000 23:06:09 -0500 From: Bob & Kay <bobnkaymac@sssnet.com> To: michael@mankin.org, thebell@pacbell.net CC: michael@mankin.org, thebell@pacbell.net

Hello Michael!

First of all --you may get two copies of this letter! I'm sending a copy of this to Millie Bortin's address(which appeared on my email from you) and a copy to your address at the Mankin website, so you may get a duplicate.

I checked out your Mankin website........what an impressive piece of work!!! I'll have to go back to it and read the family's history you have posted there. Looks very interesting. I do think I am related to you through Margaret Mankin. Any clue as to where the name Tubman fits in?

You asked if I knew of anymore info on Richard T. Mankin's family. No, sorry I only have what a Roby relative in Michigan sent to me on my ancestor, Richard T. Mankin ROBEY, grandson of Richard T. Mankin. My 4th great grandfather, Richard T. Mankin Robey, aka Mankin Robey, b. Dec. 31, 1789 was son of Baruch/Barrick B. Robey and Margaret Mankin, b. January 1744/45. Baruch Benoni Robey married Margaret Mankin. Did you say that she was daughter of Richard Tubman Mankin??? Did she also have a brother of the same name? We never got much further back than Margaret and Baruch's family. Their children were: Richard T.M. Robey,b. 1789; John A.B. Robey, b. Abt. 1800; Baruch, b. unknown date; Elias, b. unknown date; Meicajah Roby, b. unknown; Jane, b. unknown; Elnor, b. unknown.

I believe Baruch Robey, my 4th gr. uncle, is buried in the Robey Cemetery north of Leesville, Ohio, near the present Atwood Lake area. Most of my relatives seem to be concentrated in this area of Carroll and Tuscarawas County, Ohio. I have not visited this Robey cemetery--- but have seen a listing for it. A lot of the Robey/Roby families are buried in Roxford Church cemetery, also.

My gggg.grandfather, R.T. Mankin Robey, a veteran of the War of 1812, is buried with his wife Assenath(Seny) Roby in Leesville Cemetery. My Roby cousin and I are trying to find out how to get a plaque put in for Mankin's grave as his headstone is broken and worn off and is barely legible at all. Mankin and Seny were 3rd cousins who married, I believe. The common ancestor they had was John Robey who married (1) unknown ? in 1673 and then married (2) Sarah Hines Luckett, in 1684. Mankin descended from John Robey's 1st marriage and Seny from his 2nd marriage. I have photos of the gravemarkers if you're interested. May have some Mankins, also. I will have to check.

Baruch B. Robey's parents were Sarah Dement and Alexander Robey, Sr. Sarah may have been married previously and took the name Dement, not sure. As far as I can tell, after corresponding with some Dement "cousins" ---apparently the name Benoni followed through their ancestry.....I still need to verify some of this.

If you have any copies of death certificates, marriages, or photos, would love to have copies if you wouldn't mind sending them to me. I will be glad to reimburse you for the copies and postage. You could also email them to me if you'd rather.

Thank you for replying and I will look forward to hearing from you again. Nice work on the website!!

Hi Michael, nice to meet you also. My younger brother is named Michael Joseph. Woud you like some data from down the line this way IE: Jasper down to me? I only know his parents Samuel and Docia(Dorcia) and their kids, but there seems to be a lack of info on Jasper except where he died, Globe AZ, I have some info, but not if he had other kids other than my G grandfather HARDY. I would be happy to help, but don't want our current generation on-line just yet. I live in Las Vegas with my Mom and Step dad ( Mom is an only child on the Mankins side) I'm a boomarang kid! My son is grown now, so I really am enjoying looking for realatives and my family history, having just gotten a computer has really helped my searching.

I am really looking for a connection with the Cherokee side, I have a record from the LDS church that says Peter Mankins born in the cherokee nation 1814 but doesn't explain anything further than just that. I don't know anything about a Legendary Peter, I do know there are a lot of Peter's in my line from him, but I have no history on him, Other than just Birthdates and family members, I would love to know why he was incredible. If you have the info and the time please let me know.

The document you sent appears blank, but thanks :) for sending it, A new picture would be great, hope you get the time to go this summer. I found a land document for Samuel I'll attach for you signed by President Martin Van Buren. Your Web site is so fantastic, you are a great man to do this for the family, Thanks! Please keep in touch, If I can help let me know. I passed your web site on to Maude Mankins, she also will help if she can. Thanks again Cindy Mankins O'Connor

Love your web page!! (I'm starting to study web foundations then web design) My family is through Tubmann, down to Stephen B's daughter Elizabeth Marilda b.18 Oct 1848 in Tenn(?). She married John Milton Lancaster, my great grand father.

I believe there is a typo (1 JOHANNES (JOHN) MANKIN of KIRBY SIGSTON, Yorkshire. He was born about 1651 A.D. He married circa 1586 and is mentioned in 1589. He had probably the following issue:) He couldn't have been born 1651 and married 1586. Maybe a transposition and should be 1561?

1-1 Johannis (John) b. 1587

1-2 Jacobus (Jacob) b. 1591

How do we prove George to be Tubman's father, is there any documentation? Where did you find your information? Don't want much do I? Well, may the Lord bless all genealogists for I know the ancestors want us all linked together. I hope to hear back.



Sincerely, a cousin

Hi MANKINS Cousins!

I am SO happy to see a MANKINS list and have the opportunity to subscribe. I am primarily a FINE researcher and am listowner for the FINE list on RootsWeb, as well as a LARRABEE list (my husband's line). I am descended from Peter MANKINS, Sr. through his daughter, Rachel MANKINS (1816-1897) who married Johnathan Alfred FINE (1814-1875) in 1836 in Washington County, Arkansas. I'll be back with another post that I found on Eda Mankins...I THINK it's her....

First, I have to go tell the FINE list about this MANKINS list!!! Hooray!!!

Was very happy to run into your page. After looking at it have found more information on my family out of West Virginia. Tubman Mankin is the line that I am descended from and was very lucky to find it on your page... If you don't mind when I get my page updated will add your site to my link page for you have allot of information on your site about the family. I show in my notes that a William Mankin moved to California and from what info that I can get his wife's name was Helen but not for sure. His fathers name was Martin C Mankin and he married Eliza Massey. Hope to have contact with you on this family...

Hey Michael, Yes I did get your reply. Thanks for responding so quickly. I've just started in this endeavor and I've got a bunch of information to look through, so it might be awhile before I can get back to you with any Mankin facts. You've done a great job so far. My father died Jan 23, 2000 and he was buried at the Lewinsville Presbyterian church in Lewinsville (McClean), Virginia. Now that I know more about my relatives I want visit the church again. I'm only 20 min. away, but with 3 kids it's hard to plan. Write back if you run across anything of interest, as I will do the same. Dave G.

This is what I know and some information I have. John Hue Mankin - My Great, Great Grandfather Robert Franklin Mankin - My Great Grandfather John Robert Mankin - My Grandfather David James Mankin - My Father Matthew David Mankin

We think that John Hue was one of seven sons of James Mankin from Virginia. I just found this information and it matches stories told to my father by John Robert my grandfather. This I think will link us to the Virginia Mankin families.

Dear Michael and family, I was enthralled by your website. My name is Deborah Hyers, my mother is Edna Mankins b.1912 and her father was William Clark Mankins d. 1939. He died in California but my mother was born in Texas. We come through Peter of Arkansas and Tubman Mankins lines. I've just become interested in my family history and had found out some wonderful things. I'm so excited that my main topic of conversation is geneology. Then I found your sight. The music, graphics, the sense of being part of something like you've presented brought tears to my eyes. I can only hope one day to do something even half as wonderful. Thank you for introducing me to my family. it was an awesome experience. I don't see how it could possibly be improved you've done such an incredible job. Your father was a lucky man to be admired so. thank You is not enough.

Deborah Hyers If ever I can help, I'm at twosisters2001@yahoo.com

Hi, My name is Deborah Lewis-Evans. I am the ggggggg granddaughter of Tubman Mankin. Sarah Mankin, Peter Jr.'s daughter married George Washington Ballard and then down the road came me. :o)- As I was visiting the Mankin site I couldn't help but notice the Sacramento California location for you. I am from the Placerville area. I am starting to learn about my ancestors. I find this so cool. I was looking for information for my grandson about John Bracken Mankin for a school project on the Gold Country. He just thought it was so great that one of our ancestors was a gold miner. Well I just thought I'd take a minute to say thanks for the site. I enjoyed it very much. If you feel like it or have the time maybe we can swap some history. I do have a picture of Peter Sr & Jr.'s graveside. My great Aunt Ida Belle Ballard took the picture when she was doing research. I would be happy to send it to you. I look forward to hearing from you. Debbie aka Dee

Dear Millie, No I didn't know about Carson City. How interesting. I have a great uncle George Lewis who was a partial owner of a casino in Carson City many years ago. I used to be a singer and dancer in Nevada. Must have been in the family genes drawing me home. LOL I would be happy to share my up to date things. There have been a few deaths of the elders in my branch. I also have a picture of George Washington Ballard if you would like it if you don't already have it. Just let me know. My great Aunt Ida Belle, (I call her Aunt Ike) and Aunt Nova her sister, worked on the family history for years. Traveled all over, checked census, county records, just tons of stuff and they gave it all to me to download in my PC. Then I met cousin Ray Maris online whom helped me and Becky Ridenour, her Momma was a Ballard shared a lot too. But the family I seem to most identify with are the Mankins. I'm a different breed. The stories I've read and share with the family, they laugh and say, "Yep, we see where you get it from." Especially John Brackin Mankin, being rich and going through it all. Prayerfully I'll hear that he got it all back someday. :o)- Well I hope to meet you someday. Like I said before I live in the Placerville area, actually a little town called Garden Valley, 5 miles from Coloma where James Marshall first discovered gold here so I'm really not that far from you. My husband Roy has lived here since about 1984 and he and I married 3 years ago so here I am. I'm actually a bay area girl. I was born and raised in Hayward but being an entertainer I traveled a lot. I had a wandering spirit about me in my youth. Now my spirit is with God. :o)- He's slowed me down a lot. Now I stay at home and take care of my 3 dogs and 12 dove. My husband has 5 acres up here and there is a lot of wildlife to see. Well I'll chat to the cows come home so I better close. Next time your write tell me a little bit about yourself. Take care and I look forward to hearing from you. Debbie By the way, most people call me Dee, but I like family to call me by my given name of Debbie or Deb. I know I''m weird, Dee Dee was my stage name.

I came across your Mankin page on the Internet and believe there is a connection to the Blackmer family I am researching.

M. Richmond "Rit" Blackmer was born about 1837 in Hillsdale Co., MI and served in the Civil War in Co. F., 4th Regt, Michigan Cavalry. He married Lucy Malcom in 1862 and after the War they moved to Cedar Springs, Kent Co., MI, north of Grand Rapids. They had 2 children, Willard and Alena/Lena.

In Richmond's pension file is a request for an increased payment based on his disability. It is dated 5 March 1890 and is witnessed by J.S. Mankin and Herman Olson. I am sure J.S. Mankin is the John Sanford Mankin you have listed on your home page. Just a month later, on 6 April 1890, Richmond died at the Michigan Soldiers' Home in Grand Rapids, the same place that J.S. Mankin died in 1906.

In 1900, Richmond's father-in-law, Samuel Malcom, deeded some land in Jackson Co., Michigan to his grandchildren, Willard Blackmer and Lena Mankin. I wonder if she married someone related to J.S. Mankin?

In your research, have you run across any connection between the Mankins of Grand Rapids and the Blackmer family?

Thanks in advance, Donna Meszaros DMeszaros@aol.com


Mankin In Tennessee Date: Mon, 17 Jul 2000 14:43:20 -0400 (EDT) From: DMMankin@aol.com To: michael@mankin.org

Michael, it was great finding your website and very interesting to learn about the Mankin family. My name is Dana Mankin, and I live in Tennessee. Oddly enough, I have a brother I have a brother who shares your name. Michael Mankin. I have no known relatives other than my immediate family and was wondering if you had traced any Mankins to Tennessee. I know there are a great many here, though I'm not sure if any are relatives of mine. I am 25 years old and have no idea of tracing my ancestory. My grandfathers name was Henry Hall Mankin, and he had no brothers or sisters, my great grandfathers name was also Henry Hall Mankin and as far as I know, he had no siblings either. From there I'm thinking that his fathers name was John Mankin, and I know that there was a Sarah. Thats all I know, and thats all anyone in my family will tell me. If you have any information, could you please help me. I know I have family out there somewhere. Thank you. Dana

Howdy! My name is Don Mankin. I'm a Sr. System's Programmer in California about to retire and will most likely have some free time on my hands. I'm considering digging into my family history, but really don't know where to start. I understand that on my mother's side, I have roots to Daniel Boone but my dad's side is a bit of a mystery. I'm currently living in the San Francisco (far) east bay area but my folks roots are from Michigan. Any way, I was checking out your web site and thought I'd drop you a line. If you have any suggestions on where to start, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

The Mankin Family Date: Tue, 04 Jan 2000 22:35:33 -0500 From: Elaine Haug <EHaug@email.msn.com> To: TheBell@Pacbell.net

Hi Michael,

I just discovered you website on the Mankin Family. I was really impressed. I have been researching them for 2 years. I may have talked to you on internet once before. I think you told me of a ship Captain Mankin who brought white slaves to Port Tobacco. It has been a while.

The Mankin Family is my daughter in laws family. I have been looking all over to find relatives. I haven't read all your pages, but in 1969 there was a Mankin Newsletter originating from TX. I have some names of subscribers, but I wasn't sure if they are still alive. I live in Dale City Virginia. Just across the Potomac River from the Port Tobacco area. I see that George Lewis Mankin III was born in Baltimore, MD. Is he still alive. I tried to check the phone book in the area, but he isn't listed. I thought it would be nice to meet him. You are over in California. That is where my son and daughter-in-law lives. They have a yearly reunion in the summer, perhaps you are closely related. I will have to look through my data and see if I find you.

For now I think I will try to absorb some of your information.

I'm glad to get in touch with you once again.

Lots of Williams Date: Thu, 06 Jan 2000 01:16:17 -0500 From: Elaine Haug <EHaug@email.msn.com> To: Millie Bortin <thebell@pacbell.net>

Dear Michael,

I'm glad to hear you were not sure of the William Mankins. It didn't quiet match up with my outline. There is a William Mankin burried in Alexandria with his wife Dorcus. Once I get through reviewing the outline I will give you a list of information that doesn't agree with mine. I get the impression you are the Mankins from Ohio, California. My daughter-in-law is from Tubman's line that went to Arkansas, Kentucky and California. That line has a lively relative who lived to be 111.

I also live in the county that James Mankin drifted to. I have trying to really firm up "Deep Hole". Most of the records are very fuzzy. I know where Smithfield is located, but it doesn't match up with what I call Deep Hole. I can not find any birth or death records to show the relative are burried at Deep Hole. The Deep Hole I know is now a National Wildlife Refuge. I have been surveying the plants on the property for 7 years. I am a botanist. I only recently discovered George Lewis Mankins paper which give more details of the Deep Hole property. I know exactly where the barn was. I have commented to Fish and Wildlife that they need to have a archeology study there to find the grave markers that were used as the foundation to the barn. I can't believe they acturally built the barn on top of the graves. I have an idea where the cemetery might be if not under the barn. Do you have any other information on Deep Hole that is not on your website? I have searched the court house and some other records, but nothing firm. I just read somewhere that one of the rich owners left in his will that the sons were to sell that property to the tenant farmers and this may be where Mark Mankin got this property. I am still searching for the property that Benjamin Mankin owned in Dumfries. I have not exhausted sources. I am also trying to do my own family at the same time. So when I run into a dead end I back off for a while and go to the other family.

I have found and visited the cemeteries of the Falls Church Mankins. This is where Melvin Steadman is burried. There is about 50 relatives burried in Herndon. I have been photographing as many grave stones as I can. They keep multiplying. How did you decide to cut off the information on the alive people. I know there are some that have died that you don't have death dates. I think I will be able to fill in some of your blanks.

I was really impressed with your website. It must have taken you a long time to make it. I am rather new at websites. I did make one with roots web's help. No one has contacted me on it. There is so much information out on the web.

Well it is getting late and I have to get up early for work tomorrow.

Re: Reply to: Mankin Family History Date: Tue, 10 Oct 2000 23:17:15 -0400 (EDT) From: EllisJandK@aol.com To: thebell@pacbell.net

This is great! My great great grandfather was James A.'s brother Martin Cloud Mankin. The research my mom has done only goes back to their father, James. She started doing the family research some twenty years ago and has been able to fill in some of information about the women who married into the family from footnotes in some books. But that's about it. My grandfather came from West Virginia as a young man. His parents were William Penn Manking who married Helen Lee Ferguson. One of my grandfather's cousins was Fred Mankin of Heppner, Oregon, who we met some thirty-five years ago. Fred's father was John Joplin (aka JJ or GG?). I believe his birthdate was Oct. 15, 1888. I will share this information with my mom; she's got all the information. I just have a few notes. I will find out if she has information about where/when the settled in the United States. I don't believe she has a lot of that sort of info but we'll keep digging and sharing. I've got a lot more information on my grandmother's family (Stafford's of WV) and my father's father's family. His mother's and my mother's father's family lines have been harder to research.

I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Mankin Family History Date: Mon, 09 Oct 2000 17:08:23 -0400 (EDT) From: EllisJandK@aol.com To: michael@mankin.org

Thank you for your information on the Mankin family history. My mother has done research on her Mankin family heritage but has limited success. When I saw your website I thought we'd "struck gold." Her great great grandfather was James Mankin, but evidently not the same after all as he married (Sarah?) Cloud and had children Betty, Sarah, James A., Simeon, Martin Cloud, Kirby, John, Benjamin, and Jesse. Mom's greatgrandfather was Martin Cloud Mankin who married Eliza Massey and to them were born John Joplin, Andrew Washington, William Penn, Thomas Martin, Axia, and Catherine. William Penn Mankin married Helen Lee Ferguson, children were Martin Bee, Celia Pink, Elsie May, Bessie Grace, Flora Lee, Willie Eliza, Ellen Dewie, John Hayes, and George Andrew. If you've run across this family of Mankin's in your research, we would appreciate any information you would share.

Thank you for a wonderful website!


question regarding your genealogy research Date: Sat, 16 Dec 2000 19:56:57 -0500 (EST) From: EricaMae@aol.com To: michael@mankin.org

Hi! You have an amazing site, reflecting and even more amazing wealth of information. You have done some serious research, very impressive! I stumbled across your site while I was trying to track down Rev. Thomas Littleton. He is mentioned on your site as follows:

3-8-1-6 NANCY MANKIN, daughter of Mark Matthew Mankin and Elizabeth Ann Wood Mankin, was born at "Deep Hole" near Dumfries, Prince William County, VA. She married in Loudoun County on March 28, 1817 by Rev. Thomas Littleton to JAMES WEEDON.

my 4x great-grandparents were also married by this Rev. Littleton, and I am trying to find out what church(es) he presided over. My ancestors were married several years later (1824), in Frederick Co., VA, so it would clearly be a different church than the one your ancestors were married in, but as a total shot in the dark, I thought I would ask you if you had any additional information on Rev. Littleton. My thanks for your time, and again let me say just how impressive your site is! Best Regards and Happy Hunting; Erica Evans

I have tried to look at this www.mankin.org site and there is either a problem on that end or my end. Most of the text and graphics run together and neither is clear. I'm not even sure that you are who I should be talking with about the problem. I clicked on an envelope at the bottom of the screen in hopes that I am correct. Help!!

Re: Reply to: Mankin.org Date: Sun, 16 Apr 2000 07:24:36 -0700 From: Errol Fagg <Errol_Fagg@worldnet.att.net> To: Millie Bortin <thebell@pacbell.net>

Millie, Thanks for responding so promptly. I run Windows 98 on a Dell 266mhz box. I use Netscape 4.7 as my browser. The mankin.org site comes up fine but when I scroll down through the page it starts running together. I also tried your mirror site and got the same results. It may be something that I am doing wrong but I don't have the same problem with any other site and unless I am mistaken, I viewed your site a month or so ago and had no problem.

John Fagg was born a bastard child of Elizabeth Fagg and John Capshaw. John Capshaw acknowledged John Fagg as his child in court in 1719. At court on 6/11/1723, John Fagg was bound to Stephen Mankin (Josiah Mankin's brother) until John Fagg should come of age. John Fagg married Elizabeth Mankin, daughter of Josiah Mankin and Margaret Chapman Mankin. Elizabeth Mankin had Joseph and William as brothers that were placed in the care of Josiah's brother Stephen when Josiah died about 3/6/1730. John Capshaw had married Hope Mankin, Josiah Mankin's sister.

Elizabeth Fagg had another child by John Brooks,Jr. by about 1712, and I can't help but think that Elizabeth was an endentured servant to the Brooks family as well as members of the Mankin family arriving in America the same way but have no proof.

Any light you can shed on this puzzle will be helpful.

Thanks again, Errol Fagg Errol_Fagg@worldnet.att.net

Michael, I got your site up today and everything worked wonderfully. I also found the John Fagg/Elizabeth Mankin connection as them being married about 1736. Its good to verify history by another source. It appears that the Mankin, Capshaw, and Fagg, connection is there in the early years. It is difficult to figure out the exact relationships since births out of wedlock were not recognized but did exist. I often think it would be nice to talk to some of these early settlers and understand better what they went through and how they survived. Obviously they did whatever they had to do and we may not agree with what they did but we didn't have to deal with their circumstances.

I will keep an eye out for any additional information that includes the Mankin/Capshaw/Fagg connection and pass it on to you. In the meantime, if you come across any information about Elizabeth Fagg or any other early connections, I would appreciate you passing it along to me.

What proof do you have that the original George Mankin is the father of the original Stephen Mankin? After over twenty years of researching this family we were never able to make this assumption. Have much information and would appreciate hearing from you.

Glad we had not missed the connection between George and the first Stephen. Many questions about that first generation. Our line Stephen Tubman James John Stephen Ephraim Oscar Paul Alfred my husband Mark Alex

This line came from Maryland to Kentucky Tennessee, Arkansas then Texas. We had a lot of correspondence and phone conversations with Steadman prior to his death. Of course he was not researching the southern Mankins. Denzil Daniel was working on the ones in the south..Jess Mankin was living on the land given to the revolutionary James but have lost touch with him.

When my husband was buried at Arlington National Cemetary we learned the only other Mankin there at that time was a sargeant. Is that your father?

I printed out your web page to keep it for a reference. Really enjoyed your research about the name. When I was in Edinborough to look up some records they told me everything they have is in the LDS library in Utah.

Will be looking forward to your update.

Sincerely, Evelyn Mankin

Mankin Family Date: Fri, 17 Dec 1999 20:03:30 -0500 (EST) From: Fuzzy62139@aol.com To: TheBell@pacbell.net

Hello Michael,

I was very glad to see your message the other day. I have not be able to spend a lot of time researching my Mankin family line. Oh by the way your web site is great. I hope you don't mind me passing it on to a few others that will be interested.

In my records I have always assumed that there was a Richard T. Mankin sr. and a Richard T. Mankin, Jr. Tubman was born in 1696 and Richard T. Mankin (the one that's listed on your site) was born 1742. This means that Tubman would have been 46 when he had this Richard T. Mankin. This is not unheard of but it does leave plenty of room for another Richard t Mankin.

My Barruch Robey was born about 1765 and it seems that his wife Margaret Mankin would have been born around 1760, this would make her around 28 when she gave birth to Richard T. Mankin Robey(my 3rd great grandfather).

I have been trying to locate the burial place of Barruch and Margaret but as of this writing no luck yet. I have found a few hints that they may have come to Ohio followings at least three of their sons.

Well, I better quit rambling. Talk to you again Don Roby


Re: Reply to: Mankin Family Date: Tue, 21 Dec 1999 20:26:45 -0500 (EST) From: Fuzzy62139@aol.com To: thebell@pacbell.net

Hello Michael,

I too am glad to find another Mankin cousin. I went for years wondering if I would ever find any and this year I have been found by two. Early this year I was contacted by another descendant of Richard T. Mankin Robey.

I will but together the history of our line and send it to you. Which form would you like it in? I can print it out and mail it to you or send it as a gedcom file or rtf file attached to an email if you would like it that way.

My Richard T. Mankin Robey and his wife died and are both buried in Leesville, Ohio. One of Richard T's brothers, John A. B. Robey, moved his family to Indiana in the mid 1800s. They are buried up near Fort Wayne, Indiana. I will have to look at my records to see exactly where. There is a Barrick Robey, age 30-40,(I believe that this is another brother to my Richard T.) in the 1830 Tuscarawas County, Ohio census and there is a female listed age 60-70. I believe that this could be his mother which would be Margaret (Mankin) Robey. I'm not sure what happened to this family after 1830 they don't show up in the 1840 census. This is one of my projects, trying to find Barruch and Margaret.

I can check with one of my Roby cousins on the location of Mankins Adventure. He has done a lot of research in this area and I'm sure he will know where it is located.

Yes, I have Mankin relatives. Lyla Mankin was a great aunt. Jack Mankin was

a cousin of my Dad's. He was a TWA pilot. I am sure there are others. Anything sound familiar. These people were in Kansas City and I believe that

Jack lived in Edgerton Kansas at least for a while.

I have in my files a Charles Edward MANKIN from Alexandria, Virginia. When the Mankin(s) came to America from Scotland, there was no "s" on the end of their name. As time went on, one of the family added the "s" and his line spelled it with the "s" from that point on. However, some did not adopt the new spelling and retained the original "Mankin"

Charles Edward Mankin, born July 24, 1839 in Alexandria, Virginia, married on December 20, 1882 to Ann Valinda Lynch in Dulin Chapel Methodist Church, South, Falls Church, Virginia. Charles Edwarn Mankin died on September 13, 1903 in Falls Church, Fairfax County, Virginia. Ann Valinda Lynch was born on Decemb4er 14, 1860 in "Hill House", Falls Church, Virginia, died February 7, 1925 in Falls Church, VA.

The Father of Charles Edward Mankin was Mark matthew Mankin II and his mother was Elizabeth Ann May.

Children of Charles Edward Mankin and Ann Valinda Lynch:

1. Ellen Elizabeth Mankin, born April 7, 1883 in Falls Church, Fairfax County, VA; died October 14, 1903 in Bethesda, Montgomery County, Maryland. She married Herbert Nelson Hirst.

2. Clinton Edward Mankin, born January 14, 1884 in Falls Church, Fairfax County, VA; died May 9, 1918 in Falls Church. No information on his marriage.

3. Mary Marguerite Mankin, born March 10, 1888 in Falls Church, VA; died March 12, 1891 in Falls Church, VA. No marriage info.

4. Linda Mae Mankin, born May 30, 1889 in Falls Church, VA. No death info. She married Clarence Marshall Hirst.

5. Ruth Cackley Mankin, born April 14, 1896. She married Edgar Allen Hilderbrand.

6. Charles Guy Mankin, born June 28, 1901 in Falls Church, VA. He married Blanche Woodrow Miller.

---End---

I hope this helps you out. I have more information on ancestry, descendants, etc, and can look up (given a little time) when the name change was made and by whom. Good luck, and God bless you.

Sue, my source is simply another GEDCOM file that I downloaded ages ago. Because we've been working so diligently on the STRAIN side of the family, I have not had time to verify any of the things I have on the Mankin file. We have verified a lot of the Mankins but not Mankin.

Hi Michael. I am working on genealogy today (FINALLY) and see that in the 5th generation you now have my George Mankin as being No. 3-5-3-1-3 (3rd child) -- rather than the 3-5-3-1-2 (2nd child) previously listed. I guess new research has turned up the William Mankin 3-5-3-1-1?

I will proceed from there (if this is correct, and I assume it is) and send you the subsequent generations of my George 3-5-3-1-3. I am going to send these via snail mail so you will have copy in print, and I will make additions and corrections that I have since discovered in the past few months.

Thank you for this great MANKIN service! Linda.

I mailed you today all my updates. One correction I failed to notice is: in 8th generation: Harlan Sanford Mankin. It is HE who died in Fremont on 16 Jan. 1969 and his wife's name is spelled "Menette". Perhaps you can add that to the other stuff I am sending.

He was a world class contortionist who travelled the world with the vaudeville circuits. Would you be interested in a picture or pictures of him (in postures) for the website.? When I learn how to scan, etc., I could send them to you.

Yes, It is hard to know what is conjecture but I am very certain that the 7th generation Joseph Mankin married to Zoe Knight is OURS - 3-5-3-1-3-1 and not the other Joseph Mankin. I have Ohio Census listing him in our family, and also family letters and oral history. Joseph and Zoe both died very young and left 3 small children who were adopted out. One of them was in Oregon and I have letters from his daughter telling all about his siblings, uncles, etc., and they are all OURS.

When I went to LDS site last year, he was the only Mankin I could find. Somehow the Joseph Mankin/Susan Metz family has claimed him. I always question where the info comes from. You are SO right -- it is very hard to be sure. One has to be a detective. I must go back to Phyllis Cline's records - perhaps she had put him in the Mankin/Metz column? I could never have done this with Phyllis' help. She has been wonderful in all her research.

I am afraid that much of the LDS site info could also be conjecture. I don't know that they could possibly require proof of all of that ???

It would be fun if we could prove that we are actually descendents of the Rev. War William Mankin - but that is the point at which I cannot PROVE. >From George Mankin and Charity Wright onward I can prove.

Again, thanks for all your patience and information and hard work on this web site. OH, I almost forgot. I got from the Nationa Archives the Civil War records of a George Mankin who was killed. I had thought he was MINE, but discovered he wasn't, even though the Ohio connection and name was the same. I would be happy to pass these along to the right family. Think I said that on a genealogical website, but no one responded.

In the event you have him somewhere: His name is George M. Mankin, married to Mary Ann Rukinbrod. They had 4 children: Alcena Mankin, Jonathan Mankin, Martha Mankin and George Albert Mankin -- all born in Columbiana County, Ohio (That is where many of our Mankin's come from, too, so there must have been dozens of them!). They were all born from 1854 to 1862 so she was left a young widow with these kids to bring up. Some of the Mankin genealogists must be able to claim them somewhere. A letter from an Edgar M. Bell who was an attorney in Cleveland in 1916, says that Mary A. Mankin is his grandmother.

Somewhere along the line all of these pieces of the jigsaw puzzle would fit into SOMEONES family study. This is why your website is so valuable. People can get information and fill in the gaps -- sometimes where it is least expected.

Thanks for everything! Linda.

Hello, Michael, you've done a wonderful job on your Mankin Site!! My mother's paternal grandmother was Fannie Mankins. She was born June 15, 1868 in Georgetown, Texas. According to our family Bible her father was Evan Mankins, born Jan 12, 1839 in Madison Co., Arkansas. According to the 1850 Census of Williamson Co., Texas; Evan's parents were Samuel C. Mankins (born July 19, 1815 in Floyd Co., KY and Dotia Williams. >From here I found on the net that Samuel C. Mankins was the son of Peter Mankins born Sept. 19, 1770, Cedar Point, MD (who is the son of John and Masa). I am descended from both of Peter Mankins' wives. It seems that the Mankins traveled from Kentucky to Arkansas with the Williams family. From Arkansas they moved to Texas. I did not know there is a Mankin, Texas. Anyway, it is nice to speak to a distant relative, Mary D.

Thanks for the info on the webpage. I'm afraid I don't have much on the AR Mankins, but I'm attaching some info I copied from the Washington Co. AR History Book(giving credit to that book on page 1, of course!) You may already have it, but perhaps not. It was done 10 yrs. ago. I hope it's useful to you in some way.

Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Hi, thanks for the information. It's quite plausible to me, too. I don't have much problem with family stories that have alot of basis for the info, ie, the location of the particular tribe to the location of the "white" families, occupations of the settlers, etc. And the Quaker thing makes sense, too. On down my line from Mankins, Geo. W. Lewis (Rachel Brackin Lewis Mankin's son) had a dau., Sina, who married Thomas Cook, s/o Hannah Macy and John Cook-----both Quakers from way back. By the way, G.W. Lewis married his stepfather's niece, Nancy Mankins, dau. of Walter.....what a tangled web. Oh, well, the branch the Macy's came from is so interesting is pretty much grows in a circle! ha

Thanks for sharing......and I won't be disputing the ancestors' theory of their origin!

Hi Michael,

Good to hear from you again. Yes, the article you've sent sure looks like J.B. was the one who owned and eventually sold the land. I've not seen that story before, but I did see something else about him and information concerning Carson City and the surrounding area. I can't remember now what it was, but I'll try to find it. Oh, maybe it was a website you forwarded to me, and a letter or something in the archives in Calif. was mentioned......does that sound familiar?

I think I would've liked to have known ole John B. Mankin, wouldn't you? He got around, and knew some folks back then!

Hi, I am trying to get an angle on this one and am stuck.

My grandmother was Christina Meiklejohn. Her father was Alexander McEwan Meiklejohn who married Margaret Mankin in 1891 at Stockton on Tees England. I don't know where they were fron or what happened to them but there children were brought up by an aunt in Tillicoultry, my home town. I have now found other Mankins in the town and it is not a Scottish name and they were the only ones in Scotland, none here in 1881. I think I might have an idea that Alex came from Bothwell, near Glasgow. He was an Iron Moulder and and this was a prevalent trade in the area. There was also a need for this trade in the Stockton area with new railways etc. It is a theory that he may well have gone there to gain better employment and married Margaret Mankin there. I do not know if she went there with him or he met her there. I believe that there is a connection between the Mankins in Tillicoultry and Stockton.

I know this isn't very far back as geneology goes but we have to begin somewhere. None of my fathers family knew anything about the Meiklejohns or Mankins. They both must have died when their children were very young. Maybe they dumped the kids and made off for a new life in the colonies. Anyway, I hope you will be able to help me a little. If I can be of assistance this end let me know

Re: Reply: Mankin stuff Date: Tue, 25 Jul 2000 22:25:08 -0400 From: J French <jandjfrench@earthlink.net> To: Millie Bortin / Michael Mankin <thebell@pacbell.net>

Michael, I have not documented the "Germany" thing and I should remove it. I had forgotten it was there and came from the same source as the thing about William being a "MD" - of course this was for Maryland and it was taken for his being a doctor. :-) This is the first time I have come across "Sarah Elizabeth" for Celia's given name. Could there have been two William Mankins in Tn? Since there is a problem with whom the daughter, Nancy, married - I have Joseph Newman (who is definitely my line) and some others (on Ancestry.com) have a Jacobs. My info came from Tn. relatives who took or told us where each was buried. You know there was a settlement called Mankinville just outside of Murfreesboro, Tn. I really doubt that William and Celia's daughter was married in Anderson (Co. ?). I can't right off the top of my head think of that county or its location. I will do some searching on that also. I found Celia in the 1850 census of Rutherford Co. with a male in-law living with her. I assumed this would have to be William's brother since the census didn't show a different name for him. I have access to the 1850 census sheets on line so I have been printing them out as I find the family members. When I find more info relating to this line, I will advise you. I will be in Nashville the end of Aug. and again the middle of Sept. and plan to spend some time in Nashville and Murfreesboro. William's will was listed as a Bedford Co. will, but the info was given in the Rutherford Co. book. This is probably because of the formation of Bedford Co. from a part of Rutherford. I have a lot of Mankin(s) people whom I have found in the cemetery books of Rutherford Co. that I can't put with anyone. Hopefully with the printed census sheets, I can put them somewhere. I have printed all the Mankins I found in Rutherford Co., but I need to check Bedford also. My Nancy Mankin Newman didn't die until 1896 so I will check the 1880 census for her when I am in Tn. and see where it says her parents were born. Nancy M. Newman didn't have a daughter named Sarah Elizabeth, but the other Nancy M. Jacobs did. NMN had a daughter named Drucilla and I think that may have been for her mother, Celia. This is all a big treasure hunt with skip-tracing thrown in. :-) If I can help you with any thing from Tn., let me know and I will try to find it. I have a distant relative who works at the Archives. I will also try to contact Andrew J. Farrell, 460 Weeping Elm Road, Mr. Juliet, Tn, (615-758-5937) as he is said to have a lot of info on this line. About the Prater line, I know there was a lot of Praters in the area of Rutherford Co., but these families moved like gypsies in bands from the old neighborhoods. The Keltons are another bunch that shows up in several places with the Mankin families nearby. Any way, I appreciate your responses. I will see what I can find and share with you. I have the Rutherford cemeteries books and other genealogy books from the society. If I look up or check anything for you, just ask. A probably cousin, Judy jandjfrench@earthlink.net


Re: Mankin stuff Date: Tue, 25 Jul 2000 10:44:50 -0400 From: J French <jandjfrench@earthlink.net> To: Millie Bortin / Michael Mankin <thebell@pacbell.net>

Michael, Thanks for all the wonderful info and your website is tremendous! I have a problem with Celia's name being Sarah Elizabeth. I am attaching my genealogy report for William and Celia. My mother and I have done extensive research in the Rutherford Co. area. Years ago my mother visited with the Lynch and Newman families. Much of my info was gleaned from these sources since there is little else to go on. William and Celia had a daughter named Drusilla and I have thought that "Celia" could be short for Drusilla. Also, the family line which shows William and Celia's daughter, Nancy, married a Jacobs is erroneous. I have documentation that Nancy married Joseph Newman and that she was the daughter of Wm. and Celia. Since the Nancy who married a Jacobs did so in Anderson (I suppose County), this is a strange occurrence if she was the daughter of parents living in Rutherford (later Bedford) County. Please look over my material and let me know of any mistakes you find. Thanks, Judy Cummins French



Descendants of William Mankin





Generation No. 1

1. WILLIAM1 MANKIN was born Abt. 1762 in GERMANY, and died January 08, 1827 in RUTHERFORD CO, TN (Source: CEM. BOOKS, RUTHERFORD CO HIST. SOC.). He married CELIA PRATER OR KELTON Abt. 1795 (Source: WM. MANKIN'S WILL, TN. TIDBITS, VOL 1, PG 235). She was born Abt. 1775 in VA, and died December 01, 1850 in RUTHERFORD CO, TN (Source: CEM. BOOKS, RUTHERFORD CO HIST. SOC.).

Notes for WILLIAM MANKIN:

William settled near Beech Grove, TN. info from records of Dorothy McCall MacGregor, from "Duck River Valley and Pioneers" by (1) Lucille Frizzell Jacobs Pages 87-88, (2) Bruce Lynch, 1310 Toddington Dr., Murfreesboro, TN, (3) Orbie Newman, Christiana, TN and (4) Epper Bell Newman, Webb, Christiana, TN.

In "Rutherford Co., TN Cemeteries, VOL II Eastern Third of County," this family is shown as being buried in Mankin Cemetery located 1/2 mile due south of Big Creek Church, enclosed by heavy stone fence - off Manchester Pike on Big Spring Road, turn by church into a field. Gives his age at death as 65.

"TN. Tidbits" VOL 1, Page 235, show admr. of William's will in Rutherford Co. as Joel Smith. Celia appointed guardian for William, Jesse and Charles, minor heirs which means that they were under 21 years of age. Will found in Bedford Co. records, but listed as Rutherford Co. will. There has been info saying that Wm. was a doctor, but this is believed to be in error. Someone mistook the "MD" for Maryland as "M.D." for doctor.

Notes for CELIA PRATER OR KELTON:

!Celia lived in Rutherford County, Tennessee in 1850 census with a relative, Hesekihad. Celia's brother, William, married Elizabeth Howland 6/8/1848. Information from same source as information on William Mankin, see notes. Judy French 5/26/1994

!Her grave is listed with her husband's in Mankin's Cem. See Wm. For notes. Jmf 3/25/1995

!I have a real strong feeling that her nickname was "Cilia" and that her given name was "Drucilla" since Nancy named one of here children that name. Jmf 4/26/1995

There is now information that Celia's surname was either "Prater" or "Kelton" and neither has been verified at this point. Andrew J. Farrell, 460 Weeping Elm Road, Mr. Juliet, Tn, (615-758-5937) needs to be contacted.!Celia lived in Rutherford County, Tennessee in 1850 census with a relative, Hesekihad.

From info in cem. books in Rutherford Co, he was buried in Millersburg Cem, Rutherford Co., TN as was Nancy.

"TN COUSINS" listed Joseph Newman as being in Bolivar in 3 different years and in 1828 listed him as Captain of steamboat "Rover". Bolivar is on the Hatchitte River which flows from Miss. into TN and would explain the birthplace of the two children born in MS.

"AUTOMATED ARCHIVES, CD #102, LINEAGES'S LIBRARY LIBRARY, FILE #44008," GA ARCHIVES, gives his place of birth as Va (probably Amherst or Buckingham Co.)

Found a town on the GLO map in "Rutherford Co. Cemeteries" that is or was near where the Newman's settled by the name of "Rover." This reinforces my opinion that Joseph was the steamboat Capt. mentioned above.

Hello,

I am writing you either because we have been in communication before or because your email address has come up in my latest searches looking for descendants of the Seth & Charity Thornburg Mills family, especially descendants of Enos and Edith Mankins Mills. I am trying to close a three year gap in determining that my Martha Jane Mills and the Martha Jane who was the daughter of Enos and Edith Mankins Mills are one and the same person. In so doing, and thanks to the very sharp eyes of Sue Nandor and Ruby Sharp, I have realized many,many researchers have confused the four existing Enos Mills (there are probably more Enos' but these are the ones that seem to get confused!). If this were not confusing enough (!) many have alsoconfused two different Edith Mankins! In the research data of some, all these people have become just one couple and their information is hopelessly combined. I have gone back to all the original sources I can find and really believe I have it all sorted out.

I believe that one primary place people have gotten confused about the Enos' is in reading an article written by Frank M. McConnell for the Flashback publication connected to the letters from Jacob in 1843 and Seth in 1852 in which McConnell confuses the Enos' himself. He says this son of Seth and and Charity was born in 1831... when Springfield MM records clearly shows his birth date as 29 Feb 1816 and he adds an "L" as a middle initial to Enos name. There was an Enos L. and an Enos P., sons of the first Enos' brothers, Aaron and Jacob who were born in the 1830-40 timeframe, but they are NOT the man who married Edith Mankins! I have never seen any substantiation for a middle initial "L" added to the name of Enos Mills who married Edith Mankins. If you have such documentation, I would love to know of it. The idea is to get it right... and as Kaye Larrabee said so well, "I practice guilt free genelaogy!" The fourth Enos is Enos Jr., son of Enos Sr. and Edith Mankins Mills who was born after Enos died (Enos died Oct. 1849 and Enos Jr. was born May 1850 in order to be 5 mos. old in the 1850 Census). I can find no further record of this Enos at all anywhere beyond the 1850 census and I wonder if he survived infancy under the circumstances....

McConnell also says Enos died 1868 on the Mills farm in Washington Co., AR. This is correct information for one of the Enos', but it identifies a different Enos than the one who married Edith Mankins. Dade County, MO Will Abstracts show that both Enos and his brother Henry died in intestate in MO in 1849 and 1848 respectively.

Regarding Edith Mankins, if you look at her age on both the 1840 and 1850 census records, 1) the ages are consistent as "w female 15/20 years old" in 1840 and 28 years in 1850 thus 2) she cannot be the Edith Mankins who was daughter to Peter Sr. and Rachel Bracken Lewis Mills as this woman was born in 1810 and would have been age 30 in 1840 and age 40 in 1850! On the other hand, her age is just about a perfect fit for her to be the first Edith's niece. I am convinced "the real Edith" who married Enos Mills was the GRANDdaughter of Peter Sr and Rachel and the daughter of their son John Bracken and Mary "Polly" Sloan Mills. Both were born in Floyd County, KY, a generation just got skipped along the way.

I have sorted this out to the best of my ability and charted it all here <http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~jmbhome/2martha.html#John> and here http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~jmbhome/edithmankins.html

At this point, I want to know where in the heck Edith and the children went after the 1850 Census. In my mind, the story is likely that poor Edith, a 28 year old illiterate widow with 6 children ages 5 mos. to 10 years had little other on her mind than pure survival. In those days, with the options available to women, I suspect she was either looking to extended family for support or looking for another husband. The two widowed sisters-in-law live near each other in Dade County, MO in 1850 but I can find no traces of either after this. By the Civil War, if the family had stayed in the area, William Riley and Henry would certainly have been "draft age" and Enos Jr. would have been old enough before the War ended. I cannot find traces of any of them on either side of the War. Can anyone help? In trying to narrow it down, I am concentrating on Oregon, California and Texas.....

I have heard from a descendant of Silvester Massey, who administered Enos' estate after his death that members of the Massey family went from Indiana either to Lane County and Marion County, Oregon or to Bell County, Texas. I note that Edith's father John Bracken Mankins married 1st in Floyd Co., KY where his 1st 4 children were born. Then he must have gone to IL at least briefly because son Peter P was born there. Then he went to Washington County, AR where the last 3 children were born. Mary "Polly" Sloan Mankins died between 1837-39 and John married wife #2 in Washington Co., AR in 1839. Then, he went to CA and married his 3rd wife in Tulare County in 1864, then apparently went back to Washington County, AR to marry his 4th wife in 1869 then died in Mariposa County, CA in 1876.... lots of back and forth! Maybe Edith was with her father??? I am in Ca so I will go look up those records pronto!

I'd appreciate it if you would all look over what I have posted and let me know if you see any errors. If any of you have been in touch with descendants of any of Enos and Edith's children, would you please direct me to those people?

Given the confusion in her family of origin, it makes it even easier for me to understand why I have had such a hard time tracking Martha Jane's ancestry ;]

Thanks so much just for reading this missive!

Hi Michael,

No, John B and his story is brand new to me! Thanks... After I sent out my looong note yesterday, my computer crashed so I have been doing some de-fragging, etc.... now that I am "officially" clean again, I am going to begin looking in CA for evidence of Edith and the children. Thanks for letting me know about the Carson City connection... these folks sure got around! Interesting to me to note is that IF my Martha is theirs, her son John lived and died in Winnemucca, NV after spending 10 years chasing one kind of ore or another from Calico, CA up into the Yukon and back... he was in CA, OR, WA and NV.. maybe there was other family in the area???

I still want you to run a MANKIN mailing list... ;] It is really not a big deal.... I just sent out one set of emails to announce it to the folks I knew were logical subscribers, the rest took care of itself. The list wouldn't be a big one, so it is easy to control.... have you thought more about it?

Gee, you could use the list of folks I cc-ed that message to as a beginning! Keep in touch! Hey, if you are ever gonna be down in the Bay Area with a bit of time on your hands, let me know... You know I am in San Anselmo, right?

Hi Michael,

Brave or crazy, the results are good so far and I haven't even advertised the list yet! 12 subscribers in 24 hours with no effort....and some posts, too. And before I go any further, I want you to know I would never say anything publicly about including other family group sheets on your site w/o you deciding you feel OK about it.

To give you an idea of a "One Name Study" page, take a look at what Shawn Matlock and I accomplished this Spring. He had inherited a truckload of documents, but had no web skills. I had been approached by an 83 year old researcher who wanted to be sure her efforts benefited future generations - her work picked up where the work of 4 other researchers stopped! We decided to put it all on one site. He sent me his data, I formatted it and uploaded it in a style he liked. I added what I had from Winnie and, in the case of this surname, when we were approached by some Afro-American and Native American descendants of this family, we decided to open up the conversation even further and include whatever references we could find to slaves or inter-racial marriages. It has been incredibly fruitful (tho, as I said, not worth any real dimes....).

We now have the raw material representing about 50 years of research by the most prominent know Matlock researchers online. Next step is to let those who have taken the work further add to what these researchers did (we will post their data in a different color - the reason Shawn chose B & W for the initial format).

Obviously you have web skills, so yes, you would just pick a format you prefer and use it to "broaden the branches" of the Mankin/s tree.... here is the Matlock url: http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~szmatlok/ Basically, you could do whatever the heck you wanted to do! My website is such a mishmash of surnames that I really don't want to add more than I have on it. I am already doing One Name work for two of my "smaller" surnames...You can see why I said "crazy" above.....

My real goal is to get a book written eventually..... this is all the research ;) My youngest just finished high school and for the first time in 27 years, my focus is not on my kids.... so I am going kinda nuts with all this.

No hurry, let's just continue to keep in touch...

Hi Michael,

(grumble grumble) well, I did it. I decided I really wanted a MANKIN/S mailing list so all the researchers can come together in one place to compare notes and sort out the fine details. I had it set up yesterday and I have begun to announce it. I am pointing folks to your website, so you may experience traffic and queries ;)

To join the list go here: <http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/surname/m/mankins.html> and do what it says. I posted to the ARWASH-L and will probably hit INWAYNE, ILVERMIL, NCORANGE, KYFLOYD as well. Other hot spots you can think of, let me know - oh yeah, MDPRINCEWM, MDCHARLES....

You get to decide if you want your site to be the repository for associated family group sheets or not... everything is going towards OneName studies for surnames. There may be no money in it, but at least future generations will be able to find the data... and it might get accurate....

Cheers, Jana

Ongoing Mankin quest..... Date: Thu, 10 Aug 2000 11:56:27 -0700 From: Jana Black <janab@slip.net> Organization: I know *exactly* what is in *each* of my piles To: Michael & Millie <thebell@pacbell.net>

Hi Michael,

Hope you are having a great summer - it has been much cooler this year down in Marin. I'm not complaining but it is weird!

Michael are you aware of or in contact with the widow of James Mankins; last known address: Jean (Mankins) Miller - 48 Robles St. - Sacramento CA 95828? Apparently, there is also a son who may have his father's research papers as the mother remarried in the 90s.... There are two other names: Lillie M. Campbell (she apparently has a Mankins family Bible which includes info on my line that I have heard of nowhere else) and a Mrs. James C. Mankins, all in CA. Do you know of, or have contact info for any of them? I would like to try to make contact....

Sue Nandor says James had entitled his work "Up Our Tree"...... I am especially interested as this work lists a death date for Edith/Eddie/Eda Mankins as 08-17-1867. I have searched and searched and cannot find any evidence of Edith and family after 1850. Finding evidence of Edith's death should connect or eliminate my Martha as her eldest daughter. If what I am saying confuses you, it is all chronicled here:

http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~jmbhome/2martha.html John..... As you commented once before, it is involving quite a bit of picky detective work! If this death date is correct, my Martha was married and had children by then and hopefully would be listed in an obit....

I know you are busy, and I would surely appreciate an answer! Thanks in advance....

Hi Kaye & EVERYONE!

Your listowner here... I am kinda answering both of Kaye's emails to me here... WELCOME to the list! I started it last year just so we *would* have a place to gather MANKINS as I certainly know there are *lots* of us out there ;) I am going to tell my WHOLE story here in case it sparks any ideas for any of you!

The list so far, has been quiet, but perhaps we can get something going! Kaye, please DO tell the Fine list to come onboard - as you know we are very interrelated! In a moment, I will update you on my latest progress... and We can try a ROLL CALL... I just looked and there are 44 of us on this list now! Let's get going... I invite everyone to list their line of descent so we can get to know each other and make connections!

I descend (at least I think I descend... I am still in the 99% sure category...looking for the *one* piece of proof I need) from the John Mills Quaker line. It is all posted here:

http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~jmbhome/2martha.html John I went and looked up all the Quaker records in Hinshaw and the Indiana records to create those charts. NOTE: I learned afterwards about the Quaker dating system and I need to go back and fix the dates before 1752, the rest are correct.

Briefly, the line is John > Henry > Aaron > Seth > Enos....I come into the MANKINS line with the marriage of Enos MILLS and Edith MANKINS 14 June 1848, location not proved. You can see the MANKIN line charted here: http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~jmbhome/edithmankins.html What I can prove is that Martha Jane MILLS was in Shelby Co., IN by Feb 1855 as my great grandfather was born there then. She did not marry my gg grandfather until June of that year, so it is questionable whether my g grandfather was Patrick KIRWINs son or not. I can say he claimed him... but I cannot explain the Swamp Fox story that was handed down in our family oral history. The closest I have come is to noting that Martha's cousin, Francis Marion MILLS lived on an adjoining farm in MO..... Other than that, I know that Edith's father, John Brackin MANKINS was quite a character who "commuted" back and forth from points in CA to AR and married 4 times, dying and being buried near Yosemite.

Since I got this much worked out(largely thanks to Kaye and Ruby Sharp and Sue Nandor), I have been trying to find even one actual piece of evidence to link my Martha Jane Mills to the Martha who is the daughter of Enos and Edith and I have been trying to learn what happened to Edith and children after Enos died. The last note of her was in 1852 in a letter from Enos brother, Seth. Good news: everything I have found continues to keep pointing me in this direction, Bad news: I haven't found even one scrap of paper making the connection yet... my notes are posted on the MILLS page... I do think I am "on the right trail" - the Oregon Trail. There are no records for this group in 1860 in MO, AK, IN, OH, NC, KY, TN, KS or OK... I have looked. It is possible all Edith's sons could have been killed during the Civil War, but I can find no records of any of them.

Sooo, here is what I have found: (FYI, everyone I will refer to is on this list!) I *have* made connections with descendants of a few potentially "key" people in the lives of Enos and Edith:

1)Gerry in OR is descended from Mary Ann MILLS MASSEY THOMPSON thru her son Sylvester. This is important as Gerry can establish that Sylvester went to Oregon with his wife, Perlina Skeen in 1853. This is important to me since Sylvester had administrated Enos' estate after he died in testate in 1849 in Dade Co., MO. suggesting he was one of the folks who helped Edith. Meanwhile, Mary Ann had married a second time after Matthew MASSEY died and went to Bell Co., TX with her new hubbie, Joseph THOMPSON. One of their sons, A.L. THOMPSON, became a judge and quite a bit is written about him. This suggested to me that Edith, a 28 year old widow in 1850 with 6 children aged 5 mos. to 10 years had likely gone to family for help. Chances are she was hoping to find a new husband as well to help her get those kids raised.... "Family" would have been in either Washington Co., AR; Wayne Co., IN; Bell County, TX or headed west.... so this is where I looked next...

2)Then, June RAMEY CLINE, a descendant of Enos and Ediths' daughter, Lucinda Charity MILLS RAMEY found me! Lucinda was Martha's baby sister... Lucinda had gone to live in Washington Co., AR when she married James M. RAMEY suggesting perhaps the family went back to AR from MO after Enos' death. >From my POV, I would like to find some evidence that Lucinda and Martha communicated, thus establishing where Martha went and that my Martha is the same woman, but, so far, we have not found this.... Lucinda did name a daughter Lydia Martha after her two sisters.

So, my question continues to be, where did Edith go........ and what happened to siblings Lydia, Henry, William Riley and Enos Jr??? I looked all through the Civil War records and did find a Henry, but cannot establish which Henry this would be.

3) Then this fall, I made a VERY exciting discovery!!! OREGON Census records showed William Riley MILLS married with a family in two successive censuses, 1860 & 1870! He is listed as born in AR, and his age matches, so I am sure it is the correct man! The census says William's first child, Margaret, was born in OR in 1860, so they got there sometime between 1852 and 1860...The listings are in Jackson and Josephine Counties, the same counties Sylvester MASSEY was in, so this continues to "feel right." He names a son John BRACKIN MILLS, which connects him to his grandfather, John BRACKIN MANKINS and he named a daughter Martha, suggesting loyalty to family still. Still no evidence of Edith, Lydia, Henry or Enos Jr., in OR however....did they die on the Trail???? Did they even take the trail?????

4)My aunt went to AR this fall and learned that the Obit regarding Mrs. E.A. MILLS is NOT our Edith, so at least that has been eliminated...

5) The rest of what I have is circumstantial... My Martha's sons, William, John and Charles spent quite a few years prospecting in CA, OR, WA and the Yukon before settling down. You can read a timeline of their adventures here: http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~jmbhome/willjackktimeline.html William finally went to Okanogan Co., WA and is found in the 1900 and 1910 Censuses there - three wives, no evidence of children, so far. John went to Winnemucca, NV - two wives and I suspect he may have had children and I surely would like to make contact with them!!! He died in a VA Hospital in Winnemucca in 1944 and I have a copy of his Obit which puts him there in 1918. Uncle Charlie went with his folks to Kansas and farmed there until his death in 1939. It was his wife, Aunt Lou, who wrote the family ballad that was the beginning of my search for Martha's family - you can read it here: http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~jmbhome/2patrick.html As you may note, the poem rhymes, but some of the facts may be fiction ;) I am in contact with all the KIRWIN descendants... This seems important as it makes sense to me that Martha may have encouraged her sons to "go west" knowing she had kin in OR and thru John Brackin MANKINS, connections in CA. They went to Calico, CA, which is in San Bernardino Co., south of Yosemite.... but still in the area...

This pretty much brings me to the present... I am looking for descendants of William Riley MILLS plus any evidence of what happened to Edith MANKINS MILLS and her other children, Henry, Lydia and Enos Jr.... if anyone on this list has any ideas, send them on!!!

Meanwhile, I hope you will all take the time to post what you do know about your kin... between us all perhaps we can piece the puzzle together!

Here's hopping the in this new Millennium we will get it right for future generations!

[MANKINS] New Cousin

Hi MANKINS Cousins!

I am SO happy to see a MANKINS list and have the opportunity to subscribe. I am primarily a FINE researcher and am listowner for the FINE list on RootsWeb, as well as a LARRABEE list (my husband's line). I am descended from Peter MANKINS, Sr. through his daughter, Rachel MANKINS (1816-1897) who married Johnathan Alfred FINE (1814-1875) in 1836 in Washington County, Arkansas. I'll be back with another post that I found on Eda Mankins...I THINK it's her....

First, I have to go tell the FINE list about this MANKINS list!!! Hooray!!!

Hi Debbie & everyone else,

Welcome! I am delighted to see this list take off. Not sure if this will help, but Michael Mankin has an incredible web site named Mankin Adventure Plantation here: http://www.mankin.org/

If you do not find what you want on the site, you might email Michael - simply know he tends to be quite busy and may not answer immediately - his info is worth the wait!

[MANKINS] Mankin Adventure

Hello, I just joined the MANKINS list. I am the gg-grandaughter Ezra Mankins from Washington County (Marietta) Ohio. His father was William F. Mankins from Virginia. I have been researching my line of Mankins for approx. 10 years. I have learned a lot about the history of the MANKINS, and enjoy helping others in their searches. Right now, I am trying to find out any information that I can about the Mankin Adventure. I understand it was a sub manor of ST. Thomas Manor. Does anyone out there have any information about the history of MANKIN ADVENTURE? DEBBIE in Philadelphia, PA.

Dear Millie & Michael, I've just seen your web site. Never saw anything so nicely done. Just happened to be trying to find William P. Mankins & Hattie Lemaster Mankins listed. They came from KY and lived their married lives in MN. Can't find when William died. Hattie married later & don't know when she died either. Do you have information on either of them? Mean time, congratulations on the beautiful job you did. on your site. That park is so pretty. Have a sister- in law in Sacramento. My in-laws lived in Placerville, CA, many years, and their parents before them running a gold mine. It's still there. All the relatives are buried there. Beautiful part of the country. I'm related to Hattie Lemaster. She was my grandfather's sister. Both born in the mid to later 1800's. My e-mail is jorescanin@mn.mediaone.net Janet

Hi Michael,

Yep, all the Mankin Family in the UK basically reside in the same part of the country - the North East of England - Yorkshire/County Durham. I only came out to New Jersey for 6 months but I've been here for almost 5 years now - Mortgage and all, in too deep now :-)

I am desperately trying to find the time to get www.mankin.net started and gets some pictures and Family tree on the web site. I know what you mean, there just isn't the time. I bought the website about three years ago and it's still under construction.

That's fascinating how you discovered the HMS Mankin. Thank you for the picture.

My Uncle Brian (brian@mankin.freeserve.co.uk) has been working on the Family Tree in the UK. I haven't really had time to help him out, but I promised him I would put anything he has onto the web.

Take Care, Jeremy

I was just browsing through your web site, www.mankin.org. I own www.mankin.net but have not got round to doing anything with the site yet - due to work. I am originally from England and have been in the US about 4 1/2 years. My family are researching the UK Family Tree in the North Riding/North Yorkshire area where most of the Mankin family resides. I think my Uncle has got as far back as 1700 or so. I'm sure you're web site will help him link the family all the way from 1600 to present day.

Mankins Date: Mon, 31 Jan 2000 15:51:36 -0500 From: JIM NANDOR <jimsuenan@dellnet.com> To: michael@mankin.org

Hi Michael,

I'm Sue Nandor, a direct descendant from Peter Mankins Sr. Was referred to your website by Jana Black. I'm in the process of reading thur your research. Tubman Mankin would be the father of Peter Sr..

As a small boy , It is said, Peter was bound to a baker in Cedar Point MD. Have you in knowledge of who the baker was? Or any document that would document this? I have been searching for this for some time.

You quote me (#15) as source of John being the father of Peter,Sr. This is handed down thur the Rachel (Mankin) Fine line. Rachel (9th child of Peter Sr.) married Jonathan Fine in 1836, Washington Co. Arkansas. I have traced a descendant from that lline up to the 50's, but have not had any luck beyond that. There is supposed to be an existing bible that lists John and Masa as Peter's parents. If I could find the indenture of Peter it would surely list who bound him over to the baker.

You have such a lovely presentation. I have only had a computer since last August and between my husband and myself we are like dumb and dumbmer. Still haven't figured out which is dumber.

Have a good day, looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Michael,

I have seen files where George was born about 1633 in Scotland. Supposedly his wife (unknown) was born in 1637. Do you know anything about this? I am real hesitant to document something that I don't feel comfortable with. These people do not show where they are getting their information.

Hi,

I am so glad you liked the picture. It is red native stone and it is located in the Reese Cemetery. This coffin shaped vault is said to be above his grave. Roughly chisled on the top of it is inscribed: In Memory of Peter Mankins Died December 30, 1881 Age 111yrs, 3 months

J.H. Van Hoose quoted, "Those who knew him best, loved him most. If he had ever had an enemy, he had outlived them all." Reese Cemetery is located west of Sulphur City (originally called "Mankins"). This is in Washington County.

I don't know how much you know about Peter Sr and Peter Jr. They were both unbelievable men. Very, very interesting. I will send you some information that I got from the library. The Fayetteville Library is full of information on the Mankins. I have copied everything that they have. I will make copies of the "good stuff" and get it to you. There is a lot that I copied that wasn't really anything, but my father inlaw (Charlie Cate) wanted me to get everything. So I did. If you would give me you home address, it would be easier to send copies to you that way. I have pulled a lot of my information from the old "Flashback" Volumes. I could spend 24/7 reading those books. There is so much interesting information. There is also a place in Bentonville, Arkansas called the "Peal House" that might have some information. I haven't yet checked there. I am hoping that I can spare some time to go. Peter Sr and Jr. were very well known in Washington County. In fact, Peter Jr. helped survey and build Fayetteville, Arkansas. They were both what you would call "Legends". I could go on and on about this, so I will shut up and send this email to you.

Charlie will look in his Cemetery book and the exact location of the Reese Cemetery and I will forward it to you.

Kim

Have read your comment and inspected your site. Both are quite informative. You have an excellent presentation.

I would comment that your description of "treason" could have applied to quite a number of people north and south of the border. George I was not a popular king. Suppose it was more a point of view about who was the rightful ruler.

It is at this point only a historical consideration

My sister is a Mankin also, but was born Sherrie Dee Gill. She married Don Short and lives with her husband and three children (Kevin, Brian and Heather) in Livermore, CA, not too far from you. I'll tell them about you. I am thinking about scanning the photo of John B. Mankin. Maybe you have seen his photo elsewhere, or better yet post it for responses.

My father was born Harry B. Mankin in E. St Louis, IL in the early 1900's. His father was John B. Mankin and I have an old and very good photo of him. He was probably born in the 1880's. He did not marry my grandmother and they parted ways. We have very little knowledge of him except his photo. Your page is the first I have seen on Mankins. It would be nice to see if we are related. The mankin name is not very common.

I practice land surveying in California.

Hello! Date: Wed, 15 Mar 2000 11:53:42 -0900 From: Leslie McVeigh <lesmc@alaska.com> To: TheBell@Pacbell.net

My name is Leslie (Ingram) McVeigh. I am the g-grandaughter of Stephen Sidney Mankins whos g-great grandfather was Peter Mankins Sr (b. Sep 19, 1770, d.1881). I have information that leads me to believe that his father was John Mankins(b.Jan 1744/45 in Port Tobacco...), whos father was Tubman Mankin(b.April 9, 1696 in Mankin's Adv., d.1748). I think where I am getting confused is the surname spelling.

My uncle Stephen D. Mankins was doing all of the geneology many years ago, and passed away in 1995. I do have all of the information that he gathered but, unfortunately I have no where to turn to ask questions. I have been told by his wife that he had believed that John Mankin had picked up the 's' from the Mankin's Adventure.. But I am not too sure, since your site only goes to John Mankin(s), and only lists Peter as a son. That would be my direct line to George Mankin.

I have also been recording all of the other Mankin family, and have a question that I was hoping you could help me with. I have one of the sons of Joseph W.(probably Wright) and Elizabeth(Kent) as being Joseph b.1850 in Byron, Oh d.1879 m. Zoe Knight on 14 Jan 1872. Then I have a son from Joseph and Susan(Metz) as being Joseph b. 1849 m. Zoe P. Knight. Sorry for the confusion, but am a little confused myself! Any information at all would be very helpful! Thank you for your time!!

Hi, Michael. I have a slightly different e-mail address now. My own mailbox, not my husband's. It is lmaranic@home.com in the event you wish to update your addresses.

A note on the controversial Joseph Mankin, born in Bryan, Ohio c.1850. The one married to Zoe Knight belongs to my Joseph W. Mankin and Elizabeth Kent.

However, according to Phyllis Cline there is another Joseph Mankin who was the son of Joseph M. Mankin and Susan Metz. HE was born June 21, 1849 and was married to Elisa (Nannie Louisa) Durk, who was born in Ohio in April 1848.

Since these two Josephs are about the same age, it would be easy to confuse them. I haven't seen your web site recently, but that would explain the 2 Joseph Mankins who were listed in the same generation with two different families. MINE is the one married to Zoe Knight.

Thanks again for everything. Linda.

Just got into your website tonight and noticed that the additional info I sent you a month or so ago has not been posted.

I'm into this stuff with an obsession now - have The Family Tree Maker program which sure makes it easier to keep track of everyone! Am taking a genealogy course, too, which puts me in touch with many good resources. It was YOUR website over a year ago that got me "hooked". Thanks for everything. Linda. P.S. I have a (slightly) different address now that I have my own mailbox.

Hi Michael! Happy Spring!

I have some corrections for your web site.

1) Under 3-5-3-1-2-1 Joseph Mankin and Susan Metz -- please remove Joseph Mankin and Zoe Knight 3-5-3-1-2-1-5. He is NOT their son.

2) ADD the following information to Joseph Mankin and Elizabeth Kent:

3-5-3-1-3-1-8 Joseph Mankin, born June 26, 1850 in Bryan, Ohio. Married January 14, 1872 in Bryan, Ohio to Zoe Peris Knight. He died August 28, 1879 in Turner, Oregon.

Zoe Peris Knight was born April 7, 1854 in Bryan, Ohio. She died January 12, 1882 in Turner, Oregon.

Their children: 3-5-3-1-3-1-8-1 Nettie Maud Mankin, born July 18, 1872. Died as an infant.

3-5-3-1-3-1-8-2 Glenn Lavelle Mankin, born October 7, 1873 in Turner, Oregon. Went off to war (Spanish-American? WWI?) and was not heard from again.

3-5-3-1-3-1-8-3 Guy Clinton Mankin, born Febuary 20, 1877 in Turner, Oregon. Died November 11, 1956 in Lebanon, Oregon. He was brought up by a family named Morris after his young parents died. Married Sarah (Sadie) Stanton in Oregon.

3-5-3-1-3-1-8-4 Iva Dell Mankin, born February 22, 1879 in Turner, Oregon. Died December 30, 1907 in Philomath, Oregon. She was adopted by E.W. and Hattie A. Durkee in 1882, after her parents died. Was married to a man named McDonald, and had 2 daughters before she died.

I think it is SO important to have all facts on the web-site as accurate as possible. That is why I am always questioning the sources of the material. For example, I would LOVE to know who researched the children of 3-5-3-1 William Mankin and Violet Kent. That is as far back as I can be sure, but I'm not even TOTALLY sure of these children. I sure wish I could find out where that information is located -- i.e. all the children of 3-5-3-1. AH WELL -- I will continue working on it.

Thanks for keeping the MANKIN name afloat. I have run out of male Mankins in MY family. Too bad. Warm regards to you. Linda.

Hi, Michael! I picked up a couple of corrections for you, when you are working on your website:

3-5-3-1-3-1 Joseph Mankin died in ALLEGAN County, not Allegany.

3-5-3-1-3-1-9 Her names was LAVINA OR LAVINIA, not Levina or Lovina.

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-5 Harlan Mankin's wife's name was MENETTE, NOT Minette.

I assume that you received all the great stuff I found about about Joseph Mankin who was married to Zoe P. Knight?? Thay became the Turner, Oregon branch. He does NOT belong to Susan Metz.

When do you update your site? I watch it with interest. Many thanks! Linda.

Dear Michael,

Here are more corrections for you to do when you update your site:

3-5-3-1-7 Mary MUMMERT

3-5-3-1-7-1 George M. Mankin, killed in Civil War, in attack on supply train , near Chattanooga on October 8, 1863. Married Mary Ann Rukinbrod on October 27, 1853. He left 4 children:

3-5-3-1-7-1-1 Alcena Mankin, b. 28 July 1854 in East Fairfield, Columbiana County, Ohio

3-5-3-1-7-1-2 Jonathan David Mankin, b. 21 July 1856 in East Fairfield, Columbiana County, Ohio

3-5-3-1-7-1-3 Martha Mankin, b. 5 August 1860 in Franklin Square, Columbiana County, Salem Township, Ohio

3-5-3-1-7-1-4 George Albert Mankin, b. 2 August 1862 in Franklin Square, Columbiana County, Salem Township, Ohio

This is painstaking research gotten through records from the National Archives, so I know it is correct.

I am making a nuisense of myself, but I hope you will make the corrections that I am sending along as I find out.

Bet you are sorry you ever started this Mankin website! Ha.

Best regards, Linda Maranis.

Are you running for a polical office, Michael?! That must take a LOT of time. Which office is it? Keep us posted.

Please let me know when you have this new information on the site. I love the way it looks - the colors - etc., - it is all very clear.

Corrections:

Remove 3-5-3-1-2-1-5 He is in the WRONG place.

He STAYS where you also have him at 3-5-3-1-3-1-8. I have lots of information on his 3 children, but think I have sent it to you already. They are all in and around Turner, Oregon. Since he and his wife Zoe died young, their 3 children were adopted out.

At 3-5-3-1-3-1 Joseph W. Mankins - he died in Hopkins, Michigan on September 12, 1903.

Thanks, Michael - and good luck on your race!! Linda.

He does NOT belong to Joseph Mankin and Susan Metz. It pains me to see him there, as people accept that info as "gospel." Many thanks for all your efforts!! Linda.

Hi Michael!

I love what you have done with the website. Love the picture of Benjamin Mankin, and the one of the Sultana. Where did you get the one of the Sultana? (You told me already where you got Benjamin). I have one of the Sultana which I was going to put in my genealogy when it is completed, so was delighted that you put that item of history on your site.

Under 3-5-3-1-3 George Mankin, you might like to add that SHE, Charity Jane Wright, died in Hopkins, Michigan on August 3, 1870.

Cemetery is spelled "cemetery" whenever it is used. Sometimes it is mis-spelled "cemetary" as I used to spell it that way!

I have written to Sharron Mankin Nelson to ask her if she wishes to give you permission to use her name in your website. I gave her your e-mail address, and you may hear from her.

Thanks again for all your hard work! Linda.


Joseph Mankin and Zoe Knight Date: Wed, 12 Jul 2000 17:48:55 -0400 From: LINDA MARANIS <lmaranis@home.com> Organization: @Home Network Member To: "Mankin, Michael" <thebell@pacbell.net>

Hi Michael! PLEASE POST THIS WHEN YOU CAN. It took me months to ferret out all of this information. I have MUCH more, but all the descendents have surnames that are not "Mankin" and I believe that you do not want those. Am I right???

Here is the info on Joseph Mankin and Zoe Knight:

3-5-3-1-3-1 Joseph W. Mankin - please add: died 12 September 1903 in Hopkins, Michigan.

3-5-3-1-3-1-8 Joseph Mankin, b. 26 June 1850 in Bryan, Ohio. Died 28 August 1879 in Turner, Oregon. Married Zoe Peris Knight on January 14, 1872 in Bryan, Ohio. She was a daughter of Samuel Knight and Amanda Johnson.

Their children:

3-5-3-1-3-1-8-1 Nettie Maud Mankin, b. 18 July 1872. Died as infant.

3-5-3-1-3-1-8-2 Glenn Lavelle Mankin, b. October 7, 1873 in Turner, Oregon. After his parents died he went East and was not heard from again. It is thought he eventually joined the Navy.

3-5-3-1-3-1-8-3 Guy Clinton Mankin, b. 20 February 1877 in Turner, Oregon. Died 10 November 1959 in Lebanon, Oregon. He married Sarah Irene Stanton, daughter of Andrew and Sarah Stanton.

3-5-3-1-3-1-8-4 Iva Dell Mankin, b. 22 February 1879 in Turner, Oregon. Died 30 December 1907 in Philomath, Oregon. She was adopted by E.W. and Hattie Durkee in 1882 after her parents died. Married a man named McDonald.

3-5-3-1-3-1-8-3-1 Dell Marie Mankin, b. 25 July 1902 in Turner, Oregon. Died 01 November 1995 in Lebanon, Oregon. Married Ray Hauxwell on 14 August 1921.

3-5-3-1-3-1-8-3-2 Glenn Linn Mankin, b. 05 December 1913 in Crabtree, Oregon. Died 23 December 1995 in Portland, Oregon. Married Thelma Agnes Dorland on June 11, 1938 in Washington State.

3-5-3-1-3-1-8-3-2-1 Sharron Lynn Mankin, born 12 August 1943 in Portland, Oregon. Married Mark Frederick Nelson on 14 December 1968 in Palo Alto, California.

Here are a couple of other corrections you might want to make:

In 8th Generation:

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-3 Inez Maude Manking DID marry Ralph Edwards. Remove the question mark.

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-5 Harlan Sanford Mankin. It was HE who died on 16 January 1969 and not "she".

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-2 Ernest Mankin was born 22 January 1877 in Lafayette, Indiana and died 16 February, 1938 in Fremont, Michigan. He married Birdie Adella Smith 6 June 1900 in Chardon Ohio. Their children:

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-2-1 Hilda Ida Mankin, b. 12 September 1901 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Died 13 September 1985 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Married Henry Elisha Becker August 1, 1925 in Grandville, Michigan.

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-2-2 Helen Katherine Mankin, b. 25 November 1903 in Alliance, Ohio. Died 4 June 1930 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Married Sigmond A. Gratcyk on 31 March, 1924.

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-2-3 Pauline Frances Mankin, b. 29 July 1905 in Alliance, Ohio. Died 16 December, 1988 in Hopkins, Michigan. Married Harold William Packer on June 26, 1926 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-2-4 Florence Adelle Mankin, b. 11 October 1907 in Alliance, Ohio. Died 01 January 1998 in Northglenn, Colorado. Married Asa James Hyde on June 24, 1928 in Alma, Michigan.

Children of Ernest Mankin and Lena Work:

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-2-5 Charles Ernest Mankin, b. 06 August 1917 in Livingston, Texas. Died 16 June 1986 in Arizona. Married Frances Reed on 18 May 1940 in Hart, Michigan.(?)

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-2-7 Marion Virginia Mankin, born 12 March 1923 in Fremont, Michigan. Died 25 June, 1965 in Fremont, Michigan. Married Michael Assante on March 10, 1945 in Charleston, South Carolina.

3-5-3-1-3-1-2-2-6 Betty Mae Mankin, b. 11 November, 1919. Died May 1921.

Will stop here for tonight. This finishes the Mankins that I have. Other ones are different surnames because the children were daughters.

Thanks Michael, for all your efforts!! Linda.

Hi Michael!

Do you still have the info and corrections that I sent you some time ago?? I haven't seen it posted yet - and I have such good stuff there. Would like to see MY Joseph Mankin and Zoe Knights info there.

Do you want me to send it to you again?

Let me know when you are going to be working on the website, and I will get you the changes that should be done. There are several corrections, and much additional info.

Hope you are fine, and not too busy with "real" work. The genealogy is much more important! Ha!!!

Best regards, Linda Maranis.

Hi Michael!

I have assembled my personal Mankin genealogy, with pictures and stories of "The Frog Man's" Career. Have put it into a booklet for you if you would like to have it. Maybe you do NOT wish to be a repository for all the Mankin genealogies, but if this would interest you I would be happy to send it along. However, if you say you don't want any more PAPER around your house, I would certainly understand. Is easy to get inundated. Wanted to ask you before I sent it.

Stay calm, and don't get tooooo busy. Seize the day! Warm regards, Linda.


Mankin Website Date: Sat, 02 Sep 2000 21:27:18 -0400 From: LINDA MARANIS <lmaranis@home.com> Organization: @Home Network Member To: "Mankin, Michael" <thebell@pacbell.net>

Hi Michael!

I have some great pictures of the contortionist Harlan Sanford Mankin (3-5-3-1-3-1-2-5) 8th Generation from Josiah. Would you like to have some to choose from for your website? I would be happy to loan them to you, but would like to have them back when you are finished with them. He was a world class contortionist who travelled the world in the 1920's. Quite famous in vaudeville.

Let me know if I should mail them to you.

His wife's name is spelled "Menette" when you are doing corrections.

I see in the 8th generation you have only John Sanford Mankin' and Joseph Mankin's issue. The others from the 7th generation also had issue. I think I had better snail mail them to you so you can add them to the website. Will do that when I send the pictures. Let me know if you want them.

Isn't this a HUGE job!!?? Best regards, Linda


Mankin website Date: Tue, 18 Apr 2000 23:49:41 -0600 From: Lisa Deason <ldeason@enol.com> To: michael@mankin.org

Mr. Mankin,

I saw your fantastic website. I am looking for some Charles Mankins' and am getting confused about who's who in Fairfax county and Alexandria, Virginia.

I am looking for Charles Mankin, born 1824 to unknown parents. He married Sarah Jane Legg, daughter of Eli Legg/Jane Prince (which is line I'm really working on) on 15 Aug 1850 in Alexandria. He died 15 Oct 1879 in Alexandria, and is buried in Union Cemetery there.

Two known children: Charles Mankin born 1853 in Alexandria. Married about 1879 to Sarah ____. Wallace W. (may be William) born 1856/7.

I did not see a master index on your site. I may have missed it. Do you have information about these Mankins?

I was also interested to see the surname Hirst, as this is my maiden name. My end of line person is Thomas Hirst, born 7 June 1836 in Loudoun Co., VA to Edward Hirst and Mary Ebarhart. Does this sound at all familiar?

Thank you very much,

Lisa Deason

Dear Mike: I have been awake most of nite thinking of your web site and how you have given your dad much thanks and I know joy when he sees what you

have done.I was very close to Hubert all of our lives, I suspect you knew this, as small kids our mother you to dress us as twins, back then they had BUSTER BROWN outfits and we wore sameoutfits and shoes until we were about seven. there was 23 months different in our age. Everywhere Hubert went I wanted to go with him.You know tha when he worked on railroad that it was a 16 hr. job,most of time 6 days week.It was necessary for him to work at Effingham account he made more money, I always wished he lived closer, I remember he could not buy home for helping someone in family to keep up. He give mon money for down payment on her home so she would have a home of her own, yet he would do without also he helped me the time Douglas went to Indianapolis for his operation, I tried to repay him and would do anything that I could to help after he bought his home. He wasn't able to do much repair so your mother done most of it. I remember when you caught polio how

she would work with you with exercises to keep you limbered up. I know how he would talk to you at times to get you ralled up so not give up. He and your mother have much to be pleased about the way you have battled this handicap through no fault of anyone and have done so good. I believe if you had not been tied down so to speak you would have been President some day if you decided that was what you wanted. I know everbody pullled for you and prayed

for you and someday you will be General in GODS army. May you be strong and able to do what you want to.Love , uncle Leonard You know I could tell you so much more but you know alot about your family and also your mothers family how proud they are of you.

I have been reading the Mankin family history you put on the web. It's amazing! I never knew my father because he and my mother were only married for a total of 17 months. Probably only together for 10 to 11 months. Joseph A. Mankin married my mother ( Bessie Louise Moore or Atchley) at Gallup N.M. on July 1 , 1944. He worked for the Santa Fe railroad in the mid 1940's in Arizona. I was born in Winslow , Arizona. I think he was an engineer. Heard he died in the late 1950's. If you ever run into any info on him or I can help you let me know.

Hi Bob & everyone!

I just knew this list would "take off" - there are 8 of us in one day and I haven't even contacted the folks I know who are researchers "par excellence" of this line!

Bob, some of my favorite relatives (and a few chiggers I have met personally......) "hang out" in the old Jenks Cemetery! I have been there many times..... My grandmother Edna went to school in Jenks and my g grandfather, Frank (Francis Marion) Kirwin was Justice of the Peace there in the 20s... The Carpenter family (including Mary Kirwin Carpenter) owned a small hotel out by the railroad. It is indeed *this* very line that is connected to Mankins through Martha Jane Mills, daughter of Enos and Edith Mankins Mills. Our branch kinda did things "by guess and by golly" and there seems to be a significant "lack" of documentation (not to mention a *whole caboodle* of 7 month babies ;] what can I say....?

I haven't "officially" claimed this line yet because I can't so far close a 3 year gap.... but oboy, everything fits! The fact that you are in Jenks gives me even more hope that I will soon figure this all out! You can see my research notes here: http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~jmbhome/2martha.html#John http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~jmbhome/edithmankins.html

I have relatives still in Henryetta and environs, so give a wave if you head down the freeway ;) I am in the SF Bay Area where *finally* just this week, it is feeling like summer.....

More later - I am trying to get more subscribers on the list. This is great! Jana

James & Sarah had six children. "Aunt Belle" (according to my uncle, NO ONE called her Gramdma) married 1) Ulysses Grant Myers and 2) William Sylvester Fisher (b.1872). Husband #1 died when a railroad tunnel collapsed, leaving her with a small daughter (Mary Myers Cassidy) and a son (J.W. Myers) born a month after the accident. With Husband #2, Belle had twin sons (Daniel & Joseph Fisher) and my grandmother, Nora Opal Fisher Biggins. I'd like to be able to tie-in my Mankins connection to the rest of the stream (families always seemed more like rivers than trees to me). Thanks in advance for any help. Pamela Biggins Mike

Here`s hoping someone has found records that would show the connection between the Charles E. Mankins of Alexandria, Va. and those colonial lines that have been so well documented from Md. and Va.I think my Catherine (Kitty) Mankins may have been the dau. of one Charles E. Mankins as she named her son Charles E. Tennisonans a dau. Elizabeth about 1800 in Alexandria, Va. any new info. out there? Let me know. Sue in Al.

I have in my files a Charles Edward MANKIN from Alexandria, Virginia. When the Mankin(s) came to America from Scotland, there was no "s" on the end of their name. As time went on, one of the family added the "s" and his line spelled it with the "s" from that point on. However, some did not adopt the new spelling and retained the original "Mankin"

Charles Edward Mankin, born July 24, 1839 in Alexandria, Virginia, married on December 20, 1882 to Ann Valinda Lynch in Dulin Chapel Methodist Church, South, Falls Church, Virginia. Charles Edwarn Mankin died on September 13, 1903 in Falls Church, Fairfax County, Virginia. Ann Valinda Lynch was born on Decemb4er 14, 1860 in "Hill House", Falls Church, Virginia, died February 7, 1925 in Falls Church, VA.

The Father of Charles Edward Mankin was Mark matthew Mankin II and his mother was Elizabeth Ann May.

Children of Charles Edward Mankin and Ann Valinda Lynch:

1. Ellen Elizabeth Mankin, born April 7, 1883 in Falls Church, Fairfax County, VA; died October 14, 1903 in Bethesda, Montgomery County, Maryland. She married Herbert Nelson Hirst.

2. Clinton Edward Mankin, born January 14, 1884 in Falls Church, Fairfax County, VA; died May 9, 1918 in Falls Church. No information on his marriage.

3. Mary Marguerite Mankin, born March 10, 1888 in Falls Church, VA; died March 12, 1891 in Falls Church, VA. No marriage info.

4. Linda Mae Mankin, born May 30, 1889 in Falls Church, VA. No death info. She married Clarence Marshall Hirst.

5. Ruth Cackley Mankin, born April 14, 1896. She married Edgar Allen Hilderbrand.

6. Charles Guy Mankin, born June 28, 1901 in Falls Church, VA. He married Blanche Woodrow Miller.

I hope this helps you out. I have more information on ancestry, descendants, etc, and can look up (given a little time) when the name change was made and by whom. Good luck, and God bless you.

Michael;

I had a cousin send the web site and it is terrific. I had no idea there were so many Mankin's. We have a very small extended family and as far as I know my roots are mainly in the West Virginia / Ohio regions. My father is Gardner Mankin and his only sibling (Kenneth) passed away in the 70s. I have half heartedly tried to find any remaining blood but have run into many road blocks. Any ideas?

Hello, Does this article seem to imply that John Bracken Mankin once owned and sold Carson City NV for $500 dollars and a few mustangs? Read the second paragraph! This town became one of the richest in the West. Hope you enjoy the story if you haven't read it before. Michael Mankin

Archives and Records Management Nevada State Archives Historical Myth a Month Myth # 24 Eagle Valley and Carson City by Guy Rocha, Nevada State Archivist

No! Carson City is not in Carson Valley, despite what some uninformed newcomers to our area may believe. We trust Myron Angel's History of Nevada (1881) when we are told that Eagle Valley, where our state capital is located, was named in December 1851. Eagle Valley acquired its name from the trading post in the southwest end of the valley where Frank Hall shot and killed an eagle, then stuffed the bird and mounted it over the station entrance door. Hall, who sold his interest in Eagle Station and Ranch in 1853, died in Carson City in 1902. Three years before his death, Hall repeated the story of Eagle Valley's naming to journalist Alfred Doten who published it in his history of Nevada's capital.

But should we always trust Myron Angel's ground breaking work? The myth in this story relates to the sale of Eagle Ranch in 1858 and the events that immediately followed. Virtually every account of the transaction has John B. Mankins selling the ranch, which composed a large portion of Eagle Valley, to Abraham Curry, John J. Musser, Frank M. Proctor, and Benjamin F. Green for a $1,000, "the payment being $500 coin and some mustangs." The story is found in Angel's History of Nevada (pp.532-33) and cites Carson City's Nevada Tribune of July 17, 1876. Doten, in 1899, claimed it was ". . . half a dozen mustangs."

Well, what's wrong with this story since the sources are relatively contemporary to the event?! Abe Curry had been dead some three years in 1876, Musser died in 1871, and Proctor and Green had left Nevada. So who related this story to the newspaper, or had the myth of Abe Curry and the founding of Carson City already begun? Clearly, it had! If one examines the deed transferring the property from "J.B. Mankin[s] to Curry, Proctor & Musser" on August 12, 1858, and filed with the Ormsby County Recorder on June 11, 1862, a number of facts stand out. First of all, B.F. Green, Frank Proctor's father-in-law, was not a partner in the transaction, however he witnessed it and had the deed recorded. Other reliable sources tell us that after the completion of the deal, Proctor gave Green one-half of his one-third holding in the Eagle Ranch. More importantly, while the selling price was $1,000, the down payment was $300 and the balance was to be paid within thirty days. There is no mention of mustangs in the deed, although that does not rule out the possibility that Mankin later took the horses in lieu of cash. Whatever the case, only Doris Cerveri, in writing her biography of Abraham Curry (1990), ever examined the deed to confirm the legal terms of the sale. Angel's account of the Eagle Ranch sale has been repeated ad nauseam in publications, and now we find it broadcast throughout the world on history-related websites.

It is also Angel's History of Nevada that gives Abe Curry the status of Carson City's principal founder in 1858 and relegates Musser, Proctor, and Green to the shadows. The truth be known, Curry would not emerge as a mover and shaker in the new town until 1861 following Congress' creation of Nevada Territory. John Musser and Frank Proctor, both prominent attorneys in Sierra County, California before relocating to western Utah Territory, were far more active than Curry in the political effort to create a new territory. Musser, the former Sierra County District Attorney who ran unsuccessfully for the California State Senate in 1858, was selected as president of a constitutional convention in July 1859. The objective: secede from Utah Territory and create a provisional Nevada Territory. Following the convention in Genoa, he was elected the provisional territory's delegate to Congress and travelled to Washington, D.C. Proctor, the former Sierra County Assessor, while serving as a convention delegate from the Humboldt District was chosen as a vice-president and declared his candidacy for Chief Justice of the Territorial Supreme Court. Curry, too, served as a delegate, yet the records of the convention portray him as a minor player from Eagle Valley.

Abraham Curry, the last to arrive to the California gold country and Sierra County, was indeed the least prominent of the four men who laid out Carson City in Utah Territory. Even Benjamin Green, who was not a full partner in this business consortium, had recently served as Sierra County Treasurer. Curry's business acumen and perseverance ultimately propelled his career in eclipsing those of his partners prior to his death in 1873. Looking back, we can say that Curry clearly deserves to be called the "Father" of Carson City for all he did to promote and develop the town. However there were other principal players in the drama and intrigue surrounding the purchase of Eagle Ranch, the founding of Carson City, and the establishing of Nevada Territory that for too long have been overshadowed by the much-deserved tributes to Abe Curry. Curry has a statue on the legislative mall and a street name to remind us of his accomplishments, Musser and Proctor only street names, and Green has been all but forgotten. Credit Myron Angel for shaping our perceptions over the years and, at times, misleading us!

The name 'Mankin' is common as mud in Russia, as my sister found when she visited there. It is about as common as Smith or Jones in Britain.

In Britain the name is rare. Most people of that name are of Russian origin and came over to both Britain and north America around 1900-1910.

The brick foundry has been gone since the 50's when the three men I mentioned went bust. Too bad as it looks real neat in your picture. There's an office park now where it stood. Moving the place would be impractical I'd think as its rather sprawlig, and the setting is so much a part of it. I think the owners are holding out for a corporate benefactor but I don't think they'll have much luck because of where it is. The packet is in the mail as you read this. Enjoy.

Re: Reply: Mankin Mansion Date: Mon, 07 Aug 2000 09:21:44 -0400 From: Scott_Bard@dom.com To: Millie Bortin / Michael Mankin <thebell@pacbell.net>

Hi Millie and Mike. My wife and I went to see the house yesterday. Boy, its a long, sad story. I have the folder from the realtor with lots of info. If you'd like I can mail you a copy. The house was completed over an approx. fifteen year period by E. T. Mankin in 1924. He built it adjacent to his brick foundry. This was convenient as he was a workaholic before being one was cool. Before building the home he was known to stay at the foundry all week and only go home on weekends. Interestingly, in all the paperwork I have, there is very little mention of his family. No wonder.

The current property is only three acres, having been subdivided over the years. The house is a sprawling Georgian Revival that E.T. is reputed to have designed himself. Before getting into the brick trade he was a general contractor with a penchant for architecture books. As you would expect it is a brick showplace. In addition to the main house there's a farmer's cottage, a gardener's house, a summer house, a garden cuppola, a barn, a bocce ball and tennis court, loads of brick fencing creating multiple terraces, four fountains, a pond and cisrtern, and much more that I'm probably leaving out.

The house has been broken up somewhat. The farmer's cottage is rented out. The gardener's house and summer house are in the midst of renovation for rental. The west wing of the main house is broken into two additional apartments and there's a third apartment in the basement. You wouldn't think it, but this doesn't really detract from the main house. There's still plenty of room. There's a grand foyer, music room and living room as you come in the front door. Its still pretty spectacular, but has seen better days.

Here comes the sad part. E. T.'s son, who was his likely heir, was killed in WWI, before the house was completed. The house is sometimes known as Irwin Estate(?) in his honor. When E.T. died in 1951 the house and foundry were bought by three speculators who soon went bust. The house sat vacant for some twenty years during which it was probably vandalized numerous times. There was reputed to have been a large sculpted rooster and chicken made from brick in the back yard that were destroyed during this time. Well, the current owners bought the property in 1986 for $1 from a charitable organization with the understanding that they would work to restore it. At best I'd say they kept it from falling down but its far from restored. There are numerous places where the slate roof has leaked and destroyed ceilings and woodwork. Much of the brick work is crumbling and would be a full time job to restore. Lots of the exterior wood is rotten. The gardener and summer houses are gutted and would be a major project unto themselve's. It goes on and on. My wife and I are heartbroken to have seen what could have been. We would loved to have seen it eighty years ago.

My wife and I are looking for a grand property that we could live in and run a specialty garden center from. The layout of this place is absolutely perfect. Its just that it would literally be a full time job to keep this place from falling down, even with the help of contractors. The big plus from the seller's perspective is the potential $3,000 rental income it generates. In my eye this is break-even money as it would not be hard to spend that on repairs each month. Plus, the house is in a not so desirable part of town. This is not snobbery. My wife grew up there and absolutely would not allow our three kids to attend school there. She's worked too hard to get away from Highland Springs. Here's the killer. The seller is asking $459,000 for it! Sure, maybe if it was fully restored I'd consider it, but this place makes Tom Hank's "Money Pit" look like the Taj Mahal. Its so-so sad. The way I see it, its like the rusting Lincoln Continental I have in my backyard. If it was fixed up it would be worth $5,000. Right now its not worth the towing charges to get rid of it. I wouldn't try to sell it for $5,000 because that's what it would be worth some day.

Hope this wasn't to wordy. Write back with any questions.

does anyone know anything about one David Mankins, a merchant in Alexandria, Va. 1800? I find him on a city census along with a Charles Mankins, a cooper. Hoping someone knows who his parents were. Thanks, Sue in Al. again

Just noticed that I copied the name of one Jane Mannecks in a very early census (!800) of Alexandria, Va. and wondered if it could possibly be a "botched" spelling of Mankins. What do you think? Thanks, Sue in Al.

Hello, My name is Shanti Sartori. I have a Mary A. Mankin in my family tree that I simply can't find anywhere. She was born 12 December 1854 and died 25 June 1921. She married a John Beaver, my great-great grandfather. I was hoping you might have a lead on her. Thank you for your time.

Hello. Thank you for replying. I have no info on location for Mary Mankin. I know the Beaver family she married into has ended up in Indiana. I know that's little. Thank you for looking and if anything on her shows up please let me know. I just started searching for her so almost any info would be news to me.

Thanks again, Shanti ://www.hotmail.com

Hi Michael! Linda Maranis e-mailed me about your website. I am sending this to you to give you my permission to list my name and generation. I received her "book" last week and am fascinated by all I am discovering, esp that so many Mankins have roots in the mid-West, and particularly in Michigan. No wonder I feel at home here! Keep me posted. I am so glad that both of you are doing this. More later, Sharron (Mankin) Nelson ://www.familyhistory.com/rd.asp?id=1919761

Well, first off Congratulations on your new home! Secondly, my Mom's great-great grandfather is old Peter himself! (it just is easier to say it that way instead of 3xgrandfather of mine, see that just doesn't sound right!) Anyway, my Mom was born in 1912 in Benjamin, Tx, a few miles from Mankins, Tx and my husband and I live only an hour away. I am having a blast researching the family history. Looking forward to seeing what you have. Toni Hopper

Thankyou for your site that I just found. What a wonderful way for us novices to find out about our lineage. I am a descendant of Tubman, his son John, his son Peter, his son Issac Braken, his son Issac Johnson, his son Ervin. I am one of six children of Ervin. Being new at this, I found your work to be invaluable, thankyou for sharing. Any information or suggestions would be appreciated. I live in Colorado and the Issac's were Texas Mankins. Thanks again, Terry Mankins Sower

Hello, me again. Just reviewed your information again and cannot believe how much my deceased brother looks like the photo accompanying the text. Also, I would like to contribute any information I may have to help the Mankin site. Did you know that there is a Mankins Crossing in Texas? Terry Mankins Sower

Yes, Mankin and Mankins, Texas are one and the same. Samuel Mankins moved to Georgetown, Texas and was the son of Peter and Rachel Bracken Lewis. Samuel might have added the "s" as we have used that form of Mankin since. Samuel was involved in land transactions as early as 1849. He was listed in 1850 census.He and wife Docia Williams came from Madison Co., Ark. to Williamson Co. Texas in 1848 or 1849. Estate of Samuel Mankins probate was filed 7-6-1881. Mankins Crossing was the first crossing on the Chisholm Trail on the San Gabriel River. The crossing does have a state historical marker placed on the site. Samuel was a sporting man. One of the first recreational installations made there was a race track and the first race was between Sam's mare "Shadthy" ridden by his 12 year old son Henry, and a horse named "Old Smoke." Samuel's son Issac Bracken was born in 1857 in Georgetown. His son Issac Johnson was born December 7, 1898, also in Georgetown from a second marriage. My father, Ervin was the eldest child of Issac J., born in 1921 and still living. He was a Lt. in the Air Corps in WWII flying P-61 (Black Widow) in the Pacific. Joe Lee was the second son of Issac J. and was a Radio Officer of the US Maritime in WWII. The third child was a daughter, Verna Rose, a medical transcriptionist. My father, Ervin was a Petroleum engineer before retiring. I'M the eldest of Ervin's, followed by Judith, John, Thomas and Robert. As my father was in the petroleum field, we moved frequently, often, and from coast to coast. He was born in Belton, Texas and the four eldest children were born in Texas, the youngest in California. We moved to Colorado in 1958 and have been here since then. Joe's children are still residents of Houston. Hope this hasn't been too boring, but seems as if no one has this side of the Mankins family line. I believe that my g'father Issac J. had two sons by a previous marriage, but as that generation goes, not much information has ever been discussed. Thanks for replying. Terry Mankins Sower

Mankin Geneology Date: Sun, 21 May 2000 21:30:22 -0500 From: Whitney Laning <laningwp@mindspring.com> To: michael@mankin.org

Michael, Hi. My name is Bobbi Laning. My maiden name is Mankin and I have been doing Geneology research on Mankin for 7 years now. I recently visited, "Mankins, Texas", and let me tell you there is alot to be desired there. Not to mention that I couldn't find any history about the town from the Dallas library. Your web site is very good. I have visited it several times. I feel like so many other long lost Mankin cousins that I keep in contact with feel that there is a few missing lines of Mankins. And it is impossible to trace my line back to George Mankin (Ancestor), or even Richard Mankin for that matter. I thought for a long time that I was linked to Stephen through Tubman then Charles (1733-1810) then another Charles came after that, though I cannot prove that either. Then, I was stuck on the point that I maybe follow the Mankins from Baltimore (on your web site, I went to Greenmount Cemetery in Baltimore and took lots of pictures of the grave site of Charles and Mary Mankin), but still I havn't been able turn up anything there either. So, I am still stuck where I am, and seven years later and no lead in sight. My current line goes like this, Bobbi Laning (Me) Maryland; Robert Mankin (My Dad)1943 Maryland; Charles Mankin (1) 1911-1967 Maryland; Charles Mankin (2) 1882-1916 Virginia; Charles Mankin (3) 1853-1918 Virginia; Charles Mankin (4) 1824-1879 Virginia. This is where I stop, and I am missing approximately three lines of Mankins that just don't seem to exist. I was going to settle for just believing that I came from the line of Tubman Mankin, but I need more proof. So, I continue to seek information about where my Mankin line connects. I have correspondences from several Mankins who have shared with me their lines. Thank you for taking the time to read this long and drawn out email. Please feel free to email me back at mailto:Laningwp@mindspring.com or you can write me.

Thank for your time Michael, Bobbi Laning

Thanks very much for your reply and for this information. I'll try to follow up on it. How do you find time to do all this? I'm going to be out of town for a week or so, and am in a crunch at work getting ready, but when I get back, I'll try to get in touch with my cousin, John C. (who recently moved from Memphis to Estes Park, CO) and gather the info from the Mankin family Bible. Most of it, my father transcribed to some pages he stuck in the Hendrick Bible, so I have the info if not the Bible.

I appreciate your efforts for the family.

Hi. I just discovered your beautiful site, www.mankin.org, and look forward to exploring it thoroughly. I live in Boulder, Colorado, but my branch of the Mankins are from Rutherford Co. (Murfreesboro), TN. My grandfather, John Benton Mankin, married Annie Octavia Hendrick (5/21/89); my father Jack Robinson Mankin (b. 6/17/04, d. 1/18/79) was the youngest of three, and moved to Memphis around 1929. My sister Patty Hendrick Mankin (b. 7/2/38, d. 4/19/79) and I (b. 9/2/40) were born there; I moved to Boulder in 1969.

I have the Hendrick family Bible and have some records for some of their forbears going back to ~1500, in Essex and Hertfordshire, coming to Connecticut around 1650. I don't have Mankin records nearly so far back, but my cousin has the Mankin family Bible and I plan to track down as much info as I can there when I get a little time.

I'll try to get together what information I have on the Mankin branch and send it to you; we'll see if the trees intersect somewhere.

In any event, it was nice to find your site, and I'll enjoy exploring it. Thanks for making the effort to put it all together.

Yours truly, William Gray (Bill) Mankin
