Photo of Don Taylor with cat Nasi.In Part 1 of this “ Manning Deep Dive” into my great-grandmother’s ancestors, I created a Kentucky Research Toolkit and verified what I think I know.

In Part 2 of my look at the Mannin(g)s of Carter County, I found five Mannin families of interest during the 1880 Census.

In Part 3, I’m looking at Mannin(g) families during the 1870 Census in Carter County, Kentucky.

1870 Census – Carter County – Mannin(g)

Carter County was created in 1838.

My third great-grandfather was enumerated as Enock Mannon rather than Enoch Mannin. So, I need to expand my research of the Mannin(g)s to include all of the alternate spellings – Mannan, Mannen, Mannin, Mannon, and Manning.

There were 6 Mannin families, which included 38 entries. They are as follows:

Family 1 – Precinct 4, Post Office: Grayson, Page 10 – Mannon – Lines 34-39

Mannon Family Age Relationship
Enock (Enoch) 48 Head
Manuroa (Minerva) 48 Known Wife
Meridith 19 Known Son
Mary 16 Known Daughter
Gazzeller (Gresella) 13 Known Daughter
Prudence 10 Known Daughter

Other Children:

    • Charlie died in 1850.
    • John William’s location in 1870 is unknown.
    • Isaac’s location in 1870 is unknown.
    • Nancy married Jessie Monroe Barnett in 1867.
    • Sarah Jane married Joseph Hatfield Bryant in 1869.

Enoch and Minerva are my 3rd great-grandparents—John William is my 2nd great-grandfather. 

Family 2 – Precinct 4, Post Office: Grayson, Page 11 – Tubil Mannan – Lines 1 to 9.

Mannan Family Age Relationship
Tubal 39 Head
Elizabeth 36 Known wife*
Mary 16 Inferred daughter
Martha 14 Inferred daughter
John 12 Known son
Vallandingham 8 Known son
James 6 Known son
Sarah 2 Known daughter

*  “Known” Relationships are based upon 1880 Census relationships.

Tubal was my 4th great uncle. He is the brother of Enoch Mannin.

Family 3 – Precinct 4, Post Office: Grayson, Page 14 – Martha Mannon – Lines 9-13

Mannon Family Age Relationship
Martha (née McGlothin) 33 Head
Artemisia (Artisma) 8 Apparent Daughter
Martin 7 Apparent Son
Lewis 4 Apparent Son
Rachel 2 Apparent Daughter

Martha’s husband, John, died on 20 June 1870. John is my 4th great uncle (brother of Enoch).

Family 4 – Precinct 4, Post Office: Grayson, Page 14 – James Mannon – Lines 14-19

Mannon Family Age Relationship
James 32 Head
Clarinda 28 Apparent wife
Rose 6 Apparent daughter
Elmus 4 Apparent son
Josephine 3 Apparent daughter
Lina 9/12 Apparent daughter

James Mannon (Mannin) is (probably) my half 1st cousin 5x removed. I believe his father is Tubal Mannin (b. 1800) and his grandmother Catherine Barnett (1782-1840). It appears that Catherine Barnett married two brothers, Meredith and John Bosel Mannin, Sr. (See follow-up below.)

Family 5 – Precinct 4, Post Office: Grayson, Page 14 – Meridith Mannon – Lines 20 to 24.

Mannon Family Age Relationship
Meridith 68 Head
Rhoda 14 Apparent granddaughter
Reuben 12 Apparent grandson
Elvina 10 Apparent granddaughter

This family entry is particularly confusing to me. I believe this is my 4th great-grandfather Meridith Mannin. Meridith’s wife, Rachel, died on 7 May 1870, so his being sans wife fits. The three children are the proper ages to be Meridith’s grandchildren.

Meredith & Rachel had 12 children. Their son, Rueben Calloway (1831-1859), died in 1870. In the 1870 Census, Precinct 3, Page 1, 67-year-old Meridith lives in the same household with Jane Richardson, her apparent husband, James, and three children, Rachel, James, and William. Also in the same family are 15-year-old Rubin and 13-year-old Evaline Tapp.

In Precinct 4, Page 14 is Meridith Mannin with 14-year-old Rhoda, 12-year-old Reubin, and ten-year-old Evaline. James and Sarah Richardson live next door with their three children, Rachel, James, & Willie. I have no doubt this is the same household enumerated twice – one with the surname Mannon and one with the surname Tapp for Meridith’s grandchildren, Rhoda, Reuben, and Evaline.

It isn’t clear to me who the mother of Reuben’s three children was. My records suggest Evaline Tapp was their mother. However, Reuben also (probably) had a wife named Sarah Shuts and may have had another wife, Louisa. See the follow-up below.

Family 6 – Precinct 4, Post Office: Grayson, Page 14 – James Mannon – Lines 14-19

Mannen Family Age Relationship
Thomas 43 Head
Rachel 31 Known wife*
Merideth 16
Sarah 13
John 11 Known son*
Samuel 9 Known son*
Mary 7 Known daughter*
Zackaria 5 Known son*

*  “Known” Relationships are based upon 1880 Census relationships.

Thomas is my 4th great uncle. He is the brother of Enoch Mannin.

Not found during the 1870 Census in Carter County.

During the 1880 Census, William C. and Martha E. Manning lived in Carter County. During the 1870 Census, they are found, with their son Alvin, in Callensville(?), Pendleton County, Kentucky, about 100 miles west of Grayson.

During the 1880 Census, Merideth A. Mannin was enumerated in Carter County. He would have been about 14 during the 1870 Census. I have not found him in any of the other Mannin families in Carter County.

My relationships with William C Mannin and Merideth A Mannin are unknown.

Further Research

    1. In Part 4, I’ll look at Mannan/Mannen/Mannin(g)s in the 1860 Census in Carter County, Kentucky.
    2. In Part 5, I’ll look at Mannan/Mannen/Mannin(g)s in the 1850 Census in Carter County
    3. It appears that Catherine Barnett married two brothers, Meredith and John Bosel Mannin, Sr. In Part 6, I research that connection closer.
    4. It appears that Reuben Calloway Mannin was married twice and had three children. Marriage information for him and Sarah Shuts, Evaline Tapp, and Louisa (LNU) isn’t clear. Also, the ages and surnames of the three children aren’t apparent either. Who is the mother of Reuben’s three children, Rhoda, Reuben, and Evaline? In Part 7, I’ll try to clarify these relationships and surnames.

 

Fugate – Surname Saturday

Brown-Mannin-Fugate Line
By Don Taylor

Photo of Don Taylor with cat Nasi.Ancestry indicates that Fugate is most probably a variant of Fugett. Fugett is perhaps an adaption of Fuget, a topographic name from Fuge, a regional term for fougère ‘fern.’ Neither Forebears nor Genealogy Bank have a meaning for the name either.

Geographical

According to Forebears, nearly 98% of the World’s Fugates live in the United States. In the United States, the largest incidence and percentage of the population is in Kentucky. The state where my most recent Fugate ancestors lived.

Direct Fugate Ancestors

    • 4th Great-grandmother:  105.  Rachel Fugate (1803-1870)
    • 5th Great-grandfather:    210.  Reuben Fugate (c1783-1833)*[i]
    • 6th Great-grandfather:    420.  Josiah Fugate (1740-1823)*
    • 7th Great-grandfather:    840  Randolph Fugate (1715-1776)*
    • 8th Great-grandfather:    1680.  Josias Fugate (___-c. 1757)*
    • 9th Great-grandfather:   3360.  Peter Fugate (1650-c. 1695)*
    • 10th Great-grandfather: 6720.  James Fugate (1630-1651)*

Historical

1840 – In 1840, Rachel had already married Meridith Mannin and had that surname. Her father, Reuben, died in Ralls, Missouri, in 1833; her grandparents had passed also. So, none of my Fugate ancestors were Fugates in 1840.

1650-1675 – Peter Fugate was born in France c. 1650. He died in Maryland sometime after 1695. He married Frances Mould about 1675 in Mosquito Creek, Baltimore County (now Harford County), Province of Maryland. Peter was my Immigrant Ancestor on this line.

Today

2014 – Snapshot in Time (Forebears)

Today, Fugates are mainly in the midsection of the United States, with nearly a third of them living in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana.

Direct Descendants

I have 1187 known descendants of James Fugate in my tree; 111 Mannin/Mannings, 69 Browns, 60 Bryants, 48 Fugates, 43 Barnetts, 28 Horns; 22 Richmonds; 21 Osts, 20 Taylors, and many other surnames. One thousand eighty-six of those descendants are known descendants of Rachel Fugate. I have previously written about 4 of them:

Famous Fugates

The Fugates of Kentucky, commonly known as the “Blue Fugates,” are notable for having been carriers of a genetic trait that led to the blood disorder methemoglobinemia, which causes the appearance of blue-tinged skin.[ii]

I have not found any relationship between my Fugate ancestors and the “Blue Fugates.”

Manning Deep Dive – Part 2

Mannin(g)’s in Carter County during the 1880 Census.

Census Sunday
Brown-Mannin(g) Line
By Don Taylor

The first step in doing a Deep Dive is to confirm the use of my initial sources. The first items to review are items in Family Search for Carter County, including Biographies. It included a Book, Heritage of Carter County, Kentucky. I had not reviewed it. Also, it doesn’t appear to be available online. I contacted the Carter County Historical and Genealogical Society to see if they do lookups.

Next, there are four items under Cemeteries. None of the items listed there appear to be available remotely. However, I did look at Find-a-Grave and found several confusing and erroneous entries in the memorials. I hope that Census Records might help clear up some of my questions regarding those family units. I’ll return to it after I look at the Census records and Vital Records.

Third, are the US Census Records. Starting at the most recent and working back from the 1880 Census.

I confirmed all Mannin’s in Carter County during the 1880 Census are in my database, and all appropriate facts are identified. However, there are two Mannin families, Merideth and William C., in the 1880 Census that I do not know how they relate to me. I suspect I’ll be able to determine that relationship when I review the 1870 and 1860 Censuses.


Endnotes

[i] In terms of indexing, Enoch and Manerva [sic] were enumerated without relationship to subsequent individuals but were listed as in the same household. From other research, I know that Enoch and Minerva were the parents of Isaac Mannin.
