Unsolved Mysteries

Every researcher comes across some names in their research, which puzzle the researcher. They may have been one of their children’s sponsors?  Enumerated with them on the census?  Came up in a discussion with relative?...etc? How was this person relevant to the family?  In some cases, following these mysterious people have uncovered a bundle of genealogical information, I would not otherwise have found.

Then we always have the unknown individual who shows up in our ancestor’s life.

MANNING clan - Place of Origin Mystery

 

My biggest unsolved mystery is where did the Manning family originate from. – some say Kerry – some say Cork – but where is the proof???  Checked the Mallow Heritage center and found no hits.

What do I know: 5 siblings arrived in Boston at different times

1.        Johanna Manning (1828 – 1903)

§  Immigrated before 1869 – possibly with brother Dennis and John

§  Single never married

§  Bought a deed for cemetery November 30 1868 in Calvary Cemetery where she and her sister are buried

§  Made out a will leaving everything to Anna Manning

§  Jan 22 1903 Johanna Manning Female, Single age 75 lived at 3379 Washington St, burined in Calvary, born in Ireland - parents John Manning/Ellen Quarm both born in Ireland – died of Chronic Bronchitis Senility for 3 weeks

§  Resided   1868 - 1902 3379 Washington St, Jamaica Plains

2.        Dennis Manning (1831 – 1868)

·         Name: Denis Manning Arrival Date: 30 Apr 1866 Age: 26 years Estimated Birth Year: abt 1840 Gender: Male Port of Departure: Queenstown, Ireland and Liverpool, England Ship Name: Bosphorus Port of Arrival: Boston, MA – he arrived with John age 25 and ? age 28

§   is noted on Johanna Mannings headstone of dying in 1869

§  1868 Dennis Manning Male, Single age 30  lived at 90 Cove St; Laborer born in Ireland - parents John /Ellen both born in Ireland – died of Phithis

§  No body is buried in the plot according to the cemetery

§  Resided

·         1868         90 Cove St. Boston, MA

§  Death record of Dennis Manning living at 90 Cove St who died in  Nov 28, 1868 in Boston.– age 30 male single, born in Ireland, Laborer -  died of Phithis – parents John and Ellen Manning

3.        John Manning (1832 – 1888)

·         Immigrated possibly with brother Dennis Arrival Date: 30 Apr 1866 Age: 26 years Estimated Birth Year: abt 1840 Gender: Male Port of Departure: Queenstown, Ireland and Liverpool, England Ship Name: Bosphorus Port of Arrival: Boston, MA – he arrived with Denis and ? age 28

§  Married his wife Eliza McCann in Boston  in 1873 in Boston  - sponsors were David Walsh and Mary A O’Brien

·         April 21 John Manning living in Boston age 30 Laborer born in Ireland father John mother Ellen

·         Elizabeth McCann living in Boston age 29 born in Fredicton NB father Arthur mother Margaret – married by J Conlon of Boston

§  Eliza Manning's claims to have entered the US in 1865 and was never naturalized.  We can find Elizabeth in 1851 in New Brunswick, but not 1861. In 1870 Eliza McCann, age 30 of Nova Scotia, is living with an importer named William Perkins and his family.  They identify her as one of 3 domestic servants.  In the 1920. Eliza Manning claims to have not been naturalized – which means her husband was probably not naturalized.

§  John died in 1888 of Phthisis (tuberculosis), at the age of 56, leaving his widow to raise their two children his death certificate reads as follows:

·         1888 John Manning Male, married age 40 lived at 281 W Fourth St, born in Ireland - parents John /Ellen both born in Ireland – died of Phithisis - Laborer

§  Resided

·         1887-1898 277 or 281 W. Fourth St Boston

·         1899 - 1901 593 E. Fifth St, Boston, MA

·         1905-1925 133 M. St, Boston, MA

4.        Anna Manning (1838 – 1908)

§  immigrated the 1860s – single never married

§  Also known as Nancy and Anne Manning

§  Ann Manning was the younger sister who migrated to Boston.  As mentioned earlier she was single and worked as a laundress with her sister Johanna.  According to her great niece, Ann worked for the Wild family in West Roxbury.  After Johanna's death, Ann moved in with her sister-in-law Elizabeth Manning until her death in 1908.

§  made out a will leaving everything to her 2 nephews John Manning and 2 nieces Ellen Donahoe and Ellen Keaney

§  Sept 26 1908 Ann Manning Female, Single age 70 lived at 3379 Washington St, buried in Old Calvary, born in Ireland - parents John Manning/Ellen Cohane both born in Ireland – died of Cerebral Hemorrhage 3 months – Areterio Sclerosis – undertaker James F O’Donnell in Lowell

§  Resided   1868 - 1908 3379 Washington St, Jamaica Plains

5.        Jeremiah Manning (1840 – 1896)

·         He and his wife Margaret Cronin immigrated to US about 1872 with their son John from England - Name: Margaret Manning Arrival Date: 21 Jun 1870 Age: 38 years Estimated Birth Year: abt 1832 Gender: Female Port of Departure: Liverpool, England Ship Name: Tarifa Port of Arrival: Boston, MA – A Jerry age 40 and child age 1 also listed.

·         John L Manning’s Naturalization record indicates he immigrated in June 1870 to Boston.  But this Jerry Manning listed his place of birth as Scotland, not Ireland. 

§  There appears to be another Jeremiah Manning known as Jeremiah P Manning and wife Margaret J.  They lived at 302 Harrison Ave – Boston at the same time and had a number of children.

§  A Jerimiah Manning became an American citizen on September 16, 1872.  On this document, they list Jerimiah's occupation as liquor dealer. Upon checking the city directories I can confirm that this was indeed a different Jerimiah MANNING than my ancestor.  

§  Ellen Frances Manning was baptized on Apr 9 1873 at St James the Greater in Boston – god parents were Jeremiah Ryan and Mary Lenehen  (in 1870 there was a Jeremiah Ryan living at the same place)

§  Jeremiah’s youngest son Jeremiah was baptized Sept 21 1878 at St James the Greater – sponsors were Jacabus Dusey and Anna Sullivan

§  Mar 29 1896 Jeremiah Manning Male, married age 60 years 11 months lived at 31 Albany St, born in Ireland - parents John Manning both born in Ireland – died of Myocarditis

§  Resided

·         1873-1891         90 Cove St. Boston, MA

·         1893-1895         171 Kneeland St

·         1896 - 1899       31 Albany St, Boston, MA

·         1900                   160 West Fourth St. Boston, MA

§  John Manning – son of Jeremiah and Margaret was born in England

·         Oral history says he was a twin born on the trip over  - I did locate a birth record in Boston MA which logs his birth. Volume/Page/Certificate Number: Volume 3 p 48 1870

·         John’s 1900 census says he was Naturalized Name:  John L. Manning (Signature) Date:  October 24, 1892 Address:  44 Tyler St. Age:  22 Place of Birth:  London, Eng. Occupation:  Clerk Date and Court of Naturalization:  Oct. 24, 1892  (Photo copy in records) -

·         John’s marriage records states he was baptized in London Feb 6 1870 – sponsors at marriage are William Cassidy and Margaret Saunders

·         From a researcher online I found : Greater London births between 1868 and 1872 - all would appear to be in the right "Quarter" for January/February births; 2 in the right year.....

2.        Births March Quarter 1868

3.       Through the 4 children’s death records I have noted their parents being John and Ellen – mother’s maiden name was listed as Cohane and another one had it as Quarm.

4.       Oral history states that Ellen Manning Donahoe received a letter from the church in Ireland requesting what to do with land the family owned.  According to oral history it was given to the church as there were no other family members remaining in Ireland.

5.       The family is Catholic

6.       Distribution of Manning surname from Griffiths Valuation

7.       Cross check of Manning and Cronin from Griffiths’ Valuation

8.       There was a John and Ellen Manning buried in Holyhood Cemetery – It is not a relative with my Manning family.  The inscriptions says: In memory of our Father & Mother John & Ellen MANNING   Both departed this life Dec 15 1874               Father 82 yrs ~ Mother 72 yrs [?]     Natives of [Summuy], Parish of Rach[?], Co. Cork, Ireland May their souls rest in peace. Amen

Checking the death record it lists Ellen O’Brien Manning (72) and her husband John Manning (82) of 31 Clark St Boston

MANNING, ALICE - In chatting with Anna Carleton, she recalls a few people who claimed to be relatives to her.  Other than this conversation, I have no proof that they are related.  It is quite possible that other Manning cousins migrated over to Boston before, after or about the same time.

Alice Manning was born June 28, 1893 in Boston.  She died in May 1979.  She was single and worked as a teacher.  She was buried in Malden in Holycross cemetery.  Alice was from a large family.  Anna recalls a brother Fred.  Fred had a daughter Ann who married someone named Charles.  Charles was a retired Army officer.  He adopted a whole family from Vietnam.  They since have moved to Tennessee.

Checking her birth record, she is the daughter of Daniel and Mary Manning of Boston, residing at 133 Marcella St. in Boston
Checking the cemetery records in Malden we find the following individuals buried with Alice:

  1. Catherine Dowd 1902, Irene Manning 1906,John Dowd 1909, Charles Dowd 1918, John G Manning 1920, Mary J Manning 1943, Dennis J Manning 1958
  • MANNING, ELLEN T - Anna Carleton also recalls an Ellen Manning who worked with her at the Telephone Company.  She lived on 3rd St in South Boston.  Ellen was also a single woman.  She was told that they were relatives.

She was born April 10 1899 and died Sep 2 1987 in Boston. She is buried in Calvary Cemetery with a number of other Manning’s.  Buried with her are Margaret Manning (d. 1905 age 9), Nellie M. Manning (d. 1911 age 43), William F Manning (d. 1924 age 62), William F Manning, Jr. (D1956 age 50), Adelaide J. Manning (d 1982 age 84), Veronica Manning (d. 1987 age86), Lillian Manning (d. 1990 age 86).

Tracing this Ellen Manning we find her in 1900, and 1920 census with her family.

William F. Manning was a boilermaker until about 1889 when he entered the Boston police.  His naturalization record was found.  Patrick Manning witnessed it.  Could this be his father?  Although there was a Patrick Manning who lived next door to him in 1880, possibly an older brother.

William F Manning - boilermaker, born in County Galway March 17 1860, immigrated May 9 1868 to Boston.  He was naturalized October 2, 1883.  Witness Simon Joyce of 61 Gold St, Patrick Manning 15 A St.  He married Nellie M Murphy on September 21, 1893.  His parents are listed as Patrick and Margaret Manning.  William was 32 and his bride was 23.  Reverend M. F. Murphy of Boston married them.  Checking the wills of William and his son, we find a few more facts relating to this family.  His eldest daughter Mildred became legal guardian to the youngest 3 children.  She eventually married someone named Plansky and died in the 1980’s.
