Hello! Although I am not a McManus, I was drawn to this site when trying to gain information about my name-McGathey. It seems that our kin were married 9-24-1865. They were William McGathey and Rebecca McManus and had nine children. They were Jesse, Mary, Pearle, Asbury, Nora, John, Victoria, Ida Mae, and Sylvester. If anyone is familiar with this line please feel free to respond. Best wishes, Jay McGathey

My name is Allan Mcmanus I live in Scotland , wonder if anyone has history of McManus in Scotland.

In 1813 he was licensed to practice law in Kentucky, and in the same year, he served a tour of duty, for six months, in the Kentucky militia, on our northern frontier.--At the expiration of his term, on his way to Kentucky, he stopped with his cousins, the Reed brothers, on Anderson's Fork, where he remained several months. In 1814 he settled in Wilmington, and at the May term, 1814, of the Supreme Court of Ohio, he was licensed to practice law. On August 19, 1819, he was married to Rachel McManis, daughter of Judge George McManis, of Clinton County. In 1819, he was elected a Justice of the Peace, for Union Township, and was reelected for two successive terms of three years each. ---End---

Rachel married Daniel Radcliff(e) about whom the above biography was written. They probably met in Clinton Co., Ohio.

Daughter of William P. Mc Manus. He was born in Bismarck, North Dakota. Son of Georgina Fouratte, and John Mc Manus. If there is anyone related to him-me. lol please feel free to write me a line, or two. ;-)

Does anyone know about the McManus family from Norwalk, Huron County, Ohio? My father was an orphan with a purple birthmark on his right eye and cheek. Herbert Francis McManus DOB 9-29-02 St Vincent Orphanage aka St. Anthony Villa. Toledo, Ohio. He would be 101 this year and we have never been able to find any family. Any help would be relished. Thank you for letting me view your family. Aggie

Hi. Checking out this site. I find it interesting that I have so many relatives. Some I knew of, and some I didn't. E-mail me if you think you might be related to me. My mother was a McManis from Dundas, Ohio. Bye for now.
