Manilla Mamie Lesley Jones
Birth: Mar. 24, 1898
Nehalem
Tillamook County
Oregon, USA
Death: Jan. 22, 1966
Bend
Deschutes County
Oregon, USA

Born in Nehalem, Tillamook, Oregon, the daughter of Jasper Newton Lesley and Anna Mae (Jackson) Lesley; wife of Archie "Arch" J. Jones; mother of Virginia (Jones) Ramsay, Mollie (Jones) Jackson Knobloch, Ray Jones and Archie Ronald Jones and of infants Oscar and Donna Jones. Manilla taught school at Top School near Monument, Grant, Oregon when she was young. She and her husband had a small ranch called the "Circle Ranch" until Manilla contracted TB about 1939 and moved to Alfalfa, Deschutes, Oregon for about a year. Her children lived with family while she was in the Eastern Oregon TB Hospital in The Dalles, Oregon, from about 1940-1942 where she had 1 lung removed. After she became well, she and her husband Arch owned a second hand and shoe repair shop/store in Molalla, Clackamas, Oregon for a few years and then they were owners of The Prineville Exchange a second-hand store on North Main Street, Prineville, Crook, Oregon, for many years until Arch's death. She missed her husband of 49 years after his death and died 17 months later of cancer. Manilla was a loving mother and grandmother and we miss her so...

Named after the Battle of Manila Bay, The Phillipines, 1 May 1898 according to her mother, Anna Jackson Lesley. Possibly she wasn't named until sometime after her birth as was sometimes done.
