Mr. Manes was born near Elizabeth, Allegheny county, in 1798, and lived there until 1839, when he moved with his family to North Strabane where he lived on the same farm until hsi deaht. He was a man of temperate habits and enjoyed the best of health all his life, and was never confined to his bed until his recent illness, which was caused by old age, and which resulted in his death.
