Norman Manley
Hi Cheryl, I live in Decatur GA and I have a collection of photos, greeting cards and other things I found in my attic a while ago. I have reason to believe that the man featured in most of the photos is Norman Manley, son of E.S. and Elizabeth, and brother to Emory, Frances and William. I found you through a search on Family and see that you are connected to this family. Please let me know if you are indeed connected, and if you would like further information about the photos. peace, Chuck

Boyd or Royce Manley
Cheryl, You may or may not be able to clear up something for me. The above named child/young adult. Who does he belong to in the Manley family? I thought he was James Adolphus Manley & Mary Jane Herndon son. Not sure why he was not mentioned or noted to be in that family. Thank You

RE: Manley Family

I am so sorry. I don't know if I ever replied to this message. I've not had access to findagrave for so long as I had lost the login information. I don't believe I got anything in my inbox or spam, but I do have over 10,000 emails in each box. it's going to take me a while to get through them.

RE: John Martin White
I sent my email address in my first reply. I have JF Morris's father as Eppy White Morris m. Eliza Turman, then Eppy White Morris's father as John Martin Morris m. Sarah Franklin White, so as far as I know, I only have a White connection on a maternal side. Since DNA testing was on the Y-chromosome, which is father-to-son, Sarah Franklin White would not explain the DNA results. I was struck by the similarity between in first / middle names between John Martin Morris and John Martin White (Sarah Franklin White's father). But that could just be a co-incidence.

John Martin White
Hi Cheryl, you left the following note on the gravesite page for John Franklin Morris:

Fought with Co. B, 15th Ga Infantry CSA "The Tugalo Blues". Great grandson of Capt. John Martin White, Revolutionary War, Spotsylvania, VA. Rest in peace, brave soldier.

I am a great-grandson of JF Morris. In my tree on, I have JF Morris's great-grandfather as John Martin Morris. But above you have John Martin White. I have had genetic testing done at FTDNA, and my closest male relative genetically is a White (other than my own siblings), but I have never been able to find a historical connection with the Whites on my paternal side. I would love to know where you got your information. The mystery is how White turned into Morris. Adoption, maybe? I have been in touch with the current generation of Whites, and you might be able to solve what to us is a great mystery.

William R Manley (1862-1939)
I have been rechecking William D. Manley (1862-1942) and William R Manley (1862-1939).

I found a South Carolina death certificate for William R Manley: Born 18Jan1862 and died 27Nov1939. His death certificate lists his parents as Benjamin Manley and Fannie May; spouse as Mary Cary.

There is not a death certificate available through for William D Manley. I tried to order a death cert. but Georgia is more strict with access.

So I now have two William Manleys listed as children of Benjamin Manley and Frances May.

William D Manley (1862-1942)
I had the wrong person listed as a son of Benjamin Franklin Manley (1831-1917.

Do you know who the parents are of a William R Manley (1862-1939)?

I had sent a request to have his Find A Grave updated to list his parents at Ben Frank and Fannie May. I sent a request to have that removed.

Here is the ancestry info I have for him:
William R Manley (1862-1939) Find A Grave Memorial# 15776143
Spouse: Mary Ellen Carey Manley (1870-1935) Find A Grave # 15776147

Was C. J. Manley first married to Mary Louise Martin & was she by chance a sister to Maude Martin?
My husband is a Kesler/Martin desc. & I've been working on this line for years.
BTW, I grew up in carnesville & I knew Miss Edna WELL!
She was a good friend of my parents.

RE: Jesse Holbrook
I descend from the daughter of Jesse Holbrook and Susannah Manley, Frances Holbrook Mullican. My sister and I have DNA matches with descendants of Pleasant Holbrook, John Douglas Holbrook, and Sarah Holbrook. If you want to compare information, contact me by e-mail at Also, I wondered why the U.S. Veterans Gravesite records show Jesse Holbrook is buried in the Holbrook Family Cemetery in Carnesville, GA. Is this findagrave record a burial site or a centograph?

Hi, Cheryl, My name is Ron (George Ronald) Manley. I wish I had started this earlier. I would appreciate any help you could give me, and would be glad to compensate you for any cost. You posted several photos of graves in East View Cemetery in East Atlanta, DeKalb County, with the name Manley. These are my Great Grand Parents and Great Uncles. I added some photos and will add more. I hope to hear from you and thank you for what you have done.

Russell Blackwell
I am a descendant of William and Jerusha Blackwell through their Son, Russell. I am applying for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution and have documented all of my line ancestors except Russell - I need proof that he is the son of William and Jerusha. You mentioned Bible records. If you have the
Bible showing that Russell was their son, and could send me a copy of the title/publication page and the family page I would reimburse you for copying and postage costs. Thank you.

RE: Pleasant Cicero Holbrook
positive,The dates co-encide,Mother's maiden name Harber or Harbor,And he's the only one buried at Carnesville with these dates.I'm going back today to make sure I have photographed all the headstons there,many are un-transcribed.And not to mention they were crummy spellers back then even in the 1930's Pleasant's father could have had Jesse/Jessie in his name.The death certificate numbers match up also.

I haven't done much research on the Holbrook's. Fred Jackson Holbrook is my biological father and he is from Toccoa, GA. My uncle, George (Bud) Holbrook still resides in Toccoa. My grandparents were George & Beulah (Rudisill)Holbrook.
I remember going to family reunions and Aunt Bell threatening anyone who ever researched our family history! One day....I'll attempt it. ;-)
Aunt Bell is still alive!
