I am writing a short biography of Henry McManus or MacManus from Virginia, co. Cavan, for the forthcoming Dictionary of Irish Biography. He became a Presbyterian minister, and was sent as a missionary to the west of Ireland, where his ability to speak Irish was very useful. I have nothing much on his family background at the moment; though I am at an early stage of research. Can anyone help?
I an sure Henry MacManus is no relation, but I am also interested in McManuses from co. Fermanagh and possibly north Cavan, who are ancestors of my husband. They are from the parish of Teemore; any other descendants anywhere?
