Thomas M. Mann Males 0-5(1), 20-30(1); females 0-5(1), 20-30(1)

As neither Augustus nor Thomas have boys of Americus' age, he is probably the son of William B. Mann who was likely deceased prior to 1840, and certainly by 1856.All the online tree showing William B. Mann and Lucy Broadnax as Americus' parents have William dying in 1895 - so this is not likely to be the correct William.
Joseph Mann died in Sept 1879/80, Sumter Co. at age 59 and said wasb. GA, father b. VA, Mother b. VA
Americus' grandparents were likely - Likely John Mann b. 1785 VA d. 1837 Sumter GA and Elizabeth B. Brooking(s) b. ~1888 VA d. 1856 Sumter GA.They were married in Amelia, VA June 20, 1805.I believe the family migrated to Hancock Co GA ca 1812-1820+ and on to Lee/Sumter Counties when the land lottery opened the area up.
I only find a couple of references to your Americus after the 1850 census.

The Manns in Sumter County seem to have had a lot of slaves, so there may be more records in the Sumter Co. Archives-if the courthouse survived.Land records may provide the best confirmation of Elizabeth's husband.
