RE: Mrs M.A. Mann. aka - Mary Ann Francis DARLING / Hutto / Wadlington / Mann Her brother: Andrew J. DARLINGaka A.J. Darling / Andrew Jackson Darling Her mother or grandmother: Elethia / Elethea / Aleatha DARLING
I have found her in the 1870 Census Morehouse Parish Louisiana living with Price Wadlington.
Wadlington, Price age 35 born: Mississippi
Wadlington, Francis age 27 born: Mississippi(This is Mary Ann Francis Darling)
Wadlington, Andrew age 5 born: Louisiana ( This is Andrew Alfonzo Hutto) Wadlington, Francisage 3born: Louisiana ( This is Francis Steadman)
Darling, Eletheaage 70 born: Alabama
Darling Jane age 28
Notice Elethia or Elethea Darling- I wonder if that is Mary Mann's mother or evenPaternal Grandmother. Interesting.
Price Wadlington died in 1871.
In the 1880 Census Franklin County Texas I found her again.
(Thomas Louis Mann found in the 1850 Census Morehouse Parish Louisiana)
She was Married to Thomas L. Mann

I also have her living with Lee Roy and Susie Roy in the 1920 census Mt. Pleasant, Titus Co Texas.Age 72 years. Susie is Susanah Mann, her daugther.
She is buried in the Masonic Cemetery as: Mann Mary Ann January 22, 1845February 21, 1927 (Your great Granddaughter)Lee Roy is also buried there along with his daughter Bertie Leake and her husband Wilbur Leake.
I have also found that she applied for a widow's pension (Civil war - as the widow of T.L. Mann) Mar 25, 1925. she was denied.Her brother A.J. Darling of Honey Grove - Fannin Co, Tx signed an affidavit of witness for her.He is also known as Andrew J. Darling or Andrew Jackson Darling.
Susanah Mann Roy and Lee Roy were my great-great grandparents. Their daughter Bertie Lee Roy Leakeand husband Wilbur Leake aremy maternal grandmother Eva Nell Leake Shoaf's parents. Eva was born and raised in Mt. Pleasant.Eva grew upnext door to Lee and Susie and were very close to them. She was the oldest grandchild.
Anyone descended or have info on this family - please email me.
