Thank for the response. Appears we both had Manuels on our brains last night.I wason line about the same time you were responding to my e-mail.
I have similiar information to yours except that Clemont, Shafter, Leslie, Levi, Alice and Bertie--my mom--are children of Alonzo Manuel (Sallie Winn), son of Michael Alvin Manuel and Anna Eliza Brewington.I know all of the off spring of Alonzo and Sallie.In fact, we have a family renuion scheduled in August.Page's offspring also participate.
Michael and Anna's children were:Jewel, who moved to Leesburg, Fla; Eliccie, Alonza/Alonzo, my grandfather; Lucian (I know more about him); Ashley who also moved to Leesburg; Reuben (I don't remember what mom told me about him; Celesital, who married a Simmons, they have offspring here in Goldsboro; Wiley Page--whose grandchildren are Smiths and live in Goldsboro, Charlotte, Raleigh etc.
My research etc. follows the same line as yours:
Michael Alvin – Anna E. (1837),--as above.He taught school, I know a cousin who has his old Bible.I was able to take pictures of some of the pages with my digital camera.Some pages from an old teacher's manual were folded in the Bible.I sure could have used those pages when I was learning how to diagram sentences. (smiles).I was allowed to borrow them and scanned them into my computer.
Mike (Michale) Manuel –Pharby Hardin (1787),--They were parents of my maternal great great grandfather Michael Alvin; Tempy Jane who married Archibald Jacobs--they are my paternal great, great grandparents; Enoch Manuel who wrote a booklet Sketch of the classified Indians of Sampson Co. North Carolina which I would love to get my hands on.Based on my research last night, it appears that there may be a copy At Appalachian State University.I plan to call their library tommorow to see if they indeed have it.I have a picture of Enoch and his wife which my mom had.I show him (age 34) married to Sarah E. (age 27) with four of their children being:Herbert, Jonah, Enoch and Sarah E. in the 1880 census and another four in the 1900 census:Macie, Lizzie, Levanda, and Luther--Enoch is now 54 and Sarah E is age 46--by this time Enoch, Jr. is 22 yrs old and married to ??Doshie also age 22 living together in the Dismal Township
Nicholas ‘Nickey’ Manuel – Mildred 'Millie' Hale may also be Margaret (1755)He fought in the Revolutionary War.I have a copy of Milly's request for his pension foundon the internet.
Ephraim Emanuel – Emelia (1725),
Nicholas Manuel – Mahala (Mahalie) (1695)
My desire is to fill in all the gaps I can.Where do you fit in this line?Do you have my e-mail address?If not, use firstname.lastname@example.org and perhaps we can exchange more information.
