The above MANKIN family line was known to fit in someplace with the descendants of STEPHEN MANKIN of Port Tobacco, and the connection has been said to be Charles Mankin b.1778, son of Charles County High Sheriff Charles Mankin of Port Tobacco, MD. In family records, Mrs. George A. Schelhorn speaks of her "cousins" who were thought to be grandchildren of Benjamin Arthur Mankin and Catherine French, but now seem to be children of Charles Mankin b.1778 according to his recorded apprenticeship papers (and not as once formerly thought to be the son of Ensign Richard Tubman Mankin, Jr. who died in 1815, but that of course provedto be incorrect since the last child of his was born in 1819). The information was copied from a family Bible in the possession of Mr. Marvin DeMaine, 1108 Virginia Ave SW, Washington, DC. The Family Bible of WILLIAM and DORCAS MANKIN was in the possession of Mrs George Schelhorn Sr (Minnie May Mankin) who lived at 212 Park Road, Alexandria, VA. The records of this family have been extracted from the old Bible. It was published in 1839 by Robinson & Franklin Co., of New York. Minnie May Mankin was the daughter of Charles Mankin Jr, granddaughter of Charles Mankin, and consequently great granddaughter of William Charles Mankin and Dorcas Martin Cocke.
