Re: Who were the parents of Ann Butler, wife of Luke Mann?
I too am trying to identify any direct male descendants of Luke Mann Sr. or sons Luke Jr. or Thomas Mann of Bryan/Liberty County GA. My research shows Luke Sr's father to be John Mann who came to GA before 1759.
My known ancestor, Daniel J. Mann maybe related to this family. Daniel J. Mann was born 1802 in GA (place and parents unknown) and can later be found in Bryan County - a record indicates January 1819.
I also have conducted Y-DNA research and have confirmed with another distant male cousin that Daniel J. Mann is haplogroup R-L21-DF13. My familytreedna kit# is 191494 and have tested to 111 STR markers.

thanks much as always,
