Sibling Saturday - William B. Mann

Several of my direct ancestors' siblings never married or some did but didn't have children.  They have no direct descendants.  I want to give them their 15 minutes here once in a while on Sibling Saturdays. 

William B. Mann was the brother of my Great Grandfather Clarence Mann.  

William B. and his wife Eliza are buried in the Evergreen Home Cemetery in Beatrice. This is their plot, but they have no markers.  They had no children.  On April 7, 1892, they were married in Gage County.  He died at age 58 in Goodland, Kansas April 27, 1927.   She lived to be 80 and died in Beloit, Kansas January 8, 1946.

EDIT 10/30/14 - I'm glad to say I'm wrong about their not having any markers in the cemetery.  Photos of them have been posted on their findagrave memorials.  I must have been in the wrong section or grass has grown over them, but they are there.


  1. I'm glad you decided to take the plunge and start writing about your family. I'm new to blogging and very techni-challenged, but I enjoy telling my family's stories, too. Maybe someday, someone will even read some of them!

    1. Thank you for reading mine! I know what you mean - just hope they are getting read. I haven't figured out everything yet either - Google Plus, how to make some changes to my page, etc, but that will come in time. I'm going to find your blog now. No one will know your stories unless you tell them!

  2. Laura,

    Congrats on your "May I Introduce To You" write up on GeneaBloggers. It was wonderful!
