Robert Mann was my great-grandfather. He was born July 20,1857 in Lanark, Ontario. I am a descendent from Robert's son Arthur (my grandfather) who lived in Duncan, B.C. Are you a descendent of Alex and then Delisle who was my Dad's cousin?
My grandfather was Alexander Devereux Mann (Alex), born June 1, 1884 in Peterborough, and died August 9, 1952 in Palo Alto, California. My father was Robert Alexander Delisle Mann, born January 5, 1905 in Peterborough and died February 5, 1965 in San Francisco, CA. I've been trying to get information on my dad's family, but have been unsuccessful. I'm hoping we are related!
I do have more Mann information as Alexander Devereux Mann's siblings settled in British Columbia and I knew them all when I was younger.
Arthur Robert Mann born Sept.26,1886
Henderson McLellan Mann born June 1, 1888
Edward Axford Mann born Sept. 8,1889
Marjorie Belle Rutherford Mann born Nov. 28,1891
They were all born in Peterborough, Ontario
Thank you for the information. Anything else you can share would be appreciated. Do you have sister by the name of Olive? I remember Clara (Alex's 2nd wife) talking about her when she was born. My dad was the only child of Alex and his first wife, and I was also an only child, born February 17, 1945 in San Francisco. My mother was Dorothy Lillian (Olsson) Mann. I live in Fort Worth, Texas now. My name is Shirley Doris (Mann) Vanderford and my e-mail address is email@example.com. We visited B.C. a few times when I was a child, and then we went to a family reunion on Vancouver Island with my mother, probably about 30+ years ago.
