    I know you are very busy and have a schedule. I was very curious where the name Mannering came from since I had never heard it before. I figured it was a maiden name. I found James Brookshire b 1690 married Sarah Mannering, date prior to 1730. You probably already knew this.

    Hi Liz!

    Nancy Emeline Brookshire married Robert Garrett. Their daughter Martha Jane Garrett married Reuben Phillip Johnson. Their daughter, Rachel Louisa Johnson married Newton Coleman Ward – these are my great-grandparents.

    I do know about Sarah Mannering and I’ve always assumed her name led to Mannering Brookshire’s name. It’s been awhile since I’ve worked that far back on this line, so I don’t have proof of this relationship yet.
