Up-date contributed March 29, 2002 by Mary-jo Hall:
Myrtle, I was searching for John A McMannen and found the McAllister
history on your site. It states that Janet McAlister married Dr. John A
McMannen. ··· Janet married Dr. LeRoy Dewitt
McMannen, son of Rev. John A McMannen (or Orange County, NC). The part
where they separated fits because Leroy and Rosa are list in the 1870
census living with his parents in Durham. How can I find out where Janet
is buried. Leroy is buried at Maplewood Cemetery in Durham. He served
as an assistant surgeon in the War, first with NC Troops then with 24th
Georgia, the medical unit.
