Vera Mann Scott 100th

This Christmas, Dec 25, 2014 marks the 100th birthday of Vera Mann--the anchor of this blog. I nearly forgot. In all of my research related to the Mann family of Massachusetts, I thought for sure I'd find a Mayflower connection, but recently discovered the connection comes through my father's side. HA Either branch puts us in Plymouth Colony. :-)

Vera's Lineage: Richard Man, Thomas Man, Ensign Mann, Ensign II, Ensign III, William, Horace, James

Born in Athol, MA, Vera died 13 May 1999 in Gresham, Oregon.
