Search For Manning Family - a Memory of Alderton.
August 3, 2006
Greetings from Las Vegas!
I am George Lear, currently living in Las Vegas. I am hopng to hear from anyone related to my grandmother.
My Grandmother was Rose Alice Manning and was born in Alderton in 1894 or 1896.
Her father was Charles Manning, a gamekeeper. Her mother was Polly Webb Manning.
She emigrated to America when she was quite young- I think she was about 16 or 17 years old and joined a sister already living in North Dakota, Eliza Manning Dunn.
My grandmother married a Canadian, Roy James McHaney from Southampton, Ontario. Also, she had an older brother who left England when she was still a child and settled in New Westminister, British Columbia.
My grandparents lived in Lansing, Michigan for some years and relocated to the Downriver suburbs of Detroit during the Great Depression. I was born in Detroit in
I was quite influenced by my Grandmother's English characteristics, especially her love of nature, birds and dogs. She passed away in 1970.
I would love to hear from anyone with knowledge of the Manning family. I have a few interesting old photos I will send soon.
Best wishes and thank you for your interest,
