First Settlers and Other Families (part two) I - P (in the process of being updated)

Again, this is a short list of family information.  There are other families mentioned in the early settler records, so if I do not mention a family's names it just means I have little or no information.


  This family came to the Greenbrier and Monroe area around 1770.  Mathias, Andrew, Sr., and Andrew Jr. were involved in the battle at Point Pleasant.  Mathias's heirs:  Andrew, Mathias, Mary, Jacob, Susanna, Michael, Elizabeth, and Anne who intermarried with the Mann, Maddy, Ballard, Parsons, Fulton, and Halstead families.


  From what many researches say, the Mann family is German (originally Monn).  I've stitched together information from numerous sources.  There's lots more on this family.

   George Bernhardt Mann immigrated from Germany and settled first in Pennsylvania.

   William Mann was a Sergeant at Fort Young in 1759 in Covington, VA.  He was a hunter and trader.  His wife's name was Jean, and Children:  Moses, Thomas William, John, Catie, Jenny, Sarah, Alice, and Archibald.

    John Mann, Jr. a son of John Jacob Mann and grandson of George B. Mann acquired land on the James, Jackson and Cowpasture Rivers from 1750 to 1778.  Later he moved to Monroe County and settled in the area of Indian Creek (present day Summers County).

   His wife's name was Mary Kessinger.



   Jacob Pence was from Rockingham County and was in the Augusta Co. VA militia during the R.W.  He lived in Monroe County and married Elizabeth Trust.  They had three sons:  Henry, David and Moses.  One son married Nancy Stodghhill.
