Notes for Thomas J. Manning:
The 1900 census shows Thomas Manning aged 14 in the household of Jefferson Brewer and Mary A. Landreth... listed as a 'nephew'

Also in the household is Christopher 'Landers' born Jan 1826 as the 'father in law' -- so this is Thomas Manning's grandfather. Landers is no doubt Landreth as in this census from 1880 which shows Thomas Manning's mother Nancy J. Landreth born in 1860
