There must be connections with these Manleys:
Thomas Manley, sexton of Evergreen Cemetery, Menomonie, was born in county Fermanagh, Ireland, in 1836. He came to America when fifteen years of age. His parents, John and Mary Manley, resided in Ireland till their death. Mr. Manley first went to Galena, Illinois, where he began learning the trade of wagon-making. He came to Menomonie in September 1855, and was employed by K., S. & Co. During the war he was employed aboard a transport vessel for some time. He was married in Illlinois to Margaret Murphy, native of that State. Returned to Menomonie and went to work for the company again, by whom he has been employed most of the time since. Has been sexton of Evergreen Cemetery since 1877. They have four children, two sons and two daughters.
