The marriage of Rufus Manion and Mary Alice Gray took place in Jackson County, Missouri on 21 September, 1870.

The 1880 Census shows the family thus:
Washington Township, Jackson, Missouri, Page 242C
Rufus MANION Self M M W 33 MO Occ: Farming Fa: KY Mo: TN
Alice MANION Wife F M W 25 MO Occ: Housekeeping Fa: VA Mo: VA
William W. MANION Son M S W 6 MO Fa: MO Mo: MO
Cora B. MANION Dau F S W 5 MO Fa: MO Mo: MO
Sybil L. MANION Dau F S W 3 TX Fa: MO Mo: MO
Rufus E. MANION Son M S W 1 MO Fa: MO Mo: MO

The 1920 census of Amarillo, TX shows a Rufus Manion (age 72) with wife Fannie C., so this must be either a second marriage for Rufus or a remarkable coincidence since Rufus had a brother Charles who is also enumerated in the household in this census.

I am researching the Manions, particularly anything about Rufus' parents who appear to be James Manion (b.KY) and Elizabeth S. King (b.TN). James and Elizabeth were married in 1846 in Jackson County, MO and the 1850 census shows their family which includes 4 or 5 sons born too early to belong to Elizabeth so I assume James had been married previously.

Any information on James Manion or Elizabeth King or their children would be most welcome.
