McManamans of Indiana & Kentucky

  of 99

My McManamans came to Floyd, Indiana, & Louisville, Kentucky, (an area right across the Ohio River) in the 1840's. It is said that they knew very little of how to read or write and mostly spoke Gaelic. The immigrants' names are unknown. I do know that they had James, Patrick, Edward Franklin, Allice and others. Edward was born in 1846. According to some, he became interested in studying for the priesthood shortly before the war, but that interest was deterred as he later became a spy for General John Hunt Morgan in the Kentucky Cavalry, and was captured and released twice. In all likelihood, he participated in the Indiana/Ohio raids. He met and married Emeline Izzadore Thompson from Georgia, and moved to Charlotte to become a carpenter/constructor. I have received much information about his life, but I'd like to know more about that of his parents.
