Mann Family

David Mann, who had married Phcebe Parker, came to the Holland Purchase from Manlius, N. Y., and settled in Byron on a farm in 1817, now owned by his granddaughter, Mrs. Benton, where he spent the remainder of his long life. He died in August, 1850, aged 77 years. His wife died in 1830. He was the father of nine children, seven of whom lived and married. His youngest son, Reuben, was born January 28, 1810, and was seven years of age when his father settled in Byron. He was reared on the homestead, and received his education in the common schools. In 1835 he married Betsey Hall. of Byron, a native of Peru, Mass., and settled on a farm of 25 acres adjoining his father's. In 1854 he removed to the farm where his only daughter now resides. He built a residence and buildings, and added to his farm from time to time, until it now contains 115 acres. He died October 25, 1889, aged 79 years. Mrs. Mann died August 2, 1886. Their daughter Livilla, born February 15, 1840, married Edward B. Clark, December 28, 1860, who was a farmer and mechanic. In 1863 he enlisted in the Union army, served 11 months, received a gun-shot wound in his left arm, near Peterburg, and was confined in the hospital at Alexandria six months, when he was discharged. This wound caused him much suffering until 1875, when he was relieved by amputation. He eventually died of blood poisoning, April 21, 1887, aged 55 years. Mr. and Mrs. Clark had one daughter, Evelyn, born May 4, 1868, who resides on the homestead with her mother.
