Mann (and Kise)

A small village in western Lancaster County, Pennsylvannia was the home of Elizabeth Clementine Mann. My grandmother had fond memories of Washington Boro. I have also seen it spelled "Washingtonboro". It is located on the Susquehanna River a few miles south of Columbia.

Clementine
Griffith Mann

Elizabeth Clementine Mann's grandparents were John Mann and Clementine Griffith. According to story, Clementine Griffith was a small child when she came to the United States from England. She was accompanied by her mother, who died on the journey and was buried at sea. Clementine was raised by an older sister who was already here.

Barbara Kise, wife of Amos Mann and mother of Elizabeth, lived all of her life in the tiny village. The Mann's lived there for quite some time as well. In the 1880 Federal Census the Mann's and Kise's were neighbors and the families seemed to have known each other. There was also a second Kise family which lived in Washingtonboro and I have included some information on them.

In March, 2001, a visit was made to Washingtonboro. The main cemetery, adjacent to both the Church of God and United Methodist churches was walked with notations of the Kise, Mann and Steiner graves. They are listed here.

There was a second Kise family living in Washingtonboro and, although none has been found, there may be a connection between the two families so a separate family tree has been constructed. Part of the information was provided by Carrie Kise Leschke and Mae Kise Peters.

Henry Kise had red hair. Although married to Sarah (Sally) Ortmann, b. Apr. 1830, he fathered a lot of children out of wedlock. Sarah died fairly young. Children by Sarah:

  1. John O., b. July 1860 m. in 1880, Susan Lee, b. Nov. 1862, d. 1911. Their children are:
    1. Harry, b. Oct. 1882
    2. Edgar Kise I, b. Oct. 1884, d. Feb. 1960; m. Alverta Olewieler, b. 1888. Their children are:
      1. Edgar L. Kise II, b. 1907, d. 1953
      2. Carrie Kise Leschke, b. 1906
      3. Mae Kise Peters, b. 1911
      4. Jean Kise Morrison, b. 1916
    3. Harvey Kise, b. Apr. 1886
    4. John Kise, b. Apr. 1888, d. at 20 years of age
    5. William Kise, b. Sep. 1891
    6. Bertha, b.Aug. 1893
    7. Bessie, b. May 1895
    8. Elsie Kise, b. 1902, baby of the family
    9. Elva Kise, b. May 1896
    10. Carrie, b. July 1899, d. in infancy
  2. Girl who died young
  3. George, b. Jan. 1870
  4. Abe, b. Aug. 1875

A solid connection linking this family to another family has been found. HOWEVER, Henry Kise may have been the son of Maria and Henry Kise. Henry (Maria) Kise died before 1850. No record has yet been found connecting young Henry to Sarah Ortman Kise. The two were never living together when a census was taken. HOWEVER, young Henry's dates are similar to those of the son of Henry and Maria. Young Henry was 45 in the 1880 Census and Sarah was 40.

So a family tree for the Henry's is possibly:
Henry, b. 1810-1820; d. before 1850; m. abt. 1835, Maria, b. 1808; d. 1899. Their children are:

  1. Henry, b. 1834; m. abt. 1858 Sarah Ortman, b. Apr. 1830.
  2. (George) Washington, b. 1837
  3. Milton, b. 1838
  4. Elizabeth K., b. Dec. 1840
  5. James, b. 1844
  6. Mathias, b. Jan. 1846; d. Jan. 4, 1917; m. abt. 1867, Mary, b. June 1846. Their children are:
    1. Alice, b. May 1866; d. 1935
    2. Florence, b. abt. 1869

Very possibly, Henry Kise, b. 1810-1820, and John Kise, b.24 Feb. 1809, are brothers and sons of Jacob Kise, b. 1780-1790.
