Additional Comments:
James N. Mann was a first cousin of Miss Diana Snellings. Diana's mother was
Virginia (Mann) Snellings. The Manns and Snellings removed from Chesterfield
County, Virginia to Morgan County, Georgia before 1810. Diana's father,
Alexander, died at a young age. Family legend is that the Alexander Snellings'
House in which Virginia lived burned, and that James N. Mann built a house and
gave it to his cousin, Diana. This property and house was opposite the Rehobath
Cemetery on a dirt road. The Rehobath Methodist Church was opposite the
cemetery having been given by Madison Branch Snellings, brother of Miss Diana
