According to a biography of Jeremiah McMann published in "History of Huron Co, Ohio, Vol. II," Jeremiah left home and struck out on his own at the age of 12. He learned to be a cooper, making or repairing casks and barrels. He arrived in Chicago in 1864 and lived there, practicing his trade, until 1871 when he moved to Wakeman, Huron County, Ohio. By then he was married to Julia Loun and had 3 sons. (This biography attributes Margaret's birthplace to Wakeman in 1872. However, before her death, Margaret Weisenberger, granddaughter of Margaret McMann, found evidence that Margaret McMann was born in 1868 in Illinois.) This source is the only printed mention of the son William that has been found thus far. However, on a visit to the Wakeman Cemetery, Margaret and this author made contact with the old caretaker, Pat Nolan, who remembered Richard McMann. When we questioned him about the mysterious "A. Clare" (see notes for Andrew Clare McMann), Mr. Nolan mentioned a younger brother, William, who had died in infancy.

The following is excerpted from the biography of John J. McMann as published in "History of Huron County Ohio Its Progress and Development," by A. J. Baughman :

Jeremiah McMann, "...a native of Ireland, left his home at the age of twelve years and from that time was dependent upon his own resources for a livelihood. He experienced many hardships and privations during the early period of his career, but never permitted himself to be overcome by any obstacles. By untiring perseverance and unfaltering industry, he learned the coopers trade and gradually worked his way upward until he became a large operator in his line of activity. In 1864, he arrived in Chicago, where he engaged in his trade until 1871, when he came to Wakeman, where he spent the remaining days of his life. He operated a large cooperage in this city and became very prosperous in his business enterprise. A man of great force of character, he possessed a strong personality, and was known throughout the community for his charitable and humanitarian traits. A man who acquired money easily, he gave liberally of his means to the poor and needy and no worthy person in distress ever sought his aid in vain, so that when he passed away on the 30th of September, 1898, his death was the occasion of deep and widespread regret. He was laid to rest in the Wakeman cemetery, while his wife still survives him. Their family consisted of five children, namely: John J., Jerre H., Richard, Margaret and William..."
(pp. 436-437)

From the "Norwalk Daily Reflector," Norwalk, Ohio, published Saturday, October 1, 1898:

"Jerry McMann, an old resident of Wakeman, committed suicide Friday afternoon in his barn, by shooting himself in the heart with a revolver, and when he was found his shirt was open and the weapon was lying by his side. He was always in good spirits and there is no known reason why he should have committed the deed. He leaves a family consisting of a wife, three sons, and a daughter."

King,Myrta MM-I-L70/F/WWidow

The census image for 1920 on was very faded and difficult to read. However, John J. McMann is listed in the index as W/M/64, born in New York. Also listed in the index is Frank W. McMann W/M/46, born Ohio, residing 1920 Wakeman, Huron County, Ohio, father born Ireland. This page was a little more legible. Also listed with Frank is his wife, Alberta R., and Russle (Wats?), stepson. It seems likely that Frank W. McMann was related to this family (Wakeman was, and is, a very small community) but I am unaware of the relationship at this time.


From "History of Huron County, Vol. II," p. 438:

"...he is well known in business and political circles of this community, his activity in the latter leading to his selection for positions of public trusts. A native of New York, he was born in Dutchess county, that state, October 13, 1855, a son of Jerre and Julia (Lown) McMann..."
"A worthy successor of his honored father, John J. McMann acquired his education in the schools of New York, Chicago and Wakeman, and early became associated with his father in the mill business, taking complete charge of the mill after the demise of the latter. It is true that he became interested in a business already established, but in the controlling and enlarging of the enterprise, he has demonstrated the truth of the saying that success is not the result of genius, but the outcome of a clear judgement and experience. Some years prior to the death of his father, the supply of available timber for cooperage purposes became depleted and the mill was converted into a bent wood and general sawmill, which John J. McMann has since continued to operate. He has extended his interests to include the lumber and contracting business and his capable control of his combined enterprises is bringing to him a marked degree of success. He possesses untiring energy, is quick of perception, forms his plans readily and is determined in their execution, and his close application to business and his excellent management have brought to him the substantial prosperity which is today his.
Not only in business circles, however, has Mr. McMann figured prominently in the affairs of Wakeman, but he is equally well known in political circles and is deeply and helpfully interested in all public matters. He is a stalwart democrat and during the two terms of President Cleveland, served as postmaster of Wakeman. His election to this office came to him through no solicitation on his part, but as an expression of the appreciation of his sterling qualities and high standing in the community on the part of his fellowmen. He also served as township clerk for several terms and proved an excellent official in both capacities. Something of his personal popularity and his high standing among all classes in this community is indicated in the fact that in 1908 he was nominated for county treasurer in a county that was strongly republican and in spite of that fact that the republican majority ran from eight to eighteen hundred, Mr. McMann was elected by a majority of four hundred and eighteen votes over his opponent.Mr. McMann was united in marriage on the 17th of October, 1878, to Miss Ella J. Harris, a daughter of Andrew and Rebecca (Harrison) Harris. The father was engaged in the mercantile business in this city for many years and still survives at the venerable age of eight-four years, his mind remaining as clear and his interest in public affairs as keen as in former years. His wife, however, passed away on January 10, 1899." (Editor's note: I am not sure who this refers to unless Rebecca lied about being a widow, as was apparently common in the case of divorce, in the 1880 census. The dates do not fit the death dates for Jeremiah and Julia McMann.) "The home of Mr. and Mrs. McMann has been blessed with one son, Clifford H., who is associated with his father in business, while they also lost a child who died in infancy.
Mr. McMann is a member of Gibson Lodge, No. 301, F & A. M., and also holds membership with the Royal Arch Masons, and has filled all of the offices of the organization. He likewise belongs to the Lumbermen's Association of the Hoo-Hoos. Public-spirited to a marked degree, he is a stalwart advocate of public improvements along all lines, believing that therein lies the secret of the future growth and development of the community. He is fond of outdoor sports and seeks recreation and relaxation from business cares in occasional hunting and fishing trips. Giving due attention to the varied interests which develop a well rounded character, he belongs to that useful and helpful type of men whose ambitions and desires are centered and directed in those channels through which flow the greatest and most permanent good to the greatest number."
