    The Record of Jacob Mann of Indian Creek
    By Margaret B Ballard M.D.
    July 31,1961
    Jacob Mann, the pioneer, who settled on Indian Creek in what is now
    Monroe County WV in the 1770 is said by some to have come directly from
    the Danube in germany. Others say his sons Jacob and Adam were from
    GERMANY and werethe pioneers. Esten Mann was inclined to believe that
    Jacob 1st was the sonof John and Mary Mann who were in William Penn's
    Colony in Pennsylvania. Johnand Mary Mann did have a son, Jacob Mann,
    who according to Charles S Mann ofHatburrough PA went to Virginia before
    the Revolutionary War. This Jacob Mann married Barberry Miller. We
    believe she was the daughter of Jacob and and Catherine Charlotte
    (Mueller) Miller.
    Esten Mann says that Jacob and BarbaraMiller Mann had 4 children when
    they settled at Indian Creek. However, no written record has been found
    to support this statement
    1. Jacob Mann II, who according to Esten Mann was 18 years old when he
    came with his father to Indian Creek, married Mary Kessinger 24 Aug 1779
    2. Adam Mann married 1st Mary Maddy on 9 Dec 1783 and married 2nd Polly
    Flinn on 3 May 1790
    3. Elizabeth Mannwho married William Maddy 25 Feb 1783
    4. Mary Mann, who may have been the MaryMann, who married Jesse Meador
    23 Feb 1789.
    Jacob and Barbary (Miller) Mannmay have been the parents of
    5. Moses Mann who married 10 Mar 1778 GreenbrierFrances Bland
    6. James Mann who married 10 Oct 1792 Greenbrier Nancy McKinsley
    Jacob and Barbara Mann settled on Indian Creek in Monroe County, near
    thesite of what is now known as Springfield, or Hunter's Springs about 3
    miles fromm Greenville on Rt 3. Very little is known of the early days of
    this family in Monroe County, then in Botetourt County Va. We do know
    that they broughtall their farm and blacksmith tools with them and set
    up a blacksmith shop under a cliff on the creek bank. Their home was
    probably on or near the same site of the house now owned by Mrs. Eva
    Pence on the road between Rt 3 and theroad up Cook's Run that passes the
    old Keaton Cemetery. The blacksmith shopwas on the opposite side of the
    creek from the house. The anvil from the blacksmith shop is now in the
    possession of Hugh ballard Miller of Cook's Run andthe fro is in the
    possession of Margaret R Ballard of Baltimore MD (myself).Apparently the
    4 children were born before they came to Indian Creek. This is from Esten
    Mann, but he does not give a source for this infomation.
    We dobelieve, and have every right to do so, that the two sons helped
    to build Cook's Fort, near Greenville and that the family of Jacob Mann
    Sr spent some time in the Fort at the time of the Indian uprisings. No
    list of any of the inhabitants of the fort is in existence that the
    writer knows of, but the familylived closer to Cook's Fort than to any
    oter fort in the area
    It is said that Barbara (Miller) Mann died in Cook's Fort during an
    Indian Raid and was buried near the fort. Jacob is said to have died
    later and to have been buried in the Halstead Cemetery.
    Cook's Fort stood about where the home of Mattie Johnson now stands, her
    husbnd J. R. Johnson, was once sheriff of Monroe County
    My note: I have that Jacob Mann died 16 May 1815 and that Barbara
    (Miller) Mann died 1819. I have no source for these dates (Loretta
    Presley)
