[Nicholas County] [Carlisle City and Precinct] COL. R. E. MANN, grocer,
Carlisle, is a son of James and Bettie (Stoker) Mann, both from Virginia,
and early settlers of Nicholas County. He was born near Forest Retreat,
Nicholas Co., July 21, 1846; is one of eight children, four of whom are now
living: Leonidas, R. E., Alice and Sherman. Col. Mann received his
education in the town of Carlisle. He was appointed by the Legislature upon
the staff of Governor Leslie, and in the same year was appointed by the
Governor as one of the four commissioners from Kentucky to the Vienna
Exposition. On account of the death of his sister, about the time of
starting, he was compelled to decline the appointment. In 1876 he started
the only wholesale grocery in Carlisle, which is now running in connection
with eight other stores in different counties. On the 29th of June 1876,
Col. Mann married Miss Phoebe, daughter of Dr. J.J. and Pickett (Metcalf)
Taylor, of Lexington, Mrs. Taylor being a niece of Governor Metcalf and a
sister-in-law of James Metcalf, who was Secretary of State under Governor
Powell, and represented Nicholas County in the Legislature two terms.
Colonel Mann has two children: Horace and Madge H.
