Below to Ed Todd of Wilmington who sent me a Maner query. I told him that I
was a Maynard because my mother thought all those country folks down in S.
Georgia were just slurring Maynard into Maner. Sez Ed: hey, she did the
right thing by mistake, the original WAS Maynard and the variant is
Maner.....so I guess those folks down in S. Georgia DID slur it into Maner. :)
Bud, I gave him your name and number in case he stumbles across any Hester
Wilder Mock stuff while he is fooling around in Screven County records.
Subj: Re: Maner
Ed.....mailing you a 3 1/2 floppy today. I just "searched" and copied every
file that came up saying it had "Maner" in it so if you get to a Maner the
Barbarian or something goofy just junk it. There may be a nougat or two in
there for you but most of it is "peripheral Maner". Hope it helps.
P. S.....the "Bud" mentioned in the files is "almost" a Maner
lives right there in Wilmington.....Bud Poythress, 4741 Rushing Drive,
452-6338. Bud descends from the first marriage of Meredith Poythress, Jr. to
Hester Wilder Mock;
I descend from the second marriage of Meredith Poythress, Jr. to Susan R.
daughter of John S. Maner, Sr. Bud is on our listserver discussion group
which has about a dozen or so "actives" on it.
