James Mannen Dies 
At Daughter's Home 
8 P.M. Wednesday

James Mannen, member of a family long prominent in Jefferson county, 
died last night at the home of this daughter, Mrs. Charles Sigworth, 
in Waltonville. He would have been 60 years old had he lived until July 4. 

Mr. Mannen had been in impaired health for several years, but was able to 
visit the Waltonville business district yesterday afternoon. Returning home, 
he worked awhile in the garden and then went to the house to rest. About 
six p.m. Mrs. Sigworth found him unconscious and summoned a physician. Death 
occurred two hours later. 

Mr. Mannen was born in Jefferson county and spent his entire life here, 
engaging in farming during the active years of his life. He was a member of 
the Universalist church at Waltonville. He is survived by one daugther, 
Mrs. Sigworth; three sons, Robert Mannen of Decatur, Hugh Mannen at home and 
Harry Mannen of Louisville, Ky; three brothers, Ira Mannen of Waltonville and 
L. E. and Roy Mannen, both of Mt. Vernon; and one sister, Mrs. Lydia Wray, 
Creighton, Neb. 

Funeral arrangements have not been completed.
