James Mannen, member of a family long prominent in Jefferson county,
died last night at the home of this daughter, Mrs. Charles Sigworth,

six p.m. Mrs. Sigworth found him unconscious and summoned a physician. Death
occurred two hours later.

engaging in farming during the active years of his life. He was a member of
