In Response To: Re: Miles Manzilla b.1799 VA mvd Smith, Ohio wife Ann M. brn ()
Miles Manzilla settled in Smith, Columbiana, Ohio in 1840 I believe because his wife Anna Cyrus had relatives (Thomas & Duanna Cyrus) in the area. The Cyrus' had a daughter Lucinda (born 1851-1931). Lucinda is listed on the 1920 census as a cousin to the twins and they were living in Salem, Columbiana, Ohio.
I have Margaretta's official death certificate stating her death at 84yrs on 12-03-1933. She is buried at Hope cemetery in Salem, Ohio. I researched this family because there are three connections to my Harper ancestors.(1) they all came from the same area (Loudoun Cty) Virginia, (2) they all settled in the Columbiana are, (3) my ancestor Enoch Harper was an a conductor on the Underground Railroad and his youngest son Frank M Harper lived with Lucinda Cyrus before her death. I have a very old picture of a set of twins, but don't know if they were the Manzilla girls. I don't know much more, but I'd be glad to help if I can.
