Q22013 Photograph is Felix H McManus of Montgomery, AL b. 13 Sep 1843 in AL and d. 19 Mar 1902 on Montgomery, AL. He is the son of and 4th child of Edward and Margaret McManus. Felix was a well known carriage maker in the Montgomery area all of his life. Felix was married twice. Once to my 2nd GGF sister, Mary Virginia “Mattie/Jennie” Kelly who was b. 1846 Georgia and d. 1873 in Montgomery, AL. They were married 10 Dec 1868 in Chambers County, AL. Of this union two children are known to have been born: Willetta McManus and Edward McManus. Jennie died a short period after Eddie was born. I am unsure of where Jennie is buried. In Felix obituary she was named Mattie and her brother, my 2ndGGF WC Kelly she was known as Jennie. Felix married a second time to Deloura ‘Lou’ Hazeltine Judson Pace (b 1850 d. 1918) in 1875 in Montgomery, AL. The had a wonderful marriage with 3 sons living to adulthood: Felix, Frederick and George McManus. There are a number of advertisments listed in the Montgomery Advertiser for his carriages. He was well liked and well respected.
