About John Jackson Maney

John was described as "of dark complexion" in 1858.[15] In 1907, Rev. Wesley Sutton saying he knew John Maney, said, "His hair, skin, shape of head, cheek bones and actions

all showed to be strongly marked as an Eastern Cherokee Indian.”[16]


He is said to have served in the War of 1812. (The only family name in the National Archives listing of soldiers from NC in the War of 1812 was a James Manny who served as a private in the I Regt. [McDonald's] of the MC Militia, and his papers are filed under the name of Manning.) A grandson stated that John received a land warrant for land in western Tennessee as a result of 3that service, but that by undue means, the land was lost.[17] Perhaps the land John G. Maney was referring to was on the Cherokee reservation near Sweetwater, Tenn.


With his father and brother, John laid claim to, and obtained land in, Sweetwater about 1817-19. He had left the lands by 1823 due to problems. The board of commissioners, under the treaty of 1835, did not grant him an allowance because he had sold his reservation[18] to William Dillard.[19]


Censuses of 1820 (p. 98) and 1830 (p. 287) show him living with his family in Buncombe Co., NC. In the 1830s, Yancey Co. was formed from Buncombe, and it is in Yancey Co. that he is located in 1840 (p. 270) and 1850 (p. 449(. He lived in Paint Fork of Little Ivy. In the 1850s, Yancey Co. was split, with Madison Co. being created from it. In 1870, John and his wife were living in Township #4 of Madison Co. with their son, George (p. 17).


He is said by this son, George H., to have died in 1876.[20] However, an affidavit by another son, Martin Burlison, in 1896, said John died in 1877.[21]


Polly (Metcalf) Maney has her maiden name given, at times, as Polly Madcap. Various applications to the Eastern Cherokees in 1906-7, state that both Polly and John were born in either Buncombe or Yancey Co., MC. The censuses of 1850, 1870 and 1880 show that she was born in either 1793 or 1794. Various Cherokee rolls indicate she was between seven and nine years younger than John. Son George's 1906 Cherokee application

says she died in 1882, though the Hester Roll (Jan. 1, 1883) says she was 91 and living in Democrat, NC, then.
