She and Leonard were married in Ohio in a May/December marriage, she being 35 years his junior. I don't know what relationship if any Margaret Mann was to David, but she was of an age to have been a sister to David, and it seems that she came from PA to Ohio with the Mann clan and then came on to Iowa with her husband and with the Mann family.|
