M, b. November 1822, d. 20 March 1912
     James Harvey Manown was born in November 1822 in Pennsylvania.1 He was the son of James Manown and Cassandra Devore.2

An excerpt from the book The Genealogical and Personal History of the Upper Monongalia Valley West Virginia (page 727 to 728): "James H. Manown, M.D., son of James and Cassandria (Devore) Manown, was born in 1822, in Allegheny county, Pennsylvania. His earlier year spend in his native country, where he enjoyed unusually good educational advantages. He first received a common school education, then completed a course at the academy of Monongahela City, supplemented with a collegiate course of instruction at Washington, Pennsylvania, and then studied medicine with Dr. David Beard, of Franklin, Warren county, Ohio. He next completed a course at the Jefferson Medical College, at Philadelphia, taking the degree of Doctor of Medicine in 1844. His first venture at the profession was in Vincennes, Indiana, but a year later he removed to Greensburg Pennsylvania, where he remained four years. In 1854 he went to Kingwood, Virginia, now West Virginia, and there successfully followed his profession until 1863, when he enlisted in the Fourteenth West Virginia Infantry, as first surgeon of that regiment. He held this position until mustered out at the close of the civil ware. Resuming medical practice at Kingwood, he was appointed in the autumn of 1884, by George Wilson, as physician for the male department of the State Asylum. This place he ably filled four years, then again returned to Kingwood to continue general practice until his retirement a few years since. He served on the board of pension examiners of a number of years and has filled other positions equally important; but always ignoring political offices, Dr. Manown has preferred to keep within radius of his honored profession. He was one of the organizers of the West Virginia Medical Society. Now in his ninetieth year, Dr. Manown is the oldest physician in West Virginia, having been in practice in Preston county almost sixty years. His practice has been one of marked success professionally, and his honor and manliness have ever been notable. He has traveled over Preston and adjoining counties in all kinds of weather, and over roads that none but a faithful family doctor would think of going over. He has always labored for the upbuilding of his county and state. Coming of a longlived race, he is now more advanced than any of his relatives. Politically he is a Democrat and a true follower of Jackson, but in 1864 voted for Lincoln and 1868 for Grant as president. He is one the charter members of Kingwood Blue Loge of Masons and Chapter and is one of its oldest members. Both he and his wife are members of the Presbyterian church.
James H. Manown married, in Kingwood, in 1856, Mary I. Armstrong, of Frederick county, Maryland, where she was reared and educated. Children: James F., cashier of the Philippi Bank; Edward C., who resides in Baltimore, Maryland, where he holds a responsible position; Letitia, died when seven years of age.3
