James, Manissah

Biography

Manissah James Birth Record

Manissah James was born and died in 1881. His parents, Sylvester and Mary Ann Perkins James, were both members of the LDS Church when he was born; they lived in the Salt Lake 1st Ward. 1 Manissah was blessed in that ward on 25 July 1881 by Joseph Warburton, making him “a child of record.” 2 He died four months later on 11 November 1881, of pneumonia. 3 The other James children who lived at least to the age of eight were baptized; presumably, Manissah would have likewise been baptized if he had survived.

He is buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. 4
