      Mary Nancy's baptismal record shows her as being "colored", and the
      parents being "William Boyles and Rosina Debroka".
      Mary Nancy died within a week of the birth of her daughter Mary Nancy
      Gertrude. Her will, prepared in the hotel as she was approaching
      death, granted legal custody of her two little girls, Idabelle Cloud
      and Mary Nancy Gertrude, to their father, Henry Manville, but
      appointed their aunt, Octavia Boykin Neely, as guardian. Octavia took
      full charge of the two children, and soon became known to all as
      "Mommaninnie"; Octavia also became the guardian of Genevieve Lyons,
      daughter of Virginia Dubroca (d. 1906) and Robert Francis Lyons --
      Virginia was the sister of Euphrosine, Octavia's mother; she also
      adopted a daughter, Maggie. Octavia was apparently a highly respected
      person, and had the means to fulfill her responsibilities. In later
      years, the girls would fondly remember their days with "Mommaninnie"
      and would also recall the antics of their lawyer uncle, James Cloud, a
      gentleman who suffered from such terrible headaches that he would pay
      the children to relieve his pain by pulling his hair! (Records show
      that James was eventually committed to an asylum in 1903). Henry
      Manville encouraged the raising of the two little girls by
      "Mommaninnie", giving himself the opportunity to remarry, (Mary Baker
      in 1899), and to start life anew.
      In 1908, "Mommaninnie", with the girls in tow, left Mobile for
      Chicago, where she led a fruitful life, dearly beloved by her nieces
      until she passed away in 1947. While there, her adopted daughter,
      Maggie, married Leonard Higgins; Idabelle spent her life as a music
      teacher with the Chicago Board of Education.
