Mann Family Collection

In 2002, Elizabeth Plummer Carter sent digital reproductions of photos of her grandparents and their family to The History Center. Dr. D. A. Mann was a doctor in Diboll, Texas from roughly 1906-1917. This collection contains Mann family photographs focusing on D. A. Mann, his wife Alma Sturrock Mann, and children Bertha, Eunice, Eddith, and Mary. Mrs. Carter was Bertha Mann Plummer's daughter.
