There is very little information about Fred Maney. In fact, it is unknown if Fred Maney is the correct transcription of the 1870 census. This name is based on outside transcriptions of the 1870 United States Census, which is in poor condition. Looking at the census, the name may also be transcribed as Aaron Maney.[i] Fred is living with Andrew and Henrietta Maney and worked as a farm laborer in Murfreesboro.[ii] Fred would have been about nine-years-old at the end of the Civil War.[iii] The uncertainty about Fred’s name makes it difficult to know any other information after 1870.
