"Martin Maney was born on a small farm in 1752 probably near the village of Temple Udigan in
Wexford County, Ireland. . . .
"On page 3 of the Martin Maney book is a copy of the Spotsylvania County, VA. Records for the
Minute Book 1774-1782 on which records Fielding Lewis' entry that he 'came into Court and made
oath that in October 1769 he imported into this State eighty two indented servants from Ireland on
the Brigg Fanny by Captain Richard Taylor . . . .' Martin is found as the first name on line fifteen of
that record. In researching who Fielding Lewis was I discovered him as being the brother-in-law to
Commanding General George Washington."
