John Mann, the youngest child of George Bernard Mann, was born in New Holland, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in 1745. He married Susannah Price in 1765. Susannah was the daughter of Augustine Price and Anna Elizabeth Scherp.
They resided on John's 500+ acre Virginia property at Sinking Creek near New River. This land is now in West Virginia.
John served in the Virginia Militia during the Revolutionary War. He also served as a captain in the Ohio Militia. John, Susannah, and their family, joined their eldest son, John Jr, in Miami County, Ohio around 1801. At that time John appointed his son-in-law, Andrew Hatfield, as agent to sell his Virginia land holdings.
After staying in Ohio for several years with his sons, John and Susannah relocated to Delaware County, Indiana.
