  Research Notes:

Said to be a stepchild, probably of the mother, making him the son of a first of two wives (or common-law wives). Have not yet found solid information on Billy Manes' wife or wives.
There is a town called Manes in Wright County, Missouri, named after Seth.
From Wikipedia - Manes, Missouri :

Manes (pronounced M is an unincorporated community in Wright County , Missouri , United States , about 12 miles northeast of Hartville . Located on Route 95 , several houses are located here, and at one time the town had a post office (ZIP code 65703), though mail is now served by Mountain Grove .

Manes takes its name from a Baptist minister of Richland, Missouri by the name of Seth Manes. A missionary church was established in Manes in 1893 and in 1894 the first church was built in Manes. This building was used until 1925 when the current Baptist church building was erected.

Manes was a considerable trade center in the early part of the 20th century, boasting at least 3 stores, a bank, a post office, hotel, and eating establishments until automobiles and better highways made travel to larger towns more accessible.
