death certificate

[transcribed 3 January 2015, from FamilySearch (whose indexer read his family name as 'Manniceo'--but see the death register entry at FamilySearch)]
[identification is uncertain, based only on his name--although it's distinctive, and I haven't found other people with the same name in Philadelphia, they may have used a variant, as he apparently did at times]
[the 1892 Gopsill's Philadelphia directory, p.1294: '" [sc. Mannice] William H., shoemkr, h 1323 Adams, Fkd'; the 1891 Gopsill's directory doesn't have any relevant entries on page 1255]
