Actor Charles Manley acting at Ford's?
While chasing down a rather dubious genealogical claim today, I stumbled into some sites which claim that Charles Manley, a stage actor who starred in some silent films late in his career, was among the cast at Ford's on the night of the assassination. I checked Thomas Bogar's book and didn't see him mentioned in it.

So does anyone know whether this is true, or if not, from where the misconception might have arisen? I'm guessing that perhaps Manley, who was born in 1830, might have acted at Ford's but not on the night in question.

This notice of his death doesn't mention any link with the assassination:
