Ohio born Confederate soldier James Madison Manley/Manly (1837-1905)

My 2G-Grandfather James Madison Manley/Manly (name often spelled either way) was in the Florida Seminole War in 1856 and the 8th Florida Infantry during the Civil War. He lost his left arm at the Battle of Fredericksbury on 11 Dec 1862. He survived the war and lived out his life in Ft. Meade, Florida -- had 16 children before it was all over. He was born in Ohio Territory in what is now Scioto County, in or near Portsmouth, OH. Have hit a brick wall with his parents. Cannot track him back to Ohio from Florida. He shows up in the 1850 census in Hillsborough County, FL (at about 13 years old?) living with H.G. and Mary BELLOWS. Does anyone have any leads on his Manley/Manly parents or how he came to be living with the BELLOWS family? Could he have been a runaway? An orphan? Any Manley/Manly leads in Ohio (or vicinity) would be most appreciated. ~Jim McDaniel,
