I tried that and found lots of Manns including my great grandfather Albert Mann and great great grandfather William Mann. I'm just having trouble putting the families together and their inter relationships. Since the population at that time was so small I'm making the assumption that most of them were related. Any ideas on what to do next?

If you look at William and Ellen in census data, there is a son Horace who appears to be Albert's brother from marriage records.  He is easily traced on familysearch.org.  And in further census data you can find his children etc.  You plug in their names and locations to try to follow them.  etc.  Examples below:

U S Census, 1870 Independence, Jasper, IA

Ellen Mann   F 26 O

Jyline Mann   M 8 O   didn’t find this son later but the spelling (Jyline) may be a transcription error?
