Alaska Bible Legacy:
My name is Manasseh
See “Keys to USA”
I was born first of two sons in Egypt to Israel’s (Jacob's) son Joseph (United States) and his wife, Asenath, daughter of Potiphera, priest of On.

My bible name means- GOD has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s household (No worries! I forgot the Old World Countries!).
When Joseph(USA) saw his father(GOD) placing his right hand on Ephraim's (Hawaii’s) head (as a blessing) he was displeased; so he took hold of his father's hand to move it from Ephraim's head to Manasseh's (Alaska’s) head. ~Genesis 48:17
