We have investigated the rare earth elements dependence on the magnetism to understand the contribution to physical properties of the 4f electrons of (LnO)MnAs (Pn = La, Ce, Pr, Nd). (CeO)MnAs, (PrO)MnAs and (NdO)MnAs shows the antiferromagnetic behaviors at low temperature. (CeO)MnAs and (NdO)MnAs have the magnetic anomalies around 34 K and 24 K, respectively. So, it is speculated that the anomalies depend on the Mn -Mn distance directly
