WADE HAMPTON MAN'LEY.
By Win. D. S.
As far back as 1 can recollect,
Thomas Manley was miller at Tum
bling Shoals. He was one of the best
grinders in the land. He milled for
Father and staid with nie until his
deatli. One time, he made up his mind
to go on the farm. He purchased the
Linney Pool place and paid cash for
it and bought a negro woman and
paid half down on her. The Jackson
money panic came on and the bottom
dropped out tho soles of property. He
had to sell and tho land an woman on
ly brought enough to pay the ono half
due on the negro. He camo back to
the mill again, and made another rise.
Next time he and Tira Manley opened
a store at the Hickory Tavern. He
put in $500. One night the house
caught on fire and everything was lost.
'Tncle Ia>w" Kim! in this second ad
venture he only got out two gallons
of whiskey. Our people would have
good schools, and he sent his son,
Hampton, to them, until he had a fair
English education. Ho taught school,
then clerked in Columbia and at John
Smith's. After the war he moved to
Laurons city, staid with John Fowler
and kept books for Judge Lark in the
Probate Office. He was a line book
keeper and a splendid penman, His
writing looked like a copy plate! lb'
lived single and finished his life's work
at Laurons. Our family and the Man
leys lived so long together, we felt
i like homefolks.
