Fortunately for those of us interested in Manning History today, Bessie collected pictures and information on several of her schoolmates during WWI.
She saved military pictures of Winford Addison, Neal Dunnick, William Dunnick & Roy Lawbaugh.
She also kept several pictures of Manning Sports teams and the Manning Band.

Roger Markley (Bessie's grandnephew) had these pictures and information handed down to him and we are fortunate that he kept them and did not throw them away as has been done so many times before by people who don't have an interest in preserving history.
Roger recently found the Manning web pages and graciously offered to scan the pictures and information and send them to me by e-mail so I could put it on the Internet for others to enjoy.

I wonder how much information and photos are "hiding" out there that have not been thrown away (yet)??

If you have pictures and information on Manning History please consider working with me to get your information/pictures added to Manning History web pages so it will be preserved for future generations to enjoy.
