      215. Gray Little18 Manning (Elijah Lewis17, Hillary16, Benjamin15, John14, Nicholas13, Thomas12, John11, Thomas10, Thomas9, Richard8, John7, Hugo6, John5, John4, Simon3, William2, Stephen1)34 was born Feb 14, 1811 in Edgecomb, Bertie Co., NC, and died Jul 24, 1868 in Milam Co., TX. He married Elizabeth Ann Washington Rogers34 Feb 14, 1832 in Lowndes County, Alabama.

Notes for Gray Little Manning:
After marriage, he and wife moved to Clark County, Arkansas with her parents, 2 brothers and their families. The home in which their 11 children grew up was a nine room 2 story colonial house. In 1925/26 a small tornado ripped across the hill and twisted the house so badly the owners tore it down and built a small cottage nearer the road. A French artist was hired to decorate the old home. Known as Squire Manning, he was a successful planter, shipping his cotton and other produce to New Orleans by boat and bringing back staples and other commodities. In 1860 his real estate was valued at $8,000 dollars and his personal property at $14,375. He had schools on the plantation for his negroes and had freed som of them. The others he looked after as if they were his children. He didn't whip his slaves and it was said that he hired a northern man as overseer, and he saw this man whip a slave and he jerked the whip from his hand and drove him off the place with it. He didn't believe in slavery but it was a economic necessity. When Arkansas seceded from the Union he was to old to fight, but he gave so much aid to the south he was forced to take rufuge to TX awhile when the Yankees were in Arkadelphia. He died from a accident visiting his daughter Sally, he was trying to gentle a horse that was tied to a tree, the horse became spooked and ran around the tree several time crushing Gray to death. He was a active member of the Baptist Church and had given land to for the Church house in 1836, Bethel Church.

In 1841, he and his wife, Elizabeth, and Panthen Rogers, wife of James K. Rogers, were all expelled from the church with a charge of non-fellowship with the church.


Notes for Elizabeth Ann Washington Rogers:
After her husbands death, the Carpet Bag Rulers of Clark County took everything from her except the house and the acreage which her father had given her. A $1,000. dollar Kentuck Thouroughbred saddle horse which her husband had given his daughter Martha, was taken to pay a small note which was said he had underwritten for a relative. Proof has been found showing that the debt was paid. But Elizabeth was alone and sheltered and knew not what to do. In 1871 she with her 4 youngest daughters moved to Calvert TX, her son in law let her bring with her only what could be held in one wagon. The things let behind were to be sent for later and left with a Rogers cousin, that day never came and none of the family was able to get it either. A old Grandfather clock was one of the possessions.
