Frank and Kate Manning

16 June 2020

Captain Franklin Manning was elected Captain of Company K of the 8th South Carolina Infantry in May 1862 and led them in action on Maryland Heights near Harpers Ferry on 13 September 1862. His right arm was shattered by a gunshot there and, disabled for the field, he was detailed to duty at Cheraw, SC for the rest of the war. He was a successful planter on the family plantation in Marlboro County after the war.

He’s pictured here later in life with his wife Clarissa Ann “Kate” Covington on a page from W. H. Manning, Jr. and Edna Anderson Manning’s Our Kin (1958), online from the Hathi Trust.
