About Emma Manning (Hayes)

=============

From FindAGrave:

Emma is the daughter of James L. Hayes and Mary Blassingame. She married James Edward Manning in Bell Co, Texas, on 10 March 1881 and was widowed eleven years later when he died of complications from the mumps.

Emma never remarried, choosing instead to raise six of their seven children alone. Oral history records she didn't want a step-father telling her children what to do. Her children were John W, James Claude, Mary Elizabeth, Kitty Lee, Gussie, Carl Ernest, and Byrd Emma.

She lived briefly in Oklahoma, but returned to Comanche Co, Texas, to join her Hayes family who had settled there after her marriage to Ed.

The original Manning homestead, located outside of Killeen, was passed to her son Carl and remained in that family line until just recently. Her father-in-law, James H. Manning, along with the Murphy family, donated land for the first Hay Branch school room formerly located on FM 439.

Update November 2009

=============

From the FindAGrave for sister-in-law Mollie Seales (Manning), in late 1883 (Oct?) James & Emma took in Mollie & Richards two daughters to raise -- Rosa and Lillie Bell.
