Louis Manigault
Birth: Nov. 21, 1828
Paris, France
Death: Nov. 22, 1899
Berkeley County
South Carolina, USA

Obit November 24, 1899 page 8

Mr. Louis Manigault died at the home of his son-in-law, Mr. Hawkings K. Jenkins, in Pinopolis, on Wednesday, and the funeral services were held at Magnolia Cemetery yesterday afternoon. Mr. Manigault was the brother of the lamented Dr. Gabriel E. Manigault; they had lived together nearly all of their lives and in their deaths were not long divided. They had traveled and studied in Europe together and had many tastes in common, notably a love of art, and their beautiful home in this city had more art treasures than any home in South Carolina. Mr. Louis Manigault devoted the early years of his young manhood to all but intimates, to them his conversation was of absorbing interest. His zeal for knowledge almost lost him his file near Canton, China, when he and an English army officer were attacked by a mob of enraged Chinamen, and defended themselves with short swords until success came. Mr. Manigault visited the Philippines and was not content with a sight of Manilla, but made long journeys to the interior of Luzon. At the outbreak of the Philippine war a reported fro The News and Courier secured a brief but most interesting story of some of Mr. Manigault's experiences. He traveled one thousand miles across South America on horseback, and his diary, written in French, would doubtless give many incidents of thrilling adventure and pages of scholarly comment made by the quiet unassuming gentleman who has for so many years walked our streets unknown to the great mass of people. Mr. Manigault was 71 years old on last Tuesday, the day before his death. He married Miss Habersham of Savannah who died many years ago. Two sons and a daughter survive him.
