Biography: WILLIAM R. MANNING
At the Eleventh Annual Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic, held at Davenport in April, 1885, William R. Manning, of Newton, was elected Department Commander. Manning was a native of Nashville, Tennessee, where he was born on February 11, 1841. He came to Iowa with his parents in 1854.
In August, 1861, he enlisted as first sergeant in Company I, Tenth Iowa Infantry. In March of the following year, he was promoted to the office of first lieutenant. Later he served as adjutant of his regiment and rendered gallant service, particularly at the battles of Iuka and Corinth.
For many years Mr. Manning conducted a grain and lumber business at Newton. By careful management he accumulated an ample competence for his later years. He was for many years active in Grand Army circles and seldom failed to attend annual encampments. He was a member of Garrett Post No. 16.
Because of impaired health he spent the winters during the latter years of his life in Jacksonville, Florida. It was there in the beautiful land of flowers, that he quietly came to the end of the way on March 12, 1912.
