This great article appeared in the Dispatch some time ago (maybe the 30s – still trying to find out).
It reads: The greatest gathering of old timers here since the famed barbecues of Indian Henry will be at the home of Mrs. and Mrs. Clifford Manning Sunday from 1 to 5 o’clock in observances oft heir golden wedding anniversary.
Mrs. Manning was born in the log cabin of her homesteading parents, Mrs. and Mrs. John Dillard King, who came to the area in 1889. The King homestead included most of the land across the highway from where Ohop Bob now stands. The log cabin where Mrs. Manning was born still stands.
Her parents were originally from North Carolina. They left the state for Texas and settled in Farmersville, but fevers caused them to migrate across the plains to southern Pierce County.
Mr. and Mrs. Manning have one child, Mrs. Robert Games of Eatonville rural route, and two grandchildren, Manning and Frank Games.
