Manning, Thompson, was born on the farm which he now own; January 12, 1822. His father was one of the early settlers of the county and cleared up the farm on which his son now resides. He received his education in the district schools, after leaving which, he devoted himself to farming, at the same time taking an active interest in the events of the day, both political and educational. He was trustee of the school in the district in which he lives for eight or more years, and finally declined the office. Our subject is a prosperous farmer in his neighborhood, and raises large amounts of hay, grain and stock, and makes a specialty of sheep.
