 J. P. Manning Dead
Eastern Reflector, Tues., Sept. 17, 1901
Mr. J. P. MANNING, who was accidentally hurt while in bathing in Grindle Creek on Aug. 7th, 1901, from which he became paralyzed, died Sept. 5th in the hospital at Tarboro.  Everything that was possible was done for him by the physicians of this section.  He was taken to John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore where it was found no relief could be given him, when he was brought back home and placed in the hospital at Tarboro.  His father attended him faithfully there until the end. Few young men raised in Pitt County started out in life with brighter prospects than the subject of this sketch. He was raised I Bethel township where he lived until the age of twenty-one when with his older brother, W. J. MANNING, he purchased the Edgar BUCK farm, three miles from Greenville and resided there until he met the terrible accident which cost him his life.  The death of this young m an, who was cut down just as he was entering the prime of life has cast a gloom over his friends and the community. He was 24 years old and a son of J. L. G. MANNING, Esq., of Bethel Township.  The father, a sister and three brothers survive him, and they have the sincere sympathy of a large circle of friends in the untimely death of their loved one.  He will be missed by friends and associates as few young men of his age are missed. ---J.
