Biographical Sketch of Emerson Manger

EMERSON MANGER. One of the more ambitious and enterprising young farming men of Union Township may be cited in the person of Emerson Manger, who gives his time and honest attention to the cultivation of his eighty acre farm, located some two miles north of the town of Chesterfield, His accomplishments in the years of his residence here have been well worthy of mention, and it is not too much to expect that the future will find him steadily advancing in prosperity and success.

Born on August 29, 1881, in Pike County, near the town of Piketon, Ohio, Mr. Manger is the son of William and Sallie (Butler) Manger, His father died when he was quite young, and his mother later married William Butler Bronnenberg, mention of which is to be found in a sketch devoted to the Bronnenbergs in another portion of this work, The Manger family originally came from Germany, where it was long established, and many of its representatives will be found there to the present day.

On August 5, 1905, Mr. Manger married Hazel Hancock, concerning whose family mention is made elsewhere in this work. Two children have been born to them,-Harold and Ralph.

Mr. Manger is a Democrat, but in no sense a politician, and he is fraternally identified by his membership in the Knights of Pythias and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, He is prominent in local circles, and is known for one of the more successful stock men of the Township.
