Joseph R. Manning, Born on the 4th of July (Tombstone Tuesday)

A son of J. L. and H. V. Manning, Joseph Reubin was born 4 July 1885 and died six months later. He rests beside his sister, Zada Lillian, at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Cochran, Bleckley County, Georgia.

Though she outlived her brother, Zada was only on this earth six years. These cradle graves are a reminder of the tremendous loss surely felt by the Manning family during the years of 1886 and 1889.
