Manoah Bostick Hampton, II  
(6th child of Manoah & Cynthia Mitchell Hampton)

Manoah Bostick Hampton,  II/Jr. was born 16 Apr 1835 in Leighton, Colbert County, AL.   Dr. Justin Glenn provided the following information about Manoah, which I have subsequently proved through Civil War proofs:
“Manoah attended U. of North Carolina;  joined the Confederate army in 1862 and was commissioned 1st lt., Co. H, 35th Ala. Infantry.   Subsequently he was commissioned captain. and raised a company of cavalry, which became Co. B, 11th Ala. Cavalry, CSA.  Though badly wounded at the battle of Corinth, he recovered and rejoined his regiment, in which he served until the end of the war.  He resided in Leighton, Ala., where he was active in Camp Fred A. Ashford, UCV.”      Manoah married Emma Jane Battle (1840-1882) on 31 May 1860 in Meridianville, AL.  After Emma’s death, he remarried a woman named Lida, who was much younger.   He left everything to her in his will.    All of his children had moved away prior to his death, and I can find no further information about his second wife; they had no children.    Their children are noted on the Battle Family page, but here are some of their descendants.   Living descendants not posted.

Many thanks to Clyde Wikle for furnishing some of the photos shown on this page!    
Picture of Dr. John P. Hampton standing in front of his Meridianville home.  Seated on the horse is his grandson, also John Placibo Hampton - my great-grandfather.  Then from left to right, front row: Harriet Cecil (Bayou) Hampton, Mary Rebecca (Maibec) Hampton; back row:  Elise (DeeDee) Hampton, unknown, unknown, & Burtie Wyche Hampton.  The children that I can identify are all Dr. John P.'s grandchildren through his son John Manoah.  I can't identify the two young ladies in the middle. Guessing at the age of the children, the photo dates from 1894 or 1895.    (notes of Clyde Wikle)
