I’m working on my new book, a compilation of biographies of Caddo’s most influential citizens of the first fifty years. The more I research certain families, the more I fear I will one day discover that everyone in Caddo is related- at least by marriage! I think it is going to come down to a gene pool based on ten families, and the Mannings will certainly be one of them. lol
The Caddo Herald
February 23, 1923
Mr. Buel Braudrick and Miss Vera Manning were married last Sunday afternoon at Calera by Rev. Frank Naylor, formerly pastor of the Methodist Church here.
They returned home and are making their home here and receiving congratulations of friends.
These are popular young people, both having been reared in Caddo, products of the public school, and altogether are fine young people. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. Manning, is a charming and accomplished young woman. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Braudrick, a young man of energy and good character, and is connected with his father in the meat market business.
Their many friends here will wish them every nuptial happiness.
They were accompanied to Calera by Mr. and Mrs. O. R. Smith and daughter, Misses Mary Laverette, Babe Haley, and Juanita Rogers; Rev. W. B. Slack, Rex Whitt, Morris Beck, and D. O. Nail, Jr.
