I just found this thread. I can remember some people who died young, but their names escape me. I can remember the circustances but I didn't really know them personally. I'm nearly 65 years old. We left Manila when I was in High School and graduated in Michigan. I've moved back here because I liked it so much.
I remember a young man who was a twin. He died of an accidental gunshot wound in the back of his daddy's truck sometime around '78 0r '79. So sad!
And in '69 there was a girl killed near Floodway by a schoolbus. Her family lived on the ditchbank, but I can't remember the family's name.
Also, can anyone remember the two teens who died of carbon monoxide poisoning in the late '70's? They are buried next to each other in the Manila Cemetery.
On Milligan's Ridge a young girl with a spinal problem died while her mother was at work. They lived near the Mandalay Store. Can't remember her name. That was really sad!
In the late 60's or early 70's the two boys who wrecked on Thrill Hill at Milligan's Ridge after one of the boy's wedding rehearsal. I think his name was McCormick. His Best Man died also.
Who was the doctor's son that drowned at the swimming hole near Floodway?
A Holt boy was killed on Hwy 77 in the early '60s.
Who was the family that lived in a double wide in the wooded area behind Tucker's station who died in a plane crash?
I recall a young man who was practicing football and died of a brain hemorage while going back home on his moped. They hadn't lived in Manila very long before it happened.
Does anyone remember the young man whose car exploded when he was going over Thrill Hill at Milligan? His mom worked at the school.
Who was the Cagle boy that hit the bridge near Leachville and died?
A Manila girl died in a plane crash near Shanio Road between Manila and Dell. I think her sister married a Baker boy.
Sorry I can't remember the names, but I'm sure there are those who can.
I can help with a couple of these, the boy that died with the girl of carbon monoxide was Terry Dehart. The girl with the spinal problem was Bridgette Wilson. the rest of am unsure of I remember my mother talking about the little girl that was ran over at floodway.

As soon as I saw this thread, I thought of Dustin. I'm only 15 but a lot of the names on here stand out for me including Randy King, Stoney, Little John, Roy White, FatCat, and many(too many) others. I only had a few short years with all the guys but my memories, and those of my parents', never let me forget. It's a blessing that they're remembered by so many other folks. God bless all of you kind souls! XOXO
