Albert was the son of John Manneman living near Breda and was born August 25, 1891. Up to the time of going into service, July 26, 1918, he was one of the successful young farmers of this county. He was sent with the Carroll county boys to Camp Gordon and sailed with them during the middle of September from Camp Merritt, New Jersey, to France. But taking critically sick on the way over he never landed in France and died while preparing to serve his country.
Accompanied by a soldier from the east his body arrived in Carroll Thursday evening for burial.
