He was married to Sarah Elizabeth Winter, who also lived near Darlington. They had a flour mill there and later moved to Red Oak, Iowa, where he operated a flour mill. Later they moved to Elliott, where he was in the banking business for a number of years. Seven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Manker: John, Roy, Orville, Dean, Mary, Fanny Manker Redmon, and Grace Manker Humphrey. All are deceased now.
