The Story of Henry Manigo's Freedman's Bank Image
22 Apr 1870 | Tallahassee, FL
In 1870, a man by the name of Henry Manigo/Manijo opens a Freedman's Bank Account in Tallahassee, FL. He lists his place of residence at the time as Lake Jackson. He lists that he served in the military, the 34th Regiment Company D. He is a schoolteacher who was born in 1847 in SC. The individual helping Henry list his complexion as DARK and lists that he has one parent Patsey Jenkins. The remarks include that Henry has no family in FL and that his book was credited 50.00 by mistake and that it should have been 45.00. The clerk goes on to say that Henry wanted change for the five dollar bill and that he blames Henry's asking for this...that caused him to make a miscount. The clerk initials it W.S.
