Son of Emanuel Clements & Martha Hardin Clements. Wife Molly Ann Robinson.Emanuel Clements was also known as Manning, Mannen & Mannin. Emanuel was killed at the Senate Sallon in Ballinger, Tx.,by City Marshall Joe Townsend on March 29, 1887. He became a candidate for Sheriff for the new county of Runnels, just prior to him being killed. Emanuel was one of John Wesley Hardin's closest friends & 2nd cousin. He was involved in the Taylor-Sutton feud, on the Taylor side The April 2, 1887, edition of The Ballinger Eagle reported Emanuel Manning Clements II was killed in a gunfight at the Alamo saloon in Ballinger, Runnels Co., Tex.:
"Manning Clements Killed. A pistol shot was heard near night Tuesday afternoon in the Alamo saloon on 7th street, and it was soon learned that the ever-present six-shooter had got in its deadly work on Manning Clements, a stockman of McCulloch county, who has been in Ballinger several weeks shipping stock. Clements was a first cousin to John Wesley Hardin, and like the noted John Wesley had spent more than one man to his long home. For the last several years had led a quieter life than in his younger days, having married and settled down. The evidence taken at the inquest by Judge Hargrove Tuesday night and Wednesday morning discloses substantially the following facts: Deputy Sheriff Joe Townsend, Sheriff Formwalt and Manning Clements were in the Alamo saloon. The two latter had been drinking, and Formwalt had fired off his pistol in Hamilton and Conner's saloon a short while before. Townsend was endeavoring to secure his pistol. Formwalt was drawing his pistol, and Townsend had seized it, when Clements with an oath ordered him to stop, and was leveling a pistol which he had in the meantime drawn, on Townsend. Retaining his hold upon Formwalt's pistol, Townsend instantly fired, the ball entering about an inch above Clement's left eye, ranging backward and upward. Clements fell to the floor in a sitting posture and immediately expired. His pistol was in his hand at full cock after he died, showing in all probability Townsend only escaped death by depriving Clements of his life. The Odd Fellows, of which society he was a member took charge of the body and prepared it for interment and expressed it to the home of the dead man. He leaves a wife, one daughter and son" (Vol. 5, No. 31 Whole No. 239).
Mother Martha is sister to John Wesley Hardin, son of a preacher, who was Texas' deadliest outlaw after the Civil War. Hellen Effie Bramlette Clements' brother Pat Bramlette joined the Hardin Gang and he was later killed in Kansas in a saloon shootout in 1892. The Bramlettes are children of Louisa Mariah "Louise" "Lou" Thomas and Mack Henry "McHenry" Bramlette of Bedford County, Va., and Frio Co., Tex
