I was told that the name "Manton" is in the Bible, but I haven't found it yet. Someone more knowledgeable may know.

Manton Creek crosses F.M. 350 south of the Bethel Baptist Church and Bold Springs Cemetery. There is a stained glass window in the church in memory of Manton E. (Eddie) Marsh who was one of the founders of the church and Cemetery. He lived at Colita and Livingston in the early 1800's. He is buried, along with his descendents at the Bold Springs Cemetery. I heard years ago that the creek was named after him.
