The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa Thursday, July 13, 1905 'Another Pioneer Resident Called to His Eternal Home.' ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After suffering intensely for years with diabetes, H.S. GLENN, one of our best known and most highly respected residents, passed peacefully away at his home on Court Avenue on Monday afternoon, July 10, 1905, at 4:40 o'clock. Largely attended funeral services conducted byRev. F.B. Palmer and under the auspices of the G.A.R., were held at the Baptist Church yesterday afternoon at two o'clock. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful, tender messages of love and sympathy. At the close of the services the remains were laid to rest in the Chariton Cemetery. HENRY SHANNON GLENN, son of WILLIAM and MARGARET GLENN, was born in Trumbull County, Ohio, on October 13, 1839. At the age of eight years he moved with his parents to Greenville, Pa. After his school days were over he learned the blacksmith trade. At the opening of the Civil War, he went to the rescue of his country and in September, 1862 became a private of Company B, 76th Pennsylvania Infantry. The regiment was drilled near Camp Curtin near Harrisburg, and in October went on an expedition to Pocotaligo, South Carolina, participating in that battle. During that service he incurred a serious disability which led to his discharge in the following December. He then returned to his Pennsylvania home and joined the State Militia at the time when the movements of the Army which culminated in the Battle of Gettysburg were being pushed forward. He spent sixty days inthat service and then went home. But he was still anxious to serve his country and August 31, 1864 he re-enlisted in the Army as a member of Company M. 6th, Pensylvania Heavy Artillery. He was made sergeant and drill master of the Company and faithfully performed his duties until the close of the war and he was discharged at Fort Ethan Allen in June, 1865. He then went back to his home and his old work of blacksmithing. On February 22, 1866, he was married in Greenville, Pa., to MISS MARIA COOK who survives him. They were the parents of four children, one of whom, MRS. MAY YOST, is now living. EMMA, FRIEND and LUCIUS died in infancy. He is also survived by two brothers and three sisters, JAMES of Chico, Cal., JOHN of Youngstown, Ohio, MRS. LUCY HARRISON of Nashville, Tenn., MRS. SUSANNAH PIERSON of Sioux City, Neb., MRS. TILLIE FAIR of Mercer County, Pennsylvania. In May, 1869, MR. GLENN came to Chariton. He was passing through here on his way to Ringgold and while the train stopped twenty minutes for breakfast he utilized the time by looking for work. He soon found there was a demand for the services of a good blacksmith and in consequence did not return to the train but the same afternoon began work in the shop which still stands near the southeast corner of the square. After working eighteen months he bought out his employers and commenced the manufacture of the "GLENN" wagon and they are now in use in all sections of the United States. In 1893 MR. GLENN sold his business to Garland & Lewis. For the past nine years he has been in ill health and for four years has been confined to his room the greater part of the time. He was twice elected a member of the city council and always discharged his duties in an efficient manner. He was an active member of the I.O.O.F. and of Iseminger Post, G.A.R., and had filled the highest offices in these orders. He had been a devoted and earnest member of the Baptist Church from young manhood and for nearly twenty years had filled the office of deacon. At different times he served as Sunday School Superintendent and teacher. During his long illness he was always cheerful and patient. He was surrounded by a great company of sympathizing friends and many are the kind attentions received. He was a model citizen, progressive and upright, and his death is sincerely and widely mourned. The sorrowing wife and daughter and other relatives have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.
