Death Record of HENRY SHANNON GLENN
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
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.
