Glenn Andrew Barnes

Glenn Andrew Barnes fixing watches. He was born March 24, 1889 in Spring Twp., Crawford Co., PA; died Sept. 24, 1934 in Cussewago Twp., PA and is buried in East Spring Cemetery.

Glenn Andrew Barnes was the second son of David P. and Elnora C. Sherrod Barnes (of the Sherrods of Sherrod Hill, Erie Co). He suffered from a progressive crippling of arms and legs while still a young man. He was able to propel a chair with wheels by using his feet. He could rest his arms on a worktable and was able to repair watches and clocks using his fingers. Glenn enjoyed the visits of the many who came to his workshop in the Barnes family home. He died at home of pneumonia at age 45.
