|Birth: ||Jul. 19, 1895|
|Death: ||Jul. 8, 1929|
True spirit of achievement was manifested in the career of this fine young man, whose strenuous life, which was characterized by his success, was cut short by his untimely death at the age of thirty-three. A descendant of the well-known Ohio pioneer family, he was born on 19 July 1895 in Rockcreek, Morgan Township, Ashtabula County, Ohio to George B. Halliwill and Mary Elizabeth Cramer, as Glen Clark Halliwill. His older brother, Harry George, began sporadically using Halliwell as his surname in 1913. Glen and Harry began to sign legal documents as Halliwell soon after they completed their 5 June 1917 WW1 Draft Registration cards.
Glen began his role in the workforce as a young lad, laboring as a Lanternman for the B & O Rail Road in Seville at the age fourteen. Becoming familiar with his duties, he learned to appreciate the true dignity and worth of honest toil. His love of the "Rail" encouraged Glen to return to the railroad during war-time. On 5 June 1917, nearly 9000 area men are inducted as the United State enters World War I. Glen registered for service in Kenmore, Summit County, Ohio, at which time, he was an employee of the Akron based Goodrich Tire and Rubber Company. On 11 September 1919, Glen was employed in Sterling, Wayne County, Ohio as a railroad "signal maintenance" worker. Within the next six months (on 16 February 1920), he was one of two telegraphers employed by the Erie Railroad in the same. Between 1923 and 1926, he excepted employment with the Miller (Tire &) Rubber Company on High Street near Cole Avenue in Akron, where he remained employed until his untimely death in 1929.
Glen twice married young southern maidens. His first wife and mother of his four children was the charming maiden Mamie Alice Barton, to whom he married, 27 Oct 1915 in Detroit Michigan; his second Ell "Nora" Jones.
Mamie Alice Barton was a native of Singers Glen, Rockingham County, Virginia, the daughter of Isaac Barton and Mahala Alice Hottinger. On 2 August 1926, while with the couple's fifth child of seven months gestation, Mamie died at the family home situated at 180 Iona Avenue in the city of Kenmore. She was interred at Mound Hill Cemetery in Seville on August 5th. Widowed one year, Glen married Ell "Nora" Jones on 28 August 1927 in Akron, Summit County, Ohio. Glen's life was one of vigor and integrity and while engaged in the vocations to which he remained devoted, he failed to reap the rewards he so richly deserved. He died at Peoples Hospital in Akron, Summit County, Ohio from complications of Pneumonia on 8 July 1929.

It was more than one hundred years ago the story I'm about to relate, | It was in county of Medina in the old Buckeye State. | In the village of Seville, which offered all the good things in life, | Lived George B. Halliwill a sturdy carpenter with Lizzie Cramer his wife. | Three strong boys they had and three darling girls, || Which made their lives a pleasure, bringing to it many thrills. | With the youngest of their sons this story now begins, | For Glen Clark was handsome and manly though just fourteen. || Now, this young man thought if life's battles he'd win, | A trade he must have, ere where to begin. | So he started out for the rail station thinking in his mind, | He'd be a telegrapher if a man he could find. || A man who would hire and teach him the trade, | He could perform meaningful tasks and have it made. | Now, Glen being lucky the place he soon found, | But the time he had to serve the B&O was five years around. || Rubber tires became all the rage, | To Akron Ohio he moved to earn a good wage. | Around that same time, I can not tell you when, | Glen Clark took Mamie Alice, as his young lady friend. || Born in Rockingham Virginia, Summit county was this fair lady's home, | In the distance tall buildings amid great beauty as far as eye could roam. | Her father was a rubber worker and she with hair like golden grain, | And always at the workday's end, her father sat in dire pain. || To this Barton home, for that was their name, | This now hopeful suitor, Glen so often came. | God blessed Isaac and Mahala's home with nine of life's joy to share, | And when a meal was spread there was not an empty chair. || One evening as they sat amid the flowers and vine, | Glen Clark said to dearest Mamie Alice, "Wilt thou only be mine?" | With a heart full of joy and of utterance to give, | She answered him, "I will dear as long as I live." || He said, "For the wedding you had better fix the day," | She said "Soon... now what do you say?" | On 27th October 1915, to Detroit the couple did run, | And after a brief ceremony were pronounced two as one. || Searching for a place in which to call their own, | They traveled to Barberton to make that their new home. | Glen rented a house for his beautiful lady fair, | And the two began to furnish it with the utmost care. || It was in this quaint little home that Helen first saw light of dawn, | Glen left the rubber industry something was terribly wrong. | War was on the horizon, and although he did not enlist, | He registered in Summit county, as the government did insist. || He became an Erie telegrapher, to Sterling they did race. | God sent Robert their first born son to that lovely little place. | To these little children was delivered a baby brother, | Little George, beget at Chippewa Lake, had hair like his mother. || The family removed to Rittman for another daughter was on the way, | Residents of one place, never long did they did stay. | As the months rolled on Mary Alice came to the fold, | When the children were gathered there were four all told. || With a growing family to be cherished and fed, | Glen struggled to cloth them from toe to head. | One day he said to Mamie, "This railroad is such a beast, | And if you are willing we had better back head East." || Excepting employment with Miller Rubber in twenty-four, | Glen and his little Halliwell family moved over to Kenmore. | At one-eighty Iona Avenue the fair Mamie resided for a short spell, | When God called her and an unborn child home to dwell. || Loved by all and departed was their mother, | The children were raised by family members away from one another. | Glen did find a second maiden, in August of twenty-seven they did marry, | But a family of six was to heavy for El Nora Jones to carry. || Twenty-two months later, afflicted with pneumonia, Glen suddenly died, | The family members continued to nurture his children by their side. | Many years have come and gone and changes not a few, | For Glen and Mamie's children left their homes and married two by two. || We the descendants of the couple who's names appear, | Gather together to remember our grandparents so dear. | And now that their children have met inside heavens gate, | It is our time honor Glen Clark Halliwell and Mamie Alice Barton, his mate. || She left this earth in Nineteen twenty-six, he in twenty-nine. | Our grandparents never knew of us or our world so divine. | Today, we must celebrate their lives not their deaths, | And place upon their graves new monuments, in peace shall they rest.
