Manton Historical Events

1939, November 8
Richard Glenn Charnes was born in an out building on a farm on the first road to the west south of town. My father was Farwell Glenn Charnes and my Mother was Marion Louise {Ames}Charnes. I went from those humble beginnings to the lofty Accomplishments of A Husband, Father, Grandfather. I am A veteran of the U.S.Air Force and a graduate of Gaylord High School,in Gaylord Michigan. I Graduated from HVAC School, and I am the Father of 13 Children and the Grandfather of 35 Grandchildren. It is my opinion that November 8 1939 was truly an Historic Day in Mantom Michigan. I hope you enjoy these ramblings of a sentimental Senior Citizen.
