    Matthew E. McManes, a worthy medical practitioner of Piqua, is one of the younger representatives of the profession, but his years have been no bar to his success. He was born in Galion, Crawford county, Ohio, and is a son of Matthew R. and Louisa (Haas) McManes. His father was a native of Pennsylvania and is now living a retired life in Galion, Ohio, at the age of seventy-five years. His mother passed away in 1884. The Doctor remained under the parental roof during the period of his minority and attended the common schools of Galion, gaining a practical English education, which served as a good foundation upon which to rear the superstructure of professional knowledge. Wishing to become a member of the medical fraternity, he began reading in the office and under the direction of Dr. H. W. Todd, of Galion, who carefully guided his studies for a year. He then entered the Starling Medical College of Ohio, where he remained for two years, when he matriculated in the College of Physicians and Surgeons, of Chicago, being graduated in that institution on the 19th of April, 1898. He also gained practical experience through more than a year's service in the Cook county hospital. In May, 1898, he came to Piqua, where he has since been engaged in continuous practice, his business constantly increasing both in volume and importance, as he has demonstrated his ability to handle complicated cases. The profession accords him a leading place in its ranks and his success is assured. Socially he is connected with Invincible Lodge, No. 176, K. of P., and is a popular young man, having many warm friends in Piqua.
