PAUL, Polly

    Johnstown Tribune, 9 Jun 1865, Contributed by Diann Olsen

HORRIBLE MURDER. -- Just as we go to press we learn that two women, Polly Paul and a daughter of Martin Munday, residing by themselves in Summerhill township in this county, were abused and brutally murdered on Wednesday evening last. The deed was not discovered until Thursday, when the dead bodies of the women were found by the neighbors. A man named John Ream has been arrested and taken to Ebensburg. We have no further particulars. The story seems almost too horrible for belief, but is communicated to us by one of the oldest and best citizens of Jackson township.
