BARR, James P.
|Ebensburg Mountain Sentinel, 3 Jun 1852, Contributed by Lisa Baker
At the residence of his father, Philadelphia, on Wednesday the 26th May ult., JAMES P. BARR, Esq., aged 28 years.
In announcing the above, we do so with sincere feelings of sorrow, pain, and regret. It but a few months since Mr. Barr left this place apparently in good health, and now he lays in the cold embrace of death. In the prime of life and manhood he has been taken away, and his life of usefulness suddenly cut short. He was possessed of a kind, amiable, and obliging disposition, and was endeared to his friends by his many social qualities. In his profession as a lawyer he gave evidence of talent, and much promise, and during his brief residence in this place gained the esteem, respect, and confidence of all who knew him. In the loss of an only son, his afflicted parents may feel assured that they have the sympathies of many in this community.
