EVANS, Frederick J.

Frederick J. Evans

It becomes our painful duty to chronicle the death of another of Cambria's brave sons upon the battle field. Frederick J. Evans, who belonged to Co. A, 11th Pa. Reserves was killed in the late sanguinary battle of Gettysburg.

The deceased had been a resident of Cambria township but when the hand of Treason was stretched forth to desecrate the fair temple of liberty he nobly went forth to vindicate the honor of an outraged and insulted country. He laid his life as an offering upon the gory altar of liberty, and she has accepted the sacrifice.

Mr. Evans was a young man of irreproachable character warm hearted and generous - he was beloved by all with whom he was thrown in contact. We sympathize with the family and relatives of the deceased in this deep affliction, but feel assured they mourn not as those who have no hope, but rather looking forward to a glorious reunion "where the wicked cease from troubling, and where the weary are at rest."
