A Cambria County Soldier Dead

Mr. Griffith Evans, of Cambria township, this county, died at St. Joseph's Hospital, Philadelphia, last week, after a severe and protracted illness. The deceased enlisted in the "Cambria Guards" upon their departure hence almost a year ago and during the intervening period when not prostrated by illness has served in the ranks of that company. He was an estimable young man and highly spoken of by his companions in arms. His remains were brought home on Sunday and on Monday interred in Lloyd Cemetery, whither they were followed by a large concourse of relatives and friends. The deceased was probably twenty-five years of age and unmarried. Peace to his ashes!
