EVANS, William W.

    Ebensburg Alleghanian, 26 Feb 1863, Contributed by Patty Millich

Benjamin Davis

We are grieved to have to announce the death in Richmond prison of two more of Cambria's brave sons Sergt. William W. Evans of Co. A, 11th Pa. Reserves and Benjamin Davis of Co. C, 19th Regular Infantry. The former was wounded in the thigh at the battle of Fredericksburg where he fought long and valiantly; the latter on the hotly contested field of Murfreesboro both falling into the hands of the enemy. Sergt. Evans was a resident of this place and leaves a widowed mother and several brothers and sisters to mourn his untimely loss. Young Davis lived in Cambria township.
