|Jacob W. Pringle.|
Jacob W. Pringle, a Civil War veteran, died yesterday afternoon at his home, No. 777 Park avenue, Moxham, after an illness of general debility, lasting some time, aged seventy-four years, two months, and eight days.
The deceased was born in the vicinity of Summerhill, this county, where he had for many years been engaged in farming. His father was one of the pioneer settlers of Cambria County, having come here at the time Indians were still roving the hills of this place. He died fifteen years ago at the age of ninety-eight years. His wife, whose maiden name was Mary Tredennick, died two years ago. No children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Pringle. Mrs. Christina Fleck, of Altoona, and Mrs. Margaret Lowman, of Moxham, are the only surviving sisters of Mr. Pringle. Alexander Pringle, father of Dr. W. N. Pringle, was a brother of the deceased.
Jacob Pringle, with his father and several brothers, served in the Rebellion from 1861 to 1865. The deceased and his brothers were soldiers in Battery D, Fifth Heavy Artillery, under the captaincy of the late Webster B. Lowman.
The funeral will be held at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon with the services in charge of the Rev. Shaw, pastor of the Moxham U. B. Church. Interment will follow in Sandyvale Cemetery.
