(Different obituary, same newspaper, same day.)
The subject of this notice was one of the very oldest citizens of Cambria County. He was born in 1804 in Summerhill Township (then a part of Westmoreland County), on the farm on which he died, and had not been away from it a year put together in his whole life. He was a brother of William Pringle, also of Summerhill Township, who is hale and hearty at the age of ninety-three years. Another brother -- John, the father of Jordan Pringle, formerly of Johnstown -- is now in Tennessee. Mrs. Sara Knepper, of Summerhill Township, over eighty years of age, is a sister. Mr. Pringle is survived by his widow and six children, as follows: Robert of New Florence; Mrs. Maria Paul, South Side, Johnstown; Mrs. Margaret Michaels, of East Conemaugh; Mrs. Bickford, of East Conemaugh; Daniel of Altoona, and Mrs. Jane Hess, of Summerhill Township. Robert is an engineer on the Pennsylvania Railroad, and now runs the Conemaugh shifter. Daniel is a freight conductor on the eastern side of the mountain. Mr. Pringle was a man of strict integrity, and the large attendance at his funeral attested to his popularity with his neighbors, who gathered from far and near to pay the last tribute of respect to his memory.
