Frederick E. Alt Meets Tragic Death

Former Johnstown Man Dies in Pittsburg from Effects of Blow on Head

He Will Be Buried Here

The funeral of Frederick Edward Alt, a former resident of Johnstown who died in a Pittsburg hospital yesterday morning as the result of injuries sustained in some manner not yet ascertained, will take place at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon and will probably be conducted by the Rev. Hugo R. Erdmann, pastor of Zion's German Lutheran Church. The body has been brought to this city and is now at the Shreir home, Daisytown, where the services will be conducted.

Mr. Alt was found in a semi-conscious condition at Hyde Park, Pittsburg Friday night and it is believed he had been clubbed over the head. An autopsy conducted in Pittsburg revealed a blood clot on the brain. A further investigation, it is thought, will be made by the proper authorities.

Mr. Alt formerly resided in Daisytown, but moved to Pittsburg with his family last year. He was a son of the late Henry Alt and Elizabeth Ludwig Alt, who reside on Plum street, Walnut Grove, and was 35 years of age, having been born November 15, 1879. Ten years since he and Miss Antonia Shreir were married, and he is survived by his widow and four children - Ludwig, Frederick, June Etta, and Anna. In addition to these, Mrs. Alt is survived by his mother and the following brothers and sisters: Justina, wife of Joseph Doris [sic], of Cover Hill; Annie, wife of William Schmidt, of Walnut Grove; Katie, wife of Elmer Marsh, of Daisytown; Charles, John, and William of Walnut Grove.

Mr. Alt was a member of Zion German Lutheran Church and it is hoped to have Pastor Erdmann, who has been attending the synod meeting in Rochester, Pa., return in time to conduct the services.
