    Ebensburg Democrat & Sentinel, 16 Jun 1858, Contributed by Lisa Baker

A man named Morgan Williams, committed suicide, while laboring under an attack of temporary insanity, in Johnstown, last Wednesday morning. The deceased was until recently, an employee of the Cambria Iron Company, and was a temperate man. The Tribune says that "upon examination it was found that a huge gash was cut in the throat of the deceased, severing the windpipe, which had undoubtedly caused his death. A bloody jack knife, with the blade open, and a pool of blood where the body had fallen, gave evidence that the man had died by his own hands."
