|Mr. Peter Flanagan, a respected citizen of Carroll township, died at his residence on Friday, at the advanced age of 96.|
Mr. Joseph Tierney died at his residence in Cambria township the same day (Friday) at the old age of 76 years.
These men both belonged to the class of pioneers who pitched their tents in Cambria county when it was a howling wilderness and notwithstanding difficulties and dangers, hewed out homes for themselves and families. Our first settlers are passing away.
