For more than 59 years he resided in Blacklick Township, taking up his residence in Spangler five years ago. The surviving children are: Augustine of Latrobe; Henry of Huber Street, Johnstown; Mary, wife of John Glancie of Conemaugh and Elizabeth, wife of Tony Kosee and Charles, William, Joseph and Albert Farabaugh, all at home. One brother, Leonard, is a resident of Brown County, Minn.
