    Ebensburg Alleghanian, 1 Dec 1864, Contributed by Patty Millich

Frozen to Death

On Tuesday night of last week, a Welsh farmer from the neighborhood of Ebensburg, named Evan Davis, while under the influence of liquor, lay down in one of the alleys of the Fourth Ward, Johnstown, in what is commonly known as Hornerstown, and was so badly frozen that he died on the following evening. It is said that the neighbor heard his cries all night, but inhumanely left him to perish without attempting to remove him. He was not even removed until Capt. Rutledge went to his assistance about half past eight o'clock Wednesday. We gather the foregoing from the Johnstown TRIBUNE.

The remains of the deceased were interred in the Congregationalist cemetery, Ebensburg, on Saturday last. He was aged, we should think, about 45 years. He leaves a family.
