|WALTERS -- Died at his residence near Chest Springs on Sunday, November 21, 1886, Mr. Joseph Walters, aged 70 years. |
Providence in His all-wise designs, has removed from this present scene of trial and labor, one of Cambria county's most estimable citizens.
Mr. Joseph Walters lived in a sober and godly life, was a man of diligence and faithfulness in all things, tilled his farm, and managed his domestic relations with a calm and steady faithfulness that secured for him the confidence of every neighbor. Having passed the allotted three score years and ten of human life he passed peacefully to that bourne whence no traveler returns.
He was conveyed to his last resting place in the quiet church-yard of St. Augustine, on the 22nd ultimo, a numerous train of friends and neighbors following in mournful respect, evincing their loss by a hearty sorrow.
