Hi,

In Pennsylvania deaths were originally records 1852-1854 but then they stopped. They started again in 1893.

The Cambria County Register of Wills/Orphan's Court Clerk does have deaths before Jan 1906 but you'll have to contact them for the specifics.

You might find his newspaper death notice. I'd check out the records at the following:

Cambria County Historical Society, www.cambriacountyhistorical.com/research.htm

Cambria County Library, www.cclsys.org/services_reference.html

Cambria County Obituary Index, www.camgenpa.com/obit/

Johnstown Area Genealogical & Historical Society, www.johnstownroots.org/new-page/

I did look for him in FamilySearch and Ancestry but didn't find him. Successful Searching!
