"In Loretto, on Wednesday, the 11th inst., Mr. William Ryan Sr., aged about 81. Mr. Ryan was born on Spruce Creek in Huntingdon County, and came to this county when he was a young man, attracted hither, like so many others of our early settlers, in consequence of the erection of a Catholic Church at Loretto, about the year 1800, by the distinguished Dr. Gallitzin, the princely apostle of the Alleghanies. Mr. Ryan was a modest, unassuming gentleman and in all his intercourse with his fellow citizens conducted himself as becomes an honest and high-minded man. How rapidly are the hardy pioneers of Cambria County civilization disappearing from our midst."
