    Notes 
    • Hite, Jacob A.

      The Grim Reaper claimed another in the depleted ranks of the local veterans of the Civil War yesterday morning when Jacob A. Hite of 637 Bedford Street was called to answer the final summons. Mr. Hite's death was due to old age and general debility. He was aged 77 years, 10 months and 20 days, and was born in Bedford County. The deceased served two enlistments in the Civil War, first as a private in Company H, One Hundred Seventy-First Regiment, under Capt. John Bierer. He served about a year in this regiment and when his enlistment expired, entered the service again in Company G, One Hundred-One Regiment, under Capt. Conley. He made his second enlistment in May 1864, and served until the end of the great struggle, in June 1865. Mr. Hite is survived by his widow who was formerly Miss Mary Oldham, and by three sisters: Mrs. J. P. Hasselbauer and Miss Amanda Hite of 806 Oak Street, Seventy Ward, and Mrs. Mary Mock of Hooversville. The deceased was employed until about 20 years ago by the Cambria Steel Company. He left the employment of the steel concerns to take up farming on a place near Hooversville. He lived on the farm until a few years ago, when he retired. The funeral will take place at 1:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the Hite home, 637 Bedford Street, when services will be conducted by the Rev. J. N. Schoes, pastor of the First Christian Church. The services will be in charge of the members of Emory Fisher Post, No. 30 G. A. R., of which the deceased was a member. Burial will be in Sandyvale Cemetery. - Johnstown Democrat.
