From the Cambria Freeman August 26, 1869


LEAVY.-- At his residence in Loretto
borough, this county, on Thursday, 19th
inst., MICHAEL LEAVY, Esq., aged 71 years.

Mr. Leavy was born in Allegheny town-
ship in March, 1798, and has continued to
reside in that township and Loretto borough
ever since. He held the office of County
Commissioner for one term, 1836, was commis-
sioned a Justice of the Peace by Gov. Ritner
-- the duties of which office he continued to
discharge without interruption up to his last
illness. A remarkable trait in his character
was his attachment to his own home, and it
is probable that he saw less of the outside
world than any man his age in Cambria
county. He was honest and upright in all
his dealings with his fellow men, an emem-
plary Christian, a devoted husband and a
model father to his children. Honor to his
memory and never-ending peace to his soul.
