Constans Cambridge Biography

Constans Cambridge died Aug. 17, 1875, aged seventy-five.

He was a native of Ballymena, County Antrim, Ireland.

At an early age he emigrated to America, landing at Quebec, Canada, after a perilous voyage of over three months.

He traveled to Philadelphia on foot, but on arriving in the city learned his people had emigrated to Centre County, when be was compelled to retrace his steps back by way of Harrisburg and Lewistown through a wilderness of country, but finally found his people located on a farm near the village of Milesburg.

Although receiving a thorough education in his native country, on landing in America he chose the life of peace and quietness, that of a farmer.

He never aspired or held a position politically of any kind, although a resident of Centre County for sixty years, his vote of 1874 being his fifty-first annual vote cast in his adopted county, never having missed a fall election from the date of his naturalization.

In 1853 he removed to Benner township, near the town of Unionville. He was the father of ten children, six sons and four daughters.
