The Cambria Freeman (Ebensburg, Pennsylvania), November 22nd, 1878.

Mr. James H. Benford, proprietor of the Hulbert House, Johnstown, died on last Friday morning, in the 57th year of his age. He was born in Somerset, learned the tanning trade, and after his marriage engaged in the hotel business, having at different periods kept a public house in Indiana, Saltsburg, and Harrisburg. Mr. Benford was a very companionable man, and made hosts of friends wherever he went. He was generous by nature and full of kindness and charity to his fellow men. His wife and several children survive him. His remains were interred in Sandyvale cemetery, near Johnstown, on Sunday, and were followed to their last resting place by an immense concourse of people.
