As a result of blood poisoning which developed from a wound caused by a rusty sickle, James L. Eby, well-known retired farmer and Hanover resident, died Saturday evening at 7:20 o'clock at the home of his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Maurice S. Carbaugh, 250 Frederick street. The injury was received several weeks ago while Mr. Eby was cutting weeds near his home. The blade of the sickle accidently inflicted a cut on his left leg above the knee. Little attention was paid to the wound at the time, and it was not till later that his sickness could be traced to the source. The end was hastened by congestion of the lungs.
The deseased was 76 years, two months and 21 days of age. He was born in Frederick county Md., at Rocky Ridge and was the son of the late Christian and Elizabeth (Martin) Eby. When a young man he learned the milling trade which he followed for a number of years; started at the Robert's mill, Taneytown and later running the Otterdale mill on Double Pipe Creek. Later he engaged in farming, retiring 19 years ago when the family moved from Union township, Adams county to Frederick street. Fifty years ago he was married to Miss Susanna Spangler, of near St. James church, Adams county, who prededed him in death two years ago. He is survived by one son, Frank Eby, Union township, and two daughters, Mrs. M. S. Carbaugh, with whom he made his home and Miss Ottie Eby, Frederick street.
