Franklin and Emma (Thuma) Brubaker lost their seven-year -old son in a highly unusual accident. On July 4, 1904, Laban and his older brother took the cream from the Old Line Creamery to Mount Joy. They stopped at a cherry tree at the top of a hill to pick some cherries. The older brother started the team down the hill while tending the brake. At some point he looked back, but he could not see his brother. After stopping the team, he found that his brother had fallen between the wheel and the box of the wagon. Laban was strangled when the wheel caught his head and he was strangled by the brake pole. Help was summoned, but life had expired.
