LYBARGER, Mrs. Amelia Crum

Mrs. Amelia C. Lybarger, mother of General E. L. Lybarger, died at their home in Spring Mountain Thursday evening at 7 o'clock. She had been gradually sinking from the infirmities of old age and other ailments and her demise was not unexpected. About two years ago Mrs. Lybarger suffered from a hard fall and fractured a hip, since which time she has been partially crippled and was confined to her bed the last two months. The immediate cause of death was senile gangreen with resulting blood poison. The end was peaceful and she passed from earth in sweet, child-like sleep. Amelia Crum Lybarger was born at Winchester, Va. in 1813, and had reached the ripe old age of 89 years. Her father, Lewis Crum, migrated with his family to Ohio in 1820, and was one of the early settlers of Wayne county, Ohio. The ancestors of Mrs. Lybarger were among the first settlers of Virginia. Both her paternal and maternal grandfathers were Revolutionary soldiers. The entire family connection was closely affiliated with the Methodist Episcopal church, and Mrs. Lybarger herself a faithful member of that denomination for more than 70 years. She was married in 1837 to James T. Lybarger, who died in 1864. Since the war of the Rebellion she has made her home with her son, E. L. Lybarger, who is her only surviving child, where she received every care and comfort that loving hands and hearts could minister. Funeral services will be held at the residence Saturday morning at 8 o'clock, and the remains will be taken to Danville cemetery and laid to rest in the family lot there.

LYBARGER, David

Special to the Alleganian, Speelman, Pa., July 6 - It is with profound sorrow that we write of the death of David Lybarger. This sad event occurred on Saturday evening, July 2. Although he hads been ailing for a long time, his death was a great surprise to all, as he had been walking about a few minutes before his death, which was caused by a stroke of paralysis. He was the father of eleven children, eight of whom are living, four boys and four girls, namely, Mrs. F. P. McCoy, Mrs. George Holler, of Speelman; Mrs. William Mickey, of Savage, W. Va.; Mrs. Joe Kring, of Wilkinsburg; Mr. E. E., L. D., John and George, of Speelman. All of the living children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were at the funeral, the services of which were held at the Lutheran church at Madley at 10 a.m. on the 4th instant. Services were conducted by Rev. George D. Gross, pastor of the Lutheran church, of which he was a member of longstanding. Mr. Lybarger's wife died 19 years ago. Grandfather Lybarger had been a soldier of the Civil War, having served in Co. E 49th Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers. There was a surprisingly large number of people at the funeral, as the deceased was well known and greatly respected. It seems that persons from a distance no more closely related than that of being neighbors at one time or another,. but acquaintances attended the funeral in preference to giving their time to the customary festivities of the day. The deceased was eighty years old.
