Being sprung from these early pathfinders and tillers of the soil, a love for farming, the joy of the woodland, every phase of the country life was inherent in James Carey. Despite his age of seventy-five years, he took an active part in his extensive farming and lumbering interests, giving personal attention up until a week ago when he was stricken. His death followed a short illness, was a distinct shock to the entire countryside and from Frostburg, where he was very favorably known during his long and useful life.
