The cause of death seems to be spelled "orbancz", however I do not have a translation for you. Since the death was in 1904, perhaps an older medical dictionary or older (vintage) Hungarian dictionary would be helpful....Jo

I found an Internet site of archaic Hungarian medical terms which shows the following:

The Hungarian word "orbanc" (spelling is slightly different, but same pronunciation) is translated to English as "erysipelas". While I do not know what that cause is, perhaps you can check on that further....Jo
1/8/2013 5:44 AM "Orbánc" is an infectious inflammation of the skin (erysipelas indeed) caused by bacteria belonging to the Streptococcus beta- haemolyticus A group. Quite frequent disease and although it can be cured safely, it is rather unpleasant.
