THREE DEATHS

The Result of One Bullet at Stillwell Yesterday Morning

Stillwell, Indian Territory July 12.- Three deaths caused by one pistol bullet is an incident without parallel, but such is the record made here this afternoon, when Joe MORRIS, ex-city marshal of this place, shot and killed Wm ALLISON.

There had been an ill feeling between the two men for some time, growing out of the successful attempt of Allison and others to remove MORRIS from the office of city marshal a few weeks ago.

This afternoon alighted from a west bound train, carrying a valise, and the first man he met was MORRIS Allison, whom he tried to knock down with his valise. In the fight Allison drew a knife and cut MORRIS in the neck, without serious results.

Going to his home, MORRIS secured a 45 caliber revolver, and hunting ALLISON up, fired on him at close range, killing him dead at the first shot.

John SELLERS, a middle aged man who had been afflicted slightly with heart disease, witnessed the shooting, and as ALLISON fell back dead, SELLERS fell to the sidewalk and expired almost instantly.

Mrs. ALLISON, the aged grandmother of MORRIS' victim, lived near, and after ALLISON's body had been carried indoors, some one went to break the sad news to his grandmother. Hardly had they told her of the bare fact of her grandson's death, when she made an effort to arise from her chair, but before she could take a step forward, fell backward into her chair and died without uttering a word.

The trio of deaths resulting under such peculiar circumstance caused considerable excitement, and until after MORRIS was put under arrest great indignation was expressed on all sides.

Hi Georgia,

Thank you again!

As to Howell, it looks like it is Edmund´s wife´s maiden name. And note that the couple named a child "Howell" well William Howell but he used the name Howell as his first name in 1910. Also note that Mary C. Howell Bailey used the name Carrie in 1910. I sure wish people wouldn´t have done that because it makes them hard to find in the censuses. On the other hand it lets us know what their middle names were!!!!

I think the spelling problem and use of nicknames, etc. is the reason I have still not found Margaret Minerva Sellers Ross Sanders in the 1870 census with children Sarah Jane Ellis Ross and Justiana, Irene and Ione Sanders. Have tried using variations of first names and last names and initials and just using birthyears and birthplaces, but to no avail. I was thinking if I could locate them in 1870 it might provide another clue as to a family connection.
