Dr. I.E. FOSTER was called to Pleasant View chapel
neighborhood Monday morning to attend nine horses and mules,
some of which were severely cut on neck and shoulders when
they ran into a barb wire fence during the eletctrical storm
Sunday evening. The animals are owned by Roy SELLERS. Four
of them were severely cut on the cruel wires, one of the
wounds in a mule's shoulder requiring thirty-six stitches.
In all nearly one hundred stitches were taken. The animals
became frightened at the storm and stampeded into the wire
fence.

family to a farm near Perry, Kansas. He was married in 1872 to Elmine S.

Perry which was his home for forty-one years. Here six children were born.

Alexander Jackson Sellers died on October 26, 1930, in Ozawkie Township, Jefferson County, Kansas, and was buried in Fairview Cemetery.  He sometimes went by "A.J. Sellers" as well as "Jack" Sellers.  I'm looking for his Obituary and would love to know if one was published for him.

If some kind soul that has access to such things could find his Obituary, I would greatly appreciate learning of it.

Thanks!
