IRON COUNTY REGISTER, Ironton, Iron Co. MO, Thurs. June 7, 1917

A correspondent at Bixby, in the west end of the county, writes us under date of June 1st: "Jack and Archie Minor were struck by lightning and instantly killed Sunday evening. Ivory Minor was knocked from the barn loft, where they were playing, but was not hurt badly. Jack was fifteen and Archie twelve years of age. Both boys were strong and hearty, and it is truly a pity that they should be stricken in the springtime of life just as they could have become of use to themselves and others. It pained me greatly to hear of their sad death, and to their bereaved relatives and friends I extend my sincere sympathy."
