“Hickory Retired Merchant Shoots Himself,” from the Oct. 30, 1917, issue of the Monroe Journal.
Hickory, Oct. 28—J.A. Sellers, aged about 61, retired business man of Hickory, ended his life this afternoon shortly after 2 o’clock by firing a bullet from a 32 calibre revolver into his right temple while alone in the office of Dr. K.A. Price, whom he had called upon in a social way a few minutes previous. At the time the deed was committed Dr. Price was in a café a short distance away and had left the deceased reading a newspaper and apparently in good spirits.
