From the "Lyman Leader" March 6, 1958 - Well Known Farmer Found Dead in Field - Arthur (Bud) Kellums, 49, was found dead on his Mirage Flats farm 12 miles south of Hay Springs. He was found dead by a neighbor, Leon Glann, who discovered the body when he noticed that Mr. Kellum's sheep had not been fed. The body was found near a tractor which had slipped off the edge of a irrigation ditch. The body had been caught by lugs of the wheel which had thrown its' tire and rim. Since there were no witnesses the coroner could only theorize how the accident occoured. Neither could the time of the accident be determine but it is believed it was Sunday afternoon or Monday morning. There was no evidence of foul play so no inquest was held. A large wagon was hitched to the tractor, and it was thought the tractor slipped into the edge of the ditch after rounding a corner. How the driver became entangled with the wheel could only be a matter of conjecture. The tractor was not upset but was resting on the axle and the drawbar. "Bud" Kellums was born at Lyman and attended and graduated from school at Morrill. He had attended Union College at Lincoln and the University of Wyoming. He was a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and hay Springs Masonic Lodge #177. Surviving are a son, Jerry of Burwell, his mother, Mrs. John Kellums of Morrill; four brothers, Lockewell of Morrill, Roy of Corpus Christi, Texas, John H. of Downey, California, and Clarence of Lyman; two sisters, Mrs. Maude (Richard) Richardson of Hay Springs and Mrs. Ena (Franz) Wolski of Woodland Heights, California.
