Birth: May 14, 1849
Death: Nov. 15, 1903

From the Smith County paper
12 Nov 1903

John Anshutz, Logan township farmer, was shot by a highwayman Monday evening. Mr. Anshutz was returning home from Lebanon when he was accosted about one mile from his home. "Hands Up!" was the command given. The victim handed over $25 in his pocketbook. "You have more then that. I saw you get it today." was the command the robber told him. He did have about the same amount in another pocket. Mr. Anshutz reached across the revolver, which almost touched him, to get the whip to lay it on his horses and in so doing, struck the gun. It went off and the team began to run. The victim's clothing was set on fire by the discharge but he managed to put out the flames and a neighbor stopped the team. A messenger was sent to Lebanon for a doctor. One of the Fair boys, going to Lebanon, Tuesday, found the empty purse about two miles south of where the robbery took place. He said it was given him by two immigrants in a cowered wagon who found it at the approach of White Rock bridge. Doctors Dykes of Lebanon, Slagle of Smith Center and Morrison of Womer were summoned. An operation revealed that the intestines had been severed in two places and the patient was very weak from loss of blood. He died the following Sunday.
