Death Notice
Frederick News Post - March 11, 1925

The funeral of Maynard Sellman, 39, of near Poolesville, Montgomery County, who committed suicide by shooting himself Saturday afternoon, was held Monday from the home of his brother, Charles Sellman, with interment in a nearby cemetery.

Sellman is well known in this city, having played third base on the old Frederick ball of the Sunset League in 1909.

Word of the death was not received in Frederick until Monday evening, when Richard Nallin, this city, a former team mate of Sellman's, heard of the affair.

Sellman has been in ill health for some time, relatives Tuesday declared, and it is believed he took his life through despondency.

Sellman died by shooting himself through the heart with a shotgun. Death came instantly. He was found in a field by his brother, Charles, and another man.

Prior to the shooting there was nothing to indicate that Sellman contemplated taking his life. While in poor health he was as cheerful as could be expected under the circumstances.

Local persons who knew Sellman said he was a good ball player and that had he been in organized baseball, he would have had good chances of going higher up. He played a fast fame when with the local team years ago.

He was unmarried and is survived by three brothers and two sisters.
