      Last Sunday afternoon, September 7, 1913, while on the way home from church together with his family, A.M. Underwood was struck by lightning and was killed instantly. His wife was sitting on the seat by him in a farm wagon, holding a quilt around him to protect him from the rain that was falling when he was struck. No other occupant of the wagon was injured by the bolt.

      Arthur Marion Underwood was born in Leesville, Texas, Dec. 20, 1876, was married to Miss Callie Grobe at Shiner, Texas, October 22, 1902. To this union were born three children: two boys and a girl. He came to OK in October of 1902, at which time he located southwest of this city where he lived until his untimely death. He was converted in early life and united with the ME Church South at the age of fifteen of which church he has been a faithful and consistent member ever since.
