KITCHEN --On Friday last, Mr. Lee
Kitchen, of Olathe, died of the hurt he received a few days before. Mr. K., on the
day he was hurt, was riding one horse and
leading another, when suddenly the horse he
was leading took fright, and pulled back
with such force as to cause the other horse
to rear up and fall on him, fatally injuring
him. He was an industrious young man,
and leaves an aged mother, a sister, and a
younger brother to mourn his untimely
death. We sympathize with his relatives in
this their great affliction. (Olathe News Letter, Nov. 3, 1870)
