Amish, Adam Early Monday morning shortly after the midnight hour, death claimed Adam Amish, 62, victim of malaria and heart failure.  Mr. Amish, at the time of his death, was visiting in the home of J. N. Duff, an old friend. His home was in Iowa City, Iowa, which he and his wife left only a short time ago. He was in perfect health when he left and only began to feel sick while en route here.  When he became so ill last week, his two sons were sent for and they were here at the time of the death of their father. The body was shipped Tuesday, back to his old home, Iowa City, for burial. Mrs Amish and her sons accompanied the body.  S. S. Williams Undertaking was in charge.  The Happy Herald, 14 October 1927.

He was found at Ft. Smith, AR and arrested by J. Frank Norfleet, famous cowman‑detective. He was convicted by the Swisher County Jury on the first day of their session, and the trial was set for May 25th, 1927.   The Happy Herald, 3 June 1927.
