Frank A. Wells Dies From Wreck Injuries

Frank A. Wells, 60, of eight miles southwest of Woodward, died Saturday as a result of injuries received when his car collided with an automobile driven by Ernest A. Quickel, route 1, Fargo, near Tangier Saturday. Quickel suffered shock and severe bruises but was released from Memorial Hospital Saturday.

Funeral services for Wells were held at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at the First Methodist church with Rev. George A. Parkhurst, assisted by Rev. D. Allen Pole, officiating. Burial was made in Elmwood cemetery with the Armstrong Funeral home in charge.

The accident, according to Highway Patrolman Jim Holland, occurred at the intersection of two county roads two miles east of Tangier a few minutes after 8 o'clock Saturday morning.

Wells was driving west and Quickel was driving north. Holland said that apparently neither driver saw the other vehicle and the two cars collided. Both automobiles were badly damaged.

The two men were rushed to the hospital where, Holland said, Wells never regained consciousness before his death at 8:12 p.m. Saturday.

Wells, a native of Kansas, came to Oklahoma about 1906, locating on a farm southwest of Woodward where he has remained since that time and was a leader in his community.

On December 18, 1906, he was united in marriage with Miss Hazel Mills at Mankato, Kans.

Survivors include two sons and two daughters, Rev. Cecil A. Wells of Albia, Ia., and Vernon L. Wells, Mrs. Gordon Mott and Mrs. Kenneth Smith, all of Woodward. There are 11 grandchildren. Two brothers and a sister, J. L. and A. E. Wells and Mrs. Frank Alldredge all of Woodward also survive.
