Obituary of D. K. LORD

Word was received in Protection last week that D. K. Lord had died rather unexpectedly at Pueblo, Colo. Mr. Lord was the father of Mrs. John Cook of Protection.

A quarter century ago, Mr. Lord was a leading ranch man and stockman of this section. However, he left Comanche county about 20 years ago and went to Cimarron county, Oklahoma. He made his home at Kenton, Okla., where he had large business and ranch interests.

D. K. Lord was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, February 12, 1851, and died on March 2, 1923, at Pueblo, Colorado. Burial was held at his home in Kenton, Okla., on Sunday, March 4th. He was married on Jan. 8, 1883, at Quenemo, Kansas to Miss Cora Gibson. To this union were born two sons and two daughters. One daughter, Maude, preceded her father in death
many years ago. The sons, Ed and Fred of Kenton, Okla., and one daughter, Mrs. John Cook, of Protection survive their father.

Mr. Lord was a pioneer of the West; a man of large business interests and among the older settlers of the community who knew Mr. Lord when he lived in Comanche county, many expressions of deep regret at his passing and high regard for him as a true and tried friend of his active life are heard.
