HONORABLE A.J. SHELHAMER.

A.J. Shelhamer was one of the pioneers of Cloud county and was a good citizen, being one of the most enterprising men in the community. He came with small capital but soon established one of the best farms in the vicinity of Concordia, lying about two miles west of that city.

He did much toward the passing of the herd law and was president of the Agricultural Society, a flourishing body in the early 'seventies.

Mr. Shelhamer organized the first band in the county, buying the instruments while on a visit to his old Michigan home.
