I saw your post here and then decided to look around online to see if I could help you with your question. I saw the newspaper article from the Nebraska State Journal for 6-July-1939 which states the sheriff E.T. Salisbury was critically injured in an auto accident. At findagrave there is a page for an Arthur John Salisbury who was sheriff in Lincoln Co. and died 6-July-1939. I think the newspaper may have been incorrect when they reported him as E.T.
