Shellenberger, Menno: Smallpox contracted from refugees at Diarbekir caused the death in that Turkish city of Menno Shellenberger, of Hesston, Kansas, on December 14, 1921. Shellenberger had been transporting supplies by motor-truck from Aleppo, three hundred miles away, to Diarbekir when he became ill.
