Douglas Budget - September 20, 1945Word reached Douglas Wednesday of the death Tuesday of James Cinek, 60, rancher of northern Converse county since 1917. The word came by telephone from a stepdaughter of Mr. Cinek to his ranch partner, Paul Snyder.

He had been in poor health for several years. About two weeks ago he entered the Douglas hospital for treatment and a few days later was sent to Omaha.
His wife died in March, 1931. He is survived by two stepsons and five stepdaughters, all residing in Omaha.
