From the Feb. 6, 1941 News Record:

An item suitable fore the “Strange As It Seems” column came to light here this week. Two men, within five months of the same age, same color hair and eyes, approximately the same weight with the same name, yet no relation, discovered for the first time they would have to use their middle initial more often from now on. They are Howard Spellman of Spotted Horse and Howard Spellman, an employee at the American ranch, north of Gillette. The name is rather unusual, yet neither knew the other lived in this county until they were brought together last week. Each has a sister with the name Helen. A check-up of families for the past two generations revealed no relationship. Both are married and have no children.
