Danna, John
John Danna – Colorado Springs Gazette – May 15, 1926 – Two Men Killed in Outbreak of Pueblo's Ancient Blackhand War – Danna Brothers Shot Down from Closed Automobile as They Stood on Street; Posses Closing in on Quartet of Slayers Trapped in Coal Camp Near Walsenburg – Pueblo, Saturday, May 15 (AP) – Two men are dead and a third wounded in the most recent outbreak of Pueblo's Blackhand war. Two brothers, the third of one family, were fatally wounded yesterday afternoon by assassins and an innocent bystander was wounded by a stray shot. Pete and Tony Danna died last night. They were shot down at 1:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon when they were standing in front of a pool hall in the heart of the business district. Sam English, owner of the pool hall, was shot in the leg. Capture of the murderers is regarded as certain by officers at an early hour this morning for the occupants of the murder car are said to be trapped in a coal camp near Walsenburg and posses from three cities are closing the net drawn around the murderers' rendevous. Late developments last night indicated without a doubt, police and the sheriff said, that the killing was a result of the blackhand war of many years' standing. The murder car, a Hudson coach with curtains drawn, passed slowly in front of the pool hall where the Danna brothers were standing, and shot from sawed-off shotguns cut the brothers down before they had time to draw their own weapons. Doctors in attendance stated that both of the men had received from 30 to 40 shot, the bodies being literally torn to pieces from the heavy charge. Their brother, John, was killed in July, 1925, in an alleged blackhand killing but no arrest had ever been made in that case. The two killed yesterday were said to be leaders of the same faction as Frank Bacino, murdered in Denver a short time ago. Pete Danna was out on $10,000 bond in connection with the notorious black hand battle near Baxter, Colo., in September, 1922, in which John Ingo, Dominio Ingo and Charles Carlino were killed. Carlino was a brother of Sam Carlino, one of the four men Pete Danna alleged to have been in the automobile from which the shooting was done Wednesday. Colorado Springs Gazette – May 16, 1926 – Death Tally Five Each - Pueblo, May 15 - With the killing of the two Danna brothers Friday Pueblo's black-hand war has accounted for 10 men in a short span of years, and the count is even, both sides having killed five. Such is the statement today, by one of the recognized leaders of the Sicilians of this city, who characterized the Bacino murder in Denver as a move in Pueblo's war, which originated over liquor troubles shortly after Colorado went dry. The Sicilian told an Associated Press representative today that up until the time of the killing of John Danna in the summer of 1925, that faction had lost but one man, Joe Piscopo, husband of the woman now held for the murder of Frank Bacino. Bacino's murder followed and then the killing yesterday, which brought the total to five. The first killing in the war was that of one Pete Viola, who was shot in Bessemer while riding on his delivery wagon. This man belonged to the faction blamed for yesterday's killing. A Carlino and a Mulay, relatives of those named in dying statements of the Dannas as their slayers, were killed and then this faction imported two gunmen. Both of these were killed. Two men, Pete Walker and Pete LaRocco, were added to the deathbed list as occupants of the cars. These men are both strangers in this city. Inquest has been set for Monday afternoon.

Pete Danna - Colorado Springs Gazette - May 15, 1926 - Two Men Killed in Outbreak of Pueblo's Ancient Blackhand War - Danna Brothers Shot Down from Closed Automobile as They Stood on Street; Posses Closing in on Quartet of Slayers Trapped in Coal Camp Near Walsenburg – Pueblo, Saturday, May 15 (AP) – Two men are dead and a third wounded in the most recent outbreak of Pueblo's Blackhand war. Two brothers, the third of one family, were fatally wounded yesterday afternoon by assassins and an innocent bystander was wounded by a stray shot. Pete and Tony Danna died last night. They were shot down at 1:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon when they were standing in front of a pool hall in the heart of the business district. Sam English, owner of the pool hall, was shot in the leg. Capture of the murderers is regarded as certain by officers at an early hour this morning for the occupants of the murder car are said to be trapped in a coal camp near Walsenburg and posses from three cities are closing the net drawn around the murderers' rendevous. Late developments last night indicated without a doubt, police and the sheriff said, that the killing was a result of the blackhand war of many years' standing. The murder car, a Hudson coach with curtains drawn, passed slowly in front of the pool hall where the Danna brothers were standing, and shot from sawed-off shotguns cut the brothers down before they had time to draw their own weapons. Doctors in attendance stated that both of the men had received from 30 to 40 shot, the bodies being literally torn to pieces from the heavy charge. Their brother, John, was killed in July, 1925, in an alleged blackhand killing but no arrest had ever been made in that case. The two killed yesterday were said to be leaders of the same faction as Frank Bacino, murdered in Denver a short time ago. Pete Danna was out on $10,000 bond in connection with the notorious black hand battle near Baxter, Colo., in September, 1922, in which John Ingo, Dominio Ingo and Charles Carlino were killed. Carlino was a brother of Sam Carlino, one of the four men Pete Danna alleged to have been in the automobile from which the shooting was done Wednesday. Fairplay Flume – September 3, 1926 – Pueblo – Evidence to prove a complete alibi will be offered by the three alleged Danna slayers who surrendered to police, it was announced here by attorneys for the three. (They are) Pete Larocco, Pete Carlino and Carlo Mulay, who are charged with shooting down the two Danna brothers as they stood before a soft drink parlor on May 14 last. Colorado Springs Gazette – May 16, 1926 – Airplanes Hunt Pueblo Blackhand Slayers in Mountains Near Aguilar - Cordner and Pace, Mail Flyers, Aid Law in Search for Gang Who Shot Down Two Brothers on Streets of Smelter City; 10 Dead in "War" Up to Date - Pueblo, May 15 - Two airplanes, engaged for several hours in hunting down an alleged Backhand gang in the rugged mountain region, near Aguilar, south of here, returned to this city tonight without finding any trace of the alleged slayers of Pete and Tony Danna, who were shot and killed here yesterday afternoon within a block of the heart of the local business district as the two brothers stood on the sidewalk in front of a pool hall. Sam Danna, a third brother escaped a similar fate, because he remained in his automobile at the curbing. The murderers fled southeast from Pueblo thru a thinly populated section of the country, past the wilds of Rattlesnake Buttes to Aguilar, east of Trinidad. Saturday afternoon two airships took off from the local flying field, carrying a machine gun, tear bombs and heavily armed occupants. Lieut. Floyd A. Pace was at the controls of the first plane, accompanied by a local newspaper man. The second ship carried Captain Cordner and Lieut. W.W. Messmore, Colorado National Guard flying officers. Carried Tear Bombs - Winding their way south from Pueblo, the flyers searched the wild, rugged region near Aguilar and after communicating with Sheriff Harry Capps in Walsenburg, flew to El Moro, a desolate spot where the "29th Day of July" saloon stands. This old saloon is said to be a black-handers' hangout and back in the early days an Italian priest was slain there on the date indicated in the name of the place. In this region the flyers had no chance to land without wrecking but heavily armed with rifles and revolvers and with tear bombs ready they circled low over the rugged hills scanning the earth with powerful field glasses in vain. The men who are the object of the sensational man hunt are Carlo and John Mulay, Pete and Sam Carlino, Pete Laroco and Pete Walker, all named in a statement by the Dannas as having participated in the shooting. Plans were under way tonight by peace officers at Trinidad and Walsenburg to organize posses tomorrow for a thoro search of the El Moro district. Colorado Springs Gazette – May 16, 1926 – Death Tally Five Each - Pueblo, May 15 - With the killing of the two Danna brothers Friday Pueblo's black-hand war has accounted for 10 men in a short span of years, and the count is even, both sides having killed five. Such is the statement today, by one of the recognized leaders of the Sicilians of this city, who characterized the Bacino murder in Denver as a move in Pueblo's war, which originated over liquor troubles shortly after Colorado went dry. The Sicilian told an Associated Press representative today that up until the time of the killing of John Danna in the summer of 1925, that faction had lost but one man, Joe Piscopo, husband of the woman now held for the murder of Frank Bacino. Bacino's murder followed and then the killing yesterday, which brought the total to five. The first killing in the war was that of one Pete Viola, who was shot in Bessemer while riding on his delivery wagon. This man belonged to the faction blamed for yesterday's killing. A Carlino and a Mulay, relatives of those named in dying statements of the Dannas as their slayers, were killed and then this faction imported two gunmen. Both of these were killed. Two men, Pete Walker and Pete LaRocco, were added to the deathbed list as occupants of the cars. These men are both strangers in this city. Inquest has been set for Monday afternoon. Colorado Springs Gazette 8-23-1926 - Three of Pueblo's Mafia Surrender - Only Two of Alleged Danna Slayers at Liberty; Had $3,500 Price on Heads - Pueblo, Aug. 22 - Another sensational chapter in the history of the Mafia "blackhand" rum war in Pueblo was written today when Pete Carlino, Carlo Mulay and Vita (Pete) La Rocco, alleged "blackhand" members of the warring Mafia factions in Pueblo, with the price of $3,500 on their heads, surrendered themselves to S.E. Thomas, sheriff of Pueblo county, at 7 o'clock this morning. The three men refused to talk, intimating that no statements would be made. At 1:30 p.m. May 14, a large "death car" drove thru the business district, stopping for an instant in front of the Monte Carlo pool hall to pour a hail of lead slugs, fired from sawed-off shotguns, into the front of the building. Standing there were Tony and Pete Danna, who slumped to the sidewalk even before the machine had time to move on. Sam English, standing within the establishment, received a number of slugs in the right leg. Deathbed statements, made at the hospital before officials the next day, named Pete and Sam Carlino, Carlo and John Mulay and "Pete" La Rocco as their slayers. Large posses searched the hills for weeks without results. An executive proclamation placed a reward of $2,500 on their heads, in addition to $1,000 offered by Pueblo county. Sam Carlino and John Mulay are still at large, with prices on their heads. The score between the Danna faction and the opposing faction is now even, it is said. Prior to this last double killing and the slaying of an alleged Sicilian "blackhander" some time ago in Bessemer, on the south side of the city, it was said that the count stood five in favor of the Dannas, one on records for the opposition.

Davey, Daniel Richard
Daniel Richard Davey - The Orange County Register - April 10, 2003 – Danny Davey was born Oct. 11, 1925, Pueblo, CO and died: April 8, 2003, Santa Ana, CA. His survivors: Wife, Peggy; sons: Daniel, Tim; brothers: Raymond, Lester; one grandchild. Services: were held in San Diego with arrangements by Rose Hills Mortuary. Costa Mesa. When Danny Davey became one of former President George Bush's 1,000 Points of Light in 1991, he called it "a high point of my life." But he wasn't referring to the award as much as to the honor of shaking the hands of a president and first lady. Danny rarely took credit for the years of volunteer work he did on behalf of American Indians on reservations in Arizona. "It's not really my award," he said the night he was named Point of Light No. 628. "It belongs to all the people who help me." That's partly true, of course. But Danny was the driving force behind the project he started in 1948. He's the one who rented the trucks (sometimes as many as half a dozen per trip", who rounded up volunteers and donations, and who drove 18 hours to take Thanksgiving dinners and food, clothes, blankets and general supplies to the reservation two or three times a year for more than 50 years. Danny's passion for helping the Indians was so much a part of the Daveys' family life that wife Peggy once said, "It's like getting up and brushing your teeth." She couldn't imagine life without Danny's treks to the Southwest. They sometimes had too many donations stacked up in their Santa Ana living room that they couldn't see out the front windows. Once, he got so many donated oranges that they filled three railroad boxcars. On April 8, the day he died of a heart attack, Danny, 77, was on his way to Wheeler's Sewing Machine Center in Santa Ana to pick up donated sewing machines he planned to take to the reservations. A native of Pueblo, CO, he decided when he was in the Navy during World War II that if his life was spared, he'd devote himself to helping others. After surviving a kamikaze attack and watching his brother's ship go down in front of him, Danny started seeking ways to give back. While driving to Colorado one day, he passed through Navajo country and was shocked by what he called "terrible conditions of those full-blooded Americans." Helping them became his life's work. To support his family – and his passion – he drove a delivery truck for UPS, a job he loved for its constant interaction with people. Danny was a small, compact man with amazing stores of energy who chomped a cigar, wore a cowboy hat and never met a stranger. He could, and would, talk your ear off. In fact, he could hardly bear to be without someone to talk to every waking minute. He had a wonderful grin and a winning way about him that made it hard for anyone to turn down his request for donations. Several women's groups got into the act, along with many individuals. When people learned of Danny's project, then met Danny, they wanted to be part of it. He rounded up whatever the Indians said they needed, but he was especially depended upon to take them turkeys and all the trimmings for Thanksgiving. Finally, he and friend Bud Hohl set up the nonprofit Thunderbird Foundation through which they processed donations. Danny's survivors are working out how to keep the foundation going. It's not cheap, and Danny funded most of the work himself. One trip with a couple of large truckloads could cost $9,000 – much of that for truck rental. The Indians called Danny "Road Runner" because they said he didn't stay very long and just kept going. But he had to. There was just so much to be done. His efforts didn't go unnoticed. In addition to being named a Point of Light, he was featured on Ralph Edwards' TV show, "This is Your Life," in 1958 and received a Norman Vincent Peale America's Award in 1995. Danny was appreciative but all he really wanted was to make the Indians happy. For him, no award could measure up to the smiles on the Indian children's faces when he lined them up and handed out candy, or the gratitude in the women's eyes when he showed up with hundred of clean barrels for water. "You don't have to be somebody to help somebody," he said. "Just reach out and do it."

Davidson, John W.
John W. Davidson - Westland News - September 28, 1916 - The death of Hon. John W. Davidson, district attorney of this district, at Pueblo last Friday, has saddened this entire community. He had been ill for the past year, and for several weeks in a hospital. Mr. Davidson was regarded highly wherever he was known, and was truly a fine example of a cultured Christian gentleman. He occupied a high place in his profession and was universally admired by hosts of friends. Bayfield Blade – October 6, 1916 – District Attorney Davidson Dead – Pueblo – John W. Davidson, district attorney of the Tenth Judicial District, died here. Mr. Davidson was president of the District Attorneys' Association of Colorado and had served for the last eight years as district attorney of this district. He was formerly county attorney of Saguache County, where he served four years. Pueblo Chieftain – January 30, 1917 – Former District Attorney is Eulogized by Lawyers – Pueblo County Bar Association Adopts Resolutions For Late John W. Davidson – Outside Attorneys Here For Meeting – A fitting testimonial to the late John W. Davidson and resolutions of condolence were adopted yesterday morning at a meeting of the Pueblo County Bar association held in the district courtroom of Division A at the courthouse. The meeting was presided over by Judge F. R. McAliney, president of the association and was attended by a large number of the members as well as a number of attorneys being present from the other counties of the 10th judicial district. The testimonial and resolutions were offered by a committee consisting of M. G. Saunders, S. R. Durham and W. L. Hartmen (Hartman?), appointed at a meeting held the week of Mr. Davidson's death to prepare them and to present them at some future date. The testimonial and resolutions follow: "On September 22, 1916, at St. Mary's hospital in the City of Pueblo John W. Davidson, a member of the bar, after a long and brave fight against an unyielding malady, surrendered his generous spirit to the God who gave it, and in consequence, the hearts of the members of this bar, in common with his numerous other friends, are weighed down in grief and sorrow. However, the sorrow felt at the loss of a dear friend and an honored associate is greatly softened when in all good conscience we can say of him 'Well done, good and faithful servant,' and in so paying our humble tribute to the memory of our departed brother we are consoled by the happy thought that we can and do speak of one having met the responsibilities of life with courage and discharged them with fidelity and honor, was entitled to enter upon the rewards which we believe come to those who weary not in well doing. Came to Colorado – Mr. Davidson was born in Hickory county, Missouri, February 13, 1870, was admitted to the bar in 1891, and practiced law in his native state until 1897, when failing health caused him to seek a change of climate and he came to Colorado. He located at Saguache, and during his stay there he served as county attorney. He later came to Pueblo and was soon selected by Judge S. Harrison White as one of his assistants, which position he held until 1908, when he succeeded to the office of district attorney and to which office he was re-elected in 1912 and was holding at the time of his death. While we recall with respect and admiration his profound knowledge of the law and the strength and clearness of his reason, we dwell with especial pleasure upon those qualities of heart and mind, the broad sympathy and the irrepressible sense of justice which enabled him to appreciate and give due weight to the meritorious features of both sides of a controversy, and made him – what he in fact was – a fair and fearless public servant. He was a man of high ideals, but his innate modesty never permitted him to believe that he had attained them. He cared little for outward evidence of success, and, although desiring and appreciating the approbation of his fellows, he found his highest compensation in the approval of his own conscience. He was a believer in the Christian religion and a consistent member of the Church and endeavored to fashion his life in accordance with the prospects and example of the Lowly Nazarene. His sympathetic nature coupled with the simplicity and beauty of his character made a charming personality which delighted all those fortunate enough to have been brought within the circle of his acquaintance. The same qualities made him an affectionate and devoted husband and a fond and indulgent father. It may well be said of him that he was never absorbed in any selfish aims or purposes and that his influence was deep and uplifting and kept before those who came within its range the high ideals which gave a tone of unselfish sweetness to human existence. Lost Upright Lawyer – Resolved, Therefore, That in the death of John W. Davidson the bar and people of Pueblo county have lost an able, learned and upright lawyer, and a fair, honest and fearless public servant, whose life work and worth at the bar and in the public service have made a deep and lasting impression for the good in the community in which he lived. Resolved, Further, That these heartfelt expressions of our love and esteem for him; our commendation for the purity, simplicity and usefulness of his life; our respect for his memory; and our sense of loss which we have, one and all, sustained in his death, be preserved by being spread upon the records of our association, and that a copy be presented to the district and county courts of the county with the request of the Pueblo Bar association that it be spread upon the court records, and that a copy be furnished to the bereaved widow and son. M. G. Saunders, W. L. Hartman, S. R. Durham."

Davis, Frances K.
Frances K. "Francie" Davis - Huerfano Journal - January 8, 2009 - Frances K. "Francie" Davis passed away December 30, 2008. Born Mary Francis Killion to Mary Margaret (Shannon) and Claude E. Killion on July 16th, 1932 in Las Animas, Colorado. Raised in southern Colorado in a ranching life, Francie was the first Spanish Peaks Fiesta Queen in 1946. The family moved to the Greenhorn Mountain Ranch in 1950. She graduated from Huerfano County High School in 1951 and attended Colorado A&M (CSU), Fort Collins for one year, before returning to Huerfano County and a position in the telephone office as an operator. She started dating Marvin Davis after losing a political bet to him over the projected outcome of the 1953 county sheriff's race. Francie and Marvin were subsequently married in the Methodist Church of Walsenburg on June 6, 1954. She continued in her telephone operator position while Marvin ranched with his father, Arthur Davis, east of Walsenburg. Their first child, Gena Sue, was born in April of 1955. The family purchased and moved to the current farm and ranch headquarters, east of Walsenburg, in 1956. Jill Ann was born the same year. Claudia Gaye joined the crew in 1958 and Jesse Scott followed in 1960. Francie spent the ensuing years in partnership with Marvin raising their family, managing the farm and ranch operations, and becoming renowned for her baking and cooking abilities. There was never a stranger at the Davis table. A place was set and guests were treated to a fare that was unequaled and unforgettable. The question was not whether you wanted pie for dessert, but what kind of pie. Francie would take special orders for Pecan Pie, her specialty, Chokecherry Jelly and ... the list goes on and on. For a number of years, Francie was an aide and secretary in Walsenburg schools. She served throughout her life in the community helping to form the Huerfano Fire Protection District, supporting school district functions and church activities. Always a proponent and vocal advocate of the ranching life, she served as secretary/treasurer of the fair and rodeo association, leader and fund raiser for the county 4-H and a lifetime member and officer of Cowbelles. Recently her energy and attention were spent closely following the political wrangling surrounding the proposed expansion of Fort Carson's Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site and its impact on the ranch. Although her courage and strength were challenged with a battle with leukemia, Francie's sense of humor and approach to life was never lost. She was preceded in death by her father, Claude Killion in 1957, her mother Mary Margaret "Madge" Killion, in 1986, her sister, Jeanette Salmon Jackson Wright and her brother, Billy Scott Salmon. She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Marvin J. Davis, children Gena (Lyle) Kenner of Linton, North Dakota; Jill Davis Homerding, C. Gaye Davis and J. Scott Davis of Walsenburg; four grandchildren, Katelin Renee Davis, Denver; Kelsey Michelle Davis, Colorado Springs; Hallie Ann Homerding and Billy Scott Carruth, Walsenburg; a nephew, Larry Scott Jackson, Sonora, California; special brother and sisters-in-law, cousins, extended family and a lifetime of friends.

His joy was complete with the two Super Bowl wins, and he was looking forward to this year's threepeat. George was a veteran of WWII, having served in Iwo Jima, so when our new Colorado State Veterans Home, here in Walsenburg, became a reality, he always said he wanted to spend his last years there. He moved to the home in February of 1998, where all the nurses and staff fell in love with his orneriness. He loved all of them, and his special nurses on the hospital side also.

Davis, J. F. (Daughter of)
Daughter of J. F. Davis - Pueblo Chieftain - July 21, 1920 - Child Drowns; Father Is Dying - Babe Falls in Irrigation Ditch While Mother is Nursing Typhoid Victim - The two year old daughter of J. F. Davis, employed on the ranch of James P. Harbour, county commissioner, was drowned yesterday afternoon in an irrigation ditch that crosses the yard in front of the ranch house, located five miles east of this city on the South Vineland road. Davis, who came to Colorado form Texas some time last spring, has been employed by E. F. Sackman, renter of the Harbour property since his arrival. For some weeks past, he has been suffering with a severe attack of Typhoid fever. He rallied a few days ago, and then had a serious relapse, and is at present in a critical and unconscious condition. His wife was busy attending him, and left the baby girl, Edith Viola, in charge of her 6 year old brother, Earl. The tiny footprints at the edge of the ditch tell the tale of the tragedy. The stream flows in and easterly direction, and is about four feet wide and six feet deep in some places. The child's body was found caught under a bridge which gives access to the main road from the house. A nail had caught in her clothing, in a manner which held her suspended, head downward, in the stream. The body was found about 30 minutes after the child entered the water it is thought. Mrs. W. L. Farmer, who runs a small store near the Harbour place, came to the assistance of the mother and Sackman, who rushed the child, in care of Mrs. Farmer, to a local hospital in Pueblo. Pulmotor and other means of revival were applied, but in vain. The tragedy is all the more deplorable because of the serious condition of the father. Davis is said to be in such a poor state of health that they dare not tell him of the loss of his child.

Memorial services are pending. Boies-Ortega Funeral Home. Huerfano Journal - January 8, 2009 - Frances K. "Francie" Davis passed away December 30, 2008. Born Mary Francis Killion to Mary Margaret (Shannon) and Claude E. Killion on July 16, 1932 in Las Animas, Colorado. Raised in southern Colorado in a ranching life, Francie was the first Spanish Peaks Fiesta Queen in 1946. The family moved to the Greenhorn Mountain Ranch in 1950. She graduated from Huerfano County High School in 1951 and attended Colorado A&M (CSU), Fort Collins for one year, before returning to Huerfano County a position in the telephone office as an operator. She started dating Marvin Davis after losing a political bet to him over the projected outcome of the 1953 county sheriff's race. Francie and Marvin were subsequently married in the Methodist Church of Walsenburg on June 6, 1954. She continued in her telephone operator position while Marvin ranched with his father, Arthur Davis, east of Walsenburg. Their first child, Gena Sue, was born in April of 1955. The family purchased and moved to the current farm and ranch headquarters, east of Walsenburg in 1956. Jill Ann was born the same year. Claudia Gaye joined the crew in 1958 and Jesse Scott followed in 1960. Francie spent the ensuing years in partnership with Marvin raising their family, managing the farm and ranch operations, and becoming renowned for her baking and cooking abilities. There was never a stranger at the Davis table. A place was set and guests were treated to a fare that was unequaled and unforgettable. The question was not whether you wanted pie for dessert, but what kind of pie. Francie would take special orders for Pecan Pie, her specialty. Chokecherry Jelly and…the list goes on and on. For a number of years, Francie was an aide and secretary in Walsenburg schools. She served throughout her life in community helping to form the Huerfano Fire Protection District, supporting school district functions and church activities. Always a proponent and vocal advocate of the ranch life, she served as secretary/treasurer of the fair and rodeo association, leader and fund raiser for the county 4-H and a long-time member and officer of Cowbelles. Recently her energy and attention were spent closely following the political wrangling surrounding the proposed expansion of Fort Carson, Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site and its impact on the ranch. Although her courage and strength were challenged with a battle with leukemia, Francie's sense of humor and approach to life was never lost. She was preceded in death by father Claude Killion in 1957; mother Mary Margaret "Madge" Killion in 1986; sister Jeanette Salmon Jackson Wight; and brother Billy Scott Salmon. She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Marvin J. Davis; children Gena (Lyle) Kenner, of Linton, North Dakota, Jill Davis Homerding, C. Gaye Davis and J. Scott Davis of Walsenburg; grandchildren Katelin Renee Davis, Denver, Kelsey Michelle Davis, Colorado, Springs, Hallie Ann Homerding and Billy Scott Carruth, Walsenburg; nephew Larry Scott Jackson, of Sonora, California; special brother and sisters-in-law; cousins; extended family; and a lifetime of friends.

Davis, Olive
Miss Olive Davis - Walsenburg World Independent - March 29, 1913 - In Memoriam, Died, of Scarlet fever, at the home of her parents, Mr. And Mrs. John Davis at Walsen, Colo. On Friday, March 21, 1913, Miss Olive Davis, aged 15 years, 4 months and 6 days. Funeral services were conducted by Roy Dow at the cemetery Saturday afternoon. Miss Davis was ill but a few days and her death comes as a blow to her parents and many friends. She had been attending High School regularly in this city the past few years, being a member of the freshman class. In her death we fully and keenly realize the loss to those who knew her best. It is sad indeed when a life so young and promising must be snuffed out in a single moment. Nothing but the thought of the loving hand that has removed her can reconcile them to her absence. While she has gone from the scenes, the conflicts, the sorrows and pleasures of life she will still in the hearts of those who mourn her. She was in her happy teens, the time when youth stands waiting before the half-open door that leads into a fairer and more promising land of dreams and flowers. Her future was full of promise, and we dare not ask why she was taken from us in her prime, unless as flowers are picked before the frost finds them, that we may not witness their decay. The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved parents and those who held her memory most dear. May time bring resignation and balm to the wounded hearts and give them that "peace that passeth understanding." "She sleeps where the daisies nod, Where the wild birds come and the wild bees hum, Above her lonely bed. She fought the fight, she kept the faith Her fame shines bright and clear, And her memory lives in all our hearts, Which will hold it ever dear."

Hearing of an opening in this line of work in Alamosa he came here and started in business above the old American National Bank. He later moved his site to the Emperius building and from there moved to his present location on Fourth Street. Davis reared his nephew, the late Floyd [Sylvester] Davis, and niece, Mrs. Ed Nissen of Mosca at his home here. Floyd Davis, veteran of World War I, died about 20 years ago.

Defoyd, along with her husband Paul, began teaching in Rye in 1950. She retired in 1986. Wachob started as secretary at Rye in 1954. She retired in 1987. Both women taught at Rye when kindergarten through 12th grades were in one building. That building is now the Rye Carriage House Apartments and TR's Country Store. The two women both finished out their careers at Craver Middle School in Colorado City. Defoyd and Wachob influenced the lives of two generations of students during their tenures in Valley schools. Greenhorn Valley View general manager Virginia Hood remembers both ladies fondly. "Helen was teaching when I was in school and she taught both of my boys," she said. "LaVerne's daughter Jacque was a dear friend of mine in High School. I spent lots of time at their house, and Jacque spent lots of time at mine", Hood remembers. "LaVerne was like a second mother to me and several other friends felt the same way too." Hood also remembers when both the Defoyds and the Wachobs supported her through a tough time during her senior year at Rye. "LaVerne and (husband) Jack Wachob, Helen and Paul Defoyd and many of my friends and my family were there to get me through", Hood stated. "There were lots of small crises and decisions that they helped us all get through. They were always there. I hear stories from many former students who feel the same way I do." Both women are remembered for their winning personalities, loving ways and the countless ways they contributed to the schools and the communities. They are also remembered as encouragers who supported and mentored hundreds of students through the years. "These two ladies will always have a special place in all of our hearts," Hood said.

Desantis, Luciano
Luciano Desantis – Aspen Democrat – December 9, 1903 – Strikers Attack Strike-Breakers – Several Shots Fired and One is Wounded – Several Volleys Exchanged Between the Deputies and Strikers in Which the Coal Miners Get the Worst of it – A Probable Summer Story to Get the Troops to Trinidad – Trinidad, Colo., Dec. 8 – Four Italian strike-breakers being conducted in a wagon from Berwind to Primero in the Las Animas county field, by Tom Jennings, were fired on from ambush between 5 and 6 o'clock last evening one mile north of Primero. One of the strike-breakers, it is claimed, was hit in the foot and one of the mules attached to the wagon was killed. After the first volley Jennings and his companions jumped from the wagon and escaped to the hills. All are now in Primero. Jennings twisted his ankle in jumping from the wagon. The news of the alleged ambuscade was brought to Primero by one of the strike-breakers and orders were telephoned Segundo to have guards and deputies placed on all roads leading to and from that place. Segundo and Primero are located two miles apart. At 9 o'clock, a party of six deputies met eight foreigners marching to Segundo from the direction in which the ambuscade is said to have taken place – the deputies, it is alleged, ordered the marchers to halt and were answered by a volley of bullets from rifles and shotguns. The deputies then fired killing one man, fatally wounding two others, and seriously a fourth. The dead man in Luciano Desantis. The fatally wounded are J. Velano and B. Dandi. The third wounded man refuses to tell his name. Union officials in Trinidad have begun an independent investigation. They are inclined to believe the truth has not been wholly told regarding the ambuscade or the killing of the strikers by the deputies. They are inclined to think that extreme measures are being adopted by the coal companies to force Governor Peabody to fill the district with troops. Telluride Journal – December 10, 1903 – Rioting at Trinidad – Strikers Ambuscade a Body of Guards and One Man is Killed and Three Wounded – Trinidad, Dec. 8 – As a result of last night's battle at the coke ovens at Segundo between strikers and guards, one striker is dead and three injured, two fatally. The men are all Italians and Sicilians. The battle was the direct result of an attack on Jennings' party of non-union men, who were ambushed on their way to Primero. The party was being brought to Primero by Jennings, who is a brother of the Superintendent of the C. F. & I. mines at Berwind, to work in the Camp mines at Primero. They were being led across the country from Berwind when ambushed. The news of the ambuscade quickly spread and armed guards from Segundo and Primero hastened to cut off all trails and roads leading into the old town of Segundo, where the disorderly element of the strikers live. The guards noticed several men approaching from the hills in the direction of the ambuscade. On being ordered to halt the strikers opened fire. The guards returned the volley and several strikers were seen to fall. Three of the number escaped. None of the guards were wounded. The whole country has been aroused by the conflict of the opposing elements, and it is expected troops will be asked for. The dead man has been identified as Luana Desantias. The fatally injured are Jose Velano and Benedotti Bandi. The third man wounded refuses to give his name. Union officials here declare the ambuscade and subsequent killing of the strikers is a part of the extreme measures adopted by the coal companies to induce the Governor to send troops to the district. Durango Democrat – December 11, 1903 – Follow Comrads (sp) To Last Abode – Huge Outpouring of Miners at the Funeral of the Dead Strikers – All Peace and Quiet – Trinidad, Dec. 10 – Nearly 2,000 union miners participated in the double funeral of Velasco and Desantis, the miners who were killed at Segundo Monday night in a fight with guards which was held here this afternoon. No trouble of any kind occurred and soon after the funeral all the miners quietly dispersed and went to their homes. The funeral was the largest in point of attendance ever seen here. [Note: I was unable to verify the actual names, so I took my best guess, based on all of the articles. I searched online in vain for the Trinidad Catholic Cemetery.]

Dickman, Unknown
Engineer Dickman – Dolores News – December 11, 1880 – A Fatal Accident on the D. & R. G. – From the Denver Tribune – The passenger train which left here on Sunday morning at 7:50 o'clock over the Rio Grande road met with a serious accident about five miles south of Colorado Springs. A broken rail threw the engine from the track down the embankment and the greater portion of the train was dragged after it. Engineer Dickman and Cy. Manseretta, the fireman, attempted to jump from the engine, but did not succeed and were crushed beneath it. Dickman was instantly killed and Manseretta died in a few hours, being frightfully scalded by escaping steam. The coaches were over on their sides but the passengers all escaped without serious injury, although a number received painful bruises and contusions. It was some hours before the wreck was cleared, the uptrain being about four hours late. The passengers remained at Colorado (Springs) until a train could be made up, when they were taken south. The body of the engineer was taken to Pueblo for burial. He was married and leaves a wife and one child. Deputy Sheriff Farmer, who was returning from a trip to Pueblo with a patient for the insane asylum, was on the up train which met the wreck at Colorado Springs. Mr. Farmer states that the train was running at the rate of about 23 miles per hour when the accident occurred and the engine ran about four car lengths after leaving the rails. A great deal of time elapsed before the arrival of physicians, who were finally brought from the Springs on a hand car. The passengers had a very fortunate escape.

Dickman, William
William Dickman - Pueblo Chieftain - November 30, 1880 - Death on the Rail - Engineer Dickman and Fireman Masurett meet a horrible death. The most serious and lamentable accident that ever happened on the Denver & Rio Grande road, occurred last Sunday noon, about six miles this side of Colorado Springs. The south bound train left Colorado Springs almost on time, and was booming along at its usual rate of speed when, without any warning whatever, the engine left the track and went down into the ditch, followed by the mail, express, and baggage cars, the passenger coaches keeping the track. The engine turned completely over, although there is no embankment at that place. When the engine turned over she sprung a leak either by the breaking of a steam pipe or otherwise, and a stream of hot scalding steam filled the engine cab, in the debris of which were both the engineer and fireman. The engineer was stunned by the fall or by being struck by some part of the engineer or falling cars, and probably never knew what struck him, but the fireman was less fortunate and was scalded to death, literally boiled alive. The agonies of such a death are too fearful to contemplate, and we will not dwell upon it further than to say that the flesh was fairly boiled from the bones of the unfortunate men. As soon as possible willing hands went to work removing the wreck in order to extricate the bodies of the unfortunate men, but owing to the escaping steam, which rendered it almost impossible to get near, the work was necessarily slow. Finally, however the fireman who was still alive was extricated, but he died soon afterwards. His name was Cyrus Masurett, and he lived at Port Sarnia, Canada. We understand that he had been employed by the Rio Grande Company only a short time before his untimely death. His remains were forwarded to his friends at Port Sarnia. The engineer, who died at his post, was better known in this city, where he had many friends, and was an honored and trusted servant of the company. His name was William Dickman, and he resided here. His remains were brought to this city Sunday evening, and the funeral took place yesterday afternoon at half past two o'clock. A large number of his late companions followed his remains to their last resting place. Rocky Mountain News - November 30, 1880 - Accident on the Rio Grande - The passenger train over the Denver and Rio Grande road on Sunday met with a serious accident below Colorado Springs. When within about five miles of that city, proceeding northward, a broken rail threw the engine from the track and dragged a portion of the train after it. The engine driver and fireman both endeavored to escape by jumping from the engine. The engineer, named Dickman, was killed instantly, and the fireman, named Mauseretta, was so seriously injured that he died in a few hours. The passenger cars turned over but fortunately no one was hurt except a few bruises and a slight shaking up. The passengers remained until a train could be made up, when they were taken forward on their journey. The body of the engineer, who leaves a wife and child, was taken to Pueblo for burial. The passengers had a very fortunate escape. Rocky Mountain News - December 2, 1880 - The Rio Grande - Nuggets of News from the Various Cities - Pueblo - The funeral of William Dickman, the engineer killed by the Colorado Springs accident on the Rio Grande, took place in this city yesterday afternoon. It was very largely attended. Deceased was well known and well liked in Pueblo, where he leaves a wife and three children. "Laying off will not buy shoes for my babies," were the last words uttered by the brave engineer as he pulled out his train on the fatal trip. He had been connected with the Rio Grande less than six months, previous to which he ran an engine on the Kansas Pacific. He was thirty-eight years of age and a man of a genial nature and steady habits. The fireman, Charles Mazaretto, killed with Dickman, was a native of Canada, whither his body has been forwarded.

His mother, Beatrice (Ottati) DiGregorio, worked in the fields, farming with her two dearly loved sisters-in-law, both named Theresa. Julius' mother died when he was 16 years old. Her passing left a void that perhaps was the driving force behind his quest for adventure, travel, and a zeal to live life to its fullest. From the time he played football on the State Champion Trinidad High School Miners Team, he remained an avid sports fan and outdoorsman. In 1940, he earned a degree in mechanical engineering from Notre Dame College. The Great Depression had left few jobs but Julius worked both as a coal miner in Crested Butte and as an engineer in South America. A veteran of World War II, he was wounded in the Allied invasion of North Africa and received a Purple Heart. He returned to active duty with his division of engineers and demolition experts who fought in the liberation of Italy under Gen. Patton, earning a Bronze Star. Following in the steps of post-war America, Julius launched his dreams, beginning with the construction of a three-level, brick apartment building on East Main St., and the ownership and operation of the Columbian Hotel, restaurant and lounge complex in downtown Trinidad. During this time, he married Frances Amato on April 19, 1949, of whom he is survived; as well as three "baby boomers", Francine (Mark) Schultz, Trinidad, David DiGregorio, Houston, and Joseph DiGregorio, Denver. Julius remained a farm boy at heart, loving gardening, children, and animals of every kind; especially cats and German shepherd dogs. A devout Catholic, he taught his children acceptance for all races and nationalities, and to be concerned for the rights of the disadvantaged and oppressed. In the 1970s Julius was the director of the Head Start programs for Las Animas and Huerfano counties, as well as a member of the Regional (Western) Head Start Directors' Board. He remained a member of numerous civic and community organizations including the Jaycees and the Civil Air Patrol. Julius is also survived by his grandchildren, Mark William Schultz and Julie Schultz; sister, Angie Tortorice; sisters-in-law, Nadine Caselnova, Marie Amato; brothers-in-law, Carl Amato, Sam (Kathy) Amato, Louis (Georgina) Amato; and many nieces and nephews.

In some manner this morning she eluded the vigilance of the nurse, and going directly to the barrel of water she broke the thick coating of ice with a hatchet and plunged in head first. The protruding points of ice held her body like a vice, and had she attempted to withdraw herself she would have found it impossible. The nurse missed her patient half an hour later and was horrified to find her lifeless body in the barrel. Mrs. Diverbliss was an old timer and well known here and throughout the county. She leaves a husband and four children. Denver Evening Post - December 24, 1896 - A Suicide in Pueblo - Mrs. Dideliss Ties Her Wrists and Jumps Into a Barrel of Water - Pueblo, Dec. 24 - Mrs. E. H.

Mr. Doerffler shot himself through the brain about eight o'clock Tuesday evening, killing himself instantly. At six o'clock he was in the second hand store of Chas. Agnes and remarked that he must get some meat and take it home for supper. He evidently did not go home at once as he said, for it was nearly eight o'clock when he came home. He entered the house, kissed his wife and grand-daughter, carefully removed everything from his pockets, took off his hat, and went out bareheaded on the back porch. Immediately thereafter his wife heard two shots. Doerffler had shot himself through the right temple, the ball coursing through the brain. This shot must have killed him instantly, and the second shot was fired from the muscular action of the hand. The weapon used was a double action automatic Colt. Mr. Doerffler was 55 years of age and leaves a wife, two sons, and a grand daughter.

Doug's relationship with his family and friends was unique. He had an amazing dry wit and sense of humor that as you first met Doug, you would not be too sure if he was "teasing" with you or not. It took little time to find out what a treasure Doug was to everyone – he managed to develop special relationships with many, many people and he has touched by so very many lives. Whenever you find something amiss, listen for Doug's unique laugh, he will always be with you. He had the capacity for holding remarkable conversations with everyone, from his young nieces and nephew to his many, many cousins and just about anyone who would stop and visit with him. His favorite publications were Discovery and Scientific American and he followed the space programs with an avid interest. When the newspapers arrived at the door, he sat down with his favorite soda and with pen in hand, perused the paper from cover to cover, often writing his own thoughts in the margins. He is survived by his parents, Hal and Phyllis Krier Donnelly, formerly of Boulder and now residing in Monte Vista; two sisters, Colleen Dean and her children, Tyler, Timmie and Tinker, of Monte Vista; Kelly and Jerold Wilkinsen and their, daughter Kylie, of Monte Vista; also surviving, the families of Jewel Geiger, Carol and Kohler McInnis, the Small family and Pauline and Don Santi family.

Dotson, Sarah E.
Sarah E. Dotson - Colorado Daily Chieftain – December 22, 1875 – Dotson - On the 21st inst., in Pueblo, Sarah E., eldest daughter of Rev. W.A. Dotson, pastor of the Methodist Episcopalian church, aged 19 years. The funeral will take place from the residence of her parents, at half past 2:00 this (Wednesday) afternoon. Colorado Daily Chieftain - December 24, 1875 - Miss Sarah E. Dotson – I take this method of extending the sincere thanks of bleeding but appreciative hearts to Revs. Monfort and Tompkins, and the many friends who so generously gave their friendly offices and tears of sympathy in the sickness and at the funeral of our dear departed one. From her early childhood the deceased was accustomed to regular seasons of prayer, and in later years gave unmistakable evidence of her love for the Divine Human Christ, the Sunday school and the church. She never entered the ball room or the play circle. Endowed with a nature too tender and confiding for earth, she felt keenly its scorn and slights and learned only by bitter experience that much of our social life is but a sham and a cheat. She never gave intentional offense to either rich or poor, and toward the close of her life turned for sympathy and cheer to generous and unselfish natures without regard to their graduated scale in the social world. From the age of two years she was during much of her life a great physical sufferer. After the first four days of her final sickness she enjoyed few lucid moments; but whenever asked expressed love for the Savior and unwavering trust in the merits of his death. At the first visit of the doctor she told him of a beautiful dream of the previous night. She dreamed that Christmas had come, and that she saw the Savior surrounded by many little children, all dressed in white robes. (Poem) She was born September 29th, 1856, and died at 3 o'clock and 30 minutes, December 21st, 1875. (poem). W.A. Dotson

Marcia Dowen - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - February 14, 1980 - Two Killed in Air Crash at Pueblo - Pueblo - Two persons were killed early today when a single-engine plane crashed and exploded just east of fog-shrouded Pueblo Municipal Airport shortly after takeoff, Federal Aviation Administration officials said. The names of the victims were not immediately known. The two victims were thought to be the only persons on board. Frank Rose, an FAA controller, said the crash occurred abut 5:55 a.m., just before the control tower opened at 6 a.m. The control tower is closed from midnight to 6 a.m. each day. He said that he saw the aircraft disappear from the radar screen and then saw a flash through the fog. Airport Manager Ray Monroe said that after the plane, a Piper Cherokee, left the airport, the pilot apparently turned back because of the dense fog. The plane inexplicably lost altitude, clipped some power lines and slammed into a road just east of the airport, disintegrating upon impact, he said. Pieces of wreckage and bodies were strewn across the road and a nearby field.

Dower, Lisa Anne
Lisa Anne Dower - Colorado Springs Gazette - April 1, 2009 - Our beautiful Lisa Anne passed away Sunday, March 29, 2009 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, due to a ruptured brain aneurysm. Lisa was born on November 4, 1964, in San Antonio, Texas. Shortly after her birth, her family moved to Butte, Montana, where she was raised by her parents, Roy Eynon and Patricia Anne Dower. She attended local Butte schools and was extremely intelligent as evidenced by her unusually high IQ. Lisa was an accomplished piano player and was very artistic. She played in numerous piano recitals and won many art and academic awards during her school years. Lisa loved to travel and lived in many beautiful locations throughout her adulthood. Upon leaving Butte, she lived in Billings, Montana, where she owned and operated her own antique store. She then moved on to Portland, Oregon, where she lived, worked, and enjoyed the beautiful city. She eventually moved to Anchorage, Alaska, to be her sister and Grandmother. While in Alaska, Lisa was very active with all Anchorage has to offer and spent time skiing, hiking, and taking wonderful care of her beloved Grandma Fran. She was a wonderful Aunt to her sister's children and spent time with them. Upon her Grandmother's passing, Lisa moved once again to Colorado Springs, Colorado, to join family. Lisa was a waitress by trade and an excellent one at that. She most recently worked at Wade's Cafι where she was always smiling and loving her customers. She was so appreciated by her customers that they would gladly wait for extensive periods in order to sit in her section. Lisa had many friends in Colorado Springs and enjoyed hiking in Garden of the Gods and spending time visiting antique and thrift stores. She was close with her sisters' family and treated her nieces and nephews as her own children. Lisa had a heart of gold, could always bring a smile to anyone, and had a sense of humor that couldn't be matched. She was generous to a fault, would give anything to anyone, but would never take in return. She did not care whatsoever about material possessions. Instead, she cared about the plight of abused and neglected animals. During her life she spent a great deal of time volunteering for the Humane Society and American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). She adopted her two cats, Jack and Mickey, through the ASPCA, and gave them the best home any cat could meow for! Lisa was a one of a kind in so many ways. This world will not be the same without her spirit, her love of life, and her inner and outer beauty. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Her contagious smile and one of a kind laugh have left their mark on all who knew and loved her. Lisa's final act as an organ, eye, and tissue donor was the final example of her generosity. As a result of this act, three people are currently scheduled to receive Lisa's generous gift of life. Lisa was preceded in death by her mother, Patricia Anne Dower and her brother, Mark Goudie. She is survived by her parents, Roy and Barbara Dower of Great Falls, Montana. Her sister and brother in law Laurie Joy and Terry Wayne Woodard of Colorado Springs, Colorado, her sister and brother in law Jenny Louise and Douglas Frederick Hahn of Henderson, Nevada, her brother Bret Goudie of Burien, Washington, and her brother and sister in law, Richard and Vicki Turnbull of Great Falls, Montana. Relatives also include her Uncle Douglas Dower of Great Falls, Montana, Aunt and Uncle, Barbara and Thomas Riddell of Pueblo, Colorado, cousins, Dan, David, Jayne, Nellie, and James, and nieces and nephews Charlie-Anne, Aften, Chasity, Austin, Hayley-Frances, Erinn, James, and Anna-Rose. A memorial service for Lisa, will be held at Advantage - Chapel of Memories, 829 S. Hancock Ave., Colorado Springs, Colorado, at 3 p.m. Thursday, April 2, 2009. A reception for family and friends will follow at Wades Cafι, 3405 North Academy Blvd., Colorado Springs, Colorado, at 5 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the local American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, as Lisa would have wanted.

Gordon lived his life always thinking of others. His wife, daughters and grandsons always came first, making them happy made him happy. Taking three little girls camping, skiing, boating, jeeping, etc. couldn't have been easy, but if they had fun, he had fun. He was passionate about his grandsons' sporting events and rarely missed one. He was an avid golfer and more avid woodworker. His handiwork adorns every family members' and some friends' homes. The candlesticks, clocks and other items he made and gave as his Christmas gifts will be treasured forever.

He graduated from Colorado Springs High School (Palmer) in 1958, married his high school sweetheart and enlisted in the Navy, stationed in Alameda, Calif. His father's death in 1961 brought him back to Colorado Springs, where he pursued a career in Finance. He started college when he was 29 and earned his degree from UCCS. He then began a career in banking that brought the family to Pueblo in 1974. In 1987 he moved to real estate, from which he retired in 2000.

Donations may be made to Ascension Episcopal Church. Memorial service will be held at 10am, Thursday, July 15 at Ascension Episcopal Church.

Dragasch, Andrew
Andrew Dragasch - Wray Rattler - March 20, 1919 - Philip Blanda and Fred Marone, Italians, were found guilty of murder in the second degree by a jury in the District Court at Pueblo. They were accused of murdering Andrew Dragasch for the purpose of robbery. Pueblo Chieftain – August 14, 1918 – Several Parties Being Held While Officials Unravel Mystery Apparently Nearing Solution – The body of Andro Dragash, aged 56 years, for many years prominent in the local Croatian colony, and proprietor of a soft drink parlor at 1251 south Santa Fe avenue, was found at 5:30 o'clock yesterday morning cold in death lying sprawling in the middle of the roadway in front of the Pueblo stock yards and adjacent to the Santa Fe railway right of way about two miles east of the city. Philip Blanda, an Italian steel worker, was taken to St. Mary's hospital yesterday morning, soon after the shots were heard fired in the vicinity of the stock yards; he was suffering from a bullet wound in the breast. Upon investigation it was found that the body was that of Andro Dragash, and search of the remains revealed that there was a roll of $800 in bills on the body and something more than $30 was also found in other pockets of the clothing. A slip of paper dated August 13 and containing adding machine figures which totaled $1,000 is said also to have been found with the roll of money. This is said to represent the total of checks presented at the First National bank Monday by Dragash. The checks were those which he is said to have cashed at his soft drink parlor, as was his custom, for various employes of the steel works. That Dragash was undoubtedly murdered, and that the motive of the murder was robbery seems to have been established by the investigations made yesterday by police and sheriff's officers into many circumstances surrounding the case. But why Dragash should be out on a lonely road at the hour of the night when the murder was committed, and why he should have so much money in his pocket on that trip is a problem which is baffling both the police and sheriff's officers who have been working diligently to unravel the mystery of the merchant's death. Death resulted from gunshot wounds of which there are two. One bullet entered the left wrist, and the second bullet struck Dragash in the left breast and entered his heart, which is supposed to have killed him instantly. Dragash made the trip to the place where he was killed in a light wagon to which was hitched one horse. The horse was discovered at First and Prospect streets following the discovery of Dragash's body. The horse had traveled nearly a mile from the scene of the killing of the driver. The animal was found tied to a tree. The seat and dashboard and floor of the vehicle were spattered and smeared with blood, and there was every evidence that there had been a struggle between Dragash and someone else who had been riding in the vehicle. The murdered man's hat was in the back of the wagon as was a lantern which Dragash is said to have taken with him when he departed from his home last night. Dragash's revolver was also in the wagon. One shot had been fired from it. Investigations made by the police and sheriff's office yesterday indicate that Dragash may have been, and probably was, lured to the place thru a conspiracy, and that when he had reached the spot determined upon by the conspirators, one of them, probably riding with Dragash in the wagon, turned upon him with a demand for the money. In the ensuing struggle Dragash probably fired the shot indicated by the one empty chamber in his revolver, and was then shot to death by one of the conspirators. Tracks of the wagon were found on both sides of the bridge which spans the Arkansas river near the stock yards and these wagon tracks convey some evidence of the struggle which took place in the wagon. They show that the wagon was turned around more than once on the south side of the river, and that after crossing the river the horse again traveled in a circle before moving northward along the road toward the stock yards, to the point where the body of Dragash fell from the wagon to the roadway. Another evidence of a conspiracy against Dragash is the fact that a horse, without a saddle but with a bridle on it, was seen wandering in the neighborhood of the Stock Yards dairy at about 2 o'clock yesterday morning by the employes of the dairy who had arisen at that hour to milk the cows of the dairy herd. The horse was seen by two employes but later could not be found. It is presumed that the animal may have been ridden by one of the conspirators who had remained in hiding in the small trees and shrubbery which skirt the road near the river. C. C. Hartman, superintendent of the Pueblo stock yards, heard three gunshot reports at about 1:10 o'clock yesterday morning. He had previously heard the barking of a dog, and presumed that someone was shooting at the animal. A short while later he heard another shot, this fourth report sounding much closer to the stock yards office than the other three. In another minute or two a horse and wagon passed the stock yards gate in the direction of the railroad track. Because the night was dark Mr. Hartman could not distinguish a driver in the wagon, but supposing it was probably some boys driving homeward in a wagon who had taken a few shots at a dog, he paid no more attention to the incident until Henry Castellar, proprietor of the Stock Yards dairy awakened him (Hartman) at about 5:30 o'clock yesterday morning to inform him that the body of a man was lying in the roadway. The discovery was first made by a smelter employe on his way home from work who came upon the body in the road, and who notified the Castellar brothers. Diligent work on the part of Undersheriff J. Arthur Grady, Deputy Sheriff Roddy and Detective Baty of the police department into all circumstances surrounding the killing of Dragash resulted last night in the officers determining upon and putting into effect somewhat sensational action. As a result of that action Detective Walton was detailed to remain at the bedside of Philip Blanda, an Italian steel worker, aged 23, admitted at an early hour yesterday morning to St. Mary's hospital suffering from a gunshot wound in the left breast, and to keep Blanda under guard pending the outcome of his injuries. The police and sheriff's offices are convinced that Blanda knows something about the Dragash case, and they are holding him under guard as a suspect in the Dragash murder mystery. Fred Maroney, aged 23, also a steel worker, is in custody pending an investigation of his statements regarding the manner in which Blanda received the bullet wound in the breast. The police say that the wound in Blanda's breast appears to have been made by the same caliber of bullet as those in the revolver found in the bed of the Dragash wagon. That weapon had one empty chamber. It is also stated that there were automobile tire tracks in the ground in and near the roadway at the south side of the Stock-yards bridge over the Arkansas. The tracks indicate that the driver drove the car to a spot near the bridge, backed the car out of the roadway and then returned south over the same road he had come. The hour at which Blanda was received at St. Mary's hospital, the conflicting details in the stories told by Blanda and Maroney concerning the manner in which they claim Blanda received his wound, and other alleged facts not revealed by the officers are said to convince the police and sheriff's officers that Blanda and Maroney are not beyond suspicion in the Dragash case. It is said that Blanda told the officers who questioned him at the hospital last night concerning the manner in which he received his dangerous bullet wound in the left breast, that he had been shot by some unknown person when he alighted from the car driven by Maroney when the car halted under the Rio Grande railroad bridge between the Grove and El Dorado avenue. No excuse of motive for the shooting is advanced by either Maroney or Blanda for the shooting of Blanda, but the police and sheriff's officers say that the stories of Blanda and Maroney conflict regarding several important details, among which is one regarding the manner in which Blanda was shot. Blanda is said to declare that he was out of the car when shot. The officers say that Maroney was equally positive that Blanda was shot while sitting in the car, and that after being shot he rolled out of the open door of the vehicle. Baty, Grady and Robby worked on the case without ceasing from early yesterday morning till almost midnight last night, but when they ceased their work for the day they were confident that they possessed evidence which will result in the unraveling of the mystery surrounding the death of Dragash. Coroner Ray Taylor is also making an investigation into all circumstances surrounding the death of Dragash. Dragash is survived by his widow, Mrs. Lena Dragash, and by four children by a former marriage. The children are two sons, Dragan, residing at the family home, 1251 south Santa Fe avenue, Milan, residing in Ohio and two daughters, one residing at Wakefield, Michigan and another at Akron, Ohio. Deceased was prominent in the Croatian lodge and fraternal circles and was widely known among the business men of Bessemer and the South Side. The remains were removed to the undertaking parlors of the William B. McMinn Undertaking company by whom announcement is made that the funeral arrangements are completed for services to be held next Sunday morning. Pueblo Chieftain – August 16, 1918 – Cheyenne Owner Identified Auto – Interesting in connection with the shooting of Philip Blanda and the murder of Andro Dragash on Sunday night last, is the discovery and identification of the automobile stolen from Cheyenne and found in the yard of one of the men connected with the double tragedy story. Yesterday C. J. Bell came to Pueblo from Cheyenne, Wyo., and claimed his automobile. This automobile made by the Oldsmobile people, was stolen from outside the Elks club in Cheyenne on July 27, the last day of the frontier show. Tuesday this same car was found in the rear of the house where Fred Moroney (Maroney) lived. He admits driving the car, but denies he stole it. Since the car was stolen it has been driven over 3,000 miles, averaging over 170 miles a day, and the police theory is that this car was used to transport liquor from New Mexico to here. The sheriff who accompanied Mr. Bell from Cheyenne was allowed to look at Maroney who is in jail at the police station, and said he remembers seeing Maroney at the Cheyenne roundup in July, altho he cannot state whether he was one of the two men along with a woman who stole the car July 27. Philip Blanda, who is suffering with a bullet wound in his left chest at St. Marys hospital is still under the surveillance of the police, and his condition is considered fairly serious. The police authorities are hoping to obtain information from Blanda very soon, as they are reasonably certain the two men held are the men connected with the murder of Dragash.

Drain, Dorothy
Dorothy Drain – Colorado Public Defender - (August 13, 1937) and Joe Arridy (a.k.a. Arrdy) (January 6, 1939). Frank Aguilar, Joe Arridy, Pueblo. (H-W and Other-W). Asphyxiation. Aguilar and Arridy were convicted of the August 16, 1936, murder of Dorothy Drain. The men were accused of breaking into the Drain home, sexually assaulting Dorothy, and then killing her and seriously wounding her younger sister with a hatchet. In 1925, Arridy, who was born in Pueblo shortly after his parents immigrated from Syria, had been adjudicated as mentally incompetent and sent to "[t]he State Home and Training School for Mental Defectives" in Grand Junction. At the institution, his IQ was measured at forty-six. He was released after a nine-month stay, but three years later returned to the institution. In 1936, he walked away from the Home and was not seen until his arrest in Wyoming sixteen days later—ten days after the murder. There he offered the first of many confessions to the crime, with each confession changing a bit to conform with newly discovered facts. Arridy's arrest surprised officials in Pueblo, who had already arrested Aguilar, a Mexican national, for the murder and discovered the murder weapon in Aguilar's home. The Wyoming authorities then secured a confession from Arridy in which he said that he had acted alone in the murder. A jury trial first was conducted to determine if he was sane, where three psychiatrists testified that Arridy had the mind of a five or six-year-old child. Law enforcement officials, however, claimed that he was sane, and that position prevailed, even without the support of any mental health experts. Arridy was then convicted of murder in a separate jury proceeding, in which the defense attorney again focused on proving that Arridy was insane rather than challenging the "evidence." The conviction was affirmed on appeal, and further attempts to show that Arridy was mentally incompetent for execution failed, each time by four-to-three votes in the Colorado Supreme Court. Meanwhile, Aguilar was executed in 1937. During the execution, one of the official witnesses, Adlai S. "Ad" Hamilton, a Pueblo resident and conductor for the Missouri Pacific Railroad, had a heart attack and died. During his eighteen months on death row, Arridy became close friends with the warden, Roy Best. The warden, who spoke out against the pending execution, bought him toys, picture books, and for Christmas in 1938, a wind-up toy train that quickly became Arridy's favorite toy. Arridy's appellate attorney was Colorado's future attorney general, (Mr.) Gail Ireland. Later, the case formed the basis for a seminal book-length case study written by Robert Perske. Among other things, the book explains how the desire to please through false confessions, coupled with ineffective assistance of counsel and an environment in which there was little concern for understanding the mentally retarded, may very well have cost an innocent person his life.

Draper, Albert
Albert Draper – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – March 9, 1875 – Falling Walls – Men Killed and Wounded – The News of Sunday gives the following account of the falling of two buildings in Denver, and the killing and wounding of several men: "About 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon, while workmen were engaged on the building improvements in progress at Nos. 201 and 203, Fifteenth street, the division wall between two buildings bulged out in the center and fell over into the cellar of Alvin McCune's new structure. Scarcely had it struck before the second floor and inside wall of William Holliday's grocery store came tumbling after it. The central or division wall, which was being carried up an additional story, had reached a height of about twenty feel, and was only eight inches in thickness. The brick from the falling walls, with masses of plaster and the heavy timbers of the floor, came down with a crash like a bolt of thunder, and with a suddenness that was appalling. There were five bricklayers, five hodcarriers, and four carpenters at work on top of the walls when the crash occurred. Several men, among them Alvin McCune, were at work in the open cellar, while a party of five laborers were excavating under the sidewalk, in front of the store. William Holliday, William Cowell, owner of the store portion, Albert Draper, and Rufus Wills were inside the store, and a number of customers had just left the door. Charles Pridmore, clerk for Holliday, who was in the cellar excavation, saw the wall giving way, and alarmed the others near him. The men tried to escape to the sidewalk, but all were caught, either by bricks or timbers, and more or less injured. The men on top fell and jumped in all directions, and that a single one of them escaped instant death is a matter of wonder, for the tumbling of debris was frightful. One or two, in their desperate leap, cleared the debris, and struck beyond reach of falling walls, and escaped with only slight shocks, while others were struck and caught in various ways, but, strange to say, were not seriously injured. The workmen under the sidewalk, in front of the store, though covered by a shower of light material, were not harmed. The first one taken out of the debris was Alvin McCune. He, as already stated, was in the cellar, and when found was lying motionless, and apparently dead, with loose boards, plaster, and other rubbish covering him, and brick lying all around him. He was carried into W. J. Barker's store, on the adjoining lot, and soon after was conveyed to his home, at 109 Broadway. His injuries, though severe, are not necessarily fatal. Michael Foley was cut badly about the head, and has since died. Albert Draper, bookkeeper for Wm. Holliday, was taken out dead, crushed into a shapeless mass. George Frisco, Charles Pridmore, John Gibson, Rufus Willis and William Holliday received bruises and gashes more or less serious. Pridmore was pretty severely cut about the head. Mr. Holliday, who rushed from the building just in time to save himself, was struck in the back by a brick or some other missile, receiving a serious shock. His young clerk, Rufus Willis, just as he reached the door in his flight, was caught and held by a piece of timber, but fortunately was comparatively uninjured. The loss by damage to the buildings can hardly fall short of $3,500. The store contained a $40,000 stock of groceries, and of course there will be some loss on the goods, though every article was loaded onto wagons and hauled to a warehouse on Black street.

Driscol, Michael
Michael Driscol - Hayden Routt County Republican - October 3, 1913 - Boarding House Keeper is Slain - Body of Aged Man is Found Battered, at Bottom of Arroyo - Trinidad, Colo., Sept. 24 - The body of Michael Driscol, sixty years old, keeper of a company boarding house at the Southwestern mine, two miles north of Aguilar, was found in the bottom of a sixteen-foot arroyo between Jewel and Southwestern, by two boys, Emmet Locke and Vincent Lynn. The boys were members of a searching party which had been looking for Driscol. Driscol lay on his back. His hands and face were smeared with blood and his neck was broken. Several cuts and bruises covered his head and shoulders. The theory is that he was beaten to death and thrown into the arroyo, and the authorities connect his death with the strike by reason of Driscol's position as keeper of a company boarding house. Driscol and his wife were in Aguilar Tuesday, the opening day of the strike, visiting Driscol's sister, Mrs. Kitty. At that time Driscol expressed some fear of the miners, stating that he had enemies among them. Fearing to take his wife to the mine with him, Driscol left her with his sister, while he started to walk to the mine, some time Tuesday afternoon. That was the last seen of him alive and it is thought he met his death that night.

Drury, Glenn
Glenn Drury - World Independent – January 18, 1956 - Glenn Drury Of La Veta Kills Himself - Glenn Drury, La Veta rancher, shot himself to death yesterday afternoon in what was apparently a suicide. His widow and officials believe that despondency over the recent sale of his ranch and over the death, last fall, of his nephew, Larry in a traffic accident, led the 48-year-old man to shoot himself in the head with a 300 Savage. Circumstances, position of the body and of the rifle, support that belief but it was pointed out that no suicide note was found, thus presenting what one official termed a "1000-to-1" chance that the shooting was accidental. Mr. Drury's body was found by his wife shortly after noon yesterday. She called a neighbor who in turn called for the Burress ambulance and for Dr. James Lamme Jr. who raced to the ranch, one mile west of La Veta, from Walsenburg over icy, treacherous roads. When they arrived they found Drury's body at the bottom of a stair leading to a loft in a barn behind his home. The top of his head was blown off. The rifle and the ejected shell were in the loft above. Sheriff Anthony F. Velarde and Coroner Herbert Furphy were immediately called. They concluded that Mr. Drury had taken the gun into the loft, put its butt against a stanchion just in front of the stair, placed the muzzle against his head and pulled the trigger. The impact knocked him down the stairs. It was obvious the gun's muzzle had been held against his forehead. It was decided there will be no inquest since there was no remote indication of foul play. Mr. Drury was born in Dean, Colo., May 29, 1907, and came to Huerfano County at the age of 17. He has been engaged in ranching and farming in the La Veta area ever since. In 1933 he married Norma Hart, of La Veta who survives him. There are no children. Funeral arrangements will be announced later by the Burress Memorial chapel.

Duffy, Patrick
Patrick Duffy - Colorado Daily Chieftain - February 17, 1876 - Who is to Blame? - About two weeks since, if we recollect aright, Patrick Duffy, an old resident of Pueblo county and a perfectly harmless man, was shot by Dan Monahan, and has since died of the wound. The circumstances under which the shooting was done show a cool and deliberate murder. The quarrel originated through a gross insult offered Duffy by Monahan, and after the parties had quarreled and Monahan left the house, he (Monahan) returned next morning, armed, with the intention, as he stated of making Duffy "take back" some language he had used on the previous night. Duffy refused to retract and Monahan shot him and immediately escaped. There is nothing to show that Duffy had any arms whatever, and public opinion brands Monahan as an assassin who, for the good of the community should be prevented from doing any more damage. As soon as Monahan's escape was made known, Sheriff Ellis sent two deputies in pursuit of him, who went over to Bijou Basin, and after a search of two or three days returned without their man. Since then nothing more has been done. No one doubts that Sheriff Ellis would push this matter were some arrangement made to pay the expenses, and it is usual in all such cases as this for the authorities to offer a liberal reward, by means of which criminals are often captured. What are our authorities going to do about it? Dan Monahan was seen on the divide on Sunday evening last, and it don't look as though it would be very hard to find him, but from the course now pursued by those in authority it seems as though this red handed murderer will be allowed to roam at large to kill the next man he happens to become incensed at during a drunken frenzy. Public opinion demands that some steps be taken in this matter.
