Eagan, Charles
Charles Eagan – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – January 2, 1879 – Murder and Suicide – The details of a most horrible double tragedy comes to us, says the Denver Democrat, from Greeley, wherein two lives were offered up on Christmas day as a sacrifice to whisky and rioting. The parties to this terrible affair were Charles Eagan, a ranchman living about twelve miles from Greeley, and Edward Gerry, a young man of about twenty-one years of age. The two men were fast friends and were nearly always together. When last seen alive both were at Eagan's house on Tuesday afternoon and apparently on friendly terms, and on Christmas morning, John Du Bray, a neighbor, discovered them both dead. Gerry's body was lying upon the floor with both jugular veins cut, and resting in a pool of heavy blood, while that of Eagan was also lying upon the floor with a half emptied bottle of strychnine near by. It is thought from the circumstances that Eagan, who was subject to crazy spells, cut Gerry's jugular vein with a knife, and afterwards drew the body from the bed on to the floor, and then split open the other side of the head with an axe. Then coming to a realizing sense of his enormous crime, and through remorse following the terrible deed, the murderer took strychnine, as the bottle standing near would go to show. A coroner's jury, which was impaneled immediately after the discovery, found Eagan's body still warm and evidently dead but a short time. A bottle containing some whisky was found on a table near by. Gerry was a son of the late Elbridge Gerry, an old frontiersman, known to most of the pioneers of Northern Colorado. Eagan had no relatives in the locality, although he is believed to have a sister in Illinois.

He thoroughly enjoyed his academic career, performed mostly at the University of Southern Colorado in Pueblo, where he specialized in Middle Eastern affairs and Colorado history. He took great pride in his role as academic adviser to thousands of students, many of whom today are enjoying careers as teachers, lawyers and professionals in a multitude of areas.

He served as a trustee on the Board of Directors for the Colorado Historical Society for 15 years, and was active in the Colorado History Group, the Pueblo County Historical Society and the Western Social Science Foundation.

Emma Eckhardt – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – January 11, 1915 – Death of Mrs. H. G. Eckhardt – Mrs. H. G. Eckhardt, a well known resident of Leadville, died during the previous night at the Clark Wells sanatorium, Pueblo. It was telephoned to the city yesterday by her husband, Henry G. Eckhardt, one of the leading grocers of the city at 432 – 434 East Seventh street. Death was caused by a sickness of dropsical nature from which Mrs. Eckhardt had suffered for many months. Recently she was accompanied to the Pueblo sanatorium by her husband in the hope that the change of climate and the mineral baths would work a benefit. Mr. Eckhardt telephoned that he would leave for Leadville at 12:30 this morning with his wife's remains, and would arrive here on D. and R. G. passenger No. 15 at 7:10. He had not yet arranged for funeral services, excepting that interment will be made here. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – January 11, 1915 – From Saturday's Daily – Last Tribute to Mrs. Emma Eckhardt – Attended by delegations from the P. O. of A. and the Eastern Star and friends so numerous that they packed the church, funeral services were held yesterday afternoon for the late Mrs. Emma Eckhardt, the wife of H. G. Eckhardt, a well known grocer at 434 East Seventh street. Brief services were held at the family home, 433 East Seventh street, at 1:30 o'clock, at which the Rev. W. M. Garner, pastor of the First M. E. church offered prayer, and the P. O. of A. observed their funeral rites. Mrs. Emma James and Miss Emily Jennings (were) officiating as the officers of the order. When the closing services were observed at the First M. E. church, the edifice was crowded by the scores of friends who gathered there, many additional seats being set at the rear of the auditorium. The casket on the platform was concealed from sight by the abundance of floral tributes, which also stretched across the rostrum and surrounded the funeral bier at the foot. The services there opened with a prayer and scriptural reading by the Rev. Garner, who was followed by the church choir, who sang "Beyond the Smiling and the Weeping." Those composing the choir were Mrs. Frank James, Miss Aileen Lumsden, Miss Burks, accompanied by Miss Christina Johnson. In his funeral address, the minister paid high tribute to Mrs. Eckhardt, having known her during his incumbency here through her loyal and active church work. She was born in Marengo, Ill., in 1866, and had lived in Leadville twenty-five years, having married Mr. Eckhardt here in 1892. Her death following a long illness, at Pueblo last Monday night was untimely and a sad blow to her husband and two daughters, Olive and Luvia. Following the minister's address, the Order of the Eastern Star observed their funeral services, Mrs. William McCallum and a number of other officers officiating. Accompanying the order's ritual was a beautiful solo, "One Sweetly Solemn Thought," sang by Mrs. Fred Johnston, accompanied by Mrs. David A. Cuthbert. The church services closed with "Nearer, My God, to Thee," sung by the church choir, and a solo, "Face to Face," sung beautifully by Mrs. Frank James accompanied by Miss Johnson. At the graveside in Evergreen cemetery, to which dozens of friends drove in carriages, the Rev. Garner conducted the committal service of the church. The procession to the cemetery was headed by the delegation of the Eastern Star in carriages. Acting as pall bearers were Messrs. Frank Lomeister, Court Parsons, Al. Polkinghorn, Frank Potis, G. P. Hale (?) and Andrew Meyer. Joining the family here in their sorrow were a number of relatives of the family, among them being Miss Cable of Pueblo, Mrs. F. F. Park and A. T. Shultz of Newcastle, Miss Tobine of Grand Junction, and Mrs. Sam Colman of Steamboat Springs.

Eeles, John J.
John J. "Jack" Eeles - Memorial to Fallen Officers - The presence of the Memorial to Fallen Officers in the lobby of the Colorado Corrections Training Academy, Caρon City, stands as an everlasting symbol of honor to the fourteen men who have given their lives in the line of duty. The Colorado DOC recognizes the ultimate price paid, dedication and loyalty of the following men: Riot - 1929 - October 3, 1929 - The deadly riot of October 3, 1929, at the Colorado State Penitentiary was preceded earlier that summer by a series of riots in two New York prisons and the Federal Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas. These riots prompted rumors that an organized effort to disrupt the nation's prison system was underway. The riots left 8 staff dead. Details of the tragedy indicated that it was the "bloodiest chapter in the history of the Colorado State Prison." Not only were lives lost, but also large sections of the prison were destroyed by fire. It is estimated that over 2,000 rounds of ammunition were fired during the melee. Perhaps these words written in the Warden's Report to the Colorado Board of Corrections in 1930 say it best: "I wish at this time to commend them for their bravery, loyalty and the supreme sacrifice they made. Their memories will always be held in the deepest reverence and respect by the officials and remaining co-workers." The following men lost their lives in the line of duty: John J. "Jack" Eeles - At 70, Eeles was one of the oldest officers at the penitentiary and had worked there for over 25 years, hired by Warden Cleghorn. He was a blacksmith in Alamosa, prior to moving to Canon City. Officer Eeles was the penitentiary's executioner. Eeles left behind a wife and three children.

After giving birth to two sons, Ray E. Egley of Monument and David W. Egley of Halstead, Kan., Mrs. Egley dedicated all of her spare time to supporting their activities. She spent time as a Cub Scout Den Mother, a member of the PTA and later served on the board of directors of the local youth baseball Old Timers organization. After her children left home, she concentrated on numerous other interests. Having never completed high school, she spent evenings working toward and eventually completing the necessary work for her GED. During the last couple of decades she became immersed in her homemade crafts and eventually took up oil painting. From miniature winter and fall scenes painted on wooden spools to the larger canvas renditions of barns, country roads and nature, she won dozens of awards in local, state and regional art shows. Many of her paintings were purchased by and still hang at Trinidad State Junior College. Mrs. Egley also had a long tenure serving as an election judge during all local, state and national elections. An avid reader, she might be reading as many as four or five books at the same time. She was also known to her friends as the first one to respond in their moment of need. She helped cancer victims, children with severe muscular disorders and neighbors and relatives who needed comforting. Mrs. Egley is survived by her husband of 55 years, Edward R. Egley of Trinidad, her two sons, her two daughters-in-law, Leslie Smartt of Colorado Springs and Annette Egley of Halstead, Kan. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Bryce and Logan Egley of Monument, Melissa and Tara Egley of Halstead, Kan., and Steven Ozzello of Denver, Tracy Ozzello of Henderson, Ky., and Roger Ozzello of Council Bluffs, Iowa. Also surviving are five brothers and one sister and numerous nieces and nephews. Following cremation, a brief memorial service followed by internment will be held in Trinidad later this month.

He was a graduate of Centennial High School, where he was a star basketball player. Taken from an article that appeared in the Pueblo newspaper sports column, "On the Centennial first squad there is only one star and that is Elbeck, the little colored flash who is able to handle two opponents with ease. Last Saturday night it was evident that the Mormons centralized their attack on Elbeck, but he managed to slip back and forth by extraordinary footwork, and evade the opposing guards. He is fast and flashy and deserves more than ordinary mention." Mr. Elbeck made All-State in 1921, the same year the Centennial basketball team went undefeated. On Nov. 12, 1984, he was inducted into the Greater Pueblo Sports Hall of Fame. He retired from the CF&I, 20-inch mill and served in the U.S. Army during WWII.

Very soon after reaching France he was promoted to Corporal in his Company and was in action. He was wounded in the Argonne Forrest drive and succumbed from these injuries on his 24th birthday, November 28th, 1918.

Elms, Charles Leroy
Charles Leroy Elms - Colorado Springs Gazette - March 11, 2007 - Charles Leroy Elms went quietly and peacefully to be with our Lord in the early morning hours of March 6, after a lengthy illness. At his side was his loving wife and life partner, Lynn. Since 1989, Charlie demonstrated a strong, quiet strength and commitment in his fight with cancer and despite four bouts, cancer did not win. He was completely cancer free when he went into the Lord's arms. Charlie and about thirty of his family and best friends had just celebrated his 69th birthday in February. Charlie was a quiet, gentle man. He was an artist with the camera, and spent his entire career as a photographer. For many years Charlie was Chief of Photography at the U.S. Air Force Academy. While at the Academy, he had a great time traveling to many places to photograph everyone and everything from sports events to dignitaries to presidents. (He also enjoyed the notion of flying to some far-flung location for lunch and returning home later in the day.) One of the earliest and proudest memories of his career was the opportunity to photograph aspects of the Apollo Space Program in California. Throughout the years, many of Charlie's outstanding photographs have been selected as presentation pieces. Charles and his sisters, Margaret and Marilyn, grew up on Sunny Hills Ranch in Fullerton, California. As a young teenager, the family moved to Brawley, in the Imperial Valley. He began his career at the age of 13, when he talked Lou Gesler, Brawley photographer, into letting him sweep the studio floor. He graduated from Brawley High, class of 1957. Instead of taking a date to the proms, he took his camera. Following high school, Charlie served in the U.S. Army for several years as a photographer and was stationed in Germany, which he loved. After the Army, he returned to the Imperial Valley and lived there until he and his first wife, Wilma, and daughter Cheryl moved to San Diego, where his twin sons, Ron and Aaron, were born. Charlie began working for the government in El Centro, California, and later transferred to San Diego, where he worked for the Department of the Navy for eighteen years. While living in San Diego, he especially enjoyed time with his family, remodeling his home and playing volleyball on the beach with friends. Charlie and Lynn met in San Diego and were married there in 1982. The following year they moved to Colorado Springs for his new assignment at the Academy, and Ron and Aaron joined them soon after. He and Lynn recently bought a home in Monument, where Lynn still resides. He loved the pond in their backyard, and spent time sitting beside it almost every day last summer. This is where the celebration of Charlie's life will be held in the spring, as was his wish. The date will be announced when arrangements are completed, and all are invited to join in remembering him. Charlie agreed that waiting until spring was a good idea, since the backyard is now full of snow and the pond is icy, and the thought of having folks mush through the snow to sit around an icy pond wasn't very appealing. After his retirement from Civil Service, the focus (no pun intended) of his photography changed to family pictures and weddings. His home is filled with pictures of his 13 grandchildren and one great-grandson as well as their parents. He was especially fond of pictures he'd taken of his daughter, Cheryl, and her beautiful smile. There aren't many pictures of Lynn, as she was usually busy rearranging people for group pictures and making suggestions for poses. In this, as in many other aspects of their life, Charlie and Lynn were a great team. Charlie and Lynn were married for almost 25 years, which was significantly longer than either initially expected. They were a truly blended family. During elections, the Republican sign was in the right side of the front yard and the Democrat sign was on the left. Charlie was always known for being early and Lynn was notorious for being late. Occasionally, she would say, "Look, Charlie, we're going to be on time!" To which Charlie would respond, with his usual dry sense of humor, "We're not there yet." Among other traits, Aaron and Ron have inherited their father's timeliness. One of the highlights of Charlie's later years was the morning coffee bunch at Serrano's in Monument. He frequently took his grandchildren, who have happy memories of time with Grandpa. Even after he was unable to drive, his friends came to take him to coffee many mornings. In addition to his wife Lynn, Charlie is survived by his children, Cheryl Yoder and husband Alex, Ron Elms, Aaron Elms and wife Angel, his mother Allene Mulligan, sister Marilyn Boone and brother-in-law Harvey, sister Margaret Doty, nephew Dennis Doty, niece, Debra Burns and grand-nieces Alyssa and Taylor Burns, "adopted" sons-in-law Jon and Johnnie and former daughter-in-law, Mica; grandchildren Kristina, Nicole, Samantha, Jessicah, Joshua, Myrissa, Sinnthya, Jesse, Adam, Anna, Mary Jo, Alannah, and Ashley; niece Debra Burns and nephew Dennis Doty; brother-and-sister-in law Lee and Valarie Hoppin, niece Miranda and nephew Evan Hoppin. His great-grandson, Haven B. Charlie Elms, was born on Charlie's 68th birthday. His passing was preceded by his father, Herman Elms and his stepfather Tom Mulligan. Charlie and Lynn are grateful for the years of caring and support from family and friends. The list is endless, but special mention go to his best friend Bill Petty, Kris Fitzsimmons, Kathy Forman, Carol Waltman, Jeannie and Al Larkin, Armin and Nancy Sommer, Gil and Phyllis Moore and Bob Smith. For many years Charlie appreciated very special friendships with Phyllis Carmichael, Annikki Hakala, Mi-Lou Trask, Kris Rohren and Cathy and Nick Schoeder. We are also especially grateful for the outstanding care provided by Drs. Paul Anderson and Matthew Logsdon at RMCC, Dr. Dennis Schneider, Dr. Jack Adams, Dr. Joel Ernster, Dr. Gil Porat, Dr. Pierre Anctil and Dr. Bob Munson. Thank you also to Carla Ryan, RN and Darlene (Perki) Meyerson, CNA, and especially, to Jennifer Gail Adams, our caregiver, for her love and friendship this past year. Charlie and his family also received outstanding care from the staff of Evercare Hospice during his last weeks. Charlie's wish is that, in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to Rocky Mountain Cancer Center at 3057 N. Circle, Colorado Springs, Co, 80909.

Elwin, George
George Elwin – Durango Democrat – July 1, 1902 – Right to Picket – Will Be Tested in Pueblo – Funeral of Elwin to Be Largely Attended – Pueblo, Colo., June 30 – The funeral of George Elwin, the Cooks and Waiters' union picket, who was shot and killed in front of the Riverside restaurant Thursday morning by Jacob Dodgson, was held at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon. The members of sixty-five labor organizations in Pueblo, together with from two to three hundred unionists from Cripple Creek, Victor, Denver, Colorado Springs and coal camps in that vicinity, will attend. There is much indignation among the laboring men over the killing and the authorities, fearing trouble, have ordered a large number of extra policemen on duty. Rifle Reveille - July 11, 1902 - The coroner's jury at Pueblo in the case of the death of George Elwin returned a verdict as follows: "We, the jury, find that the said George Elwin came to his death by a gunshot wound at the hands of one Jacob Dodgson, with felonious intent to-wit: Being continually harassed and aggravated by the said George Elwin and others picketing before his (Dodgson's) place of business, he did, under great excitement and mental strain, and through fear of bodily harm, commit such act. We further deplore the existing state of affairs, wherein citizens are refused protection in the pursuit of legitimate business, by the police force of the city."

Emmons, Frank
Frank Emmons – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – March 20, 1879 – Murder – A private letter of the date of March 7th, just received from Animas City says the Tribune, states that news had that day arrived from Montezuma Valley, which a short distance west of the Mancos river, in La Plata county, that John Watkins, had killed Frank Emmons, shooting him five times, twice in the arms, twice in the legs and once through the heart. The cause of the shooting is not yet known. Watkins and James Belmar were in charge of a flock of sheep belonging to Mr. Daniel Culver, a well known merchant of Animas City, which they had taken on shares. Watkins evidently went about the murder very deliberately as he first gave a bill of sale to Belmar for his interest in the flock and then told him he was going to kill Emmons. He rode up to the camp where the latter was and deliberately shot him down, and while Emmons was lying on the ground shot him again. He then left, and is supposed to have gone to New Mexico. Emmons died in a half hour after being shot. Watkins was formerly from Huerfano county, where his parents still reside. Frank Emmons came to Colorado from Manchester, New Hampshire, and during the rebellion enlisted in the Ninth New Hampshire volunteers, in which he became a lieutenant and in command of a company. For some bad conduct he was dismissed, but afterwards enlisted in the Second Louisiana volunteers (union) at New Orleans under Butler. After the war he enlisted in the regular army, and upon his discharge wandered into the San Juan. He was a man of good education, but of dissipated habits, and thievish in his proclivities. There is little likelihood that Watkins will put himself in reach of the sheriff. The country in which the murder was committed is very wild and unsettled. It is near the boundary lines of Utah, New Mexico and Arizona, which territories will afford the murderer limitless chances of escape.

Emrich, Horace H.
Horace H. Emrich - Rocky Mountain News - October 21, 1911 - Horace H. Emrich, one of the best known graduates of the Colorado State School of Mines, died Wednesday at Kishtyn, Russia. He was shot in his office and notice has been received that the funeral will be Kishtyn Friday afternoon. He was general manager for an English company owning extensive copper mines and of smelters at Kishtyn. About one year ago the vaults of the company were robbed and he was active in prosecuting the robbers. It is presumed that in this he incurred the enmity of friends of the robbers, and that his death was the result. This theory, however, is only problematical in the absence of any further advices from Mrs. Emrich. His mother and two brothers, Clarence and Jay, live in Golden and his sister, Mrs. Alfred J. Nichols, lives at 4905 East Twenty-second Avenue. Mrs. Emrich's mother is Mrs. Nina P. Robinson, 2025 Fairfax Street. Mrs. Emrich stated she will leave as soon as possible for Denver.

For many years he and his brother, Charles took part in bronc riding and relay races at the Colorado State Fair. He also participated in Cheyenne Frontier Days, and was the first man ever to ride the notorious horse "Steamboat." He raised running horses as a sideline. Mr. England was born June 28, 1876, at Undercliffe, 20 miles southeast of Pueblo, where his pioneer parents, Mr. and Mrs. James England, had a farm. They came to Colorado from Georgia by ox team in 1860. As a child he attended rural schools, and at the age of 12 went on his first trail herd trip. At 17, he took a job with the UX outfit on the Cimarron River, then in Indian country. He worked for them three years, making yearly trips from Indian Territory to Montana, crossing Colorado, Wyoming and Montana trailing herds of cattle. Each trip took nine months to go and three months to return. The Arkansas was crossed at the present Caddoa Dam site. The largest herd England trailed consisted of 3,300 head of cattle and it took 11 men in the crew – eight cowpokes, a foreman, a horse wrangler, and a cook. There were no fences or gates to slow down the trail trip. In 1896 England went to work for the Pool outfit on the Huerfano, and later to the Stanley ranch, 20 miles south of Pueblo, riding 14 broncs the first day. His salary was $25 a month. Three years later he moved to the Livesey ranch, 10 miles west of Pueblo. He was married Oct. 1, 1902, to Miss Birdie A. Wood of Pueblo, and went on his own ranch on the Huerfano. The couple celebrated their golden wedding in 1952, and Mrs. England died in July of last year. In 1907 Mr. England went to Yampa on the western slope and worked for the Seven Outfit and for the Yampa Valley Cattle Co. He purchased a ranch in that section, but in 1917 returned to Avondale and bought a home. In 1918, he went to South Dakota to work for A.T. Rock and for the Lance Creek Livestock Co. They again returned to Avondale, and in 1927, he went to work for the Meyers Land and Cattle Co., becoming foreman and manager. It was his last job from which he retired in 1945.

Erringer, Joe
Joe Erringer – Creede Candle – July 23, 1904 – Joe Erringer died at the insane asylum at Pueblo last Monday. Albert, a brother of the deceased from Lacon, Ill., who arrived shortly after Joe was taken to Pueblo, is here looking after what effects might have been left by deceased with the apparent intent of taking what he can regardless of the accounts of creditors. There are some accounts against the estate that the conservator has the money to settle, but Brother Albert is endeavoring to get the county judge to issue an order on the conservator to pay bills that he contracted in the way of extra funeral expenses, in preference to Joe's bills contracted while living here, which could and should have been paid upon his being taken to the asylum. From our conversation with brother Albert he does not seem inclined to settle up Joe's personal accounts here providing there is not enough left in the hands of the conservator after paying the bill that he himself contracted while attending Joe at his death. It is yet to be seen whether what Joe left is to pay his accounts or the accounts of his affectionate brother, who has carelessly intimated to some here that he is well circumstanced. The total indebtedness against the estate will not exceed $200 and deceased left in cash a little over $125. The accounts against the estate are for board, nurse hire, drug and doctor bills and a few other incidental accounts, all contracted by Joe when sick. Joe was not a pauper and had he been penniless he had friends who would have seen to his wants and taken care of him before allowing him to become a charge upon the county and every debt that Joe contracted before his death would have been paid if brother Albert had not made additional accounts that were not necessary when he does not care to pay them himself.

Erwin, Elmer G.
Elmer G. Erwin - Memorial to Fallen Officers - The presence of the Memorial to Fallen Officers in the lobby of the Colorado Corrections Training Academy, Caρon City, stands as an everlasting symbol of honor to the fourteen men who have given their lives in the line of duty. The Colorado DOC recognizes the ultimate price paid, dedication and loyalty of the following men: Riot - 1929 - October 3, 1929 - The deadly riot of October 3, 1929, at the Colorado State Penitentiary was preceded earlier that summer by a series of riots in two New York prisons and the Federal Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas. These riots prompted rumors that an organized effort to disrupt the nation's prison system was underway. The riots left 8 staff dead. Details of the tragedy indicated that it was the "bloodiest chapter in the history of the Colorado State Prison." Not only were lives lost, but also large sections of the prison were destroyed by fire. It is estimated that over 2,000 rounds of ammunition were fired during the melee. Perhaps these words written in the Warden's Report to the Colorado Board of Corrections in 1930 say it best: "I wish at this time to commend them for their bravery, loyalty and the supreme sacrifice they made. Their memories will always be held in the deepest reverence and respect by the officials and remaining co-workers." The following men lost their lives in the line of duty: Elmer G. Erwin - Officer Erwin died at age 62. A native of Indiana, Erwin had first worked as a guard at the Silver Spruce Camp between Canon City and Salida. Erwin had been married to the former Gladys Bailey of Cotopaxi; he was an Elk and was said to be "well known about the town, with a large circle of friends."

Esquibel, J.D.
Sheriff J.D. Esquibel - Huerfano Herald – January 20, 1881 - Dreadful Murder - Sheriff Esquibel Ruthlessly Shot Down - While Engaged in the Discharge of Duty - This community was shocked and astounded Sunday afternoon by the receipt of a telegram announcing that Sheriff J.D. Esquibel, of this county, had been shot in cold blood the night previous and was at that time quietly breathing his last. The news was soon corroborated by the receipt of another telegram announcing his death and requesting that Coroner Kincaid be notified. The feeling in this community can hardly be expressed. The news fell like a pall upon La Veta and expressions of deep regret and sincere sympathy were freely indulged in. To obtain as near as possible accurate information concerning the lamentable affair, we visited the scene of the murder, Walsenburg, on Monday and were present at the coroner's inquest. On Saturday night a Mexican dance was given in Walsenburg, and as is too frequently the case at such affairs, too much whiskey was indulged in. At Gordon's saloon a number of men were drinking and one or two of them became rather noisy. The constable undertook to arrest one, but was making poor headway when Sheriff Esquibel came to his relief and offered assistance. At this juncture a section man by the name of McGin... and determination, was fast quelling the disturbance when three shots were fired, the second striking him full in the breast and making a mortal wound. He was tenderly assisted to his residence and Dr. Eddy sent for, who administered to the dying man all that medical skill could suggest to smothe (sp) his last hours. The ball entered the right breast two inches to the left of the nipple, penetrating to the vertebra, glancing downward and out on the right side, in its course passing through the right lung and the liver. The dying man lingered until about noon Sunday, when he peacefully and quietly breathed his last, surrounded by loving friends and relatives. The lamentable affair occurred between 12 and 1 o'clock Saturday night. The coroner arriving Monday night, at once impaneled a jury and held an inquest at 7 1-2 (?) o'clock. The following is the verdict: State of Colorado, County Of Huerfano - An inquisition holden at Walsenburg, in Huerfano County, on the 17th day of Jan. A.D. 1881, before J.H. Kincaid, coroner of said county, upon the dead body of J.D. Esquibel, lying there dead, by the jurors whose names are hereunto subscribed, the said jurors, upon their oaths do say that the said Esquibel came to his death from a pistol shot fired feloniously by a man now in custody, but whose name is unknown to the jurors, and we further find a certain man, a section boss, by the name of McGin, an accessory in the crime. In testimony whereof the said jurors have hereunto set their hands the day and year above written. Signed H.B. Harvey, Isaac Dailey, J.M. Alexander, Jno. Barard, Jos. Bourcy, A.H. Eddy. Jose R. Esquibel, brother of the deceased, states that he was present at the shooting, and gives the following information: The shooting occurred in the street...guilty parties. Two or three men were noticed to be nervous and excited and anxious to get away the day following the shooting, but the men arrested were unconcerned and seemed to have no thought of their names being connected with the unfortunate affair. We afterward hunted up McGin and obtained his statement. He claims to have been 15 rods from the shooting with perhaps fifty men between him and the sheriff at the time he was shot. He and the sheriff were the best of friends, like brothers - that he saw nor knew nothing of the row until the shooting was over. McGin was rather well dressed, has the appearance of an intelligent, good-looking man, with rather prepossessing manners. He uses good language and favorably impresses one in conversation. His age is 31. The sheriff is said to have made a dying statement to the effect that McGin did the shooting but the latter states that he called on him Sunday morning and he denied the statement. McGin denies that "Kansas" undertook to gain possession of his pistol. He had nothing to say or do with "Kansas" during the evening. The remains of our dead sheriff were viewed Tuesday by a large number of mourning friends. In fact there has never been a death in Walsenburg that fell so like a pall over the entire community. He has lived in Huerfano county 13 years, been three times elected Sheriff and always performed his duties faithfully and well. He was intelligent, respected and highly esteemed by all. At 10:30 on Tuesday his remains were tenderly consigned to mother earth Rev. Gabr. Ussel conducting the last sad rites in the beautiful and impressive manner of the Catholic faith. The unfortunate affair is one greatly to be lamented and one that calls forth sincere regret from all parties irrespective of race. The matter was laid before the Grand Jury on Tuesday, and no doubt the guilty party will be in the hands of the law by the time this reaches the reader. Huerfano World - February 25, 1993 - This Week in Walsenburg History - 1881: The county commissioners are offering a $500 reward for the arrest and delivery of the body of Henry McGin, one of the men indicted for the murder of Sheriff J.D. Esquibel last month. Huerfano World - October 20, 1994 - This Week in Walsenburg History - 1881: Joseph Grant, alias Kansas, in jail since February for the murder of Sheriff J.D. Esquibel, will be tried in district court this week. Central City Daily Register-Call - December 7, 1881 - Western News - The jury in the case of Grant, who is on trial for the wilful (sic) murder of ex-Sheriff Esquibal, of Huerfano county, came into court this morning, after being locked up all night. The counsel for the state, Hon. Robert Quillian, made a strong speech for the state, and was followed by the counsel for the defense, when the case was given to the jury. At half-past 10 o'clock this morning they sent word to the court that they had agreed. The prisoner was brought into court, looking quite happy, and took a seat by the side of his counsel, Hon. G. Q. Richmond. The verdict was read aloud by the court, announcing that Joseph Grand was not guilty. The prisoner was immediately discharged.

Estey, Robert B.
Robert B. Estey – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – November 2, 1914 – Leadville's Veteran Mining Man Passes Away at Ripe Old Age – Prominently Identified With Life of District – Robert B. Estey died at Boulder yesterday afternoon. The telephone message to this effect was received by Mr. A. V. Hunter, of this city, and later in the evening Mr. Norman Estey gave the intelligence to the Herald Democrat. Mrs. Estey, the widow, and Norman Estey, the son, live at 1662 Pearl street in Denver. During the afternoon yesterday word reached them that Mr. Estey, at the Boulder sanitarium, was sinking rapidly. His son at once started for Boulder, but before he could reach the bedside, Mr. Estey was dead. About two years ago failing health compelled Mr. Estey to retire from active business life. He spent some time at Clark's Wells in Pueblo, and a year ago appeared to be considerably improved. While the symptoms of disease appeared to leave him, he slowly and steadily grew weaker, and a short time ago went to the Boulder sanitarium, within easy reach of Denver so that his wife and son were enabled to spend much of their time at his bedside. Mr. Estey was 79 years old at the time of his death. "Mr. Estey has done more for the mining industry of Leadville than any other single man," was the tribute paid last night to his memory by John Groberg, who for twenty-seven years has been his most trusted mining superintendent and close personal friend. No man acquainted with the work which Mr. Estey has done in this district will doubt for a moment the truth of this tribute. Since 1879 he had been closely identified with the development of the district and was the active promoter of many of its largest and most important enterprises. Robert B. Estey was born 79 years ago at Calais, Maine, of old New England ancestors. When a mere boy Mr. Estey was attracted by the stories from the golden shores of California and was among the first of the Argonauts to reach that promised land. He made the trip across the Isthmus of Panama and spent several years in the pioneer days of the first gold discovery on the Pacific coast. Mr. Estey later lived in Nevada where he actively engaged in mining, laying the foundation for a practical knowledge of the business combined with a thorough technical training which proved later so valuable to him when he came to the Leadville district. He arrived here in 1879, and one of his first mining ventures was the sinking of a shaft on Iron Hill not far from the Silver Cord. Later he became associated with Mr. S. W. Mudd in the development of property on Carbonate Hill, operating for some time the Leadville Consolidated Mining company group. In the early nineties Mr. Estey organized the Union Leasing and Mining company, the first attempt at consolidation in the Leadville district. The properties acquired by the company consisted of a number of claims on East Fryer Hill which hitherto had been operated individually, but owing to heavy pumping expenses could not be worked to a profit. The Union company established a central pumping plant at the El Paso shaft and drained the East Fryer Hill (?) basin, taking out several million dollars worth of ore up to the time of the strike. After the Union company ceased operations, Mr. Estey, either individually or through various companies in which he became actively interested, sank a number of shafts in many portions of the district, and did much toward the development of its geology and the opening up of important ore bodies. Among these enterprises were the Rialto, the Comstock, the Revenue, and the Delante. The Coronado Mining company, one of the largest producers in the Downtown district, was one of Mr. Estey's most successful enterprises. A few years ago he and Mr. Norman Estey, his son, who was associated with him in his mining ventures, operated the Chippewa mine successfully. Mr. Estey was an authority on the geology of the Leadville district. Mining men found him to be a storehouse of knowledge concerning the geological formations and ore deposits, and the promoters of many large mining enterprises in which he was not financially interested eagerly sought his advice and counsel. Mr. Estey was associated in many important mining enterprises, with prominent eastern capitalists who relied implicitly on his judgment and knowledge of the mining business. He was engaged with Mr. S. W. Mudd for a number of years and entered into an active partnership with the late Henry L. Higgins. His relations with his employes and business associates were of the most cordial character. He treated his men justly and generously. The men who served him faithfully he usually retained in his employe, and some of the best and oldest miners in the district were associated underground with the veteran mining man. Engaged as he was during the many years of his active life in ___ing to his many mining ventures and enterprises, Mr. Estey apparently had little time for recreation. He found, however, one source of genuine pleasure and amusement. During the fishing season he took his rod and line and spent days at a time along the banks of the Eagle river, his favorite fishing ground. Leadville will today pay its tribute of respect and admiration to Mr. Estey, for it is to him and men like him that this district owes its prosperity and its importance. He made money, only to spend it again in opening up new sections and new mines. He was a type of the true western mining spirit, the spirit of venture, the spirit to which the west owes its greatness.

Evans, Flora
Flora Evans - Huerfano World Journal - August 01, 2008 - Evans Murder Mystery - Haunted houses. Screams in the night. Blood, gore and maniacs with meat cleavers. Tall tales to scare people or reality? Many Huerfanos grew up with stories told to scare them as they passed a lonely ranch east of I-25. Seventy-four years ago, the World Independent's banner headline was not about Hitler's rise to power that August, but about a heinous murder in Huerfano County. At 10 am on August 3, 1934, Gene Brinker and Ollie Scott, two highway bridge workers, found the bodies of William and Flora Evans. William, 71, and Flora, 65, had been hacked to death. Mr. Evans was found in the front door with his head inside the parlor and his feet on the front porch. Mrs. Evans was found outside, just north of the house. Sheriff Harry Capps and his deputies arrived to find a gruesome and puzzling murder scene. Blood was splattered all over the house. Yet no valuables had been taken. Jewelry and money lay untouched, and the house was tidy. The only sign of a struggle was a tipped over rocking chair. The attacks began in the bedroom with blood trails beginning on the pillowcases. Mrs. Evans was the first attacked. She and her husband fled the bedroom. Mr. Evans, in an attempt to escape the assailant, threw the rocker down. He was caught as he reached the front door where he was slashed and his skull beaten to a pulp. Mrs. Evans ran for the kitchen and then out towards the highway where she was cut down. The maniac hacked at her head and shoulders until she fell. Evidence showed that she bled to death. No motive could be found for the murders. A posse hunted for a maniac who had escaped from the Pueblo Asylum on July 27 with a fellow inmate. Known to be dangerous, George Scholl was said to be heading for the Walsenburg and Gardner area. The Sheriff therefore suspected Scholl had committed the murders. The sheriff's department, joined by the couple's son, Frank Evans of Colorado Springs, combed the area for Scholl. They also searched for a mysterious touring car that had been seen at 7:30 am in front of the Evans house, just before the murders were discovered. Another mystery was that Mr. Evans' horse was found saddled and bridled in the barn the morning of the murder. Mr. Evans, a farmer, would never have left a horse in that condition. It was speculated that the murderer had planned to escape on horseback and then changed his mind. The only other evidence to be found was that someone had lain on the guest bed at some point. The pillow was disturbed but the bed not slept in. The County Coroner, Dr. S.J. Lamme, shocked the audience at the inquest held a few days later as he described the horrific wounds. Evidence presented by various witnesses gave a glimpse of the Evans' last night. Mrs. Evans returned home around 7 pm with Guy Schlink Jr. and Zelma Sefton who had been visiting. At some point in the evening, the couple sat in the parlor and read their copy of the World Independent. John McQuade, the night watchman at the construction site on the highway, heard noises and knocking about around 10 pm. This was the time Dr. S. J. Lamme approximated the couple had died. However, since he saw no lights, he ignored the noises. A few days later on August 7, a house in Beulah was invaded by a mysterious man who stood over the bed of a young boy and then disappeared when another family member coughed in his sleep. The man escaped and was not found. The description matched that of George Scholl. On August 8, R.L. Laird of Denver was assigned to the Evans murder. He was deputized by Sheriff Harry Capps and given full authority to solve the most brutal murder in Colorado's history. To date, the case has not been solved.

Evans, Florence May
Florence May Evans – Colorado Daily Chieftain – October 17, 1875 - The Canon City Calamity - The unfortunate occurrences mentioned in yesterday morning's dispatches are even more deplorable than at first supposed. Mrs. Evans, her child, and Mrs. Evans sister, Miss Buckingham, are all three dead. Mr. Evans left his house about 5:50 P.M., saying, "get supper ready and I will be down soon." In a half hour thereafter, a young girl was seen running from the house enveloped in flames. She fell into the gutter and was picked up by passing parties. Then the house was discovered in flames. The neighbors rushed in and found Mrs. Evans standing with all her clothes burned off except her corsets and a few shreds, with the infant lying between her feet screaming. The whole three were carried into an adjoining building. The mother lay upon the floor burned from head to foot - one solid mass of burned flesh; the sister on a bed, terribly burned and moaning in intense agony. The infant, three months old, was not supposed to be so badly burned. Its cries were heart rending. The mother about ten o'clock asked for her husband. He was called, and in a whisper she bade him good bye. Frequently during the evening she whispered her wishes that she might be given something to end her misery and put her out of existence. About ten o'clock she died, and before morning her child and sister died in intense agony. The scene at the depot, as given us by an eye witness, was one circulated to move the stoutest heart. The husband and father paced the depot platform frantically. His grief knew no bounds. Presently a conveyance drove up. A small coffin was removed and placed in the baggage car. This contained the little babe. Next came the wife and her sister. The dead having been deposited in the car, the husband was helped to a seat and the train started for Colorado Springs. As far as can be ascertained this melancholy affair was the result of the careless use of kerosene. It is said that Miss Buckingham attempted to light a fire with the treacherous fluid, when it caught and the can exploding covered the three unfortunates with the blazing oil. Mr. Evans had been in the express business at Colorado Springs for several months before removing to Canon City. His late wife is a sister of Mr. R. Buckingham, the proprietor of the Colorado Springs Free Press. She was a lady of fine personal appearance, and above all a kind wife and affectionate mother. The remains of the three will probably be interred at Colorado Springs. Note: This baby was buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs under the last name of Evens. Her tombstone states that she was 4 months, and 15 days old, and was the daughter of C. F. and Jennie Evens, when she died on October 15, 1875.

Evans, Violet
Violet Evans – Eagle County News – March 24, 1923 – Storm Isolates Colorado Towns – Entire Country Is Gripped In Worst Storms of Winter – Nation is Snowbound – Many Dead as Storm Sweeps West; Drifts Isolate Towns – Pueblo. – At least three more names were added to the already long list of persons who are believed to have perished in storms on Colorado's plains by the recent blizzard which swept over the state. The three known dead are Violet, Margaret and Howard, children of Mr. and Mrs. Allen Evans of Baxter, five miles south of Pueblo. The three little bodies were found huddled together in a small shanty where they sought refuge from the storm. A fifty-mile gale blowing, accompanying the blizzard unroofed buildings, blew down street lamps and caused destruction that cannot be estimated. During the gale fire alarms were turned in from the state hospital for the insane and the Missouri Pacific stockyards. At the stockyards all buildings except a hotel were burned. The damage was estimated at $50,000, with the wind blowing the fire along the lines of fencing.

Evans, William
William Evans - Huerfano World Journal - August 01, 2008 - Evans Murder Mystery - Haunted houses. Screams in the night. Blood, gore and maniacs with meat cleavers. Tall tales to scare people or reality? Many Huerfanos grew up with stories told to scare them as they passed a lonely ranch east of I-25. Seventy-four years ago, the World Independent's banner headline was not about Hitler's rise to power that August, but about a heinous murder in Huerfano County. At 10 am on August 3, 1934, Gene Brinker and Ollie Scott, two highway bridge workers, found the bodies of William and Flora Evans. William, 71, and Flora, 65, had been hacked to death. Mr. Evans was found in the front door with his head inside the parlor and his feet on the front porch. Mrs. Evans was found outside, just north of the house. Sheriff Harry Capps and his deputies arrived to find a gruesome and puzzling murder scene. Blood was splattered all over the house. Yet no valuables had been taken. Jewelry and money lay untouched, and the house was tidy. The only sign of a struggle was a tipped over rocking chair. The attacks began in the bedroom with blood trails beginning on the pillowcases. Mrs. Evans was the first attacked. She and her husband fled the bedroom. Mr. Evans, in an attempt to escape the assailant, threw the rocker down. He was caught as he reached the front door where he was slashed and his skull beaten to a pulp. Mrs. Evans ran for the kitchen and then out towards the highway where she was cut down. The maniac hacked at her head and shoulders until she fell. Evidence showed that she bled to death. No motive could be found for the murders. A posse hunted for a maniac who had escaped from the Pueblo Asylum on July 27 with a fellow inmate. Known to be dangerous, George Scholl was said to be heading for the Walsenburg and Gardner area. The Sheriff therefore suspected Scholl had committed the murders. The sheriff's department, joined by the couple's son, Frank Evans of Colorado Springs, combed the area for Scholl. They also searched for a mysterious touring car that had been seen at 7:30 am in front of the Evans house, just before the murders were discovered. Another mystery was that Mr. Evans' horse was found saddled and bridled in the barn the morning of the murder. Mr. Evans, a farmer, would never have left a horse in that condition. It was speculated that the murderer had planned to escape on horseback and then changed his mind. The only other evidence to be found was that someone had lain on the guest bed at some point. The pillow was disturbed but the bed not slept in. The County Coroner, Dr. S.J. Lamme, shocked the audience at the inquest held a few days later as he described the horrific wounds. Evidence presented by various witnesses gave a glimpse of the Evans' last night. Mrs. Evans returned home around 7 pm with Guy Schlink Jr. and Zelma Sefton who had been visiting. At some point in the evening, the couple sat in the parlor and read their copy of the World Independent. John McQuade, the night watchman at the construction site on the highway, heard noises and knocking about around 10 pm. This was the time Dr. S. J. Lamme approximated the couple had died. However, since he saw no lights, he ignored the noises. A few days later on August 7, a house in Beulah was invaded by a mysterious man who stood over the bed of a young boy and then disappeared when another family member coughed in his sleep. The man escaped and was not found. The description matched that of George Scholl. On August 8, R.L. Laird of Denver was assigned to the Evans murder. He was deputized by Sheriff Harry Capps and given full authority to solve the most brutal murder in Colorado's history. To date, the case has not been solved.

Ewing, Thomas
Thomas Ewing - Wray Rattler - June 28, 1907 - Three Blown Into Eternity - Boiler on Engine Explodes With Terrific Force - The boiler on engine No. 110 of a Denver & Rio Grande westbound train exploded just as the train rounded a curve one mile east of Florence at 5:30 the morning of June 19th. The engineer, fireman, and head brakeman were instantly killed. The body of the engineer, Thomas Ewing, was blown sixty-five yards to the right of the cab. The body of the fireman, N. J. O'Brien, was found 100 yards back of the engine close to the track. There were about ten cars of rails in the train, and about the tenth car, the body of the fireman struck the rails. He slid along until he struck one of the standards of the car and fell from there to the ground, his body being picked up just at the side of the track. The head brakeman, who was evidently riding on the fireman's side of the cab, was C. B. Gooch. He was found fifty yards to the left of the train. His back was badly scalded and he was internally injured. Ewing, the engineer, had a wife and three children living at Pueblo. Some years ago he was night marshal at Florence. N. J. O'Brien, the fireman, was evidently throwing a shovelful of coal into the fire at the time of the explosion. His body is badly burned all over and he must have traveled over the tender and a distance of fully ten car lengths before he fell from the train. Head Brakeman Gooch lived a few minutes after his body was found. Gooch and O'Brien also lived in Pueblo and O'Brien leaves a widow and two children. Gooch was single. Boiler Flew Far. The crown sheet of the boiler was found about twenty yards from where the explosion took place, but the boiler bounded ahead, struck the rails about 100 feet ahead of where it burst and bounded from there to a field at the right of the track. From there it took another jump and eventually landed about eighty yards from where the trucks were left standing uninjured upon the track. John Martz, the conductor in charge of the train, claims that while riding in the caboose at 5:32 o'clock he heard the terrific explosion and the sudden jar of the train, and, as he looked out, he saw the bodies of the three men sailing through the air. An examination of the boiler by engineers of experience shows that the water was very low. The crown sheet was burned badly and the heads of many rivets burned off. Ewing, the engineer, was a member of the local lodge of Masons of Florence and also a member of the Pueblo lodge of Elks. But little appears to be known of Brakeman Gooch, he having been a new man on this division.

Aurello Ezparsa - Basalt Journal - May 12, 1906 - Edward Springer of La Veta shot and instantly killed Aurello Ezparsa near Sunnyside last Sunday night. The killing was kept quiet in order to prevent possible trouble from friends of the dead man. Springer had left his horse tied in front of a saloon and a friend took it and rode it to the Rocky Mountain mine. Springer telephoned to the mine for his horse and man who rode it away sent it back by Ezparsa. Springer met Ezparsa on the road riding his horse and immediately shot him dead. Rev. Mr. Millsap, a Methodist minister of Gardner, was an eye-witness to the killing. Springer had been drinking.
