Faber, John
John Faber - Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – December 28, 1876 – Murder in Las Animas – The Allison Desperadoes Make A Raid on West Las Animas – It is our sorrowful duty to record the death of another officer – one highly esteemed in the community. Last night about twelve o'clock, or a few minutes later (railroad time) Constable Charles Faber, in attempting to disarm John and Clay Allison, at the Olympic dance hall, was fired upon by both of them and fell at the first shot. He was armed with a shot gun which he discharged about the same time, and from which John Allison received slight wounds. After Faber fell the Allison's continued to fire at his lifeless body. An eye witness informs us that after the shooting, while John Allison was lying on a pallet, his brother dragged the body of Faber up near him and said "John, here's the man that shot you; look at this G-d d--d s-n of a b---h; I killed him!". And again, just as the wounded man was about to be removed to the hotel, his brother tapped the corpse on the head, called his attention to it saying: "John, there's the d---d sob that shot you, and I killed him." It appears that a short time before Faber had demanded their arms and they had defied him to arrest them. When the constable entered the hall to make arrest he had two or three assistants with him, but it appears they were of no service to him, for they fled into the street at the first shot. Clay Allison went out on the steps and fired at them when they fled. It is not known who they were. The Allison brothers were arrested by Sheriff Spiers at the Vandiver House a short time after the shooting. But for one of them being wounded the probability is they would have made good their escape. They are from Cimarron, New Mexico, and are notorious as defilers of the law. They were here a little over a year ago, when they made threats of running the town, and used their pistols rather promiscuously. Charles Faber was an excellent officer, gentlemanly, discreet and brave. His manner toward prisoners was gentle and kind. His death is a painful blow to the community, and it is needless to say that considerable excitement prevails today. Coroner Reedy summoned a jury and held an inquest this morning. – (Leader 22nd.) A man who was present in the dance hall in West Las Animas on the evening when the Allison brothers killed the constable one day last week, says the Allison's were both drunk, going around the hall and trying to provoke a fight. They insulted men they never saw before, and went so far as to amuse themselves by tramping the toes of the bystanders in the hope of creating a disturbance, in order that they might shoot somebody. Our informant left the hall, fearing that some difficulty would follow, and soon after learned of the murder of the constable. When the Allison's were being taken to jail, the one who was unhurt glared around at the crowd more like a lunatic than a sane man. People in this region have been looking for a lynching match down at Wes Las Animas, but the people there don't seem to act as promptly as formerly in such little matters.

Fairchild, Henry N.
Henry N. Fairchild - Rocky Mountain News - January 7, 1895 - Fairchild's Death - Bright and Genial Nature Destroyed by Despondency - Harry N. Fairchild died at the insane asylum at Pueblo last evening.  The end has been expected by his friends in this city since he was committed to the asylum three weeks ago. His condition at that time was precarious and the physicians did not think that he would long survive.  The trial in the county court attracted great attention and the audience was composed of some of the best known politicians in the state.  Harry Fairchild was formerly deputy secretary of state under Melvin Edwards.  For some time he has been despondent at the failure to pass the bill to pension the prisoners at Andersonville.  He endured the horrors of that dungeon for many a wary month and was deeply interested in the act pending before congress for the relief of the veterans who were detained until their exchange could be effected.  The first thing that attracted the attention of his friends to the fact that his mind was unbalanced was his appearance at the court house and his inability to find his way about, although he was perfectly familiar with every room and corridor. When the trial was in progress he spent the time in informing the court that "I Harry Nelson Fairchild am the first god of the earth."  The scene beggars him to the days when his wit was quick and his perception the brightest, wept at the sad sight. He was known as a generous man and his death will be universally regretted by a wide circle of friends.

Farber, Jake
Jake Farber - The Independent – Vol. XXIII, No. 2 - Walsenburg, Colorado - December 12, 1930 - Floater Killed as Convicts are Captured – Edward Kelley and Jack Flood, Convicts, Captured and Lodged in Walsenburg Jail - Pueblo Officers Attempt Unaided Raid on Fleeing Convicts and Shoot to Stop the Fleeing Men, Killing One. Jake Farber, 47 years old, riding a freight train, lost his life Thursday noon when Pueblo county officers engaged in a battle in the capture of two convicts who escaped from the penitentiary at Canon City last Saturday. The two convicts were of a party of four who climbed the walls of the penitentiary last Saturday, using a rake attached to a piece of iron pipe. The four convicts were Wilbur Eslick, Ernest Herze, Edward Kelly and Jack Flood. Eslick was captured shortly after his escape at Cotopaxi, Colo. Ernest Hertze was captured later. The other two convicts, Edward Kelley and Jack Flood, sent up from Denver for robbery, were the two who were taken in Walsenburg yesterday. According to the story, as told by one of the captured men, they had spent three days not over eight miles from the pen walls, hiding in the hills. Later they reached the open country a few miles south of Pueblo and boarded a D. &R.G.W. freight train on its way to Walsenburg. Sheriff Sam A. Curran of Pueblo and two city detectives, Joe Zeller and Richard Anderson, were tipped off that the men were on a freight going south. Not notifying either the Canon City authorities or the Huerfano county officers the three officers raced to Walsenburg and flagged the train when it was about a mile and a half out of Walsenburg. The officers walked along the train two on each side and examined the freight cars. Four men got out of one car. One of the officers fired a shot to notify their comrades on the other side of the train. The four men from the box car began to run. They were commanded to stop. They kept on running and one of the officers fired and a man fell. The others stopped. The wounded man was shot thru the chest with a 30-30 soft bullet. He died shortly afterwards. The bullet which entered his chest grazed the hand of one of the fleeing men and wounded another in the leg. The two slightly wounded men were the convicts, Jack Flood and Edward Kelley. The fourth man, a youth of 20 years, was not touched. The officers brought the three men and fatally wounded one to Walsenburg where Jake Farber died. An examination of the effects of the dead man disclosed a Woodman of the World receipt issued April 10, 1930. He was also carrying a vehicle license issued in 1925 at Myrtle Creek, Oregon. Thru the head office of the Woodmen of the World in Denver it was learned that the dead man has three children living at Park City, Utah. They are Emma, Frank and Varna Farber. (Last child should be Bernetta) The fourth man who was on the train with the convicts was Carmen August, who gave his home address as Tomahaw, Wis., and stated that he was 20 years of age. "I hopped the train at Pueblo," he stated, "to go to Trinidad. I was riding on a flat car. Out of Pueblo some distance another man hopped on the train. Some time afterward the train was running rather slow and I saw two other men hop the freight. You know how it is. I was alone and joined the other men for company. I had no idea who they were. "When the train stopped and I saw the men coming along the side of the cars, the other jumped off and I jumped, too. I thought they were railroad men and when my companions started to run I ran, too. I heard the men call to us to stop, but all I thought of was getting off the railroad property and when I got on the other side of the fence along the right of way I stopped. But before I got there I saw a man fall. "While we were talking on the train two of the men told us they were sailors and were bumming their way to Galveston. That is all I know about it." August is being held here in case it is decided to hold an inquest on the slain man. But information from the district attorney's office is that he will not demand a coroner's jury, and Coroner W.S. Chapman has stated that in his opinion an inquest will not be necessary. The wounded convicts, Flood and Kelley, were first taken to the office (article continues on page 8 of paper) of Drs. Chapman and Noonan, and their wound dressed. They were then taken to the county jail to await the coming of officers from Canon City. Deputy Warden Pat Hamrock and two other officials from the penitentiary arrived in Walsenburg Thursday evening about 7 o'clock and returned to Canon City with the captured men. One of the convicts while at the office of Drs. Chapman and Noonan was asked: "How did you get over those prison walls?" "Oh," he said, "we used a rake with the handle stuck in a long piece of iron pipe. I am a sailor." "What were you in for?" "I held up a man with an empty gun." "How long did you have to serve?" "I only had seven months more." "What did you want to get away for then?" "Well, I didn't exactly want to go, and it was either go along or be a 'snitcher' and we two, who were both sailors during the war, decided to go along. "We only had seven more months, and now I suppose we will have to stay for seven years." The opportunity for the men to escape was made easier by the failure of Frank A. Watt, captain of the guards at the pen, to place a guard on Tower 3 until two hours after the usual time. Deputy Pat Hamrock, it is stated will prefer charges against Watt before the prison board and as for his discharge. In the meantime he has been temporarily suspended. He is 72 years old and has been a guard for the past 23 years. December 18, 1930 - Body of Jake Farber Lies Unburied in Local Morgue - The body of Jake Farber, ex-member of the Woodmen of the World, still lies on a morgue slab of the Unfug-Peet mortuary rooms awaiting burial thru the efforts of friends, or to be buried in a pauper's grave by the county. Farber was killed by Pueblo county officers near Walsenburg last Thursday. The officers were in pursuit of escaped convicts and started firing on four men as they jumped from a freight train in the C & S yards. Farber was not one of the convicts but was on the road seeking work for the support of his three children who live at Park City, Utah. Papers on his person showed he had once belonged to the Woodmen of the World at Myrtle Creek, Oregon. Communication with authorities at Park City, Utah, revealed that he had three children living there. A request was sent to Huerfano county that the body be shipped to Park City, but it was also stated that the children had no funds for the transportation of the body. It was suggested that since Pueblo county officials were responsible for the death that the county commissioners of Pueblo County be appealed to. Pueblo County, however, refuses to take any responsibility in the matter. It is understood that former friends of the man at Myrtle Grove, Oregon, were endeavoring to raise some money there. A letter has been received from a 14-year old daughter of the dead man begging that the body of her father be sent to her. But where is the money coming from? In the meantime the body of the dead man has lain for over a week at the morgue. Unless word is received from Utah or Oregon soon the body will be laid in a pauper's grave. January 2, 1931 - Bullet That Killed Farber Without Felonious Intent - Various Witnesses Testify at Coroner's Inquest, But no Responsibility Is Fixed by the Jury - An inquest on the death of Jake Farber, killed by Pueblo county peace officers on December 11, held at the court house Tuesday evening, resulted in a verdict that the deceased came to his death from a rifle bullet fired by parties unknown without felonious intent. The inquest was held because of a civil suit that has been filed in the district court by I.E. Schachet, local attorney, against Sheriff Sam A. Curran of Pueblo county, and Joe Zeller and Richard Anderson, Pueblo city detectives. Farber was killed by these officers in a man hunt for two convicts who escaped from the Colorado state penitentiary. The jury Tuesday evening was composed of James Fisk, R.B. Vaughan, Ralph Levy, Charles Owen, Malcolm MacDonald, and Dr. A.A. Unfug. The first witness called to the stand was Dr. G.M. Noonan, who testified to having made an examination of the body of the slain man. He stated that the man died of a gun shot wound which entered the chest from the right side between the seventh and eighth rib, making a small hole at the point of entrance and a hole of one and three-quarters inch at the point of exit on the left side. The doctor also told of a conversation he had had with the two convicts, Flood and Kelley, who stated they were never more than seven miles from the penitentiary during several days, and that they had been shot at by the officers once before, but made an escape by running over the brow of a hill. The convicts were still dressed in their prison garb, but one had discarded his striped shirt and one had a pair of coveralls. Pueblo Sheriff Silent: Sam A. Curran, sheriff of Pueblo County, was then sworn in, but notified by the district attorney, that in view of a civil suit filed against him for damages, he was at liberty to refuse to testify if in his opinion he believed his testimony might prejudice his suit. Sheriff Curran stated that under the circumstances he did not think he cared to testify, but would simply make the statement that he was more than willing that the facts and truth should prevail. John Nesbitt of Pueblo, conductor on the D. & R. G.W. freight train, testified that he saw the officers but did not know them at the time. He had just left the caboose when the train suddenly stopped. When he received the signal to go, he signaled to the engineer and as the train went by he saw the body of the dead man in the snow. He also saw three men running. He heard three shots close together. He did not know who fired the shots. Railroad Men Tell Story: B.C. Youngberg, the brakeman, stated he knew Sheriff Curran by sight but was not acquainted with him. He stated the man at the coal chutes flagged the train. He saw men running, three on right side train, and one on the left. A man on the left side of the train had a rifle and another near the coal chutes was carrying a rifle. He did not see any rifle in Curran's hands. Solomon Vigil of LaVeta testified he was returning from Kansas and boarded a freight at Pueblo. He did not know the convicts or Jake Farber. There were five men running on a flat coal car. He saw the officers standing by the tracks. All five men jumped off the coal car. He heard the call to halt but was scared. He crawled under cars and made his way to highway and caught a ride to LaVeta. Statements Differ: Vigil's statement differs from other witnesses in that he stated that Farber was running in a different direction from the other men. Other witnesses state the men were all running in one direction. The officers were about a hundred yards away. Desiderio Sandoval of Cameron stated he was called to bring the men in to Walsenburg. He saw two wounded men besides Farber. There were no local officers there. Jim Glorioso of Walsenburg, a miner working at Cameron, stated he was standing near the county jail when he saw an officer - not a Huerfano county officer - unloading a rifle and heard him remark: "I got another man." Asked by a juror, "Do you see that officer in the ...... (The article ended and there is no more copy).

Farr, David Ezekiel
David Ezekiel Farr - Walsenburg World - March 21, 1922 - The Life History Of David E. Farr - David Ezekiel Farr was born December 19, 1854 in Ken County, Texas. He was the child of a family of twelve children born to David Henry Farr and his wife, Martha Hurston Farr. His father was a pioneer cattleman in the days when life on this border was full of experiences typical of those romantic days. After taking advantage of the meager school facilities afforded, David, with his brothers, James, Ed, and the late Jefferson B. Farr, was engaged in the cattle business with his father, whose interests extended from the northern states of Mexico to the Kansas trails. Their headquarters were Austin, Texas, where David Farr, Sr. built with his own hands the first brick house in the little settlement which has since become the capital of that great state. Mr. Farr was first married in 1880, and to this union two children, Jessie and James D. were born. The second child, James D. mother died shortly after the birth of [ Karen's note: This is how it reads and is obviously an unfinished sentence.] In January 1885, at Mason, Texas, David Farr married Minnie Taylor, the daughter of a prominent pioneer Texas planter, and one year later moved to Colorado, locating on a ranch on the lower Cucharras River in Huerfano County. In 1886 the family moved to Walsenburg, where they have since resided. Mr. Farr went into the mercantile business in a small way, and in 1887 opened the first confectionary store in Walsenburg. During the succeeding years he engaged successfully in various lines of mercantile pursuit until 1902, when he was appointed water commissioner by Governor McDonald which position he ably filled until 1906. In 1907 he was appointed state game and fish commissioner by Governor Buchiel. During his two year term in this office Mr. Farr instituted the fish hatcheries near Meeker, and the largest one in the mountain states at Del Norte. He stocked many streams in Colorado with high grade game and food fish. His best known work along this line is the development of the Gunnison River section. He was also instrumental in introducing the Chinese pheasants into the northern section of the state, where these beautiful birds still abound in great numbers. In 1909 Mr. Farr was appointed undersheriff of Huerfano County, in which capacity he served as aid to the late Jefferson B. Farr until 1916. In 1921, he was appointed by Gov. Shoup water commissioner for Dist. No. 15, comprising Huerfano County and the southern part of Pueblo County, which position he held until the day of his demise, March 17, 1922. He is survived by his widow, one daughter, Jessie Farr Craddock, and two sons, James D. Farr, and Thos. S. Farr, all of Walsenburg. Another daughter, Carolyn, died in 1912. There are also six grandchildren and two great grand children. Mr. Farr was a charter member of Walsenburg Lodge No. 1086, B.P.O. Elks, in which organization he was deeply interested. The entire community marks with grief the passing of another pioneer, who has played no small part in the growth, development and upbuilding of his town, his county, and his state. He was a good husband and father, and a good citizen whom everyone loved, admired and respected. His loss will be keenly felt. The funeral of Mr. Farr was held Tuesday afternoon at the Presbyterian church, funeral discourses being given by Rev. J.Y. Bowman of the Methodist church and Rev. G.S. Derley of the Presbyterian church. Services at the grave were conducted by charter members of the Elks' lodge. The many floral tributes testified to the esteem in which he was universally held.

Farr, Edward
Edward Farr - Sheriff Edward Farr Huerfano County - On the morning of July 16, 1899, Huerfano County Sheriff Edward Farr joined a posse in the New Mexico Territory town of Cimarron. The posse was searching for the famous Sam Ketchum Gang that had been robbing banks, trains and postal units in New Mexico and Arizona for many years. Their latest escapade had been the robbery of a Colorado & Southern train on July 11th, just south of Folsom, in the New Mexico Territory. That evening, the posse caught up with a remnant of the gang, consisting of Sam Ketchum, G. W. Franks (alias Will Carver) and Elza Lay (alias William McGinnis). During the attack on the camp, Sheriff Farr was shot three times and died within minutes. Ketchum was later arrested and hung on April 26, 1901 in New Mexico for train robbery.

After graduating from Vassar College in 1943, she served as executive director of the Unity Council, a collaborative of civic organizations concerned with ending racial and ethnic discrimination in Denver. The council helped to enact the nation's first fair employment practices legislation and to right the record of the unjust, inhumane exclusion of persons of Japanese extraction from the West Coast during World War II.

Farrar, Katherine
Katherine (Tinny) Thatcher Farrar - Pueblo Chieftain - March 21, 2006 - Katherine (Tinny) Thatcher Farrar died at her home in Goodland, Fla., on March 16, 2006, at 88 years old. Tinny was the daughter of the late Mahlon D. and Katherine L. Thatcher of Pueblo, Colo., and the wife of the late Frederick M. Farrar of Colorado Springs, Colo. She grew up in Pueblo, lived in Denver after she was married, then moved to a ranch in the Black Forest. To escape the cold of Colorado, Tinny spent more and more of the winter in southwest Florida. She is survived by her four children, Kit Spahn and Janet Timmerman of Colorado Springs, Logan Farrar of Bellingham, Wash., and Elizabeth Farrar of Santa Rosa, Calif.; and four grandchildren, Katherine Langner of Scottsdale, Ariz., Tiffany Spahn of Portland, Ore., and Ian and Mattie Farrar of Bellingham, Wash. Tinny, the perennial tomboy, was a great lover of the outdoors which suited her to life on a ranch. Her love of nature and animals was translated into a large menagerie of pets, the ability to identify the majority of wildflowers, plants and wild birds in the regions where she lived and traveled and in her efforts to supply the wildlife surrounding her home with food and shelter. She was a supporter of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and many other animal related charities. The winters spent in Florida led her to develop a great interest in the welfare of marine mammals and after a trip to swim with the dolphins, an ongoing involvement with the Dolphin Research Center in Grassy Key, Fla. Tinny loved to travel whether it was on two legs, four legs, wheels, in the air, on the water or through the pages of a book. She traveled extensively ion the Southwest, Florida and the Bahamas, cruised the inside passage of Alaska, explored the Galapagos, traveled by barge in France and on the Mississippi, and white water rafted in her 70ีs, living an active life until respiratory disease limited her activity. Even when she was no longer able to exercise, her fingers and mind remained active as she spent countless hours creating needlepoint pieces while listening to books on tape. Tinny and her husband Fred traveled the western US, bouncing over many rough and precarious mountain and desert roads, to acquire the initial collection of artifacts that resulted in their founding of the Western Museum of Mining and industry. Tinny was very generous to her fellow men, helping those in need quietly without calling attention to her actions. Those who were privileged to call her a friend are left richer for having been a part of her life. Plans for a memorial service will not be made until her family returns from Florida. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to the Western Museum of Mining and Industry, 1025 Northgate Road, Colorado Springs, Colo., 80921, your local humane society or the charity of your choice.

Farrel, James
James Farrel - Boulder County Courier - November 1, 1878 - Two railroad laborers named Pat Kelcher and James Farrel, who had got into a drunken row at Pueblo, cutting and beating each other badly, were arrested and put into a cell together. During the night flames were seen bursting from the roof of the jail, but before they could be subdued both prisoners were burned to a crisp. The fire is attributed to a lighted candle that was left in the cell at the request of the prisoners. Boulder County News - November 1, 1878 - Burned To Death in the Pueblo Jail - Pueblo, October 20. Two railroad laborers named Pat Kelcher and James Farrel, who had been spreeing for several days, got into a row in South Pueblo last night, when Farrel cut an ugly gash in the throat of Kelcher. The latter then beat up Farrel badly, when both were arrested by Officer Drummond and confined in the calaboose. Dr. Shelburn was called in and dressed their wounds, and at their own request a bucket of water and a lighted candle were left in the calaboose. This was between 12 and 1 o'clock Monday night, and about 3 o'clock in the morning the watchman at the railroad depot discovered flames breaking through the roof of the building. He, with another man, rushed to the place and broke down the door, but the inmates were already dead and were burned to a crisp before the fire could be put out. Farrel was from St. Louis and Kelcher from Boston, where, it is believed, he has a family. He claimed to have a brother somewhere in Colorado.

Farrell, James
James Farrell – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – October 31, 1878 – Horrible Holocaust – Two Men Burned to Death in the South Pueblo Calaboose.  The most horrible accident that has ever occurred in this vicinity happened on Monday night.  Pat Keleher and James Farrel, two drunken men, became involved in a fight at the Colorado House, in which the one – Pat Keleher, had a gash cut in his throat, and the other, James Farrell, had his face badly bruised.  They were confined in the town calaboose by Officer Desmond, and their wounds dressed by Dr. Shelburne.  The two men were reasonably sober when left by the doctor, and Keleher asked for a light to bathe his wounds by.  A candle and bucket of water were left him and the two men had become reconciled and agreed to have no further trouble.  About three o'clock in the morning of the 29th the Calaboose was found to be on fire, and when broke open the bodies of the two men were almost entirely consumed.  The coroner Dr. Thombs was notified and summoned a jury, consisting of John Hamilton, H. C. Banks, W. W. Strait, G. D. Root, Fred Dickson and Jonathan Going.  The first witness sworn was P. J. Desmond, who stated that one of the parties burned was Patrick Keleher, who claimed to be from Boston and who claimed to have a brother, who was a carpenter, working somewhere in Colorado.  Upon the 28th Keleher was arrested under a warrant issued by Esquire Wilson, upon a charge of assault with intent to kill on complaint of L. Lehman.  It being too late for a trial the deputy sheriff Desmond took the man, who seemed verging on delirium tremens, to the Colorado House for the night.  About ten o'clock however, the man Keleher had a difficulty with James Farrell, in which he received an ugly gash in the neck, and he in turn beat Farrell in the face and head.  Desmond then with assistance took the two men to the calaboose, and summoned Dr. Shelburne.  In order to allow Keleher to bathe his neck he left a piece of candle in the cell.  The bedding being insufficient for two cells the two men were put together.  Desmond further stated that he was up at the Grand Central until one o'clock, when he went to bed, and in about an hour and a half heard an alarm of fire and when he reached the calaboose it was burned down and the two men dead inside.  Henry Kammerer sworn: - Stated that on the night of the 28th Desmond came and asked him to go for Dr. Shelburne.  Went to calaboose.  Saw the two men.  Didn't know either one of them.  The man whose neck was cut was not very much under the influence of liquor, but seemed somewhat strange as if crazy from previous drinking.  The two men seemed entirely reconciled.  Didn't seem angry with each other.  The older man said he was from St. Louis.  Didn't know his name, but could find out.  (Found afterwards to be James Farrell.)  Christopher Wilson examined under oath: - Stated that upon complaint of Louis Lehman, on the 29th, he issued a warrant for the arrest of Patrick Keleher upon a charge of assault with a pistol with intent to kill.  Keleher could give no bail and was turned over to constable Desmond.  Keleher seemed somewhat crazed and drunk.  Mr. Jonathan Going, juryman, stated that he thought the man Keleher was crazy from previous drinking and that he claimed to be from Boston.  Dr. E. Shelburne was then sworn and stated that upon the night of the 28th, about twelve o'clock, he was summoned to the calaboose to attend two wounded men.  Found one with a gash in his neck which was not serious, and the other badly beaten but not seriously hurt.  The one with the neck cut was standing up smoking a pipe, the other lying in bed.  Sewed up the wound in the neck of the larger man.  The other man remarked to the larger one "you used your boots on me d----d rough."  Both men talked sensibly enough, but smelled whiskey on the larger man.  The candle had no stick but was held in the hand.  Both men seemed a little afraid of further trouble.  The bodies when found did not occupy the same relative position as when he left the calaboose.  Keleher looked nervous and excited.  E. Herbert, proprietor of the Colorado House, sworn and examined.  Stated that Keleher was at his house on the 27th and was extremely quarrelsome and disagreeable, fussing with nearly everybody he came in contact with.  During the day of the 28th he took a little girl from the house up town, and made her very drunk.  When about to close up, the other man (Farrel) came in and had two glasses of beer.  He threw beer into Kelly's (not Keleher's) face.  He was then put out of the house, and Keleher went out after him.  In a few moments Keleher called for a light, and stated that he was cut.  The light was brought when Keleher was found to have Farrel down on the sidewalk or porch, beating and kicking him.  Farrel said Keleher was trying to rob him, and Keleher didn't seem to be crazed from drinking.  Farrel was a man of about thirty-seven or forty.  Fred Mysing sworn.  His testimony was the same as that of Desmond and Kammerer, except that he stated that upon the way to the calaboose the old man (Farrel) exclaimed repeatedly, "Oh God, oh God, I wish I was dead!  Oh God, let me die!"  Went to the calaboose with Desmond.  Heard Keleher say that he had acted wrong, and would stay quietly in the cell.  John Maher, examined under oath, stated that about three o'clock of the morning of the 29th, he found the calaboose on fire, and with the assistance of Jos. Coffman, broke open the door, but found the walls all burned.  Was watchman for the Denver & Rio Grande railroad.  Upon conclusion of the testimony the jury returned a verdict of death from a fire ignited through the negligence of the deceased.  The jury further condemned in strong terms the character of the building which was built for the confinement of drunken men principally, and was of the most dangerous material possible, as being lined with highly inflammable wood, and even the strictest search of the officer might leave a match undiscovered.  Once before, three men came near meeting with a similar fate, and but for the timely assistance of a passer death would certainly have followed.  The calaboose was so far from the inhabited part of the town that no alarm could be heard.  We feel satisfied that the new town board will build such a building as the necessities of the town demand, and that they will do it at once.  It may be as well for the Denver and St. Louis papers to notice the death of these unfortunate men, as their friends may be informed.  A Chieftain reporter visited the scene of the awful tragedy yesterday afternoon, and the bodies were still smouldering.  Farrel's head, and the legs and arms of both were entirely burned up, nothing but the shapeless trunks remaining.  The head of Keleher was burned to charcoal, but still retained its shape.  It was one of the most horrible and sickening sights he ever beheld.  They were both placed in one coffin and buried by order of Dr. P. R. Thombs last evening, at the county's expense.  It is another fearful warning to those who drink to excess, but, of course, will soon be forgotten.  Somebody is responsible for the death of these men, and it should be regarded as a crime to construct a prison of combustible material.  Men not necessarily vicious or bad frequently become intoxicated and have to put in the lock up, and every precaution should be taken to protect life.  But we presume men and corporations will keep on constructing prisons in the cheapest manner possible till some one who has influential friends gets burned alive, when some corporation may find itself with a heavy bill of damages to pay.

Twenty coffins have been ordered by the company from a local undertaking establishment. Two of the dead are Frank Hobat, miner, and R. J. Lumbey, fire boss. The names of the other men killed have not been learned, as the shift boss, who had charge of the men who went into the mine last night, is missing.

District Superintendent Robert O'Neil is personally directing the work of rescue. Volunteers from adjacent mines are assisting. Rescuers have been divided into two hour shifts and work will be kept up continuously until the entire mine is explored. During the entire day excitement ran high and relatives of the entombed miners stood waiting at the entrance to the mine for a sight of any of the victims that might be brought to the surface. The damage to the mine cannot be learned tonight. An attempt is being made to force air into the mine in the hope that some of the entombed men may be alive, and thus prevent their suffocating. Late advices are that the mine is badly wrecked. The rescue party has penetrated three hundred feet and recovered four bodies, the names not being given.

Fearn received a death sentence for kidnapping, raping, torturing, and shooting a sixteen-year-old high school student, Alice Porter, the daughter of a former Pueblo detective. Thirty-six hours before the murder, Fearn's wife gave birth to their second child. Fearn abducted the victim at gunpoint off a Pueblo street and took her to an abandoned ranch. He forced her to disrobe, bound her, and burned her two dozen times with a wire he had heated in the fireplace. He then raped her, beat her over the head with a hammer, and shot her to make sure she was dead. Her body was later found in a cistern. During the crimes, a heavy rainstorm passed over the area that caused Fearn's car to sink in mud. As a result, Fearn had to walk several miles for assistance, which led to his arrest. Fearn, a twenty-six-year-old railroad brakeman, immediately confessed. He had no prior arrests, but, in his confession, told authorities that since childhood he had felt an uncontrollable urge to commit this type of crime. Fearn believed that he deserved to die. He did not appeal his conviction and was executed six months after the crimes. His last request, for a bottle of beer, was honored. The victim's father and two of her uncles witnessed the execution.

Federico, Lorenzo
Lorenzo Federico - Ukiah Daily Journal - December 3, 2004 - Ukiah, CA - Lorenzo Federico, 94, of Richmond, a musician, philanthropist and the owner of numerous New York barbershops, died yesterday in his second home in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Born to Italian immigrant parents in Segundo, Colo., Mr. Federico was brought to Auletta, a small province of Salerno, Italy, at the age of 4 after his miner father's struggles with harsh work conditions in America. The family returned to their homeland to produce and export wine. In Italy, Mr. Federico had to grow up quickly, becoming the man of the house at an early age when his father was recruited into the Italian army during World War I. He was a musical prodigy and played the soprano saxophone and the clarinet, his family said. He performed in many operas and classical works, and toured Italy with a philharmonic orchestra during the mid-1920s. Mr. Federico returned to America in 1926 -- settling in Astoria, Queens, with his sister and her husband -- and apprenticed as a barber, because many people told him that a life in music was not the most promising of careers. He also lived in Lower Manhattan before relocating to Bay Ridge. He purchased a home in Richmond in the 1970s and divided his time among Staten Island, Brooklyn, St. Petersburg, Fla., and Italy. Mr. Federico opened 14 shops in the theater district of Manhattan. His first shop, "The Rex," which opened in the late 1920s, was named after the ship that brought him to the United States. He then opened a shop at the Statue of Liberty -- the first to appear there -- and another that became the first barbershop in the city subway system at the 49th Street station in Manhattan. Throughout the years, Mr. Federico's shops were frequented by celebrities such as Arturo Toscanini, Martin and Charlie Sheen, Molly Picon, Jack Palance, Burt Lancaster, Tony Mottola and Tony Curtis. He was a philanthropist, and his generosity was acknowledged by the Sons of Italy, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, World-Wide Adopt-A-Child, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the American Cancer Society, St. Patrick's R.C. Church, Richmond, and St. Mary's Our Lady of Grace R.C. Church in St. Petersburg, Fla. Through financial sponsorship, Mr. Federico helped more than 20 immigrants in their quest for U.S. citizenship. He was an avid traveler and took more than 20 trips to Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America, and saw the United States in its entirety. Mr. Federico's passion had always been music -- his favorites being opera, classical and Latin -- but he was also an avid golfer and enjoyed horseracing, card playing, bowling and sporting events, as well as dabbling in the stock market. "Music and his love of life and people have enhanced the quality of his life. He always said you can go to music like medicine to tide you through the adversities and help your spirits soar," his daughter, Rosemary Kaufmann, told the Advance last year in a report on his 94th birthday celebration. "My husband, Ernest, was the light of his life," said Mrs. Kaufmann. Mr. Federico was a member of the Sons of Italy. His first wife of 19 years, the former Anna M. Sirgany, died in 1953. His second wife of 38 years, Maria E. Fusco, died in 1995. In addition to his daughter, Rosemary, Mr. Federico is survived by his brother, Anthony; two granddaughters, and a great-grandson. The funeral will be Thursday from the Hanley Funeral Home, New Dorp, with a mass at 10 a.m. in St. Patrick's R.C. Church, Richmond. Burial will follow in First Calvary Cemetery, Queens.

The body was reportedly that of Roy Fennell, 60, who was reported missing June 30th after he failed to return from a night at the dog track the week before. "The cause of Fennell's death likely will remain a mystery," said Dr. Harper Kerr, deputy coroner. Kerr said no autopsy would be performed because of the condition of the body. Officers from the Pueblo County Sheriff's office are investigating the death and have not ruled out the possibility of foul play. Kerr said he received information that Fennell has a history of heart trouble and took a number of medications.

Ferguson, Wilbur N.
Wilbur N. Ferguson -Telluride Daily Journal - June 2, 1922 - Two Murdered When Jealous Suitor Shoots - Mine Watchman Kills His Rival in Home of the Girl - Uses a Shot Gun - Girl Flees but Her Head Is Blown Off by Pursuer - Trinidad, Colo., June 2 - Ella Centers, aged 25, and Wilbur Ferguson were foully murdered here last night by Joseph McGonigal, a jealous suitor. Miss Centers, the daughter of the boarding house keeper at the Royal mine, was in her home last night with Ferguson, who was writing a letter. McGonigal, a watchman at the Jewel mine, entered the house and shot Ferguson, who died immediately. The Centers girl fled, but was pursued by McGonigal who blew her head off with a shot gun. It is believed that the shooting took place over the hand of Miss Centers. Ferguson, of Saco, Maine, and a student in the School of Mines, was a temporary watchman at the Royal mine and boarded at the Centers' home. Miss Centers accepted the attentions of Ferguson and this made McGonigal furiously jealous and the double killing resulted. Immediately after the shooting McGonigal was arrested. It was found that he had a bullet wound in his foot, but this wound is believed to have been self-inflicted. Golden Colorado Transcript - June 8, 1922 - Popular Mines Student Murdered at Coal Camp - Wilbur Ferguson, prominent athlete and one of the most popular students of the School of Mines, was shot and instantly killed at Aguilar last Thursday by Joe McGonigal, a watchman. The shooting occurred in the dining room of the mine boarding house where Ferguson was sitting at a table writing. J. C. Williams, master of the Golden Masonic lodge, of which order Ferguson was a member, made a trip to Aguilar last Saturday to get the correct information concerning the murder, and found that the shooting of young Ferguson was a cold blooded affair and without provocation. On Thursday morning Ferguson was in the dining room writing a letter to his mother. McGonigal suddenly entered the room, carrying a sawed-off shotgun. He ordered Ferguson to get out of the house. Ferguson looked up from his writing, but made no move to arise from his chair, and with that McGonigal drew down on him with the gun and fired. The charge of buckshot entered Ferguson's chest. When McGonigal first entered the dining room, Ella Centers, daughter of the boarding house keeper, and with whom McGonigal was infatuated, was at work in a pantry adjoining the dining room. Another girl was with her. Just before the shot was fired the Centers girl rushed into the room, apparently with the idea of preventing the shooting. When Ferguson fell the girl rushed out of the house and into a deep arroyo, McGonigal running after her. McGonigal ran along the edge of the gulch and finally got just above the girl. She fell on her knees and pleaded with him to spare her life, but, taking slow and deliberate aim at her, he fired, killing the girl instantly. Several men working on a bridge nearby were witnesses to this killing. After shooting the girl, McGonigal fled to his own room in the boarding house and fired several shots from a revolver into his hat brim. He then sent a bullet into his foot and went into the room where Ferguson was lying. He placed the revolver about (?) Ferguson and then threw himself on the floor, pretending to be unconscious. State rangers entered the house and found the killer in that position. He was yanked to his feet, and the only thing he would say when questioned as to his motive in killing Ferguson and the girl was "Dead men tell no tales." Ferguson's right hand still grasped the fountain pen with which he had been writing, showing that there had been no fight. McGonigal had been known in the coal camp for some time as an all around bad man. The coroner's jury brought in a verdict Saturday to the effect that the killing was premeditated and felonious. Young Ferguson left Golden soon after school closed to take a job as watchman at the Royal mine at Aguilar, planning in this way to earn money to aid him in completing his college course. The Royal mine is owned by the National Fuel Company and officers of that company told Mr. Williams Sunday that Ferguson had so impressed them that a much better position was being prepared for him. Ferguson was one of the most popular men in the School of Mines, and was a favorite with students, faculty members and townspeople in general and his untimely death has brought great sorrow to this community. During the war Ferguson enlisted in Maine and served overseas in a machine gun company. After returning from France he came to Golden and entered the School of Mines as a freshman. He became a general favorite at once, and was elected president of the freshman class. He took a prominent part in athletics and all student activities and last fall was one of the mainstays of the Mines football team. He had been elected president of next year's junior class. He was a member of the Masonic order and of the local chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Ferguson, live in Saco, Maine, and he also leaves one brother. The body was taken to Denver and services were held at the Olinger mortuary yesterday morning, being attended by many lodge and fraternity brothers of the deceased, as well as many other friends. The remains have been shipped to the home in Maine for interment.

Ferry, Luke
Luke Ferry - Huerfano World - October 31, 2002 – 1913 La Veta Massacre - Excerpted from article published October 31, 2002. Four men met sudden death on Nov. 8, 1913 outside of La Veta. The incident occurred near the beginning of the 1913-1914 coal strike which lasted over one year. One day a scab in Oakview named William Gamblin needed to see a dentist. The nearest one being in La Veta, Gamblin walked into town and received care. He then phoned to the mine and requested a ride back. Capt. H.F. Bryan, Driver Luke Ferry, W.H. Whitten and R.G. Adams, drove into town and picked up Gamblin. As they began their trip back to the mine, just as they began to drive up the incline just west of town, a fusillade of gunfire rained down upon them. An unknown number of men were secreted behind Lougheed dam on the top of the hill, and they continued firing until the four mine guards were still. All four guards were killed, but Gamblin somehow survived the attack without injury.

Fietz, Charles
Charles Fietz – Fort Collins Courier – October 27, 1920 – Attempted Bank Robbery Tuesday at Elbert Ends With 2 Men Dead – Colorado Springs Police Kill Two and Wound a Third in Battle Following Attempt – By Associated Press – Colorado Springs, Oct. 26. – Two men are dead and a third in the hospital with wounds as a result of a battle today with the Colorado Springs police who were sent to the Black forest as a part of a posse searching for the auto bandits who attempted early today to rob the First National bank at Elbert. The dead are: Charles Fietz, Pueblo, and George H. Brown, Pueblo; the injured, Frank Green, Colorado Springs. The three men were met on a road by Jess Schlissler and Robert Race of the Colorado Springs police force. The auto was hailed by the officers and the occupants of the car opened fire. The officers replied. Neither of the police were wounded. The police believe the men were the band who were the armed guard at Elbert this morning when the attempt to enter the bank was made. They believe some of Greens wounds were received in this morning's encounter. By Associated Press – Colorado Springs, Oct. 26. – Posses searching for three bank robbers frustrated in an attempt to blow the safe of the bank of Elbert, 35 miles northeast of here, at 1 o'clock this morning, today found a bloody shirt and overcoat in a field southeast of Monument about ten miles from the attempted robbery, which was taken by the officers to indicate that at least one of the outlaws had been wounded. The signs stirred the officers to renewed efforts, as it was felt that they were hot on the trail of the men. It is supposed that the men are on foot as their car was disabled by a bullet in a running battle that followed the discovery by officers on guard at the bank. A similar attempt to rob the bank was made last week and another attempt to rob the vault had been anticipated by the sheriff who kept the bank under guard. Elizabeth, Colo., Oct. 26. – An attempt to rob the Elbert county bank at Elbert, near here, shortly after one o'clock this morning was prevented by armed guards who drove off a party of automobile bandits after a battle. Officials believe some of the bandits were wounded. The bandits abandoned their car north of Elbert, where it was found. Reports from Colorado Springs state a posse was being organized there. Elizabeth is thirty-five miles from Colorado Springs.

Fikany, M.D., age 84, a longtime Fort Sumner physician passed away Sunday, October 27, 2002 at Plains Regional Medical Center in Clovis. Edward was born November 12, 1917, in Trinidad, Colorado, to Franklin and Rozen Fikany. Edward attended school in Denver and Clayton, NM, before graduating from high school in 1935 in Evanston, Ill. Edward completed three years of pre-medical courses at the University of Texas before joining the Navy and earning his medical degree at Northwestern University in Chicago in 1944. He completed his internship at the U. S. Naval Hospital, Bremerton, Washington, before serving as the junior medical officer on a cruiser in the Pacific in 1945. He saw Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, after the Atomic bombs were dropped there, and he cared for U. S. soldiers returning to the States. He completed his military service in a naval reserve unit. Edward worked with a surgeon in Dubuque, Iowa, and did a fellowship in Pathology at Cook County Hospital in Chicago before returning to New Mexico. In 1948 he discovered a challenge in Fort Sumner: a small privately owned hospital was available for lease and he wanted to operate it. In Fort Sumner, Edward also met his future wife, Peg Smith. They were married January 9, 1951, in Aspermont, Texas. Together they cared for Doc's mentor, his aunt Dr. Ethel, his mother, Rozen, Peg's aunt Bebe Smith, and Peg's mother, Corinne Smith. Eventually De Baca General Hospital was built and Edward built an office across the street from it. He practiced medicine there for more than 40 years, serving as physician, friend, advisor, and confidant to thousands of patients in eastern New Mexico. Edward was preceded in death by his wife, Peg Smith Fikany in 1975; his parents; and his sister, Adele Azar. Edward is survived by his wife, Frances Brown Hall whom he married in August, 2000. Also surviving are a son, David, and his wife, Cathy of Fort Sumner; daughter, Lea Ann and her husband, Alan Curry of Chandler, Arizona; and seven grandchildren, Zane, Lance, and Ryan Fikany, and Tara, Erin, Blake, and Anna Curry.

Edward served his community in many capacities, including School Board President, Rotarian, and Chamber of Commerce president. He is a past president of the New Mexico Medical Association, and he has been a delegate to the state Republican convention. He was instrumental in the creation of the De Baca Industrial Development Board and its Medical Board. In 1999 the hospital was dedicated to him and renamed the Edward D. Fikany Medical Complex. Although Edward received many honors including the Rotary's highest, the Paul Harris Fellowship Award, the NM Family Doctor of the Year in 1989, and the Saint George Award from the American Cancer Society, he said, "The most rewarding part of being a family doctor is sharing in the problems and successes of families." In his many years of practice in Fort Sumner, he delivered hundreds of babies and performed many operations. He was a dedicated professional who worked long hours and loved doing it. He was a very humble man who will be greatly missed. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, October 30, 2002 from the First United Methodist Church in Fort Sumner with Rev. Monty Leavell officiating. Burial will follow in the family plot, Fort Sumner Cemetery.

Fisk, Mr.
Mr. Fisk – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – December 23, 1875 - The way of transgressors is hard, not only to themselves, but to the friends who are attached to them. At the time of the homicide of Fisk, Edward S. Stokes had an aged father and two brothers younger than himself, who devoted themselves to saving him with the most untiring zeal. One brother died with consumption, said to have been caused or hastened by the intense anxiety which he suffered on Ned's account; and now it is stated that his father, who died suddenly on Saturday, was brought to the grave by the grief which he experienced at the failure of his efforts to get his son pardoned. Stokes will emerge from prison at the expiration of his sentence to find his home greatly changed; a brother who loved him tenderly and his father gone and his wife divorced!

Floyd, Henry
Henry Floyd - Fort Collins Weekly Courier - May 1, 1914 - Eight Militiamen Were Killed Near Walsenburg While Making Charge - By United Press - Denver, April 29 - Gov. Ammons at 1:15 this afternoon received advices that from five to eight men were killed at Walsenburg this morning. He stated that his information was to the effect that the militia under Col. Verdeckberg had made an assault on the position held by the armed strikers on a ridge west of Walsenburg and that five soldiers were instantly killed. Another report is that the commanding officer sent a detachment of ten men to take a section of the entrenched position and that only two came back, having left their comrades dead on the field. The mine officials here say that they were advised that eight soldiers had been killed. The wires are down and communication with the coal fields is only intermittent. By United Press - Trinidad, April 29 - Reports were received here that fighting had ceased at Walsenburg upon the arrival of 150 militiamen to reinforce the troops there. The announcement was made that the strikers would be disarmed, and to this the officials of the miners replied, "The men will surrender their arms and ammunition to the federal soldiers, but not to the mine guards or state militia." The strikers control every mine in the Walsenburg district except the Walsen mine, which is the richest one in the district and which is heavily guarded. They deny that the fatalities were heavy yesterday and say that only two were killed, one of them being Henry Floyd. He left the Walsen mine on a motorcycle and had a woman with him. The militia in operating their machine guns caught Floyd and killed him. The woman was unhurt. At the Forbes mine, five miles from here, firing has been resumed. The operators claim the strikers made an attack on the mine and set fire to the tipple and other buildings. Fort Collins Weekly Courier - May 1, 1914 - Long List of Killed and Wounded at Forbes Mine - Seventeen Known Dead - By United Press - Denver, April 30 - After almost 56 hours of continuous firing a truce has been declared between mine guards, militia and strikers at the Forbes mine near Walsenburg. With the declaration of a truce on Wednesday night at 9 o'clock it was learned that 17 are dead. Nine of these dead are at Forbes and six are seriously wounded. At Walsenburg five are dead in the city, three in the hills and three others severely wounded. The end of the Forbes battle left the mine property a smoking ruin. The men are now awaiting the arrival of the United States cavalry. The second squadron of the 5th cavalry will arrive at noon from Fort Leavenworth and two troops will be sent to Walsenburg by Capt. C. C. Smith, who is in command. The strike leaders promise to lay down their arms and surrender them upon the arrival of the federal troops. It is not known if the strikers will keep the promise. Conditions are such that both sides are ready to resume fighting at Trinidad and Walsenburg. Wednesday's carnage was revenge for the tragedy at the tent colony at Forbes last winter, when the militia knocked down the tents and drove the strikers and their families out. Tuesday night 200 armed strikers left the Gen. Brown camp and marched to the Forbes mine. Superintendent Nichols was on guard with 40 men and several machine guns. Wednesday morning the strikers opened fire. The machine guns kept the men back until the guns became leaded and for three hours the guards fought without their machine guns. They were compelled to flee, and then the strikers took the property and set fire to the buildings. The guards left six dead on the field and three others were located during the night. In the fighting at Walsenburg, Major P. C. Lester of the hospital corps was killed, as well as two strikers and Henry Floyd and George Bock. O. L. Wilmouth of Boulder, Glenn Martin of Longmont and Lieut. Scott were wounded. Col. Verdeckberg with 200 militiamen, with Capt. Swope in charge of the right wing and Capt. Baird on the left, tried to take the strikers' position, which extended over three miles of the hogback ridge. They ran into a terrific fire and were repulsed. It is stated that Donald MacGregor, a newspaper man, had charge of the strikers. Gov. Ammons announced definitely this morning that troops would not be taken out of territory not occupied by the federal troops.

Foley, Michael
Michael Foley – 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.

Ford, James
James Ford – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 6, 1879 – Whisky Again – James Ford Drowned in the Arkansas – At an early hour on Monday morning the body of a man was found lying in the Arkansas a short distance below the Union avenue bridge. The water is very shallow at that point and not of sufficient depth to carry the body away. After being removed from the water the corpse was recognized as that of James Ford, a stone cutter, a native of Ireland, and a resident of Pueblo for the last nine or ten years. He was about forty-seven years of age, unmarried and has been in the employ of Messrs. Corkish & Kearney for several years past. He was at work last on Mr. Hugh Smith's new building at the corner of Sixth and High streets. Dr. Thombs, coroner, held an inquest upon the body at which it was shown that the deceased was very drunk on Sunday night, about nine o'clock, and stopped at the residence of Mr. John Pritchard telling him that he (Ford) had lost himself, that he had several ponies in Mr. Crites' corral and wanted to find his way there. Mr. Pritchard accompanied him until they arrived in front of a saloon near the corral, when Ford remarked that he knew where he was and wanted Mr. Pritchard to go in and drink with him. This Mr. Pritchard refused to do, and left the deceased, who was never again seen alive. He is supposed to have blundered into the water and fallen down and drowned, being too much under the influence of liquor to get up. No marks of violence were apparent upon the body except a few scratches on one of his hands, which were accounted for by his having fallen into a chicken coop in the rear of one of the saloons when under the influence of liquor on Saturday afternoon. The following is the verdict of the coroner's jury: We, the undersigned jurors, having viewed the body and made all needful inquiries in respect to and upon the body of James Ford, found dead in the Arkansas river, near the Union avenue bridge, in the city of Pueblo, county of Pueblo and state of Colorado, we, the jurors, upon our oaths do say that the said James Ford came to his death by drowning, and from the evidence before us believe he fell into the river while in a state of intoxication on the night of November 2d, 1879.

Madisto Formali - Daily Nevada State Journal, Reno, NV - January 24, 1907 - Primero, Colorado - Colorado Fuel & Iron Co. Coal Mine Explosion, January 23, 1907 - Twenty lives go out in a mine explosion over in Colorado - Trinidad, Colo., Jan 23 - Twenty miners, according to the authentic information available his evening, lost their lives as a result of an explosion which occurred at three o'clock this morning in the Colorado Fuel & Iron Company's Coal mine near Primero, twenty miles west of this city. Twenty coffins have been ordered by the company from a local undertaking establishment. Two of the dead are Frank Hobat, miner, and R. J. Lumbey, fire boss. The names of the other men killed have not been learned, as the shift boss, who had charge of the men who went into the mine last night, is missing. All the men except Lumley were foreigners, most of them being Italians. The explosion stopped the air fan, which was not repaired until late today, and there is little chance that any of the men in the mine at the time of the explosion are still alive. District Superintendent Robert O'Neil is personally directing the work of rescue. Volunteers from adjacent mines are assisting. Rescuers have been divided into two hour shifts and work will be kept up continuously until the entire mine is explored. During the entire day excitement ran high and relatives of the entombed miners stood waiting at the entrance to the mine for a sight of any of the victims that might be brought to the surface. The damage to the mine cannot be learned tonight. An attempt is being made to force air into the mine in the hope that some of the entombed men may be alive, and thus prevent their suffocating. Late advices are that the mine is badly wrecked. The rescue party has penetrated three hundred feet and recovered four bodies, the names not being given. Reno Evening Gazette, Reno, NV- Jan 24, 1907 - Trinidad, Colo., January 24, 1907 - Heroically at work the rescuing party has so far succeeded in recovering but four bodies from the Primero Mine where the explosion occurred yesterday morning.

Forselius, Randall August
Randall August Forselius - Rocky Mountain News - February 15, 1994 - Randall August Forselius was full of what is known in Finland as sisu. He used the word (translation: tenacity) a lot, and exemplified it until the moment of his death Feb. 3 in Denver. On that afternoon, Mr. Forselius, 69, suffered an aortic aneurysm. In excruciating pain, alone in his Denver home, he got in his car and drove to the hospital. He told the doctors in the emergency room at Porter Memorial Hospital that he felt a pain in his chest that nearly dropped him to his knees. Within minutes, he lost consciousness and died. The son of a poor Finnish immigrant, Mr. Forselius was tenacious all his life. He was born Nov. 8, 1924, in Ely, Minn., where he grew up in the strict, conservative traditions of his father's people. Mr. Forselius set his sights on Denver after graduating from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn., with his wife, Ruth "Hans" Forselius. The couple packed their belongings and drove to Colorado. They spent one summer working at Bear Lake, saving every penny. With that cash, combined with Mr. Forselius' GI benefits, they set out for Denver to open a business. He owned nearly three dozen businesses in his career, but his first was in men's formal wear – a decision that came to him suddenly. "He and I were sitting in the Brown Palace Hotel," his wife recalled. "Everyone was dancing. There were all these people wearing white socks and saddle shoes" - long out of style in the big cities of the East Coast. "Randall turned to me and said, `We have a lot of work to do here.' " That's how the first Randall Clothing Store was born. In the 1970s he started Cherry Antique Store, I Got A Thing About Antiques. He ran Trifles, a necktie shop in downtown Denver, in the 1980s. He also was honorary consul for the Republic of Finland for many years, being named Knight, First Class, of the order of the Finnish White Rose by the president of Finland in 1976. A memorial service for Mr. Forselius was Feb. 7 at Augustana Lutheran Church in Denver. He is survived by his wife and three daughters, Valerie Miller of Denver, Wendy Forselius of Seattle and Randilyn Stroh of Walsenburg. Contributions: Randall A.

Fox, John H.
John H. Fox - Durango Democrat - April 9, 1905 - Cowardly Murder - John H. Fox Shot in the Back by Joseph Johnson, in Trinidad Post office - Lynching Narrowly Averted - Trinidad, Colo., April 8 - John H. Fox, formerly county treasurer, was killed in the post office here at 1 p.m. today by Joseph Johnson, a local politician. Johnson shot Fox in the back of the head while the latter was reading a letter. Joseph Johnson was a deputy sheriff and it had been proposed to send him to California with a requisition for Vida L. Shoblo, who had been arrested there on a charge of having embezzled $1,000 of the county's funds when a clerk in the treasurer's office. Fox had made objections to sending Johnson on this errand on the ground that he was an intimate friend of Shoblo's, and owing to the fact that both were Mexicans the deputy might be influenced to allow the alleged defaulter to escape. This opposition on the part of Fox had the effect of canceling the appointment by the county commissioners and another man was sent in place of Johnson. Johnson resented this action and this is supposed to have been his motivator killing Fox. Johnson placed his revolver to Fox's ear and fired, the bullet passing clear through the latter's head, passing through a glass door and grazing the head of a man riding in an elevator in the further part of the building. A young woman and a little girl were the only witnesses to the tragedy. Johnson immediately after the shooting of Fox surrendered to Sheriff Davis and was placed in jail under a strong guard, as a mob of 1,000 persons quickly formed with the avowed intention of lynching the murderer. The frenzied men were met by Sheriff Davis and a guard of deputies armed with rifles and revolvers, at the court house, who ordered the crowd to disperse, but they stubbornly held their ground. In the meantime Sheriff Davis engaged a special train for Pueblo and ordered his chief deputy to swear in 50 additional men to assist in removing Johnson from the jail to the depot. With a cordon of deputies thrown around the prisoner, forming a complete protection for him, a rush was made for the train before the mob at the end of the building had been made aware of the plans of Sheriff Davis. When the flight of the prisoner and deputies was observed, the angered men made a dash and were hot on heels of the officers before half the distance to the train had been covered. Johnson was rushed on board the train and the signal given to start, when the mob was scarcely twenty yards away. After the train had gone about 200 yards a coupling broke and the men who had been left behind, observed that the engine had become detached from the caboose, made a mad dash ahead, but for the second time were foiled. The train this time proceeded without mishap, and the mob reluctantly dispersed. Johnson will be lodged in the county jail at Pueblo for safe keeping. John H. Fox served three terms as county treasurer of Las Animas County and was a candidate before the last Democratic convention for state treasurer, and was a prominent Democrat in the county. Johnson acted as body guard for Senator Casimero Barela during the campaign last fall and while the legislature was in session in Denver. When on the train Johnson said: "I killed Fox because I was mad. He prevented me from going after Shoblo, and said I would aid him to escape. We had some words this morning, but I will not tell anything else at this time." Basalt Journal - April 22, 1905 - The people of Trinidad turned out almost en masse to attend the funeral of John H. Fox, who was killed by Joseph Johnson on the 8th inst. There was a large representation of the Masons, Elks, Woodmen and Red Men. Basalt Journal - September 16, 1905 - Senator Casimiro Barela has issued a statement in which he declares positively that he has not made nor will he make any effort to secure a pardon or a reprieve for Joe Johnson, the condemned murderer of John H. Fox at Trinidad. Golden Colorado Transcript. April 13, 1905 - Murder at Trinidad - J. H. Fox Shot by Jos. Johnson - Victim Was Former County Treasurer - Murderer is Deputy Sheriff - Cause Professional Jealousy - Denver, March 9 - A News special from Trinidad, Colorado, last night says: John H. Fox, former county treasurer and prominent Democratic politician, was killed by Deputy Sheriff Joe Johnson at 1:45 o'clock this afternoon. The murder was committed in the post office. Fox stood reading a paper and Johnson stepped up behind him, stuck the muzzle of the forty-five caliber revolver against his head and pulled the trigger. Fox dropped dead in his tracks. The motive for the crime was Johnson's belief that Fox had induced the county commissioners to send another deputy to California after Vidal Shoblo, alleged defaulting county treasurer of Las Animas County. Johnson also said that Fox had "joshed" him about the probability of Johnson letting Vidal escape on the way back here. Yuma Pioneer. April 14, 1905 - Fox Inquest - Trinidad Jury Fastens Crime of Murder on Johnson - Denver, April 11 - A Trinidad dispatch last night says: The coroner's inquiry into the death of John H. Fox Saturday afternoon was held this morning. All witnesses who knew anything about the events leading up to and connected with the tragedy testified and the jury promptly returned a verdict charging Joe Johnson with the crime and finding that the fatal shot was fired with felonious intent. Sheriff Davis issued a statement last evening to the effect that Johnson did not hold a deputy sheriff's commission. Sheriff Davis said: "I want to correct two false reports which, I understand, have been generally circulated. One is that Johnson had a gun given to him before we started to the train. That is utterly false and I want to say right here that he would have been handcuffed then if he had been able to make decent time running that way. We put irons on him as soon as we reached the car and they didn't come off. The other false report is that Johnson was a deputy of mine. He has never held a commission from me since I have been in office. I did think of sending him after Shoblo, but had I done so I would have given him his commission the night before he left. He would have had to surrender it at once on his return, as he is not a man I care to have among my deputies. The records of this office will show that he never was deputized since I have been in office. What feelings the people have toward me, I do not know. I had only one thing to do and that was my duty. I would have done it at all costs, whether we had been successful in getting Johnson away or not. I cherish no ill-feeling toward any one. The provocation the people of this city had was great. I had no business to think or to feel, only my duty to do, and what that was to bring me I did not know. I thank God we got Johnson away." Joe Johnson has a wife and four little children, the oldest a girl of eight years. They live in a pretty, little house on Vine Street. Yesterday morning Mrs. Johnson took her children and went to the ranch below the city, being unable to endure the curious stares of neighbors and citizens, to whom they had become objects of curiosity and pity. Eagle County Blade. June 1, 1905 - Doomed to Scaffold - End of Trinidad Murder Case - Verdict of Murder in the First Degree Against Joe Johnson, Slayer of John Fox - Denver, May 26 - A Trinidad dispatch last night says: Joe Johnson, the murderer of John Fox, is guilty of murder in the first degree and will pay the penalty on the scaffold. It took the jury in his case but thirty-eight minutes to agree upon a verdict. The trial will go down in the legal history of Colorado as the shortest on record, considering the number of witnesses examined, nearly forty. The trial began Tuesday, the jury being selected that day. Yesterday and to-day were devoted to the examination of witnesses, the arguments of attorneys and the rendering of the verdict. Johnson heard the reading of his death warrant stoically and the only comment he made was to Sheriff Davis, as he was being taken to jail. He said: "It's pretty hard." His wife, who fainted in the courtroom yesterday, completely collapsed when she heard the verdict. The courtroom was jammed when the jury returned its decision. Judge Northcutt at once adjourned court, after discharging the jury until Monday morning, at which time Johnson will be formally sentenced to death, the penalty fixed by law for murder in the first degree. Attorney Earl Cooley, representing Johnson, gave the customary notice of a motion for a new trial. District Attorney Watt McHendrie (?) made the opening statement for the prosecution. He was brief but eloquent. Mr. Cooley, in his argument, dwelt principally upon the hypothesis that he has advanced of Johnson's insanity. At 5:30 the jury left the room and thirty-eight minutes later returned with the verdict. It is stated that only one ballot was taken. Johnson, on April 8th, in the lobby of the post office of Trinidad, walked up behind John Fox, placed a six-shooter behind Fox's left ear, and sent a bullet through the victim's brain. Fox was one of the most prominent citizens in southern Colorado. His assassination in the post office created a big sensation and a lynching was avoided only by the cool-headed people of the community and the vigilance of the sheriff, who took Johnson to Pueblo. Fox was a prominent Mason, Elk and Woodman. He was postmaster under Cleveland in 1884; city treasurer; three times county treasurer of Las Animas county, and twice candidate for the nomination of state treasurer on the Democratic ticket. At the funeral of Mr. Fox, ex-Governor Adams of Pueblo delivered a eulogy at the grave. Breckenridge Bulletin. September 16, 1905 - Hanged in Penitentiary - Denver, Colo., Sept. 14 - For the cowardly murder of his benefactor, John H. Fox, at Trinidad, May 8th, Joseph Johnson was hanged in the penitentiary at Canon City yesterday. Fox, who was former county treasurer and a leading politician of Las Animas County, was reading a letter when Johnson crept behind him and blew out his brains. A desperate attempt was made to lynch Johnson and a repetition at the trial was averted by the sheriff's guarantee that the murderer would be legally hanged. Johnson was about fifty-eight years of age and had lived in Trinidad all of his life. He killed a man several years ago, but as there were some extenuating circumstances he escaped punishment, largely through the efforts of John H. Fox, whom he subsequently murdered without cause. Yuma Pioneer – April 21, 1905 – The people of Trinidad turned out almost en masse to attend the funeral of John H. Fox, who was killed by Joseph Johnson on the 8th inst.

Colorado Public Defender - September 13, 1905 - Joseph Johnson, Trinidad (Las Animas County). W-W. Hanging/Broken neck. Johnson was convicted of killing John H. Fox, "ex-county treasurer, and one of the most prominent Democratic politicians of the county and state." Johnson was a deputy sheriff and worked as a bodyguard for a state senator. When Fox's former clerk was arrested in California for misappropriating Las Animas county funds, Johnson wanted the job of going to California to retrieve the prisoner. Fox refused to grant Johnson the appointment, a quarrel ensued, and Johnson shot Fox with a revolver. Johnson was immediately apprehended and admitted his guilt.

To him and those like him, Colorado owes a debt of gratitude which finds expression in wide-spread sorrow. As one after another of these heroes of early days are called home, the world loses much.

Franks, William
William "Indian Bill" Franks - Dolores News - June 30, 1883 - Indian Bill Killed - Indian Bill, a well-known San Juan character, was shot and killed at Parrott City, on last Monday. The particulars we get from the Durango Herald: It again becomes our duty to record the particulars of a probably fatal shooting affray in La Plata County. Parrott City was the scene of the tragedy. It seems that for several days three men named Lewis, Reilly and Frank Smith, who came in from the Navajo reservation with horses for sale, have been camped at James Sheek's place in Parrott City. They had several dogs, one of which (it is alleged) is a cross between a dog and a bear, and the trouble grew out of a controversy over these dogs. William Franks, better known as "Indian Bill," an old resident of Parrott and La Plata, several times shot at these dogs. The boys asked Bill to quit shooting, as he was liable to kill some of them instead of a dog. A red-hot argument occurred in the saloon of the Mansion House, yesterday morning, between "Indian Bill," and William Lewis. The former was armed and Lewis unarmed. Lewis told Bill to lay aside his gun and proposed that they go out in the streets and settle the controversy with their fists. Bill agreed and unbuckled his belt and laid his revolver on a billiard table. Lewis started ahead. Bill followed; but as he passed the billiard table, again picked up his gun and struck Lewis twice over the head with the weapon, as the latter was passing through the door. Lewis, badly hurt by the blows he had received, ran across the street to Darrow's store, and Bill followed, firing two shots at Lewis, one of which came near hitting Mrs. Darrow. Lewis snatched a pistol from a bystander. Bill then ran into the store for safety. Lewis, as he has since explained, did not shoot into the store at Bill, for fear of killing some innocent person. He stepped around the corner of the house, with a view to drawing Bill out. Bill, thinking that Lewis had gone around the corner with the intention of coming in the back way, went out of the front door. But Lewis was waiting for him. It thus happened that the two met nearly face to face. Lewis instantly fired, sending a bullet through the bowels of Bill, which came out near the hip joint. Bill fell like a dead man and was carried into the store. Dr. Mans was quickly summoned from Fort Lewis. He pronounced Bill's wound mortal. Bill sometime after made his will. He lived, however, through the night, and was still breathing at eight o'clock, this morning, but his recovery is regarded as impossible. "Indian Bill" has for several years been engaged in prospecting in the La Plata mountains. He always carried a pistol and aspired to the reputation of being a bad man. He was a mixture of Cherokee, negro and hard citizen, and claims to have been educated in the same school with the James Brothers. He killed a policeman at Pueblo four years ago, but owing to some unfortunate blunder, then escaped the gallows. It is also understood that he has killed several other persons. Prior to the late shooting he carried five or six bullets in his carcass. Fort Lewis, June 28. - Dr. L. M. Mans, Post Surgeon, has just returned from Parrott City. He reports that Indian Bill died yesterday at half past six o'clock. Peritonitis set in and was the immediate cause of the death. Lewis is doing well and will recover.

Frodsham, Ed
Ed Frodsham – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 27, 1879 – The Vigilantes at Work – [Special to the Chieftain.] – Leadville, November 20. – At one o'clock this morning, forty-five masked and determined men proceeded quietly to the house of Sheriff Watson, and when he answered the summons, covered him with six shooters and forced him to accompany them to the county jail, in which there were three assistants who were provided for in the same manner as the sheriff, thus effecting an entrance without creating any disturbance or noise. The sheriff was told to open the cage in which was confined Chas. Stuart, who was wounded by Bockhouse last Saturday when attempting to rob him, the particulars of which have been already published. He was taken out and hanged to the rafters of an adjoining shed being erected for the jailors. Stuart had openly threatened Bockhouse's life as soon as released. Stuart was but twenty years old, and begged piteously that his life be spared, and when told that his doom had been sealed, asked to be allowed a few minutes to write to his mother at Connellsville, Pennsylvania, which was cruelly denied him, and was only granted time to say a short prayer and then launched into eternity. The next cell to be opened was that of Ed. Frodsham, a man whom the world should rejoice at his departure. He came here from Utah about a year ago, and for a short time figured conspicuously in the lot jumping business. His captors were inexorable and merciless, and launched their victim into eternity suspended to the beams of a new building in front of the jail, now being erected. Frodsham struggled furiously and his face bore marks of agony as he hung suspended to a rafter. When his request was denied to write a letter to his wife, he made a desperate effort to escape the fate which befell him. To the body of Frodsham was pinned a placard reading as follows: "Notice to all lot thieves, bunko steerers, foot pads, thieves and chronic bondsman for the same and sympathizers of the above class of criminals. This is our commencement, and this shall be your fate. We mean business. Let this be your last warning, particularly Cooney, Adams, Collins, Hogan, Ed. Burns, Ed Champ, P. A. Kelley and a great many others who are well known to this organization. We are seven hundred strong."

She then went on to the University of Missouri in Kansas City to receive her master's degree in public administration. At the young age of 56, she received her bachelor's degree in nursing from Beth El College of nursing and was valedictorian of her class. Jane had several interesting and gratifying career experiences. In Kansas City, she worked for the U.S. Corp of Engineers, and was a fund-raiser for a non-profit adolescent agency. In Pueblo, she provided public relations services for Pueblo Peak Health, served as director of the Pueblo Agency on Aging, worked as a nurse at La Junta General Hospital, and also as a nurse at Sangre de Cristo Hospice. Before becoming ill, she held a nursing position at the San Carlos Correction Facility. Jane pursued a variety of interests during her life. Her interest in penal reform issues led the governor of Kansas to appoint her to a blue ribbon committee which recommended reforms to the Kansas Penal System. She was subsequently elected to serve on the board of directors of the National Council on Crime and Delinquency. As a result of her interest in mental health, she served as president of the Kansas City Mental Health Association and as chairperson of the Wyandotte County (Kansas) Mental Health Center Board of Directors. Her interest and active participation in mental health issues led to her election to the board of directors of the National Council of Community Health Centers.

She also founded the Watering Hole, a women's discussion group in Pueblo, modeled after a similar group to which she belonged in Kansas City. In 2003, Jane was honored in the Wichita State University Plaza of Heroines for her kindness, courage and commitment to women's issues. To complement her many achievements, Jane also was very adventurous and undertook challenges that others just dreamed about. She rafted the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, went kayaking in the Pacific Ocean near the Washington coast, and began roller-blading and bicycling at the age of 47. She also enjoyed dancing and all of the performing arts. At the time of her death, she served as vice president of the Pueblo Symphony Board of Directors. Additionally, Jane enjoyed foreign travel, and visited many western and eastern European countries and Canada. She was an avid reader and a serious student of the American Civil War and English history. Of all her qualities, Jane will be best remembered for her kindness, optimism, courage, and the love she shared with all who knew her. Her talent, commitment and wisdom have been an inspiration to those who were fortunate to have known her. She valued life, treasured her many friendships and her greatest passion was her love for her family; but her greatest pride and joy were her grandchildren whom she adored. She is already missed by all who loved her. The family will receive friends at the funeral home from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Fennell. Among the members of the O. R. T. and other friends from out of town in attendance at the services were J. C. Brannan (?) of Pueblo, H. W. Martin of Malta, T. H. Holton of Gunnison, F. A. Devin, Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Compton of Denver, (and) J. J. Rose of Chicago. Mr. and Mrs. Compton and Mr. Rose accompanied Mrs. Fulton on her sad mission home last week after Mr. Fulton died at the Lakeside hospital shortly after noon Tuesday before she arrived from Leadville, from which she started Sunday night last on receiving word of the sudden attack of acute indigestion which seized Mr. Fulton while on his way east. Mr. Rose is chairman for the O. R. T. of the Rock Island and is acting as chairman also for several other western roads while their respective officers are at the Washington conference. Mr. Fulton was 58 years old, had lived in Leadville 24 years and had been employed on the Rio Grande railroad for 29 years. He was born in Madison, Wis., on October 25, 1860. Leaving his birthplace and starting out in life for himself, he was employed for some time on the Northwestern railroad and then came west to Colorado, first settling in Denver. Later he took up employment in Pueblo and then, 24 years ago in March, he came to Leadville. He and Mrs. Fulton were married on September 19, 1887. During the last nine years of his long and faithful service with the Rio Grande, Mr. Fulton was the general chairman of the Order of Railroad Telegraphers on this railroad, and it was as such that he started east this month to attend the conference of chairmen at Washington. His duties in this office, as well as in his railroad position proper, called for considerable traveling about the country, and he possessed friends in scores of towns and cities besides his "home town." Surviving him are his wife and two daughters, two brothers and two sisters. The latter are Sam Fulton of Pomona, Calif., Mrs. Margaret Starr of Azusa, Calif., Mrs. Anna Richmond of Omaha, George William Fulton and Catherine Fulton, who live at Pacific Junction, Iowa, all of them older than Mr. Fulton.
