Gaines, Richard
Richard Gaines – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – September 11, 1879 – Death of Mr. Richard Gaines – The news of the death of Mr. Richard Gaines, at his home in this city, says the Colorado Springs Gazette, will be received with profound sorrow by a large circle of personal friends. Mr. Gaines had been suffering during the summer from a bilious attack, but seemed of late to be recovering his usual degree of health, but he suffered a relapse, and at half past four Sunday afternoon expired, after an illness of about sixteen hours. Mr. Gaines was born in Georgetown, District of Columbia, on the 24th of September, 1810. When he was still an infant his parents removed to Cincinnati, Ohio, where he passed his boyhood and grew up to manhood. Being a young man of strong character, he thoroughly imbibed the liberal principals of William Lloyd Garrison and other abolitionists and of course took an active part in opposing the cruel and unjust fugitive slave law, and, in conjunction with many other Ohio abolitionists, assisted many a poor, hunted slave on to Canada and freedom. About 1854, Mr. Gaines removed with his family to Fairfield, Jefferson county, Iowa. In that young growing state he soon found a wide field for the exercise of his liberal principles and also for his keen intelligence and ability in organizing and managing affairs of public importance. He took a prominent place among the leading men of the state, and contributed not a little to the success of some of her home institutions. He was a member of the first board of trustees of the agricultural college, located at Ames, now a flourishing college of upwards of four hundred students, was the first superintendent of the college farm and during his superintendency planned and directed the erection of the brick farm house and the barns and out-buildings, and by his own personal efforts in opposition to the opinions of his fellow trustees secured through the influence of the United States senator from southern Iowa, the magnificent appropriation of lands which to-day brings to that institution the handsome revenue which makes it almost if not quite sustaining. Mr. Gaines, thinking he would find a better and wider field for the business pursuits of his family, came to Colorado, arriving in El Paso county in May, 1870. He settled on the Fountain, six miles below Colorado Springs, and turned his attention to cattle raising, and took but a small part in the politics of the state outside of his own county. He was known by all his acquaintances as a close thinker, a man of integrity, and a firm advocate of temperance. By these fine qualities of heart and mind, he secured the friendship of hosts of people throughout the state. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity and reached a high standing in that society, being a Royal Arch Mason in good standing. His death is mourned by an estimable wife and a large family of sons and daughters.

Gallagher, James
James Gallagher - Colorado Springs Gazette - June 24, 1999 - Man known to his friends as retired hobo dies at 85 by Susan Warmbrunn. James Gallagher's obituary form offered a one-word description of his life: hobo. His death June 12 at 85 ended a lifetime riding the rails, carrying the baggage of a personal tragedy he only hinted at to friends. "He was a retired hobo," said Carolyn Gudjonsson, who took Gallagher into her home during the last days of his life. "He loved to go in the car. He loved to travel any place. "I bet he was a pip when he was young." Gallagher was a man with hair as white as bone, with a passion for fresh strawberries, pretty women and old-time trains, friends say. Little is known of his past. He was born in 1913 in Altoona, Pa., and grew up on a farm near the 150-year-old railroad town. A large chunk of his life is unaccounted for until about 30 years ago, when he ended up in Colorado, diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic and mentally retarded. He spent about seven years in the state hospital in Pueblo and 22 years in a Springs nursing home. When Gallagher suffered congestive heart failure about a year and a half ago, guardianship was given to the Arc, formerly the Association for Retarded Citizens. The Arc then moved Gallagher into a house with two other mentally handicapped people. Staff member Gudjonsson worked there with Gallagher and decided to take him home with her when the lease wasn't renewed. "Jimmy had just been the light of my life for over a year and half," said Gudjonsson. He didn't talk much about his days riding trains. Sometimes, someone would ask him about a scar, Gudjonsson said, and Gallagher would answer: "Oh, that's when I got thrown off the train." He rarely spoke of a family lost long ago. He said he married a woman named Oma in Hot Springs, Calif., in 1933 and they had three children together. She died and the babies were taken to the orphanage. "I said: 'Is that when you started riding the trains?'" recalled Gudjonsson. "He said: 'Yes.' Then he cried. So I didn't ask anymore." At the time of Gallagher's family crisis, in the depths of the Depression, many men roamed the country on trains looking for work. Gallagher never lost his love of trains or the hometown he hadn't seen in so many years. Gallagher liked to sit in Gudjonsson's car, the motor silent - "so I can go to Pennsylvania in my mind," he told her.

Gallegos, Fabino
Fabino Gallegos - Rocky Mountain News – September 15, 1911, Page 4 – Fabino Gallegos at Pueblo is shot at the wedding of Martinez Sanchez and Miss Martina Martinez. Rocky Mountain News – September 15, 1911, Page 4 – Martinez Sanchez, Pueblo wedding to Martina Martinez at the home of the bride in Salt Creek. Murder committed by a reject suitor of the bride, broke up wedding festivities. The crime is thought to have resulted in the death of Fabino Gallegos and Amarance Chavez. At the hospital Chavez made effort to tell who did the shooting but was too weak. He said one single word, "Cirranio", this is thought to be the first name of the man who fired the shots. Two theories result, one being that the shooting of Gallegos happened because he was being shown more favor during the dance than the murderer, and the shooter was an unsuccessful suitor for the hand of the bride and created a disturbance. Chavez, a friend of the man who was killed interposed and was shot.

Gallegos, Richard
Richard Gallegos - Denver Rocky Mountain News - November 30, 2004 - Richard Gallegos, artist and war veteran - Richard Gallegos never said a word about his World War II experiences in Europe. Instead, he used a palette knife to scrape and smear oil paints into images on canvas. One painting depicted village women washing clothing in a river; another was a dark portrait of a medic. A third was a scene of parishioners removing chairs from a church in the distance as it was being bombed. After his death Oct. 19 at the age of 81, his family began to piece together his war experiences, says his son, Bart Gallegos. Mr. Gallegos was barely out of his teens when he served on a "collection detail" during the Battle of the Bulge in 1944-1945. His job was to remove human remains from the field, his son says. "He just wanted to forget it. He was never out for the glory kind of life. He couldn't stand vanity in people, and he pretty much kept to himself, hoping that people would do the right thing." Yet, Mr. Gallegos found a place in Denver's creative scene. He painted with a passion, he found a voice in church as a soloist, and he left behind a painstaking tribute to one of the war's finest generals - Dwight Eisenhower. Mr. Gallegos was born in Trinidad on Nov. 17, 1922, the son of Liceta and Anecieto Gallegos. During the Depression, his father, a native of Spain, was a WPA foreman on the Western Slope. A year after Mr. Gallegos graduated from Holy Trinity Catholic High School in Trinidad in 1941, he enlisted in the U.S. Army at age 19 to train as a medic. Once the war ended, he came to Denver, where his parents had moved. Pursuing a passion for painting, Mr. Gallegos attended art school in San Francisco and was hired by Emily Griffith Opportunity School to work in the art department. Eventually, he became the school's audiovisual technician. His duties included running the school's printing press and developing photographs for school publications, his son says. On Labor Day 1949, Mr. Gallegos met a distant cousin for the first time. Elvera Sanchez had come to Denver with another cousin to enjoy a couple of days' vacation from her job as a beautician in Trinidad. Dancing to big band music at Elitch Gardens, the two "hit it off," she says. "He wasn't hard to get to know, and we loved to dance." Two years later, the couple married, again on Labor Day, Sept. 3. Richard Gallegos, the first of three sons, was born April 24, 1954. He was followed by Bart Gallegos on July 23, 1955, and Tim Gallegos on Sept. 19, 1960. "Family life was a happy one," says Bart Gallegos, who became a TV broadcaster in Colorado Springs. "It was in the Beaver Cleaver age." In his spare time, Mr. Gallegos painted signs and television studio sets and formed the Denver Art Club. Organization members displayed their paintings and artworks at the city's finest hotels, such as the Cosmopolitan and the Shirley Savoy. Mr. Gallegos also was a tenor soloist at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church. His most remarkable feat was to hand-copy Eisenhower's inaugural prayer onto a sheet of parchment for the president's chapel at the Denver Club Building, 518 17th St. Over a two-month period, Mr. Gallegos carefully lettered each word freehand, using India ink and gold leaf. "I've stared at the thing for hours at a time, looking for mistakes, and I couldn't find any," Bart Gallegos says. Mr. Gallegos died in his sleep at home. He is survived by his wife and sons, all of Denver; a brother, Eddie Gallegos, of Trinidad; and two granddaughters. Interment services were Nov. 5 at Fort Logan National Cemetery. The body was cremated.

Rick was born Dec. 28, 1958, in Oakland, Calif., where he was a precision machinist. Moving to Pueblo West a year ago, allowed him to fulfill his dream of being an involved, stay-at-home Dad.

Miguel Garcia - Colorado Public Defender – December 20, 1884 - Pueblo. H-W. Hanging/Broken neck. A native of Mexico, Garcia, age fifty-four, did not speak English. He was employed gathering old rags, bones, iron, etc. After a change of venue to Pueblo, Garcia was convicted of killing his employer, Dennis Wilkes, near Las Animas, in Bent County. Garcia crushed Wilkes' head while he lay in bed sleeping; the alleged motive was robbery. The murder occurred after Wilkes had employed Garcia for two weeks. Garcia abruptly left town before the body was discovered and pawned the victim's watch. Garcia was actually tried and convicted three times; the first conviction was set aside by the trial court because of errors in the trial transcript, and the second was set aside by the trial court because of insufficiency of the evidence. A crowd of approximately four thousand attended the execution, which, like the trial, was held in Pueblo.

Garcia, Raymond
Raymond Garcia - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - February 4, 1988 - Considerate Desk Clerk Shot Dead - Pueblo - A clerk who was shot to death at a north side hotel Wednesday was filling in for a co-worker who was held up there a week ago - possibly by the same robber, police said. Raymond Garcia, 26, agreed to work for a woman friend from 11 p.m. Tuesday to 7 a.m. Wednesday at the Hampton Inn, where Garcia was slain and a security guard was wounded. The guard, Robert Martinez, 26, of Pueblo, was shot in the face and was in stable condition at Parkview Episcopal Hospital in Pueblo. Less than 12 hours after the shootings, Ronald Lee White, 32, was arrested at his Colorado Springs apartment about 1:45 p.m. A tip to Pueblo Crime Stoppers led to White's arrest on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and aggravated robbery. Police believe the same man who robbed the hotel a week ago, terrifying the woman who Garcia worked for Wednesday, is responsible for the shootings. "He (Garcia) was real concerned about the woman who was robbed last week and he filled in for her last night," said the victim's father, Raymond Garcia. "He loved his job. He loved the people he worked with so he'd work extra time for them. Sometimes, if the housekeepers got too busy, he'd help them with their chores," Garcia said. Before he began working at the Hampton Inn two years ago, Garcia was robbed while working at the Holiday Inn in Pueblo. "They held him up," said the father. "He talked the robber out of the checks and the change. He told the robber the checks would not do him any good and the change would weigh him down. The robber gave back the checks and the change," Garcia said. The robber Wednesday took the life of Ruby and Raymond Garcia's only son, who lived with his parents and sister, Dolores, 23, in Boone, 20 miles east of Pueblo. Garcia was behind the hotel counter when confronted by the early-morning robber. Martinez, an armed security guard, interrupted the robbery, Pueblo police said. "It startled him," said Pueblo Police Capt. Reuben Archuleta. Martinez did not have time to draw his weapon and was ordered to another room, shot in the face with either a .357-caliber or .38 -caliber revolver, and left for dead. "A few minutes later the security guard heard the second shot," Archuleta said. Garcia was shot in the right temple in an office behind the hotel counter, said Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer. The robber escaped with an undetermined amount of money. Later, at Parkview Hospital, Martinez was able to give police a description of the robber: white, about 25, 6 feet tall with a strong, muscular build. He had medium-brown hair, a mustache and a well-kept beard. Garcia attended grade school in Boone, and graduated with honors from Pueblo County High School. Denver Post - February 4, 1988 - Pueblo Hotel Clerk Shot, Killed - Pueblo - A gunman shot and killed a 26-year-old hotel clerk and wounded a security guard early Wednesday during a holdup at the Hampton Inn. A suspect - Ronald Lee White, 32, Colorado Springs - was arrested later in the day and taken to Pueblo for questioning. Killed in the robbery was Raymond Garcia, 26, of Boone, a small community east of Pueblo. The security guard - Robert Martinez, 20, of Pueblo - was shot in the face and was being treated at Parkview Episcopal Hospital. Police said Martinez's condition was stable. The robbery occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Wednesday at the hotel on the north edge of Pueblo. Martinez, who walked into the lobby as the gunman was robbing the clerk, was forced into a back room and was shot. The gunman then shot Garcia in the head.

Frances M. Gardner - Pueblo Chieftain - April 17, 2005 - Frances M. Gardner. On April 14, 2005, our beloved Mom and "Mamo" passed away in Pueblo.

Please take a moment to reflect upon how mom touched your lives and how your life was better for her being in it. Alzheimer's claimed pieces of Mom's life long before death took her.

In lieu of flowers or food, the family respectfully requests that donations be made in memory of Frances to the Alzheimer's Association, to her favorite charity the Al Kaly Shrine Transportation Fund, or to the charity of your choice, directly or through the mortuary.

Gardner, Fred
Fred Gardner - Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain - February 13, 1879 - Death On the Trail. To a person who has never crossed the snowy range in the winter time it is next to impossible to convey an idea of the perils encountered by those who have to traverse the narrow, steep and treacherous trails in some of the mountain passes. Snow slides are of frequent occurrence especially in the early winter before the snow which falls very rapidly has become packed. A very slight jar or agitation will sometimes start an avalanche of several acres. The last victim we have heard of was Mr. Joseph Sellars, the faithful carrier who carries the mail from Silverton to Barber's ranch. The trail crosses the range at Cunningham gulch, and it is a dangerous road even in the summer time. He was coming east a week ago last Thursday and at Deep creek, a locality about one mile beyond Grassy Hill station, he was caught in a slide and carried down into a deep ravine and buried several feet under the snow. Mr. W. D. Watson, the keeper of Grassy Hill station, and several others exerted themselves to recover the body but did not succeed till the Monday following in finding him. The above particulars are gleaned from the Del Norte Prospector, and yesterday we learned from C. L. Weinberg that two other citizens of Silverton perished at the same time. One of them is named Morrison and the other Fred Gardner, a young lawyer formerly of Pueblo, and well known to many of our citizens. The mail had not been recovered at last accounts.

Ah, our dear departed wife, mother and sister, thou hast gone, and dark clouds of sorrow hover above us, yet through them we catch occasional glimpses of heaven, and we feel that God's welcome "Come up hither," was whispered to you. We will miss thee sadly as we continue our earthly journey along, yet we are consoled with the belief that when we lay aside the things of earth, and near that other land, thou, O our dear departed, will meet us, and welcome us to a world where all is peace, and parting is unknown.

Gaura, who had long been a resident of Oak Creek, became insane because of brooding over trouble with his wife, and was several months ago sent to the asylum. Oak Creek Times – July 20, 1916 – Oak Creek Man Dies In Asylum at Pueblo – Word was received last week that Joe Gaura, who was adjudged insane in the county court on February 8, 1916, had died on July 6. Gaura became insane from brooding over family troubles and imagined that he was to be the savior of his country, thinking he had been appointed to take the place of President Wilson. The Routt county lunacy commission, consisting of Drs. Willett and Dodge, acted on his case and found him to be a hopeless lunatic, and at the time concurred in the belief that he could not live longer than a few months. Their opinion was borne out by the death of Gaura. – The Pilot.

Gerry, Edward
Edward Gerry – 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.

Gianardi, John
John Ginardi - Walsenburg World - July 4, 1924 - Dead Man Discovered Near Ravenwood Thursday - The body of a man believed to be that of John Ginardi, who disappeared from his home on East Seventh Street on June 12th, was discovered Thursday in a partly decomposed condition on a hill on the other side of Ravenwood. The body was discovered by Sam Pacheco of Ravenwood, who was out looking for some horses. Details of the gruesome find are not available at his time, since we go to press early on account of our regular press day being on the 4th of July, but report is that there is evidence of foul play, that the body discovered had a hole in the head, and that some empty shells were found near the body, but the theory of suicide can not be held since there was no gun found anywhere near the body. Joe Viscoli, a son-in-law of the man is of the opinion that Ginardi was enticed away and done to death. We may be able to give more details before going to press, since an examination of the body by physicians is to be made this (Thursday) afternoon. Ginardi was last seen on Thursday, June 12th. At this time he gave some money to his grandchildren, Gulfo and Sergio Viscoli, and they reported that at that time he complained of a headache. Ginardi was missed Friday when Mrs. Viscoli, his daughter, went to the home of her father and found the house in confusion with his clothes lying on the floor. There was some money found in one of the bureau drawers, so that robbery is not thought to be a motive for any crime. The authorities were not notified of the disappearance of Ginardi until Saturday, June 14th, when a search of ht hills was made but without result until the finding of the body Thursday of this week. Ginardi was about 55 years of age and has lived in Walsenburg for the past fifteen years, and had a market garden east of the city.***** Walsenburg World - July 4, 1924 - Gianardi Was Shot, Report The Examining Physicians -An examination made by Dr. Noonan late Thursday afternoon disclosed the fact that John Gianardi had been shot. The bullet entered at the outer side of the eye and ranged to the back of the skull fracturing it at the rear but did not make an exit. It does not appear, however, that the man could have shot himself since there was no gun found anywhere near him, although seven shells were found near his hat on the ground, and there was one shell in his pocket. It would rather appear that the man was murdered, and an attempt made to make it appear like suicide. An eighth ounce bottle of strychnine was also found near the body, with about one third of the contents emptied. This might show suicide were it not for the wound in the head, the shells and the absence of any gun. The coroner informs us that the body will be retained until Tuesday, and that he will consult the district attorney before deciding upon an inquest. There is very little evidence that can be put before a jury. John Gianardi's daughter visited the body at the undertaking establishment of Furphy Brothers and identified the body as that of her father. John Gianardi - World Independent - July 4, 1924 - John Gianardi Found Dead with Bullet Hole Thru Temple - Bible And Poison Lying Near Body Discovered At Ravenwood Today. Murder or Suicide? That is the question that officials in the sheriff's office are trying to answer as the result of the discovery of a body that has been identified as belonging to John Gianardi, who disappeared from his home here on June 12. The gruesome find was made by Sam Pacheko, a miner at the Ravenwood mine, who was attempting to find a team of horses that had strayed away during the night. When first discovered, the body was almost entirely disintegrated, and the eyes had dropped out, but a bullet hole thru the right temple and another thru the top of the dead man's skull seems to lead Sheriff Charles Cornwall into the theory that the man was murdered. The fact that no gun, and that several empty shells were found in the near vicinity, leads officials further into this theory, and they are preparing to make a concentrated search for clews that might lead into finding a supposed murderer. On the other hand, a bottle of deadly poison and a Bible were found beside the body, indicating as far as one can see that suicide had been the case. The sheriff, accompanied by Deputy Sheriff Tom True and Coroner Gabe Furphy, left immediately for the scene of the tragedy near Ravenwood, when informed by Pacheko, After finding the bottle of strychnine near the body, the officials brought the ghastly thing to the morgue where it is being examined to find if any poison had entered the body. True expressed the opinion that Gianardi had committed suicide, and that a stranger had stolen the gun from the dead body, without reporting the find to the sheriff. At the time he disappeared, Gianardi left practically no clew as to where he might be. He left his home, apparently to return again, after presenting two of his grandchildren with a dollar each. A posse searched for several days after his disappearance, but gave up the search as hopeless. The dead man was 55 years old. He had lived here for 15 years, and had worked at the Walsen mine most of the time. Before leaving his home on June 12, Gianardi complained of having a headache. ***Walsenburg World - July 8, 1924 - John Gianardi Funeral Sunday - Funeral services for John Gianardi, whose dead body was found on the hill near Ravenwood, was held at the Catholic church Sunday. Gianardi had been missing for about three weeks at the time his body was found. At the inquest held over the remains the jury found that Gianardi came to his death from a gun shot wound received in the head, but did not determine whether the killing was felonious or not. John Gianardi has lived in the Untied States for the past twenty-five years, most of that time in Walsenburg. The deceased is survived by two sons, Marcelino Gianardi of Kansas City; and John Gianardi, Jr., of this city; and by four daughters, Mrs. Teresa Viscoli, Mrs. Lena Ferri, and Miss Stella Gianardi of this city, and Mrs. Jennie W. Nickol of Kansas City. Interment was in the Catholic cemetery under the direction of Furphy Brothers, undertakers. ***World Independent July 8, 1924 - Inquest Is Held Over Body Of John Gianardi - The inquest over the body of John Gianardi, 50 year old resident of this community, whose body was found near Ravenwood Thursday by Sam Pacheko, was held Saturday afternoon in the court room, with Sheriff Charles Cornwall, Dr. G.M. Noonan and Sam Pacheko testifying as the principal witnesses. After hearing the evidence, which brought out the fact that Gianardi was shot thru the head, the coroner's jury brought in a verdict declaring that he came to his death as the result of a bullet wound that was inflicted by himself or by the hand of someone unknown. At the time of his disappearance on June 12, Gianardi complained of having a headache. Before leaving his home he gave two of his grandchildren a dollar each. This is thought by some officials to indicate the deceased committed suicide, since a prayer book that belonged to his dead wife and a bottle of deadly poison were found along side of the body. The funeral was held Sunday from the Furphy Undertaking parlors.

Gideon, Henry
Henry Gideon – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – October 30, 1879 – About one o'clock this morning a row occurred in Dillett's saloon, between a white man and a negro named Henry Gideon. The former bounced a chair over the head of the latter, who retreated, but soon returned armed with a revolver and opened fire from the outside upon his enemy in the room. The first shot struck a peaceable spectator named Roberts in the left shoulder, the ball ranging inward and backward. Whether Gideon fired more than once is not known, as at that juncture Louis Kreeger, the night police, fired two shots, one striking the negro in the head and glancing upward, the other passing through or near the heart. He ran a few steps and fell dead. The verdict in Trinidad is Trinidad justice, or served him right.

Gilbert, George
George Gilbert - Pueblo Chieftain - September 23, 2001 - Cemetery Ghosts Tell Stories of Pueblo's Past By James Amos - George Gilbert has been dead a long time, but he came back "above the grass" Saturday for "A Walk Through History" at the Pueblo Pioneer Cemetery. Saturday marked the fourth year of the living history event, sponsored by the Pueblo Parks and Recreation Department and the Pueblo Pioneer Cemetery Committee. Gilbert, Portrayed by local volunteer Phillip Redinger, was one of several cemetery denizens to talk about their lives in early Pueblo. Gilbert said he had two grave markers, one placed by his second wife, but he doesn't know where the other stone came from. After all it's a little hard to get reliable information from the early 1900s, informative ghost or not. Gilbert was born in New York in 1836 and came to Pueblo after trying to prospect for gold in the Colorado mountains with little success. He moved to a spot east of Boone and married, but his first wife died at 35. His two sons later died from diphtheria and after he remarried he and his second wife lost a young daughter too. He sold his herd of 1,500 cattle and moved into town in 1879. Gilbert worked around the Pueblo and helped lay out the city, according to Redinger. He died at the age of 75 in 1911. Redinger said this is his third year portraying one of the cemetery's residents. The first year he performed a small skit in addition to his talk. Further down the cemetery trail, Tom Cummings portrayed one-time Pony Express rider J.J. Thomas. Thomas was born in 1837 and worked as a teamster in the Army in southern Kansas before he moved to Colorado to help built a stage stop. When the Oak Creek stage stop east of Denver was finished, Thomas and his friend were hired to be Pony Express riders and were the first in the area. But Thomas, too, caught gold fever and spent a cold and hungry time in the mountains before joining a Colorado unit going to the Civil War. Thomas thought he would be shipped east to fight, but instead stayed in the West and was part of the battle at Glorietta Pass in New Mexico. Area historian Eleanor Fry said, the battle sprang from a plan by the South to take over the Southern part of the Western states, including some of Colorado's gold fields. Thomas's Union Army unit "headed them off at the pass" Fry said. Thomas also was part of a unit sent to recover materials stolen by Indians in a raid near Santa Fe, Cummings said. The unit trailed the Indians nearly; to Amarillo, Texas, and there recovered 94 mules without a fight. Thomas' fortunes took a turn upward when he returned to Pueblo and, with, partners, built a toll bridge across the Arkansas River, ran a hotel and sold vegetables he grew where the current Midtown Shopping Center stands. With his economic success, the former horse-feed hauler hung around with one of the Thatcher banking brothers, became postmaster, county treasurer and even represented the area in Colorado's second state assembly. Thomas died in 1911 and had five children, although two died when they were young, Cummings said. Fry did the research on each of the history walk's 13 characters. She is a member of the Pueblo County Historical Society and the Committee for the Restoration of the Pueblo Pioneers Cemetery. "I've been working on this for about 20 years," Fry said. She found her information in old archives of The Pueblo Chieftain, including long reminiscences written by Thomas himself Fry said there's a wealth of information about the town's rich and powerful in the old newspaper articles. "Some of these early pioneers, every time they crossed the street it was reported in the paper," she said.

Gilbert, Marian C.
Marian C. Gilbert - Rocky Mountain News - October 01, 1911, Page 1 - Mrs. Marian C. Gilbert is charged with giving her husband rat poison, by Pueblo officials. Her husband died Aug 31, 1910. Charges of causing her husband's death were made by the Brotherhood of American Yeomen, which resisted payment of a $2,000 life insurance policy carried by Gilbert. Mrs. Gilbert had sued for settlement, but she dismissed it on June 10, 1911, endeavoring to reach a compromise. Gilbert was a freight conductor for 14 yeas on Denver & Rio Grande. Coming home on Aug 31, 1910 he complained of a severe headache. He kept a prescription for this ailment, took a dose, became unconscious and died shortly after arriving at the hospital. Mrs. Gilbert later moved to Denver. Rocky Mountain News – October 20, 1911, Page 3 - Trial News Article - Mrs. Gilbert continues her suit even though she has been arrested on a charge of killing her husband. She charges the insurance company with conspiring to secure an indictment against her and with threatening to secure her arrest on this count if she persisted in trying to collect the $2,000 insurance. Mrs. Gilbert claims in an affidavit that representative of the Yeomen called on her shortly after her husband's death, and tired to coerce her into not making a claim for his insurance, threatening to charge her with the murder if she persisted. She was arrested in Denver, Sep 30 and was taken to Pueblo, where she will be tried next month. She claims she has no funds to prosecute her suit and asks permission to sue at county expense.

Giles, Fred
Fred Giles – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 22, 1877 – Shooting Affray – Fred. Giles Killed – From a private letter from Del Norte received by a gentleman in this city, dated the 12th inst., we learn the following particulars of a shooting affray near that place on Saturday last, which resulted in the death of Fred. Giles, a son of M. M. Giles, formerly of this city. It seems that John Arms, of this city, owns some oxen which M. M. Giles had in his possession, and claimed them as his own. Mr. Arms being desirous to obtain possession of the animals authorized parties residing in Del Norte to proceed according to law and recover them if possible. The parties so authorized, accompanied by an officer of the law and provided with the proper papers, proceeded to the Piρos saw mill, thirteen miles from Del Norte, where Giles resides, for the purpose of taking possession of the oxen. Giles, it seems, knew of the coming of the officers, and placing the cattle in the building and arming himself, threatened to kill anybody who undertook to take the cattle. The officers returned to Del Norte for assistance, and soon came back to the mill assisted by several armed men. Some shooting then followed, in the course of which young Giles was killed. Mr. and Mrs. Giles are both under arrest. The Murder of Fred Giles – A few days since we published an account of one side of the story of the shooting of Fred Giles, a son of M. M. Giles, formerly of this city. We now give another version of the affair, published in the Del Norte Prospector, which if correct shows that Fred. Giles was brutally murdered, and M. M. Giles and his wife cruelly and unjustifiably assaulted by ruffians acting under legal authority. The following is the Prospector's account of the affair: M. M. Giles had in his possession an ox that was claimed by Dr. W. W. Allen, and on Tuesday, the 6th inst., Allen went before Justice Goodrich and got out a writ of replevin, which in the absence of any of the regular officers, was placed in the hands of B. U. Vincent, who was deputized to act for this occasion. On Wednesday Vincent went after the ox, which Giles refused to give up. Vincent returned to town and went before Justice Haffy, and swore out a complaint against Giles for resisting an officer of the law, whereupon a warrant was issued for his arrest and placed in the hands of Constable Winter, who having some other business to attend at the time, deputized ____ Robinson to make the arrest. Saturday forenoon Robinson, in company with Vincent, started to Giles' place, the former to arrest Giles and the latter with the replevin for the ox. They both went direct to the house and while the warrant for the arrest of Giles was being read an altercation ensued in which Vincent struck Giles with his revolver, inflicting a severe wound on the left temple, then turned and struck Mrs. Giles on the head, knocking her down. Robinson caught Giles and raised him from the ground, at the same time telling him he was his prisoner. As soon as Giles was sufficiently recovered from the effects of the blow he called to his son to get the gun and shoot, which according to the testimony of Robinson he did, shooting three times, but not hitting either of them. Both officers then took to their heels and made lively time until out of range of the gun. Robinson then went to some of the neighbors, and summoned a posse to arrest and take Giles, but during the time Vincent had gone above the house, where he awaited the return of the posse, evidently intending, if Giles put in an appearance, to put a quietus upon him, but in the meanwhile the son appeared and while in the act of picking up some chips was fired upon by Vincent, and according to the testimony of Dr. Metcalfe, who performed the post mortem examination, the ball entered the top of the head, passed through the brain and heart and lodged in the lumbar region, producing instant death. The ball was from a Sharp's rifle, forty-four calibre. The posse with Robinson were about sixty yards from the house, did not see the boy fall, but came to the spot soon after. Upon hearing the report of the gun Giles rushed from the bed, where he had gone from weakness of loss of blood, to the door, and when he saw the men and what had been done, threw up his hands, wildly exclaiming: "Good God! Men, see what you have done. Are you going to kill us all?" Constable Winter being afraid that some difficulty would arise, as soon as he could leave got a horse and followed, arriving at the scene a few minutes after the boy was killed. This was at about two o'clock P. M. He stationed guards over the corpse until Coroner Hill could be summoned and an inquest held, arrested Vincent and brought Giles and all the party to town. The inquest was held Sunday and the body was brought to town, it having been decided that a post mortem examination would be necessary, which was conducted by Dr. Metcalfe with the results above given. The coroner's jury returned a verdict of unjustifiable homicide, and a portion of the preliminary examination took place before Justice Goodrich, when a postponement was asked for and granted until the 19th of this month. Vincent is now in jail awaiting trial. Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 29, 2877 – The trial of U. B. Vincent, charged with the murder of Fred Giles, took place, says the Prospector, before 'Squire Goodrich Wednesday. The court ruled that no circumstantial evidence could be admitted and as there was no evidence to show that Vincent had done the shooting, there was no case and Vincent was discharged. We have conversed with a number of persons on the subject, and there seems to be an impression that a regular trial should have been gone through with and all the circumstances brought out that would throw any light on the subject. That Vincent killed the boy there is no doubt, but under what circumstances should have been proved and if he were justifiable should have been proven so.

Gladhill, Theodore
Theodore Gladhill – Pueblo Chieftain - October 14, 1914 - Theodore Gladhill, well known resident of Leadville, Colo., died at that place yesterday. Deceased was well known in Pueblo and was a member of the Eagles lodge. Remains will arrive in this city today and will be taken to McCarthy's. Funeral announcement will be made later. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – October 19, 1914 – Crushed Under Freight Car – Theodore Gladhill, Colorado Midland Brakeman, Fell Under Wheels and Lost Both Legs – Amputation Fails to Save Life – Theodore Gladhill, aged 47 years, a brakeman on the Colorado Midland railway, died shortly after 9 last night at St. Vincent's hospital, following an accident at Arkansas Junction in the afternoon in which both of his legs were run over by the wheel of a freight car. Gladhill's death followed an operation performed at about 7:15 to amputate the mangled legs below the knees. The brakeman, who had been employed with the Colorado Midland for three months, left Leadville at 3:40 yesterday afternoon to run to Cardiff on a freight train which was in charge of Conductor F. E. Glynn, Brakeman O. W. Lenhart, and Gladhill. None of the crew saw the accident in the yards at the Junction. When the trainmen were bringing Gladhill to Leadville on a caboose attached to one of the extra engines which help the trains "over the hill," he said he stepped to the end of the string of freight cars to open a knuckle of the coupling. The engine had just been released from the string, and Gladhill did not realize the amount of slack between the cars. As the cars crowded together in taking up the slack, they bumped into the brakeman, knocking him down and forcing a wheel of one truck over his legs just below the knee, striking one leg squarely and the other at an angle. Conductor Glynn and Brakeman Lenhart rushed to his aid on hearing his cries. Gladhill had his arms thrown about the brake beam when they found him, and they released his death-like clutch only with difficulty. After the accident Gladhill displayed remarkable pluck. He did not lose consciousness after the accident, and in spite of the terrible pain talked freely with the trainmen. The trainmen put him on the caboose immediately and hastened him to Leadville, where an ambulance was waiting to take him to St. Vincent's hospital. As the physicians and trainmen were pushing the stretcher over the little track which receives it in the ambulance, it unexpectedly ran off of one rail. "Wait a minute, boys; you can't run me in that way," said Gladhill, despite the sudden wrench the movement gave his mangled legs. "I'm off the track." Later when he was taken to the hospital he kept up the same nervy attitude, and jested with John H. McGrall, yardmaster of the Midland, about the accident, remarking that "a little thing like that can't make me die." But Gladhill was unable to survive the enormous shock of the accident and the operation necessitated later to remove the crushed legs to prevent blood poisoning. He was known to practically all of the railroad men in Leadville and many other residents, having been an "old timer" in the railroad fraternity and formerly a railroad man here for ten years or more before his last employment of three months with the Midland, residing here then in East Eighth street. While he lived here formerly he was employed on both the Midland and the Denver and Rio Grande. He had lived at Creede, Cripple Creek, Salida and Pueblo. His wife and two children survive him in Pueblo, residing at 623 East Third street. Conductor Glynn telegraphed the wife concerning the accident as soon as possible, and she is expected to arrive here this morning. Yardmaster McGrall also notified her by telephone. Gladhill was a member of the Cripple Creek lodge of Eagles, Aerie No. 36. C. B. Carter, local agent of the Midland, notified J. W. McMahon, secretary of the Leadville Eagles, Aerie No. 91, of the accident. Gladhill had also been a member of the railroad men's brotherhood, though it was said he had allowed his membership to expire. The brakeman's remains were taken in charge by Coroner E. R. O'Malia.

Hay, who united Mr. Gleyer in marriage to Miss Anna Deladar less than two years ago, preached a short and most impressive sermon. He was visibly affected by the sad scene, and there was scarcely a dry eye in all the concourse gathered there to pay their respect to the dead friend, whose young life had been so suddenly terminated, and under circumstances that seemed most cruel and void of everything that would in the least mitigate the awful grief of the bereaved wife and brother and sister to the departed husband and father. The remains were taken to Mountain view cemetery and placed by the side of his brother Lou, who was killed about one year ago.

It was necessary to remove the mine car from the track in order to take Gomez's body from the mine.

The wreck, with Gomez pinned underneath, was discovered by Max Vigil, Gomez' employer, about dawn Sunday.

Pueblo Chieftain - December 9, 2006 - A Pueblo man was sentenced Friday to 14 years in prison for the stabbing death of a man who had been his house guest for weeks leading up to the crime. Steven Lee Solt, 47, pleaded guilty to reduced charges of reckless manslaughter and menacing for the May 20 death of Kenneth Gomez Sr. District Judge Rosalie Vigna on Friday imposed a 12-year prison term for the manslaughter charge, and ordered the two-year sentence for menacing to be served consecutively. Solt faced a possible maximum sentence of 16 years in prison. Prosecutors dismissed the most serious charge against Solt, second-degree murder, in exchange for his pleas of guilty to the lesser charges. The charges against Solt resulted from an early-morning knifing at Solt's residence in the 100 block of West Routt Avenue that followed a day of hard drinking by Solt, Gomez and Gomez's son, 21-year-old Kenneth Gomez Jr. The Gomezes had been staying at Solt's residence for about three weeks when the elder Gomez was slain. According to a police report, the senior Gomez had locked himself out of Solt's house and banged on the door, which police said enraged Solt. Solt then grabbed a knife and told Gomez's son, "I'm going to kill your dad," police reported. Gomez Jr. did not believe Solt meant the threat literally, until he heard a loud struggle. Before it was done, the elder Gomez had been stabbed six times. He died soon afterward at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center.

According to the latest information we have received about this matter, it appears that cattle stealing was carried on to a great extent in the Huerfano Canon, and the stock owners there had employed Roy as a detective to find out who the thieves were. He caught this man Gomez in the act of skinning a stolen steer. At the time of the murder Gomez had attacked Roy, and as a crowd of Mexicans were approaching Roy shot Gomez in order to make his escape. This, we are assured is a correct statement of the affair.

My Grandmother by Laura Read - Huerfano World - December 2, 1999 - My story is about an 86 year old woman who is young at heart and mind. During the 18 years I've known her, I have found her to be stubborn at times but also very kind and considerate. This is my grandma Amada Gonzalez. When I think of my grandma, the word feisty comes to mind. I think of this because she is always going against the grind. When she should be home, she is gone visiting friends. She is always fixing up things around her yard herself instead of asking for help. If she has an idea in her head, no one can change it. This is what makes her so fun to be around. Grandma has taught me to fix things easily and she has told me stories of her experiences that happened to her on her family's farm when she was a little girl. I always remember when I was younger, we would both get up early in the morning and make breakfast together. After we ate we would fix the bed and clean her house. When we were done, we would never stay home; she always had something to do up her sleeve. We played games, went for walks in the garden, or we just drove around town together. My grandma knows a lot for only attending school up to the fifth grade. Her home was on a farm where there was always work to be done. She could only go to school when she was finished with her chores. She has taught me some of the things she used to do on her farm like; weed gardens, care for people that are sick, and help animals that are hurt. I like the way that my grandma always takes care of me when I am sick. I also like the way that she tries to sneak me some candy when no one else is looking. She always has fun things to do. We used to play frisbee, race to the end of her long driveway, and wash her car on the hot summer days. Grandma is never sitting still, she is always up doing something. One of the things we both like to do is to go shopping at the store for groceries. We used to buy cakes and sandwiches for picnics in her front yard. I have spent a lot of time with my grandma. She has been a very special person in my life and I hope she will never change.
