Lacy, Isaac W.
Isaac W. Lacy - Dolores News - May 21, 1881 - Murder Most Foul! - I. W. Lacy Killed By One of His Employees - Suspicions that "Big Dan" Newland was Not the Only Man Who Helped Do the Deed - The news came to Rico last Sunday that Isaac W. Lacy, the well-known cattle man had been killed by one Dan Howland, commonly known as "Big Dan." As Mr. Lacy has a large number of acquaintances in this section (and in every acquaintance he counts a friend) the news was received with bitter regret. It is even now difficult to ascertain in just what manner the shooting was done, as there are several versions of the sad affair in circulation. The first one is the one which was printed in the Durango Record, which we reprint here: "Big Dan and Mr. Lacy were together, at Lacy's slaughter house near the Fort, in company with Tom Nance and a butcher. Howland told Lacy that he wanted ten dollars. Lacy answered that he did not have any money for him. The request and reply were repeated two or three times, when Howland remarked that if he didn't give him the money he would give Lacy something worse. Being once more refused, he drew his revolver and shot Lacy twice in the breast. Howland mounted a pony which was at hand, and decamped on the road in the rear of the Fort, leading to Parrott City. Nance immediately mounted Lacy's horse and rode to the Fort for a physician, who in turn rode the horse back to the slaughter house only to find Lacy dead." The next report was that J. F. Bond, the saddler, had sent $10 to Howland by Lacy, and that as Howland owed Lacy $10, he told Howland he would keep that and their account would be square. Howland told Lacy that he thought that he ought to have the ten dollars and that Lacy went outside, where he had a Winchester rifle and that he cocked it and was waiting for Howland to come out; that Howland saw Lacy through the window and reaching around the door fired two shots with his pistol, without exposing his body and that Lacy was killed instantly. These are two of the versions, which embody all of the ideas advanced. Each of these theories have their supporters. It is also stated that parties now living in Trinidad or vicinity hired this Howland to come to this country and kill Lacy and the conspiracy terminated as desired by them. However this may be, we think it would be well to look upon the testimony given before the coroner's jury as suspicious, to say the least. It is a very fine thing to murder a man, lay a cocked Winchester down by the side of the dead body and swear that he was trying to use the weapon with murderous intent. When we take into account the known character of one of the witnesses, whose name was mentioned before, and who has managed to be on hand at a great many shooting scrapes in La Plata county within the past year, we think it safe to say that his testimony should be taken far below par. Couple these statements with the fact that Lacy was a brother-in-law of Ike Stockton, and it does not seem at all improbable that there are circumstances in the case which will never come to light. We have known of Mr. Lacy for some years and he has ever been a gentleman of honor in his business transactions, sociable and pleasant in companionship and a liberal and enterprising citizen. Mr. Lacy was a Kentuckian by birth, although at an early age he removed to Texas and has been engaged in the cattle business in that State, New Mexico and Colorado for many years, and was possessed of all those qualities of frontier manliness for which cow-men of the old-time days are so noted. He was formerly a member of the firm of Coleman & Lacy, on the Dry Cimarron, but when they dissolved partnership in the fall of 1878, Mr. Lacy moved many of his cattle to La Plata county, this state, and associated himself with Geo. W. Thompson, of Trinidad. His home is in Colfax county N. M. where his family still are, with the exception of two daughters, who are going to school in Trinidad. A squad of twenty men were started in pursuit of the murderer about twenty minutes after Howland started, but failed to capture him. Hand-bills were out in a short time offering $2000 reward for the murderer, signed by Mrs. Lacy. It is reported that Henry Goodman, who was Lacy's foreman, has started out after him and the chances are that he will be captured. Lacy was a very wealthy man, having large numbers of cattle on various ranges. The murder was committed at about half-past three o'clock in the afternoon of Thursday, the 12th inst. at Lacy's slaughter house, a few miles out from Durango, and the body was brought into Animas City at a late hour that night. Col. Gash, who was on his way from Trinidad to Rico, took charge of the body of his dead friend and started with it for Trinidad. Dolores News - May 28, 1881 - Damning Evidence! Startling Statements! Concerning the Foul Murder of Lacy Because He Was Ike Stockton's Friend - A Full, Fearless and Complete Account of How Matters Stand in the Lower Country - It will be remembered by our readers that in our last issue we made the assertion that it was our firm belief that there were facts which were not then in our possession which would show that the death of I. W. Lacy was the result of a foul plot to murder and that "Big Dan" Howland was not the only one who was concerned in it. Since the date of our last issue we have been busily at work trying to ferret out the true inwardness of the dastardly murder and have gathered all the facts which it is possible for those outside the Farmington mob of murderers to know. Before we proceed to lay these before the public we will make some corrections of statements calculated to mislead which appeared last week. We stated that Mr. Lacy was a brother-in-law of Ike Stockton and that "Big Dan" was in Lacy's employ at the time Lacy was murdered. These were both untrue. The truth is that the distant relationship existing between Lacy and Stockton was that Lacy's wife was Stockton's first cousin; but the two men had been intimate friends for the past 15 years and Stockton has had charge of his cattle and business for a long time. They were just like brothers and since Stockton's wife and child have moved to Animas City, Lacy has made his home with Stockton. In this friendship the Farmington mob saw a friendship so strong that unless it was broken would prove a great obstacle in their path, as it would show that Stockton ranked as a bosom friend with a man, who was at once wealthy, honorable, and respected. Besides the financial help he might give to Stockton, the moral pressure of the friendship was too great for them to bear and they resolved to break it at any cost. The first plan they adopted was this: different men of the murderous gang were selected to write letters to Lacy telling him that Stockton had been killing his cattle, stealing his horses and robbing him in every way possible. These letters coming from so many different parties made Lacy feel uneasy and he at once started for this country. He found everything all right, of course, and that game would not work. Then they wrote Lacy's wife six letters, telling her that Stockton had made open threats that as soon as he met Lacy he would make him crawl on his hands and knees for a certain distance (50 yards, we believe) and then kill him and telling her to warn her husband against her cousin. Lacy received her letters telling him about their doings while at Stockton's house and laughed at it. He wrote her that he was all right, to which she replied: "You may be safe, but I cannot believe you are: I think there will be trouble from some source and I wish you and Ike would both come home." Couple all of these warnings with the threats from the Farmington mob Lacy began to realize that he was in danger. He was working all the time trying to settle the differences between two hostile factions and was called on to put up a reward for the capture of Stockton and his band of men by "some of Farmington's best citizens." He was told that if he did not do so that he would be killed. He said: "I guess I will have to die then, for I will never put up my money to have one of my best friends murdered." Tom Nance, it is said, threatened that if Lacy did not walk a chalk line, he would kill him himself, and just the day before Lacy was killed he was warned that F. M. Hamblet had said that the rope was ready for Lacy whenever he positively refused to put up the reward. Lacy remarked to a friend that he knew these men were mean enough to murder him, but he hardly thought they had the nerve to undertake it. Failing by all these means to sever the friendship, the last extremity was resorted to and I. W. Lacy, to-day, lies in his grave, the victim of a cowardly assassin, because he was too true a friend to betray him. Having given all the details of the actions of this gang of murderers before the final scene in this awful tragedy was enacted, we will define the exact position in which Lacy and "Big Dan" stood. Dan was hired by Thompson & Lacy to come over into this country to find out just how matters were between Stockton and his men and the lower Animas cutthroats. Dan came over 7 or 8 days ahead of Lacy and was on the Durango police force about a week. Lacy found out on his arrival that Dan was not the kind of man he supposed he was, but was a contemptible, underhanded person and discharged him, but no hard words passed between them at that time. At the time of the fight at Durango, Dan went down to Farmington and to all appearances became a member of the gang then, and from that time he rode a horse which was stolen from Lark Reynolds, but had been sold to Lacy. This is the same horse which Dan rode to Fort Lewis, and there is more than a probability that this had a little something to do with Lacy's murder, as he very likely wanted to recover his stolen property. Dan no doubt treasured resentment against Lacy and after association with the lower Animas mob, who all wanted Lacy killed, he evidently was on the lookout for an opportunity to murder him. The facts which are immediately connected with the murder are these: Lacy owned a house (a kind of dug-out,) which might be said to be in Fort Lewis, as it is just out of the post. He had gone out there to see about some of his business and while there Dan rode in and got an order from one of the officers to have his horse shod at the government blacksmith shop. We suppose he did not want to make his escape on a bare-footed horse, having already made up his mind to kill Lacy in any event. As soon as the horse was shod, he rode direct to Lacy's dug-out, near the slaughter-house, and hitching his (?) horse he went in and sat down on the bed. Lacy was then bending over the fire-place, trying to kindle a fire. "Big Dan" said: "Lacy, I want that $10 of mine you collected in Durango." Lacy said: "Dan, I settled bills for you in Durango amounting to a good deal more than that; but if you insist that it is due you, I will get the money for you." Dan said: "You had better do it; you will either give it to me, or I will give you something worse." Lacy turned and walked out of the house, probably intending to walk over to the post, for the purpose of getting the money. As he started out, Dan rose from the bed and threw his coat back of his pistol and scabbard, so that no difficulty would be had in getting hold of it. This was done before Lacy got out of the door and was unseen by him. As Lacy turned out of sight past the casing of the door Dan jerked his pistol and peering round the door fired one shot and then jumped back inside. He peeped out again and then jumped clear out of the door and fired three more shots, when Lacy fell. It is said that there was a Winchester rifle at the corner of the dug-out and that Lacy tried to shoot Dan with it, but it would have been impossible for him to have reached it before he was shot, as he had but just got past the side of the door. A Winchester was found cocked by his side after death, but there was no cartridge in it, which is, of itself, a very significant fact. One bullet entered Lacy's body squarely in the back. That is, without the shadow of a doubt, the first shot fired, as Lacy was walking away from the door. Another was just a little back of his side, probably fired as Lacy turned to face his murderer; and the other two are fairly in the breast. This damning evidence is sufficient of itself to show foul play. If Lacy picked up a rifle at all (which we doubt) it must have been after he was shot, and trying to defend himself. If "Big Dan" removed the cartridges before entering the dug-out, he could murder his victim without the slightest fear of danger to himself. Dan jumped on his horse and rode away from the place and is now near Farmington with his murderous companions, aided and abetted by them, "the best citizens of Rio Arriba county." We believe that they are the best that the county affords, but they would be run out of the meanest country in any other part of America. This is one of the darkest crimes, of the long calendar of murders which can be traced directly to the door of these "good citizens." They have been either the instigators or the executors of nine-tenths of the killings in this lower country for the past four years, and most of them had to leave Colfax county, N. M. for complicity in many crimes. They said then that they wanted to go to a country where they could defy the law and it seems that they have succeeded in finding a place where they can defy and evade it to their hearts content. Now we will show up a little of "Big Dan's" history prior to his last contemptible murder: It will be remembered that a short time ago a Mexican, one of Hersey's sheep-herders, was killed not far south of Durango, but there are few who know that "Big Dan" Howland killed him. When the Durango fight was over Dan mounted a horse and joined the Farmington mob. While riding along the road they met this Mexican, alone. They all stopped and several of the party, to show their bravery, threw their guns down on him. "Big Dan" asked who he was and one said: "It is one of Hersey's sheep-herders." "Big Dan" said in a jocose manner: "Well, he looks like a spy for the Stockton party, and I'll just kill him anyway." The Mexican pulled out a silver dollar and said it was all the money he had, and that he could have it if he would not kill him. But "Big Dan" would not lose an opportunity of showing himself to be a b-a-a-d man by killing a man who was alone, unprotected and unarmed, for the small sum of one dollar, and shot him down and rode off in great hilarity. He is a murderer at heart and could not but obey the instincts of a depraved nature. Howland was a cousin of the celebrated Dave Rudabaugh, who was one of the notorious gang of "Forty Thieves," commanded by "Billy the Kid." Rudabaugh was always known as "Billy, the Kid's 1st lieutenant." Rudabaugh was captured and hung with three others and some enterprising artist took their pictures after their ignominious death. "Big Dan" secured one of these photographs and would "point with pride" to Rudabaugh and say: "that was my cousin." It is no disgrace to a man to be a relative of a notorious criminal, but to be proud of the fact is a deep disgrace. Compare the characters of the murderer and his victim and the conclusion is that the cowardly cur murdered Lacy in cold blood with no provocation. Lacy always managed to keep out of trouble and Dan and his Farmington friends have always managed to keep their necks in ripe condition for the halter, always being connected with some murdering scrape. Commend us to the tender mercies of Apache Indians, with all their atrocity, but deliver us from such foul murderers as this lower Animas band. They may impose upon the public by writing whining letters to various papers, but we have known these men for four years and the tortures of the middle pit of hell would not be sufficient punishment for the thousand injuries they have done their fellow men. They have been hounding Stockton through the press of the country, until many men look upon him as a fiend in human shape, but we defy them to point to one single, solitary act in which Stockton has not shown himself a man of principle, of honor and of courage. Will the press of the country take the trouble, as we have done, to inquire into the actions of the two parties before branding them as outlaws, desperadoes, etc. It is true that indictments have been lodged against Stockton, Eskridge and six others in the Rio Arriba court, but they are the result of perjury and misrepresentation. Rewards for the arrest of these men are out but they do not flee from justice. They will not be delivered into Rio Arriba county however, as it would be certain death to them. These lower Animas people would be brave men with a rope, if the men they wanted to kill were in jail and awaiting a trial in which they would certainly be cleared, if awarded a fair and impartial trial. The men who compose this band who have run all decent citizens out of the country and murdered all those who would not comply with their demands have always managed to be in just such business as they are at present engaged in, and how they have so long escaped the gallows is a mystery to us. But there are men who stand prominent in the management of New Mexico affairs who desire to have at their back just such a gang of murderers and thieves and these dishonest officials "stand in" with the plunder and when the men who do their dirty work do some one of their terrible deeds these ring-leaders are compelled, for self-protection's sake, to help them and in this way more than any other do they fail to get their dues either in public opinion or at law, for these officials represent that they are good citizens, peaceable and honest, and are being robbed and murdered by outsiders. We refer to such men as Tom Catron, Breeden and Hubbell, who have virtually had New Mexican law in their hands for many years. With the license that such a condition of affairs would give them it is not to be wondered at that this gang of lower Animas men have grown to be supremely reckless and carry things with a high hand. It will be remembered that at the time of the round-up articles of agreement were signed stipulating that Dow Eskridge should be permitted to gather his cattle and that of his brothers and the Garrett boys. Reports came up this week that they had made a demand on Dow for the delivery to them of Ike Stockton before they would allow him to gather his cattle, which of course was an impossibility. We believe that they have killed and stolen so many of these cattle that they would not make a respectable showing and they make this ridiculous demand to avoid having them rounded up. We think that they would like to give up the cattle if they were alive, as the time has come when every action will be watched and they would like to do one good deed to accompany their many bad ones, so as to appear honest. They know that if they should turn over a small remnant of the original herds that it would show their dishonesty on the face of it. Dow has gone back again to see what can be done and we fear that he will be killed, in which case trouble will ensue at once of a more serious nature than this country has ever seen. The boys will take their cattle out of that country, civilly, if possible, but forcibly if they must. Dolores News - July 30, 1881 - Geo. Thompson and Mrs. I. W. Lacy, of Trinidad, are over on the La Plata, looking after the property of the widow's murdered husband.

Lamb, Rose
Rose Wrubel Lamb - Huerfano World - July 4, 2002 - Rose Wrubel Lamb, beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, went to her eternal rest on the first day of summer, June 21, 2002. She passed away peacefully in her sleep in the early morning hours after having struggled with declining health for many months. Rose was born in Akron, OH, on Nov. 17, 1916, to Sarah Rachel (Cohen) and Philip Wrubel. She attended Tilden High School in Brooklyn, NY, during the height of the Depression, and was the first person in her family to become a high school graduate. Rose's 50-year career as a law secretary began with a job working 6ฝ days a week, as the only secretary for 10 lawyers, for the impressive sum of $10 a week. In January 1943, Rose enlisted in the WAAC (Women's Army Auxiliary Corps), which became part of the regular Army as the WAC (Women's Army Corps) in August 1943. She shipped out to go over seas on the HMS Andes from Newport News, VA, on New Year's Day, 1944. Rose's unit, the 6718th WAC Headquarters Platoon, assigned to AAF/MTO (Army Air Forces, Mediterranean Theater of Operations), landed in Casablanca, French Morocco, went on to Tunis, Tunisia and finally was stationed in Caserta, Italy, until the end of the war. For the rest of her life, although she almost never wanted to read or talk or watch movies about war, Rose enjoyed keeping in touch with her army buddies through the 6718 Grapevine newsletter, personal visits and by attendance at many wonderful reunions. After the war, Rose lived between Miami Beach, FL, and Brooklyn, NY, traveling whenever she could, raising her daughter, visiting with family and friends, attending Broadway plays, and going to the beach every chance she got. In those days, going to the beach involved trying to get a suntan, collecting sea shells, swimming with tiny shore fish, and no ringing phones. Special vacation trips she took included a cross-country trip with her brother David in the late 40's, nightclubbing in Havana, Cuba (in pre-Fidel Castro days), and visiting the islands of St. Thomas, Puerto Rico, Bermuda and Hawaii. Rose retired to Miami Beach, FL, in 1973, and visited her family in Gardner, CO, almost every year from 1979 through 1993, when she moved to Walsenburg. She had been a resident of the Colorado State Veterans Nursing Home in Walsenburg since January 2000. Her main pleasures in the latter part of her life included spending time with her family, eating out, doing crossword puzzles, smoking Pall Malls and keeping everybody on their toes! Rose will be so sadly missed by all her friends and family. Preceded in death by her parents; brothers, David Wrubel and Nat (Sophia) Rubel; and sister, Pearl (Jack) Rieder. Survived by her daughter, Joyce H. Lamb; her grandchildren, Pearl and Ted Archuleta; her sister, Gloria W.

Lambert, Charles
Charles Lambert - Huerfano Herald – November 11, 1880 – Dreadful Death - Two Men Hurled into Eternity - While Coming Down The Mountain On A Push Car - It is our painful duty to record today one of the most frightful and unfortunate accidents it has ever been our province to relate. As our readers are aware the fall is about 228 feet to the mile from the top of the mountain to this place, a distance of fifteen miles. It has been the custom since the completion of the road to Summit for many of the section men, and others, when desiring to descend the mountain to call into service a push car and allow it to make its own time down the steep and circuitous grade often reaching the frightful velocity of 60 or 70 miles per hour. On Saturday afternoon the boss and four section men from Ojo started for this city on one of these cars. The car consists merely of a small square platform, with brake, fastened upon four wheels, its weight being about eight hundred pounds. They had proceeded to within about five miles of La Veta, and were running at a swift rate when they encountered a snowdrift, upsetting the car, pitching Charles Lambert and Jose Maria Martinez in front of it and scattering men and car in wild confusion. The fall was a terrible one, crushing and bruising the unfortunate men that received its force, and bending the heavy iron axles like withs. Charles Lambert was killed almost instantly, receiving internal injuries from which he never ... (unfinished) (speaking of Martinez) everything that anyone could suggest was done to alleviate his suffering, but after lingering until Sunday afternoon, his spirit passed to the Great Beyond. He was aged about 25 years, a Mexican by birth, and had only been employed as section hand since the middle of October. His mother and two brothers reside in Walsenburg and were notified in time to be with him in his last hours. He is spoken of as an intelligent, genial Mexican, of more then ordinary ability, a kind and dutiful son, an affectionate brother, and one who occupied a warm place in the hearts of numerous friends. Charles Lambert was a Polander by birth, aged about 45 or 50 years, and had only been employed in the section a month, coming from Pueblo to Ojo. He is spoken of by friends in high terms as a kind, genial man, one who scarcely ever drank, and never to excess. He was fond of music and spent many pleasant evenings at the store of Sager & Berry, playing the accordion for the amusement of the boys that congregate there. He was industrious and economical, and careful in the expenditure of his money. He leaves a brother and some children at Aurora, Ill., his wife having died several years before. Our Denver & Rio Grande did all that it was possible to do to alleviate the pain of the suffering one, and when death came tenderly and carefully cared for the remains. Both were prepared for their long and silent sleep in an appropriate manner, and forwarded to their respective friends. The accident is a sad and sorrowful one, harrowing in the extreme to the bereaved relatives, but under the circumstances it is fortunate that the entire crew were not instantly killed.

Lambert, J. J.
J. J. Lambert – Pueblo Indicator – January 8, 1916 – Noted Newspaper Man Dead – Captain J.J. Lambert, founder and publisher of the Chieftain for a great many years, died at his home in this city January 5 after a prolonged illness, and thus passed away one of the venturesome pioneer newspaper men of Colorado.

In 1903 he founded the Sacred Heart Orphanage and gave to it liberally of his wealth.

He had learned early in life to master himself and this valuable lesson was of great assistance to him in his enterprising career later on as a publisher and employer. He was always helpful and loyal to Pueblo and all who knew him well were his friends.

Mrs. Lamme is survived by her son James Lamme, Great Barrington, MA; three daughters, Judy Cochrane, Englewood, Jennifer Mandelson, Denver and Jane Ackerman, Redondo Beach, CA; a brother, John Lord, Pacific Grove, CA; and her mother, Mrs. Winifred Lord, Pacific Grove, CA; and five grandchildren. Her husband, Dr. James Lamme Jr. died in March of this year. At her request Mrs. Lamme was cremated. Service arrangements are pending. The family requests donations to the Huerfano Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. Patricia Lord Lamme - Huerfano World - November 16, 1989 - Patricia Lord Lamme What a woman! Brilliant, indefatigable, humorous. She was a combination of Joan of Arc, Auntie Mame, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Tallulah Bankhead. She was always on stage. The lights and curtain came up and Pat was front and center. Even when she was sick--as she often was these past two years--the performances were impressive; engaging, charming, witty. Great theatre, never phony. She always carried her audience with her and made them feel good, happy, alive. Her motto seemed to be, "Laugh, and the world laughs with you; weep, and you weep alone." There was always laughter around Pat, Her voice would swoop up and down; great emphasis here, a sly whisper there, sentences and paragraphs punctuated with chuckles and bawdy laughter. We all joined in, captivated by this incredible woman! She never did anything half-way. Every ounce of energy--and her energy seemed boundless--went into any undertaking on her long list of family and civic responsibilities. Remember the Lions' Club shows? Her work with the Historical Society? Those parties and weddings? Wow! A family woman, first and foremost, she and Jim Lamme raised and nurtured four exceptional children, sent them away from home to start their own families. They were always available to their children for encouragement and support. After Jim died last year her family rallied round and gave her the same kind of support, helped brighten the days and nights of loneliness she must have experienced. Probably, of her many accomplishments, she'd most like to be remembered as the excellent bridge player she was. At the bridge table she was inventive, clever, witty, ruthless, and had the instincts of a riverboat gambler. She relished cagey end-play, the unexpected lead, the crushing trump of her opponent's ace. She loved winning and won often; when she lost, she was always the gracious loser. Competitive, but never combative. As good a player as she was, she still showed respect and patience for her less skilled partners and opponents. She wouldn't like us saying how much we'll miss her, nor how well we'll remember her. "Don't get maudlin!", she'd have yelled, her eyes snapping and her brow suddenly furrowed. And then dissolve into a smile, the consummate actress. But gee, gosh, gerwillikers, Pat, we can't help it. We miss you so much! Her "Broth", John Lord.

Landwehr, Joan
Joan "Jo" Landwehr - Pueblo Chieftain - March 19, 1999 - Rice Funeral Service Claremore, Okla. Joan "Jo" Landwehr. s for Jo Landwehr will be at 1 p.m. today at The Rice Funeral Service, Chapel of the Garden. Father Paul Eichhoff will officiate. Born July 7, 1932, Jo was the daughter of Oren and Zona Jarrett Fletcher. She spent her childhood in Lincoln County, Colo. While still a young lady, she began to work. And with her very excellent abilities in organization and detail, she accomplished much in her career, working with Dana Corporation, Spartan and most recently Burgess-Norton. Jo and Samuel Hans Landwehr married in 1947, in Hugo, Colo. This same area that had been so familiar during her growing up years, would remain home for Jo as a young bride. Living on a farm, she helped her husband with the tasks of rural life as well as being a devoted wife and later a mother. When they moved to Pueblo, she worked at the Army Depot, the Pueblo School District and later the Dana Corporation. This is where she began the very intricate work as a machinist. When Mr. Landwehr died in 1977, Jo decided to move. With a sister in Albuquerque, Jo chose this as her new home. She worked for Spartan through these years. In 1984, Claremore, Okla., would become her new home. This move was made easy, because it allowed Jo to live near some of her children. Jo was a very special mother, always doing special things for her much loved family. When she retired, she chose to use her free time to help them, and just one of the ways she did that was to help with their household chores, like cleaning and ironing. Again, those detail skills came in handy. With her own home meticulously kept, why not also extend this expertise to those closest to her. Her motto was `charity begins at home. And truly it did for Jo. She also loved spending time with her grandchildren -- never able to do enough for them. Those special family members that survive are her three children, Samuel Hans Landwehr Jr. and his wife, Rojean of Claremore, Kathy Jo Lorens and her husband, Chris of Grand Lake, Colo., and Debra Jean Schellhorn and her husband, Jim of Claremore and four grandchildren, Jason Hans Vidmar and his wife, Leslie, of Longmont, Colo., Kirsten Jo Vidmar of Fort Collins, Colo., and James Paul Schellhorn and Aubrey Nicole Schellhorn of Claremore. She was preceded in death by a brother, Glen Fletcher- two sisters, Hazel Darnell and Violet Garrier- her husband- and her parents. Friends may remember Jo by contributing to the Alzheimer's Association National Headquarters, 919 N. Michigan Ave., Suite 1000, Chicago, Ill. 60611-9501.

Lane, Jennifer
Jennifer Lane - Pueblo Chieftain - November 17, 2006 - Bond set in death near Trinidad - Bond has been set for Destry York, 39, who is charged with second-degree murder in the August shooting death of Jennifer Lane. Chief Deputy District Attorney Paul Wiese asked that York's bond be set at $225,000 with $200,000 of that amount for the murder charge, plus $25,000 additional bond because York is charged with two felony offenses in Washington. York is wanted as a fugitive in Washington on charges of burglary and domestic violence, as well as other misdemeanor charges. Wiese is prosecuting the case because District Attorney Lee Hawke is ill. Defense attorney Lee Downs called the bond "oppressive and unnecessary," telling District Judge Claude Appel that the defendant left Washington to be near his parents, who live in the Ludlow area. "Oppressive or not, I'm setting the bond at $200,000," Appel said, agreeing to the additional $25,000 as well. The preliminary hearing for York has been reset to Dec. 22 to give the defense time to review a 50-page sheriff's department report and audio and video statements given by Lane's 3-year-old daughter, a witness to the shooting. Both the report and the recordings were handed over to the defense less than 24 hours before attorneys were due in court. "It's obviously not fair to get a 50-page report the night before," Appel said. Charges against York were filed Aug. 28. York's father, Dennis Talley, called the sheriff's department when his son arrived at his home covered in blood, with Lane's body in his vehicle. Lane, 24, died Aug. 21 of a gunshot wound to the head, which York at first told authorities was self-inflicted. He later said he shot the woman accidentally while trying to reload the gun for her. York remains in custody at the Las Animas County Detention Center, where he has been since his arrest Aug. 28.

The deceased was born in Springfield, Ill., September 8, 1847, and as a boy of 12 years, in 1859 removed with his parents, brothers and sisters to Sarpy County, Neb.

Larce, Presno
Presno Larce - Akron Weekly Pioneer Press - May 8, 1914 - Ludlow Fire Horror - Blamed on Militia and Mine Guards by Coroner's Jury - Men Under Command of Linderfelt and Hamrock Fired Strikers' Tent Colony, is Finding - Trinidad, Colo. - The jury conducting the coroner's inquest into the cause of the Ludlow disaster returned a verdict Saturday implicating the militia, mine guards, Maj. Patrick Hamrock and Lieut. K. E. Linderfelt. The jury was out one hour and returned two separate counts, the first of which is as follows: "Alfred Martin, member of the militia; Presno Larce, Louis Tikas, Frank Snyder, Frank Rubins, James Tyler, Frank Bartalato and Charles Costa came to their deaths by bullet wounds in the battle between the militiamen under Major Hamrock and Lieutenant Linderfelt and mine guards, on one side, and strikers on the other; said battle held in or about Ludlow on the twentieth day of April, 1914." The second count reads: "Cardelima Costa, Petra Valdez, Rogaro Pedregone, Clovine Pedregone, Lucy Costa, Oragio Costa, Elvira Valdez, Mary Valdez, Eulaila Valdez, Rodolso Valdez, Frank Petrucci, Lucy Petrucci and Joseph Petrucci came to their deaths by asphyxiation or fire, or both, caused by the burning of the tents of the Ludlow tent colony, and that fire on the tents was started by militiamen under Major Hamrock and Lieutenant Linderfelt or mine guards, or both, on the twentieth day of April, 1914. Signed Casimiro Cruz, Foreman. George Stracy, M. W. Babcock, A. W. Nash, F. J. Doveton, J. W. Bartlett." When asked if he would file complaints against Hamrock and Linderfelt on the findings of the coroner's inquest, J. J. Hendrick, district attorney, said he would do nothing until he learned what the people most closely interested in the outcome of the inquest were going to do. Routt County Sentinel - May 8, 1914 - Commission at Ludlow Camp - Cause of All Trouble Due to the Importation of Lawless and Ignorant Foreigners - Denver, May 2 - Absolute responsibility for the fatal battle of Ludlow Monday, April 20, was placed upon the Greeks of the strikers' colony at Ludlow by the military board consisting of Judge Advocate Major E. J. Boughton, Captains W. C. Danks and Phillip S. Van Cise of the Colorado National Guard. This commission was appointed April 25 by Adjutant General Chase with instructions to report on all the incidents of the battle, preceding and subsequent, and to make such report "without malice or favor." The officers examined under oath all officers and prisoners, "as many as possible of the soldiers, deputies, mine guards and townspeople of Ludlow and nearby coal camps." They made strenuous effort to obtain testimony of strikers but without success reporting that a personal request made upon Mr. Lawson and Mr. McLennon, strike leaders, in Denver, was answered in their presence by Mr. Hawkins, their attorney, "declining to give us any information upon the ground that our inquiry was not publicly conducted." The board found that the "remote cause of this as well as other battles, lies with the coal operators who established in an American industrial community a numerous class of ignorant, lawless and savage South European peasant. The underlying cause was the presence, near Ludlow, in daily contact of three discordant elements - strikers, soldiers and mine guards - all armed and fostering an increasing deadly hatred which sooner or later was bound to find some such expression. The immediate cause of the battle upon the soldiers by the Greek inhabitants of the tent colony who misinterpreted a movement of troops on a neighboring mine." Concerning Louis Tikas, the Greek leader who was killed in the battle, the report says: "During the evening Louis Tikas, James Filer and an unknown striker were taken prisoners. Lieutenant K. E. Linderfelt swung his Springfield rifle, breaking the stock over the head of Tikas." This incident followed a heated controversy between the lieutenant and the Greek. The report continues: "An attempt to hang Tikas went so far that a rope was produced and thrown over a telegraph pole. This lynching was prevented by Lieutenant Linderfelt, who turned Tikas over to a non-commissioned officer, whom he directed to be responsible for his life. Shortly afterward all three prisoners were killed by gunshot wounds. The only bullet found in his body was of a kind not used by the soldiers, although the two other wounds might have been made by Springfield rifle bullets of the uniformed men." Relative to the suffocation and the burning of two women and eleven children in the tent colony the report says: "Eleven children and two women were smothered to death in a small pit under one of the tents. None of them was hit by a bullet. The pit was not large enough to support the life of such a number for many hours. The construction of the pit made it a veritable deathtrap and its inmates probably died from suffocation before the tents were burned. When found there were no signs that the women and children had crowded into the entrance of the pit as would have been the case had they attempted to rush out when the tent above caught fire." The report states that the colony was looted by participants and spectators in the battle and that 15,000 rounds of ammunition were taken from the tent marked "headquarters of John Lawson." Only one person was killed or wounded in the colony by a gunshot. Frank Snyder, a 12-year-old boy, was shot in the head. His father stated that evening that his boy had gone outside the tent and was shot in the forehead while facing the arroya from which the strikers fire came." The colony was not swept by machine guns. This is proved by the fact the chicken houses, out houses, tent frames and posts still standing in the colony exhibit no bullet holes while the buildings and fences along the railroad track are riddled with bullet holes made by the machine gun." The board recommended that a general courtmartial be appointed to try all officers and enlisted men participating in the treatment and killing of prisoners and the burning and looting of the tent colony, that the legislature establish a permanent state constabulary so that the "young men of our national guard may be relieved from engaging in riot duty with a people numbering among them ferocious foreigners whose savagery in fight we find exemplified in the killing of Major Lester while under Red Cross protection and the maiming and mutilation of Privates Martin, Hockersmith and Chavez." The report continues: "We strongly urge the state and federal governments to proceed at once to the apprehension and punishment of all persons engaged as instigators or participants in the treasons, murders, arsons and other acts of outlawry in this state since the battle of Ludlow. We find that in apparent anticipation of a preparation for the battle of Ludlow, rifle pits were prepared by the strikers on the south side of their colony along the country roads and close to the tents and along the west side of the colony. These rifle pits show conclusively the careful and deliberate preparation of the strikers for the battle and their location along the front and side of the colony nearest to the militia camp nearest which they could not be defended against firing into the colony. Such care had the strikers themselves for their women and children, that these pits were located where any return of the fire from them would be drawn directly into the colony itself."

The men have been held for assault to kill. Larendo, who was shot six times, died of blood poisoning at a local hospital. Bayfield Blade – March 12, 1915 – Death Follows Fight – Sheriff Asks Murder Warrants Against Two Italians – Marescalo Larendo, Who Was Shot Six Times, Died of Blood Poisoning in Pueblo Hospital – Pueblo, Colo. – The death of Marescalo Larendo, an Italian, shot in a revolver battle on Hubson (Hudson?) avenue prompted Sheriff John McKee to ask for three warrants charging murder against Frank and Charles Bacino and Peppe Chiarolli. The men have been held for assault to kill. Larendo, who was shot six times, died of blood poisoning at a local hospital. Frank Bacino and two others were injured in the exchange of bullets, in which half a dozen Italians participated. Bacino has been in a hospital with two serious wounds. He will recover. Charles Bacino and Chiarolli are in jail, with three others accused of attacking them. The shooting is said to have resulted from a quarrel at the store of Bacino on First Street. Tony Marino, one of the prisoners, is said to have abused the storekeeper, and when the two factions met in the evening, hostilities started quickly. At the preliminary hearing it was charged that Marino was the first to fire. He shot at Bacino, and the others brought revolvers into action, discharging about fifteen bullets. The police arrested all the members of the two factions, some at the scene of the shooting and others when they had returned from the office of a doctor, where they had gone to have their wounds dressed.

Laughlin, associate editor of the Black Hawk Post, died yesterday at noon at his residence in Black Hawk, of some pulmonary disease, the exact nature of which we do not know. Mr. L. has resided in Colorado for a number of years, principally in Denver, where he has been well and favorably known as a printer and also a writer for the press. A year ago last spring he joined Mr. Merrick, of this office, in the enterprise, which resulted in the establishment of the first newspaper in the Black Hills, the Deadwood Pioneer, now a flourishing daily. Mr. L. remained but a short time in the hills, however, and was one of the founders of the Black Hawk Post during the campaign last fall, H. G. Bennett being its first editor. Mr. Laughlin was a man of fine ability in many respects, and a great favorite with 'the craft,' by whom his death will be earnestly regretted."

LaVoo, John Allan
John Allan LaVoo - Colorado Springs Gazette - September 30, 1989 - Survivors Reach Out to the Wall/Vietnam Memorial Replica Visits Pueblo - Pueblo - He was a Vietnam vet and proud of it - his black ball cap said as much; his wife wore an orange and blue sweat shirt, pledging her allegiance to the Denver Broncos. The only sign of mourning was a bouquet of flowers, which he held as he stood before an information table inside the cavernous Palace of Agriculture at the Colorado State Fairgrounds. "Leslie Williams," he said to a woman seated behind the table. She leafed through a large notebook. "Leslie?" she asked. "Leslie," he said, quietly. "Marines." Moments later the woman handed him a slip of paper; written in pencil were numbers for a panel, 17-W, and a line, 6. Rex Walker then turned to face The Wall. Later, he would use the word "intimidating" to describe it: 250 feet long, almost 7 feet tall, 74 interlocking panels set side by side. Most of all, there were the names of the people: 58,022 in all - 620 from Colorado, 58 from Pueblo, 47 from Colorado Springs; all of them now dead, missing in action or prisoners of war - a war named Vietnam. "Everything about this is intimidating," Walker would say. But now Walker was looking for a single name; a volunteer, Vietnam veteran Jerald Valdez from the Springs, led him to panel 17-W, traced his hand down to line six, then stopped. Walker drew closer, reached up and touched the name: Leslie W. Williams. Like so many others, he ran his fingers over the surface; it was only Plexiglas - smoked black to replicate the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. - but that didn't seem to matter. Walker was reaching for a memory. When he found it, his eyes welled; he set the flowers at the base of The Wall, and then he and his wife fell into an embrace. "I was dating his sister when he died in Vietnam," Walker said, after he and his wife had stepped back to the far end of the huge room. "I didn't know him real well, but I knew his sister and family real well. I tried comforting them, but they weren't ready for comforting right then. A few months later, I quit school and joined the Army." Joining the Army, he explained, "was still a pretty popular thing for kids. I was raised to believe it was a thing of glory. I didn't have any other information to base it on. My opinion hasn't changed on that." Walker entered the Army on Jan. 12, 1968; little less than a year later, on Dec. 13, 1968, he was in Vietnam. "Thirteen days after my 18th birthday," he said. "I did two tours and my father died. They pulled the sole surviving son rule and wouldn't let me go back." Walker came home May 1, 1970. He still lives in Pueblo - the home town of the late Leslie Williams. Walker now has three sons and two daughters. His eldest son registered for the draft last week; he maintained that his other two sons will register when their times come. "They've never been told war is glorious," Walker said. "They know it's not a thing of beauty. But they also know if you don't support your country, you don't belong here." Walker said he's worked "about 150 different jobs" since coming home from Vietnam. He finally learned he wasn't cut out to punch a time clock; now he drives a rig. It was while driving the road that he heard about the Vietnam Memorial Replica, which began touring the country two years ago. On three occasions, Walker drove his truck into some town only to find out the memorial had just been there. "You missed it," he would be told. "It was here two days ago." On Wednesday, when Walker returned from another trip, his wife greeted him with the news. The Pueblo Chapter of the American GI Forum had arranged for the memorial to come to the state fairgrounds, where it will remain through Sunday. The memorial had finally come to him. On Friday, Walker paid his last respects to a fellow soldier, a boy from the past. "It's just a last way to say goodbye." And, finally, there was time for comforting.

Leeka, Francis Edgar
Francis Edgar Leeka - Bayfield Blade - March 20, 1914 - Francis Edgar Leeka - The people of this town were horrified last Monday morning when the report was circulated that F. E. Leeka, residing just west of the corporate limits, had ended his life by taking poison. Neighbors and the doctor who rushed to the home found the report only too true. Mr. and Mrs. Leeka had both been laboring in the garden in the morning. The wife had gone in the house, and had been there about a quarter of an hour, when she returned to the garden and noted the absence of her husband; she went at once to the barn and there found the husband lying on a pile of hay and life was extinct. She gave the alarm and neighbors and Dr. Newland soon arrived. The doctor found a vial in the hay, which would hold about four ounces, and in it was left a few drops of cyanide potassium. The evidence of self destruction was conclusive. Mr. Leeka had been ill for thirteen years contracting the illness while working in the Durango smelter, and ever since had spells of melancholia or despondency, and in the past week it had affected him more than usually, and his rash act is attributed to no other cause. For a number of years past he has threatened to take his life, but his relatives did not think he ever meant it. Francis Edgar Leeka was born in Ohio on December 23, 1855, and died on March 16, 1915, at the age of 58 (59) years, 2 months and 23 days. From Ohio he removed with his parents to Indiana in early childhood and there he spent the days of his youth. He was married to Sarah C. Sisson in Pennsylvania on November 29, 1887. No children were ever born to this union. In 1890 Mr. and Mrs. Leeka came to Durango and have resided there and in the vicinity of Bayfield ever since. Besides the widow three brothers and a stepmother in the east survive him, while in this immediate vicinity are H. D. Brindle and Mrs. Fred Balcom, nephew and niece of Mrs. Leeka. Mrs. Balcom had resided with the couple from the time she was seven years old up to the time of her marriage. Mr. Leeka was a devoted husband, a kindly neighbor, a loyal friend and a consistent member of the M. E. church. He practiced his religion in his every day life. He was a member of the K. P. at Durango for twenty years, the W. O. W. and Maccabee orders, in the last two he carried insurance to the amount of $4,000.00, part payable to his wife and the other to Mrs. Balcom and her little son. Funeral services were conducted at the home by Rev. J. Q. Vermillion on Wednesday afternoon, and interment took place in the Bayfield cemetery immediately after. The funeral was largely attended. Bayfield Blade - March 20, 1914 - F. E. Sisson, Past Grand Chancellor of the K. P.'s of this state, and Mrs. Sisson arrived from Pueblo Tuesday evening to attend the funeral of Mr. Leeka. Mr. Sisson and Mrs. Leeka are brother and sister. They return home tomorrow. The Sissons were residents of Durango some twenty years ago. Bayfield Blade - March 20, 1914 - Coroner Hood and daughter, Miss Josie, spent a couple of days in Bayfield this week. Mr. Hood came over to investigate the Leeka death. Circumstances showing the cause of death were so plain that Mr. Hood did not think it necessary to hold an inquest. Bayfield Blade - March 20, 1914 - Local Happenings - Rev. J. Q. Vermillion came over from Pagosa Springs Tuesday to conduct the Leeka funeral the following day. Bayfield Blade - March 20, 1914 - Local Happenings - Mr. and Mrs. Fred Balcom were over from Durango to attend the funeral of their uncle, F. E. Leeka, on Wednesday. Bayfield Blade - March 20, 1914 - Local Happenings - Mrs. Sarah Leeka takes this means to thank all her neighbors and friends for their aid and sympathy in her great bereavement. Bayfield Blade - April 3, 1914 - In Memoriam - Died: F. E. Leeka, March 16, 1914, at Bayfield, Colorado. At a meeting of the M. E. church held at Bayfield, Colorado, Mrs. Mary J. Campbell, Messrs. J. M. Campbell, W. A. Bay, Hugh McGeary, E. W. Newland and J. E. Gibbs were appointed to draft resolutions of respect of our late brother F. E. Leeka, and the following resolutions were adopted by the committee: Whereas, God in His wisdom has called our brother F. E. Leeka from the activities of life to a home of eternal rest, be it Resolved, That in the death of brother Leeka the community in which he lived lost a useful and worthy citizen, our church, school and league a faithful officer and member, his wife and aged mother and kindred have met a loss we can not estimate, and in consolation we can only say "Earth has no sorrow that heaven can not heal." Resolved, That in respect to our brother these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of our Sunday school and league and a copy by given to the family, and also a copy be furnished to the Bayfield Blade for publication.

Lester, P. P.
P. P. Lester - 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. Del Norte San Juan Prospector - May 2, 1914 - Fourteen Dead At Coal Camps - Mine Guards Shot as the U.S. Troops Are Sent Into Colorado - Maj. P. P. Lester Slain - Was Attending to Duties as a Red Cross Officer and Wore a Badge - Denver, April 30 - Early this morning fourteen were known to have been killed in the fighting yesterday between militia, mine guards and strikers in the southern Colorado coal fields. Five may be added to this list when the battlefields at Walsenburg and Forbes are searched. Two of the six men wounded at Louisville in the northern field Monday night and Tuesday morning are not expected to live. Three state soldiers were wounded last night at Walsenburg. Six men were wounded in the morning attack at Forbes. The death list at Forbes is nine, and two more are reported killed. At Walsenburg five are known dead, with an unconfirmed report of eight dead. The fighting yesterday at Forbes (between Ludlow and Trinidad) commenced early in the morning and lasted until about 10:30 o'clock. After the tents were fired and the buildings were destroyed the strikers then retreated toward Trinidad. No state militia were engaged. Major P. P. Lester of the Hospital Corps was killed at Walsenburg yesterday afternoon while giving aid to a wounded soldier. About 200 militiamen engaged in the day's battle about the hogback west of Walsenburg with strikers. A truce was arranged at 8:30 last night after 56 hours of continuous fighting, in which the militiamen used machine guns they themselves constructed of heavy pipes. Fear was expressed in Trinidad that early morning attacks by strikers would be made on Sopris and Piedmont, Segundo, Morley and Gray Creek. Berwind and Tabasco are believed safe. State troops will not be moved from Ludlow until federal soldiers from Leavenworth arrive. United States troops will take control of the southern coal strike field of the state this morning. Their arrival, it is believed, will end the fighting between the state militia, mine guards and strikers, which cost fourteen lives yesterday and resulted in nine persons being wounded. Telluride Daily Journal - April 30, 1914 - Gov. Ammons Wants Stern Reprisals For Death Maj. Lester - Denver, April 30 - Governor Ammons this afternoon telegraphed to Secretary of War Garrison at Washington as follows: "Major P. P. Lester, an attach้ of the Hospital Corps of the National Guard of Colorado, was shot and killed by the strikers in the battle at Walsenburg while he was engaged in attending a wounded striker. At the time he was killed, Major Lester was wearing a Red Cross brassard, and the strikers were shooting from a distance of about 200 yards." Major Lester was shot through the chest during a charge made by Lieutenant Scotts and his dismounted cavalrymen. He died on the field. Lieutenant Scotts and Privates Wilmouth of Boulder and Miller of Longmont were wounded in this charge. In his message to Secretary Garrison this afternoon Governor Ammons indicated that he wants stern reprisals against the strikers for Major Lester's death. Bayfield Blade - April 30, 1914 - Trinidad, April 30 - In command of 300 troops belonging to the second squadron, Fifth cavalry, United States Army, Major W. A. Holbrook arrived in Trinidad at 8 o'clock this morning and assumed charge of the situation in the district. His command came direct from Ft. Leavenworth and was met at the Denver & Rio Grande station by city officials, members of the militia, commercial bodies and citizens. A body of strikers assembled at the depot and cheered the troops on their arrival as did also the citizens. Major Holbrook's first order was to establish camp. He said he would discuss conditions with the local officials and lay plans. After taking over the fair grounds which have been placed at his disposal, Major Holbrook ordered the train switched to the grounds and preparations for establishing a camp are immediately going forward. The soldiers arrived in Trinidad in a driving rainstorm and will be compelled to make camp on a field that has been soaked with a two-days' rain. Up to noon today there had been no communication between Major Holbook and the militia. The commander of the regulars has not made plans as yet for the establishment of troop posts. One troop of sixty men under the command of Capt. C. C. Smith, has been ordered to Walsenburg and will arrive there this afternoon. Battle at Walsenburg - Walsenburg, April 30 - One dead and three wounded is the known causality list in a six-hour battle here yesterday in which less than 100 militiamen attempted to dislodge an estimated force of 600 strikers entrenched in the hills adjacent to the town. Fighting stopped late yesterday when the troops were withdrawn upon orders, local officers state, received by Colonel Verdeckburg from Denver. The dead: Major P. H. Lester, member hospital corps, Walsenburg. The wounded: Lieutenant Scott, shot in head; Private Glen Miller, shot in face; Private G. L. Wilmot, shot in leg. Major Lester was struck, according to Captain Swope, who commanded the detail, within 150 yards of a line of rifle pits near the top of the hogback northeast of Walsenburg in which the strikers had taken their stand. Lieutenant Scott had been shot a few minutes previously. The firing was heavy when orders were received to withdraw and Major Lester's body was left on the field. The strikers are said to be still entrenched along the side of the l__ hill which forms a natural fortification. Reports that final effort will be made by strikers to take the town before the arrival of federal troops are current and the citizens are in a state of terror. Major Lester was in charge of the hospital and his men were with him when he was shot. He had just completed dressing the wound received by Private Miller when he was struck down. Bayfield Blade - April 30, 1914 - Dead Officer's Body Mutilated - Denver, April 30 - The killing of Major P. H. Lester of the hospital corps, Colorado National Guard, at Walsenburg yesterday, while it is alleged he was wearing the Red Cross badge and in the discharge of his duty in attempting to relieve the injury of others, was the subject of a report made to the war department at Washington today by Governor Ammons. In an investigation of the events surrounding his death is has been ordered by the governor that Colonel George M. Lee's first duty this morning was to get details. Reports of a post-mortem examination of his body made at Walsenburg last night are to the effect that two "dry" wounds were found on his body besides the one that caused his death, showing that he had been shot twice after he had fallen dead. It is said that his epaulets were stripped from him, his revolver was missing and it is believed he was robbed. Death Toll Last Night - Denver, April 30 - Colorado's seven months' industrial war has claimed a toll of at least nine human lives last night. This was the verified record at 6 o'clock last night, divided as follows: At Forbes, seven mine guards and one striker dead, with two other strikers believed to have been killed. At Walsenburg, one officer of the militia hospital corps killed, one officer and two enlisted men wounded. At Forbes, seven mine guards and one striker dead, with two other strikers believed to have been killed. The Forbes camp was a scene of desolation, practically all the mine buildings have been destroyed by fire. Here it was the work of only a few fleeting hours. It was about 5:30 that the strikers opened their attack in force. With the women and children of the camp barricaded in the mine slope the guards, under the personal direction of Superintendent Nichol, responded spiritedly. About 10 o'clock the firing ceased and the camp's assailants disappeared as mysteriously as they came some toward Trinidad and others over the hills in the direction of Berwind and Tabasco. According to Superintendent Nichol three strikers were seen to tumble down the hill side. With two troops of United States cavalry in the Fremont county fields and citizens, volunteers and militia on guard in Boulder county, state officials last night gave their attention to preparing for sudden outbreaks in Las Animas and Huerfano counties. The militia detachment relieved by federal soldiers in Fremont county was hastened to Colonel Verdeckburg's assistance in Walsenburg. A Truce Agreement - Denver, April 30 - Under a truce agreement which stopped the fighting at Walsenburg yesterday afternoon, approximately 600 strikers last night were to surrender their arms to seven militia officers appointed by Colonel Verdeckberg to receive them. The strikers were not taken into custody by the militia but will be subject to arrest and prosecution in the courts for the killing of Major P. H. Lester of the hospital corps. The suggested terms of surrender were transmitted to General Chase and sanctioned for their acceptance by Governor Ammons. Confirmation of the arrangements was given by General Chase to Colonel Verdeckburg at Walsenburg and to John McGregor. It was reliably stated that McGregor was reached by a telephone line strung to the strikers field of battle. Although strike leaders declined to give out any information as to their losses it was learned from an authentic source that they had suffered severely. At the time negotiations for the truce were opened they were fighting back the militia on three sides. Bayfield Blade - May 8, 1914 - Lester Shooting Felony, Declares Jury - Walsenburg - The coroner's jury which investigated the killing of Major P. P. Lester of the Colorado National Guard, who was killed during a true (truce?) April 29th in the battle between strikers and state soldiers, returned the following verdict: "Major Lester was killed by a gun-shot wound and internal hemorrhage. The killing was felonious and he was shot in the line of duty as a medical official and while wearing a red cross." Hugo Range Ledger - May 9, 1914 - Gen. Chase Asks Investigation - Denver - Making the direct charge that Maj. P. P. Lester, killed in the battle at Walsenburg, was deliberately murdered while wearing a Red Cross brassard and attending the wounded; that he was shot from the side on which the emblem appeared; that the bullet was fired from a distance of 200 yards, and that the strikers stripped the body of coat, hat, shoes, watch, sword and money which might have been in the pockets, General Chase has presented all his evidence in the case to Governor Ammons with the request that the alleged violation of all rules of civilized warfare be called to the attention of President Wilson. Routt County Sentinel - May 8, 1914 - Commission at Ludlow Camp - Cause of All Trouble Due to the Importation of Lawless and Ignorant Foreigners - Denver, May 2 - Absolute responsibility for the fatal battle of Ludlow Monday, April 20, was placed upon the Greeks of the strikers' colony at Ludlow by the military board consisting of Judge Advocate Major E. J. Boughton, Captains W. C. Danks and Phillip S. Van Cise of the Colorado National Guard. This commission was appointed April 25 by Adjutant General Chase with instructions to report on all the incidents of the battle, preceding and subsequent, and to make such report "without malice or favor." The officers examined under oath all officers and prisoners, "as many as possible of the soldiers, deputies, mine guards and townspeople of Ludlow and nearby coal camps." They made strenuous effort to obtain testimony of strikers but without success reporting that a personal request made upon Mr. Lawson and Mr. McLennon, strike leaders, in Denver, was answered in their presence by Mr. Hawkins, their attorney, "declining to give us any information upon the ground that our inquiry was not publicly conducted." The board found that the "remote cause of this as well as other battles, lies with the coal operators who established in an American industrial community a numerous class of ignorant, lawless and savage South European peasant. The underlying cause was the presence, near Ludlow, in daily contact of three discordant elements - strikers, soldiers and mine guards - all armed and fostering an increasing deadly hatred which sooner or later was bound to find some such expression. The immediate cause of the battle upon the soldiers by the Greek inhabitants of the tent colony who misinterpreted a movement of troops on a neighboring mine." Concerning Louis Tikas, the Greek leader who was killed in the battle, the report says: "During the evening Louis Tikas, James Filer (Tyler) and an unknown striker were taken prisoners. Lieutenant K. E. Linderfelt swung his Springfield rifle, breaking the stock over the head of Tikas." This incident followed a heated controversy between the lieutenant and the Greek. The report continues: "An attempt to hang Tikas went so far that a rope was produced and thrown over a telegraph pole. This lynching was prevented by Lieutenant Linderfelt, who turned Tikas over to a non-commissioned officer, whom he directed to be responsible for his life. Shortly afterward all three prisoners were killed by gunshot wounds. The only bullet found in his body was of a kind not used by the soldiers, although the two other wounds might have been made by Springfield rifle bullets of the uniformed men." Relative to the suffocation and the burning of two women and eleven children in the tent colony the report says: "Eleven children and two women were smothered to death in a small pit under one of the tents. None of them was hit by a bullet. The pit was not large enough to support the life of such a number for many hours. The construction of the pit made it a veritable deathtrap and its inmates probably died from suffocation before the tents were burned. When found there were no signs that the women and children had crowded into the entrance of the pit as would have been the case had they attempted to rush out when the tent above caught fire." The report states that the colony was looted by participants and spectators in the battle and that 15,000 rounds of ammunition were taken from the tent marked "headquarters of John Lawson." Only one person was killed or wounded in the colony by a gunshot. Frank Snyder, a 12-year-old boy, was shot in the head. His father stated that evening that his boy had gone outside the tent and was shot in the forehead while facing the arroya from which the strikers fire came." The colony was not swept by machine guns. This is proved by the fact the chicken houses, out houses, tent frames and posts still standing in the colony exhibit no bullet holes while the buildings and fences along the railroad track are riddled with bullet holes made by the machine gun." The board recommended that a general court-martial be appointed to try all officers and enlisted men participating in the treatment and killing of prisoners and the burning and looting of the tent colony, that the legislature establish a permanent state constabulary so that the "young men of our national guard may be relieved from engaging in riot duty with a people numbering among them ferocious foreigners whose savagery in fight we find exemplified in the killing of Major Lester while under Red Cross protection and the maiming and mutilation of Privates Martin, Hockersmith and Chavez." The report continues: "We strongly urge the state and federal governments to proceed at once to the apprehension and punishment of all persons engaged as instigators or participants in the treasons, murders, arsons and other acts of outlawry in this state since the battle of Ludlow. We find that in apparent anticipation of a preparation for the battle of Ludlow, rifle pits were prepared by the strikers on the south side of their colony along the country roads and close to the tents and along the west side of the colony. These rifle pits show conclusively the careful and deliberate preparation of the strikers for the battle and their location along the front and side of the colony nearest to the militia camp nearest which they could not be defended against firing into the colony. Such care had the strikers themselves for their women and children, that these pits were located where any return of the fire from them would be drawn directly into the colony itself." Eads Kiowa County Press - June 26, 1914 - Bloody Deed at Walsenburg; Violation of Flag of Truce - The handful of troops that responded to the order to return to the field when the Governor had recalled them had a busy week. How flags of truce and treaties were broken by labor leaders and their counsel makes a story that is appalling in revelation of moral turpitude. On Monday, April 27, 1914, while in command of the troops in Fremont County, the Governor telephones General Chase information relative to an attack on the McNalley mine at Walsenburg and directed the reinforcement of Troop E, which had been ordered on duty for the protection of life and property. Sixty men were sent from Ludlow and twenty from Denver, Captain F. F. Dowling being in command. Both Captains Dowling and Brooks reported during the day of April 28, 1914, that it would be impossible without heavy loss of life to dislodge the rioters from the region north and west of Walsenburg. On April 29, 1914, 125 additional men were sent from Ludlow under command of Colonel Verdeckberg. The troops were deployed into position, after the completion of the necessary patrolling had been done, a little after ten o'clock. Sharp firing then continued until one. General Chase in Denver received telephonic communication from the Governor and the strikers' attorney, Mr. Hawkins, to the effect that the strikers would surrender and turn in their arms. At 1:20 p.m. he had a telephonic conversation with Major Coan, representing the strikers, and demanded the immediate surrender of the insurrectionists. Major Coan refused to surrender and General Chase directed Colonel Verdeckburg to continue the firing. At 2 o'clock Mr. Hawkins, after conversation with Major Coan and McGregor, a leader of the strikers, agreed to an unconditional surrender of the arms. General Chase declined to hold his men. An agreement was later reached between the strikers and General Chase that the firing should cease for one hour, so that the word could be passed along the firing line of the strikers which was at least two and one-half miles long. It is the opinion of officers who were in a position to know, that McGregor and Coan were sincere in their efforts to consummate the surrender of the arms. There was continuous firing on the part of the strikers up to 8:30 p.m. This engagement at Walsenburg was the severest battle known in the history of industrial disturbances in the United States. Fewer than 200 soldiers engaged about 700 strikers, the latter being intrenched in well placed rifle pits and other kind of cover. The firing was from 250 to 1800 yards. The troops were handled in a masterly manner and it is remarkable that they suffered so little loss. Major Lester was killed about 2:15 p.m., after the surrender was effected. Lieutenant Lee L. Scott, 1st Infantry, Private Glenn Miller, Co. M, 1st Infantry, and Private Okey L. Wilmouth, Troop D, 1st Squadron of Cavalry, were wounded. The arrival of the Federal troops was advanced as the reason why the arms of the strikers were not turned over to Colonel Verdeckberg. But a few arms in the Walsenburg district have been turned over to the Federal authorities. Strikers Lose Twenty-Six Men By Firing on the Troops - Reports as to the killed and wounded suffered by the strikers is very indefinite. From the best obtainable advices it is believed that at least 26 were killed and over 100 wounded. Major Lester was shot immediately after applying a first aid dressing to Lieutenant Scott. He had just arisen and was looking through his field glasses at some men whom it was stated were in uniform on the firing line of the strikers. The post mortem examination exposed two wounds in the chest which were delivered after death. All of his private papers and money which were on his person were taken from him, and his leather puttee leggings were also stolen.

Lester, V. Nelson
V. Nelson Lester - Walsenburg World - March 14, 1912 - V. Nelson Lester was born in Cayua County, New York on Nov. 23, 1826, and died in La Veta, Colo., March 5, 1912. In 1838 his parents removed to Seneca County, Ohio, where he grew to manhood. While an instructor in the academy at Republic, Ohio he met Miss Lillis E. Bosworth, whom he married in 1856. They lived for ten years in Wayland, Michigan, then removed to Kansas where they lived until 1902. Advancing years made Mr. Lester sell his pleasant farm home; he removed to La Veta, Colorado, where he has since resided. A loving and devoted husband and father, the loss of his wife soon after he came here shadowed his last years, although his daughter, Mary H. Lester, kept his home for him and he enjoyed the frequent visits with his other children, Miss Lucy E. Lester, L.S. Lester and Dr. P.P. Lester of this city. A sterling patriot, he served his country in the Third Ohio Volunteers in 1846 and 1847, in the war with Mexico, and always in the no less necessary work of an intelligent and upright citizen for justice, sobriety, honesty, and progress in the government of his community and country, and never lost his interest in its welfare.

Charles was slightly wounded in the neck by a shot fired by the Pullman porter on the train. They both deny any knowledge of the hold up. Four posses are out hunting for accomplices of the dead man. Account of the Incident: Leadville - Fireman Paul Bockman of the Colorado Midland train which was held up early this morning near Divide, tonight told the story of his experience. He said that while cleaning the fire, he turned around and was looking down the barrels of two big six shooters. The robber told the engineer and himself to climb down, after which he marched them to the express door and commanded Bockman to order the express messenger to open that door. As there was no reply, the robber shouted, "Open that door or I'll blow up your car". The crack of a rifle was the only response. Seeing that the bandits' attention was engaged, said Bockman, I ducked under the car and ran around to the rear. Just then I heard Stewart say "Get on and hold him, I'm shot," and I got on the prostrate bandit and waited for the other members of the crew to come up. Neither Bockman nor Steele the conductor heard any other bandits although the Pullman conductor said he heard someone shouting from the embankment, come on and get away from here.

The truck then traveled another 220 feet and burst into flames in the southbound traffic land. Zupancic escaped from the vehicle by crawling out a window, Babcock said, but Lopez was trapped in the burning truck. Deputy coroner Clarence West pronounced him dead at 12:05 p.m. and an autopsy is scheduled to determine the exact cause of death. Babcock said a gas filter cap apparently broke during the crash, spilling gas and fueling the fire. He said several witnesses to the crash attempted to reach Lopez but couldn't approach the truck because of the flames. The Fountain Fire Department extinguished the blaze and Zupancic was transported to Penrose Hospital by a Fort Carson MAST helicopter.

Lovdjieff, Tereza
Tereza Divald Lovdjieff - Huerfano World - October 20, 1994 - Tereza Divald Lovdjieff Dies - Mrs. Tereza Divald Lovdjieff, age 91, died suddenly the evening of Tuesday, September 27th, in a nursing home in Englewood, Colorado. Her birth took place on March 15, 1903, in the Slavonian village of Petrijevci, Croatia, near the city of Osijek. She was the eldest of five surviving daughters among the eleven children born to Stjepan and Maria Divald. In her adolescence she often accompanied her father after he lost a leg in a factory accident in Osijek when they entered nearby forests to cut wood for sale in the village. At the time of her eighteenth birthday she was enroute alone from Yugoslavia to the southern Colorado coal mining camp of Tabasco, near Ludlow, Las Animas County. She arrived around the end of March 1921 at the home of Steve and Ana Fumich to help with the household work which included three Bulgarian boarders. She and Ana Jakovats Fumich were second cousins, but addressed the older woman as Teta (aunt), and the husband as Tetak (uncle). On May 12, 1921, she and the Bulgarian Chris Nenoff Lovdjieff were married at the Holy Trinity rectory in Trinidad. The marriage upset the Fumiches as well as respective families in the old country because of the Catholic and Orthodox difference. But neither Tereza nor Chris ever took church membership or attendance seriously; both were always wary about ecclesiastical politics, internal or external. Their first four children were born between 1922 and 1924, and were baptized in Orthodox churches in Pueblo, the same godfather for all, beloved Mladen (Big Mike) Parvanoff. The fifth child, Joan, born in 1934, was baptized at St. Mary's, Walsenburg, the same godfather. The childless Fumiches forgot all about the religious question and doted on all the children, consistently devoted and generous with all of them throughout the years. Mrs. Lovdjieff was the mother of Crist Lovdjieff, Mary (Ken) Stoecklin, Nick (Evelyn) Lovdjieff, Catherine Hartman, and Joan (Louis) Aldretti, and is survived by eleven grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.
