Mace, Isabel
Isabel Mace - Glenwood Post Independent - February 5, 2006 - Glenwood Springs, CO - At 10 a.m. on Jan. 30, 2006, in her 87th year, Isabel Mace, the silent giant of Toklat, died. This is her story. Isabel Mace's roots are generations deep in the southern Indiana community of Corydon, where she was born Isabel Pfrimmer Hays on Sept. 13, 1918. She enjoyed a well-grounded childhood of opportunity. Her father was an attorney and a dairy farmer who nightly read to her books of great literature. Her mother was a college-educated homemaker, a music teacher and a very early advocate of healthy living via natural, organic foods. Isabel followed her older brother, Clay Blaine Hays Jr. to Grinnell (he then went on to the University of Indiana for a law degree so he could join the family practice). Her younger brother, Samuel Pfrimmer Hays, graduated from Swarthmore with a B.A. in psychology and continued on to Harvard for a Ph.D. in history. Sam was the chairman of the department of history at the University of Pittsburgh from 1960-73. Family histories, legacies and connections were a significant part of Isabel's life. Isabel received the Golden Eaglet Award, the highest honor from the Girl Scouts of America, in 1937 for her outstanding efforts in community service and personal achievement. She earned her bachelor's degree in sociology from Grinnell College, Grinnell, Iowa, in 1941. At Grinnell, Isabel met her husband of 52 years, Stuart Aitken Mace, a native of Denver. They were married in 1941, shortly after their graduation and just weeks before Stuart's draft orders were issued. Isabel later reflected that she simply let fate take her by the hand. After the war they settled for a very short time in Boulder so that Stuart could resume his studies in plant genetics. Instead, with their growing family, they came to the Aspen community in January 1948 at the invitation of Aspen revivalists Walter and Elizabeth Paepcke. The Maces personified a self-reliant, post World War II generation that renounced the then contemporary American dream for simply life in a sleepy place. Along with her late husband, Isabel pioneered modern day Ashcroft, eventually bringing snow plows, telephone service, school buses and electricity. In a rare moment of regret, Isabel later proclaimed that "bringing the power line up this valley was the worse thing we ever did." They settled in the Castle Creek Valley among the weathered remains of the silver-mining ghost town of Ashcroft, 9,500 feet in elevation and 11 miles south of Aspen. Ashcroft was a six-mile dog-sled trip to the nearest pavement when the Maces built their home and business, named Toklat, there in 1948. Toklat evolved to become ground zero for community sentiment, among the most original and most enduring businesses of the ski era Aspen. The Maces' operations at Toklat were continually shaped to suit the changing times and their changing needs. In 1949, they established Toklat Husky Kennel and Toklat Wilderness Lodge, offering day-long and overnight dog-sledding trips into backcountry huts and accommodating up to 16 guests in their small lodge/home, also a licensed restaurant. In the mid-1950s the Toklat huskies became famous, capturing the imagination of a generation, when they starred on the popular show "Sergeant Preston of the Yukon."The Maces' independent way of life demanded a union of strong interdependence. Isabel offered the stern backbone of Toklat, holding it all together with a quiet efficiency. On any given day, it was not unusual for her to care for and feed five children, a small staff, a household of guests, a hundred huskies and a Hollywood film crew. A simple and resourceful woman, she ground her grains, "darned on darns" as June Kirkwood said, and learned to orchestrate a month's worth of meals on a shoestring without duplicating a menu. Few women of her day worked harder than Isabel Mace. Beginning in the early 1960s, first in Aspen and later in Ashcroft, the Maces opened a series of distinctive restaurants incorporating Isabel's wisdom of natural foods and Stuart's flare for unique flavors. The roast goose is remembered by legions. By definition, the Toklat meal was the antithesis of fast food. The Toklat restaurants were easily among the first to intentionally promote and offer organically grown foods. Isabel was a passionate teacher of her kitchen craft. A second-generation advocate, she endlessly practiced and preached her support of and belief in natural, organically grown foods. Serving food with a conscience, Isabel searched far and wide to obtain suitable ingredients, and in the process she loosely organized an early natural food cooperative involving family, friends and source suppliers. Isabel published a cookbook, "Recipe Requests from the Mace Kitchens," in 1994 and republished it in 1999. A family business, Toklat succeeded through ingenuity and effort. Over several decades, Isabel coordinated a cherished mail-order business offering among other things sourdough starter, exotic tea blends, baked grains and jams and jellies homemade from berries hand gathered in the area by family and staff. The Maces also collected and sold fine handmade crafts, many made by Stuart himself, or of other indigenous origin. Toklat's endlessly creative offerings evolved in the late 1970s into Toklat Gallery, a Mace business that continues today in Basalt. Between the late 1970s through the mid-1980s, Isabel contributed to the various efforts of the Malachite Small School and Farm in Gardner, an organization founded by the Mace family to promote sustainable agriculture methods. Isabel stood for all efforts to preserve and protect the special place in which she lived, as well as all wild places beyond. Additionally, she supported the movement toward establishing the Ashcroft ghost town as a national historic site. Less is still more. Small is still beautiful. Hers was a way of life, passionate with purpose, difficult by design and proud on principle. She will be remembered as a woman who worked tirelessly for her family, her home, her community and a better world with much contemplation and without complaint. Isabel Mace left her mark. She was a selfless and humble woman of strong conviction who never put herself forward for vanity or for praise. For much of her life, she worked quietly in the shadows of her legendary husband; however, she will be remembered as the giant upon whose shoulders he stood. Together they raised five fiercely independent children in rustic simplicity, and together they made an immeasurable impression on the community of Aspen and on the tens of thousands who joined them for a meal at their hanging tables. Isabel died on a beautiful snowy morning from a life lived long and well. To the end she continued to floss though she knew her time was limited, she cleared her plate until the very end, and she never forgot the purpose of food - to nourish the body, mind and soul. Stuart died in 1993. Their eldest son died in a mountain climbing accident in 1986. She is survived by her brother Sam, three sons, a daughter and six grandchildren. At Isabel's specific request there will be no memorial service. She will be cremated and her ashes will be spread by her children and grandchildren. Over the past several years, Isabel spent a great deal of time sharing stories about the extraordinary life of the Maces in the Castle Creek Valley. These stories will soon become a book. The desire to preserve history runs deep in Isabel's family. To assure that this type of tradition is continued and that other stories will also be preserved and published for future generations to share, please make a donation to the Isabel Mace Oral History Project at the Aspen Historical Society, 620 W. Bleeker, Aspen, CO 81611.

Mace, Stuart
Stewart Mace - Rocky Mountain News - August 07, 1993 - Aspen dog-sled operator Stuart Mace, who established a dog-sled operation in Aspen in 1948 and saw his dogs featured on the old television series Sergeant Preston of the Yukon, has died of cancer at age 74. Mr. Mace and his wife, Isabel, established the Toklat Lodge at nearby Ashcroft. His sled-dog operation, which numbered as many as 60 huskies at a time, was famous worldwide. The dogs' baying, or "singing," was recorded by CBS records and an Italian record company. French composer Darius Milhaud wrote a composition based on the musical tones he heard when Mace's dog "choir" performed. In addition to the Sergeant Preston series, his dogs appeared in the 3-D movie Those Sisters from Seattle, a musical about the rigors of life in the Yukon. Mace objected to the Hollywood sled dog term "mush." "You can get them started any way you want, but don't yell `mush,' " Mace said. "The dogs need sharp, crisp words to command their attention." A lifelong environmentalist, Mr. Mace was one of the founders of the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies. He also was a nature artist. In the 1970s, Mr. Mace, a native of Denver, and his family launched the Malachite Family Farm in Huerfano County. It acquired school status in 1983. Mr. Mace earned a degree in plant pathology at Grinnell College. He married Isabel in 1941. During World War II, Mr. Mace was assigned to the 10th Mountain Division and lived at Salida while Camp Hale was being built near Leadville. He volunteered for the dog-sled detachment and trained dog-sled teams for the planned invasion of Norway. After the war, he bought the puppies of the sled-dog unit and started his operation in Aspen. Mr. Mace is survived by four of his five sons, Lynn, Alan, Kent and Bruce. His son Greg was killed in a 1986 fall in the Maroon Bells in a mountain rescue accident. Memorial services were to be announced.

Madrid, Jose Miguel
Jose Miguel Madrid - The Chronicle-News - September 27, 1944 - Jose Miguel Madrid, one of the most highly esteemed and widely known pioneer citizens of Las Animas county and southern Colorado, former state senator and county superintendent of schools, prominent Catholic layman, passed away at 10:45 last night at his home 316 East Sixth Street, after a prolonged illness. He was 81 years old and a resident of this community most of his life. Honored as one of the most distinguished of pioneer citizens, a leader in educational activities, a public official and state legislator at periods of his life, Mr. Madrid was an acknowledged leader among Spanish-American people, and recognized as an authority on early day history of Trinidad and community. Long active as a Republican, Mr. Madrid had served four terms or eight years as county superintendent of schools, and twice had served in the state legislature, the first time in the lower house prior to 1904, the second time when he was elected state senator from Las Animas County in 1932, serving four years. As a small boy he had experienced excitement of long overland treks with freighters over the old Santa Fe Trail thru Willow Springs, N.M., to Puerto De Luna or Las Vegas, and thru the "Uncle Dick" Wooton tollgate to Trinidad and El Moro. As a youth he had learned the business of overland freighting and had met many of the best known of the early pioneer folk. His funeral will take place Friday morning at 9 o'clock from the Mullare Funeral Home followed at 9:30 by solemn Requiem High Mass at Holy Trinity Catholic church, and with burial in the family lot in the Catholic cemetery. Thursday evening at the drawing room at 7:30 there will be rosary by Knights of Columbus, at 8 o'clock by the Sagrada Corazon de Jesus, and at 8:30 by the Holy Trinity altar society, the Sagrada Familia and public. Mora County to what is now Madrid Plaza up the river, west of Trinidad, the plaza having been named for the Madrid family.  There he had lived on the Madrid ranch place. He attended country schools, and in 1879 the family had returned to the former home in Mora County, N. M. remaining ten years and returning to Madrid Plaza in 1889. During the ten years the family made their home in Mora County, Mr. Madrid had taught school and been elected one term as county superintendent of Colfax County, New Mexico. In 1904 being active and prominent in the Republican party of this county, he was elected county superintendent of schools and was re-elected three times.  Upon retiring from this office he engaged in the real estate and insurance business which continued to be his business until ill health forced retirement.  Serving one term as state senator 1932-1936 he retired from political activity and public office. For nine years he had served as an interpreter in the district court, many years ago. He was active and prominent in the affairs of Holy Trinity Catholic church, being a charter member of Holy Trinity Council No. 1972, Knight of Columbus of which he had been Grand Knight and for some years Chancellor.  He had also served the state council Knight of Columbus as State Advocate and State Secretary.  He was also a fourth degree member. Distinguished by a high sense of honor, courteous, kindly, Senator Madrid held the respect and affectionate regard of people all over Las Animas County, and as a member of the state legislature he was greatly esteemed as a gentleman of refinement and high character.  Few citizens of this community were more generally respected than he. Mr. Madrid perhaps had a wider acquaintance among the elder pioneer folk than any other man in the community.  A few years back he was one of the eleven pioneer citizens who had been residing in Los Animas County more than 60 years.  Of this eleven possibly the only one surviving is Theodore Abeyta. Senator Madrid had been in steadily declining health for some time.  About the time he retired as state senator his voice failed him.  He became less active in fraternal affairs and publicly, but continued as a most devout churchgoer, and his counsel and advice were frequently sought on matters of community interest. His memory had remained keen for historical facts.  Oftentimes he could, without resorting to records give authentic and accurate data regarding persons and events of the early Trinidad and community.  Of his many activities during his more than 70 years of residence he had been most distinguished for his service and contribution to education.  He lived at peace and in harmony with all men, said no ill word, and was ever a sturdily patriotic, law abiding American citizen and Christian gentleman. Deceased is survived by his wife, Mrs. Inez Madrid, five daughters and two sons.  Daughters are Mrs. Sofia Salazar of San Luis, Colo.; Mrs. Esther Morris of Cheyenne, Wyo.; Mrs. Eva Christy of Benton City, Wash.; Mrs. Corinne Paul of Denver, and Miss Rebecca Madrid of Trinidad.  Sons are Manuel Madrid of Phoenix, Ariz., and Benjamin of San Francisco, Calif. Two half brothers are Nemecio Baros of Denver and J. P. Baros of Los Angeles. Seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren also survive.

Madson, Carlyle C.
Carlyle C. Madson - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - November 3, 1961 - Four Die in Plane Crash Near Pueblo - Flying into a blinding snowstorm, four men crashed to their deaths in a light plane Thursday 17 miles southeast of Pueblo. The fast-moving storm cleared within a few hours to reveal the wreckage on the Butler Ranch. Another airman, Glenn L. Nash, spotted the shattered remains on a flight from Pueblo to Raton, N.M. Those killed were Carlyle C. Madson, 50, the pilot, and Henry J. Pannell, Jr., 30 both of San Diego, Calif.; Paul Miller, 38 (?), La Mesa, Calif., and Vernon L. Parrish, 32, Denver. Parrish headed an electronics firm with offices in Denver, Albuquerque and Salt Lake City. The others all were employes of a San Diego firm. First on the scene, according to Maj. Lawrence H. Reibscheid, information officer of Group III, Civil Air Patrol, were three CAP officers and two deputy sheriffs of Pueblo County. They arrived on the scene at about 4:30 p.m. The searchers were Lt. Col. W. A. Coe of Black Forest, deputy communications officer of the Colorado Wing CAP; 1st Lt. Joseph Girodano and 1st Lt. Elvina Smith of the Pueblo County (?) CAP, and deputy sheriffs Theodore Nickolett and M. C. Forester. The search was directed by Lt. Col. Herbert E. Hammond of Colorado Springs, commanding officer of Group III. Operations officer was Maj. Earl Cole of Manitou Springs, also of Group III. The wreckage was scattered over a quarter mile area of the flat prairie land north of the Huerfano River, Hammond said. The largest piece of wreckage could be put in the back of a pickup truck. One body was in the nose wreckage. Two others were 80 feet ahead of where the plane struck the ground. The fourth body was at the point of impact. Controllers at the Pueblo airport said the plane, bound from Denver to Albuquerque, N.M., radioed at 10:43 a.m. that it was returning to Pueblo after running into the blizzard. Efforts to communicate with the plane failed. Workmen on the Butler Ranch said they heard the roar of a plane, apparently at full throttle, about 10:45 a.m. but heard no crash. The plane did not burn. It dug a furrow about 8 inches deep before disintegrating. Sheriff officers said it appeared the plane struck in a pancake fashion. Reibscheid said that since Feb. 4 of this year, the CAP has participated in more than 25 search and rescue missions of this type.

Memorial service, 10 a.m. Monday at Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Rye. Greenhorn Valley News – December 6, 2002 – "Hero" Dies Tragically in Auto Accident – On Thanksgiving Day, November 28, at approximately ................... learned ...... Maes ... in Rye ... by a local newspaper carrier. Maes was well known and respected among valley teens, and their parents, for demonstrating strength and endurance and supporting others after two of his own children were killed instantly in an auto accident in 1993. He was "heroic" in the eyes of many. According to a report by Sgt. Colletti of the Pueblo County Sheriff's Department, Maes apparently lost control of his vehicle near 8263 Cuerna Verde, and slid off the left side of the road, causing it to roll onto the driver's side. Maes, the only occupant, was partially ejected and pronounced dead on the scene of massive head trauma. Time of the accident is unknown and full details are still under investigation. [Obituary continued as above]. Greenhorn Valley News – December 6, 2002 – Tribute to a Friend by Tony Marostica – "Pablo Maes was one of the grand treasures of this Valley." Pablo Maes was my friend. In the final story I submitted for Rye T-Bolts' 2002 football season a couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Pablo, although I didn't mention him by name. You might remember that I said I had a friend in the Valley, who was really more like a brother. I said that this friend was one of the most faithful of those I like to call the "T-Bolt Faithful." For those of you who weren't living in the Valley in 1993 need to know what happened here, and how those events were connected to Pablo Maes. Those who were here need to be reminded. On November 10, 1993, four Rye High School students were killed instantly in a head-on crash with a Rye Fire Department water truck on a Highway 165 curve. You've seen the spot, loved ones maintain a simple memorial there and purple and white balloons appear each November 10. It was a normal sunny morning and the kids were driving to school. Killed in the wreck were Miah Maes, Jason Kingen, Melanie Smith, and Nicole Maes. Nicole and Melanie were seniors and co-managers of the T-Bolt Football team and Miah wore #54 for the 'Bolts. He and Nicole were Pablo's children. The Cinderella story of the 1993 Rye Thunderbolt football team is forever connected to that awful accident. Unranked and unheralded, the 7-3 'Bolts lost their last game and barely made it to the post-season. A couple of days before their first playoff gave vs. highly regarded Erie, the tragedy struck. Some felt Rye shouldn't even attempt to play. But the decision was made to hold a memorial service on Friday and to Erie on Saturday. Purple and white balloons were released into a blue Rye sky. To the utter amazement of many thousands of readers who followed front page coverage in the Rocky Mountain News and Denver Post, the 1993 Rye Thunderbolts beat Erie by 18 points, beat powerhouse West Grand 14-7 a week later, and ultimately traveled to the West Slope to play Cedaredge for the state championship. During each game, Miah's vacant helmet kept a silent vigil on the 'Bolt sidelines and Pablo Maes became the 'Bolts most vocal and visible supporter. On an unforgettable Saturday afternoon, the Rye Thunderbolts beat Cedaredge 26 to 8 and were crowned Colorado State Champions. After the final horn, the entire football team surrounded Pablo and lifted him up on their shoulders. As far as I am concerned, that demonstration of love and pride was one of the finest moments in the history of high school sports. The events of 1993 defined the final years of Pablo's life. He and his wife Virginia donated money to add improvements to the RHS football stadium. They continued to attend games and cheer on the T-Bolts while remaining involved in the lives of the 1993 team members. When my own son Jacob, who caught passes and kicked extra points for the championship team, returned from a two-year church mission, Pablo was there at the airport to welcome him back home. When another team member, my son-in-law Erik Himmelberg and my daughter Amy (who was a 1993 T-Bolt cheerleader) had their babies, Pablo and Virginia appeared bearing gifts. He was respected here and he loved all of his neighbors in return. Pablo touched the lives of many people with his jovial banter and unselfish manner. He often told me that the Greenhorn Valley and his humble home overlooking Lake Beckwith was paradise and here he felt like a king. Yet another tragic automobile accident in this valley has claimed Pablo's life. It is a bitter irony. Pablo my friend, we will miss you.

Mahony, D. A.
D. A. Mahony – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 20, 1879 – Obituary – Yesterday's mail brought Dubuque papers containing particulars of the death of Hon. D. A. Mahony, of that city. The proprietor of this paper took his first lessons in the art of printing under Mr. Mahony's tutelage in the Herald office of that city in 1851. Mr. Mahony was one of God's noble-men – an honest man – he was remarkably talented – a brilliant and vigorous writer, having an excellent command of language in which to express his thoughts. He was a profound thinker, a splendid logician, and a man of fine impulses, being generous and kind to those whom he considered his friends, and seldom spoke disparagingly of any one. He was firm in his political opinions, and when his mind had become set upon a principle it was like adamant – it took a power of argument to convince him of his error. He was honest in his convictions, and his soul was full of patriotism for the perpetuation of the republic which he so fondly loved. But his work in this land of trouble is over, and may his virtues and nobleness of heart be responsive to retain the memory of a brilliant man who has gone to that home from whence no traveler returns.

Mrs. Tilton testified before the coroner that she heard some one knock at the door, and the deceased said "Charles Bennett, come in" to which he replied "You have been talking about me." She denied it, and a moment after the door burst open and Cynthia Malcom fell at Mrs. Tilton's feet, shot through the head with a pistol, and died in a few minutes. Bennett was arrested on the street, and admitted that he had shot the girl. He had in his pocket at the time of his arrest, the pistol with which he shot her.

Mall, John
John S. Mall - Huerfano World - June 1, 1989 - Mass of Christian Burial was Wednesday from St. Mary Church in Walsenburg for John S. Mall, longtime educator and Superintendent of Re-1 Schools for 16 years. Mr. Mall, 79, died Sunday, May 28, 1989, in Huerfano County Hospital following an apparent heart attack at Triple G Truck Stop outside La Veta. Born in Leadville Apr. 24, 1910, he was an infant when his parents moved to New Castle. During the influenza epidemic in 1918, his parents and grandmother died, leaving four young children. John Mall, along with his brother, was placed in St. Vincent's Orphanage in Denver. He attended and graduated from Regis High School and Regis College with the highest academic honors. He worked his way through Regis with several jobs including janitorial. During the depression, he worked for the CB&Q Railroad and later taught school in a one room house south of Wiggins. He married the former Laura Kennish of Weldona Jan. 29, 1934, and continued his education at Colorado State College of Education in Greeley where he earned his masters degree. He taught in Orchard and Buckingham. During World War II, he worked at construction. In 1945, he went to Weldona, where he later was named Superintendent until 1952 when he moved to Walsenburg to become assistant principal of the high school under Professor S.M. Andrews. Following Andrews' death, he became principal until he was named Superintendent of Re-1 School District in 1954. Mr. Mall took an early retirement in 1979 but remained as "acting Superintendent" for brief periods between school administrations. He could still be seen grooming the high school football field and other chores that reflected his care and concern for students of Re-1. Just before his death, he presented Wilma Nugent, high school cook for 27 years, the John S. Mall Friend of Education award at the school. In 1976 when Re-1 built a new high school in Walsenburg, the Board of Education paid tribute by naming the new facility after him. Tuesday, in a Pueblo Chieftain interview, his youngest son, Louis, remembered his father; "Some men measure their success by their wealth but my father was not a rich man. He was never paid very much for what he did. He got wealth from the love that the community and the family had for him, and his love to the family and the kids." In addition to his school district activities, Mr. Mall was an active Rotarian for several years, a member of the Huerfano County Chamber of Commerce and on the boards of St. Mary Credit Union and Huerfano/Las Animas County Planning. Survivors include seven children, Thomas Mall, Roanoke, VA; Louis Mall, Westport, CN; Clara Donohoe, Fort Collins; Theresa Millarkey, Locust Valley, NY; Jeanette Fischer, New York City, NY, Kathy Russell, Brick, NJ, and Lorraine Haslee, Minturn; a brother, Frank Joseph Mall, Denver, 17 grandchildren and one great-grandchild and six nieces and nephews he and his wife, who died in 1967, reared.

Manzanares, Jesus M.
Jesus Maria Manzanares - Independent - April 7, 1933 - J. M. Manzanares, 103 Years Old, Dies at Home In City Yesterday - Oldest Man in Huerfano County Dies at Home of His Daughter; Lives Colorful Life of Early Pioneer of Untamed West, was born on January 6, 1830. Came to Colorado in 1853; to Huerfano County in 1869; Settled at Cucharas and Grew With Huerfano County. Huerfano County's Grand Old Man is Dead! Jesus Maria Manzanares, the oldest man in Huerfano County, died at the age of 103 Friday morning at his home on East Sixth Street. His death marks the passing of one of the earliest pioneers of Colorado, and one of the last historical figures in this county. Manzanares was born January 6, 1830, in a little adobe house at Ojo Caliente, N.M., and during his span of life watched the development of the railroad, telephone, electricity, airplanes, radio, and all the other wonders of the present world, which have entered into the use of humans in the last century. He stated at the celebration of his 100th birthday, which was held in this city January 6, 1930, that the possibilities of the future stunned him. When asked at that time to what he attributed his longevity he stated that it was because he thought "living was too much fun to stop" and that long life was the nature of his family, for his mother lives to be 109 years of age. He came to Colorado with his parents in 1853, settling in Costillo County. They lived there and took part in the last serious outbreak of the Indians against the Mexican people in 1855. It was at this time that the Indians kidnapped two Mexican boys. He came to Huerfano County in 1869, settling at Cucharas Junction, then the proudest trading post in eastern Huerfano County. His parents left him at this time and settled at Redwing. He was married before he came to Huerfano County, having become wed to Maria Rita Tafoya in 1865, from which wedlock six children were born, all with the exception of one living at the present time. During the early years he made several trips "bull whacking" between St. Louis, Kansas and Santa Fe, all the freight being brought overland by way of Denver. When the railroad pushed thru to Cucharas Junction in 1876, Manzanares joined with others in platting pretentious town sites, and brick walls started to rise, but Cucharas dwindled and became a ghost town when the water supply gave out. In the early times wolf packs ravished the Cucharas canon district where he ran his sheep, and often he would hunt buffalo on the Apishipa east of Trinidad in the early days. He killed his last wolf 23 years ago. Manzanares came to Walsenburg eight years ago to make his home with his daughter. His wife died 10 years ago at the age of 72. For several terms Manzanares served as Justice of the Peace and constable at Cucharas, and took an active part during all of his years in Huerfano County.

Marino, Michael
Michael Marino – Durango Wage Earner – May 10, 1906 – Pueblo, May 8. – This city was the scene today of a rather desperate riot in which one man was killed and several injured.  It was the result of labor troubles at the Pueblo smelter, and resulted, at 6 o'clock this morning, in the liveliest sort of rioting.  It seems that upon being refused higher pay and shorter hours the smelter men struck and left their work.  The smelter authorities desired the strikers to leave the vicinity, but as they did not go peacefully the police were called and ordered to disperse the men.  Then trouble immediately followed.  The strikers, assisted by their wives, attacked the officers, in which they tugged freely, and a general fight ensued.  One striker was instantly shot to death by a score of deputies and a number of others were badly injured by being clubbed.  Several deputies were struck with stones and clubs from the hands of the women and were seriously hurt, notably, T. J. Burrows and W. H. Loar.  When Sheriff McMillan realized that the assault threatened the lives of his men he ordered them to shoot to kill.  A volley was fired and the rioters immediately dispersed, leaving on the field of battle Michael Marino, a man of 26, who was found to be dead from a bullet that had entered the breast.  More trouble is expected.

Bessie Lenora Marks - Walsenburg World - July 1903 - Mrs. Arthur M. Marks brought the remains of her infant child from Pueblo to Gardner last Friday and had it laid by the side of its father in the Gardner cemetery. It was very sad to see the widowed mother come unattended except by her sister-in-law to bury her babe. For some cause the letter she wrote to L. Z. Watkins several days previous failed to reach him until she was here with the corps. L. Z. Watkins, T. M. Hudson and Gus Addington then repaired to the cemetery and dug the grave.

Antonio Marlin – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – July 16, 1874 – Indians on the War Path on our Southern Border – Many Persons Killed, and Much Stock Stolen – Troops and Citizens in Pursuit – [Special to the Chieftain] – Trinidad, July 8. – On Sunday last rumors reached this city that a party of Comanche, Cheyenne and Kiowa Indians were on the war path, and were depredating and murdering white men near Cimarron, on the Dry Cimarron and on different tributaries of the Cimarron.  These rumors have been proven well founded, and it is a painful certainty that this section of country has been raided by from three to five hundred savages, mounted and well armed.  The following condensed from an extra Chronicle of Wednesday evening, is the latest in regard to the outbreak which has been received here.  The first depredations of the Indians were perpetrated, so far as heard from, on Crow creek, a tributary of the Cimarron.  The first man killed of which we have information was Charles A. Buthe, a white man, who lived about twelve miles north of Cimarron.  We hear also of numerous depredations and the murdering of four Mexicans in this vicinity, that is in the vicinity of Cimarron.  A letter from Emery's on the Dry Cimarron, dated July 6th, states that the savages were stealing stock and murdering herdsman on the Sierra Frande and Corampa creek, and that a Mexican train was attacked on the Cimarron and that a party of Indians were seen with the scalps of white men at their belts.  The settlers were arming and preparing for battle.  Mr. Dodds reports Romero's wool train captured on the Dry Cimarron.  Conn and Roberts, herdsmen on the Corampa, are reported missing.  Two white men and one Mexican were killed at the Emery Ranche, six or seven miles above, Antonio Marlin killed at his ranch, one Mexican killed at Fisher's and one white man at Cavaness'.  He also states that there was heavy fighting with the Indians at Dry Cimarron, on Tuesday evening.  Parties from the front say that twelve or fifteen men have been killed, and a large amount of stock ran off.  One Mexican was killed by having his arms cut off, tied to a wagon and left to bleed to death.  This afternoon a party of armed men numbering about thirty, commanded by Sheriff Thompson, left for the front.  Acting Governor Jenkins has been informed of the outbreak and is doing all in his power to protect the lives and property of citizens.  Troops are moving from Garland, Fort Lyon and Fort Union and a party of thirty armed men, under Casmero Barela, are also in pursuit of the savages.  Latest – Two scouts just in from the Dry Cimarron, report the Indians moving towards Texas and the Indian Territory and that four more men have been killed.

Marsh, Sarah Emeline
Sarah Emeline Richardson Marsh - Times - October 18, 1928 - Sarah Emeline Richardson Marsh, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Richardson, was born near McLeansboro, Ill., March 17, 1856. She was converted at the age of 16 years, being one of the first to profess faith in Christ and united with the Union Missionary Baptist Church after it was organized and the house of worship erected. At the time of her death, she was the eldest living member of the church she loved and had lived in from her girlhood days. She lived to see the first building fill its mission and a second one come and go, and the third house erected on the spot which was sacred to her memory. On September 1, 1880, she was united in marriage to M. T. Marsh of Hamilton County, Illinois, Rev. C. Y. Allen performing the ceremony. To this union, five children were born, Mrs. Lora Mathis of McLeansboro; F. M. Marsh of Chicago; W. Il and R. F. Marsh of Alamosa, Colorado; and Mrs. Anna Kornmeyer of LaVeta, Colorado, all of whom are living. The great pleasure of life to her was the privilege of living for others. She always found time and a way to minister, not only to her own but to all those who were near her. She was a great Bible student and the burden of her heart and prayer of her life was that she might live in such a way that her own family and others who knew her might follow in the Christian service. She moved from Hamilton County with her husband to La Veta, Colorado in 1915, where they have made their home since that time. Last fall, Sister Marsh contracted typhoid fever, from the effect of which she never recovered, and in April of this year, she suffered an attack of influenza and pneumonia. After some weeks of lingering illness, she passed into the life beyond from her home in La Veta, Colorado, on June 1, 1928. Age 72 years, 2 months, 14 days. She leaves to mourn their loss besides the above named husband and children, two brothers, Tilman Richardson of Belleville, Ill., and James Richardson of McLeansboro, 16 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and many relatives and friends. Funeral services were conducted at the Union Baptist Church Wednesday, June 6, by Rev. John B. Maulding.

The cause of Mr. Martin's death was dropsy, from which he has been ailing since last June. He went to Pueblo three weeks ago in hopes that his health might be improved from treatment in Clark's sanitarium. He died on Wednesday and the remains were yesterday sent to Leadville for interment. C. H. Martin was born in 1851 in Kalamazoo, Mich. His parents both died when he was still a child and the boy from that time had to make his own living. Through his own efforts he obtained an education in the schools of Constantine, Mich., and for a number of years taught in that state and in Kansas. At the age of twenty-seven he came to Colorado and settled in Leadville where he has lived continuously for the past thirty-three years. Mr. Martin was for the most part connected with the smelters of Leadville. He was first employed by the late Gov. Grant, who in the early days was operating a smelter in this district. He later served as foreman for the American Smelting and Refining company until it closed in 1893. The old pioneer was a man of steady and domestic habits and sought his pleasure in life with his wife and family. Since the time he married Lydia McDonald in 1887, he was never known to spend an evening out of the company either of his wife or his daughters. The deceased is survived by his wife and two daughters, Helen and Lucile. Both are graduates of the Leadville High school and at present Helen is attending the State university at Boulder. He also leaves behind two sisters, Helen Martin, of Denver and Mrs. F. E. Austin, of Beresford, S. D.; and a brother, William Martin, of Soldier, Idaho. Mr. Martin was a member of the Congregational church. The funeral will take place from the Presbyterian church on Sunday afternoon. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – November 27, 1911 – Around the City As Seen By Our Reporters on Their Daily Rounds – From the Herald Democrat and the Evening Chronicle – From Monday's Daily – Funeral of the Late C. H. Martin – Rev. David McMartin of the Presbyterian church yesterday conducted services over the remains of the late C. H. Martin. The funeral took place from the church of which Rev. McMartin is pastor. The services were attended by a large number of friends of the deceased. The persons who had been associated with Mr. Martin during the time he was employed at the smelter were present in a body to pay their last respects to their friend who will work with them no more. A large number of flowers were received in token of the sympathy for the survivors of the deceased and respect for the old pioneer who passed away. Rev. McMartin spoke of the consolation that is to be drawn from the belief that there is another world to which dear ones pass to wait for those they have left behind. This thought, he said, is especially consoling to the bereaved ones when they possess the knowledge that the departed person has led a Christian life, such as Mr. Martin's. The choir, consisting of Mrs. Robertson, Miss Meyers, Mr. Jennings and Mr. Volkeri, sang "Abide With Me." Mrs. Robertson sang a solo, "Face to Face." The remains were interred in the G. A. R. plot of Evergreen cemetery.

Martin, Jennie
Jennie Martin - Colorado Weekly Chieftain - June 8, 1876 - Shot By A Negro - Tragic Death of Miss Jennie Martin - In our issue of Sunday morning we noticed the killing at Cheyenne of Miss Jennie Martin, daughter of Wm. Martin, formerly of South Pueblo. The facts of this terrible affair are given as condensed from the Cheyenne Sun: Miss Jennie Martin was the name of the victim. She and a friend, a Miss Montgomery, left home to attend a musical rehearsal at the Catholic Church. They were accompanied by a little girl, daughter of George B. Stimpson, brother-in-law of Miss Martin. With the child between them the young ladies sauntered slowly down the street. There were a good many people on the street, and the girls were jostled at every step by pedestrians. Just after turning a corner the report of a pistol startled everybody, and Miss Martin fell to the sidewalk, clutching in her fall the hand of the child and pulling the latter down with her. The bullet had entered the right temple and lodged in the brain. The body was removed to Mr. Stimpson's house. Miss Montgomery remembered that some boys, white and black, were playing: romping, and running at the corner when the party came up, and that they ran away when the pistol-shot was fired. The police hunted up the juveniles, and each and every one testified that one of their number, a Negro lad named James Butler, fired the shot which killed Miss Martin. The murderer is only twelve years of age, and has been known as a "hoodlum". He had been heard to make the threat, some days previous, that he would "fix that girl" (meaning Miss Martin), because she was the means of his being chastised for some misconduct at school. The boy was lodged in jail. The victim of his vengeance was in her sixteenth year, and had a bright mind and a beautiful face.

He married Victoria E. Medina July 26, 1969 in Gardner.

Mass of Christian Burial was Saturday from Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Chama. Burial was in Chama Cemetery. Boies Almont was in charge of arrangements. A special fund has been set up for the Martinez family at the First National Bank in Walsenburg. Huerfano World - October 25, 1990 - He was just good old Gene - Editor's Note: The following, from the Oct. 18 edition of The Christian Science Monitor, was written by Gardnerite Hallett Stomboh. It is a remembrance of the late Gene Martinez of the Chama/Redwing area who died a year ago in an auto mishap. His wife, Vicki still lives in Chama and his sisters, Pauline Valdez and Dorothy Ontiverras, live in the Gardner area. While we stood by the truck waiting for Zeke to show up so we could get to work cutting trees, Genaro Martinez poured a can of SAE 30 motor oil on his boots, then rubbed it in with his thick fingers. ''I bet you put that stuff on your hair too," I joked. He grabbed me by the hood of my parka and pretended to pour the can down my neck. "You got much to live for," he said. "Keep going." Inside Gene's house, behind us, his wife was getting the coffee bucket ready. It was a solid ranch house with an addition built on. Down the road was the agricultural church built by the settlers at Chama and repaired by Gene's father. I had been in Gene's house for a first morning cup of coffee, and his wife called me respectfully by my first name - you know, like she knew all the good things you ever did and those had been discussed a hundred times by the family. But it was my first time in that house. Gene was giving me three days work around Christmas because he heard I could use a few extra dollars; a Christmas tree cutter, junk-car dealer, mechanic when he could be, he treated me better than royalty - like one of a very old Hispanic family in the valley. ''Sit there, Hallett." His wife pointed to a quilt-covered armchair. "Gene's on the phone to his dealer in Denver." The third man for the job, Zeke, showed up in his new truck and cowboy hat. Zeke would be the tree-climber and sawer. Old Gene hated to take a baby tree at the roots, for a disposable Christmas tree, so he had Zeke climb for the tops of big trees so the tree would recover and come back. Zeke Ontiverras brought his own coffee in a silver thermos, fancy as his new truck. Zeke had come up from Mexico a few years back; he married one of Gene's sisters. Now he was more American than we were, in this valley of far America where few people were locked into network programming, by reasons of the mountains, or up on the latest in anything. But Zeke must be checking it all out somewhere, for he was state of the art "near America," down to his designer jeans. "Brother," said Gene rubbing in the oil on the seams of his K-Mart boots, "Zeke thinks they're going to film, him again today.'' He gave Zeke a hearty backslap. Out there in the national forest, Zeke was strong at hauling, fast at climbing, a thief at sawing, and had brought with him from Old Mexico that graceful pace of work that eludes ordinary men like myself, who run at work and yet get told: "You got two speeds, boy. Slow and stop." And standing under a tree Zeke was 50 feet up in, my gloves dangling idly, Gene moved me: "Out of the way now. You got a lot to live for, boy.'' On the way home, we stopped with our load of trees at a highway joint. It was dark and I could see the green load chained and roped on the truck under the parking lot neons, a phenomenal day's work. After eating, Gene rolled out his wreathmaking money and bought us all supper. "Don't," Zeke cautioned as I reached for my billfold, as if he thought it were a six-gun. ''Don't. Gene likes you. This is his party." Zeke knew the etiquette of these old families. How was I to make it up? I felt both of them had done double work to mine. They could have brought along any number of cousins with names that were more related to the old southern families up to the Arkansas River - which they used to call the color line in Colorado - and they weren't Anglo, like mine. Work was scarce this time of year. Home, an hour later, there was more hospitality. A second supper was waiting and the candles set like a fiesta. I was shown a chair and a place. Zeke went home to his wife. Gene washed up and called his dealer in Denver. I heard him say he could make the quota they needed. He said, ''Should be up there around 4 a.m." "He's driving up tonight?" I said to his wife. "I'll go with him. I won't charge." Immediately feeling mention of money was a strange breach of friendship. His wife smiled gracefully. ''The boys like to go up with him," meaning Gene's oldest boys 13 and 15, being a Friday night out of school. There were seven kids. The littlest girl climbed in my lap, assuming I must be some relation. How could such a child with cut black bangs over beautiful eyes be related to oil-booted old Gene with his hands that needed size 12 gloves and stone face that looked like it was carved out of the outcroppings of the harsh valley? This man seemed to attract a fiesta of people wherever he went. Now I like to think of Gene standing on the porch of his place that night, snow dusting the junk cars, wood pile, and the day's work of trees going to cheer a hundred people in the city, rolling off some more bills proudly but silently to me, for pay. "Thanks, Gene," I said sincerely, knowing now I could buy my own daughter the thing she wanted most for Christmas. He seemed embarrassed at my sincerity. I should have joked him on something. He just said, "Drive safely home, boy. You got a lot to live for," rubbing his tired neck. I remembered those words after he got into a car wreck a year later and I heard the news that he didn't make it. I remembered those words as I stood outside the church his grandfather repaired and I couldn't get a seat in the carved pews because so many people had come from miles around. Many of them had names that weren't the old settled ones in Huerfano Valley. To everyone he was just good Gene.

J. Ralph Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - June 02, 2001 - J. Ralph Martinez, widely known as Ralph, died at Parkview Medical Center on May 31, 2001. Death came following recent complications emanating from longtime severe rheumatoid arthritis. Mr. Martinez, age 71, was born Oct. 9, 1929, in Walsenburg, Colo. His parents were the late Claudio and Maclovia (Padilla) Martinez, both early-day residents of Southern Colorado. Ralph was one of three brothers born to his parents, the eldest of whom was Macario Martinez who died two years ago. Ralph is survived by his beloved wife, Frieda, with whom he celebrated 50 years of holy matrimony on Aug. 19, 2000. He is also survived by his loving daughter, Janet Martinez Rodriguez; and son-in-law, Steve Rodriguez. Also surviving are his beloved granddaughter, Jennifer; and her husband, Charles Klipfel; and grandsons, Gabriel and Diego Rodriguez. Lastly, he leaves his precious great-granddaughter, Macayla Klipfel. Ralph also leaves his last surviving brother, Claudio M. (Masa) Martinez. Ralph attended St. Mary's School in Walsenburg, Colo., prior to coming to Pueblo, where he obtained employment in the Open Hearth Department of the old CF&I Steel Corp. He subsequently married his beloved Frieda. Later, domestic life was interrupted by his country's call to serve during the Korean Conflict. Mr. Martinez served with honor with the U.S. Army in the battlefields of Korea and later with the American armed forces in Japan. Following his honorable discharge, Ralph returned to Pueblo and his job at CF&I, where he worked until the chronic rheumatoid arthritis forced his early retirement in 1965. Despite illness, Mr. Martinez was not to be vanquished. He pursued his hobbies of fishing and hunting until recent years when his illness worsened. Notwithstanding physical setbacks, Ralph continued to cultivate annually his vegetable garden which was his pride and joy, and it pleased him to share his bountiful harvests with family and friends.

Martinez, James Joseph
James Joseph "Chico" Martinez - Rocky Mountain News - March 18, 2005 - James Joseph "Chico" Martinez worked with kids through college helping to promote education and Hispanic culture. Later in life, he worked with the elderly in southern Colorado, sponsoring programs and services that helped them live more independently. Then he combined his passions for helping others to forge relationships in which the elderly would teach youngsters to read and write. Mr. Martinez died Feb. 18 of a heart attack in his hometown of Trinidad. He was 55. His family and friends said he was still full of ambition and ready to unveil ideas to better serve the underprivileged and the vulnerable. His public service work and his activism were just getting started, they said. "He's already missed in a lot of different ways," said Lewis Kallas, executive director of Seniors Inc. in Colorado. Mr. Martinez worked for the organization, which serves a 13-county region in southern Colorado. "Whenever he would see you, he would have a smile on his face, shake your hand, and he would be genuinely glad to see you," Kallas said. Judy Casias-Peasley, a lawyer who attended Colorado State University with Mr. Martinez during the late 1960s and early 1970s, said Mr. Martinez was an exercise junkie, which made his death harder to accept. "It's still a shock. I still can't believe it today," said Casias-Peasley, who lives in Seeley Lake, Mont. "He was just a wonderful, wonderful person, very dedicated, even-tempered and always on the go." Casias-Peasley said she and Mr. Martinez were members of United Mexican-American Students, or UMAS, while students at CSU. Members of the student group spent their free time visiting elementary, middle and high schools around Fort Collins encouraging students to continue their education while promoting Hispanic song and dance. "He would play the guitar, and I would sing, and he organized a dance group, the ballet folklorico," Casias- Peasley said. Later in life, Mr. Martinez was dedicated to helping others and managed to raise a family, run a ranch and be a cowboy in the Mexican tradition. "He did an awful lot in his 55 years, and one of the things I like to stress was that he also was a dedicated husband and father," said his wife, Marie Guzman-Martinez. "He was a charro, a true caballero. He did this in addition to all of his activities." During the past five years, teenagers in Las Animas County got a chance to listen to and participate in Cancion Mexicana, Mr. Martinez's weekly radio show on KCRT-AM in Trinidad. Cancion Mexicana was an offshoot of the Sunday morning show at Denver's KUVO-FM radio station, and Mr. Martinez took the music, ideas and programming to southern Colorado to help youngsters identify and familiarize themselves with Hispanic culture. Mr. Martinez also helped organize fund-raisers for cultural and arts programs and often brought poets, storytellers and musicians to the high schools. He was active in the Hispanic Genealogical Society and La Confederacion, organizations formed to help youngsters preserve their heritage. "He was very active in dedicating his life to his culture," Guzman-Martinez said. "He believed you lived your culture." As much as he was dedicated to helping young people, Mr. Martinez was equally devoted to serving thousands of elderly residents in southern Colorado. As an operating officer for Seniors Inc., he wrote and obtained grants for the Senior Community Service Employment program, which provided job training for elderly workers in the San Luis and Arkansas valleys. Kallas said Mr. Martinez took a lot of pride in the Foster Grandparent program, in which elderly volunteer's help children learn to read. "I tell you the position he had when he died was a position we kind of built around his strength, and that was his ability to mobilize people around issues and causes," Kallas said. "He could bring people around the southern Colorado region, and it was something I had not seen like anything before." Mr. Martinez was born in Trinidad on Aug. 30, 1949. He attended school as a child in southern Colorado but later moved to Germany and Austria, where his father was stationed in the Army. His family eventually returned to Colorado, and he graduated from St. Mary's High School in Colorado Springs. Services for Mr. Martinez were Feb. 25 at the Faith Christian Fellowship Church in Trinidad. He was preceded in death by his father, U.S. Army Col. Thomas Martinez. In addition to his wife, Mr. Martinez is survived by his mother, Eralia Martinez, of Colorado Springs; a son, Jose Martinez, of Albuquerque; four daughters, Luz Falcon-Martinez, of Golden, Deana Martinez, of Denver, Kimberly Morales, of Phoenix, and Carri Garcia, of Santa Cruz, Calif.; two brothers, Tom Martinez, of Trinidad, and John Martinez, of Colorado Springs; two sisters, Mary Guzman, of Colorado Springs, and Linda Martinez, of Coos Bay, Ore.; and five grandchildren.

Martinez, Jose Maria
Jose Maria Martinez - 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 the 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.

Police Officer Elwynn C. Slater shortly after shot himself through the pelvis while attempting to effect an entrance into the store. The wounded officer is in the hospital and will probably die. Not until 10 o'clock was the crazed doctor captured. In the meanwhile he had been holding an enormous crowd at bay in front of the drug store.

He said that for several days his mind had been a blank; that he knew nothing of what took place on Wednesday evening, and for several days previous to that time. He craves liquor, which is refused him, and this, together with a realization of his deed may make his mind a blank again. Yesterday morning a warrant charging him with the murder of Charles Martz was served on Dr. Rice at the county jail, and he spent most of the day in conversation with his attorney, Miles G. Saunders. His attorney will allow no one else to visit him. Summit County Journal – September 3, 1904 – Dr. Rice Discharged – Pueblo, Colo., Aug. 27. – Dr. Charles O.

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

Matarazzi, Rose E.
Rose E. (Holl) Matarazzi - Pueblo Chieftain - February 22, 2006 - Rose E. (Holl) Matarazzi. Born Aug. 25, 1920, died Feb. 16, 2006. Born in Richardton, N.D., on Aug. 25, 1920, to Johann and Rose (Raskap) Holl. Rose Elizabeth was the fourth of 12 siblings. Being named after her mother, she was known as Rose E., which modified into "Rosie" to her family. A 1938 high school graduate of St. Francis Xavier School in Dyersville, Iowa, her first job was as a secretary with Vogenthaler Engineering in Dubuque, Iowa. She came to Oakland, Calif., in 1942, to be with her sister, Genevieve, while her sister's husband was in the Pacific Theater, WWII. In 1943, she was the first (and only) employee of a start up firm; Atlas Engineering in Oakland, Calif. She claims that her position was "bookkeeper, outside salesman, inside salesman and janitor." She began using her initials, R.E., in all business related correspondence to foil any prejudgment of an engineering company's representative being named Rose. In her business career, she was R.E. Holl. Atlas Engineering was the brainchild of engineer Theodore (Ted) M. Harrer whose first invention was an automated cherry stemming machine. During WWII, Atlas Engineering used its canning and manufacturing equipment to coat tin cans with non-reflective surfaces for the military. When the super-secret Manhattan District Organization was preparing America's atom bomb, Atlas Engineering was called upon to do some work on it. During the Korean Conflict, Atlas Pacific Engineering produced gun-turrets for tanks. In 1946, Atlas Engineering became Atlas Pacific Engineering, added the wholly owned Atlas Pacific Distribution and built a new 40,000 square foot factory in Emeryville, Calif. Atlas Pacific Engineering had become the major player in the fruit processing industry on the West Coast in less than three years. With growth came a corporate structure and Rose became secretary/treasurer of the parent company. Atlas expanded its canning machinery to apples, olives, peaches, pineapple, pears and fruit cocktail with clients including Del Monte, Dole, Hunt Foods, Libby and numerous European and Pacific companies. By the late 1950s, Atlas Pacific engineering was recognized as a world leader in the industry. If you notice the bottom of a pitted olive in your refrigerator has an "x" shaped hole in its bottom, it was most likely pitted on Atlas Pacific Engineering machinery. Rose always joked that Mr. Harrer improvised and used a phillips head screwdriver for a machine part. Rose loved to tell of the idiosyncrasies of canning machine design and engineering from pitting cling peaches (freestones were easy), putting the same number of maraschino cherries into every can of fruit cocktail or the trouble designing an automated peeler for pears so that the processed pears were pear shaped. That single innovation, made in 1953, gave Atlas Pacific a 75 percent share of the world pear processing market by 1964. In 1953, Atlas Pacific Engineering also designed new soda canning machinery for the Shasta Water Co. and became a pioneer in the design and building of machinery to put drinks in cans instead of bottles. Atlas Pacific Engineering also sponsored the Amateur Athletic Union basketball's Oakland Blue 'n Gold Nuggets (aka: Blue 'n Gold Bittners, Blue 'n Gold Atlas) 1947 to 1956. Miss Holl contracted venues, schedules and travel for the team and became the petite, unofficial den mother to such basketball greats as Don Barksdale, Dave Minor, Mike O'Neill and Ken Leslie. It was all part of her amazing job description. Miss Holl married Frank Matarazzi at St. Mary's Church in Walnut Creek, Calif., in June of 1951. Mr. Matarazzi was the vice president of Acme Galvanizing in Oakland, Calif. The Matarazzis resided in Walnut Creek, Calif., until they built their first home in Alamo, Calif., in 1956. Rose became vice president and the worldwide representative and business personality for the engineering company in 1955. Her travels took her all over the globe from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Turkey and Italy to wherever machinery was needed for fruit processing. In 1964, R.E. Holl became the president of Atlas Pacific Engineering Co. A woman now headed a company that designed and manufactured machinery that freed a mostly seasonal, female work force from the labor-intensive canning factories. She was first named to Marquis' Who's Who in Executives of California in 1963, Who's Who in Commerce and Industry in 1964, Who's Who of Women in 1964, Who's Who in the West in 1967 and the World Who's Who of Women awarded in Cambridge England in 1973. Atlas Pacific Engineering was sold in 1968, relocated to Pueblo, Colo., in 1986 and now includes a sister company that makes those ubiquitous little stickers that code number fruits and vegetables for market identification. In 1982, Ms. Holl was named co-chair of the board of director's in lieu of the company accepting her retirement. R.E. Holl-Matarazzi officially retired from an emeritus position on the board of directors of Atlas Pacific Engineering in 2003 at the age of 83 after 60 years of active participation and leadership. Rose Matarazzi was a woman in the work place decades before the concept of feminism. She held that, as a woman in a man's world, she had the upper hand in controlling "the guys" because they were more afraid of her than she of them. When she came home at night, she was the perfect housewife, aunt and neighbor. Not having children of their own, Rose and Frank were the pied piper to all the neighborhood children and their nieces and nephews scattered throughout California, Hawaii, Wisconsin and Iowa. Her hobbies were poetry, gardening, collecting fine art reminders of her travels, cooking, interior decoration, family, her pets and shopping - definitely shopping. Senior Care was added to Rose and Frank's already busy lives from 1963 through 1975. In 1963, the Matarazzis moved Rose's parents from Dyersville, Iowa, to California to be near them and took care of them through their senior years. Likewise, "Grandpa Sam" (Salvatore) Matarazzi was brought from Frontenac, Kan., to a specially prepared guest apartment on their property to remain with them through the remainder of his life. Rose maintained that parental care was a most rewarding experience for her. The Matarazzis moved to Bend, Ore., in 1991. Mrs. Matarazzi served on the financial advisory board for a new school and church for St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Parish. Rose's husband, Frank, died in 1998. She is survived by eight brothers and sisters, 42 nieces and nephews including Christopher Carlo and Robert Chaney of Bend, Ore., and many friends throughout the world. Services were held in Bend, Ore., on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2006. Visitation, 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, 2006, Hull's Walnut Creek Chapel, 1139 Saranap Ave., Walnut Creek, Calif. Mass of celebration, 10:30 a.m. Monday, Feb. 27, 2006, St. Isidore's Catholic Church, 440 La Gonda Way, Danville, Calif. Interment will follow at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Lafayette, Calif.

Fox Parkinson's Research Organization, http://www.michaeljfox.org.

Mather, Charles
Charles "Chuck" Mather – Denver Rocky Mountain News - August 31, 2006 - Cone-zone crash kills road worker - Charles "Chuck" Mather is the 24th employee of CDOT killed in a work zone since 1951. A Colorado Department of Transportation worker was killed Wednesday morning when a tractor-trailer plowed into a road surfacing crew on Interstate 25. Charles "Chuck" Mather, 34, of Beulah was pronounced dead at St. Mary Corwin hospital in Pueblo Wednesday. He had been working for CDOT since June 2005. His wife, Leena, 39, is expecting their first child in November. Four other people, including another CDOT worker, were also injured in the accident, which closed northbound I-25 at Walsenburg for much of the day. Traffic was diverted at Walsenburg and I-25 had been expected to be reopened at 9 p.m. Wednesday. The incident happened at 10:45 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-25, at mile marker 72, two miles south of Colorado City. Robin L. Kirkland, 35, of Pueblo, was driving a white 2000 Freightliner tractor-trailer loaded with 20 tons of rock. He was in the passing lane northbound on I-25 when he rear-ended a white 1996 Toyota pickup truck driven by Bette J. Waitman, 68, of Cheyenne. The semi, while partially on top of the pickup, then veered into the right lane, hitting Mather, who was operating a rototilling machine. Another CDOT worker, Gerald "Jerry" Buchanan, 48, of Boone, barely escaped by leaping off the side of the roadway, falling about 50 feet into a creek bed below. "He has two shattered ankles as the result of jumping from a bridge to avoid the collision," said Stegman. Buchanan was listed in fair condition at Peakview Medical Center Wednesday. Three other members of the CDOT crew were unhurt. Waitman and her husband, Jerry J. Waitman, 70, suffered minor injuries and were treated at St. Mary Corwin hospital. "We haven't had one of our employees injured or killed (in a cone zone incident) since December 2004," said Stegman. "It's unique for a car to crash through a work zone." "This is another needless tragedy on Colorado's highways," said Bob Torres, CDOT regional director. "These crashes are preventable if drivers would just slow down and use extra caution when driving near highway workers. The people working on our roadways are mothers, fathers, brothers and friends. Today is a very sad day knowing that an unborn child will never know its father." Mather is the 24th CDOT employee killed in a work zone since 1951. It was not known Wednesday whether speed, alcohol or drugs were factors, or whether Kirkland, who was also treated for minor injuries at St. Mary Corwin hospital, would be charged with any violations. Randall and Kathleen Engel, of Beulah, are listed as the owners of the semi, according to Colorado State Patrol spokesman Gilbert Mares. Randall Engel said Wednesday night that the tractor-trailer was being driven from Trinidad to Beulah, but declined to comment about the accident, other than to say Kirkland had worked for him for a long time, and that he "was a very good driver." Wednesday, Mather's family was struggling to deal with the loss. "I'm still trying to come out of the shock," said Mather's father, Larry Mather, 60, of Pueblo. "I didn't expect it, especially losing his mother a year and half ago. She had bad lungs, so we knew that was coming. But this was 100 percent unexpected." Chuck Mather, born in a suburb of Detroit, grew up in Pueblo, graduating from Coney High School in 1989. He worked for a small drywalling company for a few years before it went out of business. He then worked for M. Cline Construction in Pueblo for 12 years before taking a job with CDOT last year. "He loved his job with CDOT," said his father. "He loved the people he worked with. It was the best job he had. He liked the people and the way they did business." Larry Mather said his son was aware of the dangers of his job. "It was something that he always worried about because of the drivers," said his father. Chuck Mather married five years ago, and was anticipating the birth of his first child. He enjoyed hunting elk, deer, antelope and pheasant with friends. "He was a good son and a good brother," said Larry Mather. "He was an incredibly hard worker and he was more than well-liked." Services are pending. In addition to his wife and father, Chuck Mather is survived by two sisters, Louanne Mather of Mount Clemens, Mich., and Cheryl Mather of Pueblo, and a brother, Matthew Mather of Eastpointe, Mich. He was preceded in death by his mother, Phyllis Mather, in May 2005.
