Pacheco, Anna
Anna Pacheco – World Independent – July 8, 1937 – Mother-Daughter Quarrel Ends With Girl Committing Suicide – Enraged because her mother severely scolded her, 16-year-old Anna Pacheco of Gardner Wednesday used a .32-40 rifle to send a bullet through her heart and end her life. The suicide was the climax to a mother-daughter quarrel which is believed to have started after the girl was unable to account for her whereabouts Tuesday night. The heated argument started while Mrs. Eusebia Pacheco and her three daughters Anna, Domencenda and Dora were working in the garden near the house. Anna left her work and ran to her room in the upstairs of the Pacheco home. Her mother followed her and found her cocking the huge rifle. Mrs. Pacheco grappled with her daughter in an effort to get the gun. During the scuffle the trigger was touched and a bullet was sent through the floor. Mrs. Pacheco then got the gun and Anna promised not to attempt such a thing again and the gun was placed behind the bed. Mrs. Pacheco left the house and returned to the garden but was startled by a shot. Immediately she returned to the girl's bedroom to find her daughter stretched across the bed, the gun on her chest. "Don't touch me mother," Anna whispered. "It's no use – it's all over now." A doctor was called but the bullet had torn through the girl's heart. County Coroner H. J. Furphy called Sheriff Carl Swift to investigate the situation and the officers in their reconstruction of the shooting said the girl evidently sat on the bed, propped the butt of the gun on the bedstead and touched the trigger with a wire coat hanger which was found on the bed with her. Ann is survived by her mother, the two sisters at home and two other sisters, Mrs. Pete Padilla of Gardner and Lucy Pacheco of Arpan, S. D. Funeral services will be in the care of Furphy Brothers and will be held at the family home Friday. World Independent – July 9, 1937 – Suicide Victim's Funeral Set Back Until Saturday – Pending the arrival of relatives, funeral services for Anna Pacheco, 16, have been postponed until Saturday afternoon at 1:00 o'clock. The services will be held at the family home in Gardner in the care of Furphy Brothers' Mortuary. Miss Pacheco shot herself through the heart Wednesday following a quarrel with her mother.

Pacheco, Juan
Juan Pacheco – Walsenburg World – January 20, 1922 – Pioneer Murdered at His Ranch Home on Tuesday – Juan Pacheco Found With Bullet Hole in his Head by His Grandson – Wife Also at Death's Door – 'Assassin Unknown,' Finding of the Coroner's Jury at Inquest Held Yesterday Afternoon – Word was brought in Tuesday afternoon that Juan Pacheco, a wealthy ranchman, and his wife had been discovered lying on the floor of their ranch house above the Niggerhead mine. Mr. Pacheco was dead and his wife just able to murmur a few words. Since that time she has been unconscious or delirious. Juan Pacheco had been shot just back and above the right ear, the bullet going thru a cap which was on his head. Death must have been almost instantaneous. Mrs. Pacheco was shot from behind the left ear. Juan Pacheco had been in Walsenburg Saturday making a will and attending to other business, and the story rapidly spread that he had shot his wife and committed suicide. The reason for believing this was stated to be that Mr. and Mrs. Pacheco had had trouble over Mrs. Pacheco's children. Pacheco has no children of his own, but Mrs. Pacheco is his second wife and has two daughters and a son, Amarante Calbes, who was arrested last week for grand larceny. It was advanced that Pacheco did not care to have his wife's children inherit his money and decided to kill his wife and then himself. It was stated that his nephew had been at the house and stayed there Monday night leaving Tuesday morning; that the nephew had a gun with him which Mr. Pacheco asked him to leave at the house when he left. This gun was found afterwards lying between Pacheco's legs on the floor. So much for the murder and suicide theory. Others are of the opinion that Pacheco and his wife were shot by outside parties. Pacheco was suppose to have in his possession $2,500 which he received Saturday on some land deal. As a matter of fact Pacheco left his money in Walsenburg and did not have it at the ranch. Little Pedro Domingues, a grandson of the deceased, and living with them, left Tuesday morning to visit at a neighbor's house. He returned home about 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon and looking into the house saw his grandparents lying on the floor in pools of blood. He immediately went to a neighbor to notify them. Frailan Vigil, who lives at Niggerhead, near the Pacheco place, saw two men going along the railroad track about 2 p.m. that afternoon. Another witness at the inquest testified to seeing two men crossing the fields near the Pacheco place. Rosa Pacheco, wife of Zacarias Pacheco, and daughter of Mrs. Juan Pacheco went to the house and saw the bodies of her step-father and mother lying on the floor. She spoke to her mother who murmured something about the enemy had been there and that Don Abilia and a dark one did it. Mrs. Pacheco has been unconscious or delirious ever since. She is not likely to recover. Zacharias Pacheco was in Walsenburg that day and left in company with Amarante Cables and reached home about 5 o'clock. They did not know anything about the tragedy until they reached home. Dr. Paul G. Mathews, the coroner, reached the scene of the tragedy about 5 o'clock. He examined the body but found no gun in evidence. He returned to town and the undertaker Gabe Furphy, went out to get the body. The first thing he saw as he looked at the body was the gun lying between the dead man's legs between the knees and hips, the barrel pointing upwards. Francisco Pacheco, a brother of the deceased, testified that he saw the gun and picked it up and handed it to the undertaker. The gun had one empty chamber, two exploded shells and three loads. The nephew who left the gun there that morning testified that he had shot one of these shells some days before. This would show that only one shell had been exploded at the time or after the time of the tragedy, and that the gun had been placed on the corpse after the coroner had left the place. Zacarias Pacheco and Amarante Calbes did not leave Walsenburg until after the coroner had left and reached there while the coroner was there. It also developed at the inquest that Mr. Juan Pacheco had been suffering for over a year with a sort of paralysis of his arms so that it was impossible for him to raise his arm higher than his chest, indicating the fact that it was improbable that he could have shot himself from behind the right ear. There is a mystery with this shooting which may never be cleared up. The incoherent talk of the wounded woman is to the effect that two men were there and did it, but who they are she is not able to say, and her talk may be simply the wandering of delirium. The coroner's jury brought in a verdict that Juan Pacheco came to his death from a gun shot wound at (article cut off)

Page, William Robert
William Robert Page – Steamboat Pilot – March 21, 1906 – W. R. Page of Yampa was another Routt county man in the frightful wreck near Adobe on the Rio Grande. He escaped with only slight injuries. See Adobe Train Wreck, 1906 for in depth coverage of this disaster. Yampa Leader – November 3, 1906 – William Robert Page – William R. Page, one of the best known and most highly respected citizens of Yampa, passed away at the Yampa hospital Thursday morning, death resulting from a complication of diseases. Mr. Page was a passenger on the ill-fated Rio Grande train which was wrecked at Adobe in March, and while not seriously injured himself, his nervous system sustained a frightful shock by reason of the terrible scenes which he witnessed, more than a score of people being burned to death before his eyes. As a result he suffered agonies from neuralgia, which so undermined his health that when he was attacked by typhoid fever two weeks ago his system was unable to withstand the attack. The neuralgia had settled in his teeth, which ulcerated, and the poison reached the brain, being the direct cause of death. William Robert Page was born in Springfield, Illinois, in November, 1850. He was married to Miss Florence Heiner early in life and had four children, all boys, out of this union. After the first wife's death he was again married, to Miss Ada Heiner, and six children, all girls, were the fruit of this marriage. Mr. Page was a man who commanded the respect of all who knew him by the sterling uprightness of his character and genial disposition. His death is mourned by three sons, one of whom lives in Iowa, another in Yampa, and the third in the San Luis valley, Colorado, where also his surviving wife and six daughters are making their home. Only the two sons who are living in Colorado were able to attend the funeral, which was conducted from the Congregational church yesterday under the auspices of the local camp of Woodmen of the World, of which the deceased was a member, as well as the Masonic fraternity

Palmer, Samuel
Samuel Palmer – Durango Democrat – May 30, 1907 – Samuel Palmer Killed – Like a shock from the unknown flashed the news through the town last evening that at 5 o'clock Sam Palmer, the manager of the Durango Pressed Brick company, with yards on Lightner Creek, had been caught in the crusher at the plant and had been seriously injured. Dr. Ochsner, who had been summoned to wait upon the unfortunate victim, was seen at his office about 8 o'clock last night and reported that Mr. Palmer was injured beyond recovery, and that he could live but a very few hours. His legs were broken in several places and his hips crushed to a pulp. One arm was torn from its socket, besides serious chest and internal injuries. The accident occurred while Mr. Palmer was endeavoring to scrape some of the mixture in the crushing pan with a long handled scraper somewhat resembling a hoe, while doing so the scraper caught and pulled him into the pan, where he was thrown under one of the massive rollers and ground up before the machine could be stopped. The doctor was sent for immediately as was also an ambulance, but the man's condition was too serious to permit of his being taken to the hospital. Samuel Palmer was 56 years of age, and there remains to mourn him a wife, four daughters and one brother, all of whom are in Pueblo, and one brother, who was with him when he died. Mr. Palmer came to Durango from Greeley a year ago last February, and assumed the management of the plant where he met his death yesterday. He was born at Cinicinnati, Ohio, was a member of the I. O. O. F., the Masons and K. of P. No funeral arrangements have been made, but it is likely the remains will be shipped to Pueblo for interment. This will be determined as soon as his folks are communicated with. In all his dealings with his fellow-men Mr. Palmer was upright and conscientious. His was an unblemished career and the state, through his death, loses an honored and useful citizen. He had just about completed a new residence into which he was soon to move his family. Durango Democrat – June 1, 1907 – Sedgwick Post, G. A. R., of Durango escorted the remains of their late comrade, Samuel Palmer, to the depot yesterday morning, the body being shipped to Pueblo for burial. Note: Samuel Palmer was buried in Pioneer Cemetery in Pueblo, Colorado.

Henry J. Pannell Jr. - 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.

Park, Elton C.
Elton C. Parks - Leadville Carbonate Chronicle - May 26, 1919 - Confession of Boskos - Younger of Two Brothers Gives Graphic Description of Killing of Parks and Hunter Near Pueblo - Robbery Their Motive - Cold Blooded Crime - Colorado Springs, May 21 - George Bosko, 24, made a complete confession, the police announced tonight of the shooting and killing of Wm. T. Hunter and E. C. Parks, on the Rye road near Pueblo on the afternoon of April 11, at the El Paso county jail tonight at 8 o'clock. Thomas Bosko, 17, confessed that he accompanied his brother at the time of the killing and that he assisted him in the crime. The men were brot here from Kenilworth, Utah, by Sheriff Sam Thomas and Undersheriff W. S. Slagle of Pueblo County, and are being held in the local jail for safe keeping. The older Bosko, who is of Slav descent, said that he committed the double murder in an effort to obtain funds in order that he might take up a check of $200 which he had forged upon his father. Bosko was to have a half interest in a garage at Lafayette, Colo. His brother-in-law, S. H. McFadden, was to be his partner and it was in paying for his share of the business that he drew the bogus check. He relinquished his interest in the garage to his father and, with his younger brother, he started in search of money. The pair arrived in Pueblo on the afternoon of Thursday, April 10. It was on Friday morning that they left the city, obtaining a ride with Mrs. George Little in her car. When she dropped them they succeeded in getting another ride which carried them to the Hatchett ranch where they asked for work. Their request being denied, they proceeded to the brow of the next hill where they encountered Hunter and Parks. They were taken into the Parks car and while riding in the back seat, they overheard Hunter speak of $3,000 which he had on his person. The plan was immediately formed to kill the men, rob their bodies and to take the car to make an escape to Utah. As they approached a bridge on the Rye road about eighteen miles out of Pueblo, George Bosko drew a gun and shot Parks dead. He then turned the gun on Hunter, firing once. The pair dragged Parks from the car to the edge of the bridge and rolled him over into the arroyo below. Hunter had managed to leave the car and advanced to the bridge. Bosko fired a second shot which passed thru Hunter's chest, killing him. As his victim staggered against the bridge railing Bosko kicked his feet from beneath him and he slipped into the gully below. William Reed and Jack Parker, who approached along the road in a car at that moment, witnessed the third (second?) shot and the killing of Hunter. At the point of a gun the two witnesses were forced to turn about and leave the scene. The Boskos took a Colorado and Southern train to Lafayette at 2:35 o'clock the next morning and from there they went to Kenilworth, Utah, on April 17. The first information as to the men's whereabouts, was discovered by Sheriff John H. Weir of this county. For three days the Pueblo officers and Sheriff Weir followed a trail in the northern part of the state and, obtaining definite information, Sheriff Thomas ordered Sheriff T. F. Kelter of Price, Utah, to arrest the suspects. Fort Collins Courier - June 2, 1920 - Condemned Murderer To Get Sanity Hearing - By United Press. Denver, June 2. - Acting Governor Stephen today appointed a lunacy commission, headed by Dr. Hubert Work of Pueblo, to pass upon the mental condition of George Bosko, who was sentenced to hang during the week of June 21 for the murder of E. C. Parks and William Hunter on the Rye road south of Pueblo, April 11, 1919. George Bosko, age 28, was convicted of the double murder and sentenced to die while his brother, Tom Bosko, age 18, was sentenced to life imprisonment for his part in the crime. The double murder stirred all Colorado at the time it occurred. The two brothers had asked Parks and Hunter for a ride in their automobile and afterwards killed the two men. It is possible that as a result of the appointment of the sanity commission, George Bosko may escape the hangman's noose, but will spend the rest of his natural life in the state insane asylum. Fort Collins Courier - December 11, 1920 - Confessed Murderer is Hung at State Penitentiary Friday Night at 9:08 O'Clock; Death Penalty is Paid For Murder of "Good Samaritan" Autoists on Pueblo Highway - Pueblo, Dec. 10 - George T. Bosko, confessed murderer of E. C. Parks and Will Hunter of Pueblo, was executed in the state penitentiary at 9:08 tonight according to advices received here from Canon City. Prison officials refused to give out any of the details of the execution only that the prison chaplain was present. It is reported by friends of Bosko's mother that she has suffered a collapse and is not expected to live through the night. The following is the history of the crime for which he paid the death penalty tonight: George T. Bosko, 25 years old, and his brother, Thomas Bosko, 18, left Pueblo on April 10, 1919, without funds and looking for employment on ranches in that vicinity. On April 11, near Rye, Colo., while walking along the road, they encountered an automobile driven by Elton C. Parks, in which William T. Hunter was a passenger. Parks permitted the two pedestrians to ride in the car. The two men occupied the rear seat. Eighteen miles from Pueblo, according to his own confession, George Bosko drew a revolver and shot and killed Parks and Hunter. The brothers escaped to Utah, where they were arrested on May 16 at Kenilworth, after a chase of three days in the hills. George Bosko, soon after his arrest, confessed to the double murder, declaring he committed the crime to secure funds. The younger Bosko also confessed to his part in the killing. On June 19, 1919, a jury in Pueblo sentenced George Bosko to hang and Thomas Bosko to life imprisonment. Several reprieves were granted by the lieutenant governor, the last reprieve expiring on December 2, when acting Governor George Stephen announced he would grant no further extension of time.

Parks, Elton C.
Elton C. Parks - Wray Rattler - June 26, 1919 - Morgan County Herald – George Bosko was sentenced to be hanged during the week beginning September 22 and Tom Bosko was sentenced to life imprisonment by Judge Trimble in the district court at Pueblo for the murder of Elton C. Parks and Will T. Hunter on the Rye road near Pueblo on the afternoon of April 11. Sentence was pronounced immediately following the arguments of defendants' attorneys, T. A. Stewart and Robert Morris for a new trial. Judge Trimble also overruled the attorney's plea for dismissal on the ground of former jeopardy. It is likely that appeal to the Supreme Court will be made. The attorneys have sixty days in which to file their bills for exceptions. Weekly Ignacio Chieftain - June 27, 1919 - George Bosko, convicted of killing Elton C. Parks and Will T. Hunter on the Rye road near Pueblo on the afternoon of April 11, was sentenced to be hanged during the week beginning Sept. 22. Tom Bosko, a brother of the doomed man, was given life imprisonment. It is likely that appeal to the Supreme Court will be made. The attorneys have sixty days in which to file their bill of exceptions.Fort Collins Courier – December 11, 1920 – Confessed Murderer Is Hung At State Penitentiary Friday Night at 9:08 O'Clock; Death Penalty Is Paid For Murder of "Good Samaritan" Autoists On Pueblo Highway – By Associated Press – Pueblo, Dec. 10. – George T. Bosko, confessed murderer of E. C. Parks and Will Hunter of Pueblo, was executed in the state penitentiary at 9:08 tonight according to advices received here from Canon City. Prison officials refused to give out any of the details of the execution only that the prison chaplain was present. It is reported by friends of Bosko's mother that she has suffered a collapse and is not expected to live thru the night. The following is the history of the crime for which he paid the death penalty tonight: George T. Bosko, 25 years old, and his brother, Thomas Bosko, 18, left Pueblo on April 10, 1919, without funds and looking for employment on ranches in that vicinity. On April 11, near Rye, Colo., while walking along the road, they encountered an automobile driven by Elton C. Parks, in which William T. Hunter was a passenger. Parks permitted the two pedestrians to ride in the car. The two men occupied the rear seat. Eighteen miles from Pueblo, according to his own confession, George Bosko drew a revolver and shot and killed Parks and Hunter. The brothers escaped to Utah, where they were arrested on May 16 at Kenilworth, after a chase of three days in the hills. George Bosko, soon after his arrest, confessed to the double murder, declaring he committed the crime to secure funds. The younger Bosko also confessed to his part in the killing. On June 19, 1919, a jury in Pueblo sentenced George Bosko to hang and Thomas Bosko to life imprisonment. Several reprieves were granted by the lieutenant governor, the last reprieve expiring on December 2, when acting Governor George Stephen announced he would grant no further extension of time. Colorado Public Defender - December 10, 1920 - George R. Bosko (a.k.a. Bosco), Pueblo. W-W. Hanging/Broken neck. Bosko was executed for the murders of William T. Hunter and Elton C. Parks. Bosko's brother and accomplice, Tom, was under eighteen years of age at the time of the crimes, and because of his young age, he received a sentence of life imprisonment, rather than death, for his role in the crimes. Parks, a car salesman, was demonstrating a new car to Hunter, a ranch owner, when they picked up the two brothers. The brothers then shot the victims and stole the car. Bosko, age twenty-eight, worked as a ranch hand, had no prior arrests, and had served in the Army for three years. Upon his arrest, he gave a full confession, and at his arraignment he pleaded guilty. The convictions were affirmed on appeal. The Lieutenant Governor delayed the execution for five months so physicians could evaluate Bosko's sanity. At the time of the execution, Bosko's mother "is said to have suffered a collapse . . . and was not expected to live thru [sic] the night."

Parrish, Vernon L.
Vernon L. Parrish - 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.

Peerman, Annie J.
Annie J. Gross Peerman – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – March 22, 1915 – Death of Mrs. Annie Peerman – Mrs. Annie J. Peerman, the wife of V. H. Peerman, a well known employe of the Arkansas Valley smelter and a member of the Elks' lodge, died yesterday at St. Vincent's hospital, following a surgical operation which it was hoped would remedy an ailment of the digestive organs which had troubled Mrs. Peerman for several weeks. She was 32 years old. Mrs. Peerman, whose maiden name was Gross, was born in Hedtstett (?), Germany, on July 4, 1882, and came to America when a child. She had lived in Leadville and Pueblo for a number of years, and had lived in Monterey, Mexico, for sometime when Mr. Peerman was located there as a furnace foreman at the A. S. & R. smelter. It was at the conclusion of his employment at that plant of the company that Mr. and Mrs. Peerman were thought to have been lost through the outbreak of the Mexican revolution. Being forced to seek devious routes and slow methods of travel, the Peermans were lost to their relatives here for several weeks before they reached the border and means of sending communications. Mr. and Mrs. Peerman remained in Pueblo for a time on returning to Colorado, and then came to Leadville when Mr. Peerman was transferred to a position at the A. V. plant. Since then they have lived at 407 West Third street. Surviving Mrs. Peerman besides her husband are three sisters and one brother: Mrs. E. L Brown and A. T. Gross, who reside in the city; Miss Marie Gross, of Pueblo; and Mrs. J. S. Bryant, of Leavenworth, Kansas. The latter were notified yesterday. During her residence in the city, Mrs. Peerman made many friends who held her in high esteem. Her sudden passing yesterday was to them a severe shock. Arrangements were made yesterday to hold funeral services Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the residence and at the Church of the Annunciation at 9:30 o'clock. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – March 22, 1915 – From Thursday's Daily – Funeral of Mrs. Annie J. Peerman – Impressive funeral ceremonies were observed yesterday morning at 9 o'clock for the late Mrs. Annie J. Peerman, the wife of V. Homer Peerman, a well known Elk and employe of the A. V. smelter. At the residence at 407 West Third street at that hour many friends paid their last tributes, and then proceeded to the Church of the Annunciation where the final services were observed. The Rev. Father W. J. O'Malley officiated, assisted by the Annunciation choir, and sang the requiem high mass, later giving a brief address in which he tendered high tribute to Mrs. Peerman, a resident of Leadville for a number of years and during that time a devoted member of the church. Mrs. J. M. Knight, accompanied by Miss Ethel Conley, sang "Calvary," the beautiful solo of the services. Mrs. Peerman, during her life in Leadville, had made friends by the score, to whom her death was as the loss of a dear relative. They attended the services in numbers yesterday, and paid their last silent tributes with a wealth of floral offerings. At the conclusion of the ceremonies a long cortege formed in front of the church and followed the hearse to the Elks' Rest where interment took place. The pall bearers were Messrs. Frank Simmons, George Colahan, Clarence O'Neill, Peter Vranesic, Fred Wise and Clarence Snyder. With Mr. Peerman here in his sorrow were Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Gross, Miss Marie Gross and Mrs. H. W. Ashford, all of Pueblo; Mrs. E. L. Brown, a sister of Mrs. Peerman, and Al L. Gross, a brother, of this city, and Mrs. J. S. Bryant, a sister, of Leavenworth, Kansas.

Perez, Jose
Jose Perez - Yampa Leader - July 3, 1914 -Three Die, Four Hurt - Pueblo -Three men were killed , four were injured, while several others whose bodies have not been recovered, are believed to have been buried in the debris, when the engine of an extra freight train comprising thirty-two cars and caboose left the rails on the main line of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad near the Goodnight ranch, six miles west of Pueblo, and plowed into an embankment. The wreck is attributed by railroad officials to the spreading of the rails, caused by their expansion under intense heat. A repair crew was at work on the track, over which trains were passing frequently, when the accident occurred. The dead: John M. Nolan, engineer; crushed to death in his cab. Jose Perez, thirty, crushed to death in refrigerator car. Juan Sevalues, 23; crushed to death in refrigerator car. The injured: O. V. Hipps, fireman; scalded by escaping steam and bruised in jumping to safety from cab. Charles Barone, thirty, Shawnee, Okla., ribs broken and possible internal injuries. Andrew Alcon, twenty-eight, Lucerne, N.M.; bruised and possible internal injuries. George Lowe, thirty-five, member of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, Sparks, Nev.; broken leg. Only about half of a band of twenty-five tramps who were riding the train toward the wheat fields of Kansas have been accounted for. It is thought likely that an examination of the wreckage of the eight cars which followed the engine from the rail and were demolished may reveal more dead. None of the present list of known dead were members of the train crew except the fireman and the engineer. The body of the engineer was dug from his cab about four hours after the crash. The force of the impact of the giant freight locomotive against the soft dirt embankment forced one side of the engine into the slope for several feet. Nolan's skull was crushed and his body was completely buried.

Permo, Agnes
Agnes Permo - Westland News - January 17, 1918 - Frozen to Death - Frank Skul, Mrs. Agnes Permo, and her son Frank, only about 11 years old, were frozen to death in the storm Wednesday night of last week near Inman, on the Missouri Pacific, fifty miles west of Brandon. They came from Pueblo, called by serious illness of a sister-in-law of Mrs. Permo, Mrs. Janko, who lives on a homestead near Inman. According to the train crew with whom unfortunate victims traveled to Inman, they were advised to go to Haswell, a short distance this side of Inman, and remain for the night. This they refused to do, however, because of a report that Mrs. Janko was dying. When they alighted from the train the station was scarcely distinguishable in the swirl of the snow. Skul had passed within a stone's throw of the Janko ranch and had gone beyond it, nearly a half mile, unable to see lights in the windows through the storm. Mrs. Permo evidently had wandered about in circles, and finally sought shelter in the lee of a huge snow drift, where she was found. The boy evidently had stumbled and fallen into another drift where he lay until death overtook him. The three alighted from the train shortly before midnight and set out to walk the distance to the ranch house. This was the last seen of them alive.

Mrs. Permo is widely known in the local Slovenian colony.

Permo, Frank
Frank Permo - Westland News - January 17, 1918 - Frozen to Death - Frank Skul, Mrs. Agnes Permo, and her son Frank, only about 11 years old, were frozen to death in the storm Wednesday night of last week near Inman, on the Missouri Pacific, fifty miles west of Brandon. They came from Pueblo, called by serious illness of a sister-in-law of Mrs. Permo, Mrs. Janko, who lives on a homestead near Inman. According to the train crew with whom unfortunate victims traveled to Inman, they were advised to go to Haswell, a short distance this side of Inman, and remain for the night. This they refused to do, however, because of a report that Mrs. Janko was dying. When they alighted from the train the station was scarcely distinguishable in the swirl of the snow. Skul had passed within a stone's throw of the Janko ranch and had gone beyond it, nearly a half mile, unable to see lights in the windows through the storm. Mrs. Permo evidently had wandered about in circles, and finally sought shelter in the lee of a huge snow drift, where she was found. The boy evidently had stumbled and fallen into another drift where he lay until death overtook him. The three alighted from the train shortly before midnight and set out to walk the distance to the ranch house. This was the last seen of them alive.

Perse, Marc

The Colorado DOC recognizes the ultimate price paid, dedication and loyalty of the following men: August 15, 1994 - Marc Perse tragically lost his life at age 26 as a result of falling 90 feet from a rappelling tower during training for the Special Operations Response Team. Perse was a graduate of Central High School in Pueblo and the University of Southern Colorado. He worked at Colorado Territorial Correctional Facility for 3 1/2 years prior to his death. He was survived by a large and loving family. Coworkers said at the time of his passing that Marc would be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor and his love of family and friends.

Perse, Mark
Mark Perse – Colorado Springs Gazette – August 17, 1994 – Prisons Officer Killed While Training – Rappelling Accident Claims Pueblo Man in AFA Field House - A state prisons officer who was rappelling face first during a training session at the Air Force Academy Field House fell to his death Monday evening when a ring that attached him to his rope opened. Sgt. Mark Perse, 26, of Pueblo died of massive head injuries about 2 1/2 hours after the 7 p.m. accident. He had worked at the Colorado Department of Corrections' Territorial Prison in Canon City. An instructor in special weapons and tactics, Perse was the first to go down the rope. He was rappelling from a catwalk along the ceiling about 80 feet above the artificial turf of the indoor track and football practice field. Perse was some 20 feet above the floor when his Swiss seat harness and D-ring - an oval-shape ring with an opening that locks - "disengaged" from the rope, witnesses said. But he apparently had run into trouble somewhere near the top of the 80-foot drop. Corrections officer Steve Paolino told investigators that he was at the bottom of Perse's rope, acting as the belay person. Paolino said that about 15 feet from the top of the rope, he saw Perse "grab the rope with both hands, as if trying to stop," an El Paso County sheriff's report said. Paolino pulled on the rope, providing tension designed to stop a falling rappeller. "But it had no effect in stopping him," Paolino said. Perse went into a spin as he fell and picked up speed until he lost the rope and hit the ground on his head and right shoulder, witnesses said. A figure-eight ring used to connect Perse to the rope was found still attached to the rope about 4 feet from the catwalk, the report said. The D-ring, which hooked Perse's safety harness to the figure-eight ring, was found on the floor about 15 feet from his body. "The D-ring safety lock was backed off and would allow the D-ring to open," the report said. He was rappelling face first - "Australian style" - which is considered more difficult than going down a rope back first. It was the first time he'd tried that method in about three years, witnesses said. Perse had been married about a year and had no children, said Department of Corrections spokeswoman Liz McDonough. He had been a member of the state prisons' Special Operations Response Team - known as SORT - since 1991 and was recently promoted to sergeant, she said. "He was a valued member of our staff," she said. "He was an extremely friendly individual. We're going to miss him a lot." McDonough said she couldn't find records on the last state corrections officer killed on duty, but said she couldn't remember one in the five years she's been with the department. The training academy, held annually, teaches SWAT-type tactics to state and federal officers from across the region. The 34 members of this class finished the last day of their 11-day course in private Tuesday. "These men and women get very close," McDonough said. "They are having a difficult time with it. They are just trying to finish what they started."

Persons, James
James Persons - The LaVeta Advertiser - August 4, 1900 - It is with regret we note the unpleasant events of last Sunday's excursion to the past. The weather was pleasantly cool and the general program was nicely arranged for those taking an outing. The railroad company did their part like clock work and cared for those injured in an affray caused by the too free use of liquors and needless presence of guns on such an occasion. To the credit and justice of the excursion it must be said that those articles used in the row came from Russell, although the constant cracking of guns during the day was a matter of great danger in a gathering of that kind where stray shots were liable to cause serious results at any time. A number of people came up from Russell and Grayback, among them being James Persons who has been a freight and transfer man, and a companion Charles Campbell, a miner from Slone and Ripley's camp on Grayback. They were drinking and Persons got into a dispute with another party and flashed a knife, when Gregonia Vasques tried to mediate, Persons striking Vasques with the knife, cutting his clothes badly but not reaching his body. Persons pursued, and Vasques after a short run procured a club with which Persons was dispatched and left in a serious condition. About that time Campbell mixed in for Persons and finding the club a formidable obstacle ran through the crowd until seeing a cowboy standing with a revolver in his belt snatched it away and threatened to shoot any and all who opposed him. Vasques fell back into the crowd and Campbell started in pursuit when A.Y. Gribble clinched the gun. In the scuffle it was turned towards him and fired, the bullet entering his body near the center of the lower bowels and passing out at the right hip. Gribble fell and others drew back while Campbell wildly flourished the gun as he cut loose a horse and rode away before the crowd of spectators realized what had happened. As he went down the canon perhaps twenty shots were fired at him cutting the air uncomfortably close, as his actions indicated, but none were effective, and bareheaded, with short bridle rein and pistol in hand a thousand spectators saw him disappear among a shower of bullets, one of which made a severe wound in his left foot causing him to venture into Russell for food and to dress the wound. He went direct to Hudson's restaurant where shortly afterwards sheriff Breen and deputies captured him and started for San Luis where he is now in safe keeping. The two wounded men were cared for by Doctors Roripaugh and Wright who being present rendered prompt attention, and the railroad company ordered them placed on board the first section and sent at once the hospital at Pueblo. Both men were in a serious condition when they left and died on the following day. The remains of A.Y. Gribble were brought to LaVeta for interment on Wednesday morning and funeral services conducted by Rev. E. B. Chenoweth were held in the Methodist church on the afternoon of the same day. Mr. Gribble was a brother to Mrs. Henry Vasques and leaves also two brothers, both residing in Colorado to mourn his loss. He died in the attempt to protect a friend and as far as we can learn had no part in the quarrel. We understand that James Persons had a sister in Denver but was a comparative stranger in these parts. His remains were interred at Pueblo.

David Peyton – Pueblo Star Journal – October 17, 1904 – Mangled By Train – Colorado Springs, October 17. – The body of an unknown man was found lying in the center of the Denver & Rio Grande track at Rosewell about 7 o'clock last evening. He was either struck or fell under the train. The opinion of those at the scene was he was a tramp. He was apparently about middle age and had a heavy dark mustache. The body was found by the yardmaster at Rosewell. Coroner Law is investigating. The only possible means of identifying the man is through a card which bore the name and address "David Peyton, St. John's, Kansas". But St. John's was crossed out and Rocky Ford substituted. Two fingers on his left hand were missing and had evidently been off for several years. Both legs were cut off and the body had been dragged about fifty feet northward.

Rescuers have been divided into two hour shifts and work will be kept up continuously until the entire mine is explored. During the entire day excitement ran high and relatives of the entombed miners stood waiting at the entrance to the mine for a sight of any of the victims that might be brought to the surface. The damage to the mine cannot be learned tonight. An attempt is being made to force air into the mine in the hope that some of the entombed men may be alive, and thus prevent their suffocating. Late advices are that the mine is badly wrecked. The rescue party has penetrated three hundred feet and recovered four bodies, the names not being given. Reno Evening Gazette, Reno, NV- Jan 24, 1907 - Trinidad, Colo., January 24, 1907 - Heroically at work the rescuing party has so far succeeded in recovering but four bodies from the Primero Mine where the explosion occurred yesterday morning.

Phippenny, Alvin
Alvin Phippenny - Colorado Weekly Chieftain - July 3, 1879 - Murder Most Foul - A Policeman Shot While in the Discharge of His Duty - A Ranchman Fatally Wounded - Another Terrible Temperance Lecture - During the past two or three days a number of cattlemen from the round up, which as reached this neighborhood, have been in the city enjoying themselves. On Saturday and Sunday the boys indulged in a good deal of harmless hilarity somewhat noisy but not one was injured in any way. Yesterday morning a number of them collected in the Arkansas Hall saloon, on Santa Fe Avenue, and the party was joined by John Baxter, a farmer, who lives on Mrs. Steele's ranch about nine or ten miles up the Fontaine. The party were all somewhat under the influence of liquor, and Baxter became quarrelsome. Some of the cow men knew that Baxter was a dangerous man when under the influence of liquor, and cautioned their comrades about him, fearing that trouble would come. No attention was paid to the warning, and about noon the party became exceedingly noisy. About half past twelve Policeman Alvin Phippenny went into the saloon and attempted, as we are informed to arrest some of the parties. He clinched with Baxter, and one shot was fired inside the saloon. The men came out into the street where four shots were fired. They again rolled into the saloon, when another shot was heard. The policeman fell in front of the bar, a ball having entered his back under the shoulder blade and passing through his body, lodged directly under the nipple. Baxter was shot directly through the stomach. Phippenny died in about fifteen minutes after the shooting. What Phippenny Said - Drs. Cortright and Owen were called in immediately; but nothing could be done to save the wounded man's life. He asked Dr. Owen if he was going to die, and being answered in the affirmative, said: "Well, good bye, I did my duty as well as I could." An answer to an inquiry as to who did the shooting, he replied that Baxter and another man both shot him. Policeman Bilby then came to him, and the dying man told him that he had received his death wound in the discharge of his duty. He asked to be allowed to get all the fresh air possible, and died calmly and perfectly conscious until the last. Policeman Phippenny has been a resident of Pueblo for the past two or three years. He came here from Nebraska, was about thirty-two or three years of age, and was a widower with three or four small children dependent upon him. He was a brave and faithful officer and died as he said, in the discharge of his duty. John Baxter, the wounded man came to this section of country about a year ago from the Cherokee nation. He is about thirty-three or thirty-four years of age and is considered when under the influence of liquor a dangerous man. In addition to the wound in his stomach he has a severe scalp wound from a blow from the officer's pistol. After he was wounded he walked across the street to Mr. Corder's drug store, supported by two of his friends. Dr. Thombs dressed the wound, but it is his opinion that it will prove fatal. Baxter was removed to the Bartels building, now occupied as part of the Lindell Hotel, and is receiving all possible attention. He was not at all communicative but expressed a wish that his girl might be present to see him die. The Arrests - On complaint being made before Justice Hart warrants were issued for the arrest of James Moore, Daniel Shaffler, John Baxter and David Hall, Shaffler and Hall were immediately arrested, Baxter is Mortally wounded and Moore cannot be found. He came to the drug store with Baxter but went away immediately afterwards. Shaffler and Hall are in the county jail. The Inquest - Dr. Thombs, the coroner, summoned a jury and proceeded to hold an inquest upon the body of Policeman Phippenny. The inquest continued until 5 o'clock when it was adjourned in order to allow the taking of the ante-mortem statement of John Baxter. We suppress for the present the evidence given before the coroner's jury. The Funeral - The funeral of the murdered man will take place from the city council chamber this (Tuesday) afternoon at four o'clock. The funeral will be attended by the city council, fire department and numerous other citizens. Mr. Phippenny, we are informed, was to have been married on the evening of the day upon which he was killed. We are informed that the ball removed from the dead officer's body is too small to fit Baxter's pistol. It is claimed too that three men were engaged in the attack upon the murdered man all of whom can be readily recognized. The reward of $500 offered by the city council for the arrest, and the conviction of the murdered will, no doubt, secure the capture of the guilty parties. As far as we can learn no effort as yet has been made by the officers to capture the missing man. Baxter the wounded man is still alive but shot through the stomach and suffering terribly. He cannot survive much longer. An attempt was made to take his ante-mortem statement yesterday afternoon but it was unsuccessful. The inquest upon Officer Phippenny's remains will be continued at ten o'clock this morning. The Murdered Policeman - Testimony at the Coroner's Inquest - Dr. P. R. Thombs, the coroner summoned the following gentlemen on Monday afternoon to act as a coroner's jury to examine into the cause of the death of Policeman Alvin Phippenny, who was shot at Arkansas Hall: Messrs. Edward Zimmer, Isaac Freund, Otto Winneka, John Pritchard, E. J. Castle, and Julius Berry. The inquest was held at the saloon where the murder took place. The following is a synopsis of the important part of the testimony before the jury. James Rupe, sworn. Lives on Turkey Creek. Was in Pueblo on June 30th at John Schwer's saloon. Saw Baxter have his pistol out. Heard fussing and looked around and saw Baxter and Phippenny disputing. Heard Baxter say, "Here is one of those fellows that wears a star now, and I have got a six shooter." The policeman said, "I want it." Moore was in the saloon just previous to this. Baxter's pistol was the same size as Moore's. I think about eight inches. Did not see Moore. Heard five shots fired. Phippenny and Baxter both seemed to shoot at each other. Did not see a man with leather breeches firing a shot. Heard a shot inside and a man yell. Had just gone into the saloon when the policeman came in. D. C. Hall, sworn. Lives on Turkey Creek. Saw Moore in Schwer's saloon about noon. He had a pistol but I did not see it. Baxter was in the saloon. He had a large pistol about forty-five caliber. The shooting took place about noon. Moore and Baxter were armed, I think. The first shot was fired outside of Schwer's saloon. I was in the saloon. I heard Baxter say he would not give up his pistol. Heard the shooting outside. Moore was under the influence of whisky a little. Baxter came outside and asked the policeman if he wanted his pistol. Moore's pistol is not as large as Baxter's. I don't know just how much difference. Moore stayed inside the saloon. I went in and saw three or four men taking Baxter's pistol away. Moore helped Baxter over to the drug store. Four shots I think were fired. Daniel Shaffner, sworn. I came into town about ten o'clock on the morning of the 30th. I was in town on the Sunday evening previous. Was present when the policeman took the pistols away from some, I was one. Told Baxter and Moore the police had taken the pistols away. They said the police had no right to do so. Baxter and Moore came in the next morning. Saw Moore have a pistol. It was a small pistol with a small sized scabbard, not very long. Should say Moore's pistol was not a 44 caliber. Think Baxter's was a 44 caliber. Baxter and Moore were feeling their liquor a little. Heard Baxter say he would not give up his pistol. Heard four shots fired. Left Moore in the saloon and went out of the back door and walked around to the street. Simpson and Moore were the only ones in the saloon. Simpson had no pistol but Moore had one. Heard Baxter say, "No d--n s-n of a b---h can take a pistol from me." Moore had gray clothes on with leather overalls. His pistol was a short one. A. Allen, sworn. I know the deceased. Phippenny said to Baxter not to make so much noise. Baxter said, "G-d d--n you, you are a policeman. what have you got to say about it?" and pulled a six shooter out. It was nickel plated, should thing about 44 caliber, and fired three shots at Phippenny. This was on the sidewalk in front of John Schwer's saloon. Phippenny made a grab for Baxter and struck him on the head three or four times with a pistol. Then Baxter shot at him, and I think hit deceased in the head. Then Phippenny shot at Baxter and I think hit him in the bowels. Then Baxter hit Phippenny on the head with his pistol and knocked him against the screen inside of Schwer's saloon. then a man about five feet six inches, dressed in dark clothing, came to the door of the saloon and fired a shot at deceased. I saw a pistol in his hand. Don't know the man by name. Would know him if I saw him. He then got on his horse and rode off as fast as possible. He rode a bay horse. I then went into the saloon. J. M. Thatcher, sworn. Was coming down street and saw Phippenny leaning against a wall. Spoke to him and then went across the street and heard a shot fired. Turned and saw a tall man with leather breeches, woolen shirt and soft hat pull out a six-inch pistol silver or nickel plated. He took deliberate aim at the deceased. He fired two shots, the deceased dodging, taking deliberate aim each time. Then they went into the saloon out of sight and a man came out, got on his horse and rose away as fast as possible. Could not say that any of the shots struck the deceased but think they did. Dr. Cortwright, sworn. I asked Phippenny about five minutes before he died who shot him. He said Baxter. Some one asked him if any one else shot him. He said yes. He was nearly out of breath. Someone asked him in Jim Moore shot him and he said yes, yes. This bullet was taken from the body of the deceased. I cut it out by request of Officer Bilby after Phippenney's death. Testimony of a similar character was given by Messrs. Cowles, Jenner, Roberts, Moek, Simpson and others. The following is the verdict of the coroner's jury. We the undersigned persons having heard the testimony, inspected the body and made all needful inquiries in respect to and upon the body of Alvin Phippenny lying dead in the saloon of John Schwer on Santa Fe Avenue in the town of Pueblo, County of Pueblo, and State of Colorado, upon our oaths do say that the said Alvin Phippenny came to his death from a pistol shot from the hands of John Baxter or James Moore, on the 30th day of June A. D. 1879. Ed Zimmer, Isaac Freund, Otto Winneka, John Pritchard, E. J. Castle, Julius Berry. Messrs. Shaffner and Hall who were arrested on Monday were discharged from custody. John Baxter, the man wounded by Policeman Phippenny is getting better, to the astonishment of everybody, and now stands a fair chance of recovering. The Funeral - At four o'clock yesterday afternoon, the funeral of the murdered policeman took place from the city council chamber, under direction of G. Q. Richmond, Esq., city attorney. The remains were enclosed in a handsome coffin, Sheriff price, Deputy Sheriff Studzinaki, and Policeman Bilby, Desmond, Mahar, and Sheats acting as pall bearers.

She was a member of St. Francis Parish where she sang in the church choir preceding her lengthy illness and was a retiree from the Colorado State Hospital. She was a true believer in keeping things simple and not sweating the small stuff, until it came to her family where the sky was the limit. Being home with her family was her joy, and the simple things in life were her passion. A new nest of birds in the back yard, rescuing a family of abandoned baby squirrels, feeding a stray cat or dog, walking in the rain, the pride in hanging out the whitest wash on the block, playing with the family pets (which she loved like her children), her family around the table, the Denver Broncos (especially her "boy" John Elway), caring for her beautiful yard and prize roses; these are the things she lived for. She will be remembered fondly for her infectious smile and love of a good joke, her modest and unassuming nature, her love and devotion to her family and her melt-in-your-mouth meatballs and spaghetti sauce like no other. We rejoice with you Mother that you are finally at home with God. You were truly one of God's "Angels on Earth." We were so fortunate to have you with us for so long; time to build a million beautiful memories. We know and understand now that you actually gave us two lives, our own life and yours. You taught us well how to survive without you for a little while, but you didn't prepare us for the hole that has been left in our hearts. We look forward to seeing you soon. Your loving husband and daughters. At her request, cremation is taking place and there will be no formal church proceedings. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests donations to be made in her memory to the Sangre de Cristo Hospice, 1716 Reading Ave., Pueblo, CO, 81005.

Pierce, Jeremiah N.
Jeremiah "Jerry" N. Pierce – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – January 8, 1917 – Jere N. Pierce Dies In Pueblo – Was One of Pioneer Live Stock Men of State, and Lived for Many Years in Leadville – Pueblo, Colo., Jan. 1. – J. N. Pierce, prominent cattleman of Leadville and Denver, died in a Pueblo hospital today after an illness of several weeks. The death in Pueblo at Clark's Wells yesterday of Jeremiah N. Pierce, pioneer Leadville cattleman, chief organizer of the famous Pierce-Reef Cattle company which grazed herds all over western Colorado and Wyoming and former Lake county commissioner and Leadville alderman, carried to the great vanguard of pioneers one of Colorado's foremost builders. Old friends of the veteran cattleman who was 68 years old, knew of his serious sickness at Pueblo and had learned that death was imminent. Members of the Mt. of the Holy Cross Commandery No. 5, Knights Templar, in which he retained membership, sent him Christmas greetings in the way of roses which were taken to his sick room on Christmas Eve. Other local friends also sent their holiday greetings, knowing that it might prove to be their last opportunity. Mr. Pierce had been failing in health for a number of years. About fifteen years ago he was held up and robbed in a caboose of a cattle train on which he was tending cattle on the way to market, and was severely beaten when he put up resistance. This serious outcome of the holdup in the Minturn railroad yards, Eagle county, was believed by his friends and family to be the breaking point in his usual good health. He never fully enjoyed perfect physical condition after that occurrence. During the last year his health had failed rapidly. When he visited old associates in Leadville early last fall, he complained that he was not so strong as formerly and could not stand much exertion. Several weeks ago he underwent a surgical operation at a Salida hospital in hopes that it would remedy the kidney and kindred ailments which affected him. As soon as he was able he was taken to the hospital at Clark's Wells, where he died yesterday. Mrs. Pierce, their daughter and two sons, all former Leadville residents, had been with him constantly during the holidays. Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced. Jeremiah N. Pierce, known throughout the west as "Jerry" Pierce, was born in Monticello, Wayne county, Kentucky, on May 21 (?), 1848. Three years later his parents settled on a farm in Wayne county, Iowa, where Pierce on reaching school age attended the public schools. In 1871 he went to St. Louis and for two years was employed as collector for Dr. A. Coyle. His advent in Colorado was dated February 24, 1873, when he came to Fremont county and engaged in a cattle business which occupied him there until 1882. In the latter year(s) Mr. Pierce moved to Leadville and soon engaged in a wholesale butcher and meat business, enlarging it and branching out into the cattle raising business. He became one of the foremost residents of Leadville, and in 1886 was elected as city alderman from the First ward, a position he held one term. In November, 1888, he was elected a member of the board of county commissioners and served out the one term. His marriage took place on April 29, 1884, his wife being Emma K. Davis of Pueblo county. In the early days here Mr. Pierce was associated with the wholesale meat business in the firm of Pierce, Hasley & Co. Later when he decided on branching out more extensively into cattle raising, he was the principal in the organization of the Pierce-Reef Cattle Co., which soon became the largest and foremost cattle outfit in the west with herds roaming all of the western slope in Routt, Grand, Rio Blanco and Summit counties and in southern Wyoming. The big outfit bought and owned ranches in most of these counties, tho maintaining its chief headquarters at the Pierce ranch on the Bear river. Several years ago Mr. Pierce bought out the Reef interests in the famous company and became the sole owner of its extensive possessions. He continued active management of the company interests until two years ago when ill health advised lessening of his activities. He sold all of the land and livestock holdings at that time to the Clayton and Mairnam company and retired to his city home in Denver. Mr. Pierce is survived by his wife, a married daughter, Edna, Albert and Horace, who was graduated from the University of Colorado last June. All live in Denver. During the family's residence in Leadville their home was at Spruce and West Seventh streets in the dwelling now occupied by Adam S. Sharp, bookkeeper of the Leadville Water company.

Pipkin, Marianne Robinson
Marianne Robinson Pipkin - The Denver Post - December 11, 2005 - Marianne Pipkin was voice of comfort to grieving families, By Claire Martin, Denver Post Staff Writer - Pallbearers carry the casket of Marianne Robinson Pipkin at Zion Baptist Church in Denver on Saturday. Pipkin, who comforted countless families at Pipkin Mortuary, died Dec. 1. She had a reputation as a sharp dresser and once made Colorado s 10 Best-Dressed Women list. For nearly two decades, the first voice that comforted countless grieving families belonged to Marianne Robinson Pipkin, who died Dec. 1 at the age of 80. She insisted on taking all the night telephone calls that came to Pipkin Mortuary. Some nights, the telephone seemed to ring every hour, rousing her from sleep to reach for the phone, pen and notepad on her nightstand. When morning came, she squinted one way and another at her handwriting, trying to decipher the scribbles. "Oooh," she would say half-jokingly, "I can hardly read this." Then she would go to her day job, answering phones at the mortuary nearby, consoling more mourners. When she returned home, where the mortuary calls were forwarded to the family's private line, she refused to relinquish her self-appointed task even for one night. "She felt everybody who called here needed to talk to a Pipkin, a member of the family, not an answering machine or an employee," said her son, Mark Pipkin. "Even after she stopped working at the mortuary in 1991, she took all the death calls at night. She talked to every family personally, until she couldn't write anymore." Born Sept. 1, 1925, in Trinidad to Elaine Sutton-Robinson and Frank Robinson, she attended Prairie View A&M University in Texas, the University of Denver and Barnes Business College. She met Joseph Pipkin in 1941 and married him 12 years later, becoming the stepmother of his three sons. She worked as a librarian at Cole Middle School, where her stepsons were students. "Everything we did got back to Dad immediately," recollected stepson Carl Pipkin. For 12 years, Marianne Pipkin divided her attention among her secretarial jobs; her mother, who lived with the Pipkins after becoming increasingly disabled by multiple sclerosis; and her own young children, Joseph Mark Pipkin and Sherri Ann Pipkin. In 1979, when her husband retired from Union Pacific Railroad, Marianne Pipkin took early retirement from her job at University Hospital. When her son finished mortician's school, the three invested in the building at 2531 Ogden St. that still houses the business. About the same time, doctors told Marianne Pipkin that she had multiple sclerosis. Her husband took her to a medical facility in Germany, but their hope of arresting the progressive disease went unrealized. Marianne Pipkin decided to live on her own terms with the disease. Until she died, she kept up with her reputation as a sharp dresser that put her on the list of Colorado's 10 Best-Dressed Women in one survey. Her outfits turned heads every Sunday at Zion Baptist Church. She liked high heels and continued to wear them even after requiring a cane or a walker to march down the red carpet at her church's annual celebration of its 50-Plus Year Members. "She made herself visible, especially at those special occasions," said the Rev. Frank Davis, pastor at Zion Baptist Church. "You better believe it. She was some kind of dresser." During her salad days, Marianne Pipkin frequented elite shops, including Montaldo's and Neusteters, sorting through the racks and shelves. "She would tell me - and not only me, but all the young ladies - that you don't need a lot of cheap clothes, only a few good pieces," Sherri Ann Pipkin said of her mother. Marianne Pipkin trained her discerning gaze on Pipkin's staff, too. She never hesitated to tell a pallbearer or funeral director that he needed to polish his shoes, brush down his suit or get a haircut. She remained fastidious about her appearance even after her disease forced her to start using a wheelchair more than 10 years ago. When she could no longer do her own makeup, her daughter, who once ran the beauty shops Centre Stage and Simply Beautiful Hair & Nails, polished her nails and applied lipstick for her. Marianne Pipkin's mind and eyes seemed even sharper as her body deteriorated. She put a premium on looking good for visitors who dropped by and made a point of gently demanding details about their lives. When she learned that the Rev. Davis had recently acquired a new car, she commanded him to drive it past her bedroom window so she could have a look at his elegant pearl-white Lincoln Continental. "So I pulled it up outside her window, and when she rejoined with me later, she told me, 'You deserve a big car,"' he recalled. "I got a big smile out of her. I told her, 'One day, you and I are gonna take a cruise.' "We would always go there to minister to her, but she would wind up ministering to me, with that motherly love and concern." Survivors include son Joseph Mark Pipkin of Denver; stepson Carl Pipkin of Dallas; daughter Sherri Ann Pipkin of Denver; four grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren. Two stepsons and her husband preceded her in death.

Piscopo, Joe
Joe Piscopo – Colorado Springs Gazette – May 16, 1926 – Death Tally Five Each - Pueblo, May 15 - With the killing of the two Danna brothers Friday Pueblo's black-hand war has accounted for 10 men in a short span of years, and the count is even, both sides having killed five. Such is the statement today, by one of the recognized leaders of the Sicilians of this city, who characterized the Bacino murder in Denver as a move in Pueblo's war, which originated over liquor troubles shortly after Colorado went dry. The Sicilian told an Associated Press representative today that up until the time of the killing of John Danna in the summer of 1925, that faction had lost but one man, Joe Piscopo, husband of the woman now held for the murder of Frank Bacino. Bacino's murder followed and then the killing yesterday, which brought the total to five. The first killing in the war was that of one Pete Viola, who was shot in Bessemer while riding on his delivery wagon. This man belonged to the faction blamed for yesterday's killing. A Carlino and a Mulay, relatives of those named in dying statements of the Dannas as their slayers, were killed and then this faction imported two gunmen. Both of these were killed. Two men, Pete Walker and Pete LaRocco, were added to the deathbed list as occupants of the cars. These men are both strangers in this city. Inquest has been set for Monday afternoon. Colorado Springs Gazette 10-2-1926 - Giarratano is Found Guilty Uncle's Death - Sister Acquitted in Denver Court After Long Trial - Shoes Convinced Jury That He Was Slayer; Blackhand Defense of Accused - Denver, Oct. 1 - James Giarratano was found guilty of first degree murder for killing his uncle, Frank Bacino of Pueblo, here last April, by a jury in West Side court tonight, which fixed the sentence at life imprisonment at hard labor in the state penitentiary. Mrs. Rose Piscopo, jointly charged with Giarratano, was found not guilty. The case went to the jury at 6 p.m., and at 9:30 p.m. it had reached the verdict. As the verdict was read in court, Giarratano grew pale but kept his composure. Mrs. Piscopo slumped in her seat and wept. Lewis D. Mowry, defense counsel, said that motion will be made for a new trial and if this is denied, the case will be carried to the higher courts. Shoes worn by Giarratano the night of the murder were perhaps the strongest evidence against him. A city detective testified that immediately after the shooting he found footprints by the window thru which the shots were fired. He forced Giarratano to remove his shoes, placed them in the tracks he said, and they fit perfectly. Sensational testimony of alleged slayings of a blackhand society in Colorado, including the killing of Mrs. Piscopo's husband, was brought into the trial by defense witnesses in an attempt to show that the members of this society had shot Bacino. Sam Danna of Pueblo, whose three brothers were recently killed, was a defense witness this morning. In closing the argument for the state, Prosecutor Wettengel charged that the blackhand theory had been injected into the case purely as a "smoke screen." "The state can't look into the mind of Jimmy Giarratano and tell the sinister secret that lurks behind his smile," he said. Giarratano killed Frank Bacino, as the bulk of the evidence has indicated. Giarratano is trying to hide behind a foreign tongue and his sister's skirts."

Pitcock, Carl
Carl Pitcock – Durango Democrat – October 16, 1904 – Terrific Head-On Collision Between Express and Freight Train – Pueblo, Oct. 15 – Nearly a score of persons were injured in an end-on collision between Rio Grande express train No. 6, east-bound, and extra freight train No. 63, west-bound, one-half mile east of Adobe siding and four miles east of Florence, at 6:50 o'clock this morning. The two trains came together on a sharp curve and neither engineer saw the oncoming train until they were only thirty feet apart. The express train was traveling at the rate of thirty miles an hour and No. 63 was an extra freight; going at the rate of eighteen miles an hour. The impact was so great that nearly all the passengers were hurled from their seats and Mrs. F. P. Cunningham, wife of the Denver & Rio Grande agent at Eden, was thrown through a window. The front end of the boiler of the freight engine was imbedded in the front end of the express train fully sixteen inches. The accident was due to the failure of the freight train, which was late, to take the siding at Portland and allow the passenger train, which was running on schedule time and had the right-of-way, to pass. Conductor Elmer Dewey of the freight had been given orders to side track at Beaver station. When asked for a statement, Dewey merely said it was a misunderstanding of time on his part. When the trains came together six cars were thrown fully twenty feet from the track and are almost a total loss. The baggage, express and smoking cars of the express train were reduced to kindling wood. The impact was so great that the express car was thrown over the tender of the engine of the express train and nearly half of the baggage car stood on the top of the broken tender. The scenes for the first few minutes after the wreck occurred are indescribable. The noise of the escaping steam from the battered engines, mingled with the groans and shouts of those who had escaped was awful. Telegrams were hastily sent to railroad headquarters at Pueblo and Salida and a relief train with every available physician and nurse was sent to the scene of the wreck. The first reports of the wreck that reached Florence stated that a score of people had been killed outright and that twice as many more were wounded and dying. The utmost excitement prevailed in the town and within an hour a thousand people had started to the wreck in wagons, on horseback and on foot. Transportation conveyances were at a premium and long before 9 o'clock another rig could not be procured at any price. Despite the awful force of the collision neither of the engines of the wrecked trains left the track, but they now resemble two big heaps of iron. Those most seriously injured are: Engineer Fred Boosinger, Pueblo, of the freight train, jaw fractured, arm broken and internal injuries; Conductor A. G. Moulton, Denver, train No. 6, bad gash on head; Carl Pitcock, fireman on No. 6, broken arm, leg bruised and probably internally injured; Engineer August Belye, Pueblo, of train No. 6, fractured ankle and broken arm; Mrs. F. P. Cunningham was severely injured, besides sustaining a number of minor bruises; Myrtle Cunningham, daughter of Mrs. F. P. Cunningham, arm and leg bruised. Pueblo, Oct. 16, 1 a.m. – Fireman Carl Pitcock of No. 6 died at 11:30 o'clock last night in the railroad hospital at Salida.

Plywell, Susan Clare
Susan Clare (Groth) Plymell - Pueblo Chieftain - June 19, 2006 - Susan Clare (Groth) Plymell, 52, passed away June 17, 2006, due to cancer. She was born on Oct. 18, 1953, to Helen and Clarence Groth. Susan's childhood home was Fort Lyon, Colo. Her father worked as a social worker at the V.A. Psychiatric Hospital, and her mother as a nurse. Susan remembered Fort Lyon as a wonderful place to grow up. There she would learn the beauty of the Southern Colorado plains and farmland, the lessons from her parents at the Psychiatric Hospital, and challenges of the mentally disabled, particularly the veterans of our country. These experiences during her childhood taught her to see an ever-present God in her life. It would not be uncommon for Susan to call her friends together to play "church." She was an honors graduate of Las Animas High School, Otero Junior College and Adams State College. Following graduation from Adams State, Susan returned to her home school district in Las Animas and taught bilingual education in the elementary grades for several years. Shortly thereafter, she returned to school to attend Iliff School of Theology in Denver. During her internship year at St. Paul in Pueblo, she met her future husband Bill Plymell. Following her final year at Iliff, she returned to Pueblo and married Bill on Dec. 27, 1981. Together they raised four children, Terry, Tom, Elizabeth and Katie. Susan served St. Paul as an intern and then as associate pastor with Rev. Bill Obaugh in 1982, and 1983. Following, Susan went on leave of absence to spend time with her growing family and then began serving the Olney Springs United Methodist Church in 1987, and continued her part-time ministry there until 1996. She was then assigned to Faith and Pueblo West United Methodist Ministry in 1996. The two congregations eventually became SonRise Church. New church ministry became a priority in Susan's life as she served the Faith and Pueblo West congregations. The ten years of her ministry with the two congregations convinced her of how important new ministry is for the life of United Methodism, and the spreading of the Christian gospel. Along with new ministry, Susan had a great concern for the children of the community and created an after school reading program called StoryTime. StoryTime eventually entered the prison system to become a ministry there. Susan learned in her early years the integrity of each individual and the gifts each person brings to the world. Susan also helped to create a sign-language choir and encouraged work in deaf ministry. Susan is survived by her husband, William Plymell; her mother, Helen Groth; brothers, John (Margo) Groth and Tim Groth; and sister, Janet (William) Orpet; children, Terry (Elena) Plymell, Tom (Wendy) Plymell, Elizabeth (Jason) Caldwell, Katie Plymell; and grandchildren, Andrew and Austen Plymell. Visitation, 1 to 6 p.m. Monday at the funeral home. Interment, 9 a.m. Tuesday at Imperial Memorial Gardens. Veterans Court of Honor, with memorial service to follow at 10:30 a.m. at United Methodist church.
