Taff, Christina Scott
Christina Scott Taff – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – October 26, 1871 – From the Altar to the Grave – That it is but a single step from the most supreme felicity to the profoundest sorrow – or from the altar to the grave – is well illustrated in the melancholy case of Mrs. Taff, whose marriage appears side by side with her obituary notice, in another column.  The maiden name of the deceased lady was Christina Scott.  She was a native of Canada East, and came to this country at an early day, with her friends, for the benefit of her health, she being subject to that distressing complaint, asthma.  On Thursday evening, the 19th inst., she was united in the bonds of matrimony to Mr. Abram Taff.  Soon after the ceremony, and before the congratulations of friends had concluded, she was taken ill with her old complaint, which soon assumed an alarming character, and in spite of all that love and medical skill could suggest, the lady continued to grow worse, and on Saturday, only two days after her marriage, she breathed her last.  The orange blossoms of cupid were exchanged for the sable plumes of death, and where festivity reigned now all is mourning.  The deceased was a lady universally respected for her many excellent qualities of head and heart, as was shown by the large circle of sorrowing friends who attended her funeral.  The bereaved husband has the sympathy of the entire community in his great affliction.  Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – October 26, 1871 – Married.  Taff – Scott – In Pueblo, October 18th, by Rev. J. Merrill, Mr. Abram Taff to Miss Christina Scott, all of Pueblo.  Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – October 26, 1871 – Died, on Saturday morning, at half past two o'clock, in Pueblo, Mrs. Christina Taff, aged thirty-three years.

Tappan, Charles E.
Charles E. Tappan – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – October 30, 1879 – Accidental Poisoning – Sad Death of Mr. Chas. E. Tappan – The following obituary notice was kindly furnished by Dr. Isaac T. Coates, who was called, but alas! too late to render any service to the deceased: It is with feelings of the deepest melancholy that we came to offer our tribute of respect and affection to the memory of the late Charles E. Tappan, Esq., late of Gilmanton, N. H., of the firm of Betts & Tappan, whose demise took place at the residence of Edward C. Betts, Esq., on the 26th inst., at eleven o'clock, A. M., aged thirty-two years. The circumstances of his death were substantially these: The deceased was subject to the most excruciating attacks of neuralgic headache, to relieve which he was compelled to take morphia; and he had been in the habit of doing so, at such times to relieve his sufferings. The day before his death he wore his wonted cheerfulness, being unusually well, and was prepared to start next morning for Walsenburg. But towards night he was attacked with a severe headache which, at the hour of his retiring, eleven o'clock, was unusually severe. At five o'clock next morning he was heard to come down stairs and go into the parlor, where there was kept a bottle of the sulphate of morphia, which, at this time, contained about twenty grains. This, which he took up stairs with him, was afterwards found empty. There was also found under his pillow an empty two ounce chloroform bottle. The supposition is that after being partially relieved from his pain, when, no doubt, the judgment was swamped by the narcotic, on taking the second dose to procure sleep, he took by mistake, all that was in the bottle. This, added to the inhalation of the chloroform (the two drugs taken together greatly intensify each other's effect), produced a fatal narcotism which notwithstanding all that Mr. Betts and the family did to resuscitate him – which at that late hour was all that the best medical skill could have done – ended in death about six hours after, at 11 A.M. The deceased was called to breakfast by Mr. Betts at about a quarter to nine. Having received no answer Mr. Betts, at nine o'clock, entered the room and found him in a state of complete unconsciousness, which was the first intimation the family had of his dangerous condition. Mr. Tappan had been in this state about four years; had been very prosperous in business, and was highly esteemed by many friends, who will sorrow over his sudden and untimely death. It is a melancholy fact that, in sorrowful events like this, when we would fain do most to enlighten the grief and stay the tide of affliction, we are alas! able to do least. Time alone can cure the wounds inflicted by the unrelenting hand of death. The exquisite suffering, the lingering sadness – long months, or it may, years can alone alleviate and dissipate. The heart will ache, the tears will flow, the mind will refuse to be comforted. Then, all we can do is to condole with the bereaved and mingle our tears and sympathies with theirs. "Give sorrow words; the grief that must speak, whispers the o'er fraught heart and bids it break." Death is at all times sad. The cold and lifeless form, the livid, dumb lips, the closed sunken eyes, and the pulseless heart, always fill us with instinctive awe and sadness. But death is never more sad than when it victimizes youth and virgin energy. In the autumn we look for the sear and yellow leaf; but we grieve for the loss of the blossoming flower, killed by the untimely frost. He who has lived to a good old age whose silvery locks and feeble step bespeak the winter of his days, has run his race in this life, and reason bids us be reconciled to his loss, when death comes. But when blooming manhood fragrant with the still lingering years of adolescence, with a brilliant future and high hope – when such a one is suddenly snatched from us by the icy hand of death it is but natural that the event should shock and appall us. The one great mitigating circumstance to his relatives, and those who were nearest and dearest to him, is, that he died among friends, who were well nigh akin to relatives, and at peace with all the world. He sleeps the last sleep – his body is free from pain and his mind from anxiety. Then let those whom his death will most afflict be resigned. "Farewell! A word that hath been must be; A sound that makes us linger – yet, farewell!

Tarsney, Thomas J.
Thomas J. Tarsney – Durango Democrat – April 23, 1902 – The funeral of former Adjutant General Thomas J. Tarsney takes place in Pueblo. Yuma Pioneer – April 25, 1902 – T. J. Tarsney Dead – Former Adjutant General – Recently Returned From the Philippines – Suffered From Injuries Received at the Time of the Cripple Creek War – Pueblo, Colo., April 20 – Former Adjutant General Thomas J. Tarsney died yesterday morning at 10 o'clock at his late residence, No. 307 Spring street, this city. The immediate cause of his death was dropsy. He had been in ill health since his return from the Philippines, two years ago, but his illness was not considered serious until a few days ago, when he began sinking rapidly. Thomas J. Tarsney, adjutant general under Governor Waite's administration, figured conspicuously in one of the most serious crises of the state's history, and bore the marks of that experience to the end. Leading his troups in the Bull hill war at Cripple Creek, tarred and feathered by the angry participants in that fight and feeling the effects of that terrible night all the rest of his days, Tarsney never could get the memory of it out of his mind, and his friends think that the horror of that memory contributed to break down his health. He came to Pueblo in 1874, and was afterward admitted to the bar. He was appointed adjutant general by Governor Waite in 1894. When the war between the mine operators and the miners broke out at Cripple Creek, Tarsney, with the state troops that the governor had called out hastened to the seat of hostilities. Tarsney was stopping at the Alta Vista hotel in Colorado Springs. One night a mob surrounded the hotel, broke into the general's room, carried him some distance from the city and there applied a coat of tar and feathers. When the angry men left him he made his way back to the city and was cared for by his friends. Tarsney, after the trouble was ended, returned to Denver and remained in office till the end of Governor Waite's term, when he went to Durango, where he was district attorney at one time. A few years later he went to Pueblo.

The identification none of which are positive are: Alvin Johnson, a Swede, formerly employed on the Victor water works. Charles Logan, at one time an employee on the Roosevelt drainage tunnel. John Tenbrick at one time employed on the El Paso mine. All the men named left the Cripple Creek district about a year ago. An inquest will be held tomorrow. Charles A. and Sterling Martin, two young boys were stealing a ride on the train are held in the county jail at Cripple Creek pending an investigation. Charles was slightly wounded in the neck by a shot fired by the Pullman porter on the train. They both deny any knowledge of the hold up. Four posses are out hunting for accomplices of the dead man. Account of the Incident: Leadville - Fireman Paul Bockman of the Colorado Midland train which was held up early this morning near Divide, tonight told the story of his experience. He said that while cleaning the fire, he turned around and was looking down the barrels of two big six shooters. The robber told the engineer and himself to climb down, after which he marched them to the express door and commanded Bockman to order the express messenger to open that door. As there was no reply, the robber shouted, "Open that door or I'll blow up your car". The crack of a rifle was the only response. Seeing that the bandits' attention was engaged, said Bockman, I ducked under the car and ran around to the rear. Just then I heard Stewart say "Get on and hold him, I'm shot," and I got on the prostrate bandit and waited for the other members of the crew to come up. Neither Bockman nor Steele the conductor heard any other bandits although the Pullman conductor said he heard someone shouting from the embankment, come on and get away from here.

Terry, Luke
Luke Terry - Akron Pioneer Press - November 14, 1913 - Four Men Shot Dead - Three Killed From Ambush In Strike Riots - Mine Guards Slain As They Flee In Auto With Miner From La Veta - Aguilar Miner Shot - La Veta, Colo., Nov 9 - The most tragic battle in the history of the strike struggle in the southern fields took place Saturday afternoon at the Gene Loughhead ranch, three miles west of the mountain town of La Veta, when an automobile containing four guards, the driver and one miner, was ambushed by a gang of men and three of them killed and two wounded. The dead - Harry Bryan, 1832 Ogden street, Denver, captain of guards; Walter Whitten, Carlton hotel, Denver, guard; Luke Terry, Colorado Springs, chauffer. The Wounded - R. G. Adams, Arriba, Colo., shot through left arm and right foot; William Gamblin, miner, shot through right lung. The place where the shooting took place is ideal for an ambush. The road winds out of La Veta and runs along and up a hill. At the right of the hill, where the road starts up, is the Loughhead reservoir held in by a dirt embankment. It was from this embankment that the strikers did their firing. The riddled automobile stood Saturday night in the same spot where the stiffening hands of the chauffeur had stopped it. Terry slipped down in his seat still holding the wheel. Fifty yards back Captain Bryan lay face downward with his gun under him. Whitten, twenty yards back of the machine lay on his back. The machine was riddled with bullets. Gamblin is at the Owen ranch. He is not in a dangerous condition. R. G. Adams was taken to the office of Dr. Lamme. General Chase Says Situation Critical - Trinidad - Adjutant General John Chase regards the situation in the strike zones of southern Colorado as most serious following a day of bloodshed and violence. The streets of Trinidad and every section of the strike district are being guarded by militiamen to prevent further outbreaks. One non-union miner shot and killed and one striker wounded at Aguilar; a mine clerk, assaulted, beaten and left for dead by strikers at the McLaughlin mine three miles south of Trinidad; two miners beaten by strikers at Starkville; a camp marshal captured by strikers, disarmed and driven from Segundo; and a skirmish between strikers and military guards at Forbes, is the record of twenty-four hours in the Las Animas county district since General Chase left Denver for his military headquarters here. Five bridges of the Denver & Rio Grande main line between Cucharas and Rouse Junction have been burned. Strikebreaker Is Slain Near Aguilar - Pedro Armijo, 52, a non-union miner from the Ravenwood mine in Huerfano county, was shot and killed on the outskirts of Aguilar by one of a group of six strikers from the Aguilar tent colony who, it is reported, had followed and surrounded him on his way to Lynn station to take a train for Walsenburg. Terror Rules Coal District - With R. G. Adams, the fourth of the men shot in the ambuscade near La Veta Saturday afternoon, dead in the hospital at Pueblo, the feeling of horror in this district over the killing has intensified. That the reign of terror is on again is freely expressed by citizens. The strained feeling that pervaded both La Veta and Aguilar during Saturday and ended in killings was felt at Walsenburg up until a late hour Sunday night. It broke once when strikers caught Neal McDermott, fire-boss from the Maitland mine, before the Star theatre and beat him. Alamosa Independent Journal - April 6, 1916 - Eight former coal strikers, held in county jail for two years in connection with the killing of Luke Terry and several mine guards at La Veta, during the southern Colorado coal strike in 1913, were ordered released by Judge Essex in the District Court sustaining a motion by their attorney setting up the statue of limitation.

Terry, Lydia E.
Mrs. J. H. Terry - Pueblo Chieftain - January 26, 1909 - Mrs. J. H. Terry, wife of Judge Terry of Silverton, died at Los Angeles, Cal., Saturday. Mrs. Terry had but recently reached California from Colorado in hopes that the change from the cold, snowy climate of her home to that of southern California might prove beneficial to her health. About two months ago Mrs. Terry fell and broke her arm and badly bruised her body generally, from the effects of which pneumonia developed. She has remained in a critical condition ever since and the attending physicians advised that she be taken to the lower part of California where it was hoped the mild warm climate and sunshine would do much to improve her condition. Judge Terry and their daughter, Mrs. M. W. Strong of Denver, were with Mrs. Terry in California and will return with the remains to Pueblo, where interment will be made. Services will be held at McCarthy's chapel Thursday, January 28, at 10 o'clock. Mr. and Mrs. Terry spent several winters in Pueblo with their daughter, Mrs. M. W. Strong and are well known in this city.

Terry, Mamie
Mamie Terry – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – August 22, 1878 – Suicide – A Fair Frail One Takes Laudanum – By the time this issue of the Chieftain reaches our readers, another unfortunate will have departed for that unknown country beyond the grave, through poison administered by her own hand. About ten o'clock last night a young girl known as Mamie, who boarded at Miss Esther Baldwin's, came in from a carriage ride with some friends and in a short time went to her room. Sometime afterwards another occupant of the house went into Mamie's room and found her in an unconscious condition and immediately gave the alarm. Medical aid was immediately summoned and the physicians on their arrival pronounced it a case of opium poison, the vile drug having been absorbed into the patient's system to such an extent before the discovery of her rash act that she was even then beyond medical aid. At half past two o'clock this morning the unfortunate girl was still alive, though her end was evidently drawing nigh. She is supposed to have procured and taken the poison while she was out yesterday evening. From her conversation with several persons during the past two days, she evidently contemplated the rash act, and was much enraged yesterday afternoon on finding that a female friend had destroyed a quantity of arsenic which she had concealed in her room. She had talked considerably about her mother and other relatives and paid up all the little debts she owed. Mamie had been a resident of this city for about four years, she was a native of St. Louis, of Bohemian parentage and was separated from her husband, whose name is Terry, and, we are informed, a plumber in that city. She had been drinking some during the day, but no great amount. The poor girl received every attention possible from her companions, and all that medical skill could accomplish was done for her. – The unfortunate girl, Mamie, who took laudanum as stated in our issue of yesterday, died on Friday at 2 o'clock. Dr. Thombs, the coroner, held an inquest upon the body, resulting in a verdict that the deceased came to her death by poison administered by her own hand. The deceased was buried yesterday afternoon. The coffin was a very handsome one, and no expense was spared by her friends and acquaintances here in giving the poor girl an appropriate burial. She has gone to her account and those who would speak harshly of her should bear in mind the text of scripture – "Let him who is without sin amongst you cast the first stone."

Thach, Jeannette Faris
Jeannette Faris Thach - Huerfano World - July 2, 1992 - Funeral service for Huerfano Jeannette Faris Thach, Southern Colorado real estate broker, educator, artist and historian was Saturday from J.M. Antle Funeral Home. Mrs. Thach died early Thursday, June 25, 1992, in Huerfano County Medical Center in Walsenburg. She was 81. Born Dec. 11, 1910 in Walsenburg to Asperidon and Louise Saliba Faris, she was the couple's oldest child and only daughter. Her father was the owner of a general store in then, Talpa, northwest of Walsenburg. When the citizens of Talpa applied for the permit to have their own Post Office, Jeannette was four. Her father, being the store owner, was designated to be the Postmaster. The people of Talpa were told they must choose another name for their town because it was confused by the Postal department with Talpa, NM. To honor their storekeeper, the townsfolk opted to name the town Farisita, a Spanish word meaning "little Faris girl," after Jeannette. She was then predestined to be a collector of history for the area and for the county. She spent much of her life preserving artifacts, articles, and mementos of historical significance to Huerfano County, Walsenburg and much of Southern Colorado. Mrs. Thach attended Huerfano County schools, graduating with honors. She went on to attend a two year teacher certification program in Greeley. Upon completion of this certification she returned to Walsenburg to earn a living teaching eight grades in a one room schoolhouse on the upper Huerfano River basin. During this time as a teacher and assisting her mother and brothers in the operation Of the store and sheep and cattle ranch she was introduced to a young reporter from United Press in Denver who had come to the area to do a story on the Penitentes. Jeannette Thach While escorting him around the county, the reporter, William Thach fell hopelessly in love with the young teacher acting as his guide. They were married while he was state editor for the Billings (MT) Gazette. The wedding took place on Apr. 25, 1936, in Billings. The couple returned to Huerfano County where they continued in the ranching business after Jeannette's mother became very ill. She returned to school teaching as a means to help support them during some very lean years in the ranching business. The Thaches became proud parents of a son, William M. Thach Jr., and a daughter, Edith Louise Thach. Shortly after, Thach formed a real estate brokerage partnership for Southern Colorado Land & Livestock Company. The untimely death of his partner brought Mrs. Thach into the world of real estate trading. She studied and became a licensed salesperson and then broker, becoming a full partner in the business that the two ran successfully for nearly 35 years. During this time Mrs. Thach continued with her community activities and was the driving force in the creation of Francisco Fort Museum in La Veta and served as a leader in the effort to build a modern 30 bed hospital to serve the county. Mrs. Thach was a water color artist and spent many hours accompanying Bill on ranch showings, painting endless small environmental images of the ever changing scenes of the Sangre de Cristo mountains she loved so much. She was honored by the Huerfano County Chamber of Commerce in 1978 as Outstanding Businesswoman of the community. She was mentioned in several editions of Outstanding Women of Colorado, Outstanding Women of America and Who's Who of American Women. She was an honored member of the Colorado State Historical Society, Business and Professional Women, Huerfano County Historical Society and Huerfano County Board of Realtors. She served on the President's Council of Senior Citizens, VISTA for Huerfano County. She was also a member of the Huerfano County Republican Party and the United Church of Walsenburg. Survivors include her husband, William, Walsenburg; two children, William, Denver and Edith Sheldon, Denver; a brother, Joe E.

William "Bill" Mason Thach - Huerfano World - April 17, 2003 - William Mason (Bill) Thach, a resident for nearly 70 years, passed away Monday, Apr. 14, 2003 at Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center. He was 93 years young. Born in Athens, Ala, in 1909, his father, Alabama State Senator Henry Clyde Thach was taken from him by an unfortunate death when Bill was only six and his mother, Edith Marion Mason-Thach then moved Bill, his elder brother and herself to Salt Lake City, UT, to be with other members of her family. Soon the entire family moved to Denver. Bill attended elementary and high school in Denver Public Schools and was among the first graduating class from the new East High School. He attended CU and graduated in 1932 with a degree in Journalism. He often related experiences that counted such well-known people as Pete Smythe and Byron "Wizzer" White among his college buddies. He was an athlete who excelled in boxing and baseball while attending CU and always supported the school's athletic endeavors as an avid fan. He also was a member of Phi Psi fraternity. Bill came to Huerfano County in 1934 while employed as a stringer for United Press in Denver. He was given the assignment of doing a story on the Penitente religion in Southern Colorado. When he arrived in Walsenburg and asked about finding out something about his assignment he was told to 'find Jeannette Faris because she would know.' He found her and she took him to see a Morada and then to witness the private service. He fell in love with her. When he asked to see her again, she tried to discourage him to no avail. They were married in Billings, MT, on Apr. 25, 1936 where Bill was named city editor of the Billings Gazette. Jeannette and Bill had Bill Jr. in 1938 and Edith Louise in 1941. During this time the family was ranching sheep after returning to Huerfano County. In 1944 during a downturn in the agricultural stock market Bill took and passed his real estate broker's test and entered into a partnership agreement with a local realtor. The realtor passed away very suddenly and Bill became the sole owner of the business. Jeannette also took her broker's test and then went to work with him. The couple built Southern Colorado Land and Livestock Company, one of the most successful real estate businesses in Southern Colorado and perhaps in all of the state. Among Bill's many accomplishments were transactions involving most of the land deals in Huerfano County and many other parcels throughout the state and New Mexico that were transacted through the office. Bill took flying lessons, became the owner and pilot of a Piper Pacer, ran for the Colorado State Senate on the Republican ticket and was defeated by the Democratic candidate. He served on the city council twice, belonged to the Chamber of Commerce, the Huerfano County Board of Realtors, Lions Club, Elks Club, served as a deacon for the Community Church and later the United Church of Walsenburg and became a Master Appraiser for the State Highway Department. He assisted in the effort to fund and build the Walsenburg Municipal Golf Course and became one of the most avid golfers the course has known. Bill displayed an unparalleled passion for whatever he did. He was highly respected for his ethics in business. He and Jeannette always appreciated the opportunity to live and do business in Huerfano County. Bill and Jeannette retired from the real estate business in 1976 to spend time with their art, golfing and traveling. They had built a beautiful home with a fabulous view of the Sangre de Cristo Range and each enjoyed expressing their artistic talents in different mediums. Bill was terribly saddened to lose Jeannette in 1981 and fondly recalled many wonderful memories of their 55 years together. They surely must be rejoicing to be together now. Survivors include: Bill Jr. and his beloved companion Karen Kaiser Their four children include Bill's children, Jason Asperidon of Carlsbad, CA, and Rebecca Clair of New York City. Karen's children are Wendy Nossaman of Denver and Aason and Eric Alms and son Brayden of Pasadena, CA. Bill's daughter Edith is widowed from John Sheldon. Her children include Michael Mason and wife Lori, their son John Patrick and daughter Nancy Jeannette of Broomfield, CO and William David of Southbury, CT and wife Joy, one niece, Susan Thach Dean of Annapolis, MD, three cousins, Cindy Smith, Rusty McClintick and Barbara Blow. Surviving in-laws include members of the John Faris, James Faris and Joe Faris families. Following cremation, memorial services will be held on Monday, April 21, at the United Church of Walsenburg at 11:00 a.m. There will be a brief reception immediately following the service in the basement of the church. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the William Thach Memorial Fund at the Community Bank of Walsenburg.

Thatcher, Henry Calvin
Judge Henry Calvin Thatcher - Aspen Weekly Times - March 20, 1884 - Judge Henry Calvin Thatcher, of Pueblo, died of Bright's disease at San Francisco on the 20th. He came to Colorado in 1866. March 21, 1884 - Special Dispatch to the Tribune, Pueblo - March 20, 1884 - As the Tribune readers are aware, Judge Henry C. Thatcher has been lying at San Francisco quite sick for the past week. This morning news was received that he had breathed his last at 5:35 a.m. of Bright's disease of the kidneys. Judge Thatcher and wife, and a party of friends left Pueblo for a visit to Southern California about March 1. The Judge was apparently in excellent health and spirits, but it was known to his intimate friends that he had been suffering from kidney complaint. Arriving at Los Angeles, several days were spent there, but the weather being so damp and disagreeable a steamer was boarded for San Francisco on the 9th of March, and at noon the following day the deceased was seized with convulsions, which continued for several hours. There was no physician on board, but one was procured at Port Hartford, where the boat touched, and the journey was continued to San Francisco. The afflicted man never rallied from the attack and sank rapidly until death relieved him. Henry Calvin Thatcher was born in Perry county Pennsylvania, on April 21, 1842. He was educated at the Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, graduating in 1864. The succeeding year he read law at Hollidaysburg, Penn. In the spring of 1866 he graduated in the law department of the Albany University, New York, and in the fall of the same year he came to Colorado, and at once located at Pueblo. Here he commenced the practice of his profession, which he has actively continued since, with the exception of three year's service as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Colorado. In 1879 he was appointed United States Attorney of Colorado by president Grant, the duties of which office he discharged for more than a year, when he resigned. He was elected a member of the Constitutional Convention from this district on a non partisan ticket, and in 1876 he was nominated by the Republicans as one of the candidates for the Supreme Court of Colorado, to which he was elected, and in drawing lots for terms, Judge Thatcher drew the short term - three years - thus becoming Chief Justice. At the conclusion of his term of office he returned to Pueblo and resumed the practice of his profession as a member of the firm of Thatcher & Gast, which formed in 1874. At the time of his death he was the solicitor of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe road for the State of Colorado. Judge Thatcher was first married in 1869, his wife dying in 1875. The fruit of the first marriage was a son, now about 12 years old, who survives his father. In 1879 the deceased was married to his present wife, the fruit of the second marriage being also a son, now, in his third year. The father and mother of the deceased are still living at Martinsburg, Pennsylvania. Deceased was recognized as one of the most influential citizens of Southern Colorado, and was universally acknowledged to stand at the head of the Pueblo bar. His death is regarded by all who knew him and is regretted as a public calamity to Pueblo, of which he was one of the most progressive and enterprising citizens. The Colorado Prospector - November 1927 - First State Supreme Court Justice Henry Calvin Thatcher - First Chief Justice of Colorado Henry Thatcher found his niche in the legal profession. A widely known and respected jurist, Judge Thatcher served as chief justice of Colorado from 1876 to 1880 retiring from the bench to practice law in the Pueblo area. Rocky Mountain News - March 21, 1884 - A Dead Jurist - Judge Thatcher, of Pueblo, Died in San Francisco, Yesterday - The announcement of the death of Judge Henry C. Thatcher, of Pueblo, at San Francisco yesterday morning was a shock to all the old-timers of Colorado. Judge Thatcher went to California several weeks ago, prior to which time he had not complained of any serious ailment beyond the slight attacks of rheumatism, although the dispatches say the cause of his death was Bright's disease of the kidneys. He was born in Perry county, Pa., April 21, 1842, and was consequently in his forty-second year at the time of his death. His father was Henry Thatcher, of New Jersey, and a merchant. The Thatchers were of English extraction, having come to this country fifty years before the revolution, and members of the family figured in it. His mother was Lydia A. Albert, of German descent. Both parents are yet living and reside at Martinsburg, Pa. They are strict members of the German Reformed church, in which faith their children were educated. He attended public school in his native town, spent two years at a school in Academia, Juniata county, Pa., from which he graduated in 1864 with the highest honors. During the succeeding year he taught school and studied law under Essington Hammond, of Hollidaysburg, Pa., for a year and then entered the law department of the Albany university from which he graduated in the summer of 1866 with the degree of L. L. B. He immediately returned to his home in Hollidaysburg, Pa., and was admitted to the bar of the state. After practising law about three months he obeyed Horace Greeley's injunction and came West. At that time Topeka, Kas., was the western terminus of the Kansas Pacific railroad, and the rest of the journey had to be made in wagon trains. The trip across the plains occupied sixty-five days, and he arrived in Pueblo October 31, 1866. In January, 1867, he began the practice of law in that city, in which, with the exception of the three years he was upon the Supreme bench, he has ever since been engaged. In January, 1868, he was appointed by President Johnson United States attorney for the district of Colorado, but resigned this office May, 1869, being elected a member of the constitutional convention the same day by a joint convention of both parties, such was the confidence he had already inspired in people of all classes in the state. In 1874 he united in partnership with him Charles E. Gast, Esq., the firm being Thatcher & Gast. In 1876 he was elected a judge of the supreme court of Colorado at the first state election which was held, together with Judges Wells and Elbert. As the terms of the justices were determined by law to be three, six and nine years respectively, lots were drawn and the three years term fell to Judge Thatcher who, by virtue of this fact, became chief justice. His term of office expired January 13, 1880, when, declining a renomination, he resumed the practice of law with his old partner, Gast, leaving a judicial record as pure and unstained as that of any man who had ever sat upon the bench. During the meetings of the constitutional convention in the winter of 1875 and '76, he rendered valuable service as a member of important committees. He was chairman of the committee on the legislature and legislation, and was a member of those on judiciary, public and private corporations and congressional and legislative apportionments. Ever since his advent into the state he has been identified with nearly every public enterprise, and his influence was always exerted toward developing the resources of the state and its institutions. He was prominently connected with the Pueblo and Salt Lake Railroad company and the Pueblo and Arkansas Valley Railroad company, which latter company is now leased to the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe company, of which he and his partner have ever since been the solicitors. Judge Thatcher was a member of the first town council of Pueblo. He has been twice married, the first time in Pueblo, March 2, 1870, to Miss Ella J. Snyder, of Perry county, Pa., who died July 19, 1875. One child born in December, 1871, was the result of the union. July 16, 1879, he married Sallie B. Ashcom, of Bedford, Pa., by whom he had one son, born in 1881. The record of Judge Thatcher's life is that of a useful and busy one, filled with honor and respect of his fellow citizens during short measure. A learned jurist said of him: "As a jurist Mr. Thatcher ranks high. Well educated and richly endowed by nature his career as chief justice was satisfactory to the bar and people. During his term important questions arose incident to the transition from a territorial to a state government and from the common law to a state code of practice. The opinions of Judge Thatcher on these and other important questions were recognized by the bar and people as clear, forcible and correct solutions of the questions involved, and many of them will stand as leading cases in the jurisprudence of the state." Judge Thatcher's remains will arrive in Pueblo Monday.

Thatcher, John A.
John A. Thatcher - Brandon Bell - August 22, 1913 - John A. Thatcher Dead - Pueblo Millionaire was Pioneer of Colorado - Interested in Many Enterprises, Reputed to be Worth $25,000,000 to $40,000,000 - Pueblo - John A. Thatcher, multi-millionaire and pioneer directly interested in many Colorado financial and commercial enterprises, died at his home here. Although he had been sick for some time, his death came suddenly. He passed an easy night and was sitting up in a chair when he gasped, pressed his hand to his side and expired before he could be relieved from the unexpected attack. John A Thatcher and his brother, M.D. Thatcher, are reputed to be worth between $25,000,000 and $40,000,000. They are interested in practically the same institutions and it is difficult to separate their affairs to arrive at a conservative estimate of the dead man's estate. He owned stock in numerous banks in eastern and southern Colorado, shares in irrigation enterprises and bank buildings and much real estate throughout the state. Mr. Thatcher was seventy-seven years old and was born in Perry county, Pennsylvania, August 25, 1836. He came to Colorado fifty years ago in a prairie schooner. He soon took high rank among the energetic men of the period and all his life has been recognized as an ambitious man of great business and executive ability, as far seeing financier and a state builder of conservative beliefs.

Thatcher, Mahlon D. Sr.
Mahlon D. Thatcher – Telluride Daily Journal – February 22, 1916 – Mahon Thatcher Dies in Pueblo – Fortune Estimated at $50,000,000 – Pueblo, Feb. 22 – Mahlon Thatcher, one of the most prominent and widely known men in Colorado, died at his home here this morning at the age of 76 years. Mr. Thatcher has been sick for several weeks and was unable to recover from his attack of illness. A case of La Grippe which seized him several weeks ago caused a general breakdown from which the aged man was unable to recover. Thatcher is reputed to be Colorado's wealthiest citizen. He was an official of and interested in strings of banking institutions throughout Colorado, New Mexico, and Montana, making his headquarters in this city. His private fortune is today estimated at close to $50,000,000. Thatcher came to Colorado about 50 years ago and at that time was practically penniless. Del Norte San Juan Prospector – February 26, 1916 – Thatcher is Dead – Colorado's Richest Citizen Passes Away at Pueblo – His Wife, Son and Three Daughters at Bedside – Was Identified With Almost Every Line of Business – Pueblo, Colo. – Mahlon D. Thatcher, generally considered to be the richest man in Colorado, and since pioneer days a central figure in the industrial and financial growth of the Rocky Mountain region, died at his home here today. His wife, son, and three daughters were at the bedside. Mr. Thatcher, who was 76 years old, had been ill six weeks, and during the last few days his death had been expected at any time. Earlier in the morning it was announced from his home that, although he had regained consciousness he was too weak to give any sign that he recognized his son, who is expected to carry on the enormous financial affairs found by Mr. Thatcher and his brother the late John A. Thatcher. His illness began with a nervous breakdown, which soon developed into uremic poisoning. As the illness continued, a general weakening of all bodily organs except the heart and lungs developed, but due to the tremendous power of these, hope was held out that he would recover until a few days ago. The remarkable vitality of the man whose business acumen was a foundation of much of the prosperity of the entire West, from Chicago to the coast, kept him alive. Mr. Thatcher owned nineteen banks and many other large properties. His interests were almost unbelievably wide. His capital is thought to have furnished financial bulwarks to more than a hundred establishments. Mr. Thatcher came to Colorado in 1865, without money or influence, and by a combination of pluck, energy, and rare ability, erected a financial structure throughout several states. Estimates on his wealth range from $10,000,000 to $30,000,000, with $15,000,000 probably close to actual aggregate. The foundation of his wealth, which is widely diversified, was laid in the conservatism which the banker maintained in business affairs. Though his capital backed scores of successful enterprises, his investments were never speculative. Silverton Standard – February 26, 1916 – M. D. Thatcher, Colorado's Greatest Banker, Dies at Pueblo – Mahlon D.

The news of his death was received by his old time friend and associate, Cashier John H. Werkheiser of the First National bank of this city, Tuesday morning, by the following wire, which in a way also explains the future policy to be followed by the heirs. The message said, "M. D. Thatcher passed away at 10:30 this morning. The sons of John A. and M. D. Thatcher will perpetuate the characteristic business policies of their honored fathers." The funeral was held Thursday afternoon at Pueblo at 2:00 o'clock at which time the bank in this city closed its doors and remained closed during the remainder of the day as a mark of respect to the memory of its late distinguished and honored president and founder.

Theuerkauff, August
August Theuerkauff – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – September 7, 1876 – Four Men Killed by Foul Air in Gilpin County – The Central Register says that on Tuesday morning, August 20, about half-past ten o'clock, a boy about fourteen years old, named Fred Theuerkauff, descended into the Gray mine, long abandoned, in Lake gulch, the shaft being about seventy-five feet deep, to examine it with a view of seeing whether it could be worked. Being absent for a longer time than seemed necessary, or was expected, his brother August (the family living near by) and his father went to look for him. August at once descended into the shaft, and also being detained a long time, the father became alarmed for his safety, and himself went down. The mother and daughter knowing what had occurred, became frightened in turn and aroused the neighborhood. Among the volunteers was John Cox, an old miner, who took a rope and went to the bottom of the shaft. He soon called for more rope, which was given him. The men on the surface hearing nothing further, pulled up the rope, when it was discovered that all four men were at the bottom and probably stifled by bad air. No more volunteers could be obtained, and a courier was sent to Central City for assistance and means to inject pure air in the shaft, so that the bodies might be recovered. Robert Hastle spread the alarm in town, and soon a number of citizens were mounted and left for the scene of the disaster, Dr. Aduddle and Wohlgesinger, Thos. Mullen, J. D. Wood and others accompanying him. Arriving at the shaft, hose was inserted into the shaft with a large bellows attached, and fresh air pumped in. Mr. Mullen then called for volunteers to descend and recover the bodies. A dozen at once stepped forward, Wm. C. Miller was selected to make the descent. He took a rope with him, attached it to the body of Fred Theuerkauff, Sr., and gave the order to hoist, when the dead and the living came out together. Wm. Batchelder then descended, and in due time he, with the body of A. Theuerkauff, were raised to the surface. Mr. Leary was the third volunteer, and brought out Fred Theuerkauff, Jr. Charles Batchelder was the fourth volunteer, and came out with the body of John Cox. The physicians did everything in their power to resuscitate the unfortunate victims, but without avail. They had evidently died almost instantly after reaching the bottom of the shaft. The scene at the opening was almost heartrending as the corpses were brought up. The coroner's inquest was subsequently held and a verdict rendered that the deceased came to their death by the effects of foul air, as above described. Mr. Cox had been married but a short time, and leaves a young wife to mourn his loss.

Thomas, J. J.
J. J. Thomas - The Pueblo Chieftain - September 23, 2001 - Cemetery Ghosts Tell Stories of Pueblo's Past By James Amos - "A Walk Through History" at the Pueblo Pioneer Cemetery. - Saturday marked the fourth year of the living history event, sponsored by the Pueblo Parks and Recreation Department and the Pueblo Pioneer Cemetery Committee. Further down the cemetery trail, Tom Cummings portrayed one-time Pony Express rider J.J. Thomas. Thomas was born in 1837 and worked as a teamster in the Army in southern Kansas before he moved to Colorado to help built a stage stop. When the Oak Creek stage stop east of Denver was finished, Thomas and his friend were hired to be Pony Express riders and were the first in the area .But Thomas, too, caught gold fever and spent a cold and hungry time in the mountains before joining a Colorado unit going to the Civil War. Thomas thought he would be shipped east to fight, but instead stayed in the West and was part of the battle at Glorietta Pass in New Mexico. Area historian Eleanor Fry said, the battle sprang from a plan by the South to take over the Southern part of the Western states, including some of Colorado's gold fields. Thomas's Union Army unit "headed them off at the pass" Fry said. Thomas also was part of a unit sent to recover materials stolen by Indians in a raid near Santa Fe, Cummings said. The unit trailed the Indians nearly; to Amarillo, Texas, and there recovered 94 mules without a fight. Thomas' fortunes took a turn upward when he returned to Pueblo and, with, partners, built a toll bridge across the Arkansas River, ran a hotel and sold vegetables he grew where the current Midtown Shopping Center stands. With his economic success, the former horse-feed hauler hung around with one of the Thatcher banking brothers, became postmaster, county treasurer and even represented the area in Colorado's second state assembly. Thomas died in 1911 and had five children, although two died when they were young. See complete article listed under George Gilbert.

Mary lived her life with spunk and determination to do what she set her mind to do. Mary was very gifted and talented with her hands and has left many beautiful creations with those she loved. She was an especially talented seamstress and enjoyed making her granddaughters look like princesses with the wonderful dresses she created for them. She shared this talent and was always eager to teach those who wanted to learn this craft. Mary loved to garden, and her family and friends looked forward to receiving the rewards of her hard work as she would share her delicious tomatoes and was always eager to share cuttings of the most beautiful flowers from her garden. During the summer season, it was rare to leave her home without being handed a rose to take along. She enjoyed playing with and teasing her grandchildren; she gave each and every one a special pet name. She enjoyed the time she spent visiting with her friends talking about her next project or her most recent yard sale treasure. Mary also loved her pets, and was never without some cuddly creature in her life. Mary will be sadly missed but delightfully remembered.

Thombs, who for nearly twenty years was superintendent of the state insane asylum and formerly president of the Colorado State Medical association, died at his home in this city at 12:45 o'clock this morning of a complication of diseases. Dr. Thombs was 63 years old and is survived by a wife and one daughter. He was a veteran of the civil war and served during the entire four years in an Illinois regiment. He came to Colorado in 1856, and until 1879 pursued the practice of his profession with marked success. He was appointed superintendent of the asylum in 1879 by Governor Gilpin. He resigned in 1899 as the result of an investigation into the conduct of the asylum started at the instigation of a former employee which brought to light the story of an illegitimate child which was born to a patient within the asylum and died on the asylum grounds. Aside from this Dr. Thombs' management of the asylum was pronounced satisfactory. Above was clipped from Denver's Post of yesterday. Mrs. Thombs has several sisters who are well known in this section, Mrs. H. C. Bollinger, Mrs. Charles Wigglesworth and Mrs. Lieutenant Waters.

That it was later exposed as a prank photo of a "UFO" he carved from a bar of soap, always brought a smile when he retold the story.

Thompson, Rose E.
Rose E. Thompson - Yampa Leader - May 14, 1909 - After an illness extending over a period of more than six years, death came last Saturday night to Mrs. John W. Thompson, wife of the foreman of the Yampa section crew on the Moffat road. Although practically in an invalid since Christmas, 1902, when an attack of the grippe left her in the clutches of the dread disease, consumption, Mrs. Thompson had been able to attend to the duties of her household until some four weeks before her death, when an illness came on from which there could be no hope of recovery. Mr. Thompson and his family have been residents of Yampa since the Moffat road was first completed to this point last September, but on account of her delicate health, Mrs. Thompson had rarely left her home, and had made very few acquaintances here. But all who had met either Mr. or Mrs. Thompson had found them to be very pleasant, and in their hour of trouble many neighbors came to the assistance of the family, endeavoring to do everything possible to relieve their sorrow. The funeral services were held at the Congregational church on Monday afternoon. Rev. G. A. Ellis, the pastor, in the course of his discourse, speaking touchingly of the fact that the deceased and the bereaved husband had been lifelong friends and companions, having lived on adjoining farms from the time they were three years old until their marriage. Rose E. Brown was born in Indiana, where her parents resided until she was three years of age, when they moved to Ray County, Missouri. Here she was married in 1891 to John W. Thompson, and four children came to bless the union, of whom one died in early childhood. Mrs. Thompson united with the Baptist church at Excelsior Springs, Mo., in 1896, and she remained true to her faith until the last. In recent years she had at times suffered untold agony, but at all times she bore her pain bravely and with the utmost patience. The family moved to Colorado in 1903, locating first at Pueblo and have been residents of Routt County since August of last year, when Mr. Thompson came to Egeria, to take charge of that section of the Moffat road. The husband and three children, Eva aged 16, Paul, aged 11 and Jewell, aged 9, are left to mourn the death of a loving mother. The mother of the deceased is living in Missouri, as are two sisters and a brother.

Thompson, W.
Engineer W. Thompson – Durango Wage Earner – August 17, 1905 – Silverton, Aug. 12. – The regular passenger and mail train from Red Mountain to Silverton, met with an accident about a half mile above the Silver Ledge mine, or about nine miles from Silverton.  Coming down grade the engine tipped over to the bluff side of the road, catching the engineer, W. Thompson, crushing him to death.  The fireman saw the engine tipping and stepped out on the lower or canon side and saved himself.  Had the engine tipped the other way the train would have rolled into the canon below and great loss of life could not have been averted.  Only the engine left the track and no one else was injured the slightest.  Thompson was an old-time engineer, for years in the employ of the Rio Grande.  He leaves a wife and seven children residing here, where they have resided for 18 months.  He came from Chama to Silverton, and been in Pueblo and elsewhere along the system.  The Red Mountain road, known as the "Rainbow Route," scales some of the highest points banded by rails in the Rockies, and winds its way in cliffs and clouds, around tortuous curves and over rugged canons and steeps.  This is the first serious accident in nearly 20 years on the route.  Engineer Thompson had a daughter who is working at the Mountain View hotel, and when the news was communicated to her by phone this morning she threw up her hands and screamed with anguish.  The young lady is known among her friends as "Zee."

Thorp, Charles

Thorpe, Charles
Charles Thorpe - Leadville Daily Herald - April 10, 1884 - Gubernatorial Mercy - Governor Grant Extends Murderer Pettite's Lease of Existence a Few Days - The Crime for Which the Object of Executive Clemency was Sentenced to Death - Denver, April 9 - Today Governor Grant granted a respite of twenty days to Edward P. Pettite, who was sentenced to be hanged at Trinidad next Saturday, in order to allow the supreme court to consider the question of granting supersideas. The above dispatch was among those flashed over the Western Union wires last night, and it is rendered all the more interesting by the fact that it is the first opportunity Governor Grant has been afforded to exercise his executive clemency in the case of a condemned prisoner. The crime for while Pettite was sentenced to hang was fully detailed in yesterday's Tribune. He and his victim, Charles Thorpe, were saloon keepers at Starkville, in Las Animas County. It seems that on the twenty-sixth of last January the two men were in each others' company for some little time, and visited several saloons together. About 5 o'clock in the afternoon they went into Pettite's place to take a drink, and the proprietor went behind the bar to serve the liquor. At the time there was a crowd of men in the saloon, numbering in all about fifteen. The glasses were produced and Pettite started to pour out Thorpe's drink, when the latter protested, saying he did not want to mix his drinks. Petite made no reply, and apparently paid no attention to the objection, when suddenly Thorpe began to take off his coat as though he wanted to fight. Hardly had he succeeded in clearing his arms when Pettite coolly raised a revolver and fired at him. The shot entered from the left side, toward the rear, immediately under the heart. Thorpe fell on his face, and another shot was fired, when the men in the saloon rushed upon Pettite, and a scuffle ensued to get the weapon from the murderer's clutch. In the melee another chamber was emptied, but without doing any damage, as the ball lodged in the ceiling. Pettite was at once placed in custody, and Thorpe, who was still conscious, was removed to his own home. There medical aid was summoned, but it was soon found that the wounded man was beyond human skill. When the examination was concluded he was informed of his fate and at once he disposed of his property and prepared for death. He expired the same night. At the trial of Pettite no good reasons could be given for the shooting, and the jury brought in a verdict of guilty of murder, with premeditation and malice aforethought. The court subsequently pronounced the sentence of death and stated the time for his execution of Saturday next. Counsel for the murderer at once set about overthrowing the verdict and sentence of the court, and on grounds of technical irregularities applied for a writ of supersedeas, with the success detailed in the above dispatch. Pettite's attorney is James M. John, well known in southern Colorado as an able jurist.

Thurston, Marion Alice
Marion Alice Thurston - Colorado Springs Gazette - May 10, 2006 - Born in Cokedale, CO., Marion Alice Thurston was eldest child of the coke mine's accountant. Her father, Nils Johnson, had moved West for his health, and there wed Elsie Eakins, daughter of a pioneer who traveled to Colorado by covered wagon in 1873. Marion helped raise her two siblings after her father's early death, moving with her mother to her grandmother's Pueblo home in 1922. She remembered many accounts of her grandmother's pioneer life, becoming oral historian for her family's stories. While attending nursing school in Pueblo, Marion met Harold Thurston who won her heart by proposing that she "be the mother of his little monkeys." Marion spent most of her life in nursing-related fields, finishing her career at Memorial Hospital. Always involved with her children's activities, she was a Brownie troop leader and cookie baker extraordinaire. Quite creative, she sewed and embroidered many projects now treasured as family heirlooms. Marion's Irish wit leaves her descendants with many wonderful stories to share about her. Marion was happy that her daughters had opportunities that were not available to women during her youth. Her four children, Jo Leitch, David Thurston, Sally Thurston and Susan Thurston, as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, will long remember her constant words of encouragement and praise. Marion never forgot the hardships that her ancestors endured in order to settle in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. As a First Presbyterian Church member for 58 years, Marion found her true avocation in teaching Sunday School. In honor of that and in lieu of flowers, family members ask that donations in her memory be sent to Get-Set Preschool, First Presbyterian Church, 219 E. Bijou, Colorado Springs, CO 80903.

Tirey died at 99 years of age on Jan. 30, 2005, he had no family left so he willed his considerable fortune to 11 charities and one family. Huerfano County Historical Society was one of the charities along with a school, churches, and other local helping agencies. Society president Elaine Lenzini and other Society members spent several years arranging for the transfer of assets and setting up the accounts. The interest from that historical money is now going to rent the Washington School library for the Alton M. Tirey Local History Center. The public is invited to an open house and ribbon cutting by local officials Sunday, June 7, 2 to 4:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Tirey's interests were churches, the First National Bank of Walsenburg (now Community Banks of Colorado) where he was a shareholder and director, and ranching in the Gardner, Malachite, Redwing area. He also wanted that area of the county to be recognized and the artifacts and photos preserved. Now other generous donors have offered precious county records to the Center. The Jay Crook family donated all the old local newspapers from the late 1880's to the present and photographs. Huerfano County Commissioners gave old county ledgers. Here is where one can find the old brand books, land plats of ranches, and even lists of those dozens who needed whisky during prohibition "for medicinal purposes." A few school records, coroner's reports on mine accidents and tax rolls are in the mix. A special plaque is being designed to recognize major donors. Historians and genealogists and families may use these resources - at this time the Society asks only that you make a donation. Supplies to preserve these materials properly need to be purchased. By arranging with a Historical Society board member, access is available with volunteers to open up the center. No regular hours have been established as most members already volunteer at the Walsenburg Mining Museum or Francisco Fort in La Veta, now both open for the summer. The Society board aims to make this center one of the premier research centers in Southern Colorado. The decision to use the interest only, not the principal of Tirey's bequest, was made in a day-long session led by a professional facilitator from out of town. Present were some 30 representatives from the La Veta Town Board, private citizens from Walsenburg and La Veta, museum volunteers and historical society members. The decision was unanimous. The Huerfano County Historical Society members who may arrange use of the Center are Betty Elwell and Marna Brister from La Veta, Elaine Lenzini, Margaret Gleisberg, John Carlson, Carolyn Newman, Chris Landrum, Ben Ree, Marge Figal, Jerry Skrzynear and Jewel Geiger from Walsenburg. The Society would welcome more La Veta year-around board members. A Society member will be present during the research to assist the patron.

The Colorado DOC recognizes the ultimate price paid, dedication and loyalty of the following men: Thomas Tobin - June 26, 1899 - On June 26, 1899 Officer Thomas Tobin was stationed at Bridge Seven, a few miles below Florence, during the hunt for an escaped convict by the name of Charles Nichols. Nichols was serving a life sentence for the murder of the marshal of Victor, Colorado. In the darkness, one of the sheriff's posse shot Tobin in the center of his chest, thinking the man on the bridge was the escapee. Tobin was brought back to Canon City in a railroad car; he died a few days later on July 4, 1899. It was said that Tom Tobin was "a faithful and efficient officer; prompt, conscientious and reliable in all matters pertaining to his position, and ever ready to respond to the call of duty." Unfortunately, at the time of the tragic accident, no one at the bridge knew that Convict Nicholas had been recaptured and returned to the penitentiary. Officer Thomas Tobin was the son of Col. Tobin, a well-known government scout. Warden Hoyt was in office at the time.

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

Tolby, F. J.
Reverend F. J. Tolby – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 18, 1875 – The Tolby Murder – Examination of the Accused and Shooting of Cardenas – The examination of the parties charged with being principals or accessories to the murder of Rev. F. J. Tolby, was held at Cimarron on Wednesday before a magistrate. Several parties from Elizabethtown testified as to the statement made by Cardenas implicating Longwill, Mills and Donahoe, showing that no force was used and that he made the same statement to different parties at different times. The investigation was very full. The court held that there was not sufficient evidence against M. W. Mills and he was discharged. Donahoe and Cardenas were bound over to await the action of the grand jury. A large number of people from all over the country were in attendance, and the utmost order and quiet prevailed. A meeting was held and resolutions adopted expressive of their determination to put down crime, and also to maintain peace and good order at all times in the country. While Cardenas was being conveyed to the jail, in charge of two guards, a party of unknown men seized him and overpowered the guards, shot Cardenas through the head, killing him instantly. Longwill was not arrested, having evaded the officers and made good his escape. He is supposed to be in Santa Fe. The Longwill alluded to above appears to be Dr. R. H. Longwill, of Cimarron, who is well known in this city. If, as stated, he has evaded the officers and left the town, the thing has an ugly look for him, but what interest he could have had in the murder of an itinerant preacher is beyond our comprehension. It may be when the excitement cools down a little that he will return and explain matters.

Tomsic, Albert T.
Albert T. Tomsic - Fort Morgan Times - August 2, 2005 - DPS bus chief kept wheels turning - Albert T. Tomsic, who died July 13 at age 85, supervised the Denver Public Schools' transportation division during the raucous years between 1969 and 1974, when escalating fury over court-ordered busing resulted in buses being bombed and routinely vandalized. Some of the most aggressive hostility took place in 1970, a year after a Denver district court judge ruled that only enforced busing could remedy the inequities in Denver's tacitly segregated schools. On Feb. 6, 1970, busing opponents planted dynamite in the DPS transportation service center, destroying 38 buses and 8 other district vehicles, leaving 30 percent of the fleet ruined or extensively damaged. Tomsic, who rushed to the facility from his home that night, learned that the blast missed the incoming shift of mechanics by 5 minutes. Tomsic was born in Primero, a now-defunct coal mining camp town west of Trinidad. During World War II, he was trained as an Army airplane mechanic, a skill that translated readily to automobile repair when he moved to Walsenburg after the war ended. Shortly afterward, he moved to Denver and hired on as a DPS bus driver. He transported special education students and formed close ties with them. Often, he passed along his son's outgrown clothing and shoes. He went on to become a DPS mechanic and then rose to supervise the transportation division, a promotion that Tomsic, who never graduated from high school, cherished for the rest of his life. When the court-ordered busing began, Tomsic worked longer hours at the garage. He worried about the students riding the buses, and about the drivers, who faced ugly epithets from angry parents. "I don't think Dad fully understood why there would be so much anger about busing if those in power felt it was ultimately going to be good for the children," said Tomsic's daughter, Aljean Tucker. "It was a pretty scary time for my dad and the people who worked on the buses. Would a bus driver be hurt? Would kids on the bus be hurt? Buses were being vandalized all the time by angry parents. It wasn't just this one bombing incident." Busing opponents forced the issue up to the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1973, the court ordered the desegregation of all Denver schools. Citywide busing began the next year, and continued until 1995 when chief U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch released city schools from mandatory busing. Survivors include son James Tomsic of Huntington, Conn.; daughter Aljean Tucker of Colorado Springs; sisters Bertha Meese of Chicago, Ill., and Martha Villano of Northglenn; four grandchildren; and six great- grandchildren. His wife, Emogene M. Tomsic, preceded him in death.

Torrence, Hugh
Hugh Torrence – Meeker Herald – May 22, 1909 – Hugh Torrence – A telegram was received last Friday, by L. B. Walbridge, announcing the death of Hugh Torrence at the Work sanitarium, Pueblo. Mr. Walbridge, who has been conservator of the Torrence estate, accompanied the remains to Galesburg, Ill., where they were buried. All are familiar with the mental break down which came on Mr. Torrence a few years ago and the news of his demise was not unexpected. However, all old-timers in Rio Blanco and Routt counties will regret to hear of his passing away. He was a pioneer in northwestern Colorado; prominent in the business and political world; of the highest integrity and greatly esteemed by all who knew him. Meeker Herald - May 22, 1909 – Mr. Hugh Torrence, the son of Hugh and Anna Torrence, was born near Connellsville, Pa., October 22, 1843. He was a cousin of the late General Joseph Torrence of Chicago, whose father James was an elder brother of Hugh Torrence, Sr. The boyhood days of Mr. Torrence were spent in Pennsylvania and Illinois. In 1867 he located in Johnson county, Mo., and in 1874 he became a resident of Colorado and a pioneer of Yampah river valley. He first lived near old Yampah, later at Lay, and in 1882 located at Axial, Colo., and formed a partnership in the cattle business with Mr. Charles J. Hulett. This partnership continued until the death of the latter in 1903, and was successful and agreeable, because of the business qualifications of the two men, their congenial natures, and their brotherly treatment and affection for each other. They were widely known among cattle raisers and dealers, on account of their ability in raising, buying and selling cattle. In an early day they purchased cattle in Utah, and in later years in Texas, New Mexico and Oregon. Mr. Torrence departed this life May 14, 1909. His body was taken by Hon. L. B. Waldbridge to Galva, Ill., where it was laid to rest by the grave of his father and mother. Besides hosts of friends who mourn his death, the deceased leaves the following relatives to whom he was dear: Sisters, Mrs. Eliza McGillard and Miss Emma Torrence of Fountain City, Ind.; niece, Miss Pearl Witteman, Blairstown, Mo.; nephews, Messrs. C. E. McGillard and Forest McGillard of Fountain City, Ind., G. E. Witteman of Chicago, and C. H. Wittman formerly of Ringsted, Iowa. Mr. Torrence was a believer in Christ, an attendant at church service, and a reader of the Bible. His spirit has gone to "God who gave it." Let us not sorrow as those who have no hope, but let us look forward to meeting him in heaven, where "death shall be no more; neither shall there be mourning nor crying, nor pain any more." The following words of Mr. Torrence, penned years ago, may be used as a message to every person who reads them: "It is only a matter of time with the best of us, and a short time at that. Let us live in accordance and prepare for a better world." The relatives of Mr. Torrence desire to express their gratitude to Messrs. Hulett and Walbridge for their kindness and assistance in managing the affairs of the deceased during his long illness. Note: Hugh Torrence Jr. was buried in Galva Cemetery, near Galva, Illinois. Steamboat Pilot - May 26, 1909 – Hugh Torrence, for years one of the best known cattlemen in Routt county and also one of the wealthiest, died last week at the insane asylum in Pueblo, where he has been confined for several years. The body was taken east for burial, accompanied by Boyd Walbridge, who has been conservator of the estate since Mr. Torrence has been incapable of attending to business. Routt County Sentinel – May 28, 1909 – Hugh Torrence Dies at Asylum – Hugh Torrence died at the state insane asylum at Pueblo on Friday, May 14. Representative Walbridge, conservator of the estate, left Meeker, Saturday, May 15, to attend to the burial and at the request of friends of the deceased took the remains to Galesburg, Illinois, for burial. Mr. Torrence was one of the old pioneers of Routt County and twice a candidate on the Republican ticket for this District for representative. He was considered the leading cattle man of Routt County until his infirmity about four years ago, when he became insane and was sent to the asylum for treatment and Representative L. Boyce Walbridge was appointed by the court as conservator of his person and estate. Mr. Walbridge has continued his cattle and agricultural interests at Axial, Colo., since his infirmity, at the request of the heirs of the lunatic, and at the date of his death takes charge of the remains and buries them at their request at Galesburg, the home of the deceased before his advent and residence in Routt county. Yampa Leader - May 28, 1909 - The meeker Herald has received news of the death of Hugh Torrence at Pueblo on May 14. Hr. Torrence was a pioneer in Axial basin and the firm of Hulett & Torrence, of which he was a member, was one of the largest owners of land and livestock in that portion of the county. His health broke down several years ago and he has since been cared for the Work sanitarium.

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

Trujillo, Joe
Joe Trujillo - Walsenburg World-Independent - December 16, 1932 - A coroner's jury to investigate the death of Joe Trujillo, who was killed in a South Main Street pool hall Monday night, will meet at court house this Saturday. Trujillo, it is alleged, went to the pool hall to collect money and a quarrel ensued and Trujillo used his gun firing several shots. Odak, the pool hall proprietor, grappled with him and in the melee Trujillo was hit over the head with a billiard cue or a billiard ball, crushing the skull, and he died at his home from the injuries. Odak is in the county jail and so is Dan Radulavich awaiting the investigation of the jury. It is not known which of the men, or if it was either that gave the fatal blow. The public will await with interest the evidence that may be brought out at the inquest.
