Together, they forged a marriage built on happiness, love of family, hard work, enjoyable travel and an appreciation for life. Gilbert passed in 1997. To all who knew her, Ada possessed an indomitable spirit, a hearty sense of humor, a great talent for creating delicious Italian food and a zest for life that was unmatched. Ada loved tending her beautiful home and lovely gardens, working on them until the evening that her time came. Ada, and the example by which she lived her life, will be profoundly missed.

Haire, Gilbert
Gilbert Haire - Pueblo Chieftain - October 2, 1997 - Third-generation patriot Gilbert Haire dies at 73 - Gilbert Haire once said he hoped the end of the soldiers in his family might mean the end of war. Haire died Sept. 23 at age 73. He had emphysema. Haire and his wife, Ada, had no children, so his family's long record of military service came to an end. Although he was quick to talk about his father and grandfather - his father served in World War I and his grandfather in the Civil War - Haire was modest about his own military record, according to longtime friend and neighbor Steve Sanchez. "He was a career Army man," Sanchez said. "He retired in 1962 (after 20 years). I don't have his DD214 (service record). I'm waiting for it from the Department of Defense record archives in St. Louis, Mo. It could take four to six weeks to get." Last Veterans Day, Sanchez started collecting information about his friend to put with the voluminous scrapbooks Haire had compiled on his father and grandfather. "He was modest, but I think it's important for kids to see the service given to the country," Sanchez said. "He was a very, very patriotic man from a very patriotic family. He was always quoting President Kennedy: `Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."' Sanchez does know that Haire first served in Panama. "He used to tell me they would take supplies up the hill on mules in the jungle. His job was to listen for enemy aircraft or vessels approaching on the water." Haire served in Europe from 1945 to 1947, and then at White Sands in New Mexico. "He was traveling to White Sands and stopped on Lake Avenue to get some fuel and something to eat. He had never heard of it before. He wanted to make Pueblo his home and hoped to get stationed here." But before he could move to Pueblo, Haire served in Italy - where he met his wife - in France, at Fort Benning, Ga., and in Korea. He spent the last years of his career - 1960 to 1962 - as a liaison with the Army Reserve in Pueblo. As a young man, Gilbert added an "e" to the end of the family name so his age couldn't be traced and he could enlist in the Army a year early, Sanchez said. His father Thomas' name was spelled "Hair" and his grandfather Jeremiah's was "Hair" or "Hare," depending on who was spelling it. Thomas Hair was a gunner in Company B of the Second Machine Gun Battalion, which was attached to Company F of the 16th Infantry. He received five citations, and was awarded the Silver Star and the Bronze Star with an oak leaf cluster. He made history when he helped carry the body of James Gresham, the first American to die in World War I, back behind the lines at Artols in Lorraine, France. Thomas Hair died in 1966. Jeremiah Hair served in the First Cavalry of Kentucky from 1861 to 1865. He fought at the Battle of Gettysburg, and his obituary said he was a friend to Gen. Ulysses Grant. He was invited to attend the 75th anniversary observance of Gettysburg, but was not able to attend. His son, Thomas, went in his place, and a commemorative medal for the occasion was found years later among Thomas' things. The scrapbooks devoted to Jeremiah's life and military service include microfilm copies of pay chits from the Union Army and letterhead for the Supreme Tribe of Ben Hur, a fraternal organization to which he belonged. He died at age 99 in 1940.

Hamilton, Lewis
Rev. Father Lewis Hamilton - Central City Daily Register-Call - December 7, 1881 - Western News - Pueblo, December 6 - Rev. Father Lewis Hamilton, the veteran Presbyterian minister, who was injured at the union depot on Sunday last, as fully reported in your paper heretofore, died this evening at the union depot hotel from the effects of his injury. His remains will be sent east for burial. Central City Daily Register-Call - December 15, 1881 - A Pioneer Preacher - The Pueblo Chieftain has the following about one of the pioneer missionaries of Black Hawk: ' Rev. Levi Hamilton, who died last week on account of slipping on the platform and falling against a moving pilot locomotive, near the union depot, was one of the earliest of the pioneer preachers that came to Colorado in the far-off days, when it was a young, raw and undeveloped country. He followed in the wake of the adventurous immigrants of the famour (famous?) period of the Pike' s peak excitement relative to gold and silver. At that distant time, new-comers were astonished on their arrival at the same peak, to find it a center of such ' magnificent distances,'  and to learn that they must travel many miles farther before they could reach the shining object of their eager and costly quest. Rev. Mr. Hamilton proclaimed the gospel to some of these adventurers at Black Hawk, when that town was nothing but a rude mining camp, surrounded by strange, wild scenes of unsubdued, lonely nature. In missionary labor at the Black Hawk camp, he was successor of Rev. Warner, a venerated minister from Weedsport, New York.' 

Harlan, John
John Harlan - Trinidad Chronicle - February 24, 1903 - Little Boy Dragged To Death By A Frightened Horse - Las Animas County - John Harlan, twelve years old, meets a tragic death in Sunflower Valley. A shocking and deplorable accident occurred at the ranch of John Harlan, five miles east of Hoehne, about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Mr. Harlan's son, John, 12 years of age, and a younger brother had driven several horses into a corral for the purpose of catching two which they intended hitching up. John roped one of the animals, which became frightened and in circling about the rope was wound around the body and legs of the lad. The horse began running and dragged the boy for fully three-quarters of a mile before being caught. His head was battered and bruised beyond recognition and he was dead when reached. The body was also terribly bruised and the clothing torn into tatters. The funeral was held from the church in Hoehne at 1 o'clock this afternoon and interment was made in the cemetery north of Trinidad. Mr. and Mrs. Harlan have had more than their share of grief the past three years, this being the third child of theirs to meet with tragic death in that length of time. About a year ago a little daughter was drowned in a lake near the ranch, and two years before a baby boy fell out of the wagon and was instantly killed. The baby was in its mother's arms. The wagon was upset in a runaway and as the occupants tumbled out, the child's head struck a wheel, crushing the skull. The parents are heartbroken and they have the sincere sympathy of all in their third great affliction. They have three other children, two boys and a girl, all quite young.

Harmon, Kyle
Kyle Harmon - Colorado Springs Gazette - February 17, 2005 - 8 Die as Jet Crashes Near Pueblo - Circuit City Plane Was Trying to Land in Freezing Rain -Pueblo - Federal authorities today will start looking for the reasons a corporate jet crashed and burned Wednesday morning east of Pueblo Memorial Airport, killing all eight people on board. The victims were the pilot and co-pilot, four employees of Circuit City Stores Inc. of Richmond, Va., and two others. The identities of those killed hadn' t been released by late Wednesday. The twin-engine Cessna Citation C560 left Richmond on Wednesday morning en route to Irvine, Calif. It went down at 9:13 a.m. and burst into flames about five miles east of the Pueblo airport, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said. The crash site was near a dairy farm, west of the Pueblo Chemical Depot, where the military stores chemical weapons. The plane was attempting an instrument landing in freezing drizzle after filing a flight plan citing Pueblo as its destination, FAA spokesman Mike Fergus said. However, Pueblo County Sheriff Dan Corsentino said Pueblo was to be the aircraft' s second of two fuel stops. "Two witnesses said they heard loud popping," Corsentino said, adding that they didn' t actually see the crash. It was traveling with a companion aircraft, Corsentino said, which was 10 to 12 minutes behind it and landed safely. He did not identify who the second plane' s passengers were affiliated with but said some of them boarded commercial flights out of Denver later Wednesday to "return home." He did not give their destination. Sheriff' s deputies and investigators initially searched the site for survivors. When they found none, they cordoned off the site and waited for National Transportation Safety Board investigators. Pueblo Memorial Airport Manager Jerry Brienza said the airport has never experienced "a crash of this magnitude." "As far as I know, (the pilot) didn' t declare an emergency," Brienza said after talking to air traffic controllers. He described the weather at 900 feet as "broken sky," at 1,400 feet as "overcast" and said the wind was at 7 knots - about 8 mph. A small Mesa jet had just landed at the airport minutes before. "It' s not uncommon for aircraft to land safely in this weather," Brienza said. Circuit City confirmed on its Web site that a plane registered to the company had crashed in Colorado and had eight people on board, four of whom were employees of the company. None was an officer, the posting noted, adding no comment would be made pending notification of relatives. "Our thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones during their time of need," Circuit City CEO W. Alan McCollough said in a statement to the Associated Press. Circuit City owns about a half dozen stores along the Front Range and 50 stores within 100 miles of Irvine. The investigation will be conducted by an eight-member NTSB team from Washington, D.C., headed by chairman and CEO Ellen Engleman Conners. The team was to arrive in Colorado late Wednesday. NTSB teams are sent to multiple-fatality or air-carrier crashes. The crash site, which covered a half-mile radius, was bordered by sheriff' s and coroner' s vehicles who kept vigil over the wreckage and did not remove the bodies until federal authorities arrived. Sheriff' s spokesman Steve Bryant said late Wednesday a representative from a local funeral home was on the scene to remove the bodies. Note: There is a memorial stone honoring the plane crash victims in Chico Cemetery in Pueblo County, Colorado. None of the victims were buried there.

Haslee, Lorraine
Lorraine Mall Haslee - Huerfano World Journal - January 5, 2012 - Lorraine Mall Haslee, May 19, 1954 - November 30, 2011 - Lorraine Mall Haslee, who will be remembered by all whose lives she touched through her strength, benevolence, positive outlook and perseverance, died peacefully in her Minturn home Nov. 30 after a valiant battle with cancer. She was 57. A memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17 in the Vail Mountain School auditorium. A Colorado native, Lorraine was born May 19, 1954, in Walsenburg to Laura and John Mall. The youngest of seven children, the Mall family also cared for five cousins for 10 years until her mother died when Lorraine was only 12. A 1972 graduate of Walsenburg High School, Lorraine earned a degree in women's studies at the University of Colorado. While skiing on the slopes of Copper Mountain, she met Fred Haslee, whom she married in 1977. The couple settled in Minturn in 1979. Lorraine began her career as a librarian in Minturn in 1979, moving to the mid-valley library in Eagle-Vail a decade later. When that facility closed in 1991, Lorraine moved to the library located in the Avon City Market location and then onto the new Avon Library when it was completed. Thirteen years ago, she began her position as librarian at Vail Mountain School, where she worked until a week prior to her death. ' It was important for her to be at school, where she found such strength, joy and enthusiasm for life,'  explained her daughter, Laura. ' She watched children graduate that she had worked with from kindergarten through their entire school careers, which was a unique part of her job. ' Maggie and I have been so blessed to have a mother who was a mentor, an inspiration, an advocate, a best friend and a sounding board for us.'  Throughout her illness, Lorraine tried to maintain a positive attitude. Last March 2, after a particularly difficult treatment day, she wrote, "All in all it was a good day. Didn't have any reactions to new chemo drugs and I am tucked in bed typing away. Love you all and here's to spring flowers and hugs for loved ones!" Lorraine loved the holidays and captured that spirit by making gifts for her friends, said close friend Valerie Wegert. She lived her life with a sense of humor, grace and humility, focusing not so much on what she did, but how she did it. ' Lorraine's greatest attributes were her kindness and compassion for people,'  Wegert said. ' She had a wonderful sense of community, finding opportunities to make the lives of those around her better and challenging her family and friends to pay it forward. She encouraged everyone around her, knowing instinctively if you needed a hand, an ear to listen, or a shoulder to cry on.'  Lorraine generously gave her time and energy, leaving her imprint on numerous local organizations including: board member of Eagle Valley Community Fund Rummage Sale; a founder and board member of Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation; the Literacy Project's Spellabration; The Salvation Army's Adopt-a-Family project; Shaw Cancer Center volunteer; Little League volunteer umpire; the CERT Community Emergency Response Team and the American Red Cross, where she began volunteer training. In addition, she was a powerful force within her hometown of Minturn. There she volunteered for Minturn Community Day Cleanup; Minturn Youth Center; Minturn Senior Nutrition Center, fundraising chair for Minturn Medical Center; coordinator for Minturn Crafts Fair; Minturn July 4 celebration; served on the Home Rule Study Committee and secretary of the Home Rule Charter Commission; secretary-treasurer of Minturn Fire Department; served on the Minturn Planning and Zoning Board; and was chairperson for two years and was appointed to the Minturn Town Council, where she served almost two years. ' Lorraine helped create and strengthen the fabric of every community she touched,'  said Ben Talbot, a classmate of Lorraine's daughter Laura. ' She would want us to follow her lead and help others in whatever way we can.'  Lorraine also enjoyed hiking, snowshoeing, water skiing and any activity with her family. In addition to her husband, she is survived by daughters Laura Haslee (fiancΓ© Paul Goncalves) of Glendale, Ariz., and Maggie Haslee Connor (Sean) of Bellingham, Mass.; brothers Tom Mall of Roanoke, Va., and Louis Mall of Westport, Conn.; sisters Tess Mullarkey of Locust Valley, N.Y., Jeanette Mall of New York and Kathy Russell of Brick, N.J.; 17 nieces and nephews; and 10 great nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by sister Clara Donohoe. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made in Lorraine Haslee's memory to either Home Care and Hospice of the Valley, PO Box 1474, Edwards, CO 81632 or to the Lorraine Mall Haslee Scholarship Fund through Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation, PO Box 1977, Avon, CO 81620.

Denis began his teaching career in Trinidad in 1975 where he taught fifth- and sixth-grade band and junior high school band. He also assisted Duane Zanotelli with the Trinidad High School Marching Band. Throughout his career, he continued to teach band and also taught guitar class as well as high school and middle school choir. His bands received various awards and were a consistent superior band at large group contests. Several of his students were selected to honor bands and choirs. He taught nearly every sixth grader in Trinidad music appreciation. Those students, some of them well into their 40s, fondly called him ' Mr. Hawley,'  showing their respect and true admiration for him. He was a member of the Music Educators National Conference as well as Colorado Music Educators Conference. He served as treasurer of the Arkansas Valley Music League for many years and continued to do so after he retired. He was a member of Phi Beta Mu, a national band director fraternity, and was a past president of Colorado's chapter. He also served as an adjudicator for solo and ensemble contests.

Denis had been with the Trinidad Elks since 1984, the Exalted Ruler in 1985, a District Deputy in 1991 for 11 lodges in the South Colorado District and had been the Colorado State Organist for 24 years. Most recently, Denis became the director of the Trinidad Community Chorale, a group of local singers and musicians who performed and dedicated two concerts to him just three days after his death. Denis would have wanted the show to go on. Denis could be seen most Saturdays and Sundays playing the organ during Mass at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. He became a Catholic in 2005. Denis was invited to many get-togethers, on one condition: That he bring his incredible homemade salsa and his delicious deviled eggs. He always obliged. Denis had many friends from his days of bartending at the Elks Club and Jujo' s. He had a joke for every occasion, most being of the junior high school variety. Whenever you spent time with Denis, you left the meeting feeling better. If you had a problem, he listened intently as a truly caring friend. He worked for the many years at Mullare-Murphy Funeral Home and made grieving families feel comfortable with his soothing style and genuine ability to help guide them through a difficult time. He is survived by his brother, Gary R. (Kathryn) Hawley, numerous nephews and nieces and special friend Michelle (Micki) Crichton.

Hayden, Charles
Charles Hayden - Huerfano Journal - February 2, 2012 - by Nancy Christofferson - The Jan. 29, 1941 issue of Walsenburg' s World-Independent carried some bad news. Former Walsenburg attorney and State Senator Charles Hayden was dead at the age of 69. Hayden was a member of two of Huerfano County' s pioneering families, and was born near Badito along the Huerfano River on July 25, 1872. He was one of the five children of Daniel Justin Hayden and the former Mary E. Withington, and he was very proud of his heritage and familial ties. His father, D.J., according to Charles, was born in Ohio in 1834 and went to work as a cabin boy on a steamboat plying the Mississippi River at a young age. In 1849, still according to his son, D.J. got the fever and joined the gold rush to California. This would have made him 15 years old. Charles wrote that his father did not make it all the way to California, however, and left the ship at Rio de Janeiro. From there D.J. walked across South America to Valparaiso, Chile. There he boarded another ship for the trip home, which was made via the Isthmus of Panama. What he really did for the missing years was not recorded, but he told Charles he' d arrived at the gold fields of Colorado when there was just one cabin at the future site of Denver in 1857. Mary Withington was born at Fort Des Moines in 1841, where her father was the gunsmith for the Sac and Fox Indian tribes. The family moved to Kansas in 1844 with the Sacs and Foxes when they were relocated there by the government. The Withingtons continued west in early days of the 1860s to settle in Huerfano County. Mary had at least two siblings, Albert and Kate, who made this move to Colorado. The Withingtons owned a ranch south of the Huerfano, not too far, about seven miles, from the ' stuttering Worthingtons,'  a name that has been confusing for historians tracing the Withingtons. Apparently the latter family came from England, and the ' stutterers'  were brothers Charles and Jim. They lived on the later Major Ranch in the 1870s and ' 80s, and the Withingtons lived farther north, nearer Badito. By the time the 1870 census was taken, the Withingtons had departed from Huerfano County. Mary had married D.J. in the mid 1860s, supposedly at Bent' s Old Fort, but obviously at Bent' s new fort, Big Timbers, since the former had been burnt to a crisp in 1852, and the latter lasted until 1866 when it was destroyed by a flood on the Arkansas River. Charles' s account has his mother riding the stagecoach along the old Santa Fe Trail to the fort, but not from where, and marrying in 1863. The couple then moved to Pueblo where they lived at the corner of Fourth and Santa Fe streets. Around 1864 they moved to the area around Badito on the Huerfano. Their home was between a quarter and a half mile upstream from Pino Plaza, or about halfway between the old communities of Badito and St. Mary. D.J. built a grist mill using water power from the Huerfano. The mill was three stories high and had a handmade shingle roof. Nearby he' d built a four room adobe house where Charles was born in 1875. Charles recalled people came from as far as New Mexico and the San Luis Valley to have their grain ground since it was the only commercial mill in the region. D.J. became county judge in 1869, probably by appointment, and served until 1872. After his mill fell down in the 1880s, possibly due to flooding, D.J. turned his hand to farming. This didn' t work out. His wife had begun teaching the local students, who had no school, so she may have held classes in the family home. She taught in Spanish and for second year students she introduced English. She taught for seven or eight years. Charles learned to speak Spanish well from his mother teaching the language and his playmates speaking it. He also remembered Ute neighbors when a reservation for Ouray' s people was located nearby. The 1870 census shows Daniel as 34 years old, Mary as 27 and their only child, Dora, as five. Living with them at the time was Mary' s sister Kate, 19, who in 1873 married Charles Otto Unfug [Sr.] of Walsenburg. In 1884 D.J. was elected county judge, and served until 1887. D.J. meanwhile kept prospecting for the gold he' d failed to find in Denver. He didn' t find it here, either. In 1892 he took note of an odd geologic formation on Greenhorn Mountain not far from his home. He started digging, and in 1895 discovered tin. The Hayden Mining Company was incorporated in 1895 with $1,200,00 in capital. This didn' t work out all that well either, though work continued for a few more years, and ore was extracted. Charles claimed to be a graduate of Walsenburg' s high school before there was a high school. How ever he did it, possibly through tutoring from his mother, he entered the University of Colorado and graduated, then completed law school and passed his bar exam in 1899. However, he went to Saguache and became a Spanish teacher instead of hanging up his shingle. In 1901 he returned to Walsenburg to be city attorney. In 1903 he married Freda Flebbe in Denver. Freda had spent time in Walsenburg as a saleslady for Unfug Mercantile and as a teacher at the Beeville School near town. The couple had two daughters, Eleanor Louise who never married and one with no discernible first name who married Mont Cambier. In 1904 D.J. died at the home of his daughter Mrs. Unfug in Walsenburg and his wife followed him in 1918. They are buried in Masonic Cemetery though Daniel has no marker. Charles made his home in Walsenburg, living in a brick house opposite the old Methodist Church on Capitol Hill. He soon became county attorney and also served as deputy district attorney. He was elected state representative on the Republican ticket in 1908, and state senator in 1910. His district covered Huerfano, Conejos and Costilla counties. He was re-elected and served at least until 1916. During that time he was still county attorney and maintained offices in the courthouse. After his state and county service he continued his private legal practice through the 1920s and ' 30s. Charles' s older sister Dora married August T. Unfug in 1886. They had several children, including Dan, Fritz and August Jr., before August Sr. died in 1924. Dora and her youngest son, August Jr., moved to Lakeside, CA, where in December 1940 they died in their home. Rumor said they had been overcome by leaking gas. A month later Charles, on Jan. 28, 1941, was found dead in his car parked near the old Ideal Mine south of Walsenburg. He had died of carbon monoxide poisoning, by his own hand.

Hedges, C. R.
C. R. Hedges - Pueblo Chieftain - March 24, 1992 - Gravestones in Pueblo Yard Bear Hint of History, Mystery - Two tombstones in yard of house at Eighth and Greenwood may get double takes from passers-by, but don't mark graves. When John McBride takes his early morning walks Downtown, he's often impressed by the neighborhood detail he notices that he never sees from a car. None more so than the two grave markers behind the white frame house at Eighth and Greenwood in the heart of Pueblo. They stand side by side - a 4-foot-tall gray granite shaft and a foot-high tan sandstone square - almost obscured from sight by a bush. Whose headstones are they, he wondered. Where did they come from? Do they mark graves? The answers are both simple and impossible. Legends on both tell names and dates. The gray granite shaft was on the property when Duncan Henrikson bought the property several years ago from a Missouri man who had inherited it. The legend reads: C. R. Hedges; May 19, 1858; Feb. 4, 1903; Here lies a Woodman of the World. "It used to be sitting closer to the house, but I have no idea where it came from," Henrikson said. Neighborhood gossip suggests the actual grave is under the back porch of the house. No way, said Henrikson. There's a basement under the house. It is the small headstone that is heart-wrenching. And it is a treasure to the present occupant of the house, Nancy Ellen. She has owned the marker for a decade since she found it at one of the many antique and collectibles sales she attends. The tragedy is etched on three sides of the small tan headstone. Three children; three deaths in three months: Our Baby; Died Jan. 20, 1881; Age 7 Days. James Died; April 3, 1881; Age 8 Years. Albert A., son of A.C. and E.A. Randall; Died March 24, 1881; Age 6 Years. Historian Joanne Dodds said such markers were common in early days. "It was some contagious disease," she said. "You see it in the spring and in the winter. Winters were hard and strength was down." It's easy to understand why people were terrified of contagious diseases such as small pox, she said. "It wiped out families, especially children. Ms. Ellen has no idea where the children's gravestone originated. "I always supposed it was from somewhere around here, but I just don't know," she said.

Hedges, Francis L.
Francis ' Ted'  L. Hedges - Pueblo Chieftain - September 23, 2010 - Francis ' Ted'  L. Hedges, 85, passed away Sept. 19, 2010.

He also is survived by numerous nieces and nephews throughout the country. Ted was a Navy veteran of WWII, serving on the USS Burns. He retired from the Colorado State Hospital in 1979 and volunteered at the Pueblo Chamber of Commerce for 20 years. He enjoyed raising and selling organic produce and was a model train enthusiast. He was a member of the Masonic Silver State Lodge No. 95 and American Legion Post No. 2. Ted was an avid dog lover, adopting many strays and he enjoyed watching the Broncos. He had numerous neighborhood friends as well as his friends at his credit union and the Chamber of Commerce who were helpful and treated him like family. Ted was a well loved, opinionated man and will be sadly missed. Memorial service, 2 p.m. Monday, Imperial Funeral Home. Inurnment, Imperial Memorial Gardens with military honors by the Pueblo Veterans Ritual Team.

Hedglin, Brian Joseph
Brian Joseph Hedglin - Pueblo Chieftain - July 17, 2012 - Colorado murder suspect tried to steal plane - Salt Lake City - A SkyWest Airlines employee wanted in a Colorado murder attempted to steal a passenger plane from a small southern Utah airport then shot himself in the head after crashing the aircraft in a nearby parking lot, officials said Tuesday. Brian Hedglin, 40, scaled a razor wire fence at the St. George Municipal Airport early Tuesday then boarded the 50-passenger SkyWest jet while the airport was closed, St. George city spokesman Marc Mortenson said. Mortenson said the man used a rug to scale the airport's security fence in the middle of the night, drove the plane past a terminal building, clipping the wing, then crashed into cars in an airport parking lot. The plane never left the ground. A police officer making rounds found the plane idling, boarded it and found Hedglin dead with a gunshot wound to his head, Mortenson said. Hedglin was wanted in connection with the death of Christina Cornejo, 39, in Colorado Springs. Her body was found Friday by police doing a welfare check at the request of her family. Her death has been ruled a homicide. The Gazette of Colorado Springs, citing court records, reported that Hedglin dated Cornejo for four years and was arrested in March after police say he had been harassing her. The newspaper said he was free on $10,000 bond when Cornejo was found dead. The Utah airport remained closed to commercial traffic as the FBI and the Transportation Security Administration investigated the incident. Skywest officials said there were no passengers aboard the CRJ200 and the plane was not in service at the time. In a statement, the airline would say only that the incident involved one of its employees who had been on administrative leave. A dozen flights leave or arrive at the St. George airport each weekday, according to the airport's website. Most run between southern Utah and Salt Lake City, with two flights connecting St. George and Los Angeles. Skywest said its passengers are having their itineraries rearranged. The CRJ200 made by Bombardier is capable of flying up to 534 mph with a range of 1,700 miles. Normally it has a two-person flight crew and a single flight attendant. Salt Lake Tribune - July 18, 2012 - SkyWest pilot kills self after trying to steal plane at St. George airport - A SkyWest pilot wanted in connection with the murder of his former girlfriend in Colorado attempted to steal an unoccupied SkyWest airplane from the St. George Airport early Tuesday then committed suicide, officials reported Tuesday. Brian Joseph Hedglin, 40, died inside the Canadair Regional Jet 200 after shooting himself, said St. George City spokesman Marc Mortensen. SkyWest spokeswoman Marissa Snow confirmed Hedglin, of Colorado Springs, Colo., had been a pilot for the airline since 2005. "He gained unauthorized access to the aircraft," Snow said, but added they don' t know how. Mortensen said a St. George police officer was near the airport just before 1 a.m. doing a regular perimeter fence check when he discovered a motorcycle parked on the southeast side of the airport, the engine still warm. Mortensen said it appears Hedglin parked the motorcycle, then threw a rug over a razor-wire fence and used leather gloves to scale it. Once inside the fence, Hedglin got inside a regional jet, and started the engine. Hedglin backed the aircraft away from the jet bridge, Mortensen said, then began to pull forward. The jet' s left wing hit the jet bridge, and when Hedglin turned to head east, he scraped the same wing along the terminal building. Mortensen said the man then drove the jet through a security fence and over some landscaping before finally stopping after hitting multiple cars in the public parking lot. "At that point in time, the officer was coming up over the hill, and noticed the aircraft in the parking lot," Mortensen said. "He called SkyWest and notified them." The jet engines were still running when the officer approached the plane, St. George police officials said. SkyWest officials opened the plane, Mortensen said, and police officers discovered Hedglin had killed himself in the aisle of the passenger area of the plane. Mortensen said that the whole episode took no more than 10 minutes, according to video footage from airport surveillance cameras. He said an onboard voice recording device may reveal details of what happened while Hedglin was inside the plane. Colorado Springs police had been searching for Hedglin since 7 a.m. Friday, when they found the body of 39-year-old Christina Cornejo, who had been stabbed to death at Hedglin' s home, according to a police news release. Police said they immediately identified Hedglin - the woman' s former boyfriend - as their suspect. A no-bail warrant for Hedglin' s arrest - on suspicion of Class 1 felony murder - was issued Friday. On March 10, Hedglin was charged with misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief, harassment and theft, according to El Paso County court records. He pleaded guilty to the harassment charge, but was released on $10,000 bond the next day. According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, Cornejo told police in March that Hedglin invaded her apartment, took some things he had given to her and smashed a computer. Hedglin and Cornejo had been dating each other for four years when Hedglin was arrested. Hedglin was scheduled for trial in August. Meanwhile, a judge issued a restraining order prohibiting him from contacting Cornejo, according to the Gazette. Officers went to Hedglin' s home on Friday, following a call from a concerned family member. A coroner ruled the woman' s death from "multiple stab wounds" was a homicide, police said. Colorado Springs detectives contacted SkyWest on Friday and had them deactivate Hedglin' s access cards in the event he showed up at a company facility. SkyWest officials also put Hedglin on leave. SkyWest officials confirmed they were cooperating with the FBI' s investigation of the incident. "Today' s events are extremely regrettable and we are working closely with authorities and airport officials," said Snow. FBI spokeswoman Deborah Bertram said they are assisting St. George police and the Transportation Security Administration, but won' t play a large role in the investigation because the suspect is dead. A news release from the Colorado National Guard confirmed that Hedglin was a Food Service Specialist with the Guard, who had no other specialized training and had not been deployed for combat. Hedglin probably knew the door code or some other means of accessing the jetway leading to the airplane, said Dave Funk, a retired Northwest Airlines pilot who works as an aviation security consultant for Laird & Associates. Once aboard, Hedglin would know the complicated process required to start the engines. Funk gave credit to the police officers who realized there was a problem and moved to stop Hedglin. "Although the [security] system doesn' t sound perfect, it worked as it did," Funk said.

Hein, Alan
Alan Hein - Huerfano World Journal - October 13, 2011 - Former Walsenburg city administrator dies - Alan Hein, former Walsenburg City Administrator passed away on Monday night at his home in Navajo Estates just west of the city. Hein was hired in April of 2009 to take over for Eric Pearson who had earlier resigned to take another city administrator' s job in North Carolina. He was hired for his infrastructure expertise, as he had served as a city administrator and public works director in a small Texas town for 24 years before coming to Walsenburg. He wanted to relocate to Colorado to be nearer to family members. The waste water treatment plant, the Martin Valve project at Lathrop State Park, the raw water line issues west of Walsenburg and the sewer line project for the Northlands area of the city were major projects he was tackling. Before he could get some of those projects going, the City of Walsenburg began experiencing financial problems, which led to the first round of layoffs of city workers. Hein also saw the need for further layoffs in early 2010. Hein was very strong on using the city work force for matching grants with in-kind labor. While this was not always popular, Hein said it created the necessary work to keep city crews busy and save lots of money on labor costs by not having to use outside sources. He had operated a city of similar size to Walsenburg with half the work force for many years. While he was troubled by having to lay-off workers, he felt that the city was able to continue operating efficiently. As the Martin Valve project and the waste water treatment plant projects were underway, Hein was diagnosed with cancer in mid-2010. He cited interference in doing his job and his declining health for his decision to quit. Hein was 62 years old, and survived by his wife and numerous family members. Services are pending.

Heisley, Newt
Newt Heisley - Pueblo Chieftain - May 17, 2009 - The Colorado Springs man who designed the black and white POW/MIA flag flown everywhere from federal buildings to Harley-Davidson fenders died Thursday at his home. Newt Heisley was 88. ' ' Newt wanted no hoopla. All he wants is a celebration,'  his fiancΓ©e, Donna R. Allison, said. That' s what he' ll get on Flag Day, June 14, from 1-4 p.m. at the American Legion Post 38 in Security. The public is invited. He will be entombed at Shrine of Remembrance next to his wife of 61 years, Margaret ' ' Bunny,' ' who died in 2005. The prolific image he sketched in pencil in 1971 has the silhouette of a man under a guard tower and behind barbed wire. It' s a symbolic reminder that not every soldier returned from the war in Vietnam. The flag flew over the White House when President Ronald Reagan marked the first POW/MIA Recognition Day. Biker groups adopted the flag, tattooing the image on their bodies, patching it on jackets and flying it from their bumpers. Newt Heisley sported the image on his hat, lapel, and license plate. ' Everyone knew it was Newt' s flag,'  Allison said. ' ' He would personally sign them for people, that' s what he would do for years.' ' He never dreamed it would be a national icon. He was simply ' the ad guy'  around town. ' He was just working for an ad agency. He came up with the rendition of the flag,'  said his son, James Heisley. ' ' At first he was almost embarrassed, but he got kind of used to it. It defined his life.'  Newt Heisley was proud of what the flag meant. He was a C-46 transport pilot in World War II in the Pacific. ' ' It was typical to present it in black-and-white and his idea was to go back and do some color,'  James Heisley said. ' They came and looked at it and said, ' That' s it.' '  Newt Heisley worked in advertising for 25 years in big Manhattan agencies before moving to Colorado Springs to start an his own advertising firm. ' ' He decided there had to be greener pastures,' ' James Heisley said. ' ' He almost took a job in Bermuda, but my mom was a little leery of living on an island. They said, ' Let' s head west and see what we can see.' They were on the way to California and pulled into a hotel room in Colorado Springs in the dark. In the morning he saw Pikes Peak and said, ' Bunny, we aren' t going any further.' '  He retired from Heisley Design and Advertising in 1987. ' ' He didn' t expect to get any recognition. If he had a nickel for every time that image appeared, he and I' d be multi-multi millionaires,' ' James Heisley said. ' ' Newt always said it was better as public image.' ' He also is survived by another son, Jeffrey N., who modeled for the silhouette on the flag; daughters-in-law Susan Heisley and Deborah Heisley; and granddaughter Sara Heisley.

They were working on a platform 160 feet from the bottom at the time the blast occurred. Fraser was 40 years old and leaves a wife and two children at Leadville. Henderson was 35 years old and leaves a wife who was visiting in Walsenburg when the accident occurred.

Hennessey, Patrick W.
Patrick W. Hennessey - Denver Evening Post - September 22, 1899 - A Brother With Little Sympathy - Glenwood Springs, Sept. 22 - Patrick W. Hennessey, from Providence, R. I., who was taken to the insane asylum from here last week, is dead. A letter from a friend, who was seeking to alleviate the measures taken for the man' s welfare, has written that Peter Hennessey, his brother, who is reputed to be worth $15,000 to $20,000 and is a resident of Providence, refuses to give a cent to care for the person of the dead man. The disposition of Hennessey' s remains will probably be left to the insane asylum officials. There appears to be no doubt that Hennessey was a fine workman as a gold and silver chaser. His tools, now in the hands of the sheriff, are of the finest quality. Members of his club in Providence took the matter up and only refused to further contribute when his brother stated that he would not give anything for the care of a man who was on the quick road to death. Eastern philosophy and the ties of blood relationship seem very odd to those who have tried to make easy the last moments of the stranger.

Then he volunteered at the SRDA assisting the elderly with income taxes for the next 27 years. He was a devoted and active member of King of Kings Lutheran Church and participated for many years in Social Ministry and Thimbles and Patches Quilting.

Hensel, Levia
Levia ' Bona'  Hensel - Pueblo Chieftain - January 13, 1991 - Kansas Visitor Became Historical Figure in Southern Colorado - When the first Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad passenger train came rolling into Pueblo in March 1876, nearly all the passengers were Kansas newsmen and women who were enjoying a hilarious free load. One rider, Levia "Bona" Hensel, was a frequent contributor to the Kansas City Times. He chose to remain in Pueblo and went to work for The Pueblo Chieftain as an advertising and subscription salesman. He also wrote articles about the areas he visited and signed them "Bona." Hensel acquired his nickname in boyhood because his ability to win snowball fights was as keen as that of Napoleon Bonaparte in winning wars. Hensel was born in Ohio in 1832 and worked his way westward. During the Civil War, he was a first lieutenant in Capt. Blackburn's Company G, 13th Kansas Volunteers, which fought the Confederate force operating in Missouri and Arkansas. It didn't take long for Hensel to become well acquainted in Colorado. His readers soon realized that he had that rare ability to remember every person he met and to recognize him at another place five years later. Hensel covered the first session of the Colorado Legislature in December 1876. He traveled in the San Juans in 1877. He also spent considerable time in 1877 and 1878 in Lake County and what now is Chaffee County. He informed the world of the great carbonate discovery in Lake County and was greatly disappointed when supporters reneged on a promise to back him in a newspaper enterprise. When Nick Creede discovered the Monarch mining district, Bona went to report on what was there. He also went to Telluride, the Uncompahgre Valley, the San Luis Valley, Trinidad, Walsenburg, South Park, down the Arkansas River to Dodge City and points in between. He traveled by train whenever possible, but much of the time he rode in a wagon, on a burro, horse and probably did some walking. He stayed overnight in hotels, as the guest of a rancher's family or in a miner's cabin. In 1878, settlers from Poncha Springs to Helena (near Buena Vista) and Cleora (near Salida) gathered at a Dr. Wright's place for a July Fourth celebration. Hensel showed up, gave an impromptu address and, at the end of the day, caught a ride to Poncha Springs. Hensel settled in Silver Cliff for a time in the early 1880s. He did some mining, operated a newspaper and continued to keep Chieftain readers informed. One son expressed desire to be a farmer and Hensel used his homestead rights as a Civil War veteran to obtain the title to the old town of Titusville in Custer County. Hensel and his first wife divorced in the early 1880s. He later married Mrs. L.A. Caffell, a Pueblo resident. They lived about 10 years near her children in Espanola, N.M., and The Chieftain received an occasional dispatch from there. They later built a home on Abriendo Avenue and returned here. Hensel died here in 1911.

Herrera, Albert Joe
Albert Joe Herrera - Pueblo Chieftain - December 12, 1998 - Brutal Beating Claims Life of PCC Student - Police outside the house at 135 Harvard inspect the scene of a murder Friday. The badly beaten body of a 26-year-old Pueblo man was found in his central Pueblo home Friday afternoon, the city's second murder of the day. Albert DeHerrera suffered unspecified "blunt trauma" injuries inside his house at 135 Harvard, Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. DeHerrera's killer remained unknown. A motive for the murder also was unknown. Pueblo police investigators continued to track leads and develop a list of possible suspects through the night Friday. The attack likely occurred the previous night, police said. An autopsy is planned for this afternoon, after which police may release more details about the cause and timing of the murder. The discovery of DeHerrera's body came about 1 p.m., as police were in the midst of investigating the separate murder of a 15-year-old East Side girl. The two cases are not related, police Deputy Chief Charlene Graham said. Family members concerned after not hearing from DeHerrera found his body in a front bedroom of the home at 135 Harvard, police Sgt. Kim Wittrup said. "It was a fairly graphic scene," said Wittrup, who declined to release any more details on the cause of death pending today's autopsy. DeHerrera is believed to have worked in the medical technician field and also was a student at Pueblo Community College, Wittrup said. DeHerrera was seen about 9 p.m. Thursday night leaving PCC, Wittrup said. "We're assuming this happened sometime during the night," Wittrup said. The family members reported the house was locked when they arrived, Wittrup said. They forced their way into the house through a back door, he said. Neighbors said DeHerrera lived alone at the neat, two-story house in the heart of a residential area known as The Blocks, near Mesa Junction. Neighbors said the house was recently remodeled. DeHerrera had lived at the house for about six months, Wittrup said. Pueblo Chieftain - December 13, 1998 - Albert Joe DeHerrera, 26, of Pueblo went to be with the Lord Dec. 11, 1998. Born Oct. 21, 1972, in Pueblo. Preceded in death by his grandmother, Sally Romero; one uncle, Roy Lopez; and his cousin, Brenna Cadena. Survived by his parents, Leroy (Wedo) and Elizabeth A. DeHerrera, Pueblo; sister, Deanna DeHerrera, Pueblo; half brothers, Tony (Karen) DeHerrera, Robert (Rita) DeHerrera and Ron DeHerrera, all of Colorado Springs; half sisters, Loretta (Floyd) Segura and Evelyn DeHerrera, both of Colorado Springs; grandmother, Mary Solis, Pueblo; aunts, Bernadette (Clem) Olguin, Katie (Klaus) Priebe, both of Pueblo, and Theresa Cadena, Littleton, Colo.; uncles, Charles (Wanda) Cadena, Wichita, Kan., Richard (Carroll) Cadena, Santa Fe, N.M., Manuel (Stella) Cadena and Mike (Mary) Cadena, Pueblo; special cousin, Leslie Hanson, Pueblo; godsister, April Casarez, Pueblo; godparents, John and Barbara Vigil, Pueblo; and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Albert will be remembered as a man who loved music and children, a loving man with a very kind heart. He will be sadly missed by all who loved him. Albert worked for F.M.C. Dialysis Unit in Florence, Colo., as unit secretary for two years and was a student at PCC. Funeral Mass, 10 a.m. Tuesday at St. Leander Church, Rev. Ed Nunez, celebrant. Interment, Roselawn Cemetery. Relatives and friends will be received at 1518 E. Fifth. Pueblo Chieftain - December 19, 1998 - Murder Victim' s Car Seized by Denver Cops - A car belonging to murder victim Albert Joe DeHerrera has been found in Denver, according to the head of detectives for the Pueblo Police Department. Deputy Chief Charlene Graham said Friday that DeHerrera's 1997 Buick Skylark was seized by Denver police after a traffic stop and has since been returned to Pueblo. Graham would not comment on where the car was stopped, who was driving it, or if there were other passengers in the vehicle when it was stopped. "All I can say right now is there have been no arrests for homicide in this case," Graham said. DeHerrera was found beaten to death in his bed at his residence at 135 Harvard about 12:45 p.m. on Dec. 11. His car had been missing since the homicide. Graham was guarded in discussing the discovery of DeHerrera's vehicle, but it was evident she was pleased to have a break in the weeklong investigation of the killing. Pueblo Chieftain - January 19, 1999 - Pueblo Murder Suspect Arrested in Florida - A 39-year-old man being held on a first-degree murder charge in Gainesville, Fla., is also a suspect in the December beating death of Puebloan Albert Joe DeHerrera. The suspect was identified as Glen Randall Register, a "floater" who reportedly was a guest in DeHerrera's home in the hours or days before DeHerrera's battered body was found Dec. 11 in his home at 135 Harvard, according to Pueblo police Deputy Chief Charlene Graham. Graham said Monday that Pueblo detectives had a draft affidavit identifying Register as DeHerrera's assailant and were asking for an arrest warrant on a charge of first-degree murder when they learned he was a suspect in Florida. "I couldn't believe it," Sgt. Kim Wittrup said Monday of the call from Gainesville police investigators. "I had a draft affidavit in my hand for Register and they call and start asking questions about him." Graham said the lead detectives in the DeHerrera homicide, Michele Ellis and Tim Boies, had traced DeHerrera's stolen car to Register and they believed the suspect had fled to Florida. Unfortunately, the local investigation came to a focus too late to benefit the Gainesville man who was found beaten to death on Jan. 13, Graham said. In addition to both victims being beaten, Graham said there were numerous other similarities between the two homicides. Both victims' cars were stolen after they were murdered and both victims were known homosexuals, she said. According to Wittrup, Register has a lengthy arrest record and has previous felony convictions, including a 1988 larceny and convictions for trespassing and burglary in 1992. Also, Register was an inmate at the Rocky Mountain Community Corrections, 2415 Lake Ave., in 1997. Though local detectives are convinced Register acted alone when he killed DeHerrera, they are not optimistic he will be returned to Colorado soon to face charges. "I don't see them bringing him back to Colorado until Florida's through with him," Graham said. Detectives may travel to Florida to interview Register about the Pueblo homicide.

Hoitt, J. F.
J. F. Hoitt - Daily Rocky Mountain News - July 6, 1877 - Died of Chloroform - The Chieftain gives the particulars of the death on Monday last, at Pueblo, of J. F. Hoitt, who has been for a year or more in the employ of Dr. A. Steinberger as clerk. He was a steady and exemplary young man, perfectly upright in his dealings, and, as far as known, a young man of excellent morals. He was of a diffident, reserved disposition, and had but few intimate acquaintances. Dr. Steinberger says he was a man of fine education and one of the best druggists in the state. He is the son of Mr. Stevens Hoitt, of Newton, New Hampshire, is about twenty-nine years old, and is an old acquaintance and friend of Mr. Mark Blunt, who was sent for as soon as his death was known. He has for a long time been in the habit of indulging in strong drugs, and once before came near dying from the effect of an overdose of something that he took for neuralgia, before he came to Colorado. Something near a year ago Dr. Steinberger detected him under the influence of chloroform, which he had suspected him of using, and he then notified him that he must quit using it or leave his employ. He promised to quit, and to all appearances did not use any till very recently. The doctor slept in the same room with him and retired first on Sunday night. The supposition is that he wished to indulge in a small dose, and being afraid the doctor would detect him if he attempted to pour it into a vial, took the large bottle to bed with him and was overcome with the drug before he was aware of it. The clothes were drawn tightly over his head, the empty bottle under his shoulder, and the cork, a glass stopper, in his hand. The window of the room was open and the door communicating with the store was also open, otherwise it is doubtful if Dr. Steinberger would be alive to tell of the accident.

Holden, Hiram L.
Hiram Holden - Rocky Mountain News - November 8, 1897 - Suicide of Hiram Holden - Popular Young Business Man of Pueblo Shoots Himself - Pueblo, Colo., Nov. 7 - Business and social circles of Pueblo were profoundly shocked this morning when it was announced that Hiram L. Holden had committed suicide at the home of his parents, where he has always lived in this city. Mr. Holden was but 27 years of age and unmarried, yet for three years or more had held the responsible position of cashier at the Central National bank, with credit to himself and to the institution. It was not long after the occurrence until the fear which has possessed the minds of the members of Mr. Holden' s family for a year past became public, that he was suffering from mental troubles which had caused the family much anxiety. His first ailing of this kind dates back about a year, when he suffered a severe attack of typhoid and mountain fever, which almost resulted in his death. Since that time he has been very hard at work and the strain on his mind had been such that in the minds of his friends and according to testimony adduced before the coroner' s jury this afternoon he was temporarily insane when he committed the rash act. Bullet Hole in His Head - It seems that last night Mr. Holden played cards with the members of his family at his home until about 10 o' clock, when he went to bed apparently in his usual spirits, which, however, of late have been somewhat sad, even melancholic. This morning at the breakfast hour, 9 o' clock, when he did not appear members of the family called him without receiving an answer, where upon General D. L. Holden, father of the young man, went to his room and was astounded to find his son lying upon the bed fully dressed. He held a revolver in his hand and a bullet hole in the right side of his head too plainly told the cause of his death. The coroner was quickly summoned and the opinion was expressed that the shot was fired at about 8:30 this morning. The fact that it was not heard by any member of the family is to be accounted for by the size of the house and the remoteness of young Holden' s room from those occupied by other members of the family. Deliberately Took His Life - He had carefully donned other than his regular business clothes, lain down upon the bed and apparently shot himself through the head. No one for a moment supposed that any financial difficulties at the bank was the cause of Mr. Holden' s suicide, but as a matter of precaution for the family the officers of the bank made an examination of the books and testified at the inquest this afternoon that everything is all right. It was developed that on numerous occasions Mr. Holden had acted in a way to give rise to the belief in the minds of his friends that he was suffering from temporary mental aberration. The coroner' s jury this evening rendered a verdict that Mr. Holden came to his death by suicide while temporarily insane. The family of which he was a member is one of the oldest and in a business way. General D. L. Holden, father of the young man, has been a prominent citizen of this portion of Colorado for many years and has filled positions of trust and honor. Young Mr. Holden was accounted a splendid and promising young business man, counted his friends by the score and was held in high esteem by everyone. The occurrence creates much sympathy for a highly respected family and is universally lamented. Funeral services will be held some time Tuesday.

Hollingsberry, Harold G.
Harold G. Hollingsberry - Yuma Pioneer - October 16, 1914 - Three Die in Wreck - Twenty-Ton Rock Demolishes Train at Grand Junction - Fourteen Others Seriously Hurt When Boulder Smashes Two Cars on Rio Grande Road - Grand Junction - Three persons were killed and fourteen others seriously injured when a twenty-ton boulder crashed 100 feet into the day coach and smoker of westbound passenger train No. 3, eighteen miles east of this city. The heavy missile is believed to have been loosened from the cliff by frost. It was preceded by a smaller boulder which struck the coupling between the tender and smoker, parting the train. Automatic air brakes brought the separated section to a stop. A moment later the massive rock was catapulted upon the smoker and day coach. The two cars, despite their all-steel construction, were crushed to bits. The dead: H. R. Hollingsbery, Pueblo, traveling salesman; Thomas C. Linkens, Grand Junction, branch manager Ridenour Baker Grocery Company; Harry Braddock, Chicago. The seriously injured: Ralph Arthur Cox, marine recruit, Boulder, en route to San Francisco, head gashed, left leg crushed, rib fractured, hands bruised; Adna Bratingham, Alliance, Ohio, badly bruised and nervous shock; Emmett Abbott, Sacramento, left ear torn off, severe bruises; Mrs. Stella Maynard, Fruita, Colo., forehead gashed; Audrey Harrington, her daughter, scalp lacerated; W. E. Lewis, Roberts, Idaho, severe bruises; Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Black, Atkinson, Ill., arms bruised, nervous shock, minor injuries; Richard Mackay, Alhambra, Cal., left arm and wrist bruised; D. F. Wilson, Brazil, Ind., side hurt; Falcom Joslin, Fairbanks, Alaska, hip bruised; E. V. Springer, Denver, right shoulder bruised; Mrs. Lizzie Anderson, Grand Junction, nervous shock; Mrs. F. A. Selinger, Salida, hip and head bruised. Railroad men are unable to explain how the other occupants of the car escaped with their lives. Despite the destruction of the two cars, at least twenty men, women and children escaped practically unhurt. At the point where the wreck occurred, the tracks closely parallel the Grand river and cliffs, from which the huge boulder fell, rise sheer hundreds of feet above the river bank. Much of the wreckage of the two cars was plunged into the swift mountain stream. Note: Harold Hollingsberry was buried in Roselawn Cemetery in Pueblo, Colorado.

Hon, April
April Hon - Pueblo Chieftain - October 30, 2012 - An early morning house fire has killed four people in Pueblo. KRDO Radio was told that the victims are a 2-year-old, a 3-month-old, and an adult man and woman. She believes the man and woman were the children's parents but can't get it confirmed. Pueblo police Sgt. Steve Etienne says the fire was reported about 2 a.m. Tuesday in a residential area in east Pueblo. He says flames and smoke were pouring from the home when firefighters arrived. Etienne says some details of the fire are not being released, including the ages and genders of the victims. He says no one escaped. Investigators say they don't know how the fire started and they're treating it as a criminal investigation. Pueblo Chieftain - October 30, 2012 - The Pueblo County Coroner has released the names of the victims in an early morning house fire on the East Side. According to County Coroner James Kramer, Harvey Montoya, 62, April Hon, 26, Frankie Anaya, 3 months, and Michael Hon-Montoya, 2, were killed in the fire at 1347 E. 2nd St. Kramer said the cause of their deaths remains under investigation. Pueblo Fire Chief Chris Riley said this morning that investigators have ruled out any kitchen or cooking related cause for the fire but everything else remains on the table. He said it could take days before an official cause is determined. "Speed is not the priority here, doing it the right way is the priority," he said. Pueblo Chieftain - October 31, 2012 - Four people, including a mother and her two young children, died early Tuesday in a fire that investigators say appears to be accidental, the result of medical oxygen and cigarette smoking. Pueblo fire Chief Chris Riley called the 2:09 a.m. fire at 1347 E. Second St. the most tragic fire fatality here in decades. "Right now the fire appears to be accidental in nature. It also appears to have started from smoking. It appears accidental smoking and the oxygen bottle possibly accelerated the fire," Riley said.

Howell, John
John Howell - Daily Rocky Mountain News - May 7, 1876 - Two Orphans' Adventures - One of the Many Romantic Incidents in a Railroad Conductor' s Life - On Monday last, says the Atchison Patriot, Conductor Ben Cole discovered, crouched under one of the seats in a smoking car, a boy and a girl. ' Mister, is this road to Haven?'  said the boy, as he crawled out, and the girl said, ' Mister, please don' t put us off, our folks live there, and we ain' t got any father or mother, and here' s a letter,'  at the same time drawing from her faded calico apron a crumpled piece of paper, and handing it to Mr. Cole. After looking at is a long time, for it was badly written, badly spelled and blurred, he made out this: ' All good people: These children ain' t got no father or mother. They died here in February, and I' se been tending to ' em. They ain' t got no folks here, and their folks live in Haven, Connecticut. I' se a poor nigger woman, and can' t keep ' em no longer. I' se got myself to support, and they' se a going back to their folks. They is good children, and don' t do ' em no harm. Jane Maupin.'  Mr. Cole sat down by the boy, who was about thirteen years of age, and bright. He learned that in the spring John Howell, with his wife and two children, left New Haven, Connecticut, for the west, and arrived at Pueblo, but that there both died, and, during their sickness, the old negro, Jane Maupin, was the only attendant at their bedside, and when the children were thrown out upon the world, orphans, friendless and penniless, she cared for them as she would for her own children. But having learned from the father that they were from New Haven, and that they had an uncle there by the name of Martin Howell, she conceived the idea that they ought to go back, and she thought that the letter she wrote and gave them would be a passport to all the world. They started three weeks ago, taking the A., T. and S. F. train for Atchison, and a conductor had put them off near Pueblo. But they had started for Haven, and they resolved that they would go. By ' stealing rides,'  now in a freight car, now under the seats in the smoking car, and now in the caboose among the piles of trunks and packages, and begging their food, they reached Topeka, fifty miles from Atchison. They wandered around Topeka all day, and at night they hid themselves in a flat car laden with building stone. In the gray dawn they reached Atchison, begged a breakfast and dinner, and at 2 o' clock hid themselves under a seat in the Missouri Pacific car, where they were found by Mr. Cole. Mr. Cole took the children to Kansas City, the end of his ' run,'  cared for them there, telegraphed to Martin Howell at New Haven, Conn., and received an answer to send the children in care of the conductor to New Haven, and to draw upon him for the expenses of the trip. They are on their way.

Hudspeth, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Hudspeth - Pueblo Chieftain - July 19, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1956 - 1957 - Puebloans Turn Their Attention to Space - They Made a Difference - Elizabeth Hudspeth - Residents of Regency Park neighborhood are still waiting for the development of Hudspeth Park on a 10-acre plot given to the city 20 years ago by Phil and Elizabeth Hudspeth. Both were active in the city's politics and civic affairs, but Mrs. Hudspeth's influence outlasted her husband's. He died in 1981. The two met in California, where he was studying the dairy business on behalf of his family's Superior Dairy in Pueblo and she was an aspiring actress. They married in 1927 and returned to Pueblo, where Mrs. Hudspeth unleashed her talents as a City Council member and a delegate to the charter convention that changed Pueblo's government from a mayoral system to the current city manager setup. Years later, following unsuccessful runs for seats in both houses of the state Legislature, she was a vocal opponent of a move to return to a mayoral type of government. She also served as president of the YWCA and the City Federation of Women's Clubs. She created and managed the speaker's bureau for the Community Chest (now United Way) and the Pueblo Civic Symphony. A member and first reader at First Church of Christ, Scientist, she and her husband donated the land for the church on Pennwood Lane. They gave the land for the park to the city in 1979. When Mrs. Hudspeth died in 1996, family members requested memorials be made to the city to develop the park, which has become an issue of contention among Regency residents.

Hughes, Anna F.
Anna Hughes - Pueblo Indicator - January 22, 1938 - Hughes Will Be Arraigned - Everett B, Hughes, who shot and killed his wife, Mrs. Anna Hughes, will probably be arraigned in District Judge Harry Leddy' s court the early part of next week. Hughes is charged with having killed his wife and then taking the body away in his automobile at night and burying it in a shallow grave on the prairie some 60 miles southeast of Pueblo. Pueblo Indicator - March 5, 1938 - Wife Slayer Will Be Tried - Wife Killer Pronounced Sane By A Sanity Commission Of 3 Doctors - A sanity commission composed of Dr. F. H. Zimmerman, Dr. J. L. Rosenblum and Dr. Paul S. Wolf, after having kept Everett B. Hughes under observation 30 days, pronounced him sane, whereupon District Attorney Ralph L. Neary asked District Judge Harry Leddy to set March 7 as the date for opening the trial, and the court set the time accordingly. Regardless of the finding of the board that Hughes is sane, it is thought he will plead insanity at the time he killed his wife, Anna F. Hughes, January 3. Hughes placed the body in his automobile and drove to a point a few miles east of Walsenburg where he buried it in a shallow grave on the prairie. He afterwards confessed the crime and led officers to the lonely grave. Pueblo Chieftain - May 17, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1938 - 1939 - A Time of Recovery - Although the makings of World War II made news almost daily throughout the two-year-period, Puebloans were more enthralled with local crime, including the murder trial of candy salesman Everett B. Hughes. He was accused of killing his wife, Ann, and then disposing of her body and all of her belongings to make it look as though she had simply packed up and left. A "goodbye" letter he wrote and signed her name to was his undoing. The typewritten missive contained too many spelling and grammatical errors to have been written by Mrs. Hughes, a published writer whose poetry was familiar to Chieftain readers. Hughes finally was found guilty in April 1938, following a nine-day trial during which jurors were sequestered in a courthouse dormitory, according to Chieftain accounts.

Hughes, George Weldon

The family moved to Colorado from Connecticut when George was 10 years old. He grew up in Trinidad and after high school, he and his brother, Larry, went to work in the oil fields in Texas. Later, George went to live in Kansas. In 2005, he returned to Trinidad. George was a friendly and kind person. He enjoyed being with friends and family. He visited or called his mother every day. He always offered a helping hand, whenever one was needed to whoever needed it. He was handy with his hands and could do any job. He liked being and working outdoors. George had a favorite saying: ' If wishes were horses, then dreams would ride.'  When asked what that meant, he would reply ' Think about it.'  Then he would smile. George will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Cremation. Memorial services were held May 28, 2010, at Holy Trinity Church, Trinidad.

He joined the Merchant Marines during World War II, and sailed from France to Alaska to Hawaii for the next 25 years. Leaving the ships in 1969, he started working construction with his cousin in California. In 1977, when most men his age were thinking about slowing down, Hugh met and married Kathry; two years later his only son, Joseph, was born. In 1989, the family moved back to Colorado. Never one to sit still, Hugh quickly went to work meeting new people and making new friends. Hugh was a man that never met a stranger. He loved talking to people, and if anyone ever needed a helping hand, Hugh was the first one there. During the last four years he greatly enjoyed his brother Bob's daily visits. A better brother no one could have ever had. Hugh was a wonderful father, and loving husband, and we feel very blessed to have had this time with him. This world is a better place for Hugh having lived in it, and he will be sadly missed by those of us who loved him.

Hunter, C. V.
C. V. Hunter - Pueblo Indicator - September 21, 1929 - Fatal Accident on Rye Road - Three persons cremated in burning car following a bump at Fisher Bridge - The most gruesome accident that ever occurred in or near Pueblo took place last Sunday evening at 9 o' clock on the Rye road near Fisher' s ranch, eight miles out. C.V. Hunter, driving a new Ford coupe model auto, hurtled the car squarely against the bridge while traveling at 30 miles as it is thought after questioning Lawrence Merrill, 17 years old, the only one of four who were in the ill-fated car to escape. Immediately following the crash the car caught fire from gasoline dripping on the exhaust and ignition spark, or both, and everything of an inflammable nature about the auto was consumed. Merrill was rendered unconscious but his senses returning he managed to extricate himself although severely burned, he could not render aid to the others and they perished miserably, they being caught like rats in a steel trap. The dead: C.V. Hunter, 35, a steel worker, 1526 Routt avenue. Mrs. Hunter, 27, same address. Mrs. Dewey Spoor, 130 Tyler street. It is thought all of them were so badly shocked by the impact that they were unconscious when the enveloping flames devoured them. The bodies of all three were burned to a black, crisp mass like charcoal. Sheriff Sam Curran, Undersheriff A. L. McAuley, and Coroner C. N. Caldwell hurried to the scene of the wreck, and the Novak garage brought the car in on a truck, the bodies still being held fast in the wreckage. The front axle and the bumper were bent in a U shape as they struck the concrete wall or abutment. The glass in the windshield was melted and the entire car burned and disfigured. The Hunters were in the front seat and Mrs. Spoor and Merrill occupied the rumble seat. All day long Monday hundred and hundreds of people visited the Novak garage in Bessemer to view the wrecked car. The gas tank in the new Ford car is located under the cowl and in front of the driver' s seat, and this arrangement caused a great deal of talk, the general opinion being that it is an unsafe arrangement, dangerous, and probably was the cause of the fire that took three lives and burned the car to cinders. The accident was the topic of conversation all day following the fearsome Holocaust.
