MacDiarmid, Mabel Jo
Mabel Jo MacDiarmid - Pueblo Chieftain – July 2, 1918 – Germans Add Hospital Ship to Crime List – Vessel Sent Down With No Warning – Doctors, Nurses, Passengers, Crew Left in Open Boats – London, July 1 – A German submarine seventy miles from the Irish coast on the night of June 27 torpedoed the 11,000 ton hospital ship Llandovery Castle, chartered by the Canadian government and in the service of carrying wounded and sick from England to Canada. The ship was then on her way to England. She had on board 258 persons, 80 men of the Canadian army medical corps, and 14 women nurses. Only 24, including the captain, are reported saved. The attack was without warning. The submarine commander, who ordered the captain, several of his officers and Major Lyon, of the medical corps, aboard, said he sank the ship because she was carrying aviation officers and others in the fighting service of the allies. He added later that the vessel was carrying munition stores, because of an explosion which occurred aft. All lights were burning when the Llandovery Castle was torpedoed. These included a huge electric cross over the bridge and strings of white and green lights on either side. The red crosses on the sides of the vessel were illuminated… Note: Mabel Jo MacDiarmid, of Pueblo, was one of the nurses that perished. Pueblo Chieftain – July 13, 1918 – Pueblo Nurse May Be U-Boat's Victim – That a Pueblo nurse, Miss Jessie Mabel MacDiarmit, formerly head nurse at Minnequa hospital, was among the victims of the German U–Boat which sunk the hospital ship, Llandovery Castel, off the Irish coast on June 27, was made known in Pueblo yesterday through a letter to Dr. Robert W. Corwin from the father of Miss MacDiarmit, J. A. MacDiarmit, of Ashton, Ont. There were 250 persons on board, including 80 medical men and 15 nurses, of this number but 24 were saved. Pueblo Chieftain – October 2, 1918 – “Sub” Takes Life of Minnequa Nurse – Dr. R. W. Corwin, chief surgeon for the C. F. & I. company, has been notified that Miss Mabel Jo MacDiarmid, formerly one of the staff of head nurses at the Minnequa hospital, was drowned in the sinking of the Canadian hospital ship Llandovery Castle, by a German submarine off the coast of Ireland on June 27 last. The heroic young woman resigned her duties at the hospital, so it is stated, to serve as a nurse for the allies. Pueblo Chieftain – October 2, 1918 – Pueblo Nurses Now in War Service – Quite a number of former Minnequa hospital nurses are now in foreign service as nurses for the allies. They are the Misses Elizabeth Hopkins, Mabel Crick, Callie Remington, Margaret Hammill, Katherine Duce, Elizabeth Dunsmuir and the late Mabel J. MacDiarmid, the last named being drowned when a hospital ship was sunk off the coast of Ireland by a Hun submarine. Pueblo Chieftain – January 1, 1919 – Four of Pueblo's Red Cross Workers Died – One Nurse Died When Hun Torpedo Sank Ship She Was Sailing On To France – Died in Active Service: Asbury White, front line canteen work; Phoebe Allen, Ft. Slocum; Died en Route: Jane Minor Hendricks, in New York; Died on Torpedoed Hospital Ship Llandorf Castle: Mabel Macdiermid, June 7, 1918. Pueblo county has a notable record in its contribution to the working personnel under the Red Cross both at home and abroad. Before the participation of our country in active fighting, there were residents of the Sunshine county at work wearing the badge of mercy. But in the last twenty months, forty-one women and three men have been accepted by the Red Cross for work at home and abroad. It must not be forgotten that to be fit for such work, candidates must pass a strict, even severe, examination and appraisement of qualifications, physical, mental and moral. The term moral meaning more than mere rectitude of action, and carrying all that subtle power of inspiring courage, and manifesting unflinching devotion under any circumstances…The location of these nurses and other workers is given from the last information at hand in the local office…Mrs. Henry, the secretary of Pueblo chapter, has given much time to obtaining the data of service by checking up the records of the Pueblo nurses both here and at the state headquarters in Denver… The records available show that 23 workers were sent over seas, and eighteen were assigned to this country. The three men workers were all in foreign service. The names follow: Mabel MacDiermid, (died) on hospital ship Llamdorf Castle, torpedoed June 27, 1918.

His work required an unusual stock of patience and downright common sense. There was a ruggedness of discernment which were well with the men with whom he was brought into contact. Leaders of home missions in the national offices held him in high esteem and frequently sent for him to make known the work of the western churches in the East.

Madril, Maggie
Maggie Madril - Pueblo Chieftain – October 8, 1917 – Mystery Surrounds Death of Mother and Daughter - Mystery surrounds the death of Miss Maggie Medril and her mother, Mrs. Prax Zedis Jrigillo near Undercliff. The former, died Saturday and the latter yesterday. The peculiar manner in which the two women, died has caused Corner Dr. Ray Taylor to make an investigation. He was called to Undercliff yesterday when the second woman died and from the investigation made yesterday determined that both women died from taking some sort of powders for headache. Saturday Miss Madril was suffering from a severe headache and took the contents of a capsule. She died shortly afterwards and the indications are that the capsule contained strychnine. The mother, grief stricken, wept so much that she contracted a headache and took one of the capsules yesterday morning to relieve the pain. She died a few hours later in the same manner as her daughter. Dr. Taylor investigated and believes of the capsules contain strychnine. He has empty capsules and some of the others. Where the capsules were obtained and the circumstances surrounding the sale of them to the women will be thoroughly probed by the corner to determine whether or not it was a result of a plot.

Maes, Clifford
Clifford Maes - Trinidad Times Independent - February 20, 2009 - Accessory, Tampering Charges Bound Over in Shooting - Charges of being an accessory to a crime and tampering with evidence were bound over February 13 in District Court for Samson Lopez, 30. The charges were part of an alleged double homicide at the Hollywood Bar the morning of November 20 that claimed the life of Benjamin Griego, 21, and Clifford Maes, 31. In addition to Lopez's charges, Ron Martinez has been charged with first-degree murder and two drugs charges after allegedly killing Maes, with Sandoval being held on evidence tampering and first-degree murder charges in Griego's shooting. Lopez and Sandoval's tampering charges are the result of the Trinidad Police Department's (TPD) pulling from Trinidad Lake the guns allegedly used in the shooting. As reported by TPD Detective Phil Martin at last Friday's hearing, the guns recovered from the lake were a Glock 9mm and a Springfield .45. The 9mm had been allegedly used by Sandoval to kill Griego, while the .45 was allegedly used by Martinez on Maes. The drugs charges against Martinez came from a search conducted of his room at the 705 W. Baca St. residence he shared with Sandoval that yielded 15.025 ounces of a substance that field tested positive for cocaine. The chronology of Lopez's alleged acts of accessory to the alleged crime, as recounted at the preliminary hearing, began shortly after Martinez shot Maes inside the Hollywood Bar. Lopez, at the bar with his wife, reportedly fled the bar once the shooting started. Martin testified that Lopez's wife had told him of seeing Sandoval outside the bar as they ran toward his vehicle; he was reportedly shooting toward the ground in the general area where Griego's body was later discovered. The Lopezes then reportedly got into Sandoval's car, with Samson Lopez in the back, his wife driving and Sandoval riding shotgun. They then went to Sandoval and Martinez's residence, retrieved from Martinez the gun used to shoot Maes, dropped Lopez's wife back at their residence and then Sandoval drove himself and Lopez to the west side of the dam crossing Trinidad Lake. Sandoval threw the 9mm on the south side of the dam, and Lopez threw the .45 to the north side. Both weapons were later found on the rocks below, neither having been thrown far enough to reach the water. Following the alleged attempt at disposing of the weapons, the defendants and Lopez's wife allegedly fled north, to Denver but were arrested November 25 in the Denver suburb of Lakewood by Denver Metro Police following a joint effort by the TPD, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, and Denver Metro Police Department. The defense claimed that Lopez had assisted in the alleged attempt to conceal the crime acted under duress, and that he had told police that Martinez had threatened to shoot his wife in the face should he refuse assistance, a statement Martin confirmed. “This court heard testimony that at no point did Lopez have an opportunity to remove himself from the situation,” Public Defender Cobea Becker said. Judge Claude Appel replied that the court did not take duress under consideration during preliminary hearings. Also raised by the defense was a motion to dismiss the charges against Lopez based upon alleged prosecutorial misconduct by the TPD regarding whether he had been denied his right to legal counsel. According to various in-court testimonies, the TPD had interviewed Lopez without the presence of his attorney, Becker, as she waited to speak with him in another room at the police station for about an hour. Whey Martin and District Attorney Frank Ruybalid testified that Lopez had been read his rights, Becker replied, “It's irrelevant to the issue at hand; the issue is the Fifth Amendment right to counsel.” Lopez's bond was set at the statutory level for a class five felony, $5,000 cash or surety. A motions hearing in the case was set for March 27.

Mr. Major was struck on the head with a falling rock in a mine several years ago and since that time has been subject to fits of temporary insanity, but was always controlled before he did any harm. About two weeks ago he was attacked by a fit of this nature and knocked down his son on Main street. The officers put him in jail and in a couple of days he was all right again. He was sent to Pueblo for treatment, where he died. He was well known in Gilpin and Clear Creek counties. Note: This man is noted in a number of other newspaper articles as Frank Magor, not Frank Major.

Magrath, Christopher
Christopher Magrath - Huerfano World Journal - January 27, 2011 - Human remains found near Cuchara - Last Sunday, a group of lion hunters near Sulpher Springs stumbled across human bones, and alerted the Huerfano County Sheriff Department.  The way the story is told, the men lost sight of their dogs while hunting, and whistled them back.  One of them returned lugging a human skull. Searchers returned to the area and found a femur and a glove in the general area, but with two feet of snow on the ground, decided to wait until spring to return. The body is believed to be Christopher Magrath, 28, of Tulsa, OK, who disappeared on November 6, 2009.  Magrath's truck was soon found by hunters, and it contained a suicide note.  Magrath's body was not found, despite a five-day search using aircraft and cadaver dogs. Magrath's family had been contacted and was on the scene during the initial search in 2009.  They stated that Magrath had sent several notes to relatives indicating he had come to the mountains to die and that he would make sure his body was not found.  The family also said he had moved from Oklahoma to Colorado but that they had no idea of his intentions.  Evidence and investigation into Magrath's mental state indicates that suicide was probable.

Mallaby will be received with real sadness by a host of Puebloans who knew and respected him in the highest degree. Mrs. A. K. Barwise, an intimate friend of the Mallaby family, received the sad news by wire yesterday that Mr. Mallaby had passed away at the New York City home at 5:30 in the morning. There were no particulars, and there having been no intimation that Mr. Mallaby was in other than the splendid physical condition, he enjoyed when here last summer, the news came as a shock. He was the senior member of the Mallaby-Campbell Investment Company with offices in the Central Block. He had been a resident of this city for many years. He removed to New York, where he became a leading figure with one of the largest insurance companies. The family, consisting of his wife, and two daughters, Mrs. Howard D. White and Miss Julia Mallaby, went to New York to reside, and that is still their home. Retaining his interest in the Pueblo company, Mr. Mallaby made a number of trips to this city, and was always greeted with the utmost cordiality by his many friends. Mr. Mallaby was a man of lovable disposition, yet strong personality and the strictest integrity. The site of the central block was sold by Mr. Mallaby in 1892, to the T. & H. Pueblo Building Company, which erected the handsome structure of which Mr. Mallaby was placed in charge. Mr. J. E. Campbell later became a partner and since Mr. Mallaby departed from Pueblo, has been in charge of the building. The Mallaby's family owns considerable property in this city, including a handsome residence at 1707 Lake Ave. The late O. W. Mallaby was considered an expert in realty management and values, and for a number of years has been in charge of the Real Estate of the United States Life Insurance Company of New York. It is presumed the funeral and interment will be held in New York.

(Eric) Manzanares-Morgan, Tobias F. (Ilia) Manzanares, Sue Cox, Judy Manzanares, Betty Cunningham, Gloria (Larry) Baldonado; stepchildren, Ronnie Sanchez, Ray Sanchez and Donna (Dan) Starck; grandchildren, Tim (Davida) Manzanares, John Manzanares, Orion Morgan, Gavin Morgan, Jennifer Manzanares; sister, Gloria R. Gonzales; and numerous other grandchildren, great-grandchildren, numerous nephews, nieces, cousins, extended family and friends. He served in the U.S. Army from 1951 to 1953 during the Korean War, and retired from the Pueblo Army Depot in 1976. While working at the Pueblo Army Depot, he received Decoration for Meritorious Civilian Service for his humanitarian effort in administering first aid to fellow employees whose lives were endangered and before harm had occurred. Tobias was a member of the DAV, VFW and VA. After retirement, he enjoyed being a stay-at-home dad to his twins, Toby and Dorothy, working in the yard, building, gardening, and raising chickens and goats. He was very mechanical, often fixing tractors, mowers, etc., for neighbors, as well as maintaining his own equipment. Once the twins were old enough and in school, he worked as a maintenance man for then-Bonnymede Apartments and also built up his own lawn mowing service, where he and his son Toby worked together mowing lawns for several years. Later in life he loved spending time spoiling his grandchildren or chatting with a neighbor in the evening. The grandchildren would often be found outdoors with their Pampo, and if we didn't stop by for a couple days he would call wondering when they were coming over next. He loved nothing more than to be outside in the fresh air and always had to be doing something. He was a restless spirit who could not seem to rest and was always on the move. Special thanks to family friends, Larry Roney and Pam Ginther, and to the staff at Westwind Campus of Care, especially nurses Ginger, Mariah, Kacey, Kollette, Darren and Susan; CNAs Diana, Stephanie and countless others whose names I did not get to know; and the Sangre De Cristo Hospice.

Marold, Roswitha
Roswitha Marold - Huerfano World Journal - January 20, 2011 - Plane goes down in Huerfano County - Huerfano and Custer County Search and Rescue personnel and Civil Air Patrol Squadrons were summoned out around 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon after receiving information that an airplane may have crashed in one of the counties. A 1997 model Piper Turbine Malibu, bearing registration number N727MC, was on a flight from Phoenix, Arizona to Pueblo, Colorado.  While cruising at 20,000 feet, ATC (Air Traffic Control) received a distress call from the pilot stating he could not hold altitude and was descending over the Sangre de Cristo mountains about 50 miles west of Pueblo.  The Malibu was losing altitude at a rate in excess of 1600 feet per minute.  Denver ATC tracked the Malibu and lost radar contact when the aircraft descended below its range.  ATC computed a speed, heading and descent trajectory and identified four possible areas for a crash, two in Huerfano County and two in Custer County.  According to Capt. Robert Pruiksma with Custer County Search and Rescue, terrain in the search areas averaged 10,500 feet and was heavily wooded.  An aircraft could be swallowed up in the trees and be very hard to see.  Searchers were further inhibited by snow showers, fog and low visibility. Kirtland AFB in New Mexico launched two Blackhawk helicopters and Civil Air Patrol was able to provide one airplane to aid the search, however, the visibility was too low for object identification.  However, N727MC was equipped with an ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter) that since 1973, has supplied location information for downed aircraft.  The helicopters were able to provide coordinates for the signal and direct ground crews to the area.  Poor weather required the search to be called off for the night and resumed the next morning. At approximately 3:30 p.m. on Monday, while Huerfano Search Coordinator Deputy Joseph “Gunny” Albano worked with teams on the Huerfano County locations, the aircraft wreckage was located by search personnel just into Huerfano County one mile east of Blueberry Peak.  According to Lt. Col. Mike Daniels, a spokesman with the Colorado Wing of the Civil Air Patrol,  rescuers found the aircraft wreckage containing the pilot/owner of the plane, 66 year old Dr. Michael Welton of Waterloo, IA and his passenger Roswitha Marold, a retired businesswoman also from Waterloo.  Both occupants were pronounced dead at the scene, and the severity of the wreckage,  poor weather and remote location required waiting another day before the bodies could be removed.   Dr. Welton was an experienced pilot holding a Private Pilot license with an Instrument Rating. Weather at the time had caused two other aircraft to deviate from the same course and make precautionary landings at nearby airports.  Severe ice is being looked at as a contributing factor.  While the Malibu is equipped for flight into ice conditions, no aircraft is authorized to fly in severe conditions. Search personnel credited the ELT signal with aiding a quick find.  ELT's have been required on most aircraft since 1973, following an Alaska accident in which two congressmen disappeared and the wreckage has never been found. The accident is being investigated by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) and the final results will not be available for several months.

Marquardt, George William IV
George W. Marquardt - The Chicago Tribune - May 10, 1979 - George W. Marquardt, 84, a former Chicago auto parts manufacturer, died Wednesday in St. Petersburg, Fla., where he had been living in retirement. Mr. Marquardt, a longtime Evanston (Illinois) resident, was a retired Army lieutenant colonel who served in both world wars. He is survived by his wife, Josephine; a daughter, Mrs. Marion Lampe; two sons, William and Alexander; and seven grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday in the First Presbyterian Church, 1419 Chicago Av., Evanston. [Contributor's note: George William Marquardt IV for many years was a summer resident of Cuchara, CO, until late in his life when his health no longer permitted. In the 1960s he was chapel board chairman when the Cuchara Chapel Scholarship Program began. At the time, Huerfano County high school graduates were not going on to college and he saw the scholarship program as a way to change this. Some consider him to have founded the program; in any case he was a longtime and generous supporter of the fund. His daughter, Marion, recalls that they started out with five scholarships at $500 each. The program has continued to grow from there.]

Marquez, Antonio
Antonio Marquez - Colorado Springs Gazette - July 12, 2005 - Fourth Judicial District prosecutors on Monday charged a Pueblo County man with first-degree murder in the death of a man who was shot and burned in eastern El Paso County. Ramiro Castillo Vargas, 18, faces life in prison or the death penalty if convicted in the death of 24-year-old Antonio Marquez of Colorado Springs. Vargas is being held without bail. Vargas will return to court Aug. 5 for a hearing in which a judge will decide whether prosecutors have enough evidence to try him. Prosecutors also charged two other members of the Vargas family with accessory to murder. Brenda Lee Vargas, 38, of Colorado Springs and Moses Vargas, 39, of Alamosa are accused of concealing evidence. Judge Thomas Kane on Monday lowered Moses Vargas' bail to $85,000 from $500,000 after Vargas' lawyer argued it was excessive. Sarah Christensen, who asked that bail be lowered to $10,000, called witnesses who described Moses Vargas as a devoted father of four and a respected Alamosa businessman. Deputy District Attorney Robyn Cafasso, however, said Moses Vargas discouraged witnesses from talking to police about the death of Marquez. She said he might interfere with evidence gathering or threaten witnesses if he bonds out. Cafasso said Moses Vargas has family in Mexico, making him a flight risk. She asked Kane to keep bail at $500,000. A bond reduction hearing for Brenda Vargas, whose bail is $500,000, is expected to be scheduled next week. Meanwhile, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office is seeking Ramiro Vargas' cousin, Gerald Albert Vargas, 18, of Colorado Springs. He is wanted on suspicion of first-degree murder in Marquez's death. Marquez's burned body was found June 14 along South Blaney Road near Colorado Highway 94. Gerald and Ramiro Vargas knew Marquez. Investigators haven't said which is the alleged shooter or if both are suspected of shooting him. According to an arrest affidavit, several people were with Marquez in a Dodge Durango when he was killed. An argument about money broke out, and he was shot several times while sitting in the back seat. The next morning, at Brenda Vargas' Lassen Drive house, Moses Vargas helped dispose of clothes worn during the killing, authorities said in the affidavit. He threatened to kill anyone who talked, the affidavit says. Brenda Vargas helped Moses Vargas attempt to destroy evidence and lied to investigators about her role, the affidavit says. Colorado Springs Gazette - November 21, 2006 - Pueblo Man Convicted in Slaying - Teen Guilty of 2 Felonies in 2005 Shooting - A Pueblo man was acquitted of murder Monday, but a jury convicted him of helping plan and carry out the slaying. Ramiro Vargas, 19, was convicted of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and being an accessory to murder, both felonies, in the June 2005 shooting death of Antonio Marquez, 24. Because jurors found the conspiracy was a crime of violence, he could face up to 48 years in prison. Jurors deliberated about eight hours Friday and Monday after the week long trial. “I kind of knew that he wouldn't get convicted of murder,” said Marquez's mother, Norma Ramirez. “But at least he didn't walk.” Marquez was shot numerous times, allegedly over drug deals. His body was doused with gasoline and set afire off a rural road in eastern El Paso County. According to El Paso County sheriff's investigators, Vargas was in the vehicle when another suspect pulled the trigger. Vargas helped destroy evidence and burn the body and tried to buy witnesses' silence with bills covered in the victim's blood, investigators said. “The jury worked really hard on this case,” said Deputy District Attorney Robyn Cafasso. “This verdict is absolutely proper.” Cafasso said it was too early to decide what prosecutors will ask for at Vargas' sentencing. Vargas' cousin, 19-year-old Gerald Vargas, is accused of begin the shooter. His trial is scheduled for March. There already have been two trials in the case: Gerald Vargas' mother, Brendalee Vargas, was convicted of being an accessory and sentenced to 90 days in jail; Saul Grajeda, 19, was also convicted of being an accessory and is scheduled to be sentenced in January. Ramiro Vargas, who is being held without bond at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center, is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 21.

Marsh, Hugh E.
Hugh E. Marsh - Huerfano Journal - May 13, 2010 - Hugh E. Marsh, 01/05/1920 - 02/21/2010 - Hugh believed everyone's story was important. Hugh's story began in Detroit, MI, January 5, 1920, but unfolded at Monmouth, IL when his parents E Gordon and Alys (Gabby) Marsh moved back to their home town. Hugh attended Monmouth public schools and enrolled at Monmouth College. Being analytical, Hugh majored in chemistry. Hearing a Youth Conference speaker, he felt called to ministry. On a college hayrack ride, sitting by a red-haired girl, Joanne Maxwell, a spark was lit. It became a flame leading to a wedding Christmas Day, 1944, in Nashville, IL. The flame lasted for 65 years, and is still burning. His seminary training was at Pittsburgh Seminary, Pittsburgh, Pa. Due to WW II, he graduated early, in January, 1945 and began their first pastorate at Clinton UP Church, PA. Hearts in the Midwest, in 1948, they loaded 2 yr old David and six week old Danny heading to Mission Creek UP Church, NE. Loving this farming community, Hugh become farmer enough to have a milk cow. Two children were born there, baby John, living only 11 days, and daughter Martha. His Kansas pastorates were: Garnett, Kingman, and three churches in Wichita. After a year as Developer/Administrator of Presbyterian Manor, Arkansas City, he began Interim Ministry, a deeply rewarding period. Interim pastorates were Derby; Sunrise Presbyterian, Salina; Emporia First Presbyterian; and Abilene Presbyterian. They retired in Salina, planning summers at their cabin in La Veta, CO. Instead they moved, and Hugh served 10 years at La Veta Methodist Church. They returned to family in Lindsborg in 2001, giving them time with son David before his death in 2002. Hugh's motto was: “Leave your world for those who follow, as good or as better than you found it.” He lived by that motto—fixing, renovating and building, including helping youngest son, Paul, build his straw bale house. Furthermore, he was active in civic organizations and community affairs, and became a strong supporter of Land Institute, Salina. He and Joanne dreamed into existence a Peace Garden at Trinity Methodist Church. Hugh was a humble, down to earth man, with a great smile. He accepted himself the way he was, warts and all. He accepted others the same way – a great believer that we all were one body, all God's children. Diagnosed with leukemia in April 2009, they were given the gift of another 9 ½ months, celebrating 65th anniversary, 90th birthday, and a special Valentine's Day. Joanne and family were with him when he died at home, Sunday, Feb 21, 2010. Sons John and David precede him in death. Surviving are wife, Joanne; son, Daniel, Wichita; daughter, Martha Roberts (Ralph), Lindsborg; Paul (Jill) of Riverdale; daughter-in-law Carolyn Marsh, Arlington; brother Edgar Marsh (Marie), Washington, IL; nine grandchildren, three step-grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.

The claims are on the lives of Paul Marshall and George Yamski who died recently and whose beneficiaries are entitled to $100 funeral expenses. It was only after the state firemen's Association had waged a fight for the adoption of the system, that the pension fund was created by the last state legislature. Beginning February 1, each fireman in the city will allow 1% of his monthly wage to be placed in the fund. The state has already placed $1,400 in the local fund and the city added $3,000 this year, so with incomes from the state, city, and the firemen themselves, a permanent fund will be created which will provide pensions and insurance for every member. It is said that the police are now fostering a movement to have a similar bill passed by the legislature which will provide a pension and insurance law for the police department.

Martin, E. H.
E. H. Martin - Pueblo Chieftain - March 21, 1917 - E. H. Martin, Former Puebloan, Buried Yesterday at Seattle - Was Popular in This City - Brother of Mrs. James B. Orman - E. H. Martin, a brother of Mrs. James B. Orman of this city and until 15 years ago one of the best known and most popular citizens of Pueblo and Colorado, died Sunday, March 18, at Seattle, Washington, where he has resided for several years past, and was buried yesterday in that city. At the time of his death he was 68 years old, having been born on the second day of February, 1849. His wife and three daughters and one sister were with him when he died, and his last hours were peaceful, quiet and happy. His sister, Mrs. S. W. Morgan of San Diego, California, went to his bedside several weeks ago, as did also two of his daughters who live at Twin Fall, Idaho. The third daughter lived near Seattle and has been with her father much of the time since his condition became serious, and everything that loving care and medical skill could do for him was done. To the loving wife, daughters and sisters the sincere sympathy of many friends in Pueblo will be extended, and especially is this true in the case of Mrs. Orman, of Pueblo who was unavoidably prevented from being present at her beloved brother's bedside when he passed away. During his 25 or 30 years residence in Pueblo E. H. Martin was engaged in several import business enterprises, but he was best known as a real estate and insurance man, a business which he followed for many years, and during the lively days of real estate in the late eighties and early nineties he made considerable money and was one of the best known and most faithful and persistent boosters Pueblo ever had. But while Mr. Martin made money in those days, he was one of those liberal, whole-souled men who was always spending money for the town and never failed to help a friend in need, and as a result he died a comparatively poor man, so far as this world's goods are concerned, but rich in the love of the members of his family, and the friends who survive him. During his residence in Pueblo he held several minor offices, and served on term as warden of the Colorado State Penitentiary, discharging every duty as he saw it - faithfully and well. When he left Colorado he went to California, in hopes that the climate would benefit his health. He located at Long Beach, and was there for several years, but his health did not improve as he and his wife hoped it would and they went to Seattle, where they bought a home and have resided for the past three years, but his health still failed to improve, and for the past year he has been a great sufferer of diabetes, the disease which finally took him away, despite the faithful care of his wife and children and the best medical skill that could be had. "Jack" Martin was a whole-souled, lovable man, with a genial smile and a friendly word for all, generous to a fault, and all who knew him in the days gone by will regret that he could not have lived longer to brighten the lives of those whom he loved and those who loved him.

Martinez, Andrea S.
Andrea S. Martinez - Colorado Springs Gazette - February 17, 2004 - Two Die in I-25 Crash - Victims Were in Car Going Wrong Way Near Pueblo - Two people heading the wrong way on Interstate 25 died instantly Monday when their pickup slammed head-on into a tractor-trailer about 9 miles north of Pueblo. Santiago G. Vigil, 27, of Denver and his passenger, Andrea S. Martinez, 28, of Lakewood were traveling south in the northbound lanes about 3:05 a.m. near milepost 111, south of the El Paso-Pueblo county line. Much of their Ford Ranger was crushed. Vigil and Martinez weren't wearing seat belts and were thrown from the truck. The tractor-trailer driver, Rodney Smircich, 41, of Walsenburg wasn't seriously injured. He was wearing a seat belt. When Smircich saw the truck coming toward him, he slammed on the brakes, swerving to the right, said investigators with the Colorado State Patrol. The truck veered to its left and into the front of the tractor-trailer. “The (pickup) didn't seem to slow down at all,” said state patrol Sgt. Luke Armstrong. Both vehicles were estimated to be traveling 68 to 75 mph. If drivers saw the pickup going the wrong way, no one called 911. The only person who called was a witness to the crash. It happened near a curve, and the witness told authorities it initially was difficult to tell which lane the truck was in. Investigators don't know where the pickup got on the northbound lanes. “We didn't see where they would have crossed the median,” Armstrong said. “We believe they were in that lane for a while.” He said alcohol was found at the scene. Authorities are waiting for test results to see whether Vigil was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The crash shut down the northbound lanes until about 8:30 a.m. This is the first deadly wreck this year in Pueblo County in which someone was driving the wrong way, investigators said.

Martinez, Annette
Annette Martinez - Colorado Springs Gazette - December 12, 2005 - Man Arrested in Pueblo Stabbing - A man was arrested Saturday night in the fatal stabbing of a convenience store clerk about 16 hours earlier, Pueblo police said Sunday. The clerk, Annette Martinez, 35, was attacked during a robbery at the 7-Eleven store at 804 E. 4th St. in Pueblo, police said. Freddie Arturo Delariva, 29, was arrested just before 7 p.m. on suspicion of first degree murder. He is being held in the Pueblo County Jail. He has past convictions in Colorado for theft and escape. Martinez's body was found after a patrol officer was flagged down at 2:52 a.m. by customers who had entered the store and didn't see a clerk. At least part of the attack was caught on videotape by a surveillance camera, police said. Before the assault, two other customers came into the store and appeared to see the suspect leave, police said. Anyone with information about the case should call Pueblo Crime Stoppers at 719-542-7867. Colorado Springs Gazette - December 17, 2005 - Slain Mom Never Slowed Down; Pueblo Clerk Was Working Extra Shift to Buy Gifts for Kids - Pueblo - No one ever accused Annette Martinez of being idle. She would work the graveyard shift at 7-Eleven, then go home and drive her boys to school. She collected scrap metal and old newspapers and sold them for cash. In her spare time, she volunteered. She umpired softball games and refereed basketball and slept when she had the rare opportunity. Slow down, her mother admonished. Get some rest. Martinez, 35, never would. Particularly not with Christmas approaching. She needed extra money for presents for her boys - Brandon, Justin and Christian - the center of her world. On Dec. 9, Martinez picked up an extra shift at 7-Eleven. About 10:30 p.m., she changed into her uniform. At 2:51 a.m., police found her stabbed to death in the back room. The news quickly spread through this city of 105,000: "Coach Annette", as countless kids knew her, was dead. Pueblo has homicides - an average of six a year - but few that stunned, angry residents find as shocking and cold blooded as this one. When Martinez got the 7-Eleven job several months ago, her mother, Patty Hijar-Converse, felt uneasy about her daughter working alone at night. "If you get robbed, let them have whatever they want," she warned. "Nothing is worth giving your life." Martinez didn't like working alone, either, her sister, Alicia Martinez, said, but she needed the money. Born and raised in Pueblo, Martinez left high school before graduation, although she later earned her general equivalency diploma, her mother said. Then she got pregnant and her focus turned to financial survival. Although she really wanted a full-time job with benefits, she settled for what she could find. When she wasn't working, she volunteered as a coach. That too, was about survival; it was about keeping her boys out of trouble and keeping her eye on them. "She was just so dedicated to her boys," city recreation supervisor Dave Hernandez said. Friday, Dec. 9, was a special day for the Martinez/Hijar clan. Martinez's cousin was home on leave from Iraq, and Annette organized a party. Everyone ate and laughed and mingled. By 10:30 p.m., the party was winding down. Martinez got ready for work. Her grandfather, Frank Hijar, meant to say good night. He meant to tell her to be careful on the icy sidewalks. But when he looked for her, she was gone. At 2:36 a.m. Saturday, a man entered the store as several customers left, as the store's surveillance tape showed. He walked out of view of the camera, then Martinez came from behind the counter and walked off-camera also. Police don't know what he said or did to draw her out, Pueblo Deputy Police Chief John Ercul said. But they know the two ended up in the back room. They know Martinez fought hard; she had cuts on her hands from trying to ward off the knife before she was stabbed in the neck. The man returned to the counter, where he rifled through some items, then left. At 2:50 a.m. Saturday, two women walked into the 7-Eleven. When they didn't see a clerk, they called 911. A police officer found Martinez dead in the blood-drenched room. As the news spread Saturday, police received a tip about a man named Freddie Delariva, who has convictions for theft and escape. They won't say what they were told, but when they went to his house at about 7 p.m., they said, Delariva ran and hid before they arrested him. He's being held at the Pueblo County Jail on $1 million bail. Martinez's family has never heard of the man, but as far as they're concerned, her killer was the devil himself. Now a city reaches out to one of its families: the house is crammed with flowers this week. There are the Christmas decorations Martinez put up - stockings strung on the railing and a tree loaded with blue tinsel. But no gifts - Martinez hadn't had the time or money to go shopping yet. The family clusters downstairs, answering the constantly ringing phone. They relate stories of Martinez as a child, defying her older sister. "She said, 'I know my rights, and you're not the boss of me,'" Hijar said, then laughed softly. Visitors stream through, weeping. "I couldn't stand it if I had to bury one of mine," one woman murmured. "You would have to tranquilize me." "I've got to do it," Hijar-Converse said. "I'm the mama. Mamas do this." She watches over her daughter's youngest, 10-year-old Christian, who speaks of his mother in the present tense. "She tucks me in and cuddles with me," he said, describing the nightly routine. "Then she goes to work." What happened the last time Martinez went to work is something they try not to think about. Alicia Martinez says the thing is, her sister's life was a struggle -- to make money, to care for her boys. "For the end to be a struggle as well," she said, "that hurts."

Martinez, Anthony
Anthony “Tony” Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - May 11, 2012 - He was a vets' vet - GI Forum commander remembered for dedication to fellow veterans - Anthony “Tony” Martinez had a big heart for veterans and as commander of the Pueblo chapter of the American GI Forum, he worked to help fellow veterans get the services they needed. That was the assessment of friends and family members who came to the Pueblo County Courthouse on Thursday to hear the commissioners proclaim Anthony Martinez Day. Martinez died last Friday at age 62. “Tony was one of those inspiring guys who led by example,” said Nick Romero, vice commander of the Pueblo chapter. “It was important to him that our government and our communities do right by the men and women who serve their country.” Martinez was born in Walsenburg, but lived most of his life in Pueblo. He served in the Army from 1967 to 1971, including a tour in Vietnam. He was elected commander of the Pueblo chapter in 2011. Lucille Martinez, his widow, said those days in Vietnam were an important part of his life. “That's why he was so committed to helping veterans,” she said after Thursday's ceremony. “It's easy for veterans to get pushed to the side and ignored. Tony didn't want that to happen to anyone.” Salvatore Torres, a former Marine and member of the Pueblo Veterans Ritual Team, said he fondly remembered Martinez encouraging veterans to come out of the crowd during Veterans Day parades to join in the procession. On hand for the ceremony were Martinez's three daughters — Antoinette Ruiz, Andrea Gomez and Kelsy Lovato, along with a godson, John Martinez. Commissioner Jeff Chostner, a retired Air Force colonel, said he'd met with Martinez just last week, hoping the ailing man would be able to attend Thursday's ceremony. “Tony gave me a thumbs-up, that he would be here, but sometimes fate intervenes,” Chostner told the audience. District Attorney Bill Thiebaut also was at Thursday's event and presented the family with a certificate of appreciation for Martinez's service. A memorial will be held at 10 a.m. today at the American GI Forum, 125 Hector Garcia Place, under the direction of Angelus Chapel.

Martinez, David
David Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - October 9, 2010 - Suspect sought in fatal crash - The Colorado State Patrol is seeking the public's help in tracking down a suspect in an August crash that killed three people in Capulin. Alexander "Alejandro" Quintana, 19, of Capulin, is wanted on suspicion of three counts of criminally negligent homicide for allegedly running in front of a truck Aug. 14 and causing it to swerve off the road. The truck, which was traveling at speeds over 90 mph through the small town, went off the road, hit a rock fence then rolled twice, taking out a pair of telephone poles, a tree and two parked cars. Ermidia Gonzales, 17, David Martinez, 28, and Jason Rousey, 29, were killed. All three were ejected from the vehicle during the accident. According to the affidavit for Quintana's warrant, he was in a separate car that had arrived earlier to Capulin and was waiting for his friends in the truck to arrive. When Quintana saw the truck coming into town, he allegedly told a witness "Watch this," and ran into the road. When another witness asked Quintana what he was doing in the road, he said he was just being stupid, according to the affidavit. Capt. George Dingfelder of the state patrol said investigators are unsure if Quintana remains in the area. An obituary for David Martinez listed Quintana as his brother, although the patrol could not confirm their kinship Friday. Anyone with information about Quintana's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 719-589-4111 or the patrol at 719-589-5807. Callers, who may remain anonymous, are eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 if they provide information leading to an arrest. Two juveniles also were seriously injured in the accident. One of them, who was later identified by authorities as the driver of the truck was arrested Sept. 22 and charged as a juvenile with three counts of vehicular homicide, three counts of manslaughter and single counts each of vehicular assault and reckless driving.

She volunteered at the MADA as a cook and dishwasher, and was an American Red Cross Volunteer at Montrose Memorial Hospital for ten years. She was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church.

Jesus Martinez – Pueblo Chieftain – December 14, 1918 – Will Hold Inquest – Deputy Coroner Davis will empanel a jury and hold an inquest at 4 o'clock this afternoon on the body of Jesus Martinez who was killed at Salt Creek last Thursday. The inquiry will take place at the Davis & Vories parlors. Pueblo Chieftain – December 15, 1918 – Coroner's Jury Sets Blame for Murder – In the opinion of the coroner's jury Jesus Martinez came to his death at the hands of C. Urioste. Martinez and Urioste resided in little houses in the rear of the Italian store on the west side of Salt Creek, just east of Pueblo; on the evening of last Thursday he was shot in the chest and found dead later by detectives and other officers who were called to the scene. Investigation by the officers, particularly Detective Baty, who has done much hard work on the case, revealed the information that there had been bad blood between Martinez and Urioste for some time, accusations that Martinez was paying too much attention to the wife of the other man, seemed to have become the source of much feeling, and finally Urioste packed his wife up and sent her away. About that time or a little before, the Martinez family decided to move away from the Urioste family, and had on the day of the killing been busily engaged in moving their household effects to another house on the other side of Salt Creek. Mrs. Martinez was arranging things at the new quarters and the last load of household stuff was on the wagon at the old place. Martinez being in the house probably after some forgotten article, when shots were heard in the house, and a moment later according to a statement made by a boy named Charles Coco, Urioste was seen running from the house and to wade the creek and disappear in the distance; this man has not been seen in the neighborhood since. Dr. Patterson who performed the autopsy, testified that the bullet grazed the left arm of the victim, passing into the chest and through the heart, and ranging downward, passed through the right lung and out at the back, making no larger hole at the exit than at the point of entrance, indicating that a steel nose or jacketed bullet had been used.

Joseph Benjamin Martinez Sr. - Huerfano World Journal - November 10, 2011 - Joseph 'Ben' Martinez Sr. died peacefully in his sleep, October 27, 2011 at the Colorado State Veterans' Nursing Home in Walsenburg, CO. where he had lived for the past two and one half years. He was 94 years old. Ben was born June 3, 1917 in Walsenburg to Olegario Martinez and Erminda Bustos Martinez. His older brother, Bonifacio Martinez and younger sister Mercedes 'Mercy' Martinez Lefler predeceased him. He attended St. Mary's school and enjoyed playing trombone in the school band and also walked to Huerfano High School daily to play in their band. He graduated in 1936. As a young boy in the summer time, he herded sheep on horse-back for the Bustos family, assisted at times by his grandfather Abundo Bustos. In 1937 he married Nancy E. Martinez, sister to Monica Bustos. They had three children, Ben Martinez Jr. of Walsenburg, Marcette 'Marci' Trimbell of Danville, CA and Chris Martinez of Santee, CA. He is also survived by 12 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. In 1944 'Ben' was drafted into the Army during WW II. He served in the Pacific Theater. He was in the infantry and then assigned to general headquarters in the Adjutant General's office in radio and cable, which was Gen. McArthur's headquarters. He was discharged in December 1945. He always felt it was a privilege to serve his country and to help win the war. After the war he resumed working for the local Sporleder Selling Company and in 1947 was transferred to Alamosa, CO as a salesman covering the San Luis Valley. In April 1950 Ben and Nancy were divorced. Wanting to be close to his children, Ben moved to San Diego, CA. He quickly found a job with Klauber Wanganheim, a wholesale distributor and worked for them nearly 30 years. In San Diego on December 31, 1965 he married Jacqueline Murphree and later retired and moved to Idaho Falls, ID. They called this home for 17 years. He found much enjoyment planning and creating a garden and extensive orchard in their back yard. His favorite pastime through the years was trout fishing and he taught his children and 'grands' how to catch the 'big one'. Ben was a man of deep faith, kind and honest and dearly loved his family and friends. We give thanks to God for his life! Services will be held in California at a later date. Local arrangements are under the direction of Boies-Ortega Funeral Home.

Karl Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - January 6, 2011 - Reported neglect victim dies - He had been hospitalized since November 2009 - A 47-year-old man with Down syndrome who had been hospitalized for more than a year as an alleged victim of abuse and neglect has died. Karl Martinez died Dec. 29, 2010, at Parkview Medical Center, where he had been treated since November 2009. Martinez's relative and caregiver, Michael Richard Esquibel, 44, was indicted on charges of negligent serious bodily injury to an at-risk adult, third-degree assault on an at-risk adult and two counts of neglect of an at-risk adult. Esquibel is currently wanted on a warrant for failure to appear at a court hearing. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said Wednesday that Martinez's death is still under investigation and that his exact cause of death is pending results of an autopsy. Charlene Graham, chief of the Pueblo County Sheriff Office's law enforcement bureau, said Wednesday investigators will wait for autopsy results before deciding what action, if any, investigators will take in the case. Esquibel and Martinez were cousins. On Nov. 5, 2009, medical crews were called to Esquibel's East Side home after neighbors witnessed him carrying a sheet-covered body to a vehicle. The body was later identified as Martinez, who was found weighing only 60 pounds at the time. He also had a broken femur, severe bed sores, was severely dehydrated and had a "weak pulse, kidney failure, extreme malnourishment," the indictment said. Subsequently, the court appointed Martinez's legal guardianship to the ARC of Pueblo. Stephanie Garcia, executive director of the ARC, called Martinez "a fighter" but "he just couldn't fight anymore." Pueblo Chieftain - January 5, 2011 - Karl Martinez passed away on Dec. 29, 2010, after a lengthy struggle. Karl was born in Pueblo on April 17, 1963.

Martinez, Marie
Marie Martinez – Pueblo Chieftain – December 17, 1917 – Husband Yet Unable to Find Body of Dead Wife – No trace of Mrs. Marie Martinez, pretty young Mexican mother, supposed to have died at a Mexican rooming house in salt Creek, had been found up to a late hour last night. Mrs. Martinez was reported dead by her husband on Saturday, as was announced exclusively and Sundays Chieftain when the husband attempted to direct an undertaker to the house were his wife's body was supposed to lie, the man could not find the place. The mysterious "house of the dead" still remains a mystery and has not yet been located, although the police have taken up the search. What has become of Marie Martinez and her infant son is a question to which the answer is being sought by the grief-stricken husband and father, Francisco Martinez, by the police department, and by Mrs. Perl Gomez, Mexican interpreter at the District Court. Reported dead by her husband to a local undertaker on Saturday; reported by neighbors as having left the city when told that her husband had tired of her; lead by Mrs. Gomez to be the victim of a foul lie and possibly murder for a small sum of money she possessed; father by the police to have left the city with a lover; the mystery which surrounds the case is one of the strangest which the local officials have had to deal with in a long time. They had, from Old Mexico recently, were strangers in a strange land, appeared to be simple, virtuous people and were thrifty. The husband worked steadily in Denver and they saved considerable money. Then the husband was robbed and lost part of his savings. When they came to Pueblo they had less than $100. The husband found employment at the smelter and worked a few days. The occupied rooms in the Mexican colony near the sink plant on Saturday the woman with whom they lived came to the smelter and informed the husband his wife had died suddenly. The grief crazed man was directed to make funeral arrangements and called at a local undertaking establishment. When the undertaker and the Mexican started to the place where the body of the dead woman was supposed to be the husband suddenly became bewildered and could not locate his home. Finally Mrs. Perl Gomez was called into the case. She spent most of Saturday afternoon in company with the husband seeking the house where the body was his wife was supposed to be. The request was vain, as with each failure to complete the search the husband became more and more distracted and confused. Finally he was placed in the care of a physician and a room was engaged for him on S. Union Ave. He remained at his room all day yesterday in a state of utter collapse Mrs. Gomez states that the woman with whom the Martinez couple lived told neighbors that she had informed Mrs. Martinez that Martinez had said he was tired of his wife and wanted her to leave. The story was told for a joke, but it is said that Mrs. Martinez took it seriously and left with her baby, saying the money they had would carry them far away to friends or relatives and her husband could have his freedom. The landlady claim she told Martinez that his wife had left with the baby, and not that his wife was dead. The shock of the information cause Martinez to particularly lose his mind, it is said, and he became imbued with a hallucination that his wife had died, and sought out the undertaker to make funeral arrangements. The police were called into the case last night and Detective Baty was assigned. From what evidence the police were able to gather, they thought possibly that Mrs. Martinez, who is young and pretty, had left with a lover. The police will try to locate the woman with whom the Martinez couple engaged rooms. Mrs. Gomez states that so far she can learn, Mrs. Martinez was a loving and dutiful wife, and does not believe that she deserted her husband. The husband is said to be almost irresponsible and does not seem able to understand anything except that his wife and baby are lost to him. He still believes that his wife is dead and that he cannot find the particular path or trail through the little Mexican settlement at Salt Creek that will lead him to the spot where the body is his wife is lying unburied.

The war was on the front pages of The Chieftain and Star-Journal every day, complete with combat photos and maps where the heaviest fighting was taking place.

Martinez, Salomer
Salomer Martinez – Pueblo Chieftain – August 5, 1918 – Mexican Shot and Is Not Expected to Live – A shooting which took place on El Dorado Ave. near the intersection of that Ave. with the Denver and Rio Grande railroad tracks in Bessemer about 8 o'clock last night resulted in probable fatal injuries to one man, is a case the Police Department is endeavoring to solve. The wounded man, Salomer Martinez, 28 years of age, suffered a gunshot wound to the left side, the bullet severing the femoral artery. Martinez had suffered so great a loss of blood from the wound that he was nearly dead before the public ambulance, which, had been hurried to the scene, could reach the spot. Martinez was rushed to St. Mary's Hospital in what was believed to be a dying condition, and it was the opinion of the attending surgeon, Dr. Duke McLean, that the man's death was probably only a matter of hours. Details of the shooting are very meager. None could be found among the few persons who saw Martinez fall who would admit having seen the shots fired, and the injured man himself steadfastly refused to divulge any information whatever which might shed light on the case or revealed the identity of the man or men who are guilty of committing the deed. About all that has been learned of the case is that Martinez and two other Mexicans were seen shortly before the shooting walking along El Dorado Ave. Suddenly a shot was fired and Martinez fell to the ground with blood spurting from an ugly wound in the upper part of the left leg. The other two Mexicans were seen to be running south along the Rio Grande railroad tracks, but had disappeared before the arrival of officers. The case was reported to the police about 8:30 o'clock and the call was responded to by officers Weiner and Johnson, who, upon reaching the spot gave their attention first to the wounded man, rendering first aid in endeavoring to staunch the flow of blood, and then rushing him to a hospital. All parties to the shooting seem to be strangers to the police and to the local Mexican colony that where nearby when the shooting took place.

Martinez, Sipriano
Sipriano Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - February 27, 1917 - Mexican is Killed While Walking on Railroad Track - Unknown Man Struck By Engine Near Cedar Ridge Station On D. & R. G. Road - The remains of a Mexican, thought to be Sipriano Martinez, killed by a Denver and Rio Grande engine near the Cedar Ridge Station Sunday evening were brought to Pueblo yesterday and will be held at the Davis & Vories Undertaking parlors for a few days before interment with a view of further ascertaining his name and locating the relatives. But little is known of the accident further than the man was walking on the tracks and apparently did not hear the approaching train. The engine struck him, knocking his body for some distance and death was practically instantaneous. From several letters found on his body, it is though that his name is Martinez. No other marks of identification were found and no one at Cedar Ridge knew him. The accident happened about 38 miles from this city, and it is thought that the man was walking from the southern part of the state to Pueblo. Pueblo Chieftain - March 1, 1917 - The burial of Sipriano Martinez took place yesterday morning at 10 o'clock from Davis & Vories Chapel. Interment was in Roselawn.

Martinez, Stephanie Brianne
Stephanie Brianne Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - February 4, 2012 - Judge denies sentence reduction request - A Pueblo woman who has served 10 years of a 48-year prison term for the death of a 5-year-old girl was denied a reduction to her sentence Friday. Clenteen Sue Williams, 61, maintains the only thing she did wrong in the death of Stephanie Brianne Martinez was not seek medical treatment sooner for burns the child suffered to her buttocks, backs of her legs and feet. Martinez died New Year's Eve, 2002, five days after she was burned. Investigators said the burns weren't the only injuries the child suffered and that there was evidence of bruising throughout her body. On Friday, Deputy District Attorney Bob Case reminded the court that more than 100 separate injuries were documented during Martinez's autopsy. Williams pleaded guilty to one count of child abuse resulting in death in exchange for the dismissal of first-degree murder. She was sentenced by then-District Judge Rosalie Vigna. Williams is eligible for parole in 2023. District Judge Jill Mattoon confirmed Williams' sentence after hearing more than two hours of testimony. Williams told the court Friday she has languished in the Denver Women's Correctional Facility since 2003. Her health failing, Williams said she's now confined to a wheelchair and oxygen tanks and that her days on Earth are numbered. "I have one lung left and that one's not all that good," Williams said. "My son doesn't want to hear it but he's here today so he has to. I'm going fast, but it's Jehovah's will." Williams' family attended the hearing and a number of them testified, telling Mattoon that Williams' absence has been a burden on the family and that her personality and character is that of a loving caregiver. But Case continued to drive home the circumstances of the child's death, asking family members in turn whether they witnessed Williams beating any of the seven children in the home with belts or electric cords, something Case said Williams admitted to police. The family said they never saw any signs of abuse in the home. Williams continued to maintain that Martinez scalded herself when she turned the water on in her bath. "I will go to my grave telling you the same thing; that I didn't burn Stephanie in the bathtub," she said. "I'm guilty of not getting medical treatment." Williams told the court she continues to dwell on the death and blames herself. Martinez was stepsister to Williams' grandson and she was caring for the girl because her mother was in prison. Williams said that during her own time in prison, she has taken what classes she can and is looked up to by other inmates, some of whom wrote letters of support to Mattoon. She said she works part time as a unit clerk and tries to keep in touch with her family. Public Defender Kelle Thomas argued that Vigna said she imposed the maximum sentence, in part, to create a deterrent. But other cases with similar charges have resulted in different deals and offers. In one case, Jeff Casias was offered a deal that would have capped his prison term at 20 years, Thomas said. Casias rejected the deal and was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison for the death of his daughter. In another case, Kevin Buehler, who was charged in the death of his infant cousin, agreed to a deal that capped his prison term at 32 years. "The maximum sentence as a deterrent is clearly in conflict with what has happened in this jurisdiction since," Thomas said. But Case argued that his biggest problem is that Williams continues to refuse to take full responsibility for Martinez's death. Case also noted that the evidence suggested Martinez was tortured and abused over a long period of time. He invoked the child abuse case against James Joseph Dall, who was convicted of child abuse and sex assault on a child. While his victim wasn't killed, Dall was sentenced to 75 years to life in prison. "What we're hearing today is the same denials, the same stories and the same lies that Judge Vigna heard from this defendant and other witnesses," Case said. Mattoon ruled that the facts of the case and evidence suggesting that the child was intentionally scalded "far outweighed" any good behavior by Williams in prison or her advancing illness and discomfort now. "It isn't even in the same ballpark," she said.

Martinez, Viola A.
Viola A. Martinez - Huerfano World Journal - September 7, 2012 - Viola A. Martinez of Walsenburg passed away August 22, 2012. She was born in Walsenburg, CO in 1927 to Adelina and Cecelio Martinez. She was preceded in death by her parents Cecelio and Adelina Martinez, daughter Shirley Hernandez, husband John Martinez, sisters Teresa Trujillo and Dolores Valenzuela, brother Ernest Martinez and brother-in-law Pete Trujillo. Survivors include daughter, Angela Treece; grandchildren Shirley (Kino) Treece-Herrera, Stacie Arambula, Melissa Torres and Frank Hernandez and great-grandchildren Peter Herrera, Tony Herrera, John Rodriguez, Angelica Herrera, Marisol Herrera, Tyler Arambula, Celene Torres and Christian Torres. A private memorial service was held Monday, August 27 at Church of God & Christ Jesus Walsenburg. Viola Martinez was a strong woman who led a full life with many interests and hobbies. Born in Walsenburg in 1927, Viola was the oldest of five children. Due to her father's illness, Viola lived with her grandparents, which is where she acquired her love for animals and country life. Although she did not reside in the same home as her other brother and sisters, the family was still close and they spent many hours growing up together. When Viola was 19, she met and later married her husband John Martinez. After their marriage, they purchased land in the outskirts of Walsenburg and began their small ranch. During her marriage to John, she had two children, Shirley Ann and Angela. Viola had many tragic events occur in her life. One of them was the death of her daughter Shirley Ann in a terrible car accident in 1972. Her husband John passed away before his time in 1982 due to illness. She also survived the passing of all of her brothers and sisters. Despite these events, Viola still remained true to her faith in God and never let anything waiver her belief. After John passed away, Viola continued to maintain their small ranch with help from her remaining daughter Angela, her son-in-law at the time, John, and her brother-in-law, Pete. Although Viola worked extremely hard at the ranch, she still found time to visit sick friends in the hospital and nursing homes. She also spent time cultivating a wide variety of hobbies and interests. She had an innate ability to turn rocks into works of art. To Viola, a simple rock could be transformed into a dog, a turtle, or some other animal. She was able to make elaborate pictures out of scraps of cloth and landscapes of scenes with just rocks and paint. She had a gift for free form painting and sketching as well. Visitors to her house were amazed at her creativity. She was a lively grandmother and would visit her local grandchildren and great-grandchildren, often. They spent time together playing games, learning how to cook her magnificent dishes, hearing stories, making paper dolls, and roaming the hills of her property. In her later years, Viola became extremely interested in genealogy. She spent hours researching her heritage and traveling to various libraries in order to find out more about her ancestors. Unfortunately, she was not able to continue her research due to the loss of her eyesight. The last few years of her life, Viola struggled with many health issues. Despite these issues, she still held on to her strong belief in God. In the end, despite her strength and her beliefs, her medical ailments overcame her. Viola passed away peacefully after a heart breaking stretch of pain and illness on the morning of August 22. Viola will always be remembered for her strength, creativity, intelligence, and strong spirit. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Mascarenas, Selena
Selena Mascarenas - Pueblo Chieftain - May 5, 2012 - Suspect's fiancιe defends him in crash that killed 3 - Flowers, balloons and get-well cards adorn Jordyn Carrillo's room at Parkview Medical Center. The 13-year-old Roncalli Middle School student reclined in bed Friday with bruises, stitches on her head and a broken femur and hip. Her left hand also is fractured. In the room with her were her mother, Tessa Carrillo, and two young children of the man accused of speeding on a Pueblo street, running a red light and crashing into a car that killed three teenage girls from Alamosa a week ago. Jordyn and her best friend, Jade Dorrance, 14, were riding in the bed of the truck driven by Gilbert O. Sanchez, 36, of Pueblo at the time of the accident about 9 p.m. Both were ejected in the collision. Jordyn said Friday that her own injuries are the last thing on her mind. "I am truly sorry for them (Alamosa teens). Every time I think of it, I just cry" she said, taking deep breaths as she spoke. Anisa Montoya, 18, Serina Sena, 14, and Selena Mascarenas, 14, died at the scene of the crash. Tessa Carrillo, who is engaged to Sanchez, said she had not seen Sanchez drinking on the day of the accident. "He is not the one to drink and drive, so this threw me for a shock," she said. "He is a great man. He does well with his kids," she said, pointing to Sanchez's two kids sitting in the hospital room. "He is an all-around good person. He made a bad decision and choice." Jordyn said she, Jade and Sanchez were on their way to buy some dog food at a store. They were leaving from visiting Sanchez's young son. "We held on to the truck and I had my arm around her, then I blacked out after we hit the car. I remember laying in the middle of the road and a man named Robert helped me, and he called my mom," Jordyn recalled. Jordyn said her main concern after the crash was Jade. ''I kept asking, 'Where's my sister, where's my sister?' "Jordyn said."They told me she had to fly up to Denver. We've been friends for nine years." Tessa Carrillo said when she received a phone call about the crash she did not believe the caller. "I thought they were playing with me. Everything was fine . . . It was just a shock," Tessa Carrillo said. Jordyn said the three teens have no reason to be dead right now. "They did not do anything wrong and I am truly sorry for their families," she said. Jordyn also expressed concern for Jade, who she considers a sister. "I talked to her on the phone two days ago before she went into surgery. I really miss her," Jordyn said. "She asked what was wrong with me and I told her. She said she was hurt too, but then she had to go." Jade is recovering at Denver Health Medical Center. She remained in stable condition Friday. Tessa Carrillo said Jordyn is making great strides with her condition. ''She is beyond a fighter. I told her the other night that I'd give all the money in the world to take her place, not to see her hurt. She told me, 'No mom.' ''I asked, 'Why?' and she said, 'Because you are not as strong as I am.' "Tessa Carrillo said she has talked with Sanchez since the accident and he is deeply apologetic."He's such a kind-hearted man. He is having a really difficult time dealing with what has happened. He sends his sympathy and condolences and his apologies," Tessa Carrillo said. "He said he can't apologize enough to the families in Alamosa." Tessa Carrillo said he wants to apologize to Jade and her family as well. "I don't know the feeling of losing a child . . . My heart goes out to them," she said. Tessa Carrillo said she has received several tormenting phone calls since the crash. "They have told me that I am the worst mother in the world and so many other things," she said as she wept. "We are all just trying to heal. I wish people wouldn't judge so quick." "I would do anything to take that day back." She also apologized to the community. "A lesson should be learned. Don't drink and drive," she said. Pueblo Chieftain - May 4, 2012 - Woman extends helping hand to families of victims - Becky Vialpando twice has received the dreaded news of fatal wrecks. One took her husband nine years ago. Her grown son died in another wreck four years ago. She continues healing those losses by helping others trying to cope with the same loss. As founder of the Ride to Give foundation, Vialpando has orchestrated numerous fundraisers for families in grief and in need. She'll host another one at 1 p.m. Sunday at Joey's Pixie Inn, 440 S. Santa Fe Ave., to help the Alamosa families of three teenage girls killed last weekend in a crash at Northern Avenue and Pueblo Boulevard. The event will include chile-smothered burrito plates (two burritos and rice) for $8, continuous entertainment and a raffle and live auction of donated items. Take-out meals will be available. Local guitarist Ray Peralta will kick off an open acoustics session for all musicians who'd like to play. The auction will be around 2 p.m. "We'll go until it's done -- as long as people want to eat and play," Vialpando said. She had just heard about the triple-fatal accident when one of her board members called and asked her if the foundation could help the families of the girls. By evening, this weekend's event was in the planning. "I found out they were from Alamosa and I just kind of put myself in that position, having been through it, and knew those families can't be prepared to do funerals," Vialpando said. "Doing this is just in me. I take it as God's reason for taking my man. I had so many people there to help me through my losses and the feeling that I get in my heart for helping someone else is just tremendous.''

My Brother's Stars – Our little blue star has been changed to gold, But it means all the world to me. It means my brother a hero died In the battle o'er the sea. The blue means his heart was noble, Fearless and brave and true; The gold means you died, dear brother, For the Red, the White, and the Blue. And though our hearts are lonely, We know you died not in vain; You died for the cause of the righteous, That peace and justice might reign. And when the boys come home again, Your face we will not see; But the gold in your star will be dearer by far, Than all the world to me. But the gold in your star shines brighter, In a beautiful heavenly place, Where we'll all be gathered together, And behold your shining face. Your face all shining with glory, The reward of your work well done, When the cares of today have all passed away, And our Savior calls us home. Note: Donald Masters was buried in Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Virginia.

Mather, Charles
Charles “Chuck” Mather - Rocky Mountain News - August 31, 2006 - A Colorado Department of Transportation worker was killed Wednesday morning when a tractor-trailer plowed into a road surfacing crew on Interstate 25. Charles "Chuck" Mather, 34, of Beulah was pronounced dead at St. Mary Corwin hospital in Pueblo Wednesday. He had been working for CDOT since June 2005. His wife, Leena, 39, is expecting their first child in November. Four other people, including another CDOT worker, were also injured in the accident, which closed northbound I-25 at Walsenburg for much of the day. Traffic was diverted at Walsenburg and I-25 had been expected to be reopened at 9 p.m. Wednesday. The incident happened at 10:45 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-25, at mile marker 72, two miles south of Colorado City. Robin L. Kirkland, 35, of Pueblo, was driving a white 2000 Freightliner tractor-trailer loaded with 20 tons of rock. He was in the passing lane northbound on I-25 when he rear-ended a white 1996 Toyota pickup truck driven by Bette J. Waitman, 68, of Cheyenne. The semi, while partially on top of the pickup n veered into the right lane, hitting Mather, who was operating a rototilling machine. Another CDOT worker, Gerald "Jerry" Buchanan, 48, of Boone, barely escaped by leaping off the side of the roadway, falling about 50 feet into a creek bed below. "He has two shattered ankles as the result of jumping from a bridge to avoid the collision," said Stegman. Buchanan was listed in fair condition at Peakview Medical Center Wednesday. Three other members of the CDOT crew were unhurt. Waitman and her husband, Jerry J. Waitman, 70, suffered minor injuries and were treated at St. Mary Corwin hospital. "We haven't had one of our employees injured or killed (in a cone zone incident) since December 2004," said Stegman. "It's unique for a car to crash through a work zone." "This is another needless tragedy on Colorado's highways," said Bob Torres, CDOT regional director. "These crashes are preventable if drivers would just slow down and use extra caution when driving near highway workers. The people working on our roadways are mothers, fathers, brothers and friends. Today is a very sad day knowing that an unborn child will never know its father." Mather is the 24th CDOT employee killed in a work zone since 1951. It was not known Wednesday whether speed, alcohol or drugs were factors, or whether Kirkland, who was also treated for minor injuries at St. Mary Corwin hospital, would be charged with any violations. Randall and Kathleen Engel, of Beulah, are listed as the owners of the semi, according to Colorado State Patrol spokesman Gilbert Mares. Randall Engel said Wednesday night that the tractor-trailer was being driven from Trinidad to Beulah, but declined to comment about the accident, other than to say Kirkland had worked for him for a long time, and that he "was a very good driver." Wednesday, Mather's family was struggling to deal with the loss. "I'm still trying to come out of the shock," said Mather's father, Larry Mather, 60, of Pueblo. "I didn't expect it, especially losing his mother a year and half ago. She had bad lungs, so we knew that was coming. But this was 100 percent unexpected." Chuck Mather, born in a suburb of Detroit, grew up in Pueblo, graduating from Coney High School in 1989. He worked for a small drywalling company for a few years before it went out of business. He then worked for M. Cline Construction in Pueblo for 12 years before taking a job with CDOT last year. "He loved his job with CDOT," said his father. "He loved the people he worked with. It was the best job he had. He liked the people and the way they did business." Larry Mather said his son was aware of the dangers of his job. "It was something that he always worried about because of the drivers," said his father. Chuck Mather married five years ago, and was anticipating the birth of his first child. He enjoyed hunting elk, deer, antelope and pheasant with friends. "He was a good son and a good brother," said Larry Mather. "He was an incredibly hard worker and he was more than well-liked." Services are pending. In addition to his wife and father, Chuck Mather is survived by two sisters, Louanne Mather of Mount Clemens, Mich., and Cheryl Mather of Pueblo, and a brother, Matthew Mather of Eastpointe, Mich. He was preceded in death by his mother, Phyllis Mather, in May 2005. Pueblo Chieftain - April 25, 2012 - Distraction kills, CDOT reminds motorists - Leena Mather remembered losing her husband on Aug. 30, 2006, cautioning Tuesday that "You know that it can happen in the blink of an eye." That's all it took for a semi-trailer driver trying to avoid rear-ending a car to strike Charles Mather, 34, while he and other members of a Colorado Department of Transportation crew were repaving a bridge on Interstate 25 near Colorado City. Mrs. Mather and her 5-year-old son, Chuckie, joined other relatives of highway workers killed on the job for the Colorado Department of Transportation's eighth annual Remembrance Day held Tuesday at the CDOT facility on Pueblo's East Side. It was one of nine ceremonies held statewide that were attended by state highway commissioners and honored each region's losses. But it also was a time to spread the word about safety. A great deal of focus at Tuesday's event was on distractions that are blamed for many of the accidents in work zones. Gilbert Ortiz Sr., who represents the Pueblo area on the commission, offered a personal story about a trip he was making with his wife. When she reached for a ringing cellphone and veered across a lane, he said the couple decided right then to turn off their cellphones whenever they're on the road. "Turn off your cellphones," Ortiz said. "Pay attention to what's going on around you. People can leave you a message." He added that motorists should give themselves extra time when traveling. "Leave 20 minutes early. Leave 10 minutes early." CDOT Commissioner Les Gruen, who represents El Paso County, told the gathering of family members and CDOT employees that 58 workers have died since 1929, but "we are blessed this year, the number of names remains the same." The most recent death in this region was that of David J. Valdez, who was killed in a dark irony during National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week. He was struck by a truck driven by a fellow worker. On Tuesday, officials stressed that motorists are the biggest worry, especially people who are distracted by phones, eating or even the radio. Drivers also are at risk. It's estimated that 85 percent of fatalities in work zone accidents are drivers or their passengers. Colorado State Patrol Capt. Brian Lyons, said that last year in Colorado there were 830 work-zone crashes, resulting in 10 deaths and 96 injuries. A number of states have banned the use of hand-held phones, but Colorado has stopped short, restricting their use by drivers younger than 18 years old. Ortiz said he'd like to see a full ban in Colorado. "I think it's a great idea," he said. Gruen agreed with reservations. "It's debatable that we have any muscle," he said. "I'm not sure what impact we have, but we'd be hard-pressed not to support that kind of legislation." To help motorists plan ahead, CDOT is offering a free email and text message service that gives updates on road conditions, construction projects and other CDOT news. Signing up can be completed on the CDOT website. Those honored from the Pueblo region along with Mather and Valdez were Charles J. West, 1951; Dekalb Arthur, 1952; Willard W. Hunter, 1960; Henry Kahl, 1967; Wray N. Roth, 1968; Jerome H. Falk, 1976; Milton Walling, 1995.

Mattie, Albert
Albert Mattie - Trinidad Times Independent - August 30, 2011 - Albert Mattie, Store clerk, World War II veteran - On Nov. 8, 1925, Albert Mattie was the ninth of 10 children born to Giuseppe and Jennie Mattie at the family home in Segundo. Albert departed this life to enter the kingdom of God on Aug. 24, 2011. Together with his sister, Lucy, his brother, Joe Jr. and his sister-in-law, Clara, many nieces and nephews and his many friends are left to cherish his memory. Preceding him in death were his parents, Giuseppe and Jenny, and his siblings; Mary, Rose, Arthur, Josie, Anne, Ernest, and Sam. The following brothers- and sisters-in-law have also gone before him; Bob Tapia (Rose), Pino Carnelli (Josie), Howard Birchler (Anne), Frances Mattie (Sam), and Conrad Pelletier (Lucy). Except for his service to his country in World War II where, because of his size, he was initially a turret gunner on a bomber in the Army Air Corp and later, a supply clerk, Albert lived his entire life in Segundo. There he cultivated many lifelong and lasting friendships and etched his place in the memory and hearts of many through his community involvement, sense of humor, genuine concern for others, and his overall good nature. Since 2009, Albert has lived at Trinidad Nursing Home where his personality continued to shine through, endearing him to the staff and other residents. For more than 50 years, Albert worked at the Segundo store, first for the Hadad family, then for his dear friend, Nick Ringo Jr. Even after his retirement he was known to frequent the store on a regular basis to “supervise as necessary” and help make the sausage. A devout Catholic, Albert's participation in and ownership for the St. Ignatius Church in Segundo was unparalleled. He is best remembered for his elaborate Christmas decorations, singing in the choir with his friend, Ercelia, and his general propensity to take charge of church business to “get things done.” Albert was an alumnus of Primero High School and a great supporter of anything black and orange. With some of his friends he formed the original “booster club” and actively supported the Bulldogs in many wild and creative ways. In later years he directed that same enthusiasm toward the Kennedy Community Center and the many programs it offered, especially ceramics. As a confirmed bachelor, his ability to dance the jitterbug and ice skate with his friends at the Primero ponds was surpassed only by his ability to cook pasta and bake. Albert was known to always try a new recipe and test it out on his family at the many holiday dinners he prepared for them. However, he is best remembered for his baking, especially traditional Italian holiday cookies and wedding cakes. In the final analysis, nothing better can be said in summation of Albert's life; except that he was a faithful and dutiful servant of God, and a friend to everyone. Funeral Mass was Monday, Aug. 29, 2011, at Holy Trinity Church. Entombment followed at the Trinidad Catholic Cemetery with graveside services conducted by the U.S Army Honor Guard. Active pallbearers were Jimmy Ringo, Gary Ringo, Danny Mattie, Dennis Pelletier, David Mattie and Jack Potter. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Trinidad Area Catholic Community, 235 N. Convent St., Trinidad, CO 81082. Arrangements under the direction of Comi Funeral Home.

Mavrogeorges, George
George Mavrogeorges - Pueblo Chieftain – April 1, 1919 – Rescuers Reach Scene of Death – Aguilar Mine Explosion Is Believed To Have Killed Thirteen Employees – Trinidad, Colo., March 31 – Eleven bodies, burned in some cases until identification was difficult, had been recovered late tonight from the Empire Mine of the Empire Coal Co., near Aguilar, where a gas explosion early today sent them to their doom without warning. Death apparently was instantaneous, the recovered bodies with one exception being found huddled together under piles of debris. Two other bodies have not been recovered. Grief stricken mothers, wives, and sisters who had waited anxiously at the mine entrance in the heavy rain throughout the day, aided in identification of the bodies as they were brought to the surface, one by one. The bodies were placed in a temporary morgue where the women relatives were permitted to assist in identification. Rescue parties are still at work in the mine and as soon as the other bodies are recovered an inquest will be held. The cause of the explosion has not been determined. One man, Mike Cozetti, apparently attempted to escape through an unused entrance to the mine but was overcome, and died when near escape. The identity of the two bodies remaining in the mine could not be established. Rescuers are continuing their search and hope to find the other bodies before morning. The identified dead are: Jack Futura, Fred Dussart, Abel Duran, Mike Cozetti, Mike Rossi, George Mavrogeorges, Joe Stradjet, George Fellis, Alfred Duhuart, Henry Coton, and John Lundquist. The rescuers were forced to remove piles of debris before the bodies could be recovered. They lay close together, badly burned and almost unrecognizable in some instances. A temporary morgue was established and plans made for holding an inquest as soon as the remaining two bodies have been recovered. Thirty-six men were in the mine when the explosion occurred, twenty-one escaping by an old entrance and two by the main shaft. The body of John Lundquist was recovered this afternoon. Of 36 men who were in the mine when the explosion occurred 23 made their way out in safety. The explosion, as indicated by conditions encountered by the rescue gangs, was confined to a small area of about 2,500 feet from the mouth of the mine. Wreckage at this depth barred the way of the helmet men but air conditions are good and the ventilating fan is working. It is feared, however, that the men caught in this part of the mine were killed instantly by the explosion or died soon after from the after damp which usually develops from an explosion of gas. Twenty-five years ago today the Empire had a similar explosion. Two men were killed and several injured.

George Alfred Mayes - LaVeta Advertiser - February 28, 1930 - George Alfred Mayes Passes Away - With the death of George Alfred Mayes last Saturday, the 22nd, one passes on who had made many friends and acquaintances through his sponsorship of Cuchara Camps, where all looked forward to meeting him each summer as the seasons rolled around. Mr. Mayes was born in Denton County, Texas, on April 4, 1876; he was the son of George P. and Mary Ann Mayes and was left fatherless at the age of 9 years. He married Miss Nona Kendrick at Plano, Texas, on November 8, 1906, and 14 months later moved to Colorado and bought the ranch which is now known as Cuchara Camps. Twenty years ago mountain camps were not so plentiful, and Mr. Mayes conceived the idea of gradually building up a rustic resort for people of moderate means. The place grew, people bought lots and built summer homes, until a population of several hundred people can be accredited to the place now during the summer months. In recent years the family has moved into town during the winter on account of schooling facilities. Less than two years ago, Pat, one of the twin boys, was taken from them. Mr. Mayes contracted pneumonia about ten days before his death.

McAliney, Frank R.
Frank R. McAliney - Pueblo Chieftain – October 20, 1919 – F. R. McAliney Dies at Home in This City – Popular Citizen Passes Away Following a Lingering Illness – Frances R. McAliney , one of Colorado's ablest lawyers and most eloquent orators, died at the family home in this city at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, at the age of 61 years. Mr. McAliney had been in failing health for more than a year, but the seriousness of his condition was not fully realized by the members of his family until a few days before the end. Strenuous work for several years on the government war boards, during which time he practically closed his law office, overtaxed him physically and hastened the end, in the opinion of his friends. Mr. McAliney was born at Alton, Ill. Early in life he took up the study of law, graduating from Blackburn College. He practiced his profession in Chicago and St. Louis, and later in Kan. for a time. Thirty years ago he came to Pueblo and 5 years later was married to Miss Mahar, who survives him. He is also survived by 3 daughters, Mrs. Katherine Loveland of Denver, and the Misses Margaret and Anna. Frank R. McAliney was one of those whole-souled, bighearted men with whom it is considered a social asset to be acquainted. He was public spirited and liberal, and always active in public and charitable matters. Among the lawyers of the state he was classed as a man of high legal ability, strong and upright character; he was known as one of the most eloquent speakers in the courts or on the rostrums of Colo. though always active in matters political, he was not a seeker for office preferring to assist others in reaching their points of ambition. In state, county, district and national conventions he was often an imposing figure, and though a loyal Democrat, he was liberal in his political and social views. Several times Mr. McAliney held the position of president of the Pueblo County Bar Association, was at one time city attorney of Pueblo, and at the time of his death was serving his second term as Pueblo County's legal advisor. During his practice of law in Pueblo, Mr. McAliney was for a time associated with such able legal men as J. J. McFeely, A. W. Arrington, and the late Judge J. E. Rizer, prior to that gentleman's occupancy of the district bench. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and at one time was grand knight of the local council of that order. Also a member of the Elks and other lodges of this city. Mr. McAliney was a man of magnificent physique, and was truly a big man mentally and socially, such a man as will be sorely missed in the city and the state. The body is being cared for by McCarthy's; funeral will take place at 8:30 Tuesday morning from the residence, 10 Block T, and at St. Patrick's Church at 9 o'clock. Pueblo Chieftain – October 21, 1919 – The funeral of the late F. R. McAliney will take place this morning 8:30 from the residence, 10 Block T, and at 9 o'clock from St. Patrick's Church. Rev.

McAnnally, John
John McAnnally - Pueblo Chieftain – January 15, 1918 – Provide A Fitting Burial for Aged Southern Soldier – Four years service in the Army of the Confederacy and devotion to the "lost cause" induced a number of southern people in Pueblo to provide a funeral befitting a brave soldier for John McAnnally who died at the poor farm. McAnnally who was born in Ireland and immigrated to Louisiana, joined the Confederate Army at the outbreak of the Civil War. He was a typical "un-reconstructed rebel" and although an inmate of the county farm here for eight years, was well known to hundreds of Puebloans. Southerners interested themselves in his behalf to the extent that a popular subscription was started to provide a fitting funeral for the man who had fought bravely in the civil war. Many prominent Puebloans subscribed to the fund and the funeral at 10 o'clock this morning will be impressive. The Magnolia wreath, emblematic of the South and the Confederacy, will be laid on the casket and two Confederate flags with the flag of the United States will be draped about the casket. Interment will be in Roselawn under the direction of the Whiton Mortuary Association. Mrs. Henry Jones will sing and friends of McAnnally will attend, among them the southern women who were largely responsible for arranging the funeral. McAnnally was 76 years old.

McAvoy, John E.
John E. McAvoy - Denver Evening Post - January 1, 1899 - Passed Out - John McEvoy's Meteoric Career Ended in a Mad House - The life story of John E. McEvoy was a brief chapter of ups and downs, luck and ill luck, fortunes made one day and lost the next. His ignis fatuus was the turf and John McEvoy followed it with a passion and faithfulness above that for woman. McEvoy died yesterday at the state insane asylum at Pueblo, an occupant of a cell that to his mind was encrusted with diamonds. Through all his hallucinations he clung to the vision of one horse, the fiery, seemingly untamed Cap Reese, with which in his gem-walled room he won the Futurity, and Suburban and came under the wire first in the Brooklyn handicap. It was Cap Reese that made him lose his mind and Cap Reese was the indirect cause of his death. The proudest of his string of racers, the brown horse played him false at last and McEvoy never recovered. For two years he has been confined in the asylum for the insane. Known from Chicago to San Francisco, McEvoy was a type of the West. The news of his death, while not unexpected, will cause recollections of the man to return to every horseman from the great lakes to the Pacific coast, for on every track of prominence he had been a familiar figure. His home was in Denver and here his friends and former partners remain - Bob Austin, John W. Murphy, Joe Gavin, Bat Masterson and Frank Dale. He was never deserted by them, they made frequent trips to Pueblo, saw that his family needed nothing and are now rendering him a last service in making arrangements for his funeral. John Murphy is the man who made McEvoy and this is the story of how it was accomplished: “He struck Denver in 1879,” says Mr. Murphy, “and making his acquaintance I introduced him to Matt Finehart, who was then managing my place, Murphy's Exchange. Needing some one to operate my roadhouse at the Soda Springs, four miles from Leadville, I offered the position to McEvoy and it was accepted. He had come to Colorado from Omaha, where he had been engaged in his occupation of a steamfitter. He was born in Rockford, Ill., in 1850, and learned his trade in Chicago. After managing the roadhouse for a year or so he went to the Coeur d'Alene country and Salt Lake City, but shortly afterward returned to Colorado. His start with horses was made in 1883 when I placed him in charge of a famous horse I then owned, Chantilla, who won the derby at the first year of racing at Overland Park. The horse made the fastest mile ever recorded at the track when a 2-year-old, making it in 1:42 on the half-mile track. I sold Chantilla afterward in New Orleans. When 13 years old the horse was entered in a race for aged horses at Sheepshead and won it. In his day but one or two horses could beat him. The well-remembered Irish Pat did it once in Chicago when by a fraction of a nose he won the race. The judges took twenty minutes to decide it and I lost $25,000 as a result of their decision. McEvoy went to Nashville and other places in the South with my stable and, in all, worked for me up to 1889 when I gave him a ten years' lease on the exchange. It was that that made him. Up to that time he had no money. Many a time I purchased meal tickets for him and practically kept him. Frank Dale took the lease with him and both got 25 per cent of the receipts. In less than three years he was rated at $110,000, the major portion of which was made in 1892. It was when Denver was the liveliest city in the West and one month's profits alone footed up to $120,000. In addition to 25 per cent of the receipts McEvoy was paid $7 a day for dealing. Gambling was summarily stopped in Denver in 1892 and McEvoy bought a stable of horses led by Cap Reese, McLight and Mary S. McLight was a royal-bred horse, a chestnut sorrel stallion. He was purchased from Curley Shields of California, a partner of Jim Carlisle, and, by the way, I saw the horse but two months ago. He is 8 years old and is now the possession of a horseman named Randall, who owns 'Ostler Joe. McLight is at Deer Lodge, Mont., where the state penitentiary is located. He is an opium fiend, and has nearly lost all life. His former owners 'doped' him with opiates and he has never recovered from the dose. A strange coincidence is it not, between the horse, half crazy in the shadow of a penitentiary, and its former master insane in an asylum? After he had purchased this string McEvoy went to San Francisco. The stable was secured from Shields and equally interested was Frank Dale. Cap. Reese made more money than did McLight, but the Reese horse was as vicious a racer as any racer I have ever seen. Because of his peculiar temper he had to be saddled in his stall instead of in the paddock. This was against all track rules, and because of it we were barred from many races. McEvoy's luck began to turn when he went to Chicago in 1893 to see the World's Fair. The best poker players in the country were gathered there, and it was only natural that the horseman should form one of a pleasant little party. He dropped something like $40,000 in one brief game, but he never whimpered. Everything with him kept going back until he was jobbed two years ago. It was the race of the meet at the Bay District track, San Francisco. Odds were 6 to 1 on Cap. Reese and McEvoy stood to win, should his horse be successful, over $200,000. It was afterwards ascertained that his jockey had been bribed to pocket Cap. Reese by pulling him, but the Denver man was almost ruined when the brown horse finished second with mouth open and bloody. Paresis, softening of the brain, call it what you will, set in. McEvoy was insane. He wrote me a few days afterwards probably the last intelligent words he ever penned. The letter was to the effect that he had been “jobbed.” Shortly after that he backed McLight to the tune of $30,000 when any sane man with half an eye could see that the stallion had no earthly chance of winning. Then he would rise early every morning and rouse the stable boys, commanding them to bring forth his horses in order to allow him to inspect them by lantern light. At races he would rush excitedly to the book makers offering to bet $4,000,000 to $20,000,000 on this or that horse. Tom Mulqueen and Wyatt Earp telegraphed to Dale that McEvoy was crazy. Dale went to San Francisco and brought him back. This will be two years ago next February. He left a little property, some cash and a house, where a mother, a sister and nephew reside and from where the funeral will be held. Well, there is not much to add. Cap Reese, McLight and Mary S. were sold for big prices. There was one thing about him - he was a splendid loser. Many a time when he has lost his last cent he would rise from the table with a laugh. On his horses he sunk over $50,000. Poker playing dissipated the rest of his fortune. He was liberal to a fault. He wanted a manager to be always behind him. Strange, too, for he was level headed, a deep-thinker and had a reputation from Chicago to 'Frisco for being a dry joker. May heaven pardon him!” “Yes,” said Bob Austin, “he was a thorough sportsman, well loved by all his friends. His only fault was that he played off in reckless betting everything he got hold of. Poor John McEvoy! He had a sad ending after such a meteoric career.”

When he came into the station Wednesday afternoon he stated that he was suffering from fever.

Several days without anything to eat, old age, and a "don't-care-if-I-do" attitude are said to be the causes of his death.

McClurg, Frank
Frank McClurg - Daily Rocky Mountain News - March 2, 1873 - Pueblo - Poor Frank - In the rush of excitement, and whirl of speculation over corner lots, the unseen agent makes his presence felt now and then by quietly plucking some victim out (of) the motley throng. On Thursday last the mortal remains of poor Frank McClurg were conveyed to their last resting place. Frank was not a distinguished individual; he never occupied offices of official or public trust; he dabbled not in politics, and was insensible to the attractions of Credit Mobiler stock; but the causes and lingering manner of his death are invested with just romance and pathos enough to warrant a passing paragraph. Frank was a cattle herder by occupation, and for months past had been in the employ of Hardesty & Bro., a firm of heavy cattle dealers, who hold forth down the river at or near Fort Aubrey. On the first of December last, Frank undertook to break in one of those excrescences of horse flesh known as a broncho. The brute reared, pawed the air wildly with its fore legs, and then fell over backward, falling upon Frank and breaking his left leg in two places above the ankle. The boys at once made up a purse and sent the wounded man to Pueblo for medical treatment. Arriving here the patient was placed under the care of Dr. P. R. Thombs, a physician of considerable experience and fair reputation. The doctor examined the leg carefully, and finally gave it as his opinion that it could not be saved, and advised amputation at once. Frank protested against this course of treatment, and at first absolutely refused to submit to an operation, saying that he had no desire to live with only one pin, and that he would push on to Denver rather than submit to the knife. The amputation scheme was abandoned, and the doctor devoted his skill to saving the leg; but mortification soon set in and Frank's case was hopeless. At last, when reduced in flesh and weak from the protracted pain, Frank consented to part with his cherished member; but it was too late. The medical authorities decided that the patient could not survive an operation, and during the last days nothing was done but to lead Frank's footsteps down to the grave as easily as possible. He died in the possession of all his faculties, and was full of grit to the last. The brothers of the unfortunate man - one of whom resides at Austin, Mo. - were telegraphed, but did not arrive in time to witness the closing scene and Frank breathed his last surrounded by strangers. The funeral services were held by the Rev. E. L. Greene, the new pastor of the Episcopal church, and were listened to with much attention by all present. The parents of the deceased reside in Virginia, and the body, will, doubtless, be sent there for interment.
