Karl Uffelman - Pueblo Chieftain - February 23, 2014 - Karl Uffelman, 91, passed peacefully from this earth the morning of Feb. 6, 2014, while at home in front of a fire in his beautiful Pueblo house. Karl was born in Harrisburg, Pa., on Aug. 24, 1922. After high school, Karl enlisted in the Army, and between 1942 and 1946, served in a surveillance unit as a cryptograph repairman. Following his service in the Army, he worked briefly for General Electric, where he was inspired by others to pursue a degree in higher education. Karl graduated in 1950 from the University of Colorado-Boulder, with a degree in electrical engineering. After college, he moved to Pueblo to begin his career at the CF&I, where he retired in 1987 as the Vice President of Operations Services. Karl enjoyed an exciting and robust life. He fell in love with the Colorado outdoors. Skiing was one of his earliest passions, and he spent many days cruising down the slopes at Monarch. I'm too big to fall, Karl would often say. Through the years, Karl would derive much pleasure from his other outdoor passions, including mountaineering, photography, bird watching, rock collecting, and many more. Two of Karl's biggest joys were his beloved houses, one in Pueblo overlooking the Arkansas River, the other at the Huckleberry Hills Ranch in Rye, which Karl referred to as Paradise. Karl's life was also blessed by the countless number of friends he had over the years. His friends gave Karl's life meaning and fulfillment. In 1971, Karl married Josephine Naccarato Burke, and instant family life began. His family would be a key focal point for the rest of his life. He shared his love of the outdoors with his children, Laurie and Mike, taught them to ski and was a positive force in their lives in many other ways. Karl's greatest source of joy and fulfillment were his grandchildren, Megan and Leah Sankey, and Sean and Cole Burke. Karl would continue to share his love of the natural world with his grandchildren, and never missed an opportunity to express the love and pride that he felt for them. Karl was preceded in death by his parents, Karl Sr. and Ruth Uffelman; brother, Bill Uffelman; first wife, Sara Lindemuth Uffelman; and wife, Josephine Uffelman. He is survived by daughter, Laurie (Jerry) Sankey; son, Michael (Carolyn) Burke; grandchildren, Megan, Leah, Sean and Cole; sisters, Dorothy Rafferty and Julia Valkus; and special friend, Dascha Tursi. Celebration of life, noon March 1, 2014, at LaTronica's restaurant in Pueblo.

Adolph Unfug - Walsenburg World - August 16, 2012 - by Nancy Christofferson - Adolph Unfug: Walsenburg pioneer - Seventy-five years ago Walsenburg lost one of its leading citizens and businessmen, Adolph A. Unfug who died in August 1937 at the age of 75. Adolph Charles Henry Unfug, known for some reason as Adolph A., was one of the five brothers and two sisters who emigrated from Germany and made Walsenburg their home. These included Charles Otto, known as C.O.; Conrad Frederick William; Frederick Fred August Herman; August Theodore; Wilhemina Louise Ottilie, or just Ottilie who married Richard H. Wells (one-time Huerfano County Commissioner); and Louise Henrietta Wilhelmina who became Mrs. Louis B. Sporleder. C.O. was the first Unfug to come to Huerfano County. Born in Westphalia, Germany in 1846, C.O. traveled to St. Louis in 1862 and then to the San Luis Valley with his employers. While working for the Ferdinand Meyer Company store in Fort Garland, he was transferred to the branch store in Badito in 1869. In 1872 he moved on to Walsenburg, where he worked as a builder and store clerk. In 1881 he was became county clerk. He told the local paper in April 1881 he was expecting two brothers and two sisters from Germany. They arrived in June, having traveled from their home in the town of Bielefeld by train, by ship from Germany, and more trains from New York City to Walsenburg. These four were Adolph, August, Louise and Otillie. August was 21 years old and Adolph was 19. They had the care of their sisters, ages 26 and 16, after the death of their parents. The brothers Conrad and Fred had already immigrated and settled, Conrad in Kokomo and various other Colorado gold camps, and Fred in Walsenburg. When Kokomo burned in 1881, Conrad joined the family in Huerfano County. Another brother, William, also came to the United States but kept going west, settling in California. The first stop the four siblings made in Walsenburg was in the office of their county clerk brother to receive applications for citizenship. Adolph went to work on several ranches in the Santa Clara and La Veta areas for several months, having wonderful adventures with wild horses and vast forests while learning English. Conrad was off in the gold camps, Fred was a bookkeeper for the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, C.O. was in the county courthouse, Louise and Otillie were working in private homes, and August was employed in Benton Canon's general store in Walsenburg, while Adolph was living in Schulze Plaza, later known as Aguilar. After spending Christmas with his siblings in Walsenburg, Adolph was able to find employment there as well. He became an employee of the Walsen and Levy contracting company. In 1882 the brothers, Fred, August and Adolph, started their own store, Unfug Brothers, remembered by oldtimers as the Unfug trading post. They were soon joined in the business by C.O. and Conrad. The store was a large adobe building at the northwest corner of Sixth and Main streets, and Adolph lived in an adobe residence next door to the north. In 1889 the firm advertised itself as the Huerfano County Big Bargain House. On Oct. 14, 1884, Adolph married Alice Margaret Arnold. Alice was the daughter of pioneers Benjamin A. and Margaret Campbell Arnold who brought their family to Huerfano County from Michigan in 1874 to join Margaret's father, Alex Campbell. Alex, a carpenter, actually built the 86 by 25 foot adobe structure that became the original Unfug store. Benjamin Augustus Arnold was credited with building the first Catholic Church, the county jail of the 1880s and many homes, often in partnership with his father-in-law. His wife was said to have started the first school in Walsenburg, in the family home. Adolph and Alice were married in the old Sporleder Hotel which B.A. was at the time managing. They went on to have five children, Blanche born in 1886, William Frederick in 1888, Adolph A. Jr., 1893, Margaret Gretchen, known as Gretchen, 1898 and George A. in 1900. Adolph was elected to the Walsenburg Town Board in 1892, when his brother C.O. was mayor. He also served as trustee in 1895-97 and 1906-1914. At some point he served as mayor for several terms. In 1897 he bought a ranch on the Santa Clara and spent two years rusticating and cowboying before returning to the city. Back in Walsenburg, Adolph went to work as manager for Baxter and Kearns, who had purchased the former Standley Hardware in 1894 (for $7,100). Baxter and Kearns built an addition to the rear of their store and this became the Unfug and Taylor Mercantile of Fred and August. Adolph bought into the hardware firm and became president of the corporation. While Adolph was running the hardware store his son F. William, known as Bill, joined him. In March 1925 Adolph and Bill bought the Neelley-Caldwell Hardware Company store at Fifth and Main. This became the longtime Unfug Hardware Store. After Adolph's death in 1937, Bill was sole owner until his own death in 1958. Having outlived his wife and two children, Bill left the business to his sister Gretchen, who was Mrs. Daniel B. Summers. Adolph was a charter member of the Walsenburg Lodge No. 1086, B.P.O.E., or Elks, and was the president of the Elks state reunion association and executive board. From 1931 to 1933 he was state senator, serving Custer, Costilla and Huerfano counties. Adolph and Alice celebrated their 50th anniversary in 1934 with their five children and their families. Although he died just three years later, Alice lived on until 1961.

The mother and her husband, whom she married three weeks ago in Canon City, were arrested by the district attorney's office on charges of child abandonment, breaking quarantine, and failure to observe health laws. Several days ago an unknown boy died at St. Francis hospital. He had been brought to the institution three days before by a couple who gave the names of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Meyers and said they lived on a ranch near Calhan.

For twenty-four hours Coroner Lawrence Boyle held the body in an effort to locate the couple or learn something of the boy's identity. Wide publicity was given the case, but not until Monday did a clew develop that put the officers on the trail of the boy's parents.

Girl Unknown - Pueblo Indicator - August 28, 1915 - Discovered Skeleton of a Child - While playing along the foot of a hill near the Beulah road one day recently two of the young daughters of Mr. and Mrs. P. Ruddy discovered part of a rudely constructed coffin and the skeleton of a child that had been buried there many years ago by a family that was moving through. The little girl took sick and died and was buried at the foot of the lonely hills. The recent heavy rains washed away the ground and exposed the bones to view.
Unknown Hattie - Rocky Mountain News - December 16, 1882 - State at Large - Trinidad News: On Monday a negro and two Italian friends were out hunting about four miles northwest of the city. One of them happened on the skeleton or a human being from which the flesh had been almost entirely eaten by coyotes. He called the other two men to look at the ghastly sight, and the party then came to the city and notified the coroner, who impaneled a jury and proceeded to the spot on yesterday, for the purpose of ascertaining, if possible the identity of the find. The evidence was not concluded yesterday, but it is believed that the remains are those of a negro woman known in the city as Hattie. She has been missing about six weeks. She was a tough character and of unsound mind, caused by hard drinking. A negro woman in town states that when she last saw her, some six weeks ago, she was apparently crazy, and was intoxicated; she went out of the house with nothing on but a jacket and a pair of stockings. These articles were found in the vicinity of the remains, but a dress was also found not far distant, which the woman above referred to does not identify. There was no indication of violence except that the bones of both legs were broken above the knees. The theory that she wandered away and died from exposure and hunger is the most reasonable, yet it is difficult to account for the broken limbs.

Male Unknown - Colorado Springs Gazette - August 28, 2003 - West Nile Kills Pueblo Man - 85-Year-Old Colorado's 9th Person to Die of Disease - An elderly Pueblo man has died of West Nile, prompting health officials to warn senior citizens again to take precautions against mosquitoes. All nine deaths in Colorado have involved people older than 65. The Pueblo man, 85, died Tuesday. He was being treated for encephalitis, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. He was the first man in Colorado to die from West Nile and the third victim from Pueblo. Weld and Larimer counties have had two fatalities each. Fremont and Boulder counties have had one death each. For people infected with West Nile, the risk of severe illness encephalitis and meningitis increases with age. Older people should use repellent and wear pants and long-sleeved shirts when outdoors to protect against mosquitoes, experts advise. In about three weeks, as daylight decreases, mosquitoes will start feeding on plants instead of people. Until then, health workers will keep repeating their prevention message. "I'd like to borrow a line from the dairy industry, and that's 'Got DEET'?" said Tom Wood, environmental quality program manager for the El Paso County Department of Health and Environment. "We're in the peak of the transmission cycle right now," Wood said Wednesday during a meeting of the county's Board of Health. "It's not a time to let down our guard." As of midweek, the county had recorded 51 human cases of West Nile, 19 of which were confirmed by state officials. El Paso County accounts for just 2 percent of the state's 775 cases, and health workers attribute the low numbers to a strong educational campaign and an aggressive attack on mosquito larvae. Since May, the health department has been testing dead jays, magpies and crows for the virus and mapping where the birds were found. That information was used to track and monitor how West Nile was moving through the county. Bird-testing will end today. County health officials said they now are tracking locations of human cases to determine where to focus mosquito control efforts.
Unknown Man - Leadville Herald Democrat - July 20, 1887 - Evidently Murdered - Denver, July 19 - A Pueblo special to the News says a dead man was found today less than a mile west of the state insane asylum, near a deserted adobe house, and, near the coal mine extension of the Santa Fe road. The body was wrapped in a blanket and had been dead six weeks or two months being badly decomposed. The back of the skull was crushed in, evidently by a blow. The man was evidently a Mexican and the coroner thinks he was murdered. A brass watch and some letters written in Spanish were found on his body. A laborer employed west of town says about two months ago he heard groans in that vicinity, but saw no body and paid no more attention. An inquest will be held tomorrow.
Unknown Male - Silver Cliff Weekly Herald - April 27, 1882 - Crushed to Death - Pueblo, April 24 - A man, whose name it was impossible to learn, was run over and instantly killed a short distance south of the Rio Grande round house about 10:30 o'clock Sunday night. The fact was communicated to Marshal Jamison a short time afterward by a party of workmen, who happened to be passing the fatal spot and witnessed this ghastly spectacle. This officer immediately notified Coroner Cowles, who at once took steps to have the body removed to his undertaking establishment. The Victim's left leg and arm had been crushed to a jelly, while his head was mashed in a manner to make identification impossible, Blood was spattered along the rails for a hundred feet, and small pieces of flesh were picked up at various points along the track. The remains were viewed by a large number of people this morning, but to no avail so far as recognition was concerned. The Steel works were telephoned, it being thought by the Coroner that the unfortunate might possibly have been an employe of this institution. Word was sent back, however, that no one was missing from the force. The victim was dressed in brown overalls and wore a blue jacket of the same material. His hands showed him to be accustomed to hard work. He was aged about thirty-five, weight, 140; height, five feet eight inches, dark hair, light mustache and well trimmed beard. The inquest was held at two o'clock this afternoon, and resulted in accordance with the facts above stated.

Unknown, Mexican Woman
Unknown Mexican Woman Pueblo Chieftain July 19, 1918 Unknown Mexican Woman Found in Arkansas River Had Been Bound and Gagged and Shot with Revolver in Right Ear The body of a murdered Mexican woman was found yesterday morning at 6:30 o'clock on the sandbank of the Arkansas River under the Victoria Ave. Bridge. The body was first seen by a laborer named James Morton who was on his way to work. He informed the police who removed the body to the Davis & Vories undertaking rooms. The women's arms were bound with a length of cloth which was then passed under her knees forcing her head down until she was in a sitting position. A long piece of cloth was also used as a gag, and her head was bound around with a Mexican scarf. She had been shot in the right ear by .22 caliber revolver bullet; the police think the barrel of the gun was held close to her ear as no powder marks were visible. The police fear is that the woman had been forced away by another Mexican against her will, and she struggled so that he shot, bound, and gagged her. Realizing the body would be found by someone, he threw it into the river. Detective Baty, who is assigned the case, is almost convinced the murder occurred several miles west of here and that the body floated east until it was washed upon the sandbank under the bridge. To support his theory is the fact that the woman's clothes were badly torn in places. The body would have floated lightly as a gag prevented the water getting into her mouth. Coroner Dr. Ray Taylor, after an examination the body, thought it had been in the water about 10 hours. The woman could not be identified, and the only clue the police have is that she had been seen on the streets of Pueblo some time ago; the clothing held no marks with which to identify her. Her shoes had apparently been washed off as none were found when she was picked up. She wore a middy blouse, plaid skirt, and white silk stockings. The police say the crime is one of the worst known in many years. Pueblo Chieftain July 23, 1918 The remains of the unknown Mexican woman, whose body was found in the Arkansas River last Thursday morning, will be buried this morning by the Davis-Vories undertaking company. Pueblo Chieftain July 23, 1918 Jury Unable to Fix Blame for Murder of Woman Inquest was held yesterday afternoon by Coroner Taylor at the Davis & Vories parlors on the body of the woman found dead some days ago in the Arkansas River, near the Victoria Ave. Bridge. The jury found that the unknown woman came to her death from a gunshot wound in the right ear and blows on the head, administered by party or parties unknown to the jury. Police officers Johnson and Baty testified, but neither could throw light on the identity of the woman or the murderer. Detective Baty produced a letter received by a Mexican on B St., which is alleged to have been written by Eva Biggom of Aguilar, whose former name was Eva Valdez. Until a couple of days ago, it was believed the name of the murdered woman was Eva Biggom, but the receipt of the love letter to the Mexican here, overturned the idea in most of the officers' minds. There are some however, who do not believe the letter was written by Eva Biggom, but that she was in this way impersonated for some purpose. It was written in Spanish. In the letter were a number of love pictures drawn a dove, a heart, etc. in spite of the fact that Eva Biggom is married to a soldier "over there." Mr. Baty also produced an anonymous letter or note written in pencil on a Rio Grand Engineers' report blank, which said: "that murdered woman was misrepresented; the woman never rented the room. It was the man that rented it (referring it is supposed to the room in the Columbia rooming house occupied for a few hours in the afternoon previous to finding the body.) Why don't the officers hunt the matter up?" The detective had two photographs one of Eva Biggom and the other a separate picture of a woman said to be the same, but very different in appearance. One was secured here by the officer, and the other came in the letter to the Mexican. Baty stated that the man who occupied the room with the woman came back about 5 o'clock and asked the landlady if the woman had returned; she told him she had not; he said "she will not come back." They told the landlady to register them as Frank Medina and wife. The man who received the alleged Biggom letter still claimed last night that the woman will be here soon. Pueblo Chieftain July 27, 1918 Hold Mexican As Murder Suspect D. Padilla, a Mexican, residing on Salt Creek, who was arrested Thursday and charged with being a vagrant was fined $300 yesterday in the Municipal Court. During the time he was in the custody of the police, Detective Baty was making investigations regarding the recent movements of Padilla, with the result that the police are still holding him as a possible slayer of the unidentified woman whose body was found in the Arkansas River the morning of July 18. Many questions relative to the description and the events of the case put to Padilla by the police were ignored by him, and he denied ever having met the murdered woman, although the police have obtained information that will prove Padilla roomed with the woman until a few days before her brutal death. For a time the police and many persons in Pueblo were almost positive the body was that of Eva Biggom, as at least a dozen persons who viewed the body at the Davis & Vories undertaking rooms were almost sure it was her. Since then, however, the police have ascertained that Eva Biggom is living at Aguilar, Colo., and according to a letter received by Detective Baty will visit Pueblo during the course of the next few days. Pueblo Chieftain July 22, 1918 Insists She Is Not Dead but Is Very Much Alive Woman Who It Was Claimed Was Murdered Coming in on Train Eva Biggom, who is living at Aguilar, Colo., arrived at Pueblo at 2:15 o'clock this morning, to prove to the dozen or more persons who have viewed the body of the woman who was found in the Arkansas River Thursday, July 18, that she is not dead but very much alive. Her visit is a result of a letter she received Saturday from a friend in Pueblo saying that many persons in town have identified the body of the murdered woman as being Eva Biggom, which is still at the Davis & Vories undertaking rooms. Eva Biggom, whose husband is in the United States Army, was met at the train by Detective Baty who is handling the case for the police, and he will ask her to view the body with the probability she may be able to throw some light on the now, mysterious crime. The body that was found by the police on the morning of July 18 is that of a Mexican woman about 32 years old. When found, her hands and legs had been tied together, a gag made of a length of cloth had been forced into her mouth, and she had been shot in her right ear with a .22 caliber revolver bullet. Although scores of persons have viewed the body since it was found, many of them being so sure of the body being a person they individually knew, the police so far have not been entirely satisfied as to the true identity. Apart from being an extremely baffling case, it is one of the most brutal known to the local police in many years. Pueblo Chieftain - July 21, 1918 - Woman Not Mrs. Biggom - New information received last night makes it seem practically sure that the woman found in the river near the Victoria Avenue Bridge several mornings since, is not Eva Biggom, a half-breed Mexican. The inquest will be held tomorrow at 4 o'clock at the Davis-Vories establishment, at which time all information that can be gathered will be presented.

Unknown, Native American
Native American - Daily Rocky Mountain News - September 8, 1875 - A Colorado Battlefield - A tourist in the San Juan mountains writes to the Pueblo Chieftain of his visit to an Indian battlefield. Williams creek, he says, a beautiful little trout stream, four or five miles from Wagon Wheel Gap, is where, in 1857, a desperate encounter took place between a large body of Apache warriors on the one side and a formidable band of Utes on the other. The Apaches were encamped in a narrow gorge among the rocks, about a mile up the stream, when the Utes came down in battle array and left none to tell the tale. The fight was desperate, long and bloody, but the little northern Indians were too much for the wily sons of the south. Old pioneers estimate the number of ponies killed on the occasion at one hundred, and there are human bones with other evidences of the battle to be seen at the present time. It is said there were four or five hundred warriors on a side, and the contest lasted three days, during which time about half their numbers were slain.

Unknown Woman Rocky Mountain News August 14, 1883 The Exposition The Exposition catches all the visitors from abroad now in Colorado, while our own people have learned that it is the most pleasant as well as the most interesting place possible for them to go at this season of the year... Pueblo's big tree, or rather a section of it, was yesterday placed edgewise in the main southern hall, propped with iron bars and bears the following history, painted in bold letters on one side, to wit: "Pueblo's big tree, aged 380 years, circumference 28 feet, height 79 feet, cut at South Pueblo June 25, 1883, at a cost of $250, known throughout Colorado as the oldest landmark in the state. During the Pike's Peak excitement the old tree sheltered many a weary traveler. In 1850 there were 36 persons massacred by Indians while camping near this tree. Kit Carson, Wild Bill, Buffalo Bill and other noted Indian scouts have built their camp-fires under its branches. It is claimed that fourteen men have been hung on one of its branches at different times. The first woman that died in Colorado was buried under its branches. The above facts are from good authority."

Isaiah Upson Pueblo Chieftain August 21, 1918 Pioneer Citizen Meets with Violent Death at Crossing F. Isaiah Upson Run down by Cars That Martin Street Almost Instantly Killed F. Isaiah Upson, age 70 years, a resident of Pueblo for the past 42 years, prominent member of the Grand Army of the Republic, and Southern Colo. Pioneers' Association, and highly esteemed by the thousands of people in this community who had known him during his long residence here, met a sad and tragic death at 7:23 o'clock last evening at the Martin Street grade crossing of the Santa Fe Railroad where he was employed as crossing watchmen. Mr. Upson, who had entered the employ of the Santa Fe only 30 days ago as crossing watchmen at the Grand Avenue crossing, and who was later transferred to Martin Street, went to work at 7 o'clock last night. Shortly after going to work Mr. Upson started out of the watchman's house with a bucket, presumably to gather a bucket of coal from the nearby coal-storage railroad tracks. It is said that there was no actual eyewitness of the accident which resulted in Mr. Upson's death, but as near as could be learned he was knocked to the ground across the rails in front of some moving freight cars which had been set in motion when four other freight cars, being shunted in switching, bumped into them. The accident happened within 50 feet of the watchman's house. The crew in charge of the switching operations is said to have been composed of Engineer George Pollard, Firemen D. F. Griffin, Switch Foreman H. F. Burley, Helpers A. Dennison and H. S. Adams. Adams was the first to discover that the cars had struck Upson. He immediately telephoned for an ambulance and a doctor, and the ambulance of the United Undertaking Co. made a fast emergency run to the spot. Just as T. E. Monahan, in charge of the ambulance crew started to lift the mangled form of the man to the ambulance cot Mr. Epson died. The cars had crushed the legs and hips and abdomen in such a manner that the railroad men who rushed to his aid marveled that death was not almost instantaneous. Coroner Ray Taylor and Deputy Coroner A. Ray Davis visited the scene and made an examination of the body and of the surroundings, and interviewed the members of the switching crew. The remains were removed, at the request of the members of the family of the deceased, to the parlors of the United Undertaking Co. where they are held pending announcement of the funeral arrangements. Coroner Taylor's announcement in regard to the case will be made later. Isaiah Upson was a native of Maine, where he was born 70 years ago. He came to Pueblo in 1870, the year of the admission of Colo. to the union of states, and this city has been his home continuously since that time. For 10 years past and until they entered the employ of the Santa Fe Railroad, Mr. Upson was employed as the caretaker of the Board of Trade building, now known as the Labor Temple. In this position he formed the acquaintance of many thousands of Pueblo people who will deeply regret to hear of his death and of the tragic manner in which the end came to the venerable pioneer. Mr. Upson was a member of Pueblo Post No. 8, Grand Army of the Republic, and the Junior Order of United American Mechanics. He was also a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He resided with his wife and son, Austin E., at the family home 1321 E. 8th St. In commenting on the sad accident which costs Mr. Upson his life, and which accident is said to be almost identical with the accident some months ago at the Grand Avenue crossing which cost the life of Olin H. Ragsdale, manager of the Brinkley-Douglas Fruit Co., it was noted that both Ragsdale and Upson were killed by cars being switched in the immediate neighborhood of a street crossing. One of these railroad men, a friend of Mr. Upton during many years past, said last night that it was to avert accidents such as these that the railroad men employed in switching cars in Pueblo yards had asked for and secured the passage of a city ordinance placing a fourth man in switching crews. This ordinance was not put into effect. This railroad man is of the opinion that possibly both the Ragsdale and Upson killing might have been avoided had there been a much-needed fourth man in the switching crews of the cars which killed Ragsdale and Upson. Railroad men urge the absolute necessity of the enforcement of the ordinance particularly where switching is being done across city streets, and it will not be surprising if the railroad men reiterate their request for the enforcement of the ordinance for their own protection as well as that of the general public. Pueblo Chieftain August 22, 1918 The funeral of Isaiah Upson will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the United Funeral Home. Rev. T. B. Tyre will conduct the services. The Women's Relief Corps will exemplify their services at the chapel and the G. A. R. at the grave where Rev. O. S. Reed will hold a short service. Interment will be in the family lot in Mountain View, under the direction of the United Undertaking Company. Pueblo Chieftain August 23, 1918 Inquest Results in Strong Verdict Improperly Protected Crossing and Insufficient Number of Men Says the Jury That Isaiah Upson came to his death from a shock and loss of blood caused by being struck by a freight car at the Martin Street crossing, the same resulting from "improperly protected crossing and an insufficient number of men in the switching crew," was the verdict of the coroner's jury which investigated the death which took place at 7:45 last Monday evening at the railway crossing mentioned. Coroner Ray Taylor presided at the inquest and the Dist. Atty.'s office was represented by French L. Taylor, both of whom asked questions of the switching crew members connected with the case, and who had been summoned as witnesses. The witnesses called by the coroner were Herman Burleigh, foreman of the crew, who resides at 814 E. 5th St.; Norman S. Adams, switchman, 1510 E. 6th St.; Art Denniston, switchman, 506 W. 6th St.; George Pollard, engineer, 1109 W. 11th St. and Ben F. Griffin, fireman, 215 Victoria. Mr. Denniston was the first to find the prostrate body of Mr. Upson; he thought it might have been six minutes after the accident happened. He was coming up the track on a string of cars from the east side of the crossing; when he reached the body Mr. Upson appeared to be dead. When the four cars were kicked down from the west side of the yard they were caught by Adams who had come from another track. He did all in his power to stop them before they could bump the two empties and one loaded car that stood on the same track to the west of the Martin Street crossing; he even set the brake with his club, but did not have time to get to the next nearest brake which was two car lengths from him. Result was that the load of coal and the two empties, though their brakes were set, were shunted across the roadway on Martin Street, catching the watchman crushing him to death under the wheels. There were 14 tracks at this crossing, and it was shown that it is at best difficult to tell from some little distance which tracks cars or a train are traveling on. Foreman Burleigh was asked if in his judgment there had been the extra man on the crew provided for in the city ordinance such accidents would be likely to happen, and his answer was that they would not be so apt to occur for the reason that the man needed would be riding the cars kicked off and would not have to catch them while underway and closer to their intended destination. The other witnesses testify to general conditions and what happened, but no one actually saw Mr. Upson run down; it was apparent just what had occurred from conditions as they are found, that he had been on or near the track in question picking up some coal for his shanty. Aaron Specter Lewis, of 1620 8 W. 19th St., also testified as to general conditions and that the brakes of the three standing cars were set. This being the fact, and the further fact that the man who caught the running cars which did the bumping did everything in his power to stop them, gave a good idea of the speed with which they were traveling, their weight, and the necessity of having a man on them from the time they started. Pueblo Chieftain August 23, 1918 The funeral of Isaiah Upson was held yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock from United Funeral Home. Rev. T. B. Tyre conducted the services. Mrs. C. C. White, Mrs. Charles Howe, Mrs. H. Minnick, Mrs. J. W. Swearingen, and Miss Cleora Casey accompanied by Mrs. W. D. Blaine, sang "God Will Take Care of You," "Lead Kindly Light," and "Tenting Tonight." The flower bearers were Mrs. W. P. Gaymon, Mrs. H. H. Evans, Mrs. J. C. Hope, and Mrs. J. C. Schiller. The pallbearers representing the G. A. R., the Southern Colo. Pioneers, and the J. O. A. W. were Aaron Rood, J. A. Holmes, Garner Williams, N. B. Yackey, T. Watkins and T. L. Fox. Interment was in the family lot in Mountain View.

Alex Uttasi Pueblo Chieftain October 14, 1918 Three Men Killed When Auto Misses Bridge Over Arroyo An automobile accident resulting in the death of three men and serious injury to a fourth, happened shortly after 1 o'clock Sunday morning 21 miles South of Pueblo on the Rye Road. The names of the men killed are Paul Bero, Alex Uttasi, and Steve Calavis, and the name of the injured man, who was taken to the Minnequa Hospital is Nagy. All of the men are believed to be Austrians, and were employed at the Cameron mine 2 miles West of Walsenburg. Dan Predovich was the first person to discover the accident, about 6:30 o'clock yesterday morning. He said that Uttasi was living when the ambulance arrived but died before the ambulance reached the scene. Predovich immediately called up the coroner, Dr. Ray Taylor, who notified Davis & Vories, and an emergency run was made to the scene of the accident. When the coroner and Ray Chamblin of Davis-Vories arrived, Nagy could not be found among the ruins of the car, later he was found staggering along the road 8 miles distant. He was rushed to Minnequa Hospital. The bodies of the other three men were taken to the Davis-Vories undertaking establishment. According to a story obtained from a man living near Abbey, the car stopped at his home about 1 o'clock in the morning and the occupants asked him if he had any globes for their lamps as their globes had become broken and they had been running without lights. The men were unable to obtain any globes and continued their journey without lights. Mr. Taylor and Mr. Chamblin believe the men failed to realize until too late that the sharp turn in the road and the bridge were so close and the car fell into the Scrogs Arroyo. All were thrown a distance of 30 feet. Uttasi and Bero were apparently thrown through the windshield as pieces of glass corresponding with that found in the windshield were picked out from the faces of both men; both men sustained concussion of the brain, while Calavis, it is thought, sustained a broken neck. The Ford car was not damaged beyond repair. The four men, it was learned, left Cameron about 11 o'clock Saturday night to visit some other friends in Pueblo, although no known relatives are believed to be living here. This accident is not the first of its kind to happen at this place. August 28, 1917, two men were killed at exactly the same place, and the circumstances were similar. The men killed at that time were Isham Bernard, a stock and ranch man, whose home was at Fowler and Harry Hilvitz. The car in that instant tumbled over the cliff dashing both men to instant death. Pueblo Chieftain October 16, 1918 Funeral services were held in the Davis-Vories Chapel yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock over the bodies of Alex Utasi, Steve Kavais, and Paul Bero, the three Walsenburg men who were killed in an automobile accident on the Rye Rd., Sunday. Rev. Father Cyril Zupan conducted the services and the interment was in Roselawn Cemetery.
