He is also survived by his brother-in-law, Fred Fabec and seven grandchildren: Claire, Cassie, Tyler, Meghan, Chloe, Delaney and Wyatt Gahm. George had 4 nieces and 4 nephews, many of whom considered him a second father. Young friends gravitated to the Gahm household because there was always food, structure, people to play with, another set of engaged parents to support them and more than anything else, love. The Gahm family was always all about inclusion. These individuals remain part of his family. He is preceded in death by his 3 sisters, Opal Gahm, Marjorie Jagodnik and Geraldine Fabec, as well as his wife's 2 brothers, Bob and Bill Sayers. George was born on February 23, 1925 in Trinidad, CO to Joseph and Myrtle Gahm. He enlisted in the army immediately after high school and served in the European theater, 42nd Rainbow Division during World War 2 where he distinguished himself with 2 Bronze Stars, 2 Oak Leaf Clusters and multiple other awards for heroism. He graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Civil Engineering and immediately went back to work for Domenic Leone (highway) Construction where he worked for more than 50 years before retiring in 1990. He received the Colo. Contractors Association Pioneer Award during his tenure with Leone’s. In 1952, he married Betty Jean Sayers, also from Trinidad, to whom he remained happily married for 62 years as a completely devoted husband. In 1960, the couple and their 4 children moved to Colorado Springs to be closer to work sites, but never really losing his ties to Trinidad. In 2010, they moved to Parker, CO to be closer to family. His children remember him as a kind, funny, hard-working, dedicated Christian father who encouraged them to pursue their goals and held them to high moral standards (note: Chivalry is not dead!). He often rose to drive to work by 4 AM and did not return home until 9 PM - when he was fortunate enough to be working within 100 miles. For many years, he left early Monday morning and returned late Friday night due to the distance to his job site. Those who worked for him remember him as a hard-working boss who was always in the trenches with them, working as hard as they did and showing everyone respect. He was a talented tenor in the church choir and always had his family in church on Sundays. George and Betty were early members of Faith Presbyterian Church in Colorado Springs where they raised their family and remained as members for nearly 40 years. When he was close enough to home to come home evenings, he loved acting in church plays and was always entertaining! His turkey gobble was the joy of every child fortunate enough to hear him! A memorial service is scheduled for June 27, 2015,11 AM at Memorial Gardens, 3825 Airport Road, Colorado Springs, CO 80918. It will be officiated by the Reverend Dan Adams, his long-time pastor and friend from Faith Church. All are welcome to attend and celebrate George's life.

Garcia, Francisco
Francisco Garcia – Walsenburg World – September 6, 1904 – Francisco Garcia Killed – Francisco Garcia met his death Saturday night about 8:30 between Maitland and St. Mary’s, from a bullet fired by Juan N. Pino with felonious intent. Such is substantially the verdict of the jury which sat Sunday afternoon on the body of Francisco Garcia, deceased. The Mexican citizens of Maitland were having a dance at the camp school house Saturday night when groans were heard issuing from without. Some of the dancers went out and found a wounded man on the ground and near by Juan N. Pino in a buggy. The wounded man was Francisco Garcia who has been a sheepherder for some years for Mr. Pino. When asked what the matter was Garcia replied that Pino had shot him. “No, I did not,” replied Pino. “How could I shoot you when we were both riding together.” Garcia reiterated the statement and Pino twice again denied it. Garcia was then taken to a house to be cared for and Pino drove away, as was afterwards found, to his home and St. Mary’s. Garcia died about 11:30 Sunday morning. Before dying he made a statement, being under the apprehension of death, repeatedly reaffirming that he could not live. The statement was substantially as follows: “I was on my way from St. Mary’s on horseback when I met Mr. Pino. Mr. Pino called to me and when I rode to up he abused me and said that I was a thief, that I had robbed him in my work. I told him that when any man was dissatisfied with me I was ready to quit; that he could pay me the $14 he owed me and I would quit; that I would quit anyway, for him to pay me the $14 he owed me. He then said: ‘Get off that horse and come here and I will settle with you.’ I did so and when I came up he pulled his gun and shot me. After shooting me Mr. Pino seemed dazed and partly unconscious of his actions. I felt that I was fatally wounded; I was unable to get up and I begged Mr. Pino not to leave me there on the prairie to die like a dog. Mr. Pino then got out of his buggy and helped me in and brought me to Maitland. Just before getting there he threw his revolver out at one side of the buggy.” This statement was made in the presence of many friends, of Dr. Baird who had been called to care for him, of Dist. Atty. Charles Hayden and others. As soon as the moon arose that night searchers were sent out and the gun was found where Garcia said. A warrant was issued Sunday morning for Mr. Pino and he was apprehended at his home at St. Mary’s. He claimed to be greatly suffering from great pain in the region of his lower ribs. He was accordingly taken to his town residence on Seventh Street. Dr. Matthews had in the meantime been summoned to attend him at St. Mary’s and reported him to be suffering from a severance of a rib from the cartilage of the breastbone. Mr. Pino was given bond in the sum of $10,000 for his preliminary hearing on September 9. Mr. Pino has said very little regarding the matter except that he was struggling with the man. Whether he will bring forward a defense of “self-defense” or “accidental discharge of the gun” is not known. The affair presents several elements of mystery. If Mr. Pino accidentally shot the man, what were the incidents leading up to the fatal shot? If he shot the man intentionally with felonious intent why did he bring him to Maitland, thus damaging himself? Did he intend to kill Garcia and then repent of the act? Was he intoxicated and only realized the enormity of the crime when sobered by the appalling consequences of the act now already committed? These are questions that time alone and the trial of the case will answer, and then perhaps not correctly. Mr. Pino was the Huerfano County representative in the state legislature in 1895 and is a prosperous ranch and sheep men, besides owning extensive property in Walsenburg. The deceased leaves a wife and family of five small children. Walsenburg World – November 3, 1905 – Pino Jury Fails to Agree and Is Discharged – The trial of Juan Pino for the murder of Francisco Garcia has been occupying the attention of the District Court the greater part of this week; the day was taken up Monday with the selection of a jury and the examination of witnesses did not begin until Tuesday morning. There were a large number of witnesses to be examined on both sides, but all evidence was in, each side had rested their case and argument of counsel was ended by Wednesday evening when the jury left the courtroom to deliberate upon the evidence. The case which the prosecution presented was the evidence of witnesses whom Francisco Garcia told of the trouble just before he died. Garcia’s story to these witnesses was that he met Pino just this side of St. Mary’s. They greeted each other and began talking about their relations as employer and employee, that Pino called him a thief and told him to get off his horse and come to him. Garcia obeyed and as he stepped up to the buggy Pino drew his gun and shot him. He then appeared to be in a dazed condition over what he had done and when Garcia asked to be taken to town that he might die among Christian people Pino helped him into the buggy and drove to Maitland with him. Just before he reached Maitland he threw away the gun. At the Maitland schoolhouse where a dance was going on Garcia called out some of the inmates and he was taken to a house and made the above statements. Pino’s story and defense is the same as to the meeting and their greeting near St. Mary’s and of their quarrel over the matter of Garcia’s working for Pino. That Garcia then said “if there are any differences between us I will settle them now” and got off his horse and Pino got out of the buggy. Garcia then grabbed Pino about the waist and asked if he was armed. Pino said he was and Garcia then attempted to take the gun away from Pino. That in the struggle the gun was discharged. They then ceased struggling and Garcia asked, “What are we fighting about” and Pino replied that he did not know. They then looked about for their hats and Garcia’s horse, but the horse had run away and they could not find him. They then both got in the buggy and drove on, and Pino says that he had not noticed that the horse had turned about when a shot was fired, and that when he came to Maitland he did not know where he was and asked at the school house what place it was. It is undisputed that Pino was drunk that night. This is practically the evidence in the case, Pino’s statement against Garcia’s. The case was given to the jury and Thursday noon the 12 men filed in the court and reported that they were unable to agree. The court instructed them as to their duties and sent them back to deliberate. About 5 o’clock the jury again reported to the court the same state of affairs. The judge then dismissed them. This means that case will have to be heard for a second time, and it will probably come up again at the next term of court.

Garcia, Joe
Joe Garcia – Walsenburg World – August 21, 1919 – Dust Explosion Kills 18 at Ojo, Five Escape – Helmet Crew Rush from Trinidad – Presence of Gas and Falls of Rock Delay Reaching Last Four – The worst explosion that has ever taken place in Huerfano County occurred Monday at Oakview, the mining camp of the Oakdale Coal Company 25 miles west of town. It happened in the older workings of the company where 40 miners are employed. The first reports gave the number of dead at 35 or 40, but a checking out of the men brought the casualties down to a smaller number. Three found their way out through an old entry, and of the first three rescued, two are alive, although badly burned. Up to the next morning 12 dead had been removed and later two more were added to the list, but it was necessary to force fresh air into the mine passages before the remainder could be reached. The number then left was six and one more was gotten out Wednesday. Help was rushed to the scene of the disaster, helmet crews and first aid teams from the other Huerfano and Las Animas County mines and it was through their efforts that it was possible to get the men out so soon. One accident occurred that nearly lost one of the rescuers his life. He and another man were bringing out “Big Steve” Christopher, the fire boss, over a big fall of rock when he stumbled and fell on his breathing bag. It’s a miracle that he did not break the bag and cause his asphyxiation with gas. James Dalarumi was the leader of the rescue crew. The cause of the explosion has not been definitely determined, but it is thought that possibly a small explosion of gas exploded dust in the mine. Possibly some of the men secreted matches about their person, though it is the habit to have all the men searched before they enter the mine. The explosion was unusually heavy and the shock was felt for some distance away from the mine, though there was no outside upheaval, but a cave in and a heavy fall of rock on the inside. There were about 100 diggers employed in the Oakview mine. The explosion occurred in the sixth south entry were about 40 men were working. The men working in the other entries got out safely. Superintendent Britton went into the mine shortly after the explosion and penetrated into the gas area, but was overcome, and had to be removed and put to bed. Mine Inspector Thompson of Trinidad and State Mine Inspector Dalrymple of Denver arrived on the scene as speedily as possible. Sheriff Neely and Coroner Thorton also left immediately after hearing of the accident. The dead are: Mike Johnson, single; Juan Balteira, single; John Soltis, who leaves a wife and three children; Frank Pajk, leaving wife and boy of 17; John Macconi, leaving wife and two children; James Blye, leaves wife and child; Joseph R. Franks, known to many in Walsenburg, leaves wife and child; Andrew Guilano, leaves wife and child; Magil Muzzieg, single, an old Mexico miner; James T. Ingram, leaves wife and two children. He and his grandson, A. Oxford, were found locked in each other’s arms. A. Oxford, single; Charles Monson, leaves a wife; Joe Margulski, leaves a wife; Joe Garcia, a soldier boy, leaves a wife and child; Tony Barela, single; William Christopher, single; John Fassaro, single; Frank Divechio, single. At 11 o’clock this Thursday night the bodies of the last three, John Soltis, Frank Divechio, and Frank Pajk, were taken from the mine and have since been removed to town. The coroner’s inquest will be held at 10 o’clock Monday morning at Walsenburg. Two of the dead miners were members of the Maccabee Lodge; Joseph R. Franks in Walsenburg and Joe Margulski of the Denver Tent. The body of the latter was shipped to Denver Thursday evening where he will have a Maccabee funeral. The funeral of Joseph Risdon Franks will be held in Walsenburg Sunday morning at 10 o’clock under the auspices of the Walsenburg Tent of the Maccabees.

Garcia, Julian
Julian Garcia - Pueblo Chieftain - May 5, 2015 - 1989 Bessemer death remains unsolved - Julian Garcia was an ex-steelworker, lived alone - Julian Garcia was found dead in a pool of his own blood just hours after he was seen walking around in his neighborhood. It was a homicide police have been unable to solve. Garcia, a retired steelworker, was found dead in his home on the 900 block of Spruce Street around 5:45 p.m. on June 12, 1989. He was 67 years old. A friend of Garcia’s, who police said was coming over to visit, found him in a pool of his blood in the dining room. Garcia was believed to have lived alone. The homicide happened just hours after Garcia was out and about in the community. Neighbors reported seeing him walking around the neighborhood at about 2 p.m. that day. “He had been walking around so sometime between 2 and 5:45 p.m. is when this homicide happened but we don’t know exactly when it did,” said Andy McLachlan, a deputy chief with the Pueblo Police Department who oversees the investigations bureau. An autopsy performed the day after Garcia was found dead showed that two weapons were used, but just one caused his death. “There was some sort of blunt object then a sharp object, probably a knife,” McLachlan said. “He had blunt force trauma to his head, which was the cause of death, but then he had knife wounds in his neck as well. Those weren’t listed as a cause of death.” Police didn’t recover any weapons at the scene. The friend who found Garcia’s body told police when he arrived the front door had been forced open and was being held in place by a chair, according to a story published in The Pueblo Chieftain on June 14, 1989. The back door to the residence was wide open when he arrived. McLachlan said robbery was at the time and still is believed the primary motive in the homicide. Garcia’s empty wallet was found on a nearby table. “Statements from people then indicated he would’ve had money and there was none so robbery is the likely motive,” McLachlan said. In The Chieftain story, neighbors described Garcia as a loner. He had lived at the one-story home for 14 years. “He had no history of problems,” then-Capt. Ruben Archuleta of the police department told The Chieftain. “He didn’t frequent any bars and had a set routine of eating in area restaurants.” The initial investigation into Garcia’s homicide turned up little and police haven’t arrested any suspects in the case. “We’ve got zilch,” Archuleta told The Chieftain. “It’s going to be difficult unless someone saw something.” Garcia’s murder and two similar ones in 1988 had elderly Puebloans worried. In both of those cases, elderly victims had their throats slashed during robbery attempts. One victim, Charles Cardenas, 67, was found dead in the living room of his home on the 1200 block of Cedar Street in April 1988. His murder remains unsolved. The body of 79-year-old Mike Maltony was found in his apartment on the 1200 block of Elko Avenue one week later. A man pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in Maltony’s death. Garcia’s homicide was part of a bad crime stretch for the Bessemer area. Including Garcia’s homicide, there were six murders or disappearances reported in Bessemer from 1987 to 1991, according to a Chieftain story from January 1991. One of the murder victims was found in Bessemer but may have died elsewhere. Police said at the time that they did not believe the area had an unusually high murder count, but rather that the series of murders and disappearances were coincidental. “Just like right now, we’ve got several homicides happening in a short period of time but it doesn’t mean it will continue,” Archuleta told The Chieftain in that January 1991 story. The police department reviews a number of cold cases each year to see if there is any evidence in them that can be retested now that technology, especially DNA technology, has made such advancements. Garcia’s case is one that will be looked at in the next couple of years, according to McLachlan. “We had some leads back then but they didn’t pan out, but one of the things now with more modern science and stuff we have is there’s some stuff we may be able to take and put into the lab and get some results back,” McLachlan said. “If there’s any DNA, and it may come back to be all his own, but we never know until we send it in.”

Gideon, Charles
Charles Gideon - Walsenburg World - May 2, 1901 - A Coal Miner Electrocuted - The first death or serious accident since the mines in this vicinity were strung with electric wires occurred last Thursday in the Pictou Mine after this paper went to press. Charles Gideon, a colored miner was employed as a driver in the mines and in an effort to remove a sprag from the wheel of a car that he had drawn to the mouth of the entry he came in contact with the wires and was instantly killed. The coroner made a careful investigation of the cause of the death and empanelled a jury to assist in its determination. It was discovered that in the place where Gideon came in contact with the wire there was a damp place in the mine which would tend to weaken the insulation and further that he was on the left side of the car while the provisions of the entries and slopes throughout the mine is for the work to be done on the right side away from the wire which is strung on the left. The examination also disclosed that the wire is properly insulated with weather proof insulation and fastened to the props on hard wood pegs and glass insulators. The electrician was of the opinion that either a wire had become grounded or that Gideon in working on that side had broken the circuit and had himself become a conductor and received the entire charge through his body. His body was charred and blacked and he was beyond the reach of medical attendance which was offered at once by the company physician, Dr. T. D. Baird. The body was accompanied to the cemetery on Friday by numerous friends who extended to his sorrowing wife what consolation they could. As the funeral procession was leaving the cemetery a run-away occurred that resulted in the breaking to pieces of one of W. H. Gould’s new buggies, and allowing the team to escape. Two colored women were in the carriage and were thrown out and badly bruised and cut, but not seriously.

Gittings, J. B.
J. B. Gittings – Walsenburg World – December 10, 1914 – The Toll of the Year – (Prof. S. N. Andrews.) Address delivered at Elks Memorial services Sunday afternoon. Exalted ruler, brothers and friends. Each year, nature demands her toll of those who pass along the highway of life. From each individual she ejects a payment; he must pay a price for his right to existence. Likewise every institution must pay its share of nature’s levy upon mankind. There is a law of compensation in nature. “Earth gets its price for what Earth gives us,” says the poet. The past year has demanded a heavy toll of you, my brothers. Six of those who were with us either in body or spirit only met a year ago today, are now numbered among “our absent brothers.” More have been taken during the past year than during the entire preceding history of our large. So this “Lodge of sorrow” is not without special significance to all of us. It is eminently fitting and proper that a day be set apart, upon which to call the role of the departed brothers, and do honor to their memory. This is a solemn duty and should afford food for serious thought and reflection. Jay. B. Gittings was born at Terry hot, Indiana, January 18, 1852. He was educated in the schools of his native state, came west, finally as far as Colorado where he engaged in a general contracting business until his retirement in 1913. His last year of life was spent with a sister in Iowa, where he died a nine 1914. Brother Gittings had a wide circle of friends and associates who felt a keen sense of personal loss when he was taken away. For he was a loyal friend, a good, true citizen, and a worthwhile man. As a charter member of this Lodge he was one of those who labor to build it up, and of Brother Gittings, we can say he was a man among men and a true and loyal brother Elk.

His ever-present smile would melt the hearts of those around him. He had been breaking nurses’ hearts since his birth on Dec. 16, 2008. Though he knew few words, his voice could always be heard. Gavyn’s grandma, Tonnia, was the first person to hold Gavyn in her arms, and he rests in her arms now. Music was always in his life; he loved to bounce and sing. Gavyn loved water and swimming; he was quite a little fish when given the chance. He loved spending time with his Papa John. They were the best of buddies. After years of inability to be in the sunshine, he was recently able to withstand the heat and he loved it. He would seek out the sunniest spot and bask in the warmth and light. He loved his Auntie Elaine. He was always so happy to see his sister, Bella. His mama, Amy’s, life began the day Gavyn was born, and together they were a mighty force to be reckoned with. The love and joy between them was endless. He loved his daddy, Nick; they loved trucks and cars, and he hated being away from Daddy. Nick was his protector. Gavyn was our light; he could not be without a smile. If he saw you coming, he would meet you with a smile that would light up a thousand nights. Gavyn leaves behind his parents, Amy and Nick; his grandfather, John; his aunt, Elaine; his special grandma, Tracy; great-grandma, Carol Stradinger; many cousins, uncles, great-aunts and uncles; his sister, Ysabella; Matt Alley, Tammy, Cam, Tiffany, and lots of other family and friends. We are grateful to his caregivers, nurses, therapists and teachers. You provided much love, support and dignity that enriched Gavyn’s life greatly. With Gavyn’s passing, we remind others that his life is one to be celebrated. We will miss his sweet, bright smile every day, but he will remain ever in our hearts. We are so grateful for the wonderful, dear memories we have together, and it has been our greatest honor and privilege to be his parents.

Glenn, Isabella (Sister)
Isabella Glenn - Chronicle News - December 19, 2005 - Sister of Charity of Cincinnati Isabella Glenn died December 14, 2005 at Mother Margaret Hall nursing home, Mount St. Joseph, Ohio, at the age of 101. Born as Alice Glenn in Aspen, Colo., on February 2, 1904, she was a Sister of Charity for 84 years. An educator all her life, Sister Isabella began as a primary teacher at St. Mary, Marion, Ohio, in 1922 with 72 second and third grade pupils. Three years later she moved to the junior high at St. Mary, Albuquerque, N.M. From 1932 on she was a secondary teacher in Pueblo and Trinidad, Colo.; Albuquerque, N.M.; Chicago, Ill.; Denver, Colo.; Xenia, Ohio (as principal); Lansing and Bay City, Mich.; and Chillicothe, Ohio, where she served as both assistant principal and principal from 1970 to 1974. She returned to Trinidad Catholic, Trinidad, as principal and speech teacher until 1996. She continued to minister there for the next three years as speech teacher until her retirement in 1999. With her bachelor’s degree from the College of Mount St. Joseph, Sister Isabella received a master’s from the University of St. Louis. She spent graduate summers at Catholic University, University of Denver, Marquette University, Eastern Michigan, Ohio Wesleyan and Ohio University. “Sister Isabella was a remarkable woman,” said Sister Jean Patrice Harrington, former Western Provincial and long-time friend. “She was totally dedicated to education and working with the students to bring the best out of them.” For 10 years she worked summers with Sister Mary Janet Miller building curriculums at Catholic University in an effort to integrate Christian living into all courses taught in Catholic schools. Besides teaching Latin, English, speech and drama, Sister Isabella also taught world history, government, chemistry, geometry, algebra, and journalism. While in Chillicothe, Sister Isabella worked with the NAACP for fair housing, especially for African Americans. There a child called them “God Ladies.” During her last years in Trinidad, she sponsored a produce share program for the poor and elderly. Trucks from Pueblo brought produce to Trinidad where she helped pack bags for distribution. At her departure after 18 years from Bishop Flaget High School, Chillicothe, Sister Isabella received a Book of Testimonials from the Bishop, the Governor and the Superintendent of Schools. Her most cherished letter was written by a priest whom she had taught her first year there. He wrote, “If students were exposed to just one teacher of Sister’s caliber in twelve years, it would make parochial education worthwhile.” Sister Isabella coached her debate and speech teams at Trinidad Catholic to state and national tournaments. In recognition she was inducted into the National Forensic Hall of Fame in 1997, and was named Woman of the Year in 1999 by Beta Sigma Pi. In 2000, she received the Mother Seton Award as a woman of faith and of global concerns for justice in society and the Church. “Sister Isabella was a woman who was a friend of God,” said Sister Donna Bryant, her colleague and friend since 1983 at now Holy Trinity Academy, Trinidad, Colo. “She touched many lives through her teaching, wise counsel, prayer and friendship.” An avid reader, Sister Isabella loved Louis L’Amour and other good western authors. Her favorite book was the Psalms. She was a loyal Bronco fan and loved a good game of pinochle. “Sister Isabella was one of my heroes,” said Sister John Miriam Jones, one of her long-time friends. “She had more integrity than anyone I know – an honest woman and profoundly deep. She was a marvelous conversationalist.” Sister Isabella was preceded in death by her parents, Martin and Catherine Glenn; her sister Margaret and her brother Edward. She is survived by many nieces and nephews. Visitation will be Wednesday, December 21, 2005 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Heritage Room at the Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse of the Sisters of Charity, 5900 Delhi Rd., Delhi Township, Ohio.

Gleyre, William
William Gleyre – Walsenburg World – December 20, 1889 – Fearful Railway Accident – Last Tuesday night, about 9:30 o’clock, the most fearful railway accident that ever happened in this part of the country occurred on the D & RG about 4 miles west of Walsenburg. It was a heavy freight train of 30 cars, with two engines in front, coming down a grade of over 90 feet to the mile when the train broke into three sections. The two engines, as soon as they were cut off from any control of the train, threw open their throttles and began the race for life. They did not know that the conductor and all the brakeman were cut off by another break leaving 24 heavy loaded cars, with nothing to check their fearful force, fairly flying after them. At first the engines gained perhaps a mile, then the wild train so much heavier began to close in on them more than a mile a minute and at the end of about 4 miles the race of death closed with a crash most fearful. The second engine was hurled from the track and brave engineer William Gleyre and fireman Thomas Baker met instant death in the wreck, buried deep and fearfully mangled. Brakeman W. H. Farringer had an arm broken and some internal injuries, also D. W. Edmonston was slightly injured but not fatally. The front engine and crew was broken loose and escaped by a miracle. Heavy timbers were thrown 200 feet by the force of the collision. Seventeen cars of cattle and eight of lumber were splintered and piled up in one massive wreck and most of the cattle killed outright. A few escaped but all that were very badly wounded were shot. Train Master Walker says it was the worst wreck he ever saw. The last section, consisting of caboose and six cars, was held down by the brakes and ran into the wreck lightly and was saved. Passengers were transferred and by Wednesday night the wreck was cleared. Dr. Sletcher attended the wounded. Hundreds visited the wreck. Walsenburg World – December 27, 1889 – The funeral service of the young engineer William Gleyre, who was killed in the terrible accident near Walsenburg on Tuesday night, was held on Thursday afternoon at the family residence, No. 17, Block M. There was a large gathering of friends present, and the occasion was truly a very sad one. Rev. J. C. Hay, who united Mr. Gleyre in marriage to Miss Anna Deladar less than two years ago, preached a short and most impressive sermon. He was visibly affected by the sad scene and there was scarcely a dry eye in all the large concourse gathered there to pay their last respects to the dear friend whose young life had been so suddenly terminated, and under circumstances that seemed most cruel and void of everything that would in the least mitigate the awful grief of the bereaved wife and brother and sister to the departed husband and father. The remains were taken to Mountain View Cemetery and placed by the side of his brother, Lon, who was killed about one year ago. Pueblo Star.

Wednesday morning Mr. Gonzales left his sheep in the care of his brother Pedro and of Anastasio. When the storm came an arroya separated them from the camp, and a sudden flood separated them from each other, Anastasio, who was only 13 years old, being with the larger flock. All night and the next forenoon the little fellow walked around watching his flock in the heavy storm of rain and snow, without food or shelter, without even the protection of a gum coat. When the flocks were again united Pedro found Anastasio too much exhausted to reach the camp, and after efforts to carry him, left for camp, at his appeal to go and bring him some food and coffee. When he returned with these and a horse, Anastasio lay dead near where he had left him. Pedro Gonzalez reached the home of the mother of Mrs. Gonzales at Cucharas on Saturday evening and telegraphed at once to Mr. and Mrs. Gonzales who are utterly overcome by the shock. Anastasio was a pupil in the schools here, and expected to come back this week to remain in school the balance of the term. His body was interred in the family Cemetery near the residence of Mrs. Miguel Vallejos at Cucharas on Monday afternoon. Mr. Gonzales and family have many friends who sympathize deeply with them in their deep affliction.

Gonzales, Mary N.
Mary N. Gonzales - Chronicle News - November 20, 2013 - Mary N. Gonzales, 101 years old, peacefully ended her journey through life on November 18, 2013 after spending her remaining days amidst her family. Brought into this life as a fragile infant weighing only five pounds, Maria Natividad Torres was born at her home in Vermejo, NM, two months earlier than expected. Immediately after her delivery by her Grandma Antonita, Maria was wrapped securely in a handmade blanket and tucked into a small box, which was placed on the edge of the open door of a warm oven. One hundred and one years ago, on June 28, 1912, in this makeshift incubator, Maria Natividad who preferred to be called Mary N., began a life during which she would live primarily in Valdez, Colo. and later in the Trinidad Inn Nursing Home. Mary was the remaining child born to Jose Bonifacio Torres and Secundina Gurule. Her father, Bonifacio was killed in a mining accident in 1937 in the Frederick Coal Mine in Valdez, Colo. When asked one day by her daughter Margaret, who she would like to meet if she could meet anyone in the world, Mary quickly responded, “My mother, because I never got to know my mother”. Mary’s mother, Secundina, died in Vermejo, NM in 1918 as a result of the influenza when Mary was only 6 years old. Mary was baptized on August 25, 1912 in Tercio, Colorado and on October, 12, 1927 was confirmed in Tercio. At the age of thirteen, because of the untimely death of Mary’s step-mother in 1925, Mary’s formal education ended so that she could assume the role of mother to her 11 month old half-brother, and 3 year old half-sister —a responsibility she held for several years. During the summer of her 16th year, to help with family finances, she worked in what Mary referred to as the “Big House” at the Vermejo Park Ranch in Vermejo, New Mexico. On March 5, 1935 Mary married Jose De Gracia (JD) Gonzales in the Las Animas County Court House in Trinidad. Together they owned and operated the West Side Inn in Valdez, Colo. for 30 years. During her prime, Mary loved to sew, crochet, fish, dance, and gamble. She, visited Italy, Spain, Florida, California, Washington, Texas and New Mexico. She served as a volunteer at the Colorado Welcome Center, was an active member of the St. Ignatius and Holy Trinity Churches, the Kennedy and Sayre Senior Centers, La Casa De Confediacion, and the Guadalupe Society. A registered voter in Las Animas County since 1948, Mary often served as an election judge during both primary and general elections in Segundo and Trinidad. Left to cherish her memory are Mary’s children: Ernie (Patti) Gonzales, Bonnie Shannon, Margaret (Robert) Apodaca and Joe (Rose) Gonzales. Mary also leaves behind her son-in-law Oney Chavez and her beloved grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. Along with her parents and siblings, Mary is preceded in death by her husband JD; her daughter Rose Chavez; son, Alberto Gonzales and her half-brother Ben Torres and her beloved Albert Torres.

Gonzales, Secundino
Secundino Gonzales – Walsenburg World – February 14, 1918 – Double Tragedy – Secundino Gonzales, T. E. Harr Dead As Result of Gun Play – As a result of a bootleg whiskey drunk last Monday night, February 11, Secundino Gonzales, the printer at the Independent office, and T. E. Harr, who was figured in bootlegging operations before this, are both dead. It appears that a bunch of men were drinking bootleg whiskey at the Harr residence, which is the old Tom Sproul place on upper Seventh Street just this side of Walsen mine. A quarrel ensued and Harr pulled a gun. It was taken away from him and he went out of the room but returned with a .30 – .30 Winchester. In the melee or purposely, Gonzales was shot in the right arm with the Winchester, the bullet entering the arm lengthways shattering the entire length of the bone. Gonzales drew his gun with his left hand and shot Harr in the heart killing him instantly. Gonzales was taken to the hospital at Pueblo. He got to the city but died while being taken in the ambulance from the depot to the hospital. Gonzales is known as a gun man, and a short time previous to this shot a town officer in the leg. He was out on bond for this assault. He was accustomed to display his big canon revolver at all times and was a most pernicious troublemaker when he had had his after-work drink of whiskey. Yet he was permitted to carry this gun by our democratic sheriff, because he worked at the Independent office and because he told the Sheriff that his life had been threatened. There are legal remedies which may be taken if a man’s life is threatened. Protests had been lodged by Justice of the Peace Mazzone and other officials against this man being allowed to carry a gun, but the sheriff turned a deaf ear to the warnings of our citizens and officials.

Good, Archie
Archie Good – Walsenburg World – November 25, 1892 – Joy and sorrow go hand-in-hand in this world. While the hearts of Mr. and Mrs. Good were joyful over the advent of a little daughter, little Archie, the six-year-old son of Mr. Good was sick at H. D. Gillespie’s at North Veta. Beside an injured foot, that refused to heal, he had a severely sore throat, but tender nursing so improved his condition that he was thought to be out of danger a week ago. Later there came a change for the worse and at 1 o’clock, Tuesday morning the light of life when out. Lovely he looked in his last sleep, but there was no response to the call, no return of the tender embrace. Archie was a remarkably intelligent and manly lad, and one whose future, had he lived, health grand things in store. But a wise providence planned differently and he was called to join the waiting mother and her other darling in the brighter world above. Sad, sad to the aching hearts here, bright to those reunited across the tide.

Mr. Gordon was born at Ballybay in the County of Monnighan, Ireland, in 1839, and was married at the age of 27 to Miss Catharine Anderson of Rutherglen, Scotland, on April 6, 1866. Mr. and Mrs. Gordon came to this country from Ireland in the spring of 1870, and Mr. Gordon went to work in the coal fields of Pennsylvania, he being a practical miner. They remained there about a year then returned to the old country, where they remained but a short time before returning to Pennsylvania. About 32 years ago Mr. Gordon came to this place and opened up the Walsen mines for Governor Hunt, who then had a lease on the land now comprising the Walsen and Robinson mines. There was no railroad here at that time and all the coal was hauled to Cucharas for shipment. Mr. Gordon also took the first coal out of the Pictou mine. Mr. Gordon was at one time Justice of the Peace and for a number of years was Street Commissioner and Marshal of the town of Walsenburg. Mr. Gordon has been gradually failing in health for many years, the last illness lasting practically for the entire past year. He had been with his son, John Gordon of Gallup, New Mexico, since July 24 in the hope that a change would do him good, and he returned to Walsenburg just four weeks before his death. Seven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Gordon, of whom four are living: John Gordon of Gallup, New Mexico, who reached here yesterday morning; Mrs. Max Klein of Denver, Colorado, and Henry Gordon, Jr., and Mrs. James Firm of Walsenburg. Funeral services will be conducted at the house this afternoon at 3 o’clock, and at the Masonic Cemetery under the auspices of the Knights of Pythias Lodge, of which order he was a charter member.

Gore, Henry W.
Henry W. Gore – Walsenburg World – October 7, 1909 – Last Thursday afternoon a lively reception was given Deputy Sheriff’s John Wright and Henry Humiston, about a mile above Walsen Camp. A colored man known as Henry W. Gore, had been coming into the Robinson Camp in the evening carrying a Winchester and terrorizing the inhabitants of Walsen and Robinson Camps. Another colored man reported that Gore was living in a cave or hole in the ground which he had excavated at the head of a washout or small arroya. It was also believed that he was the man who had burglarized the blacksmith shop at Dick Brothers Mine north of town. Humiston and Wright were sent up to search the dugout and arrest the man. Arrived at the place, Wright went above the washout and removing a stone from a hole which served as an outlet for smoke called for the man to come out. He was answered by a shot which narrowly missed Wright’s head. Meanwhile, Humiston was following the man’s tracks up the arroya. He was met at the dugout by the business end of a Winchester. He called to the man to drop the gun and come out, but was answered by two shots which threw dirt all over him. In the battle which ensued the Negro was killed. In the dugout which was a room about 14 x 14 was found a blast furnace, forge, crucibles and dies for counterfeiting as well as the things stolen from the Dick Brothers blacksmith shop. Whether Gore was pure desperado or slightly demented will never be known. He was not known by any of the colored people of this section.

Green, Henry
Henry Green – Walsenburg World – September 29, 1910 – Henry Green, a large colored man, was shot with a .45-caliber pistol at the Eble Brothers grading camp near Huerfano Station, Saturday afternoon about 1 o’clock. The shot was fired by another colored man of the name of Frazier. Grace Lockhart, Susie Tone and Bessie Lewis are three colored women who are living at the camp, cooking and washing for the men. The shooting took place in the tent of Susie Tone. The three women were there fooling or “playing” as they called it was Frazier and Green. The Tone woman had a .45-caliber revolver, Frazier, in the play took this from Tone. Henry Green had gone out but came back into the tent and said to Frazier, “You better go to work and quit playing with these women. The teams are up there on the dump.” Frazier replied that he didn’t care anything about the teams. Green had a gun in his hand and fired it into the ground. Frazier had the gun he had taken from the woman in his hand, according to the three women and raised it and fired. The shot entered Green’s body on the right side, penetrated the body and lodged against a water bucket in another tent. Green said “Look out, Sam, you have shot me.” Frazier then threw both guns on the bed and went out to work. A doctor was summoned for Green and he was brought to Walsenburg where he died Sunday morning. A coroner’s jury sat upon the body of Green Monday morning. The verdict was non-committal as to whether the killing by Frazier was felonious or not. The three women testified that when Green shot into the ground, Frazier was holding the gun in his hand by his side and raised it up and fired at Green. Frazier says that in the “horse play” that was being indulged in he had the gun held over his head and it was discharged accidentally as he brought it down; that he had no thought of Green trying to shoot him; and that he had no thought of shooting Green. There had been no quarrel or trouble of any kind between him and Green, so he says. Frazier is at present being held at the county jail. Walsenburg World – October 13, 1910 – District Court – A Number of Cases Reach Final Disposition – A Number Sent to the Pen – Defendants Mostly Enter Pleas of Guilty, Which Is a Saving of Expense to the County – The October term of the District Court made final disposition of a number of criminal cases and made quite a decrease in the population of the county jail. Sam Fraser, the colored man who shot and killed Henry Green, another colored man, at a railroad grading camp near Huerfano Station was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and was given a sentence of six months in the county jail.

Grey, Thomas
Thomas Grey – Walsenburg World – May 28, 1908 – Suicide – Thomas Grey of the firm of Grey & Miskel, retail liquor dealers, on W. 7th St., below the C & S tracks, committed suicide Monday morning in a small room in the rear of the saloon. No particular reason for the act can be ascertained. Mr. Miskel said that Mr. Grey seemed in his usual spirits, was apparently well and only complained occasionally of slight pains from neuralgia. He had been talking with a group of men in the saloon just before he ended his life. He got up from the chair where he was sitting and said he guessed he would go and lie down for a little while. He had scarcely left the room when the occupants of the saloon heard a shot. Rushing to the rear room they found the door locked. They broke in and found Grey on the bed, the top of his head literally blown off and portions of his brain scattered over the walls and ceiling. A four-ounce bottle, that had contained carbolic acid, lay on a trunk and his lip showed that he had taken the acid and then shot himself. He used a Colt .44 revolver, the bullet entering just above the eye and blowing the top of the head off. Mr. Grey had just returned from a ranch that he owns and his acquaintances have since recalled that he did not appear to be the same man since his return that he was before. Mr. Grey was 58 years old and was a native of England, where his mother still lives. He had no relatives in this country. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Baptist Church and the body interred in the Masonic Cemetery.

Griego, Pete
Pete Griego – Walsenburg World – March 15, 1907 – District Court – It took a jury in the District Court yesterday afternoon less than one hour to return a verdict finding Santiago Tafoya guilty of murder in the first degree. Tafoya was on trial for shooting Pedro Griego at St. Thomas, without provocation about two weeks ago. Tafoya testified that he shot in self-defense, but five eyewitnesses to the killing of Diego testified to the contrary for the state. Tafoya was sentenced to death in the week by Judge Henry Hunter. Walsenburg World – July 9, 1907 – Sentenced to Death – Santiago Tafoya, sentenced to be hanged sometime during the week ending July 7 for the murder of Pete Griego, March 1 of this year, has had his sentence commuted to life imprisonment. Executive clemency was obtained through the influence of a number of Trinidad’s settlers including Major Daniel L. Taylor and others, who interested themselves in the case because of Tafoya’s father who was sheriff of Las Animas County from 1868 two 1873, and who saved a party of Americans from death at the hands of an angry Mexican mob on the night of January 4, 1868. Santiago Tafoya shot and killed Pete Griego on the night of March 1 at Sopris, for alleged intimacy with the former’s wife. At the trial he pleaded self-defense, saying that they had become involved in a hand to hand struggle, and that he fired to preserve his life. He was found guilty March 13 and later sentenced by District Judge Henry Hunter to be hanged. This was Judge Hunter’s first death sentence.

Katherine will always be remembered as a nice person, a good friend an athlete and an artist. A motto for her life: “To those who are given much, much is expected.” In keeping with this motto, she became a weekly visitor to the elderly at the Trinidad Nursing Home and worked in the hospital gift shop. When friends were going through hard times, Katherine was always present with a coffee pot and words of support accompanied by her spirit of caring and fun. Katherine enjoyed competition. As an eighteen year old tennis player in Wichita, Kansas, she won a trophy in that city’s tournament. In Trinidad, she became an excellent bridge player. She won many Duplicate titles and other bridge tournaments at the Trinidad Country Club. However, her competitive spirit of fun was most apparent when it came to a game of golf. Countless summer mornings, as early as 5:30 AM, Katherine was on the course. She always made it home in time to prepare the family breakfast. Her persistent play paid off. She won the Trinidad Ladies Golf Championship numerous times. Katherine’s final trophy came at the age seventy when she repeated once again as the Ladies Golf Champion. Although golf was her favorite sport, she was also fancy ice-skater. On cold winters, Katherine was known for flooding the iced-over Trinidad Central Park Pond to create a smooth skating arena where she spent time showing others how to move their blades backwards or land a jump. With all of her social activities, she always had time for her children and work. In the 1950’s, was a Cub Scout and Blue Bird leader. In addition, Katherine ran a small sandwich business from her home. Later, she worked as a med-tech at Mount San Rafael Hospital, as a teller at the Trinidad National Bank, and as a salesclerk at Pixie. While golf and social activity was her joy, art was her passion. She was a prolific artist with an eye for beauty. In Trinidad, she studied art under the guidance of Arthur Roy Mitchell. Her numerous landscapes of the Stone wall, Fisher’s Peak and local surroundings, as well as the Trinidad Country Club’s painted windows, and her pieces of refinished furniture survive today as a testimony to her talent. A Mass for Katherine and a Fall Memorial Service to honor her zest for life and service to others will be held in September. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, you may send donations to the Trinidad Ladies Golf Club % of Mrs. Robert Lamden.

Griffith, Edwin F.
Edwin F. Griffith - Ruidoso News - November 8, 2007 - Edwin F. Griffith, 85, joined the Lord and saints Nov. 7 in Alamogordo. Fr. Ed, as he was affectionately known, was a Pearl Harbor survivor having been on the first ship bombed that fateful Sunday in 1941, the USS California. He was only 17 at the time and lived through many harrowing experiences throughout the war. He believed the Good Lord had saved his life because He had a mission for him to fulfill on earth. As a result, Fr. Ed went into the priesthood and devoted his entire life to serving the Lord and his parishioners. Fr. Ed was born in Trinidad, Colorado to Anna Diemer and Edwin Fred Griffith. He was predeceased by a sister, Julia Harnish. His surviving sister, Wilma Garlutzo lives in Denver, Colo. Fr. Ed is survived by a niece, Darlene Garlutzo and her husband, Steve Barnhill of Aurora, Colo.; a nephew Larry Garlutzo and his wife Greta of Centennial, Colo.; a nephew Arnie Alishio and his wife Cheryl of Golden, Colo.; and a nephew, Harvey Harnish and his wife Debbie of Trinidad, Colo. In addition, he is survived by 13 great nieces and nephews, and his devoted caregiver, Ann Berry. In 1940 Fr. Ed enlisted in the Navy during World War II and participated at Pearl Harbor, in the Coral Sea and Midway Sea battles, and later in the landings at Tarawa. When he was discharged in 1946 he returned to his native Colorado and became active in church work. He joined the Holy Name Society, St. Vincent de Paul Societies and the Knights of Columbus, but always felt he was doing so little for the Lord. While working for Continental Airlines, he made a stop in El Paso and went to St. Patrick's Cathedral. He felt he was too old to become a priest but met a priest who encouraged him to enter the priesthood. He was the oldest member of his class. He entered St. Thomas Seminary in Denver, Colo., for studies in philosophy in 1958. He was ordained in El Paso on May 20, 1964. His parishes included St. Catherine's Parish in Pecos, Texas, and then he joined the Diocese of Las Cruces. He served as pastor of Holy Cross Parish, Immaculate Conception Church, St. John the Apostle, St. Joseph's and San Isidro. In addition, he served at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Truth or Consequences and Santa Rita Church in Carrizozo. His latter years he spent as an active parishioner at St. Jude Mission Parish in Alamogordo where he proudly gave his ordination chalice to Fr. Wayne Herpin, S.J., Pastor. He developed a close relationship with Fr. Wayne until his death. Until his death, he loved his Lord, his family, the mountains, the birds and children. He loved to smoke his pipe and talk about the "days gone bye." His sweet smile and witty humor will be sorely missed by those that loved and respected him. Visitation will be held at 5 p.m. at St. Jude Mission Parish on Sunday, November 11. The Vigil Wake will begin at 7 p.m. followed by the recitation of the Rosary led by the Rosary Society. The Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated by Bishop Ricardo Ramirez, C.S.B. at 9 a.m. at St. Jude Mission Parish on Monday, Nov. 12 Internment will follow at Immaculate Conception Cemetery with full military honors. A luncheon will follow in the Parish Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Renovation and Maintenance Fund at St. Jude Mission Parish would be greatly appreciated. Father Ed was always concerned about St. Jude Mission Parish and it was his wish that it be restored to its original beauty. Funeral arrangements under the direction of the Alamogordo Funeral Home.

Grigioni, Pietro
Pietro Grigioni – Walsenburg World – July 15, 1904 – A Fall of Rock – Word was received here yesterday that a miner had been killed at Santa Clara. An investigation was immediately held by the coroner at the district attorney. It developed that Pietro Grigioni, a young Italian miner about 19 years of age, after a blast in the room where he was getting out coal noticed what he thought was a loose rock in the roof. He attempted to pull this down with his pick standing directly under it. The result was that it crushed out his life instantly. His partner testified that there were props in the room and that when he spoke to the deceased about the loose rock he was told to go on loading coal that the deceased would tend to the rock. He attended to it in the manner mentioned. The accident happened about 1 o’clock Wednesday afternoon. The deceased was a single man with no relatives in this country but with a father and mother in the old country. The coroner’s jury brought in a verdict of death by accident through carelessness. The body was brought here and interment made in the Catholic Cemetery yesterday.

Margie would never say "goodbye" to anyone, and we are not saying it now. See you soon, Gram and we love you more and more! She fought the good fight, she finished the race, she kept the faith. 2 Timothy, Chapter 4. Lord, help us be even a portion of how good she was.
