Henry Jackson – Walsenburg World – July 1, 1909 – A murder or at least manslaughter occurred at the Strong Mine last Saturday night or Sunday morning. A colored man by the name of Henry Jackson, who has been at the camp only about three weeks went to a house occupied by two women, Ada Moore and Sally Story, and wanted them to walk out with him. They refused and he created a disturbance there, but finally left. Later, toward Sunday morning, he came back and broke into the house and chased Ada Moore out of the house. She ran to the house of Mr. Wilson who came out and drove Jackson away. At this point she testifies that she went for the officers. Sally Story at this time, according to her testimony was hiding under the bed and did not come out until she heard the officers at the door. In the meantime Judge London, the lesser of the house, came upon the scene and was seen to go around to the back of the house. He entered at the back door; voices were heard; the sound of a blow; and a heavy fall. London then came over to the Wilson house and asked him to come over and see “what that nigger has done to my house. I hit him,” he said “and knocked him down. I guess he is dead.” Ada Moore at the coroner’s inquest testified that she had hit Jackson with a baseball bat. Later at the preliminary hearing she repudiated the statement and told the story of her movements as told above. London now denies that he came up to the house until after the man was struck.

James, J. P.
J. P. James – Walsenburg World – March 5, 1903 – Killed in Mine – J. P. James, 35 years of age, a coal miner, was killed by a cave-in Saturday at the Black Diamond Mine near Rugby. He leaves a widow and three children in the East.
John James – Walsenburg World - October 13, 1898 - Two Miners Killed By a Fall of Rock While at Their Work - Monday was a day of sadness and sorrow. Two men were ushered into the other world without warning and the cold earth received their lifeless bodies. David Owens was instantly killed by a fall of rock in the Pictou mine. He had been drawing a pillar and had just about finished his work when the removal of the coal below caused a slip in the rock above and without a note of warning the mass was upon him breaking his neck and crushing the life out of him. The deceased was a native of Wales, having come here some 14 years ago leaving a wife and family there. He had worked at the Pictou mine about twelve years when the accident occurred that caused his death. John Williams or John James met his death at the Sunshine the same morning in almost the same way. A slip or malformation in the rock invisible from below, opened and when the support below was removed, the rock came down with a forward and back movement crushing the life out of a faithful and unsuspecting miner. John James was left an orphan at an early age and was adopted by a family of the name of Wilson then residing in Ohio. Fourteen years ago John left there and came as far west as Hiteman, Iowa, where he worked for three years in the coal banks. He went from there to Flagler, Iowa, and from there came to this state. An inquest was held in both cases and after hearing all the testimony the jury found that each party had come to his death by falling rock while at work; that the accident was unavoidable and that the company should be exonerated. Walsenburg World – December 1, 1898 – Dr. C. M. McGuite has been appointed administrator of the estate of John Wilson. It will be remembered that John Wilson was killed by a fall of rock in the Pictou Mine about six weeks ago.

She is survived by her sister, Doris (Dick) Fiala; her daughter, Nancy (Geoff) Roberts; and sons, Steve (Emma) Janke, Paul (Antoinette) Janke and Tim Janke; five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. Barbara graduated from the Wesley Memorial Hospital School of Nursing (Chicago, Ill.) in 1954. She was married the same year and started raising a family a year later. Her family moved to Mexico, Mo., and in 1961, she started working at Audrain Medical Center as a registered nurse. She then was the family planning coordinator at the Audrain County Health Unit. She enjoyed working with troubled teens and having weekly talk sessions with them. She lost her husband (age 40) in 1971 after his 15-year battle with cancer. She then had the courage to raise her four children alone, their ages ranging from 7 to 16. She had great support from friends and relatives. One of her proudest achievements was receiving her B.A. degree (psychology) in 1977. For two years, she had to drive 80 miles roundtrip to attend class in Columbia, Mo., while working the night shift at the Mexico hospital. After graduating, she became the head pediatric nurse. In 1984, she moved to Pueblo, Colo., and started the family planning clinic at the Pueblo City-County Health Department. She worked tirelessly to educate teens and help reduce the teen pregnancy rate in Pueblo. Never afraid of change, at age 55 she attended UCLA for a six-month nurse practitioner program and then returned to Pueblo, where she was an OB/GYN nurse practitioner until her retirement in 2003. In 2010, she moved to Kalispell, Mont., to be closer to family due to health reasons. In her lifetime, she enjoyed teaching ceramics, stained glass, coaching girls’ softball, painting, scrapbooking, writing stories about family vacations, volunteer work, working with the Girl, Boy and Cub Scouts, camping, watching her kids’ sporting events, the Red Hat Society, making cookies, dancing and hosting parties. She had many pets in her lifetime and loved each one dearly. At the nursing home, she had numerous friends and loved to play bingo; “Bingo Bongo!” was her bingo call. She was a true nurse in all facets of her life; always putting others’ needs before hers. She always had a smile on her face and was a joy to be around. She will truly be missed by all. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Dec. 5, 2015, at Adrian-Comer Garden Chapel in Pueblo. Donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.

Jon Jaquez - Pueblo Chieftain - November 25, 2014 - An armed man was fatally shot Tuesday night in a shooting involving law enforcement on Pueblo’s East Side as personnel from both the Pueblo Police Department and the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office were trying to contact a person of interest in an assault case. The shooting occurred on the side of a Loaf ‘N Jug store near the air pumps at the intersection of East Fourth Street and Troy Avenue. Earlier in the day, the police department was investigating a serious assault that had left an unidentified 23-year-old man in serious condition at a local hospital. Detectives and crime scene investigators spent Tuesday afternoon processing a possible crime scene on the 1000 block of Cypress Street. At around 6:30 p.m. members of the police department and the sheriff’s office were in the area of the Loaf ‘N Jug attempting to contact a person of interest in that assault case. Officers with the police department and deputies with the sheriff’s office encountered an armed man on the side of the Loaf ‘N Jug store and he was shot. Police wouldn’t say if the man was a suspect or a person of interest in the assault case. Medical personnel were sent to the scene but the man died from his wounds. It was unclear Tuesday night how many shots authorities fired at the man or if it was personnel from the police department or sheriff’s office who fired, or both, according to Sgt. Eric Gonzales, a public information officer with the police department. It is also unclear if the victim had his weapon pointed at authorities. The name of the man who was shot has not been released. Patrick Stiffler works on the East Side near the Loaf ‘N Jug where the incident took place and said he heard seven to eight shots fired. “Hearing all of the gunshots going off, it was different and I’ve never experienced that before in my life,” he said. “We see a lot of things going on over here but this is the first time I’ve seen something like this. It’s the worst thing I’ve seen over here and hopefully it never happens again. I don’t know what to think about it right now.” Pueblo’s 10th Judicial District Critical Incident Team was activated and called to the scene and an investigation is ongoing. The team is called out to investigate each time there is a shooting involving law enforcement. The shooting comes on the heels of a grand jury deciding Monday not to indict an officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Mo., as well as the shooting of a Rocky Ford resident by a police department officer Oct. 12, who now faces second-degree murder charges. Of the situation, Gonzales said, “The timing couldn’t be worse but police work has to go on day in and day out.” Pueblo Chieftain - November 27, 2014 - The victim of a fatal shooting involving law enforcement Tuesday night on Pueblo’s East Side was identified Wednesday morning. Jon Jaquez, 26, of Pueblo, was shot multiple times in the torso area, according to Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer. An autopsy is pending. It remained unclear Wednesday whether an officer or officers with the Pueblo Police Department or a deputy or deputies with the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office fired the shots, as both agencies were at the scene. The shooting occurred near some air pumps on the side of a Loaf ‘N Jug store at the intersection of East Fourth Street and Troy Avenue around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. Earlier in the day, the police department was investigating a serious assault that left a 23-year-old man, identified as Gilbert Sprague, in critical condition and on life support at a local hospital. Sprague was found unresponsive Tuesday morning at his home on the 1000 block of Cypress Street and was transported to a local hospital where his condition worsened. The alleged assault took place Monday night. About 6:30 p.m., members of the police department and sheriff’s office were in the area of the Loaf ‘N Jug attempting to contact Jaquez, who was identified as a person of interest in that assault case. When authorities arrived, they were able to identify Jaquez, who was in control of a white Honda. It was determined that the Honda was reported stolen earlier in the day. Officers surrounded the car and gave numerous commands for Jaquez to exit the vehicle. Jaquez reportedly accelerated forward, striking two officers in the process, then put his car in reverse and crashed into a police vehicle. Law enforcement officials fired their weapons during the incident and struck Jaquez. Medical personnel responded and Jaquez died from his wounds at the scene. Witnesses reported hearing seven to eight shots but that wasn’t confirmed by police. Police said Jaquez has had extensive law enforcement contact and had an active felony warrant for his arrest. Two other individuals were in the vehicle at the time of the shooting and were not injured, according to police. The passenger’s identities have not been released. It is unknown if the passengers are connected to the earlier assault on Cypress or if there is any established relationship to Jaquez. Law enforcement authorities involved in the incident have been placed on administrative leave. Their identities are not being released at this time. Pueblo’s 10 Judicial District Critical Incident Team is investigating the incident in coordination with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the investigation is ongoing. Pueblo Chieftain - November 29, 2014 - Law enforcement officials involved in the deadly shooting of a 26-year-old man will be interviewed early next week about the incident and their names will not be released until those interviews are completed, according to Sgt. Eric Gonzales with the Pueblo Police Department. Jon Jaquez was shot multiple times Tuesday night around 6:30 p.m. on the side of a Loaf ‘N Jug store at the intersection of East Fourth Street and Troy Avenue. It remains unclear whether an officer or officers with the police department or a deputy or deputies with the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office fired the shots, as both agencies were at the scene. Jaquez reportedly struck two officers while driving a white Honda and crashed into a police vehicle as he was backing up after law enforcement had surrounded his vehicle and gave numerous commands for him to exit the car. Pueblo Chieftain - December 1, 2014 - The names of the law enforcement officers involved in the fatal shooting of a 26-year-old Pueblo man on Nov. 25 have been released. Pueblo police officer (name deleted) and Pueblo County sheriff’s Detective (name deleted), shot Jon Jaquez multiple times after a confrontation occurred when police attempted to contact him in regard to an assault earlier in the day. Police were investigating a serious assault that left 23-year-old Gilbert Sprague in critical condition. Sprague was on life support Monday at a local hospital. Members of the police and sheriff’s departments were in the area of the Loaf ‘N Jug at the intersection of East Fourth Street and Troy Avenue about 6:30 p.m. when they attempted to contact Jaquez, who was identified as a person of interest in the assault. Jaquez was in a stolen Honda when officers surrounded the vehicle and gave numerous commands for him to get out of the vehicle. Instead, Jaquez accelerated forward, striking two officers, then put the vehicle in reverse, crashing into a police vehicle. Officers fired their weapons during the incident striking Jaquez, who died at the scene. The Pueblo police officer is a 15-year police veteran and the Pueblo County Sheriff’s detective is a 3 ½ year veteran of the sheriff’s department. Both officers are on administrative leave. The 10th Judicial District Critical Incident Team continues to investigate the episode.

Jerome, J. L.
J. L. Jerome – Walsenburg World – November 24, 1903 – Died at Summer Home – J. L. Jerome, the third of the Big Four, founders of the CF&I Company to succumb to death’s call within the past six months, died at his home at Buffalo Park sometime Saturday night. The immediate cause of his death was an overdose of a sleeping powder which he had been accustomed to take for his insomnia. It was his custom to take a horseback ride in the morning and when he did not come out his groom entered the house and found him dead. The coroner pronounced that there was no evidence of intent to commit suicide. It is thought that the long struggle for the control of the CF&I Company was a direct cause of his worries and hence an indirect cause of his death.

Mary Johnson – Walsenburg World – September 11, 1903 – A Drunken Quarrel – Too much liquid enthusiasm resulted in a shooting that will probably prove fatal at Maitland Wednesday afternoon.

Sheriff Farr jumped on a horse and reached Maitland before Jackson left camp. Undersheriff MacQuarrie followed immediately in the buggy making a record trip to that point. Jackson was brought over and lodged in jail. The woman was shot through the abdomen with a .41 caliber revolver, and will doubtless die.

Mike Johnson – 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.

Pete Johnson – Walsenburg World – January 23, 1902 – Explosion at Pictou – An explosion occurred in the Pictou mine Monday morning, killing Frank Marquis, J. H. Brewer and Pete Johnson, (colored) and injuring Milton Phipps, Andrew Simons and Dominick Peano. J. H. Brewer, who was suffocated by the fire damp leaves a wife and eight children. Frank Marquis, who is about 24 years of age, was apparently suffocated but had some bad bruises on him. Milton Phipps, brother of Superintendent Phipps, was badly bruised about the head, hands and upper part of the body. Andrew Simons, a Slavonian, was badly burned and otherwise hurt. His forearm was broken and a piece of wood driven into his neck back of and under the left ear to the depth of one inch and a half. Phipps and Simons were sent to the C. F. & I. Hospital at Pueblo on Tuesday morning. Dr. Baird was soon on the ground and gave such relief he could to the living. Coroner Ahlquist and the coroner’s jury, after ascertaining all the facts, brought in a verdict that the accident had been unavoidable. No one is able to account for the explosion, nor is it known whether it was gas or powder. In the former history of the mine, but little, if any gas has ever been found in the entry, where the accident occurred. The place had been inspected as usual by the fire boss, whose duty it is to go through all parts of the mine every morning before the men go to work, for the purpose of detecting the presence of gas, and that he reported a little pocket of gas in one of the old abandoned rooms, but it was not sufficient to cause any alarm whatever. The men had been to work about an hour when the explosion was heard. There is no one able to give any explanation as to the cause and it will probably remain a mystery. The death of the three men was due to suffocation and the others were injured by suffocation and concussion. Brewer and Johnson had been in this part of the country for only a short time and very little is known about them. Frank Marquis is a young man who lived in this country for many years and leaves many relatives and friends to mourn his loss it is said the men who were injured will recover.

Richard Ellis Johnson - Pueblo Chieftain - September 24, 2017 - Richard Ellis Johnson passed away peacefully in the early hours of Sept. 15, 2017. Dick, as most people called him, was born May 18, 1931, in Oklahoma, but as an infant was raised in Calhan, Colo., and then Colorado Springs. He enlisted in the Army and was stationed in Japan. He is survived by two children in Colorado Springs, Kathy and Teddy; several grand and great-grandchildren. Dick moved to Pueblo and was employed by Athey Beaman Roofing for a short time. He is survived by his wife, Charleen Nutt, whom he married March 15, 1965. For a short time, he managed a Sinclair Service Station, where he built his own wrecker and offered 24-hour service. An opportunity to purchase land on Prairie Avenue, which then was in the county, prompted him to start his own auto repair business and also keep his horses on the property. Johnson's Auto Sales and Service was established and a few years later a paint and body shop was added. With a sense of adventure and love of animals the couple purchased acreage in the county, their home was built in 1980 and within a short time stray or unwanted animals arrived to join them. After selling his business, Dick did not retire and take it easy. Up at 5 a.m. and after the chores of ranching, he would then head for his shop on the premises and work restoring the vintage autos. Even when he needed the aid of a walker, he worked repairing damage on his Ford Ranger. A true Taurus, Richard faced every challenge with the ferocity of the Brahma bulls he rode as a young man. And, as a stock car racer, he had the determination to win the race. Fighting several health issues, he won a bout of serious cancer. But God finally called out saying, "Hey Cowboy, it's time to head for that cabin in the sky." Dick would always take note of a beautiful sunrise, a tiny bird perched somewhere, even the pronghorns that crossed our property. True, he was outspoken, rough and tough, but deep down, a very loyal, gentle, caring man. So many to thank for support: Elke and Robert Pugel, Jim Ruggieri, Charlie and Tony Gettler, Brandi Strah, Jenni Jolly, Jim and Jeanette Hardesty, the caregivers of Life Care Center and Sharmar. Richard will be laid to rest at a graveside ceremony under "Open Spaces" which a cowboy loves, at 2 p.m. on Sept. 26, 2017, at Roselawn Cemetery, officiated by Father Frank Davied. Please omit flowers. Just prayers for "Happy Trails" to you, Dick, until we meet again.

Johnston, David G.
David G. Johnston - Huerfano World Journal - August 31, 2017 - David G. Johnston, known as Dave by most, passed away at age 66 on August 23, 2017 in Pueblo. Dave lived in and around the Colorado mountains most of his life. He spent most of his young life in Rye, CO. As a teen there, he founded the Greenhorn Valley Newspaper and spent most of his young years as a reporter, photographer, editor, and delivery boy. Stretching his roots a bit, Dave worked in Wyoming as a State Auditor and then started an accounting firm in Casper. Colorado called him back after marriage and children, so he and his wife (Evelyn) moved the accounting practice to Pueblo. For many years, Dave could be found working late into the evenings at Johnston Accounting and Tax Service. Wanderlust found him later in life, and he and Evelyn moved to Milliken, CO, as they chased a long-held dream of owning a hardware store. They opened Milliken Quality Hardware and enjoyed small town life for several years. His true love was in the numbers though and he returned to a desk job for a time in Walsenburg, CO, taking on the role of Finance Director and later, City Administrator. Dave will be remembered for his kindness, compassion, his ‘can-do’ attitude, and his distinctive laugh. He is survived by his wife Evelyn, children Michelle Pellman, Shawn (Sarah) Johnston, Melanie (Adam) Smith, brother Lloyd (Cindy) Johnston, sister Audra (Todd) Johnston, grandchildren Breanna, Camry, Nikki, Mason, Sabel, David, Emily, Addison, and Kennedy, great granddaughter Ellie, and his first wife Claudia Baxter.

When contacted Friday, police did not provide the name of the man officers apprehended near the scene of the shooting. The shooting happened just before 7 p.m. in an alley on the 2300 block of Lake Avenue. Police said some sort of disturbance occurred between the two men prior to shots being fired. When officers arrived on scene, the body of an adult man was discovered in an alley on the block next to a defunct antique store. Police were able to take the suspect into custody shortly after the shooting took place. Ages for the two men have not been provided, but police said Thursday that they are both "older" adult males.

However, the department's arrest records show that 62-year-old Jack Brian Pembelton was booked into the Pueblo County jail Thursday evening on charges of first-degree murder. Pembelton was carrying a handgun at the time of his arrest. Police responded to a report of gunfire on the 2300 block of Lake Avenue just before 7 p.m. Thursday and, upon arrival, found Jones' body in an alley next to a defunct antique store, having apparently succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds.

About New Year’s the little boy of five in playing around the kitchen, fell backwards into a tub of boiling water.

It is a sad blow to them to lose their darling son, and the home will long be lonely and the hearts desolate, though they joy to know that to him pain and grief are forever at an end.

He died at midnight last night. An inquest will be held by the coroner of Fremont county at Canon City. Canon City’s sheriff at once reported the matter to the sheriff’s office in this city, tho with no details as to the injuries; it was stated however, that the injured man had in his pockets a card indicating his name, a receipt signed by Lucilo Harris, 1236 Rio Grande avenue; a registration card signed by Frank Steck, Goodpasture, and some papers signed by volunteer workers. Sheriff Thomas took up the investigation at once and dug up the information concerning the address of the injured young man, and other particulars including the extent of his injuries. Jones, the sheriff ascertained, has been employed at the coke ovens of the Minnequa steel works; he left Pueblo for a trip west in company with Claude Hines, about a week ago. His mother, Mrs. Ellen Jones, resides near Muskogee, Okla., her address being R.F.D. No 1, Box 45. Just how the accident occurred is a matter only of conjecture, tho is seems clear that he was run over by some train that passed some time before. Whether he was attempting to board a train, or was knocked off, or whether he was run down while walking on the track, will perhaps never be known.

Jones, Virginia Jo
Virginia Jo Jones - Huerfano World Journal - November 2, 2017 - Virginia Jo Jones was a bright and beautiful spirit, a loyal friend, and a loving mother who relished in the happiness and successes of her children, family, and friends. Jo was smart, and ahead of her time in many ways. She graduated from high school two years early after having skipped both the second and the fourth grade. At the age of 16 she began college at North Texas State College, majoring in music and was nominated for Yucca Queen that first year. The love of music and singing was a constant throughout her entire life, and we would find her softly singing from time to time right up until her passing. She had been singing a long time. In middle school and throughout high school she would take public transportation by herself into downtown Dallas for voice lessons with money for the bus and enough left over for lunch at the Woolworth’s lunch counter. If she had to change buses, she would just ask the bus drivers where to go. It was a kinder, gentler time. With the loving guidance of Arthur Ewalt, her father and a single parent in the 1930’s, Jo took easily to running her own show at an early age. The courage and independence she gained during her early years served her well, as she experienced many physical challenges later in her life including blindness. Her favorite poem was Invictus by William Ernest Henley. She quoted the last two lines many times echoing her belief…”I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.” Jo was well spoken, and could write beautifully. Throughout her working career she was a great asset to her employers and later to the family business, Zeke’s Inc. in Raton, New Mexico. She instilled a love of music, art, literature, foreign languages, and a continuance of lifelong learning in her children for which they are ever grateful. Born in Dallas, Texas to Stella Sanderson and Arthur Ewalt on October 30, 1929, Jo transitioned to be with our Creator on October 4, 2017. She was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, Roy Cecil Jones. She is survived by a daughter, Janis Jones Loverin (Richard) of Ruidoso, NM, and a son, Jerry Lyle Jones (Debbi) of Rio Rancho, NM. She is also survived by four grandchildren, Brie Sherwin (Rob) of Lubbock, TX, Heather Simpson (Sean) of Ruidoso, NM, Jessica Jones of Rio Rancho, NM, and Matthew Jones Fernandez of El Paso, TX. Her great grandchildren are Mia Simpson, daughter of Heather and Sean Simpson, and Aubrey Jones, daughter of Jessica Jones. Jo was fun-loving and a loyal friend. She was a good listener in a time when they are scarce. She was and is loved greatly, and by many.

Julia Ann Joslyn – Walsenburg World – April 28, 1910 – Obituary – Mrs. Julia Ann Joslyn, mother of Mrs. D. C. Cagwin of this city, died Saturday, April 22, 1910, in New York City at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Melora J. Carter. Mrs. Cagwin and Mrs. Clarke are the only surviving members of the family, as the father died 20 years ago, and the only other daughter 10 years ago. Mrs. Joslyn was 80 years of age. The Joslyn family is a very old one. Its history reaches back even beyond the time of the Emperor Charlemagne, whose daughter married Count Joceline. One of the descendents of this union was Sir Gilbert Joceline, who accompanied William, Duke of Normandy, in his extradition for the conquest of England in 1066 and became the founder of the Joselyn family in England. He received from William I extensive territorial grants in the County of Lincoln. His son Gilbert devoted himself to a religious life and founded the order called the Gilbertines, and was canonized a saint by Pope Innocent III in 1202. The youngest son, Thomas, married Maude, granddaughter of Baron Sudely, by which marriage the family obtained that estate which has ever since remained in its possession. One of the descendents became Duke of Northumberland; another was a signer of the Magna Charta, others have been bishops, lord mayors, etc. Another of his descendents was Thomas Josseline, who was the founder of the family in America. He came over in the ship Increase in 1636 and landed in Hingham, Massachusetts, with his wife, one son, Nathaniel, and four daughters. Later an older son, Abraham, who had been left in school, joined the family, who removed to Lancaster, of which they were among the original proprietors and inhabitants. Nathaniel’s son Peter married Sarah Houte, who was killed by Indians July 8, 1692. To their son John was born Captain Abijah Joslyn in Leominster, Massachusetts, in 1745. Capt. Abijah was in the militia at New York, a member of Converse’s Regiment, and in Capt. Jonathan Woods Company. He died at Verona in 1811. He was the grandfather of Mrs. Cagwin and Mrs. Clarke.
