Anderson, Martin
Martin Anderson – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – February 10, 1919 – Around the City – From Friday's Daily – Telegram Clears Doubt on Anderson's Death – A telegram received yesterday morning by Alfred Pomeroy of 217 West Fifth street established the identity of “Martin Anderson of Leadville,” reported dead at Pueblo, as Martin Anderson, for twenty-five years a carpenter and mine employe in the Leadville district. A news item which was filed early yesterday morning by the Associated Press gave Anderson's name as “Henderson,” the error probably arising thru the haste to report his death before the wires closed at 2:30 a.m. Confusion all around resulted in getting news of the carpenter's death to Leadville. The undertakers at Pueblo evidently found Mr. Pomeroy's address and Mr. Anderson's membership card of the Eagles of Aerie No. 91 here, for the telegram sent here was addressed to John W. McMahon, who is secretary of the Eagles, and his address was given as 217 West Fifth street, which is Mr. Pomeroy's. Getting the message, Mr. McMahon turned it over to Mr. Pomeroy, who was a warm friend of the carpenter and a member with him in the local Brotherhood of Carpenters. Shortly before getting the message, Mr. Pomeroy met a friend who told him Anderson was dead. “Impossible,” said Mr. Pomeroy. “I saw him just before he left Leadville and he was feeling first rate.” Mr. Anderson was on his way to Hot Springs, Ark., where he hoped to improve in health after suffering for some time from what he told Charles Anderson, a neighbor tho not kin of the carpenter, was heart and kidney trouble. Mr. Pomeroy told him before he started east to be sure to carry with him a paper showing his (Mr. Pomeroy's) address so that he could be notified in case of the bearer's death, tho neither thot at the time that death was imminent. On reaching Pueblo, friends here believe, Mr. Anderson became too sick to continue his journey for which he had procured a thru ticket, and left the train to go to a hotel. He died at this hotel late in Wednesday night. Mr. Anderson's body will be brot here for burial, Mr. Pomeroy having sent instructions to the Pueblo undertakers last night to this effect.

She passed away March 26, 2005, in her home surrounded by her loving family. She was the first of four children born to James and Nell Cary. At the age of 2, her family moved to Fort Collins where she later graduated from Fort Collins High School, home of the Lambkins, in 1952. While in high school, Shirley met the love of her life, Lee Gale Andersen, a farm boy from eastern Colorado. They were united in marriage on Sept. 14, 1952. Lee and Shirley spent the first year of marriage living in Fort Collins while Lee attended Colorado A&M. They moved to the family farm the spring of 1953 to start their family. To this union, four children were born: Steven Jay, Cary Lee, Erin Elleen and James Iler. Shirley was raised a city gal until Lee won her heart and brought her out to the farm to raise their children. She was a little worried there wouldn't be very much socializing, but it didn't take long to embrace the beauty of the eastern plains. She said her favorite smell was the smell of the soil after a freshening rain shower. Because of her faith, she saw God's hands at work every day when she would look out and see the beauty in every tree, the sound of the meadowlarks and the waves of golden grain at harvest time. Shirley was a 4-H sewing leader for 15 years, a member of the United Methodist Church for 52 years and a dedicated board member of the Cooper-Clark Foundation. Shirley's passions in life included sewing, cooking for her family and harvest crew, and spending time with her family and friends. She always said her greatest accomplishments were her kids and grandkids. Later in life when her own children were raised, Shirley and Lee became mighty travelers with their good friends, Raymond and Marj Thompson. They would start each of their traveling expeditions by playing "On the Road Again" over the two-way radios and laughing together. They shared many fond memories of all their great adventures. Shirley is survived by her husband, Lee, of Genoa; children, Steve and wife, Susan, of Arriba, Cary and husband, Dennis Lohmeier, of Longmont, Erin and husband, Mike Burkett, of Colorado Springs, and James and wife, Mary, of Limon; 10 grandchildren, Tyler and Leigh Anna Andersen, Lindsey and Layne Lohmeier, Kyle, Kelsey and Kaitlyn Burkett, and Auston, Tayler and Riley Andersen.

Cary of Limon; brother, James Cary and wife, Kathy, of Longmont; sister, Viki Thiele and husband, Robert, of Farmington, N.M.; brother, Lowell Cary and wife, Susie, of Alaska; numerous nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends who loved her dearly.

He was 50 years old. The first attack at about noon came without warning while the mining man was happily getting his personal effects in order for a trip today to his old home in Chateaugay, N. Y. For several years he had suffered at times from dropsical ailments, and only recently had sojourned for three weeks at Clark's Wells, Pueblo. He returned home a week ago yesterday, feeling much improved. As a means of further promoting his good health, Mrs. Anderson had frequently urged him to visit his old home in New York, she said last night, but on each occasion he had put off the journey, until she again urged him to make the trip last week on his return from Pueblo. He had finally been prevailed upon to plan for this pleasant journey, and yesterday morning he was busily engaged with his wife in getting needed effects together. He had planned to go to Pueblo today, there spend a short time and then continue his journey to New York. While he worked about the house yesterday morning, with blithe spirits and feeling strong, he was seized by the first hemorrhage. Mrs. Anderson assisted him to bed and called a doctor. Late in the afternoon the heart and dropsical troubles brot on a second hemorrhage, which caused his death within a few minutes. Friends of the widely known mining man were shocked last night on learning the sad announcement. Mr. Anderson all last week, after his return to the city, had been actively engaged with his mining affairs, and only Saturday was downtown, spending part of the day in discussing details of the Anderson tunnel project with C. H. Weaver and H. A. Huttinger, of Toledo, Ohio, who are in the city and who are prominently interested in the Birdseye project. Arrangements for the funeral services, not completed last night, will be announced later. William B. Anderson was born in Chateaugay, N. Y., fifty years ago, the youngest child of a family of which one son and two sisters survive. He spent his boyhood there and remained in New York until his coming to Colorado and the Leadville district twenty-five years ago. On coming to Leadville he was employed by the Williams Lanther (?) company with which he was attached for a number of years. He became interested in mining during this employment, and since then had followed it almost continuously. For an extensive period he mined the Hope, meeting with varying success. Four years ago he conceived the extensive project now under way in the Birdseye district to drive a tunnel for railes (?) into Prospect mountain to open up the rich mineral deposits which are known to be buried there. He devoted untiring energy to this undertaking, and only last year gained the services (?) of Toledo and eastern mining men with whom he was rapidly pushing the project towards completion. His sudden death yesterday brot untimely end to his own participation in this extensive work which the public has watched with deep interest, but he has given it a beginning which is certain to advance as the greatest upbuilder of mining in the Birdseye district. Mr. Anderson possessed an energetic nature which kept him constantly engaged in activities of man _____. Until a short time ago when his mining ____rs demanded more of his leisure time, he had taken interested part in the local musicians' union, finding in this field diversion and an opportunity to play the cornet, which he had taken up first as a pastime and on which he later became proficient. His wife, who was formerly Miss Jennie Creed, whom he married at Ft. Covington, N. Y., is the only relative surviving here. His brother, Rudolph Anderson, lives at Albany, N. Y.; one sister, Mrs. Addie Smith, resides at the same city; Mrs. Jean Kissane, another sister, at Chateaugay, N. Y., and a nephew, Rudolph Smith, lives at Steamboat Springs, this state. Word was sent to these relatives last night. Mrs. George C. Whitmore, the wife of the manager of the Davis Drug company, is a sister of Mrs. Anderson. Mr. Anderson also took prominent part in the affairs of different local ___ges, in each of which he was highly thot of. He was a member of the A. F. and A. M. No. 51 and the Macabees. These orders will take part in the funeral ceremonies whenever they are held. Note: Parts of this obituary were difficult to read.
