Anderson, William B.
William B. Anderson – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – March 27, 1916 – Sudden Death of W. B. Anderson – Well-Known Mining Man Attacked by Hemorrhage While Gathering His Effects for Journey East – William B. Anderson, mining man in the Leadville district for twenty-five years and the man who gave the name to the Anderson tunnel project in the Birdseye district, died suddenly at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon at his home, 223 East Ninth street, following two hemorrhages which affected him at noon and shortly before his death. 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.

Andrews, J. Newton
J. Newton Andrews - Colorado Public Defender – June 16, 1905 - J. Newton Andrews and Fred Arnold. June 16, 1905. Denver. W-W. Hanging/Broken necks. The pair was convicted in separate trials of the murder of sixty-three-year- old Amanda E. Youngblood during an attempted robbery at her home, which also served as a small neighborhood grocery store. Her husband responded to a knock at the door at eleven-thirty p.m. on New Year's Eve, 1903, and found three men who requested to use his telephone. Without suspicion, he invited them inside, where they immediately announced a hold-up. Mr. Youngblood resisted. The commotion awakened Mrs. Youngblood and the Youngblood's son, and they entered the room where the confrontation was taking place. The three men then murdered Mrs. Youngblood and shot the Youngblood's son in the jaw. Although both defendants confessed to involvement in the crimes, claiming they were drunk, each blamed the other for firing the fatal shot. The third intruder, Charles Peters, age twenty-five, received a death sentence for the murders, but his sanity was questioned and he was never executed. Arnold, a laborer, was nineteen-years-old at the time of his execution; Andrews, who worked for the railroads, was two years older and had a prior arrest for burglarizing telephone boxes. Before their executions, the Colorado Supreme Court upheld a new death penalty statute passed by the Colorado legislature in 1901, ending a four year period of abolition.
