Barker, Ella
Ella Barker - Yampa Leader - November 27, 1914 - Tries to take Children with Her “to Heaven” when she jumps from Pueblo Bridge. Pueblo, Colo. - After a thrilling fight at the railing of the bridge, in which two little girls, clad only in nightgowns, fought desperately against their mother, who was going to “take them to heaven,” Mrs. Ella Barker, thirty-five, jumped off the West Fourth street bridge into the Arkansas river bottom at 2 o'clock in the morning.

Lillian grasped the railing, the nightgown was ripped off and the little girl hung suspended in midair as the mother, part of the garment in her hand, dashed to her death.
