Toll Caldwell - World Independent – January 13, 1881 - Died With His Boots On – Toll Caldwell Passes in His Checks – The Traditional Old Style Revived is His Case – From the Silver Cliff Republican we are able to obtain the particulars of the killing of Toll Caldwell, a character widely known in this county: Toll Caldwell has played his last game. The percentage was against him, and while he knew he could but lose, like a thorough sport, he played to the end of the deal. At the Huerfano he became intimate with a Mexican woman, and had some difficulty with her husband. Accompanied by the woman he came to Silver Cliff, where they lived together some time. Meanwhile the husband of the woman had disappeared. Search being instituted his body was found in an abandoned shaft near Mosca Pass. Caldwell remained here until last summer, when he and the woman removed to New Mexico, where he had not very long lived until he had some difficulty with a mail carrier whom he shot and killed. A few days later he had some trouble while in a fandango, and when surrounded by the woman's relations, who both feared and hated him. The difficulty finally resulted in the killing of a musician by Caldwell, when he in turn fell mortally wounded. There is no doubt in the minds of those familiar with the circumstances attending his death but that he was the victim of a conspiracy and that his Mexican enemies had long been awaiting an opportunity to avenge the death of the woman's husband, for whose murder they always blamed Caldwell. Thus one more of those who were well known and identified with our earlier history has passed away in the old traditional style, and in recording his death we can but say, "he died with his boots on." Gambler and desperado though he was, still many can tell of his deeds of kindness and charity, but the cords of a hardened heart had never been touched by the hand that could cause them to thrill responsive to nobler motives, and he died as he had lived, "only a gambler." Above article was reprinted from the Silver Cliff Republican in the Milwaukee Daily Sentinel, Monday, January 31, 1881, Page 5, Issue 25, Column D.

Calland, Garfield E.
Garfield E. Calland - Walsenburg World - May 19, 1921 - Gar Calland, a homesteader near Rattlesnake Buttes was shot and killed by a neighbor named Sam Hand about 7:30 Sunday evening. The cause of the killing was a quarrel of about two years standing over a line fence. The fence originally stood on the boundary line of Hand's property. This fence Hand moved fifteen feet over onto his own property. Calland brought his fence to poin Hand's and Hand tore it down. This procedure was repeated several times and some last week Mrs. Calland shot at Mrs. Hand when she was tearing down the fence. Hand came to town and swore to a complaint against Mrs. Calland for assault with intent to kill. Sunday night Calland was approaching the point in dispute when Hand shot him with a Winchester, killing him instantly. At the coroner's inquest held Tuesday afternoon, the testimony of the coroner as to how he found the body of Mr. Calland, and the testimony of Mrs. Calland and Mrs. Calland's mother was presented to the jury. After a short deliberation the jury returned the following verdict; “That Garfield E. Calland came to the death in the Rattlesnake Buttes district, Huerfano County, Colorado, by a bullet fired from a gun in the hand of Samuel Hand and we further find that the shot was fired with felonious intent. May 14th. 1921.” Signed, E.L. Sears, C.M. Buckles, Chas. Mazzone, F.H. Danford, Wn. Klier, Robert Young.
