Corfell, Stephen
Stephen Corfell - Colorado Daily Chieftain – August 3, 1876 - Drowned – A week ago last Saturday a young man supposed to be named Stephen Corfell, was accidentally drowned in a lake in the Huerfano valley, a short distance from Butte Valley crossing. Corfell, says the Huerfano Independent, had been in the employ of the Worthington brothers as a horse breaker, and after leaving their place on the preceding Saturday, camped with John Bond and others, about five miles from Walsenburg. Sunday he traveled toward the Apache with Mr. Paul Reed, and when near the lake in question, Reed proposed a swim. This was agreed to by Corfell, and they, nearly together, entered the water. In the meantime Reed asked the other if he could swim and received an affirmative reply. But before any swimming depth had been obtained in the lake, the unfortunate man began jokingly to call for help, stating that he was drowning. This, of course, Mr. Reed did not heed, except to tell him he had better not call out in that manner when not in danger as no one would believe him if he really was about to drown. In the meantime, he swam across the lake and gained the opposite bank. As soon as he was on shore he again heard Corfell call loudly for help, and then seeing he was struggling in the water he swam toward him, but before he reached that part of the lake the unfortunate man had sank for the last time. The body was taken from the lake, and in absence of Coroner Dr. Rothe, Justice of the Peace Worthington held an inquest at Butte Valley, at which the verdict of death by accidental drowning was returned. The deceased was quite a young man, and while Mr. Paul Reed, who saw him for the last time alive, thinks his name was Stephan Corfell, he is not quite positive in the matter.
