Frank Emmons – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – March 20, 1879 – Murder – A private letter of the date of March 7th, just received from Animas City says the Tribune, states that news had that day arrived from Montezuma Valley, which a short distance west of the Mancos river, in La Plata county, that John Watkins, had killed Frank Emmons, shooting him five times, twice in the arms, twice in the legs and once through the heart. The cause of the shooting is not yet known. Watkins and James Belmar were in charge of a flock of sheep belonging to Mr. Daniel Culver, a well known merchant of Animas City, which they had taken on shares. Watkins evidently went about the murder very deliberately as he first gave a bill of sale to Belmar for his interest in the flock and then told him he was going to kill Emmons. He rode up to the camp where the latter was and deliberately shot him down, and while Emmons was lying on the ground shot him again. He then left, and is supposed to have gone to New Mexico. Emmons died in a half hour after being shot. Watkins was formerly from Huerfano county, where his parents still reside. Frank Emmons came to Colorado from Manchester, New Hampshire, and during the rebellion enlisted in the Ninth New Hampshire volunteers, in which he became a lieutenant and in command of a company. For some bad conduct he was dismissed, but afterwards enlisted in the Second Louisiana volunteers (union) at New Orleans under Butler. After the war he enlisted in the regular army, and upon his discharge wandered into the San Juan. He was a man of good education, but of dissipated habits, and thievish in his proclivities. There is little likelihood that Watkins will put himself in reach of the sheriff. The country in which the murder was committed is very wild and unsettled. It is near the boundary lines of Utah, New Mexico and Arizona, which territories will afford the murderer limitless chances of escape.

Emrich, Horace H.
Horace H. Emrich - Rocky Mountain News - October 21, 1911 - Horace H. Emrich, one of the best known graduates of the Colorado State School of Mines, died Wednesday at Kishtyn, Russia. He was shot in his office and notice has been received that the funeral will be Kishtyn Friday afternoon. He was general manager for an English company owning extensive copper mines and of smelters at Kishtyn. About one year ago the vaults of the company were robbed and he was active in prosecuting the robbers. It is presumed that in this he incurred the enmity of friends of the robbers, and that his death was the result. This theory, however, is only problematical in the absence of any further advices from Mrs. Emrich. His mother and two brothers, Clarence and Jay, live in Golden and his sister, Mrs. Alfred J. Nichols, lives at 4905 East Twenty-second Avenue. Mrs. Emrich's mother is Mrs. Nina P. Robinson, 2025 Fairfax Street. Mrs. Emrich stated she will leave as soon as possible for Denver.
