Erdman, Albert I.
Albert I. Erdman - Pueblo Weekly Chieftain - April 3, 1879 - Albert I. Erdman, born December 17, 1869, died March 17, 1879 - It is with pain and a sad heart that we chronicle the sad affliction to the family of Mr. Charles Erdman, an old and esteemed citizen of this county, living at Nepesta, about twenty-five miles down the river. Mr. Erdman's family a month ago numbered nine persons - father, mother and seven children. Today there are but three alive - the afflicted parents and oldest child, a boy. On Saturday last the sixth funeral took place from the desolate homestead, the last victim being the youngest child. Five weeks ago the first victim contracted the scarlet fever and after a few days of severe suffering, died. Mr. Erdman, we are informed, attributes the contracting of the disease to the number of dead cattle putrefying and decomposing in the vicinity of his home. If this is the case the county commissioners are responsible for the breaking up of a happy family. Mrs. Erdman is at present ailing, but it is thought and hoped it is nothing serious. The writer has known Mr. Erdman and family long and well, and sincerely sympathizes with him in his present sad affliction. "May God temper the wind to the shorn lamb."

Erringer, Joe
Joe Erringer – Creede Candle – July 23, 1904 – Joe Erringer died at the insane asylum at Pueblo last Monday. Albert, a brother of the deceased from Lacon, Ill., who arrived shortly after Joe was taken to Pueblo, is here looking after what effects might have been left by deceased with the apparent intent of taking what he can regardless of the accounts of creditors. There are some accounts against the estate that the conservator has the money to settle, but Brother Albert is endeavoring to get the county judge to issue an order on the conservator to pay bills that he contracted in the way of extra funeral expenses, in preference to Joe's bills contracted while living here, which could and should have been paid upon his being taken to the asylum. From our conversation with brother Albert he does not seem inclined to settle up Joe's personal accounts here providing there is not enough left in the hands of the conservator after paying the bill that he himself contracted while attending Joe at his death. It is yet to be seen whether what Joe left is to pay his accounts or the accounts of his affectionate brother, who has carelessly intimated to some here that he is well circumstanced. The total indebtedness against the estate will not exceed $200 and deceased left in cash a little over $125. The accounts against the estate are for board, nurse hire, drug and doctor bills and a few other incidental accounts, all contracted by Joe when sick. Joe was not a pauper and had he been penniless he had friends who would have seen to his wants and taken care of him before allowing him to become a charge upon the county and every debt that Joe contracted before his death would have been paid if brother Albert had not made additional accounts that were not necessary when he does not care to pay them himself.

Erwin, Elmer G.
Elmer G. Erwin - Memorial to Fallen Officers - The presence of the Memorial to Fallen Officers in the lobby of the Colorado Corrections Training Academy, Caρon City, stands as an everlasting symbol of honor to the fourteen men who have given their lives in the line of duty. The Colorado DOC recognizes the ultimate price paid, dedication and loyalty of the following men: Riot - 1929 - October 3, 1929 - The deadly riot of October 3, 1929, at the Colorado State Penitentiary was preceded earlier that summer by a series of riots in two New York prisons and the Federal Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas. These riots prompted rumors that an organized effort to disrupt the nation's prison system was underway. The riots left 8 staff dead. Details of the tragedy indicated that it was the "bloodiest chapter in the history of the Colorado State Prison." Not only were lives lost, but also large sections of the prison were destroyed by fire. It is estimated that over 2,000 rounds of ammunition were fired during the melee. Perhaps these words written in the Warden's Report to the Colorado Board of Corrections in 1930 say it best: "I wish at this time to commend them for their bravery, loyalty and the supreme sacrifice they made. Their memories will always be held in the deepest reverence and respect by the officials and remaining co-workers." The following men lost their lives in the line of duty: Elmer G. Erwin - Officer Erwin died at age 62. A native of Indiana, Erwin had first worked as a guard at the Silver Spruce Camp between Canon City and Salida.
