Ferguson, Wilbur N.
Wilbur N. Ferguson -Telluride Daily Journal - June 2, 1922 - Two Murdered When Jealous Suitor Shoots - Mine Watchman Kills His Rival in Home of the Girl - Uses a Shot Gun - Girl Flees but Her Head Is Blown Off by Pursuer - Trinidad, Colo., June 2 - Ella Centers, aged 25, and Wilbur Ferguson were foully murdered here last night by Joseph McGonigal, a jealous suitor. Miss Centers, the daughter of the boarding house keeper at the Royal mine, was in her home last night with Ferguson, who was writing a letter. McGonigal, a watchman at the Jewel mine, entered the house and shot Ferguson, who died immediately. The Centers girl fled, but was pursued by McGonigal who blew her head off with a shot gun. It is believed that the shooting took place over the hand of Miss Centers. Ferguson, of Saco, Maine, and a student in the School of Mines, was a temporary watchman at the Royal mine and boarded at the Centers' home. Miss Centers accepted the attentions of Ferguson and this made McGonigal furiously jealous and the double killing resulted. Immediately after the shooting McGonigal was arrested. It was found that he had a bullet wound in his foot, but this wound is believed to have been self-inflicted. Golden Colorado Transcript - June 8, 1922 - Popular Mines Student Murdered at Coal Camp - Wilbur Ferguson, prominent athlete and one of the most popular students of the School of Mines, was shot and instantly killed at Aguilar last Thursday by Joe McGonigal, a watchman. The shooting occurred in the dining room of the mine boarding house where Ferguson was sitting at a table writing. J. C. Williams, master of the Golden Masonic lodge, of which order Ferguson was a member, made a trip to Aguilar last Saturday to get the correct information concerning the murder, and found that the shooting of young Ferguson was a cold blooded affair and without provocation. On Thursday morning Ferguson was in the dining room writing a letter to his mother. McGonigal suddenly entered the room, carrying a sawed-off shotgun. He ordered Ferguson to get out of the house. Ferguson looked up from his writing, but made no move to arise from his chair, and with that McGonigal drew down on him with the gun and fired. The charge of buckshot entered Ferguson's chest. When McGonigal first entered the dining room, Ella Centers, daughter of the boarding house keeper, and with whom McGonigal was infatuated, was at work in a pantry adjoining the dining room. Another girl was with her. Just before the shot was fired the Centers girl rushed into the room, apparently with the idea of preventing the shooting. When Ferguson fell the girl rushed out of the house and into a deep arroyo, McGonigal running after her. McGonigal ran along the edge of the gulch and finally got just above the girl. She fell on her knees and pleaded with him to spare her life, but, taking slow and deliberate aim at her, he fired, killing the girl instantly. Several men working on a bridge nearby were witnesses to this killing. After shooting the girl, McGonigal fled to his own room in the boarding house and fired several shots from a revolver into his hat brim. He then sent a bullet into his foot and went into the room where Ferguson was lying. He placed the revolver about (?) Ferguson and then threw himself on the floor, pretending to be unconscious. State rangers entered the house and found the killer in that position. He was yanked to his feet, and the only thing he would say when questioned as to his motive in killing Ferguson and the girl was "Dead men tell no tales." Ferguson's right hand still grasped the fountain pen with which he had been writing, showing that there had been no fight. McGonigal had been known in the coal camp for some time as an all around bad man. The coroner's jury brought in a verdict Saturday to the effect that the killing was premeditated and felonious. Young Ferguson left Golden soon after school closed to take a job as watchman at the Royal mine at Aguilar, planning in this way to earn money to aid him in completing his college course. The Royal mine is owned by the National Fuel Company and officers of that company told Mr. Williams Sunday that Ferguson had so impressed them that a much better position was being prepared for him. Ferguson was one of the most popular men in the School of Mines, and was a favorite with students, faculty members and townspeople in general and his untimely death has brought great sorrow to this community. During the war Ferguson enlisted in Maine and served overseas in a machine gun company. After returning from France he came to Golden and entered the School of Mines as a freshman. He became a general favorite at once, and was elected president of the freshman class. He took a prominent part in athletics and all student activities and last fall was one of the mainstays of the Mines football team. He had been elected president of next year's junior class. He was a member of the Masonic order and of the local chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Ferguson, live in Saco, Maine, and he also leaves one brother. The body was taken to Denver and services were held at the Olinger mortuary yesterday morning, being attended by many lodge and fraternity brothers of the deceased, as well as many other friends. The remains have been shipped to the home in Maine for interment.

Ferry, Luke
Luke Ferry - Huerfano World - October 31, 2002 – 1913 La Veta Massacre - Excerpted from article published October 31, 2002. Four men met sudden death on Nov. 8, 1913 outside of La Veta. The incident occurred near the beginning of the 1913-1914 coal strike which lasted over one year. One day a scab in Oakview named William Gamblin needed to see a dentist. The nearest one being in La Veta, Gamblin walked into town and received care. He then phoned to the mine and requested a ride back. Capt. H.F. Bryan, Driver Luke Ferry, W.H. Whitten and R.G. Adams, drove into town and picked up Gamblin. As they began their trip back to the mine, just as they began to drive up the incline just west of town, a fusillade of gunfire rained down upon them. An unknown number of men were secreted behind Lougheed dam on the top of the hill, and they continued firing until the four mine guards were still. All four guards were killed, but Gamblin somehow survived the attack without injury.
