Gaines, Richard
Richard Gaines – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – September 11, 1879 – Death of Mr. Richard Gaines – The news of the death of Mr. Richard Gaines, at his home in this city, says the Colorado Springs Gazette, will be received with profound sorrow by a large circle of personal friends. Mr. Gaines had been suffering during the summer from a bilious attack, but seemed of late to be recovering his usual degree of health, but he suffered a relapse, and at half past four Sunday afternoon expired, after an illness of about sixteen hours. Mr. Gaines was born in Georgetown, District of Columbia, on the 24th of September, 1810. When he was still an infant his parents removed to Cincinnati, Ohio, where he passed his boyhood and grew up to manhood. Being a young man of strong character, he thoroughly imbibed the liberal principals of William Lloyd Garrison and other abolitionists and of course took an active part in opposing the cruel and unjust fugitive slave law, and, in conjunction with many other Ohio abolitionists, assisted many a poor, hunted slave on to Canada and freedom. About 1854, Mr. Gaines removed with his family to Fairfield, Jefferson county, Iowa. In that young growing state he soon found a wide field for the exercise of his liberal principles and also for his keen intelligence and ability in organizing and managing affairs of public importance. He took a prominent place among the leading men of the state, and contributed not a little to the success of some of her home institutions. He was a member of the first board of trustees of the agricultural college, located at Ames, now a flourishing college of upwards of four hundred students, was the first superintendent of the college farm and during his superintendency planned and directed the erection of the brick farm house and the barns and out-buildings, and by his own personal efforts in opposition to the opinions of his fellow trustees secured through the influence of the United States senator from southern Iowa, the magnificent appropriation of lands which to-day brings to that institution the handsome revenue which makes it almost if not quite sustaining. Mr. Gaines, thinking he would find a better and wider field for the business pursuits of his family, came to Colorado, arriving in El Paso county in May, 1870. He settled on the Fountain, six miles below Colorado Springs, and turned his attention to cattle raising, and took but a small part in the politics of the state outside of his own county. He was known by all his acquaintances as a close thinker, a man of integrity, and a firm advocate of temperance. By these fine qualities of heart and mind, he secured the friendship of hosts of people throughout the state. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity and reached a high standing in that society, being a Royal Arch Mason in good standing. His death is mourned by an estimable wife and a large family of sons and daughters.
