Gilbert, George
George Gilbert - Pueblo Chieftain - September 23, 2001 - Cemetery Ghosts Tell Stories of Pueblo's Past By James Amos - George Gilbert has been dead a long time, but he came back "above the grass" Saturday for "A Walk Through History" at the Pueblo Pioneer Cemetery. Saturday marked the fourth year of the living history event, sponsored by the Pueblo Parks and Recreation Department and the Pueblo Pioneer Cemetery Committee. Gilbert, Portrayed by local volunteer Phillip Redinger, was one of several cemetery denizens to talk about their lives in early Pueblo. Gilbert said he had two grave markers, one placed by his second wife, but he doesn't know where the other stone came from. After all it's a little hard to get reliable information from the early 1900s, informative ghost or not. Gilbert was born in New York in 1836 and came to Pueblo after trying to prospect for gold in the Colorado mountains with little success. He moved to a spot east of Boone and married, but his first wife died at 35. His two sons later died from diphtheria and after he remarried he and his second wife lost a young daughter too. He sold his herd of 1,500 cattle and moved into town in 1879. Gilbert worked around the Pueblo and helped lay out the city, according to Redinger. He died at the age of 75 in 1911. Redinger said this is his third year portraying one of the cemetery's residents. The first year he performed a small skit in addition to his talk. Further down the cemetery trail, Tom Cummings portrayed one-time Pony Express rider J.J. Thomas. Thomas was born in 1837 and worked as a teamster in the Army in southern Kansas before he moved to Colorado to help built a stage stop. When the Oak Creek stage stop east of Denver was finished, Thomas and his friend were hired to be Pony Express riders and were the first in the area. But Thomas, too, caught gold fever and spent a cold and hungry time in the mountains before joining a Colorado unit going to the Civil War. Thomas thought he would be shipped east to fight, but instead stayed in the West and was part of the battle at Glorietta Pass in New Mexico. Area historian Eleanor Fry said, the battle sprang from a plan by the South to take over the Southern part of the Western states, including some of Colorado's gold fields. Thomas's Union Army unit "headed them off at the pass" Fry said. Thomas also was part of a unit sent to recover materials stolen by Indians in a raid near Santa Fe, Cummings said. The unit trailed the Indians nearly; to Amarillo, Texas, and there recovered 94 mules without a fight. Thomas' fortunes took a turn upward when he returned to Pueblo and, with, partners, built a toll bridge across the Arkansas River, ran a hotel and sold vegetables he grew where the current Midtown Shopping Center stands. With his economic success, the former horse-feed hauler hung around with one of the Thatcher banking brothers, became postmaster, county treasurer and even represented the area in Colorado's second state assembly. Thomas died in 1911 and had five children, although two died when they were young, Cummings said. Fry did the research on each of the history walk's 13 characters. She is a member of the Pueblo County Historical Society and the Committee for the Restoration of the Pueblo Pioneers Cemetery. "I've been working on this for about 20 years," Fry said. She found her information in old archives of The Pueblo Chieftain, including long reminiscences written by Thomas himself Fry said there's a wealth of information about the town's rich and powerful in the old newspaper articles. "Some of these early pioneers, every time they crossed the street it was reported in the paper," she said.

Gilbert, Marian C.
Marian C. Gilbert - Rocky Mountain News - October 01, 1911, Page 1 - Mrs. Marian C. Gilbert is charged with giving her husband rat poison, by Pueblo officials. Her husband died Aug 31, 1910. Charges of causing her husband's death were made by the Brotherhood of American Yeomen, which resisted payment of a $2,000 life insurance policy carried by Gilbert. Mrs. Gilbert had sued for settlement, but she dismissed it on June 10, 1911, endeavoring to reach a compromise. Gilbert was a freight conductor for 14 yeas on Denver & Rio Grande. Coming home on Aug 31, 1910 he complained of a severe headache. He kept a prescription for this ailment, took a dose, became unconscious and died shortly after arriving at the hospital. Mrs. Gilbert later moved to Denver. Rocky Mountain News – October 20, 1911, Page 3 - Trial News Article - Mrs. Gilbert continues her suit even though she has been arrested on a charge of killing her husband. She charges the insurance company with conspiring to secure an indictment against her and with threatening to secure her arrest on this count if she persisted in trying to collect the $2,000 insurance. Mrs. Gilbert claims in an affidavit that representative of the Yeomen called on her shortly after her husband's death, and tired to coerce her into not making a claim for his insurance, threatening to charge her with the murder if she persisted. She was arrested in Denver, Sep 30 and was taken to Pueblo, where she will be tried next month. She claims she has no funds to prosecute her suit and asks permission to sue at county expense.

Giles, Fred
Fred Giles – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 22, 1877 – Shooting Affray – Fred. Giles Killed – From a private letter from Del Norte received by a gentleman in this city, dated the 12th inst., we learn the following particulars of a shooting affray near that place on Saturday last, which resulted in the death of Fred. Giles, a son of M. M. Giles, formerly of this city. It seems that John Arms, of this city, owns some oxen which M. M. Giles had in his possession, and claimed them as his own. Mr. Arms being desirous to obtain possession of the animals authorized parties residing in Del Norte to proceed according to law and recover them if possible. The parties so authorized, accompanied by an officer of the law and provided with the proper papers, proceeded to the Piρos saw mill, thirteen miles from Del Norte, where Giles resides, for the purpose of taking possession of the oxen. Giles, it seems, knew of the coming of the officers, and placing the cattle in the building and arming himself, threatened to kill anybody who undertook to take the cattle. The officers returned to Del Norte for assistance, and soon came back to the mill assisted by several armed men. Some shooting then followed, in the course of which young Giles was killed. Mr. and Mrs. Giles are both under arrest. The Murder of Fred Giles – A few days since we published an account of one side of the story of the shooting of Fred Giles, a son of M. M. Giles, formerly of this city. We now give another version of the affair, published in the Del Norte Prospector, which if correct shows that Fred. Giles was brutally murdered, and M. M. Giles and his wife cruelly and unjustifiably assaulted by ruffians acting under legal authority. The following is the Prospector's account of the affair: M. M. Giles had in his possession an ox that was claimed by Dr. W. W. Allen, and on Tuesday, the 6th inst., Allen went before Justice Goodrich and got out a writ of replevin, which in the absence of any of the regular officers, was placed in the hands of B. U. Vincent, who was deputized to act for this occasion. On Wednesday Vincent went after the ox, which Giles refused to give up. Vincent returned to town and went before Justice Haffy, and swore out a complaint against Giles for resisting an officer of the law, whereupon a warrant was issued for his arrest and placed in the hands of Constable Winter, who having some other business to attend at the time, deputized ____ Robinson to make the arrest. Saturday forenoon Robinson, in company with Vincent, started to Giles' place, the former to arrest Giles and the latter with the replevin for the ox. They both went direct to the house and while the warrant for the arrest of Giles was being read an altercation ensued in which Vincent struck Giles with his revolver, inflicting a severe wound on the left temple, then turned and struck Mrs. Giles on the head, knocking her down. Robinson caught Giles and raised him from the ground, at the same time telling him he was his prisoner. As soon as Giles was sufficiently recovered from the effects of the blow he called to his son to get the gun and shoot, which according to the testimony of Robinson he did, shooting three times, but not hitting either of them. Both officers then took to their heels and made lively time until out of range of the gun. Robinson then went to some of the neighbors, and summoned a posse to arrest and take Giles, but during the time Vincent had gone above the house, where he awaited the return of the posse, evidently intending, if Giles put in an appearance, to put a quietus upon him, but in the meanwhile the son appeared and while in the act of picking up some chips was fired upon by Vincent, and according to the testimony of Dr. Metcalfe, who performed the post mortem examination, the ball entered the top of the head, passed through the brain and heart and lodged in the lumbar region, producing instant death. The ball was from a Sharp's rifle, forty-four calibre. The posse with Robinson were about sixty yards from the house, did not see the boy fall, but came to the spot soon after. Upon hearing the report of the gun Giles rushed from the bed, where he had gone from weakness of loss of blood, to the door, and when he saw the men and what had been done, threw up his hands, wildly exclaiming: “Good God! Men, see what you have done. Are you going to kill us all?” Constable Winter being afraid that some difficulty would arise, as soon as he could leave got a horse and followed, arriving at the scene a few minutes after the boy was killed. This was at about two o'clock P. M. He stationed guards over the corpse until Coroner Hill could be summoned and an inquest held, arrested Vincent and brought Giles and all the party to town. The inquest was held Sunday and the body was brought to town, it having been decided that a post mortem examination would be necessary, which was conducted by Dr. Metcalfe with the results above given. The coroner's jury returned a verdict of unjustifiable homicide, and a portion of the preliminary examination took place before Justice Goodrich, when a postponement was asked for and granted until the 19th of this month. Vincent is now in jail awaiting trial. Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 29, 2877 – The trial of U. B. Vincent, charged with the murder of Fred Giles, took place, says the Prospector, before 'Squire Goodrich Wednesday. The court ruled that no circumstantial evidence could be admitted and as there was no evidence to show that Vincent had done the shooting, there was no case and Vincent was discharged. We have conversed with a number of persons on the subject, and there seems to be an impression that a regular trial should have been gone through with and all the circumstances brought out that would throw any light on the subject. That Vincent killed the boy there is no doubt, but under what circumstances should have been proved and if he were justifiable should have been proven so.
