Gooch, C. B.
C. B. Gooch - Wray Rattler - June 28, 1907 - Three Blown Into Eternity - Boiler on Engine Explodes With Terrific Force - The boiler on engine No. 110 of a Denver & Rio Grande westbound train exploded just as the train rounded a curve one mile east of Florence at 5:30 the morning of June 19th. The engineer, fireman, and head brakeman were instantly killed. The body of the engineer, Thomas Ewing, was blown sixty-five yards to the right of the cab. The body of the fireman, N. J. O'Brien, was found 100 yards back of the engine close to the track. There were about ten cars of rails in the train, and about the tenth car, the body of the fireman struck the rails. He slid along until he struck one of the standards of the car and fell from there to the ground, his body being picked up just at the side of the track. The head brakeman, who was evidently riding on the fireman's side of the cab, was C. B. Gooch. He was found fifty yards to the left of the train. His back was badly scalded and he was internally injured. Ewing, the engineer, had a wife and three children living at Pueblo. Some years ago he was night marshal at Florence. N. J. O'Brien, the fireman, was evidently throwing a shovelful of coal into the fire at the time of the explosion. His body is badly burned all over and he must have traveled over the tender and a distance of fully ten car lengths before he fell from the train. Head Brakeman Gooch lived a few minutes after his body was found. Gooch and O'Brien also lived in Pueblo and O'Brien leaves a widow and two children. Gooch was single. Boiler Flew Far. The crown sheet of the boiler was found about twenty yards from where the explosion took place, but the boiler bounded ahead, struck the rails about 100 feet ahead of where it burst and bounded from there to a field at the right of the track. From there it took another jump and eventually landed about eighty yards from where the trucks were left standing uninjured upon the track. John Martz, the conductor in charge of the train, claims that while riding in the caboose at 5:32 o'clock he heard the terrific explosion and the sudden jar of the train, and, as he looked out, he saw the bodies of the three men sailing through the air. An examination of the boiler by engineers of experience shows that the water was very low. The crown sheet was burned badly and the heads of many rivets burned off. Ewing, the engineer, was a member of the local lodge of Masons of Florence and also a member of the Pueblo lodge of Elks. But little appears to be known of Brakeman Gooch, he having been a new man on this division.

Good, James
James Good – Durango Democrat – April 18, 1906 – Excluded Testimony of Only Living Witness – Pueblo, April 17 – A special to the Chieftain from Canon City says: “Mel Long was found guilty of murder in the second degree today. He was convicted of the killing of his brother-in-law, James Good, in November last. The jury was out but 45 minutes. The court refused to allow the wife of the defendant to testify in the case. She is supposed to have been the only living witness of the crime. The ante-mortem statement of Long's victim was practically the only evidence offered. Mrs. Long's statement to the coroner was also excluded.”

Goodwin, Myron H.
Myron H. Goodwin - Memorial to Fallen Officers - The presence of the Memorial to Fallen Officers in the lobby of the Colorado Corrections Training Academy, Cañon 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: Myron H. Goodwin - Myron Goodwin died several days after being shot during the riot. He was 63 years old. Initially, Officer Goodwin was shot through the lung and chest by a bullet from the gun of Danny Daniels, one of the leaders of the outbreak. It was written at the time about Goodwin that quick actions frustrated the convicts' attempt to break for freedom. Goodwin, stationed in tower No. 1 at the southwest corner of the stone wall, was true to prison tradition. He threw away his keys when the attack started and began firing. It was he who shot Jimmy Pardue, the ring leader of the disturbance, fatally wounding him. Prison officials credited Goodwin's promptness in shooting down Pardue with having stopped spread a general break by the 1200 inmates. Goodwin was survived by a wife and four sons.
