Gribble, Andrew Y.
Andrew Y. Gribble - The Walsenburg, Hunt & Halbert Editors - August 2, 1900 – A Double Tragedy As the Result of a Row on Veta Pass – Two Men Are Now Dead - Coots Gribble is Shot Through the Abdomen, and James Persons Felled to the Ground - A Quarrel occurred at Veta Pass Sunday during the D. &. R.G. excursion picnic there which has resulted in the death of two men. A light rain had just fallen and greater part of the excursionist had congregated in the coaches and at the depot. The affair occurred so suddenly that the excursionists hardly knew what had happened till it was all over. The participants in the quarrel were Jas Persons, Coots Gribble, Louis Vasquez and Charles Campbell and as a consequence Persons and Gribble are now both dead. The men were congregated in a small ravine down the slope north of the station. The majority of the party lived around the district and had come to watch the excursionists, many of them having horses tethered about the ravine. They were all acquainted with each other and were talking and drinking. It seams that Vasquez and Persons became involved in a wordy war, some claiming that it was over a watch and others who knew the men saying that the respective merits of their horses was the subject of dispute. At any rate it was very trivial but one word led to another and finally it is said Persons drew a big knife and slashed Vasquez across the stomach inflicting a slight wound. In self defense Vasquez picked up a huge club and smashed Persons across the head with it, felling him to the ground. John Quinton who was one of the crowd is said to have walked toward the fighters with the intention of separating them, He had a 45 caliber six shooter in a scabbard strapped to his waist. As he moved toward the group Charles Campbell stepped behind him, pulled up his coat and jerked the revolver from the scabbard Quinton made a move a grasp the gun at the same rime demanding its return, but Campbell pointed it at him and ordered Quinton back, Campbell is though to have meant to shoot Vasquez and Gribble seized him from behind trying to grab the weapon. A short struggle followed then Campbell put the revolver muzzle against Gribble's stomach and pulled the trigger. Gribble fell and Campbell started away. Many of the excursionists ran down the hill and reached the spot, but Campbell pointed his gun at the leaders and coolly told them to move back. He walked quietly to a horse that was tethered about twenty yards from the ravine still holding the smoking revolver in his hand. With half a hundred people not many yards from him he started coolly to untie the reins, but found the knot to hard for his fingers and pulling a big knife he slashed the bridle reins. Mounting, he started off slowly when some in the crowd fired a shot at him. Campbell turned and banged away twice almost point blank at the excursionists. The would be murderer urged his horse to a slow trot and then a dozen revolvers flashed in the crowd and a number of bullets were sent whistling about the fugitive's ears. He never dained to notice them, however, and finally disappeared in the direction of Russell. Dr. J. R. Wright of La Veta did all that he could under the circumstances for the wounded men and accompanied them to Pueblo on the first returning section. The physicians care, however was of no avail and both Gribble who received the shot and Persons who was struck with the club, died Monday afternoon. Vasquez the man who used the club made no attempt to escape, but started in pursuit of Campbell with a Winchester, soon returning however and talked freely with various reporters. He returned to La Veta and from there was taken to Pueblo Monday to outcome of the affair. Sheriff Breen of San Luis was notified of the shooting and four hours after the affair took Campbell in custody at Placer, Campbell was wounded in the foot where he had evidently been hit by one of the shots fired at him as he was riding away. Gribble is one of the old residents of Huerfano County, having formerly lived at La Veta for many years; then at Aguilar. He is a lumber contractor and has been supplying the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company with timber of different kinds. Vasquez was connected with him in the business and both had gone to the Pass to see the excursionists. Vasquez is a young man and is a son of Harry (Hiram) Vasquez of Gardner, one of the old timers of Huerfano County. Gribble is 40 years old and has a family, a wife and several children at La Veta. Persons is a freighter by occupation and has been living at Placer, in the Grayback district. He is also well known through that county and has borne a good reputation. Campbell is somewhat of a stranger in the district as he only been there about a year. He has been employed in the mines of the Sloane Ripler Company at Grayback as a tool sharpener. His reputation has not been the best, as he was a drinking man and was regarded as something of a “bluffer.” The La Veta Advertiser - August 4, 1900 - It is with regret we note the unpleasant events of last Sunday's excursion to the past. The weather was pleasantly cool and the general program was nicely arranged for those taking an outing. The railroad company did their part like clock work and cared for those injured in an affray caused by the too free use of liquors and needless presence of guns on such an occasion. To the credit and justice of the excursion it must be said that those articles used in the row came from Russell, although the constant cracking of guns during the day was a matter of great danger in a gathering of that kind where stray shots were liable to cause serious results at any time. A number of people came up from Russell and Grayback, among them being James Persons who has been a freight and transfer man, and a companion Charles Campbell, a miner from Slone and Ripley's camp on Grayback. They were drinking and Persons got into a dispute with another party and flashed a knife, when Gregonia Vasques tried to mediate, Persons striking Vasques with the knife, cutting his clothes badly but not reaching his body. Persons pursued, and Vasques after a short run procured a club with which Persons was dispatched and left in a serious condition. About that time Campbell mixed in for Persons and finding the club a formidable obstacle ran through the crowd until seeing a cowboy standing with a revolver in his belt snatched it away and threatened to shoot any and all who opposed him. Vasques fell back into the crowd and Campbell started in pursuit when A.Y. Gribble clinched the gun. In the scuffle it was turned towards him and fired, the bullet entering his body near the center of the lower bowels and passing out at the right hip. Gribble fell and others drew back while Campbell wildly flourished the gun as he cut loose a horse and rode away before the crowd of spectators realized what had happened. As he went down the canon perhaps twenty shots were fired at him cutting the air uncomfortably close, as his actions indicated, but none were effective, and bareheaded, with short bridle rein and pistol in hand a thousand spectators saw him disappear among a shower of bullets, one of which made a severe wound in his left foot causing him to venture into Russell for food and to dress the wound. He went direct to Hudson's restaurant where shortly afterwards sheriff Breen and deputies captured him and started for San Luis where he is now in safe keeping. The two wounded men were cared for by Doctors Roripaugh and Wright who being present rendered prompt attention, and the railroad company ordered them placed on board the first section and sent at once the hospital at Pueblo. Both men were in a serious condition when they left and died on the following day. The remains of A.Y. Gribble were brought to LaVeta for interment on Wednesday morning and funeral services conducted by Rev. E. B. Chenoweth were held in the Methodist church on the afternoon of the same day. Mr. Gribble was a brother to Mrs. Henry Vasques and leaves also two brothers, both residing in Colorado to mourn his loss. He died in the attempt to protect a friend and as far as we can learn had no part in the quarrel. We understand that James Persons had a sister in Denver but was a comparative stranger in these parts. His remains were interred at Pueblo.

Mr. Griego – Silverton Standard – May 23, 1908 – A Trinidad Mexican, named Griego, was looking into the business end of a 22 calibre rifle, the gun went off and he's with the angels now.
Noverto Griego - Aspen Daily Chronicle. November 7, 1890 - Will Be Hanged To-Day - Canon City, Nov. 6 - Sometime tomorrow Noverto Griego, the Mexican who murdered W. S. Underwood at Trinidad on the third day of last June, will be executed in the penitentiary at this place. He is the first to be executed under the new law which provides that such sentences shall be executed inside the wall of the state penitentiary and shall be done in private, and fixing a penalty to be imposed upon any paper within the state publishing an account of the execution other than the simple announcement of the fact. The men who have been sentenced under the new law are Medly, Savage, Tyson, Holmes and Griego. The three first named, by technicalities in the law, have escaped the sentence and Holmes has been granted a new trial. Griego is a young man and takes his sentence hard. He cannot understand why he cannot escape the sentence, while so many others have done so before him. An appeal was made to the governor to commute the sentence to life imprisonment, but that official has refused absolutely to interfere. An Atrocious Crime - Denver, Nov. 6 - The crime for which the Mexican will hang is a most atrocious one. It is for the murder of W. L. Underwood, one of Trinidad's oldest and most respected citizens. It occurred during the evening of the 4th of last June. Underwood conducted a fairly lucrative grocery business in the Mexican portion of the town and was generally regarded as extremely well to do. His supposed riches excited the cupidity of Noverto and Prisciliano Griego, brothers, and a colored man named Jones, and a plan was hatched to rob him. In order to carry out their designs it became necessary to use violence, which resulted in the murder. The discovery of the crime was made several hours later by an old Mexican woman entering the store to make a purchase. For two days the police were hopelessly baffled in their attempt to obtain even a clue to the murderer, when, almost despairing, an important communication was made by a Mexican woman. On the eve of the murder she had seen two Mexicans, the Griego brothers, loitering in the vicinity of Underwood's premises, and later had observed them washing their hands in an adjoining creek. Acting upon this information the police promptly arrested the two suspected Mexicans. A search of their house resulted in unearthing a quantity of blood-stained clothing on which blood marks were quite visible. Notwithstanding such convincing proof, the Griegos stolidly denied any knowledge of or complicity in the crime, but informed the police that suspicion pointed to one Jones, a colored man of their acquaintance. He, too, was promptly arrested and the trio brought to a speedy trial. It resulted disastrously to all concerned. Although the evidence was purely circumstantial, it was of such a positive nature that no one of the perpetrators of the Underwood murder escaped. Noverto Griego, who hacked the old man with a hammer from the rear while his brother engaged him in conversation, was found guilty of murder in the first degree. Judge Gunter named the week of November third as the time upon which he shall expiate the penalty of his crime upon the gallows. Prisciliano Griego and his brother were each sentenced to life imprisonment and are wearing the stripes in the Canon City penitentiary. Colorado Public Defender - November 8, 1890 – Noverto Griego, Trinidad (Las Animas County). H-W. Hanging/Broken neck. Griego (Mexican) was convicted of murdering W. L. Underwood, a merchant who ran a grocery store that catered to the Hispanic community. Underwood's killer hit him on the back of his head with a hammer while he worked at the store. His hand clutched a piece of paper, which indicated that his last sale had been to someone named “Griego.” Upon discovering his body the next morning, the authorities also found that Underwood's jewelry, as well as all the cash in the store, had been stolen. A second participant in the crimes, an African-American named George Upton (a.k.a. John Jones), received a sentence of life imprisonment, rather than death, in exchange for testifying against Griego. Both men confessed to their crimes. The execution was the first under state authority at the prison in Cañon City. The public did not know exact time of Griego's execution in advance or the name of the executioner, and no representatives from the press were permitted to witness it. Rocky Mountain Sun - November 15, 1890 - Noverto Griego was hanged in the Canon City penitentiary last Saturday. Griego was a Mexican, and the crime for which he suffered an ignominious death was the brutal murder of an old and inoffensive man named Underwood, the Mexican killing him for his money. The murderer met his fate with stolid indifference, and his body was turned over to his wife.
