Gurley, H. M.
H. M. Gurley – Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – October 8, 1875 – Died on the 7th inst., at the Lindell Hotel, in this city, of typhoid fever, H. M. Gurley, formerly of Washington, D. C., aged 28 years. Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – October 8, 1875 – A general meeting of the fire department of the city of Pueblo will be held at the house of No. 1 Hose Company, this (Friday) morning at ten o'clock, to take action upon the death of our late fellow member, H. M. Gurley. A full attendance is requested. Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – October 9, 1875 – Funeral of H. M. Gurley – One of the largest and most imposing funeral processions ever witnessed in this city was that which followed the remains of Mr. H. M. Gurley to their final resting place in the city cemetery on Friday afternoon. For the first time since the organization of our fire department death has stricken one of its members, taking as usual, one of its most active and enthusiastic workers. During the last illness of the deceased, which was very short, he was visited by many of his comrades of Hose company No. 1, and as soon as his death occurred the arrangements for the funeral were taken in charge by them and every detail attended to in the best possible manner. On the morning succeeding his death, a general meeting of the fire department was held and it was resolved to attend the funeral in a body. A committee of twelve members of the department removed the corpse from the Lindell hotel, where Mr. Gurley died, and accompanied it to the residence of Major Elderkin, in South Pueblo, from which the funeral took place. At three P.M., the funeral procession left South Pueblo, the committee of the fire department acting as pall bearers. On the arrival of the procession at the lower end of Santa Fe avenue, the fire department and members of the Pueblo county bar joined the cortege, the members of the bar taking their places as pall bearers, and the firemen joining their several companies. The procession then proceeded to the Presbyterian church, marching to the solemn music of a funeral dirge played by the fire department cornet band. On arriving at the church the casket containing the corpse was placed in front of the altar, and an address appropriate to the occasion was delivered by Rev. Isaac Monfort, who, we learn, was an old friend of Mr. Gurley's family. At the close of the address the body was again placed in the hearse and the funeral cortege moved to the cemetery. The scene there was exceedingly solemn. The slanting rays of an autumnal sunset, such a sunset as Colorado alone can boast of, shone upon a large concourse of sorrowing friends, and fell with peculiar effect upon the gay equipments of the firemen, covered with the emblems of mourning; the sad music of the band, and the solemn voice of the officiating minister, (Rev. Mr. Tompkins) as he read the impressive burial service of the Episcopal church, together combined to produce an impression which will long be remembered by those who were present on the occasion. On Friday morning a meeting of the members of the Pueblo county bar was held at the office of Messrs. Thatcher & Gast, Chief Justice Hallet, in the chair, and Mr. Charles E. Gast, acting as secretary. After appropriate remarks by several members of the bar, the following resolutions were adopted: Whereas, God, in his inscrutable providence, has called from life our companion and brother, H. M. Gurley. Death has again invaded our ranks; it laid its chilling hand, not upon one ripe in age and honors, but upon one of the youngest of our bar. Endowed with more than ordinary physical vigor, full of life, hope, ambition and promise, we reasonably believed that H. M. Gurley would live long and be useful in his day and generation. But God has decreed otherwise; “the silver cord has been loosed,” the voice of our friend has been hushed in death, and his hopes and ambitions are buried with him. We, as his companions and co-workers in the same profession, deem it meet and proper that we should give some expression of our appreciation of his manly qualities of heart and mind, and our sympathy for those who are bound to him by even stronger ties. Wherefore, be it Resolved, That in the death of H. M. Gurley, the bar of Pueblo has suffered an irreparable loss, and while we mourn his untimely death, we will tenderly throw the mantle of charity over his frailties, love his memory and cherish his virtues. Resolved, That to his family in this great bereavement, we tender our warmest sympathy, and commend them to the tender mercy and consolations of Him “who doeth all things well.” Resolved, That the Daily Chieftain and Washington papers be requested to publish these proceedings, and that copies of the same be furnished his family. Moses Hallett, C. J., Chairman, Chas. E. Gast, Secretary. The death of Mr. Gurley will leave a gap in Pueblo that will not soon be filled. Endowed with social qualities which tended to make him a welcome visitor in any circle, and with talents of no mean order, it will be long before another will be found to take his place. We shall miss his hearty ringing laugh, his manly, cordial shake of the hand, and his inimitable stories. Cut off in the vigor of youth and apparently in the full enjoyment of every thing worth living for, his sudden death is a warning to those who remain, to be always ready. Peace to his ashes. Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – October 9, 1875 – While attending Mr. Gurley's funeral yesterday, Rev. Mr. Monfort and Rev. Mr. Tompkins were thrown out of a buggy in which they were riding by a vicious horse which they were driving taking fright and running away. The vehicle was considerably damaged but the occupants fortunately escaped unhurt. Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – October 9, 1875 – Mrs. Elderkin requests us to state that if the person who took her brother's (Mr. H. M. Gurley) watch and chain during his illness will return the locket attached thereto, nothing will be said with reference to the remainder of the articles.

Guthrie, Madeline Estella
Madeline Estella Gordon Wood Guthrie – Collbran Plateau Voice – November 29, 1918 – Mrs. Madeline E. Guthrie – Word was received last Saturday from Pueblo that Mrs. N. F. Guthrie had died in a hospital in that city. Several months ago Mrs. Guthrie's health became very poor, and her illness so affected her mind that it was thought best to send her to the hospital for the insane at Pueblo. She never regained her health, grew steadily worse, in fact, and the end came on the 23rd of November. The body was shipped to this place for burial, and the funeral and interment was at the Eagalite Cemetery, Tuesday, November 26th, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Rev. James F. Walker conducted the short funeral service. Madeline Estella Gordon was born at Rawlow, Missouri, August 25, 1871, making her age at the time of her death 47 years, two months and 29 days. She was left an orphan at an early age, through the death of both her parents. When a young woman she came to Colorado to visit an old school friend, and was married at Trinidad, when 19 years of age, to Percy O. Wood. To this union were born four children, a son and three daughters. Two of these, now Mrs. John Stites Jr., and Mrs. Zach Bryant, both of Collbran, survive their mother. Mr. Wood died in 1895, and in 1899 Mrs. Wood was married to N. F. Guthrie who survives her, and now is living at Delco, Idaho. Mr. and Mrs. Guthrie and children came to this place in 1901, and until recently the family home was near Collbran. Until her last illness, Mrs. Guthrie was deeply attached to her daughters and the community sympathizes with them in the loss of their mother.
