Hoag, LeVert W.
LeVert W. Hoag - Pueblo Chieftain - March 14, 2000 - LeVert W. Hoag. Pueblo has lost a gracious and generous woman by the passing of philanthropist LeVert W. Hoag, who died on March 12, 2000, after a short illness. Mrs. Hoag was the wife of the late Pueblo Chieftain publisher Frank S. Hoag Jr. Mrs. Hoag came to Pueblo in 1935 as a bride, after meeting and marrying her husband in Washington, D.C., where he was working on the staff of syndicated newspaper columnist David Lawrence. Mrs. Hoag had never heard of Pueblo, but agreed to move west. She soon became involved in her new community. She served as chairman of the first Service League Follies in 1937, and was honorary chairman 50 years later for the 1987 Junior League Follies. She was active in the Single Fund, the forerunner of United Way, serving as chairman of the residential gifts campaign from 1956 through 1960, and in the Pueblo County Tuberculosis and Health Association. In 1967, she opened her Aberdeen home to the public for a Christmas homes tour that benefited the infant Pueblo County chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Mrs. Hoag served on the board of the Pueblo Civic Symphony, was part of the Broadway Theater League of Pueblo and was honorary chairman of the Pueblo Metropolitan Museum Volunteers twice in the early 70s. In the 1990s, she was an active supporter of El Pueblo Museum, hosting history-themed parties that raised funds for the museum. Mr. and Mrs. Hoag contributed generously to the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center Endowment Fund, making possible the completion of a four-year, $1 million drive. In honor of their generosity, the first floor studio gallery was renamed the Hoag Gallery. She was a dedicated supporter of the University of Southern Colorado and was honored in 1998 when a bronze bust of her likeness was unveiled at Hoag Hall at USC. In 1995, the LeVert W. Hoag Recreation Center was named for her; she had been the key financial contributor to the project. Mrs. Hoag was also a contributor to the Runyon Field Sports Complex. She was honored in 1996 by the Southern Colorado Press Club, along with Pueblo Chieftain Publisher Bob Rawlings, for her support of local baseball programs as well as her many other gifts to the Pueblo community. In December, Mrs. Hoag was inducted into the President's Circle at Pueblo Community College. Her late husband was instrumental in starting the school's predecessor, Pueblo Junior College, in the 1930s. Mrs. Hoag was preceded in death by her husband in 1989. She is survived by her dear friends, Bob Johnston Jr., and Adrian Comer; sister, Edwina Dickinson, Los Gatos, Calif.; her nephews, Bob (Sandy) Rawlings, Pueblo, Frank (Eleanor) Evans, Santa Fe, N.M., Jack (Anne) Rawlings, North Egremont, Mass., The Rev.

Captain W. P. Hobson - Pueblo Daily Chieftain - May 24, 1895 Captain W. P. Hobson is Dead Life Work of a prominent Puebloan Ended Another Old Resident Gone - A Public Spirited Citizen and a Well Known Civil Engineer Passes Peacefully Away at his Home Yesterday Morning - A Sketch of His Honorable Career Here and Elsewhere - Funeral Services Saturday - Captain William P. Hobson died at 11:45 o'clock yesterday morning at his home, 503 east Eleventh Street at the age of 60 years. He was born in Henry county, Indiana, September 16, 1834, and came to Colorado in 1878 and had made Pueblo his home ever since. Early in life he moved to Missouri locating in Andrew County. He was married at Savannah, Mo., September 23, 1855, to Miss Sarah S. Hale. Captain Hobson had an enviable war record, enlisting in G Company of the Twenty-Seventh Infantry regiment of Missouri and serving throughout the war. He was commissioned captain early in the service and was in the same company when the war closed and was mustered out in 1866. He contracted a complicated stomach trouble during the war and that was the cause of his death. Since June 1893 he had been confined to his home. He was a member of Upton post No. 8, Grand Army of the Republic, and the funeral which will be from the house Saturday at 10 a.m., will be under its auspices. The services will be conducted by Rev. Thomas Stephenson at the Grand Avenue Baptist church. During his residence in Colorado he had followed his profession, that of a civil engineer, and had conducted some of the most substantial improvements in the county. Hundreds of acres of land were made susceptible of cultivation by the building of the ditch which was projected by him. The ditch was taken out of the Fountain. Several other large ditches were built by him in the Arkansas valley and a number of reservoirs were projected. Captain Hobson had a plan for opening up the arid land which if it had been carried out would have been worth millions to the state. He was a public spirited citizen and when actively engaged in business gave both his time and money to anything for the furtherance of Pueblo's interests. His labors did a great deal of good and many of the present improvements in the city are due as much to his work as to anything else. During the real estate excitement in 1889 he took an active part and his lands northeast of the city were put in the market as an addition and the Fountain Lake hotel built in the center of the addition of that name. Mrs. Hobson and several sons and daughters survive him but unfortunately all of them were not with him at the time of his death. One daughter lives in Trinidad and two of his sons are in the east. Pueblo Daily Chieftain - Captain William P. Hobson, May 26, 1895 remains were quietly laid to rest in the North side cemetery yesterday morning beside those of his mother, who died some years ago. The funeral services at the house were conducted by Rev. Thomas Stephenson of the Grand Avenue Baptist church at 10 o'clock, and were very impressive. At the conclusion of the ceremony Upton post No. 8 of the G.A.R. took charge and the procession wended its way to the cemetery, where the usual G. A. R. burial was had, concluding with the sounding of taps by the bugler. Judge Andrew Royal, who served in Captain Hobson's company during the war made a few well chosen eulogistic remarks on his dead comrade. The pall-bearers were H. M. Morse, I. W. Stanton, I.V. Stamm, George Willauer, Charles W. Bowman and George Bell. The service were largely attended by the old residents of the city, which was a fitting tribute to the respect with which the deceased was held by the community, In addition to the preaching at the house Mrs. India Ward of B. F. Butler circle conducted the ceremony of laying the nation's flag on the breast of the dead soldier. Mr. Hobson's daughter arrived from Trinidad in time to attend the services, and a number of other relatives also gathered about the casket.

Maggie Hoel Durango Democrat December 25, 1900 Pueblo Kidnapping Eighteen-Year Old Girl Mysteriously Disappears Motive Not Yet Learned Richly Dressed Lady Seen in Vicinity Character of Girl Precludes Elopement Theory Pueblo, Colo., Dec. 24 Work of the police today failed to throw any light upon the mysterious disappearance of Maggie Hoel, who yesterday left or was taken from the home of her uncle, Charles Beaty, a short distance west of this city. It has, however, been learned that some time yesterday morning a carriage drawn by white horses was in the vicinity and a richly dressed lady got out of it and seemed to be searching for something. It has been impossible thus far to find such a carriage. The girl, who is eighteen years old, had a guardian in Missouri, and a young man here was her lover. The latter is grief-stricken and does all he can to aid in solving the mystery. The simple and innocent character of the girl seems to preclude the idea of elopement and all circumstances seem to indicate kidnapping, but for what motive, cannot yet be learned. Durango Democrat December 26, 1900 The Hoel Mystery Hunting For the Lady Who Called in the Carriage Young Lady Still Missing Richly Dressed Lady in Carriage Probably Implicated Various Theories Are Advanced No Clue as to Her Whereabouts Pueblo, Colo., Dec. 25 Maggie Hoel, who disappeared mysteriously three days ago, is still missing, and there are no clues of her whereabouts. The impression is growing that she left of her own accord; one theory is she fled to avoid fulfilling a marriage engagement set for two or three months ahead; another is that she has fallen into the hands of a proprietress of a bad house; in either case however, it does not seem that she would have gone without hat or wraps. There is a probability that the unknown well-dressed woman who was in that vicinity in a coach drawn by white horses the morning previous to her disappearance had some connection with the mystery, though the strange woman gave sharp and repelling replies to Miss Hoel when the girl inquired if she could assist her. The house is in a solitary place in the river bottoms, surrounded by thickets, and presence of a fine coach and richly dressed woman is something unusual. Aspen Tribune February 28, 1901 The body of Miss Maggie Hoel, who mysteriously disappeared from her home near Pueblo, on December 23, has been found in the Arkansas River five miles below where her relatives lived. Her right arm was shattered, and it is thought she was outraged, murdered and the body thrown in the river. Only recently her hat and other articles of wearing apparel were found on the bank of the river, near the Beatty home. The case is creating great excitement in Pueblo and vicinity. A searching investigation will be made into the causes leading to her death. Aspen Weekly Times March 9, 1901 No Arrests Made A recent dispatch from Pueblo concerning the disappearance of Miss Maggie Hoel, is as follows: Though the coroner's jury, which investigated the mysterious disappearance of Maggie Hoel from her home December 23, last, and the circumstances surrounding the discovery of her body day before yesterday, has brought in its verdict, the officers have as yet arrested no one who is even suspected of having even driven the girl to her death or murdered her. Fully twenty witnesses were heard by the jury today, and late this afternoon it brought in the following verdict: We, the jury, find from the evidence adduced that Maggie Hoel came to her death at the hands of some party or parties unknown. Shortly after the disappearance of the girl was first reported the police and the local newspapers vied with each other to see which one could first locate her or explain why she left home. All kinds of stories were published, and an interesting feature of the inquest was the testimony of several newspaper men, who were put on the stand to tell what they really knew of the circumstances of her disappearance. It was learned that their stories were in a large measure fiction, but derived from sources which they considered authentic. The police are particularly interested in one character spoken of by Mrs. Charles Beaty, a sister of the murdered girl. This character is a woman dressed in black, who is said to have been seen in the neighborhood of the Beaty residence the day of Maggie Hoel's disappearance. It is also alleged that James Stout, an employe of Baker's greenhouse, who frequently visited the girl, was married and had promised to secure a divorce in order that he might marry Maggie Hoel. Some think that this mysterious character might have been Stout's wife, and that she came here from Salt Lake on hearing of her husband's love for the girl and in a fit of jealousy killed the rival of her affection. Aspen Tribune March 7, 1901 A dispatch from the same source of the present mouth (?), reads as follows: Developments in the famous Maggie Hoel murder mystery today show that Sheriff Beaman is in receipt of a letter which states that the writer can furnish him with information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the murderer. News that the letter had been received was made public today, although the letter had been in the sheriff's possession for several days. He is in Denver tonight and when communicated with by telephone he refused to divulge the name of the author of the letter. Whether it is merely a fake or a clew, remains to be seen. Every means of learning the identity of the author of the awful crime will be exhausted by the police before the search is abandoned. New Castle Nonpareil March 6, 1901 The coroner's jury which investigated the mysterious disappearance of Maggie Hoel from her home at Pueblo, December 23rd last, and the circumstances surrounding the discovery of her body, brought in the following verdict: We, the jury, find from the evidence adduced that Maggie Hoel came to her death at the hands of some party or parties unknown.
