Holbrook, Henry Randolph
Henry Randolph Holbrook – Pueblo Chieftain – December 22, 1907 – Died, Saturday, December 21, 1907, Henry Randolph Holbrook, age 69 years. The remains are at McCarthy's. The funeral will be held from the First Presbyterian church Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The Rev. J. L. Weaver will conduct the services. Interment will be in the family lot in Roselawn. Pueblo Chieftain – December 22, 1907 – Colonel H. R. Holbrook, Pioneer and Capitalist Joins Great Majority – Aged Man Fails to Recover From a Stroke of Paralysis – Was One of Pueblo's Foremost Citizens and Did Much For Upbuilding of the West – Col. Henry Randolph Holbrook, pioneer settler and financier, died at St. Mary's hospital yesterday afternoon at 2:15 age 69 years. Death resulted from a stroke of paralysis with which he was seized at an early hour last Monday morning and from which he failed to rally. The only living relative whom he appeared to cherish, Miss Edith M. Holbrook-Latham, a niece and his adopted daughter, was at his bedside when the end came, having made a record-breaking trip from the east in order to gratify his last wish that she might be with him until the last. Col. Holbrook was a director of the Mercantile National bank, president and owner of the Lagunda canal, the largest irrigation system in this section of the west, and owner of much valuable city property. He was associated in a business way with the late General Reno, General Palmer of Colorado Springs, Judge Thatcher and many others, all of whom were great factors in the upbuilding of the state. The funeral has been set for next Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock and the services will be held in the First Presbyterian church, Rev. Weaver officiating. Col. Holbrook was born at Columbia, Tolland county, Mass. [Connecticut], sixty-nine years ago, November 22. His parents were of old New England stock and his relatives held high positions in a military way and in affairs of state during the Revolution, the Mexican war and the War of 1812. He received the best school education obtainable in those days and at an early age took up school teaching as a means of livelihood. While he taught school but a short time he made valuable use of his time and made a thorough study of mathematics being considered a civil engineer of rare ability, practically without instruction. He then left for the west where history was beginning to shape itself and where every move of forces meant a change in the map of civilization. It was while he was struggling for life in the western wilds that he penned the following quotation to his family in the east which since has become famous: “Fortune as yet has not smiled upon me, but I am expecting her to laugh outright, shortly.” Served Through the Civil War. He served through the Civil war with great credit to himself, being promoted rapidly and as a result of his rapid rise came into close touch with Generals Reno and Palmer. A company of negro soldiers which had been assigned him as an escort won his great admiration and one of the few photographs in which he ever consented to appear was posed in their midst. At the conclusion of the war he again headed westward where his services as an engineer were even more in demand. He was one of the founders of Holbrook, Arizona, which in late years has prospered and which will forever bear his name. From there he went to Denver where he remained for some little time, but paid Pueblo the compliment of his investments, declaring that this city had by far the greater natural advantages and that it would eventually be the greatest city in the state and the first manufacturing city between the Missouri river and the coast. He became known at once, not only for his ability as a practical civil engineer but as one who cared to undertake and push to successful conclusions institutions of great magnitude, all of which survived the crisis of 1892-93. Is Founder of Bank. He was a founder of the American National bank which during the panic became hard pushed for money. It became a question as to whether the depositors or the stockholders should loose and Holbrook insisted on protecting the depositors. The bank remained solvent at the cost to the stockholders of twice the total value of their stock and later consolidated with the Stockgrowers' National to make the present Mercantile National bank. In Pueblo and throughout the country he will be remembered in an endearing manner by hundreds of warm friends to whom his eccentricities of character formed one of his strongest forts. His ideals were high, his tastes of the simplest and his loyalty to the west knew practically no bounds. He was always present at popular meetings where moral standing and sterling worth were requisites and was always a worthy advocate of justice. Because of modesty he never spoke of the canal other than as “The Lagunda,” although it has become known throughout the country as the “Holbrook canal,” while the surrounding plains for miles have long been called by no name other than the Holbrook country. His simplicity of nature often was the cause of remarks and he always referred to his own private holdings as our land or our canal, forgetting at all times the use of the first person singular in his conversation. Many of his former business associates in the upbuilding of the city, among whom are Dr. Thoombs, Judge Thatcher, Col. McDonnell and Governor Eaton, already have crossed the great divide and but few of the really early settlers still remain. Miss Latham Summoned. He is survived by three sisters and a brother who are scattered throughout the east and of whom has heard or seen little since his boyhood. He never married. One sister, Nellie E. Holbrook, upon her death, was brought to Pueblo fourteen years ago and interred in Roselawn. He has several nephews and one niece, Miss Latham, whom he adopted as his own daughter some time ago. They have been practically inseparable even since Miss Latham was a child and she made her home with him here while not attending school or traveling. Miss Latham is a graduate of the University of Chicago and a student of several European colleges. She has received a really liberal education, having encircled the globe, all of which Colonel Holbrook always mentioned with the greatest pride. He was never contented while not in the presence of his daughter-niece and as a last request ordered that she be summoned by wire when he realized that he had not long to live. Miss Latham reached Pueblo Friday, one day before he passed away and comforted him during his last hours. She had intended to return to Pueblo upon the recovery of her health which had been poor and Colonel Holbrook had declared that he would dispose of all his business interests and that they would live quietly in this city. He was found last Monday morning, however, lying upon the floor of his office, Main and Sixth streets, in an unconscious condition. It is not known how long he had suffered from the stroke before he was found and a physician who was summoned ordered his removal to St. Mary's hospital. He failed to regain consciousness for several days and it was realized that he was approaching the end. Pueblo Chieftain – December 22, 1907 – Col. Holbrook Well Known in Rocky Ford – Special to the Chieftain – Rocky Ford, Dec. 21 – Colonel Holbrook, whose death occurred in Pueblo today, is widely known here for his large land and ditch interests. It was through his enterprise in building the Holbrook canal north of the Arkansas River that made it possible to irrigate thousands of acres of land and made homes for hundreds of people who have prospered under the Holbrook ditch. W. N. Randall, who met his death by the accidental discharge of a revolver early in September, was a nephew of Mr. Holbrook. Mrs. W. N. Randall and G. P. Randall were with their uncle when he died. The Norwich Bulletin (Norwich, Connecticut), December 24, 1907 – Obituary – Henry R. Holbrook – The Bulletin's Columbia correspondent writes: News of the death of Henry R. Holbrook of Pueblo, Colorado, was received in Columbia Saturday afternoon. He was found in an unconscious condition in his room at 11:30 Monday. A physician was called and it was found that he was suffering from a stroke of paralysis and was in a serious condition. He was taken to St. Mary's hospital, but did not regain consciousness and died on Saturday. A Self-Made Man – Henry Randolph Holbrook was born in Columbia November 22, 1838, the son of Nathan K. and Jane Porter Holbrook. He received his early education in the district schools of his native town, and while yet in his teens, was employed as a teacher in the district schools in that vicinity. At 19 he left his home to battle with the world; for some time he was engaged in selling maps, a popular as well as profitable employment at that period, traveling through Connecticut, Massachusetts and other states. In the meantime he attended Monson academy where he studied surveying. His travels brought him eventually to Missouri where for a short period he was engaged in agricultural pursuits and afterward in surveying. When the civil war broke out in 1861 he left Missouri and came back to his old home in Columbia, where he remained about a year. During this time he attended a term of “Select School,” paying special attention to higher mathematics and geology. Surveyed for Union Pacific – In 1862 he joined a party of civil engineers and surveyors, under General Palmer of New York, engaged in the survey of the Union Pacific railroad. The task was not an easy one – the west of that period was not the west of today. The party had to fight its way, the work being often obstructed by Indians and bushwhackers. At times an escort of soldiers was necessary to protect them in their work. There were thousands of buffalo on the plains, and in writing to a friend, Mr. Holbrook spoke of having buffalo meat and potatoes for breakfast, dinner and supper. From this time he engaged in civil engineering, and became one of the most skilful (skillful) engineers in the west, surveying some of the most difficult routes and constructing bridges over what seemed almost impossible places. Work in Mexico – He also surveyed a railway line in Mexico. The lines he surveyed and the bridges he planned, stand as monuments to his ability and achievements as an engineer. His work as an engineer afforded him an excellent opportunity to judge of the future, in regard to various places on the lines which he surveyed and his interests eventually centered around Pueblo, which he believed was destined to become a city of importance. He made Pueblo his home and grew up with the city, and saw his hopes realized, and at the time of his death was one of the oldest, foremost as wealthiest of its citizens, and was called the “Pueblo Pioneer.” Gift of Land – He was the owner of a large foundry in Pueblo, and a director of the Mercantile National bank of that city. Several years ago he presented the city a $10,000 tract of land for a hospital site. His last great engineering work was the construction of Laguna canal, better known as the Holbrook ditch, for irrigation purposes. This canal is 20 feet wide on the bottom, and has a depth of seven feet, is 25 miles long. Commencing at the north bank of the Arkansas River (near Catlin, Colorado) and running in a northwesterly direction through Otero County, covering a large area between the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, and the Missouri Pacific railway. Cost $100,000 – This was his own enterprise which he successfully planned and carried out at an expense of one hundred thousand dollars. His nephew, the late William N. Randall of Rocky Ford, Colorado was associated with him in the construction and management of the canal. But few men starting out in life as he did accomplished as much for the general good and upbuilding of the country. Pueblo will miss him, but the work he accomplished in the west will perpetuate his memory. He is survived by a brother and three sisters, Daniel Holbrook and Mrs. John Randall of Columbia, Mrs. Hollis Avery of Pennsylvania and Mrs. Alfred W. Hutchinson of Gilead. Rocky Ford Tribune, Rocky Ford, Colorado, December 27, 1907 – Death of a Pioneer – Man Who Promoted the Holbrook Canal and Helped to Develop the Valley Passes to His Reward – Col. Henry Randolph Holbrook, one of the pioneers of the Arkansas Valley and prominently identified with the development of irrigation in this section, died Saturday afternoon at St. Mary's hospital in Pueblo. On the Monday previous he suffered a stroke of apoplexy and he never entirely recovered consciousness. At the time of his death there were with him his niece, Miss Ethel Holbrook Latham, and G. P. Randall, of this city, who was Mr. Holbrook's nephew. Mr. Holbrook was sixty-nine years old last month and for thirty years had been a resident of Pueblo. He was born in Columbia, Conn., and was of English extraction. Raised on a typical New England farm, he early turned his talents to civil engineering, and in the days of the civil war came west to Missouri, finding employment with the Santa Fe railroad. To him was given the important duty of locating the route for the new railroad which was at that time projecting its lines westward and in this capacity he came to Colorado. It was while in the employ of the Santa Fe that he foresaw the wonderful agricultural possibilities of the valley and conceived the idea of organizing a company to build an irrigation ditch on the north side of the river. Thus the germ of the great Lake canal, commonly known as the Holbrook, which irrigates a large tract of land north of here, had its being. After he completed his work with the Santa Fe he associated with him in his project his nephew, the late William N. Randall, and began the construction of the ditch. This canal has its headgate a short distance this side of Manzanola and waters thousands of acres. In speaking of his death, Sunday's Star-Journal devotes over two columns to its account, from which we make extracts as follows: “Mr. Holbrook was extremely charitable, although his benefactions were given in a quiet and unobtrusive manner, which was characteristic of the man, as he was reticent and silent to a degree, although warm hearted and generous. Many of the local charities, notably the Pueblo hospital, will miss his kindly aid, and he was never appealed to in behalf of a worthy object but what he gave, and gave freely. His early education had not been received at any great colleges, but rather in the hard school of experience, but he was naturally studious and was an unusually well read and cultured man. In appearance he was of medium build, rugged and sturdy, and showed the healthy effects of his long outdoor life. His hair was almost white, and he wore a heavy mustache, which set off his strong face in admirable fashion. He was not affiliated with any secret society, but he was a member of the Pueblo club and of the State Engineering society, which has its headquarters in Denver. A rather sad feature of the last few months of his life was the untimely death of his favorite nephew, the young man whom he had brought to the west to superintend the great canal. Last September, William Randall, this nephew, a resident of Rocky Ford, when just about to go for a journey, accidentally shot and killed himself. This tragedy bore heavily on Mr. Holbrook's mind, as he was intensely fond of his nephew, and some of his friends state that it may be regarded as the remote cause of his recent seizure. Mr. Holbrook comes from a remarkably long-lived family, his father having died some years ago at an advanced age, and his mother more recently, at over 90 years. The old Holbrook homestead at Columbia, Conn., just on the outskirts of the city of Hartford, is still in the hands of the Holbrook family, and there his father and mother lived and died, and there a brother and sister, Mrs. Mary Randall, mother of the lately deceased nephew, still make their home. Mr. Holbrook also leaves another sister, who resides with her husband on a farm near Dayton, Ohio. He is survived also by a niece, Miss Edith Latham, of this city, with whose family Mr. Holbrook formerly boarded. Miss Latham was recalled from Liberty, N. Y., by the news of her uncle's serious condition, and arrived in this city but a few days ago. She is somewhat delicate and was at the sanitarium of Dr. Lomis, the famous specialist, in the New York town. He also leaves a nephew, Gelon Randall, a brother of William Randall, who is a business man at Rocky Ford. His parents were among the founders of Harvard and Yale colleges, and it has always been Mr. Holbrook's intention to see that his adopted daughter received the proper education. Many tales are told of Mr. Holbrook's generosity at all times and his fair dealing in business. When he sold some land recently, he could have procured $15 per acre more than he actually received, but declined the advanced price, stating that the sum for which he sold it was all that the land was worth. His life was peculiarly clean and open, and the taint of scandal never so much as touched him during his long and varied career. While he had few close friends, these were staunch, and his death is probably more sincerely regretted than that of any one who has departed this life in this city in a long time. Colonel Holbrook, while not a member of any denomination, took for his creed the golden rule, and those who have known him longest refer to his unblemished character and stainless reputation as the best evidence that he treated others as he would have them treat him.”

Her first job after graduation was working for the Mennonite Children's Home in Kansas City, Kan., and a school for the blind, also of Kansas City. These two jobs created in her heart a desire to serve people in need which was preparatory to entering nurse's training in La Junta, Colo., in 1937. Three years later she graduated from the Mennonite Hospital School of Nursing with an RN degree. During her nursing career her patients expressed their appreciation for her loving and conscientious care she gave them. Two years after her nurse's training, she married. The things she learned in training were adapted and practiced in the care of her family. She continued to supplement the family income both with private duty and hospital nursing. When she saw the family progress was slow she volunteered to work full-time to put her husband through the last two years of college. During that time she contacted her lung illness which plagued her for the rest of her life. A graveside service will be held 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 30, 2000, at Fairview Cemetery in La Junta.

H. R. Hollingsbery - Akron Weekly Pioneer Press - October 16, 1914 - Three Die In Wreck - Twenty-Ton Rock Demolishes Train At Grand Junction - Fourteen Others Seriously Hurt When Boulder Smashes Two Cars on Rio Grande Road. Western Newspaper Union News Service - Grand Junction. - Three persons were killed and fourteen others seriously injured when a twenty-ton boulder crashed 100 feet into the day coach and smoker of westbound passenger train No. 3, eighteen miles east of this city. The heavy missile is believed to have been loosened from the cliff by frost. It was preceded by a smaller boulder which struck the coupling between the tender and smoker, parting the train. Automatic air brakes brought the separated section to a stop. A moment later the massive rock was catapulted upon the smoker and day coach. The two cars, despite their all-steel construction, were crushed to bits. The dead: H. R. Hollingsbery, Pueblo, traveling salesman; Thomas C. Linkens, Grand Junction, branch manager Ridenour Baker Grocery Company; Harry Braddock, Chicago. The seriously injured: Ralph Arthur Cox, marine recruit, Boulder, en route to San Francisco, head gashed, left leg crushed, rib fractured, hands bruised; Adna Bratingham, Alliance, Ohio, badly bruised and nervous shock; Emmett Abbott, Sacramento, left ear torn off, severe bruises; Mrs. Stella Maynard, Fruita, Colo., forehead gashed; Audrey Harrington, her daughter, scalp lacerated; W. E. Lewis, Roberts, Idaho, severe bruises; Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Black, Atkinson, Ill., arms bruised, nervous shock, minor injuries; Richard Mackay, Alhambra, Cal., left arm and wrist bruised; D. F.

Selinger, Salida, hip and head bruised. Railroad men are unable to explain how the other occupants of the car escaped with their lives. Despite the destruction of the two cars, at least twenty men, women and children escaped practically unhurt. At the point where the wreck occurred, the tracks closely parallel the Grand River and cliffs, from which the huge boulder fell, rise sheer hundreds of feet above the river bank. Much of the wreckage of the two cars was plunged into the swift mountain stream.

Holly, Hiram S.
Captain Hiram S. Holly - Pueblo Chieftain - May 28, 1895 - Captain Hiram S. Holly of Otero County, who died in this city early yesterday morning as announced in yesterday's Chieftain was one of the most prominent stockmen in Colorado in the paling day of the cattle business. His great "SS" ranch at Holly in Bent County brought him $875,000 when he sold it, and at the time of his death he was still largely interested in cattle, being one of the heaviest owners in the Columbia Company. He was born in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, July 13, 1843, where he attended school and worked on a farm until he was 15 years of age.  In the 28th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry he was discharged and went to New York City where he remained a short time.  At the end of which he was employed in the quartermasters department for one year. After a short visit home, he came to Colorado.  He left the cars at St. Joseph, Missouri, then the terminus of railroads in the west and came by boat to Nebraska City and then with the ox teams up the Platte River Valley. He found employment in Colorado at North Empire as engineer in a quartz mill.  For six months he took charge of it for others and then ran it for himself.  During this time he had men out prospecting.  In 1868, he started for Arizona with the intention of mining, but remained only a brief time as the Indians were very troublesome. He then went to Gilpin County and was mining in Nevada Gulch until 1870 when he went to Black Hawk to continue mining and milling which he did until the spring of 1871.  He then abandoned this business and sought other fields of employment. Unable to find in Colorado such a herd as he wanted, he went to Texas and bought a bunch of 1300 head of mixed cattle and drove them to his "SS" Ranch which had a frontage of 30 miles on the Arkansas and the same of Sand Creek. In 1881 his herd numbered not far from 15,000. After selling his "SS" Ranch Capt. Holly removed to that part of Bent County that is now Otero and located some 6 miles east of Rocky Ford, where his home continued to be until his death.  He came to Pueblo a short time since for medical waters and treatment for stomach troubles which caused his death. The funeral will occur at 3 o'clock this afternoon from the First Methodist Church under the auspices of the Masons, of which body he was a member.  His family consisting of Mrs. Holly, 3 sons and 3 daughters will all be present. One of his sons was attending the state university at Boulder and the others were at his home near La Junta.  Quite a large number are expected from La Junta to attend the funeral.  Charles A. Reynolds, treasurer of Otero County, was in the city yesterday making the arrangements for the funeral.

Holman, Helen
Helen Holman - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - September 13, 1984 - Toole 'Confesses' in Pueblo Area Murder - Ottis Toole has said he murdered a woman near Pueblo in 1974, the same year he says he killed a Colorado Springs massage-parlor operator, authorities said Wednesday. Pueblo District Attorney Gus Sandstrom said he is skeptical of the "confession" and has decided not to file charges against Toole. No one has ever been charged in the death. Toole is an admitted mass murderer who is in custody in Jacksonville, Fla. Meanwhile, officials in Oklahoma, where the woman's body was found, are now studying the evidence to determine whether they have a criminal case. Pueblo Sheriff's Detective Joe Antonio, who heads the major-crimes team, said Toole first confessed in November to killing Helen Holman of Trinidad. He repeated his story in January and February, when Antonio and another officer reinterviewed him, Antonio said. The 31-year-old woman was en route with her husband in separate vehicles from Trinidad to Pueblo when she disappeared on Oct. 21, 1974. Her car was found at a rest stop off Interstate 25, 16 miles south of Pueblo. On Oct. 29, her body, with three bullet wounds to the head, was found in a field off U. S. 287, just across the Oklahoma state line. Antonio and Sandstrom said Toole, who also has confessed to the Sept. 19, 1974, murder of Colorado Springs massage-parlor owner Sun Ok Cousin, for which Park Estep has been imprisoned, had some of the details on the Pueblo-area slaying right. But "there were inconsistencies in his story," Antonio said. Antonio said Toole told him he abducted the woman from a rest stop or campground. He also was able to accurately describe the make of car she drove, the type of bullets (.38 caliber) and the area of the body into which the bullets were fired, her hair color and approximate age. "But he was way off on the roads he said he took to Oklahoma and the time it took to get there," Antonio said. "He said the scenery consisted of plateaus and made no mention of mountains. He seemed to know something about Denver, describing the gold-tipped capitol dome. "But he said he was living in California at the time and our investigation showed he was staying with his mother in Jacksonville. "He had a vague description of clothing that was not useful." On the basis of the information authorities had, Sandstrom said he did not believe he had a case that would hold up in court. "I am skeptical that he did this," Sandstrom said. "In my opinion he gave us absolutely nothing except his say so that he had been in Pueblo or Colorado Springs." Jerry Weis, assistant district attorney for Cimarron County, Okla., said he expected to see and hear the "confession," which is on videotape, within the week. "Right now I don't know what we've got. After I see the evidence I will make a decision fairly quickly on whether to file charges against Toole," Weis said. Cimarron County Sheriff Bob White said he had seen evidence and was going through it again before presenting it to the district attorney. He would not comment on his opinion of it. Jim Franklin, the assistant chief deputy district attorney for the 4th Judicial District, said Wednesday he has read Tool's "confession" to Ms. Cousin's murder, but added: "The information we have at this moment indicates we have the correct person incarcerated." He said he has not heard yet from two officers representing the sheriff's office and Colorado Springs Police Department who went to Jacksonville to interview Toole about his statement.
