John Griffin, 12, who was riding with Mauller when the accident happened is in serious condition at Graves Hospital in Canon City, Tony Moschetti, 55 is also in the hospital badly injured, while Mrs. Tony Moschetti is recovering at home from severe scalp lacerations. The accident happened when Mauller was returning home from a trip to Rainbow Park to buy eggs for his mother. He was driving along Third street toward Florence, and in the dusk, as his car came over a rise in the road, failed to see the stalled truck until too late to avoid striking it. Moschetti was attempting to crank the truck when it was struck, and Mrs. Moschetti was seated in the cab of the truck. The impact of the collision knocked the truck forward crushing Moschetti to the ground, and knocking Mrs. Moschetti down. The two boys in the car were crushed and torn by the terrific impact.

Ambulances were summoned from Florence and the injured were brought into town for medical aid. Little John Griffith, unconscious, was first taken to his home, but was later removed to Graves hospital. Moschetti was rushed directly to Graves hospital in Canon City. Mrs. Moschetti was taken to her home and a physician summoned to care for her. The body of John Mauller, who was dead when doctors and ambulances arrived, was taken to a local mortuary. Coroner C.H. Graves, Sr., of Canon City investigated the accident, and ordered an inquest, which will be held at the Holt chapel at 3:30 or 4 o'clock this afternoon. The truck was badly damaged and the Mauller roadster was completely demolished by the force of the collision.

Reports from Graves hospital early this afternoon indicate that both of the injured are better and will recover. Little John Griffith is still in a dazed condition, but has partially regained consciousness. He has not as yet been told of his friend's death. He is suffering from a broken right ankle, face lacerations, and a possible slight brain concussion, Moschetti is suffering from a broken pelvic bone, a broken hip and cuts and bruises about the face. He too is better this afternoon, and while he will be bedfast for several months as a result of the accident, attending doctors do not regard his condition as critical.

Maxwell, Lucian B.
Lucian B. Maxwell - Colorado Daily Chieftain - August 3, 1875 - Death Of L.B. Maxwell - Lucian B. Maxwell, well known as one of the pioneers of Southern Colorado and New Mexico, died at his residence at Fort Sumner, San Miguel county, New Mexico, on the 16th of July after a long illness. Of him the Cimarron News and Press said: “The deceased had long been prominent in our territorial history, was widely known, and was universally respected and publicly esteemed. His intimate connection with the fortunes and progress of this section of the country where his destiny was cast, and through a period of nearly forty years, --embracing the most pregnant and stirring events preceding and following the memorable war between the government of the United States and the republic of Mexico, --his patriotic acts rendered to his country, his self sacrifices at the time, his subsequent forecast, enterprise, energy, and constantly bestowed noble charities, --all cannot but consecrate the man with almost a sacredness of regard in the remembrance of the unprejudiced, the appreciative, and the grateful among our people. The compeer and associate of St. Vrain, of Carson, of the Bents, of Hatcher, of Jones, of Wooten, of Williams, and a host of early pioneers so well known to and highly estimated by the public – a sharer with them in all the varied experiences of mountaineer life that make a story alone of fearless adventure and perilous daring, and ultimately a success of (at the time) a wild and inhospitable region, his was the deserving merit to endear himself to the popular heart, and even irrespective of race, to win common and universal approbation and respect. Mr. Maxwell was born in the town of Kaskaskia, state of Illinois. When quite a mere child, however, he was removed to St. Genevieve, Missouri, in which later state he is supposed by many to have had his nativity. When about seventeen years of age, in company with the late Kit Carson, he came with Col. Ceran St. Vrain, William, Charles and George Bent, -- the former of the Bents subsequently provisional governor of New Mexico, and murdered in the Taos revolution of 1847, and all now likewise no more, -- to this territory. They were all for some years at the “Old Bent Fort” on the Arkansas river, where the then young Carson and Maxwell, as the regular hunters for that famous trading post, in frequent adventures with surrounding war-like Indian tribes, greatly distinguished themselves, in fact, laid the basis of an afterward national reputation. Their subsequent career as pioneer trappers, and explorers of the before unknown Rocky Mountain ranges – in excursions even to the Pacific slopes, especially as guide to Col. Fremont on the latter's first expedition as pathfinder – are familiar to every reader. Mr. Maxwell left Taos, long his previous place of residence, in 1847, and at the time of the revolution mentioned, and settled at Cimarron. In this place he lived a number of years, improving and beautifying his well known ranch, and contributing to the development of the great mineral wealth and other valuable resources of the Maxwell grant. His sale to the English company of this grant, some few years ago, is also too fresh in the minds of many to require comment. After the sale of this grant, however, he purchased from the government the site of Fort Sumner, then an abandoned military post, and where he has since resided with his family up to the time of his decease. About the year 1848, he intermarried with a daughter of the late Judge Beaubien, of Taos, an affectionate wife and most estimable lady. He leaves several children. He was about 57 years of age at the time of his death. Possessed of large wealth – at one time called the Croesus of the west with a generous heart, liberal disposition, and knowing naught but all kindly sympathies – truly will his friends mourn his loss.

Leo was very active in sports - enjoying baseball, fishing, bowling and most of all golf and especially enjoyed taking an active part in the sports his sons participated in while growing up. Once he could no longer swing a golf club, you could still find him at the Walsenburg Club House playing cards with “the rummy bunch.” Leo loved Walsenburg and considered it a good place to raise his and Sue's children whom he affectionately called “our tribe of Israel.” He was actively involved in his community serving on various city boards and giving 12 years of service as mayor of Walsenburg. He was active in St. Mary's Parish and school, serving as the Grand Knight in the Knights of Columbus. Leo was known for his wit and sense of humor, and those memories will bring smiles and warmness for years to come to the faces and hearts of those who dearly love him. He leaves to cherish his memory, his wife of 63 years, Susie Maes; six sons, Dennis (Donna), Norman, Ed (Elaine), Leo Jr., (Debra), Ken (Kendra) and Robert (Veronica); five daughters, Leona (Dennis) Kendall), Bernadette (George) Langbein), Lori (Stephen King), Dee (Mario Sandoval) and LaVerne Wilaby.

Maynard, J. S. (Mrs.)
Mrs. J. S. Maynard - Colorado Daily Chieftain - September 16, 1875 - Mrs. Maynard, wife of Captain J. S. Maynard, says the Tribune, committed suicide at the Grand Central Hotel yesterday by taking strychnine. She died about twelve o'clock, though the evidence goes to show that she took the poison about seven. She was attacked by the usual symptoms of strychnine poisoning soon afterwards, and Dr. Williams, her family physician, was sent for. Mrs. Maynard asked him if he could keep a secret. He answered affirmatively and she then told him she had swallowed the poison. She said she had taken as much as would lie on a five cent piece, and told him that it was useless to make an effort to save her. Other physicians were, however, sent for and every effort was made to relieve her. But all the aid that could be had was of no avail, and she died without leaving any explanation of her conduct. A letter directed to her husband was found under her pillow, and it is quite probable that this will throw some light upon the subject. Captain Maynard left last Wednesday for a place about twenty miles distant from Pueblo, and was consequently absent yesterday. He was telegraphed to and a messenger sent from Pueblo with the dispatch, but no reply had been received up to twelve o'clock last night. Captain Maynard is a stock dealer, and is well known here. Mrs. Maynard was about forty years old and leaves no children.

Mazzone, Carolina
Carolina Mazzone – Walsenburg World – March 17, 1922 – Mrs. Carolina Mazzone Dies – Died at Walsenburg, Colo., Wednesday, March 15, 1922, Mrs. Caroline Mazzone of pneumonia. The death of Mrs. Mazzone was very unexpected by the people of the city and by the family itself. Mrs. Mazzone was stricken with the flu which developed into pneumonia, from which she died after only a very short illness. Mrs. Mazzone was born March 18, 1859, and was 62 years, 11 months, and 17 days of age at the time of her death. Funeral services will be at the Catholic Church at 10 a.m., Saturday morning. Walsenburg World – March 21, 1922 – Funeral of Mrs. Carolina Mazzone – The funeral of Mrs. Carolina Mazzone was held at the Catholic Church Sunday morning at 10 a.m. The body was carried from the house to the church thru the ranks of the altar society of which body she was a member. The pall bearers were William Drier, John J. Pritchard, Ernest Krier, John Neilson, Charles Agnes, and Frank Mauro. At the church solemn high mass was held, and Father Licciotti told of the Christian virtues of the deceased in a few, well chosen words. Father Licciotti's remarks were as follows. Eulogy – Let peace come, let him rest in his bed that hath walked in his uprightness. – Isiah 57:2 My Dear Friends: There are occasions in our life when even the expression of sympathy appears to be an intrusion. There is a feeling of sorrow so very deep that even out of pity one thinks better leave the condolence alone. I experience this feeling now, dear friends, when I see sorrowing children and their widowed father gathered round the bier of their beloved mother and wife. Their grief appears too sacred, too intimate and mental to be disturbed. But for the sake of many friends of the family I see 'round me, I feel I must say a few words of sympathy, were it only as a last tribute of respect to one who commanded it so deservedly during life. “Let peace come, let him rest in his bed that hath walked in his uprightness.” These prophetical words contain a very comforting promise for all those who walk in this life the path of justice, of righteousness. A beautiful inheritance and a great reward is in store for them. This promise has been fulfilled in this dear departed mother and wife whose earthly remains are before us. She belonged to those who have walked in their uprightness and who strayed not to the way of evil and perdition. In all her life she was never known otherwise than walking in the justice, love and fear of God. She fulfilled conscientiously and faithfully all her duties, all the demands of her vocation and life. In her home life she distinguished herself by that true love that is ever ready to bring sacrifices; sincere and honest, simple and modest, she was industrious in the care of her family. To her husband and children she was a model of virtue, ever ready with advice and help, ever near to them with her pious prayers. For their sake she would have wished to stay longer with them, but she was used to the will of God in everything during her life, so in the last she submitted herself to the decree of God setting the limit to her life; the hour of parting came and of tears. The mother's place is vacant in the home, but she has an enduring place in the hearts of her grateful children and husband who will never forget her. Our departed friend was a very good Christian, very good catholic (article cut off). Carolina Largosimo - Walsenburg World – March 21, 1922 – Carolina Largosimo was born in Genoa, Italy, March 18, 1859.
