McGee, Catherine
Catherine McGee – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – September 18, 1873 – Fatal and Distressing Accident – Late last Saturday night Mrs. Catherine McGee, mother of the wife of Mr. Nat Kearny, a worthy citizen of the western portion of the city, met with a fearful accident that resulted fatally. She fell down a stairway and died from the injury in a few hours. The deceased was a native of Ireland, for many years a resident of Scotland, and had been twenty-four years in this country and about one year, in Pueblo. This sudden and violent taking away of this venerable lady, who had passed through so many of the storms and so much of the sunshine of this life, was extremely distressing to the family, and their grief was unconsolable. They have, however, the sincere sympathy of many friends in this hour of deep affliction, and the far off friends of the deceased, while they must grieve for loss of the loved one, can have the consolation that her last hours were spent with loving relatives and friends. The services were conducted Sunday evening by the Rev. Mr. Green, of the Episcopal Church, and were peculiarly and beautifully impressing.

He was en route to Denver to confer with officials of the company. He formerly lived here and spent half a day with his parents and six brothers. Saturday morning he left, saying he was going to take an early train to Denver. Instead, he went to a hotel, engaged a room, and after writing three letters to his mother and wife, it is evident that he placed the revolver against his left breast and pulled the trigger. He leaves a widow and two children at Maitland. McGill was considered a most promising young man, who had made good with the corporation by which he was employed. His father is John McGill, 829 South Union avenue. The family expresses the greatest surprise that their son and brother could have been in financial straits, as it was known that he was making a good salary, and he was thought to have been living carefully and making the most of his opportunities. During the afternoon the mail man delivered a letter to Mrs. McGill, the mother. To her surprise, it was from her son, signed “Ernest,” and she was informed in a few words that he desired to be buried in a certain black suit which he had left at home. He closed with, “I wrote Lucille, and insist that she use just as little as possible in putting me away, as she will need all that she can save.” In his letter to his wife, McGill said: “I want you to kiss me on the lips and tell me that you still love me, and that you forgive me all the suffering I have caused my poor wife and children. I am not leaving your [sic] anything but the insurance and some stock, and this is my greatest regret. I owe the company more than I am worth.” Another line says: “My dear wife, how many times I have wished I had taken your advice and behaved myself, for I know now that you really love me. I love you better than I do my own life.”

McGonigal, Joe
Joe McGonigal (a.k.a. M'Gonnigal, McGonigle) – Joseph McGonigal -Telluride Daily Journal - June 2, 1922 - Two Murdered When Jealous Suitor Shoots - Mine Watchman Kills His Rival in Home of the Girl - Uses a Shot Gun - Girl Flees but Her Head Is Blown Off by Pursuer - Trinidad, Colo., June 2 - Ella Centers, aged 25, and Wilbur Ferguson were foully murdered here last night by Joseph McGonigal, a jealous suitor. Miss Centers, the daughter of the boarding house keeper at the Royal mine, was in her home last night with Ferguson, who was writing a letter. McGonigal, a watchman at the Jewel mine, entered the house and shot Ferguson, who died immediately. The Centers girl fled, but was pursued by McGonigal who blew her head off with a shot gun. It is believed that the shooting took place over the hand of Miss Centers. Ferguson, of Saco, Maine, and a student in the School of Mines, was a temporary watchman at the Royal mine and boarded at the Centers' home. Miss Centers accepted the attentions of Ferguson and this made McGonigal furiously jealous and the double killing resulted. Immediately after the shooting McGonigal was arrested. It was found that he had a bullet wound in his foot, but this wound is believed to have been self-inflicted. Golden Colorado Transcript - June 8, 1922 - Popular Mines Student Murdered at Coal Camp - Wilbur Ferguson, prominent athlete and one of the most popular students of the School of Mines, was shot and instantly killed at Aguilar last Thursday by Joe McGonigal, a watchman. The shooting occurred in the dining room of the mine boarding house where Ferguson was sitting at a table writing. J. C. Williams, master of the Golden Masonic lodge, of which order Ferguson was a member, made a trip to Aguilar last Saturday to get the correct information concerning the murder, and found that the shooting of young Ferguson was a cold blooded affair and without provocation. On Thursday morning Ferguson was in the dining room writing a letter to his mother. McGonigal suddenly entered the room, carrying a sawed-off shotgun. He ordered Ferguson to get out of the house. Ferguson looked up from his writing, but made no move to arise from his chair, and with that McGonigal drew down on him with the gun and fired. The charge of buckshot entered Ferguson's chest. When McGonigal first entered the dining room, Ella Centers, daughter of the boarding house keeper, and with whom McGonigal was infatuated, was at work in a pantry adjoining the dining room. Another girl was with her. Just before the shot was fired the Centers girl rushed into the room, apparently with the idea of preventing the shooting. When Ferguson fell the girl rushed out of the house and into a deep arroyo, McGonigal running after her. McGonigal ran along the edge of the gulch and finally got just above the girl. She fell on her knees and pleaded with him to spare her life, but, taking slow and deliberate aim at her, he fired, killing the girl instantly. Several men working on a bridge nearby were witnesses to this killing. After shooting the girl, McGonigal fled to his own room in the boarding house and fired several shots from a revolver into his hat brim. He then sent a bullet into his foot and went into the room where Ferguson was lying. He placed the revolver about (?) Ferguson and then threw himself on the floor, pretending to be unconscious. State rangers entered the house and found the killer in that position. He was yanked to his feet, and the only thing he would say when questioned as to his motive in killing Ferguson and the girl was "Dead men tell no tales." Ferguson's right hand still grasped the fountain pen with which he had been writing, showing that there had been no fight. McGonigal had been known in the coal camp for some time as an all around bad man. The coroner's jury brought in a verdict Saturday to the effect that the killing was premeditated and felonious. Young Ferguson left Golden soon after school closed to take a job as watchman at the Royal mine at Aguilar, planning in this way to earn money to aid him in completing his college course. The Royal mine is owned by the National Fuel Company and officers of that company told Mr. Williams Sunday that Ferguson had so impressed them that a much better position was being prepared for him. Ferguson was one of the most popular men in the School of Mines, and was a favorite with students, faculty members and townspeople in general and his untimely death has brought great sorrow to this community. During the war Ferguson enlisted in Maine and served overseas in a machine gun company. After returning from France he came to Golden and entered the School of Mines as a freshman. He became a general favorite at once, and was elected president of the freshman class. He took a prominent part in athletics and all student activities and last fall was one of the mainstays of the Mines football team. He had been elected president of next year's junior class. He was a member of the Masonic order and of the local chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Ferguson, live in Saco, Maine, and he also leaves one brother. The body was taken to Denver and services were held at the Olinger mortuary yesterday morning, being attended by many lodge and fraternity brothers of the deceased, as well as many other friends. The remains have been shipped to the home in Maine for interment.Colorado Public Defender - April 26, 1924 - Joe McGonigal (a.k.a. M'Gonnigal, McGonigle), Trinidad (Las Animas County). W-W. Hanging. McGonigal was convicted of murdering Wilbur N. Ferguson, a student at the Colorado School of Mines, and Ella Centers, the daughter of the owner of a rooming house where both Ferguson and McGonigal lived. McGonigal, forty-two, worked as a watchman at a mine, and at one time had been prominent in the affairs of the United Mine Workers. He shot Ferguson inside the house, and Centers fled in terror. McGonigal chased her and killed her with a shotgun as she pleaded for her life. Several nearby workmen witnessed the murder. McGonigal then returned to the house and, apparently to create a self-defense claim, shot himself in the foot, which later had to be amputated. The state alleged that the McGonigal committed the murders while drunk and that he was jealous of the personal relationship between Ferguson and Centers. McGonigal's sole defense was insanity, although he only proffered jail prisoners, and no experts, to support that claim. In contrast, three psychiatrists testified that the defendant was sane. On appeal, the defense attorney failed to file an abstract of the record and brief. The court reprimanded the attorney and cited him for contempt, but permitted him to continue on the case. The conviction was later affirmed, and after the governor granted a one-month stay of execution to evaluate McGonigal's sanity, he was hanged with the “old water type” gallows.

McGowan, John J.
John J. McGowan – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – October 16, 1911 – Around the City As Seen By Our Reporters on Their Daily Rounds – From the Herald Democrat and the Evening Chronicle – From Monday's Daily – The death of John J. McGowan at the county hospital Saturday marks the passing of ____ _____ ____ ___ ___ ____ _______ characters that have made the pages of the history of this camp good reading. Among these characters is the man who just missed joining a company that “struck it rich;” the man who did “strike it” and spent it all; the man who sold a claim for a pittance and afterward saw others get rich. All these characters Leadville boasts of. Some of them are still living. But John J. McGowan was different from all of them. His life story does not tell of how he missed getting rich or how he was once rich. He was never rich, and he never had any prospects of getting rich. The peculiar note of McGowan's song of life was that he was always GOING to get rich. His mining “deals” consisted of one long series of organizations of paper companies. More often, though, he did not take the trouble to describe the property on paper. Most of the corporations that he organized were but the figments of his vivid imagination. He was an organizer who never organized anything. And yet his castles in Spain brought him some revenue. They at least kept him out of the county hospital for a number of years. McGowan had the faculty of being able to transform his fairy mining schemes into good substantial boarding house fare. In this respect he was superior to most dreamers who got nothing for their dreams but a pile of rags in a garret and a diet of bread and water. A glance at McGowan's method in cashing his dreams might be helpful to that class of persons who concern themselves with the architecture of air castles. McGowan kept (a) close tab on the boarding houses of Leadville. He had boarded at most of them for a year or more, and he always paid his bills. He never failed to do that when the landlady became anxious and asked him about a settlement. McGowan believed in paying up; that was one of the rules of his life. So when the landlady spoke to McGowan he would take out a fountain pen and say: “My dear madam, you are not aware, I take it, that I am interested in the organization of a mining company of which I am to be chief stockholder and president.” As a rule the landlady would reply that she was not aware of anything of that sort. Then McGowan, who all the time had been waving the pen importantly, would turn to the pad of paper on the table and write a few words in a fine flourishing hand that made the landlady think he surely must be a president of some sort. He would then hand the woman a statement to the effect that he owed her such and such an amount and that he would pay it to her in the stock of such and such a company. Then McGowan would hunt a new boarding place and pay the landlady her bill in “stocks.” After a time the landladies of Leadville had got all the stocks they needed in this life, and McGowan lost his credit. So he began to watch for new places to open up where he might introduce himself and leave a promise of his stocks. It had got to a point where he couldn't get a meal at the places where there was no lead of introducing himself. That is how the old dreamer cashed his dreams. It shows a certain amount of ingenuity and uniqueness. The average dreamer starves to death with a hundred schemes in his head and nothing in his stomach. But McGowan was an extraordinary dreamer; he knew how to get his board, if not his fortunes, from his wildcat schemes. In this way McGowan stepped around the expediency of begging or receiving charity. That was the point on which he was ____. He took offense at the offer of a “helping hand.” He had been an expert bookkeeper in his day, and had earned a good salary in the employ of the Clatlin (?) Company of New York. Very likely, it was the memory of his former vocation (?) and the knowledge of his ability that kept him from begging or receiving alms. He finally had to give up the struggle to side-step charity and go to the county hospital. By the time that he went he was so broken in health and so weak that it is likely that he had not enough spirit left to care whether he was paying board with imaginary stocks or living on the charity of the county. He kept a diary and set down punctiously (?) the state of the weather each day, the success he had in securing a loan and the menu for breakfast. One or two excerpts from the diary gives the keynote to the latter part of his life that was spent in effecting “loans” in preference to accepting alms and of boarding on the strength of his “stocks” in preference to becoming a beggar. “May 16 – Heard today that ---- made a good strike in silver. Must see him about a loan.” “June 3 – Got a loan of five from ---- today. Food is good. Must begin to think on paying board.” “June 5 – Got ½ pint from ---- today. Had oatmeal for breakfast.” “July 18 – Consulted Madam ---- today. She told of my past, present and future. Said I would get a paper in a few days. Would be rich.” McGowan knew the geology of Leadville thoroughly and located many claims. He had brains and imagination. He could conceive great things, but he lacked the “something” that is necessary to make dreams realities. He could have outlined on paper any of the great schemes that have materialized in this camp and are now paying propositions. But McGowan was not the man to execute what he planned. That he was an imaginative genius without being a practical one is shown by the remark that people make of him now that he is dead. “He was one of the 'millionaires' of Leadville, but his millions were in his mind.” So they were “all in his mind,” but with a little executive talent in his make-up they might have been in his pocket. Note: The quality of this article was very poor. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – October 30, 1911 – Around the City As Seen By Our Reporters on Their Daily Rounds – From the Herald Democrat and the Evening Chronicle – From Monday's Daily – M'Gowan's Son-In-Law Heard From – Word was received last week by Coroner O'Malia from the son-in-law of John J. McGowan, who died over a week ago in Leadville. After an attempt to locate the family of the deceased in Pueblo it was found that H. S. Payne, the son-in-law, had moved to Los Angeles, Cal. He has made arrangements for the funeral which will be held some time this week. In a letter found, among the possessions of the late McGowan, from Mr. Payne, it appears that McGowan's daughter knew nothing of the indigent circumstances of her father, and it is likely that old John J. with all his pride took pains to keep his people in Pueblo ignorant of the fact that he had one foot in the county hospital and that it was a question of but a few months when the other would go in. The letter confirms the opinion advanced by many of McGowan's friends and acquaintances that the old “mine promoter” was extraordinarily sensitive on the subject of his financial distress. It appears from the letter that Mr. Payne was at the time of writing holding a good position as chief clerk to the master mechanic of the Denver and Rio Grande shops in Pueblo. In the letter he assumes that McGowan is a prosperous mining man. Judging from what is known of McGowan's character it seems probable that McGowan himself conveyed this impression. It was of the peculiar traits of his mind to pose as a well-to-do promoter of a mining scheme of vast proportions. If he carried this air of prosperity among his acquaintances it is all the more probable that he would carry it in his communications with his relatives. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – October 30, 1911 – Around the City As Seen By Our Reporters on Their Daily Rounds – From the Herald Democrat and the Evening Chronicle – From Friday's Daily – Funeral of the Late J. J. McGowan – The funeral of the late John J. McGowan was held yesterday from the chapel of Moynahan and O'Malia's undertaking parlors. The remains were interred in Evergreen cemetery. The pallbearers were: Dan Healy, Sam McGowan, Hugh Duffy, William Martin, Robert Walsh and John Kearney.

McGrath, Daisy Kate
Daisy Kate “Kay” McGrath - Pueblo Chieftain - March 31, 2003 - Daisy Kate “Kay” McGrath Kay McGrath passed away peacefully at home on March 29, 2003, after a prolonged illness. Born Daisy Kate Waite on Feb. 28, 1920, in Bristol, England, to William Whitley and Florence Morris Waite, she matriculated (her words) from the Hugh Sexey School. As a young woman, she survived the German blitz during WWII and married her husband Neill B. McGrath M.D. on Oct. 3, 1945. She immigrated to the United States as a GI bride in 1946 arriving on a Liberty Ship in New York City. She and her husband, Neill, first lived in Lamar, Colo., before he moved to a medical practice in Michigan and later in Florence, Colo. They lived briefly in Denver before moving to Pueblo in 1965 for the remainder of their lives. Her husband, Neill, predeceased her on July 31, 1987. Surviving her are two children and their spouses; Elaine and John Sartoris of Beulah, Colo., and Brian and Susan McGrath of Boise, Idaho. There are also five grandsons, Peter Sartoris, Neill McGrath, Christopher McGrath, Colin McGrath, and Tristan McGrath. She is also survived by two sisters, Violet (Jack) Young of Bristol, England, and Heather Braam of Capetown, South Africa; her brother, Leslie (Barbara) Waite of Bristol, England; and brother-in-law, Rev. Owen Butler of Taunton, England; as well as many nieces and nephews. Kay McGrath was particularly proud of being both American and English - she never renounced her English citizenship and friends will remember that, tongue-in-cheek, she sometimes flew the Union Jack on July 4th. The person she most admired, Winston Churchill, was also half-English and half-American. She greatly enjoyed the Colorado mountains and wildlife, particularly feeding hummingbirds, collecting mushrooms, and bird and bear watching. She was a person of great good humor and probing and broad intellect. One of her favorite pastimes was provocative discussions and friendly arguments with her children and grandchildren. In fact, she liked to argue that in her opinion the best things about America, the Plymouth Colony, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Episcopal Church were the intellectual creations of dissident Englishmen. She was a loving and proud grandmother and was always an interesting and stimulating companion and teacher to her grandsons. Kay was a member of many organizations, the PEO chapter CI, the Cuerna Verde Association, the Wednesday Morning Book Club, Dow Jones Investment Club, longtime member of Ascension Episcopal Church (Altar Guild and Rector's Guild). She also volunteered in many organizations to improve Pueblo such as the Broadway Theatre League, KTSC-PBS, and the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center. Friends will remember that she was an avid tennis player, a nature lover and particularly fond of Airedales. Kay will be greatly missed by family and friends. Kay's family wants to express their deepest appreciation for the kindness and wonderful gestures of friendship from all her friends, the very caring and professional people from Sangre de Cristo Hospice, and the love and spiritual support from the clergy at Ascension Church. At her request, there will be no viewing. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Memorial Service will be held 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 1, 2003, at the Ascension Episcopal Church, 18th and Grand, with the Rev. Dr. Ephraim Radneo officiating.

McGrath, Ella C.
Ella C. McGrath - Westland News - August 14, 1919 - In Memory; Life's race was well run, Life's work well done, Life's crown well won, Now comes rest. Ella C. McGrath was born in Lacon, Illinois, September 15, 1878. She attended public school there until her family moved to Colorado in 1887, settling at Towner. She continued her education at Towner and Pueblo. Later she went to San Francisco and entered a business college. After completing this course, she was employed in the office of the T. J. Morgan Plumbing Co., later going to El Paso, Texas, with that firm and worked for them until the fall of 1909, when she returned to her girlhood home at Towner. Here she was employed by the Towner Mercantile Company and later by W. H. Mayne. She took an interest in her work and her employer's welfare became her own. She was appointed postmistress in February 1915, and here as well as in other work, the desire to improve the service became an absorbing interest. No one can fill her place. She gave her life freely that she might lighten the burden of others. The body was frail for so great a task. She was never strong and on August 2 she passed to the Great Beyond., She was buried in Roselawn Cemetery at Pueblo. The writer knew Ella McGrath many years and has never known a more beautiful, helpful and unselfish life. Though frail in body, she was strong in the spirit of love. She never counted the cost to herself but was ever thoughtful of others and anxious to help them. Her young life touched those with whom she came in contact and all are better because of her influence. In sickness and sorrow, after a long and tiresome day, her hand helped, her voice and her smile cheered. Ellas' life did not belong to her home or her family alone, but to the community in which she lived. Her passing is a personal loss. She will be missed by all who knew her. No word of reproach or of slight is over spoken of her; there is no memory of her except of loving administrations. She left the richest bequest that can be given to the world, a radiant, spotless example, which will live and vibrate throughout the ages. There is no death! The stars go down, To rise upon some fairer shore; And brighten Heaven's jeweled crown; They shine forevermore. And ever near us, though unseen, The dear immortal spirits tread; For all the boundless universe Is Life; There are no dead.
