Their bodies have been recovered, being found badly burned. It is supposed that a small pocket of gas was struck which was ignited from the lamp of a miner.

Miller, J. C.
John Clayton Miller - Pueblo Chieftain - August 8, 1915 - Prominent Druggist Dies While Working in Store; Successful Businessman J. C. Miller Stricken with Heart Failure and Succumbs Despite Heroic Efforts Made to Revive Him - Lived Here 15 Years - Stricken with heart failure while at work in his drug store in the Central block yesterday, John Clayton Miller, 46 years old, expired almost instantly yesterday afternoon at 1 o'clock, despite the heroic measure resorted to in the effort to revive the flickering spark of life. The funeral will be held at 12:15 p.m. today at the McCarthy chapel. Rev. F. A. Hatch, officiating. Miss Charlotte Betts will sing. The Knight Templars will escort the body to the depot where a Masonic service will be held and the body will be forwarded to Louisville, Ky., at 2:15 o'clock. Mr. Miller was one of the city's most prominent druggists. He has been engaged in the business here for fifteen years with considerable success. Since his arrival here with his brother-in-law, H. E. Bennett, he has been in business in the Central block stand. They purchased the store from Dr. Harvey. About two years ago Mr. Bennett sold his interest and the Miller-Jones Drug company was organized. This company at the time of its dissolution a short time ago owned three of the city's best drug stores, the Central block store, the Thatcher block store and the Depot Drug store. Under the dissolution agreement, Mr. Miller remained proprietor of the Central block store and soon thereafter he took in with him as a partner, Judson Hohl. Mr. Miller left his home, 2117 Grand avenue, yesterday morning feeling in normal health. He has been suffering from heart trouble for some time but previous attacks had not been considered serious by him. While in the act of compounding a prescription he was seized with the attack and staggering fell to the floor. Dr. Luke McLean had just entered the store and hurried to the druggist's assistance. Dr. H. B. Killough also was summoned. Immediately a pulmotor which is kept in the store for emergency cases was applied to the stricken man. However, his heart was so weak that it did not respond either to the pulmotor or restoratives which were administered by the physicians and in a few moments he was declared dead. The physicians pronounced the cause as leakage of the heart, a form of apoplexy or blood clot of the heart. Mr. Miller is survived by his wife and a 3-year-old adopted child whom Mr. and Mrs. Miller brought with them from Paducah, Ky., a year ago. He also leaves a brother, F. D. Miller of Hazel, Ky. The deceased was born in Mayfield, Ky.

James Miller – Colorado Public Defender – February 2, 1877 - West Las Animas (Bent County). B-W. Hanging/Strangulation. Miller's execution was the first in Colorado after the territory achieved statehood. Miller, a twenty-three-year-old “mulatto,” had served as a soldier with the United States Colored Troops for the previous five years. He entered a dance hall which was reserved for whites that night, and an inebriated white customer forced him at gunpoint to leave. Another white customer, John Sutherland, told the thug to leave Miller alone. Miller and a friend, Benjamin Smith, later returned and randomly shot into the bar, missing the thug but killing Sutherland. Both men received death sentences; the governor commuted Smith's sentence. At the hanging, which the governor delayed two weeks so Miller could join a church and be married, the trapdoor would not open at first, and when it did, it fell to the ground. Miller dropped through the opening in the platform, but the rope was too long and his feet came to rest on the trap door that had fallen below him. The trap door was quickly removed so Miller could swing unimpeded. He hung for twenty-five minutes before expiring. Later, the sheriff, distraught over the bungled hanging, resigned his position and left the community.
James Miller - Walsenburg World - November 21, 1901 - Bad Accident - A serious accident occurred at Bowen last evening that resulted in the death of a colored man named Harper and the probable fatal injury of an old gentleman named James Miller, a miner. The accident occurred on the 1,800 foot tramway. Miller was walking down the tram and was near the bottom when he was struck by a car that had gotten away from its moorings above. Harper _______ when it struck the bottom. Mr. Miller is at the hospital suffering from injuries which it is thought will prove fatal. His right leg was cut off, his left arm broken and skull fractured. He is 56 years of age and was living with a son at Bowen. His wife is in Illinois. We could learn nothing about Harper except that he was employed at the mine. The accident was caused by the breaking of a rope which held the cars before they were started down the tramway, which is very steep, a 56 percent grade. The coroner will investigate who was responsible. Trinidad Advertiser.

John Miller - Wray Rattler - January 22, 1914 - Found With Skull Crushed - John Miller, 55, as Pueblo Farmer, was Victim of an Assassin - Killed with a Hammer - Murderer Did Not Take His Money; Corpse Found by Visitor - Pueblo – With his skull fractured, the body of John Miller, 55 years old, a farmer, living 15 miles west of Pueblo, was found in his home by a neighbor, Joseph Davis, The wound on the back of the man's head causes the sheriff to believe that the man was murdered, and he is conducting an exhaustive investigation. Among Miller's effects, in his home, where he lived alone, were found an uncashed check for $175.00 derived from the sale of a consignment of sugar beets, and some money, indicating that the motive that prompted his killing was not that of robbery. Bloodstains in the house indicated that Miller was struck, possible with a hammer, while standing near the door. He had endeavored to crawl across the room to a bed but had become unconscious before he reached it and died on the floor a few feet away. Davis went to see Miller on business, and entering the house, found his friend lying upon the floor, dead.The coroner has taken charge of the body. Miller had no relatives living in this part of the country but leaves a brother residing in Illinois. Pueblo Indicator – January 24, 1914 – Man Murdered at Vineland – John Miller, a farmer living near Vineland, was found murdered in his house last Tuesday morning. He had but recently received payment for his sugar beet crop and the theory was advanced that he was killed for his money, but such was not the case, as a check for $170 was found in his pocket. Investigation by the sheriff's office thus far fails to uncover any clue leading to the identity of the perpetrators of the horrible deed, and Coroner Patterson summoned a jury to sit on the case. A bloody club was found in the house, showing that it was murder and not suicide that caused the victim's death.

Joseph Miller - Akron Weekly Pioneer Press – October 14, 1892 – A Wreck on the Santa Fe Road. Three Train Men Killed. On the Track Caused a Catastrophe Near Eden. The Santa Fe local freight train No. 46, engine No. 443, running between Pueblo and Colorado Springs, was wrecked near Eden at 12:20 o'clock Sunday morning. Three men were killed, or are supposed to be dead, as their bodies are under the wreckage. They are the engineer, fireman and the head brakeman. Eight cars and the engine are piled in one mass at the side of the track, and coal and freight of every description are scattered broadcast. The men killed are Joseph Miller, engineer; C. C. McCune, fireman, and Archie Buchanan, head brakeman. The wreck was first discovered by the trainmen of the Rio Grande passenger train which passes this place at 12:15. The two roads at this point run almost parallel with each other. The wreck was immediately reported to Colorado Springs and the superintendent and dispatcher at Pueblo proceeded to the scene. The conductor and the brakeman who was unhurt went, one in each direction, to flag approaching trains, and their comrades were left in the ruins that others might be protected. It was found that the wreck was caused by the engine striking a cow. The wrecking of the engine, tender and cars was complete and the track was torn up. The three men were evidently killed instantly, and their bodies were badly crushed.

Paul Miller - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - November 3, 1961 - Four Die in Plane Crash Near Pueblo - Flying into a blinding snowstorm, four men crashed to their deaths in a light plane Thursday 17 miles southeast of Pueblo. The fast-moving storm cleared within a few hours to reveal the wreckage on the Butler Ranch. Another airman, Glenn L. Nash, spotted the shattered remains on a flight from Pueblo to Raton, N.M. Those killed were Carlyle C. Madson, 50, the pilot, and Henry J. Pannell, Jr., 30 both of San Diego, Calif.; Paul Miller, 38 (?), La Mesa, Calif., and Vernon L. Parrish, 32, Denver. Parrish headed an electronics firm with offices in Denver, Albuquerque and Salt Lake City. The others all were employes of a San Diego firm. First on the scene, according to Maj. Lawrence H. Reibscheid, information officer of Group III, Civil Air Patrol, were three CAP officers and two deputy sheriffs of Pueblo County. They arrived on the scene at about 4:30 p.m. The searchers were Lt. Col. W. A. Coe of Black Forest, deputy communications officer of the Colorado Wing CAP; 1st Lt. Joseph Girodano and 1st Lt. Elvina Smith of the Pueblo County (?) CAP, and deputy sheriffs Theodore Nickolett and M. C. Forester. The search was directed by Lt. Col. Herbert E. Hammond of Colorado Springs, commanding officer of Group III. Operations officer was Maj. Earl Cole of Manitou Springs, also of Group III. The wreckage was scattered over a quarter mile area of the flat prairie land north of the Huerfano River, Hammond said. The largest piece of wreckage could be put in the back of a pickup truck. One body was in the nose wreckage. Two others were 80 feet ahead of where the plane struck the ground. The fourth body was at the point of impact. Controllers at the Pueblo airport said the plane, bound from Denver to Albuquerque, N.M., radioed at 10:43 a.m. that it was returning to Pueblo after running into the blizzard. Efforts to communicate with the plane failed. Workmen on the Butler Ranch said they heard the roar of a plane, apparently at full throttle, about 10:45 a.m. but heard no crash. The plane did not burn. It dug a furrow about 8 inches deep before disintegrating. Sheriff officers said it appeared the plane struck in a pancake fashion. Reibscheid said that since Feb. 4 of this year, the CAP has participated in more than 25 search and rescue missions of this type.
