Charles Morris – Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – August 2, 1872 – The past week has been one of bloodshed, outrage and murder at Cimarron. The ball first opened with an outbreak among the military, which resulted in a German soldier being pommeled within an inch of his life at the hands of three of his comrades. The excitement caused by this had hardly died away when Charles Morris, a well known resident of Cimarron, was shot dead by a man from Red River masquerading under the sobriquet of "Chuck". The murderer surrendered himself to the sheriff, and an examination was held before Justice Rhinehart, who acquitted the prisoner on the ground of justifiable homicide. During this trial the court, prisoner and all adjourned to take a drink. We agree with the Cimarron News that this "reads grotesque to those at a distance but is not so to those who dwell there".

Mr. Morrison - Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain - February 13, 1879 - Death On the Trail. To a person who has never crossed the snowy range in the winter time it is next to impossible to convey an idea of the perils encountered by those who have to traverse the narrow, steep and treacherous trails in some of the mountain passes. Snow slides are of frequent occurrence especially in the early winter before the snow which falls very rapidly has become packed. A very slight jar or agitation will sometimes start an avalanche of several acres. The last victim we have heard of was Mr. Joseph Sellars, the faithful carrier who carries the mail from Silverton to Barber's ranch. The trail crosses the range at Cunningham gulch, and it is a dangerous road even in the summer time. He was coming east a week ago last Thursday and at Deep creek, a locality about one mile beyond Grassy Hill station, he was caught in a slide and carried down into a deep ravine and buried several feet under the snow. Mr. W. D. Watson, the keeper of Grassy Hill station, and several others exerted themselves to recover the body but did not succeed till the Monday following in finding him. The above particulars are gleaned from the Del Norte Prospector, and yesterday we learned from C. L. Weinberg that two other citizens of Silverton perished at the same time. One of them is named Morrison and the other Fred Gardner, a young lawyer formerly of Pueblo, and well known to many of our citizens. The mail had not been recovered at last accounts.

Dr. F. Morrow – Aspen Weekly Chronicle – January 6, 1890 – Pueblo, Colo., Jan. 2. – The body of Dr. F. Morrow, of Arlington, Colorado, was found this morning in the Arkansas River, opposite the North Side smelter. Missouri Pacific switchmen have seen the body for several days past, but supposed it was a log. The head was frozen in a mass of ice. The feet were also frozen in ice, and it was with difficulty that the body could be got out. The man had not been robbed, as there was found on his person $21, and other papers. He was last seen alive at 5:30, Dec. 28, when he started to the depot to take the 6:30 train. He did not take the train, and no one knows where he went. A bruise over the right eye looked as if he had been struck with some blunt instrument, though if the man had fallen from one of the bridges upon slag at the edge of the river it might have made the same kind of wound. Morrow was about 52 years old, and leaves a wife, who is living here. Morrow was holding a land claim at Arlington, and was local physician of the Missouri Pacific railway at that point. He was in Pueblo on a spree last month. He had formerly lived at Canon City and other places in Colorado, having been in this part of the country nineteen years. Morrow was an old Grand Army man and organizer of the Union Veterans.
