Neave, R. E.
R. E. Neave – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – December 18, 1873 – We are called upon to record another murder to the list of crimes. This time it comes from Wet Mountain Valley, about a mile and a half from Ula. The murdered man was Mr. R. E. Neave, president of the cheese factory company. The place of the murder was at Mr. Neave's own house. The murderer is a man by name of T. Price. This man Price went into the Valley in September last, and he has generally been looked upon as a future partner of Mr. Neave, rather than employee. He was a hard looking man, and intemperate. On this occasion Mr. Neave had been chiding Price for his drinking and sundry bad habits. Mr. Neave started out of the room for some reason or other, when Price called him back, and with a dirk stabbed him just under the left nipple. The knife undoubtedly entered his heart, for he died in less than five minutes. Mr. Neaves' housekeeper and several neighbors were present. Mr. Neave was a man of wealth, and highly respected. He was generous to a fault. He has no relatives in this country, being the only member of a large family of royal standing in England who is away from home.

Nelson, John
John Nelson – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – January 7, 1918 – John Nelson – Tributes to one of the most adept practical mining men in the district as well as one of the most respected, were paid by friends who formed an unusually large congregation when funeral services were held yesterday afternoon at 2 for the late John Nelson, late manager of the Mikado lease, whose advice and predictions led to opening of one of the best mining prospects in the Mikado territory. The services were held at the family home, 509 (?) East Third street, to which the mining man's body was brot Monday morning by his children, Robert and Miss Edith, after his death at Pueblo Saturday night last. The house was not large enough to accommodate but a portion of the congregation. Many friends stood in the street and some, seeing the crowded condition inside the house, remained in their carriages during the services, attending later the services at the grave in the Elks' Rest. The casket was buried in flowers, tributes from the family, the Elks and Eagles lodges, of which Mr. Nelson was an esteemed life member, his mining associates and scores of other friends. There were so many of these that they had to be taken to the cemetery later in a special sleigh. Funeral rites were conducted by the Elks lodge at the home and the graveside, in addition to the church services for which the Rev. Leroy Ellis of the Baptist church officiated. Two hymns, “Abide With Me” and “Meet Me There,” the latter in the Swedish language reminiscent of Mr. Nelson's birthplace in Sweden, were sung by the Swedish Lutheran church choir, with Mrs. Albert Peterson playing the organ accompaniment. Singers in this choir were Mr. and Mrs. Fred Moosberg, Irene Bonthron, Charles Nordberg, Mrs. John Lundberg and Hjalmar Graff. John McSweeny, Chaplain Samuel Thomas, S. E. Abbott, W. A. S. Parker and John F. Quinn were the officiating Elks who conducted the lodge rites. At the end of the services, the cortege of carriages and sleighs which started from the house to convey attending friends to the Elks' Rest extended over three blocks as it drove down Third street and north on Harrison avenue. The Elks attending, a large delegation of Eagles and the choir led the procession in the carriages. Mr. Nelson was laid at rest beside the grave of his wife, who died six years ago. The pall bearers represented mining and lodge associates. They were John Harvey, George O. Argall, W. M. Harvey, George W. Casey, Chris Anderson and William Pearson. The Elks and the Rev. Ellis led committal rites at the graveside, and the choir sung “My Life is a Wave” in Swedish. To mining men who knew Mr. Nelson's ability as a practical mine manager and the great interest he took in mining affairs, to his two children and his friends who liked him for his sociable, helpful spirit, his death at the age of 52 years seemed only untimely – far too soon. It followed a long sickness of a year of miner's consumption, for which there was no hope of recovery tho everything possible was done to effect it. Thru thirty years of experience in the district, Mr. Nelson had acquired an extensive knowledge of the mining industry of Leadville. He was foreman at the Mikado in 1896 and at the Penrose in 1901. In 1903 he began employment as superintendent of the Bassick mine at Silver Cliff. He engaged extensively in leasing also, especially on the Gold Basin and at the Mikado in 1909. It was thru his experience at the Mikado that he gained acquaintance with the geology of the ground there and the formations that are now being opened up. He had wanted to re-open the old Mikado shaft, and it was said he was the first mining man to see the great possibilities of the lower ore zone of this property. He is also given credit for interesting the Iron Silver Mining company in undertaking its present project at the Mikado, which is now considered one of the most promising prospects in the entire district. After the Iron Silver company opened up this property, Mr. Nelson was retained as manager of the Mikado lease in which he was interested with George A. Argall, manager of the company, John Harvey and George W. Casey, well-known mining men, and others. He held this position until sickness forced him to retire last fall.

Nelson, O. F.
O. F. Nelson – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – October 21, 1912 – Colorado State News – Pueblo, Oct. 13. – O. F. Nelson, one of the best known newspaper men of the west, familiarly known to all readers of the Pueblo daily papers as “Mike the Duck” a nom de plume under which he entertained the public with bright humor, died today at his home in this city. Mr. Nelson was taken sick last winter with typhoid fever, from the effects of which he never recovered. Although in ill health he continued in the service following his discharge from the hospital until last Tuesday, when he was forced to take to his bed again. He recovered sufficiently to take a short walk this morning and on his return suffered a hemorrhage and died in a few minutes. The deceased was a close follower of baseball and was the official scorer for the western league teams in this city. The excitement incident to the opening game of the world's series is believed to have contributed to his death. His office was filled with men anxious to learn the score and the dense smoke from cigars brought on a coughing spell and that night he was taken sick again. Mr. Nelson was thirty-five years old. He was born in a small town in Illinois and began his newspaper career on the Joplin Globe. He came to Pueblo eight years ago and soon after became city editor. He maintained this position until a few weeks ago when on account of his health he accepted a similar position on the Star-Journal, an evening paper.
