Nettleton, Edwin S.
Edwin S. Nettleton - Yuma Pioneer - April 26, 1901 - Death of Edwin S. Nettleton, Pioneer Colorado Engineer - Denver, Colo., April 23. - Edwin S. Nettleton, a pioneer engineer of the state, died of heart disease at eight o'clock last evening at the Homeopathic hospital, after an illness of two weeks. During the greater part of that time he persisted in going ahead with his business. He was irrigation expert in the investigations of the United States Department of Agriculture. Last Wednesday he was compelled to give up and was brought from Cheyenne to Denver by C. T. Johnson. Edwin S. Nettleton was born in Medina, Ohio, in 1832. His first study was engineering and when he grew up to manhood his first work was in the oil fields of Pennsylvania, which he knew thoroughly. Later he removed to Michigan, and while there heard of the Greeley colony, then being organized by N. C. Meeker. He became a member of the colony and laid out the city of Greeley. He at once turned his attention to irrigation engineering, building both of the colony's irrigating canals. He was also interested in the Fort Collins Land and Improvement Company, which laid out the town of Fort Collins. He laid out Colorado Springs, which was founded by a colony, and Manitou, and a part of Pueblo. He was in charge of the construction of the Larimer and Weld canal, now having one of the largest system of reservoirs in the West and also of what is known as the English ditch near Denver, built by the Duff Improvement Company. His connection with these enterprises gave him a national reputation, and for the last thirty years he has been the foremost irrigation engineer of the country. His services have been in request in all parts of the arid west. Mr. Nettleton was state engineer under Governors Grant and Eaton and was a member of the first state capitol commission. When the United States government began the investigation of irrigation, Mr. Nettleton was made consulting engineer and acted in that capacity as long as the investigation lasted, from 1889 to 1893. After that he was sent to Europe two or three times to investigate the irrigation systems there, the manner of reforesting denuded tracts of land and to study the best methods of preventing destruction of forests. The last of these trips was made about two years ago, when he came back from Spain with many new ideas. For the last two years he has been irrigation expert with the United States Department of Agriculture. His last report was on the reservoir system of the Cache la Poudre valley. This year he had been devoting his time to the study of the management of canals and the losses by seepage. Mrs. Nettleton and one daughter survive him. His only son died in Cheyenne last fall. His daughter is the wife of W. N. Pickard, an attorney of Kansas City, formerly of Pueblo. She was last night notified of the death. It is likely that the body will be taken to Kansas City for interment.

Newell, Raymond L.
The Very Reverend Raymond L. Newell - Walsenburg World-Independent - March 6, 1944 - Crash Injuries Prove Fatal To Very Rev. R. L. Newell - Walsenburg's Beloved Priest Dies Of Head Injuries Early Sunday. The very Rev. Raymond L. Newell, pastor of the St. Mary church of this community, and newly-appointed director of Catholic Charities for the Diocese of Pueblo, died at 8 o'clock Sunday morning at the Lamme Brothers hospital here as the result of injuries incurred when his car overturned near Crow, 25 miles north of Walsenburg on Highway 85. The accident occurred about 3:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The local pastor, beloved by all who knew him, was returning to Walsenburg from Pueblo after conferring with church officials there in connection with his new diocesan post. His appointment as charities director, effective March 1, was announced officially by the Most Rev. Joseph C. Willging, Bishop of Pueblo, only last Friday, although plans for the establishment of the office had been progressing for several weeks. According to information gathered by Huerfano County Coroner Dan Unfug, who brought Father Newell to Walsenburg for treatment in the Unfug-Peet ambulance, the accident occurred between Crow and Greenhorn just north of the Rye junction in Pueblo County. Officials of that county also were notified as well as Patrolman Bob Lackey of the state highway patrol, who arrived on the scene shortly after the accident on his regular schedule. Although there were no eyewitnesses to the accident, the theory is advanced that Father Newell lost control of his car after becoming blinded by the late afternoon sun which is particularly bad on that section of road; it is also possible that he dozed off while driving. The machine turned over once and possibly more and was extensively damaged. Mrs. James Dick and Orman Dick, who were traveling somewhat behind the Father's car, saw the machine leave the road and plunge into the barrow pit; shortly thereafter Patrolman Lackey arrived and a call for help was sent immediately and the Unfug-Peet ambulance responded, bringing the priest to Walsenburg where he was admitted to the hospital. Father Newell was conscious after the accident and walked to the ambulance. Owing to shock, however, he was unable to tell much concerning the cause of the accident. Examination at the hospital revealed that he incurred a brain concussion and a fractured spine near the base of the skull. It was first believed that he would recover but he took a sudden turn for the worse early Sunday morning and died at 8 o'clock. The Rev. Hubert Newell, Father Newell's twin brother of Denver, was at his bedside when he died. He was notified shortly after the accident and arrived Saturday night. The loss of this familiar figure will be deeply felt throughout the community and the entire Pueblo diocese, since he had just completed arrangements to assume his new duties as charities director. He was born Feb. 16, 1904, in Denver. He was ordained May 21, 1932, and served here since 1937, for two years from 1940 as administrator and then as pastor following the retirement of Rev. John Liciotti. He made his philosophical and theological studies at the St. Thomas seminary, Denver, and after his ordination he studied in the University of Denver and Columbia University. He received the degree of Licentiate of Canon Law, J.C.L., in the Catholic University of America in Washington. Before his assignment to Walsenburg, he was assistant pastor of Sacred Heart church, Pueblo; Holy Family church, Denver; and the Cathedral parish in Denver. He is survived by two sisters, Mrs. William E. Jones and Miss Margaret Newell, both of Denver; and by three brothers Thomas J. Newell; the Rev. John T. Newell, S.J., a missionary now stationed in British Honduras; and the Rev. Hubert Newell of Littleton and Denver, who is Catholic superintendent of schools for Colorado. During his assignment in Walsenburg, Father Newell was very prominent in community activities, including the Huerfano county chapter, American Red Cross; the Huerfano County Association for Civilian Defense; Walsenburg Rotary club, Knights of Columbus and numerous other church organizations. Under his leadership great strides have been in the St. Mary parish. A large portion of the church and school debt has been retired. The property of the church expanded and improved, and a number of new activities introduced for the social and spiritual needs of the parishioners. Walsenburg World-Independent - March 6, 1944 - So Passes a great man - The death of the Very Rev. Raymond L. Newell, beloved of all who knew him, regardless of race or creed, regardless of calling or station, is a severe blow to the entire community and to all the Diocese of Pueblo. We who knew him would say his passing is untimely, but it is not for us to question the immutable will of God nor seek to change those things ordained. A valiant and generous heart is stilled. It was dedicated to the service of God and was bounded only by the needs of humanity. The troubles of all the problems of the whole community were his to solve. It is particularly significant that his death occurred as a result of an errand of mercy. He was returning from a conference with church officials in connection with the establishment of a wide program of charity throughout southern Colorado. He was giving from the seemingly almost boundless store of energy that was his, taking to his heart the aches and disappointments of all who were weak in spirit. His last act was thus in service of others. He was a busy man. He crowded work into his days until it seemed that human flesh could not endure it, and yet from the depths of a soul at peace and in harmony with God's will, he gathered fresh strength to go on to assume more responsibilities, to broaden his good works and to bring spiritual peace to those who needed it. He is now at rest; his work on earth is finished. A man of action, delay and temporizing aroused his impatience. He was the only man in this community who could accomplish things rapidly and efficiently by cutting across religious, social and political lines. This he could do because he recognized no artificial barriers erected by men. He saw in each mortal the spark of immortality and his goal was to fan it into full flame, to raise man above himself and his petty fallings. Thoughtless of self, regardless of the physical drain on his energies, he devoted himself to helpful, friendly service. He was quick to laugh and to share the joys of living with his friends, and equally to lend a helping hand and an overflowing heart to soften the blows of adversity. There is no home but that has felt the warmth of this great soul. From the aching void his loss has caused in our hearts will surely arise new hope. Somehow we like to believe that the Father is still with us in spirit, applauding our successes, sharing our defeats, encouraging us when we falter. His is the example of human service at its best. We will break faith with his memory if we allow those things to be left undone which should be done; we shall be denying him the shared joy of accomplishment if we allow his passing to close the book of progress. He has placed the task in our hands as we so frequently passed our problems into his. Our chance to repay him in small measure is here. The heart of the whole community goes out to the members of his parish, who feel loss most keenly. But regardless of creed we all feel the loss of a sincere man of God, a true friend, a great humanitarian and a staunch American.
