Nobile, Harry
Harry Nobile – Colorado Springs Gazette – October 27, 1928 – Slain Man Believed Bootleg War Victim – Trinidad, Colo., Oct. 26 – Sheriff's officers were tonight investigating into the death of Harry Nobile, formerly of Denver and Hudson, Wyo., whose riddled body was found near here today, on the theory that he was killed in bootleg warfare. The finding of three different makes of shotgun shells by the highway led to the belief that he had been fired upon by three men. Found near the body was a bullet-scarred automobile containing a rifle, revolver, cartridges, and a jug of moonshine whisky. Nobile formerly had been sentenced from Denver to serve one to two years in the state penitentiary on a second bootlegging offense.

Noble, Albert
Albert Noble – Colorado Public Defender – June 26, 1896 – William Holt, Albert Noble, and Deonicio Romero, Trinidad (Las Animas County). WW. Hanging/Broken necks. These three codefendants were convicted of the felony murder of a Trinidad police officer, John Solomon. In July 1895, Romero, age twenty-one, and Noble, age thirty-four, became acquainted with Leonardo Martinez and Pedro Baca, who were being held in the Las Animas County Jail pending trial for murder. Romero was serving a jail sentence for assault, having served several previous sentences for petty offenses. Noble had been arrested for a robbery in New Mexico, having previously served a seven-year sentence for robbing a post office. Upon release from jail, Romero, Noble, and a third man, William Holt, age twenty-one, conspired to rob the Horse Shoe Gambling Club in Trinidad to secure funds for Martinez and Baca's defense. Several others, including Martinez's mother, also assisted with the scheme. Officer John Solomon discovered and foiled the robbery. Solomon first struggled with Holt before Noble shot him in the back. Holt was the first person arrested; a gun left at the scene, which he purchased from a local pawnbroker a few days previously, tied him to the crime. Upon interrogation by the authorities, Holt confessed, and Romero quickly confirmed his story. Noble was tried first, followed by a joint trial for Holt and Romero. The convictions were affirmed on appeal. The three were executed in the first triple execution in Colorado's history. The men were executed in alphabetical order, in private, with all details prior to the executions kept secret. Originally the men were supposed to be hanged in the order of their culpability—Noble, Romero, and then Holt—but Holt was distressed that he “was called first.” Notably, Holt had to be carried to the death chamber.

Nolan, John M.
John M. Nolan - Yampa Leader - July 3, 1914 -Three Die, Four Hurt - Pueblo -Three men were killed , four were injured, while several others whose bodies have not been recovered, are believed to have been buried in the debris, when the engine of an extra freight train comprising thirty-two cars and caboose left the rails on the main line of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad near the Goodnight ranch, six miles west of Pueblo, and plowed into an embankment. The wreck is attributed by railroad officials to the spreading of the rails, caused by their expansion under intense heat. A repair crew was at work on the track, over which trains were passing frequently, when the accident occurred. The dead: John M. Nolan, engineer; crushed to death in his cab. Jose Perez, thirty, crushed to death in refrigerator car. Juan Sevalues, 23; crushed to death in refrigerator car. The injured: O. V. Hipps, fireman; scalded by escaping steam and bruised in jumping to safety from cab. Charles Barone, thirty, Shawnee, Okla., ribs broken and possible internal injuries. Andrew Alcon, twenty-eight, Lucerne, N.M.; bruised and possible internal injuries. George Lowe, thirty-five, member of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, Sparks, Nev.; broken leg. Only about half of a band of twenty-five tramps who were riding the train toward the wheat fields of Kansas have been accounted for. It is thought likely that an examination of the wreckage of the eight cars which followed the engine from the rail and were demolished may reveal more dead. None of the present list of known dead were members of the train crew except the fireman and the engineer. The body of the engineer was dug from his cab about four hours after the crash. The force of the impact of the giant freight locomotive against the soft dirt embankment forced one side of the engine into the slope for several feet. Nolan's skull was crushed and his body was completely buried.

Nolan, Margaret
Margaret Nolan - Pueblo Chieftain - June 15, 2004 - Margaret Nolan went to be with her Lord on June 12, 2004. Preceded in death by her husband, John Nolan Jr.; and son, Donald Nolan. Survived by her sons, Robert (Verna) Nolan, Ron (Betty) Nolan, both of Pueblo; sister, Ann Perry; and sister-in-law, Flora Nolan, both of Pueblo; grandchildren, Warren (Rosalie) Nolan, Doug Nolan, Lounell (Mark) Cox, Greg (Lorraine) Nolan, Stuart Nolan, Dawna Nolan Dwyer, Michael (Char) Zupan, Ronda Delisa and Michael Nolan. Also survived by 10 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren. She was a member of Holy Family Catholic Church. She was wonderfully, beautifully and simply grandma. She was grandma forever it seems. Of course, she was grandma to her grandchildren, but she also was grandma to her friends, neighbors, nurses, and in the later years of her life even her three sons gave in and called her grandma. She was the best of everything the word grandma implied. Except she wasn't soft, round or particularly cuddly. She weighed, maybe all of 80 pounds, but it was all heart and love except for the simple dresses, stockings, and heels she wore ever single day of her life. She must have gone straight from diapers to dresses. In her wedding picture she is pretty, and petite with beautiful doe like eyes. No wonder that my grandfather looks so cocky and self-assured in the same picture. Grandma and grandpa were happily, crazily and beautifully in love. It's odd, but while the rest of the world called her grandma, my grandpa called her mom. I doubt they ever spent a night apart except when, according to family legend, grandpa spent a night in jail for fishing where he wasn't supposed to be fishing. He was after big, but illegal trout. Fishing stories abound in our family, and while grandma seldom went fishing with grandpa and his boys, she always packed us lunches in brown paper bags. Each paper bag included such luxury items as homemade chocolate chip cookies, potato chips and Pepsi. Yes, these were luxury items. My grandpa died in 1971, and for 30 some years, my grandma has dreamed of joining her beloved Johnny in heaven. Grandma was blind, she was blind for nearly 60 years, and most of us never remember her being any other way. But, she did not live a life of darkness, she lived a life of pure, unalloyed light. Grandma's love was not a compound, it was not mixed with any other chemical, it was this warm, all enveloping thing that loved everything and everyone in its path. It's no accident that Mother Theresa always reminded us of grandma. Both were small, tiny but tough, Slavic women who were blind. Blind to the surface differences and imperfections of people, but alive to the inside beauty of people. According to grandma, we are all angels; we are all children of God. When some of her grandchildren decided to become hippies in the sixties, estranged from our own parents, grandma was blind to the length of our hair and went right on loving us. At the end of every visit with grandma, she would envelop you in her strong, bony arms and give you a big, sloppy wet kiss. There was no escaping those arms or that kiss; her love moved amazingly fast. Grandma was not only about invisible, abstract love; she also was about things you could smell and stick in your mouth like potica, crappie, struklji, kolbassi, and strudel. No one could roll out thinner potica dough. When you were positive that the potica dough could not be rolled out any thinner or it would disappear, she would continue right on rolling until the circle of dough would double in size. She wielded her long wooden rolling pin like some kind of weapon. Her struklji, Slovenian dumplings filled with bread crumbs, toasted in butter, were divine gifts from the old country. We would gorge on them until we were sick. Just as grandma was the repository for family birthdays, anniversaries and deaths she was a walking, talking recipe book. She must have committed the Slovenian cookbook, "Woman's Glory: The Kitchen" to memory. Last week, as she lay dying in her hospital room, she went into great detail about how to make soup. How fitting that this would be one of her final lucid moments. Last week the desire, the urgency to join her beloved Johnny in heaven proved too much. She couldn't see, hear or swallow, so she consciously chose to leave this world for another world. Grandma we love you. As your children we should know something about love. Donations may be made in memory of Margaret to the American Federation of the Blind. Graveside service, 2 p.m. Thursday, June 17, 2004, at Imperial Memorial Gardens.
