Palmer, Samuel
Samuel Palmer – Durango Democrat – May 30, 1907 – Samuel Palmer Killed – Like a shock from the unknown flashed the news through the town last evening that at 5 o'clock Sam Palmer, the manager of the Durango Pressed Brick company, with yards on Lightner Creek, had been caught in the crusher at the plant and had been seriously injured. Dr. Ochsner, who had been summoned to wait upon the unfortunate victim, was seen at his office about 8 o'clock last night and reported that Mr. Palmer was injured beyond recovery, and that he could live but a very few hours. His legs were broken in several places and his hips crushed to a pulp. One arm was torn from its socket, besides serious chest and internal injuries. The accident occurred while Mr. Palmer was endeavoring to scrape some of the mixture in the crushing pan with a long handled scraper somewhat resembling a hoe, while doing so the scraper caught and pulled him into the pan, where he was thrown under one of the massive rollers and ground up before the machine could be stopped. The doctor was sent for immediately as was also an ambulance, but the man's condition was too serious to permit of his being taken to the hospital. Samuel Palmer was 56 years of age, and there remains to mourn him a wife, four daughters and one brother, all of whom are in Pueblo, and one brother, who was with him when he died. Mr. Palmer came to Durango from Greeley a year ago last February, and assumed the management of the plant where he met his death yesterday. He was born at Cinicinnati, Ohio, was a member of the I. O. O. F., the Masons and K. of P. No funeral arrangements have been made, but it is likely the remains will be shipped to Pueblo for interment. This will be determined as soon as his folks are communicated with. In all his dealings with his fellow-men Mr. Palmer was upright and conscientious. His was an unblemished career and the state, through his death, loses an honored and useful citizen. He had just about completed a new residence into which he was soon to move his family. Durango Democrat – June 1, 1907 – Sedgwick Post, G. A. R., of Durango escorted the remains of their late comrade, Samuel Palmer, to the depot yesterday morning, the body being shipped to Pueblo for burial. Note: Samuel Palmer was buried in Pioneer Cemetery in Pueblo, Colorado.

Pannell, Henry J. Jr.
Henry J. Pannell Jr. - 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.
