Price, John H.
John H. Price - Colorado Weekly Chieftain - October 15, 1868 – Fatal Affray - The following account of a fatal affray, near the mouth of the Huerfano, has been sent us by a gentleman at Fort Reynolds: "At a fandango, on the Huerfano, Saturday, October 10th, given by French Joe, a son-in-law of Charley Autubees, a party of soldiers and citizen employees from Fort Reynolds attended.  About midnight a Mexican fired upon one of the soldiers, who was very drunk, and who instantly returned the fire.  The soldier's name is George H. Greenland.  Mr. John H. Price, a carpenter at the Fort, in attempting to take the pistol from Greenland received a shot in the right breast, from which he died Monday morning.  Mr. Price was much esteemed by all who knew him." We learn from other sources that the soldier, Greenland, was badly injured in the fray, and that his recovery is doubtful. Colorado Weekly Chieftain, Thursday, October 22, 1868, page 3: We were in error last week in stating that the fatal affray, in which Mr. Price lost his life, occurred at Mr. Autubees.  It took place at a point distant two miles from that place on the Huerfano. Colorado Weekly Chieftain - October 15, 1868 - The body of Mr. Price, who was killed at Charley Autubees', on Saturday last, was buried at this place on Tuesday by the Good Templars, of which order the deceased had been a member.

He grew to manhood at his birthplace and was married to Elizabeth Flower of the same neighborhood and who passed away about nine years ago. To this union two children were born: Sadie Price Aspaas and Wm. F. Price, both residents of this county. In 1877 deceased moved to the plains of central Kansas with his family, and in 1900 he moved to Colorado and settled on the Fort Lewis mesa, below Fort Lewis, in which neighborhood he lied till a few yeas ago. In May, 1916, he was stricken with a partial stroke of paralysis from which he never fully recovered; and since he has made his home with his daughter at this place. About three weeks ago it was thought advisable to remove him to a hospital and arrangements were made and he was taken to Pueblo where he died in less than a week. Deceased was a member by birth of the Society of Friends, commonly called Quakers, and lived the faith nearly as possible with the rigors of frontier life. During his active life he was always cheerful and quick with repartee and joke. He loved children and was always happy in his association with them. He was always ready with helpful hand and cheerful word to help a neighbor in distress. The last few years, seeming to realize that his life work was done, he has often expressed the wish to be laid to rest. The funeral services held at the Aspaas home Wednesday were conducted by Rev. Chambers of Bayfield and the remains laid to rest in the local cemetery. The profound sympathy of the community goes to the bereaved family.
