John W. Shaw – Durango Democrat – February 12, 1909 – Another Old Pioneer Gone – At 10 o'clock yesterday morning John W. Shaw breathed his last at the home of his daughter, Mrs. E. E.

E. Waters of Mancos, Mrs. L. A.

Shaw, Lawrence Ward
Lawrence Ward Shaw - World Independent – May 9, 1935 - Smoke From Fire In Old Globe Shaft Suffocates Cameron Miner Yesterday - Lawrence Shaw, of La Veta, Collapses as Last Group of Thirteen Reaches Fresh Air; Assistant Mine Foreman Also Overcome Directing Men - Death from suffocation for Lawrence Ward Shaw, 37, rope rider at the Cameron Mine, was the result of the fire in the Globe shaft at Cameron yesterday afternoon when Shaw, who with twelve other men had come from a point about two miles back in the workings of the mine after the general alarm, collapsed as the party reached fresh air. Gastano Savio and Tom Bodycomb, two of the party, said that just a few minutes before, Shaw had offered to help carry Dave Atken, assistant mine foreman, who had remained far back in the mine to direct the men to safety, and was overcome by the smoke. As the party reached fresh air, Shaw collapsed suddenly, Savio said. Atken was revived and today had completely recovered from the effects of the smoke. Shaw was dead when they got him out of the mine. Dr. G.M. Noonan, company physician, who was called to the mine, said that he found Shaw dead when he was lowered to the place in the mine where he collapsed. A mine rescue squad had worked over him for about 45 minutes without results. With C.A. Tallman, deputy coroner, R.L. Hare, general superintendent of the C.F. & I. company from Pueblo, and his assistant George Rupp, went into the mine last night to inspect the conditions there. An inquest probably will be held to determine the cause of Shaw's death. J.L. McBrayer, Cameron superintendent, said today following an investigation, that the cause of the short in the wiring which started the fire was a board dropped accidentally by one of the men wrecking the Globe tipple. He said the board scraped the insulation from one of the wires, which then came in contact with another wire starting the fire. McBrayer praised the work of the rope riders and young men in the mine, who waited until the last, allowing all the older workers to get out first. He said the work was handled as well as he had ever seen. Fire crews poured water down the Globe shaft until late last night and it is believed that the fire was completely extinguished. Company officials at Farr said today, that work could be resumed at any time. The mine was to be closed today anyway. The Globe shaft was an intake for the Cameron mine and after the fire started in the shaft, smoke was sucked quickly into the main workings of the mine. Five men were engaged in wrecking the Globe tipple to take it to Trinidad. Roco de Paulo, of Trinidad, recently purchased the tipple from C.F. & I. Co. Henry Ortega, who with Bud Holloworth, Alec Lucero, R.C. Chandler and Henry Holloworth, was helping drag timbers out of the shaft and dismantle the tipple, said that he was working directly (incomplete) make any headway with the blaze, and the Walsenburg fire truck was called. When they arrived, the old shaft house and tipple had burned to the ground. In the mine, the workers were making an orderly exit, according to several of the men in charge, and most of them were out by 3:30 o'clock. The group in which Shaw was making its way out came from the Sixth parting, nearly two miles in the mine. They were the last ones to reach the surface. It was between 3:30 and 4 o'clock when Shaw collapsed, according to the men who were with him. Shaw is survived by his wife, Flora, his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Sherman Shaw, of La Veta, a brother, Raneldo and sister, Aileen, of La Veta, and a sister, Mrs. Lilela Crothy of Silverton. He had lived in the county for 19 years, having come here from Nashville, Missouri. Funeral services will be announced later form the Unfug-Peet Mortuary. World Independent – May 11, 1935 - Jury Says That Shaw Died From Suffocation - Story of Heroic Work of Younger Men at Mine Told on Stand at Coroner's Inquest Last Night; Shaw Aiding Rescue Workers – Lawrence Ward Shaw, 37, rope rider at the Cameron mine "met death as the result of over-exertion, smoke and polluted air" said a coroner's jury last night following an inquest into the miner's death last Wednesday when the mine was filled with smoke from the burning Globe shaft, an intake to the mine. The heroic work of the younger men in the mine, including Shaw, during the evacuation of nearly 200 workers, some of them from a point about two miles back in the workings, was told on the witness stand last night. With Lee Boscia, another rope rider at the mine, Shaw made twelve trips into the smoke filled portion of the mine to conduct older men into the right manway in order that they would not get lost. There two men offered many of the older men parts of their clothing as they were emerging into colder air. Foreman Jim Jamison, who directed the evacuation work, said that Shaw was engaged in the work for about an hour and ten minutes. All of the younger men at the mine were praised by Superintendent J.L. McBrayer for the way in which they conducted themselves. Eight witnesses, including two doctors and six workers at the mine, testified before the jury. C.A. Tallman, deputy coroner, who investigated the case, was in charge of the inquest. Harvey Starbuck, deputy district attorney questioned the witnesses. Dr. G.M. Noonan as C.F. &I. company physician was first witness on the stand. He said that in his opinion, Shaw died from organic heart trouble. He said he based his opinion on the past record of the man, whom he had sent to Corwin hospital in 1933 and again in 1934 for medical attention. He said Shaw was dead when he reached the point about one and a half miles inside the mine where he fell, and that a rescue squad had administered artificial respiration for forty-five minutes. Dr. Noonan said he was present when Dr. S. M. Lamme performed the Post Mortem at the Unfug-Peet Mortuary, as was Dr. W.S. Chapman, but that the doctors did not hold a consultation. Superintendent McBrayer asked Dr. Noonan why he believed Shaw did not die from suffocation and Dr. Noonan replied that there was no discoloration in the face when he examined him in the mine. Dr. S.J. Lamme was called to the stand and testified that he was unable to determine the cause of death from the post mortem examination. He said that the lungs did not show sufficient reaction to cause death, but added that the body had been injected by the undertaker and therefore it was hard to determine the exact condition. He said the lungs were collapsed and parts of them were dark. Dr. Lamme said that Shaw's heart was normal. When recalled to the stand later, Dr. Lamme, answering Tallman's question, said there was no direct evidence of heart trouble. He said Shaw was a strong man in appearance. Jim Jamison, foreman at the mine, testified that he was called from the mine at 1:30 Wednesday afternoon. He said it took him twenty minutes to get out, and that when he saw the conditions above he went immediately back to the sixth parting and ordered all men out of the mine immediately. He said he phoned all parts of the mine from the sixth parting at 1:55. Jamison said with four other men, including Shaw, he stayed at the sixth parting and directed the evacuation. He said a group of men came along carrying Dave Atken, assistant pit boss, who had given out further back in the mine while directing the men at a point two miles back. He said Shaw offered to relieve the men carrying Atken, but was refused. He said they all started out and these were the last men, and that he had his hand on Shaw's shoulder when he dropped to the ground after taking about fifteen steps. He said that Shaw had been employed at the mine for over ten years and had been rope rider and parting tender for seven. Answering McBrayer, Jamison said there was no smoke at the point where Shaw fell. He said Shaw made twelve trips back into the mine to conduct men, and was doing this work for about an hour and ten minutes. Jamison said that one of the older men who was feeling low, Joe Barnosky, had been revived at that point by sprinkling water on his forehead. Shaw helped in this work. Frank Tomsic, one of the men who was helping to carry Atken, said Shaw tried to relieve him, telling him that he was fresh, and that Tomsic was tired from his long walk through the smoke. Tomsic refused him, however, and said that Shaw dropped fifteen steps later. He said Atken revived when he reached fresh air. Lee Boscia, who was working with Shaw was called to the stand and testified that Shaw tried several times to get him to let him take his position in the smoke section. He said that he and Shaw lent most of their clothing to older men as they came to that point. Boscia said that he held out hope for Shaw after he collapsed and that he worked on him for a long time administering artificial respiration. He answered McBrayer's question that the temperature was about …. and out of it at that distance in the mine. Pete Carnusco testified that he saw Shaw fall. He said that the..(incomplete) stricken man did not again regain consciousness. Joe Barnosky testified next that he had some trouble getting from the smoke, as his legs gave out. Battiste Padoven testified that Shaw tried to relieve him also when he was helping carry Atken from the mine. He said several older men appeared in distress and he offered to help them. The jury was composed of Mike Valdez, Walter Westbrook, Tom Campbell, Jack Jennings, and Fred Ivey, all of Walsenburg, and Dominic Dewey of Toltec. Funeral services for Shaw will be held at La Veta tomorrow afternoon at the Methodist church with the Reverend T.L. MacAllister officiating. Interment will be in the La Veta cemetery under the direction of the Unfug-Peet. Pall bearers will be Walter Pisarcayk, Thomas Reese, Joe Benavidez, Lee Boscia, Jim Warrick, and Pete Cernusco.
