Stiffli, Enrico
Enrico Stiffli - Daily Nevada State Journal, Reno, NV - January 24, 1907 - Primero, Colorado - Colorado Fuel & Iron Co. Coal Mine Explosion, January 23, 1907 - Twenty lives go out in a mine explosion over in Colorado - Trinidad, Colo., Jan 23 - Twenty miners, according to the authentic information available his evening, lost their lives as a result of an explosion which occurred at three o'clock this morning in the Colorado Fuel & Iron Company's Coal mine near Primero, twenty miles west of this city. Twenty coffins have been ordered by the company from a local undertaking establishment. Two of the dead are Frank Hobat, miner, and R. J. Lumbey, fire boss. The names of the other men killed have not been learned, as the shift boss, who had charge of the men who went into the mine last night, is missing. All the men except Lumley were foreigners, most of them being Italians. The explosion stopped the air fan, which was not repaired until late today, and there is little chance that any of the men in the mine at the time of the explosion are still alive. District Superintendent Robert O'Neil is personally directing the work of rescue. Volunteers from adjacent mines are assisting. Rescuers have been divided into two hour shifts and work will be kept up continuously until the entire mine is explored. During the entire day excitement ran high and relatives of the entombed miners stood waiting at the entrance to the mine for a sight of any of the victims that might be brought to the surface. The damage to the mine cannot be learned tonight. An attempt is being made to force air into the mine in the hope that some of the entombed men may be alive, and thus prevent their suffocating. Late advices are that the mine is badly wrecked. The rescue party has penetrated three hundred feet and recovered four bodies, the names not being given. Reno Evening Gazette, Reno, NV- Jan 24, 1907 - Trinidad, Colo., January 24, 1907 - Heroically at work the rescuing party has so far succeeded in recovering but four bodies from the Primero Mine where the explosion occurred yesterday morning. Following is a list of dead whose bodies have been recovered: Angelo Pezitti, Fortunato Gracamato, Enrico Stiffli, C. Casagranada. The missing supposed to be dead in the mine are: J. Reece Lumley, mine boss; Madisto Formali, Louie and Joseph Sipas, John Tokar, John Toth, John Toth Jr., M. Omadono, Angelo Maddelena, Robert and John Fatur and Julius Randolph.

Huerfano World - April 16, 1998 - Page 2: A member of the old guard of Walsenburg died this week. J. J. Stimack died April 12, 1998. He was a mule in his thinking, as one of his friends said. He never waivered from his ideas or proposals, no matter what anyone said. And, he was outspoken in each and everyone, saying them in meetings, of which he attended many or just around the coffee table. Lately, most every day of the week. In the late 70s and even before, he was firm in his convictions. He sold candy and raised money for the Walsenburg Club like there was no tomorrow. He sold squares on his perpetual boards for the church and the Knights of Columbus, always noting St. Mary School and her students would benefit. As a commissioner, he was known for his cajoling of people far and wide - sometimes for the betterment and sometimes for the worse. Most young people today would not understand his perceptions or his opinions. They were many and did lots of good for this community and county. If he stepped on a few toes, so be it. In the last years, he was in to his Keota Club - a card club organized with his many friends years ago. He didn't play golf much anymore, but there were years when he and his son and grandsons helped to make the annual invitational successful. He was a driver and steady. His company in this old world will be lamentately wanted by many who will see his demise as a part of the old guard gone away.

Stokes, Mr.
Mr. Stokes – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – December 23, 1875 - The way of transgressors is hard, not only to themselves, but to the friends who are attached to them. At the time of the homicide of Fisk, Edward S. Stokes had an aged father and two brothers younger than himself, who devoted themselves to saving him with the most untiring zeal. One brother died with consumption, said to have been caused or hastened by the intense anxiety which he suffered on Ned's account; and now it is stated that his father, who died suddenly on Saturday, was brought to the grave by the grief which he experienced at the failure of his efforts to get his son pardoned. Stokes will emerge from prison at the expiration of his sentence to find his home greatly changed; a brother who loved him tenderly and his father gone and his wife divorced!

Stokes, Mr.

Stone, Verncie Pauline
Verncie Pauline Stone – Newspaper Unknown - April 1999 - Kiowa County, Colorado - Verncie Pauline Stone, 88, was born near Petigrew, Arkansas, January 15, 1911. She was the fourth of five children born to Otis and Arlevia Johnson. At one year of age, her family moved to Kingfisher, Oklahoma, and then at the age of four they moved to a homestead 13 miles northwest of Fowler. She attended school through the eighth grade at Lakeview, a one room school, four miles from her home. She married at 16 years of age, and to this union two children were born, Merl and Mary Lou. After this marriage dissolved she obtained a job at Karval working for the Frank Crossens. It was during this period she met Roy Stone. They married on December 28, 1933. Two children were born to this marriage, Lola and Vernon. During the first five years of their married life, they lived seven miles southwest of Karval. In 1938, they moved to their home two miles west of Karval. They continued to live there until Roy's death in 1985. Vernice continued to live at Karval until November, 1987, at which time she became unable to live alone. The next five years she lived with each of her four children. In 1992, she was placed in the Weisbrod Nursing Home in Eads, where she remained there until her death. Vernice was a hard working lady with a strong personality. She loved people, especially her family. There was always time in her life to take care of nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She enjoyed having people stop in for a meal. No matter how many or how short the notice, she always seemed to be prepared and could feed any number that arrived. God and her church were always very important to her. As a youth growing up, church attendance Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings was never up for debate. It came first, then other plans could be attended to. The first indication that her mind was beginning to fail was when she began missing Sunday morning meetings. This was completely out of character for her, so her family was sure she was beginning to have problems at that time. It was very disheartening to watch her decline from the pillar of strength that kept everyone else propped up, to the point where she was unable to converse with family and friends. Vernice was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Elza and Holly; one sister, Dorlas; her husband, Roy; and daughter, Mary Lou. Mrs. Stone passed away on April 7, 1999, at Weisbrod Hospital in Eads, at the age of 88. She is survived by her children, Merl (Lola) Thomas of Pueblo, Lola (Chuck) Igou of Eads, and Vernon (Mona) Stone of Hugo; nine grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren; 10 step grandchildren; and one brother, Paul (Marteal) Johnson of Grand Junction. Funeral services for Vernice P. Stone were held Sunday, April 11, 1999, at the Karval School in Karval with Leslie White, Roxi Cotten and Kathy Glazebrook officiating. Kevin Hartman, Karen Hartman and Chuck Igou were accompanied by Roger Hartman as they provided the musical selections 'Only Trust In Jesus,' 'God Hath Not Promised,' and 'I Will Leave It all To Jesus.' Serving as casket bearers were: Marty Adams, Dolan Gram, David McDaniel, Kenny Book, Denny Igou, Brandon Igou, Steve Uhland, Merlin Thomas and Eli Abordo. Following the service, the large gathering of family and friends went in procession to the Karval Cemetery where the final committal services were held.
