Torrence, Hugh
Hugh Torrence – Meeker Herald – May 22, 1909 – Hugh Torrence – A telegram was received last Friday, by L. B. Walbridge, announcing the death of Hugh Torrence at the Work sanitarium, Pueblo. Mr. Walbridge, who has been conservator of the Torrence estate, accompanied the remains to Galesburg, Ill., where they were buried. All are familiar with the mental break down which came on Mr. Torrence a few years ago and the news of his demise was not unexpected. However, all old-timers in Rio Blanco and Routt counties will regret to hear of his passing away. He was a pioneer in northwestern Colorado; prominent in the business and political world; of the highest integrity and greatly esteemed by all who knew him. Meeker Herald - May 22, 1909 – Mr. Hugh Torrence, the son of Hugh and Anna Torrence, was born near Connellsville, Pa., October 22, 1843. He was a cousin of the late General Joseph Torrence of Chicago, whose father James was an elder brother of Hugh Torrence, Sr. The boyhood days of Mr. Torrence were spent in Pennsylvania and Illinois. In 1867 he located in Johnson county, Mo., and in 1874 he became a resident of Colorado and a pioneer of Yampah river valley. He first lived near old Yampah, later at Lay, and in 1882 located at Axial, Colo., and formed a partnership in the cattle business with Mr. Charles J. Hulett. This partnership continued until the death of the latter in 1903, and was successful and agreeable, because of the business qualifications of the two men, their congenial natures, and their brotherly treatment and affection for each other. They were widely known among cattle raisers and dealers, on account of their ability in raising, buying and selling cattle. In an early day they purchased cattle in Utah, and in later years in Texas, New Mexico and Oregon. Mr. Torrence departed this life May 14, 1909. His body was taken by Hon. L. B. Waldbridge to Galva, Ill., where it was laid to rest by the grave of his father and mother. Besides hosts of friends who mourn his death, the deceased leaves the following relatives to whom he was dear: Sisters, Mrs. Eliza McGillard and Miss Emma Torrence of Fountain City, Ind.; niece, Miss Pearl Witteman, Blairstown, Mo.; nephews, Messrs. C. E. McGillard and Forest McGillard of Fountain City, Ind., G. E. Witteman of Chicago, and C. H. Wittman formerly of Ringsted, Iowa. Mr. Torrence was a believer in Christ, an attendant at church service, and a reader of the Bible. His spirit has gone to “God who gave it.” Let us not sorrow as those who have no hope, but let us look forward to meeting him in heaven, where “death shall be no more; neither shall there be mourning nor crying, nor pain any more.” The following words of Mr. Torrence, penned years ago, may be used as a message to every person who reads them: “It is only a matter of time with the best of us, and a short time at that. Let us live in accordance and prepare for a better world.” The relatives of Mr. Torrence desire to express their gratitude to Messrs. Hulett and Walbridge for their kindness and assistance in managing the affairs of the deceased during his long illness. Note: Hugh Torrence Jr. was buried in Galva Cemetery, near Galva, Illinois. Steamboat Pilot - May 26, 1909 – Hugh Torrence, for years one of the best known cattlemen in Routt county and also one of the wealthiest, died last week at the insane asylum in Pueblo, where he has been confined for several years. The body was taken east for burial, accompanied by Boyd Walbridge, who has been conservator of the estate since Mr. Torrence has been incapable of attending to business. Routt County Sentinel – May 28, 1909 – Hugh Torrence Dies at Asylum – Hugh Torrence died at the state insane asylum at Pueblo on Friday, May 14. Representative Walbridge, conservator of the estate, left Meeker, Saturday, May 15, to attend to the burial and at the request of friends of the deceased took the remains to Galesburg, Illinois, for burial. Mr. Torrence was one of the old pioneers of Routt County and twice a candidate on the Republican ticket for this District for representative. He was considered the leading cattle man of Routt County until his infirmity about four years ago, when he became insane and was sent to the asylum for treatment and Representative L. Boyce Walbridge was appointed by the court as conservator of his person and estate. Mr. Walbridge has continued his cattle and agricultural interests at Axial, Colo., since his infirmity, at the request of the heirs of the lunatic, and at the date of his death takes charge of the remains and buries them at their request at Galesburg, the home of the deceased before his advent and residence in Routt county. Yampa Leader - May 28, 1909 - The meeker Herald has received news of the death of Hugh Torrence at Pueblo on May 14. Hr. Torrence was a pioneer in Axial basin and the firm of Hulett & Torrence, of which he was a member, was one of the largest owners of land and livestock in that portion of the county. His health broke down several years ago and he has since been cared for the Work sanitarium.

Toth, John Jr.
John Toth Jr. - 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.
