Walker, Eva M.
Eva M. Walker – Summit County Journal – September 30, 1899 – Children Were Crushed – Distressing Collision on the D. & R. G. Near Canon City – Denver, Sept. 25. – A special to the Republican says: Six lives were snuffed out in a twinkling by the collision of a Judson excursion train with a fast freight, at Reno, four miles out of Canon City, on the Denver & Rio Grande railroad, at 4:08 o'clock Saturday afternoon. Two are fatally and eight more or less seriously injured. A misinterpretation of orders, or a blunder, the blame for which has not been fixed, is responsible for the catastrophe. The Judson excurision train, bound from Chicago to San Francisco, left Pueblo at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon. This train consisted of an empty passenger coach and two tourist sleeping cars, both of which were filled with passengers, most of them bound for their homes in the West. The excursion train was drawn by a monster Mogul engine. At Florence orders were received to meet a fast freight train at Reno, four miles west of that place. An east-bound narrow gauge freight train received orders at Canon City to meet the excursion train at Reno. The siding was reached and passed by the freight which was gliding along down grade at a high rate of speed. The road winds through the tortuous Arkansas valley with many curves and turns. The excursion train was speeding along toward the siding under full head of steam. The passengers on the excursion train were admiring the beautiful scenery. Upon the platform of the forward sleeping car stood a group of children under the care of their elders. Simultaneous shrieks from two locomotives, the reversal of levers, a leap for life by two engineers and two firemen and then a crash. The two monster iron horses solidly interlocked marked the center of a heap of debris. Those killed are: Eva M. Walker, aged 12, Westford, Massachusetts; Eugenie B. Judkins, aged 12, Spokane, Washington; Addie F. Judkins, aged 10, Spokane, Washington; George H. Judkins, aged 6, Spokane, Washington; Merville Wills, aged about 10, son of Mrs. Effie Wills, who was fatally injured, Los Angeles, California; F. Salter, manager of the excursion, Boston. The anguish of parents bereaved of their children was distressing to see. So great was the force of the collision that the boiler of the big passenger engine formed a coat for that of the smaller engine. The day coach was jammed back into the middle sleeper nearly half its length, and cars loaded with ore are piled up in a mass of ruins. The tender of 574, the freight engine, lies across the track with one end resting on a box car. The disaster occurred on the identical spot where a similar though less serious collision happened last winter. The track passed under a high bluff, which forms one bank of the river.

William Walker - Yampa Leader - November 7, 1903 - Denver, Nov. 3 - A news special from Trinidad last night says: While running at the rate of forty miles an hour, passenger train No. 6, on the Santa Fe, was wrecked on a curve this morning, four and one-half miles east of Thatcher, thirty-nine miles east of Trinidad. William Walker, the fireman, of La Junta, was killed, and Engineer J. Posz (Post?) was badly scalded. It is stated that the wreck was caused by the spreading of the rails. This was the regular Denver-Kansas express, which since Saturday's wreck at Fowler, has been coming from Pueblo to Trinidad over the Denver & Rio Grande and Colorado & Southern, going from this city over the main line to La Junta. The engine and four of the cars left the track. The engine turned over on it s left side just out of a cut. The engineer felt the engine going and applied the air, thus probably saving the balance of the train. The fireman was breaking coal in the front of the tender, and was mashed between the boiler head and the tender, the water and steam pouring out on him from the broken pipes, scalding the head from the body. He suffered terrible agony, but died in about ten minutes. The engineer was pitched over the top of the boiler, falling on the left side of the cab, and crawled out from there with his clothing saturated with boiling water. A Chicago dispatch says: A reward of $5,000 has been offered by the management of the Santa Fe Railroad for evidence sufficient to convict the persons guilty of wrecking train No. 6 on October 30th. This action is the beginning of a campaign by the company by which it is hoped to make train holdups a serious matter for those who attempt them.

Walsen, Augusta V.
Augusta V. Walsen - Huerfano World - September 27, 1990 - Augusta Virginia Walsen, the granddaughter of one of Colorado's leading pioneers, died Sept. 17 after a short illness. She was 83. Miss Walsen was the granddaughter of Gen. Fred Walsen, founder of Walsenburg. She spent her life attending to family affairs and preserving her family's rich history. Gen. Heinrich Anton Fiedrich Walsen was born 1841 in Petershagen, Westphalia, Prussia. He left his native country and arrived in America in 1859. Walsen first settled in St. Louis, where he worked as a cigar maker until the Civil War. He enlisted in the Union Army in 1861, then joined the Missouri National Guard, where he served under his cousin's command. After an honorable discharge in 1864, General Walsen headed west to Kansas, driving loose oxen and ox teams. In 1867, he returned to St. Louis. But by 1870, he found himself drawn back to the West. He and his wife, Emilia, headed back and settled in Colorado in a small settlement called La Plaza de los Leones, where he opened a small general store. The trading post soon became a popular stop for travelers and for the Arapahoe and Ute Indians. The Walsen family flourished as Gen. Walsen became one of the area's important pioneers. Walsen became the first mayor of the town named for him and helped develop coal mining and sheep ranching in the area. In 1879 he was commissioned brigadier general of the 2nd Division of the Colorado State Militia by Gov. F.W. Pitkin. In 1882, Gen. Walsen was elected state treasurer and moved to Denver with his wife and four children, including, Miss Walsen's father, Fredrick George Walsen. Fred G. Walsen married Bertha Johnson in 1906 and Miss Walsen was born a year later in Walsenburg. Miss Walsen attended Park Hill School, Gove Junior High School and Colorado Women's College. She finished her education at Mount Vernon Seminary in Washington, D.C.A talented artist, she spent much of her time creating exceptional Easter and Christmas ornaments. Miss Walsen is survived by her brother, Frederick John Walsen of Denver. Her sister, Frances W. Bierhaus of Chicago, died Sept. 10. Private services were held yesterday at the Walsen family mausoleum in Fairmount Cemetery.

Walsen, Frederick John
Frederick John "Fred" Walsen - Huerfano World - December 3, 1998 - Frederick John "Fred" Walsen, grandson of the pioneer for whom Walsenburg was named, died Tuesday, November 24 in Denver. He was 81. Born June 9, 1917 in Denver, he was the only son of Fred George and Bertha Walsen. His father was involved in banking, insurance, and real estate. His mother was the daughter of J.B. Johnson, Walsenburg jeweler and merchant from 1889 to 1917. Mr. Walsen's grandfather, Heinrich Anton Fredrich Walsen, known as General Fred Walsen, was born in Prussia in 1841and emigrated to America at age 18. He settled in St. Louis, MO and was employed by a cigar maker. In April 1861 he enlisted in the Union Army and also served with the Missouri National Guard before the end of the Civil War. In 1864 the young man accompanied an ox train of supplies to Fort Garland for Ferdinand Meyer and Company. Walsen received his citizenship in 1865 and in 1867 he returned to St. Louis where he married Emilie F. Sporleder, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Sporleder who were early pioneers of Huerfano County. Walsen moved to Badito on the Huerfano River in 1870 but soon relocated at the Plaza de los Leones on the Cucharas. Here he opened a store and became involved with local affairs. With several other pioneers such as Captain Cornelius Hendren, Evaristo Gonzales, John Albert, Joseph Bourcey, and August Sporleder, Walsen was responsible for platting and incorporating the Town of Walsenburg in 1873, and getting the county seat moved to the settlement. He was the first mayor and the town was named in his honor. Gen. Walsen branched out from his mercantile business and was soon involved with cattle and sheep raising, railroad and toll road construction, banking and land development. He purchased large tracts of land as well as water rights and leased out coal lands and ranches. Besides Walsenburg, he was instrumental in the development of Las Vegas, NM and Ridgeway. He also had mines at Idaho Springs and owned property in several other counties in Colorado. In 1879 Walsen was made Brigadier General of the Second Division of the Colorado State Militia by Gov. Frederick W. Pitkin so from then on was called General. Gen. Walsen was elected state treasurer in 1882 and moved his family to Denver. He and his wife had five children, Lilly Johanna who died in infancy, Frieda Marie Gertrude, Emelia Fredericka Dorothea, Cora Fanny Hermina and Frederick George, all born in Walsenburg. Fred George continued his father's business affairs in Walsenburg for many years before moving permanently to Denver. He and Bertha had two daughters, Augusta Virginia and Frances Emelia and the one son. Fred George died in 1956 and his wife in 1969. Their daughters died within a few months of one another in 1990. Fred John Walsen was educated in Denver and graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder. He was an accountant until his retirement some years ago. He was also an avid researcher of history and classical music and, perhaps as a legacy from his maternal grandfather, of gemology. He collected many objects of art and history and generously donated many of these to Huerfano County's libraries and Francisco Fort Museum. His visits to the area were few but the latest occurred in the summer of 1997 when he made his final donation to the museum, his grandfather's sword. Mr. Walsen never married but dedicated himself to attending to family business and preserving its heritage. As the only son of an only son, his death ends the Walsen direct legacy. He was buried Monday in Fairmount Cemetery in Denver.

John Walsh - Trinidad Enterprise – May 17, 1879 – We are called upon to record the sudden death of John Walsh, the last of three brothers who, by strange coincidence or seeming fatality, have all met sudden death within a comparatively brief period. On Sunday last Mr. Wash walked from the coal mines of the D. & R. G. Coal Company to his ranch on the Apishipa, a distance of twenty-five miles, and was apparently well until Monday night, when he was taken sick, and died yesterday (Thursday) morning, at seven o'clock. On account of the distance it was impracticable to secure the services of a doctor, and therefore the cause of the sudden death is not definitely known. It seemed to be inflammation or congestion of the bowels. He leaves a wife and five children. Mr. C. R. Donaldson, a neighbor, came in yesterday to make the necessary arrangements for the funeral, which is expected to take place today. He will be buried in the cemetery east of town, where his brothers rest in the sleep that knows no waking. As before intimated, the fatality which has attended these brothers is somewhat remarkable. Hugh Walsh came in this county first, and settled upon a ranch on the Apishapa, about twelve miles below the railroad station, and twenty-five miles from town. A year ago last Christmas he was found frozen to death in the vicinity of the ranch. His brother John came out to this county after the death of Hugh, for the purpose of settling upon the ranch, which he did, and there died yesterday, as heretofore recounted. Meantime another brother, Michael Walsh, had become foreman of the D. & R. G. Company's coal mine, and in December last, nearly a year after the freezing to death of his brother Hugh, he also was ushered suddenly into the great unknown, being crushed to death by a fall of coal in the mine. And now comes the equally unexpected and almost as sudden death of John, the third and last brother, thus completing the fate of the Walshes. They were good men, respected and liked by their neighbors and companions, who much regret their loss, aside from the suddenness of their taking away.
