Jacob “Jake” Weber – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – May 18, 1876 – The Shooting At Rosita – Particulars of the Killing of Jake Weber – On Tuesday morning a special telegram was published in the Chieftain stating that a man named Jake Weber had been shot in Rosita by O. P. Townsend the proprietor of a saloon in that place. A gentleman just arrived from the neighborhood of Rosita gives us the following particulars of the affair: It appears that on Saturday evening a ball was given by the Turnverein of Rosita, and among those who attended it were several men from the Wet Mountain valley. One of these parties left his overcoat and scarf at Townsend's saloon, previous to going to the ball, and just before daylight, when the owner of the coat was ready to start for home, he in company with Weber and others, went to the saloon to get his property. On the arrival of the party there the man who owned the coat knocked at the door. Townsend inquired what was wanted and on being told, without striking a light, opened the door and handed out the clothing. He then closed the door and locked it. No sooner had Townsend done this than some one in the crowd, Weber it is supposed, threw a beer glass through the window into the saloon. Townsend, who seems to have expected some difficulty, immediately fired through the window, the ball striking Jake Weber on the left hip a short distance below the joint. A short time previously Weber had had some difficulty with Townsend and it seems the latter expected an attack from him. Directly after the shooting the wounded man was carried to the office of Dr. Sperry, who probed the wound but failed to find the ball. At first Weber was supposed not to be seriously wounded, but all day on Sunday he continued to sink until night when he died. A post mortem examination demonstrated the fact that the ball had struck a bone and was turned from its course, passing up into the bowels and severing the intestines in three places. Weber was, as we learn, a man of exceedingly quarrelsome disposition, and his death occasions but little regret among the people where he resided. The following story with reference to his doings shows the manner of man he was: A short time since he took his watch to a watchmaker in Rosita to be repaired. He called for it soon after and the watchmaker told him he could not have it unless he paid for the repairs. Weber immediately drew a six shooter and compelled the watchmaker not only to hand over the watch but also five dollars. If this story is true, Mr. Weber's decease will not be a very serious blow to the community in which he lived. Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – May 18, 1876 – The Rosita Shooting – Statement of Mr. O. P. Townsend – On Monday our reporter interviewed Mr. O. P. Townsend, now under arrest in this city, charged with the murder of Jacob Weber, in Rosita, on the 6th inst. Mr. Townsend has the appearance of a man who would not hunt up a quarrel or create a disturbance, and bears, as we understand, the reputation of being a quiet, law abiding citizen. His statement of the unfortunate affair, is as follows: On Saturday the 6th of May, between seven and eight o'clock in the evening, Conrad Snyder, Michael J. Snyder, John Schutlin and Jacob Weber came to Townsend's saloon and took a few drinks. All were sober and peaceable. One of the Snyders left his overcoat and scarf in the saloon, when he went away, saying that he would return and get it before he went home. The party then, with the exception of Weber, went to the German Turners' ball. Weber remained and played cards with some men who were in the saloon. Those who went to the ball came back about one o'clock. During the afternoon previous, Townsend had had some words with Schutlin's father, who is a bootmaker, with reference to the making of a pair of boots. On the return of the party the younger Schutlin called Townsend from behind the bar and accused him of insulting his (Schutlin's) father, and saying he could whip Townsend. Townsend said he wanted no disturbance and returned behind his bar. Schutlin kept on quarreling and daring Townsend out to fight. Townsend told him to be quiet or he would put him out, when one of the Snyders took up the quarrel and said that Townsend shouldn't do it. While this was going on, Weber and some of his friends had come up to the bar and called for beer, which Towsend, being engaged with the other parties, had failed to supply. Weber reached across the bar and struck Townsend on the nose, asked him if he was going to set up that beer, and at the same time drawing a revolver. The beer was forthcoming immediately. Weber then asked one of the Snyders to set up the beer, but he said he had no money and Townsend wouldn't trust. The other Snyder then said they would have all the beer they wanted and wouldn't pay a cent for it. Mr. Woodbury, the barkeeper, then went behind the bar and said they shouldn't have any row there. Weber called him to one side and said: “I have nothing against you but this d----d Townsend I'm going to clean out. This is stopped now but it ain't ended.” The party then had some more beer and all of (them) left and Townsend closed the place and went to bed. About half past three they returned and woke Townsend up. He inquired what they wanted and was told the overcoat and scarf. Townsend opened the door a short distance and handed the articles out, immediately closing the door and bracing it with a board placed under the lock. He then started to walk back towards his bed. The men outside then began to kick against the door, demanding admission. Townsend turned down the light and took up his revolver. Weber called out: “Why don't you open the door, call the boys in and set 'em up, and have some style about you, like a white man?” One of the crowd then remarked, “Let's break the d----d thing in and put a head on him if he won't give us something to drink!” Townsend then stepped up on a chair to look out of the upper part of the window and see what they were doing, the lower part being painted, when a beer mug was thrown through the window smashing the glass in his face. He then fired into the crowd with the intention of frightening them and struck Weber as before stated. At the preliminary examination some very contradictory swearing was done, and it came out that Schutlin threw the beer glass through the window. Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – May 18, 1876 – Rosita – The Shooting of Jacob Weber – Editor Chieftain: - I notice an article in the Chieftain of the 11th, in regard to the shooting of Jacob Weber, which, for pure, unadulterated cussedness and falsehood, gets ahead of anything ever before brought to our notice. Weber, in said article, is represented as being a desperado. There never was a statement more utterly false, but on the contrary, Mr. Weber was a man of a very peaceful disposition, and was highly respected in this community, and his death is sincerely regretted by all, except a few particular (?) friends of his slayer. The statement that Weber had a difficulty with O. P. Townsend, is also untrue. It was two brothers by the name of Snyder and one John Chittlet who had the difficulty with Townsend, and Weber acted as peace-maker. I don't know who the gentleman from Rosita is, who furnished those statements for the Chieftain, but I do think that a person who could willfully and maliciously malign a man in his grave, unworthy to bear the appellation of gentleman. The facts that came out in evidence on the examination before Judge Brewster, were that Weber made no disturbance before Townsend's saloon, at the time of the shooting, but was going away, and had, in fact, reached the middle of the street when he was shot down. The statement that Weber demanded his watch, and five dollars, with a six shooter, has no foundation except in the brain of the creature who had the courage to attack a man after he was cold in his grave. I know the Chieftain has always championed the cause of right, and denounced wrong wherever it appeared, with fearlessness, and I ask that in justice and vindication of the deceased, Jacob Weber, you will give this space in your valuable paper. C., Rosita, May 12th, 1876.

Anton Bernard Wehling - Kiowa County Press – December 2, 2003 - Eads, CO - Anton Bernard Wehling was born May 5, 1920, at Hemmingford, Nebraska, the son of Henry and Anna Marie Steutor Wehling. Anton moved with the family to several locations in western Nebraska until he was ten years old. In 1930, the Wehling family moved to Iowa where they spent one year before the hot summer heat drove them to the eastern plains of Colorado, where they homesteaded in the Cheyenne Wells area in 1931. Tony and all of his siblings that were of school age attended the Catholic School in Cheyenne Wells and helped on the family arm. When Tony was in the seventh grade, he was stricken with a severe bone infection, affecting his right arm and leg. He spent 13 months in Colorado General Hospital in Denver fighting this terrible affliction. When he was finally released from the hospital, he returned home in a wheelchair. As time passed, he walked with the help of crutches and slowly became stronger. His leg was weak and always shorter than the other, and his left arm was scarred and weak, which left it in a position as if it were in a sling for the rest of his life. In spite of this difficulty, Tony recovered and lived a long life in farming and ranching in Montana, Nevada and the past nine years near Walsenburg. Tony enjoyed fishing, hunting and riding. Tony died at Parkview hospital in Pueblo January 10, 2000, at the age of 79. Tony never married, but he leaves to mourn his passing five sisters, Elizabeth Furr of Loveland, Justina (J.N.) Mousel of Cheyenne Wells, Rosa (Robert) Gilbert of South Dakota, Agnes Phillips of Portland, Oregon, and Julia (Vance) Steinert of Montana; and one brother, Frank (Annarose) Wehling of Wheatridge. Tony is also survived by many nieces, nephews and other relatives. He was preceded in death by two sisters and one brother, as well as his parents. A funeral mass was said Friday, January 14, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Cheyenne Wells with Father Bill Rhinehart officiating. Julie Elliott served as organist and the Sacred Heart Choir provided the vocal selections for the mass. Serving as casket bearers were Darrell Harwig, Eric Tucker, Dean Harvie, Mike Wehling, Greg Mousel and Will Mousel. All of Tony's many friends and nephews were honorary casket bearers. Interment was in the Fairview Cemetery in Cheyenne Wells. Funeral arrangements were under the direction of Brown Funeral Home.

She attended country school in their home village, where religious instruction was given during school time by the parish priest and their teacher. She stayed home to help with work and to learn sewing. When she came in contact with sisters she felt drawn to religious life but World War I had just ended and she was needed to help support the family. "I was very impressed," she said, "with the sisters' way of life, their good example, and their prayer life." When she spent several years with a family in Switzerland, she heard about Maryhouse in Einsiedeln, where candidates were accepted for American missions. She contacted Sister Cecilia at Maryhouse and was accepted for admission to the candidacy. She set sail for New York in August 1934, and entered Sacred Heart Convent that September 10th. She made profession as Sister Irmengard June 24, 1936. "A new world opened up to me," she commented. Illness has been a part of Sister Irmengard's life from the first years in the community, as she spent some time in the hospital and infirmary. About this, she has written, "God designed these plans -- perhaps some day we will understand their true value." That "some day" has now arrived for her. Sister's ministry years include one year in Gardner, CO, in housekeeping. Since 1943, she has been at the motherhouse. She worked in the vestment department until 1976 when fewer vestments were needed, and then began doing regular sewing for the sisters, her ministry until she retired to the Care Center in 1996. Sister Irmengard is survived by her Benedictine community and several nieces and nephews in Germany.
