Granville Zacharias – Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – January 14, 1877 – Death of Granville Zacharias – Mr. Granville Zacharias died in this city on Thursday morning from a wound in his leg, caused by the accidental discharge of his own pistol. The deceased kept a flock of sheep, and having lost some of them, was engaged in hunting the stray animals on the prairie this side of the Chico. When in a lonesome place several miles from any settlement, a rabbit jumped up in front of him and he drew his pistol to shoot it. The animal disappeared from view and Mr. Zacharias attempted to return the weapon – a large dragoon pistol, to the scabbard, neglecting to let down the hammer. The pistol was discharged, the ball entering the rear of the leg above the knee and ranging downward, how far is not known. The shooting happened in the morning and the deceased managed to walk about half a mile from the scene of (the) accident towards his camp. He was able to go no further and towards evening was discovered by one of his own herders who was also in search of sheep. Mr. Zacharias had had some high words with this man a few days before about some sheep that had been smothered, and the herder feared that the wounded man might die before any third party could arrive, and he (the herder) would be accused of having killed him. The herder gave Mr. Zacharias his blankets and coat and made him as comfortable as possible, while the former ran with all possible speed to the camp, secured a team and brought the unfortunate man in. The sufferer was brought to town so that he might have good surgical attendance. Mortification soon set in and in a few days death supervened. His physician would have amputated the wounded limb but the condition of the patient was such that certain death would have resulted. The deceased was a native of Baltimore, Maryland, his father being a clergyman somewhere in that state. He lived for many years in California where he met with reverses and came to Colorado in reduced circumstances. He purchased sheep from Dr. Smallwood and Mr. T. T. Hershberger, giving chattel mortgages on them in payment and was working very hard to pay his debts at the time of his death. The deceased had no family and through reverses in business his estate will be bankrupt.

Alyce has five surviving brothers and sisters, Helen Graham of Miles City, Montana, Malcolm “Buddy” Major, Jr. of Highland Meadows, New Mexico, Kenneth Major of Belen, New Mexico, Maria Major Linsey of Los Lunas, New Mexico and Johanna Kennedy Major of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Alyce, the eldest of eight children of Malcolm S. Major and Lily Field Major grew up on a large New Mexico ranch called “Rim Rock” near Wild Horse north of Datil, some seventy miles from the nearest town. Her maternal grandparents, Nelson A. Field (former New Mexico State Land Commissioner) and Ida M. Field came to New Mexico in the late 1860's, building a large ranch near Alamo, New Mexico, north of Magdalena. Her paternal grandparents were from New York City. Alyce was an accomplished horse woman, talented in all areas of running a ranch, able to put together a sumptuous meal in the kitchen after a full day working with cattle, horses, branding, and the multiple business tasks necessary to keep a ranch going. She was an avid gardener, a voracious reader, played the piano and enjoyed writing poetry. Growing up on an isolated ranch far from the city, schooling was always a challenge. Alyce was home-schooled, and also attended Mount Carmel Boarding School in Socorro and Loretto Academy in Santa Fe. She was sent to live with relatives in Greenville, South Carolina, attending school there and graduating from Clearwater High School, in Clearwater, Florida. After graduation, she married Charles Hill of Aiken, South Carolina and lived briefly in the East. Returning to New Mexico, Alyce married Harry Marmon of Laguna, New Mexico (deceased), and then spent most of her later years in Walsenburg, Colorado with her husband, Charles Zancanelli (deceased). When in recent years she became home and largely confined to her chair, Alyce became the “communications center' of her large family, responding to daily phone calls, keeping records of all family birth dates, marriages, addresses, etc., reading a wide range of daily newspapers, magazines, books, and keeping family informed of events, news, interesting items and practical information. Alyce was one of a dying breed of old time New Mexico ranch women, hugely resourceful and highly skilled across a range of home, ranch, and business tasks. Alyce held a deep faith in God, a love for her church, and received friendship and consolation from her San Clemente parish in Los Lunas. She will be deeply missed by her large family and friends. A visitation will be held at San Clemente parish, on Wednesday, July 18, at 12:30 p.m. with a Funeral Mass to be celebrated at 1 p.m. Interment will follow at San Clemente Catholic Cemetery.
