Nash, Robert H.
Robert H. Nash - Pueblo Chieftain - July 02, 2006 - Robert H. Nash was born Nov. 8, 1938 in Friday Harbor, Wash., and died on June 10, 2006 in Anacortes, Wash. His 67 years with us always brought adventure. After graduating in high school in 1956 then serving four years in the Air Force at Westover Air Force Base, Chicopee Falls, Mass., Robert and his young family came to Colorado Springs and established Nash Construction Company providing skilled and specialized carpentry and building to our region for 45 years. He grew up on the ocean working in the fisheries so the call of the sea also lured Robert into commercial salmon and halibut fishing in Kenai, Ark., and Puget Sound, Wash. These two passions allowed him to spend each year surrounded by the beauty of both mountains and sea. In addition, he partnered with family to create the Nash Brothers Buffalo Works Fishing Charter Company on San Juan Island, Wash. An avid sportsman, accomplished hunter and fisherman, Robert found great joy in many outdoor pursuits. From early experiences spear fishing under the docks, jump shooting ducks before school, training dogs for field work, trolling for salmon, jigging for cod, setting up decoys for duck and geese, walking the pivot or draw for pheasants, standing on the edge of a high mountain lake or stream, fly and bubble for trout or pursuing deer and elk, Dad was in his element. Spending time with friends at the annual salmon barbeque, visiting at the auction or estate sale, looking for a tractor to restore, playing poker or dice, finding another antique ranch implement or re-telling an exquisite story of recent or past conquest; his manner, delivery and enthusiasm would hold you in rapt attention. He probably read every good western written 2-3 times and provided the inspiration that the good guy always wins. He earned the Air Force Longevity Service Award and Good Conduct Medal and was a member of Pheasants Forever as well as the American Legion Post 163. He also participated in an experimental drug study for heart failure. Robert touched many lives as a son, brother, father, grandpa, uncle, cousin and reliable friend. He is preceded in death by his father, John; mother, Edna; brothers, William and Richard; sister, Patricia; sister-in-law, Shirley; brother-in-law, Ray; and daughter, Jennifer. He is survived by his sister, Nancy; sons, Steven and Jeremy; mother of his children, Elaine; daughter-in-law, Dawn; grandchildren, Connor and Kylie; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Two memorial services will be held. Thursday, June 22, 2006, 11:30 a.m., Valley Cemetery, Madden Lane, San Juan Island, Wash. A reception will follow at the Grange Hall, 1st Street, Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, Wash., from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. The second memorial service is on Saturday, July 8, 1 p.m. at Christ The King Lutheran Church, 950 Vindicator Drive, Colorado Springs, Colo.

Neave, R. E.
R. E. Neave Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain December 18, 1873 We are called upon to record another murder to the list of crimes. This time it comes from Wet Mountain Valley, about a mile and a half from Ula. The murdered man was Mr. R. E. Neave, president of the cheese factory company. The place of the murder was at Mr. Neave's own house. The murderer is a man by name of T. Price. This man Price went into the Valley in September last, and he has generally been looked upon as a future partner of Mr. Neave, rather than employee. He was a hard looking man, and intemperate. On this occasion Mr. Neave had been chiding Price for his drinking and sundry bad habits. Mr. Neave started out of the room for some reason or other, when Price called him back, and with a dirk stabbed him just under the left nipple. The knife undoubtedly entered his heart, for he died in less than five minutes. Mr. Neaves' housekeeper and several neighbors were present. Mr. Neave was a man of wealth, and highly respected. He was generous to a fault. He has no relatives in this country, being the only member of a large family of royal standing in England who is away from home.

John Nelson Leadville Carbonate Chronicle January 7, 1918 John Nelson Tributes to one of the most adept practical mining men in the district as well as one of the most respected, were paid by friends who formed an unusually large congregation when funeral services were held yesterday afternoon at 2 for the late John Nelson, late manager of the Mikado lease, whose advice and predictions led to opening of one of the best mining prospects in the Mikado territory. The services were held at the family home, 509 (?) East Third street, to which the mining man's body was brot Monday morning by his children, Robert and Miss Edith, after his death at Pueblo Saturday night last. The house was not large enough to accommodate but a portion of the congregation. Many friends stood in the street and some, seeing the crowded condition inside the house, remained in their carriages during the services, attending later the services at the grave in the Elks' Rest. The casket was buried in flowers, tributes from the family, the Elks and Eagles lodges, of which Mr. Nelson was an esteemed life member, his mining associates and scores of other friends. There were so many of these that they had to be taken to the cemetery later in a special sleigh. Funeral rites were conducted by the Elks lodge at the home and the graveside, in addition to the church services for which the Rev. Leroy Ellis of the Baptist church officiated. Two hymns, "Abide With Me" and "Meet Me There," the latter in the Swedish language reminiscent of Mr. Nelson's birthplace in Sweden, were sung by the Swedish Lutheran church choir, with Mrs. Albert Peterson playing the organ accompaniment. Singers in this choir were Mr. and Mrs. Fred Moosberg, Irene Bonthron, Charles Nordberg, Mrs. John Lundberg and Hjalmar Graff. John McSweeny, Chaplain Samuel Thomas, S. E. Abbott, W. A. S. Parker and John F. Quinn were the officiating Elks who conducted the lodge rites. At the end of the services, the cortege of carriages and sleighs which started from the house to convey attending friends to the Elks' Rest extended over three blocks as it drove down Third street and north on Harrison avenue. The Elks attending, a large delegation of Eagles and the choir led the procession in the carriages. Mr. Nelson was laid at rest beside the grave of his wife, who died six years ago. The pall bearers represented mining and lodge associates. They were John Harvey, George O. Argall, W. M. Harvey, George W. Casey, Chris Anderson and William Pearson. The Elks and the Rev. Ellis led committal rites at the graveside, and the choir sung "My Life is a Wave" in Swedish. To mining men who knew Mr. Nelson's ability as a practical mine manager and the great interest he took in mining affairs, to his two children and his friends who liked him for his sociable, helpful spirit, his death at the age of 52 years seemed only untimely far too soon. It followed a long sickness of a year of miner's consumption, for which there was no hope of recovery tho everything possible was done to effect it. Thru thirty years of experience in the district, Mr. Nelson had acquired an extensive knowledge of the mining industry of Leadville. He was foreman at the Mikado in 1896 and at the Penrose in 1901. In 1903 he began employment as superintendent of the Bassick mine at Silver Cliff. He engaged extensively in leasing also, especially on the Gold Basin and at the Mikado in 1909. It was thru his experience at the Mikado that he gained acquaintance with the geology of the ground there and the formations that are now being opened up. He had wanted to re-open the old Mikado shaft, and it was said he was the first mining man to see the great possibilities of the lower ore zone of this property. He is also given credit for interesting the Iron Silver Mining company in undertaking its present project at the Mikado, which is now considered one of the most promising prospects in the entire district. After the Iron Silver company opened up this property, Mr. Nelson was retained as manager of the Mikado lease in which he was interested with George A. Argall, manager of the company, John Harvey and George W. Casey, well-known mining men, and others. He held this position until sickness forced him to retire last fall.

Nelson, O. F.
O. F. Nelson Leadville Carbonate Chronicle October 21, 1912 Colorado State News Pueblo, Oct. 13. O. F. Nelson, one of the best known newspaper men of the west, familiarly known to all readers of the Pueblo daily papers as "Mike the Duck" a nom de plume under which he entertained the public with bright humor, died today at his home in this city. Mr. Nelson was taken sick last winter with typhoid fever, from the effects of which he never recovered. Although in ill health he continued in the service following his discharge from the hospital until last Tuesday, when he was forced to take to his bed again. He recovered sufficiently to take a short walk this morning and on his return suffered a hemorrhage and died in a few minutes. The deceased was a close follower of baseball and was the official scorer for the western league teams in this city. The excitement incident to the opening game of the world's series is believed to have contributed to his death. His office was filled with men anxious to learn the score and the dense smoke from cigars brought on a coughing spell and that night he was taken sick again. Mr. Nelson was thirty-five years old. He was born in a small town in Illinois and began his newspaper career on the Joplin Globe. He came to Pueblo eight years ago and soon after became city editor. He maintained this position until a few weeks ago when on account of his health he accepted a similar position on the Star-Journal, an evening paper.

Nettleton, Edwin S.
Edwin S. Nettleton - Yuma Pioneer - April 26, 1901 - Death of Edwin S. Nettleton, Pioneer Colorado Engineer - Denver, Colo., April 23. - Edwin S. Nettleton, a pioneer engineer of the state, died of heart disease at eight o'clock last evening at the Homeopathic hospital, after an illness of two weeks. During the greater part of that time he persisted in going ahead with his business. He was irrigation expert in the investigations of the United States Department of Agriculture. Last Wednesday he was compelled to give up and was brought from Cheyenne to Denver by C. T. Johnson. Edwin S. Nettleton was born in Medina, Ohio, in 1832. His first study was engineering and when he grew up to manhood his first work was in the oil fields of Pennsylvania, which he knew thoroughly. Later he removed to Michigan, and while there heard of the Greeley colony, then being organized by N. C. Meeker. He became a member of the colony and laid out the city of Greeley. He at once turned his attention to irrigation engineering, building both of the colony's irrigating canals. He was also interested in the Fort Collins Land and Improvement Company, which laid out the town of Fort Collins. He laid out Colorado Springs, which was founded by a colony, and Manitou, and a part of Pueblo. He was in charge of the construction of the Larimer and Weld canal, now having one of the largest system of reservoirs in the West and also of what is known as the English ditch near Denver, built by the Duff Improvement Company. His connection with these enterprises gave him a national reputation, and for the last thirty years he has been the foremost irrigation engineer of the country. His services have been in request in all parts of the arid west. Mr. Nettleton was state engineer under Governors Grant and Eaton and was a member of the first state capitol commission. When the United States government began the investigation of irrigation, Mr. Nettleton was made consulting engineer and acted in that capacity as long as the investigation lasted, from 1889 to 1893. After that he was sent to Europe two or three times to investigate the irrigation systems there, the manner of reforesting denuded tracts of land and to study the best methods of preventing destruction of forests. The last of these trips was made about two years ago, when he came back from Spain with many new ideas. For the last two years he has been irrigation expert with the United States Department of Agriculture. His last report was on the reservoir system of the Cache la Poudre valley. This year he had been devoting his time to the study of the management of canals and the losses by seepage. Mrs. Nettleton and one daughter survive him. His only son died in Cheyenne last fall. His daughter is the wife of W. N. Pickard, an attorney of Kansas City, formerly of Pueblo. She was last night notified of the death. It is likely that the body will be taken to Kansas City for interment.

Newell, Raymond L.
The Very Reverend Raymond L. Newell - Walsenburg World-Independent - March 6, 1944 - Crash Injuries Prove Fatal To Very Rev. R. L. Newell - Walsenburg's Beloved Priest Dies Of Head Injuries Early Sunday. The very Rev. Raymond L. Newell, pastor of the St. Mary church of this community, and newly-appointed director of Catholic Charities for the Diocese of Pueblo, died at 8 o'clock Sunday morning at the Lamme Brothers hospital here as the result of injuries incurred when his car overturned near Crow, 25 miles north of Walsenburg on Highway 85. The accident occurred about 3:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The local pastor, beloved by all who knew him, was returning to Walsenburg from Pueblo after conferring with church officials there in connection with his new diocesan post. His appointment as charities director, effective March 1, was announced officially by the Most Rev. Joseph C. Willging, Bishop of Pueblo, only last Friday, although plans for the establishment of the office had been progressing for several weeks. According to information gathered by Huerfano County Coroner Dan Unfug, who brought Father Newell to Walsenburg for treatment in the Unfug-Peet ambulance, the accident occurred between Crow and Greenhorn just north of the Rye junction in Pueblo County. Officials of that county also were notified as well as Patrolman Bob Lackey of the state highway patrol, who arrived on the scene shortly after the accident on his regular schedule. Although there were no eyewitnesses to the accident, the theory is advanced that Father Newell lost control of his car after becoming blinded by the late afternoon sun which is particularly bad on that section of road; it is also possible that he dozed off while driving. The machine turned over once and possibly more and was extensively damaged. Mrs. James Dick and Orman Dick, who were traveling somewhat behind the Father's car, saw the machine leave the road and plunge into the barrow pit; shortly thereafter Patrolman Lackey arrived and a call for help was sent immediately and the Unfug-Peet ambulance responded, bringing the priest to Walsenburg where he was admitted to the hospital. Father Newell was conscious after the accident and walked to the ambulance. Owing to shock, however, he was unable to tell much concerning the cause of the accident. Examination at the hospital revealed that he incurred a brain concussion and a fractured spine near the base of the skull. It was first believed that he would recover but he took a sudden turn for the worse early Sunday morning and died at 8 o'clock. The Rev. Hubert Newell, Father Newell's twin brother of Denver, was at his bedside when he died. He was notified shortly after the accident and arrived Saturday night. The loss of this familiar figure will be deeply felt throughout the community and the entire Pueblo diocese, since he had just completed arrangements to assume his new duties as charities director. He was born Feb. 16, 1904, in Denver. He was ordained May 21, 1932, and served here since 1937, for two years from 1940 as administrator and then as pastor following the retirement of Rev. John Liciotti. He made his philosophical and theological studies at the St. Thomas seminary, Denver, and after his ordination he studied in the University of Denver and Columbia University. He received the degree of Licentiate of Canon Law, J.C.L., in the Catholic University of America in Washington. Before his assignment to Walsenburg, he was assistant pastor of Sacred Heart church, Pueblo; Holy Family church, Denver; and the Cathedral parish in Denver. He is survived by two sisters, Mrs. William E. Jones and Miss Margaret Newell, both of Denver; and by three brothers Thomas J. Newell; the Rev. John T. Newell, S.J., a missionary now stationed in British Honduras; and the Rev. Hubert Newell of Littleton and Denver, who is Catholic superintendent of schools for Colorado. During his assignment in Walsenburg, Father Newell was very prominent in community activities, including the Huerfano county chapter, American Red Cross; the Huerfano County Association for Civilian Defense; Walsenburg Rotary club, Knights of Columbus and numerous other church organizations. Under his leadership great strides have been in the St. Mary parish. A large portion of the church and school debt has been retired. The property of the church expanded and improved, and a number of new activities introduced for the social and spiritual needs of the parishioners. Walsenburg World-Independent - March 6, 1944 - So Passes a great man - The death of the Very Rev. Raymond L. Newell, beloved of all who knew him, regardless of race or creed, regardless of calling or station, is a severe blow to the entire community and to all the Diocese of Pueblo. We who knew him would say his passing is untimely, but it is not for us to question the immutable will of God nor seek to change those things ordained. A valiant and generous heart is stilled. It was dedicated to the service of God and was bounded only by the needs of humanity. The troubles of all the problems of the whole community were his to solve. It is particularly significant that his death occurred as a result of an errand of mercy. He was returning from a conference with church officials in connection with the establishment of a wide program of charity throughout southern Colorado. He was giving from the seemingly almost boundless store of energy that was his, taking to his heart the aches and disappointments of all who were weak in spirit. His last act was thus in service of others. He was a busy man. He crowded work into his days until it seemed that human flesh could not endure it, and yet from the depths of a soul at peace and in harmony with God's will, he gathered fresh strength to go on to assume more responsibilities, to broaden his good works and to bring spiritual peace to those who needed it. He is now at rest; his work on earth is finished. A man of action, delay and temporizing aroused his impatience. He was the only man in this community who could accomplish things rapidly and efficiently by cutting across religious, social and political lines. This he could do because he recognized no artificial barriers erected by men. He saw in each mortal the spark of immortality and his goal was to fan it into full flame, to raise man above himself and his petty fallings. Thoughtless of self, regardless of the physical drain on his energies, he devoted himself to helpful, friendly service. He was quick to laugh and to share the joys of living with his friends, and equally to lend a helping hand and an overflowing heart to soften the blows of adversity. There is no home but that has felt the warmth of this great soul. From the aching void his loss has caused in our hearts will surely arise new hope. Somehow we like to believe that the Father is still with us in spirit, applauding our successes, sharing our defeats, encouraging us when we falter. His is the example of human service at its best. We will break faith with his memory if we allow those things to be left undone which should be done; we shall be denying him the shared joy of accomplishment if we allow his passing to close the book of progress. He has placed the task in our hands as we so frequently passed our problems into his. Our chance to repay him in small measure is here. The heart of the whole community goes out to the members of his parish, who feel loss most keenly. But regardless of creed we all feel the loss of a sincere man of God, a true friend, a great humanitarian and a staunch American.

He was graduated from the school of Pharmacy of the University of Kansas in 1900. In 1901 and 1902 he was associated with the Fawks and Wycoff Drug Co. in Walsenburg, Colorado. In 1903 he enlisted in the U.S. Navy as ship chemist on the U.S.S. Raleigh. He was honorably discharged from the Navy in January 1907. For one year after his discharge he was associated in business with Mr. R.R. LaRoque in Glasco, Kansas. In 1908 some time was spent on a tour of Old Mexico. Returning in 1909 to Walsenburg he took his old position in the Fawks-Wycoff Drug Store which held for a year. Then in July 1910 purchased from the widow Mrs. Laura Mathews, the half interest in the drug store of the recently deceased Dr. David Mathews, with son J. Glen, who was operating the store, the new firm was established. The name was changed to "City Pharmacy" and the rights to function as a Rexall Store were secured in a short time. On September 25, 1911, John William Nicol was united in marriage with Alice Delphine Dumas, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Willis Dumas of 605 High Street, Columbia, Missouri. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Elwang of the First Presbyterian Church of which Miss Dumas was a member. John Nicol was prominent in the political life of the community, a member of the Chamber of Commerce and Kiwanis Club, and remained the senior partner in the City Pharmacy until other interests caused him to dispose of his share in the firm to George Thurston, Aug. 1, 1932 after exactly twenty-two years in the drug business. Then Mr. Nicol with Andrew Merritt, John Welsby, and Dr. Mallet organized the Colorado and New Mexico Mining and Milling Co., and was placed in charge of the New Mexico mine. He returned home at Christmas time in 1932 and became associated with the Walsenburg Land Development Co. with Mr. James B. Tressler as partner.

He was a Scottish Rite Mason, a member of Eljebel Temple, No. 2 of Denver, Colo., from which he with a class reunited to organize the Southern Colorado consistory No. 3 and Al Kaly Temple. He was also a member of the Royal Al Kaly and Naomi Chapter No. 14 O.E.S. and Rocky Mountain Council No. 2 R. & S.M. The upward trend of his life might be epitomized in the words of the beautiful psalm: "As the heart panteth after the water brooks, as panteth my soul after thee; Oh God. Life to him was an adventure, a thing to be lived, not passively, but fully and deeply." Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Attre Smith, pastor of the M.A. Church of Glasco.

Niel, S. P. A.
Mr. S. P. A. Niel - Colorado Daily Chieftain May 17, 1872 - Terrible Accident A heart rending accident, and one which has cast a cloud of gloom over the entire community, occurred at the foot of Santa Fe avenue, about eight o'clock last evening. At the time mentioned, Mr. S.P.A. Niel, a fresh importation from the country, who had arrived in town for the purpose of enjoying a visit with his many friends, set out to cross the street just in advance of a large heavily loaded freight wagon, but missed his footing and fell directly beneath the juggernaut wheels, which passed directly over him, breaking his back and both of his legs. Hearing a shout of anguish, the driver attempted to stop his horses but did not succeed in doing so until the direful results we have described took place. Hearing the outcry, two or three gentlemen rushed to the spot, and seeing that the unfortunate victim was past all medical aid, one of them deliberately drew his revolver and shot a ball through his head, which ended his suffering and sent him to the happy hunting grounds. No inquest was considered necessary and none was held, but a colored individual was rewarded with fifty cents to haul the body to the bone yard and erect over it a slab, bearing the simple yet touching inscription, "died of over confidence."

Albert Noble Colorado Public Defender June 26, 1896 William Holt, Albert Noble, and Deonicio Romero, Trinidad (Las Animas County). WW. Hanging/Broken necks. These three codefendants were convicted of the felony murder of a Trinidad police officer, John Solomon. In July 1895, Romero, age twenty-one, and Noble, age thirty-four, became acquainted with Leonardo Martinez and Pedro Baca, who were being held in the Las Animas County Jail pending trial for murder. Romero was serving a jail sentence for assault, having served several previous sentences for petty offenses. Noble had been arrested for a robbery in New Mexico, having previously served a seven-year sentence for robbing a post office. Upon release from jail, Romero, Noble, and a third man, William Holt, age twenty-one, conspired to rob the Horse Shoe Gambling Club in Trinidad to secure funds for Martinez and Baca's defense. Several others, including Martinez's mother, also assisted with the scheme. Officer John Solomon discovered and foiled the robbery. Solomon first struggled with Holt before Noble shot him in the back. Holt was the first person arrested; a gun left at the scene, which he purchased from a local pawnbroker a few days previously, tied him to the crime. Upon interrogation by the authorities, Holt confessed, and Romero quickly confirmed his story. Noble was tried first, followed by a joint trial for Holt and Romero. The convictions were affirmed on appeal. The three were executed in the first triple execution in Colorado's history. The men were executed in alphabetical order, in private, with all details prior to the executions kept secret. Originally the men were supposed to be hanged in the order of their culpabilityNoble, Romero, and then Holtbut Holt was distressed that he "was called first." Notably, Holt had to be carried to the death chamber.

Nolan, John M.
John M. Nolan - Yampa Leader - July 3, 1914 -Three Die, Four Hurt - Pueblo -Three men were killed , four were injured, while several others whose bodies have not been recovered, are believed to have been buried in the debris, when the engine of an extra freight train comprising thirty-two cars and caboose left the rails on the main line of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad near the Goodnight ranch, six miles west of Pueblo, and plowed into an embankment. The wreck is attributed by railroad officials to the spreading of the rails, caused by their expansion under intense heat. A repair crew was at work on the track, over which trains were passing frequently, when the accident occurred. The dead: John M. Nolan, engineer; crushed to death in his cab. Jose Perez, thirty, crushed to death in refrigerator car. Juan Sevalues, 23; crushed to death in refrigerator car. The injured: O. V. Hipps, fireman; scalded by escaping steam and bruised in jumping to safety from cab. Charles Barone, thirty, Shawnee, Okla., ribs broken and possible internal injuries. Andrew Alcon, twenty-eight, Lucerne, N.M.; bruised and possible internal injuries. George Lowe, thirty-five, member of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, Sparks, Nev.; broken leg. Only about half of a band of twenty-five tramps who were riding the train toward the wheat fields of Kansas have been accounted for. It is thought likely that an examination of the wreckage of the eight cars which followed the engine from the rail and were demolished may reveal more dead. None of the present list of known dead were members of the train crew except the fireman and the engineer. The body of the engineer was dug from his cab about four hours after the crash. The force of the impact of the giant freight locomotive against the soft dirt embankment forced one side of the engine into the slope for several feet. Nolan's skull was crushed and his body was completely buried.
Margaret Nolan - Pueblo Chieftain - June 15, 2004 - Margaret Nolan went to be with her Lord on June 12, 2004. Preceded in death by her husband, John Nolan Jr.; and son, Donald Nolan. Survived by her sons, Robert (Verna) Nolan, Ron (Betty) Nolan, both of Pueblo; sister, Ann Perry; and sister-in-law, Flora Nolan, both of Pueblo; grandchildren, Warren (Rosalie) Nolan, Doug Nolan, Lounell (Mark) Cox, Greg (Lorraine) Nolan, Stuart Nolan, Dawna Nolan Dwyer, Michael (Char) Zupan, Ronda Delisa and Michael Nolan. Also survived by 10 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren. She was a member of Holy Family Catholic Church. She was wonderfully, beautifully and simply grandma. She was grandma forever it seems. Of course, she was grandma to her grandchildren, but she also was grandma to her friends, neighbors, nurses, and in the later years of her life even her three sons gave in and called her grandma. She was the best of everything the word grandma implied. Except she wasn't soft, round or particularly cuddly. She weighed, maybe all of 80 pounds, but it was all heart and love except for the simple dresses, stockings, and heels she wore ever single day of her life. She must have gone straight from diapers to dresses. In her wedding picture she is pretty, and petite with beautiful doe like eyes. No wonder that my grandfather looks so cocky and self-assured in the same picture. Grandma and grandpa were happily, crazily and beautifully in love. It's odd, but while the rest of the world called her grandma, my grandpa called her mom. I doubt they ever spent a night apart except when, according to family legend, grandpa spent a night in jail for fishing where he wasn't supposed to be fishing. He was after big, but illegal trout. Fishing stories abound in our family, and while grandma seldom went fishing with grandpa and his boys, she always packed us lunches in brown paper bags. Each paper bag included such luxury items as homemade chocolate chip cookies, potato chips and Pepsi. Yes, these were luxury items. My grandpa died in 1971, and for 30 some years, my grandma has dreamed of joining her beloved Johnny in heaven. Grandma was blind, she was blind for nearly 60 years, and most of us never remember her being any other way. But, she did not live a life of darkness, she lived a life of pure, unalloyed light. Grandma's love was not a compound, it was not mixed with any other chemical, it was this warm, all enveloping thing that loved everything and everyone in its path. It's no accident that Mother Theresa always reminded us of grandma. Both were small, tiny but tough, Slavic women who were blind. Blind to the surface differences and imperfections of people, but alive to the inside beauty of people. According to grandma, we are all angels; we are all children of God. When some of her grandchildren decided to become hippies in the sixties, estranged from our own parents, grandma was blind to the length of our hair and went right on loving us. At the end of every visit with grandma, she would envelop you in her strong, bony arms and give you a big, sloppy wet kiss. There was no escaping those arms or that kiss; her love moved amazingly fast. Grandma was not only about invisible, abstract love; she also was about things you could smell and stick in your mouth like potica, crappie, struklji, kolbassi, and strudel. No one could roll out thinner potica dough. When you were positive that the potica dough could not be rolled out any thinner or it would disappear, she would continue right on rolling until the circle of dough would double in size. She wielded her long wooden rolling pin like some kind of weapon. Her struklji, Slovenian dumplings filled with bread crumbs, toasted in butter, were divine gifts from the old country. We would gorge on them until we were sick. Just as grandma was the repository for family birthdays, anniversaries and deaths she was a walking, talking recipe book. She must have committed the Slovenian cookbook, "Woman's Glory: The Kitchen" to memory. Last week, as she lay dying in her hospital room, she went into great detail about how to make soup. How fitting that this would be one of her final lucid moments. Last week the desire, the urgency to join her beloved Johnny in heaven proved too much. She couldn't see, hear or swallow, so she consciously chose to leave this world for another world. Grandma we love you. As your children we should know something about love. Donations may be made in memory of Margaret to the American Federation of the Blind. Graveside service, 2 p.m. Thursday, June 17, 2004, at Imperial Memorial Gardens.

Victor Nunez - Pueblo Colorado Chieftain - March 20, 1879 Nunez Hanged for the Murder of Luis Rascone First Judicial Hanging in Pueblo County Prisoner Refused to Confess His Crime Some Account of One of the Most Brutal Murders in the History of Colorado Large Gathering of Men, Women and Children Everything Managed Decently and in Order The first judicial execution which ever took place in Pueblo county occurred on Friday afternoon, the subject being Victor Nunez, a Mexican, who was tried at the December term of the district court for the murder of Luis Rascone, also a Mexican. Luis Rascone was a man of some property, and for whose wife Nunez entertained an unlawful passion. To obtain the woman and Rascone's property Nunez murdered Rascone, under circumstances brutal and revolting in the extreme. The Murder The circumstances of the murder, as related by the wife of the murdered man, his aunt and a little Indian girl, who was in the house at the time, are of the most revolting character. In her testimony before the coroner's jury Rascone's wife made the following statement: "I was married fifteen years ago to Luis Rascone. That is his body and it has the same clothing on in which he was murdered. I and my husband were in Pueblo and Victor Nunez complained of being a little sick and asked my husband to let him have a horse to come out to our house. The next day when we came home my husband sent him a horse to come out with my son Francisco. Victor Nunez came to our house about supper time and told us that he had left my son at a ball in Pueblo. He brought a lot of whisky along and asked my husband to take some whisky, and my husband said 'I would not drink whisky except with my friends.' Then Victor Nunez told my husband to come outside and I thought they were going to talk about the Bartels security. Going out Victor Nunez told the child and woman not to come out and shut the door. Leonora, the other woman present, asked me what was going on and ran out of doors and took the little girl along and I followed. When I got out where my old man was I saw him lying on the ground and Victor Nunez sitting on his breast cutting his throat with a knife with a black handle. I was scared to death, hardly knowing what I was doing, and pulled Victor away, and in so doing his hand was cut. I found out his hand was cut after going into the room. Victor Nunez came after a while and asked for a pick and shovel, and I was very much scared and then told him where they were. Victor Nunez slept in the house that night. He buried Luis Rascone that night in the corral." Finding the Corpse The body was afterwards removed from the corral, the murderer fearing it might be discovered if left there, and buried in the earthen floor of the house. The building, which was a jacel with a mud roof, was then thrown down upon the grave and the wood hauled to town and sold for fuel. At the inquest the woman showed the coroner where to dig and the body of Rascone, dressed as he was when murdered was soon found. The head fell from the body when it was exhumed and the woolen shirt worn by the deceased was stiff with dried blood. Discovery and Flight It was supposed that when Rascone disappeared, that he had left the country to avoid punishment upon a charge of cattle stealing, which had been made against him. Nunez took possession of the dead man's wife and property, brought them to Pueblo, remained her all winter, and in the spring departed for Georgetown. Nobody at that time seemed to have any suspicion that Rascone had been murdered, but somehow or other, "murder will out." The little Indian girl above mentioned was left at the residence of Mr. John Irvine, on the Fontaine, and when Nunez and the woman had departed, she told the story of the murder. Nunez was notified by a relative of his here that the authorities were after him, and he fled and was captured, only after a great deal of trouble. Rascone was one of the better class of Mexicans and was possessed of cattle, wagons, horses, etc. The Trial On the trial of Nunez some rank perjury was indulged in by one of his Mexican friends, who swore that Nunez was sick in his house from the third to the sixteenth of the month, when the murder was committed, when it was distinctly proved by a reputable witness that Nunez was at work for the latter during several days of that time. After a patient hearing, during which the prisoner was defended by excellent counsel, he was found guilty of murder in the first degree. The Sentence On Thursday afternoon, January 2d, Nunez was brought into court. The prisoner was escorted into court by Under Sheriff Smythe and Deputy Sheriffs Studzinski and Craig. Nunez did not appear to be at all concerned. Judge Henry directed Nunez to stand up. The Court Do you understand English? Prisoner I understand only a few words. C Is Victor Nunez your correct name? P It is. C What is your age? P Fifty-seven years. C Where were you born? P In Old Mexico. C How long have you been in Colorado? P Nine years. Deputy Sheriff Studzinski then interpreted. C How long did you know Luis Rascone? P I knew him six years by seeing him. C You have been found guilty by the jury in your case of premeditated murder. If you have anything to say proceed. P I have nothing to say. C Do you understand the penalty attached to the crime of which you have been convicted? P I do not know but will receive any sentence that you may impose upon me. C The statute provides that you shall hang by your neck until you are dead. If you have anything to say you can speak. P I would rather wait until the time comes and say it then. I know everybody has to die. Life is like a candle that is lighted, any one can blow it out. All that the witnesses swore to was false. All that hurt me is that I have no money and no influence. I will die like a man because I know that I die wrongfully. I know the witnesses swore falsely. I can swear before God in heaven that the witnesses swore falsely. I can't get out because I have no influence and no money. C I cannot say whether the witnesses swore falsely or not. P I have a man here who knows I am not a murderer. I am a working-man. C You had a man here who swore that you were sick in his house from the third to the sixteenth of the month in which the murder was committed, and a short time afterwards, Mr. Thomas testified that you were at work for him a part of that time. P When the man was on the stand he was frightened and made a mistake in the time. The indictment charges me with having committed this murder on the tenth of the month. I bring God to witness that I was sick in the house on that day. I will die with the hope that God will help the jury and the witnesses who swore against me. C I hope you are not guilty of the crime charged. I am in hopes that you may not have to appear before your maker with this stain upon your hands. P I am going to die clear and ask and want no pardon. I will come to the feet of God who knows all things. I have nothing more to say now, but would like time before my death to make some remarks in public. I would like to see my friends, children and other relatives to tell them something. C The sheriff will allow your family to visit you. The judge then proceeded to pronounce the death sentence upon Nunez as follows: But one alternative is left for me. It is a hard matter for me to perform the duty which I am now obliged to do. It seems that I have been particularly unfortunate in my present position in having this duty to perform in so many cases. (P I have no fault to find with you.) Since I have occupied the position of district judge I have been required to pronounce the death sentence five times. It is a trying duty but I must perform it. (P I know well that men in your position must do their duty.) The sentence of the court is that you be taken from the bar of the court to the county jail from whence you came, by the sheriff of the county, there to remain in confinement until Friday, the 24th of January, and from thence be taken by the sheriff of the county between the hours of one o'clock in the afternoon and three o'clock of that day to some convenient place to be prepared by the sheriff, there to be hanged by the neck by the sheriff until you are dead, and may the Lord have mercy on your soul. During the whole of his conversation with the judge and even when the sentence of death was pronounced upon him Nunez showed no agitation whatever. His face retained its chronic frown and his voice never trembled. Judge Henry was visibly affected. Nunez has pure Spanish features, and seems to have more intelligence than the average Mexican. A Reprieve Through the efforts of George Q. Richmond, Esq., the prisoner's attorney, Gov. Pitkin granted him a reprieve until March 14th, his attorney thinking that some additional evidence could be produced in the prisoner's favor. Mr. Richmond also made vigorous efforts to have the prisoner's sentence commuted to imprisonment for life, but the case was such an exceedingly rascally one that the governor refused to interfere further. The Gallows The gallows was erected in a small basin in the hills and short distance north of the city, near the cemetery, and consisted of a platform about sixteen feet square, surrounded by a railing and two posts, with a cross-beam rising from the south end of the platform to a height of about twelve feet. Directly under the beam was the drop, about five feet square, so arranged that it could be made to fall by a gentle pull on a small rope at the rear of the platform. To prevent the swinging of the drop after falling, a weight was attached thereto by a rope. The gallows was constructed by Messrs. Winneka and Merrill, of this city, and worked in a manner highly satisfactory. Previous to its being used Sheriff Price carefully tested it with a weight far greater than that of the prisoner, and it was found to be in excellent working order. The rope used was manufactured of unbleached hemp, half an inch thick, and was made for the purpose in St. Louis. It did not yield in the slightest degree when the weight of the prisoner was placed upon it. The gallows was surrounded by a rope stretched at a distance of some sixty feet from the structure, inside of which the guards were stationed, armed with double barreled shot guns and revolvers. The Execution During the entire morning people from all parts of the country flocked into the city, and by the time announced for the execution a crowd of some twelve or fifteen hundred people surrounded the gallows. Among them we were astonished and pained to see so many females and a horde of children, from five years old upward. The morbid curiosity that prompts such desires ought not to be gratified and we hope that the next execution that occurs in Pueblo will be a private one. At half past seven in the morning the deceased partook of the sacrament of the Lord's Supper, administered by Father Montanralli, in the presence of the prisoner's relatives and C. Q. Richmond, Esq., and lady. At 1:15 P.M. Nunez was brought from the jail and placed in an express wagon, and surrounded by armed guards was conveyed to the gallows. At 1:30 the party arrived on the ground, and Nunez ascended the gallows attended by Father Montanralli, Sheriff Price and Deputy Sheriffs Smythe and Craig. His legs were shackled and he was seated upon a box upon the trap while his legs and arms were being pinioned and the shackles removed. The death warrant and reprieve were then read to him by Sheriff Price and translated into Spanish by Mr. A. P. Berry. The prisoner was accompanied upon the platform by his brother Henry Nunez and his son-in-law Jose Sanchez. He trembled considerably at first but after a little while recovered his composure and the only appearance of agitation was a slight quiver in his voice while he was making a rambling statement in Spanish which was translated into English for the benefit of the crowd. The prisoner then knelt while a prayer was offered by his spiritual advisor. At 2:08 Sheriff Price placed the noose around the prisoner's neck and adjusted the black cap. Another prayer was offered and at 2:11 Sheriff Price sprung the trap and Victor Nunez was launched into eternity. The prisoner died without a struggle, his neck having apparently been broken at once in accordance with his frequently expressed desire. When the drop fell a number of Mexican women who were standing near the gallows gave a loud wail very much as the Indians mourn for their dead. Drs. Thombs, Ashcom and Craven were posted below the platform and gave the following report of the action of Nunez' pulse: First minute 44, second 78, third 85, fourth 70, fifth 56, and then death. At 2:20 the corpse was cut down by Deputy Sheriff Smythe, the physicians having pronounced Nunez dead. The body was placed in a plain coffin and delivered to his relatives. The features of the deceased were not much distorted. Nunez's Statements The deceased made several statements previous to his death all of which deny his guilt. The evidence adduced at the trial, however, is so conclusive that no possible doubt can exist as to his having murdered Rascone. The following statement was given to Sheriff Price: In the year 1877 I engaged to work for J. J. Thomas on his ranch. One day going down the Greenhorn river with Mr. Thomas' stock I went to Rascone's house. I remained there some time. When I started to go away, they asked me to come again and make them a long visit. One Sunday after this I called at the house and had a long conversation and after that Rascone's son came to me and asked me to loan them what money I could as they were in trouble and Rascone was indicted. I asked money of Mr. Thomas. He gave me an order for $15. I afterwards went to the house and asked if the $15 would be of any use to them. He answered yes, I am as grateful for that as I would be if it was $50. They then told me to bring my clothes and they would wash them. Finally Rascone's son came for the clothes and at this time remarked that his father needed me very much. I went to see what they wanted. He said he wanted to go to freighting and desired my son to work for him, saying he would take care of him as well as if he remained with me. I sent my son to him. Afterwards I went to the place where they were at work. Rascone then said to me I am going to the San Juan to get a man to assist me in my business. In the meantime I want you to come and look after the boys. He went and on his return said he had had bad luck. They had taken his horse from him. He told me all his adventures. I remained a good while with him on this occasion. I didn't see him again until I went to Pueblo to the election to work for Mr. Thomas who was running for sheriff. Then I went to him to get my son to go to Thomas' to take my place while I was at Pueblo. I came to Pueblo and worked zealously for Thomas, using strong arguments in his favor. My son remained with Thomas nineteen days at the round up while I was in Pueblo. Thomas, when he testified, could not tell how many days I was absent from his ranch. When in Pueblo, Rascone's son came to town to sell some cheese and at that time told me that his father had gone to Culebra and asked me when I was going to return to the Greenhorn. I replied as soon as I recovered from my sickness. Two days after this, the boy came to town again and we returned together to Louis Rascone's house. Rascone's wife then told me that her husband had gone to Culebra and that they wanted my son, as the stock was damaging the corn, and that I had better come and harvest the grain as the stock was damaging it, and that her husband would not be back and had been absent nearly a month then. By reason of this request from her I gave up my place at Thomas' and commenced to harvest the grain on Rascone's land. After the harvesting was over, in accordance with an understanding, we all came to Pueblo, she promising if I would live with her she would be as a wife to me, and said she had no hopes of her husband. She wrote to her brother to find out what detained her husband, and received an answer saying that her husband had not been seen. I had no reason to doubt her, and not doubting her, I had no hesitation in living with her. One day while in the hills cutting wood Rascone's son came and told me Bartels had attached the stock. I went to see Bartels and agreed with him to have the stock turned over to me and I would pay him forty-two dollars. He said he was not in a hurry for the money until the time came. A friend wished me to go to Fall River, saying it was a good place to work; the woman said she would go too. We went and I commenced to cut wood. One day I came to the house, found this woman in conversation with the man. His conversation did not appear good and I left, so that they might finish their contract. About this time Mr. Price came to claim $110. I did not have the money so I left the place to keep out of the calaboose. Had I taken a part in this murder I never would have been seen in this part of the country. I write this in the same spirit I would had I laid hands on this man. It does me the same good, for where I go all will have to go. Victor Nunez. After all I feel a great satisfaction in being able to embrace the opportunity of reconciliating my soul, and that I have not been deprived of God's mercy. I hope by my sincere repentance that I will be pardoned. I ask of my God that all persons who have been in opposition to me may be pardoned, for by me they are pardoned. The following statement was made to his counsel: The first and last statement of Victor Nunez to his counsel, G. Q. Richmond, made March 10th, 1879, after being informed that he had nothing to hope from the executive of the state: Question Did you kill Louis Rascone? Answer I never put my hands on him. Q Did you at any time use a knife on the throat of Louis Rascone? A I never used a knife on him. Q Did you ever use any instrument on Louis Rascone which caused his death? A No sir; I never used anything on him. Q Were you in any way directly or indirectly, connected with the death of Louis Rascone? A No, sir. Q Did you know of the death of Louis Rascone on the 4th day of October, 1877? A No sir; I never knew it. Q Are you innocent of this crime? A I am, and this will be my statement on the last day, last hour and last moment of my life. Q Do you know who killed Louis Rascone? A No sir; I do not. Q Have you anything further to state now? A No; except I think you have done all you could do for me. My time has come to die, and I shall die like a man. My race will never have reason to blush for me, by reason of any act of cowardice on my part. Another Statement Statement of Victor Nunez, to be made public by his request on the day of execution by his counsel: "In the name of God Almighty I confess publicly the truth, that I am entirely innocent of the crime with which I am charged. My only consolation at this moment is that as Jesus Christ, the son of God, being the innocence itself, was falsely accused, ignominiously betrayed, scourged and condemned before the tribunals of this world in quite a similar manner as I have been accused, confined to jail and finally condemned to death for a crime of which I am innocent. This very moment, I, Victor Nunez, before the presence of God Almighty, the first judge, I feel as a good Christian very thankful to Divine Providence for having permitted and granted to me such a punishment and a death to expiate in a solemn manner all the sins of my past life. Thank God that my spiritual father did all he could to save my soul, and my attorney did all he could to save my life. God will reward them and I hope they will pray for me after my death. I declare also that I give full pardon to all who did directly or indirectly contribute to my death. I pardon them, as I wish with all my heart Almighty God will give me full pardon for all my sins. I am in perfect conformity with the holy will of God and hope that my soul shall enjoy eternal peace after this moment of death, and I pray good and honest people will offer their prayers to Almighty God for the eternal welfare of my soul. And now finally good bye to all my friends and all my acquaintance until we shall meet all together to find the justice before the tribunal of Almighty God. Victor Nunez. Rumors of Rescue On Friday morning Sheriff Price received a telegram from Missouri, from Sheriff Starr, who took Boone, the horsethief, back to that state from Pueblo a few days since, stating that Boone had informed him that during his stay in the Pueblo county jail he had learned that a plot was organized among the Mexicans here to rescue the prisoner on the night before the day appointed for the execution. The sheriff also learned from other sources that something was going on among the Mexicans in their haunts on the outskirts of the city. A strong guard was accordingly organized and armed with double barreled shot guns. A number of the guards were stationed in the court house, while a few were placed inside the jail. Every arrangement was made to give the rescuing party a warm reception, but the long hours of the night passed away without anything occurring to alarm the vigilant guard. The plotters for some reason abandoned their scheme, having discovered possibly that shot guns are not healthy things to contend with. Remarks Sheriff Price is worthy of all credit for the excellent manner in which every detail of the execution was carried out. His arrangements were all perfect, and with the aid of his deputies were carried out to the letter, so that not the least accident occurred. It seems to us that the reading of the death warrant to a prisoner after he has arrived on the scaffold is a relic of barbarism which ought to be dispensed with now-a-days. In this case the reading of the warrant and the reprieve consumed about twenty minutes, it being necessary to translate the documents into Spanish, and only prolonged the misery of the unhappy man for that length of time. The horrible details of Nunez's crime were well known to the public and hence but little sympathy was expressed for him at the execution except by his immediate relatives. The careless crowd pressed against the ropes and stood up in carriages and wagons as at a horse race and but few of those present seemed to feel the solemnity of the occasion. In accordance with the wish of the deceased Deputy Sheriff Studzinski was the last person with whom he conversed, that officer taking Nunez's pinioned hand just before the drop fell and bidding him good-bye.

James Nunnaley Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph December 30, 1973 Third Lawman Slain Three lawmen were killed in Colorado last week, two killing suspects are dead, and law officials are looking for two suspects in the first incident. The dead law officials are: 1. Colorado State Patrolman Thomas Carpenter, 31, murdered in his patrol car Thursday morning in Denver. Carpenter, father of three children, had served on the patrol since 1968. He was the fifth patrolman to be slain in the line of duty. 2. Otero County Deputy Sheriff Larry Smith, 23, was gunned down Friday by a 12-gauge shotgun blast as he went to a home in La Junta to answer a disturbance call. He was a 1963 graduate of La Junta High School, and unmarried. He was the son of La Junta fire chief, Wayne Smith. 3. Pueblo Police Officer Thomas M. Hanson, 36, was killed when he stopped at a store to buy a carton of milk and came upon a holdup in progress. Investigators said that Patrolman Carpenter was shot with his own service revolver. He was shot four times in the back of the head. Denver police found his body seated upright in his patrol car, which was parked in the rear of an apartment complex in the Monbello area of northeast Denver. Denver police questioned Robert L. Chance, 18, of Aurora Friday regarding the slaying but later released him after he took a lie detector test. Chance had been arrested on a fugitive warrant for a traffic violation. Police chief Art Dill said the youth was questioned in Carpenter's death because his appearance resembled the rough description of one of two suspects in the case. District Attorney Dale Tooley said homicide detectives were pressing their investigation of the homicide, but had "no suspect against whom they expected to file charges." Officials believe Carpenter was kidnapped by his assailants prior to his death. Although there were no witnesses to the shooting, motorists reported seeing a cruiser in the vicinity with two young men accompanying the officer in the car. Keith said Carpenter is thought to have been stopped on the Denver-Boulder Turnpike at Broadway about 9 a.m. Carpenter, who had been with the patrol five years and was stationed in the Broomfield district, normally patrolled Interstate 25 north of Denver. State Patrol officers will act as pallbearers for the 1 p.m. Monday funeral at the Bethel Temple, with the Denver Police Department providing the color guard. Representatives of numerous other Colorado law enforcement agencies also are expected to be in attendance. Deputy Smith died in the backyard of the Otero home in an exchange of gunfire with James Nunnaley, 21, who La Junta police officials said had earlier in the day threatened to "kill a couple of cops." The deputy was able to return the fire before he died and hit Nunnaley, said police. Nunnaley never regained consciousness after the shooting and died in a Pueblo hospital. Funeral services for Smith are scheduled Monday in La Junta. Hanson, the Pueblo policeman unexpectedly walked into the middle of a holdup and was shot to death. The gunman also was killed when the patrolman's partner fired three shots through a plate glass window. Police Chief Bud Willoughby said Bernard Meehan, 19, of Pueblo, died 3 ½ hours after the incident at Parkview Hospital. Meehan, who never regained consciousness, was hit three times in the back. Willoughby said Hanson and his partner, Patrolman James Askay, 29, had driven up to a 7-11 store at 2 a.m. so that Hanson could buy a carton of milk. Askay remained outside in the car. Hanson walked in, found no one around and apparently was about to walk outside again when a gunman emerged from behind a counter and ordered him to lie on the floor. Authorities said Hanson may have made a move for his service revolver as the gunman approached him. The bandit then fired once, morally wounding the officer. Askay fired three times through a glass window at the gunman with each shot hitting its mark. Police said a second man apparently involved in the holdup drove away when he saw the officers. He drove to a nearby Catholic Church where he asked a priest for help, but fled on foot when the priest called police. The killings brought these comments Saturday from law officials in Colorado Springs: Dist. Atty. Bob Russel said, " State patrolmen are very susceptible as they usually stop people for traffic violations and are unaware of potential problems they may be confronting. Most police throughout the nation are in great danger when they are handling disturbance calls dealing with domestic relations which is what happened in La Junta." This of course also applies to the sheriff's office. Russel said that "in Colorado we have been lucky judging from national figures of officers who have been murdered." He added that he did not believe there was going to be a rash of police killings. Police Lt. Loren Downing said that the three shootings of law enforcement officers in the 48-hour period in the state was enough to make each officer take a second look at his actions for safety reasons. A bus load of Colorado Springs policemen is expected to attend the funerals of the officers in La Junta and Pueblo. At least a car load of off duty officers is expected to attend the funeral of the state patrol officer in Longmont, Downing said. Sergeant H. J. Schafer, El Paso County Sheriff Patrol Commander, said that his deputies have been briefed and alerted to begin taking extreme caution at all calls with major emphasis placed on caution taking when answering family disturbances. He said that the most crucial times of police killings are in the first seven seconds after an officer arrives at the scene, and in a 7 to 22 foot range.
