Miller, Myron J.
Hand-dated 5 November 1940 
Myron J. Miller’s Funeral To Be Held Wednesday 
Funeral services will be held at 3:30 o'clock Wednesday afternoon at Howe mortuary for Myron Jay Miller, widely known Boulder county resident, who died
Monday, Nov. 4, at the sanitarium from injuries sustained in an automobile accident Oct. 25. Boulder Lodge 45, A. F. and A. M., will have charge of the services, assisted by Rev. Angus C. Hull, pastor of the First Baptist church.  Mount Sinai Commandery, No. 7, Knights Templar, will provide an escort. He was also a member
of Royal Arch Masons and the Eastern Star and their members will attend the funeral.

Mr. Miller was born in Nevada, Mo., April 1, 1880.  With his parents, he moved to Lyons, Kan., when he was but a child.  In 1883 they moved to Colorado going to Gold Hill from Denver. Most of Mr. Miller’s life was spent in mining.  In 1909 he met and married Jessie Colleen Atterbury. To this union four children were born.  They are Charles Benton Miller, deceased; Dora Colleen Ferguson, Lillian Gertrude Helburg and Myron J. Miller.

Mr. and Mrs. Miller moved to California in 1918 and stayed until 1930 when the Colorado mountains called him back.  He mined but a short time after his return. He was at one time in line for offices in Masonic bodies but declined to serve though urged to take an active part. He was popular and his death came as a shock. The accident was not reported to Sheriff Richart until Sunday afternoon, the latter official said Monday, and when he called on Mr. Miller could not secure a coherent account because of Miller’s serious condition.  Officers are still investigating.  Taken from Elmer Curtis Swallow scrapbooks.

WHEELER, Lillian Beckley
10 November 1999
Denver, Colorado
The Denver Rocky Mountain News Wednesday, Nov. 10, 1999 - Page 18B Wheeler, pioneer female Colorado barber, at age 99 By Bob Jackson - News Staff Writer Lillian Beckley WHEELER, thought to be the first black woman to get a barber's license in Colorado, died Friday in Colorado Care Manor after a long illness. She was 99. Memorial services will be Saturday at 10 a.m. at Fairmont Cemetery. Mrs. WHEELER, who was born in Pontotoc, Miss., on July 6, 1900, and educated there, moved to Boulder with her husband, Thomas Mason WHEELER, and their two children in September 1924. Her husband died Sept. 18, 1979. Mrs. WHEELER had a beautician's certificate from a Chicago beauty college. She said she did hair for most of her the 100 or so blacks who lived in Boulder during that time. Mrs. WHEELER, who earned her license Feb. 3, 1943, retired from barbering 16 years ago. She sold the shop bearing her name in the Dahlia Shopping Center to Stanley STEWART whom she trained, in 1983. "When I started working for her I was working three jobs trying to make it," said STEWART. "She told me to quit the other jobs and to work here and if I concentrated on it, I won't get rich, but would make a decent living." STEWART said Mrs. WHEELER helped him through tough times. "When my mother passed, she told me don't worry about a thing, you still have a mom," he said. During an interview last year, Mrs. WHEELER said she liked caring for hair. "I like pampering with hair and making it look good," she said. "I wouldn't enjoy cutting a man's hair all off." Mrs. WHEELER didn't remember how many haircuts she gave during her 40 years of barbering. "But I do know if I had the dollars from giving volunteer haircuts in hospitals and to sick people at home, I wouldn't have to worry about nothing the rest of my life," she said during the interview. "Barbering was an excellent life and I made a lot of friends." So many friends, in fact, that Denver Mayor Wellington WEBB proclaimed a day in honor of her98th birthday. KDKR-AM (1510) honored her on Mother's Day as Mother of the Year. "Mrs. WHEELER has been an entreprtuer, inspiration, role model and mentor of many citizens of the city and county of Denver," WEBB said last year. Mrs. WHEELER was a beautician first, then decided that she liked barbering better. "Using those iron-hot curlers and combs on hair created a lot of smoke and the smoke made me cough. So I quit doing women's hair and started barbering," she said last year. Mrs. WHEELER was a member of Shorter AME Community Church and a member of Shorter's The Loyalties Organization. She was also a member of Eastern Star and the Delta Mother's Patrons Club. She is survived by a daughter, Mabel LEATHERS of Okolona, Miss.; a granddaughter, Frances Farris BAILEY of Denver; a grandson, Clyde LEATHERS of Nashville; three grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren

PYLE, John Westley
1902
unsure
This undated obituary is from an unknown newspaper and was pasted in a family Bible. Other sources suggest that the actual date (of death) is 21 Feb., 1902. I don't know for a FACT that the death occurred in Boulder County, but the obituary does mention Lafayette. I'd like to know where J.W. Pyle was buried. "Stricken Down By Heart Trouble" J.W. Pye died at his home in this city this morning after several weeks of illness. Heart disease afflicted him while he was working as jeweler in the jewelry house of R.M. Crosby & Co. several weeks ago. A few days ago, a friend who called was not recognized by the sick man. Mr. Pyle came here from Lafayette, being deputy assessor under Assessors Metcalf and Golden. Then he went back to his watchmaker's trade. "He conducted a jewelry store at Lafayette and resided at Denver, Leadville and other Colorado towns. He leaves a lovely wife and one child. Mr. Pyle was about 48 years of age and was an affectionate husband and father and a genuine gentleman."

16 Jan 1914
Longmont, CO
Mrs. Ormena Douglass, who passed away Thursday, January 9, 1914, at her home on Coffman Street, was well known, especially among the old timers. Her age was 76 years, 4 months, and 1 day.

Mrs. Douglass had been in apparent good health, and was doing her own household duties every day. While preparing dinner, she went into the kitchen, when Mr. Douglass heard her fall. He went to her immediately, and found her dead upon the floor.

Mrs. Douglas was born in New York state in 1837. She was married in 1869 to William Stoddard, and came to Longmont in 1871, about the time the colony arrived. In 1873, Mr. Stoddard dropped dead from heart trouble, leaving his wife and two children, our Chauncey D. Stoddard, now employed in the post office, and one of the managers of the Isis theatre. The other, now Mrs. Luella Robbins, living at Nampa, Idaho, the wife of Chas. L. Robbins.

Three years after her husband's death, Mrs. Stoddard married Chester W. Douglas, and by this name most of us have known her.

Mrs. Douglas was a warm-hearted woman loved for her kind and pleasant disposition, and an active member of the W.W.C. and the Eastern Star. (Daughter of John D. Hall of VT & Sylvia Kibbe of NY)

STODDARD, Chauncey D.
19 September 1919
Longmont, Colorado
Death of Chauncey D. Stoddard R.K. Pierson received a telegram last Friday morning from the secretary of the Elks at Ashland, Oregon, stating that Chauncey D. Stoddard was found dead in his tent at 4:35 Thursday afternoon. Mr. Stoddard held the office of Inspector of State Highways since last June, and it seems that it required active supervision, for he worked two shifts a day, of eight hours each, sleeping when he could in a tent. A second telegram to Mr. Pierson stated that the cause of death was acute pneumonia, and that the body would be shipped to Longmont in care of the Elks. While Chauncey Stoddard had been away from Longmont, except for a short visit, for about four years, for he left about a year after his mother died, he is so well and favorably known that he deserves more than a passing mention.

Chauncey D. Stoddard was born in Marshalltown, Iowa forty-eight years ago, the 5th of last May. He was about two months old when his parents came with him to Longmont with the Colorado Colony, his father passing away about three years later.

Chauncey Stoddard has been an active young man, and his cordial, frank, and open nature has made many friends who will always remember him with pleasure.

M. Stoddard served in the state militia in the Cripple Creek strike, and was First Sergeant in the army in the war with Spain, serving in the Philippines. He was awarded a Bronze Medal "For his services, his sacrifices, and dangerous discharge of his duties as an American Soldier." The document is dated December 1, 1899.

On his return from the Philippines, he went into the service of the post office department in Longmont, which place he held for fifteen years. It was during this time that he became interested with others in the Motion Picture of Longmont. Upon giving up his position in the post office and selling his motion picture interests, he decided to go to Ashland, Oregon where he had bought a fruit farm. This happened four years ago.

Mr. Stoddard was Past Exalter Ruler of the B.P.O Elks of Longmont, as well as an enthusiastic member of that order.

Upon receiving notice of the death of Mr. Stoddard, Mr. Pierson wired Chauncey's only sister and nearest relative, at Nampa, Idaho. Mrs. C.L. Robbins, and she took a night train fro Longmont, arriving here Sunday. He was the step-son of C.W. Douglas.

The body was received by F.R. Shaw on Wednesday, and funeral services were held at the Congregational Church in Longmont, Rev. Monroe Markley officiating. As the physician's certificate did not arrive with the body, according to the state law, the Internment had to be postponed. So, escorted by the Elks fraternity after the funeral service, the remains were taken to Shaw's mortuary.

At the time of the Civil War he enlisted with the 21st Illinois Infantry and served until the war was over. His brothers were also Mountaineers in the war and the youngest, Oscar, gave his life for his country following the battle of Bull Run.

Mr. Douglas was married in Waukegan to Marilla Bryant, who died October 1, 1866, leaving two children, Hattie and Chester, both of whom have passed away. A grandson survives, Everett Chamberlain, son of his daughter, Hattie, who lives in California.

In 1874, Mr. Douglas came to Longmont and here he has made his home for 49 years. For a short time he was associated with Byron L. Carr in mining at Gold Hill, but for a number of years he was a jeweler and in business with Jud Terrell.

Two years after coming to Longmont he was married to Mrs. O. Stoddard who passed away in January 1914.

Mr. Douglas was a member of the G.A.R. and held many positions in the order, playing the fife always on Memorial Day.

Lyons, Kansas
CRUSHED UNDER TRACTOR -
Colorado Man Fatally Injured When Machine Backs Over Him -
At age 54, Charles Edward Rooks was fatally injured shortly before noon on June 29, 1946, when a tractor accidentally slipped into gear and backed over him on the J. P. Blevins farm a mile south of Lyons. With wounds in the chest and abdomen, a broken left arm, and the flesh severed from the lower part of his right leg, Rooks was taken to the Lyons hospital, where he died at 12:20 p.m.

Rooks and his brother-in-law, Monte Blevins, tenant on his father's farm, had just started to plow a wheat field with a tractor and one-way plow. Seeing that the rows were crooked, Rooks dismounted from the tractor to adjust the connection between it and the plow. While he was kneeling on the ground, the clutch on the tractor slipped into reverse gear, backed up, and crushed Rooks underneath.

Blevins ran to a nearby field and hailed Forrest Ebright, who sent for a Crawford and Miller ambulance. Rooks was conscious on the way to the hospital but died shortly after being admitted.

The victim had arrived Monday with his wife Effie, and daughter, Rena Marie, to visit his sisters, Mrs. Blevins and Mrs. John Huber of Lyons. Rooks was a watchman for the Industrial Mining Supply Company in Boulder, Colorado. He was born June 22, 1892, in Fairplay, Missouri, and was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Other survivors are five sons, Charles R., Lloyd, Delbert C., Lyndle E., and Leon E., all of Boulder, Colorado; two daughters, Mrs. Dale Lauer and Mrs. Byron Biehn, Boulder, Colorado; and a brother, John Rooks, Bellingham, Washington.

Charles Gustafson, Former Street Superintendent, Dies
Charles Gustafson, able Boulder City Road supervisor from July 1 1924, until retiring because of ill health Sept. 1, 1944, died this morning [Oct. 5, 1948] in a Denver hospital. He had been living since his retirement with a daughter, Christine, who is a member of the faculty of the Junior college at Casper, Wyo. When he became ill he was taken to a Denver hospital.

Mr. Gustafson was active in mining in Boulder county until becoming street superintendent. He and Julia Hammer were married Sept. 22, 1901 in Boulder, and made their home at Gold Hill before they moved to Boulder. Mrs. Gustafson died July 16, 1944, after a long period of ill health.

Surviving Mr. Gustafson are five children -- three sons and two daughters. The sons are John and Adolph, graduates of the University and engineers with the U. S. Reclamation Service in Denver, and Carl, employed at Casper. The daughters are Ann, who served as a Wave in the U. S. marines during War II and who is a secretary with the Reclamation Bureau in Denver; and Christine of Casper.

Mr. Gustafson was born in Sweden Sept. 29, 1870. He was brought to Boulder county by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Gustafson in 1884. [See note below]

Funeral services are to be held from Howe mortuary Friday at 3. Rev. H. M. Walters, rector of St. John's Episcopal church, will officiate along with Boulder Lodge No. 45, A. F. & A. M. Interment will be in the family lot, Green Mountain.

NOTE: His parents NEVER left Sweden. He came alone at the age of 15 and lived with an aunt and uncle. This information came from his son John and daughter Christine, written in letters independently of each other. Also, the daughter of his aunt and uncle, Anna Williamson, wrote the same thing in a letter. One additional proof is a letter written by his sister from Sweden in 192?; in it she mentions that Charles and Julia had sent a gift for "Mother's birthday."

CHANDLER, Lila P.
October 21, 1910
Boulder, CO
Miss Lila P. CHANDLER, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P.K. FISHER, of Alamosa, died in Denver - Friday morning, October 21st, age 33 years and two days. The funeral services were held in Denver, Dr. Wilcox of the Trinity M. E. church officiating. The interment was at Boulder under the auspices of the Rebecca Lodge, of which Miss CHANDLER was a member. The deceased was born in O'Brien county Iowa, but had made her home in Colorado for a number of years. She was of a happy, cheerful, contended disposition and though she knew death was not far distant a year ago by reason of a weak heart, never lost courage and that Christian spirit and faith which marked her character. She will be sadly missed by many who know her because of her genial ways and good heart. Miss CHANDLER was staying with her sister, Vel FISHER, while Mr. and Mrs. FISHER were making their home in Alamosa. The family have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends in their hour of bereavement; but they may be assured that Miss Lila had not lived in vain, and though taken from earth in the noontide of life has left a monument of unselfishness and cheer.
