Obituary - date and paper uknown:

John Barlow of Avon passed on Friday morning in Glenwood Springs, from a protracted case of miner's T. B., the end coming unexpectedly, as up to almost the last hour he was hopeful of recovery, and wrote his wife in Red Cliff that he expected to be home for Christmas.

He was born in Franklin Center, Canada, coming to Leadville when only 17 months old. He moved to Red Cliff and Gilman in 1907, and was married to Mrs. Tom Owen in 1916.

He followed the occupation of mining until about 10 years ago, at which time he purchased the old Mack Fleck ranch at Avon, where he had hoped to recuperate his failing health.

Jack Barlow was the exceptional machine man in a mine. He was employed on the Empire Zinc property for years. It was he who drove the long 14 level drift from the Iron Mask over to the Black Iron workings. He did most of the upraising for the many ore pockets between the 14 and 16 levels and the loading pockets under the Newhouse tunnel. He paid the price like many other miners, sticking too close to the work they liked. Jack Barlow always was a favorite with his helpers.

He leaves a widow and two step sons, two sisters, Mrs. Nellie Nolan and Mrs. May Allison, both of Victor, several nieces and nephew and one step-daughter.

The funeral services will be conducted from their ranch home near Avon.

Interment will be in the cemetery at Red Cliff where he always expressed a desire to be buried -- nature's beauty spot for a last resting place; so the old timers are taking the long journey by twos and threes. Their ranks are thinning out. They finish their work and pass on.

Mrs. Barlow and relatives have the sympathy of many friends.

A Leadville Paper / possibly the Leadville Herald Democrat     July 02, 1931


Funeral services, which were held this morning for the late Thomas Flannery, former Leadville resident, were largely attended by local friends and a representation of Gilman citizens, as he had been living at Gilman for the past twenty-three years.

The services were held at 9:30 this morning from the Church of the Annunciation, the funeral cortege leaving the Moynahan-O'Malia funeral chapel at 1 o'clock.

Rev. Father E. L. Horgan officiated at mass. Two vocal solos, 'Prayer for Happy Death' and 'One Fleeting Hour' were sung by Mrs. Kate Forman, accompanied by Miss Mary Genry, organist.

Interment was in St. Joseph's cemetery and the pallbearers, all citizens of Gilman, Colorado, were Pete Doyle, John Doyle, O.R. Abrahamsen, John Curran, Adam Houck, and Thomas Daviney.

Born in New York City, February 01, 1872 he came to Colorado when he was about twelve years of age. After settling for a time in the San Luis Valley, he later moved to Leadville when the town was in its boom.

He engaged as a miner here for several years.

He was married in Leadville when he was about twenty-one to Catherine Barlow and twenty-three years ago he and his family moved to Gilman, Colorado, where he followed his occupation as a miner and shaft foreman.

During the influenza epidemic in 1918 he lost his wife and two sons, who were buried in Leadville within a period of ten days.

While he made his home at Gilman, he gained many friends as was evidenced by the number of floral tributes and the attendance at the funeral services. Numbered among the floral tributes were many large set pieces and a broken wheel from the Gilman community.

He died in a Salida hospital last Friday morning from injuries incurred the previous morning, when he fell from a pile line at the tailings pond of the Empire Zinc company, where he had been employed for the past four or five years. Following the accident he was taken to the hospital at Salida via ambulance, and the death resulted from a punctured lung, caused by a fractured rib.

For several years he had been employed as a shaft foreman but, recently, because of failing health, had been transferred to outdoor work; and it was while working on the pipe line that he fell to the ground, Thursday morning. He was rushed to the Gilman hospital and sent from there to Salida.

The only surviving member of his family, a married daughter, Mrs. Leo Jones of Oakland, California, arrived here after being notified of her father's death. He is also survived by a son-in-law, Leo Jones and thre e grandchildren, Patricia, Barbara and Milford Jones.

A sister-in-law, Mrs. Nellie Nolan of Lake City, Colorado and a niece Mrs. Hazel William's of Victor, Colorado together with Mr. Nolan and Mr. Williams were here for the funeral services.
