[Scan 14] [newspaper clippings pasted onto illustrated page of Bible] June 25 - 1895 DEATH OF D.W. EWING. We regret the sad necessity of announcing this week the departure of another pioneer citizen of this community. David W. Ewing died at his home, on Tuesday morning, June 25 . The funeral sermon was preached at the church by Rev. A.L. Chase on Wednesday, and a large number of the friends and relatives of the deceased were present at the interment at the cemetary. David W. Ewing had resided for a score and a half of years on his large ranch near Fort Lupton. His residence was erected at the very spot where the fort from which this town derived its name was located. Here he has lived and prospered, a highly respected citizen and a good neighbor. The entire community sympathize with the bereaved wife and children in mourning his loss. Deceased was born in Pennsylvania in 1829. Was married in 1863. He came to Colorado and settled in this valley in 1859, being one of the foremost pioneers in advancing civilization to this section of the west. He freighted across the plains, built him a home, cultivated the prairie soil, and engaged extensively in the business of cattle raising. The prosperity that he attained is well known to all residents of the Platte valley. He leaves a wife, children and grandchildren to mourn his loss. About a year ago he endured the first attack of the disease, paralysis, which caused his death. During a long illness he has received the tender care of his family, and all that careful attention or medical skill could do to relieve his suffering was done. The entire neighborhood and many friends and relations elsewhere lament the loss of Dave Ewing. June 25, 95. Oct 15 - 1922. S. J. Hubbell Passed Away Sunday Night Came to Fort Lupton in 1874; Was At One Time Mayor Here; Practiced Medicine; Moved to Denver in 1917 Dr. S. J. Hubbell, one of the most favorably known pioneers of this community, died Sunday evening at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. W. McKissick, in Fort Lupton, at the age of 88 years. He dressed and went to the fire at the condenser Saturday night, but on Sunday morning he was not feeling well and a physician was called. Just before his death that evening, he called to his daughter, Mrs. McKissick, saying "Clara, if you will go down stairs and make me a cup of coffee I will come down and drink it." a few minutes, when she with the doctor went back to his room, they found him dead. Mrs. Hubbell died on January 27, 1917. Those left to mourn Dr. Hubbell's death are three sons and two daughters, namely, A. B. Hubbell and Thomas Hubbell of Denver, Galt Hubbell, Mrs. John McKissick and Mrs. H. H. Ewing of Fort Lupton. Dr. Hubbell came to Fort Lupton in 1874, where he served as mayor, twice as treasurer and was a trustee for four terms. He held membership and became an active worker in the Episcopal church. He practiced medicine in Fort Lupton until March 27, 1917, when he sold his practice and removed to Denver, where until recently he has made his home. At 3 years of age Dr. Hubbell, with his parents, moved to Kentucky and later to Michigan, from here they went to Saginaw Bay. At this place, Dr. Hubbell, only a mere boy, slept every night on the arm of an Indian chief, who always called him little papoose. At the age of 7, Dr. Hubbell was sent to an Episcopal school and later attended Kenyon college, where he learned to speak four languages, besides English. In 1853 he began the study of pharmacy and in 1855 he became a student in Jefferson Medical college at Philadelphia. His first practice started in the town of North Wheeling, where he served the people for two years as city physician. In 1859 he started for Pike's Peak, where there seemed to be little prospect for successful mining, and he returned to Springfield, Ohio. During the Civil war he was sent to Chimboraze hospital, where he had charge of a number of the wards. He was in every engagement of the Tenth Virginia regiment. After the war he suffered a nervous breakdown, confining him to his bed for three months. After his recovery he went to Richmond to marry his sweetheart, Miss Agatha Clarissa Allen. Dr. and Mrs. Hubbell traveled life's journey together for half a century, coming to Colorado in 1873. Dr. Hubbell enjoyed relating many interesting stories of his early life in Colorado. At one time, while living in a udgout, 500 antelopes walked over his dugout, and at another time he told of having 30 quarters of buffalo meat hung up to be put down in brine. The funeral procession started from the undertaking parlors of H. G. Winters and proceeded to the Episcopal church, where the services were held, conducted by the local orders of Masons and Eastern Star. The sermon was preached by Rev. C. H. Brady of St. Barnabas church, Denver. Miss Margaret Twombly, accompanied on the piano by Mrs. I. L. Morgan, sang two selections. The honorary pallbearers, all Masons, were E. B. Davis, Charles Kelsey, Ralph Haynes, H. B. Allsebrook, active pallbearers being John Mills, Robert Applegate, C. G. Philip, A. T. Monson of Denver, R. A. Whiteside, Wm. Reynolds. The business houses of Fort Lupton closed during the funeral. The funeral was attended by one of the largest gatherings ever witnessed in Fort Lupton.

Jan. 27 - 1918 - ANOTHER PIONEER GONE. After ten years of suffering, during most of which time she was totally helpless, Mrs. S. J. Hubbell, wife of Dr. S. J. Hubbell, with whom for nearly forty years she had been a resident of Fort Lupton and Weld county, was mercifully relieved from her long illness on Sunday when, surrounded by husband and children, she departed this life and was called to her heavenly home. Death was due directly to a stroke of paralysis, with which she was stricken on Wednesday of last week at noon, and from which she never regained consciousness, passing away peacefully on Sunday at 12:30 p. m. Agatha Clarissa Allen was born March 23, 1841, in Manchester, Va. She spent her early life in her native state surrounded by luxury and friends. At the age of 12 she was confirmed in St. Paul's Episcopal church, Richmond, Va., with which denomination she was identified until death. On March 4, 1868, she was married to Stephen Johnson Hubbell at Richmond, Va., and in the early 70s they came west together to face the hardships of a new country. They settled at Green City, near Greeley, where with a colony of other Virginians they shared joys and sorrows alike. In a few years they came to Fort Lupton and had lived here inuously until a few months ago, when they moved to Denver in order that Mrs. Hubbell might have better care, and where, 2458 W. 29 street, she was living when death's call came. A woman of beautiful character, untiring energy and keen sense of humor, her friends numbered all who knew her. During her years of health, although her home duties were many, she was never too busy to lend assistance to her neighbor. Her mind was ever alert, keeping pace with the world's progress, and her charming hospitality made her home a mecca of joy for old and young. Upon coming to Fort Lupton, Mrs. Hubbell, not finding her own church, did not sit with folded hands, but entered enthusiastically into the work of the Methodist church, where for thirty years she served as a Sunday School teacher. And never was one more faithful, always prepared and on hand to fill her place unless illness prevented. Mrs. Hubbell was a charter member of the Ladies' Aid and of Bountiful Chapter No. 72, O. E. S., and at her death was an honorary member of the Eastern Star and of St. Mary's Guild. For the past eight years Mrs. Hubbell had been an invalid, being badly crippled with rheumatism. Endless pain she suffered, but bravely she bore her affliction, believing it her Father's will and living in faith. Often had she longed to be called home. Those surviving her are her husband, Dr. S. J. Hubbell, two daughters, Mrs. J. W. McKissick and rMs. H. H. Ewing, and three sons, Thomas, Allen and William G. Hubbell. The funeral was held from the M. E. church Tuesday, January 29, at 1:30 p. m., Rev. Chas. H. Brady of the Episcopal church, officiating. The honorary pall bearers were T. L. Monson, T. C. Winbourn, E. S. St. John, Peter Nilsen, B. F. Twombly and Charles Safford, while the active pall bearers were A. C. Cheely, C. G. Philip, R. A. Whiteside, W. D. Reynolds, H. B. Allsebrook and A. T. Monson. Mrs. Mary Beatty of Denver sang two solos, "Rock of Ages," and "Just for Today." Many beautiful flowers surrounded the casket, the friends remembering her wonderful love for flowers during life. The sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved family.

[Scan 15] [newspaper clippings pasted onto illustrated page of Bible] Nov. 26, 1945 Mrs. Smith D. Philip Is Laid to Rest Friday Afternoon A large number of friends and acquaintances of many years joined the sorrowing family of Mrs. S. D. Philip for funeral services held for her on Friday afternoon, November 30, at two o'clock. Mrs. Philip, wife of Smith D. Philip, had been in failing health almost a year. During all the months when she was aware that her illness was terminating in a losing battle, she was cheerful, patient, and kind to all who administered to her and almost to the last she gave words of cheer to those she was leaving behind. The impressive service was held in her beloved church, the First Methodist church, which she and her family were instrumental in helping form and maintain and of which she had been a member since she was eighteen years of age. Her pastor, Dr. O. Franklin Archer, delivered a most comforting sermon to the loved ones and friends who filled the church to overflowing. Miss Genevieve Fehrn, at the organ, played soft strains of sacred selections preceding and following the service. She also accompanied a quartette composed of Mrs. O. F. Archer, Miss Louise Walker, W. M. Ward and C. A. Lederer as they sang, "In the Garden" and "Good Night and Good Morning." The entire front of the church was banked with beautiful floral sprays, bouquets and blossoming potted plants, evidence of the regard of many. Those who bore the casket were William Wallace, E. E. Caldwell, Tracy Forward, O. N. Putnam, Ralph Haynes and C. M. Whiteside. She was laid to rest in Hillside cemetery. The Lefferdink Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements. Agatha Cowgill Hubbell was born October 1, 1875, at Green City, Colorado, the daughter of Dr. Stephen J. and Clara Hubbell. She departed this life November 26, 1945. With her family she came to Fort Lupton at the age of four years and had made this her home since, with the exception of brief sojourns away. She received her education in the public schools of Fort Lupton and Colorado State Normal School at Greeley. December 25, 1895, she was married to Harry Howard Ewing, prominent farmer and rancher. They went to live on the ranch north of Fort Lupton which is one of the old landmarks of this section of the state. It was this land that withstood the siege of unfriendly Indians and the site of the station where the old stage coaches stopped in the early days. It was here her five sons, Millard H., Harry A., Allen C., George L., and Jess L., and one daughter, Opal B., now Mrs. Sam Farnsworth, were born. All the sons with the exception of Jess, who was released from the Navy a few days ago, live on a part of the old ranch. Mrs. Fransworth's home is in Los Angeles. Mr. Ewing passed away in December, 1935. She gave unstintingly of her time and energy to her church and its organizations, the Ladies Aid, which later became the Women's Society of Christian Service, and the Berean Sunday School class, until her failing health prevented her from doing so. She was a member and Past Worthy Matron of Bountiful Chapter No. 72, O. E. S., a member of the Territorial Daughters of Colorado, Jesse Oliver Unit No. 102, American Legion Auxiliary and the Thursday Afternoon club. On August 11, 1939, she was united in marriage to Smith D. Philip, Fort Lupton busines man and friend from childhood, a union which was very happy to them and pleasing to their respective families. Mrs. Philip will be remembered as full of life, vitality and the joy of living. She was friendly, cheerful and was the leading spirit wherever she went and added to the entertainment of whatever group of which she might be a member. Her wide acquaintances regret her passing and will think of her as a courageous and happy friend. In addition to her husband, Smith D. Philip, and children, Millard, Harry, Allen, George L., Jess, and Mrs. Farnsworth, she is survived by nine grandchildren, Harold, Helen, Grant, Millard, Dale, Joy Lynne, Karen, Mary Ann Ewing and Stephen Farnsworth, and one great-grandchild, David Bruce Ewing, also one sister, Clara, Mrs. J. W. McKissick of Fort Lupton; three brothers, Thos. and Allen Hubbell of Denver and w. G. Hubbell of Fort Lupton; two step-sons, George Philip of Denver and Lieut. Colonel Cornelius Philip, now in the South Pacific, and a large host of sorrowing friends and neighbors. Among those from out of town to attend the services were Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Hubbell, Thos. Hubbell, Mrs. Jack Hubbell, Mr. and Mrs. Don Davis, Mr. and Mrs. James Willey, Mr. and Mrs. J. L.

"Les" Ewing, 53, prominent farmer and community worker, died suddenly of a heart attack early Tuesday afternoon in a Denver doctor's office where he had gone for a check-up.

The seizure occurred just after he was preparing to leave the examining room. His unexpected death was a shock to the entire Fort Lupton community of which he had been an active and responsible member all his life.
