One thought on “March 2019 issue of Colfax Cobblestones”

  1. My 3rd Great Uncle Ammiel Brickell was shot and killed in Colfax and is among the earliest graves in the Colfax Cemetery. Here is a link to the newspaper article about the hanging of the young man who had worked for him and his two brothers – EJ and Barzillai Brickell – at their saloon in Illinoistown and who shot. They had fired him and he ran off with Ammiel’s 15 year old daughter. When they finally returned to town there was a confrontation and young Samuel Garrett shot Ammiel Brickell dead. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/46502345/ammiel-brickell https://www.newspapers.com/clip/9699054/wm_s_kelly_executed_for_killing_of/?xid=637
