JARRE, C.A. February 29, 1888
We understand that Mr. C.A. Jarre, living west of Sedalia is confined to his bed with a severe spell of sickness and that he is not expected to live. His trouble from the report, is the swelling of a blood vessel in the region of the heart. The physicians look for the bursting of this at any moment. If it does death will immediately come. This trouble has been affecting Mr. Jarre for several months and at one time he was thought to be wholly out of danger. His 12 year old daughter, who had an attack of sciatic rheumatism but a short time ago, has nearly recovered. (BURIED AT BEAR CANYON CEMETERY, DEATH DATE AS 1888)

LAMBERT, JOSEPH March 2, 1887
Death of Joseph Lambert, From Denver News
After a prolonged illness of some four months, another Colorado pioneer and resident of Denver quietly passed away at high noon Sunday. His illness gave warning of its fatal nature from its first inception, and the long hours endured by him of patient watching for the note of its ending gave constant evidence of his unfaltering faith, that death was but a birth to a most glorious and unending life - an eternity of extended usefulness and joy.
"His sun went down while it was yet day;
It went not down behind a cloud,
But melted into the pure light of Heaven."
Mr. Lambert leaves a wife, who, with his only son, have been his tireless watchers, ministering to his every want - for his illness has confined him to a chair - to recline was impossible. He was a native of the state of Maine, a Quaker by birth - a disciple of William Penn. He was a man of iron will and determination, of great force of character, exalted sense of right, a man of sterling integrity, unflinching in the discharge of every trust and duty from which no influence could swerve him. So long as he conceived it to be right, he was as immovable as rock.
The funeral services were held under the direction of Denver Lodge No. 6, A.F. and A.M. Commandery No. l Knights Templar, acting as an escort, from his late residence No. 1254 State street, at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon.

Frightful Accident in Garber Canon
About 9 o'clock a.m. on Wednesday, June 28th, Mr. James Russell Lansden left E. Bowen's mill, in Garber canon, with a mule team and a load of over 1000 feet of lumber. Coming down the steep pitch a quarter of a mile from the mill, his brake block slipped
out of its socket, running the wagon onto his spike team of three mules, and mules, lumber and driver went headlong down from the grade to the gulch on the right, breaking
the tongue and reach of the wagon. Mr. Lansden had his foot in the brake rope and being unable to free himself he was thrown under the load and was so badly injured that he died at 9 p.m. the same day, and was buried Thursday at Bear Canon church yard. He had four ribs on the left side broken and was internally mashed almost in a jelly. He was, however, conscious and able to talk up to the last moment. It was one of those accidents due to men becoming so familiarized with danger that they grow careless. Mr. Lansden has been hauling lumber the past two years over mountain roads. Your correspondent came down from the Rock to Sedalia with him on the previous Monday. He intended going to Buffalo Creek via Denver, but being told of Bowen's Mill went there. This was his first trip down from the mill, and to those acquainted with the road it is not surprising that he did not appreciate fully how steep the road really is. The boys at the mill came down in a body and did all that was possible to alleviate his terrible sufferings with the proverbial tenderness of our rough Western boys, but he was past all human aid from the first moment of the smashup. They also chipped in and paid all the funeral expenses. Mr. Lansden was from Missouri, but had been about Colorado Springs the past two years. He leaves a young wife and three prattling babes, (the eldest but eight years old) to mourn his departure. "Tis ever thus. Man knoweth not in what manner of time his hour cometh. In the midst of life we are in death." Veritas.
LEHMAN, FRED Rocky Mtn. News Dec. 25, 2003 by Tillie Fong
Fred Lehman started his career in flowers but wound up in cattle.
"He could do just about anything", said his wife, Pat Lehman of Morrison. "He liked to grow things. He was really an animal lover."

Mr. Lehman died Dec. 13 at Porter Hospice in Englewood. He was 65.

Born March 16, 1938, in Denver, he worked as a child in his father's greenhouse on Colorado Boulevard. The greenhouse grew carnations and vegetables for local markets.

Mr. Lehman graduated from Colorado State University in 1961 with a degree in horticulture. He was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

He joined the Army right out of college and was stationed in Alaska as a mechanic. He was discharged as a private first class in 1963. Mr. Lehman married Pat Hallberg on Aug. 1, 1970, in Denver, and they moved to Parker. He decided to follow in his father's footsteps and opened a 50,000 square foot greenhouse, called Fred Lehman Greenhouse, which specialized in carnations. "It was a very big industry because we had more days of natural sunlight than any other state," Pat Lehman said. "We were well known for the Colorado carnation. People knew where they came from. It was a source of great pride."

In the mid-1970's, when carnations started to be imported from So. America, Mr. Lehman decided to diversity his business and started growing snapdragons, lilies, and bedding plants.

He opened a flower shop in 1973 and expanded his business in 1980 to include a garden center and a nursery.
Mr. Lehman ws a member of the Colorado Flower Growers Assn. and the Rocky Mtn. Santa Gertrudis Assn.

In 1999, Mr. Lehman sold the business and his 25 acre ranch in Parker and moved to Morrison, where his family had a 160 acre ranch.

While living in Parker, he had started to raise cattle.

"We grew hay there, and got a few head of cattle when we need a tax write-off," said his wife.

But after doing some research Mr. Lehman found that Santa Gertrudis cattle were good beef producers, and he started specializing in the breed, raising a herd of 20 cows and calves. He often would sell and buy cattle at the National Western Stock Show and show them there.

When the family moved to the ranch in Morrison, they continued to raise feeder cattle, mostly 10-15 animals, which they would auction off in Fort Collins every year.

The last of his cattle was sold in Oct.(2003)

In addition to his wife, Mr. Lehman is survived by a son Frerd Lehman of Englewood; a daughter, Tina Lehman, of Morrison; and two sisters, Freida Wambolt, of Littleton and Phyllis Contrearas, of Westminster.

Contributions may be made to Porter Hospice, 333 W. Hampden Ave., sutite 620, Englewood, Co. 80110.
LEHMAN, FRED Douglas Co. News Press, Dec. 18, 2003-Susan Dage Ruby
Fred Lehman, the only son of first -generations German immigrants and a longtime Parker resident, died Dec. 13 at the Porter Hospice at Johnson Center in Centennial. He was 65.

Mr. Lehman had a stroke.

Funeral mall was Dec. 17 at the Light of the World Catholic Church in Littleton. Internment will be later at the Lehman Family Ranch in Morrison.

His parents, Fred and Freida (Repp) Lehman, homesteaded east of Denver, but later moved to the city. Fred and Freida Lehman owned a greenhouse on Colorado Boulevard when it was a two lane dirt road. There, the family raised carnations and vegetables to sell to local markets and neighbors.

Born March 16, 1938, Mr. Lehman worked with his father at the greenhouse.

After he graduated from South High School, Mr. Lehman attended Colorado State University, Fort Collins, where he graduated in 1961 with a degree in horticulture. While at CSU he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1961 and served a tour of duty in Alaska as a mechanic. He earned a good conduct medal.

He married Patricia Hallberg Aug. 1, 1970, at St. Vincente Paul Catholic Church in Denver, and the couple honeymooned in Europe and Italy.

The family settled in Parker, where for 30 years Mr. Lehman built a business. A love of the land got into him just like the soil got under his fingernails.
Mr. Lehman, like his father, grew carnations. He also was involved in the Colorado Flower Grower's Assn. He grew a variety of other plants and flowers and eventually converted his greenhouse to a garden center, flower shop and nursery.

"My father was hard-working," said his son, Fred Lehman.

Mr. Lehman was part of the land, whether growing carnations or cattle.

A good Friend of Douglas County rancher and preservationist, Tweet Kimball, Lehman also raised Santa Gertrudis cattle and served on the Rocky Mtn. Santa Gertrudis Assn.

"He enjoyed his cattle," his son said.

After Mr. Lehman sold his business and Parker property, which now the site of the Wal-Mart Super center, he moved with is wife to the family's ranch near Morrison.

There, he continued to work with his cattle and do forestry on 160 acres. He also worked part time for the Jefferson County School Dist.

Besides his wife of Morrison, he is survived by son Fred Lehman of Englewood; daughter, Tina Lehman, of Morrison; sisters Freida Wambolt of Littleton and Phyllis Contreasras of Westminster; and numerous family and friends.
