CAPTAIN JOSIAH W. MCINTYRE.--The subject of this
sketch was born March 15th, 1839, at
Villanova, New York. His school days were spent in
the public schools, the High school at Erie,
Pennsylvania, from which he graduated, subsequently
taking a thorough business training at a commercial
college in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. On August 30th,
1862, he enlisted as a private in Company C of the
16th Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry and
served until 1864, when he was discharged on account
of disability. He was wounded under the left eye at
the battle of Shepardstown, Virginia, and taken
prisoner, but was exchanged shortly afterwards and
sent home. On recovering from his wound he rejoined
his regiment and did valiant service for the Union.
The wound under the eye gave him a great deal of
trouble and, owing to unskillful treatment while he
was prisoner, resulted in producing total blindness
in 1885. In 1866, Captain McIntyre moved to
Missouri, where he studied law and was admitted to
the bar and elected County Judge of Caldwell county
in 1870, in which office he served two full terms.
He came to Fort Collins (Larimer CO, Colorado, USA)
in April, 1878, and that city has since been the
family home. After losing his sight, Captain
McIntyre resumed his study of law in the law
department of the University of Michigan, graduating
therefrom in June, 1889 with the highest of honors
conferred by that institution. He was the first
blind man to graduate in the United States with the
degree LL. D. He was married to Lucy N. Richards,
September 13th, 1862, who with one son,
Clyde, of Michigan, survives him. He died on the 6th
of October, 1892. Lucy N. Richards was born November
11th, 1844, in Erie county, Pennsylvania.
Her parents were of Puritan blood and revolutionary
stock. She was educated in the public and academic
schools of that day and began teaching school at the
age of 17 years. She married Josiah W. McIntyre, in
September, 1862, just before he left for the front
as a volunteer, in the Civil war, parting with her
young husband with smiles instead of tears, not
because her heart was not breaking, but because of
the great cause in which he had enlisted. Seven
children were born to Captain and Mrs. McIntyre,
only one of whom Clyde, survives. Mrs. McIntyre was
a charter member of the Woman’s Christian Temperance
Union of Fort Collins, organized in 1879, and still
retains her membership. In 1910 she received the
State W. C. T. U. banner for the best local
evangelistic work. Her whole life has been devoted
to the work of uplifting humanity and she has long
been a recognized leader in church and mission work
and reform movements. She became a member of the
Methodist Episcopal church when ten years of age,
and has since led a consistent Christian life. She
is a bible student an ardent lover of books and her
home at 137 Matthew street contains an excellent

mother Vermont. But she might be the Ada C. McIntyre who's married to James
W.McIntre in 1880 Osborne County, Kansas. and in 1900 Jewell County,Kansas.
