Fatal Accident.

A sad and fatal accident happened to Mr. J. A. Colby, of this city, last Tuesday morning about 10 o’clock. It appears that Mr. Colby had just taken a horse belonging to J. J. Warley, from the stable with the intention of sending him around the track a few times as had been his usual practice, and when only a few rods from the barn the horse stopped, throwing the old gentleman between the shafts and against the horses feet and was so trampled upon and injured that he died in about three hours in spite of everything that could be done for him. Several of his ribs were broken and one leg was badly shattered besides which he was injured internally.

Mr. Colby, though only a resident of the town for about a year and a half, had come to be greatly respected by all our citizens. It is a very sad affliction for the family, following so closely, as it does, the death of the son, Frank H. Colby, last winter.—[Portland, N.D., Press].

On Jan. 3 of the year 1912, Dr. A.S. Nuckles of Ponca City forded the icy water of the Arkansas river with his team and buggy and proceeded east about seven miles into the Osage Tribal Reservation to deliver Bert and Nora Colby's last son, Joe (Joseph Franklin) Colby. It was so cold in that small wood frame house that a glass of water froze on the dresser in the bedroom where Nora had her baby.

Bert, then about thirty years of age, had been a cowboy at the "Hundred and One" from 1896 until the death of G.W. Miller in 1903. Although born in a sod house south of Colby, Kan., the town named after his father, Joseph R. Colby, Bert had gone through the eighth grade in Enid before going to work for the Millers. Nora Dennison Hardy, being Osage, had been raised on the reservation east of Ponca City. She had been married previously and had a son, Oral, and a daughter, Irene. Walter, Joe's full brother, had been born almost three years before in 1909. Bert and Nora established their ranch on Nora's Osage Tribal Allotment.

When Joe was 1 year old they moved into their new home built on the place about a half mile east of the old house. In this new home Joe resided all the rest of his life, except for the last five months while being in hospitals and nursing homes.

The Colbys, father Bert and sons Walter and Joe, made their living in the farming and cattle business. Bert Colby and Sons Hereford Ranch was a registered cattle operation which lasted over thirty years. Colby Herefords were known country-wide. Prize bulls and heifers were entered and won their classes in livestock shows in Chicago, Kansas City and Tulsa. In the late 40s, one of their heifers, a grand champion animal of the Tulsa State Fair, was sold at auction in the lobby of the Mayo Hotel in downtown Tulsa. The drought of the 50s caused the Colbys to disperse their registered herd and thereafter they ran commercial cows and stocker cattle.

Joe attended eleven years of school at St. Mary's in Ponca City. One of his twelve years was spent in a one-room schoolhouse built behind the home on the ranch. Father Bert hired a school teacher who taught their four children along with one or two children whose fathers worked on the ranch. Joe attended one semester at the University of Oklahoma.

In the years prior to his marriage to Audrey, Joe worked on the ranch but spent some time driving for Col. Zack T. Miller. Zack, at that time, was traveling the country trading cattle, horses and mules. Some of those trips were to New York and New Jersey, Florida and the other Southeastern states as well as Texas and as far west as the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. Col. Zack also helped the Colbys market some of their registered cattle through his contacts around the country.

Ponca City oil man Lew Wentz was a cattle customer of the Colbys and relied on the expertise of Bert, Walter and Joe to advise him on further cattle purchases. Joe made several trips with Mr. Wentz helping him purchase cattle. Mr. Wentz was a frequent visitor to the ranch and it was not unusual to see him helping himself to a self-guided tour of the pastures and bull pens.

On June 3, 1939, Joe married Audrey Tayrien at the Catholic Church in Pawhuska. They were married 56 years, living all of that time in the big house.

Joe served on the Osage Tribal council 12 years and was on the Osage County Fair Board a number of years.

Senator John Dahl, a close friend of Joe's, named the portion of old U.S. Highway 60, on which the home sits, Joe Colby Road in his honor.

Joe enjoyed fishing and hunting. A number of hunts were made with close friend Zack Miller Jr. in Texas and Montana. He took great pleasure being with his friends and family.

He is preceded in death by his parents, his wife, brother Walter, half-brother Oral Hardy and half-sister Irene Dunlap.

He is survived by his son, daughter-in-law, three granddaughters, one step-granddaughter, and five great-grandchildren.

Casket bearers will be Bob Stingley, Henry Hainzinger, Henry Lee Hainzinger, Mark Freeman III, Arlin Cales and Jack Klinger.

Grandfather Joseph Colby told me he was born in Fillmore, and grew up in Holden, Utah. He said he played and wrestled with many of the Indian kids who lived there. Holden was an Indian Reservation for the Goshute Indians. He got his first six years of school there. The remainder of his education came through self study and practical experiences. Grandfather Colby was a smart and shrewd businessman. As a young man he accumulated a great deal of wealth. He owened several farms and ranches, three sheep herds, and a drug store.

Grandfather Colby met Grandmother Mary Ellen Stringham in Holden. They were married September 16, 1877. Grandmother's parents were Jeremiah and Sarah A. Bova Stringham. Jeremiah Stringham's father was George Stringham. George Stringham and his family joined the Mormon Church in Palmyra, New York in 1830, the year Joseph Smith organized it, and there were just 30 members.
