Benjamin Russel Pollock Colvin
Pop-up Pedigree

Burial*: Lot 99, Alva, Crook County, Wyoming, U.S.A.
Note*: Ben Russell Pollock Colvin was the son of Ella and Ezekle Colvin, born inRock Port, Missouri on 18 December, 1877. His father was killed in atrain accident in 1879 and in the fall of 1880, Ben and his mother, Ella,moved to Deadwood, South Dakota. There Ella ran a boarding house forminers at Strawberry Gulch. Ben first attended school in Deadwood. Then in 1890 his mother andstepfather moved to a ranch on the Bell Fourche River, three miles fromHulett, Wyoming. His teachers in the area were Libby Baxter and NelsDavis. In1893, Ben went to Spearfish, South Dakota for school, boardingwith Mr. and Mrs. Bill Todds. In 1894 he attended the Spearfish Normal and thenext year he went to Business School at Lincoln, Nebraska. In 1896 heattended Business School at Sioux City, Iowa, where he graduated. By 1897, Ben was back in Wyoming working for Driskills on the Round-up.During the roundup, Ed Wolfork, a Cross Anchor cowboy, shot Willie Gillanin an argument. Ben sat up with poor Willie for three nights before hefinally died. Ben was determined to have a place of his own and in 1899 filed on ahomestead in Red Canyon, between Alva and Hulett, Wyoming. Ben quicklybuilt a home, for on 9 of April, 1899, Miss Lana French became his wifein a ceremony performed in the new house by Reverend J.S.F. Wood. Ben andLana lived on the homestead for two years, then sold the place to GeorgeMorrison and moved to Deadwood, South Dakota. Ben went to work in theRound House of the Chicago Northwestern Railroad. In 1903 they moved toChadron, Nebraska, and Ben was a fireman on the railroad from Chadron,Nebraska to Deadwood, South Dakota. Two daughters were born to the Colvins, Marjorie Ann, the 2nd ofDecember, 1903 and Mildred, the 24th of October, 1905. In January 1908 railroad ties were being cut on Ben’s former homesteadand on others. Vic French had the contract of skidding and hauling themto the Belle Fourche River bank. Vernon Powell and his father built ahouseboat and had a contract to float the ties to Belle Fourche, when theice went out of the river in the spring. Moving back to Wyoming about 1910 or 1911, Ben operated a sawmill in RedCanyon and on Little Beaver Creek. He sold the mill to Ed Willson and thefamily moved to Alva, Wyoming. They operated a dance hall and restaurantand later a hardware store. Ben was appointed postmaster at Alva 15,September, 1913, a position he held for one year. Later he served asassistant postmaster while the postmaster, Dillon B. Ruland served hiscountry in World War I. In 1922, Ben and Lana moved to Lavoye, Wyoming, just south of Midwest. Inpartnership with Otto Lundblad, formerly of Aladdin, Wyoming, he operateda meat market during the boom days of that small oil town. This ventureended in tragedy. A gas explosion in their double apartment killed Mr.and Mrs. Lundblad and their two small sons in December 1927. About thistime the Salt Creek Bank closed its doors and the Colvins lost all oftheir savings. Broke and disheartened they returned to their home inAlva, Wyoming. Ben continued to work off and on as a sawyer for Shrum and Jones Sawmillsfor several years. In November of 1936 Ben had a crew of WPA (WorksProject Administration) men working on repairing the bridge south of Alva. In 1942 to 1944 he worked for the Belle Fourche Sugar Mill and 1945 to1947 he was employed by Kewitts Construction Company while they built anew road between Midwest and Casper, Wyoming. In 1951 Ben and Lana moved to Rapid City, South Dakota to care for theiroldest daughter. When she died a year later, they returned to Alva. Thenext ten years were a peaceful time, spent with their family and friendsin a quiet community. They celebrated their sixtieth Wedding Anniversaryin 1959, just a few miles from where they had started their life together. Ben passed away July, 1962 and was laid to rest in the Alva Cemetery.
