Emil Larson cash-claimed a quarter in 34, 9N 48W in 1906.  That's about five miles from Charley's and Carl's claims., and was later than other cash claims, so perhaps it was an abandoned claim.

Colo., Feb. 28. — John Brunke, 24, assistant cashier of the Farmers State Bank of Haxtun, a village thirty-seven miles east of here, was shot and instantly killed late Thursday by a robber. The robber was captured near the town after a battle with a posse of citizens. He gave the name of Jay Thompson, The robber entered the bank while the cashier, Emil Larson, was at luncheon. He covered Brunke with a revolver, forcing him back into the vault. Brunke attempted to snatch a revolver from a shelf in the vault and the robber fired, killing him. The robber then gathered up the cash in sight and made a dash from the building. Leaping upon a horse hitched near by he raced through the main street of the town, firing from  two revolvers at the crowd of citizens which had gathered at the sound of the first shot. Posses hastily organized and armed and started in pursuit. The robber was overtaken in a field eight miles east of Haxtun, where he turned to face his pursuers. After firing away all his ammunition he dropped his guns and again attempted a dash for liberty, but a member of the posse shot his horse from under him and he was captured.

Was One of Earliest Settlers In Haxtun Community Before Town Started

Mrs. Emil Larson, pioneer resident and highly respected citizen of the Haxtun community died at the family home here last Sunday evening following a long and tedious illness.

Funeral services were held from the Methodist church in Haxtun this afternoon. The business houses of the town were closed during the hours of the service that all might have an opportunity to pay their last respects.

Ellen W. Larson was born at Oakland, Nebraska, on July 21st, 1881, and died at her home in Haxtun, after a long and painful illness, on December 15, 1929.

In 1887 the family moved to Colorado and settled on the farm in the Fairfield district northeast of Haxtun. They were among the first settlers in this neighborhood, and took an active part in community development and in church work. Here Ellen went to school and attended the church and Sunday school of Fairfield.

Very early in life she showed a marked interest in church and Sunday school work, and later, during a revival meeting held in Haxtun, she gave her heart to Christ and united with the Methodist church. For over 20 years now Mrs. Larson has been one of its most active helpers and supporters, taking a deep interest in every department of the work. Active and energetic to a degree not often exhibited, she was untiring in her devotion to the cause of Christ and his kingdom. For over eight years she served most acceptably as superintendent of the primary department, and as superintendent of the junior league, and there are many of our young people who remember her with deep gratitude and appreciation for her kind and loving ministrations to them in their early childhood training in the knowledge of God and the Bible. She loved the children and was beloved of them, and nothing pleased her more than when happily engaged in teaching them the love of the Heavenly Father which she so beautifully exemplified in her own life.

Sister Larson loved her Savior and the church of her choice and was seldom absent from her place on Sunday. She was a woman of wide interests and took an active part not only in local community welfare through the Ladies' Aid society and Parent Teachers' association, but also in the wider interests of the Kingdom of God in the world. For many years she held office in the Woman's Foreign Missionary society of the church, and manifested deep concern for the salvation of those living in heathen lands, and by her generous gifts and unstinted service she sought to bring to them the blessings of the Gospel. Truly we may say, in the words of the Master, "She hath done what she could." And the commendation and reward of faithful service will be hers.

Hers was indeed a sweet, gracious and useful life. A lovely character and with a cheery and happy disposition to make the best of things, she faced the strain of a long and painful illness with such a royal spirit, and such trust and confidence in God, that it was a benediction to visit with her. Truly we may say of her as was said of her Divine Lord, "she was made perfect through sufferings." And she knew indeed that, "all things work together for good to them that love God." And Sister Larson loved God and tried her best to please Him.

She was a woman greatly beloved and respected, and she will be missed not only by her near friends and relatives but by the whole community. And the deepest sympathy of the community will be accorded to the bereaved family in their great loss.

In the year 1906, on June 27th, she was happily married to Emil Larson of Haxtun, and came to reside with him in town. Four children came to bless them in their wedded life, Conrad, Euphemia, Velma and Kermit. These with her beloved husband devoted themselves untiringly to care for her in her long illness, and with the following brothers and sisters and a host of friends and other relatives remain to mourn her departure.

Sigfred Anderson and Mrs. Hilma Young, of Denver, Mrs. Venie Tillberg, of Shenandoah, Iowa, Mrs. Ida Johnson of Havre, Montana, Mrs. Emily Johnson, Albert Anderson, Henry Anderson, Mrs. Sarah Olson, Benj. J. Anderson, and Mrs. Euphema Haskins of Haxtun, Colorado. Most of whom were present at the funeral.


In 1930 on Chase Street in Haxtun, Emil 50 is widowed, a real estate agent, and all four kids are still with him.  Conrad is an ice operator. 

Haxtun Harvest, Haxtun, Colorado, January 28, 1931
In Passing Emil Larson, Phillips County Loses One of Its Oldest and Most Highly Respected Pioneers

Emil Larson, 52, one of the oldest resident of Phillips County, died at the Haxtun hospital here shortly before five o’clock Tuesday evening.

Mr. Larson had been ill for some months and as a last resort an operation was performed a few days ago in the hope that he might be benefited. His weakened condition was against him and he survived the operation but a few days.

Mr. Larson was born in Sweden and came with his parents to America when he was but four years of age. They lived for a time at Oakland, Nebraska before locating on a homestead some miles southeast of here in 1887.

Mr. Larson’s mother died the same year the family moved to Colorado and the father died of injuries received in an accident when Emil was about 16 years of age.

Following the death of his father, Mr. Larson started working in the Manuel Anderson general merchandise store which at that time was located at Bryant, about 12 miles south of Haxtun. Later when the railroad was built and the town of Haxtun came into existence the Anderson store was moved to Haxtun and Mr. Larson continued his connection with the store for many years, with the exception of the time he spent attending business college at Grand Island, Nebraska.

He never severed his connection with the store definitely until the Farmers State Bank of Haxtun was organized when he resigned to take a position as cashier of that institution. Later he was made vice president of the bank, in which capacity he remained until forced to resign some years ago on account of failing health.

After regaining a measure of good health he embarked in the real estate business at Haxtun, later taking as his partner, his brother-in-law, A.R. Haskins, in which business he was engaged at the time of his death.

There are but comparatively few people left in Phillips County who have lived here continuously as long as Mr. Larson. During almost half a century, he had watched the country develop from a barren plain to a rich agricultural community such as it is today.

The nature of his activities in the community had made it possible for him to play an important part in this development. As a merchant and banker he was able to forward many worthy enterprises for the public good that have made him one of the best loved citizens of the Haxtun community.

He was one of the leading figures in the building of the Methodist church at Haxtun and for more than a quarter of a century had been a faithful and earnest church worker, doing all he could for the religious and social advancement of the community he was always proud to call his home.

During the 44 years of his residence in Haxtun he had served in almost every capacity in various community organizations that had as their purpose the common good. At the time of his death he was secretary of the official board of the Methodist church and treasurer of the Haxtun Commercial Club, having been elected to the latter position for a second term just a few weeks ago. He was an earnest worker in any good cause and a man whose honesty and integrity could not be questioned.

He is survived by four children, two boys and two girls. They are: Conrad, Euphemia, Velma and Kermit, all at home. He was preceded in death by his wife, who passed away December 15, 1929. So far as is known there are no other immediate relatives in this country, though there are many friends in Northeastern Colorado who will deeply mourn his passing.

Funeral services will be held from the Methodist church in Haxtun at 2:00 p.m. Friday afternoon. The Rev. Hugh Neville will preach the funeral sermon. The following friends and business associates will act as pallbearers: E.E. Intermill, J.C. Nauman, J.B. Ghent, F.D. Hartwell, A.T. Searle and H.M. Downs. Arrangements will be in charge of the Radford Funeral Home. Interment will be in the Haxtun cemetery. All places of business in Haxtun will be closed during the hours of the funeral.


In 1940 Conrad has married Louise A., now 31, and he's a laborer in Houston, Texas  They have Richard F. 5 and Michael C. 1, Texas.  They were in Haxtun in 1935.

Euphania has married Jesse Luelf, both 29 in 1940 Phillips County, and they have Leater 5 and Lois 2.

Euphemia Luelf, 95, of Loveland, died Aug. 19, 2005, at McKee Medical Center. Euphemia Larson was born July 4, 1910, in Haxtun, Colo., to Emil and Ellen (Anderson) Larson. She married Jesse Luelf in Holyoke, Colo., on Jan. 1, 1932. For many years she provided laundry service to Fitzsimmons Army Hospital from her home in Aurora. After living in Aurora, the couple moved to Estes Park in 1974, where she was a member of the Merry Marthas and the Estes Park Christian Women’s Club and several Bible study groups. She also enjoyed camping, hiking, and ceramic work which she sold at the Heritage Shop on Elkhorn Ave. in Estes Park. Jesse Luelf died June 28, 1999, after 67 and a-half-years of marriage. In 2000 Euphemia moved to Merrill Gardens in Loveland and in May, 2004 to Good Samaritan Village in Loveland. She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother and a sister and grandson Doug Luelf. Survivors include her daughter Lois Harvill and her husband, Jim of Estes Park; son Lester Luelf and his wife Darlene of Aurora; a brother Kermit Larson of Mesa, Ariz.; three, grandchildren Lisa Marquez and her husband Victor, Terri Harvill and Mark Luelf and his wife Jenny; five great grandchildren, Jesse Marquez, Cody Harvill, Riley Luelf, Ashlee Luelf and Daniel Luelf.

Hoppy horse weekly

In my last epistle I promised to tell more about Haxtun and its surroundings. When we last met it was at Gust Young’s place. Then we had plenty of time to talk as it was snowing the whole day and the wind from north was blowing sharply. The day after was a fine day so I when away to my old friend C.A. Johnson, where I borrowed a horse and a wagon, and away I went first to G.  Paulson. Of course he wanted to talk but time was too short. He had lots to bringing in his crops but he took his time and we had some drinks. Emil Sandell had gone away to cure his health but his old lady helped me accomplish my errand. A. M. Anderson was happy as a young man that had received –yes-from his girl-he was so happy because he had sowed 20 bushels bafre?? (Perhaps it should be “havre” that is oats) and from that he harvested 800 bushels; do that if you can. John Björklund is a great farmer too. Wherever you go you see happy faces. Chas. E. Anderson didn’t show a sad face either.

And then back to Haxtun where I met A. M. Axelson. He was busy packing farmers’ products to be sent to a farmers ‘meeting in Canada, and surely Haxtun will receive the first Prize. Now I am old but long ago I was young but I have never seen such a rich harvest on what we call “dry farming”, than the one in Haxtun. Mr. Axelson is the oldest settler in this region. He was the first to settle down and build house in this wild prairie. He sold lands. He was glad to society flourish. He lent me some horses, so I could travel like a gentleman, and so I went away south of the town, where I met the two brothers Sharp, and they gave me a reception better than if the president himself had come. And in the afternoon I made myself ready to leave Haxtun to go to Julesburg.

The first man I met was the master tailor L. J. Lundell with family. He owned an estate 4 miles outside the town, where he had horses, cows and calves. He had so many pigs that I couldn’t count. In town he has a big neatly house so he has earned a deal for days to come. In Julesburg there are not many Swedes, but outside there are plenty of them. I waited for half a day for an opportunity to go with one of them, but probably they had heard that I was there, so they stayed at home. I had to hire for a ride. The first man I met was just silly and he let me know that it was a shame to pay for a newspaper. We live in a free country, and I never pay my debts and I will never pay for a paper. His neighbors told me that it was true. Old debts he never pays, and new debts will rest till they become old. And then we came to Sam Friskoff, a first class gentleman. He offered me to stay till the end. Both he and his wife made my life so happy. And his daughters..

Benjamin John Anderson was born March 17, 1887, in Oakland, Nebraska, passed away October 13, 1967, at the age of 80 years.

Mr. Anderson lived most of his life in Haxtun. He moved to Phillips County, Colorado, with his parents, Edward and Augusta Anderson, at the age of three months. He grew to early manhood in the Fairfield community and at the age 16 left home to make his way in the world.

Between the years 1905 and 1908, he worked in a lumber camp in Oregon and was also employed in California. During this time, he acquired an interest in the lumber business. He went from California to Nebraska, where he attended and graduated from the Grand Island School of Business in 1909. Returning to Colorado, he started his career in the lumber business.

In 1918, he accepted the position as manager of the Haxtun Lumber Company, and served in that capacity until his retirement in that capacity in 1954. He enjoyed 46 years of successful business activity in this community.

He was united in marriage to Ruth Lundberg on April 4, 1917.

During the years he was in business, he served on the town council and was a member of the Chamber of Commerce. He was interested in the development and growth of his community and made his business one of service to the town and surrounding communities.

He was a member of the Berean Fundamental church of Haxtun. He was faithful in attendance and on Sunday preceding his death he worshipped, as usual, in both the morning and evening services here in this church which he loved. One of his greatest joys was watching the young people develop into men and women with spiritual character. He had a keen interest in every phase of the youth program and missionary endeavors of his church.

Left to mourn his passing are his wife, Ruth; four children, Wilma Harbough of Denver, Phyllis Atkins of Haxtun, Delbert of Denver, and Robert of Cleveland, Ohio; four granddaughters, Janeen, Bonnie and Lenore Anderson of Denver and Kate Anderson of Cleveland; four grandsons, Robert Anderson of Cleveland, James Harbaugh, Denver, and Leon and Kirby of Haxtun; one sister, Mrs. Sarah Olson of Haxtun, and many other relatives and a host of friends.
