Clark County Clipper, January 24, 1929
DEATH OF COLONEL JACQUINS
We are in receipt of a letter from J. R. Walden of Winfield enclosing a clipping
from the Winfield Courier telling of the death of Colonel Ed. Jacquins
who resided in this section of the southwest in the early days. Mr. Walden says
that the deceased at one time owned a ranch in Oklahoma a few miles southeast of
Englewood. The clipping follows:
Colonel Ed Jacquins
Word has been received by Winfield friends of the death of Colonel Ed Jacquins,
who died suddenly at his home in Los Angeles on January 13. Funeral services
were held on January 16 and burial was made in Riverside. Colonel Jacquins was
apparently in good health and at the time of his death was ready to go for his
daily walk. He died instantly, the report say.
Colonel Jacquins who was approaching 90 years of age, was one of the earliest
residents of southern Kansas having come to the state when a young man, he took
over a large tract of land near Cedar Vale and became a ranch man. He was
elected to the state legislature from that area, and it was due to his
influences that the county was named Chautauqua, friends here said today. Mr.
Jacquins had formerly made his home in Chatauqua, N. Y
When he retired from active work of raising stock, Colonel Jacquins moved to
Winfield to take up residence. He with his family lived in the house which was
later remodeled in to the Lutheran Orphan's home. The Colonel and his family
moved to Los Angeles about fifteen years ago, after having lived in Winfield for
a number of years. -Winfield Courier.
