After two years at Washington and Jefferson colleges, Trew went to work in a quartz mine, and later worked as a station agent in Monument, Colorado. In 1874 he was an organizer of the Bergens Park and Fairplay Wagon Road Company. After their marriage, Trew and Dellie lived first in Monument, where Trew operated a drug store and established The Weekly Mentor, the community's first paper. For a short time, Trew had a general store in Salida, Colorado. In 1881 the family moved to Gunnison, Colorado. After a few years there, Trew had to close his bankrupt drugstore, and in 1885 they moved once again, this time to Delta, Colorado where Trew had purchased, in better times, 160 acres sight unseen. Farmwork was difficult for Trew, and after several years of hard work and poverty, he studied law and was admitted to the bar. He entered the real estate business and was a founder of the Farmers and Merchants bank, where he was working when he was killed in a robbery attempt in 1893. Throughout his life, Trew suffered from various ailments which prevented him from working at times. As long as he lived, his family was dependent upon the charity of relatives for their survival. He led an exciting and varied life which is documented in Ruth Bradley's "Dellie", and in the family correspondance.


BLACHLY, Andrew T., b 1847; 1905 Bio, Delta County, Colorado http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/co/delta/bios/blachlyat.txt

Donated September 29, 2001
Transcribed by Judy Crook <jlcrook@rof.net> from the book:
Progressive Men of Western Colorado
Published 1905, A.W. Bowen & Co., Chicago, Ill.

The late Andrew T. Blachly, of Delta, whose tragic death on September 7, 1893, at the age of forty-six, by a daring hold-up and robbery of the Farmers & Merchants' Bank, of which he was at the time cashier, awakened universal regret and horror throughout the Western slope of this state, was born in Dane county, Wisconsin, on September 22, 1847, and was the son of Eben and Jane (Trew) Blachly, of that state, both of whom are now deceased. The father was a doctor and after many years of general practice in Wisconsin, moved to the vicinity of Kansas City, Missouri, where he opened and conducted a school for Negro children, carrying it on in conjunction with his wife, who had, like himself, received a college education and was well qualified for the work. They kept the school going mainly by their own endeavors and at their own expense from 1866 until 1877, when the father died and the mother sold her property and joined her son in the West. They were the parents of five sons and one daughter. The first and second born of the sons served in the Civil war. One was captured and confined in Libby prison and the other died in a military hospital. Andrew received a good education, attending the Lodi (Wisconsin) Academy and pursuing a partial course at Washington and Jefferson College, in Washington, Pennsylvania. He left home in 1869 and came to Colorado, where he clerked in the office of the Kansas Pacific Railroad at Denver part of the time, teaching school during the rest until 1872. From that time until 1878 he was occupied in mercantile business for himself at Monument, Colorado, and also published a paper called the Mentor for two years. In 1880 he moved to Salida and kept a drug store until 1881, when he changed his base to Gunnison and there carried on the same business until his health broke down in 1885. He then moved to Delta county and took up a homestead on which he lived five years. He planted a few acres in fruit, but sold the place before the trees began to bear much. Locating at Delta, he opened a real-estate office and pushed his business vigorously and profitably for two years. At the end of that period, in company with D.S. Baldwin, he organized the Farmers and Merchants' Bank of Delta. He served as cashier of this institution until September 7, 1893, when just after the bank had been opened for business three robbers walked into the room and ordered him to throw up his hands and turn over to them the cash. Instead of doing this he called for help and the leader of the outlaws shot him, killing him instantly. The robbers then went behind the bars and talking all the money in sight, made their way to the back door where their horses were tied. As they mounted their horses and passed to the rear of the post office they encountered W.R. Simpson, who had heard of the robbery. He stepped into an alley and shot two of them dead. The third man, who was their guard while they made the raid, succeeded in getting away with the money they had taken. At the time of Mr. Blachly's death he was living on a ranch he had purchased a short time before. On this property his family resided until recently and under the wise and vigorous management of his widow it became one of considerable value and productiveness. Mr. Blachly was married on September 7, 1877, to Miss Mary A. Bradley, a native of Bangkok, Siam, the daughter of Dan B. and Sarah (Blachly) Bradley, the former born in Utica, New York, and the latter in Dane county, Wisconsin. The father died in 1876 and the mother in 1893. To Mr. and Mrs. Blachly eight children were born, all sons and all now living. They are Arthur T., Fred F., Clarence D., Howard D., Harold W., Ralph R., Louis B. and Edward H. By their help Mrs. Blachly has been able to carry on the operations of the ranch and greatly enlarge its productiveness. She sold the one on which they were living at the time of her husband's death and bought another of forty acres. On this she has four acres in fruit and also runs a fine herd of cattle in the hills. She and her sons are very successful in managing the business, and she has won a high reputation as a business woman of excellent judgment. The oldest son was fifteen years old when his father died and the youngest one year old. The first named is now a student in the medical department of the State University at Boulder, and will be graduated there in a short time, after which he will practice his profession in the neighborhood of his home. Mrs. Blachly has prospered in all her undertakings and made money steadily. She is regarded as a very good manager and a lady of great industry and enterprise. Her husband was a Republican in politics, a Mason in fraternal life and a Presbyterian in church membership. She is also a Presbyterian and she and the sons are in sympathy with the principles of the Republican party in political affairs. Their ranch is located one mile and a half east of Delta, on the Garnett mesa.

bullet Eben BLACHLY M.D. was born on 28 Apr 1800 in Mercer County, Pennsylvania?. He died on 21 Jul 1877 in Quindaro, Kansas. Dr. Eben Blachly passed the Ohio State Medical Examination in 1828 ane then practiced medicine in Warren, Ohio for about 10 years. He moved with his father to Dane County, Wisconson in 1846. A Congregational church was organized in 1848 and he was its pastor. Eben had a farm in Dane County. About the end of the civil war Dr. Blachly was captured by the confederates while searching for one of his sons who had also been captured. He was tried as a spy, and was placed under a tree with a noose around his neck. Granted permission to pray, he prayed so long and effectively that he was released. In 1866, Eben and Jane Blachly sold their Wisconson farm and holdings and moved to Kansas to 130 acres purchased from the Wyandotte Indians. 30 of these acres were lost to squatters who had established rights there. The Blachlys opened Freedman's University on the remaining land, for the education and spiritual improvement of newly freed blacks. When Eben became too ill to continue the work, the university was turned over to a church group, except for the stone house in Quindaro where Eben died.
Jane Trew Blachly wrote in 1875 "Your brother Dr. is very much engaged about the school, trying to bring the property into a shape to support the school. His health is very good & he is very bright, sister thinks he is the smartest old man she ever saw. He preaches to the whites now the Colored preferring their own more excitable preacher. He has a sore on his lip of ten years standing & a large wart near the left eye. They are pronounced cancerous by many physicians. He however does not quite believe it. Some call it lupus a malignant disease but not so bad as cancer."

KSHS LIBRARY ADDS WESTERN UNIVERSITY (QUINDARO) RECORDS
A rare 1926 Western University yearbook from the Quindaro (now Kansas City, Kan.) community was recently added to Kansas State Historical Society's collection. The "Bulldog" features class photos and interesting stories and comments about students attending the university.
Western University evolved from Rev. Eben Blachly's effort to begin a school for the children of escaped slaves around 1862 in Quindaro. In 1865 the school was incorporated as Freedman's University. The young school struggled, and in 1881 it was taken over by the African Methodist Episcopal Church and renamed Western University.
In 1899, the state established the Industrial Department as part of the university, and through the early part of the 20th century, the church operated a seminary and offered collegiate and college preparatory coursework, while the state offered commercial and vocational training. The Depression and deteriorating relations between the church and state caused another decline, and the school closed in 1943; the Industrial Department was consolidated with the Kansas Vocational Institute, another African American school, in Topeka.
The yearbook can be viewed in the research room of the Center for Historical Research at the Kansas History Center, 6425 SW Sixth Avenue, Topeka, KS 66615-1099. For more information call 785-272-8681, ext. 117; TTY 785-272-8683; or visit the KSHS web site at www.kshs.org.
