(The Pagosa Springs Sun February 14, 1936) Ralph E. Flaugh, an old time resident of Pagosa Springs and Archuleta County, died from a heart attack on Sunday morning, while he was going about his work at the Court house. Funeral services were held Tuesday Afternoon, Feb 11, at 2 o'clock at the M. E. Church, by Rev. S. Milton Jarrat. Interment was made in the Hill Top Cemetery, beside the grave of his wife. Mr. Flaugh was born in Sagerstown, Crawford County, Pennsylvania, March 19, 1864, being almost 72 years of age at the time of his death. He came to Silverton, Colorado, in 1885, where he and his brother Rudy remained for a while, and then came down to Archuleta County to take up land. On November 9, 1897 he was married to Miss Deliah Diel, in Pagosa by the Rev. Barnhart. Mrs. Flaugh preceded him in death March 19, 1926. Mr. Flaugh remained here until sometime in 1929, he took a prolonged journey through Texas, and spent some little time in California,m returning to Pagosa Springs about two years ago. About a year ago upon the death of Mr. Speelman, Ralph was given the place of janitor of the Court House the place he filled at the time of his death. Of his immediate family, but one brother, the eldest, Rudy survives, whose address is San Diego, California. There are sever nieces and nephews who survive, Mrs. Pearl Best, Los Angeles, and Mrs. Emma Jones, San Diego, California, Mrs. Alice Parmenter, Allison Colorado and Mr. Von Flaugh of Aztec, New Mexico, Mrs. Carrie Chambers, Mrs. Bell Macht, Messrs Fred, Leon, Tom and James Flaugh, all of Pagosa Springs. While Ralph Flaugh was unassuming in his attitude toward life, and a man who attended strictly to his own affairs, he will be greatly missed amount his associates and friends, because they knew him as an honest and upright citizen, a man whose home life was of the highest standard and as a neighbor and friend he could be depended upon in fair weather or extreme weather.
