Info on McCabe Families of Greenwood Cemetery
McCABE, Edward - Last Wednesday another of the old residents of Red Cliff passed over the great divide.
Edward McCABE was born in Ireland, January 9th 1861; coming to this country when a year old. He has been a resident of Red Cliff for the past twenty years and has been engaged in the newspaper business continuously since coming here.

He was one of those men who make friends out of acquaintances and retained them. He was a man of wide scope being a graduate of college and well versed.

He was a single man and leaves a brother, Wm. McCABE, editor of the Eagle County Times, the only relative in this country.

The funeral will take place Friday afternoon from the GRAHAM undertaking parlor.[20 Oct. 1910, Eagle County Blade, p1]

A most distressing accident, that has caused much anguish to the families directly involved as well as having cast a gloom over the entire community, occurred last Friday evening about 5 o'clock.

Myron McCABE and Harry NIMS were hunting rabbits in the pine wood west of the cemetery, and Harry accidentally shot his companion, the wound resulting fatally in about fifteen hours. Myron was the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. William McCABE, editor of the Times of this place, and the other boy is the son of the editor of this paper. This statement is made that the reader may appreciate the position in which the chronicler of the lamentable affair is placed on each paper. It is needless to dwell upon the distress and sorrow that each family feel, and especially the mental anguish suffered and to be suffered by the unfortunate boy responsible. Myron was twelve years of age and his companion a year older. Bother were armed with 22 rifles. Harry had shot one rabbit and the boys believed they say another. Myron was given the first shot in this instance, Harry waiting with his gun cocked to make a shot should his companion miss. So soon as Myron shot he started for the object shot at, getting directly in front of harry when the latter's gun was accidentally discharged - and as usual in such accidents, Harry is unable to say how this occurred.

The wounded boy fell unable to rise. His companion picked him up and carried him fully three fourths of a mile to the border of the town where the attention of others was attracted and he secured help. It was found that the wounded boy was shot in the body just above the hip and to the right of the small of the back. On the advice of Dr. GILPIN he was hastened to the hospital at Salida with all speed, but expired soon after arrival there.

Myron was an uncommonly bright and manly boy and a general favorite in the community. He and his companion in the lamentable hunting trip were fast friends, and the sad termination of it was purely an accident which regrets and reproaches on this own part and that of his parents will never undo.

The funeral occurred on Monday at the family residence, the Rev Father DWYER of Glenwood Springs conducting the services.(27 Sep 1906, Eagle County Blade, p.1)

Please call the cemetery office and ask for the grave location. Photo requests cannot be fulfilled without Section, Range/Row and Lot numbers as cemetery is too big. Thank you!

Blythe/Blithe requests
I was able to find two of the three requests that you had for the Blythe family. There was a stone that was with the two next to it that was an Eliza Blithe (not Elizabeth) I am not sure if this is the person you are looking for since the death date is 1904 not 1914 as you had listed. Please get back to me if this is the person you are looking for I dont want to upload the wrong headstone to the request :) Have a wonderful weekend :)

William & Fannie McCabe

I was finally able to get up the hill in Red Cliff to the cemetery. I was able to find the grave for William McCabe, but none for Fannie. Next to William was a grave for Edward McCabe. These graves were marked with a metal placard on a rebar. As you can see in the photo, William's was detached from the post. The area is very wooded and overgrown, so there could have been a grave there that has disappeared with time.

You have my permission to use the photos if you wish. I will be inputting the photos today.
