    Benjamin Inman arrived from Cortland county, N. Y., in 1832. Mrs. Inman thus recited their advent into the wilds: "A spot large enough for our cabin was cleared, then it was raised and covered with basswood bark. Mr. Inman was required to cut his road from Bentley Creek, then father took his ox-team and moved us in on a sled. My husband had to work out most of the time and frequently I was left alone from Monday till Saturday evening without even a cat or dog to keep me company. One evening as I closed the door a bear stuck his nose in after me. We did not want for meat as Mr. Inman took great delight in hunting, and killed many deer. We illuminated our cabin with candles made from deer fat." Mr. and Mrs. Inman had a family of nine children and lived to celebrate their golden wedding.

    Charter Member AdAmAn Club is Stricken by Heart Attack
    Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph April 3, 1940.
    Fred Barr, the Pikes Peak region's outstanding trail-blazer, died from a heart attack at 11:13
a.m. Tuesday in Willard, N.M. where he and Mrs. Barr were visiting Mr. Barr's sister, Mrs.
Guy C. Osborne. he and Mrs. Barr left here a month ago for a visit in New Mexico, and about
two weeks ago he became ill, but apparently had recovered when death overtook him Tuesday morning.
    Word of his death was received at the Chamber of Commerce by Tom Cunning, manager, in a telegram from New Mexico that Mr. Barr had dropped dead.
    He and Mrs. Barr had been living at 6 McKinley Place. They also spent much time at "Barr's cabin" which is situated eight miles above Manitou Springs on the famous Barr trail.
    Mr. Barr was 58 years old and was a native of Arkansas. He had lived in the region for 40 years.
    He became widely known in the region and thruout the country as the builder of the Barr trail to the summit of Pikes peak, the trail being constructed under his direction. It was completed in 1921.
    Barr's cabin, or "Barr's camp," as it is called, has been the first port of call for the members of the AdAmAn club on their annual ascent of Pikes peak to set off fireworks on the summit of the world famous mountain. He was on of the original members of the club and always took part in the annual trek, which is made in time to set off the fireworks display on New Years eve.
    Mr. Barr was a firm believer in trails thru the mountains of the region, his opinion being that the best views of the beauty offered by the Pikes peak mountain area are to be obtained from hikes along trails, rather than by driving over highways in automobiles.
    About 1905 he operated a horse-and buggy sightseeing establishment near Adams crossing, providing horse-drawn vehicles for persons desirous of visiting the more easily accessible scenic spots of the region.
    About the time the Barr trail was completed to the top of Pikes peak he erected a cabin on the trail, which is so situated that it makes a convenient stopping place for hikers who do not whish to make the walk to the summit in one day.
    Mr. Barr is survived by his widow, Mrs. Anna Barr; and five sisters, Mrs. E. B. Wieber, Oakland, Calif.; Mrs. J. Virginia Kantz, Los Angeles; Mrs. R. A. Inman, Oakland, Calif.; Miss Frances Barr, New York and Mrs. Guy C. Osborne, Willard N.M.

Headline: WES FARRELL 'Hang On Sloopy' was one of his songs
Publication Date: March 03, 1996 Source: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette  Page: B-5

Wes Farrell, a music executive and songwriter whose four-decade career included the hit pop song "Hang On Sloopy" and the music for the television series "The Partridge Family," died Thursday at a resort on Fisher Island, Fla. He was 56 and lived in Coconut Grove, Fla.
The cause was cancer, said his wife, Jean Inman Farrell.
Mr. Farrell was born in New York City. He entered the music business as a songwriter at the Brill Building in Manhattan, writing scores of songs before his first big hit, "Hang On Sloopy" (recorded by the McCoys in 1965).
Several other songs he wrote became top-10 singles, including "Come a Little Bit Closer" (recorded by Jay and the Americans in 1964) and "Come On Down to My Boat" (recorded by Every Mother's Son in 1967). He also wrote "Boys," which the Beatles recorded in 1963 on their first American album.
He signed Neil Diamond to his first publishing deal and produced music for the Cowsills, the Everly Brothers and Wayne Newton. He formed his own record company, Chelsea, to release Newton's first top-10 hit, "Daddy, Don't You Walk So Fast." In the 1970s, he created music for "The Partridge Family."
Most recently, Mr. Farrell was the chief executive and president of Music Entertainment Group, an umbrella for several music organizations, including one of the country's largest Christian music companies, the Benson Music Group.
