Pueblo Chieftain, September 7, 1914, Page 10

"A.L. Dickerman died at his late home, 708 Summit street, yesterday afternoon after an illness that lasted but little more than a week. He was 75 years old, but in spite of his advanced years had enjoyed remarkably good health until quite recently. Mr. Dickerman came to Pueblo at the time of the building of the union depot and was employed on that structure during the time of its erection. He then went with the Pueblo smelter where he held a responsible position until a short time ago. Quiet and unassuming in his manner, kindly and genial in his relation to his fellow men, he was a person who was liked by all who knew him. He was born in Topsum, Vt., and was a member of the Fourth regiment of volunteers from that state during the civil war, but was not a member of the local post of G.A.R. He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. P.M. Lord of Los Angeles and Mrs. Luna D. Pelton of this city, also one son, George H. Dickerman, of Price, Utah. His wife, who died eight years ago, was the sister of ex-Governor James H. Peabody and the aunt of Mrs. F.W. Cooper and Mrs. M.D. Thatcher of this city. The funeral will held from the Whiton chapel Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The Rev. Clarence W. Way, D.D., will conduct the services and the interment will be in Roselawn cemetery. Friends are requested to omit flowers."

"The funeral of the late Aldrich L. Dickerman was held from the Whiton parlors yesterday p.m. at 3 o'clock. The Rev. Clarence W. Weyer conducted the services. G.A.R. Post No. 8 attended in a body and held their services at the grave. The pallbearers were W.W. Leslie, A.L. Watkins, W. F. Drake, C.B. Carlile, H.J. Smith and U.T. Krause. Interment was in the family lot in Roselawn Cemetery."

Pueblo Star-Journal, October 23, 1907, Page 2

"Mrs. A.L. Dickerman, No. 702 Summit avenue, died last night after several days of a severe sickness known as acute peritonitis. Mrs. Dickerman became sick last Friday and since that time has suffered intensely. Everything possible was done to alleviate her sufferings, but it was found necessary to take her to the Pueblo hospital and, under the care of the best physicians in the city, she did not seem to improve and last night she died. Mrs. Dickerman was very well and favorably known in this city, having been a prominent member of church circles and woman's clubs. Mrs. Dickerman was born in [St.] Johnsbury, Vt., but for the past twenty-six years has lived in this city. Deceased was 63 years of age and is survived by numerous relatives in this city and Denver, among whom are her brothers, Ex-Governor Peabody of Canon City and Mayor W.F. Peabody of Denver. The children are Mrs. Carrie Lord of Denver, Mrs. Luna Telpon of Riverside, Calif., and George Dickerman of this city. Mrs. Charles Carlile, Mrs. F.W. Cooper and Mrs. M.D. Thatcher are nieces of the deceased. George and Will Sweeney of this city are her nephews. The relatives have been notified of her death and the funeral arrangements will not be made until they are heard from. Mrs. Telpon started from Riverside, Calif. last evening for Pueblo. Mrs. Lord has been in the city for the past two days." (Some backdrop information regarding the obituaries for Mr. and Mrs. Dickerman: The Union Depot, which Mr. Dickerman apparently helped build, is a Pueblo landmark and is still in use today as an office building and banquet facility. In my opinion as an engineer and a life-long resident of Pueblo, the Union Depot is one of the finest buildings I've ever seen. A Mrs. M.D. Thatcher is listed as a niece of Mrs. Dickerman. Mrs. Thatcher's husband was Mahlon D. Thatcher. Mahlon and his brother, John A. Thatcher, were 'movers & shakers' in Pueblo's early history, owning numerous banks, businesses & buildings and financiers of many more such activities. Many buildings in Pueblo still carry the Thatcher name. - Dennis N. Fitzsimmons, December 6, 2013)
