Biographical Note* Ben Russell Pollock Colvin was the son of Ella and Ezekle Colvin, born in Rock Port, Missouri on 18 December, 1877. His father was killed in a train accident in 1879 and in the fall of 1880, Ben and his mother, Ella, moved to Deadwood, South Dakota. There Ella ran a boarding house for miners at Strawberry Gulch. Ben first attended school in Deadwood. Then in 1890 his mother and stepfather moved to a ranch on the Bell Fourche River, three miles from Hulett, Wyoming. His teachers in the area were Libby Baxter and Nels Davis. In1893, Ben went to Spearfish, South Dakota for school, boarding with Mr. and Mrs. Bill Todds. In 1894 he attended the Spearfish Normal and the next year he went to Business School at Lincoln, Nebraska. In 1896 he attended Business School at Sioux City, Iowa, where he graduated. By 1897, Ben was back in Wyoming working for Driskills on the Round-up. During the roundup, Ed Wolfork, a Cross Anchor cowboy, shot Willie Gillanin an argument. Ben sat up with poor Willie for three nights before he finally died. Ben was determined to have a place of his own and in 1899 filed on a homestead in Red Canyon, between Alva and Hulett, Wyoming. Ben quickly built a home, for on 9 of April, 1899, Miss Lana French became his wife in a ceremony performed in the new house by Reverend J.S.F. Wood. Ben and Lana lived on the homestead for two years, then sold the place to George Morrison and moved to Deadwood, South Dakota. Ben went to work in the Round House of the Chicago Northwestern Railroad. In 1903 they moved to Chadron, Nebraska, and Ben was a fireman on the railroad from Chadron, Nebraska to Deadwood, South Dakota. Two daughters were born to the Colvins, Marjorie Ann, the 2nd of December, 1903 and Mildred, the 24th of October, 1905. In January 1908 railroad ties were being cut on Ben’s former homestead and on others. Vic French had the contract of skidding and hauling them to the Belle Fourche River bank. Vernon Powell and his father built a houseboat and had a contract to float the ties to Belle Fourche, when the ice went out of the river in the spring. Moving back to Wyoming about 1910 or 1911, Ben operated a sawmill in Red Canyon and on Little Beaver Creek. He sold the mill to Ed Willson and the family moved to Alva, Wyoming. They operated a dance hall and restaurant and later a hardware store. Ben was appointed postmaster at Alva 15, September, 1913, a position he held for one year. Later he served as assistant postmaster while the postmaster, Dillon B. Ruland served his country in World War I. In 1922, Ben and Lana moved to Lavoye, Wyoming, just south of Midwest. In partnership with Otto Lundblad, formerly of Aladdin, Wyoming, he operated a meat market during the boom days of that small oil town. This venture ended in tragedy. A gas explosion in their double apartment killed Mr. and Mrs. Lundblad and their two small sons in December 1927. About this time the Salt Creek Bank closed its doors and the Colvins lost all of their savings. Broke and disheartened they returned to their home in Alva, Wyoming. Ben continued to work off and on as a sawyer for Shrum and Jones Sawmills for several years. In November of 1936 Ben had a crew of WPA (Works Project Administration) men working on repairing the bridge south of Alva. In 1942 to 1944 he worked for the Belle Fourche Sugar Mill and 1945 to1947 he was employed by Kewitts Construction Company while they built anew road between Midwest and Casper, Wyoming. In 1951 Ben and Lana moved to Rapid City, South Dakota to care for their oldest daughter. When she died a year later, they returned to Alva. The next ten years were a peaceful time, spent with their family and friends in a quiet community. They celebrated their sixtieth Wedding Anniversary in 1959, just a few miles from where they had started their life together. Ben passed away July, 1962 and was laid to rest in the Alva Cemetery. Ben Colvin’s brand was B<>P.2
