Colorado Citizen, October 16, 1879, December 23, 1880; Colorado County Deed Records, Book V, p. 490, Book 9, p. 32. It will be remembered that the German Lutherans bought their church building in Columbus from the English Lutherans, when they too failed to fill it. In Eagle Lake, the Catholics had their own failure. Despite the May 2, 1881 acquisition of a lot for a church, no sufficient congregation emerged (see Colorado County Deed Records, Book X, p. 71).
