Wow, what a story. On the Lafayette & Louisville site there is this entry "ORVIS, Unknown ND [No Date] SUG [Sugarloaf].
Central City is in Gilpin County ; try their board and someone may have information. I would think in a case like that there would have been a trial or at the least a coroners inquest ; probably in Gilpin County.
I was going to ask who raised them and where but I just noticed that the girls were married (double ceremony) at the "home of the brides' father". That cemetery entry is curious ; I have examples where no stone was set but "Unknown" makes me wonder.

Didn't see any cemetery listing for these Jones' and no article past the 1881 birth ; makes me think they moved.
