Not far to the north of this spot
is located the Old Boot Hill ceme
tery, having been so named because
of the many cowboys who died with
their boot on, and who were buried
in thi cemetery, located on a small
knoll. There were no stone to
mark the resting place of these bay,
but a simple cedar stake or a mounc?.
There was no caretaker to allot the
space and the ones who were par
ticularly interested in the bunal
simply picked out the place they
thought would be easiest digging and
a rough grave was made. Some time
the sun slowly coming up over the
hills to eastward would reveal a new
grave which had been made during
the night. Few cared to Investigate
the why and where-fores of this new
grave, and it was just another ould
