Buried at Boothill Cemetary - John Slaughter, Billy Clanton, Tom
& Frank McLaury, Lester Moore (Here lies Lester Moore; Four
slugs from a .44; No Les, no more), Six-Shooter Jim, and over
200 more at Boothill Graveyard. See some of the tombstone epitaphs
in our slide show. One interesting fact, is that while most were
buried there in the 1880's, one was buried in 1946. That was Emmet
Nunnelley. With the help of the Tombstone residents, he
spent the last year of his life helping to restore the cemetary.
He requested to be laid to rest there, which he was.
