Bill Doolin and Elmer McCurdy graves.

Grave of Elmer McCurdy the Sideshow Mummy

Once inside the cemetery there's a small sign for Boot Hill. Follow it to your left and to the far side of the cemetery. Elmer and Bill's stones are on either side of a tree. Poor Elmer, all those years being dragged around like a dummy, when in fact he was a deceased man. I can't imagine the smell.
