    : Kathy,

    : Thanks. I have quite a few more names and locations, but most of them are related to Tombstone and Arizona, even though many of them are buried elsewhere. One notable "badman" I forgot from the last list is Clay Allison. He is buried on the grounds of the West Of The Pecos Museum in Pecos, TX. He died in 1887, drunk while riding a buckboard. He was thrown off the buckboard, and one of the wheels ran over his neck, breaking it.

It's ashame but some people think that the relic's found in our ghosttowns belong to them to take and make a profit from.
