    Smile Ghost Town Cemetaries

    Hello everyone; I'm from Las Vegas, NV and I really enjoy going to ghost towns. I have visited numous cemetaries in a lot of ghost towns. The ones that come to mind are Grafton, UT, Virginia City, NV and Belmont, NV. I am in search of anyone from my area that would like to get out on weekends and go ghost towning. There are still quite a few near Vegas that I would really enjoy seeing. I always take my digital camera to capture the ruins. I have a very thick Nevada Mining and Ghost Towns book and I read about the towns before I visit them. In fact, on this site I found the ranch that Charles Manson was living with his so called "family" and was captured after the Tate murders. I think it would be interesting to visit there, as well. I have a facination for Death Valley and I know that right now the flowers are blooming, but I don't enjoy going alone and it's not safe either. I thought this venue would be a good way to find others like myself who enjoys ghost towning. Leave me a message; I will answer all. Take care, Celene (aka, DesertLove) ;O)

    Talking Graveyards and cemeteries, etc.

    How about the spot where western cowboy movie star Tom Mix died? There's a memorial at the spot on Hwy. 79 between Florence and Tucson, Az. He was also a good friend of Wyatt Earp in his Hollywood days. If I remember correctly, Wyatt was also a pallbearer at Tom's funeral. Anyway, it makes for a quick pit stop while travelling the green and beautiful desert this time of year.

    Default Tom mix

    Yeah. Tom Mix is interred at Forest Lawn with many other famous folks. The suitcase that did him in is enshrined in the Tom Mix Museum here in Dewey, Oklahoma. OJ

    Celia "Mattie" Blaylock Earp actually died in the town of Pinal, Arizona and was buried in the Silver King/Pinal cemetery that was located near the Silver King-Pinal road. The original grave was vandalized but there is a marker not far from the old gravesite that has been erected.

    The location of the grave is near the town of Superior, Arizona
