    Yep - still there and still intact Except for the fact that no one knows for sure the exact burial site. It all happenned in the winter and they never actually made it to the top of the hill where the cemetary is located with the coffin. Speculation is that it is now buried in someone's back yard.
    Here is a picture of the tombstone from on my site. http://www.rockymountainprofiles.com...bstone%204.JPG .

    Great photo Rocky, We wonder if thats original stone or has it been replaced over the years One of Doc, relative lives in San Deigo We will ask around and see if that stone is the original.

    My friend Lee Silva, the author of the book "Wyatt Earp the Cowtown Years" Vol. I might have the answer.

    Thanks again Rocky, for that great clear photograph

    That stone was placed there later. I believe by the city of Glenwood Springs as they knew it would be a tourist attraction. (**** it got me there)

    Default Help - Frisco Cemetery Project

    I recieved this note from a gentleman in Utah. Can anyone help me answer his question? Read below. If you have an answer let me know and I will forward to him. I left his name and email off on purpose. THANKS

    My name is XXXXX and I live in Cedar City, Utah about 70 miles from the ghost town of Frisco. While walking around Frisco over the Presidentís Day weekend I discovered the Frisco cemetery and am interested in obtaining more information about it. Iím President of a Catholic menís group (Knights f Columbus) in Cedar City and am thinking that cleaning the cemetery up would make a good service project for our group, but would like more information on how many people are buried there and if possible their names. A plat of grave locations and names would be most helpful. Iíve contacted the Utah State Historical Society, but all they can tell me is that there is a cemetery, which I already know, and that they record 28 people buried there. Do you have any more specific information about the cemetery or know who may?

    Default Frisco

    Rocky: As the husband of a good Mormon lady who specializes in Geneology, and who often locates folks in old cemeteries, I would refer your Frisco friend to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in SLC. One of the Churches projects has long been the location of old cemeteries and recordation of those buried there. OJ

    Johnnie: Good account of the doin's of Johnny Behind the Deuce, by Bill Kelly, on Google. Sounds like he melted into the history and legends of the old west. OJ
