TOMBSTONE TUESDAY: Humorous Epitaphs from the west

Here are some humorous epitaphs from the western part of the United States


Some Boothill epitaphs:

Carson City, Nevada, epitaph of a horse thief.

He found a rope and picked it up,

And with it walked away.

It happened that to the other end

A horse was hitched, they say.

They took the rope and tied it up

Unto a hickory limb

It happened that the other end

Was somehow hitched to him.

1884 epitaph in Phoenix, Arizona, graveyard:

“Here lies John Coll, a son of toll,

Who died on Arizona soil,

He was a man of considerable vim,

But this here air was too hot for him.”
