Here are some humorous epitaphs from the West
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.
