We followed the sign to the old Glenwood cemetery, only to find that no one actually knows where he's buried. Huh?
Apparently, he was penniless and they MAY have buried him in the pauper's section of the cemetery. The cemetery opened the day he died so in the grand opening his true spot wasn't recorded?? Couldn't the Earp brothers have ponied (yuk,yuk) up the money to bury him properly? If there's honor among thieves, wouldn't there be honor among slightly shady law enforcement officers?
Maybe he's still alive and living with Elvis and Amelia Earhart in a travel trailer somewhere?
Soo..what the town did was make a fake gravesite. I wondered if they actually know where he is but keep it a deep, dark secret so no one decides he needs to see the light of day again. Isn't it kind of embarassing they don't know where he is? How do you lose Doc Holliday? He was famous even then.
Even though the graveyard doesn't cost anything to wander through, I still felt gypped. Don't ask me why.
The most interesting part of the trek, besides the fact that it was about 17 deg. and there was still quite a bit of snow on the ground, was the ironwork on the fences surrounding the graves.
Doc Holliday's "memorial" site.
I mean, seriously.
