Tombstone, Arizona - Boothill
The term “Boot Hill,” for the final resting place of those who “died with their boots on,” probably originated in Dodge City, Kansas.  Tombstone’s Boot Hill, used 1879-1884, fell into neglect after it was replaced by a cemetery just beyond the west end of Allen Street.  
The headstone that always comes to mind when I think of Boothill is:

Here lies Les Moore,
Six shots from a .44,
No Les,
No More.

Tombstone in the Camp Verde Cemetery  - I think the dearly departed had a sense of humor about himself.
