* NOTE: It's believed, through infield research, there is an additional 30 to 40 unmarked graves in this cemetery.
ADDITIONAL NOTE: Research provided by: "Ghost Railways of Central Arizona" by John W. Sayre. In it he states "At least seventeen men were killed in arguments in Crown King in the 1890's. Most of the arguments were over women. At least two additional deaths were suicides by men who searched in vane for their "fortune in gold" and came up empty-handed." This statement accounts for almost 21% of the burials we believe are at the CKC, with no markers or headstones.
