The town of Tombstone, Arizona was founded in 1877 by a prospector named Ed Schieffelin, who was staying at Camp Huachuca as part of a scouting expedition against the Apache Indians. He would venture into the wilderness “looking for rocks,” ignoring the warnings he received from soldiers at the camp. They would say, “Ed, the only stone you will find out there will be your tombstone.” Well, Ed did find his stone and it was Silver. Remembering the warning from the soldiers, he named his first mine The Tombstone.
In the first four years of activity, the mines produced about $25,000,000 (approximately $633 million today). During these years, famed killings took place in the Tombstone District, such as the Gunfight at the OK Corral with Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Billy the Kid and others. Other mystery killings included miners being found dead with rock drill holes in their chest.
