COWBOY, FAIRMOUNT - Harmon County, Oklahoma | FAIRMOUNT COWBOY - Oklahoma Gravestone Photos

Fairmount COWBOY

Fairmount Cemetery
Harmon County,

In the southeast corner of the cemetery, a stone marker reads 'Fairmount Cowboy 1890'.
Story was that a drifter cowboy died. The locals buried him.
Nobody knew who he was. A cowboy said, "Well, he had a fair mount (horse)".
Thus, the name Fairmount Cowboy. That is how the cemetery got its name.
