Legendary outlaw William "Billy the Kid" Bonney (birth name: Henry McCarty) was buried in the Old Fort Sumner cemetery after he was shot by Sheriff Pat Garrett in 1881.

The tombstone is surrounded in a cage since it's been stolen three times. The placement is a guess, since the original wooden marker washed away in a flood.
