Moving "remains" remains a mystery
These three different new clips appeared in 1913. John Roth was the Marshall of Hays City and also tasked with moving the remains from Boot Hill to the city cemetery at what is now 27th and Vine Street. The average salary in 1913 was $800 per year or $15 per week. Mr. Roth was paid $60 for this contract. There was no mention of how many corpses he removed.
