BILLY THE KID, is considered one of Santa Fe's forgoten sons. As a young teen in the early 1870s, the Kid lived in Santa Fe, as a young teen with his mother, step father and half brother.
This was years before the Kid gained the moniker of "THE FASTEST GUN IN THE WEST".
The Kid's name depending on the source was Henry McCarty or William Henry Bonney. The Kid was born in a Brooklyn, New York, slum to a Irish imigrant, Katherine (maiden name disputed), on 70 or 90 Allen street.
BILLY THE KID's mother was said to have turned to prostituion when she first came to the USA. Some sources have it, the Kid was born out of wedlock, from her work as a prostitue.
Katherine, according to lore and fact landed in the USA, a victim of the potato famine. Her family dead in Ireland, she got passage to America to live with her realtives in Brooklyn. Upon landing in New York she learned they had died from waterborne disease. Katherine was pennyless and preyed upon, she did what she had to, in order to survive.
Katherine, fell in love with William Atrim and traveled with him around the USA. The Kid and his extended family traveled to where ever there was work.
According to lore, legend and witnesses, BILLY was smart, charming, educated, and a leader. The kid was described as having a slight build, blue eyed, and had lightening reflexes and eventually became a fantastic shot. One witness said his front teeth were large but he did to have buck teeth.
The Kid's mother, stepfather and step brother moved to Santa Fe where they ran a boarding house, washed laundry, and worked in businesses connected to the Santa Fe Trail. Billy's mother and step father were married in Santa Fe at the Presbyterian Church at 208 Grant Avenue on March 1, 1873.
The Kid fell in love with Santa Fe, according to lore, it is in Santa Fe, where the Kid learned to speak Spanish fluently. As a teen he went to school and worked odd jobs. Singing for tips in a plaza bar-resteraunt and washing dishes at the La Fonda hotel.
The Kid became friends with many people in Santa Fe. Eventually, BILLY THE KID moved with his family to Silver City, where his mother died of TB. Orphaned, with his half brother and step father working a grub stake-out of town, the Kid was jailed for hiding stolen clothes in his room from a Chinese laundry. The crime was said to either be a joke, or he was pressured into it by an adult named Sombrero Jack. This event backfired, The Kid was thrown into jail as a lesson. The Kid escaped, from then on his life is the stuff of a Greek tragedy.
Prior to his escape, The Kid had worked at a hotel-restaraunt while going to high school.
The Kid drifted throught the Southwest. The Kid became involved in the Lincoln County War, and became an outlaw. The Kid for the most part was loved by New Mexicans, and was hidden by the territory's Spanish population.
On July 14, 1881, The Kid was killed in Fort Sumner, New Mexico, by sheriff Pat Garret. There is dispute in how the Kid was killed, be it unarmed, in the dark, shot in the back, etc. It's ironic that Garret killed the Kid, for at one time they had been good friends.
The Kid was burried in a graveyard in Fort Sumner, that contained the remains of American soldiers, who had died while on duty at the fort.
Years later the Pecos River over flowed and washed through the graveyard. Grave markers, borders, vanished. After the waters recieded, the graveyard was recharted. Records were sketchy, the new grave markers were labeled as unkown but to God or unknown.
Controversy followed, it was claimed the Kid's grave was not remarked correctly. The gravestone over his grave today, is supposedly twenty to thirty feet from where it should be, according to some, the old grave is empty.
In 1906, forty five graves in the genereral area of where the Kid was burried, were dug up and reburried at the National Cemetary in Santa Fe. (ROSARIO). The remains were burried under markers that were labeled-unknown.
Lore has it, the Kid's remains were amongst the group that was reburried in Santa Fe.
Billy the Kid loved Santa Fe, it is likely he is burried in the town that he thought of as his home.
This area of the Rosario graveyard (BEYOND THE POSTER-LEFT SIDE) is where Billy The Kid could be buried or is likely buried. (THE AREA HAS MANY GRAVESTONES INSCRIBED--UNKNOWN)

NEW PHOTO OF BILL THE KID FOUND!!
Randy Guijarro bought this photo and a few others for $2 in a Fresno, California Junk shop in 2010, according to Guijarro, the photo cried out to him. Guijarro dabbles in wild west artifacts. Later on Guijarro had the photo authenticated, come to find out, after 5 years of dead ends,this photo is of Billy The Kid and his pals, at the wedding of Charlie Bowdree and his wife Manuela in late August or early September 1878. THe photos was taken weeks after the Lincoln County War ended, the croquet set belonged to the Kid's late boss John Tunstall. This photo is now estimated to be worth 5 Million dollars. Guijarro and wife pose at where the photo was taken, the building in the background is contemporary. The foundation or wood found in the ground at where the present building is located, date back to the original building's moorings. Also the background, which can not be seen that well in these photos, matches the 1878 photo.
The Presbyterian church in Santa Fe where Billy The Kid's mother and stepfather were married. In the record book, the kid signed in as a witness to is mother's marriage on March 1, 1873. The church is located on Grant Avenue. The church has changed little since WILD WEST DAYS.
The Kid's grave in Fort Sumner. Note the iron cage, this is because the grave stone keeps getting stolen. Also the Kid's plot is a shrine of sorts. People leave coins, flowers, bullets, you name it. Even in death, The Kid's legend, THE ROBIN HOOD OF THE WEST, THE PRINCE OF PISTOLEERS continues to grow. On a trans-Pacific flight to Japan, I noticed a Japanese man in a seat by me, pull out a stack of books. The man looked at his books, then picked one, put the rest away and started reading the one that he chose. All the books were about BILLY THE KID.
The area where supposedly the real grave site was located at, was exhumed in 1906. The Kid along with the remains of 45 other cavalry soldiers and a few civilians were unearthed and reburried in Santa Fe.
Yes, lore has it the graveyard has a strange pull and is haunted. By whom, I do not know. I have not done a investigation at this place, yet.
Note the indentation in the ground!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------To the left- these two pictures were taken by Kyle R., on one of Allan's Santa Fe ghost tours---what is it? Skeptics will say it is lens flash--- however through the decades -- or century plus--people who have rented in this area-have reported all kinds of haunted happenings. This building (SENA PLAZA) used to belong to Jose Sena-- who was a wild west politico --Jose was part of the Santa Fe Ring-- which was a 1870s-1880s Al Capone organization that Billy the Kid battled in SouthEast New Mexico. Some Weird Beards claim the ghost of Jose Sena haunts his old mansion which today is a business building.
On the left and bottom-- two ancient photos----is that a white jelly bean like face coming up the stairs--- this building was around when BILLY THE KID was roaming Santa Fe-- was it haunted then during WILD WEST DAYS---- or is the hauntings -- that of Jose Sena---who was a WILD WEST rascal!
At the Cathedral Cemetery-----yes-- this graveyard was around when WIlliam Bonney was walking around Santa Fe. This photo was taken during a ghost tour.
