Russellville (a ghost town), Arizona

Russellville is now a ghost town & was really just a camp of about 100 people
in the mid 1800's when the mines started operating in the Dragoon Mountain area.
But it had all the amenities of a small town. Then in 1883 the town of Johnson
came into existence, another mining town but near a railroad. They "absorbed"
all of Russellville a short time later. When copper prices plummeted in the
late 1920's, that town too became a ghost town. There is nothing left to mark
the existence of either town today and as a description of ghost towns go,
their remains have become "playthings of the wind".

There is no explanation that I could find to indicate the why or who
of the many numbered "unknown" wooden crosses in the cemetery.
