In 1912, Shady Davis, a young cowboy on a ranch 35 or 40 miles north of Mentone was dragged by his horse. His friends wrapped him in a wet sheet, placed him in a wagon and started to Pecos to the nearest doctor. Shady, being broken and skinned very badly, knew he was going to die. He ask his friends to bury him on a hill in the Slash Ranch where there is a panoramic view. His friends tried hard to dig the grave on that hill, but because it was almost solid rock they moved down the hill to a sandy place and buried their 21 year old friend there, 9 miles north of Mentone.
