He was buried on March 20, However, the most often story told of the first person buried was a man hanged for murder. Making for a far more interesting tale, it has become the more preferred version. The second man buried at the cemetery was a Hungarian immigrant named John Stoefel. Having arrived in Denver to allegedly settle a dispute with his brother-in-law, he ended up shooting the man on April 7, On April 9, he was hanged from a cottonwood tree at the intersection of 10th and Cherry Creek Streets.
