Frenchy was a Frenchman who ran "the most notorious saloon" in the mining town of Tin Cup, Colorado, at 10,157 feet (3,096 m) above sea level. He died in the 1920s. Nowadays Tin Cup is a hunting/fishing town of maybe 150 people in the summer, no one in the winter. But it was once a "wicked place" and the local gamblers made large profits off newcomers hoping to get rich from the gold mine. They hired marshals so that people would think the town was safe. The marshals were then told to see and hear nothing. According to the Colorado Historical Society, "the first marshal quit, the second was fired, the third was gunned down, the fourth was shot by a gambler, the fifth quit and became a preacher, the sixth went insane, the seventh was shot, and the eighth managed to finish out his term," probably because the gold was gone by then. The town cemetery has a Protestant, Catholic and Jewish section and a fourth section called Boot Hill where men died with their boots on from gunshot wounds. One grave in this section has the marker, "He drew five aces."
At Frenchy's, there's still good pie and potato salad. Only children are allowed to fish in the pond.
