I was watching the GBU and I wondered if Arch Stanton was somebody that Blondie had known, maybe even killed, and knew where he was buried. It seems to me like a big coincidence that there would be a grave with the name Arch Stanton if Blondie just made it up.

Any thoughts?

Wasn't he told by Bill Carson that the gold was in the grave marked "Unknown" beside Arch Stanton's grave? So then Blondie wouldn't know who he was/is other then just some dead guy who's buried beside a lot of gold.

Yeah, Bill Carson told Clint, 'Blondie' that the $200,000 was in a grave marked 'Unknown' beside another grave marked 'Arch Stanton'. Blondie just told Tuco that the gold was in Arch Stanton's grave just to be careful that Tuco would not kill him and keep the gold for himself. ^-^

Just rewatched that scene again.
How old are the graves ? With the sandhills still on top they look freshly digged.
How come there's nothing left of Arch Stanton but bones?

Surely a body doesn't decompose that fast does it ?

Maybe Arch's corpse met some dire horrible fate, such as being eaten up by wolves and then left to bleach in the sun...

Or perhaps the guys who buried the casket got Arch's box mixed up with one that contained a guy who died much earlier....

What puzzles me is that everyone is talking about it as if it was a forename and a surname. The first time I saw the movie, I assumed it was a surname, "Archstanton". I can't see anything on screen that makes it two names -- has anyone any pointers?

Both "Arch" (short for Archibald) and "Stanton" are common names in English, respectively a common forename and a common surname. Here's a picture to confirm it:

I find it UNBELIEVABLY COOL that Arch Stanton met his demise on my birthday....well a hundred some odd years before it.

And a hundred and forty-six years before the day I got married.
