Kenny I really appreciate this information! I am glad you looked further into that incident and shared it here. Now, it makes much more sense than just being one more of Warren's random angry antics. Seems that Warren had a couple of Aces in his pocket the whole time! I think when you publish your book you are going to need an appendix containing a flow chart or family tree style chart of all the Earp connections! Actually, in addition to your Morg book, you could probably write a book focused solely on all the Earp's connections - "Two Degrees of the Earps".

Thanks! -Neil

    Your mention of Warren being at Willcox reminded me of an investigation years ago into the fact he had been arrested and held in custody at Yuma in November 1893. The preferential treatment received... more

        Thanks Neil Brown. We also know that Wyatt in late 1888 and early 1889 was in Harqua Hala, Az., on a venture. Getting there from San Diego by rail automatically puts him in Yuma; at least in and out... more

          Wasn't Wyatt also elected constable in one of outlying districts of Yuma around 1905-1906? Hickey found the election documents and put them in his Warren Earp book, but let somebody convince him that ... more

          I seem to recall a presentation on this Harqua Hala adventure. IIRC, it was noted that Charlie Shibell was also in the area. Shibell might have still been in the Pima County administration. He seems... more

            1886 takes the cake. Having pieced together a 60-page bio on Warren I can vouch for his despicable nature on more than a few different occasions. His history of having women problems (such as leading ... more

                  Thank you very much Kenny. I believe what you found is an error regarding Kate. I encountered that "Kate" Ida Sanford, listed as living from 1860-1930, on Ancestry.com. Someone even include a photo... more

                    Warren wouldn't be the only Earp affiliate to receive his nickname at Tombstone. I do have a candidate for who was dispensing the nicknames, but without proof will avoid mentioning his name. I think... more

                      Thanks! Of course, I didn't really mean no one else received a nickname. I was really only referring to the Earp brothers, and Wyatt in particular. Wyatt was known as "the Lion of Tombstone" years... more
