Josie Earp: Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp (1861-December 19, 1944) was an American part-time actress and dancer who was best known as the wife of famed Old West lawman and gambler Wyatt Earp. Known as "Sadie" to the public in 1881, she met Wyatt in the frontier boom town Tombstone, Arizona Territory when she was living with Cochise County Sheriff Johnny Behan. She became Earp's common-law wife for 46 years.

Wyatt Earp's and Josephine Earp's Headstone - according to an old newspaper article, after Josephine had Wyatt cremated she had taken his ashes with her back to San Francisco, where her family was from. She had his ashes buried in the Marcus family plot at the Hills of Eternity Jewish Cemetery in Colma, California. Her ashes joined his and they share a marker. The location had been kept a secret because no one wants their family plot to become a tourist site.
