Photograph taken in Tombstone, Arizona of 19-year-old Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp, Wyatt Earp's wife.

Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp and Josephine Sarah "Sadie" Marcus Earp. On a cabinet card from the firm of Dusseau and Thomson, who joined forces in April of 1887, Butte, Montana. Look at the way Josie is hiding her right hand, and Wyatt has his left hand prominently displayed. This is highly likely an image taken on the day they married. I will leave it to some one else to head to Butte and look for the actual license. Original image from the collection of P. W. Butler.

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.
