Warren Earp grave.

Buried at the Old Willcox Cemetery; the only Earp buried in Arizona.

[Michael Cordeiro, 07/29/2021]

You have to wonder how tired he must have been of saying, "No, I'm WARREN, not Wyatt." Even the big metal plaque on his grave is reserved for the names of its sponsors. Nothing about him at all.
