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.
