I added a cleanup tag. This article needs some copyediting, and the facts need to be cross-checked against the article on Wyatt Earp. There are disagreements between the two. --Srleffler 06:55, 16 October 2005 (UTC)
There are no citations or sourcing whatsoever in this article. A real mess. --Lastexit 14:36, 22 April 2006 (UTC)
The final paragraph definately belongs in this talk section, and needs citation before it's added. 'My dad remembers it' isn't a valid source for Wiki I'm afraid! Xzamuel 03:36, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
Actual photo of Josephine Earp???
Although I was able to locate the source of the (alleged) photo of Josie, it is my understanding that there are no known photos of Josephine Marcus Earp from her time in Tombstone, let alone a photo by C.S. Fly. While the photo does resemble her, I have my doubts as to whether or not this actually is a photo of Josie Earp. Any comments? Suggestions? SkagitRiverQueen (talk) 22:58, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
There are people who keep discounting the photo of the woman who is half naked, or seductively dressed as Josie, but Josie is the one who put that photo on the front of her own biography book. So I asked the question, "Why put someone elses photo on your own biography?" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:43, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
Josie Earp is not the author of "I Married Wyatt Earp" or the person who selected the cover photo. Glenn Boyer wrote the book and selected the picture on the cover. Look up "I Married Wyatt Earp" on Wikipedia to see whether Mr. Boyer is a credible source of information. Look up the subject "Kaloma" or "Kaloma photograph" on Google to see the most likely background of the picture and once again Mr. Boyer's credibility. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 00:01, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
Name on tombstone
Why is the name on the tombstone "Stapp", not "Earp"? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 04:22, 8 October 2010 (UTC) AAF
Oops... disregard. I see that Stapp was a second middle name, with Earp on the top.

Johnny Behan and Tombstone, Arizonaaaa
"Marcus caused quite a stir in Behan's heart, and he left the pursuit in order to spend time getting to know the woman with whom he had fallen in love."
What? This is an encyclopedia not a Harlequin Romance. I'm going to delete this garbage. I'll leave this silliness:
"Soon after arriving in Prescott, however, Marcus became homesick and returned to San Francisco."
Orphaned references in Josephine Earp
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Josephine Earp's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 10:08, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
