Wyatt Earp, famous western figure buried in . . .

I knew that Earp lived for many ears following his glory das in Los Angeles. What I did not know was where he was laid to rest. Wyatt Earp was cremated and his ashes were kept for a time by his wife Josephine; she later buried them in her family plot at the Hills of Eternity, a Jewish cemetery in Colma, California, near San Francisco (Josie’s family, Marcus, was Jewish). When she died in 1944, Josie’s ashes were buried next to Wyatt’s.
