Welcome to the
Exciting World of the Wyatt Earp Family

Links are being fixed.
Has ANYONE had a DNA taken to prove that they are
descendants of the Wyatt Earp family? I have someone that
cannot find a direct connection and wants to prove it once and

This WEBSITE has been composed so
that any of the Earp relatives can try to locate their link to our big
I have been doing genealogy research
since 1981 and at times it has been a wonderful hobby. I have grown to
adulthood thinking that I didn't have much in the way of relatives other
than my immediate family and two grandparents. Through this hobby, I have
found lots of other relatives and some wonderful tales of the Wild
West. Through this hobby, I have been
having a great time corresponding with a lot of my new found family. I
can't tell you how wonderful it is to know that there are so many of
I hope you enjoy our Earp Family
website. And I say "OUR" because I truly hope that all of you "Earpy's"
will join in and help us all get connected. Maybe we can all meet at the
Earp Family Reunions someday as I am compiling a list of these reunions to
add to this site.
At this point, I want to give credit
where credit is due. I found a lot of information from the books listed
below. The books that I am referring to are: First,
the Earp Family Genealogy by Jean Whitten Edwards. It is currently out of print
but you can find just about everything in it on this website.
Without Ms. Edwards' book we wouldn't have come so far in compiling this
family tree. Ms. Edwards' book consists of close to 300
pages. Second, the Earp
Genealogy by Wilmer
Sanner. It is published by W. M.
Sanner Company, Commerce & Water Streets, Baltimore, MD, USA. I
do not know if it is still in print.
I also want to thank so many
of you that have contributed your family lines to this family tree.
I get so excited everytime someone contacts me to add more to our
'tree'. Their names are mentioned throughout the family tree as I
try to acknowledge everyone that offers a contribution to our family
There are many more generations that are not shown on the
internet due to the respect for the privacy of many of the families listed
in the books. If you are curious as to whether you are included in
the 'private' records of this family tree, please feel free to write to me
and I will search the records for you.
Feel free to check out my links
(below) and have fun.
Thanks for stopping
I have too many 'irons in the fire' so please be patient and I will
Note from Sharon Wick:
I just hate it that we have to pay for everything that we want to look at.
I realize the people do a lot of work searching and then typing all the

everyone to look up certain things. Here are some links to things I have

At the request of
Detroit Society for Genealogical Research, I
have removed all information and links to their tables of
contents and articles from this website. Their 'out
of print' articles are copyrighted. Nowhere on their
quarterlies did it mention that they were copyrighted and
I didn't know.
Even though they can be reached at: www.dsgr.org you will not know that they have an abundance of
information not relating not only to the Detroit area but
also to places all over the country.
In the meantime, I have read the copyright laws and it
says they don't have to include a notice in their
periodicals, however it suggests they do it for OUR
benefit so WE don't get caught up in things like this.
I apologize for the inconvenience.
116th Illinois Infantry My
Great Great grandfather, Charles Grennel was in this Infantry.
Charles was also known as Charles Grinnell.
His marriage record to Milly Ann Earp was transcribed wrong as
Charles Grinville. If you look at the original record,
the handwriting was hard to read. *************************************
War links of which the Earp Family members participated
will be added as I find the time. :-)
