I always knew my husband was related to the Earp Brothers; Wyatt, Virgil, Morgan, and James. But, I wasn't exactly sure how so I got clarification at a recent family funeral. My mother-in-law's father was James Ralph Flippen.
His parents were John James Flippen and Effie Lee Burch (Burch being her 2nd husbands last name. Her maiden name was Earp.)
Effie's mother was Malinda Earp.
Malinda was a niece to the Earp Brothers. Pretty cool!
