My love of grave finding began when I was 8 years old in Washington's Crossing, PA. The US Army landed me in Hollywood, California and ultimately Fort Huachuca, Arizona.
I am a writer/historian currently involved in research projects involving Hattie Catchim (Earp) and the Earp Wives. I recently published and copyrighted "On the Paper trail of Big Nose Kate" a biography about Mary Katherine Cummings otherwise known as "Big Nose Kate". As a resident of Arizona, I have been a student of history and have been involved with research in many key Old West cities such as Tombstone, Tucson, Bisbee, Dos Cabezas, Superior/Globe and Prescott.
I am a proud Old West Re-enactor and travel when I can to many "Old West" states to reenact the life and times of historic women listed above.
I have a lot of research completed on many of the Ladies and Wives of Old West history, and consider myself fortunate that I have been able to be befriended by many people with a lot of knowledge about this subject including family members. I spend a lot of hours in places like the Arizona State Archives digging up records and census info.
Please feel free to contact me about Hattie, Kate, the Earp Women as I would love to pass on my info for others to learn from.

Catchim/Ketchum No problem, was just letting you know there was a dup out there. I totally understand moving, and how long it takes. I do not have this memorial so you will have to contact them to add the Ketchum. Hope you found your dream home!
William Calhoun Land (Col) #20117842 Hattie B Catchim #20117493 (created 2007)
your Hattie Catchim #79985282 (created 2011 not by you)
This is really confusing so I left the numbers above for you to research. I sent a message to you thru William Matthew Land and I don't even believe now that William Matthew is William Calhoun Land's son as he is not listed as a son in Ancestry. I hope this helps explains some to you.
Randall Graves I just realized that I've duplicated 2 of your memorials in Citizen Cemetery. I'm going to delete mine, but there is information on mine and additional photos not on yours. Interesting info for Katherine Zaff especially. Feel free to use the photos and info on your pages, and let me know when to delete. Thanks. Hollie
