Neice of lawmen Earps (family tradition). I have not pursued more data on this family, but surely there would be considerable family information available due to the fame of the lawmen brothers who were allegally her uncles. I do recall aunt Lucy mentioning that she still visited this Earp family at Missouri in her later years. In June 2001 Esther (Braught) Fleanor gave to me photocopied pictures of Josephine in later years and a photocopy picture of young Joshephine with her children Annie Clark (about age 1) and Elmer Clark (about age four). Those may have been the names used by the family, but the records show children were Lucille Ellen and Edgar Orril. However, the large delay between marriage and birth of children shown here (21 yrs.) stimulates obvious concern for documented accuracy deserving added research. Photocopy of Josephine's WWII rationing registration at age 92 shows her living at 2502 Logan, DM, IA 5'5" and 125 pounds. Her books were held (signatures shown) by Orville and Lucy Braught
