Something Adelia said in her memoirs, which many years ago I verified absolutely compatible with, and supported by contemporary records, 95 %, was a tidbit about Warren.
"I know for sure how Warren could fight. He did more shooting in Arizona than Mr. Lake knows."
While Adelia was very guarded about revealing negative info about her family members - such as not a peep about Lamar, what with multiple troubles transpiring there - she told many things about James Earp. Specifically impressive to her was all the places he had been. I was able to verify all of the locations mentioned except one. She said he had been to Oregon but I couldn't find it. Not for 12 years; until the advent of Chronicling America newspaper archives. Then BINGO - there is James checking into a hotel in Portland.
