Biography

In his new (2017) book, DODGE CITY, Tom Clavin says that Wyatt's first wife was Aurilla Sutherland. He says that she was born 10 JAN 1850 in Illinois. She was the sixth child, second daughter of parents William and Permelia Sutherland, city people from New York. Born in Illinois, her family moved south to Lamar, Missouri, when she was ten years old. The Sutherlands owned and operated William's Exchange Hotel in the Lamar town square, which was three doors from a shop where Nicholas sold baked goods and oysters. Justice of the Peace, Nicholas Earp married Wyatt & Aurilla on 16 JAN 1870, six days after her 20th birthday. Aurilla was soon pregnant, and Wyatt was elected constable. In August, 1870, Wyatt bought a house next door to his parents and their two youngest and also next to Newton.

Everything was going so well for Wyatt and Aurilla!!! Then Aurilla died and the infant did not survive.

Wyatt fell apart and hit a downward spiral. He became a horse thief. He paid bail. He was never convicted. He became a buffalo hunter. He had several brushes with the law. Then Wyatt went to Wichita and found redemption.
