Wyatt Earp's ties to Hyde County?

The Earpe family line populated the US including Hyde County. They came from Maryland to Virginia and then spread out across the country.  

Cassie and Cola Smithwick lived across the street from Grandaddy Fletcher and Grandma Katie. They lived next door to Great Grandma Jennie and Great Grandpa James Henry.  Cassie Smithwick's family was from Johnston County NC. Her maiden name was Earp...yep...you guessed it...she was a cousin to the famous lawman Wyatt Earp. Their common ancestors came from the Maryland area. Cassie was Wyatt Earps fifth Cousin once removed! Cassie and Cola were gracious, sweet, funny, and I always enjoyed visiting them. It is too sad that their house has fallen into disrepair and will likely be gone from Ponzer forever. It should be saved for posterity. They were genuinely great people.

Cola Smithwick was first cousin to my Aunt Carol (Squires) Manning.
