Asked by Dilan Camacho

Meets Wyatt Earp

In the 1880 United States Census Blaylock is listed as Wyatt’s wife though there is no record of a legal marriage. Blaylock was said to have suffered from headaches, and while in Tombstone, Arizona, she became addicted to laudanum, a then-common opiate and pain killer.
